Latest from Nicholas Fondacaro

According to an NBC News exclusive that first aired during the 10 o’clock hour of Tuesday morning’s MSNBC Live, both Republican and Democratic sources on the Senate Intelligence Committee admitted they had not found any direct evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Despite the fact the exclusive was filed by NBC News intelligence and national security reporter Ken Dilanian, NBC Nightly News hid it from viewers. Meanwhile, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News also turned a blind eye.



Shortly before ABC downplayed the anti-Semitic comments of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) on Monday, World News Tonight touted Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) for throwing her hat into the 2020 presidential campaign. But while liberals of ABC were busy touting Klobuchar (and other Democrats), they largely ignored what Politico called the “staff horror stories” plaguing her campaign rollout.



Since the midterm elections, the liberal media have been singing the praises of Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar for being one of the first Muslim women in Congress. That praise came despite Omar’s long history of trafficking in staunch anti-Semitism. On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had no choice but to acknowledge her hate, but only after recent tweets from Omar forced the Democratic Party leadership to denounce her.



If you think you noticed a difference in the liberal media’s ferocity, or lack thereof, in pursuing the two sexual assault allegations against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justice Fairfax (D) and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, you’re not wrong. As The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway called out during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz on Sunday, The Washington Post sat on the allegations against Fairfax for months while they pounced on those against Kavanaugh.



NBC’s Meet the Press and moderator Chuck Todd have taken a radical stance on climate change and they’re proud of it. Late last year Todd boasted about banning “climate deniers” from his show. On Sunday, he and his fellow liberal journalists tried to boost the dangerously radical Green New Deal while avoiding the craziness it proposes.



Over the weekend, the chaos gripping Virginia politics evolved yet again with a second sexual assault allegation against Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax. With Virginia’s top three officeholders (all of whom were Democrats) facing calls for their resignations, NBC moderator Chuck Todd took to Sunday Today to caution against running Fairfax out of office before an investigation could be conducted. Yet, with Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Todd was telling him to pack it up before the hearing.



Seemingly following the example set by his fellow CNN hosts, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, host Anderson Cooper ended Thursday’s edition of AC360 by venting his nonsensical anger at a fundraising e-mail sent by the Trump campaign. The e-mail, meant to drive engagement with Trump supporters, led people to the “Official State of the Union Approval Poll” and the answers for the parody poll have had CNN liberals in a tailspin.



Thursday marked the first day of what President Trump suggested was “presidential harassment” by House Democrats via numerous investigations into seemingly all aspects of his life. The liberal media cheered on the investigations with both ABC and CBS evening news programs boasting about how the Democrats were “kicking” things into a “higher gear”.



Anyone who has somehow been added to an e-mail list for a political campaign can attest to the fact that they often get messages that include fun or cheesy efforts to drive interaction with supporters to keep enthusiasm up. But during Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon were up in arms over such an e-mail sent by the Trump campaign polling supporters on how the State of the Union address went.



According to disturbing reports out Wednesday, Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax was in a closed-door meeting with other Democrats discussion the sexual assault allegations against him when he angrily declared “f*** that b****”. In what seemed like an effort to help Fairfax’s image, none of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) reported the comments that evening. Instead, they chose to focus on the toned down statements Fairfax released later in the day.



CNN political director David Chalian reprised his State of the Union analysis from 2018 by, once again, discrediting CNN’s own poll numbers showing an overwhelmingly positive response to President Trump’s Tuesday address.“So I just want to stress here, for a State of the Union address, the President's partisans, his supporters tend to turn out to watch the speech. This is true of a president of either party,” he warned viewers after also noting the poll was only of people who actually watched the speech.



Despite a CBS News/You Gov poll showing 76 percent of viewers approving of President Trump’s Tuesday State of the Union address, CNN chief national correspondent John King blasted the speech as a “disgrace” because it didn’t touch on topics important to liberals. Most notably, according to King, climate change.



Proving why CNN pays him to be an expert political analyst, left-wing activist Van Jones panned President Trump’s Tuesday State of the Union address as a “psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop” moments after it was over.



In advance of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the White House told the press that President Trump wanted to use the occasion to hit the reset button on strained relationships in Washington, D.C. and to bring Americans to together. But liberal media folks like MSNBC’s Chuck Todd couldn’t believe it. During that evening’s MTP Daily, Todd denounced Trump’s second SOTU as “shaping up to be a night of absurdist theater”.



As part of First Lady Melania Trump’s Be Best anti-bullying campaign, she invited Wilmington, Delaware 6th grader Joshua Trump to be one of the guests at Tuesday’s State of the Union. By now you probably figured out that while he shared no relation with the President, Joshua was bullied because they share the same last name. But that gesture rubbed CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon the wrong way during Monday’s Prime Time.



As the blackface/KKK scandal consumed Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, the party was calling for him to resign and to let “rising star” Justin Fairfax, the lieutenant governor, take over. But the young Democrat had his own problem in the form of a new sexual assault allegation. Despite the Monday accusations being seen by some as serious and credible, that evening’s ABC World News Tonight ignored them while hawking Fairfax’s ascension. And NBC downplayed the allegations by adopting Fairfax’s terms.



In an apparent follow-up to last Sunday’s praise for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter revisited the freshman Congresswoman during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” to gush about how she has “true online power” and there was “no doubt about it”.



At the start of last week, the liberal media had a nervous breakdown after former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced he was thinking about running for president as an independent. The liberal media was worried that he was doing to damage the changes for Democrats so they did what they could to beat up on him. They ripped into him so much, that during Sunday’s Meet the Press, on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was seemingly impressed he withstood it all.



The Democratic Party kicked off Black History Month with a trip back to its racist roots with the controversy surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and a photo appearing to show him in either blackface or a KKK hood. He claims it wasn’t him although he did admit to wearing blackface in the past. As Democratic politicians and liberal media folks called on him to resign, a panel of journalists on CNN’s Inside Politics tacitly admitted that the calls were happening because the political timing was significant.



The Media Research Center has extensively documented CNN’s hatred for Trump supporters over the last few years. But during Thursday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo made a serious argument in support for allowing businesses to ban people wearing MAGA hats. If that wasn’t bad enough, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon justified applying prejudices against those wearing the hats as well.
