CNN IS IN FULL DAMAGE CONTROL CNN GOES ON RAMPAGE

>>119495456 This is the situation. We live in postmodern times. There are people in our country who are civilized and there are people who are really fucking stupid and probably should be social Darwined out of the gene pool. Then, there are dark overlord capitalists. The civilized people, a coalition of progressives, Democrats, RINOs, coastal creatives, showering an-caps and a few old money conservatives would have already created a civilized society by now, if it weren’t for the dark capitalists manipulating stupid people and peeling off gullible people from the…

The danger of assuming universal and singular narrative explanations of disability

In a recent article appearing on the CNN website, author Wayne Drash reviews the concept of ‘wrongful birth’ in context of Lesli, a person who has developmental disabilities. Drash’s profile states that he “specializes in stories off the radar” and that “his passion is to tell narratives about life and the unfolding drama of the world we live in.” It would be more accurate to state that Drash cherry picked one person’s perspective and advanced a fiction that serves one ideological perspective. His initial description of Lesli in his opening…

Chelsea Clinton’s Lead Trial Balloon

Chelsea Clinton and I have quite a few things in common. For instance, we both live in New York City (albeit in not-so-comparable digs ). We both have appeared on NBC-family news programming, though her per-minute rate is roughly $26,724 higher than mine . And we both have had critical things to say about Donald Trump, though I’m not friends with the family . Yet somehow I’m never impelled to issue wink-wink nudge-nudge denials about, you know, RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. “I clearly don’t agree with our President but I’m not…

Trump Supporters Furious The Border Wall Will Put Their Houses On The Mexico Side

In a case of catastrophic cognitive dissonance, some Trump supporters in Texas have finally realized their vote for the president may force some of them out of their homes for less than they are worth. While others have discovered they will be living on the Mexico side of the wall. As part of a CNN special report on the impact the wall between the U.S. and Mexico will have on border dwellers in the state that went overwhelmingly for President Donald Trump, the network found there is already an extensive…

James S. Brady Press Briefing Room 11:45 A.M. EDT MR. SPICER: I know the President is leaving shortly, so I’m going to keep this relatively short. A couple things from yesterday. The President signed four bills: S.J.

Comedy Central Sets ‘Daily Show’ Spinoff Starring Jordan Klepper

Larry Wilmore got a raw deal. The Nightly Show was really good and deserved more time to reach its audience. I learned more from the voices he had on than I would from a 10-person shouting match on CNN. OTOH, only a matter of time until somebody gave Jordan Klepper a show. It’s a blessing and a curse that TDS has been such a proving ground for great comedic talents, because they keep having to restock when John Oliver gets a show, Samantha Bee gets a show, Jason Jones gets…
