Latest from Kristine Marsh

In the middle of the media’s outrage over Bill Barr’s statements at the pre-Mueller report release press conference, rational analysis was found on CBS, as legal analyst Jonathan Turley calmly and bluntly dismantled the Democrats’ concerns over the Attorney General’s impartiality. The George Washington University Constitutional Law Professor also called out CBS reporter Paula Reid’s badgering of Barr during the presser as “insulting.”



Just before the release of the Mueller report Thursday, 2020 Democrat candidate Pete Buttigieg made a stop at MSNBC’s Morning Joe to answer some questions. At one point, co-host Willie Geist actually confronted him on his support for late-term abortions, a position that is so radical most Americans of all stripes don’t support it.



As newly announced 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg campaigned in Iowa this week, the media hyped a tiny group of protesters who condemned his pro-gay marriage and pro-abortion stances.On MSNBC Live Wednesday morning, host Hallie Jackson responded by bringing on a pro-abortion activist to berate the pro-life protesters as “peddlers of hate.”

 


CNN’s most obnoxious White House correspondent is about to get rewarded again from his peers for his unprofessional behavior. According to a press release on April 12, the New York Press Club will give Jim Acosta their “Truth to Power” journalism award.



Cable news continued hailing Democrat Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the second coming Tuesday after he officially tossed his hat in the ring for President, Monday. Over at MSNBC, “center-right” columnist for the New York Times, David Brooks touted Buttigieg as the anti-Trump that America needed right now, in the wake of the “moral and spiritual crisis” that President Trump had created.

 



The Daily Caller is reporting that former senior adviser to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, may have bought her spot on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list with her new memoir, Finding My Voice, despite having poor selling rankings, elsewhere.



The co-hosts of The View had a heated exchange Thursday over the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. When co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made the case that Assange deserved to be protected under the First Amendment, Meghan McCain took her to task, calling her argument, “straight propaganda.”



After being the face of a celebratory Newsweek cover this week, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota appeared on the Late Show Wednesday night to get the star treatment yet again. The controversial freshman Democrat was in trouble again this week for making audacious comments about 9/11, but she was safe from any criticism from host Stephen Colbert. He didn’t even ask her about this, instead, egging her on to attack Fox News for daring to air these comments that the rest of the media largely ignored.



Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts argued about the combative exchange between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Rep. Maxine Waters that happened during a committee hearing Tuesday. When the Democrat committee chair wanted to keep questioning Mnuchin, despite a previously agreed upon ending time, the two had a fiery exchange that prompted View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar to gush about how amazing “Auntie Maxine” was for shutting down the Secretary.



Wednesday the Good Morning America team was so eager to “fact-check” President Trump that they slammed him for something he didn’t even say. During a White House photo-op Tuesday, White House correspondent Jonathan Karl berated Trump on the family separation policy that he “started.” After Trump correctly pointed out that the Obama administration also separated children at the border, Karl and George Stephanopoulos quickly came to the Democrat’s defense.



Comedian Chelsea Handler was making the rounds on television today promoting her newest memoir and Netflix documentary where she talks about her personal life and reaction to President Trump’s election. On ABC’s The View, she made a surprising admission, claiming hat her own “white privilege” was what caused her to melt down over Trump, saying white liberals acted like “spoiled brats.”



One of the media’s most hated figures in the Trump administration, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen turned in her resignation letter over the weekend, after months of conflict between her and President Trump. All Monday, journalists alternated between unhinged glee over her resignation and worry that Trump would put someone “more extreme” on immigration in her place. The hosts of The View offered their own scathing criticism of Nielsen, while co-host Sunny Hostin went after Trump for not addressing the “real” threat to our national security.



Democrats at ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos were up in arms Sunday about the inappropriate conduct controversy surrounding their favorite, unannounced 2020 candidate, Joe Biden. Veteran journalist Cokie Roberts expressed her frustration that Biden was now being forced to keep his hands to himself, saying that was what was “most appealing about him,” and that having to behave himself would make his life “absolutely miserable.” Woah, calm down Cokie!



Senator Bernie Sanders appeared on The Daily Show Thursday night where he was warmly welcomed by host Trevor Noah and his enthusiastic audience. At one point during the interview, Noah expressed confusion on why the radical Democrat would agree to appear on an “illegitimate” news source like Fox News.



For some reason ABC’s The View has been a favorite stop for Democrats to announce their presidential runs for 2020. That happened again on Thursday’s show, when Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) officially announced that he was the Democrat to beat President Trump in the next election.

 


Wednesday, ABC’s The View devoted an entire show to expectant host Abby Huntsman, celebrating her pregnancy with a baby shower and packed the audience with pregnant women. The irony of the predominantly liberal show celebrating babies is quite ironic considering how the hosts have celebrated a “woman’s right to choose” to kill her baby many times before on the show.



Even after the prosecution mysteriously dropped all sixteen charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor still hasn’t won approval in the court of public opinion. When even your Hollywood peers are mocking you, it’s a sure sign your career is toast. On Monday’s Tonight Show, Comedian Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”) took aim at Smollett’s ridiculous story, mocking each part of his tall tale.



While lately co-host Meghan McCain agrees more than disagrees with her liberal peers at The View, Tuesday that changed when the Republican got into a shouting match with three of her co-hosts over a very familiar argument: the idea that the former administration was untainted by scandal.



We’ve come to expect former Obama officials getting off easy when they appear on the morning shows. However, sometimes the complete lack of any sort of impartial standard really is shocking. That was the case Tuesday when former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett came on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote her new memoir called "Finding My Voice." The Democrat operative received the star treatment from the hosts, who couldn’t stop gushing about her friendship with the Obamas and her positive “light,” while inviting her to tear into President Trump and Republicans as evil.



After they spent last week defending former Vice President Joe Biden after the left came after him over Anita Hill, the hosts of The View opened the show Monday defending the potential 2020 Democrat contender yet again. Over the weekend, fellow Democrat Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately during a campaign event in 2014, an admission that caused the media to blow up all Monday, wavering on whether their #MeToo standards were still fair, when it affected people they liked.
