“Live PD” has been pulled by the A&E network. The show was a hit, revealing an unspeakable truth: that cops are human. Maybe that’s why it was canceled, for showing the police as hardworking folks facing unpredictable and sometimes dangerous circumstances. And because that didn’t fit the current narrative, it got pulled. And this reveals that the real censorship doesn’t arrive via autocracy, but via the emasculation of network execs. Here’s an idea: replace “Live PD” with a show called “No PD.” Just show crimes committed without cops around. So will “Live PD” come back? Not when the media see police as somehow worse than criminals. And the crime of “Live PD” is showing the reality of policing ignored by other networks, where cops are either relentlessly heroic or horrifyingly bad. And so A&E cancels the show. Censorship out of fear. Do you know up to that up to 440,000 Americans die each year from preventable hospital errors? That’s the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. Shall we cancel “Grey’s Anatomy?” And cancel all those other hospital programs that show health care workers in an aspirational glow? And I say all of this knowing full well that “Live PD” was competition for my show Saturday nights. “Live PD” put up great numbers on Saturdays. I should be thrilled it got knocked out of the lineup. I could be No. 1. But that would be stupid and wrong. Because I may not be No. 1. I may be next.
Yeah… No kidding.. For over 20 years, the liberals have been trying to figure a way to censor Rush Limbaugh on AM radio. As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it. That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue (otherwise known as a “Gregologue”) on Thursday, June 11, 2020.
“The Five” co-host Dana Perino voiced her displeasure Thursday with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after he announced that health care workers from around the country who traveled to his state to help fight the coronavirus pandemic would have to pay income taxes on money earned there. “I remember when the governor made this plea and he said, ‘Please, if you come to New York — we need additional workers, health care workers, nurses, doctors, please come to New York.’ And so many people answered the call,” Perino said. “And now he says, ‘Thank you for coming … You’re going to actually have to pay taxes on what we are paying you.’ “They’re getting paid. But it wasn’t easy to come to New York, to the epicenter where they’re putting themselves in harm’s way,” Perino added. “And then what he said today is, ‘If the federal government could help us out with some of our state losses, then maybe I wouldn’t have to do this, but sorry. Because the government won’t do it. I have to do this to you.’ That is wrong.” Cuomo said New York, which has seen more coronavirus cases than any other state in the U.S., is in dire need of federal funding to help it cope with the crisis. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has opposed so-called “blue state bailouts,” and rankled Cuomo last month when he suggested that states be allowed to declare bankruptcy instead. “Using [health care workers] as pawns in this scheme, terrible behavior,” Perino said. “That’s disgusting.”
Go Dana!! Dana is exactly right here! The dominantly liberal mainstream media has been building up Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) as this well spoken, attractive, articulate governor in command of the facts, and who might be a serious contender for the Dem Presidential nomination (something he has said he’s not interested in, btw) should Joe Biden’s campaign dissolve. But, in fact, Gov. Cuomo has been a disaster for New York. What he’s done with putting sick people in nursing homes and increasing the mortality of the elderly there is horrific. And, the way he’s treating these care givers from out of state is, as Dana say, “disgusting.” Shame on him, and those in the media not calling him out for it.
