Fox’s The X-Files has been working overtime on their anti-Trump agenda this season, but they’ve truly outdone themselves with this latest episode. In a fictional world full of conspiracy theories - even parallel universes - where people seem to reject objective truth, one thing never changes: Donald Trump must be mocked at all costs.
After completely ignoring for the better part of three days the shocking revelations that the FBI had somehow managed to lose five months worth of text messages, ABC finally found the story during Wednesday’s World News Tonight. And with their late arrival came a heavy spin campaign to make it seem as though it was nothing more than baseless accusations from a panicked Republican Party.
With the protest-filled 2017 NFL season set to come to an end in a couple of weeks, the league found itself engulfed in controversy Tuesday when they banned an ad from a veterans group asking people to “please stand” for the national anthem. It was a truly sad story, but the none of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) felt the need to report it to their viewers during their evening broadcasts.
The revelations concerning missing FBI text messages continued to snowball on Tuesday as news trickled out that, via the remaining 50,000 texts, the FBI was home to a so-called “secret society” that began meeting after President Trump was elected. And despite how the revelations have been reported by other major news outlets, the three major network news outlets have been reluctant to cover them. ABC still had yet to report on the missing text messages, NBC was finally dragged to it, and CBS had started to downplay it.
There were disturbing revelations out of the FBI over the weekend when it was learned that the bureau had somehow lost roughly five months of text messages between an anti-Trump investigator and a lawyer he was romantically involved with. Since then there have been calls from Republican members of Congress for another special counsel to investigate the FBI’s shady handling of the Clinton e-mail and Russia investigations. But despite this bombshell news, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have been dead silent.
Congressional Republicans and President Trump declared victory on Monday over the Democrats in the government shutdown, as the Resistance could hold out no longer and voted on the continuing resolution to fund the government. In exchange, they received a promise to negotiate and vote on DACA in the next few weeks. The three major network news outlets were notably disappointed and frustrated that their party caved after just three days.
Medical drama The Resident premiered on January 21 with its pilot episode, in which we get to know the doctors at the fictional Chastain Park Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Chief of Surgery Dr. Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood) is highly-respected but, it turns out, it kind of a a jerk, and has an interesting take on the state of American immigration.
On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached.
ABC kicked off Sunday’s Good Morning America with five minutes dedicated to the government shutdown. And despite the fact that Democrats were bragging that they had the votes to do it, the liberal network trashed Republicans and touted how President Trump would take all the blame.
Forty-five years ago, on January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion on demand the law of the land. Sixty million abortions later, we are still battling over the disastrous ruling, in court and in the culture wars.
The January 18 episode of Will & Grace was as offensive as ever. They took a bizarre number of shots at the Bible out of nowhere as well as delivering some stale Russia "jokes."
The Trump administration took a large step in defending religious freedom on Thursday when the Department of Health and Human Services unveiled its new Conscience and Religion Freedom Division. The new division, which was a part of its civil rights office, was tasked with ensuring “doctors, nurses and other health providers to opt-out of services that violate their moral or religious beliefs.” In spite of the good news, the three major network news outlets and both Spanish-language networks ignored the story during their evening broadcasts.
