  • Samantha Bee launches a scathing, yet impressively stupid, attack on Prager U

    Samantha Bee got her start on the Jon Stewart show. She is a worthy heir, for she’s mastered his techniques of pretending that snarky, fact-free comments about conservatives constitute news or astute political analysis. On Wednesday, Bee spent almost seven minutes hurling insults at Dennis Prager, at Prager U, and at the people who have appeared in Prager U videos. It’s clear that the people behind the show are panicking about how effectively the Prager U videos counter the leftist narrative that’s mainlined into the American brain through academia, “news,” and entertainment media. In fact, progressives are right to panic....

    “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee squeamishly admitted that President Trump was “technically telling the truth” when he repeatedly told reporters there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. “It’s so weird to realize that all the times he said that, he was technically telling the truth," Bee said on Wednesday's edition of her TBS show. "Maybe Ted Cruz’s dad did kill JFK. “You know, it’s not bad news that we just found out that the U.S. president didn’t illegally collude with Putin," she continued. "That’s… great! Our dystopia might be just a tiny bit less...

  • Samantha Bee struggling to regain advertisers (13 sponsors dropped her)

    A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May. The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media. "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6...

    Samantha Bee, and the geniuses at TBS, had a week to script an astute statement for her—getting the issue of her signature vulgarity off her back—and they blew it. Bee said last night that she has dropped the “c-word” many times before, stating that her goal is to “reclaim” it. Why? Why would she want to normalize a word that if used to describe her own mother she would recoil? Bee admits that a lot of women “don’t want that word reclaimed.” Sadly, she can’t figure out why. What’s the point of reclaiming a word that invites men to think...

    Samantha Bee returned to Full Frontal on Wednesday and issued an angry apology for her controversial remarks regarding White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump, saying, “it is a word I have used on the show many times hoping to reclaim it.” “You know, a lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the President’s daughter and advisor last week. It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it, this time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line. I regret it and I do apologize...
  • TBS to increase oversight of Samantha Bee’s show after use of slur about Ivanka Trump

    TBS is expected to increase network oversight on Samantha Bee’s show after the comedian drew scrutiny last week for making a vulgar comment about Ivanka Trump. A source told The Hollywood Reporter that network management will work with Bee and the crew on her show “Full Frontal” to prevent future incidents that could alienate advertisers or spark backlash. The comedian sparked a firestorm last week when she called Trump a "feckless c---" during a segment on her show about the Trump administration enforcing a policy that separates migrant children from their families. Bee reportedly had full creative license on the...

    Since Samantha Bee's obscene woman-hating comments directed at Ivanka Trump, she and TBS senior staff members have been plotting on what to do next. The answer will come June 6 on Bee’s “Full Frontal” show: she will offer a more detailed account of this issue. They have their work cut out for themselves. If what happened on May 30 was an anomaly, Bee could ride it out, saying she was apologizing for this one-time screw up. But this was not one ugly chapter in an otherwise sterling series of shows. While it was more over the top than any of...

    A TBS spokesman confirmed that Bee will address the subject when her show returns on Wednesday. The spokesman had no further details to share. But other sources with knowledge of the matter said Bee and her producers are working on an in-depth response that will lead Wednesday's episode.TBS and CNN are both owned by Turner, a subsidiary of Time Warner. Bee and the producers started brainstorming about what to say on Thursday, the same day she publicly apologized. Bee had gone after Trump for failing to take action to stop the separation of undocumented families. Bee added that the president...

    Samantha Bee’s apology for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c–t” was too little, too late for sponsor Autotrader. The “Full Frontal” host can’t really afford to lose any more advertisers, because based on the below TV ratings, TBS has already absorbed a blow in ad revenue generated by her weekly time slot. Year-to-date, Bee’s Nielsen ratings are down 34 percent among adults ages 18-49, which is the demographic most-coveted by primetime advertisers. Isolating just millennials, a label assigned to adults ages 18-34, she’s shed a whopping 47 percent — or nearly half — of her 2017 viewership. In terms of...

    It’s no shocker to say the left, as a whole, needs a good mouth-washing with soap. As comedian Samantha Bee and her jaw-dropping, C-word-slinging verbal attack on Ivanka Trump shows, there seem two standards at play with public speech, one guiding conservatives, one guiding liberals. And the one basic rule to remember, it seems, is that for liberals, there are no hard-and-fast codes of etiquette, of fair play and common courtesy to abide. So long as they’re responding to some sort of conservative thought or remark or individual, it’s free-for-all-Friday. Anything goes, the more shocking the better. But it’s not...

    Let’s call it progressive peer-group privilege. The older I get, the more firmly I’m convinced of a fundamental psychological fact. We never really leave high school. Of all the forms of pressure that one can apply to a person — political pressure, market pressure, moral pressure — the one that matters most of all is the one that mattered in the lunch room when you were wearing your class ring and letter jacket. It’s peer pressure, the unbreakable bond of the high-school clique. No reasonable person thinks Samantha Bee would still have a job at TBS if she used the...

    I have to say something to Samantha Bee: thank you. Thank you for giving the Trump campaign a rather large in-kind contribution. I would say CNN and other news networks because they gave $2 billion in free media to Trump in 2015-2016, but they probably know better: they helped get the man elected whether they like it or not with their non-stop exposure, confident his antics would usher his defeat. That didn’t happen. Now, we’ve kicked it up a notch with Samantha Bee’s vulgar and disgusting attack on Ivanka Trump, who is more than just a member of the First...

    NBC’S Chuck Todd says President Trump is culpable for the “tone” attached to a recent attack on the first daughter by comedian Samantha Bee. The “Meet the Press” host told colleagues Thursday night that Ivanka Trump can partially thank her father for a personal attack in which she was called a “feckless c—t.” The analysis came during a broadcast of MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” after Ms. Bee of the TBS’ “Full Frontal” apologized for her actions. “There’s no defending Samantha Bee and yet it’s hard to ever empathize with President Trump when they’re asking, you know, for empathy since...

    Hours after the White House pummeled comedienne Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c***' on national television Wednesday night, the ''Full Frontal' host complained at an awards dinner that she shouldn't have been criticized at all. 'We spent the day wrestling with the repercussions of one bad word,' Bee groused as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gave her an award at the NeueHouse Hollywood for 'programming that advanced social change.' Reporters were banned from covering the event in person, but DailyMail.com obtained a transcript of her brief remarks. She said that instead of venting their outrage...

In the absence of an agenda, all they have is hate … this hate for Trump, this semi-hate for America, this literal hate for you for voting for Trump. … You’re not gonna grow anything with this.” Regarding Bee, herself, Limbaugh said: “She’s just making an abject fool of herself. I don’t care how much her audience applauds.” Bee apologized on Twitter Thursday afternoon, saying: I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on...

    **SNIP** In the opening monologue on the latest episode of her weekly cable program, “Full Frontal,” Bee went on a coarse tirade that called the domestic abuse allegations against Schneiderman “especially infuriating, given his supposed woke bae-ness.” “Now, Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about, but — just kidding, it’s not complicated. F–k you, Eric Schneiderman!” she said, to cheers and applause from the audience. “No, no, let me say it louder,” Bee interrupted, before repeating the insult with audio reverb added.

    Samantha Bee’s show, Full Frontal, is apologizing today for portraying disgraced former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as a superhero in a segment last November. The show left two videos featuring Schneiderman on its YouTube account but changed the titles and the descriptions to reflect current events. One of the videos is now titled, “Former AG Tricks Sam Into Thinking He Was Decent.” The description below it now contains this apology: **SNIP** In the video itself, Bee repeatedly portrays Schneiderman as a superhero standing up to Trump. “There is hope on the horizon, a hero who stood up to democracy’s nemesis...
