Latest from Kristine Marsh
ABC’s chief national correspondent Terry Moran reported on Senator Bernie Sanders’ newly announced 2020 run with an embarrassing amount of enthusiasm, on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. Just as the media did covering his 2016 campaign, Moran spoke glowingly of Sanders' radical agenda and hoped that many Americans would “feel the Bern."
ABC’s Good Morning America team went into full damage control mode Monday, after news broke over the weekend that actor Jussie Smollett had allegedly paid two men to stage his assault. Just last Thursday, anchor Robin Roberts had given the actor a softball interview, even refusing to call his story of a Trump supporter assaulting him, “alleged.”
ABC News's political director Rick Klein appeared briefly on The View Thursday to talk about the controversies surrounding freshman Democrats and to tout the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While co-host Abby Huntsman expressed concern that Democrats were veering too far left, Klein and fellow co-host Joy Behar shut her down, claiming that most Americans supported Democrats’ radical and infeasible policy proposals.
ABC previewed their exclusive interview with actor Jussie Smollett on Thursday, his first interview since the alleged hate crime he recounted to Chicago police two weeks ago. While host Robin Roberts did ask the actor about the controversial, uncorroborated aspects of his story on Good Morning America, she did not refer to the attack as “alleged” even once. Instead, she asked him to teach us all what we could “learn” from the alleged experience.
After Vice President Pence called on Rep. Ilhan Omar to be punished for her anti-Semitic remarks, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell used the blowback against the Democrat to complain about anti-Muslim discrimination. The journalist grilled Pence Wednesday afternoon, while he was in Warsaw, Poland attending a U.S. sponsored summit on the Middle East.
After ignoring Tuesday’s news that the Senate Intelligence Committee had found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, ABC was eager to report on the story Wednesday morning after the top Democrat backtracked on his own committee’s findings. NBC and CBS still found no time to report on the Senate finding no evidence of collusion on their morning programs.
The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida appeared on Cuomo Prime Time Thursday evening to give his side of the story, after CNN spent all day demonizing him as trying to throw out a Parkland victim’s father at a hearing about illegal immigration. Gaetz slammed CNN for deceptively editing the encounter and the heated conversation culminated in Cuomo losing his cool, accusing Republicans of wanting dead Americans due to illegal alien violence.
Well this didn’t age well. A video has resurfaced online this week showing View co-host Joy Behar actually bragging about wearing dark makeup to dress up as an “African woman” for Halloween one year. That admission came during the May 13, 2016 episode of The View, dug up by the same website that found the Ralph Northam blackface photos.
During a discussion on the various scandals engulfing Virginia Democrat leaders this week on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, legal analyst Maya Wiley dismissed the scandals as “political” while ludicrously arguing that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh didn’t receive as much scrutiny as these Democrat men were facing.
Former executive editor for the New York Times Jill Abramson created headlines last month when she admitted that her former paper has become “unmistakably anti-Trump.” She appeared on The View Wednesday to talk about this very topic, detailed in her new book, “Merchants of Truth.” But co-host Joy Behar was visibly peeved that Abramson was out speaking about the Times in an unfavorable way and grilled her about her motives for doing so.
Ardently anti-Trump View co-host Joy Behar rushed to socialism’s aid during the panel’s discussion about Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. Behar also took issue with Democrat Stacey Abrams rebuttal, boasting that Democrats actually do want President Trump to fail as payback for ruining the country.
All three morning network shows Wednesday included reports on the bombshell that broke late February 5 by the Washington Post, revealing Sen. Elizabeth Warren identified as an “American Indian” on her registration card for the State Bar of Texas. Only NBC omitted the fact that this proves Warren had lied about never using her supposed minority status to advance her career.
Dozens of prominent journalists are on their way to being sued for defamation according to Fox News. On FNC’s America’s Newsroom Tuesday, Doug McKelway reported that these journalists from just about every liberal outlet imaginable, are receiving preservation letters from Covington student Nick Sandmann’s lawyer. The letters order them to not destroy any reports or correspondences related to their coverage of the incident, which smeared the teens as racists.
ABC couldn’t stop gushing over the Democrats and their invited guests to tonight's State of the Union address, on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. Congressional correspondent Mary Bruce even ludicrously called failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a “rising star,” hoping that she might run again in the Senate. Bruce also touted Democrats inviting illegal aliens and activists to the address, but failed to mention any of the guests invited by the White House.
Over the weekend, calls mounted for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to resign over racist photos that were found in his medical school yearbook. Yet the Democrat’s controversial comments supporting a radical abortion law proposed by his party was swept under the rug by the media. CNN even went out of its way to silence any conservative guests who tried to bring up that story on their network this weekend.
Newly announced 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) made the media rounds Friday after several other Democrats threw their hats in the ring this week. Booker made his first stop at ABC’s The View, where he was pressed from the left by co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro. Co-host Meghan McCain however questioned Booker’s reputation for inauthenticity and grandstanding, to which the Democrat contested, saying he was “proud” of his shamefully partisan performance at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
Openly gay actress and liberal activist Ellen Page appeared on The Late Show Thursday and went on an bizarre rant against everything from media coverage of global warming to the alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett. She predicted the world was going to end in the next eleven years, yet no one was talking about it, and emotionally ripped into the Vice President for causing the alleged anti-gay attack against Smollett.
The Washington Post has been quick to cover for local Virginia Democrats after they received swift backlash for proposing a radical abortion bill that would make it easier for women to get third trimester abortions. Democrat delegate Kathy Tran admitted, while proposing the bill earlier this week, that it would even allow a baby to be killed as they were about to be born. This horrifying admission was dismissed by the Post, as they shockingly ran a puff piece defending Tran and Democrats for their radical views on abortion, that most Americans do not share.
During CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, the panel blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “restrict voting rights” because he opposed a Democrat House bill which would demand Election Day be made a paid federal holiday.
