You know the Emmys. You know the Oscars. You always hear about -- but honestly, never pay attention to -- the Golden Globes. But have you heard about the new lefty-run awards show, “The Golden Probes?” If your initial thought was, “Hmm, that sounds kind of dirty,” you’re right. Innuendos aside, the premise of the event is pretty foul.
In a move that shows the desperation of the writers of Stephen Colbert’s Showtime animated series, the episode of Our Cartoon President that aired on July 29 shows Vice President Mike Pence confessing to an affair to take the heat off Trump. Pence confesses in a press conference after a trip to Mar-a-Lago with the president and his cabinet.
In stark contrast the laughably absurd claim by the Morning Joe panelists last March that they barely covered the Stormy Daniels story, Salon.com published an article by Adam Johnson on July 25 revealing that there had been 455 segments about that porn star on MSNBC during the past year. The mocking criticism of the Stormy Daniels overdose of coverage on MSNBC comes from a left perspective since they contrast that sharply with lack of reporting on the war in Yemen which they view as "Trump's war" despite former President Obama also backing Saudi Arabia in that conflict.
In the first hour of his eponymous talk show Monday night, conservative author and host Mark Levin tore into the “totalitarian” liberal media for, among other things, being “historically illiterate” or “ideologically driven” in calling President Trump a Nazi, “mainstream[ing]” Stormy Daniels and “crackpot” Michael Avenatti, and painting themselves as chief defenders of the First Amendment.
Tensions were high on Thursday’s Deadline: White House as host Nicolle Wallace and her outraged panel fumed over Rudy Giuliani’s recent remarks about porn star Stormy Daniels. As the MSNBC host's frustration boiled over, she speculated whether the women in the Trump family were, “numb,” “dead inside,” or “paid off.”
Eager to defend the virtue of porn star Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani questioning her character and credibility, on her Thursday 9:00 a.m. ET hour show, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly actually compared First Lady Melania Trump to the adult film actress. The host claimed that the president’s wife “sold her body for sexual exploitation” when she once posed nude for GQ magazine 18 years ago.
Thursday morning on MSNBC, it was just another day at the liberal network, as host Stephanie Ruhle and her anti-Trump guests spent an entire segment repeatedly calling the President a “pig” and gossipping about his alleged preference for pornography.
Figures for the May ratings period show that CNN's primetime audience shrank by 25 percent from May 2017. So it seems that obsessing over Stormy Daniels, having over 147 interviews with her lawyer, constantly going after President Donald Trump as an idiot and a racist, highlighting Jim Acosta's loutish behavior, giving an open mic to gun-controllers, and siding with Hamas terrorists attacking Israeli soldiers — only a few items from a much longer list — is not a winning formula. Imagine that.
On Sunday’s installment of Showtime’s The Circus, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was profiled and he lashed out at President Trump as a “racist” and insinuated that Trump’s criticism of him was racially-based. Thankfully, the show also profiled our friends at the Daily Caller and, to the show’s credit, the interviews allowed for Daily Caller personality to offer some excellent points about liberal media bias.
First, frequent cable and broadcast news guest/Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti threatened on Monday to sue the Daily Caller for defamation. Now, on Wedenesday, a Hollywood Reporter column revealed how Avenatti called the writer an “asshole” for e-mailing him a list of tough questions and demanded their editor reach out to him.
In the past ten weeks, lawyer Michael Avenatti, who is representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against President Trump, has been interviewed a staggering 147 times on broadcast and cable news shows. More than half of those interviews (74) were on CNN, which almost certainly makes Avenatti the most ubiquitous guest in the network’s history. No guest — not Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders in 2016, nor Adam Schiff in 2017 — received anything close to the outpouring of free media coverage that CNN has bequeathed to Avenatti.
Recently, a couple media outlets have published stories pondering a mysterious thought: Are people getting tired of our 9-to-5 Trump bashing, and would they rather us tell jokes that aren’t just cheap shots at conservatives? Vice writer Harry Cheadle wondered the same thing when he published an article titled, “‘SNL’ Cold Opens Are Unfunny, Elitist Pieces of Liberal Propaganda.”
