On Monday morning, Hallie Jackson ran a segment on MSNBC Live devoted to investigating the ills of Venezuela amid growing tensions in the South American country. For the entirety of the segment, neither the host nor her guest even mentioned the socialism that has bound the once prosperous nation to starvation.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin denied that the dominant news media have a liberal bias after Republican Congressman Dave Brat started hitting him with reports that over 96 percent of journalists who made political donations chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. A bit later, Melvin denied biased reporting as he declared, "Even if that bias did exist -- which, I mean, Dave, it doesn't -- even if it did --" Brat zinged him: "If it exists? Now, you got to come clean with me on that one."
On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.
On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, News One Now managing editor Roland Martin -- a former CNN contributor who is now a recurring MSNBC guest -- charged that the Republican party is the "greatest threat to democracy" in America and even invoked Civil Rights Movement-era racism as he likened Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte to a Virginia "segregationist" from the past.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's MSNBC Live, MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh fretted over Ivanka Trump wearing a "girlie" dress while sitting in for President Donald Trump in a meeting of the G-20. The left-wing The Nation correspondent suggested that the dress made the President's daughter look like "property" -- reminiscent of "patriarchal, authoritarian societies" -- and bemoaned that Ivanka's behavior in the White House is "frightening."
Howard Dean appeared on Monday’s MSNBC Live with Katy Tur and went on an unhinged rant against the state of American politics. He began by first stating that, “the right has been out of step with America for a long time.” This naturally prompted the question by Tur as to why Republicans then control the presidency and Congress. Dean answered by labeling far-right Trump voters as people “with guns that want to shoot up the place” and the NRA as a “white supremacist organization.”
During MSNBC's 9 a.m. ET hour on Monday, analyst Steven Brill wanted to make sure everybody understood that ObamaCare is a “conservative” policy: "Let me just remind everyone, the reason that they're in so much trouble is that ObamaCare was a more conservative version of the Republicans' health care proposals...it was so conservative." He added: "The only reason they opposed ObamaCare was that it had the president's name on it. It was the proposal that Richard Nixon wanted.”
The mainstream media doesn’t understand pro-life Americans. They think you’re either stupid, uninformed, or some bizarre religious troglodyte opposing progress to satiate a deep lust for misogyny. Nowhere was this more evident than in Thursday morning’s bizarre tag team effort between the hosts on MSNBC Live with Velshi and Ruhle.
If you had any doubts whether the MSNBC cable television channel is run by and for liberals and Democrats, political analyst Elise Jordan erased them during her appearance on MSNBC Live on Thursday, June 22, when she compared Donald Trump to a suicide bomber.
After journalists and celebrities gushed about gun control on Twitter after this morning’s shooting of GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, some members of the media took their partisan advocacy on air. MSNBC’s counter-terrorism expert Malcolm Nance admitted to anchor Brian Williams during the 11 am hour, that he cared less about the motives behind today’s shooting than how the shooter obtained his gun.
A Democratic candidate for the governorship in Maryland appeared on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday to further incite mayhem on the day’s already circus-like broadcast. Ruhle did her part in setting up the full-fledged #Resistance member Ross with typical leftist innuendos, decrying constitutionalists like Mark Levin as the “extreme right” capable of playing to the oft-maligned Trump “base”. Ross took the bait and, refused to be one-upped in shrill hysteria.
The Left, tireless crusaders for civil political expression, slaughtered another golden calf of verbal debauchery on Tuesday.
Stephanie Ruhle had Republican strategist Evan Siegfried on MSNBC Live hours before Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ public testimony to discuss the perceived institutional problems of the Republican congress. Siegfried didn’t hold up a beheaded effigy of the President, but he had the temerity to do something ostensibly worse: use the phrase “grow a pair”
