The entertainment world has readied the battlefield for the resistance with scripted and unscripted shows.
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, aired early Thursday morning, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell described how much “easier” it was to find material for his left-wing show under the Trump administration compared to the supposed challenge of finding anything newsworthy during Barack Obama’s presidency.
Awards season has begun which means a fresh opportunity for Hollywood and media elites to congratulate themselves. Oprah Winfrey warned the press is "under siege these days" despite their "insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth."
Seth Meyers did a big round of promotional interviews about his gig hosting the Golden Globes awards on Sunday nights and how he’ll address “the elephant in the room” of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. One easy sign of how soft every single interviewer is: No one asked Meyers about NBC’s Matt Lauer. Everywhere he went, Meyers claimed he'd strike a balance of sympathy for the victims and mockery of the perpetrators. But Meyers pal Amy Poehler told Dave Itzkoff at The New York Times that Meyers is a sensitive male who knows “what his privilege permits him and what it denies him.”
Seth Meyers, the liberal host of NBC’s Late Night program, was announced as the host of the 75th Golden Globe Awards program in a statement released on Thanksgiving Day by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. According to HFPA President Meher Tatna, the Association “is excited” about having Meyers in the role that has previously been filled by Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s Tonight Show, British comedian Ricky Gervais, actress/comedian Tina Fey and her fellow Saturday Night Live star Amy Poehler.
CNN is still proudly touting the media’s “resistance” against President Trump, despite it being over a year since he was elected into office.
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, which was aired early Thursday morning, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was treated to a champagne toast by the liberal comedian as the two of them celebrated Democratic Party election victories in state and local races across the country.
It was the year of the F-bomb -- every single one of them aimed at the president of the United States. It’s been 12 months since the 2016 election and already at least 63 of the angriest Hollywood elites -- A-listers, has-beens, teen stars, rappers, and wannabes alike -- have delivered a collective middle finger to the president.
Rosie O’Donnell’s best route to getting publicity is by bashing Trump. But late night talk shows can’t wait to hear her rant and rave.
The Washington Free Beacon watched so the rest of us didn’t have to. Ace reporter Conor Beck got the goods, and headlined them thusly: “Late-Night Comedy Shows Ignore Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Allegations
Hosts pounced on similar allegations against Bill O'Reilly, Roger Ailes.” Here at NewsBusters Scott Whitlock was on the case as well, headlining: “Not Speaking Truth to Power: ‘Brave’ Late Night Hosts Skip Weinstein Sex Scandal.”
Early Wednesday morning on NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers, former White House Press Secretary under President Obama, Josh Earnest, appeared to continue plugging for Obama, despite now working as an NBC News analyst. The far-left late night host surprisingly pressed Earnest on Obama’s dismal record with transparency, to which Earnest praised his former boss in the most outlandish way he could, saying President Obama was “the most transparent president ever.”
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, aired early Thursday morning, Daily Show host Trevor Noah proceeded to compare President Trump to a killer asteroid hurtling toward Earth, the AIDS epidemic in Africa, and fictional monster Godzilla.
