CNN: "The Trump Show" isn't as original as "The Truman Show"
“The Trump Show” aired tonight on CNN, sounds like a takeoff of the movie “The Truman Show”.
But it was an examination of how Trump’s presidency has influenced television series.
For example, Homeland, where there is a Russian plot against the White House, was compared to the Russian hack before the election.
A lot of attention was focused on the suspension of RoseannBarr, as a “business decision”, after her racist metaphorical Tweet concerning Obama. New York Times has a big article on how companies draw the line, and this is starting to affect conduct that tech companies will tolerate on their platforms.Roseann now claims she was tired because she admitted she had voted for Donald Trump. Yet originally she was "hired" because her conservative credentials would appeal to a certain blue collar base.
