Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's All In with Chris Hayes, supposedly right-leaning Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin was at it again -- appearing on MSNBC to mostly agree with a liberal host -- as she joined Hayes in fretting over President Donald Trump's proposal for a government agency that tracks criminal activity by non-citizens. After oddly claiming that such an agency would likely be unconstitutional, suggesting that it would "create a mob mentality," Rubin -- who was even identified on screen as a "conservative columnist" -- took a swipe at Fox News, calling it a source of "nonsense" news consumed by President Trump.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes has a new book coming out on March 21 called A Colony In a Nation. In a supportive summary published in The Week magazine, Ryan Cooper reports shocking arguments: that somehow Black Lives Matter are the new Founding Fathers in a America that's a tyrannical state, like a Soviet gulag for black people.
The right might not agree with most of what Hollywood celebrities say regarding politics, but there’s one thing they can agree on: The media underestimated voters’ desire for change from the status quo this election. On MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes Wednesday night, Hayes found an unlikely critic of the media and Democrats in actress Susan Sarandon, who openly campaigned for Bernie Sanders and criticized Hillary Clinton during the primaries.
On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, during a discussion of White House press secretary Sean Spicer complaining about the media calling President Donald Trump's restrictions on immigration a "Muslim ban," CNN political commentator Errol Louis repeated a story that has turned out to be a hoax that the Iraqi mother of an American citizen died in Iraq because she was barred from traveling to the U.S. for treatment. The story in question has since been exposed as a fabrication, as the woman died several days before the restrictions were imposed. Louis: "All of the stories that have been done by this network, by other news organizations, finding who these people are -- these so-called 'bad people' who had to be kept out and finding out that they're children, they're elderly people, they're patriots, they're members of the military, they're, you know, grandmothers. They're people who in at least one tragic case wasn't able to come here for medical treatment, and died, you know."
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin appeared on Friday's All In with Chris Hayes to play the role of allegedly right-leaning MSNBC guest who mostly offers agreement to the liberal MSNBC host, and spends little time injecting the conservative point of view into the conversation. As Hayes focused on reports that Republicans have expressed worries in private meetings about how to repeal ObamaCare, Rubin repeatedly appeared amused and almost had the giggles over the plight of her fellow Republicans as she seemed to cheer on the liberal MSNBC host's obvious pleasure over the political difficulties.
The hosts at MSNBC are not ready to say goodbye. Previewing the farewell address of Barack Obama on Tuesday, Rachel Maddow enthused over the “excellent” President. Chris Hayes gushed over the “sheer political talent.” Maddow reminisced, “I think he'll go down in history as both a consequential and excellent president, viewed from the beginning of the country until now.”
The news media reward Donald Trump with a “honeymoon” as unfriendly as their campaign coverage, with journalists blasting the President-elect as a “racist,” “authoritarian” and a “demagogue,” while some cast his election as “tainted” and potentially “illegitimate” because of Russia’s hacking.
In the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in November, the Democrats and the liberal media have been in a frenzy trying to find a reason for their comeuppance. At first they ran to their usual cries of racism and misogyny, but on MSNBC’s All In Thursday night the straw grabbing got weird as host Chris Hayes literally blamed too many people on Twitter talking about Clinton’s controversies.
MSNBC took their fear mongering of President-elect Donald Trump to new heights Tuesday night when All In host Chris Hayes reported that, “Trump’s comments about nuclear weapons have experts worried he could literally inadvertently trigger a catastrophe.” Hayes used two segments of his show to try to drive home his narrative and help spread his fear. He also brought on Esquire writer Charlie Pierce to aid him in his endeavor.
While discussing President-elect Donald Trump's selection of Andrew Puzder -- the chief executive officer of the Hardees and Carl's Jr. fast food restaurants -- as the new labor secretary, All in host Chris Hayes asked Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders a curious question.
“How much will reality matter under the presidency of Republican Donald Trump?” the MSNBC anchor asked, and the former Democratic presidential candidate replied that “he's a pathological liar who changes his mind every single day.”
The liberal media threw a proverbial hissy fit Monday in response to President-Elect Donald Trump’s dubious claim that millions of votes were cast illegally. While seeming pretend that Trump would be the first president ever to tell a lie, public-radio Bob Garfield went on a long winded tirade, on MSNBC’s All In, railing against the “Right wing media.” “The people who get it and we at the mainstream media, you know, get the straight dope but about half the electorate is getting their information from other sources, none credible,” he whined.
The liberal media were in mourning on Election Night when it became clear Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States. Panic was palpable and journalists, particularly on NBC networks, blamed a significant drop in Dow futures on Trump’s victory. CBS said the drop in futures felt like “Brexit,” while Rachel Maddow claimed Trump would wear the market drop as a “badge of honor.” One NBC discussion even anticipated Trump would need to “rectify” a possible “economic collapse.”
