S. E. Cupp
With Congressional Republicans and President Trump set to score a massive win before Christmas with their tax reform bill, Democrats and their liberal media lapdogs were letting loose with their smear and fear campaign. But During HLN’s Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp called out California Democrat Ted Lieu for trying to recklessly scare voters into thinking the bill was going to hurt them when, in fact, the opposite was true.
During Wednesday’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, Cupp and her panel were visibly disgusted as they started the show by talking about the sexual misconduct allegations against former NBC's Today co-host Matt Lauer. After Cupp reviewed the disturbing allegations detailed in the Variety exclusive, the panel vigorously ripped into NBC for claiming they didn’t know about Lauer’s victims until Monday. Collectively they determined that the network knew more than they were letting on and should be investigated for it.
With former Vice President Joe Biden making the rounds on his book tour, many in the media have been fawning over the idea of him running for president in 2020. But during HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the panel had a reality check for all those hoping and praying for Biden to be president. “And the other thing too is, going back to our previous story, in this environment where groping is obviously on the outs, do we really want Joe Biden as a nominee,” wondered Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far-left host Bill Maher -- well known for his anti-religion views -- tried to make an argument that communism is a "religion" when conservative guest Erick Erickson made an obvious point that communism was an ideology founded and run by atheists that led to war and to the mass murder of millions. Maher shot back: "That's a dumb canard. ... Communism was the religion, and the leader, Stalin, was the god." Several years ago, Maher similarly stretched to make an argument that Nazism and communism were state religions when conservative guest S.E. Cupp recalled that Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, and Josef Stalin were atheists.
The latest memoir of two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was officially released on Tuesday to much acclaim by the liberal media. But on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered the conservative host kicked off her show by ridiculing it as Clinton walking the reader through her five stages of grief. And to demonstrate the ridiculousness of the book, her and TV’s Andy Levy performed a dramatic reading for the rest of the panel.
Conservative journalist Ben Shapiro was set to speak at the radically liberal University of Berkeley on Thursday where police would be present to deal with any violence from rioters. And since Berkeley was rapidly becoming anathema to free speech, Shapiro appeared on S.E. Cupp Unfiltered on Monday where he and the host raked Berkeley over the coals for being so ridiculous.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far left comedian Bill Maher hyperbolically likened Syrian dictator Bashar Assad gassing people to death with chemical weapons to the United States "gassing them" "slower with CO2" as he fretted over global warming. He also mocked Republicans as "stupid" for not believing in global warming, and, as he interviewed author Hanna Rosin, he lambasted men as "whiny little bitches."
During CNN’s Tuesday night primary coverage of Nebraska and West Virginia Van Jones pondered why “there's a pouncing I don’t see with others,” when it comes to Hillary Clinton. “We can sometimes get used to this and forget, but we've never had a woman do this,” stated Jones using the classic ‘it’s because she’s a woman’ argument. And what example did Jones use to back up his claim? A conversation he once had with a cab driver.
On Tuesday, Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of CNN, started the process of cancelling several of the news network's series, including the reboot of Crossfire, and began laying off hundreds of employees. Chris Ariens at the TVNewser blog reported that "as many as 300, or 8%, of CNN's workforce is being cut." Ariens later noted that "Jane Velez Mitchell's nightly HLN show has been canceled, part of deep cuts at CNN."
Judith Miller on Saturday marvelously smacked down Time magazine and Ellis Henican over the contention that America is Islamophobic.
As the discussion on "Fox News Watch" turned to Time's cover story about the nation's view of Muslims, Henican said that he attended the protests in New York last week and "there were some views expressed that I think everyone at this table would find a little troubling."
This led Miller to ask, "But, is that America?"
She continued, "That's some people who turned out to protest."
Miller then asked a question that should be posed to every liberal media member accusing Americans of Islamophobica, "Where is there any indication that America as a country is beating up on Muslims or denying them their rights?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Newsday columnist and Fox News contributor Ellis Henican on Saturday compared the website known as Wikileaks to the popular news aggregator the Drudge Report.
Discussing the recent leaks by this atrocious outlet on "Fox News Watch," Henican made the case that "most of us who work in the media will tell you honestly we live off of leaks. Give me more leaks," he said.
Conservative political commentator S. E. Cupp took issue with this saying, "It seems as though the sole purpose of Wikileaks is to discredit and dismantle our war efforts and at any cost."
She continued, "And I'm sorry, that's not journalism. They're just a collection bin for, for you know, documents."
Henican responded, "Kind of like the Drudge Report, right?" (video follows with transcript, file photo):
