Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is such a tease. The California mega-donor teased the media with a presidential run early in 2019, only to announce he wasn’t running. Now new reports suggest the major Democratic contributor and founder of Need to Impeach and NextGen America may jump into the crowded 2020 Democratic field after all.
It was just 19 days ago that TMZ Sports and Newsweek magazine stirred up talk about the NBA possibly changing the way it refers to team owners. To the ultra-sensitive, it's supposedly a racially insensitive title. At the time, Newsbusters reported there was no pressure from the NBA to succumb to this over-the-top political correctness, but now the league's commissioner is talking about doing away with the O word, notes CBS News.
The final episode of season three of CBS All Access’s streaming show The Good Fight aired May 16. It’s a given that the show is anti-Trump. The writers portray President Trump and his administration in the worst possible ways on a regular basis. But this episode, titled “The One About the End of the World,” includes an odd scene, even for this show.
A $1.25 trillion giveaway program to college grads and future college students deserves scrutiny, not praise as a “bold,” “sweeping” or “ambitious” plan that could “distinguish” Sen. Elizabeth Warren from her Democratic competitors.
Some news stories, including CBS and NBC online, bordered on being a sales pitch for the plan to forgive student loans and make public colleges tuition-free. CBS boosted Warren’s claims that forgiving student loan debts for millions of Americans “could supercharge the economy,” (even though liberal economists have contradicted that claim in the past). It even asked “What’s not to like?” and only cited one Twitter’s complaint it would be unfair to people who didn’t go to college.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren has grand ambitions for spending other people’s money. Her latest proposal was (by her own estimation) a $1.25 trillion policy proposal for student loan forgiveness and free college.
CBS News made a $49,950,000 error when it reported that Warren’s reparations plan “would also create some incentives for black students and lower-income families such as a fund with at least $50 million for historically black colleges and universities.”
Is there any stereotype that leftists like to push more than that all Republicans are racist? Or neo-Nazis? What better way than to do that than through a bunch of rural white supremacists driving pick-up trucks suppressing black voters?
Apparently, the folks at NBC News are gluttons for punishment. During Monday’s edition of NBC Nightly News, the news organization boosted claims made by lawyer and proven huckster, Michael Avenatti that shoe giant Nike was bribing high school athletes to go to schools with Nike deals. NBC treated the claims as serious while downplaying the federal extortion charges against Avenatti for allegedly trying to shakedown Nike for over $20 million.
In what world are human smugglers and traffickers considered unsung heroes? In the upside down world of liberal media land, apparently. CBS News was heavily criticized this weekend on Twitter after tweeting out that “coyotes” were "helping" immigrants illegally across the U.S./Mexico border.
Season 3 of CBS All-Access’ surreal drama The Good Fight returned last Thursday and critics can’t stop raving about the Trump-bashing show. A spin-off of the Emmy-winning The Good Wife, which ran on CBS from 2009-2016, The Good Fight ostensibly follows Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) work at a historically black Chicago law firm, but mostly documents her three year freak out over the election of President Trump.
Season three of CBS All-Access's The Good Fight is off and running with the issue of sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement. In the episode that aired March 14 titled “The One About the Recent Troubles," President Trump’s alleged scandals involving women other than his wife are brought into the mix.
In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
An arm of the “world’s biggest news and information provider” is suggesting #MeToo helped the U.S. becoming one of the most dangerous countries in the world for women. That puts it on par with Syria – a country accused by the U.N. of government-endorsed rape.
