On Sunday's What's Eating America?, hosted by celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern, the second episode of the new food-focused MSNBC series engaged in scaremongering with predictions about the food industry being hurt by climate change, and indicted "deniers" for not believing climate change is caused by human activity.
Broad consensus on Morning Joe that to stop Bernie Sanders, Bloomberg should walk the plank and let Joe Biden compete with Sanders one-on-one. The "be gone, Bloomie" scenario was predicated on the assumption that Biden will handily win the South Carolina primary this Saturday.
Wednesday night, Vice President Mike Pence became a target of liberals in the media, after President Trump announced he would be in charge of leading the U.S. response to the coronavirus crisis. Cable news pundits sneered that the Christian Pence was “anti-science” while late night hosts like ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel also took shots at Pence’s faith.
Shortly before President Trump addressed the nation on Wednesday to explain what his administration was doing to prepare for the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19), ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News decided to give a megaphone to Democratic lawmakers so they could suggest the administration wasn’t taking the virus seriously.
Senator Bernie Sanders’ rise to Democratic primary frontrunner, fueled by significant Latino support en route to a smashing victory in the Nevada caucuses, prompts an examination of the role that the nation’s leading Spanish-language networks have had therein.
The Trump campaign decided to ruffle some feathers Wednesday with the horribly-biased New York Times, announcing that it was suing the paper for having “knowingly published false and defamatory statements of and concerning” President Trump and the campaign following “a systematic pattern of bias.” Filed with the New York State Supreme Court, the blistering eight-page suit centers on a March 27, 2019 column by former Times editor Max Frankel that alleged that the campaign had formally colluded with Russia
President Trump’s state visit to India received less than a single minute of evening news coverage from broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). But back in 2010, those same networks dedicated more than 20 times as much coverage (18.5 minutes) to then-President Obama’s India trip, often making it the top item of their nightly newscasts.
At the opening of Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Anthony Mason touted a new poll conducted by the network immediately following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate.

News broke on Wednesday that ABC News journalist David Wright had been caught in a new Project Veritas video, exposing the reporter as a self-admitted “socialist” who hates his own network. He has since been suspended. A look back at the socialist reporter's coverage of the socialist Bernie Sanders finds that Wright fawned over the candidate as “on fire” and fighting a political revolution.”
On Wednesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and other conservative leaders released an open letter to Attorney General Bill Barr. The letter highlighted the deep concerns they have about tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook and the need for transparency and a respect for free speech.
ABC News has suspended correspondent David Wright, after he was caught on tape making damning statements about his employer. In a newly-released Project Veritas video, Wright bashed ABC for only caring about profits and ratings instead of the “truth.” He also admitted his network regularly spikes pro-Trump stories and doesn’t care about voters. In another shocking part, the ABC reporter also boasts he is a socialist.
During a live edition of the Late Show following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate, host Stephen Colbert applauded the candidates for ignoring moderator and CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell throughout much of the raucous event. He also ironically warned that “you can’t listen to a TV person.”
