Echoing the slanted coverage of ABC and CBS, on Friday, NBC’s Today show closed out its two-week coverage of the winter Olympics by gushing over openly gay Olympians Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy using their fame to “stand up as advocates” and “voicing their disapproval when Vice President Mike pence was picked to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation.”
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Addressing a boisterous and energized crowd on Thursday morning at CPAC, Vice President Mike Pence revisited the Trump administration’s successes in 2018 and addressed head-on the liberal media’s love affair during the Winter Olympics with the murderous North Korea’s Kim Yo-jong, a member of the regime’s “evil family clique.”

Just imagine a world where seemingly everything bad is President Trump’s fault. For Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer, that seems to be the world he inhabits. In his column for Friday’s print edition, Brewer blamed “our most profane, word-abusing leader” and President for three screw-ups by NBC guest host Katie Couric, former Asia expert Joshua Cooper Ramo, and Alpine skiing commentator Bodie Miller.
Tired of the 2018 Winter Olympics with it’s exhausting mixture of big, scary geopolitical nuclear politics and small, silly identity politics? Sick of “side eyes” and racist coin flips and Nork cheer-slaves? Why not relax and get back to a simpler Games by revisiting the 1993 comedy Cool Runnings? It so happens that in Pyeongchang, Jamaica is fielding (icing?) its first bobsled team in years, and ...
NBC Winter Olympics coverage may be tanking in the ratings, and taking fire for sloppy broadcasting, but the Peacock is reluctant to let go of the Gayest Games Ever™. The network just announced it has hired Adam Rippon to as a correspondent for the remainder of the Olympics. He will “work for the network on a variety of platforms, including television, digital and social media.”
On Thursday, CBS This Morning joined ABC’s Good Morning America in applauding openly gay Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy as a “champion for LGBTQ rights” who was using his position on Team USA to blast the Trump administration for failing to “support the LGBT community.”
Martin Rogers is probably a nice man, and he seems sincere when he writes in USA Today, “Tolerance and understanding of the LGBT community still has some way to travel, but isn’t there enough of it for there to at least be a conversation about new Olympic events allowing two men and two women to skate in tandem?”
Eat your hearts out all you bigots and start celebrating homosexual Olympians, writes The Washington Post columnist Jerry Brewer in a 1,300-word "PSA" for LGBT activists. Homosexual U.S. Olympic athletes Gus Kenworthy (right) and Adam Rippon (at left in photograph) are now free men and it's wonderful, not controversial, Brewer writes. If you disagree with him, you have a serious problem.
It’s often said at sites like this one, but sometimes, you can’t make this stuff up. On the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd assessed whether the North Korean delegation at the Winter Olympic games “manipulate[d] world public opinion” without mention of their own network’s role in the “charm offensive.”
New York Times Opinion editor and frequent guest on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Bari Weiss drew the ire of both the left and right Monday after she tried to score a political point using false information. Weiss tweeted out praise for U.S. skater, Mirai Nagasu, who became the first female U.S. Olympian to land a triple axel. Weiss congratulated Nagasu by touting, “immigrants get the job done.”
After a disturbing amount of media outlets spent much of the weekend swooning for North Korea’s master of propaganda Kim Yo-jong, The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha appeared on Fox News Channel’s Happening Now and slammed them for helping to put a positive spin on the murderous regime.
