CNN received their wish on Tuesday that the White House press briefing would allow cameras, but it wasn’t enough as senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta and media reporter Dylan Byers melted like liberal snowflakes over Breitbart receiving a question and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slamming the media’s thrist for destroying President Trump.
Hulu’s Casual, although meant to be a comedy, has consistently infused itself with liberal propaganda. Climate change is one chosen crusade, with almost every single episode of the season so far containing mention of how climate change is destroying the earth and how people can help. The most recent episode, “Venus,” which aired Tuesday, had a little boy remark, “Global warming’s gonna get us.” While Alex (Tommy Dewey) watches over his boss’s young son, the 9-year-old mentions to Alex that global warming will destroy the earth. Although Alex agrees, he attempts to calm the boy by explaining that apparently Florida will be the first to go, implying that Democrats will have more votes in the Electoral College so they can save the world!
Barack Obama believes that “there are no red states or blue states, just the United States,” and Sophia McClennen agrees with him, sort of. In a Saturday piece for Salon, the Penn State prof declared that since “the GOP attacks on the idea of the truth and on the concept of fact-checking are only going to get more absurd,” before long “we won’t code maps by blue and red states; we will code them by whether their voters favor facts or fantasy.”
An anti-Trump journalist on Tuesday suffered a total meltdown, screaming at Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Brian J. Karem, a reporter for a local Maryland paper The Sentinel, lost it after Sanders fought back against a “barrage of fake news.” Sanders lectured the assembled journalists: “If we make the slightest mistake, the slightest word is off, it is just an absolute tirade from a lot of people in this room. But news outlets get to go on, day after day, and cite unnamed sources.”
Monday's All In show on MSNBC put on display a classic example of how when the liberal news network includes a commentator who comes from a right-leaning or at least Republican history, it's not to provide actual balance for the more liberal anchors or commentators. Instead, it is too often to bolster the liberal commentary or provide little pushback against it.
Another actress supporting Planned Parenthood? Not surprising. But did the actress miss the memo when she posed with her newborn infant to support the institution? Amber Tamblyn, best known for her role in The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, has recently attempted to follow her female colleagues in Hollywood by reinventing herself as an activist, but her latest effort to join the trend seems to have some hidden irony to it.
The snide journalists at CBS on Tuesday seem to wonder why Republicans are intentionally hurting the gullible voters who support them. The hosts of CBS This Morning talked to Shannon Pettypiece of Bloomberg about the Senate GOP’s plan to repeal ObamaCare. At one point, co-host Charlie Rose blundered, “How do [Republicans] justify the fact that it will hurt the people that supported them most enthusiastically during the election?”
The broadcast networks routinely cover so-called “hate” crimes, but when conservative nonprofits were smeared as hate groups, they said nothing. The Associated Press (AP) reported on June 8, nonprofit-tracking organization Guidestar had added “hate group” tags to 46 nonprofit groups’ profiles including The Family Research Council (FRC) and The American Family Association.
The cast of Morning Joe descended even deeper into their increasingly concerning case of Trump derangement syndrome Tuesday morning. Joe Scarborough referred to Republicans as “jackasses” while talking about health care. Steve Rattner joined in as he lamented how Trump’s future tax plan “is just for the rich.” Finally, Mika Brzezinski decried the “shiny objects” put into the media cycle by Trump and condemned the President’s “random” and “out-of-control” tweets about Barack Obama.
During a panel discussion in the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle argued that the White House warning of the Syrian regime possibly preparing to launch another chemical weapons attack against its own people was nothing more that a “political move” to distract people from the Republican health care bill.
The secret-taping squad at Project Veritas are making sure CNN has a bad public-relations week. On the heels of three journalists resigning over an unsubstantiated online report, CNN Health producer John Bonifield is caught on tape admitting that CNN is producing news for liberals, and that talking about “cutesy little ethics” is “adorable” when cable news is a “business.”
The Hollywood Reporter is relaying CNN's response: It will "not be releasing a statement" about the video, and "the network is not making a big deal about the video, which is seen by some internally as just a producer expressing his opinion about the network's coverage, rather than revealing a bias for or against the president."
The left has its week all planned out. There’s Meat Free Mondays, Throwback Thursdays, and of course, Trump Free Tuesdays. In a statement put out on Monday, June 26, the editorial team of Salon announced that for one whole day, they would neither publish the POTUS’s picture or his name. The reason why? “We’re sick of him. Everybody is, including the people who voted for him and still support him. That might not be a metaphor either.”
I used to be a brand ambassador for The View. It was beyond frustrating to see the way Elizabeth Hasselbeck was treated on the show and in the press. She didn’t stand a chance with 4-5 staunchly liberal women there to bully her whenever she presented a conservative opinion. Enter Heather Flynn-Kellogg (Fiona Gubbelman) on VH1’s Daytime Divas.
A Media Research Center study of every broadcast network evening newscast in the five weeks since the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller on May 17 found a whopping 353 minutes of airtime devoted to the Russia probe, or 55 percent of all coverage of the Trump presidency during those weeks. The study also found one-third (34%) of the networks’ Russia coverage was based on anonymous sources, some of which later proved erroneous.
When the Supreme Court of the United States released its latest batch of rulings on Monday, most eyes were on the court allowing partial implementation of the President’s travel ban on six Middle Eastern countries. The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent a lot of time hyper focusing on that ruling and the CBO report of the Senate health care bill. There was also a big win for religious liberty that got omitted from the reports of both ABC and CBS, while NBC simply tacked it onto the end of their travel ban report.
