NBC cancels 'extremely liberal' drama 'Rise' amid backlash for mocking Christianity with far-left talking points
NBC has canceled “Rise” after critics accused the
show of being anti-Christian and going out of its way to squeeze in
liberal talking points.
The Media Research Center, which has
tracked the “extremely liberal high school drama” for bias against
Christians, posted an article celebrating its demise.
"Rise," which starred Rosie Perez and Josh Radnor, was about a drama
teacher who polarizes the town with his passion for musicals –
specifically the provocative “Spring Awakening.”
