As if there weren’t enough reasons to send the mainstream media out to pasture in the Trump era, NBC just threw what little credibility they had right out the window.
Hollywood is in trouble. Their long history of looking the other way when sexual predators rise to the top of their ranks are now over as Tinseltown’s most prominent producer, Harvey Weinstein, stands accused of over ninety counts of sexual misconduct. The allegations range from simple sexual harassment to rape, with a disturbing threat tying many of the stories together: Weinstein’s willingness to bribe young actresses with undeliverable rewards in return for sexual favors.
One of the most egregious of these allegations comes from a British actress named Kadian Noble, who met Weinstein at a party in France just three years ago. During their meeting, Weinstein had a particularly notable piece of arm candy galavanting around the room with him: Oprah Winfrey.
Later that night, Noble was raped by Weinstein, after being lured into a false sense of security based on the producer’s close ties to Winfrey, herself a feminist icon.

Now, with Hollywood in utter shambles, last night’s Golden Globes award show needed an enormous moment of solidarity to right the southern California showbiz ship. Who did they turn to in their time of need?
None other than Weinstein pal Oprah Winfrey, who made a mad-lib style speech filled with leftist keywords as some sort of placation for the inexcusable behavior of her good buddy. By all means, Hollywood believes that we should now forget about Weinstein and the predators he inspired.
Furthermore, NBC news made one horrendously biased tweet later in the night claiming that Oprah Winfrey was “our next President”. The backlash to this absurd departure from Journalism has been swift, and NBC has been forced to remove the offending tweet.
“The network claimed the tweet was sent out by a ‘third party agency,’ and that it was ‘not meant to be a political statement.’
“’Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC entertainment in real time during the broadcast,’ NBC said in a tweet Monday.”
This non-explanation wasn’t nearly enough for many observers, who believe that the “third party” excuse is flimsy at best, phony at worst. Even the President’s son was forced to take a stance on the issue, with Donald Trump Junior tweeting, “In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrumpis now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it. Can you trust anything they say at this point?”
While it would take a determined cave dweller to still believe that the mainstream media has any unbiased bones in their body these days, this tweet by NBC is far beyond any of the previous jabs that we’ve seen directed at the President by a major network. This is just another signal of the radicalization of the left, who have recently turned to violence and hatred in order to attack our nation’s conservatives.
