CNN host Van Jones, a former Obama White House aide, interviewed NBC late-night host Seth Meyers with the usual reverence that liberals offer to comedians of the Resistance. "You're an icon. You're a legend," Jones gushed. "You're doing a phenomenal service to the country."
But the best comedy in this interview came when Jones asked about the ...Read more
Former President Barack Obama is swaggering around and claiming he didn't really have any scandals as president. In February, he said we "didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us." This only means shamelessness can seem like a winning tactic. In May, he said, "I didn't have scandals, which seems like it shouldn't be something you brag about."
Feminists who embrace the "right" to abortion -- the right to destroy an unborn life on a woman's demand at any point in pregnancy -- just will not accept they are powerful enough in Hollywood. Abortion scenes in TV and movies need to be more "educational" and end the "stigma" of violence against unborn babies, such as being torn to pieces and ...Read more
Anyone who walks past a newsstand knows that Time magazine hates Donald Trump. Don't doubt us. You'd lose. In 2016, it pictured his orange face melting on the cover and then, months later, that same face melted into an orange puddle. Time considered it unthinkable that he would win. Then, once he won, two different covers imagined an endangered ...Read more
What is it about our entertainment elites that makes them think they are so much wiser than everyone else? Why do they seem to think that comedians like Samantha Bee and Donald Trump impersonators like Alec Baldwin are going to save America with their rants?
The arrogance of the late-night "comedians" overflowed when Bee called Ivanka Trump a "...Read more

Who knew we would look back at Roseanne Barr's crotch-grabbing massacre of the national anthem in 1990 and see a mere flesh wound on her career? She embarrassed herself, mocking America in front of America, but her hit show rolled along.
But one egregiously racist tweet destroyed the "Roseanne" reboot of 2018 in a Hollywood minute. Tweeting ...Read more
Over Memorial Day weekend, NBC's Chuck Todd opened his show "Meet the Press" by angrily lecturing his viewers about a so-called Trump "tactical playbook" on how to spin the Robert Mueller probe and the FBI informant in his presidential campaign.
Here's Todd's list of Trump tactics, with our commentary:
1. "Perhaps fearing that Mueller is ...Read more
As the television season wraps up, it seems that Satan is having a bad year on Fox. The still-Rupert Murdoch-owned network canceled not only its devil drama "Lucifer" but also "The Exorcist," which "blessed" us with anti-religious plots about sexually active gay and straight priests and mercy-killing nuns. It even waved goodbye to the sitcom "...Read more
Months ago, the Old Media proclaimed that President Donald Trump was more than a bit nutty in insisting his campaign was the subject of surveillance by the Obama administration. Now it's emerging that this wasn't the slightest bit nutty. The New York Times reported -- in a tone much like having its fingernails dragged across a chalkboard -- that...Read more
Some people were scandalized when secular celebrities from Rihanna to Madonna dressed up in glitzy bishop hats and bejeweled crowns of crosses for the hot-ticket Metropolitan Museum of Art gala in Manhattan. The fundraiser was organized around the theme "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," based on an exhibit containing items...Read more
Our "news" media are addicted to damaging internal leaks from the Trump White House, especially when the leaks make Team Trump look wildly insensitive. The two most common words in the press today are "sources say." Now the country is spending a week with the media demanding a public apology from White House aide Kelly Sadler, who reportedly ...Read more
California has a hallowed but questionable reputation as being the birthplace of the radical Free Speech Movement on the University of California, Berkeley campus.

The television networks have flooded us with hours and hours of coverage of the Robert Mueller probe as they continue to look under every rock for some sign of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. But on May 4, a federal judge harshly blasted Mueller's tactics in court, even going as far as challenging the scope of his authority in this ...Read more
There's a swagger in Cecile Richards' step as she conducts a book tour around the media surrounding her departure from the summit of Planned Parenthood after 12 years. Call it a victory lap. Everywhere she goes, adoring liberal interviewers ask her if she'll run for office next. After all, it's not like she has millions of little skeletons in ...Read more
The Center for American Progress, founded in 2003 by former Bill Clinton chief of staff John Podesta, promotes itself as pushing "bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action."

Back in '92, the late Paul Weyrich and I held a press conference during the Republican National Convention to make two announcements.
First, we were endorsing George Bush 41's re-election. Second, we'd just made the most meaningless endorsement in history. He had so thoroughly bungled his first term that there was nothing to be done to save him...Read more

The intense fear and loathing that permeates news coverage of President Donald Trump is being multiplied on television dramas. Impeachment scenarios and 25th Amendment removal strategies are rolling around in the brains of scriptwriters.
Barbara Hall, the creator of the pro-Hillary Clinton CBS show "Madam Secretary," claimed "We just take ...Read more
The definition of "news" is very elastic these days. Another word we could use is "publicity." When former FBI Director James Comey's publisher, MacMillan, boasts that it will kill enough trees to print 850,000 copies -- when a decent fraction of sales is in e-books and audiobooks -- publicity is clearly booming.
The "news" media are stuffing ...Read more
