Having Sean Spicer appear on the Emmys may be offensive, but the journalists at CBS This Morning loved the “great” award show for mocking “recurring punch line” Donald Trump. Trying to spin the event as somehow just general political comedy, Gayle King hailed, “Television’s biggest night was infused with politics and references to the President.”
After the liberal media spent months laughing over Melissa McCarthy’s depiction of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, on Monday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle was outraged that Spicer himself would participate in a similar skit during Sunday night’s Emmy Awards.
The morning after Sunday night’s Emmy Awards show, the media seemed to have a collective mental breakdown over former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s surprise appearance during the show. Despite the fact that Spicer poked fun at himself for his comments about the crowd size at President Trump’s inauguration, those in Hollywood and the media weren’t happy with their liberal bubble being invaded by a Republican.
The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert aired Sunday, September 17th on CBS. Colbert’s displeasure with President Trump’s November victory was immediately apparent as his full seventeen-minute show opening was chock-full of slings and arrows flung at him and the anti-Trump hate-fest continued all night with several actors even addressing the president directly.
This Fall TV season is starting to arrive and the Emmys are just around the corner. Likely both will provide the media with new opportunities to preach to ordinary Americans about how diverse Hollywood is. But what those claims won’t tell you is that Hollywood is one of the most racist, sexist places to work.
The world of television and how Hollywood delivers it keeps changing. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon have become prestige brands whose original programming draws a pile of Emmy nominations. But as much as technology changes, some things remain the same. The entertainment factories keep ripping on Republican politicians in the crudest terms.
Hollywood has never beat around the bush when it comes to proclaiming its politics -- and that includes the shows and stars the industry honors with nominations and awards. Yesterday, July 13, the complete list for the Emmy nominations was released. Most of nominees were shows or actors that supported Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton (or Bernie Sanders, in the case of Susan Sarandon), and supported the LGBTQ in their political correctness. In fact, some of the shows nominated have been so outspoken and even scandalous in their content that it seems as if the media will willingly praise only political, liberal programs as quality television.
On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer proudly announced that the network had received an Emmy award for its biased coverage of the Supreme Court’s 2013 ruling legalizing gay marriage across the country. Lauer told viewers: “By the way, the News and Documentary Emmy awards were held last night and NBC News and MSNBC picked up this one for our live coverage of the Supreme Court's landmark decision on same-sex marriage.”
The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel dutifully proclaimed that this year’s award show was “the most diverse ever.” But, much like last year’s show, diversity means liberal Hollywood's brand of in-your-face transgender agendas, feminist themes, Hillary support, and Trump bashing.
"When the Daytime Emmy nominees were unveiled Wednesday, some of the more interesting noms went unreported," the Washington Post's Lisa de Moraes noted in a blog post yesterday afternoon. Interesting is quite the euphemism in the case of nominee Kevin Clash.
Clash, you may recall, is the Sesame Street puppeteer who resigned last November after allegations of a sexual relationship with a teenager, has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy award. So what exactly was the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) thinking? It's not like the nomination occurred before the lawsuit against Clash was made public.
