Latest from Kristine Marsh

ABC was the only network Monday morning to report on Tom Brokaw’s comments that offended both the right and left on Meet the Press Sunday. During a discussion on the border wall, Brokaw argued Hispanics needed to do a better job assimilating, and said Republicans didn’t want interracial marriages. That second part didn’t faze ABC, but the first part made anchor Cecilia Vega very upset.



It seems NBC is splitting its time between running a smear campaign against the Covington kids and aggressively pushing its climate change agenda. Thursday, Al Roker profusely “thanked” Americans on the Today show for their increasing concern for the environment, and later that evening, fellow NBC host Chuck Todd boasted about censoring opposing viewpoints on his climate change special back in December, while visiting the Daily Show.



The mood at ABC’s The View alternated between sheer glee over Roger Stone’s arrest Friday morning, and anger over the government shutdown. Friday co-host Ana Navarro gushed that furloughed workers should essentially dine and dash at Trump property hotels to show their disgust for the administration.



Always logical left-wing director Michael Moore was so distraught about the government shutdown that he told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Thursday people should just abandon their duties to the government, including paying taxes. Moore went on to tell people not to "commit crimes" because the "FBI wasn't getting paid."



NBC News’s Think opinion website was plastered with hateful op-eds against the right Thursday targetting everyone from the Covington kids to Karen Pence. The Guardian’s Noah Berlatsky revealed the media's end game in his op-ed for the site,   mainly that the truth of what occurred doesn't really matter--this was all about the Make America Great Again hat students were wearing.



Just when you think The View can’t get any more unwatchable, they bring on CNN journalists as their guests. On Thursday's show, host Chris Cuomo came on to talk about pretty much everything in the news cycle except Covington. He even defended Buzzfeed for their inaccurate anti-Trump report released last week, while defending his own network as having no bias but slamming Fox News for its own.



Princeton professor and professional race-baiter for MSNBC Eddie Glaude spoke with host Craig Melvin on MSNBC Live Wednesday morning to bash the Covington kids as symptoms of white privilege. Yes, getting your name, image, school and family smeared all over television and online, while receiving death threats is apparently a symptom of “white privilege,” or at least that’s what Glaude tried to argue. Melvin also claimed that anyone wearing a MAGA hat was asking for trouble. 



View co-host Whoopi Goldberg shamelessly defended the media Tuesday, after they spent all day Friday hyping the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, and was later refuted by Robert Mueller that same day. Conservative co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman slammed the media’s initial response to the Buzzfeed report, arguing they were helping Trump get re-elected, a claim Whoopi took issue with.



Tuesday, The View finally addressed the encounter between Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American veteran, Nathan Phillips, at the Lincoln Memorial at the March for Life last Friday. After the media smeared the kids as racists based off of unfounded accusations, they suddenly found longer videos posted which contradicted that narrative. The View’s Sunny Hostin, however, still put the blame on the Convington kids and their parent chaperones, instead of the media or Phillips, for lying about them.



Tuesday, ABC’s congressional correspondent Mary Bruce didn’t even try to hide her disdain for Republicans and President Trump, while covering the government shutdown. On Good Morning America, Bruce mocked Trump’s proposal to re-open the government and touted Democrats as the victims in this "power play."



To no one’s surprise, Democrat Senator Kamala Harris announced she was running for president in 2020 on ABC’s Good Morning America Monday, and the network couldn’t have been more thrilled. ABC’s Twitter account flooded with memes they made of Harris’s image with inspirational quotes behind and links to her 2020 announcement on GMA. During the interview, anchors Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos mostly threw softballs and didn’t ask Harris about her party's problem with anti-Semitism. 



ABC’s Good Morning America admitted Monday that the incident at the March for Life that went viral appearing to show Catholic teens in MAGA hats sneering at a Native American veteran, was taken out of context. However, ABC failed to acknowledge that their own network also slandered these kids with their hasty reporting based off of on one viral video.



Buzzfeed News's scandalous report out late Thursday night, which alleges President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project, is being eaten up by the media as the smoking gun they’ve been searching for to impeach Trump. Despite the fact that the report relies on anonymous sources and one of the journalists has a history of shoddy reporting, cable news and the networks this morning have given it near-nonstop attention and credibility. But even the journalists behind the report can’t seem to get their stories straight on the evidence.

 


ABC, NBC and CBS’s morning news shows all ignored the 46th annual March for Life happening today in Washington D.C.,the largest pro-life gathering in the nation where an estimated 100,000 people are expected to show up to protest the legalization of abortion. Even as President Trump is expected to address the crowd via video for the second year in a row, the liberal networks still couldn’t find time to report on the march.



Wednesday, The Daily Show followed CBS’s lead in trying to shame VP Mike Pence’s wife Karen after it was announced that she would be returning to teaching art to students at a Christian school in Northern Virginia. Because the school is Christian, it holds Christian policies for its students and faculty. Apparently that’s a shocking thing in 2019, as host Trevor Noah took aim at Pence and America's “crazy” right to religious freedom.



Only on The View would you hear a host compare the radically leftist mayor of New York City to “a Republican.” That happened on Wednesday’s show, when the hosts gave Bill De Blasio a tougher shake than most news programs do, but still praised his socialist health care plan that guarantees free health care for illegal aliens. That’s when Joy Behar weirdly praised the mayor’s plan as sounding like a “small government” idea by “a Republican.”



View co-host Sunny Hostin once again showed just how blindly partisan she is on Tuesday’s show, arguing that anyone who agrees with Trump’s border wall is a racist bigot against “brown people.”



Never Trump Republicans who lose elections keep seeming to find new jobs on cable news. In an unsurprising move, CNN announced Tuesday that they’ve hired former Ohio governor and vocal Trump critic John Kasich as a senior political commentator for the network. The network also recently hired never-Trump Republican Rep. Mia Love, who lost her re-election for Congress this past Fall, as political commentator.



ABC’s Senior White House correspondent Jonathan Karl appeared on The View Monday to briefly discuss the two reports out in the Washington Post and New York Times which the media is seizing on as their new “evidence” that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. However the reports fall short of that and even Jon Karl had to admit that there was “zero evidence” of that to the hosts, much to their chagrin.



View co-host Meghan McCain held her liberal guest’s feet to the fire after the latter repeatedly dodged then flat-out refused to condemn vile, anti-Semitic remarks made by her friend, Louis Farrakhan. Tamika D. Mallory appeared on the show Monday with co-chair of the march, Bob Bland, to address that controversy as well as the claims by pro-life women that they were excluded from the march.
