To be fair, at least ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel seems to regret the possibility of losing Republican voters, but he doesn’t care enough to change how he runs his show.
Last week, we told you that NBC’s late night host Seth Meyers explicitly directed his Trump supporting viewers to go away.
Now, we’re force to tell you that CBS doesn’t want your business either.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Kimmel explained that while losing Republican-leaning viewers wasn’t “ideal” he wouldn’t change just to appease keep them.
Tracy Smith: “So you don’t mind if Republicans turn off your show, they’re not watching anymore?”
Jimmy Kimmel: “I don’t say I don’t mind. I’d love for everyone — I want everyone with a television to watch the show, but if they’re so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably won’t want to have a conversation with them anyway.”
Tracy Smith: “Good Riddance?”
Jimmy Kimmel: “Well, not good riddance, but riddance.”
Look, it’s no as if we conservatives (or Republicans, or Trump supporters) are asking for the media world to passionately embrace President Trump and cheer him on as if he’s some kind of superhero.
What we’re asking is for our entertainment shows to be balanced enough in their “comedy” or in their editorializing that we don’t feel like we’re constantly under attack for our beliefs.
That’s it. That’s all.
Want to mock the President? Go ahead. It’d be nice if you could then mock the ancient, gaffe-prone leftists you support too. Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi… all of these people should be comedy gold. Let’s hear it.
Want to make a joke out of some policy that we agree with? Fine. How about you make fun of a leftist policy every now and again too? Liberals are banning soda and legalizing pot, they’re arguing that conservatives get out of their bodies while forcing us to pay for their healthcare, they’re calling for $15 minimum wages and then complaining when businesses fire people, they’re raising taxes and then whining when companies flee overseas. Are you telling me you can’t find something to mock on the left?
Sadly, it’s not just ABC and NBC that hate our politicians, hate what we believe, and in fact, hate us. It’s every major broadcast network and most of the leaders in trending pop culture. Comedy Central, MTV, CNN… the story is the same everywhere.
For example, watch as Jimmy Kimmel explains why he’s “a-political,” while simultaneously praising anti-Trumper Stephen Colbert and claiming that Trump’s moves are easy to mock, but too serious (as in bad) to be funny.
By the way, just a week or two ago Fallon had celebrities on his show to “thank” Hillary Clinton for everything she’s done.
If Fallon is the media’s example of being unbiased, no wonder they can’t figure out how to accurately report the news anymore.
