With the Democratic Party defeated, ObamaCare set for repeal, and incoming President Donald Trump poised to revoke a host of his executive orders, Obama’s actual legacy will likely fall far short of what his media fan club once imagined. But one aspect of his place in history seems secure: Barack Obama has been the lucky recipient of more biased, positive “news” media coverage than any other President in history.
CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour made a complete fool of herself on Tuesday night accepting an award at a dinner for the Committee to Protect Journalists, founded to champion journalists endangered when reporting abroad.
She began with fear: “I never in a million years thought I would be up here on stage appealing for the freedom and safety of American journalists at home.” She ended with an even sillier metaphor, as cooked for dinner: “Let's resolve not to be turkeys voting for Thanksgiving!” Did anyone bring a Breathalyzer machine?
By Wednesday morning, the on-air, online, and print meltdowns by liberal media types were exploding at an exponential rate with CNN’s New Day facilitating a few as senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin shrieked at the idea of conservatives on the Supreme Court while chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour lost it over “far right” European figures being “eager and jubilant” about President-Elect Donald Trump.
Alex Griswold at Mediaite pointed out that star PBS filmmaker Ken Burns is out on cable television ranting the liberal line again. The program was Amanpour on CNN International after the debate on Thursday. Christiane Amanpour, his fellow Obama enthusiast, was interviewing him about his latest PBS documentary on saving Jews from the Nazis, which they both naturally thought offered Republican parallels.
During Thursday's edition of the Cable News Network's weeknight Amanpour program, liberal host Christiane Amanpour asked guest Oliver Stone what the well-known film director, screenwriter and producer thought regarding the inclusion of Russia into this year's presidential election.
Stone -- who has generated controversial movies ranging from Midnight Express to the upcoming Snowden “biopic” of the man who released classified documents in 2013 -- called the accusation of Russians hacking into the Democratic National Committee “a great fiction” that disguises “what's really going on.”
CNN International host Christiane Amanpour was at it again on Monday night in flashing her far-left ideology as she used her eponymous show to angrily maim critics of Hillary Clinton and (a select few) in the media as sexist for raising questions about her health and hiding the pneumonia diagnosis and unwilling to let “a girl have a sick day or two.”
Broadcasting from the RNC in Cleveland Wednesday night, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah brought on CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour to discuss journalistic ethics. The longtime liberal anchor, who has spent her career pushing a left-wing agenda, audaciously told Noah, that journalists shouldn’t be neutral or unbiased in their reporting. Instead, she claimed, journalists should “find the truth” and report it.
NewsBusters is continuing to document the news media’s role in enabling Hillary Clinton’s political career, showing how reporters showered were with positive news coverage while they savaged her opponents. Today, ten examples representing the softball treatment Hillary has received in TV interviews over the years.
CNN's Christiane Amanpour took her left-leaning, pro-European Union activism to a new level on Tuesday during an interview of pro-Brexit politician Daniel Hannan. Amanpour, who recently blasted the referendum as an example of "xenophobia", tried to implicate Hannan as somehow partially responsible for supposed post-vote "hate crimes."
The June 27 edition of Notable Quotables: ABC showcases a pro-amnesty protest slogan (“Don't Deport My Mom”) to frame their coverage of the Supreme Court's blocking of Obama's executive orders, while reporters exploit the ISIS massacre in Orlando to demand more federal gun control. “What will it take to move the needle when it comes to gun control?” CBS's Gayle King pleaded.
Plus: The New York Times blames hateful GOP rhetoric, not radical Islamic ideology, for the Orlando attack; a columnist says Trump's temporary ban on Muslims is akin to how Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin “killed millions of his own citizens,” and ex-CNN star Larry King says he’s “very independent,” but his voting record doesn't seem to support it.
Liberal CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour suffered an epic meltdown on Thursday night as it became clear that Britain was asserting its national sovereignty and voting to leave the European Union. The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics.
On her eponymous CNN show on Thursday night, Christiane Amanpour verbally harassed former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair over his involvement in the Iraq War and specifically whether he and former U.S. President George W. Bush “feel pain” and “a sense of responsibility” for the war having supposedly caused recent Islamic terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.
