Late night ABC host Jimmy Kimmel touted his own intelligence and the need for comedians to be political activists during a friendly interview with liberal podcast hosts Crooked Media before a live audience this past weekend in Hollywood.
With former Vice President Joe Biden making the rounds on his book tour, many in the media have been fawning over the idea of him running for president in 2020. But during HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the panel had a reality check for all those hoping and praying for Biden to be president. “And the other thing too is, going back to our previous story, in this environment where groping is obviously on the outs, do we really want Joe Biden as a nominee,” wondered Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast.
It’s OK when the feminist media say it, but not when Kellyanne Conway says it: today’s feminism stands for abortion. On Friday, MSNBC correspondent Ari Melber, filling in for Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word, invited panelists to discuss (or, rather, attack) Conway for her recent comments on feminism. All three – CBS News Sunday Morning contributor Nancy Giles, Fordham University associate professor Christina Greer and Daily Beast senior editor Erin Gloria Ryan – criticized Conway for linking feminism with abortion.
Things got very twisted on MSNBC’s The Last Word Monday night, as two giggly journalists smeared Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for invoking Rule 19 against his colleague from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren. CBS’s Nancy Giles described McConnell as on a power trip, “I mean, it's like I think they are drunk with power. It's not ‘like,’ they are. They’ve got the House and they’ve got the Senate.” The Daily Beast’s Erin Gloria Ryan took it a step farther and joked that Senate Republicans really were drunk Tuesday night.
Pantsuit Nation—the secret Facebook group for first hopeful, then grieving, Hillary fan girls—has inspired an upcoming book based on members’ stories. However, when founder Libby Chamberlain excitedly broke the literary news, it sparked immediate division in the feminist camp.
Erin Gloria Ryan, Managing Editor of the feminist site Jezebel frequently tweets out inflammatory and hateful snarks about conservatives. Sometimes her attacks are so malicious they would spark a media outrage if she was a writer for a conservative publication.
For example, Ryan tweeted out last Dec. that she wished Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was dead instead of actor Paul Walker. Well today she tweeted this out about the recent decision to clear police officers in the death of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
When liberals and their media allies have an agenda to push, they’ll use any tool at hand. The left often rails against the presence of religion in civic life, mocking conservative Christians as “Taliban” agitating for theocracy. But other times, they find faith to be a handy weapon to bludgeon conservatives. And they’ll go so far as to reinterpret and rewrite the Bible to justify any liberal cause, no matter how outrageous.
In 2010, MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry summed up this strategy in her call for “re-imagining the Bible as a tool of progressive social change.” Huffington Post contributor Mike Lux embraced Harris-Perry’s advice, writing that the Bible embodies “all kinds” of “liberal, lefty, progressive values.”
Forget your biological clock, ladies. Here’s another internal timer set to ring: the abortion alarm. Just for you, Jezebel’s Erin Gloria Ryan confirms that 25-years-old is the perfect age for an abortion.
“There's a point where [a woman is] financially and emotionally mature enough to support a child and her body is still capable of making babies — but what about the alternative?” Ryan asked in breezy piece for Jezebel, the site of “gossip, culture, fashion, and sex for the contemporary woman.”
So let's get this straight. According to the folks at Gawker, pedophilia may well be just another sexual orientation that should not be illegal. But college kids owning guns and living in gun-friendly dorms, well, that's just plain craziness.
In a dismissive post published yesterday afternoon, Gawker's Mallory Ortberg scoffed that, at least so far, no one was clamoring to move into a planned dorm at the University of Colorado which will be open only to students who are at least 21 years old and who have concealed-carry permits:
