Radio: The Case Of JonBenet Ramsey And The Political Activism Of Entertainers

David Harsanyi and Ben Domenech review this week in entertainment including JonBenet Ramsey, ‘Survivor,’ and Samantha Bee.


Senior editor David Harsanyi joined Ben Domenech on Federalist Radio to weigh in on the CBS documentary of JonBenet Ramsey’s murder, the entertainment industry’s political activism, and the new season of “Survivor.”

Harsanyi said it’s obvious that one of the parents was responsible for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, but that they weren’t arrested because they were a powerful and wealthy family in Boulder. “The problem was, not that there wasn’t evidence, is that there was too much evidence… every single thing that was used in this kidnapping was found in the house,” he said.

A conversation about late night television comedians and their political influence surfaced on social media this week in response to Ross Douthat’s column about “Clinton’s Samantha Bee Problem.” “I wonder if the people who would be affected by this aren’t already liberal anyway,” Harsanyi said. “Though I think they normalize things in culture that aren’t that healthy, like comparing Donald Trump to Hitler.”

Later in the hour, Harsanyi explained how the new season of “Survivor” pits millennials and Gen-Xers against each other. “In the end, as with most ‘Survivor’ seasons, even with the races and everything else, you find out that people in the same groups are very different from each other, and sometimes more similar to people in the other group.”
