Well, we finally have the opportunity to see what the Obamas have up their media mogul sleeves. After announcing a multi-million dollar Netflix deal, the former first couple have spilled the beans on their new streaming content, offering diehard Obama fans several options for clinging to the “Hope” and “Change” social justice dream from the comfort of their living rooms.
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.
In stark contrast to most of his colleagues at CNN and in the mainstream media in general, Chris Cillizza, sees the Mueller Report as "very good news" for Donald Trump.
The liberal media are forever vigilant about racism and anti-Semitism among the "white nationalists," but go very soft when hateful anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam surfaces at public events. On Thursday, Farrakhan was invited to speak at a memorial service for the rapper Nipsey Hussle, and "mainstream" media outlets either skipped right over it, or noted it without criticism. CNN included Farrakhan in articles titled "The stars align for Nipsey Hussle."
Feminist Jill Filipovic usually draws notice by fervently promoting abortion. So it was strange that she came out hard against the death penalty in a CNN.com op-ed on Wednesday. The headline was "This Supreme Court ruling is exceptionally cruel." Convicted murderer Russell Bucklew is being executed by lethal injection in Missouri, which would be quite painful and drawn-out. (Many would ask the leftists if a firing squad would fit. Bucklew's lawyers suggested it.)
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
Ever since ESPN awarded Bruce for being confused enough to become Caitlyn, radical LGBTQ members and their media friends have moved to squash criticism that praising gender reassignment is insane. Of course, just like the gay agenda before it, trans activists started with demands that they not have to endure “hate,” but it’s quickly become a demand that society celebrates their delusion.
Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Yes, the Socialist Representative from New York will continue to make a big impression on pop culture in May, when she and the rest of the Democrat “Freshman Force” will take on villainous Republicans in a one-shot comic from the Devil’s Due publishing company.
If CNN's Chris Cillizza were the District Attorney on a Perry Mason episode, the famed lawyer could just sit back and relax because the prosecutor would make the case for him that the defendant was not guilty. This is basically the absurdity that silly Cillizza performed in his Friday column. After going through a lot of effort pointing out how the Donald Trump 2016 campaign could have colluded with the Russians, Cillizza concludes that there is no proof that such collusion took place. Case closed.
For tennis legend and gay rights activist Martina Navratilova, it’s clear that she’s far from being the hippest gal on the LGBTQ scene. In fact, for today’s biologically-challenged youngsters, the groundbreaking lesbian icon is persona non grata. Once again she has angered modern LGBTQ groups by insisting that trans women competing in female sports are “cheating.” After her statements were published in The Sunday Times, LGBTQ group Athlete Ally has severed ties with Navratilova, calling her words “transphobic.”
CNN's Chris Cillizza on Thursday rationalized the actions of former FBI acting Director, Andrew McCabe, who revealed that he and other top ranking DOJ officials discussed recruiting Cabinet members in order to remove President Donald Trump from office. Cillizza absurdly attempted to justify it.
