A Moderate Independent's Take
23 March 2016 | by kingbk-2See all my reviews

As a moderate independent, I have views that some on the left would find conservative and some on the right liberal. I find faults in both parties. Having said that, I do enjoy some of these "satire" news shows. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver I find very well done. The Colbert Report, when it aired, was always quality television. I gave Full Frontal a shot due to the lack of females that have this type of platform to see a different take from the opposite sex. However, as a male who is all for equal rights for women, I find the "you can't ever criticize a woman" bias from Samantha Bee a bit aggravating after a while. There's a couple examples of this. The first is the episode about dating in the workplace. While I agree with the overall message that sexual harassment and assault in the workplace is wrong and inappropriate, it seemed to leak into "even asking out a fellow coworker on a date is wrong", which shrieks of hypocrisy seeing that Samantha Bee herself met her husband through the workplace. Yes, no means no and move on if you ask someone out and they say no, but it got a bit sketchy. The bigger, more annoying example is when she was discussing the debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. She shows a clip of Bernie raising up his arm and asking Hillary not to interrupt him. She uses it as an example to show how big of a "misogynist" Bernie Sanders is, when in reality it was a debate and anyone would do this if they were interrupted, no matter what gender they are. It just shows that Samantha Bee supports Hillary almost purely on gender alone, and that is another type of sexism in and of itself. There are parts of the show that I love, like how she shows how important mid-term and local elections are in the overall framework of the electoral process, and the videos they make I think are very well done, but some of the semi-extreme feminist propaganda gets a bit much at times. Again, I'm all for women having equal rights, but equal is not the same as special, and Full Frontal at times seems to forget that.
