Anti-Muslim Violence Is Everywhere—Except in the American Media – my Daily Beast Article

Posted on

I wanted to share to share my new Daily Beast article about how we are seeing a wave of terror against American Muslims in the last few months but the mainstream media is all but ignoring it. Just on Saturday we had an “act of terrorism” in Minnesota as the Governor there put it with a explosive device thrown into a mosque. We have seen several mosques burned to the ground as well as countless attacks on American Muslims since Trump was sworn in. The media can play a role in countering this by covering it. Sadly it seems the media covers terror attacks carried out by Muslims with great zeal but ignores it when we are the victims. You can read it HERE.

Sean Spicer should NOT be remembered for how SNL depicted him but for his lies- My CNN article

Posted on

I wanted to share my new CNN article about when it was announced Friday Sean Spicer was resigning many people from a Democrat in Congress to journalists expressed how much they would miss Melissa McCarthy’s depiction of him on SNL. Do you think that would’ve been the reaction when they heard about Spicer leaving if not for SNL? Instead Im sure the response would’ve been to note the times Spicer lied, made false statements to defend Trump and tried to undermine the media. This is a great lesson on the power of political comedy. The risk is that it can make a political figure seem more likable and sympathetic than they deserve. The hope is SNL and comedians never do that with Donald Trump but instead use comedy to remind people of Trump’s history of hate and misconduct. 

Don’t be Fooled by the Fake Trump

There are two Trumps: The real and the fake one. The Fake Trump is the one we see reading scripted speeches appearing “presidential.” The real Trump is the one we see the rest of the time who denies inconvenient facts, mocks the face of a female cable host, demonizes minorities and attacks our intelligence agencies. Hope you check out my new CNN article.
