Chris Matthews Repents: ‘I'm Trying to Make Up For the Fact I Think I Was Too Tough on Clinton'

3 hours 13 min ago
<p>While a number of liberal journalists and politicians have had the sudden revelation that they supported a “sexual predator” in the White House twenty plus years ago, some liberals are having the exact opposite reaction to the anti-sexual harassment wave that has swept the culture.</p> <div> </div>

Press Mostly Indulges UCLA Player's Dad Who Denies Trump Helped Free His Son

5 hours 44 min ago
<p>The 2017 competition for Ingrate of the Year is now closed; the disgraceful distinction belongs to LaVar Ball. Rather than thank President Donald Trump for his part in keeping his son and two other UCLA basketball players from rotting in a Chinese prison for several years, Ball, when asked by ESPN about Trump's role, shot back "Who?" — and <em>complained</em> that "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Well sir, that's because he did.</p>

Netflix's 'The Punisher' A Bloody, Brutal Depiction of Veterans

7 hours 5 min ago
<p>Marvel's The Punisher originally appeared as a supporting character from Netflix’s <em>Daredevil </em>where he stood out as a character with a particularly violent way of dealing with criminals. His solo season in Netflix’s <em>The Punisher</em>, which premiered on November 17 after being delayed following the Vegas shooting<em>, </em>is no different as it glorifies in blood, beatings, and even a couple of beheadings. To add insult to very violent injury, the series also manages to squeeze in a less than admirable depiction of veterans as nothing more than killer time bombs.</p>

Fox’s ‘The Last Man on Earth:’ Genders 'Don't Exist,' But Sexism Still Does

11 hours 13 min ago
<p>Fox’s <em>The Last Man on Earth </em>spent most of its Sunday, November 19 episode touting feminism and a lesbian relationship, then strangely made the argument towards the end of the show that genders no longer exist, and therefore, neither does “gay.”</p>

CBS’s ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ Decries Sexism While Lead Actor Jeremy Piven Accused of Sexual Assault

11 hours 53 min ago
<p>CBS’s <em>Wisdom of the Crowd </em><a href="https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/dawn-slusher/2017/10/23/conservatives-cry-foul-over-cbss-wisdom-crowd-political-storyline">is at</a> it again, this time trying to teach us about feminism and sexism while its main star faces down accusations of sexual assault. The show centers around a crowd-sourced crime-fighting platform called “Sophe,” created by Silicon Valley tech innovator Jeffrey Tanner (Jeremy Piven) in an attempt to find out who murdered his daughter. In the process, he ends up helping to solve other crimes with the public’s help, via their input on Sophe.</p>

Global Warming 'Weaponizing Smallpox' on CBS's 'Madam Secretary'

12 hours 37 min ago
<p>We’ve heard all the usual warnings about the dangers of global warming, like rising sea levels and uncontrollable weather patterns. However, the reemergence of smallpox was a new one for me. CBS’s <em>Madam Secretary </em>dives into that latent threat in the latest episode.</p>

New Yorker Blames Rand Paul Attack on Smelly Compost and the 'Sinister Banality' of Trump

13 hours 10 min ago
<p>At <em>The New Yorker</em> on Tuesday, Jeffrey Frank reached what one hopes is the worst we'll see of Trump Derangement Syndrome — but don't get your hopes up. Frank, in attempting to analyze what might have caused registered Democrat Rene Boucher to attack Senator Rand Paul two weeks ago, blamed "the sinister banality of American life ... with a lot of it these days emanating from Donald J. Trump." </p>

Showtime's 'SMILF' Says American Dream 'Does Not Exist,' While Demonstrating It On and Off-Screen

13 hours 39 min ago
<p>With Thanksgiving only days away, I want to share one thing for which I'm thankful: from the premiere of <em>SMILF</em> on November 5 to its second episode on November 12, viewership <a href="https://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/smilf-season-one-ratings/">fell by a third</a>. Having just endured the third episode, November 19th's "Half a Sheet Cake and a Blue-Raspberry Slushie," here's hoping the American people continue to be driven away from this show as quickly in the weeks to come. The episode started with a George Carlin quote on the screen to set the tone. "That's why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it." Considering this show is about a woman following her dreams, and is written and produced by and stars a woman who is, presumably, living her own dream, the irony of this is fairly rich. </p>

Fox's 'Family Guy' Says Putin Is 'Our President's Best Friend'

15 hours 25 min ago
<p>Fox’s <em>Family Guy </em>can be pretty even-handed when it comes to its political humor at times, but when it swings left, it swings moronically to the left. The latest episode proves that with a visit from Russian president Vladimir Putin where the show obediently parrots the rigged election narrative.</p>

Twitter to Begin Using ‘Blue Check’ Status As a ‘Big Brother’ Weapon?

17 hours 59 min ago
<p>The growth in online censorship by tech titans Facebook, Twitter, and Google's search and YouTube platform is one of the most under-reported stories of the past two years. In the latest disturbing development, Twitter, which has been increasingly heavy-handed in censoring center-right content, content providers, and everyday users since last year's general election campaign, has announced that it will unilaterally remove "blue-check" (i.e., "verified") status from groups and users who in its view have violated its Terms of Service — even for <em>offline behavior</em> it considers unacceptable.</p>

CNN’s Stelter Fawns Over Trump Impersonator Breaking Down Gestures

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 22:53
<p>To promote his Monday night special glorifying late-night comedians bashing Trump, CNN’s Brian Stelter closed out his Sunday show by showing off his giddy interview with Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik. Stelter was like a kid in a candy store as he laughed along with his guest as they joked about Trump’s speech patterns and mocked him for being out of shape. All during a show that’s supposed to be “about how the media really works and how the news gets made.”</p>

WashPost: Moore and Trump Ruin Christians, But 'Women Are Better Off with Franken'

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 22:46
<p>The<em> Washington Post </em>Outlook opinion section on Sunday really demonstrates that this newspaper is deeply invested in Democratic Party spin. Editor Adam Kushner published pieces on how "Roy Moore's whole career has been a con job," and Trump is "warping American Christianity," but also "Women are better off with Franken in office." </p>

The Atlantic Reports SJW Students Triggered By Steve Martin's 1978 'King Tut' Song

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 22:05
<p>There are some situations in the news just begging to be mocked. One such example was the report that snowflake social justice warrior students at Reed College in Oregon objected to one of my favorite <em>Saturday Night Live</em> skits ever performed: Steve Martin singing "King Tut" in 1978.</p>

On MSNBC, WashPost's Jen Rubin Hits Dems from Left for 'Harping on' Clinton Sex Scandals

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 20:41
<p>On Sunday's <em>AM Joy</em> on MSNBC, it was another case of liberals speaking of former Bill Clinton's sex scandals as if consensual adulterous sex with Monica Lewinsky were the worst thing he was accused of as the panel discussed recent scandals from Roy Moore and Al Franken to Donald Trump. And for her part, pretend conservative Jennifer Rubin actually hit Democrats from the left as she complained that "Democrats keep harping on Bill Clinton," presumably referring to a recent willingness of some liberals to throw Bill Clinton under the bus to give an appearance of consistency in going after current politicians like Republicans Roy Moore and Donald Trump.</p>

NY Times Chides D.C. Bible Museum, Suggests Critics of Islam as Bad as ISIS

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 20:11
<p>The <em>New York Times</em> jabbed at Christians and conservatives in two articles Saturday related to museum exhibitions. Emily Cochrane nitpicked the new Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., while an art critic looking at a Paris exhibit on the history of Christians in the Middle East suggested the French populist Marine Le Pen was as bad as the jihadists of ISIS.</p>

Not News: Hillary Claims Broaddrick, Jones Are 'Misremembering History'

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 19:17
<p>In a Friday radio interview, Hillary Clinton failed to answer a question about her hostile, orchestrated actions against women who credibly accused her husband of sexual harassment and assault during the 1990s. In the process, she accused the alleged victims of "misremembering or misinterpreting history." On Laura Ingraham's Friday evening Fox News show, Paula Jones took strong exception to Mrs. Clinton's nonsense. Naturally, the establishment press hasn't covered what Mrs. Clinton said.</p>

Dowd: GOP ‘Empowered’ Clinton’s Predatory Behavior With ‘Tainted’ Justice Thomas

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 18:32
<p>ABC’s make-believe Republican Matthew Dowd went completely off the rails Sunday during his appearance on <em>This Week</em>. During the panel discussion of the latest sexual harassment allegations around the country, Dowd went off the deep end and claimed Republicans “empowered” Bill Clinton’s sexually predatory behavior and “gave up their values” by putting “tainted” Justice Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court.</p>
