To the liberal media, besides President Trump and conservatives in general, there is no greater enemy than Fox News. Thus, the ensuing Hollywood takedown of its deceased founder, Roger Ailes, was an obvious move. Actor Russell Crowe appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday night to promote his role as Ailes in the new series The Loudest Voice.
Steven Colbert continued his streak Wednesday night of becoming the paramount late night host for Democratic primary candidates to speak with on the campaign trail press tour. Kirsten Gillibrand as well as Kamala Harris were given the royal treatment during their appearances on The Late Show, so it only makes sense the courtesy would be extended to Beto O’Rourke during his appearance on the show Wednesday night.
Rest assured, another left-leaning late night host and a liberal celebrity have weighed in on which Democrat is best to beat Donald Trump. During an appearance on The Late Show With Steven Colbert Monday night, Samuel L. Jackson and Colbert engaged in speculation over who will lead the Democratic Party ticket in 2020.
In 2016, the pink hat seen around the world was used by feminists as a symbol of “resistance” to protest the inauguration of the duly elected President Trump. Now, the latest virtue-signaling garb of the feminist movement is a red robe and white hat derived from the popular show, The Handmaid’s Tale. It is difficult to miss the slew of pro-abortion activists donning the trendy ensemble outside of the Supreme Court and state legislatures around the country. Members of the media elite zealously jump at the opportunity to give airtime to the outfit, including late night host Stephen Colbert.
Even though Jon Stewart hasn’t been the host of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable channel for four years, the liberal comedian still takes advantage of every opportunity to slam President Trump, whom he blames for the world being “in a terrible situation.” That was the case when Stewart spoke at Monday evening’s Stand Up for Heroes benefit honoring wounded veterans in New York City, where he said he was “excited” about the midterm election because that could be “the beginning of the end” of Trump’s presidency.
From gags like President Donald Trump being beckoned to the situation room with promises of doughnut crumbs to Vladimir Putin's declaration that the Helsinki Summit was "a vibrant conversation of me telling him exactly what to say and do," Stephen Colbert's animated Showtime series Our Cartoon President, is a sophomoric, ham-handed attempt to make fun of Trump, his family and administration. But the episode "First Family" might take its biggest shot at former President Bill Clinton for his "criminally poor impulse control."
Remember when American comedians went after the powerful in an effort to bring them down to earth with the sharp satire of accountability? Today, they appear to only protect the powerful. Well, unless the powerful aren't liberal enough. As things stand now you have the likes of David Letterman and Louis C.K. savaging Sarah Palin's family, SNL terrified to rip Obama with any real zeal, cartoonists proclaiming President Teleprompter too cool to mock, and Will Ferrell films flaking for corrupt public unions, all in an effort to protect the corrupted leftist elitists currently holding power.
It's like we now live in an alternate universe you might call ... North Korea.
In desperate Hail Mary moves to protect Obama and Democrats from what's looking like a November rout, three of the left's most beloved Palace Guards have just upped their game considerably. Bill Maher's now openly blackmailing Delaware Republican Senate Candidate Christine O'Donnell, threatening a weekly drip-drip-drip of videos he thinks will ruin her candidacy unless she agrees to appear on his show - which is where he'll really pull out the stops to finally win that Emmy by attempting to destroy her:
Everyone knows Fox isn't "the most trusted name in news," so who is? You guessed it - and at least one media tycoon agrees. Speaking at the University of Missouri as a guest-lecture, Craig Newmark - Craigslist founder and informal Obama technology-advisor - argued that Comedy Central is the most trustworthy news source.
Invited to discuss the future of journalism - where individuals virtually have an endless amount of resources in today's era of new media - Newark stressed how trust and credibility was paramount, emphasizing the exemplary dedication Comedy Central shows have for investigative reporting and fact-checking.
"[R]ight now I think the most trusted news show in the U.S. is the one that does the best investigative reporting and the most trustworthy reporting - and that's ‘The Daily Show,'" Newark said - and he wasn't joking. "Sounds like a joke - isn't."
