Throughout the years masked crime fighters have faced some pretty scary enemies, though Marvel and the stars of the studio’s latest blockbuster (maybe -- time will tell) Captain Marvel, may have outdone themselves in presenting an even more terrifying uber-baddie. In 2019, enter civilization’s greatest foe … sexism. According to an Entertainment Weekly article, “Intergalactic odd couple Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson return to 1995 to fight aliens,” and “Sexism.”
Entertainment Weekly’s 2018 year-end double issue wasn’t as politicized and anti-Trump as the 2017 edition, but it contained this stark contrast, a “Worst Books of 2018” sidebar mocking a Christian book author's "cultural appropriation" and "white privilege," that shared the page with an homage to former First Lady Michelle Obama and her autobiography Becoming.
If there was any doubting the political sympathies of Entertainment Weekly, the front cover of the Fall TV Preview hails the revival of the CBS hit comedy Murphy Brown, starrring Candace Bergen. It was revealing to compare how enthusiastically EW greeted the return of Murphy Brown, to how the magazine greeted the return of the comedy Last Man Standing, starring right-of-center actor Tim Allen -- with second-degree questioning of Allen's political beliefs.
CW strikes again to defeat the bigots and the homophobes. After just recently casting transgender activist Nicole Maines as a transgender superhero, the broadcasting company has made another statement by casting openly lesbian Ruby Rose as Batwoman.
The media are very worried about Justice Kennedy leaving for one main reason: abortion. On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. The media immediately expressed fury that, with a pro-life judge as replacement, Roe v. Wade might be overturned. The 1973 Supreme Court decision legalized abortion on a federal level in the United States. Overturning it would leave abortion up to the states – but media figures from The New Yorker to Salon warned about abortion vanishing.
GQ magazine attracted controversy with a pseudo-irreverent, provocative list in its May issue, "21 Books You Don't Have to Read Before You Die." The overarching tone is an ideology-first assault against the dreaded oeuvre of Dead (Racist/Sexist) White Males, with GQ gleefully ripping the reputation of books unjustly bolstered in the Western canon by white privilege, as a review of the piece in Entertainment Weekly made clear. GQ's introduction set the juvenile, hectoring tone: "Some are racist and some are sexist, but most are just really, really boring..."
Liberal film critics hate the new remake of Death Wish. They REALLY hate it. So much so that it sounds like the NPR, the New York Times and Los Angeles Times reviewers are sharing talking points. Or maybe it's just a lefty mind meld.
Entertainment Weekly’s year-end best of double issue (dated December 29, 2017 – January 5, 2018) came with its standard anti-Trump and pro-Obama political slant scattered throughout the publication, including this gem of a headline: “Jimmy Kimmel: In Trying Times, The Late-Night Jester Became A Surprising – And Compelling – Voice Of Reason.”
It’s a story that continues to embarrass The Walt Disney Company and affect its bottom line. The Disney-ABC Television Group has been unrelenting in using ABC plus cable networks like ESPN, Disney Channel, and Freeform to push far-left propaganda onto the masses.
Entertainment Weekly is making another ill-advised dip into politics in its November 10 issue, hailing the apparent new trend of “woke” romance novels: “Love Trumps All -- Across social media and in their work, artists are reacting to the current political climate. But none are doing it as swiftly -- or forcefully -- as romance-novel writers.” it featured a silly graphic of a set of romance paperbacks topped with a pink “pussy hat.”
The country’s top film critics are in love with the liberal agenda of Al Gore’s new Inconvenient Sequel, gushing at the "Shakespearean" Gore “saving the world” “one lecture at a time." The global warming film has more of a “meh” response overall. It’s at 67 percent on Metacritic and 75 at Rotten Tomatoes, but Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times, among others, are fans.
