Since the redacted Mueller report was released two weeks ago, TV journalists have been among the biggest advocates for impeaching President Trump. Yet curiously during the late 1990s, journalists were among the loudest voices against impeaching then-President Clinton.
Saturday marks 20 years since the tragic Columbine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado. Liberal journalists have already begun their retrospectives that included requisite attacks on the NRA and gun owners. The following is a look back at the most biased and ugliest broadsides in the weeks following the April 20, 1999 Columbine shooting:.
They just can’t let it go. In the 10 days since the Mueller report ended the liberal media fantasy of “Russian Collusion” in a fizzle, liberal journalists remain in denial. The following is a compilation of libs in the media still crying about collusion.
Many in the media remain in denial about the Mueller report findings, as they’ve collectively screamed “Nothing is over, until we decide it is!” From clinging to ongoing Democratic investigations to spouting conspiracy theories about a cover-up, liberal journalists and hosts have spent the last few days refusing to accept there was nothing to their precious “Russian Collusion” dreams. The following are the 10 worst examples of liberals in denial as they curse the Mueller Report conclusions:
In the wake of the announcement on Sunday that Robert Mueller “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia,” many in the news media are visibly upset with the Special Counsel for not being more aggressively anti-Trump. On Monday’s New Day, for example, CNN legal analyst Laura Coates exclaimed that it was “really atrocious” that Mueller refused to make a legal conclusion about whether the President had committed obstruction of justice, while over on NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted: “Is that a cop out? Isn’t this his job?”
The Sunday afternoon letter from Attorney General Bill Barr on the Mueller report has rocked the political world and burst more than a few bubbles in the liberal media, most notably their years-long insistence that the President and/or his team colluded with Russia. Some journalists have conceded this reality, while others are mimicking Japanese soldiers still fighting World War II in 1971.
In the past few weeks we’ve seen the media get excited for Beto O’Rourke while also blaming Donald Trump for the actions of a crazed shooter. Vanity Fair sent Joe Hagan to pen a cover story on Beto that left the writer giddy about a “gleam in his eye” as the “too innocent to be a politician” began his presidential campaign. Conversely, journalists raged at Donald Trump’s reaction to the shooting in New Zealand, a tragedy they all but blamed Trump for. CNN host John Berman indicted Trump for using the same “language” of the killer. The following are just a few of the worst moments of media outrage from the last month.
Failed Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke announced his presidential candidacy today, despite his last political campaign ending in a loss to Ted Cruz in 2018. But who needs a stretch of political victories to build momentum for a presidential run when you have gale force winds – in the form of liberal media hype – behind your back?
A “partisan” “witch hunt” that is wasting “taxpayer millions” is not how liberal journalists are describing current Democratic congressional investigations into Donald Trump’s finances and alleged Russian collusion. No, those words are strictly reserved for when Republicans are investigating Democratic scandals that involved Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton. The following are just few examples of liberal journalists singing a different tune about Congressional investigations when the targets were Democrats, as culled from the MRC archives.
Phony racially-motivated attacks and Democrats being caught in blackface were just some of the controversies that liberal journalists and celerities actually blamed on Donald Trump and his Wall-endorsing, red hat-wearing, supporters this past month.
Bernie is back and the journalists that celebrated the socialist Sanders in 2016 are pushing him again. On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Terry Moran cooed “He made democratic socialism cool for millions of voters.” When he ran in 2016, instead of laughing off the candidacy of a candidate who is so left he spent his honeymoon in the USSR, liberal anchors and reporters couldn’t contain their excitement over how Sanders could energize the Democratic base.The following are just a few examples from the MRC’s archive of liberal reporters, hosts and celebrities championing the out and proud socialist.
The media are using the one year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida shooting to push for more gun control. It’s something they started doing immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.The following is a collection of the media’s ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
