    The Olive Branch Report ^ | 11/17/2018 | S. Noble
    Channing Dungey, the ABC Entertainment president who made the bold decision to yank Roseanne after its star made a racist tweet, has resigned her post. Sounds like the rumors that ABC regrets their hasty decision to drop Roseanne. It was a bold and idiotic decision. The Connors, the replacement for Roseanne has dropped double digits and two stars — John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf — have allegedly been asked to take big pay cuts. Revenues for advertising are also sinking. As for Dungey, Entertainment says: It was Dungey who announced the cancellation of Roseanne after Roseanne Barr posted a racist...

    That’s an article from 13 years ago, at a critical moment in the history of broadcasting. Yes, the American Cinema Foundation was hosting a big Hollywood event, a national online conversation about the future of PBS, sponsored by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Yes, the American Cinema Foundation was well known as a group of Hollywood conservatives. The irony of that title is that what keynote speaker Rob Long demanded wasn’t a seat at the PBS table at all. He wanted it ended, but in the nicest, wittiest, most reasonable way. For weeks, the “blob” of employees and administrators of...
  • 'A sword hanging over our heads': Trump discovers new weapon against media

    The Politico ^ | November 16, 2018 | Jason Schwartz and Gabby Orr
    The administration is drawing up rules for White House reporters' behavior, and the president said if journalists don't follow them, 'we'll end up back in court, and we'll win.' CNN and Jim Acosta may have won their battle with the White House in court on Friday, but President Donald Trump has found a new weapon in his long war against the media. After a judge ruled that the White House violated the CNN correspondent’s right to due process by stripping him of his press badge, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that the administration was drawing up new rules to...

    Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning to defend Democrat Stacey Abrams’ refusal to concede the race for governor in Georgia and hurl accusations of voter suppression against Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo touted support from disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather and MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough. . . "GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."

    You’ve likely seen him on social media, and now, the famous 11-year-old drag queen is gracing the airwaves of popular daytime television show “Good Morning America.” In yet another indication that cross-dressing and the LGBT lifestyle are beyond normalized in our culture, “Desmond is Amazing,” was a guest on the long-running ABC morning show, where he was surprised by some of America’s most famous drag queens.

    The Hill ^ | November 14, 2018 | Jordan Fabian
    President Trump on Wednesday expressed hope the White House would defeat CNN in a lawsuit over his decision to suspend the press credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, whom he called “bad for the country.” In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump railed against Acosta, calling him a “rude” person whose “grandstanding” is unfair to the broader White House press corps. “I really think that when you have guys like Acosta, I think they’re bad for the country,” Trump told the conservative website. “He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.”...

    The Jew-hating left is at it again, this time rejoicing that actor Gerard Butler lost his house in the California wildfires all because he supports Israel. Butler lost his Malibu home during the several wild fires ripping though California this month and posted a photo of the charred mess on Twitter, Daily Caller said. The 300 star narrated a “tour” of his former home in the video posted to his social media accounts.

    Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats). And no wonder. Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists...

    It seemed like things were going to quiet down in Gaza last week with the delivery of 15 million dollars in cash from Qatar in multiple suitcases. The "payoff" money was designed to pacify Gaza and help calm things down between Israel and the militant group Hamas which has maintained steady pressure on Israel with everything from occasional rocket barrages to constant incendiary kites to mass protests at the border fences forcing Israeli snipers to open fire. But suddenly on Sunday night all hell broke loose. IDF soliders were operating inside Gaza using civilian vehicles backed by air support, tanks...

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ^ | October 29, 2018 | Richard Greene
    Where better than Texas for President Trump to give the national media and liberal politicians more fodder to declare their disdain for him? While the overflow Houston crowd last Monday were chanting “USA-USA-USA” when he again proudly announced himself as a “nationalist,” the cable news talking heads and Democrats sounded familiar refrains of “racist” and “Nazi” in hopes of convincing voters to fear him. With his popularity exceeding that of his predecessor at this point in his presidency, it’s not working. The fundamental problem with those in the grips of Trump Derangement Syndrome is, they do not understand him. Nor...

    This week, CNN's Jim Acosta lost his White House press pass. The events leading up to this began with his abuse of the press conference's opportunity to question President Trump live in front of multimedia. Given an opportunity to ask a question Acosta launched into a lecture about how the caravan from Guatemala was not an invasion. Trump attempted to agree to disagree, but Acosta persisted in berating him. Having gone way past a reasonable time with the microphone, Trump asked Acosta to let another member of the media have a turn. Acosta continued to rant and an intern attempted...

    Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.” Host Anderson Cooper welcomed Acosta on as the two sat inside CNN’s D.C. bureau and so Acosta first gave his account of when he tried to return to the White House grounds for a live shot slated for this same...

    Bob Dylan's Life Work Being Scrutinized (Update) For the last five and a half decades Bob Dylan has been touted as a cultural phenomenon unparalleled to anyone. Within English speaking countries the word culture has long been synonymous with the name Bob Dylan. There are many interpretations of the definition of the word culture. One definition describes culture as "the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively." When referencing this definition with regard to the public's perception of Bob Dylan, we learn that Bob Dylan is the most revered celebrity on the planet by the intellectual community....

If you've done any of this you're a John Wick fan. Youtuber Corridor Digital did a three minutes of awesomeness a while back, substituting NERF guns for the real deal,...

    The View began their show Monday by addressing the Saturday Night Live controversy where comedian Pete Davidson mocked a wounded veteran who also happened to be a Republican running in an upcoming midterm election. . . “He was making fun of people. He's not a comedian trying to get a laugh,” she retorted. After Huntsman argued again that jokes about veterans were unacceptable, Behar gushed, “What else is on the list? Of not making fun of anybody? Who else is on the list?” Whoopi then cut to commercial.

    CNN’s Don Lemon believes that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men” — and he’s not sure why there isn’t a travel ban in place as a result. Lemon made the remarks to fellow network anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night, in reference to pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats and the Pittsburgh synagogue mass killing. Lemon also pointed to the Kentucky grocery store murders last week, in which a white man gunned down two black individuals. The crime is also being investigated as a hate crime. Lemon explained that it’s time to sit down and examine...

Buzzfeed tried their hands on gun shooting, they did ok (you can read about it below). Fast Forward to Now The Firearm Blog had heard what the Buzzfeed guys did so TFB decides, why not us?, But the differences is that TFB also wanted to create some shooting tips segments from Da Man himself "Taran Butler". So TFB flew down to L.A. to meet with Taran Butler...

    As the administration sends 5,200 troops to the border, the host painted GOP rhetoric as midterm election fearmongering. The GOP-fueled hysteria over the Central American migrant caravan traveling north through Mexico is nothing more than midterm election hyperbole, Fox News host Shep Smith insisted Monday. “There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There’s nothing at all to worry about,” he said calmly on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Monday. “But tomorrow is one week before the midterm election — which is what all of this all about,” he added. Smith tried to calm the public about the caravan...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 28 Oct 2018 | John Semmens
    President Trump’s assertion that he is a “nationalist” inspired CNN reporter Jim Acosta to characterize him as a “white nationalist.” Trump’s remarks were in the context of trying to differentiate his views from those of a globalist, who he argued “is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much. I’m a nationalist. I want what’s good for America.” In what Acosta hoped would be a “gotcha moment” at a White House meeting for the press, he pointed out to the President that “saying you’re a nationalist combined with the fact that...
