  • Prepare For Pop Culture To Shove Cool Kamala Down Your Throat

    The Federalist ^ | August 14, 2020 | Emily Jashinsky
    It took Debra Messing 18 exclamation points to express her excitement about Kamala Harris. Chrissy Teigen used a comparatively mild two, but the point still stands: an army of celebrities leapt to lend Harris their support this week. Hollywood loves her. (Just like Wall Street!) The star-studded industry’s embrace of Harris means the Democratic ticket will benefit from extra elite enthusiasm—Biden may not excite liberal celebrities like Barack Obama, but adding Harris as a running mate will amp up Hollywood’s enthusiasm for the ticket. That, in turn, means the Democratic Party’s narrative will be reinforced through the power of celebrity...

    Friday on MSNBC, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said while it was not a justification for the violence in her city, she believed the looters are exploiting the anger and frustration caused by President Donald Trumps coronavirus response. Guest-host Chris Jansing said, First, let me ask you how your city is doing after the violence this past weekend?

    by Joe Callen Slow Joe Biden has been struggling to connect with younger voters -- a crucial demographic he needs to try and beat Trump. Biden cannot seem to generate anywhere near the level of enthusiasm among Gen-Z and Millennial voters as did Bernie Sanders. CNN reported that one of the reasons Joe chose ultra-left wing VP mate Kamala Harris was to "energize" young people -- which is bizarre g9iven how Harris went on a rampage imprisoning young people for minor weed offenses as California Attorney General. But a new video unearthed by conservative Jason Howerton will absolutely crush...

    President Donald Trump and his team are already nervous about the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as former Vice President Joe Bidens running mate, Nicolle Wallace said on Tuesday night. This was the pick that scared them the most, the MSNBC host said. Trump, she noted, simply doesnt have the capacity to see a VP as someone to help run the country. He only saw this in terms of a casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, Wallace said. Trump and his team believe Harris will more than handle Vice President Mike Pence...

  • Trump Says Hydroxychloroquine 'Would Be the Hottest Thing' if He Had Not Endorsed It to Treat COVID-19

    Newsweek ^ | 08/11/2020 | Katherine Fung
    President Trump said hydroxychloroquine "would be the hottest thing" had he not endorsed the anti-malaria drug as a treatment for COVID-19. "If I would have said, 'I don't believe in it. It doesn't work,' it would be the hottest thing going right now," he said Tuesday morning. In an interview on sports radio show Outkick, Trump told host Clay Travis that the drug "causes no problem," citing his own use of hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against the virus in May. "As soon as I came out with it, they said 'Oh, it doesn't work.' They went crazy," Trump added,...

    Left-wing feminist groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Times Up, and Emilys List have sent urgent notices to media outlets, warning them that Joe Bidens female running mate is likely to be subjected to sexist and racist attacks. A woman VP candidate, possibly a Black or Brown woman candidate, requires the same kind of internal consideration about systemic inequality as you undertook earlier this year, the abortion rights supporters wrote to media heads, as NBC News reported. The coalition leaders include Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, NARAL President Ilyse Hogue, Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson, Former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile...

    VIDEO Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe reacted in a very strange way to polls showing that Joe Biden is winning in the battleground states. You don't have to be a body language expert to see the oddity of Mika revealing her deep sadness over this to the point she seems to be on the verge of crying. It could be she is having flashbacks back to 2016 when the polls guaranteed a Hillary Clinton victory. Mika is also upset that the post office can't seem to handle millions of possible mail-in ballots. Hey, Mika, it's the Post Office! It's...

    Cardboard cutouts are life size replicas of a person, typically famous, perfect for parties, events, and photoshoots, as Amazon describes for a cardboard cutout of President Trump. As Amazon explains, these cutouts are easy to assemble, stand on their own, wont break or damage easily and best of all come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Joe Biden is a cardboard cutout candidate. He was easy to assemble. He did no work on his own with his handlers at CNN and MSNBC assembling his candidacy out of the ash heap of the Democrat primaries. Granted Bidens primary opponents were as...

    NBC News 12 ^ | 08.07.20 | By Graham Moomaw
    A misunderstanding of Virginias independent cities and counties apparently led a nonprofit voter registration group to mail 587,638 absentee ballot applications to Virginia voters that asked them to send the ballot back to the wrong election office. The Center for Voter Information said the mishap was an honest mistake mainly affecting voters in a handful of localities that share a name: including Fairfax City and Fairfax County, Richmond City and Richmond County, Roanoke City and Roanoke County, and Franklin City and Franklin County.... The mass mailing, which involved more than 2.2 million pre-filled absentee ballot applications statewide, sowed confusion for...

    On Fridays broadcast of MSNBCs The ReidOut, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) reacted to National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director William Evaninas statement on threats to the 2020 election coming from Russia, China, and Iran by stating that They are truly trying to conflate threats, I believe, to protect the president. Host Joy Reid asked, What do you make of the fact that theres all this other information too about Iran and China. Do you worry that that information is being included in order to get it past Donald Trump, meaning, have something in there to both-sides it so that...

    Educators from around the country have been reflecting on what they teach and how they teach it in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the national protests that followed. Some lessons up for reconsideration: the dismissive take that it was simply "the norm" that Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves in the late 1700s and language around Christopher Columbus' "discovery" of America.

    Thursday on MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell Reports, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) weighed in on the possibility of President Donald Trump giving his speech accepting the Republican Party presidential nomination from the White House, despite some suggesting it could a violation of the Hatch Act. -snip I think its an outrage, Gillibrand lamented. President Trump continues to demean his office. He continues to break norms, and if anyone helps him do his speech, its in violation of the Hatch Act. So he may well be exempt, but again, to misuse federal resources for political gain is something that we do not tolerate...

    Whats it like behind the scenes at MSNBC? Ratings and politics were at the core of every editorial decision, according to one former producer, forcing skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis. In a letter about her July 24 departure from MSNBC, Ariana Pekary explains why she left. Its possible that Im more sensitive to the editorial process due to my background in public radio, where no decision I ever witnessed was predicated on how a topic or guest would 'rate.' The longer I was at MSNBC, the more I saw such choices its practically baked...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    FACT CHECK: Shes right. Ariana Pekary, a producer at the evil, Goebbels-style fake news operation MSNBC who resigned last month, has written a parting letter in which she classifies MSNBC and other TV news operations as a cancer on our country. Its pretty hard to argue with that. The letter, posted on her blog, accuses the networks producers of exactly what youd expect choosing stories and panel guests not based on their newsworthiness but on how they might help with the ratings: Its possible that Im more sensitive to the editorial process due to my background in public...

    MSNBC producer Ariana Pekary quit the network in July and wrote a blog post Monday explaining how she believes the news including her former network is fundamentally flawed....The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others all because it pumps up the ratings, Pekary continued. This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The former MSNBC producer wrote that this cancer risks our democracy, too, and that context and factual data are often considered too cumbersome for the audience....
