As the coronavirus crisis deepens, the media continue to sink lower in their vile attacks on Donald Trump and conservatives. Liberal journalists like NBC Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd have questioned if “there is blood on the President’s hands?” New Yorker editor David Remnick charged Trump’s “narcissism” and “lack of empathy” has “led to disaster.” The following are the most recent examples of journalists displaying their rage against Trump and conservatives during the coronavirus crisis.



It’s been nearly a week since a former Joe Biden staffer leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them. In that same time period, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.



From Jimmy Kimmel yelling from his home at the “racist” Trump to “shut up” to Cher condemning the President as a “LIAR & MURDERER” the following are the most obnoxious examples of celebrities spewing their hatred against Trump during the coronavirus crisis: 



Amid hours upon hours of coronavirus coverage, one thing that’s rarely heard: any criticism of how the communist government in Beijing handled the outbreak. MRC's analysis of ABC, CBS and NBC's weekday evening newscasts found out of 634 minutes of total coronavirus coverage, our analysts found only 3 minutes, 14 seconds — less than one percent — discussed topics unflattering to the Chinese government.



He’s MSNBC and CNN’s favorite Republican, he’s so-called “GOP strategist” Rick Wilson and he hates you -- especially if you are a “ten-toothed rube” “idolater” of Donald Trump.



As the liberal media were busy trying to gaslight the world into thinking that alternate names for the coronavirus (Wuhan Virus or Chinese Coronavirus) were racist, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News sought to help out China’s propaganda campaign and claim that they “attacked” the virus. In reality, China spent critical weeks pouring more resources into trying to stop information about the virus from spreading rather than trying to stop the virus itself.



One of the lead debate moderators for CNN’s Sunday night debate is Univision anchor Jorge Ramos – a journalist so opposed to Donald Trump he was actually thrown out of a 2015 campaign event for being so rude. Since then, Ramos and his network Univision have railed against Trump on immigration and fueled the rise of the most left-wing candidate in the race – the openly socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. 



Yet another Biden family member is in trouble and once again the nets are doing their best to bury the scandal. On Monday morning Politico broke the news that the FBI “raided a health care business linked to Joe Biden’s brother in late January.” The report alleged James Biden may have engaged in fraud and traded on his familial connection to the former Vice President. This bombshell report has yet to be reported on ABC, CBS, NBC’s evening or morning shows. 



For the month of February, 2020, MRC Latino analyzed coverage of the 2020 Democratic primaries. The results showed that Bernie Sanders dominated coverage on both Univision and Telemundo, garnering nearly twice as much coverage as the rest of the Democratic field combined.



In just the last few days Biden botched an attempt to recite the Declaration of Independence and confused his wife with his sister. MRC analysts looked at the Big Three evening and morning shows (March 2 evening - March 5 morning) and found only CBS This Morning (59 total seconds) reported on the latest Biden bloopers. Even then, they just relegated them to in their “Eye-Opener” montage



If a viewer took a few moments to pour a cup of coffee or make a bowl of cereal Thursday morning, they easily could have missed the scant coverage on ABC’s Good Morning America of Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer threatening Supreme Court justices – news that received just 27 seconds of air time. Meanwhile, acrobat Nik Wallenda’s high-wire walk across a volcano got 5 minutes and 47 seconds, over 12 times more.



For more than four months, you couldn't watch TV news without hearing journalists talk about how impeaching Donald Trump was necessary for the health of the Republic. But since the liberal attempt to remove the President ended in failure, the same media talking heads are fretting about how Trump's acquittal has created an “emboldened” Chief Executive who threatens the rule of law “like never before.”
