The pilot episode of FOX’s new, racially charged show, Shots Fired, fans the flames of anti-police sentiment with its depiction of the Black Lives Matter world where black people are disproportionately mistreated by police and the police force is run by corrupt white men.
Wednesday was the third and last day of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s marathon confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch. The Big Three networks’ (ABC, CBS, and NBC) evening news programs buried the story of Tuesday’s hearing after Senate Democrats failed to trip him up. But for Wednesday’s hearing, they ran up the white flag, with CBS and NBC running very short news briefs while ABC failed to mention Gorsuch nor the hearing at all.
The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying alleged rape of a teenage girl in a Washington D.C. suburb high school bathroom by two men, including one here in the U.S. illegally. Instead, the pathetic liberal media that’s shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving over 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang raped a female student.
On Tuesday's Tavis Smiley show on PBS, as New York magazine's Andrew Sullivan appeared as a guest to discuss current political events, host Smiley at one point fretted that -- because Republicans denied President Barack Obama the chance to appoint Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court -- they were "trampling" on the Constitution, and oddly asked if they might ignore other parts of the Constitution like the abolition of slavery or the right for women to vote. Suggesting that Republicans violated the Constitution in blocking Judge Garland, Smiley whined: "It was, to be sure, a violation of democratic norms, but it was more than that. To me, it was a trampling on the Constitution by the Republican party who did not give Mr. Garland a hearing. ... He was obligated to put forth that nomination, and they were obligated to take it up, I believe, and vote up or down. So it wasn't just a violation or an abrogation of norms, it was a trampling on one of our most precious documents."
Disgraced anchor Brian Williams, who has a history of not telling the truth, offered a skeptical take on the claim by a Republican Congressman that Donald Trump officials were surveilled during the presidential transition. Regarding the assertions made by Congressman Devin Nunes, Williams explained in a doubting tone: “[Nunes] says he is now in receipt of information. It's intelligence information that he found alarming enough to go down to the White House and brief the President. [This is] not traditionally the role of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.”
Gosh, Senator Cleaver, your questions are so insightful and interesting that I wish this confirmation hearing could go on forever! Unless a nominee is a complete idiot, he (or she) will be incredibly polite during his confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate. It is hardly the place to display a Fonzi ("Happy Days") attitude. However, Dana Milbank in the March 21 Washington Post suggests that the politeness demonstrated by Neil Gorsuch during his confirmation hearing for Supreme Court justice could be insincere thus making him a judicial version of Eddie Haskell from "Leave It to Beaver." If you are one of the small handful of people still unaware of Eddie Haskell, he was the young character who displayed insincere polite flattery towards adults to cover up his true smart aleck attitude.
During MSNBC’s live breaking news coverage of the suspected terrorist attacks in London on Wednesday, NBC News reporter Matt Bradley reported via phone from the British capital and was more worried about the violence helping conservative politicians than he was about the victims: “We've seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.”
Liberal journalists on the three networks, Wednesday, dutifully did the bidding of Democratic senators trying to take down Neil Gorsuch. ABC, CBS and NBC all promoted the partisan effort to “keep [Gorsuch] on the griddle” and force the nominee to prove he’s “not a political pawn.”
During the 10 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, correspondent Chris Jansing openly cheered on Democratic California Senator Diane Feinstein for attacking Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch early in day three of his confirmation hearing: “Dianne Feinstein certainly went after him on a number of issues that are critical to progressives. Abortion, euthanasia at the top of the list.”
After several days of silence, Univision finally got around to covering the horrific rape at Rockville (Maryland) High School. In so doing, the network aired a stunning admission that blows its liberal narrative and immigration agenda completely out of the water.
With the GOP’s new health care bill limping into Thursday’s vote in the House especially after the brutal Congressional Budget Office report, the media are taking every chance to give it one more kick. But during Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, commentator David Gergen claimed that the CBO had put out an even more damaging report. “We’ve just learned in last 24 hours the Congressional Budget Office says that: if you let this bill -- Obamacare, just die, you will have more people with insurance than if you put repeal and replace into place,” he claimed. But the kicker is the CBO did not put out such a report.
On Tuesday, the crazy train on MSNBC’s Hardball was firing on all cylinders. Host Chris Matthews was in rare form as he compared President Trump to O.J. Simpson and suggested that journalists (especially newspapers) should be automatically believed because, supposedly, no other group of humanity tells the truth better than journalists.
