As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo returned to the United States after another trip to North Korea to discuss denuclearization, that totalitarian regime denounced the meeting as “regrettable” and claimed the U.S. had a “gangster” mindset. Of course, this allowed the liberal media to shout victory and ‘we told you so’ quips as they proceeded to mock the White House.
The liberal media love to pretend they don’t play favorites between the parties. But that’s really hard to defend when you’re praising a liberal organization called Swing Left that connects Democrats with swing districts they can volunteer in. That was exactly what happened during Thursday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC when Chris Jansing filled in for host Chuck Todd.
It took a few days for the horrific news to make its way to major outlets but on Thursday, CBS was the only broadcast network to inform its viewers of a nationwide manhunt for a group of men accused of kidnapping and raping two teenage girls. Authorities captured two of the men involved and believed they were in the U.S. illegally.
On the eve of America’s Birthday, CNN played up a Gallup poll that suggested only 47 percent of Americans were “extremely proud” to be an American during Tuesday's edition of OutFront. To get their own unofficial tally on the mood of the country, the network found it amusing to send out reporter Jeanne Moos to interview New Yorkers about their level of patriotism. Of course, they highlighted the bitter anti-Trump liberals of the city.
President Trump ruffled the liberal media’s feathers again on Tuesday after his Justice Department released new guidelines instructing colleges and universities to not use a person’s race as a factor in admissions. It’s a reversal of an Obama-era guideline so, of course, ABC and NBC were against the move and downplayed the plight of Asian-Americans whose race meant affirmative action policies burdened them with a higher standard.
CNN host Chris Cuomo wrapped up the first hour of Prime Time by emphatically ranting about President Trump not ordering American flags be flown at half-staff to honor the five journalists killed during the Capital Gazette shooting. According to his speculation, it was because of Trump’s “insensitivity to the dead” and his hatred for the press.
ABC, CBS, and NBC completely ignored the horrific death threat issued to Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) and his family during their evening broadcasts on Monday, even as the liberal media continue to pontificate about President Trump's supposed incitement of incivility across the country. Meanwhile, the same networks found ample time to discuss news of anti-Trump NBA star LeBron James moving to the L.A. Lakers.
Since the beginning of the Trump administration, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had become infamous for his out of control shouting, grandstanding, and childish antics during press briefings and other televised White House events. So, during a special appearance on the network’s Reliable Sources, Acosta defending his actions and at one point proclaimed that if he was sent to Hell, “I'll still be shouting at the Devil, is the way I look at it.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rocked the Democratic Party last Tuesday after she toppled New York Congressman Joe Crowley. The millennial identifies as a Democratic Socialist and, as would be expected, she became an overnight media darling. Since socialism has led to the poverty and suffering of millions of people around the world, there’s no wonder many people fear its horrific effects. But on Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd let the potential congresswoman define the ideology on her terms.
On Saturday, liberals gathered across the country to protest President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy and to call for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). Of course, the liberal media were in love with the rallies so ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today gushed about them on Sunday morning.
With Senate Democrats in the minority and helpless to stop President Trump and Senate Republicans from confirming the next nominee to the Supreme Court, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a portion of Thursday’s broadcasts looking to the few marquee, moderate GOP Senators to block whatever nominee was put forward. They were also worried of red state Democrats who would cross the aisle.
In the wake of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement on Wednesday, and realization that President Trump would get a second conservative nomination, the liberals were torn between organizing a feeble resistance and eating their own. This was obvious in the massive flare up on CNN Tonight where host Don Lemon and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders blow up at each other over who was to blame for allowing Republicans to get control of the White House.
With Wednesdsay's retirement news from Justice Anthony Kennedy, the liberal media was in a tailspin thinking of all the horrors President Trump would unleash on America with yet another Supreme Court nomination. On ABC’s World News Tonight, they were fearful for the future of Roe v. Wade and were hopefully speculating Chief Justice John Roberts would become the new swing vote for the sake of the court.
With the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the Supreme Court, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been undergoing a Chernobyl level meltdown on live television for hours on end. But things took a dark turn towards the end of the three o’clock hour when he ominously predicted “Spanish Civil War stuff” was going to happen in the fight between Republicans and Democrats over the high court vacancy.
It has only been a year since a deranged Democrat tried to pull off a mass assassination attempt against Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice. With the left’s targeting of Trump administration officials and others for harassment, which was being egged on by California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D), many reasonable people were rightfully fearful that we might be headed for a tragedy. This didn’t escape the observation of the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Tuesday as he asked media heads to take measures to stop the division and hatred.
Despite the majority opinion declaring that the ban did not target Muslims, the liberal media continued to allude to it as such. During their evening broadcasts, ABC, CBS, and, NBC all pushed some form of frightful future for America either stemming from the Supreme Court’s decision or from the possibility of Trump getting to add another conservative justice.
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon began Monday’s edition of the show by bemoaning the death of civility in America at the hands of President Trump. “When our own disagreements turn into personal attacks, are we playing to the hands of those who want to divide us? It is on purpose. Remember, people are doing this on purpose,” he indignantly declared.
Iranian civilians rose up in protest against their government on Monday, as the country’s economic situation continued to deteriorate in the wake of the United States pulling out of the nuclear agreement with a promise to reinstitute sanctions. The protests were the second major uprising this year and despite that fact, the Iran-friendly broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) failed to mention it during their evening newscasts. It may also have something to do with the protestors allegedly chanting “death to Palestine.” Just a hunch.
Over the weekend, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter and suggested the Trump administration was “banning” the American Red Cross from tending to the kids separated from their families at the border. After the Red Cross clarified what was going on, Scarborough’s Trump Derangement Syndrome flared up and he accused the international relief charity of shilling for the President.
After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story.
