Latest from Kristine Marsh

ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel admitted on Good Morning America today that he wasn’t going to address Hollywood’s problem with sexual assault, while hosting this year’s Academy Awards, because he didn’t want to “make it unpleasant.” However, he also confessed that he didn’t regret “anything” he’s said against President Trump, Republicans and the millions of legal gun owners in this country.



The liberal hosts of ABC’s The View opened Monday by opining how awful the modern conservative movement was, on their February 26 show. The hosts bashed this year’s CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) guests as “extremists” who were once considered part of the “fringe” but were now the majority of the Republican party.



Actor and activist Jesse Williams appeared briefly on The View, February 23, where he compared the media’s coverage of the Parkland shooter to the Black Lives Matter movement. The liberal Grey’s Anatomy star claimed that the media always spun shootings in favor of the white “oppressor class” while it demonized black kids shot by police.



As we’ve seen with CNN’s huffy, virtue-signaling “apple” ad campaign, the media never gets more defensive than when they are called out by the right for their liberal bias. That was apparent on ABC this morning, as the anchors reacted angrily to one conservative commentator’s comments made at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday.



Continuing the Trump-era trend of hiring anti-Trump comedians, the White House Correspondents’ Association announced Thursday that Daily Show comedian Michelle Wolf would headline this year’s annual dinner, on April 28 at the Washington Hilton.

 


Meghan McCain was the only one to hold ESPN’s Jemele Hill accountable for the incendiary comments she made about President Trump last September, on the View’s February 21 show.

 


On ABC’s February 22 show, The View hosts addressed the White House listening session and CNN town hall that occurred the day before on the Parkland school shooting, but spread some misinformation along the way, as usual.

 


As they’ve done all week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent several reports touting the “impressive” and “passionate” teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida, who met with President Trump yesterday at the White House and who screeched “murderer” at Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the NRA’s Dana Loesch at CNN’s ruckus, scripted “townhall” last night.

 


CNN proved today that if you are a politician with an “R” next to your name, you are single-handedly responsible for the mass shooting epidemic in this country, no matter what your stance on gun rights is. On Wolf Blitzer’s February 21 show this afternoon, the anchor repeatedly grilled moderate Republican, Chris Latvala from Florida, over “when” his party was going to “ban assault weapons,” asking the question over and over again.



Comedian turned late-night host Stephen Colbert wasn’t joking Tuesday night when he actually proposed that we let children run the government. After blasting Senator Marco Rubio’s dismissal that gun bans weren’t effective, the CBS Late Show host praised the teen activists for giving him “hope” that change would happen. “Until we do something about guns, you can’t vote if you’re over 18,” Colbert gushed.



ABC continued their fawning coverage of the teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida on Good Morning America February 21. ABC correspondent and co-anchor for GMA’s weekend edition, Dan Harris, reported live from Tallahassee, where a busload of students from the site of last week’s school shooting had travelled to demand more gun control measures from the Florida state legislature. The entire ABC team eagerly touted the teens’ partisan message, while repeatedly characterizing critics to gun control as cruel online “trolls.”



View co-host Whoopi Goldberg absurdly wondered if the Parkland high school shooting was the long-awaited “call” that would get teens involved in political activism. On ABC’s February 20 show, the hosts praised the students for “responding to a threat,” comparing the teens progressive activism to the Vietnam War, Civil Rights and women’s suffrage movements.



While the networks ignore thousands of young people who march on Washington every year to protest the legalized slaughter of innocent children in the womb, they don’t mind spending ample time gushing over young people who protest for liberal causes. They proved that again on Monday, when all three networks proudly touted a much smaller group of teens protesting guns, in wake of last week’s school shooting.



Former Republican and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace further proved she isn’t any different than the hard-core leftists on her network on Thursday’s Deadline: White House. Wallace joined in with her liberal panel in ripping into Paul Ryan, Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican leadership in their response to Wednesday’s high school shooting in Parkland, FL, even making the ludicrous claim that the only reason why this tragedy was getting any attention was because the victims were “white kids.”



Thursday on ABC’s The View, the whole table addressed host Joy Behar’s mockery of Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday’s show that caused an uproar. Even though the rest of the table, with the exception of Meghan McCain and to some extent Whoopi Goldberg, also made vile comments, ABC only brought up Behar’s comments as controversial.

 


Comedian turned left-wing activist Jimmy Kimmel had his barbs ready for Trump and the GOP on his Thursday evening show, after the horrific school shooting on February 14. As he has done previously on healthcare and guns, Kimmel went on a highly partisan, fake-news-filled rant blaming them for not “acting” when these tragedies occur, even slamming Trump as “mentally ill” for not giving in to the left’s demands for gun control.



Proving that there’s nothing too small that the media won’t attack the current administration for, Washington Post gossip columnist Emily Heil bashed the Vice President for his Valentine’s Day gift choice, in an article in today’s Post.



In a sit-down interview with Axios on Ash Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence told investigative journalist Mike Allen that he was upset to hear about The View’s callous remarks about his faith on their show earlier this week.



 

Never letting a tragedy go to waste, many liberals in the media immediately took to Twitter to blame Republicans for the Parkland High School shooting that took place Thursday afternoon. Several journalists from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and more blasted Republicans who had received donations from the NRA as being responsible for a sick kid’s murderous rampage.

 


All three broadcast networks ignored a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, which showed President Trump’s approval rating is at its highest its been in the past ten months. The poll also showed Republicans ahead of Democrats on the congressional ballot, in anticipation of the 2018 midterm elections.
