Once Again, CNS Is Selectively Offended By What Celebrities Think

Craig Bannister writes in a March 6 blog post:

A new PragerU video gives Hollywood activist-celebrities a harsh taste of reality.

“I follow Beyonce’ because, let’s face it, nobody does a break-up anthem better – but, can someone please tell me why I should care if she’s for Hillary or for Garfield the Cat?,” Candace Owens explains in PragerU’s “Dear Celebrities: No One Cares What You Think.”

Owens, director of Urban Development for Turning Point USA, says it’s understandable, given the adulation they’re showered with because of their talents, that celebrities believe other people care what they believe. But, it’s just not true, she explains:

“Nobody cares what you think. Nobody. Well, maybe your mother and your therapist do, but we don’t – not even a little.

“Allow me to spell this one out for you.”

And, she does – just watch.

But as we pointed out the last time it discounted celebrity opinions, CNS actually does care a lot about what celebrities think -- but only as long as they adhere to right-wing orthodoxy. CNS still carries a political column by celebrity entertainer Charlie Daniels, and it has treated us to the political thoughts of Fabio.

CNS has further treated its readers to the political opinions of the wife of a celebrity. An October post brought us the views of Sam Sorbo, "wife of famed Hercules actor and 'God’s Not Dead' star Kevin Sorbo." She's also described as an "actress, radio talk show host and writer," but let's be honest: Would you have heard of her if she wasn't married to "Hercules"? The next day, CNS gave Sam Sorbo, a homeschooling advocate, an entire column to rant about the evils of sending your children to preschool.

CNS showed her celebrity husband some love as well, using a February post to compile Kevin Sorbo's tweets about he "called into question the left's policy on immigration."

Apparently, nobody at CNS -- or at PragerU -- ever told Sorbo that nobody cares what he thinks.
