    Meghan Markle, an actress best known for her role on the USA network series Suits is now adding another role to her CV: deprogrammer. “Extracting a cult member is notoriously difficult, managing to do it after joining the cult itself is almost unheard of,” says cult expert Joanie Gorski. “This is one for the history books. Or at least several dozen podcasts.” The Cult of Windsor, which in its current form dates back to 1917, is known for being insular and territorial. Along with documented instances of incest and the grooming of teenage brides, accusations of pedophilia have also recently...
  • That's Rich: Jerry Springer Blames Trump for Decline in Civility

    pjmedia ^ | NOVEMBER 4, 2019 | TYLER O'NEIL
    On Friday, Jerry Springer — who made millions capitalizing on fights between family members on his decades-long NBC show after a scandal-plagued political career — blamed President Donald Trump for America's declining civility. "We can’t function as a society unless we have norms of how to behave," Springer told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle. He insisted that when political leaders "misbehave, when they say the norms don’t matter, when they say, 'You can use whatever language you want, anything you can get away with, get away with it. If you don’t pay taxes, you’re smart.' ... When they have this behavior,...

    The Brits call them "newsreaders." Their job is to sit behind a desk on a TV set and read the news -- ostensibly written by actual journalists, but also by the propagandists at the BBC -- off the teleprompter in a professional-sounding manner while looking reassuringly into the camera. In America we call them "anchors." Their job is to be the star of the show, to determine what goes on the air, to provide the desired slant to the news, and then at some point during the evening, to read the news off the teleprompter in a professional-sounding manner while...
  • Fox News Leads the Parade of Garbage Impeachment Polls

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) These impeachment polls are very mysterious and confusing. Until you look at the details, that is. – The increasingly-trending-left Fox News came out with a “bombshell” new poll on impeachment Wednesday which Bret Baier solemnly told us shows that 51% of those polled favor both impeachment and removal from office. Baier further said that is an increase of 9% over an earlier poll taken before any of this nonsense about Ukraine broke. Which basically means that every leftist nitwit in the country has always wanted him impeached and removed, which should surprise...

    Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino called out NBC News' Chuck Todd Monday over his heated debate with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. “Chuck Todd is a disgrace to humankind. How this guy pretends still to be a journalist to this day is still an embarrassment,” Bongino told “Fox & Friends,” taking issue with Todd accusing Johnson of pushing a "Fox News conspiracy" on the show.

    Newsbusters ^ | September 26, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Wow! The MSNBC host of Deadline: White House, Nicolle Wallace, declared President Trump to be a liar on Wednesday (how original) and used that as an excuse to cut away from the televised press conference almost 24 hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared the House's formal attempt to impeach the President. Perhaps Trump's truth telling about Joe and Hunter Biden was too much for her to tolerate. In any event, it was a stunning act of anti-journalism. Here was Nicolle cutting away from the Trump press conference because she has passed judgement that he wasn't being truthful...or was it...

    Variety ^ | September 23, 2019 | WILL THORNE
    Sunday night’s hostless Emmys on Fox was likely hoping to emulate the Oscars ratings success in cutting out an emcee. However, according to preliminary Nielsen figures, the 2019 Emmys have gone the way of seemingly all awards shows in declining year on year. Fox’s broadcast posted a 5.7 rating and a 10 share in the overnight metered market ratings, which is down 23% on last year’s Monday night show on NBC and 30% below the preliminary rating for the 2017 ceremony which also aired on a Sunday night on CBS. The total viewership for TV’s big night, as well as...

    CNN contributor Andrew McCabe is making waves at the cable news network after a U.S. attorney on Thursday recommended moving ahead with potential charges against the FBI honcho-turned-pundit. Some CNN staffers were reportedly aghast when the network hired McCabe in late August, simply because he'd been fired from the FBI for lying. Now that charges against McCabe are seemingly looming, some of the shock has turned to anger and confusion. A current CNN on-air personality told Fox News this week that "it erodes our journalistic credibility to have so many highly anti-Trump, former Obama DOJ/security officials without a semblance of...

    UPDATE September 4, 2019: This blog has been updated with the Nielsen ratings from the week of August 26. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Things are not at all well on CBS Evening News, the flagship evening program for the third-place broadcast network. After making the major transition from CBS This Morning anchor Norah O’Donnell has been floundering in the ratings fight with ABC and NBC by hemorrhaging viewers for the first six weeks, according to the Nielsen ratings. For all the talk about CBS News head Susan Zirinsky booting the more-balanced Jeff Glor (whose last newscast was May 10) under the guise of...

    President Donald Trump criticized Fox News on Wednesday for allowing professional Democrats to spread their message unchallenged. “The New Fox News is letting millions of GREAT people down!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!” The president ripped Fox News for allowing Democrats like former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile to spread her views on the network. He also accused anchors like Sandra Smith for failing to challenge them. “Just watched Fox News heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she...

    To say that a highly-publicized Taylor Swift appearance on Fox’s 2019 Teen Choice Awards failed to save the award show from a ratings catastrophe would be quite the understatement. After hitting a record low in the ratings last year, the Teen Choice Awards collapsed Sunday night with a 28 percent freefall in total viewers and an incredible 50 percent drop in younger viewers, aged 18-49. Hoping to boost the night’s ratings, left-wing diva Taylor Swift landed the inaugural Icon Award. But Swift’s cynical move to embrace divisive politics has obviously dented her mass appeal and, by extension, her popularity. In...

    The race-baiting Netflix series Dear White People has debuted its third season, and this year the show portrays supporters of President Donald Trump a racists and KKK members. In the season’s third episode, Chapter III, a family of Trump voters is being given a makeover by a group of gays in a parody of the Netflix series Queer Eye called the U.S. of Gay. The episode portrays the family as thoroughly low brow, slow-witted, and racist. They have Confederate flags posted around their home and property and have Trump signs in their yard. One member of the pro-Trump family —...

    The wildly-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, previously one of Hollywood’s last bastions of entertainment that stayed mostly above the political and cultural fray, dipped its toe in LGBT “representation” with April’s Avengers: Endgame, and is slated to introduce a lesbian subplot with the next sequel for one of the team’s founding superheroes, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Marvel Studios announced its next two years’ worth of films and streaming series this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, concluding with Thor: Love and Thunder in November 2021. The film will see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) continue as ruler of the titular hero’s surviving Asgardian...

    CNN's Reliable Sources, hosted by left-wing "media correspondent" Brian Stelter, is not having a good year -- it's average audience has fallen 42% since January. Between Jan. 6 and Jan. 27, 2019, Reliable Sources averaged 967,000 viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily broadcast data as reported by John Nolte at Breitbart News. But for June 16 to July 7, 2017, the data show that Reliable Sources' audience had fallen to an average of 557,000 viewers, an audience about the size of Albuquerque, New Mexico. That audience size is also about half the number of prostitutes in the United States, which is estimated...

    CNN and MSNBC have said the word "racist" more than 630 times since Sunday, according to a tally conducted by Grabien Media, an online media production and news prep service. The count, which doesn't include on-screen graphics commonly known as chyrons, comes two days after President Trump in a Sunday tweet said four Democratic congresswomen — all U.S. citizens and members of minority groups — should "go back" to their home countries. Just one of the four Democrats was not born in the United States, and Trump's remarks have been called out as racist by much of the Democratic Party...

    The Washington Times ^ | July 4, 2019 | Jennifer Harper
    Sunday morning political talk shows have some surprising heritage. It is interesting to note, for example, that NBC’s “Meet the Press” is the nation’s longest running television show, debuting as a half-hour program on Nov. 6, 1947, with serious topics and notable guests — back in the days when anchors spoke in the voice of doom, with an intense demeanor. CBS’s “Face the Nation” went on the air seven years later in 1954, while ABC’s “This Week” debuted in 1981. So between the three of them, the shows have been on the air for 175 years. Sunday talk, however, appears...

    So right now the people at the Today Show are doing a long salute to homosexuals. They're calling it "coming out" day, and it appears to consist of people proclaiming their sexual preferences. I guess the excuse is that this is the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
