Latest from Kristine Marsh

Cable news and the networks have been hard at work trying to demonize Mississippi’s GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith as a callous racist who wants to bring back the KKK’s reign of terror in the South from decades past. After liberal activists added to the drama by putting nooses on the state legislature lawn, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and her liberal guests tried to blame Hyde-Smith for the stunt, bashing her as “sick” “scary” and “disgraceful” while even urging Mississippi voters in the runoff election, to vote for her Democrat opponent, Mike Espy who is embattled in his own controversy.



Monday at the Hot Topics table, Senator Bernie Sanders joined the hosts of The View for an interview that was supposed to be about his book, but turned out instead to be about criticizing President Trump.



Joe Scarborough’s past came back to bite him this week, as he was called out for hypocrisy in having Al Sharpton on his show to talk about racism. As a former GOP Congressman, the MSNBC host had quite the different take on Sharpton than he did while serving in Congress.



Tuesday on The View, the liberal hosts were thrilled by the news that Ivanka Trump used her own personal email address to correspond about White House business. Tying it to Hillary Clinton’s private email server debacle, Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar attacked their conservative co-hosts for pointing out it wasn’t the same as Clinton’s email problem.



The panel on CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning used the Ivanka Trump email story to fawn over Hillary Clinton, admitting regret over giving it “too much” attention during the 2016 election cycle. The journalists revealed their bias in calling it a “bogus” story to begin with, complaining that they probably helped seal her defeat by giving it attention.



All three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) ignored California Democrat Congressman and possible 2020 presidential contender Eric Swalwell’s incendiary tweets this past weekend calling for the federal government to “nuke” American citizens who objected to the federal government confiscating their firearms.



On Sunday night’s miniseries The Clinton Affair, A&E took potshots at conservatives in their attempt to create a sympathetic portrayal of Bill and Hillary Clinton. While praising Clinton as a feminist president, the network gave soundbites to Democrats attacking anyone on the right who dared to criticize the political couple for their numerous scandals.



Friday on The View, the hosts slammed conservatives as racists that were “obsessed” with the media’s favorite Democrat socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While they brought up the topic because of a stupid tweet from a conservative writer which mocked Cortez for her clothing choices, they used that tweet to accuse the entire conservative movement of having a racist agenda and obsession with the new congresswoman.



ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel was next in line to assist former First Lady Michelle Obama in promoting her new memoir. On Thursday night’s show, the liberal host used that opportunity to beg Obama to convince her husband to enter politics again, comparing him to Superman and President Trump to his evil arch nemesis, Lex Luthor.



 

Thursday on ABC’s The View, co-host Joy Behar slammed Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards show for staying out of politics. As nearly every entertainment awards show has made itself part of the resistance against President Trump, Behar was sorely disappointed to see this was one show where Trump’s name wasn’t mentioned.

 


CNN defended its absurd move to sue President Trump for revoking reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass, by bringing on a former Obama staffer to tout the network’s credibility. On CNN Tonight November 13, host Don Lemon talked with Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton and NYU law professor Burt Neuborne, about the lawsuit, with all three agreeing that the media treated Obama with the same scrutiny they have with Trump.



You would think ABC was getting royalties off of Michelle Obama’s new book for all the time they’ve spent promoting it. Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts spent Tuesday morning in Chicago with Obama and her brother before a live audience where she gave a friendly interview to the former first lady about her new memoir, after devoting an entire 20/20 special to the book on Sunday.



ABC’s 20/20 special on Michelle Obama Sunday night was about what you’d expect from the same network who hailed the “transcendent, communal joy” and “dancing in the streets” after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008. While just a few weeks ago, ABC’s 20/20 on Melania Trump spent nearly every minute on controversies and strife in the White House and their marriage, this episode on the Obamas was a complete 180 in tone and content, with not even a brief mention of Obama's own controversies.



CNN contributor and American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan appeared on Thursday’s The View, to join the hosts in complaining about President Trump’s treatment of the press, after Wednesday’s combative press conference. Co-host Joy Behar took the opportunity to bash Trump as a racist because he told Ryan to sit down during that presser, after she repeatedly tried to interrupt another reporter. The next day, the hosts continued the race-baiting.



In anticipation for her new memoir to be released next week, the networks spent ample time Friday morning promoting Michelle Obama’s book, where the former First Lady blames Trump for the violence happening across the country and claims that his rhetoric endangered her family’s lives.



Yes, you read that correctly. The lunacy of ABC’s The View knows no bounds as liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin turned the suggestion that CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta “assaulted” a White House aide yesterday, into the young aide’s fault. Citing her legal experience, Hostin claimed that the aide was actually in the wrong and could be pressed by Acosta for charges of battery.

 


All three networks worried about the “fate” of the Mueller investigation with news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired yesterday. On Thursday’s morning news programs, anchors and reporters tore into his replacement as acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, for comments he has made in the past criticizing the Mueller investigation. They also touted Democrats like Chuck Schumer fearmongering, calling it a “constitutional crisis.”

 


After all three networks gushed over pop star Taylor Swift endorsing the Democrat in Tennessee’s Senate race a few weeks ago, they largely ignored the GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn completely demolishing her opponent in last night’s midterm election.

 


The morning after the midterms, the media was busy celebrating Democrats winning the majority in the House of Representatives. Despite this win, many of the media-hyped Democrats running for office lost their races last night, much to the chagrin of the news media who blamed everything from racism to voter fraud. But over on Good Morning America, ABC tried to spin Ted Cruz’s win over media heartthrob Beto O’Rourke in Texas as a sign of “hope” for 2020.



Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the co-hosts talked about the midterm elections today and President Trump’s statement in an interview Monday that he “regrets” his tone hasn’t been softer. While the hosts bashed the remark as an inauthentic way to reach women voters, co-host Joy Behar turned her nose up at women who supported Trump, characterizing them as stupid.
