Pro-Trump ‘Roseanne’ Brings in Big Ratings, But Now ABC Wants to Make Major Change

When will Hollywood ever learn?

The entertainment industry has become an absolute cesspool filled to the brim with nutty leftist propaganda where anyone who thinks differently is silenced and blacklisted, booted from Hollywood without a second thought.

To say that conservative audiences are underserved when it comes to quality television and film is an understatement of epic proportions. Hollywood seemingly doesn’t think there’s a lot of folk out there who would be interested in seeing people with traditional values represented in their shows, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

The huge popularity and success of ABC’s “Last Man Standing” — which was cancelled but has been moved to Fox — and the reboot of “Roseanne” have proven this theory to be absolute hogwash.

Roseanne Barr, an ardent Trump supporter, has not shied away from showcasing her support for the president as the title character in her show, and audiences loved it. The show drew in a record setting number of viewers and clearly proved that this particular demographic is hungry for representation.

You’d think major networks would get the point and start looking in fairly representing people on both sides of the political spectrum, but instead, they’re now wanting “Roseanne” to get away from politics.

Despite delivering record-breaking ratings — 25 million people watched the season premiere — and tons of positive media coverage for ABC, the pro-Trump slant of the “Roseanne” re-boot has proved too much for network executives, who have requested the show tone down its politics for season two.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey told reporters this week they are pushing the show away from politics and toward a family-centered program.

“I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family,” she said, according to TheWrap.

“I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with ‘Roseanne’ on the air is that it is focusing a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air,” she added.

When will these ignorant Hollywood executives finally get the picture? You’d think money, which is a huge motivating factor in the entertainment industry, would be the language these people speak, as these popular shows can bring in a ton of bank for the network.

It should be a matter of principle to want to have programming that speaks to people of varying backgrounds, but alas, principle is something in short supply in the country right now.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
