Latest from Kristine Marsh

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.



Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the network continued blasting Republicans and President Trump for the government shutdown while defending Democrats, touting their new poll which showed more Americans blamed the GOP instead of Democrats for the shutdown. However ABC’s credibility is shot on who is to blame for government shutdowns, as they tend to blame Republicans for shutdowns no matter who is in office.



Left-wing actor and activist Bradley Whitford, whose most famous for his role on The West Wing, appeared on ABC’s The View Friday to promote his newest project but the hosts mainly wanted him to rant about the "real" national emergency being gun violence, instead of illegal immigration.



The clearest sign of the liberal media’s bias comes when they purposefully choose to exclude information that doesn’t affirm their agenda. That apparently happened yet again this week, after CNN scrapped an interview with a border city's news station, after they had reported that the wall was effective at deterring illegal immigration.



It’s so rare that a member of the media actually confronts Democrats on anything, that it's worth noting when they do. That happened on Thursday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, when anchor Willie Geist asked Democrat guest how his party could call something “immoral” that they voted for back in 2006.



On Wednesday’s show, the hosts of The View predictably were angry at President Trump’s address Tuesday night about the border, and opened the show by ranting about it. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin also combatted Meghan McCain over the policy separating illegal alien children at the border, calling that the real humanitarian crisis.



It doesn’t get much worse than mocking the dead or wounded veterans, but NBC seems to be making a habit of it lately. After Saturday Night Live mocked a wounded Republican veteran who became a Congressman last November, Late Night host Seth Meyers’ Twitter account sent out a tweet mocking the victims of illegal alien crime, after President Trump’s primetime address on the border.

 


Democrat Senator Kamala Harris made the rounds on ABC Tuesday promoting her new memoir and aiding the media in bashing President Trump for addressing the nation tonight about the need for a southern border wall. Though she did not make a formal announcement if she was going to run for president in 2020, the liberal hosts at The View treated her as if she were already a candidate, comparing her to Hillary Clinton and pleading with her to stop President Trump.



On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, the network’s White House correspondent Jonathan Karl sat down with Vice President Mike Pence to grill him about President Trump not backing down on the border wall, laying blame for the government shutdown exclusively on him. Despite Democrats being unwilling to budge on the need for border security, the ABC reporter seethed to Pence that it was Trump’s fault that we were “in this mess.”



Monday, the hosts of the View finally got around to discussing Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s cringeworthy video from last week, where she awkwardly opened a beer while announcing her 2020 bid for president. While many on the right mocked the apparent shameless pandering, View co-host Sunny Hostin actually defended it as “authentic” on Monday’s show.

 


Much has been made in the media of the diversity in the new Congress, particularly of the two female Muslim Democrats sworn in Thursday. While ABC found time to praise Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s swearing in on Thursday’s Good Morning America, the next day the network was reluctant to report on her vulgar tirade against President Trump.



CNN’s all-female panel couldn’t contain their excitement over Democrat Nancy Pelosi being elected again as House Speaker, after she last assumed that role in 2007. CNN’s Dana Bash in particular provided over-the-top feminist commentary on how amazing the swampy liberal politician was, despite her low favorability ratings and partisan record.



As 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney released an op-ed attacking President Trump in the Washington Post January 1, the networks couldn’t help but rave over the president’s potential opponent in 2020. Revealing their hypocrisy, ABC and NBC had plenty of time to praise Romney, when they held contempt for him before he became a critic of the president.



CNN’s often misleading, snarky, stupid and pompous chyrons served only to highlight just how partisanly biased the network was this year. We’ve rounded up the worst of the year to remind you just how far the network has drifted from its supposed “facts first” messaging.



The past two years we’ve broken down the worst moments of each year on ABC’s The View. Even with the addition of Meghan McCain late last year, 2018 has proved yet again that the hosts have no tolerance for conservative viewpoints. Whether it was sneering at religion or Trump voters, defending their own double standards or making nutty apocalyptic predictions, the liberal hosts continued to remind us why there is only one acceptable leftist “view” on the ABC show. Read below to see some of the worst incidents from 2018 and watch the video below.



ABC started off Friday’s Good Morning America playing clips from their exclusive interview with President Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison this week for lying to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia and for directing hush money payments to Trump’s alleged former mistresses Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, before the 2016 election.

Despite his dishonest reputation, Cohen was treated like a hero by ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, who praised him for his “honesty” while inviting him to bash the president.

 


The liberal ladies at The View predictably went nuts on Thursday’s show over the new Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic out in theatres entitled “On the Basis of Sex.” Co-host Sunny Hostin, an ABC legal analyst was particularly enthusiastic, running out of adjectives to describe how much she loved Ginsburg and the film to stars, Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer.



CNN’s Jim Sciutto was one of the many journalists this week who attacked President Trump’s comments about border security during his meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday. Sciutto even did a whole segment “fact-checking” the president on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom. Unfortunately for him, actual experts from DHS called out his reporting on Twitter with a brutal comeback.



Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts discussed President Trump’s meeting with Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday afternoon about funding for the border wall and a potential government shutdown. Neither side would budge as expected, but the liberal hosts of The View laid all the blame on Trump, and even argued that Pelosi was “nice” to him.



After President Trump’s explosive, televised meeting today with Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over funding the border wall, MSNBC journalists took issue with Trump’s tweet about open borders increasing crime and disease, saying that was racist and xenophobic.
