This past week, President Trump issued a sweeping executive order unraveling a host of energy regulations enacted by President Obama. Predictably the news media were beside themselves over the matter. As my colleagues at Newsbusters adroitly pointed out, ABC, CBS, and NBC were in full panic mode.
Pot, meet kettle. On Tuesday’s 11th Hour, MSNBC’s serial liar Brian Williams complained that President Donald Trump was “diminish[ing] our institutions” by touting Fox News and turning attention away from the litany of Russia investigations. As if he and the media aren’t in control of the news agenda, he also bemoaned the lack of coverage on Trump’s environmental policies.
It’s the end of the world as we know it. Just when lefty celebrities thought the world couldn’t get any worse, President Donald Trump stabbed Mother Earth in the heart.
Liberal climate blogs have insulted climate change skeptics with a term reminiscent of Holocaust deniers almost every other day — just since Donald Trump’s election. InsideClimate News, DeSmogBlog and Grist smeared people skeptical of claims about man-made climate change labeling them “deniers” on Twitter at least 69 times combined between Nov. 8, 2016, and March 27, 2017.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that stripped the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to continue with President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) went nuts. “After suffering defeat in Congress in his promise to replace ObamaCare, President Trump returned back to the executive order route today to try to deliver on another major campaign vow,” whined anchor Lester Holt at the start of NBC Nightly News, “It’s a jobs move that like the health care gamut entails shredding another major piece of the Obama legacy.”
La division de noticias de Univision se apresta a recordarnos, como vimos recientemente, que tiene una agenda política que va más allá de la inmigración.
Univision's news division is quick to remind us, as we recently saw, that it has a political agenda that extends far beyond immigration.
UPDATE, Feb. 7: On Feb. 5, Jake Tapper tweeted that "if you're concerned about things being 'incomplete' maybe consider adding into your post Manchin on same show response to rule." I attempted to find that video, and could not. If it was so important, and in the interest of balance, one would hope it would be part of the CNN video at the web link cited below — and it's not.
As Nicholas Fondacaro noted at NewsBusters Friday morning, CNN had a Thursday afternoon "You can't make this up" moment. While covering Congress's rescission of an Obama administration coal and mining industry rule, the network ran footage from the disastrous government-caused 2015 Animas River spill in Colorado and New Mexico in the background. As pathetic and embarrassing as that element of CNN's report was, government regulation correspondent Rene Marsh's one-sided and incomplete report as the Animas River footage ran behind her and The Lead host Jake Tapper was arguably worse.
CBS News ran a poll on global warming in December that it did not broadcast. PollingReport.com displayed a December 9-13 survey question: "Do you think global warming is an environmental problem that is causing a serious impact now, or do you think the impact of global warming won't happen until sometime in the future, or do you think global warming won't have a serious impact at all?"
CBS did attempt to panic the audience in a Saturday morning segment with Time's Jeffrey Kluger, who declared this issue is "not subject to politics."
2016 was a crazy year. Americans had ringside seats to the presidential boxing match between Apprentice star Donald Trump, R, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, D. Trump won the prize fight in spite of the liberal media acting more like Clinton’s boxing promoter than the referee.
Throughout the tumult, the liberal agenda dominated economic and business news from media spin of the Dakota Access Pipeline fight, to repeatedly ignoring weak economic data, and failing to expose the economic damage of Castro’s communism.
You can’t make this stuff up. On Friday morning’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo badgered Rep. Marsha Blackburn over defending Trump’s conservative pick for the head of the EPA asking her, “Can you be for clean air and water if you do not believe that man has a hand in global warming?”
With each conservative cabinet pick, the media freaks out and does their best to characterize each person as a radical extremist. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was next in line for the media to attack, as the liberal women at The View were quick to bash Trump's “horrible pick” for the Environmental Protection Agency as someone who was going to leave the United States in an apocalyptic wasteland filled with polluted air and dirty water.
