Having successfully lodged his foot in his mouth on the issue of gun control, Joe Scarborough has since found a new topic with which to contradict himself: Mitt Romney. Despite his severe criticism of the Republican candidate during the 2012 Presidential campaign, on Tuesday, the Morning Joe host gushed that Romney could be “a great hope” for conservatives.
Nothing’s off limits when you’re doing PR for your show, suggests one Comedy Central star. On Friday, Comedy Central’s Jake Weisman tweeted out a ChristianNewsWire press release “about me threatening to take the whole system of Christianity down and consider[ing] me a serious threat.”
New Day's Chris Cuomo interviewed Kansas Congressional Candidate Tyler Tannahill on the CNN morning show on Tuesday, who has decided not to suspend his raffle of an AR-15 in the wake of the mass shooting in south Florida last week. Cuomo seemed to imply that Tannahill deserved the threats he was receiving on his Facebook page because he is "provoking" people.
Young Americans are changing their minds on guns just like abortion, according to one Morning Joe co-host. On Tuesday, a Morning Joe panel discussed gun control following the Parkland, Florida shooting. During the segment, co-host Joe Scarborough stressed that young Americans support abortion restrictions, and argued that “the same thing’s going to happen with guns.”
View Host Whoopi Goldberg absurdly wondered if the Parkland high school shooting was the long-awaited “call” that would get teens involved in political activism. On ABC’s February 20 show, the hosts praised the students for “responding to a threat,” comparing the teens progressive activism to the Vietnam War, Civil Rights and women’s suffrage movements.
Gun control activist and media mogul Michael Bloomberg isn’t just pushing gun control through his activist group — he also has a giant media company to promote those views. Bloomberg media is filled with anti-gun content.
March 24th will be the “March for Our Lives,” an ostensibly nationwide demonstration led by student survivors of the Mary Stoneman Douglas school shooting in order to demand new gun laws. Traumatized young people pushing (or being used to push) a progressive agenda is too good to ignore for some Hollywood liberals.
Prepare for a lecture from The Washington Post. The paper has created a new video series to explain “how to be a journalist.” In the second video, reporter Stephanie McCrummen insisted that the Post’s “agenda” is simply “the truth.”

After insisting for months that President Trump has been undermining one of America’s most vital institutions with his attacks on the news media, the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe briefly dropped their act. On Tuesday, host Joe Scarborough admitted that as a member of the media, attacking Trump is just “what we do.”
The cover story in Sunday's Washington Post Magazine underlined a typical day in a Democrat newspaper. They promoted "The little-known group that trains women to run for office -- and win." It turns out the group trains Democratic women to win. Inside the headline was "A POLITICIAN IS BORN: Trump's victory enraged Kate Ranta. So she took a class in running for office." Freelancer Joanna Walters shamelessly let Ranta compare a wife-beating "sociopath" to the president.
During an interview with former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo Tuesday morning, CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo defended the leaks coming out of the Mueller investigation, saying "leaks are part of the currency of journalism."
Black Panther set box office records on its way to becoming “a watershed in cultural history of African Americans,” wrote The Miami Herald’s Leonard Pitts Jr. Yet, the movie was typical Hollywood – filled with violence, including 163 shootings, while Marvel stars call for gun control.
Like their counterparts at CNN and MSNBC, many news outlets were quick to promote anti-Trump protests in New York City on November 12, 2016 – and in doing so became unwitting promoters of Russian propaganda. An indictment handed down on February 16 by Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed that this protest, as well as one in Charlotte, NC on November 19, 2016, was organized by Russian operatives.
On Monday, CBS News tried to claim that buying a gun is easier in Florida than purchasing several household items, obtaining a marriage license, or getting medical marijuana. Glaring errors in its comparisons rendered its effort a fake-news failure.
