Throughout her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell hyped an orchestrated left-wing protest outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office on Capitol Hill as spelling certain doom for any Republican attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Commiserating with Democratic Senator Michael Bennett on her 12 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday over the Republican heath care reform plan, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell accused the GOP of “trying to sabotage” ObamaCare. She fretted to the Colorado lawmaker: “The other issue here is what’s happening to ObamaCare and whether the White House is trying to sabotage ObamaCare by missing deadlines where insurance companies have to decide whether to re-up. What are you hearing around the country?”
After the network evening newscasts downplayed or ignored the father of freed North Korea hostage Otto Warmbier criticizing the Obama administration’s failure to bring his severely injured son home, on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Andrea Mitchell actually devoted a full report to the topic. However, her focus was on parroting excuses from former Obama officials.
While hosting a late-night edition of the CNN Special Report program on Wednesday, June 14, Jake Tapper asked Democratic Representative Eric Smalwell for his reaction to the shooting earlier that day of Republicans engaged in baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, by posing a surprising question: “Do you worry that the Left has gone too far in its rhetoric?”
“I worry that anyone would think that the way to express themselves would be through violence,” the member of the Democrats’ team replied after stating that the day had been “awful, just awful” for him because James Hodgkinson had vented his hatred of President Donald Trump by using a rifle to shoot Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three other people early that morning.
The Trump administration recently announced that they planned to reinstitute some of the travel restrictions to communist Cuba that were dismantled by the previous administration. The liberal media has been up in arms, declaring Trump was rolling back Obama’s legacy. As though she was anticipating it to be her last trip there, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell frantically lobbied for travel to persist during her report on NBC Nightly News. She even parroted unsubstantiated claims made by the Cuba government to try and back herself up.
On her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was worried that the clear Democratic affiliation and left-wing activism of the shooter who attacked members of Congress was going to be “swept up” in coverage of the violence and exploited by “partisans.”
Eagerly awaiting testimony from former FBI Director James Comey Thursday morning, correspondent Andrea Mitchell took to NBC’s Today to remind viewers of past “must-see” congressional hearings. The liberal reporter fondly remembered Capitol Hill proceedings that went after Republicans over the years, but conveniently skipped over the 1998 impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton.
Following Wednesday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in which Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers both denied that the White House tried to pressure them to drop the Russia investigation, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was in a panic. She accused the respected intelligence officials of “stonewalling” and providing “non-answers.”
After Hillary Clinton used a softball inteview during a Silicon Valley tech conference on Wednesday to blame everyone but herself for her failed presidential campaign, Thursday’s network morning shows eagerly promoted her excuses, even pushing unfounded conspiracy theories advanced by the former Democratic nominee.
On Wednesday, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were all over the latest developments in the Russia investigation saga. They mainly focused on how former FBI Director James Comey received permission from Special Counsel Robert Mueller to speak to Congress. Among the developments that didn’t make the cut for ABC's and CBS's evening programming, were a series of subpoenas issued by the House to former high-ranking members of the Obama administration for improper unmasking. Instead, they mentioned those issued to Trump associates.
Following the closure of President Trump’s first foreign policy trip abroad, the cast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe were unanimous in their assessment: complete disaster. “I don’t really care what politicians are saying about a trip they know was a complete disaster,” co-host Joe Scarborough complained to foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell,“You look at the President’s actions, you look at the gestures–” “He’s the ugly American,” fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski chimed in. Scarborough further lamented, “If somebody can find a more disastrous foreign trip since Kennedy's 1961 summit with Khrushchev, I'd like to know because this was a disaster.”
Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president
