Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reported Friday that fact-mangling MSNBC anchorman Brian Williams was at it again on Thursday when he wrongly implied that President Trump might not know that U.S. troops are stationed in Qatar.
MSNBC Producer Kyle Griffin tweeted: "Brian Williams on @MSNBC says a source tells him and @NicolleDWallace they're not sure Trump knew there were Americans stationed in Qatar."
A number of senators on both sides of the aisle wondered during the June 8 Senate Intelligence Committee hearing why its witness, former FBI Director James Comey, did not react when President Donald Trump supposedly indicated to him his desire to obstruct justice in the Michael Flynn matter. The most obvious answer is that Comey did not really feel there was an obstruction request at the time especially since he never mentioned it during his May 3 testimony. However, a very imaginative New York Times opinion writer, Nicole Serratore, suggested the real reason was that the 6' 8" Comey felt sexually harassed by Trump.
I am woke, hear me snore no longer. This week’s column will be devoted to diversity, just like the left wants. We’ve got women. Heck, we’ve probably got womyn. Even super women.
And who’s more super than Gal Gadot? Beautiful. Successful. Even filmed Wonder Woman while pregnant. She’s so amazing that an entire nation is boycotting her because she’s also an Israeli and even served in the Israeli Defense Force (as required).
The latest addition to late night's comedy lineup sounds ... familiar. Here comes the latest “fresh” voice from Comedy Central. Stand-up comic Jim Jefferies joined the growing ranks of late night talkers Tuesday with his own weekly program. The Jim Jefferies Show promises to add a fresh voice to the political conversation.
On Friday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow brought on who she called “the great Dan Rather” for two segments to discuss their ongoing trauma that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. The disgraced former CBS anchor was still fabricating a disaster, or disastrously fabricating, that what the Russians did in 2016 was achieve a “psychological Pearl Harbor,” or a “cyber Pearl Harbor,” that the election of Trump was a devastating blow to America
The idea that reporting the facts about terror attacks encourages more terrorism — an idea ridiculously advanced by the likes of former Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama administration — has apparently gained some traction in the establishment press. On Tuesday, bothered by a "FOX NEWS ALERT" (in, oh my gosh, all caps) that "ISIS claims responsibility" for the hostage siege in Melbourne, Australia "that killed one person and injured three cops," Jonathan Weisman at the New York Times tweeted that such reporting is "giving the terrorists what they want," and complained that "No attack (is) too small or too far away for a big all-caps alert."
In the wake of Kathy Griffin holding up a severed head of President Trump, it’s disturbingly obvious that murderous thoughts about our leaders are now considered by the Left to be light and humorous fare, a balm for their anxieties. Charlie Hebdo has a cover with Bristish prime minister Theresa May holding her own head. The New York Public Theater "modernized" Julius Caesar so that the tyrant who gets stabbed to death is Donald Trump.
Friday's Washington Post published a blatant agitprop piece for Planned Parenthood on page A-2. The headline was "This teen is the new face of Planned Parenthood," and "social change" reporter Sondhya Somashekhar promoted 17-year-old Deja Foxx of Tucson. She came to Washington for the national publicity -- she's already been promoted by Don Lemon on CNN -- and visits to Arizona Democrats who clearly favor the abortion giant.
A month ago ESPN commissioned a viewer survey by Langer Research Associates, and ESPN Front Row’s Barry Blyn concluded the sky is not falling: Approximately two-thirds (64 percent) of respondents believe ESPN is getting it right in terms of mixing sports news and political issues. Another 10 percent had no opinion … and 8 percent said ESPN does not do enough politics in its programming.
Reacting on Friday to the Comey hearing from Thursday, the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham and FBN’s After the Bell co-host Melissa Francis lambasted both The New York Times for a dubious story about Trump associates speaking to Russian intelligence and Jim Comey for his multi-layered media operation leaking information to The Times.
CNN, MSNBC and all of the mainstream media lost their minds when President Trump rolled out a halt on travel from seven majority Muslim countries, insisting the President was abridging constitutionally guaranteed religious freedoms. The case for this argument has been relatively tenuous. However, when a leftist demagogue literally applied a religious test to a cabinet nominee, ABC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC have not as of this writing so much as mentioned the incident.
There’s only one “normal” major party left in America, argued Jamelle Bouie on Tuesday. In Bouie’s view, Democrats, “as evidenced by the rapid and normal transfer of power from President Obama to President Trump,” believe that our system “only works if both sides see each other as legitimate actors with the right to wield power should they win it…But increasingly, it seems the GOP does not…We’ve moved from ordinary partisan competition -- even partisan hardball -- to something ominous and illiberal.”
CNN on Friday belatedly made the right decision to cut ties with host Reza Aslan in the wake of his profanity-laced tirade against Donald Trump. According to a statement, “CNN has decided to not move forward with production” with his show Believer. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the MRC’s effort to hold Aslan accountable:
On Friday, MSNBC host Joy Reid, the woman who hailed Hillary Clinton as the most qualified presidential candidate since the founding fathers and served as a reliable cheerleader for Barack Obama, threw aside any sense of irony as she accused Republicans of being “sycophants” for President Trump.
Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh dedicated time on his Friday program to mocking a deranged Huffington Post column by Thomas Jefferson School of Law professor Marjorie Cohn that President Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris climate deal “constitutes an impeachable offense” and crime against humanity.
