New York Post
In the absence of real live sports, The New York Post is desperately grasping for anything remotely having something to do with sports and athletes to fill up space. So desperate, in fact, that Wednesday's and Thursday's editions featured women's MMA fighter Paige VanZant and her husband doing some raw cooking and working out at home. As in the raw raw, in the buff, bare nakies.
The New York Post sports columnist Phil Mushnick is an anomaly in a business dominated by left-wingers. He's not afraid to call out race-hustling, the progressive politics of sports media or sleazy Super Bowl halftime performers. This week he had Spike Lee, former NBA player Charles Oakley and pandering media in his crosshairs.
Wednesday’s signed lead editorial by Mara Gay of the New York Times editorial board attacked a conservative news rival the New York Post while demading that New York Democrats to buck up on the newly instigated "bail reform," despite the street violence that has already resulted from the controversial policy: “Democrats Run From Their Own Shadows.” Gay flirted with blaming victims of violent crime for the movement, in this case Hasidic and Orthodox Jews as well as its more conservative tabloid rival the New York Post.
Only in this nutso, PC era can sports records be referred to as "ill-gotten achievements." That's how the New York Post's Phil Mushnick refers to a college basketball player's recent 100-point game. It's not an achievement to be celebrated, but something inappropriate and politically incorrect.
The liberal media-dubbed “patrician populist” Tom Steyer, who once decried “‘the corporate stranglehold on democracy,’” has continued to spend millions on liberal causes this election cycle. Steyer is the top federal contributor to outside groups, according to data from Open Secrets. In total, he contributed $23,987,925 to liberal causes in the 2020 election cycle, now having outspent 15 of the top conservative donors combined ($23,460,327).
Without any NFL-style political correctness to protect them, three high school football coaches in New Orleans recently lost their jobs. The head coach and two assistant coaches at St. Augustine High School are now unemployed because their players were singing an n-laced fight song before their games. If that happened in the NFL, the commissioner who hired vulgar rapper Jay-Z to direct Super Bow halftime entertainment would probably look the other way, writes New York Post sports columnist Phil Mushnick.
Around Tuesday afternoon, news reports started breaking that anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was accused in divorce filings of stealing the husband of a Washington, D.C. mother, Dr. Beth Mynett. The liberal broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC, who normally flock to such stories when they involve porn stars and President Trump, were nowhere to be seen on these accusations during their evening newscasts.
Somehow one just knew this was coming.The virulent anti-Semitism that has been metastasizing through the American Left and the Democratic Party is being given a pass by the Leftist State Media. As Nicholas Fondacaro has noted correctly, the blatant anti-Semitism of Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI), who have been barred from Israel by the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been covered up by the Big Three networks.
CNN host Chris Cuomo made an absolute fool out of himself in a viral video released Monday night where he’s seen threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs. The man insulted Cuomo by using the Godfather-based insult “Fredo” (the dumb older brother of the main character and mob boss Michael Corleone), which the CNN host ludicrously claimed was an “ethnic slur” equivalent to using the “N-word.”
Dante de Blasio is the son of Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has abandoned his crime-wracked city (but not his public office, tax-subsidized salary or perks) for a quixotic presidential bid to become America's social justice warrior-in-chief. Calculated to promote his race card-playing dad's campaign, Dante stoked anti-cop hysteria a few weeks ago with a widely disseminated USA Today op-ed.
Fox Sports claimed the World Cup soccer champion American team lifted the nation and a gender. The progressive sports blog SB Nation calls U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe "love" and "a godlike figure." One courageous sports writer isn't drinking that Kool-Aid though. Phil Mushnick, columnist for the New York Post, disputes those claims, says the American team invited scorn and calls Rapinoe a "a foul-mouthed stage hog."
As the saying goes, “all politics is local.” That sentiment seemed to seep into CBS News’s Thursday reports on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio throwing his hat into the 2020 race. In both flagship morning and evening newscasts, anchors and reporters alike mocked the Democratic candidate. During CBS This Morning, co-host John Dickerson quipped: “Bill de Blasio is the answer to what question that isn’t being [asked]?”
