If there’s one topic the liberal media love to talk about, besides themselves, it’s President Trump. In the midst of the nation mourning the death of former President George H.W. Bush, and their own programming about Monday’s memorial service, CNN brought on Ronald Reagan’s daughter, Patti Davis to blast Trump for damaging the presidency and bringing it down to the level of 9-year-olds.
Former President George H.W. Bush was elected into office on his famous promise of “read my lips: no new taxes”. It was a promise he would come to break and many attribute to why he became a one-term president. As Sunday’s Meet the Press was nearing the end of its hour, NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell praised the former President for breaking his promise to the public and raising taxes.
When Democratic leaders pass away, the liberal media prefer to treat them like saints and pretend rougher points didn’t exist. But that standard doesn’t apply to Republicans ones as the largely liberal panel on ABC’s This Week demonstrated on Sunday, where faux Republican commentator Matthew Dowd decried people who wanted to “canonize” the late George H.W. Bush, who passed away Friday night.
In what was supposedly a “comedy” act to close out the latest episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, the female cast members got together to sing their rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. But the person they had their eye on was Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or, at least a report that would put Trump in jail. Because, according to the SNL cast, “the only other option is a coup. Straight Africa.”
For months, the liberal media have made it seem as though the only thing standing between them and their hopes for asylum was Trump’s cruelty, especially when they stormed the border wall. This was all, despite the fact that the parameters for granting asylum were narrowly tailored. During Thursday’s CBS Evening News, correspondent Adriana Diaz interviewed a young man from the spring caravan who was actually persecuted in Honduras and was granted asylum last month.
On Thursday, California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman resigned the position after allegations of sexual misconduct arose last week. The accusations were serious, with the state party vice chairman leading the charge for Bauman’s outer. But from when the story first broke last Saturday to Bauman’s resignation, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) couldn’t be bothered to report any of it during their morning or evening news programs.
Liberal journalists are all for sanctuary cities, flying in the face of federal immigration laws and federal jurisdiction on the matter. But when the small town of Republic, Washington took a stand against their state’s infringement on constitutional gun rights, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were nowhere to be seen.
It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend, then he had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, his claim to fame porn star Stormy Daniels, had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing law suits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.
The liberal media have been desperately trying to make the Mississippi Senate runoff a fight between a “moderate” Democrat in Mike Espy and raging racist in Cindy Hyde-Smith. First, they tried to claim she said she would love to be a witness to a lynching, then, among other things, they lied and claimed she sent her daughter to a segregated school. Now, according to CNN on Tuesday, Trump saying Espy was too “far-left” to “fit in” with Mississippi was a racist dog whistle and evidence of Hyde-Smith’s true self.
A few days after a failed violent assault by a hoard of Central American migrants tried to invade the U.S. on Sunday, over 100 of them grew frustrated and boarded planes for their home countries on Tuesday. And after being appalled by President Trump’s defense of Border Patrol’s use of mere tear gas to repel the attack, ABC and NBC couldn’t be bothered that evening to mention the migrants packing up and leaving plus how Tijuana locals were happy to see them go.
The day before the Mississippi Senate runoff the liberal media trying desperately to drag Democrat Mike Espy over the finish line by dragging GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith through the mud. They’re putting all their money into smearing Hyde-Smith as a racist and the product of a racist state. During their Monday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC did everything they could to attack her, with one going so far as to attack her teenage daughter with lies about attending a segregated school.
On Sunday, U.S. Border Patrol came under attack when a large group of Central American migrants from the infamous caravan stormed the wall near the San Ysidro port of entry just outside of Tijuana, Mexico. The Border Patrol responded by dispersing the group (mostly adult males) with tear gas, a non-lethal method. Yet, during their Monday evening broadcasts, ABC and NBC were aghast and suggested President Trump was defending the tear gassing of children.
On Friday, the Trump administration issue a congressionally mandated report about climate change that claimed it looked 100 years into the future and was designed to scare people. The liberal media were apoplectic that the administration dismissed the findings as they tried to spread the panic. New York Times reporter Helene Cooper, during her Sunday appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, was particularly adamant that everyone in America needed to be running around in hysterics over the report.
Ohio Governor John Kasich was one of the last two holdouts against Donald Trump during the 2016 GOP primaries and since then, he has become a go-to for the liberal media when they need a never-Trump Republican to bash the President. He has also become a name the liberal media love to throw around as a contender to knock out Trump in 2020. During an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Sunday, Kasich wanted advice from host and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos on a possible third-party run.
As Americans begun celebrating the holiday season, almost 300,000 French people took to the streets to protest a massive fuel tax hike proposed by President Emmanuel Macron to fight climate change. The protests turned violent Saturday as the now-rioters began digging up the streets of Paris and trying to construct barricades as police fought back with tear gas and water cannons. Despite this ongoing battle, ABC News had not reported one word about it on air. Not even on Saturday’s World News Tonight.
The final race of the 2018 midterms will be held next Tuesday in Mississippi between Republican favorite Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy. The liberal media have been desperately trying to turn the tide by smearing Hyde-Smith with charges of racism over mostly innocuous things. And they’ve been turning a blind eye Espy’s ties to an African despot on trial for war crimes in the International Criminal Court, and the $750,000 Espy cashed in from him. Wednesday evening was ABC’s turn.
CNN seems to be staffed almost exclusively with prolific grandstanders and pontificators of a very high caliber. One of their loudest, angriest, and overly dramatic orators is Prime Time host Chris Cuomo. During Tuesday’s edition of the show, he ended the first hour of his program by telling the story of how Thanksgiving got reinvented during times of great hardship and strife in America. According to him, “Thanksgiving is coming, and not a moment too soon” because we’re experiencing one of those times.
In a revelation worth face-palming over, First Daughter Ivanka Trump was discovered to have used a private e-mail account for official business while transitioning into her governmental role. In an instance of actual honesty for what they were doing Tuesday, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt reported that the news had “critics pouncing” and “alleging hypocrisy after her father's relentless criticism of Clinton's e-mails.” Of course, this came after the liberal media downplayed Clinton’s E-Mail scandal.
After being arrested on felony domestic violence charges last week, there was a new chapter in the saga of Michael Avenatti’s alleged abuse late Monday night when news broke that New York actress Mareli Miniutti had filed a domestic violence restraining order against him. Both CNN and MSNBC couldn’t be bothered to mention the development on air that night.
The camp set up for the Central American caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening.
