This is perfectly reasonable. No one needs to be watching TV shows during a lecture.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Purdue blocks Netflix, Hulu, and other sites from lecture halls

Gone are the days when you could stream an episode of “Game of Thrones” or “Better Call Saul” during a boring lecture at Purdue University.

Some major comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock will no longer play colleges and this is why.

The College Fix reports:

Sooner or later no comedian will agree to a performance at a university because the hypersensitive politically correct “offense meters”...

Only a few months ago, “comedian” Michelle Wolf gave a cringe-worthy performance at the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner.  During that disastrous bit, Wolf crossed several lines of decency, particularly in her personal attacks on White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee...

Who says conservatives can’t do comedy? Allie Beth Stuckey of CRTV took the footage of the recent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez interview on Firing Line and spliced in her own questions. She also manipulated the responses from Cortez to hilarious results.

I recently wrote about the dumb idea ABC executives had to reintroduce the rebooted Roseanne show without Roseanne Barr. They acted so swiftly after her stupid tweet that they didn’t consider the fact that they were throwing away a hit show.

As someone who has worked in professional theater, I am bothered by the nearly monolithic liberal views presented by the entertainment industry. I also find it troubling that Saturday Night Live has become more of a political weapon for the left than a comedy show.

ABC seems to be realizing that they may have acted too quickly in cancelling the rebooted Roseanne series after the star published an indefensible tweet, despite her apology. The network was praised for acting swiftly but now the cost of the decision is dawning on them.

During a recent interview on CNBC, actor and comedian Bill Murray proved that he understands the harm done by identity politics. It began with questions about the #MeToo movement and Hollywood, but quickly veered into political correctness, comedy and politics.

When will Hollywood ever learn that Americans want its elitist politics out of its entertainment?

Just about now, actress Jennifer Lawrence is probably regretting her assertions that the recent spate of hurricanes hitting our country is the result of our nation electing President Donald Trump.

I’m a big fan of Special Report with Bret Baier on FOX News. Baier is one of the best straight news guys on the network, if not on all of television and he’s very good at keeping himself out of the story.

Many people have written about our media which, with few exceptions, has become an arm of the Democratic Party. The other casualty of this era is the world of comedy.

Last year, I wrote about it in a piece titled Cowardly Comedy in the Age of Obama.

Little has changed since then. Most...
