Will Z Nation Offer President-Elect Trump Equal Time?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 32 minutes ago
Sunday morning, El Presidente-elect Señor Trumpanzee was whining on Twitter how he wants "equal time" because Alec Baldwin's portrayal of him of *SNL* was "one-sided" and-- even more unforgivable-- not funny. Does the thin-skinned Trump still think he was elected to be Entertainer-in-Chief? Ironically-- when you look at who voted for him-- maybe he actually was. Trumpanzee may never have watched it but I bet more Trump voters are also *Z Nation* fans than *SNL* viewers, let alone *Hamilton* fans. Just before the election they ran one of the craziest episodes in their three crazy, ... more »

H/T commenter Sisyphus. I must admit that when I stumbled across the BBC’s *‘**An Extremist in the Family*’ I was immediately struck by the overtly sympathetic narrative by the BBC’s Dominic Casciani. The production was disconcertingly lavish and seductive. Nicola Benyahia’s ‘extremist’ son had been killed in Syria, having run off without any warning, to fight for Islamic State. Casciani portrayed Nicola Benyahia as an innocent, moderate - liberal even - Muslim woman who was completely baffled by her son’s sudden radicalisation. For some reason that didn’t ring true, and it turns... more »
