On Friday morning's News One Now, host Roland Martin repeatedly ranted over the 33-year sentence that O.J. Simpson received almost a decade ago, even as the far-left commentator admitted he believes Simpson was indeed guilty of the prior offense of murder that he was acquitted of in 1995. After complaining that the judge in the 2008 armed robbery case had been "shameful" and "despicable," he charged that "white folks can't get over O.J.," leading one guest to provocatively mock whites because they lost a "precious white woman and a precious white man" who were killed by the former NFL star.


MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews wasn’t done on Thursday night with the ridiculous comparisons involving Donald Trump, ending the show by comparing the President to O.J. Simpson in that he wants all government attorneys “to serve as his personal Johnnie Cochrans and Special Counsels named specifically to investigate him.”


As all the major news networks this week have highlighted the tragic case of Minnesota bride-to-be Justine Damond being shot to death by a police officer, far-left News One Now host Roland Martin -- who sometimes appears on MSNBC -- has conspicuously given no attention to the story even while continuing to update viewers on high-profile cases of blacks being killed by the police.


The Women's March movement has received fawning and forgiving establishment press attention, particularly from the Associated Press and New York Times, since its first official event the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration. Now the movement appears to be (or at least should be) self-immolating for several reasons, most recently its unapologetic support for a 1970s convicted cop killer. That controversy has even pulled in the Black Lives Matter movement, which has also received consistent and undeserved favorable press treatment, also exposing BLM once again as consistently, violently radical. Now the AP and the Times aren't covering either group's direct association with this controversy.


On the Monday edition of his eponymously named PBS show, host Tavis Smiley provided a forum with little pushback for author and American University Professor Ibram Kendi to claim that the social problems that disproportionately exist within America's black population are the result of continuing racial discrimination, and that those who do not agree with his conclusions therefore must believe blacks are "inferior."


On Monday, the Iranian government handed down its twisted form of justice when they sentenced an American graduate student to 10 years in prison on spying allegations. “That sentence comes on the day President Trump is supposed to decide on a key matter concerning the nuclear deal with the Islamic republic,” announced Anchor Bret Baier on Fox News Channel’s Special Report. The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely ignored the story, but they went gaga for a dog and a baby deer.


In May, as noted at NewsBusters, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray ended his run for reelection in the wake of "mounting allegations that he sexually abused underage boys in the 1980s." On Sunday, the Seattle Times reported that records previously thought destroyed revealed that "An Oregon child-welfare investigator concluded" that" Murray "sexually abused his foster son in the early 1980s." The Times, as well as related wire reports from the Associated Press and Reuters, only told readers that Murray is a Democrat in very late paragraphs.


On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the show's regular "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton was imagining racist dog whistles as he complained about "unmitigated, racially-tinged cruelty" from Congressman Steve King, and suggested that those who think like the Iowa Republican are "evil."

 


Timothy B. Lee is the Lead Writer for the "New Money" section of the reflexively leftist Vox.com. He has looked at what has happened to the city of St. Louis during the past 60 or so years, and thinks that Ronald Reagan is largely to blame. Too bad for him that most of the reasons for St. Louis's decline have absolutely nothing to do with the Gipper.


Por si se lo perdieron, el congresista Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) sacó tiempo de un reciente discurso en el pleno de la Cámara de Representantes de los Estados Unidos para lamentar la cobertura que MRC Latino le dio a declaraciones hechas ante Telemundo hace dos años atrás con respecto a legislación contra ciudades santuario.


The Associated Press has both given short shrift to and significantly whitewashed a frightening, violent threat made against President Donald Trump by a Democratic state representative from South Portland, Maine. On Tuesday, Scott Hamann, in a long Facebook rant, wrote, among other things, that "Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p***y.”


On Monday's CNN Tonight, correspondent Sara Sidner recalled reports of an 11 percent increase in hate crimes in California, but did not put into context that the state has recently suffered a general increase in violent crime -- that is about in line with the hate crime increase -- that has been linked to the release of many formerly incarcerated criminals.
