HBO’s The New Pope is still attempting to prove itself just as bad if not worse than its predecessor series The Young Pope. To do that, the show proceeds to show us how the cardinals and priests ruin lives and are generally terrible people. This time around, they push a woman into prostitution and cause a nun protest. There’s apparently nothing terrible that isn’t caused by someone religious.
While television networks largely celebrate abortion, it’s worth noting that a celebration of life is taking place, with the annual March for Life on January 24. Whether networks will finally give these peaceful pro-lifers their due in media coverage, after for years neglecting them, remains to be seen. Meanwhile, liberal television networks, from news shows, to actress spokespersons, to television dramas, continue to promote abortion to the public.
After everything we’ve seen from The Young Pope, the only way HBO’s follow-up The New Pope would stand out is if it tried to be reverent. Unfortunately, even after two episodes, it’s clear that we’re just going back to the same pattern of being obscene and insulting the Church. The “Second Episode” proves that with more nudity and a jab on how the Church “loves.”
Instead of directly trolling President Trump by name, the red MAGA hat made famous by the Trump campaign was weaponized in the season premiere of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. In three scenes of the episode titled “Happy New Year” airing on January 19, a MAGA hat made an appearance and was met with scorn.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an appearance on the new season of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night, and was greeted by a raucous 35-second standing ovation for impeaching Donald Trump. Maher touted the Speaker as a socialist Margaret Thatcher -- "our Iron Lady" of the Left -- and worried Pelosi wasn't appreciated enough by the extreme-left sector of the Democrats.
Not wanting to be outdone by Netflix, HBO presents its own anti-religious series in The New Pope. This companion series to HBO’s previous blasphemous, slanderous, and all-around unpleasant series The Young Pope is set to make up for the nearly three-year absence of terribleness. If the "First Episode" is any indication, we’re only getting started.
Less than 72 hours away from Christmas, and we still find a show denouncing and demeaning the Church. HBO’s His Dark Materials marks the day before Christmas Eve with a finale reminding us how the Church controls, oppresses, and frightens the masses for its own gain. Liberal TV clearly never takes a holiday break.
Bryant Gumbel's final HBO Real Sports program of the year ended Tuesday with a roundtable discussion on where things stand in the era of politics and protest in sports. Producer/correspondent David Scott issued the most provocative statements on the highly contentious subject, stating black protest is almost a patriotic duty and makes the country better. Bernie Goldberg said protests over gay rights and civil rights are fair game, but it's better when sports and politics aren't mixed.
HBO’s His Dark Materials is closing in on its finale which means we’re finally figuring out what’s going on in the story. In an unsurprising turn of events, the Church stand-in in the story written by a devout atheist is bad.
Following the conclusion of Friday’s edition of Real Time, the “Overtime” discussion focused on the conviction of former Trump associate Roger Stone and the President’s desire to have the Supreme Court block the release of his tax returns. One of the guests, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, expressed disappointment that despite people in Trump’s inner circle facing prison sentences, President Trump himself has not yet had a “moment of reckoning” while both Bruni and host Bill Maher wondered why his tax returns have “not been leaked.”
Real Time host Bill Maher concluded his satirical segment “New Rules” on Friday by advising his audience to “just celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t try to win it.” At first glance, his closing monologue might have seemed like words of wisdom for those who “see politics so differently from people who share your very blood.” But it quickly turned into a rant against “hate”-filled “rubes” and “Bible thumpers,” in other words, conservatives.
During his opening monologue on Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin’s refusal to concede; dismissing Bevin’s concerns about “irregularities” by sarcastically agreeing with him: “there were reports of black people who have been screwed out of their voting rights voting anyway.” Maher did bluntly crack wise that it was "worth a little blackface" for Ralph Northam’s Virginia Democrats to take over the state legislature in Virginia.
