Since the Trump administration announced Wednesday morning that it would be reviewing the Iran nuclear deal in light of the autocratic regime’s continued support for global terrorism, full-time liberal sycophant and part-time journalist Andrea Mitchell took to NBC’s Today each morning to praise the “historic” agreement implemented by Barack Obama and chastise Donald Trump for trying to “rip it up.”
On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell and USA Today’s Susan Page were positively giddy about the prospect of Senator Elizabeth Warren running for president in 2020. Promoting an interview she just conducted with the Democrat, Page excitedly recalled: “I asked if she was going to promise Massachusetts voters that she would serve all six years of her second Senate term. And she said, ‘Well, that's certainly the plan.’ That is not exactly a denial of interest in the 2020 presidential race.”
On Thursday, "President Donald Trump signed a bill Thursday undoing an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics." On NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, Andrea Mitchell's sense of cruel irony was utterly absent, as she described the bill potentially affecting the nation's largest abortion provider as "a killer decision."
In a gooey interview released on Monday, MSNBC host and NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell hilariously told Politico Magazine columnist and friend Susan Glasser that she was not a Hillary Clinton hack or a liberal journalist because “that isn’t my reputation” and claimed the Clinton campaign press “harass[ed] her...all summer long about the private server.”
The partisan journalists at MSNBC proved they have no problem flip flopping when it comes to filibustering and the nuclear option. As the Republicans were voting to change the Senate rules, Thursday, and confirm Neil Gorsuch, MSNBC blamed Donald Trump. Andrea Mitchell lectured, “This is another history-making moment which another White House might have been able to avoid, perhaps with better leadership.”
All three networks gave full reports to the Susan Rice scandal Wednesday morning, but spent the majority of the time deflecting blame from Rice to attack President Trump. Just like yesterday, ABC and NBC offered the most biased coverage, going out of their way to attack Trump for his wiretapping claims instead of focusing on Rice’s history of lying about the unmasking allegations.
The Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN continued to make a fool of itself on Tuesday, downplaying the Susan Rice story of leaking/unmasking of intelligence dispatches as if it were the Zika virus. Hilariously, it’s attracted significant attention from not only the Fox News Channel but MSNBC. NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell led her eponymous MSNBC program at noon Eastern with a 16-and-a-half-minute exclusive sit-down with Rice, featuring some tough questions but little in the way of follow-up or pushback.
According to former Obama State Department flack (and former Time magazine editor) Richard Stengel, when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refuses to answer shouted questions from hostile liberal NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell, America’s top diplomat “empowers” authoritarian regimes around the world.
On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Friday, host Andrea Mitchell, the left-wing partisan masquerading as a journalist, used efforts to roll back onerous ObamaCare regulations as an excuse to smear Republicans as sexist. Meet the Press host Chuck Todd gleefully joined in the GOP bashing: “...you think you have a gender gap problem now? You haven't seen anything yet.”
As former New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte appeared as a guest on Thursday's Andrea Mitchell Reports to discuss the Neil Gorsuch nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, host Mitchell brought up "bitterness" from Democrats about the Senate's refusal to take up President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland last year. She ended up claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden was "taken out of context, with all due respect," after Republican Ayotte started to recall that, in 1992, then-Senator Biden advocated blocking action on any potential Supreme Court vacancies until after the election.
In the 12 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday, following the first few hours of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch being questioned by the Senate Judiciary Committee, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams admitted: “I think, the expression in English is ‘It's tough to lay a glove on this guy.’”
Capitol Hill was a hive of activity on Monday. The House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers about the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In the Senate, the Judiciary Committee conducted the first in a series of hearings in the confirmation process of Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both were major events on the hill but the Comey hearing drew the overwhelming majority of the network news attention, leaving one anchor to say it was “overshadowing” Gorsuch.
