In a great catch by Washington Examiner’s Eddie Scarry, MSNBC aired Thursday afternoon an hysterical promo for far-left activist Al Sharpton’s PoliticsNation show that’s been relegated to Sunday mornings after low ratings at the previous weekday slot at 6:00 p.m. Eastern. The 30-second clip featured clips of Sharpton speaking to Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton with an MSNBC narrator proclaiming that, among other things, his program “is where a nation gets answers.”
Pamela Brown acted more like a surrogate for the Obama administration and its supporters on Thursday's CNN Newsroom as she interviewed Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. Brown mouthed the talking points of the LGBT activists regarding the recent administration policy directive on trangender students and school bathrooms/locker rooms: "The other side may say, well, who are you to say...what gender is — if it's...what is on someone's birth certificate; or what they identify with?" She later asked, "What about the protection of transgender people? LGBT advocates point out that transgender women are disproportionately the victims of sexual assault."
According to Gayle King, no one at the party she was at on Wednesday night cares about Hillary Clinton’s growing e-mail scandal. Talking to John Dickerson, the CBS This Morning co-host tried to minimize the damage with anecdotal evidence: “Put it in perspective. How big a deal is this, really? I was at an event last night and both Democrats and Republicans were quoting Bernie Sanders saying, ‘I'm sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails.’"
All three network morning shows on Thursday heralded President Obama blasting Donald Trump during a trip to Japan, declaring that world leaders were “rattled” by the Republican candidate. In stark contrast, when then-President Bush criticized then-Senator Obama’s views on foreign policy during an overseas trip in 2008, those same networks lined up Democrats to denounce the “political shot heard 'round the world.”
Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360 saw one of the rare instances in which the dominant media have aired audio of Hillary Clinton laughing about successfully helping a child rapist evade justice when she was a young defense attorney in the 1970s. But, even after a full report recalling the "aggressive" lengths Clinton undertook for her client, and her later being caught on audio tape laughing about her success while acknowledging she knew he was guilty, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin came to her defense.
After recalling that impugning the integrity of a rape victim was common practice in the legal profession in the 1970s, the liberal CNN analyst dismissed her laughing by likening it to telling "war stories." Toobin: "As for the laughing, you know, I didn't make out exactly what she was laughing about. It sounded like lawyers talking about war stories, which they do all the time. I just certainly didn't think anything on that tape suggested she was insensitive to women."
“Scathing.” “Stark.” The network morning shows on Thursday used troubling words for Hillary Clinton as her evolving e-mail scandal has reached a point where even ABC, CBS and NBC find it hard to minimize. All three morning shows trumpeted the news that a State Department inspector general report found Clinton violated federal rules by using a private server.
For the past couple days violence has erupted at Donald Trump rallies in New Mexico and California, resulting in police breaking out the riot gear. The cause? Violent leftists who can’t express themselves through peaceful protest. However, NBC and ABC handed the responsibility solely to Trump on Wednesday night. “Where Trump goes, unrest follows …This is the same scene that we are seeing play out in city after city across America,” NBC’s Katy Tur exaggerated.
The US State Department’s Inspector General released a report Wednesday what was highly damaging to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The report found that Clinton did not receive any approval to host a private server what so ever and there were two known attempted hackings. But you may not have learned the true severity of the situation of you were watching NBC’s and ABC’s evening news programs.
Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon conducted a number of interviews on Wednesday in reaction to the State Department Inspector General’s scathing rebuke of Clinton’s private e-mail account and server, but none measured up to FNC’s Special Report host Bret Baier and his calm, thorough dismantling of Fallon.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of Donald Trump making an issue of Hillary Clinton being an "enabler" of her husband, Bill Clinton, abusing women, host Don Lemon seemed unaware of the kinds of accusations made by women like Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey that Hillary Clinton had taken part in efforts to intimidate them into silence about sexual assaults.
At one point, Lemon cluelessly commented: "This is the first time that I think that I've heard of in any situation ... where the woman who was cheated on is now being accused of doing something wrong. Usually, women stand behind a woman who was cheated on rather than saying, 'Well, she enabled.' If someone cheated on me, I'm not going to say nice things about the person they cheated on with."
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs could barely contain his outrage over the latest examples of the media spinning for Hillary Clinton. Regarding a new MRC analysis that found the networks in 2016 have spent less than five minutes on the scandals engulfing the Clinton Foundation, Dobbs sputtered, “You’re talking about, basically, ten percent of that money going to good causes. That’s a hefty administrative charge and it makes you think, immediately, this is worthy of great inspection [by journalists].”
On Wednesday, the network morning shows all promoted violent left-wing protests outside a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico as a sign of trouble for the “controversial” GOP candidate and even provided a platform for rioters to justify their actions. At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer breathlessly declared: “Breaking overnight, protests turn violent at a Trump rally in New Mexico. Demonstrators knocking down barriers and throwing rocks.”
