Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 16, 2023

Bill Maher said his show is returning to air -- despite the WGA writer's strike raging on. "Real Time is coming back, unfortunately, sans writers or writing," Maher said on Instagram Wednesday. "It has been five months, and it is time to bring people back to work."

So, is he just going to ad lib through his show?

Or does he have some sympathetic writers joining him?

Sounds like it. It's probably just his podcast but on HBO.

I am very disappointed in him. I don't think i'll ever forgive this sellout of the writers. They will be funny again but I wonder if he ever will be.

Bill Maher is becoming another Dennis Miller.

Re 9

Yup. Yeah and good luck. Bill Mahr is losing it. He's becoming a hateful grouch.

He got himself all worked up over Republican culture wars. Trying to blame liberals for the extreme levels of maga insanity doesn't sit well with me. Especially the whole "woke" thing. He blames liberals for this republican sponsored insanity.

I thought it was hilarious that he was jealous that news shows could still be in the air and he couldn't and that's when Ari Melber reminded him they didn't need writers if they were just reporting the facts.

Sorry Bill. Liberal crazies are no where near the same level of crazy as the Trumpy maga maroons.

Both sides are NOT the same. Not even close.

The thing about Maher position on "woke" is he fails to acknowledge that the whole thing is primarily a made up controversy by the right. They paint any seemingly odd leftist behavior as representative of all liberals and progressives. It is wholly disingenuous and defending marginalized groups that are being attacked should be a core leftist value. He refuses to acknowledge that this whole thing is a huge nothing burger at best or weaponization of leftist compassion at worst.

His primary motivation is that he thinks he is being "cancelled " by the left. Which is downright insane given he is paid quite handsomely for his speech. He attacks liberals (and usually marginalized groups) for finding a way to cooperate and respond to hateful rhetoric and actions. And public shaming of -------- or de platforming bigots is not something the left need apologize for

Bill Maher treats the two parties like a bemused parent, unaware of the implications of what he's witnessing.

Oh look little Democrat Suzy poured both milk and orange juice on her breakfast cereal. Isn't that adorable!

Oh look little Republican Timmy shoved a firecracker up the cat's ass. Isn't that adorable!

Apparently Drew Barrymore was going to bring her show back tomorrow but has changed her mind after all the backlash.

Does anyone on the left still care about the Hollywood little people that are put out of work but have no union benefits? Just curious.

---- off, ------.

That sounds like a no.

He changed his mind, not because it was the right thing to do.

He realized he wasn't going to be able to get many guests who would cross the picket line.
