After Tuesday’s CBS Evening News ignored the embarrassing leadership shake-up at Planned Parenthood, on Wednesday, CBS This Morning managed a minute of air time to discuss the abortion group’s president, Dr. Leana Wen, being fired by the organization’s board after just eight months at the helm. Liberal co-host and Democratic donor Gayle King was “disappointed” by the news.
The media must be exhausted from constantly moving the goal posts. First, it was why won't Republicans condemn President Trump and his tweets, then the condemnation was not sufficient and now, according to CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto are damaging the state of political discourse by calling the four Democratic congresswomen "whacko birds."
In his daily Axios AM newsletter -- widely shared among the top political reporters and editors in New York and Washington -- former Politico reporter Mike Allen takes the racism claims against Trump to a new level on Wednesday, calling it premeditated. The newsletter begins with the headline "1 big thing: Trump's premeditated racism."
Wednesday the co-hosts of ABC’s The View were thrilled at the Democrats’ petulant display on the House floor yesterday voting to rebuke Trump’s “racist” tweets he sent last weekend against four Democrat congresswomen. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg compared the Democrats to patriots standing up against Trump’s “tyranny”, while Sunny Hostin gushed over the “masterful” and “impressive” move by Democrats.
When not falling asleep in high school physics, I remember the teacher once saying that power could neither be destroyed nor created; it could only be transferred from one system to another, from one individual to another. It made enormous sense to me. Ever since the rise of the Media State in the 1960s, liberals have, for almost fifty years, decided who and what could be reported on, reviewed, attacked, demolished, whatever. They were the self-appointed gatekeepers to their “facts” and you were either onboard, were destroyed--or worse, ignored.
Legislators expressed their frustration with the lack of disciplinary treatment of Facebook at a Senate hearing yesterday. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) took a moment during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on “Google and Censorship through Search Engines” to complain about the Federal Trade Commission’s lenient stance toward Facebook.
Chris Pratt has gotten himself into some hot water in the last couple of days for wearing the classic Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag T-shirt. It’s racist, don’t ya know, having been adopted by Idaho Hitler Youth groups and Waffen SS sewing circles. But then again, some portion of Americans are dumb enough to let Colin “Pig Socks” Kaepernick tell them the Betsy Ross flag symbolizes slavery. Why not go down this rabbit hole too?
Liberal CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King gushed over the “impressive,” “passionate,” “committed” “squad” of far-left Democratic Congresswomen: Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley. In an exclusive interview, she encouraged them to explain what it was like to be attacked by Donald Trump. But then something unusual happened. King repeatedly pressed Omar about her anti-Semitic attacks against Jews and Israel.
Amid all the celebratory media coverage hailing the partisan stunt by House Democrats on Tuesday to pass a resolution condemning President Trump as racist, on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning, correspondent Peter Alexander particularly touted the “heavily diverse” liberal lawmakers supporting the legislation while “white men” in the GOP did not.
Big Tech’s biggest threat to democracy isn’t censorship or privacy: it’s election manipulation. At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, “Google and Censorship through Search Engines,” Dr. Robert Epstein, who researches the impact of Google, informed the hearing that “upwards of 15 million votes” were in jeopardy in the 2020 election.
If there’s one thing you can say with certainty about Sacha Baron Cohen, it’s that the liberal comedian and actor is consistent in his hatred for all things Republican. Even when he was nominated on Tuesday for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Variety Series, the driving force behind the defunct Who Is America? Showtime series just couldn’t resist taking shots at former Vice President Dick Cheney and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Perhaps trying to rival Stephen Colbert for most Trump-deranged evening host on television, MSNBC pundit and host Donny Deutsch went off the deep end while guest on Colbert’s The Late Show Tuesday over President Trump’s tweets against four Democrat congresswomen. Deutsch accused any American who voted for President Trump again in 2020 of accepting white racism, and claimed that we were living in “the most frightening time this country has ever faced.”
About a month ago, liberals blasted the Trump administration for "delaying" the release of a $20 bill with Harriet Tubman on it. But Alex Griswold at the Free Beacon noted that despite all the complaints from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, The Washington Post found that Obama officials said President Obama's promise of a Tubman bill by 2020 was never realistic. It wasn't just liberal legislators that left the wrong impression. It was liberal pundits on television.
Deadspin columnist Drew Magary on Tuesday went on a long rant about alt-right demands that sports media and athletes stick to sports. Such fans are cowards who support a racist president, oppose anyone with different political views and put the American flag in their Twitter handles, Magary writes in the post titled, "You're not sticking to sports when you're sticking to sports".
Could the term "Larval Scalias" become an internet meme embraced by both the left and the right? It started out as a result of a fit of anger by Esquire's Charles Pierce over the rapid pace of conservative judges appointed by the Trump administration but it might ironically end up as tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
