Barbara Bush, AIDS Activist? Oh, Gimme a Break

BY ED SIKOV | “When the administration censored images of the flag-draped coffins of the young men and women being killed in Iraq — purportedly to respect ‘the privacy of the families’ and not to minimize and cover up the true nature and consequences of the war — the family matriarch expressed her support for what […]

Fake Gay News

Fake Gay News

BY ED SIKOV | “Mike Pence Being Accused of Having Sexual Relationship with Gay Pornstar Is Fake News” is the attention-grabbing headline of a piece in an online rag called “Business 2 Community.” It’s all pretty breathless in tone; writer Shawn Rice appears to think he’s informing readers of something terribly vital. “There is no truth to […]

Guess What? Rump Lied Again

Guess What? Rump Lied Again

BY ED SIKOV | Rump’s nonexistent relationship to the truth is no longer news and hasn’t been for a very long time.

Bigotry and Bullshit

Bigotry and Bullshit

BY ED SIKOV | Speaking of bigotry and bullshit — we’re always speaking of bigotry and bullshit here at Media Circus — we can thank Erik Wemple and the Washington Post for catching Fox News in the act. The headline reads: “Fox News eliminates column by network executive blasting Olympic diversity as ‘Darker, Gayer, Different.’” I […]

Rump’s Words, Kadyrov’s Images, Gennarini’s Bile

BY ED SIKOV | “Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, […]

That Word — Over and Over and Over Again

BY ED SIKOV | I have never seen or heard the word “shithole” more in my life than I have since January 11. Not only was that the day I turned 61, but it was also the day that Rump — in a marvelous prelude to Martin Luther King Day — employed the word to describe […]

Starting the Year Back on Crackpot Alley

BY ED SIKOV | We haven’t taken a stroll down Crackpot Alley in quite a while. So let’s go for a walk! Guess who the first person we see is? Yes, that’s him, leaning against the decrepit wall of a clown-themed gay bar. It’s the three-time winner of the “World’s Greatest Asshole” contest, Milo Yiannopoulos. We’d […]
