The Most Powerful Woman in the World Is a Man

 

The #MeToo movement may be on the verge of claiming its biggest scalp to date. On Friday, The New Yorker published allegations of misconduct against the Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer of CBS, Les Moonves.

Unlike Harvey Weinstein’s company, CBS is a publicly traded behemoth. Moonves has led CBS to huge profits, $13.7B in revenue in 2017 and healthy 4 percent increase from the previous year. People like having Moonves where he is, atop the television network with the most viewers in the nation. So it will be interesting to see where this leads. According to the article, Moonves’ egregious behavior spanned from the 1980s to the late 2000s. Perhaps he learned the lessons of the Clinton years well, lessons that the American Left is only now beginning to regret.

Which brings us to our titular subject, “The Most Powerful Woman in the World,” which, in fact, appears to be a man. Despite there being heavyweight women in the news media — reporters, anchors, editors, publishers — a list that’s long and varied, it is a man that’s truly leading this movement. And that man is Ronan Farrow.

The Uncertain Future of Stephen Colbert, the “Superman” Who Bleeds

 

Things are not going well.Drudge teased this headline all day as “developing” then finally gave us a link to the New York Times: “CBS rebooting ‘LATE SHOW’ with Colbert…

It’s a show that certainly needs a “reboot,” since “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” has been a ratings failure — unwatchable to at least half the country. Why? Because Colbert is just another in long line of preachy lefty “political entertainers” who sacrifice humor for message.

Here’s something the lefty Hollywood elite just doesn’t get: Right-leaning people do enjoy your content — even though you insult the non-lefty half most of the time. If people on the right didn’t consume your product, you would not have the millions of dollars you’ve earned to pay for the several homes you inhabit. People on the right have the ability to just let it go … but we do have limits.
