CBS announced a new diversity pledge Monday that will have a visible impact on its staple of reality shows: All future casts will contain at least 50 percent Black, indigenous and people of color. That means hits like Survivor, Big Brother, and Love Island will be far more diverse starting with the 2021-2022 season. "The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling," said George Cheeks, president and chief executive officer for the CBS Entertainment Group.


Apparently my local Barnes & Noble book store has also become "woke." When I went there a couple days ago, ALL of the employees were black. I wonder if this was a local decision or a company-wide edict? I think I'll be avoiding the chain for a while.

Why, since America is still approximately 67% White folks. Though we wouldn't know it by watching network TV and seeing all the black, mixed-race couples and people of every color mixing socially. Doesn't happen in the real world, and they cannot force it to happen by their progressive programming.

Big Brother is going to run entertainment media, not the people that make the programs. I don't understand why any producer, artist, or actor would accept their creations being corroded and destroyed by political interference in this way.

Survivor is well known for dividing it contestants into teams according to some characteristic or other. Will they have a "Survivor — White v. Non-White" season? Their show, their dollar. "Get woke, go broke," as the expression goes.

First season survivor was new and refreshing and different. After that, meh, with rare exception. We watched by habit for a few more seasons but the fun never came back. As far as affirmative action for reality TV goes... uh ok... they already pick people based on how obnoxious they are so the shows are interesting for the viewers with heroes and villains and such. So now they will add another criteria and possibly pass over more interesting people for XYZ race people who might be boring. Good luck. Survivor managed to be multi-racial without making a big deal out of it and patting themselves on the back for every token on the show.

Aren't we impressed. It should have been that way in the first place. I was taught not to look at someone's skin color and that meant everyone should be given a chance. When your program first started, you should have been giving EVERYONE a chance. I am so impressed that your program was racist in the first place because you did not give everyone (no matter their color) a chance at applying and now you are running around trying to convince people of it because you are putting 50% people that are of color.

Was the Johnson & Johnson vaccine developed from aborted fetal cell lines? It is a question many of you have asked the VERIFY team after the Catholic church issued a statement warning Catholics that the shot is “morally compromised”. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Committee on Pro-life Activities posted a statement online and social media. It said, in part, “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine … was tested and is produced with abortion-derived cell lines raising … moral concerns. Therefore, if one has the ability to choose a vaccine, Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should be chosen over Johnson & Johnson.”

The Biden administration asserted the federal government plays a primary role in providing education about voter registration and combating “misinformation.” His administration is devoted to promoting and defending “the right to vote for all Americans who are legally entitled to participate in elections,” he states in the order.

After mumbling his way through a condemnation of "wage slavery", Chomsky bizarrely claims that capitalism is worse than Stalin.

Reid was mocking the senator who has come under fire himself for questioning accounts of what what occurred on January 6 at the Capitol, but Greenwald did not find Reid's description amusing.

But Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley is fighting the potential change to that hiring policy, saying that, without the decree, Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac may have never been hired in the first place. Tom Burns, an attorney representing Erik Kohler, says his client was initially passed over for a promotion to sergeant in July because of his race.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
