CNN anchors Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin have taken offense at the word “mob” being used to describe angry protesters who harass public figures and shut down guests who dare to label demonstrators as such.
CNN famously aired the uncensored version of the word “s—hole” 195 times in one day, and has devoted countless hours of coverage to porn star Stormy Daniels and her attorney – often using graphic terms to describe sexual encounters. But the word “mob” apparently crosses a line for Jeff Zucker’s network. [Read More]
This month, the drama “Butterfly” will air in the United Kingdom on ITV, about a boy deciding that he needs to live as a girl. Interviewed for YOU Magazine about her role in the show, actress Anna Friel said, “Imagine how confusing it must be to get to the age of four and realise you’re a boy but you like girls’ dresses; being told that you’re not to do this or that, but you have this desperate need. And imagine how many people must have gone through that before transgender was something we talked about openly.”
As if being a girl is liking dresses. Girls don’t always like dresses, and some of us strongly dislike them. If liking dresses is enough to make a boy “really” a girl, is disliking them enough to make a girl “really” a boy? At what age should such an interest be counted as life-determining? [Read More]
The midterm elections are fast approaching and voters who rely on broadcast networks for their news coverage are seeing an overwhelming amount of negative news related to President Trump, according to a new study.
The Media Research Center analyzed 1,007 evening newscasts that aired on ABC, NBC and CBS from June 1 to September 30. The results show that a whopping 92 percent of Trump-related coverage was negative, compared to only eight percent that was positive as the economic boom was largely ignored.
The MRC findings show that nearly two-thirds of coverage on ABC’s “World News Tonight,” NBC’s “Nightly News” and CBS’ “Evening News” was about one of five topics. The areas of focus on what the MRC called “TV’s Trump-bashing agenda” were the Russia investigation, immigration, Brett Kavanaugh, North Korea diplomacy and U.S. relations with Russia. But the broadcast networks don’t exactly focus on the positive aspects of these polarizing topics. [Read More]
Hurricane Michael made landfall as a catastrophic, unprecedented Category 4 hurricane on the Florida Panhandle early Wednesday afternoon. Life-threatening storm surge and 100-plus-mph winds are expected not just near the coast, but also inland, which could leave some areas without power for over a week.
Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida, around 12:30 p.m. CDT Wednesday with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph and a minimum central pressure of 919 millibars. [Read More]
The city of Chesapeake, Virginia, is attempting to keep the “trick” part of trick-or-treating to a minimum by threatening jail time for Halloween troublemakers over 12 years old. However, the city says it won’t be “actively seeking out violations.”
The city’s ordinance code states if anyone over 12 years of age participates in “trick or treat” or any similar activity, “he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.”
Chesapeake officials offer a bit more clarity to the seemingly harsh rule for older kids looking to dress up and join in on the fun.
“Chesapeake Police staff will focus on making sure the evening is safe for everyone,” the city’s website says, explaining that a 13-year-old “safely trick or treating with a younger sibling is not going to have any issues.” [Read More]
