Contributing to the media's rush to discredit Donald Trump's resurrecting of former President Bill Clinton's marital infidelities in his campaign against wife Hillary, Bloomberg's With All Due Respect co-host John Heilemann chided Trump on Thursday for "play[ing] the rape card" and predicted it'd be of no benefit to him going forward towards November.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts held the company’s first virtual shareholder meeting on Thursday, and the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research questioned the company’s public advocacy for liberalism, including its “news” being biased at MSNBC.
Roberts also expressed joy at backing the gay-left censorship group GLAAD and their Media Awards -- for one-sided propaganda.

ABC's new series The Catch is certainly rife with the seven deadly sins but that doesn't stop them from sharing their “wisdom” when it comes to marriage. The mid-season finale of the cat and mouse style drama entitled “The Happy Couple: The Wedding” features a heist at a highend wedding. Two con-men, Ben and Rhys, attempt to weasel their way into the wedding by helping the couple (Stephanie and Morgan) plan the rehearsal dinner. Things take an interesting turn however when Morgan assumes Ben and Rhys are a gay couple.
Matt Taibbi: Conservative Republicans ‘Destroyed the American Character…No Hell Is Hot Enough For Them’By Tom Johnson | | May 19, 2016 | 11:39 PM EDT
Even though Donald Trump is “dumb” and “racist,” he might constitute an upgrade in the Republican party’s leadership, suggests Rolling Stone’s Taibbi. That’s because before Trump turned into the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, the public faces of the party were “mean, traitorous scum.” Republicans, wrote Taibbi in the magazine’s June 2 issue, “dominated American political life for 50 years and were never anything but monsters…Their leaders, from Ralph Reed to Bill Frist to Tom DeLay to Rick Santorum to [Mitt] Romney and [Paul] Ryan, were an interminable assembly line of shrieking, witch-hunting celibates…the kind of people who thought Iran-Contra was nothing, but would grind the affairs of state to a halt over a blow job or Terri Schiavo's feeding tube.”

CBS has taken a lot of heat from feminists this week over pilots chosen for their new fall lineup. Apparently they have nothing better to do than to monitor television and keep a tally for how many non-female and non-white male leads there are in the chosen pilots.

On Wednesday’s edition of Hannity, Donald Trump dropped the big one on the Hillary Clinton campaign, openly accusing former President Bill Clinton of Rape. Trump’s new line of attack has been telegraphed for months. And the liberal media reacted in the most predictable way, by claiming it has no basis in fact. “The rape accusation is decades-old and discredited,” ABC’s Tom Llamas stated, misleading the audience during Thursday’s World News Tonight.

The Washington Post released a poll on Thursday, which showed that 90% of Native Americans do not take offense to the word, Redskins. The sports media responded to this poll by apologizing for decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and trying to make a national crisis out of something that is not even a crisis in the Indian community. Just kidding. They freaked out.

On Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360, an eight-member panel consisting of only one solid conservative, combined with several solid liberals, was mostly down on GOP presidential candidate's short list of possible Supreme Court picks. With socially liberal Republican Margaret Hoover, who referred to the picks as a "dog whistle to social conservatives," joining with other liberals to gripe about the list, Kayleigh McEnany was left as the only panel member to advocate for the choices.
At one point, a liberal panel member -- Hillary Clinton supporter Christine Quinn -- ridiculously interpreted McEnany as praising the justices for being "white" when the conservative analyst was merely praising them for being ideologically similar to conservative Antonin Scalia.

In an online column posted on Wednesday, Joy-Ann Reid from the liberal MSNBC cable television channel behaved as a Democratic Party apparatchik by calling for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to “level with your dreamers” that his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has won the primary contest despite the fact that the socialist candidate made the contest “a hard-fought race.”
Reid, who is the anchor of AM Joy, which airs from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturdays and Sundays, began her article by stating that Sanders “must stop indulging his people’s fantasies, tell them the truth about the math -- and get them to stop with all the nasty about Clinton.”
Smoothing Hillary's Path to the Nomination? NYT Slams Sanders for Supporters' Actions During Nevada PrimaryBy Clay Waters | | May 19, 2016 | 7:10 PM EDT
Hillary Clinton has yet to put away challenger Bernie Sanders in her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, and her supporters at the New York Times (and the rest of the media) are trying to shield her from Sanders’ “harm,” while pointing fingers at him for the alleged violence and death threats committed by his supporters after suspicions of process-rigging during the Nevada primary. Refreshing as it is to see the media actually putting blame on a liberal politician or a political movement for the acts of his followers, it's also true that slamming Sanders helps smooth Hillary's path to the nomination.

Almost anything that airs on the Kremlin-backed Russia Today makes for interesting fodder and Wednesday night was no different as former MSNBC host Ed Schultz lashed out at the “stupid” “mainstream media” for selling out to Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claim that Bernie Sanders supporters incited “violence” at a Nevada convention last weekend.

In a commencement address to the University of Mississippi last Saturday, NBC anchor Tom Brokaw lectured that “more guns” “will mean more homegrown acts of terror.” The veteran journalist, who worked for years with the unreliable Brian Williams, also dismissed websites that say “to heck with the truth.” On guns, Brokaw chided, “I'm appalled by the determination of organizations and individuals to arm more people without any appreciation of the consequence of ever more lethal weapons in our midst.” He added, “More guns and more firearm tolerance will mean more homegrown acts of terror.”

Everyone from Fred Astaire to Miley Cyrus is an offender when it comes to accidentally mocking other cultures, sometimes just by referencing them. “Cultural appropriation” is the newest sin against political correctness.
Outrage over culture caricatures spiked this year over everything from supermodels in Native American headdresses to sports team names. Movies and music were a popular battleground for the blame game.

On CNN Thursday afternoon, Chris Cuomo sat down with Hillary Clinton to discuss the recent conflicts in the Democratic party and what her strategy will be to defeat Trump, if she becomes the eventual nominee. Instead of asking hard-hitting questions that have been raised by Clinton’s critics, Cuomo followed the majority of the media’s example and asked Clinton sympathetic softball questions like, “Do you ever feel compelled to defend your honor [or] the honor of your husband?” and How does your mother “inspire” you to “get up” after being attacked?

The Huffington Post has uncovered a fact that thousands of Biblical scholars and theologians have missed: Jesus was the first transgender man.
To HuffPo writer Suzanne Dewitt Hall, “the current flap in conservative Christian circles about bathroom access is a bit baffling.” She claims that God created transgenders in Genesis, after all.
