On Friday, CNN sent out an alert for an article suggesting Americans are murderers and are responsible for the death of a woman killed in a flood. Why? Because Americans contribute to climate change. This misuse of alerts normally reserved for actual news is nothing new. CNN now promotes propaganda via mobile alerts on a regular basis.
What do you get when former presidents are used in a weird plot meant to bring old friends together and teach them some lessons in friendship? You get Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, released on August 4, 2017. The bizarre story was told in eight 30-minute episodes and, along the way, former President Reagan was depicted as a diabolical nuclear warhead thief and involved with several poop jokes for good measure. Yes. Really.
The most obnoxious segment of Netflix’s Chelsea airing on August 4th involved two liberal California Democrats and the glimpse they give into the minds of the far left in the early days of the Trump presidency.
Dahlia Lithwick and Mark Joseph Stern hyped in a Wednesday item for Slate that "hard right" Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's "fingerprints are all over" the Trump administration, due to the fact that many of his former clerks now hold "high places" there. Litchwick and Sterm played up that Thomas's "once-fringy ideas are suddenly flourishing," and touted that he is "close buddies with Rush Limbaugh...[and] fringe radio dogmatist Mark Levin."
The author of a Tuesday column on CNN.com called on companies and organization to make "gender-neutral" language mandatory in the workplace, as American society supposedly needs to "move beyond the assumption that everyone should assimilate into the categories of male or female." Heath Fogg Davis, a transgender academic, proposed that employers should "require that everyone adopt a gender-neutral pronoun." Fogg Davis contended that such language would "minimize the opportunities for others to evaluate our gender and risk getting wrong something so important."
Just when you thought Netflix’s Chelsea could go no lower on the lame scale, Chelsea Handler proves you wrong. In the July 28th episode titled “The Future Is Now,” Handler calls President Trump “our brainless monkey in the White House.” Ugh.
When the establishment press isn't criticizing center-right outlets as fact-challenged and not objective, it's dismissing them as irrelevant and unimportant. If that's really the case, that would lead one to wonder why a seasoned New York Times reporter was bothering to look at a story published at Breitbart.com, let alone tweeting his breathtaking ignorance about the content of that report's first two sentences.
Just before noon, the Associated Press ended almost 18 hours of silence on the arrest of IT staffer Imran Awan yesterday as he was attempting to leave the country. The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman's claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest.
Last week, Bustle.com published an interview giving insight into the detached reality of two members of Comedy Central's The Daily Show. Desi Lydic is a field correspondent and Michele Wolf is a writer and on-screen contributor for the not-so-funny comedy show. Lydic lamented the horrible world of Trump.
In an appearance Sunday morning on ABC's This Week, New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer teased his party's economic plan which will be unveiled Monday. One hopes, probably in vain, that it incorporates an understanding of basic economics. Schumer betrayed the fact that he has little to no such understanding when he declared that "gas prices are sticky," and that when the "price for oil goes up on the markets ... it never goes down." This Week host George Stephanopolous was to so interested in pushing Schumer about "single-payer" health care, aka a full government takeover of health care, that he didn't even notice (or pretended not to).
As you might expect, former Obama staffers turned podcasters now gleefully attack the Trump administration as incompetent and those working in the White House as liars. In the July 21st episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “When Chelsea Met Harry”, President Trump was referred to as the “asshole in office.”
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.
