On Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, it was the place for demonizing Republicans as regular MSNBC guests Joan Walsh and Nancy Giles called Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan a "monster" and declared that the way Senate Republicans had handled health care reform has been "criminal."

 


Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, MSNBC contributor and former talk radio host Charlie Sykes displayed the latest example of why he is the type of right-leaning figure that liberal outfits like MSNBC include who will join liberal analysts in bashing Republicans. Sykes took aim at Fox News supposedly not informing its Republican-leaning viewers on the nefarious activities of President Donald Trump, and likened conservatives to a "cult" that always supports "Dear Leader" and "Orange Deuce."


On Thursday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, during a discussion of the debate over ObamaCare repeal, former Time magazine editor Rick Stengel -- also a former Obama administration official -- asserted that Republicans view health care as a "privilege" like a "concierge service" or "entitlement" that should be "starved."


On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch pushed the typical liberal “tax cuts for the rich” narrative as he slammed the Republican health care reform bill: "The other side of the aisle will call this as a redistribution of wealth. Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year..."


In an exchange on June 23, MSNBC Morning Joe Hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough went on a rapid fire, rambling analogy rant, comparing President Trump to a developing dictator, the leader of North Korea, and the bumbling, buffoonish Nazis of a 60s TV sitcom.


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.


Throughout her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell hyped an orchestrated left-wing protest outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office on Capitol Hill as spelling certain doom for any Republican attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare.


Thursday, June 22, was marked, sadly, by the funeral services for American student Otto Warmbier following his captivity in North Korea. While others mourned the loss of this young man’s life at the hands of the tyrannical communist regime, MSNBC’s Morning Joe opted for a different route. How you ask? Why, by comparing President Trump to North Korea, of course! In an exchange with co-host Mika Brzezinski, Random House editor Jon Meacham compared the actions of Donald Trump at an Iowa rally to, “regimes like North Korea, where the dear leader speaks and we’re all supposed to salute.”


Further illustrating the blatant collusion between the Democratic Party and the news media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) spent Wednesday night predicting that history will look back on the Trump era and conclude the liberal media were “the heroes” who stood for decency and truth.


Thursday’s Morning Joe took the time to devote a whole segment to a new Netflix documentary entitled Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press. In discussion with the director, Brian Knappenberger, the panel lamented the supposed deplorable attacks by Donald Trump and his supporters on the media and First Amendment. Time was taken to mourn the demise of the "critical" news site Gawker, dead at the hands of Hulk Hogan, and Trump supporter Peter Thiel. “This seems so important,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said reverently of the conversation, “I am beginning to feel like everything he [Trump] does...is far more serious than we could ever imagine.”


Commiserating with Democratic Senator Michael Bennett on her 12 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday over the Republican heath care reform plan, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell accused the GOP of “trying to sabotage” ObamaCare. She fretted to the Colorado lawmaker: “The other issue here is what’s happening to ObamaCare and whether the White House is trying to sabotage ObamaCare by missing deadlines where insurance companies have to decide whether to re-up. What are you hearing around the country?”


You read it here first. Two months ago -- and again last night -- NewsBusters pointed out that there was a major hole in the dominant media theory that GA-06 was a "solidly Republican" district that Republicans should be embarrassed about having to defend in yesterday's special election. In spite of Donald Trump just barely winning the district last November, many journalists and commentators touted former Republican Rep. Tom Price's landslide reelection from the same Election Day as evidence the district was still solidly Republican and that its coolness toward Trump was just an anomalous diversion from normalcy.
