On Thursday, MSNBC's Hallie Jackson used liberal talking points to grill GOP Congressman Buddy Carter on the way his colleague is leading the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into the Obama administration possibly collecting surveillance of members on then-President-elect Donald Trump's transition team. The Georgia representative, a supporter of Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, is against calls for an independent investigation. Jackson asked Carter, "Is the argument for an independent investigation bolstered now because of what Devin Nunes did?"
On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks and cable outlets tag-teamed to ignore live opening day coverage of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to become the next Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, instead spending over 11 hours of coverage on the FBI Director James Comey, addressing allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
During Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer found himself in heated arguments with NBC News correspondents Peter Alexander and Hallie Jackson over whether the American people can “trust” President Donald Trump and the legitimacy of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
During Wednesday's edition of MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle caught Elizabeth Warren off guard when she asked the Democratic senator from Massachusetts a question she probably did not want to hear: “Why has income inequality failed to get significantly better in the last eight years?” After all, both she and President Barack Obama were in office during that period.
Following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s press conference Thursday afternoon announcing he’s recusing himself from any investigation into the Russian government and the U.S. election, CBS and MSNBC threw fits that Sessions didn’t go far enough and peddled conspiracy theories that Sessions could still interfere with any federal investigation of Russian officials.
Over on MSNBC Live Wednesday afternoon, journalist Katy Tur took offence when a Republican politician she was interviewing called her a critic of the president. Tur denied any bias insisting she was a “journalist,” not a “critic.”
On Tuesday morning's MSNBC Live, Louise Mensch, though she claims to be a conservative, put forth what I suspect will be the left's core economic argument if the economy improves under Donald Trump. That argument: The economy is "fantastic" already, and Trump will have had nothing to do with whatever economic improvements over what is already "fantastic" we might see.
While President Trump visited the National African American Museum of History Tuesday morning, MSNBC took the opportunity to bash the president for his word choices as evidence that he was mentally ill. On top of that, MSNBC analysts stated that Trump had ran out of chances with the black community and admitted this visit wouldn’t change any opinions about him.
On Monday, our friend SooperMexican at The Right Scoop caught this embarrassing exchange on MSNBC as Katy Tur admitted to her guest that she was couldn’t recall President Barack Obama being caught on a hot mike in 2012 saying he’d have “more flexibility” to work with Russia after his reelection.
Wednesday morning on MSNBC, a panel led by Stephanie Ruhle discussed Senator Elizabeth Warren’s stunt on the Senate Floor Tuesday night attacking Trump cabinet nominee Jeff Sessions. After colleagues determined Warren had violated Senate rules by attacking another senator’s integrity, House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Warren she had lost her speaking privileges. Liberals were outraged by the decision, and the media has spun the story from their side. MSNBC used the incident as another way to attack Republicans as sexist racists.
CNN and MSNBC each did their parts on Tuesday afternoon to advance the narrative that Saturday Night Live has claimed White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s scalp as their own, hyping that Tuesday’s press briefing showed how Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation has harmed him.
Just like they did when he was President, the morning news networks Tuesday gushed over pictures of Obama vacationing, as if he was some kind of Hollywood celebrity. ABC, CBS and NBC couldn’t get enough of the former president kitesurfing in the Virgin Islands with Virgin mobile billionaire Richard Branson, oohing and ahhing at his athleticism and relaxed demeanor.
