Megan Rapinoe is no longer satisfied calling the shots just for women's soccer. She's demanding that male soccer superstars get with the social justice program, too. Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic need to get active to clean up the problems plaguing men's soccer, Rapinoe said.



Last Thursday's NFL melee between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns ended in one ugly, violent brawl. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett ripped the helmet off the head of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hit him over the head with it. The league suspended Garrett indefinitely. Believe it or not, USA Today is comparing President Donald Trump's Tweet against a House impeachment witness to Garrett's despicable thuggery.



President Donald Trump's recent surge in sports attendance is hardly a coincidence, writes one of his biggest sports media detractors. He recently attended a World Series game and a UFC event, hosted the baseball champion Washington Nationals at the White House and this Saturday he'll be in attendance at the LSU-Alabama football game.

 



In reporting on the World Series Champion Washington Nationals visiting the White House Monday, reporters and President Donald Trump expressed surprise that a key player on the team wore a MAGA hat. USA Today played the story pretty fairly, but The Washington Post and The Week were decidedly critical.



Talk about a long wind-up leading to media coverage of the World Series! USA Today's Gabe Lacques' Saturday story on a Houston Astros controversy started with a six-paragraph hit piece on President Donald Trump. Lacques writes how the president will arrive late at Game 5 in Washington D.C., so as not to delay fan arrival for the big game, and by the way, Trump has a low approval rating and 44 percent of Americans want him to be impeached.



Facebook is taking a free-speech approach to political campaign ads, and letting users decide what is or is not fake news. Naturally, the left is upset about it. President Trump’s re-election campaign launched a new ad both on television and social media last week that condemned Vice President Joe Biden’s role in the Ukraine controversy. 



Wonder of wonders, the normally staunch and reliable USA Today defenders of all things LGBT actually allowed an opinion piece by someone opposed to transgender athletes taking over women's sports. Anita Y. Milanovich, a constitutional attorney from Butte, Mont., says transgender athletes deserve compassion, but they don't have a right to transform women's sports.



How many people have to join before something becomes a “movement?” If the cause is climate change, the answer is fewer people than there are in Homer, Alaska: population 5,697. Even though there were only a little over a thousand signatories that day, USA Today hyped a new “climate change movement,” called “No Future, No Children” Sept. 19. Eighteen-year old Canadian Emma Lim has pledged not to have children until her government “takes serious action” on climate.



With the NFL's quarterback injury toll mounting, the volume on media calls for Colin Kaepernick's return to the NFL has risen to a deafening roar this week. His apologists always call for NFL teams to sign him when a quarterback goes down with an injury, but they've really ratcheted up the anger and intensity in the past couple days. USA Today's Nancy Armour and ESPN First Take's Max Kellerman top the list of shrill media bludgeoning the NFL for declining to restore the anti-American Kaepernick's pro football career.



Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer are two of the wealthiest anti-fossil fuels crusaders. In June, Bloomberg promised to spend another $500 million eradicating coal and starting to target natural gas power plants too.

Yet, USA Today failed to connect the dots between either billionaire and the left-wing groups, including the Rocky Mountain Institute, it turned to as experts in an anti-natural gas story Sept. 9.



On Saturday afternoon, CNN followed up on its Friday morning hosts gushing over the NFL's Ryan Russell coming out as bisexual by continuing to do its part to promote gay rights as CNN sports analyst Christine Brennan predicted the NFL must "encourage" more gays to come out so that it can be "viable" in the future.



Like an adolescent seeking attention, Beto O'Rourke, desperate for any hook to hoist his pitiful polling position, has resorted to puerile vulgarity. O'Rourke has glommed onto the issue of mass shootings as his last, best shot to salvage his drain-circling candidacy. O'Rourke was a guest on CNN's "State of the Union" this morning. Guest host Dana Bash began by playing a clip in which O'Rourke, addressing a group yesterday regarding the shootings in Texas, called the situation "f---ed up." CNN bleeped out the vulgarity. But when Bash invited O'Rourke to comment on the situation, he again spoke of it being "f----ed up," and this time, CNN didn't bleep it.
