On Friday's episode of TNT's "The Arena," Charles Barkley briefly deviated from the social justice narrative to question how long sports fans will stomach the media's obsession with non-stop racism and Black Lives Matter. Co-panelist Draymond Green, who plays forward for the Golden State Warriors, tried to steer Barkley back on course by insisting that people will be on the right side of…

Instead of opening with another thundering denouncing of white people, Thursday night's fourth episode of "The Arena" focused on racism as a "global pandemic" and put the heat on professional sports owners to provide space for social justice activities. Especially conservative owners who haven't yet aided the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

There's no pretense of political impartiality on TNT's The Arena (partnering with fellow AT&T property) Bleacher Report. Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost the race for governor in Georgia in 2018 and then cried "voter suppression," used the second installment of the program Tuesday evening to continue that accusation.

It should surprise no one that TNT’s post-apocalyptic series Snowpiercer is about as subtle as the 1001-car train the show follows. A class warfare story surrounding the survivors of climate change is about as blunt as one can get. Apparently, however, it can get worse. Now we’ve come to the “eat the rich” portion of our propaganda.

TNT’s Major Crimes continued its all-out assault on the Catholic Church and priests in its Tuesday, November 24 episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 3.” They also kept up with their caricature of deranged, gun-toting, right-wing white males who oppose illegal immigration to the point of wanting illegals dead, and, for good measure, took a quick jab at homeschooling, too.
