Look out, Comedy Central has another progressive message embedded in some wacky high jinks. The comedy outpost offers a reliably left-of-center bent to much of its original content. Think Broad City, which spent an entire episode fawning over twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Or programs like The Daily Show and The Opposition with Jordan Klepper. The space between their content and your average DNC email blast is microscopically small.
Former Obama attorney general Eric Holder made an incredibly sober and unfunny appearance on Comedy Central on Tuesday night's The Daily Show. Host Trevor Noah turned to the Jim Comey book, noting Comey trashed Trump, that "He's a liar, he mistreats women, he's not fit to be in office." Holder quipped back: "Well, Jim got those three things right." But what about what he got wrong?
During the late Tuesday/early Wednesday edition of CBS’s The Late Show, actress Drew Barrymore professed her love for the work of liberal comedian and host Stephen Colbert, praising his work now and previously on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report as having taught her so much and made “the world a more smarter, educated place.”
It would be interesting to know if there’s a “pay gap” at CNN. If so, it’s terribly unfair. The network’s female employees run down all things Trump with just as much skill and vigor as their male colleagues. CNN International and PBS host Christiane Amanpour was a guest on Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show on Thursday. She came to promote her new show Sex and Love Around the World, but stayed to tell Noah that she enjoyed his “wonderful profile of Trump’s new chief economic advisor.”
The writers of Comedy Central’s anti-business Corporate are exploiting the tragedy of 9/11 to get a rise out of conservative viewers. Star Jake Weisman told The Daily Beast, “Honestly, I want Fox News to see it and I want them to get really mad,” regarding their season finale mocking the tragedy that resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people. Corporate writers are apparently oblivious to irony as this week’s episode exploits 9/11 in order to portray businesses as exploiting 9/11 for monetary gain. Clearly pandering to a liberal audience’s desire to see corporations accused of egregious evils, Wednesday’s finale, “Remember Day,” features a fictitious world where a business attempts to turn the anniversary of 9/11 into a profit making national holiday, complete with goose dinners, office parties, and red, white, and blue apparel.
Comedy Central’s lame replacement for the Colbert Report, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, is even worse than Colbert at disguising their liberal agitprop as hiding behind a mask of idiotic conservatism. On Tuesday night, Klepper brought on his cast mates Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, pitched on screen as "Authors of F**k the Poor: A Conservative Guide to Comedy.”
To offer a corporate tribute to a national school walkout for gun-control measures, Viacom -- which owns several major cable networks -- "will suspend regularly scheduled programming for 17 minutes" at 10 am on Wednesday. Liberal student activists will take over MTV's Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. MTV, VH1, Logo, Comedy Central will have orange (the color of gun violence prevention) logos until the "March for Our Lives" on March 24.
Doubling as a weekly liberal media pep talk, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter featured ludicrous spin from liberal Comedy Central host Jordan Klepper on gun control, complaining that the gun control viewpoint has been insufficiently covered in the media, and the NRA falsely has created a “narrative” that their opponents want to take people’s guns away.
Despite calling themselves feminists, liberals constantly slam conservative women without remorse. On Wednesday’s episode of Comedy Central’s anti-business show, Corporate, “The Long Meeting,” Hampton Deville Board of Directors member Bill Hathaway (Fred Willard) announces, “So that concludes the story of how I got laid by Margaret Thatcher. Great at sex but...terrible at politics.
In addition to being anti-business, Comedy Central’s new show Corporate is also anti-religion. On Wednesday’s episode, Casual Friday, Hampton Deville’s CEO announces, “We all know there's no God, but there is a ton of money to be made in His name,” in anticipation of meeting with power/money-hungry Glorious Salvation Ministries representative Alyssa Armstrong. CEO Christian Deville meets with the cross-bearing representative of the largest group of mega-churches in the country to discuss how Hampton Deville will furnish them with flat screens, massage chairs, and snacks, in return for the corporation’s logo being broadcasted all over the churches. Or as Alyssa puts it, “Every time my congregants go to pray, they'll be thinking of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and Hampton f*cking Deville."
Sticking with the overdone evil corporation theme, Comedy Central’s new anti-capitalist show, Corporate, takes on fracking in its January 31 episode, “Trademarq.” The wicked corporation Hampton Deville suffers from aggressive protests and vandalism due to its use of super fracking. Additionally, one of the main characters imagines himself punching God. On his way to work, the Hampton Deville CEO is greeted by sign-wielding protesters chanting and even throwing things at him. He discovers that business-hating street artist Trademarq has painted a picture on the doors of the building depicting the CEO shooting the earth with a gun
All corporations are evil, according to Comedy Central’s new show, Corporate. In classical liberal fashion, Wednesday’s episode perpetuates the liberal stereotype that big business is corrupt and its employees are miserable. The third episode, titled, “The Pain of Being Alive,” describes the unhappy lives of corporate employees, even indicating the number of “suicidal thoughts” the average employee has per day.
