The premier of former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee’s TBS program Full Frontal arrived on Monday night and for liberals seeking more anti-conservative rants disguised as humor, Bee provided just that as she berated Iowa caucus winner Ted Cruz as a “fish-faced, horeshit salesman” while playing with a noose.
Monday’s CBS Evening News continued to bask in the supposed glory of CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King’s pre-Super Bowl interview with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama with additional excerpts and anchor Scott Pelley gushing over the “terrific interview.” Of course, CBS continued to make no mention of King’s connections to the Obamas as both a personal friend and donor to Obama’s candidacy (as my colleague Scott Whitlock thoroughly chronicled in a post that can be found here).
Discussing rumors of a possible Hillary Clinton campaign shakeup in an attempt to right the ship after a close race in Iowa and what looks to be like a Sanders blowout in New Hampshire, CNN’s Anderson Cooper on his eponymous program tonight made a humorous comparison to how struggling cable TV executives handle programs that just aren’t cutting it in the ratings.
In the latest example of double standards in the world of liberal media bias, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt used his one-on-one interview on Monday with Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio to boast of the “broad criticism of that Saturday debate performance” and calls that he’s “MarcoRobot” despite expressing concern to Hillary Clinton on January 29 about any critiques leveled her way.
New on February 8: Chris Jansing, senior White House correspondent for NBC News, saying on MSNBC that it’s “crazy” for young women to not support Hillary Clinton as the first female president.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews is enjoying beating the dead horse that is Marco Rubio's repetitive answers on Saturday night's debate. But in doing so, Matthews himself is continually trotting out the same talking points about "short-term memory loss" and sounding like a character from the 1982 movie Blade Runner.
While all three network morning shows touted Hillary Clinton’s campaign attacking Bernie Sanders supporters for “sexism,” only NBC’s Today mentioned prominent Clinton surrogate and “feminist icon” Gloria Steinem employing sexist language to attack young women supporting Sanders.
A testy Chris Christie reminded George Stephanopoulos of his political “operative” past on Monday, hitting the Good Morning America co-host for bringing up the New Jersey governor’s low poll ratings. The former aide to Bill Clinton quizzed, “You have invested so much time and money in New Hampshire, though...still in sixth place, if you can't win there, where can you win?”
Chris Matthews was on Morning Joe Monday to share his precious insight into the New Hampshire primary coming up on Tuesday. As part of his segment he was asked about how he would historically categorize Marco Rubio’s seemingly embarrassing debate performance the Saturday prior. “I put it with Blade Runner.” Matthews said.
When CBS News assigned Gayle King, a donor, supporter and friend of the Obama family, to interview the President and his wife before the Super Bowl, the network guaranteed one of the softest interviews in the history of this administration. Asking not one serious question on Sunday, the journalist instead highlighted her favorite photo of the President and his wife. King also brought up dance moves, relationship issues and Super Bowl predictions.
Comedian Anthony Anderson mocked conservative actress Stacey Dash during his opening monologue at Friday's NAACP Image Awards: "What the hell is she doing? Doesn't she know that the Fox network is using her? She's just an Ann Coulter dipped in butterscotch. That's all she is!" Anderson added, "Baby, don't let them use you! Come back to the black people; and get back to work in some of those beautiful 'C' movies that you used to do."
Monday’s CBS This Morning applauded Beyonce using the “global stage” of the Super Bowl halftime show “to showcase the political message of her latest single” and hailed the singer’s new album making “a powerful statement on both racism and police brutality.”
