Good bye, Jay Leno…
Hello liberal monopoly of late night television.
With Jay Leno’s departure from “The Tonight Show” late night television will be dominated by liberal hosts.
The Obamas have had few more obsequious media allies than NBC’s Jimmy Fallon. Now that he’s taking over the hallowed ground of “The Tonight Show,” Fallon’s proven ability to spread his reach into viral videos on YouTube promises to become even more politically potent.
Fallon’s Obama-friendly sketches and interviews have become immediate “news” grist for the Comcast corps at NBC and MSNBC. The same sensation happens when Fallon is ripping into a Republican.
Just as NBC and MSNBC were tearing Gov. Chris Christie apart over “Bridgegate,” Fallon joined this political crusade by bringing on liberal rock star Bruce Springsteen for a jokey version of the hit “Born to Run.”
Fallon and Springsteen sang clumsy lyrics that Christie was “killing the working man who is stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam.” The YouTube video went viral, while the media played it up as another nail in the coffin they were building for Christie’s career.
The NBC press agents are trying to paper over Fallon’s political tilt. A Parade Magazine profile on Feb. 16 oozed that Fallon “persuaded Brad Pitt to yodel, President Obama and Mitt Romney to ‘slow jam the news,’ and Tom Cruise to crack raw eggs on his noggin.” But why pretend?
In 2012, Fallon’s “slow jam” with Obama featured the president trying to sell his allegedly wonderful plans for college loans, and Fallon followed up by uttering in a low voice, “Awww yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy.”
