How bad is media bias on the subject of Colin Kaepernick? It's so bad that a newspaper writer is now boycotting the NFL because the controversial quarterback doesn't have a job. It's just another day in the life of New York Daily News senior justice writer and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King.

According to The Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood, pro-life Texan legislators are forcing women into a “form of slavery” by limiting abortion access.

Season two of the 1970s cartoon, F is for Family, was released Tuesday, May 30 on Netflix and, while it had its funny moments and nostalgic memories, especially for this child of the '70s, it also had plenty of horrifically offensive moments for Christians. Created by Michael Price (The Simpsons) and comedian Bill Burr and produced by actors Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley (Ralphie in A Christmas Story), the series centers around the animated Murphy family, headed by parents Frank (voiced by Bill Burr) and Sue (Laura Dern).

Al Franken, the so-called ‘Giant of the Senate,’ can’t be seen with Bill Maher. It might ruin his public persona. The senator for Minnesota cancelled his Friday appearance amid the scandal surrounding the HBO star’s use of the n word that occurred while Republican Senator Ben Sasse was on his show. Does Franken think the same thing will happen to him?

There’s probably nobody to root for in the sudden diplomatic standoff between Qatar and the rest of the Arab Middle East. Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the rest are accusing Qatar of supporting terror. In other news, the pot had some interesting things to say about the kettle. But something good can come out of the situation: buh-bye Beheading Channel.

As one of the most iconic moments in American history, D-day always gets media commemoration. But here’s something that many mainstream outlets won’t highlight: former president and liberal darling Franklin Roosevelt firmly believed that God guided the U.S. in its dark hour in order to preserve “our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.”


VH1 premiered its new scripted series Daytime Divas on Monday, June 6, with lots of drama, catfighting, and controversy.

With their much hoped-for Seattle Seahawks-Colin Kaepernick dream team now reduced to dust in the wind, many in the left-stream sports media are crying unsportsmanlike conduct and some say he has a right to be on an NFL team.


Showtime’s new comedy I’m Dying Up Here premiered on Sunday, June 4. The show, produced by Jim Carrey, centers around a group of up and coming comics trying to become successful in the 1970s.

He encourages all the men to cheer, saying, "That's a big win for us, too."


These days, politics is always in fashion. At tonight’s Council of Fashion Designers (CFDA) Gala, there’ll be talk of both pleats and protests, raglan and resistance. The event – usually tame on the political front – will this year highlight radical feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and actress and Black Lives Matter supporter Janelle Monae.


Both Refinery29 and The Leftovers creator Damon Lindelof want a very specific addition to the television industry in order to solve the problem of female objectification. They want to “normalize male nudity on television,” according to Lindelof.

 

Refinery29 writer Britni de la Cretaz defended the statement made by saying that this addition would lead to “less objectifying nude images of women, and more positive visuals overall.” However, it is not clear how showing more and more images of naked men would enhance respect for women. In addition, part of this appeal seems to involve a call for more depictions of gay sex on television, which would evidently enhance the quality of entertainment offered to the American public.
