It is not the first time a prominent media outlet has been forced to retract a video piece as a result of misleading and erroneous editing. CBS News was the latest to be caught in the act of disseminating shoddy news packaging in the form of an overflowing Italian hospital video within a story about New York City Covid-19 cases.
In the manipulative mind of the media, granting President Trump any semblance of credit would be far too much of an ask. Doctoring and misconstruing footage of President Trump is the M.O. of the press even during times of crisis, as proven by an article published Monday on MSNBC’s website by Steve Benen.
There is rarely a time when Trump scorning comes to a halt on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The leftist host has continued to stoke animus towards the President throughout the coronavirus crisis, most recently on Thursday night’s “minilogue” during an interview with former Vice President and 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden. Kimmel even pushed a wacky conspiracy theory about “postponing the 2020 election.
While slamming the President for taking economic considerations into play in the fight against the coronavirus, reporters claim it is Trump himself who is politicizing the pandemic. NBC journalist Jonathan Allen seemed to lack this sense of self-awareness as he crafted his latest hit piece, published Wednesday to NBCNews.com.
CNN spent most of Wednesday night trashing the president's address to the nation on the Coronavirus. CNN’s Chris Cuomo proved that there’s nothing Donald Trump can do that will meet with the liberal network’s approval. The host offered a scathing review of President Trump’s Oval Office talk.
Here is a fun riddle for you. Which is more obnoxious, a lefty late night host posturing as a politician, or a Democrat politician assuming the role of a lefty late-night host? Unfortunately, the teaser is no longer one of abstract concept but a reality, brought to life by former Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s stint as a fill in host on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The Democratic candidates can count on a warm and fuzzy interview wherever they venture on the late-night show circuit. Bernie Sanders dropped by The Tonight Show on NBC on Wednesday to discuss a slew of matters, all of which included jabs at President Trump.
Eager to join the rest of the media in politicizing the coronavirus, on Monday’s CBS Late Show, liberal host Stephen Colbert sought to use the disease to attack President Trump. Colbert commenced the thrashing session with an opening monologue in which he skewered Trump over his response to the coronavirus:
Perhaps no one engages in hypocrisy more than a member of the media elite. Sooner or later, all of the “woke” societal causes championed by the press will boomerang back to their detriment, as was the case with former MSNBC host Chris Matthews. On Friday’s Real Time, HBO host Bill Maher granted mercy to the ex-Hardball host and excused Matthews's improper behavior.
It never ceases to amaze that the very people who deny fundamental biology accuse their political adversaries of rejecting scientific discoveries. This is precisely the behavior that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and host Seth Meyers engaged in on Thursday’s Late Night.
The oozing admiration for Democratic politicians is never so tangible in the press as when Hillary Clinton hits the talk-show circuit. Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s Tonight Show shared in the media acclaim for Clinton’s newest Hulu Docu-series, “Hillary.”
The leftist factions within the media seem to be engaging in a sort of circular firing squad as of late, amid all the chaos and division in the Democratic presidential race. The most recent opponents to square off being CBS late night host Stephen Colbert and a portion of MSNBC. All In host Chris Hayes absorbed the heat on behalf of his network during an appearance on Wednesday’s Late Show.
For many in the media, it seems as though words are lacking to adequately communicate their over-encompassing contempt for President Trump -- at least words in English. Thus, some have resorted to formulating their own terms in foreign languages. One of those individuals being New Yorker columnist Susan Glasser, who paid a visit to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night.
The media relationship with the Russian collusion narrative is akin to the ex-boyfriend a high school adolescent cannot seem to move on from. It is over. No one is in need of hearing this dosage of cold-hard truth more than the individuals at MSNBC, as proven by Friday's Morning Joe.
The media are perspiring as a result of all the fire at Wednesday night's Democratic debate. Chief among those quaking in their anchor chairs are the leftist crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, who hosted one of the candidates, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on Thursday morning’s program.
In today’s installment of media memory loss, the press seemed to blank on former President Obama’s clemency record and the praise they heaped upon him during his presidency. Early Wednesday morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and political analyst Jason Johnson defamed President Trump as a ‘dictator’ for exercising his constitutional right of granting pardons and commutations.
Roses are red, violets are blue, Trump is still President no matter how much it annoys you. The “you” in this case is far-left comedian Jim Carrey. He appeared on Tuesday’s Conan to promote his bizarre, unhinged, graphic “paintings” of Donald Trump.
There seems to be little Democrats adore more than politicians of their own ilk who refuse to take the loss following a defeat at the ballot box. Among those politicians being former Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who appeared on Tuesday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers.
As the 2020 Democratic presidential field dwindled, so did their apparent prospects at winning the election come November. Friday was witness to the latest installment in banal Democratic Presidential debates and even their greatest allies in the media could not help but take note of its dull nature. So much so, that ABC (the network who hosted the event) shifted into worrisome mode once the debate concluded.
On Tuesday night, during a special live edition of the CBS Late Show following President Trump's State of the Union address, host Stephen Colbert was joined by Washington Post “journalists” Carol Leonnig and Phillip Rucker. Colbert and his fellow Trump loathers proceeded to trash the President's speech and fear for the future of the republic.
