  • Hillary Clinton calls 2016 the first 'reality TV campaign' (she lost because she was too honest)

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said the 2016 campaign was the first "reality TV campaign," bringing its own unique set of challenges. "My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality," Mrs. Clinton said in an interview that aired Wednesday on "The Hugh Hewitt Show." She said that running after a two-term president of the same party also brought its challenges in the campaign, adding it was hard to argue she was an agent of change when she supported much of former President Barack Obama's agenda. "If you are...
  • Trump's Image Among Democrats, Independents Most Negative of Any GOP Candidate

    As the Republican candidates prepare for their next debate Thursday night in North Charleston, South Carolina, Donald Trump will once again be center stage -- as a result of the Fox Business Network's calculations of who has done best in various trial heat polls nationally and in key states. Despite his poll standing, Trump's image among Republicans is certainly not the most positive of the major candidates, and new calculations show that Trump has by far the worst image of any major Republican candidate among Democrats and independents. These results are based on Gallup Daily tracking data collected between Dec....

  • Donald Trump Just Received The BEST NEWS POSSIBLE! He Didn’t Even Expect THIS!

    As the Republican candidates prepare for tonight's GOP debate on Fox Business... conservative GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump just received news so extraordinary that he didn't even expect it! According to a bombshell report by the Washington Post, not only is Trumps lead among Republicans at historic levels, but his national lead is TWO TIMES BIGGER THAN HILLARY CLINTON'S! This announcement of polling data destroys the arguments made by the political establishment that Trump isn't electable in a general election. There is no candidate in either party that has this sort of massive appeal among likely voters: National polling doesn't...
  • CR Editors: Trump’s Questionable Political History

    It is hard not to feel protective over Donald Trump while the political classes are seething and scornful. They are unacquainted with such powerlessness. Control was never supposed to stray this far from their grasp. And their rage, manifested in every hapless attack on Trump and his supporters, actually seems to be improving the likelihood of that outcome they fear most of all. How tempting, under these circumstances, to rush to his defense, as so many in the conservative movement have already done. The Donald has boldly made himself a standard bearer of unpopular (…within the political bubble), yet critical...

    One of the Discovery Channel's most successful of many forays into the Alaskan way of life has been the polarizing Alaskan Bush People, which chronicles the Brown family's desire to live off the grid. The show has a huge following and scored big ratings for the cable network. The family has drawn its share of controversy over its run on TV also. Now, after news surfaced a couple years ago that some family members were indicted on fraud charges when applying for Alaska's oil fund payments, two of the Browns face some jail time. The oil wealth fund, established in...

    The more high-brow sorts of reality shows involve taking a group of people, sometimes a family, into a period in history and see how they cope. Examples of this subset of the genre include The 1900 House and The Colonial House. The viewer was invited to have fun watching people having to cope without modern conveniences while wearing quaint costumes. The Associated Press reported on Friday that a reality show in the Czech Republic, entitled A Vacation in the Protectorate, is going to take a family back to the days of the Nazi occupation and see how they cope with...

American Pickers showcases the exploits of expert pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they search for Americas most valuable antiques. The two are interested in everything from old motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. They urge folks to tell them about unique collections...

    After only one short season, Senator John McCain's daughter Meghan saw the cancellation of her reality show, Raising McCain. However, on the heels of that cancellation, the Pivot Network has now announced that McCain will host a midnight political talk show. McCain's reality show debuted in September but apparently is already done. Despite the personal appeal of its star to liberals, Raising McCain was widely panned by reviewers. In fact, it was mocked outright. The show was said to be plumbing "new depths of irritation" and was a "caricature of youth political engagement." One reviewer even pointedly said that the...
  • Yet Another So-Called Reality Show Mocks Christians

    First came The Sisterhood, a supposed Christian reality show, which debuted this past January on TLC network. It was advertised as a candid look into the lives of five Atlanta preachers wives who arent your typical church ladies, TLC teased. Indeed, these pastors wives were very much in touch with their sexuality, as they explored such topics as pornography and masturbation. They also kept it real when talking about getting high, with one of the wives telling her fellow first ladies about her crack smoking. And they burnished their street cred by getting tatted up. Then came Preachers Daughters, another...

    When I was channel surfing, I came across this show and it looked and sounded ridiculous. But once you give it a chance, it really draws you in. Contestants (1 named mand and 1 naked woman as a team) are dropped off in a remote and harsh location and are given nothing except 1 item which they can bring along. They must surviive using nothing but those items and their cunning for 21 days. Give it a chance. I am hooked.
  • America's biggest deadbeat dad with 22 kids by 14 women to get his own reality show

    A man who fathered 22 kids by 14 different women - earning himself the title 'America's biggest deadbeat dad' - is to get his own reality TV show. It comes after unemployed Orlando Shaw, 33, was filmed boasting outside a Nashville courthouse following a child support hearing, 'the ladies don't like me, they love me.' The interview, recorded by Nashvilles NewsChannel, has since gone viral. It has been estimated that the state of Tennessee pays around $7,000 each month to help support Shaws children. He was filmed following a court hearing in which some of his former lovers - and...
  • Are Most Preachers Daughters Hot-to-Trot Lolitas?

    So I was looking over the wifes shoulder while she was watching Project Runway on Lifetime TV. During a commercial break, Lifetime aired a promo for a new show that debuts tonight. The promo begins with the familiar Aretha Franklin tune, I Say a Little Prayer, playing in the background. A young woman, looking like she works for some sort of escort service, is getting dressed. She oh-so-sexily applies her lipstick and mascara before teasingly stroking her hair. She surveys a rack of clothes before deciding upon a dress that looks very much like lingerie. She puts on a pair...

    Whenever the subject turns to the details of the federal budget, most citizens go into snooze mode. However, I have an idea for a reality show which in contrast to most reality shows which are either annoying (Kardashians) or laughable (Amish Mafia) would actually be performing a public service in terms of making the public aware of budget details as well as entertaining. Here is how the "OM WannaB" show would work. Four participants would be chosen from those who would want the power of the head of the Office of Management and Budget. Each of them would be given...
  • Exclusive: Allen West's upcoming reality show footage

    For many candidates, running for office may feel like a season of Survivor, the hit reality TV show where contestants build alliances and try to outwit, outplay and outlast one another for the big prize. But for South Floridas own conservative firebrand, U.S. Rep. Allen West, the comparison is less academic than, well, reality. The Republican congressman stepped off the campaign trail for a brief moment recently to participate in a Survivor-like reality TV show filmed in Palm Beach County.
