Trump’s Rosebud: New Documentary Draws a Comparison
Discerning observers of the current political scene who are familiar with the culture and sensibilities of early 20th Century America understand something the millennials cannot.

Scarborough Apologizes for Saying He Doesn't Care If Hunter Jailed
So who got to Joe Scarborough? His wife Mika Brzezinski? His bosses at MSNBC, including head honcho Rashida Jones? Could it have been Jen Psaki, Biden’s former spox, now Scarborough's MSNBC colleague, letting Joe know he crossed a line? Or was it a call from the White House, rapping Joe’s knuckles? Or did the MSNBC suits themselves perhaps send Joe that iconic horsehead-in-the-bed clip from…
NYT, NPR Bash Popular 'Sound of Freedom' Film on Child-Trafficking
The New York Times’ initial review of Sound of Freedom, a thriller based on child-trafficking-buster Tim Ballard, was negative but nonpolitical. But now that Trump has spoken up, the Times has jumped back into the media-manufactured controversy, as did taxpayer-supported National Public Radio.

PBS Film Fest Runs With Abortion, LGBTQ,'White Supremacist Patriarchy'
Publicly funded PBS sponsors a sort of film festival of short films, gathered from their public media partners and PBS member stations nationwide.

Morning Joe: Trump's a Pathological, Weird, Criminal Hoarder

NPR on Film: Loves Eco-Terror, Hates Capitalism, ‘Transphobic' Rowling
National Public Radio’s ideological bias extends to its movie reviews. Fresh Air’s “critic-at-large” John Powers praised a new movie about a band of eco-terrorists fighting the energy industry: "How to Blow Up a Pipeline" review: Contrast that with the ideological contempt NPR critic Aisha Harris displayed toward a feel-good movie about how the famous “Air Jordan” sneakers…
PBS Never Satisfied: ‘Oscars So Male’ and Other Academy Award Gripes
Media activists who obsess over “representation” in Hollywood (think the #OscarsSoWhite hash-tag on Twitter), will never be satisfied as long as there are ways to slice the racial-gender figures of directors, actors, award nominees, and box-office results so that liberals will come away disappointed in the alleged lack of “representation” at the movies. The Oscars are a prime season to air…
CNN Edits Out Oscar Winner's Slap At Lemon For 'Past Her Prime' Insult
CNN This Morning airs portions of the acceptance speech by Best Actress Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh. But the show edited out Yeoh saying, "Ladies, don't let anybody tell you you are ever past your prime."
