    The Hill ^ | June 25, 2017 | Olivia Beavers and Reuters
    Conservative activists led rallies in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, protesting the recent list of celebrities who have made violent jokes about President Trump, Reuters reported. According to the newswire, a pair of rallies took place. At one event, the protestors faced off with almost as many counter-protesters on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Richard Spencer, a self-described white nationalist and founder of the so-called "alt-right" movement, drew a larger crowd of about 100 supporters to the rally at the Lincoln Memorial, which memorializes a president who is associated with ending slavery in the country. Spencer reportedly told journalists before...

    In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I'm not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last...
  • Joy Behar: Using Trump as ‘Basis for Your Campaign’ Doesn’t Seem to Be Working for Democrats

    A lot of the talk surrounding Jon Ossoff‘s loss last night has been about whether Democrats have a strong enough message that resonates beyond opposition to President Trump. The hosts of The View discussed this very issue this morning. Joy Behar in particular said that maybe Democrats don’t have that strong message: “The fact remains that since Donald Trump won the election… the Democrats have lost three elections. So if you’re using Donald Trump as your basis for your campaign, I don’t know if it’s working. I don’t think people are going towards the Democrats… and it’s a problem.” The...
  • Seth Meyers Skewers Democratic Spin on Ossoff Race

    The Daily Beast ^ | June 20, 2017 | Matt Wilstein
    There was a rare bit of criticism for the Democratic Party’s messaging strategy on Tuesday’s ‘Late Night.’ All eyes are on Georgia’s sixth district Tuesday night, where Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff has a long shot chance to steal the traditionally right-leaning seat from Republican Karen Handel in a special election to replace President Trump’s Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. Because the district has been held by Republicans since 1979, even a modest win for Handel could be seen as a victory for Democrats. With that in mind, Late Night host Seth Meyers invited “Democratic strategist” Ben Holland—actually one...

    The Blaze ^ | Jun 18, 2017 12:36 pm | Chris Enloe
    When Fox News announced in April they had fired network star Bill O’Reilly, many of the conservative commentator’s most loyal followers urged other conservative television networks to sign him, such as One America News, Newsmax or even TheBlaze. But as TheBlaze reported on Friday, O’Reilly plans to hire several journalists and news producers to begin his own in-house video operation at BillOReilly.com. He even poached a producer from Fox News to work for him. Now more details have been released about O’Reilly’s future. According to Newser, O’Reilly said during at a public appearance on Long Island Saturday evening that he...

    After MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance confronted Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on Friday's Real Time show, demanding that he retract an article from last April which accurately highlighted Nance "nominating" a Donald Trump property for a terrorist attack, actor Mark Hamill was so impressed with the liberal MSNBC analyst that the Star Wars icon praised him on Twitter and dubbed him a "Jedi master." After MSNBC's Joy Reid highlighted Hamill's tweet on her AM Joy show on Sunday, Hamill also threw some Twitter praise toward the far-left MSNBC host. At 11:46 a.m. ET on Sunday's AM Joy, host Reid excitedly...
  • Scalise attack was 'to some degree self-inflicted' claims CBS's Scott Pelley

    Fox News Opinion ^ | June 19, 2017 | Tom Blumer
    Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted." It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right. Transcript below: It's time to ask whether the attack on the United...

    Right Wing Conservative News Blog ^ | June 19, 2017 | Jeffrey A. Friedberg
    I happened to stumble across this movie last night, and watched it. Rotten Tomatoes gives it an 84%. I hated it but what do I know? This is a really dumb, bad, plotless movie, stuffed to the warp nacelles with gratuitous CGi gone wild (LOOK WHAT WE CAN DO!) I mean, it was a commercial for CGi. It is replete with terrible, embarrassing “aliens” makeup, bad acting, terrible cinematography, awful lines, and just plain stupid jumping around.

    Out Kick The Coverage ^ | June 16, 2017 | Clay Travis
    This morning ESPN announced that Connor Schell, newly promoted, would be the new second most powerful man in the company behind head boss John Skipper. Within a few minutes of that announcement conservative ESPN employees were sending me messages asking me to check out Connor Schell’s Tweets from back during the election. And I know this is going to completely shock you guys, but it turns out that Connor Schell is a huge left winger who expressed public disgust on his Twitter account over the election of Donald Trump and endorsed the idea that Trump oppresses minorities, women, and gays....

    Hot Air ^ | June 15, 2017 | Allahpundit
    Via Legal Insurrection, I’m bothered less by the underlying point about Trump’s crankish tendencies and winking at political violence than by the naked opportunism in trying to score that particular political point today. It’s little different from hyperventilating about the Palin “crosshairs” map after the Giffords shooting. Thinking that it’s crass and incendiary to use a crosshairs to signal that a politician should be “targeted” for defeat on Election Day is defensible. Focusing on that in the aftermath of a shooting with no evidence that it had anything to do with the incident isn’t. It’s an attempt to shift blame...

    On a day when a Republican congressman is fighting for his life, shot by a deranged leftist, the only way these cretins could process the villain/victim narrative switcheroo was to claim that the right started it. This is a smear, debunked years ago, and known as such even to devout liberals like Chris Hayes and Jonathan Chait. If I were Sarah Palin (or, more accurately, the head of her Super PAC), I would sue for defamation. IÂ’m not kidding.

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski implied on Thursday morning that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric was somehow ultimately responsible for the attempted assassination of Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. While halfheartedly acknowledging a myriad of other possible factors that may have contributed to the toxic political climate (save increasingly extreme mainstream liberal rhetoric), Brzezinski made it clear that she believes — and therefore wishes her audience to believe — that Trump’s arrival on the political scene was the spark that set America ablaze. "I think that very carefully we have to talk about the added dynamic here," Brzezinski...

    Mark Ruffalo, Marvel Studio’s “Hulk,” is pushing millions of fans to pressure NBC executives to stop hiring “white conservative” talent. Hollywood’s current “Bruce Banner” is angry that right-leaning and conservative commentators like Nicole Wallace, Hugh Hewitt, and George Will are allowed airtime on NBC and MSNBC. The actor, known for supporting the campaigns of Democrat politicians and environmental groups, is urging over 3 million Twitter followers to quash the shift by Andrew Lack, the chairman of NBC News and MSNBC. “Sign the petition: Tell @MSNBC @NBCNews to stop the white conservative hiring spree,” Mr. Ruffalo tweeted over the weekend. “Lack...
  • Will the ‘Roseanne’ Revival Be Pro-Trump?

    Lifezette ^ | June 13, 2017 | Zachary Leeman
    The upcoming revival of the beloved sitcom “Roseanne” could fill a void on television left in the wake of the cancellation of “Last Man Standing,” starring Tim Allen. Allen, who has identified many times as a political conservative, found success with his sitcom by appealing to Middle America and right-of-center audiences — crowds Hollywood typically ignores. Allen’s character was a conservative treated not as a villain or a buffoon, but rather as a human being. “Standing” was one of the few shows in which clichéd Donald Trump bashings weren’t inorganically peppered throughout the scripts. Despite incredibly high ratings and a...

    Back in February, I was riding on the New York to DC shuttle and CNN’s own Jeff Zucker was seated in the row behind me with a woman I took to be a colleague or personal assistant. She was yelling loudly into her phone, loudly enough that the other passengers took note of it, at one point escalating her voice to say: “If they want war with CNN, they got it.” When we landed, I noted the likely inspiration for the call: the administration had offered Mike Pence to every network except for CNN. Since the new administration arrived in...
  • Maher: Kathy Griffin 'should not go away'

    The Hill ^ | June 10, 2017 | Joe Concha
    HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that Kathy Griffin made a mistake but "should not go away" following the furor over her joking about beheading the president. Maher delivered a fierce defense of making mistakes as a comedian "going for a laugh" on his show this week. He said that comedienne Griffin owes him "a fruit basket for getting her off the front page" after he caused an uproar for using the n-word on his HBO program the prior week. Griffin was fired from her annual New Year's Eve co-hosting gig by CNN last week after holding up a bloodied...

    Ice Cube appeared on Bill Maher's HBO show on Friday (June 9), where he addressed Maher for referring to himself as a "house n****r" in a previous episode. The veteran rapper got serious with Maher when he asked him, "What made you think it was ok to say that?" Cube went on to say that it's very hurtful to him anytime a white person says the n-word, even if he says they didn't mean it. He explained, “It’s like a knife, man. When I hear my homies say it, it don’t feel like venom. When I hear a white person...

    Adam West, the ardent actor who managed to keep his tongue in cheek while wearing the iconic cowl of the Caped Crusader on the classic 1960s series Batman, has died. He was 88. West, who was at the pinnacle of pop culture after Batman debuted in January 1966, only to see his career fall victim to typecasting after the ABC show flamed out, died Friday night in Los Angeles after a short battle with leukemia, a family spokesperson said. West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren....
