LIBERAL BIAS: NBC Apologizes & Deletes Oprah ‘Our Future President’ Tweet



(Via Zerohedge)

As reported earlier, during the Golden Globes ceremony last night, NBC raised many eyebrows when it controversially tweeted “Nothing but respect for OUR future president” with a photo of Oprah Winfrey.

NBC tweeted the above to its 1.77 million followers after Golden Globes host Seth Meyers jokingly forbade Winfrey from running for president, noting he did the same with Donald Trump in 2011.

The tweet also prompted the now standard speculation about media bias and partiality.

Then moments ago, instead of perpetuating the debate over just what NBC’s intention was with the tweet, and unwilling to engage in a twitter war with Trump, NBC decided to simply apologize and be done with it, stating that the tweet was sent by a “third party agency”, was “not meant to be a political statement” and that it has since deleted it:

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. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet.

Separately, as the debate over whether Oprah is running in 2020 rages, CNN reported that two of Oprah Winfrey’s close friends said that that the billionaire entertainment magnate is “actively thinking” about running for president in 2020. Some of Winfrey’s confidants have been privately urging her to run, but that she has not yet made up her mind, CNN reported.

In her Sunday night speech, Winfrey said that Hollywood needed to crack down on sexual harassment in the wake of revelations about several powerful Hollywood figures.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up!” Winfrey said as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.

Winfrey’s speech earned widespread praise, with the hashtag #Oprah2020 quickly picking up steam on social media. However, as we noted earlier, in an interview after the show, Winfrey, 63, said she does not have plans to run for president.

Still, Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told The Los Angeles that a campaign isn’t out of the question.

“It’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it,” he said.

Actress Meryl Streep told The Washington Post that Winfrey “doesn’t have a choice” but to declare a presidential run in the wake of her speech. “I want her to run for president,” Streep said.

OCD: Conservatives Suffer From Ocasio-Cortez Disorder



What was the #1 mistake the media made in the 2016 election?

In the past, the mainstream media ignored anti-establishment candidates it disliked.  Slowly, but surely, their poll numbers would fall.  Yet they couldn’t help themselves when Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015… and they covered him all the way to victory.

Now, Conservatives begin to make the same mistake:  memeing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like the world is going to end in 12 years.  It would be fine if AOC memes weren’t so juvenile, shit-tier, & flat out not funny.

They fall into a category called “Boomer memes.” It’s a term that pokes fun at the “2nd Greatest Generation” for not being particularly tech savvy, but it’s used here to describe low quality content:  Think fuzzy/irrelevant pictures, generic fonts, usually too much text, and toilet humor.  They might as well call her a “poo-poo” head, because they aren’t changing minds.

Note: The “Boomer” meme

You cannot scroll down your Facebook timeline without seeing her face on one of these perversions posing as “memes.”

Like an ex-girlfriend, she wants your attention.  She wants you to call her back.  She wants you to hate on her.  It fuels her.  You’re essentially working public relations for the DSA Party when you continue to post about her.

“I need you to hate/So I can use you for your energy”

You may think you’re doing some kind of public service calling out her stupidity.  In reality, you’re pushing the disenfranchised right into her arms.   Like an ex-girlfirend, the best thing you can do is be indifferent to her existence.  The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference… and drives women crazy.    Hanging on her every word and blunder is what the media did to Trump, and it skyrocketed his campaign at every turn.  Think “Grab her by the p*ssy.”

Stop memeing Cortez unless you’re going to do it intelligently.

And if you think she can’t be president, you weren’t paying attention during 2016.

P.S.  Notice I didn’t use her image once.  I did this even though I knew posting it would have given me 100s, if not 1000s of likes.  Don’t be a slave to AOC.  She IS your boss if you meme her.  You don’t work for her.  And neither do we.
