<p>MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is doing a Trump-trashing Christmas album -- or EP, meaning "not enough songs for a real album."

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 12:30
<p>Hulu’s <em>I Love You America</em> with Sarah Silverman has been just one insult after another for conservative viewers.

'How to Get Away with Murder' Manages Rare Social Justice Hat Trick by Shooting Gay 'DACA Kid'

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 05:14
<p>If there was a competition for how patronizingly a show could shoehorn the term "DACA kid" into one hour-long episode, I would have to think the November 16 episode of <em>How to Get Away With Murder</em>, titled "Live. Live. Live.," would take the gold medal by doing it twice in four minutes. That's not all, though. This episode actually managed to hit the rare social justice hat trick, by having one character hit three different hot-button issues: illegal immigration, homosexuality, and guns.</p>

<p>In a piece on CNN.com, titled, "Air Force Academy hoax doesn't change overall picture on hate crimes," CNN contributor Frida Ghitis (identified as a "former CNN producer and correspondent") used the revelation that an infamous incident of racist harassment against Air Force Academy cadets was actually a hoax as a springboard to attack "bigots" and "racists" on the "far right" who were too glad that the troubling incident turned out not to be a bonafide example of a racially motivated hate crime.</p>

Victim Shaming? MSNBC's Hunt: Franken’s Action ‘Not Actually Groping’

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 18:36
<p>What happened to believing women when they speak out against powerful male accusers? On Thursday, evidence broke of a  2006 incident in which Democrat Al Franken groped and forcibly kissed TV and radio personality Leeaan Tweeden. Photographic proof backs up her claim. Yet MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt described the now-Senator's predatory behavior this way: “Then he took a picture, which his office now says was of a joke that showed him potentially — not actually groping — but mock groping her while she was asleep.” </p>
