If you’re a conservative who cringes whenever the Hollywood left sneaks political punches into movies and shows, brace yourself for the brand-new Netflix original series Girlboss, which premiered April 21.
MRC’s director of media analysis and NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham provided analysis on the Fox Business Network following White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Thursday briefing, slamming the media for its collusion with the Democratic Party on attacking the Trump administration’s tax proposal as done solely to benefit President Trump.
ABC and NBC on Thursday conveniently ignored the news that Barack Obama will be giving a $400,000 speech to Wall Street investors, the same people he decried as “fat cat bankers” in 2009. Only CBS This Morning covered the New York Times revelation — and only in an 18 second brief that avoided hypocrisy concerns.
In a series of contentious interviews on Thursday’s network morning shows, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was forced to debate with anchors about whether President Trump’s tax plan was just “tax cuts for the rich” and even asked to swear an oath that the reform proposal would be revenue neutral.
In hostile interviews with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Thursday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America parroted the same liberal smear about Donald Trump’s tax returns to bash the President’s tax reform plan. Hosts on the respective morning shows did the Democrats’ bidding as they again demanded Trump release his returns.
The White House on Wednesday released the outline for the President’s proposed tax plan that would drastically cut taxes and simplify the filing process, among other things. CBS’s resident Trump critic and anchor, Scott Pelley kicked off the show smearing it. “Today the Trump administration rushed out a plan for historic tax cuts high on hyperbole, but with only a dollop of detail,” he declared at the top of CBS Evening News. His critique was loaded with snide attacks at the President and at one point divorced itself from reality, something Pelley once chastised Trump for.
On Wednesday, the network morning shows responded to President Trump’s tax reform plan with the standard liberal rhetoric employed whenever Republicans call for tax cuts: How are you going to pay for this massive loss of government revenue?! The ABC and NBC broadcasts also feared the plan would help Trump financially (as it would for all Americans).
A Sunday item in the San Francisco Chronicle covered what reporter Justin Phillips has found is a major challenge for that city's restaurateurs. You see, many of them are struggling with how much virtue-signaling is appropriate in the wake of the election of Donald Trump and that city's defiant insistence on remaining an illegal-immigrant sanctuary. In light of a recent Harvard study on the effect of higher-than-market minimum wages and dismal jobs data from the government, restaurateurs and the press which covers this industry and several others need to look harder at another far more important issue: how many of these establishments will be unable to remain in business.
On the day after Earth Day's "March for Science," it seems appropriate to point to a column by University of Michigan History Professor Juan Cole in The Nation, a far-far-left publication considered a credible and authoritative go-to-source by the liberal intelligentsia. On April 18, Cole, echoing statements made during their final years in power by Barack Obama and his administration's officials with establishment press acquiescence, nonsensically claimed that Syria's biggest problem during the past decade has been ... carbon dioxide. Hardly.
During CBS’s Sunday Morning, the network dedicated their “cover story,” which lasted over nine minutes, to railing against the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts. “With the proposed cuts in federal funding for the arts would hurt their program but not shut it down, but the same cannot be said for groups in other parts of the country,” whined host Jane Pauley while using the New York Youth Symphony as a political prop.
As Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted on Friday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow's obsession with the money raised for President Donald Trump's inauguration went into overdrive the previous evening. During the same show, Maddow combined that obsession with another one shared by most of the news media — the absolute necessity to avoid blaming Venezuela's dire economic circumstances on its Bolivarian socialist form of government and its de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro — to come up with the most ridiculous reason imaginable as to why civil order in Venezuela has broken down.
Pollution is all capitalism’s fault, according to the socialists at Liberation. “Earth Day then vs. now: Capitalism is still killing us,” Liberation staff headlined a piece on April 20 — just two days before marking Earth Day 2017. “Earth Day then vs. now: Capitalism is still killing us,” Liberation staff headlined a piece on April 20 — just two days before marking Earth Day 2017.
