An article about Megyn Kelly to read

As it’s such a nice day, I’m going to take a walk for an hour—retired people can do that—but I’ll return soon with an article on a giant ten-pound fossil frog that might have eaten theropod dinosaurs. In the meantime, read the article below (click on screenshot), which is not written by a conservative but […]

CNN cancels Reza Aslan’s t.v. documentary, “Believer”, but for bad reasons

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Reza Aslan. I dislike his apologetics for and whitewashing of Islam, his osculation of all faiths and false claim that, at bottom, they’re all the same, and his flaunting of his  bogus credentials that he’s a “religious scholar.” His CNN show about religion, “Believer,” which I’ve […]

Ice cream sex from “Bill Nye Saves the World”

No comment needed, except this may be from the same show that featured “My vagina has its own voice“. You can judge whether it’s appropriate for the show. p.s. I don’t really understand what this is about; maybe I’m dim. But i’m pretty sure it doesn’t have much to do with science.

Planet Earth II comes to the USA

by Matthew Cobb Readers may remember that in the autumn, we sang the praises of the BBC’s Planet Earth II series, narrated by David Attenborough. It is quite extraordinary. Tonight it comes to BBC America, so US readers will be able to watch it: Hey USA, #PlanetEarth2 launches today on @BBCAMERICA at 9/8c – pic.twitter.com/KRgFZxo2Xs […]

HuffPo: Showing Muslim terrorists on t.v. dramas is “Islamophobic”

PuffHo has a new editor to replace Arianna, but the beat goes on, and that clickbait cesspool is still doing what it does best: risible left-wing outrage. Here’s a headline from today’s entertainment section (click on screenshot if you must); “24: Legacy” is a spinoff of the “24” television drama, in which each episode depicted 24 hours in the […]

National Geographic’s “The Story of God”: back for another season

As I’ve documented repeatedly, since Rupert Murdoch took over National Geographic, the magazine and its spinoffs have become increasingly oriented toward religion—and in a friendly way. Last summer Morgan Freeman hosted a National Geographic series called “The Story of God”; here are its six episodes.  Now, according to PuffHo, there’s a second season in the offing, with the first episode […]

Reza Aslan produces a t.v. series osculating Islam

The unctuous Reza Aslan, who is making a fine living whitewashing Islam while lying about his credentials and the nature of his faith (see at 2:10 in the video below), has made a video promoting a new television series of which he’s co-producer, “The Secret Life of Muslims”. The show was announced on the Vox Facebook Page like […]

The BBC’s comedy clip: “Real Housewives of ISIS”

The media has been criticized for going easy on Muslims, and even ISIS, but at least the BBC has a sense of humor about them. As The Independent and Metro report, on Tuesday the BBC 2 screened the clip below as part of the comedy show “Revolting”. But the clip has caused outrage among many people […]

America’s cultural divide as evidenced by television viewers

The New York Times gave graphic results of a survey (using Facebook and ZIP codes) of how popular an array of 50 U.S. television shows were in different areas of the U.S. The results are more or less as you expect, and display a cultural divide manifested largely by geography. For example, here’s the popularity of “Duck […]

PuffHo: No Muslims should be portrayed as terrorists on television

It would clearly be bigoted, on a TV show about terrorism, to portray only Islamic terrorists. But it would also be tendentious to neglect Muslims on a show about terrorism, pretending that Islamic terrorism simply doesn’t exist. Yet PuffHo (of course) is applauding such a show in its new article: “Here’s why you’ll never see a Muslim terrorist […]
