Latest from Kristine Marsh
When a member of the “squad” gets called out for their anti-Semitic, anti-American statements, the liberal media quickly line up to defend the Democrat congresswomen. Yet when a Republican congressman was attacked for his military service by a progressive media commentator this week, it was promptly ignored by that same liberal media.
After spending Tuesday afternoon whining about Planned Parenthood opting out of Title X funding over an abortion gag order, MSNBC journalists kept up the shameless partisanship into the evening on The Beat With Ari Melber. To no one’s surprise, Melber brought on a far-left feminist panel to melt down over the news, who laughably attacked the right’s “morality” for not allowing government funding of abortion.
Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
CNN host Don Lemon joined his liberal panelists in ganging up on his one conservative guest on Monday night’s CNN Tonight over the idea that the economy was doing well. Rob Astorino of President Trump’s re-election campaign argued that the media was pushing a false narrative put out by Democrats that a recession was near, but the economy was actually stable. But the liberals at CNN insisted he was wrong, with one analyst even calling that idea a conservative “conspiracy.”
On Fox and Friends Monday, the hosts brought on Fox Business host Charles Payne to comment on how the media is now openly hoping for an economic recession under President Trump. Payne called the media’s newest obsession a “deliberate” attempt to derail the good economy under Trump, and argued there was “no economic data” to suggest a recession was near.
On his Tuesday night show, Daily Show host Trevor Noah took a brief break from mocking Trump and Fox News, to ridicule CNN’s Chris Cuomo over his now-viral video encounter with a man who called him, “Fredo.” Noah mercilessly mocked the CNN host for his violent overreaction and even took him to task for calling the term after a fictional character, an ethnic slur.
It's been a bad week for CNN. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon both embroiled in their own scandals, one even caught on camera. Now CNN political analyst April Ryan is in hot water after a local journalist claims he was assaulted by Ryan’s bodyguard while covering an event she was speaking at, earlier this month.
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell has dropped any pretense of being an objective journalist. That was never more apparent than on her Tuesday show today, where she lashed out at the acting ICE director for blaming the parents who come to America, illegally, for being separated from their children by law enforcement.
On CNN New Day Tuesday morning, the self-described “CNN squad” consisting of Trump-haters April Ryan, Bakari Sellers, Angela Rye and Andrew Gillum took a break from bashing the President on immigration laws, to complain about plastic straws. Seizing on the Trump 2020 campaign selling plastic straws in defiance of the left’s determination to ban them, the panelists began to turn on each other as some admitted they don’t like the allegedly more eco-friendly alternatives.
Women’s fashion magazine Vanity Fair seems hell-bent on attacking the First Daughter any chance they get. Just a few days after slamming her for being complicit in the shootings, they accused her of being a white supremacist in this hysterical article which makes less sense than a Cher tweet. The magazine’s Rachel Dodes, an apparent self-loathing white liberal, entitled her hit piece, “The Unbearable Whiteness of Being Ivanka Trump,” and sneered about how “white” Ivanka was a whopping ten times in the relatively short article.
Earlier this year, CNN irresponsibly gave positive coverage to an illegal immigrant hiding from ICE in a liberal sanctuary church in Colorado. One week ago, that same immigrant killed a father of five in a car accident, while driving without a license. As usual when these things happen, the only thing you can hear from CNN is crickets.
CBS and ABC continued ignoring former Vice President Joe Biden’s gaffes he made Thursday while on the campaign trail, one being similar to a racist comment he made in the past about President Obama. NBC’s Today show was the only network to mention this particular gaffe, and they only covered it so they could spin it as President Trump’s fault.
On CNN Newsroom Thursday, anti-gun host Brooke Baldwin touted Uruguay and Venezuela posting travel warnings to their citizens after the two recent mass shootings, warning about Americans "indiscriminate possession of firearms." Towards the end of the 2pm hour, she brought on an liberal comedian, Arturo Castro, to explain to the CNN audience how absurd it is that Americans have access to guns.
It’s almost as if liberal journalists were all reading from the same Democrat talking points. MSNBC Live host Craig Melvin liked what one 2020 Democrat candidate said about President Trump’s response to mass shootings, so much, that he repeated the attack line several times on the rest of his program.
After CNN online finally published a report on the Dayton shooter’s leftist politics late Monday night, the network’s left-wing anchors and reporters were eager to dismantle it almost as soon as it went up. On Twitter, CNN host Brian Stelter and reporter Oliver Darcy argued that the two shootings couldn’t be compared and denied that the Dayton shooting was politically motivated. On Tuesday morning, CNN anchors continued the spin, on-air.
Disgraced former news anchor Dan Rather has been enjoying a lengthy comeback with the liberal media propping him up for being an outspoken member of the anti-Trump resistance. He was welcomed by race-baiting CNN host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight Monday, to explain why the press needed to stop quoting the President, and instead, psychoanalyze what he says.
Sunday on MSNBC’s Kasie DC show, host Kasie Hunt and her liberal guests took turns blaming President Trump’s “racism” and America’s “gun culture” for the previous day’s massacres. Sounding more like a Democrat politician, correspondent Jacob Soboroff ranted that it was “obvious” Trump was to blame and should “make us all sick.”
Immediately following President Trump’s address on what his administration will do in response to the mass shootings over the weekend, ABC’s journalists were ready to pounce. Good Morning America co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Cecilia Vega slammed Trump’s words as “empty” and “lacking self-reflection” on how his “rhetoric contributed” to these shootings. Stephanopoulos also complained to correspondent Mary Bruce about how Trump and Republicans weren’t doing anything to address gun control.
Monday morning following horrific, deadly mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas over the weekend, as well as Gilroy, California last week, the networks were eager to pin blame on President Trump for “fueling” the violence with his “hateful rhetoric” against immigrants. What they were not eager to do was point out that the alleged social media accounts of one of these shooters revealed he was a radical leftist, who supported socialism, antifa, and Elizabeth Warren for president.
2020 candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was guest on Friday’s The View where he received ample praise from the liberal co-hosts but was called out by hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro. Co-host Sunny Hostin admitted that she didn’t understand why de Blasio’s approval ratings were low in New York, considering all of his “terrific accomplishments.” She gushed that his policies should be copied everywhere across the country.
