‘Woke’ Murphy Brown Cancelled After ‘Historically Low’ Ratings

Published

on

CBS has cancelled its reboot of “Murphy Brown” after learning the same lesson that ABC learned before nixing Roseanne from “Roseanne:” ordinary Americans do not want to hear sniveling Hollyweird snots lecture them about social justice as a form of entertainment.

Who would have guessed?

“CBS has pulled the plug on its revival of Murphy Brown after 13 episodes, opting not to bring the resurrected series back for a second season,” said Screen Rant.

The cancellation of the came after a controversial Thanksgiving episode in which the main characters threatened ICE agents. Newsbusters described:

In the episode airing November 22, titled “Thanksgiving and Taking,” Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) insists on cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for her son Avery (Jake McDorman), a journalist, since he is home this year. He usually misses the holiday with Murphy because of his work assignments. She also insists that her co-workers join them.

When bar and grille owner Phyllis and her helper Miguel (a DACA student worker) show up with the liquor, Miguel tells Murphy he can’t stay for dinner because he is going to help his parents on their food truck. Murphy insists they come to dinner, too, since a winter storm is moving in and they will have no customers.

Suffice it to say, Murphy can’t cook. Miguel’s mother helps Murphy and while doing so, they talk about her coming to America illegally to escape the violence in their country. She tells Murphy that Miguel was only two years old at the time.

The storm causes the electrical power to go out in Murphy’s home so they all head out to the food truck to finish cooking the meal. That is when two ICE agents show up. A neighbor complained about a food truck on the street and when the license plate was run because of a broken tail light, the police discovered that there was an outstanding order of removal for Miguel’s parents, Carlos and Maria. As this is happening, Avery asks Pat (Nik Dodani) to film it on his camera while he provides narration. Needless to say, Murphy isn’t having it. She threatens the ICE agents and then uses intimidation.

Also, one of the ICE agents first assumes that Pat is Carlos and questions where he was born. Pat is Indian-American from Ohio. The implication seemed to be that an ICE agent couldn’t distinguish between an Indian-American, and someone from Central America.

Expert Witness Who Testified Against Harvey Weinstein in His Criminal Trial is Hit by Car

Published

on

A forensic pathologist who gave critical testimony during the criminal case of Hollywood sex pervert Harvey Weinstein was hit by a car in recent days, LawandCrime.com has discovered.

Dr. Barbara Ziv is currently in the hospital following the attack with no other details about the situation currently known. She talked about “rape myths” during her testimony at the trial on behalf of the prosecution, blowing many holes through Weinstein’s defense

“Many individuals who are sexually assaulted will tell somebody: a friend. Not everybody, but many,” Ziv testified at the trial in January. “Very few people then will report to a doctor or a counselor or a spiritual advisor, and then the next level is to law enforcement — and even fewer report to law enforcement.”

“As devastating as sexual assault is, most individuals think, ‘Ok, I can put it behind me. I can move on with my life. I don’t want it to get worse. I don’t want this person who sexually assaulted me to ruin my friendships or put my job in jeopardy. I am just going to put it in a box and forget what happened. I don’t want it to get worse,’” Ziv said while appearing in court. “But they can’t.”

“Sometimes women will have subsequent contact with the perpetrator because they can’t really believe that this happened to them,” she added. “They’re hoping that this is just an aberration. You hear that all the time.” Ziv claimed during the trial that it is a myth that “one can determine whether somebody has been raped by their behavior.”

There is no evidence that Dr. Ziv, who also gave testimony during the Bill Cosby trial, was struck in retaliation for giving testimony damning to Weinstein. However, there is a long history of Weinstein exerting intimidation, including levying alleged threats and having individuals followed in order to keep those who may expose his illicit behavior from talking.

Intrepid journalist Ronan Farrow, who has blown the lid off of many Hollywood sex scandals, once said he feared for his safety while writing an exposé of Weinstein.

“I don’t make light of the fact that it was frightening to be in the crosshairs of that,” Farrow said. “I mean, there were times when I feared for my safety and, you know, my sources were telling me to get a gun and I moved out of my apartment.”

Weinstein was not able to escape justice, despite being protected by the entertainment industry for decades. He was found guilty of third-degree rape and other sex crimes in the court of law on Monday. He is scheduled to face another trial in California on different sex crime charges.

Big League Politics will provide updates on Ziv’s condition and the circumstances of her “accident” as the details emerge.
