  • Google’s left-wing bias steers users to vicious articles trashing the late Roger Ailes

    Google is by far the most used search engine in the world. Think about that. Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans. This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered.

    The Politico ^ | May 20, 2017 | Tara Palmeri
    As she travels with the president this week, the first lady — who flags negative stories about her husband while she's in New York — will be in a position to exert greater influence over his chaotic operation. Melania Trump’s spent her first few months as first lady in New York, only rarely appearing in Washington or speaking at events. Yet friends and aides say she’s keeping a close watch from her gilded apartment in Trump Tower on how her husband is portrayed in the press—and that she’s growing increasingly worried about the anonymous sniping from West Wing staff.

  • Media Assails Trump’s “Witch Hunt” Accusation [fake satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 May 2017 | John Semmens
    President Donald Trump’s accusation that the media have subjected him to “the worst witch hunt ever experienced by an American politician” was assailed by NBC’s Lester Holt as “wrong in so many ways.” “Mr .Trump’s careless use of the language is yet another page of the case against his presidency,” Holt contended. “Witches are female. The continuing efforts of the GOP to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton that former FBI Director James Comey declared baseless could be fairly described as a witch hunt. The pursuit of Trump’s conspiracy with the Russians to derail her presidential bid would be more accurately...

    Saturday Night Live‘s new “Weekend Update” team of Michael Che and Colin Jost have had to deal with more real backlash than most fake news anchors. Jost has been criticized for a joke he did about transgendered people. Che’s been lambasted for comments he made about street harassment and racism in Boston. But yet they still soldier on, all in the name of comedy. GQ recently caught up with the co-hosts, interviewing them about the state of comedy in 2017 and what it’s like on Weekend Update in the Trump era. In regards to whether people are too sensitive these...

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | May 19, 2017 | Ronald A. Klain, Special to the Washington Post
    Last October, we were in the midst of debate preparation for Hillary Clinton when news of the "Access Hollywood" tape broke. The senior Clinton team immediately wondered what the event's impact would be. Would there still be a debate two days later? Would Donald Trump show up? Would his running mate, Mike Pence, take his place? How could Trump survive? Trump not only showed up for the St. Louis debate that Sunday, he stood on the stage and told Clinton that if it were up to him she'd "be in jail." Ten days later, Trump insisted at the Las Vegas...
  • Bernie Goldberg Real Talk: Hannity’s Pro-Trump ‘Ranting’ Really ‘Doesn’t Get a Lot Accomplished’

    Mediaite ^ | May 19, 2017 | Justin Baragona
    Over the past week or so, with the White House rocked by bombshell report after bombshell report, Fox News host Sean Hannity has ramped up his pro-Trump coverage. Last night, he called on supporters of the president to “fight back” against anti-Trump forces, namely the mainstream media and Democrats. During an appearance on America’s Newsroom, Fox News contributor Bernie Goldberg explained that while he thinks Hannity is right on many things, overall, it is essentially sound and fury, signifying nothing. Noting that Hannity is correct that media would like nothing better than to bring President Trump down, there’s “crazies on...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 14 May 2017 | John Semmens
    Appalling repression in the White House dining room came to light when the media exposed the scandalous story of how President Trump gets more and better food than other diners. In a Time magazine article it was revealed that at White House dinners Trump gets Diet Coke (everyone else gets water), Trump gets Thousand Island dressing (everyone else gets vinaigrette), Trump gets two scoops of ice cream (everyone else gets one). CNN's Jeanne Moos saw this as "unjustifiable discrimination—the kind that makes you wonder whether Trump thinks he's king." In support of this theory, Moos cited the fact that "Vice-President...

    Bill O’Reilly gave his first interview since his firing from Fox News in April on Glenn Beck’s radio show on Friday.Beck, while stating prior to the interview wouldn’t be about O’Reilly’s firing, nonetheless spoke to the former cable news powerhouse about his unceremonious dismissal. “Look, the entire ordeal was a hit job, and in the weeks to come, we will be able to explain some of it. It really has to do with destroying voices that the far-left doesn’t like. That’s the general tone,” O’Reilly said. O’Reilly went on to explain in vague terms “due to the legality,” of...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/13/17 | Jeff Crouere
    Unfortunately, broadcast television networks today are not interested in appealing to the massive Trump electorate Despite healthy ratings, ABC promptly cancelled Tim Allen’s popular sitcom, Last Man Standing this week. The show was a successful part of the ABC line-up for six years. While some media reports claim that ABC cancelled the show due to poor ratings, the truth is that the program was the second highest rated comedy and the third highest rated “scripted” show on the network. In fact, during the final years of the show, Last Man Standing drew an impressive average of 8.1 million viewers each...

    Among the services he implores: Russia’s. Calling on the Kremlin to doxx a major American politician whose agenda might damage the country was seen as highly, highly inappropriate when it happened during the campaign. What changed? And who is this guy? He seems awfully angry. He strikes me as the sort who spent a lot of time during the Bush years lambasting the Republican “politics of fear,” yet who now behaves as though he’s transmitting from a bunker because The Regime might “disappear” him if they knew his location. He’s so febrile that you have to believe the only reason...

    Dwayne Johnson just might be one of the most popular celebrities in America, and it isn’t just because of his acting. In a recent GQ story titled, “Dwayne Johnson for President”, writer Caity Weaver showed the side of Johnson that has earned him the widely-accepted title of “Nicest Guy in America.” Johnson has learned something that most of Hollywood would do well to copy: the value of listening before talking in politics. Unlike perennial left-leaning superstar singers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, he isn’t standing on stage, leading rallies for politicians.  He also isn’t channeling vulgar overtures to convince Americans to...

    Human shield. We love Tim Tebow here - even if he does play in the Mets organization - and we’re always happy to hear that something positive has happened in his career and in his life. So when ESPN re-upped with Tebow on his deal to be part of its college football studio offerings, we were nothing if not pleased. If Tebow wants to do TV while pursuing his baseball dreams, we’re all over it. But we couldn’t help but wonder: Does ESPN usually make such a big deal out of an existing talent re-signing? Because if one were inclined...

    How like sheep are liberals? Easily led, like lambs to the slaughter. CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert (of ‘cock holster’ infamy) informed his audience Tuesday evening at the taping of the Late Show of the then-breaking news that FBI Director James Comey had just been fired by President Donald Trump. Colbert’s liberal audience erupted in wild cheers at the news that their defeated 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s nemesis (over his handling of Clinton’s email investigation) was finally dealt justice. A stunned Colbert rebuked the audience, waving a shaming finger at them and saying, “Huge, huge Donald Trump fans...

    During last year’s presidential campaign, Jared Kushner reportedly made a deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group: The Trump campaign would provide Sinclair’s local news stations with intimate access to the candidate, in exchange for “fair” coverage of the GOP nominee. Here are some of the ways that Sinclair kept its broadcasts fair and balanced, according to the Washington Post: Sinclair-owned stations and its Washington bureau scored 15 “exclusive” interviews with Trump over the past year, including 11 during the final three months of the campaign in critical states such as Pennsylvania and Ohio. They did 10 more with Trump’s running mate,...

    Yeah, he’s talkin’ to Trump...and you. On Monday night during his speech accepting the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Chaplin Award, actor Robert De Niro blasted the Trump administration. "I don't make movies for rich liberal elites,” De Niro said at the event, which took place at Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theatre. “We make movies to entertain audiences. Audiences vote by seeing them; critics vote by writing about them; and then posterity takes its time to decide if they’re art - or not.” He continued: I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because of our government’s hostility towards...

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership. Fox News has potential competition from another right-leaning media network. Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up 42 of Tribune Media’s broadcast stations for nearly $4 billion dollars, raising speculation that the conglomerate is prepared to compete with Fox News for their Republican and Libertarian audience. With Tribune’s 42 TV stations, Sinclair will cover more than 70 percent of households in the United States. It will become the largest local broadcast...

According to a report made by the Clarion-Ledger, Smith changed his speech at the last minute to reflect the crux of the conversation and decided to tell his own story of inclusivity and diversity.“It wasn’t until seven, or eight, or nine...

    The US Federal Communications Commission will look into complaints made against talk show host Stephen Colbert for what some have labelled a homophobic joke about President Donald Trump. Colbert faced a backlash following the Monday night airing of The Late Show, during which he made numerous jokes about Trump during his opening monologue. Among them, he said: "The only thing [Trump's] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's c**k holster." Viewers took to social media to declare Colbert's joke homophobic. The hashtag #FireColbert began spreading around Twitter, along with calls for people to boycott sponsors of the late-night show....

    Hollywood anti-Trump Resistance members aren’t exactly in short supply right now but Josh Gad is an especially ridiculous one. When not voicing Star Wars Rebels, Angry Birds or Frozen spinoffs (he’s Olaf), Gad is to be found venting violent spleen about Trump that renders Marvel filmmaker Joss Whedon rather milquetoast by way of comparison. Take a look at his reaction yesterday on Twitter to House Republicans passing a revamped health care bill that repealed much of Obamacare:(TWEETS-AT-LINK) Gad also retweeted Patton Oswalt equating supporters of the repeal of ‘Obamacare’ with “Cattle cheering McDonald’s”. Gad- who was caught up in the...

    On the run-up to the election, Michael Moore was one of the few public figures who correctly predicted that Trump would win the election. More to the point, Moore pointed out Trump's methodology for victory and sure enough, that's exactly what happened. You'd have to wonder how a middle-aged filmmaker managed to out-think the likes of Nate Silver and dozens of other pollsters, but here we are - living in the awful reality that a fat, corrupt hustler with spray-tan is now the leader of the free world. In a recent interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, Moore was asked...
