New York Daily News sports, race and social issues columnist Carron J. Phillips has figured out the litmus test President Donald Trump uses to determine which sports champions receive invitations to the White House and those that don’t. It’s mainly based on the race and gender of the athletes, among other questionable motives. Which is why it’s better for the NHL Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals to follow the lead of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and NFL champion Philadelphia Eagles and not attend a celebration with the president.
Earlier this week, Reuters/Ipsos reported that its generic "How Will You Vote?" poll ahead of November's mid-term elections had swung into Republicans' favor for the first time this year, erasing a double-digit lead Democrats had just four weeks ago. This kind of movement would certainly be news at the Associated Press, the New York Times, the Big Three networks, and other so-called mainstream media outlets if a strong GOP lead were to disappear so quickly.
ABC, MSNBC, The New York Times and other media outlets on Wednesday and Thursday distorted Donald Trump’s attack on MS-13, the brutal gang of illegal criminals, into a slur on “undocumented immigrants.” On MSNBC, the network graphic misled: “Trump Calls Some Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant.”
In online news, there's "clickbait," a sensational headline which doesn't reflect the underlying story. The New York Daily News took that concept into the front page of its Tuesday print edition. Its headline — "DADDY'S LITTLE GHOUL" — included a photo of Ivanka Trump. The underlying article mentioned her only once in passing. We should call this "printbait."
It's no wonder we're being barraged by white guilt and black angst from the nation's sports media. According to the 2018 Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) Racial and Gender Report Card, most of the people working in sports media are white men, and the New York Daily News' Carron J. Phillips is none too pleased about this revelation. For him, sports media has more to do with the race of the reporter and less to do with the reporter of the race.
While observing World Press Freedom Day on May 3, MSNBC aired an advertisement encouraging viewers to watch not just that liberal channel, but also follow more than 25 other left-leaning sources and newspapers while not mentioning Fox, the most-watched news network on cable TV. The spot, which was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), begins by stating: “Don’t just watch MSNBC” and concludes with the motto: “Read more. Watch more. Understand more.”
Monday evening, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a purported "champion of women" and an "outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement," became a pariah in barely three breathtaking hours. At 6:47 p.m., the New Yorker published "Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse." Just after 10 p.m., Schneiderman, a Democrat who was the nationwide point man for state-level anti-Trump "resistance," resigned. The New York Times's handling of the episode appears to betray deep disappointment.
On the occasion of the annual NRA convention, in Dallas, New York Daily News sports writer Mike Lupica charges that President Donald Trump and his NRP friends are now living in fear of the high school students advocating against the Second Amendment. Without once mentioning mental health as a major cause in mass shootings, Lupica attacked Trump, Vice-president Mike Pence and congregants of the "Church of the Gun" who gathered in "Crazytown" to support gun rights.
On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, New York Daily News race-baiter Carron J. Phillips attacked white moderates who today are misrepresenting his message. He included President Donald Trump and Vice-president Mike Pence and also claimed that if Dr. King was alive today he'd be kneeling with Colin Kaepernick, dribbling with LeBron James and, as a good socialist, he'd be demanding that college athletes get paid.
Shortly after the Parkland, Florida high school massacre, the Associated Press and New York Daily News treated the fact that the NRA had given $10,000 in non-cash assistance to the school's Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, of which Nikolas Cruz had been a member, as some kind of scandal. Now, buried deep in a Friday Florida Sun Sentinel story, we learn that JROTC's leaders "banned Cruz from firing guns with the group during shooting practice" way back in September, 2016. That's more than a legion of others did to stop Cruz or get him help during the next 17 months.
Protecting American children has become a full-time job with awful content emanating from the entertainment industry with sex and violence at the forefront. This is especially true with an industry that’s bigger than even movies or television...video games.
By saying adios to two of the most woke players in the National Football League the Seattle Seahawks just got quieter and the New York Daily News just got louder. Daily News race-baiter Carron J. Phillips wants his readers to believe that by unloading Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman the Seahawks are the latest example of America's fear of woke athletes.
