CNN's New Day Sunday gave an unchallenged forum to a group of children who are plaintiffs in an environmental lawsuit alleging that the federal government and fossil fuel industry are in "violation of the fundamental constitutional rights of young people and all future generations." As two of the children and one legal counsel -- Julia Olson of Our Children's Trust -- appeared on the show, among other questions, CNN co-host Christi Paul sympathetically posed: "If you could say one thing to the people listening who have questions about what they're causing in the environment, what would you like to say to them today?"
In an almost stunning moment of clarity during Sunday’s Meet the Press, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admitted in a rant that the media were targeting President Trump. “This president has gale-force winds against him. He comes in with the media killing him every day,” he told NBC moderator Chuck Todd, who was obsessing over the President’s approval numbers. “The New York Times does enterprise pieces, four or five a day against him.”
President Donald Trump sat down with CBS’s John Dickerson for an interview about the first 100 days of his presidency, which aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. In between talking about the serious topics, the President took shots at the media, including his host. “You know, it is very funny when the fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you,” he told Dickerson. “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation,’ but, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.
On Saturday's AM Joy, viewers could witness a near caricature of a group of liberals talking politics in the form of host Joy Reid, former MSNBC political analyst Jimmy Williams, Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah, and Karine Jean-Pierre of MoveOn.org, as the group pined for "cradle to the grave" guaranteed health care as a "civil right" and fretted "Jim Crow for health care."
TBS’s resident radical leftist Samantha Bee made an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday to speak with her friend/host Jake Tapper about her “alternative” White House Correspondents Dinner. During their discussion, Tapper dredged up a New York Times opinion piece from September 2016 warning Hillary Clinton of her “Samantha Bee problem.” The column notes that not only Bee is the problem but all stuck up liberals as well. Bee laughed and denied such a problem existed.
Most readers of NewsBusters and consumers of cable news are used to liberal media meltdowns since November 8. However, that’s not to say they’re any less enjoyable. Saturday night featured another temper tantrum by CNN with anchors and guests labeling Trump’s 100 Days rally in Pennsylvania a “deeply disturbing” and “stunning” speech by a “moral midget.”
In the minutes leading up to their live coverage of the White House Correspondents Dinner, CNN turned to media reporter Brian Stelter, who caused unintentional laughter when he claimed that the journalists inside the dinner had no political interests in their Trump coverage. They're "just trying to do their best work." He slammed the president's speech Saturday night as "insidious" and "poisonous," even as he admitted it was nothing new. He's perpetually outraged.
During a rally packed with devoted supporters at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, President Donald Trump spent extensive portions of his first 100 days speech torching the news media for their liberal tilt, using facts like the blockbuster April 19 Media Research Center study.
Saturday's CBS Weekend News filed a report in which correspondent Paula Reid fretted that some of the illegal immigrants rounded up for deportation had only been convicted of drunk driving, even though such activity is dangerous criminal behavior that claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year. And, even though the report ran a soundbite of President Donald Trump vowing to deport "drug dealers" and "criminal aliens," Reid seemed to think that deporting nonviolent offenders like drunk drivers was somehow contradicting this promise as she complained that arrests were "raising concerns."
On Friday's CBS Evening News, and again on Saturday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Mark Strassmann filed a report highlighting a newly formed organization of liberal women in Georgia who are working to "turn the red state blue." He also forwarded their views without challenge as he recalled their complaints that President Donald Trump has been pursuing policies that are "anti-immigrant, anti-women and un-American."
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Friday, former Obama State Department official and Time magazine editor Richard Stengel hurled a wild accusation at President Trump, claiming the commander-in-chief guilty of “harassment” against United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.
In a hostile exchange with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday, substitute co-host Amy Robach first demanded that the Justice Department chief respond to a local Democratic politician in New York accusing him of being anti-immigrant and then put words his mouth to make it seem like the smear was true.
