How again are the liberal media not a part of the opposition party? On Wednesday’s Cuomo Prime Time on CNN and Hardball on MSNBC, it just so happened that they ran nearly identical segments smearing Republicans for “employ[ing] scare tactics” and “fear-mongering” people into supporting the GOP at the polls. Thankfully, Brooke Baldwin wasn’t on-air during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour of CNN, as host and faux journalist Chris Cuomo mentioned the word “mob.”
Despite acknowledging that she should not do so, on her current book tour United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor nevertheless waded into politicking, bashing both the Federal Government’s response to Hurricane María in Puerto Rico and exhorting Latino voters to go to the polls “to change this life for us Latinos.”
Desperate to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous political stunt of taking a DNA test to try to prove Native American heritage, late Thursday morning, MSNBC Political Analyst and SiriusXM Director of Progressive Programming Zerlina Maxwell actually insinuated that the Cherokee Nation was racist, following their statement condemning Warren.
On Tuesday, former Wall Street Journal and Roll Call reporter Glenn Simpson – who co-founded the Fusion GPS Group that commissioned the infamous anti-Trump dossier – refused to testify to the House Judiciary Committee. This key development in the Russia investigation has yet to be reported by any of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks on their evening or morning shows.
The journalistic swooning for Beto O’Rouke reached epic proportions on Thursday as MSNBC reporters gushed over the “rock star” and the “Betomania” phenomena that surrounds him. But, by far, the most hyperbolic moment came when Andrea Mitchell Reports guest host Peter Alexander insisted that the Texas Democrat might be the 2020 nominee — no matter what!
New York Times’ Susan Chira, a “senior correspondent and editor on gender issues,” handed her paper’s mighty megaphone to angry anti-Kavanaugh women in “After Kavanaugh, Some Women Feel Powerless, Others Pumped Up.” Chira had nudged against the conventional liberal wisdom that all women were against Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a Sunday Review piece. But her Wednesday piece read as emotionally charged feminist propaganda: "The words they choose: Despair. Rage. Fear. Hopelessness. Determination."
Already looking past November’s midterm elections to the 2020 presidential race, on Wednesday, the hosts of CBS This Morning treated former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to a fawning softball interview in which they repeatedly urged the Democrat to run in two years and wondered how he could help mobilize liberal voters in the coming weeks.
Univision’s report on the raid of the San Juan administrative building carried out by the FBI shows a strong instance of bias by framing- wherein an otherwise neutral report is contaminated by biased framing.
View co-host Meghan McCain was the only one at the table on Thursday’s show to call out their Democrat guest, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on her party’s failed hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. McCain also pointed out how that Senate hearing has hurt Democrat chances in the upcoming midterms.
Despite almost nine minutes of interview time, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell on Thursday posed no tough questions to Joe Biden. Instead, she cheered the Democrat on as the “top choice” for Democrats in 2020 and praised him for “caring deeply about this country.” Pushing the former Vice President from the left, O’Donnell demanded, “If Democrats win the House, do you believe that they may move forward with articles of impeachment?”
It’s midterm season on mainstream television, so if talking politics is a must for your mid-morning routine, switch the channel over to Ellen. Lately, all her lefty friends have been making appearances to plug for the Democrat ticket. Viewers who tuned in on Thursday received a real treat. The always-unhinged progressive femmebot Chelsea Handler hit the famous off-white couches to talk about the impending apocalypse should Dems lose power during the midterm elections.
“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are!” Unless of course you’re Keira Knightley’s daughter Edie. That little girl is unfortunate enough to have a “woke” Mommy who won’t let her will see certain Disney classics.
The stock markets were volatile in October, including an all-time Dow Jones Industrial Average high and some “major” falls. Unfortunately, the broadcast networks preferred to show the bad side of the economy.
The network evening news shows focused on the “major selloff” and “meltdown” on Oct. 10 and 11 and ignored a record high on Oct. 3, as well as a 500-plus point gain on Oct. 16.
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski, commenting on the Jamal Khashoggi news, calls supporters of President Trump "quislings," a term meaning traitors who serve as the puppet of the enemy occupying their country. But the show didn't get to a discussion of the news until after the panel bantered about last night's baseball game—for over four minutes.
FX’s Mayans M.C. has been a wild card of issues as far as TV goes. We’ve jumped from wall jabs to racist border enforcers to abortion all within seven episodes. This latest week, however, gets us back to what’s really important: taking down Trump.
