By no means does actress Jodie Foster consider herself a political person and, when pressed, she’ll admit that Hollywood types should not be held by the public to have enlightened political opinions. Still, that doesn’t deter her from being very anti-gun. And with the subject of “sensible” gun laws in vogue, Foster is using her platform to promote firearm restrictions, because how on earth does a human being even require such a weapon?
On Monday morning, as CNN's New Day show highlighted video of an FBI agent accidentally shooting someone in a Denver nightclub while dancing flamboyantly, co-host Alisyn Camerota suggested that the video undermine's the NRA's argument that "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," as she discussed the news with co-host John Berman. By contrast, although Fox and Friends also covered the video on Sunday, the morning FNC program on Friday had also shown some of the other side of the gun issue as it highlighted the case of a teenager in Mississippi who used a rifle to fight off a home invasion by a man who was using a hatchet to break in.
As the host of MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews has said some very startling things along the way, but it’s hard to top his comment during Tuesday’s edition regarding the behavior of Republican men, who “are told” to “read the Wall Street Journal, play golf and talk about pro sports." "I mean," he added, "the men especially are all programmed a certain way. They don’t have too many outliers, Republicans. They all behave basically the same, right?”
Slamming White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during April's White House Correspondents’ Dinner was apparently not enough for liberal comedian Michelle Wolf, so she continued her barrage on Sunday night as part of the premiere of Netflix's The Break. Wolf, who was criticized for attacking the White House official’s “looks” at the dinner, was careful to state that she was not commenting on Sanders’ appearance but was instead criticizing her “ugly personality.
The school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas wasn’t carried out with the media’s favorite weapon to mischaracterize and demonize (the AR-15), but this was only a minor speed bump for those looking to take away Americans' rights. During Monday’s Hardball on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews brought on anti-gun activist Nicole Hockley to join him in whining about those who respected the Second Amendment. During the segment, Matthews absurdly claimed that since NRA had hired Oliver North to be their president, the organization was somehow “immune to justice.”
Una vez más, el presentador de noticias de Univisión Jorge Ramos comprueba que ningún argumento es impropio siempre y cuando fomente la agenda antiarmas de la cadena, ni siquiera una teoría de conspiración sin base fáctica.
Once again, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos proves that no argument is off limits so long as it advances the network’s gun control agenda, not even a conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher and his guests made a number of incendiary comments about conservatives, including Maher joking that HIV is "what you (Donald Trump) get for sleeping with" Fox News host Sean Hannity.
CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta found himself largely on the sidelines during his network’s Friday afternoon coverage of the horrifying high school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. But when he was given a chance to swoop in, he lamented the lack of support from President Trump for “any kind of substantial gun-control measures.” Of course, Acosta failed to provide any evidence for how passing gun confiscation or control measures would put an end to school shootings like those in Texas and Parkland, FL.
Alyssa Milano keeps forgetting her own script. The actress turned NRA opponent is one of the highest profile celebrities taking on the civil rights group. Milano, 45, isn’t in the public eye nearly as much as she was during her days co-starring with Tony Danza on Who’s the Boss? or the long-running Charmed.
The news that the National Rifle Association has chosen Oliver North as the organization’s next president left NBC “baffled” on Tuesday. Both the Today show and CBS This Morning focused heavily on the “controversial” figure’s connections to the Iran-Contra scandal from 30 years ago.
On Sunday's CNN Newsroom, early morning anchor Natalie Allen repeatedly freaked out over President Donald Trump citing the failures of gun control in Europe in his address to the NRA as the CNN host hyped anger expressed from French and British political figures. She employed words like "preposterous" and "bizarre" to deride the President's speech.
