MRC founder and president Brent Bozell took to Twitter on Monday to underline how non-essential PBS/NPR stations are taking $75 million from the emergency $2 trillion "stimulus" bill to deal with the economic ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Look at what America did NOT get because of PBS/NPR handouts.
In the manipulative mind of the media, granting President Trump any semblance of credit would be far too much of an ask. Doctoring and misconstruing footage of President Trump is the M.O. of the press even during times of crisis, as proven by an article published Monday on MSNBC’s website by Steve Benen.
Leftists with blue checkmarks on Twitter lost their minds when MyPillow CEO and Trump supporter Mike Lindell spoke about faith and his company’s plans to deal with the coronavirus in the White House Rose Garden. Liberal MSNBC Anchor Ali Velshi also took issue with it, and conservative actor James Woods wasn’t letting him get away with it.
While the national coronavirus outbreak continues to receive wall-to-wall coverage, executives at CNN and MSNBC -- both liberal cable “news” channels -- are wrestling over whether to continue airing live press conferences being conducted by President Trump. The clash pits Democratic critics, who claim the Republican official is using the briefings to spread “misinformation,” versus those who have stated that their ratings have never been higher and show no signs of dropping.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "everybody was attacking this My Pillow guy," Mike Lindell, regarding his appearance at President Trump's press conference. Not "everybody," Joe. It was your fellow Trump-hating elitists, including your own NBC network and your own wife, who were doing the mocking. Scarborough and Willie Geist did go on to express appreciation for Lindell's pledge to produce 50,000 masks.
It’s been nearly a week since a former Joe Biden staffer leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them. In that same time period, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.
The coronavirus pandemic was naturally the lead National story in Monday’s New York Times Far less helpful but more racially inflammatory was the angle taken by reporter Matt Stevens, blaming Trump for hateful rhetoric directed as Asian-Americans: “For Asian-Americans, Taunts Are Painful Echo of ‘Outsiders’ Status -- Hard-Won Gains at Risk Amid a Torrent of Hate.” He wrote: And then along came the coronavirus -- a pandemic that unleashed a torrent of hate and violence as bigots blamed Asian-Americans for the outbreak." Whose to blame for these scattered attacks, unlinked to Trump voters? Trump and the GOP, of course.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter spent many months complaining about the lack of White House press briefings...then when Trump took questions on the lawn, it was the lack of "formal" press briefings. Now there are daily briefings in the James Brady Briefing Room, and Stelter's complaining "Trump is self-isolating at his safe space: Fox News." Stelter should be quite physically fit after all this energetic goalpost-moving.
Well, that didn’t take long. After a jam-packed political episode of the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico, we already have another story promoting the virtue of abortion. Or rather, we have a story bashing sanctuary city laws that protect the unborn. Apparently, in our wide range of issues in 2020, this is still a high priority.
On FX’s Breeders, Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) are no fans of God or religion. Yet while Ally prepares to scatter her dead father’s ashes, she still goes into an empty church, even though Paul acknowledges to her friend, Darren (Patrick Baladi) that she “hates God.” Ally demonstrates just how much contempt she has for places of worship, and her family, when she curses them out for interrupting her moment alone:
When liberals aren’t shoveling out fake news to push their agenda, they’re usually shoveling out fake history to push their agenda. Take HBO’s The Plot Against America, for example. The latest episode paints an America that was always anti-Semitic, only to be publicly revealed by a populist president. And somehow, this turns into yet another Donald Trump drag by the media.
It’s seemingly become routine for CNN to test the boundary of journalistic ethics and have Prime Time host Chris Cuomo interview his older brother, the Democratic governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo on his show. During Monday’s appearance, Chris proved why he was the “Fredo” of the family when he tried and ultimately failed to egg Andrew into bashing President Trump and commit to, at least, be open to running for president “at some point.”
Panic and fear were on the top of the agenda for ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News during their Monday night broadcasts. Each of these networks harped on valid worries over a lack of personal protective equipment for health care workers, ventilators, and the lag in results of coronavirus testing. But it was only NBC Nightly News that highlighted what the Trump administration was doing to alleviate the problems.
Dr. Tony Fauci has become widely seen as a nonpartisan health expert during the coronavirus pandemic. But that didn’t stop Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler from throwing a harsh “Four Pinocchios” (pants on fire) verdict for a statement to NBC anchorman Lester Holt that Italy's terrible infection and death rate came because "they had an open border, they let people in."
On Monday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta stepped back in the ring for Monday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, as usual, he made a fool out of himself. Fortunately for our collective sanity, the ordeal lasted less than two minutes and ended with President Trump torching Fake News Jim for his “nasty, snarky question” about the President’s past statements at what was then a disturbing but evolving pandemic.
