Democrats have warned they are coming after big tech. Now presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-MA, says she wants to break up the major tech firms. Warren has joined a chorus of political leaders on both sides of politics voicing their concerns about the impact of Big Tech on America’s well being. She published an opinion piece on Medium on March 8 proclaiming that big tech companies have “too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy.” She later added “we need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favor.”
Bill Maher had no problem working an insult against middle America into his opening monologue during the Friday night edition of Real Time. Maher talked about Jussie Smollett and how “he paid two men $3500 to assault him for being black and gay, something he could have gotten for free in Texas.”
Apparently George Soros does not want major tech companies to work with the U.S. government. The ACLU and nine other Soros funded groups joined with a coalition of 85 nonprofit groups to demand that major tech companies limit what they sell to the U.S. government.
On Friday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following joint letter to Amazon President Jeff Bezos calling on him to remove anti-Christian products that are available on the Amazon marketplace despite being a clear violation of company policies.
On paper, the new Amazon Prime original series Forever should be great. It stars Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph as June and Oscar, a middle-class married couple in California. Those two actors together should have made it a hilarious comedy. Instead, Forever was a rambling and pointless slog and, in the second episode, unnecessarily insulting towards Christians.
Taking a swipe at the Democrats as the return of Our Cartoon President aired on Showtime, Stephen Colbert’s animated show has House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer come up with a new slogan for Democrats in the 2018 elections. The slogan “We're Sorry” was hatched to win back voters on the July 15 episode titled “Russia Investigation.”
WASHINGTON — Milton Friedman was not only a brilliant economist — a Nobel laureate, in fact — he was also a gifted writer. In his 1962 book "Capitalism and Freedom," he presciently explained how health care costs were going to leap out of control over the next decades. Sure enough, they did. They multiplied from roughly $1 of every $20 being spent on health care in the 1950s to roughly $1 of every $5 being spent on health care today.
Episode ten of Amazon Prime’s Electric Dreams, based off of science fiction author Philip K. Dick’s works, attempts to draw parallels between an evil dictator and President Trump. The last episode of the season, which was released January 12, is based off Dick’s short story, “The Hanging Man.” In the original story, a man discovers a dead body hanging from a lamppost, is the only one to react, and then discovers aliens have taken over some of the town members. But in Electric Dreams’ liberal version, retitled “Kill All Others,” a tyrannical political leader (Vera Farmiga) asserts, “kill all others,” to the disbelief of only one man, Philbert Noyce (Mel Rodriguez).
The third season of Amazon’s Red Oaks aired October 20th in six thirty-minute episodes. A comedy series, it is a quick binge that is actually enjoyable. In today’s entertainment world, finding something fun to watch can feel like chasing a unicorn.
One could be forgiven for thinking Amazon’s Transparent couldn't possibly push the progressive banner any further. After all, the show is already about a family dealing with the fact that their father "Mort" now identifies as a woman named "Maura" and all that comes with the rest of the transition process. However, when it comes to most liberal ideologies, there are no borders. This new season includes the Israeli-Palestinian debate, yet another TV throuple, and an "historic first" - full-frontal transgender nudity!
Two out of the three networks on Thursday night and Friday morning yawned at Amazon’s BLATANT censorship of negative reviews for Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened. Only CBS This Morning noticed — with a scant 27 seconds of coverage — that the website is wiping out one star reviews.
I spent much of my Friday binge-watching Comrade Detective, a show that resists genre, but is perfect in its oddity. Released on August 3, Amazon bills the show as a Romanian detective show from the 1980s that was actually thinly disguised anti-capitalist propaganda. They then brought in such talent as Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to dub over the original Romanian dialogue. In reality, this is a new show created to make fun of these old propaganda pieces, and mocks their love of communism and fear of the capitalist west. Yes, it was filmed in Romania with Romanian actors, but specifically for this concept. It's weird, and it completely works.
