CNN, the network that likes to brag about being all about “facts first,” doesn’t always have a great track record when it comes to reality. Fourteen years ago this week, on September 19, 2005, the network’s founder appeared on his own network to credulously insist that despotic dictator Kim Jong-il “didn't look" evil. Ted Turner proclaimed, “...He didn’t look too much different than most other people.”
If you thought TBS’s strange comedy The Detour couldn’t possibly top their disturbing sexualization of a young girl last season, you might be unpleasantly surprised to find out they came pretty close in Tuesday’s episode, “The Game Show.” This time, the scene involves a teen boy simulating masturbation of an adult man dressed in a cow costume while also begging his mother to roll over 12 supine men and their penises. I know, I know. I did warn you that this comedy is strange.
We’re 5 episodes into TBS’s comedy The Detour, and still, nothing much has changed. The show is still relying on typical anti-Christian storylines, caricatures and stereotypes as fodder for its plotlines, and when it does branch out into something more unusual, it’s disgusting, incestuous stories that would make most pedophiles smile. Given that Samantha Bee is the creator, this comes as no surprise. The show proved a while ago that they’re not talented enough to come up with new material instead of constantly relying on cliché attacks on Christianity.
Let’s see. So far, TBS’s Miracle Workers has depicted our Biblical God as lazy and inept, requiring His assistant to wipe Him after using the bathroom and to help Him operate a microwave oven, denigrated Him with dick jokes, and referred to Him as “an illiterate madman,” who lies and swears. If you think there wouldn’t be much left to use to disparage our Creator with, you’d be wrong.
Who knew media executives were two-faced? NBC News reports that AT&T's bosses Randall Stephenson and John Stankey plan "the erasing of Ted Turner" after they finalize their takeover of Warner Media. The Turner brand is being retired. This comes a year after Stephenson and Stankey "flew to Atlanta to meet in person with Ted Turner to personally assure him that his legacy would be maintained in the wake of any reorganization of the company."
Since we last left off on TBS’s anti-religious comedy Miracle Workers, the show (which centers around our Biblical God) has continued to depict God as moronic, inept and an annoyance to everyone around Him, including the assistant He needs to help Him wipe Himself and operate a microwave oven, among other tasks.
TBS’s new comedy Miracle Workers sank even lower in its anti-religious bigotry in just its second episode Tuesday night, “13 Days.” The episode features clips of comedian Bill Maher mocking religion and God, as he so often does, which leads God (Steve Buscemi) to pretend it doesn’t hurt His feelings. But He still wants Maher killed. More specifically, He wants to “explode his penis.” You can’t tell at all that this was written by the typically immature, sex-obsessed, faith-bashing leftist Hollywood, can you? /sarcasm. But don't worry, the creator insists the episode carries "more meaning" than just "one big, elaborate dick joke."
If the approximately 5,892,643 other attempts by Hollywood to mock and criticize God, TBS’s new comedy Miracle Workers has just given us one more vehicle that does just that. Though there is no mention of Jesus yet, the Christian/Jewish God of The Bible is definitely the target, according to a Vanity Fair article titled, “How Miracle Workers Turns Heaven into a Corporate Hell.”
TBS’s comedy The Guestbook decided to take a jab at Christianity, specifically the existence of Jesus, in Tuesday’s episode, “Tonight You Become a Man.”
Over the weekend two former CNN big-wigs, founder Ted Turner and former long-time analyst Jeff Greenfield expressed disappointment in the direction the network has been heading. Turner thought they were spending too much time on politics, while Greenfield accurately noted that many of the people working there counted themselves as part of the anti-Trump “resistance”.
CNN founder Ted Turner doesn’t think much of conservatives, but he’s got a blind spot to the atrocities in North Korea. On September 19, 2005, Turner appeared on CNN’s Situation Room and talked about his visit to the despotic country. He seemed to excuse the regime, saying, “I saw a lot of people over there. They were thin and they were riding bicycles instead of cars, but... I didn’t see any brutality.”
TBS's Wrecked continued the longstanding tradition, lampooning rich, white men on Tuesday’s episode, “Six Feet,” as “monsters,” misogynists and sexual harassers who look down disdainfully on the poor and treat them horribly. Oh, and they make people hunt and kill each other for sport, too. Because, of course.
