The topic of white nationalists was handled in a heavy-handed way during the December 9 episode of Fox’s Rel. Rel (Lil Rel Howery), an African-American man, is a charge nurse in a Chicago hospital. In “Hate & Hip Hop,” his patient turns out to be a racist who fainted during a white nationalist protest rally. The white patient isn’t impressed when Rel calls him a blood brother, as they both have O negative blood.
During Sunday’s edition of Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace reported from the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California; where he and his panel reflected on the life of Former President George H.W. Bush. Liberal panelist Juan Williams used the opportunity to praise the late former President and contrast him favorably against President Trump; not an uncommon occurrence over the past 48 hours. Williams specifically focused on the difference between the two Presidents’ relationships with the National Rifle Association.
Since it’s the Thanksgiving season and we are practically at our wit’s end with the liberal garbage that pop culture constantly feeds us — particularly on mainstream television — it’s nice to take the time and sit back in gratitude for those rare fleeting moments where the showbiz industry shows some sense and appreciation for wholesome, traditional values.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
Remember how Fox’s Empire claimed two weeks ago that people are thrown in prison for being "born black or brown?" Apparently, that wasn’t enough for this show. The latest episode now has the claim that black and brown people are constantly threatened with death by the police anytime they're called on the scene.
The current hot-button topic of sexual harassment in the workplace took a turn during the November 4 episode of CW’s Rel. One woman tells her friend, “Now it’s our turn” to get revenge for the years of harassment she and other women experienced harassment.
Family Guy took a predictably anti-gun stance in the fifth episode of the show’s 17th season on Sunday night, titled “Regarding Carter.”
If there’s a theme in Star’s October 31 episode “Someday We’ll All Be Free,” it’s the suffering and healing of the black characters on the show, particularly the gay ones. The suffering of these characters is so righteous, that it is ultimately likened to the suffering of Jesus on the cross, and taken to mean that God has bestowed a special kind of love upon them.
Fox’s Empire has been pretty quiet this season, but sadly, all good things must come to an end. The latest episode has brought back the series’ blatant leftist politics by claiming people are thrown in prison simply for being black or brown.
During Sunday’s Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace contrasted front-page headlines from The Washington Post the day after Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was shot at an Alexandria, VA baseball field by a Bernie Sanders supporter with The Post's headline following the capture of mail bomb mastermind and Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc. Not surprisingly, The Post made sure to emphasize that Sayoc's political views were mentioned in the headline while the assailant's political leanings were not mentioned in the Scalise shooting headline.
New York Times reporter Adam Goldman tried hard to give the shooting of a violent trespasser at a local TV station in D.C. national anti-Trump implications, to conflate it with the president's verbal attacks on the media. Goldman couldn’t let a single sentence pass without involving Trump’s fights with the press, even though the incident had nothing to do with Trump’s press insults. "A security guard shot and wounded a man who forced his way into a local television station, the police said Monday, stoking renewed fears that journalists have become targets in a highly polarized political environment."
Hitting viewers over the head when it comes to their agenda on gun control isn’t new for Hollywood, but it sure rings hollow on a show like Fox's Star, where characters are pointing guns at each other at an alarming rate. Past seasons have involved gun deaths as well as main characters threatening to shoot friends and family members over disagreements.
