S.E. Cupp’s show “Unfiltered” debuts on Monday night, but don’t expect the longtime conservative commentator to abide by typical mainstream media rules regarding political correctness — she prefers common sense.
“On both sides of the aisle, political correctness is used as a cudgel to animate both liberals and conservatives and the more important thing to focus on is common sense,” Cupp told TheWrap. “If common sense is our guiding principle, both in life and politics, we can actually make things a lot easier for ourselves.”
“S.E. Cupp Unfiltered” aims to address contemporary issues impacting everyday Americans through energetic debates that will feature a rotating cast of guests and regular panelists. Cupp said that political correctness has resulted in a major backlash and she plans to “dismantle” examples on a regular basis with her new platform because many political and media figures seem to have “forgotten” what common sense looks like.
“In a world where everything was once offensive, now nothing is offensive,” she said. “Neither is really a good place to operate in.”
