It’s been a long day for old man Chris Matthews. Hosting Hardball on Thursday night after opining all day on the blockbuster Jim Comey Senate hearing, Matthews used his daily “Trump Watch” commentary to compare President Trump to Zimbabwe’s murderous dictator Robert Mughabe who ignores critics and operates with absolute rule.
Former President Barack Obama isn’t just a cool sports fan. Among his greatest contributions are giving professional athletes a voice and politicizing locker rooms, too. That’s the Kool-Aid Politico Magazine writer Ben Strauss is offering to his politics lite audience.
One of the largest revelations to come out of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s public hearing with former FBI Director James Comey on Thursday was that President Trump was not under investigation. That fact didn’t seem to sit well with CBS’s John Dickerson when he appeared during CBS News Special Report after the hearing. Almost desperately, Dickerson tried to argue Trump had to be under scrutiny, “So, a President who was once concerned about not being under investigation those actions he took may now, in fact, make him under investigation.”
Former FBI director James Comey confirmed that a New York Times report which accused Trump associates of “repeated contacts with Russian intelligence” was “almost entirely wrong,” during his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8. Yet, back in February when it was released, CNN not only promoted this New York Times report, based on allegedly leaked information – they came up with a nearly identical report of their own, and bashed Trump and his administration for questioning it.
After the much hyped James Comey Senate hearing Thursday, CNN’s John King took a shot at Republicans later that afternoon. He argued that they wanted to “dramatically lower the standard for being President of the United States.”
The Washington Post and journalists at ABC hear what they want to hear. The Post in a headline on Thursday declared that James Comey “laid out the case that President Trump obstructed justice.” After the hearings, ABC suggested that Comey intended “to lay out the facts and hope there is a prosecution for obstruction of justice.”
Yeehaw...or the whatever the goat-dominated equivalent of the trite rodeo cheer may be. Nicolle Wallace was on MSNBC Live, an antebellum carnival in its own right, Thursday following the Comey hearing to cover the fallout of the testimony. After talking about the "cutest" moments of the day and using "wacko" as an adjective, the former George W. Bush communications director claimed that the way the Trump administration is handling matters in the Russia investigation are reminiscent of a "goat rodeo":
During CNN’s live post-Comey hearing coverage Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Reliable Sources host and resident conservative media basher Brian Stelter accused the right of creating a “side show” out of the day's hearing. Instead of taking aim at Comey’s troubling admission that he purposefully leaked his private conversations with the president to The New York Times, Stelter adamantly defended that decision.
On Tuesday, the PBS NewsHour featured a report on teaching public school students to spot fake news on the internet. One of the articles that PBS gave as an example was a Breitbart article about religious freedom in the military.
While the Comey hearing into Russia was and remains a big story, CNN’s John King admitted Thursday afternoon that the media will not give much (if any) attention to Jim Comey stating that he was disturbed by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch telling him in the midst of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal that he should refer to it as “a matter,” not “an investigation.”
Ever since former FBI director James Comey became inextricably linked with the 2016 election, celebrities have been spellbound by him. They’ve loved, hated, sympathized with and berated him. But during the congressional hearings that took place Thursday morning, nearly all were on Comey’s side.
Chris Matthews freaked out over James Comey’s testimony in front on Congress on Thursday, assailing Donald Trump as worse than Richard Nixon and sneering that the current President isn’t “used to the fact that he’s constrained by the Constitution.”
During an NBC News special report immediately following James Comey’s congressional testimony on Thursday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd admitted that there was no “smoking gun” in any of the statements from the former FBI director, but still insisted that it was a “horrendous day” for the Trump administration.
CNN apparently sees part of its mission as putting out weakly sourced, anonymous and likely untrue information when it makes President Donald Trump look bad, and then weakly "correcting" it with no apologies when the truth becomes known. A particularly egregious example of this occurred Tuesday when the network published a story and broadcast video segments declaring that former FBI Director James Comey would "refute" Trump's claim that Comey told him three times that he was not under investigation.
While most celebs are focusing on the Comey hearing, comedian Amy Poehler is still upset that Trump won. Five months after the election. In her acceptance speech at the Women of the Year Awards, hosted by Glamour Magazine, Poehler mentioned that the United States this year “was all about undeserved wins.” Her reference to Trump was inevitable and unmistakeable as she launched into an imitation of the POTUS at the ceremony that took place in the U.K. last night.
