    Cable television ratings for A&E Network have plummeted since it canceled the hit police reality show, “Live PD” on June 10, according to the Wall Street Journal. Following the death of George Floyd and riots led by “Black Lives Matter” across the country, A&E Network capitulated to demands to cancel the law enforcement show saying in a statement: “This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD. Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the...

    accuracy in media (AIM) ^ | January 12, 2016 | James Simpson
    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    A Republican in Congress raised the name of the CIA officer accused of being the Ukraine whistleblower during a congressional hearing about Puerto Rico last month. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas asked Natalie Jaresko, Ukraine’s former finance minister, who is now executive director of the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico, whether she had any involvement with National Security Council officials in her previous post. He cited an April 2016 meeting at a Le Pain Quotidien restaurant close to the White House between Eric Ciaramella, another White House official, and Ukrainian parliamentarian Olga Bielkova.

  • KKK Leaders Allege Producers Paid Them to Fake Scenes in Canceled A&E Documentary

    Variety ^ | 12/30/2016
    The subjects of a TV documentary series about the Ku Klux Klan abruptly canceled last week by A&E allege to Variety that significant portions of what was filmed were fabricated by the producers. Some KKK leaders divulged that they were paid hundreds of dollars in cash each day of filming to compel them on camera to distort the facts of their lives to fit the documentary’s predetermined narrative: tension between Klan members and relatives of theirs who wanted to get out of the Klan. The findings are based on an exclusive Variety investigation based on interviews with over two dozen...

    Michael SchneiderDecember 27,2016 Just a day after the cable network hoped to silence criticism on its Ku Klux Klan-centric docuseries “Generation KKK” by changing the title, the network has now canceled the show all together. In a statement, the network said it scrapped the series (which had been renamed “Escaping the KKK”) after discovering that participants on the show, including Klan members, were paid to participate by production company This Is Just A Test. “A&E learned last night from the third-party producers who made the documentary that cash payments — which we currently understand to be nominal — were made...

    By now you've heard the story (a few times): 50-plus women have accused Bill Cosby of various combinations of drugging and sexual assault that allegedly took place over the course of five decades. Banding together in a sort of makeshift sisterhood, the accusers have grown in both numbers and conviction, participating in numerous interviews, feature articles, and now a TV special. While A+E's Cosby: The Women Speak wasn't exactly packed with new information, it still managed to pique our interest just the same. Here's nine noteworthy moments from the hour-long special that shed a bit more light onto the case...

    It seems that the A&E Duck Dynasty controversy has come to a conclusion. In the aftermath of this dispute, after all the words exchanged have been reviewed, what can we learn? I believe that the public responses surrounding this recent chain of events reveal several observable trends and ideologies about us as a society. Thus, the following theses presented below are based upon what I believe is the trending American ideology and ethos towards scripture, ethics, and what it values. Thesis #1: Society is unable to apply the simple rules of grammar to scripture. In the debated GQ Interview, it...

    GLAAD needs a makeover. Their Queer Eye for Straight Guy Phil Robertson blew up in their face. Just ask A&E. Not since the young Vito Corleone persuaded landlord Signor Roberto’s to “walkback” his decision to evict the poor widow and her dog (“and the dog stays, right?”) has a business decision been reversed as abruptly, awkwardly or hilariously. We can only wonder what Phil Robertson’s version of “and the dog stays, right?” sounded like to the hat-holding and stuttering A&E executives. “Who put a book by that filthy f*ggot on my shelf!” snarled Che Guevara (subject of a History Channel...

    The same Disney that suspended 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson from its A&E network for expressing his religious views about homosexuality (until being forced to reverse it after a massive viewer revolt), clearly has no problem pushing the homosexual agenda in the faces of millions of Americans who watch the annual Tournament of Roses Parade on its ABC network on New Year's Day. That's right. Two Los Angeles men plan to celebrate their "gay marriage" on a float in this year's parade in Pasadena, California. The move has understandably sparked controversy and even a boycott. Danny Leclair, 45, and Aubrey Loots, 42,...

    It’s always nice to be validated, so I was pleased to read Roger Kimball’s column yesterday, Benghazi: The New York Times vs. the Truth. (Completely off-topic, butt does anybody know if they ever caught that one-armed man?) He concurs with my theory that Hilz is this season’s rehab project. “How are we to understand the Times’s latest entry into the contest to rewrite history for ideological fun and profit? My own sense is that it has less to do with salvaging President Obama’s tattered reputation — he is well on his way to winning the prize for the least competent and...

    At the end of a second week of--what can only be described as--an abysmal public relations failure, Arts & Entertainment Television revealed something very intriguing to the watching world. Their foolish action in the non-issue of Phil Robertson, exposed three rather profound lessons that voters and candidates would be very advised to pay attention to. 1. Economics still defeats activism -- Let's face it, the minute the spokespeople from GLAAD began screaming on the other end of the phone, A&E executives got nervous. A lot of A&E programming is aimed at rather promiscuous audiences. GLAAD surely threw around threats of...

    Now that A&E executives have surrendered to the will of hundreds of thousands of "Duck Dynasty" fans and welcomed Phil Robertson back to the show nearly 10 days after creating a firestorm when they suspended him for expressing views about sexuality that are pretty much shared by many other conservative Christians, it's time to see who the winners and losers are. The winners: Robertson and his family.They held fast to their values and learned how deep their fan base really is. The family's admission of regret about his statements to GQ was no surrender, given that his comments were never...

    Does A&E have a spelunking reality show because they’re gonna need one to keep track of ALL THE CAVES.A week after the patriarch of A&E’s ratings juggernaut “Duck Dynasty” family was indefinitely suspended by the network for comments he made about homosexuality in a magazine interview, Robertson is back. Now, the national firestorm that erupted over A&E’s hasty disciplining of the reality star will no doubt erupt again, this time for its hasty reinstatement of him. Because how could the screaming elements of the Left possibly allow a person with views different from their own to be on TV and...

    The war between Duck Dynasty and A&E isn't over. This was merely the initial battle and the Left and the homosexual community lost in the court of public opinion. And that is something the left just will not tolerate. NOTICE: 1) A&E made their announcement very late this Friday and during the lull between Christmas and New Years. Too late for the pundits to chat about this. Most networks have second or third stringers on so not too much coverage there. 2) A&E has noted in the article they will be airing PSA announcements during the show promoting tolerance, etc....

    Compares to bus driver who challenged Rosa Parks by John UrbanTop Right News Not content to be left on the sidelines of any controversy, Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is sticking his nose into the Phil Robertson affair. Jackson, clearly unhappy that only homosexual activists have had the stage thus far, attacked the star of A&E’s reality show “Duck Dynasty,” claiming that Robertson’s comments to GQ reflect “white privilege.” Jackson even absurdly compared Robertson to the bus driver who ordered Rosa Parks to move to the back of the bus in a statement obtained by ABC News: “These statements uttered by Robertson are...
