Liberal media outlets were quick to shill for former President Barack Obama’s recent swipes at President Donald Trump. CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post all pushed liberal spin stories elevating Obama’s tweet, which took two veiled shots at the Trump administration. One alleged the administration’s denial "of warnings of a pandemic." Obama’s other shot bleated about the consequences of “climate denial” over Trump's decision to roll back his auto emission standards.
Stephen Curry's Wednesday Instagram interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, gave viewers a break from "fake news" on COVID-19, writes Mark Medina of USA Today Sports. President Donald Trump is the alleged source of that fake news, and the Golden State Warriors all-star guard gave former President Barack Obama and other viewers "actual information."
Hall of Famer Rich "Goose" Gossage made "incendiary" remarks about Democrats and baseball, and progressive sports writers are blowing gaskets about the "infidel" criticizing their preferred political party. Gossage said baseball teams are watering down spring training workouts and over-using analytics to ruin the game, something akin to Democrat control freaks in politics. His political comparison prompted quick rebuttals from writers at USA Today and the blog 12Up.
To win the Red Smith Award for sports writing is tantamount to having one's left-wing credentials enshrined by the Associated Press, which has given this accolade since 1981. Mitch Albom and Bob Ryan, among others, are past winners, and neither is known for conservative views. Nor is Christine Brennan, a USA Today writer who claimed the award for 2020.
Colin Kaepernick emerged from behind his caustic Twitter account Tuesday to use USA Today Sports as a platform for his unrepentant anti-Americanism. The NFL reject announced he's planning to release a memoir later this year through his own publishing company. It's sure to be a great stocking stuffer for social justice warriors everywhere.
Some of the most vociferous voices in support of athlete protest are crying foul over the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) recent policy announcement preventing inappropriate political activism at the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. U.S. women's soccer star Megan Rapinoe says she won't be silenced, and USA Today is bitterly denouncing the IOC's stance.
The media’s report card on Ricky Gervais’ Golden Globes gig proved as brutal as expected. Variety called Gervais’ performance “tame.” The L.A. Times was even colder with its takedown. The USA Today reviewer described Gervais’ performance as “dull": "There were a few chuckles to be had, but even fans of Gervais’ harsh brand of humor would likely be disappointed."
It was an inevitable, though farcical and ridiculous, ploy of the left-stream media to hoist Colin Kaepernick onto a pedestal in a review of sports in the past decade. USA Today's For The Win blog argues that he was the most important athlete of the decade. This is not a joke!
The media won’t concede that guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Even when armed churchgoers stop a gunman and prevent a mass shooting this past Sunday, some journalists used this event as a way to argue for more gun control.
In an op-ed picked up by USA Today January 1, editorial columnist for The Arizona Republic and azcentral Elvia Diaz turned the parishioners who heroically drew their weapons on the shooter into villains.
Democrats omitted the "trivial little" matter of "high crimes and misdemeanors" from their impeachment of President Donald Trump, and USA Today's Nancy Armour follows their lead in her sports version of "impeachment." She rationalizes her mockery of sports impeachments because the Republicans are doing the same with the political impeachment.
CNN's Jeffrety Toobin refuses to believe the results of CNN's own poll, showing a rather dramatic drop in Democrat support for impeachment: from 90% down to 77%. Here was poor Jeffrey, in the depths of denial: "I don’t believe that poll for one second, the 90 to 77%. I don’t believe it. It makes no sense that that number would change like that . . . David, that poll is wrong. Just because I said so, okay?"
Last Sunday, CNN's Brian Stelter complained on Twitter that Fox & Friends responded to the Times and Globe pieces with an on-screen banner, "MEDIA DECLARES TRUMP SHOULD BE IMPEACHED." Stelter fussed: "Who's writing those banners?!" By now, impeaching Trump has now been endorsed by The Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, USA Today, and The Washington Post.
