During the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of NBC’s Today show on Thursday, correspondent Stephanie Gosk teed up a fawning interview she conducted with five Latina celebrities campaigning for Democrats and urging liberal voters to head to polls during Tuesday’s midterm elections. The reporter hailed the effort by the Hollywood “powerhouses” as they blasted President Trump.
Liberal activist and actress America Ferrera showed up at the View’s Hot Topics table Friday to give her opinion on the Senate hearings Thursday with Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford. The actress went on a hysterical tirade against the “white [Republican] men” in Congress whom she saw as wanting to maintain a white majority in the country and “take away” women’s rights and votes, like in the dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale.
NBC’s comedy Superstore joined the ranks of other Hollywood shows that devalue unborn human life, likening a preborn baby to a “horrible parasite eating and pissing inside” of the surrogate mother and comparing him/her to a “bag of garbage” who should “figure out its own gender.”
The New York Times’ resident chatterer Philip Galanes took his usual perch on the front of the paper’s Sunday Styles for his “Table for Three” Q&A, with Hillary Clinton and “Ugly Betty” actress America Ferrara, “Pain and Progress After 2016 -- Hillary Clinton on the election’s emotional toll and a path forward.” Among the many pretentious photo captions from the late lunch at the Lambs Club in Manhattan, which transpired a few days before Clinton’s book was released: “Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Ferrera and Philip Galanes discussed the future of democracy.”
There are no words to describe how infuriating it is to hear details about the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl by an 18-year-old illegal immigrant at a high school in Montgomery County, Maryland. The illegal alien (named Henry Sanchez) denied any sexual contact, but there is no denying that the sanctuary city policy where the school is based has become a huge problem.
Three days after the far-left Women’s March on Washington, CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin played the role of publicist, relaying new interviews she conducted there and promised them that she’ll “check[ing] back in every ten days” in lockstep with their Ten Actions in 100 Days plan.
The focus of NBC’s “Shots and Salsa” episode of the big-box-store comedy Superstore was racism. According to Amy (America Ferrera), the request from her boss, Glenn to pass out salsa samples is racist because she is a Latina. She refuses and the boss goes to another Latina, Carmen, who is willing to do the task.
This headline is a bit amazing: “ABC Family Orders Transgender Docuseries Produced by Ryan Seacrest.” Pat Robertson sold his Family Channel, and Disney is taking it in an entirely different direction. In 2011, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced that ABC Family was the most pro-gay network of the ten networks it reported on. In the summer of 2013 came The Fosters, their lesbian-parent drama. Now comes a real-life show called My Transparent Life, centered “on a teen named Ben who learns his parents are not only getting a divorce, but also that his father is becoming a woman.”
While liberals complain that Fox News is too helpful in offering its air time for Republican candidates and campaigns, MSNBC continued the recent string of NBC-Universal properties bowing to President Obama with gobs of unchallenged free air time. On Thursday night's Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC offered two large chunks of a speech Obama gave to the DNC's "Gen 44" initiative for young people. Seconds before the first speech clip, MSNBC aired a 15-second NBC public service announcement starring Obama. (See Mark Finkelstein on that.)
The event was a fundraiser expected to raise $750,000. Two honorary co-chairs of the DNC effort are the actors America Ferrera ("Ugly Betty") and Dule Hill ("The West Wing" and "Psych").
This wasn't a standard presidential press conference or interview. This was a campaign event, aired by Maddow in a four-minute clip and then a five-and-a-half-minute clip, both followed with analysis by liberal Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson. In both clips, Obama attacked conservatives for ruining the economy and civil discourse, including claims like this:
