In the hours following President-elect Donald Trump’s Thursday night post-election rally, the liberal media’s utter inability to control their emotions could have united even the most ardent Never Trump supporters with examples like MSNBC national correspondent Joy Reid suddenly showing reservations about a president and his immediate family lacking military service despite it being the case for two of the last three First Families (Clinton and Obama).
On the Wednesday edition of the Fox News Channel’s Special Report, conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham and her fellow panelists thoroughly excoriated President Barack Obama for a hypocritical and “infantile” attack on the cable network’s reach leading to Donald Trump’s election that’s grown to become a tiring “common thread” for the duration of presidency.
The media’s hypocritical obsession of dismissing fake news as largely the right’s problem was on display for disaffected viewers on CNN Wednesday afternoon as host Brooke Baldwin and her panel hailed the “high” “journalistic standards” of fake-rape-story-peddling Rolling Stone in their “Shakespearean tragedy” of a post-election interview with President Obama.
On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom expressed discomfort and promptly went into spin mode for Planned Parenthood as host Brooke Baldwin and two panelists shouted down Trump supporter Steve Cortes for alluding to the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal and expressing support for the Republican push to defund the abortion provider under President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
The dateline: October 24, 2015. The cover of Time magazine? Art work of Donald Trump’s hair and face- melting. The headline: “Total Meltdown.” In fact, the cover was the second Time cover depicting a melting Donald, the first running in August of 2016 and titled simply: “Meltdown”
After Donald Trump’s victory Nov. 8, several business leaders freaked. The post-election response even included a CEO’s threat on Trump’s life, but none of the major broadcast evening news shows picked up the hysteria. Business leaders despaired, told employees to resign for disagreeing with their virulently anti-Trump views and warned of “extremely dangerous times.” But threatening violence and intimidating employees for their political views apparently wasn’t newsworthy for the networks.
On the heels of CBS and NBC spending over five minutes providing a platform for a neo-Nazi conference, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell continued the media’s normalization of bigotry (unlike what they try to do with religious freedom supporters) by sloppily insinuating that “supporters of Donald Trump’s election” congregated with “the alt-right” at the National Policy Institute (NPI) conference.
The media have been promoting neo-Nazis and white nationalists in hopes to (admirably) discredit them and falsely insinuate that they were far-right conservatives who propelled Donald Trump to the White House. This trend manifested itself with five minutes and 17 seconds Tuesday morning on CBS and NBC that attempted to label the neo-Nazi conference as one featuring “conservative extremist[s]” and added up to three times more coverage than they’ve had on the March for the Life in the past four years.
The first summary of the meeting between Donald Trump and network TV stars and executives yesterday was the official one, via Kellyanne Conway: When asked if the meeting was about mending fences, Conway said, “There’s no need to mend fences. It was an off-the-record meeting. It was very cordial. Very productive. Congenial. But it was also very candid and honest.”
The New York Post used the term “f—ing firing squad.” David Remnick, the Obama-adoring editor of The New Yorker, was very upset about how Trump is scaring the liberals – he’s going to keep criticizing liberal bias? As if that were so unprofessional and beneath him (it’s never unprofessional and beneath them to manufacture it).
On Monday’s Morning Joe, the liberal media’s concern about appointments to the Trump administration was once again observed concerning the latest controversial selection of White House chief strategist. Former Trump campaign chief executive officer, Steve Bannon was appointed last week to one of the most important advisory positions in the White House. Bannon, a former chairman of Breitbart News, has been accused by the leftist press of embodying too far right policies.
Media Research Center director of media analysis Tim Graham joined the Monday edition of Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast to discuss Sunday’s American Music Awards (AMAs) and Graham blasted the liberal celebrities mocking President-elect Donald Trump and wife Melania Trump for “doubling down” on the fact that they’re not in touch with the American people.
On Monday morning, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC dedicated varying amounts of time to Sunday’s American Music Awards (AMAs) but only footnoted supermodel Gigi Hadid pretending to mock First Lady-to-be Melania Trump’s plagiarism of a Michelle Obama speech using Mrs. Trump’s Eastern European accent.
