Columbia Journalism School wants “a new playbook” for journalism in a “1.5 degree world” because “we believe the news business must also transform.” So they’ve handpicked a selection of global warming alarmists and far-left media to instruct the media how to change.
Don’t expect that change to be toward balance or giving climate skeptics any air time. But be sure to look for major media to join in. MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Vox are all part of the “journalism” event.
Tiger Woods, winner of the 2019 Master's golf tournament, is back – with a media-imposed asterisk. He's being advised that he must navigate his brand around his friendship with President Donald Trump. "Tiger Woods Can’t Be Apolitical in the Age of Trump and Kaepernick," writes Dave Zirin, the hard Left sports editor of The Nation.
It was a throwback to the bad old days of laughably obvious labeling bias at the New York Times. Reporter Tiffany Hsu Stark demonstrated the other end of that stark double standard on Tuesday, with the news that “Nation Editor To Step Down But Stay On As Publisher.” Hsu’s piece contained not a single ideological label to identify the hard-left magazine that has dallied for decades with defending totalitarians on the left. Yet the Weekly Standard, a right-leaning anti-Trump publication that was far closer to the mainstream of American politics, was larded with labels in articles fabout the Standard’s controversial shutdown.
For many Americans, social justice warriors in sports uniforms have disrespected our great nation and turned them away from sports. The Nation's Dave Zirin has made a slobbering career of apologizing for and glorifying these malcontents. He's written books on 1968 Olympic protester John Carlos and radical NFL player Michael Bennett. He staunchly defends Colin Kaepernick and others who politicize sports, too. Zirin is the "parallel universe," and this week he bitterly complains that Carlos and fellow '68 Olympic protester Tommie Smith are being disrespected by their alma mater, San Jose State University.
To help us sort out the tumult caused by a recent outbreak of "transphobia," The Nation's radical lefty sports editor Dave Zirin and a biology-challenged cast of woke "gender experts" are disparaging opponents of the growing transgender movement in sports. And it's quite a fine gender bending mess they've made. They claim that confused, angry cis-genders are spreading misinformation about what it means to be trans and how "sexed bodies" operate in the world.
Attempting to squeeze their way in front of the glaring spotlight that is the Super Bowl this weekend will be numerous social justice protesters. The Nation magazine reports that in Atlanta this weekend, the points of protest will surround racial inequalities, voter suppression and income inequality in Georgia.
A group of partisan, progressive athletes that includes current social justice warriors, kneeling NFL players, a past Olympic protester and others, has signed a last-minute get-out-the-vote letter. Known as Athletes4Impact, their stated motivation is the struggle against hate and violence. But guess who, in their view, is responsible for all the hate? President Donald J. Trump, of course.
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
In our latest visit to left-wing firebrand Dave Zirin, red meat sports editor of The Nation, we learn that Nike is unfit to brand the exalted prince of social justice activism, Colin Kaepernick. The conservatives he considers unfit, period, got a passing mention in this screed, as Zirin cut Nike down to size. It's all about Kaepernick and not about the Nike swoosh logo.
Just days after LeBron James opened his new school for under-privileged third- and fourth-graders in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, hardcore leftist Dave Zirin has given us another Chris Matthews chill-up-the-leg moment. The sports editor of The Nation, Zirin practically bows at the altar of "King" James, extolling the virtues of a school that is socialist in its essence and already political in nature.
It’s clear from MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes’s twitter feed, he was unhappy with the Supreme Court decision that limited the power of public sector unions.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Mark Janus, a public employee who took his union to court, in the Janus v. AFSCME case. Janus claimed being required to pay fees amounted to “compelled speech” because public sector unions are inherently political. In a June 27, 2018, decision the court agreed that employees of public sector unions should not have to pay such “fair share” fees because it violates their First Amendment rights.
This week's Edge of Sports podcast by radical leftist Dave Zirin could not have insulted more people. He likened NFL players to victims of the Holocaust and his guest accused the U.S., the world's greatest liberator of the oppressed, of "imperialism." The podcast is sponsored by The Nation, a far Left publication for which Zirin serves as the I-don't-stick-to-sports editor.
