Wanting the state to silence one's adversaries is pervasive across time and culture -- that's why the 1st Am banned it -- but until recently, people were embarrassed to explicitly advocate it. But in US liberal culture, censorship is now so normalized that this is no longer odd: https://t.co/UBtyY7jt92 — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 9, 2022 Not long after Judd Apatow tweeted his support for censorship of Fox News, he deleted the message. Apatow, without comment, has now deleted his pro-censorship tweet. Here it is, along with a representative approving reply from blue-check liberals: pic.twitter.com/hXdIWRKv9J — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 9, 2022 original post (screenshot before Judd Apatow deleted his tweet)
I enjoyed chatting on WHAS Radio with ABC News reporter Steve Roberts, the widower of NPR and ABC News icon Cokie Roberts. She was a trailblazer in broadcasting, raised in the powerful political family of Lindy & Hale Boggs. Her political insights grew from being deeply entrenched in Washington life from her preteen years forward. She died two years ago and Steve has written a book to honor her incredible legacy. Steve says writing and talking about his wife keeps her spirit alive for future generations to enjoy. We discussed Cokie's influencer status for women in media, her personal life, and Steve's affinity for his mother-in-law. AUDIO We never got around to discussing Cokie's tombstone, but as you see below, it opens up a
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joined me on WHAS Radio for a wide ranging conversation about the Biden Administration's stimulus packages, infrastructure proposals, COVID vaccine access, moving the MLB all-star game over woke politics, and the senate seesaw of having moderate Democrat Joe Manchin voting often with Republicans. .@terrymeiners says @LeaderMcConnell might consider himself still majority leader given how much @Sen_JoeManchin sides with the #GOP. McConnell says he appreciates Machin’s open-mindedness, saying @JoeBiden is leading an “audacious” left-wing administration. #KYSen #Biden — Philmonger (@phillipmbailey) April 6, 2021 Only once did the Senate Minority Leader cut me off while blurting "LET ME FINISH!" That's a new over/under record! Wide ranging interview with @LeaderMcConnell on whether @JoeBiden has ghosted him, if McConnell is still majority leader b/c
It is amazing how many people think that they can answer an argument by attributing bad motives to those who disagree with them. Using this kind of reasoning, you can believe or not believe anything about anything, without having to bother to deal with facts or logic.— Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) February 15, 2021 People who thrive on their identity as Blue Democrats and Red Republicans hate each other in today's acerbic political arena. No one seems to be able to converse without the subject devolving into politics. Then - POOF! - people move back to their comfortable echo chambers. The film Irresistible is a masterful takedown of our cultural logjam. It's a brilliant piece of film. Amazingly, liberal Jon Stewart produced a
Looking forward to joining @TerryMeiners today on @840WHAS in #Kentucky to discuss the news of the day. Tune in live at 4:05 ET today: https://t.co/TKlXiZ1ism — Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) August 8, 2019 Of all the interaction I've had with various luminaries over the years, no one creates more blowback than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The comments are WOW!
Damn, Don. pic.twitter.com/7WJXuV8tn4— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) May 4, 2020 Here's another #FeelTheBern from Don Lemon on CNN. It follows comments by President Donald Trump blaming his predecessor President Barack Obama for feckless leadership during a smaller pandemic 12 years ago. Lemon, who is black and gay, throws every fireball he can at the sitting president. 🔥 Donald Trump usually reacts to Lemon's media slams. This one is from January following Don Lemon's CNN guests mocking Trump fans as "credulous boomer rubes" with thick southern accents who can't read maps or string together complete sentences. Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!). https://t.co/iQXCc7lvCt— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2020 Meanwhile, Trump's campaign released a new ad today highlighting the
It's been exactly three years since President Donald Trump's top confidant Kellyanne Conway jumped on the radio with me and the electricity was evident. Here's the audio link. Now that we are into the 2020 election season, has the daily drama slowed? Kellyanne didn't like me pointing out that most Americans just want to live their daily lives without governmental drama from loud, abrasive tweets and verbal jousts. Let's see how the rest of the campaign plays out. One thing is for sure, Americans miss the placid days before Twitter turned people into electronic snipers.
Ricky Gervais is a fearless comedian who rips into Hollywood arrogance like no other. His most recent hosting job at the 2020 Golden Globes was close to brilliant in that it upsets just about everyone, a rarity in today's culture of snowflake sensitivity. Self-important, politically condescending, private jet flying, hypocritical Hollywood elites had to sit stone faced on a live NBC broadcast and quiver as Gervais scanned the room, methodically lancing the oversized egos of these pampered crybabies. It was gorgeous. God Bless the blunt truth telling of Ricky Gervais. That's a joke, of course, because Ricky Gervais is an avowed atheist. For Hollywood elites, Gervais's mockery of religion is his only saving grace. (That's another religion joke, BTW). The Apple
Get down with RBG Yeah, you know me! Jim Bunning died in 2017 at the age of 85, one year younger than Ruth Bader Ginsburg is today.
After a surprisingly close primary win for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, I asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell if he would offer support for Bevin's re-election in the November general election. McConnell and Bevin have a complicated relationship stemming back to Bevin's campaign to unseat McConnell in 2014. The McConnell team labeled their opponent Bailout Bevin, calling him a con man and liar. Today on WHAS Radio, Senator McConnell promised to fully support Bevin's re-election. Kentucky's senior senator also touted attorney general candidate Daniel Cameron, a former McConnell staffer. Kentucky has not had a Republican attorney general since the 1940s. 📻 @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell on helping @GovMattBevin win in November, acrimony between @realDonaldTrump & @SpeakerPelosi, value of impeachment for @GOP, and raising cigs
