No matter what President Donald Trump does, Hollywood celebs will always stoop for reasons to ridicule him. Trump’s secret visit to U.S. soldiers in Iraq on Wednesday was met yet again with unrelenting hostility from Hollywood and the news media, because as long as he’s him, and president, they will remain completely deranged.
After Melania Trump called out the “opportunistic” media during an interview with Sean Hannity, and after the First Lady’s spokeswoman came to her defense during the ensuing media brouhaha, lefties in showbiz and the media have doubled down on the insults. They’ve taken to slamming Mrs. Trump as a “hypocrite” and a “birther,” while also hurling attacks at her “unrecognizable” appearance, particularly at her new, blonder hair.
While she used to shy away from the word, one big name star is now embracing the term “feminism.” On Sunday, Matter of Fact With Soledad O'Brien aired an interview with actress Charlize Theron and Kweku Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela. While speaking, Theron addressed equal pay and insisted that she was a “fucking feminist.”
A Youtube prankster’s viral video accusing Delta Airlines of anti-Muslim discrimination made national headlines early Wednesday. But the man behind the video has a proven record of faking stories for attention and the media didn’t think twice before reporting his unsubstantiated story.
The latest breaking news in US foreign relations concerning the end of Cuba’s Castro era was debated among Cuban-Americans on the cast of Monday’s Morning Joe. The MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski invited three Cuban-Americans: FOX News contributor and author Humberto Fontova along with GOP strategist Alex Castellanos to discuss former CNN host Soledad O’Brien’s defense of President Obama’s controversial comments about Castro’s “complicated” legacy. Evidently, the death of the Communist dictator who played a central role in sparking the Cuban Missile Crisis at the height of the Cold War, remains subject to ideological interpretation within the mainstream media.
The latest liberal media freak-out about the Trump transition commenced on Friday morning upon the announcement of Republican Senator Jeff Sessions (Ala.) as President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for Attorney General and were led by CNN’s Carol Costello lashing out at the “controversial” Sessions who should “concern” Americans and linked him to hate crimes since the election.
On his Sunday show Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter brought out a panel made up a proverbial who’s who of Donald Trump opponents to whine about how the media are being “unfair” to Hillary Clinton and going easy on Trump. “All year long, I have been hearing one very specific description of the election coverage,” Stelter stated to start off the first segment, “No, it's not bias, but it's close, it's false equivalents.” Guest Jacob Weisberg of Slate soon described Hillary v Trump as "an apple and some rancid meat.”
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien appeared on Sunday’s Reliable Sources to add her name to the list of liberals who argue that calling the rioters in Baltimore “thugs” is just “a proxy, is a word we use instead of the N-word.” O’Brien asserted she “can't think of a situation where there's ever been a headline or someone has called a white young person who is in the middle of a violent protest demonstration, whatever, a thug. We use it all the time when we're talking about people in the inner city.”
Washington Post music critic Chris Richards wrote up Saturday’s Earth Day festivities on the national Mall on the front of Monday’s Style section. The headline was “At Earth Day rally, it was the message that needed saving.”
Richards liked the music, but didn’t like the talking. For example: “The event’s hosts, newscaster Soledad O’Brien and Black Eyed Peas bandleader Will.I.Am, appeared to have a rough time of it. O’Brien, either frustrated by glitchy teleprompters or perhaps not clear on how a concert works, actually shushed the crowd at one point.”
When a liberal network producer promises you a "fair and balanced" treatment of your organization, it may be okay to trust, but you absolutely must verify. That's the lesson that the American Kennel Club can provide for conservatives, business owners, and pretty much anyone who is a likely target of a sensationalistic liberal media hit piece. Let me explain.
On April 7, AKC representatives sat down for a 30-minute interview with HBO's Real Sports contributor Soledad O'Brien about allegations from critics that the Club's breed standards inevitably lead to unhealthy purebred dogs, some of whom die rather prematurely. The AKC made sure to record the entirety of the interview for their own records so as to respond to a biased hit piece if and when it should air, which it did on the evening of Tuesday, April 22.
On Thursday, Al Jazeera America's Soledad O'Brien posted an incendiary and snarky reply on Twitter to a headline from a homosexual news website claiming that a social conservative Christian organization had concluded that it is "better to die than live in pro-gay world."
Anthony M. Brown, one of the subjects of her left-wing propaganda flick for CNN, "Gary and Tony Have a Baby", forwarded this misleading headline on the social media site. O'Brien quoted Brown's Tweet, and added her own two cents:
In the immediate aftermath of the Navy Yard shooting the liberal media reflexively began their push for more gun control. NBC’s Matt Lauer, on Tuesday’s Today show pressed an outspoken chief medical officer that treated some of the wounded: “You say you didn’t want to wade into the issue of gun control and yet your comments are resonating with people...but we also heard emotional comments after Newtown and Aurora, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Are you worried that your comments will be soon forgotten, as it seems some of those other comments have been forgotten?”
Lauer’s plea to the doctor represents how desperate the liberal media has been to keep the gun control issue alive, even in the face of recent political losses like the defeat of Barack Obama’s gun control legislation in Congress and the recall of anti-gun state legislators in Colorado.
