Bozell & Graham Column: Diversity Reigns at Oscars, Tantrums Continue

Posted on 28 February 2019

It’s amazing that ABC broadcast an overlong Academy Awards show where no one mocked Donald Trump by name. There were just a few snarky remarks about walls, but that’s pretty much it. But it’s equally bizarre that the Oscar for Best Picture went to Green Book – about overcoming segregation in the south – and the leftists came away angry! What makes this amusing as well as amazing is Hollywood votes on these.

Oh, Suddenly MSNBC Is Concerned With Executive Overreach?

Posted on 22 February 2019

Suddenly, the journalists at MSNBC are concerned with executive overreach. Liberal reporters didn’t care much during the Obama years, but now that Donald Trump has declared a national emergency, MSNBC is concerned. Reporting on news that Democrats will try and stop it, correspondent Garrett Haake goaded, “How many Republicans come out and get on this resolution? After as much Republicans have talked about executive overreach in the Obama presidency, how will they react now? When this thing moves over to the Senate, that’s the same question we’re seeing one more time there…

Posted on 22 February 2019

After going through a lot of effort pointing out how the Donald Trump 2016 campaign could have colluded with the Russians, Cillizza concludes that there is no proof that such collusion took place. Case closed.

Gabrielle Giffords. Kelly and Giffords became prominent gun-control advocates after she survived an assassination attempt in 2011. Kornheiser wished Happy 55th Birthday to Kelly and his twin brother Scott, then added: “Mark Kelly is…

Off a Cliff: Democratic Virginia Scandals Evaporate from ABC, CBS, NBC

Posted on 22 February 2019

Despite the fact that there has been no resolution to any of the scandals surrounding the three Democrats who sit atop Virginia’s government, ABC, CBS and NBC have essentially dropped the stories from their flagship newscasts.
