White House Correspondents Dinner
CBS’s Madam Secretary has been on a roll in its final season. After achieving the liberal dream of a Hillary Clinton-like female president, the season also lectured us on free speech and brave reporters. This week, we’re back to praising the “defenders of truth” in the media, straight from the president herself.
In a press release and subsequent article by the arrogant and biased Philip Rucker of The Washington Post, it was announced with much fanfare among the liberal media and elites that the self-righteous anonymous White House official behind that infamous New York Times op-ed will soon release a book about being a member of The Resistance. Despite the fact that there’s no way for anyone other than The Times or the book publisher to vet them (plus the claims they’re leveling), the book will undoubtedly be celebrated as a modern-day Gospel by the liberal media.
FNC host Greg Gutfeld made the right move on the rhetorical pool table during Wednesday’s The Five, knocking Brian Stelter as “CNN’s cue ball of concern” after his hissy fit about President Trump skipping Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which Gutfeld dubbed an “orgy” of “sweat lemmings complimenting their shared opinions.”
All aboard the crazy train! On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, liberal media janitor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter appeared alongside host Brooke Baldwin to complain about the Trump administration boycotting Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which is arguably the most pompous, self-worshipping annual celebration known to man (besides Hollywood awards shows). Because after all, there’s no profession that loves itself more than the national press!
Hysteria has been coursing through the left at the thought of Donald Trump’s conservative policies turning America into some right wing dystopia. So much so that liberals have turned to using the fictional land of Gilead from Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale as a warning for the kind patriarchal doom that could befall our society.
It should come as no surprise that liberal comedian Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, doesn’t watch Fox News. In fact, he dismissed the top-rated cable channel as not the “villain we’re chasing after.” According to an article posted on Monday by The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr, one of the biggest differences between Noah and previous host Jon Stewart is the fact that “Noah’s version rarely touches on the network” while Stewart “was heavy on criticisms” of FNC.
According to a new Media Research Center study, 90 percent of the President’s coverage in 2018 has been negative. However, that hasn’t stopped journalists about whining about the President limiting press freedom. What happened when Barack Obama actually did that? Nothing.
Michelle Wolf is not the first so-called comic to maliciously insult conservatives and Republicans at a White House Correspondents' Association dinner, but she was intentionally mean-spirited, and even after the blowback, she's unrepentant. Members of the liberal mainstream media have expressed disapproval over some of Wolf's comments, saying she went too far. But I'm not buying it. This is what passes as liberal humor these days. Just watch Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert and tell me their humor is less malevolent.
To be vulgar once earned societal disapproval, ostracism from polite company and -- in my grandmother's era — put a young person in danger of having his mouth washed out with soap. Today, vulgarities are now mainstream. People speaking in a way that "would make a sailor blush" are now on primetime television and words once frowned upon in polite society are now a part of what was once known as cordial conversation.
Conditions reached DEFCON-1 over at CNN on Thursday afternoon following a tense White House press briefing filled with questions about the administration’s credibility. These frenzied inquiries were sparked by Rudy Giuliani's stunning admission that the President reimbursed Michael Cohen for the Stormy Daniels hush payment.
Eager to keep up its defense of left-wing comedian Michelle Wolf’s offensive and widely-condemned performance at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, on Tuesday, NBC’s Today show devoted another full report to the comic and touted how “Wolf’s star supporters are stepping forward.”
Comedienne Michelle Wolf is a hero, according to media and Hollywood figures who are racing to defend her recent outrageous statements, regardless of how the rest of America reacts.
