On Saturday's New Day on CNN, during a seven and a half minute segment dealing with Ohio's "Heartbeat Bill" that seeks to ban abortion after a heartbeat can be detected, partisan phraseology associated with the liberal side of the issue were repeatedly used by the various on-air CNN personalities who commented on the issue, while the only couple of times when the word choice preferred by conservatives could be heard was in a soundbite from a pro-life activist when the word "pro-life" was used.
Hollywood's latest gun control measure doubles down on a failed Clinton campaign trick. Hillary Clinton nearly threw out her shoulder playing the Gender Card during her recent White House. It didn’t work. Now, the minds behind the Twitter account for “Miss Sloane” are milking one of Clinton’s failed feminist memes.
CBS Evening News was the sole Big Three evening newscast on Friday to cover the bomb theat on a Trump construction project in the South American country of Uruguay. Scott Pelley devoted ten seconds to the threat, which forced the evacuation of the planned high rise. ABC's World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News didn't cover the evacuation on their Friday broadcasts. However, both programs devoted news briefs to actor Kirk Douglas's 100th birthday.
On Friday's New Day, during a debate between liberal Daily Beast contributor Dean Obeidallah and conservative CNN political commentator Ben Ferguson about whether incoming Donald Trump administration members are anti-Islam, CNN co-anchor Chris Cuomo suggested at one point that many whites, feeling like they have been "victimized" by Islam, supported Trump because they think "now it's our turn" to do so back against Muslims.
Cuomo's comment came as Obeidallah had just been blaming Trump's election victory on a recent reports of increased attacks against Muslims. Ferguson countered that there have been many crimes perpetrated by Muslims as well, as he tried to put into perspective that there have been indefensible actions committed in both directions, causing Cuomo to jump in and suggest that Trump's election to the presidency was motivated by a desire for revenge against Muslims.
Amidst the media’s obsession with supposedly stopping fake news, MSNBC Live aired a fake news story of their own as the network informed viewers that “Fox News had their Christmas party” at President-elect Donald Trump’s Washington, D.C. hotel. “I mean, think about the hotel in Washington right now. The RNC is having their Christmas party there. Fox News had their Christmas party there. That doesn't feel a little hanky,” host Stephanie Ruhle claimed.
As Donald Trump announced another cabinet pick, all three networks on Friday touted liberal talking points on Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder. But it was Today journalist Peter Alexander who chided the Carl’s Jr. CEO for his company’s racy ads. NBC is the same network that devoted an entire week to promoting the graphic, sex-drenched movie Fifty Shades of Grey.
On Friday, NBC’s Today devoted a full report to stoking fears that Donald Trump’s criticism of individual businesses could ruin people’s investments. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle appeared on the morning show to warn viewers: “Imagine a tweet, a single tweet losing you money. 140 characters could cost you 140 bucks maybe 1,400, maybe more. That is how powerful the president's voice is, it can move markets.”
Another day another leftist freak-out over an appointment by President-Elect Donald Trump from the Big Three networks. The liberal outrage Thursday was over Trump’s selection of fast food CEO Andrew Puzder to head up the Labor Department. “Continuing on the workers' front, Mr. Trump named as his new labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, a fast-food chain CEO and anti-regulation crusader who says raising the minimum wage is bad for business,” reported Dean Reynolds on CBS Evening News.
CNN continued to stoke fear of President-Elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on The Lead Thursday. “’At the risk of being dramatic. Scott Pruitt is an existential threat to the planet.’ That's quite a charge,” host Jake Tapper said, as he read a tweet from Dan Pfeiffer, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. He was speaking to reporter Rene Marsh who brushed way Republican grievances with the agency before giving a report smearing Pruitt.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's New Day to talk about his CNN special on President Barack Obama, CNN's Fareed Zakaria dismissively suggested that the number of people killed by terrorism in the U.S. in the past decade is "trivial," and recalled that President Obama has a history of pointing out that "more Americans drown in their bathtubs every year than are killed by international terrorists."
New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo on Thursday continued the media freak out over Donald Trump picking a climate change doubter to run the Environmental Protection Agency. He even outrageously compared those with similar beliefs to past opposition of interracial marriage.
On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello boosted liberal criticism of President-Elect Donald Trump picking several retired generals to his Cabinet. She first asked former Obama Cabinet member Janet Napolitano, "Democrats — they're worried that Mr. Trump has picked so many generals....Does that concern you?" The anchor later hyped that "some...say a militarized view of America got us into...the Iraq War. It created problems at Abu Ghraib. It created the mess that is now Guantanamo Bay. So, do they have a point?"
