The folks at CNN were fuming Tuesday after a correspondent and her cameraperson, along with those from the Associated Press, were kept out of a press event held by the EPA to discuss a plan to deal with a certain kind of toxin in water supplies. And during The Situation Room that evening, a host of CNN personalities threw hissy fits about not being allowed in. They even seemed to suggest the EPA couldn’t be held accountable unless CNN was in that room.
Months ago, the Old Media proclaimed Donald Trump was more than a bit nutty to insist his campaign was the subject of Obama administration surveillance. Now it’s emerging that this wasn’t the slightest bit nutty. The New York Times reported -- in a tone much like having their fingernails dragged across a chalkboard – that the FBI used an “informant” (not a “spy”!) to chat up (and in one case, dangle money at) Trump staffers to investigate Russian finagling with the 2016 election.
In the May 22 season finale of ABC’s Roseanne, titled “Knee Deep,” Roseanne is in need of knee surgery but the family doesn’t have the money to cover it. Desperate to find a way to bid jobs cheaper to win contracts, Dan decides to hire illegal aliens for the first time.
The Department of Justice's internal watchdog has opened an investigation into the conduct of the FBI regarding their reported use of an “informant” or “spy” in the Trump campaign after the President officially demanded the matter be looked into on Monday. Come Tuesday evening, NBC Nightly News was in a hysterical panic over the development with claims President Trump was trying to “insert himself” into Russia investigation.
Early Tuesday night, Daily Caller media reporter Justin Caruso flagged some Grade A insanity on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House as Clinton-era Deputy Assistant Attorney General Harry Litman compared criticism of the Trump-Russia probe and calls for oversight to the Nazis bombing campaign on London in World War II (known as The Blitz).
Deep breaths, people. Leading off Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, moderator Chuck Todd let loose on some hyperbole and self-righteous speculation that America is amidst a “constitutional crisis” and “fatal” attack on “the rule of law” caused by Republicans demanding an investigation into alleged spying of the Trump campaign in the early stages of the Russia probe.
During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough had a surprising recommendation for viewers: “If you don't want to hear the truth, you can change the channel!” Scarborough made the remark after fiancé and fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski finished an interview with anti-Trump Republican Max Boot, who noted in an opinion column from the Washington Post “the five political norms that President Trump violated in just the past week.”
Despite the fact that no Democrat has won statewide in Texas since 1994, Time magazine on Tuesday devoted over 1600 words to the “handsome” Beto O’Rourke, the liberal hope for Democrats in Texas. O’Rourke is challenging the “dogmatic conservative,” incumbent Senator Ted Cruz.
Appearing on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday to promote his new book on presidential impeachment, left-wing Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe warned Democrats against being too quick to call for President Trump’s impeachment. He argued that they should wait for “overwhelming” bipartisan consensus on the issue and proclaimed: “If you’re going to shoot him, you’ve got to shoot to kill.”
Thank goodness for Colin Kaepernick. Without the one-time quarterback and full-time jerk out filing laughable collusion suits and steadfastly maintaining that he is entitled to play in the NFL, sports hacks like USA Today’s Jarrett Bell might have to write about sports.
Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. MSNBC host Chris Matthews was frustrated that “reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box” compared to gun-rights voters and was frustrated that the NRA seemed to be “immune to justice.” Celebrities also engaged in the demonization of gun-rights supporters. The following is a collection (so far) of the ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters in the wake of the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting.
On Friday, the Daily Beast's Michael Daly posted: "The All-American Ritual of a School Shooting, This Time in Santa Fe." In it, he failed to follow through on a promise to draw a comparison between the then-imminent "rituals" involved in British royal weddings" and Friday's school shooting in Texas.
On Tuesday’s edition of The View, the liberals were upset that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would tweet about a “war against women in the Trump administration.” Joy Behar tried to turn that into a Planned Parenthood argument, and Meghan McCain lost patience with that: “The idea that Planned Parenthood is the number one women’s issue in America, all women...it’s false and I’m sick of this!”
Did you notice an awful lot of gay characters in movies during 2017? If so, you’re an ignorant bigot. According to the analysts at GLAAD, all major Hollywood studios performed poorly in terms of forwarding the gay agenda on the big screen. Oh sure, there were two movies entirely dedicated to gay themes, but “Love, Simon” and “Call Me By Your Name” are not enough.
During Monday’s edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, reporter Mariana Atencio interviewed some members of the Santa Fe High School baseball team, including two who got shot during Friday’s mass shooting that killed ten people. Atencio repeatedly tried to get them to become gun control warriors like many of the teens who survived the recent mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
