Even in this feminist era, some personal choices women make can still be made fun of, especially when they involve Fox News women. The latest exhibit is New York magazine's “Political Peroxide – Blonde privilege” by Amy Larocca. The magazine’s Fashion issue features “plus-size” model Ashley Graham on the cover and acceptance of “fat girls” inside, making Larocca’s attack on blonde women -- conservative blonde celebrity women in particular -- as “a wink-wink to the power of racial privilege” all the more jarring.
There was bizarre news out of the U.S. State Department on Wednesday as the Associated Press reported that U.S. diplomats had to return home from Cuba after experiencing “physical symptoms,” which included “potentially permanent hearing loss.” The mysterious incidents led to the United States expelling two Cuba officials from their Washington, D.C. embassy. Despite the stunning revelations, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gave the story zero time later that evening.
In a statement to the press on Tuesday, President Trump declared that the United states would fight and win the battle against opioid addiction. Despite the fact that opioid overdoses killed tens of thousands last year, with 2017 on track to set a grim record, ABC and CBS skipped over Trump’s latest statement and new recommendations from his opioid commission. NBC was the only network in the Big Three to even mention them.
The journalists at Good Morning America on Tuesday could barely contain their contempt at Donald Trump’s “strange” and “bizarre” fascination with Fox & Friends. The President retweeted several stories from the Fox News show and this apparently doesn’t sit will with ABC. Yet the ironic part is that ABC didn’t cover an ObamaCare story that Trump tweeted about. Apparently, it didn’t occur to the reporters that such bias is why the President goes around the mainstream media.
During Tuesday’s Special Report, Fox News Channel confirmed that the Pentagon had suspended their program that allowed certain immigrants hastened U.S. citizenship, the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI). “Lawmakers tell us the program has been, quote, "compromised." With reports that some enrollees are unaccounted for tonight and fears of foreign infiltration spreading across Capitol Hill,” announced Anchor Bret Baier at the top of the show.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota has been making appearances recently to discuss her new book, Amanda Wakes Up, which is a fictional work that is nevertheless based in part on her past experiences working as a FNC host for the weekend edition of Fox and Friends. Camerota -- who left FNC to join CNN three years ago -- has been showing this past week a greater willingness to criticize her former employer -- yesterday on CNN's Reliable Sources, going so far as to charge that her old FNC show "unnecessarily stoked outrage" and "took a really myopic view of, say, President Obama or the current administration."
On Friday morning, Daily Kos founder and publisher Markos Moulitsas faintly -- very faintly -- praised Republicans for their straightforwardness while damning them for their supposed hostility to political freedom. The post’s headline: “Republicans are totalitarians, and they’re being more honest about it every day.”
MSNBC’s boosters in the liberal media have a way of exaggerating their ratings victories. On Monday, The Huffington Post gushed in a headline “MSNBC Makes Network History With Stretch Of No. 1 Cable Ratings: The channel enjoyed a week as the winner.” But a look at the full calendar week shows Fox News won the ratings race for the full calendar week, both in prime-time and total-day measurements.
Late Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl.) had fired shady I.T. staffer Imran Awan after being arrested trying to flee the country amid a criminal investigation. And yet the “big three” networks ignored this piece of breaking news.
CNN's New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota had Brian Stelter interview her about her new book, Amanda Wakes Up. In this interview, she took another jab at the network that made it possible for her to succeed. She criticized Fox for wanting things portrayed a certain way, which is hilarious considering the disaster of a network which is CNN.
Mainstream media bias isn't just against President Trump, but also Israel. On Friday, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS published headlines equating three terrorists behind clashes in the West Bank during the day with three Israelis who were stabbed to death the following night in the area.
Friday morning on Fox & Friends, Washington Post Writers Group columnist Ruben Navarrette, Jr. gave President Donald Trump only grudging and partial credit for the steep decline in illegal border crossings from Mexico into the U.S. so far this year.
