MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
It’s sweeps week for the networks and the February 25 episode of NBC’s New Amsterdam certainly included an unusual storyline. What began as a therapy session for a young couple turned into a case of incest.
Arguably, the biggest takeaway from the Democratic debate on Tuesday was that CBS News didn’t know how to moderate. CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and This Morning co-host Gayle King had almost no control as the debate would often descend into a cacophony of shrieking candidates. Their incompetence was so blatant that the panel on CNN’s AC360 couldn’t help but periodically mock the spectacle. Including one who playfully suggested they “all talk over each other.”
MSNBC was a better mood following Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, expressing hope going forward because former Vice President Joe Biden “looked presidential,” “had his best night,” “had his act together,” and came across as “substantive.” Further, the panel seemed giddy at the fact that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finally faced more than an occasional jab and some boo’s, making for what they deemed not exactly his strongest performance.
This may be the last season of The Conners, but the show appears determined to go out with a liberal bang and insert as much of their liberal agenda as they can fit in before the show officially ends. On Tuesday’s episode, “Bad Dads and Grads,” the writers managed to put in a plug for Planned Parenthood and promote Hollywood’s latest cause de jour- throuples.
CBS’s Democratic debate on Tuesday was a confusing, tumultuous mess with the candidates repeatedly screaming over each other and co-moderators Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell seemingly unable to keep the event from devolving into chaos. Yet, the moderators deserve some credit for occasionally and surprisingly asking a few tough questions. Here’s the questions you might not have expected (and the one you definitely did).
Along with the fact that they lost complete and total control of Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate, co-moderators Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell joined the seven candidates by peddling a far-left narrative about gun control, fretting about there being a “gun crisis” and wondering if gun manufacturers are going to be given “a pass” under a hypothetical Sanders presidency.
Yahoo News is spreading around one of the silliest British tabloid stories you can find. It's headlined "Trump and his entourage fail to eat anything from special vegetarian menu prepared for them on India trip." Tim Wyatt's story for the Independent (U.K.) started out waffling: "Donald Trump and his entourage reportedly failed to eat a single item of a special vegetarian feast prepared for him during his trip to India."
Tuesday was the big night over on CBS where they would hold the final Democratic debate before the primaries South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states. And with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) occupying the frontrunner’s podium for the first time, one would think the host network would apply a little more scrutiny. But their pre-debate newscast on CBS Evening News completely skipped over the Senator’s recent controversy of praising the murderous regime of Fidel Castro, and his double down.
He’s not too sorry. Just a day after offering an on-air apology for comparing Bernie Sanders’s Nevada win to the Nazis, the staunchly anti-communist Chris Matthews ripped into the socialist’s deputy campaign manager, Ari Rabin-Havt.. Highlighting newly unearthed comments where Sanders said he wanted to “puke” over John Kennedy’s anti-Castro comments in 1960.
Univision covered its own acquisition on its “Edicion Digital (Digital Edition)” noon newscast, following earlier reports that the beleaguered network had finally come to terms with a potential buyer.
On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show, the program demonstrated a double standard in challenging the Republican characterization of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's socialist views when, by contrast, in the same show, former Barack Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer was not challenged on his assertion that Republicans have become "white nationalist authoritarian" with the election of President Donald Trump.
A 19-year-old German woman is being hailed as the conservative response to climate change activist Greta Thunberg. She has condemned climate alarmism as a “despicably anti-human ideology,” and liberal journos are heated about it. Naomi Seibt encourages rationality in the face of climate alarmism and is seen as the conservative answer to climate change activists like Greta Thunberg. She is currently being supported by libertarian think tank The Heartland Institute, and was reportedly hired as the figurehead of its campaign to question the scientific consensus about climate change. “If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Heartland’s tactics amount to an acknowledgment that Greta has touched a nerve, especially among teens and young adults” The Washington Post wrote in its Feb. 23 coverage.
The Simpsons voiceover actor Hank Azaria is coming out about his recent decision to step down from the role of Indian “Kwik-E-Mart” owner Apu in the legendary animated series, claiming, “it just didn’t feel right.” Sure, dude, that’s exactly what we’d expect from someone who was scared straight by the Twitter woke mob.
The new Public Charge Rule, which may determine that an alien is inadmissible to the United States based on the alien’s likelihood of becoming a public charge at any time in the future, is now in effect. Interestingly, the coverage of the rule on Spanish-language news media prominently featured the advice of immigration attorneys in a clear display of free publicity.
