In May 2010, a determined but hapless jihadist tried and failed to set off a bomb on a busy Saturday night in Times Square. Looking back at that botched terrorist attack in the heart of midtown Manhattan, two things stand out -- the magnitude of the explosion had it been detonated, and Rachel Maddow's hand-wringing for the alleged Miranda rights of the suspected bomber.
I say "alleged" because there is a public safety exception to Miranda that was invoked by the FBI, just in case the accused was part of a wider plot and might be compelled to spill his guts and thereby prevent the slaughter of innocent people, instead of being promptly told upon his arrest that he could clam up and hide behind a lawyer.
CBS’s Wisdom of the Crowd has already built up an anti-conservative reputation despite only being five episodes in, so it should come as no surprise that the sixth episode, “Trade Secrets,” that aired Sunday, November 12, took more shots at the right.
After the fifth episode of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, I now have to accept that the humor must either be liberally biased or vulgar. Often both. She reached new heights of vulgarity last week (outside of gratuitous nudity, of course) and this week she doubled down on the anti-Trump rhetoric in “honor” of the one-year anniversary of the election.
Comedy Central’s Broad City is known for its outrageously inappropriate humor. But Wednesday, October 26th’s episode, “Witches,” went beyond outrageous into extremely bizarre and depraved. One thing is clear after watching this shockingly vulgar episode…Broad City does not care about or welcome conservative viewers.
Hillary Clinton has been making the rounds with the liberal media in recent days to promote her latest memoir, What Happened, in which she casts blame on nearly everything under the sun for her embarrassing defeat by Donald Trump. On Wednesday, Clinton appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 where she was treated to a softball interview with Cooper himself.
With Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election memoir due to be released in the next couple of days, the two-time failed presidential candidate appeared on CBS News Sunday Morning for a sit-down interview with host Jane Pauley. And as would be expected from someone working for the company publishing Clinton’s book, there was almost no pressing from Pauley on what Clinton did wrong. But there was plenty of connecting with Clinton on the pain of the embarrassing defeat.
Freeform’s The Bold Type, which centers around three young women who work at fictional Scarlet magazine (based on real-life Cosmopolitan magazine), is one of the most left-leaning, not to mention inappropriate shows, on television right now. (Freeform was formerly ABC Family and The Bold Type has been dubbed a teen drama, despite its extremely adult content.)
The mainstream media’s ongoing crusade against President Donald Trump hit yet another new low on Wednesday afternoon, August 23, when Wolf Blitzer, host of the Cable News Network’s weekday Wolf program, let a Democratic guest slam the Republican occupant of the White House as “out of control” and compared Trump’s attacks on the press to tactics used by Nazi Germany. Blitzer teed up the attack by asking Rep. John Garamendi of California: “So we all saw one version of President Trump last night in Phoenix. We saw another version today. How do you reconcile that?”
The July 25 episode of The Bold Type “If You Can’t Do It with Feeling,” ran with the idea of the Trump era creating a culture of fear and hate, and used that false fear to excuse violence by the left.
During the Monday edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota got into a surly argument with Scott Taylor, a Republican Congressman from Virginia and former SEAL (Sea, Air And Land officer) regarding whether the press should give extensive coverage of the tweets posted online by Donald Trump.
If there's ever a "most pathetic correction ever" contest, the one posted by the Associated Press late Friday afternoon, conveniently ahead of what for many Americans will be a very long holiday weekend, has to be a serious contender. The wire service won't even acknowledge that it's a correction at its APnews.com site, instead calling it a "clarification." No one should be fooled. The AP's folly appears to have been triggered by an appropriately labeled correction posted at the New York Times Thursday evening which, as Kristine Marsh at NewsBusters noted Friday morning, "admitted (that) one of the media’s major talking points about the (government's) Russia investigation wasn’t actually true."
On Thursday evening, CNN.com ran a story by reporter Thomas Frank which, according to a now-posted Editor's Note, connected "Anthony Scaramucci with (congressional) investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund." The Editor's Note tells the network's readers: "That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted." Further, "Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci." Then, in a Monday evening bombshell, Fox News's Howard Kurtz reported that "Three journalists (have) quit CNN in fallout from (the) retracted Russia story" — although it's possible they may have resigned instead of getting fired. What in the world happened?
