Washington Post Super Bowl Message … “🧐 Democracy Dies in Darkness 🧐 …. “!!

~~February 4, 2019~~ 


Never in my lifetime have attacks on journalism, the men and women who work tirelessly and dangerously, been so unbelievable.

The attack on facts and truth has been unrelenting.

We, citizens, depend on the truth to remain moored.



“War is peace.  Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”
George Orwell, 1984


The Washington Post aired a powerful ad narrated by Tom Hanks during Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, complete with its “Democracy Dies In Darkness” tagline.

The moving spot begins with shots of memorable news events – the March on Selma, the moon landing, the Oklahoma City bombing – but then shifts to paying tribute to journalists who have been captured or killed. 

Among those the ad memorializes is Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, whose murder was reportedly ordered by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. Following Khashoggi’s death in October 2018, Drumpf has so far refused to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the killing.

The Handmaid’s Tale …. “🤨 Season 3 …. Wake Up America 🤨 …. “!!

RedLineBThe Handmaid’s Tale Super Bowl teaser: “Wake up, America,” demands June
It’s a dark parody of a famous Reagan ad

During Super Bowl 53 on Sunday evening, The Handmaid’s Tale released a teaser for its forthcoming third season, and while there’s not tons of new footage on display, there is atmosphere for days – and the new footage we do get looks dark and vengeful.

The trailer opens with idyllic images bathed in golden light: newborn babies being cuddled by blue-draped Wives; Unwomen going to work in the nuclear waste fields: You know, the usual. “It’s morning again in America,” says a reassuring male voice.

“Today, more women are going to work than ever before in our country’s history.”

RedLineBRedLineBThe opening recreates almost word for word Ronald Reagan’s famous 1984 political ad, “Morning again in America,” in what appears to be a wink to The Handmaid’s Tale’s source material: Margaret Atwood’s novel was written in a direct response to 1980’s Reaganism and its paternalistic focus on traditional American values.

But halfway through, the announcer’s voices goes warped and confused, flames billow across the screen, and June’s head snaps up. “Wake up, America,” she says in voiceover as a team of Handmaids assemble below a giant cross.

“Morning’s over.”
