Women’s magazines have been fertile propaganda ground for liberals and feminists for years. That’s even true for magazines for teenaged girls. The May issue of Seventeen is a “Get Inspired!” issue, and the cover promises inspiration from “Michelle Obama on Reaching Higher” and “Lena Dunham on Standing Out.” Transgender activist/actor Charles “Laverne” Cox offers the most propaganda-per-inch for the teens.

They also carried a six-page spread pushing the cause of 17-year-old "Dreamer" Rixa Rivera in Idaho, complete with recommendations on how to do hashtag activism for the Left.

Alec Baldwin, famous liberal actor (and public-radio talk show host at WNYC-FM), started a Twitter battle with fellow liberals about traffic-blocking protests in mid-town Manhattan on behalf of the "Fight for $15" minimum-wage demands. Occupy somewhere else, he seemed to proclaim to more than a million followers at his foundation's Twitter account.

Last October, we relayed that the NBCUniversal-owned Syfy cable network made a development deal with leftist actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck for a corporate-dystopia series called “Incorporated.” Now The Hollywood Reporter is offering an update: Syfy has greenlighted the making of a pilot episode.

Corporate leftists demonstrate a surprising capacity for hypocrisy. The Syfy press release – coming out of Comcast, a large entertainment conglomerate with one of the largest lobbying staffs in the nation’s capital – comically imagines today’s trend in Obama-era government is a “dismantling of the public sector."

 It looks like new Daily Show host Trevor Noah will survive his Twitter vetting. The South African comic took some heat immediately after getting the gig earlier this week. Social media users scoured his past tweets, finding a number of jokes targeting women and Jews. Comedy Central rushed to stand by its new hire, and it appears the Stewart-to-Noah baton pass will take place later in the year as scheduled.

Noah would never get in trouble merely for making gross remarks about Republicans.

Carl Koslowski at Hollywood In Toto reports leftist actor Ed Asner recently took an hour from his busy schedule to discuss both his career and political involvements with The Campaign with Ernie Powell on the Radio Titans podcast network.

Asner played  journalist Lou Grant, but he bizarrely thinks the media are not liberal at all. There’s only right-wing newspapers and “at best centrist TV networks.”

During the red carpet show leading up to the 40th anniversary special of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, actor Jim Carrey ended his interview with Today co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie on a rather awkward note by suddenly asking them where NBC is “hiding” suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. Carrey interjected with: “Can I ask you guys a question? Where are you hiding Brian Williams? Where is he?”

To Yesha Callahan of The Root, actor Vince Vaughn's critique of affirmative action -- which is rooted in his libertarian political leanings -- is not worth engaging on an intellectual level as a debatable philosophical proposition. It's just straight-up invalid because Vaughn is "tall," "rich" and "white."

Mexican-American comedian George Lopez recently offered some telling commentary about his politics. During an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Lopez said he does not publicly identify as either a Democrat or Republican. However, he acknowledged he faces a quandary.

Lena Dunham is blissfully untroubled by self-awareness. It’s a quality that might be endearing in someone less repulsive. But in a recent interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons it comes off as the obnoxiousness of a spoiled brat.

Take, for instance, when the 28-year-old, who’s currently flogging her memoir (even Obama had the decency to wait until his early 30s), and much of who’s work in “Girls” is at least somewhat autobiographical said, “I never want to become someone where like what’s happening to me becomes the entirety of the reality of the world.”

If, like his character in the “Taken” franchise, Liam Neeson has a “very particular set of skills,” it doesn’t include recognizing his own hypocrisy. While the hyper-violent “Taken 3” was pulling down $39.2 million at the box office its opening weekend, Neeson was in Dubai railing against guns.

Twitchy reports it's time again for another round of feminists being furious that a successful actress told an interviewer she doesn’t really identify with their F-word. This time, it’s Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, now making $1 million per episode on the CBS nerd-com The Big Bang Theory.

In a Redbook cover story, they asked Cuoco-Sweeting if she considered herself a feminist. Her answer acknowledged the progress before her, but also accepted some of the traditions she observed in her childhood. One might call that position “pro-choice.” But not the feminists!
