ABC and NBC on Tuesday ignored the fact that a lawsuit brought by 16 Attorneys General is entirely a partisan effort with every one being filed by Democrats. Although all three networks hyped the “outrage” and the “coalition of states,” only CBS This Morning explained the Democratic effort to stop funding of the wall.
Google is engaged in partisan warfare. And it picked the liberal side, choosing to work with two of the most prominent liberal outlets in the U.S. — The New York Times and Washington Post. The company detailed its efforts to fight “misinformation” at the Munich Security Conference on February 16. Google boasted that users trust the information they find on Google Search, and that information “comes from the reporting of journalists,” One of the solutions to fight “misinformation” was the Google News Initiative, which supports “quality journalism.”
During the first half of her live 12-minute interview with fired Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Tuesday’s Today show, NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie managed to ask a version of the same question seven different times as she repeatedly fretted over whether President Trump was a “national security threat” to the United States.
ABC’s chief national correspondent Terry Moran reported on Senator Bernie Sanders’ newly announced 2020 run with an embarrassing amount of enthusiasm, on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. Just as the media did covering his 2016 campaign, Moran spoke glowingly of Sanders' radical agenda and hoped that many Americans would “feel the Bern."
Anyone watching Sunday's interview between MSNBC host Al Sharpton and Georgia Democratic Congresswoman and gun control activist Lucy McBath would think that background checks are currently not required for gun purchases if they didn't already know better.
Bernie is back and the journalists that celebrated the socialist Sanders in 2016 are pushing him again. On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Terry Moran cooed “He made democratic socialism cool for millions of voters.” When he ran in 2016, instead of laughing off the candidacy of a candidate who is so left he spent his honeymoon in the USSR, liberal anchors and reporters couldn’t contain their excitement over how Sanders could energize the Democratic base.The following are just a few examples from the MRC’s archive of liberal reporters, hosts and celebrities championing the out and proud socialist.
Monday was the first chance for ESPN First Take debaters Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman to weigh in on Friday's NFL settlement with former player Colin Kaepernick, who, along with Eric Reid, had sued on the grounds of collusion to keep them out of the league for kneeling. Both First Take commentators have consistently defended Kaepernick's social justice cause, but on Monday Kellerman said Kaepernick can claim victory and Smith disputed that.
The stock market has been on the rebound in 2019, after what some called an “irrational sell-off” in late 2018. The network evening shows covered that “market meltdown” throughout the fall, but have spent a lot less time covering recent gains.
Free speech social media site Gab is creating a program that will add a comment section to every website. Gab is a free speech alternative to Twitter. It is creating a downloadable add-on that will attach a comment section to every website. This will make every article, video, tweet, product, and many more into platforms for open critique and debate. The comments will be processed through Gab itself, which uses the U.S. Constitution 1st Amendment as its standard of moderation. This will be the site’s workaround to liberal websites that have either removed comments section or heavily moderated it to silence critics.
If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was of course his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." The unbelievable gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off her MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and his The Beat.
On Sunday, in the aftermath of revelations that the alleged hate crime attack against actor Jussie Smollett was probably a hoax orchestrated by Smollett himself, MSNBC contributor and former federal prosecutor Paul Butler was among those liberals apparently trying to cling to the possibility that the high-profile actor might be telling the truth because he "has not changed his story."
Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aren't big on math. It just gets in the way of setting utopian, unachievable goals. Take Sanders today. At the very beginning of his formal announcement video, he set this goal: "an unprecedented, grassroots campaign of one million active volunteers in every state in our country." Um, just a little problem there, Bernie. The population of your own state of Vermont is only 627,000. How can you possibly not know that? And there are five other states with populations under one million. So, yeah, it would be "unprecedented" indeed if in several states Bernie could round up more volunteers than the total of every man, woman, and child living there!
NPR's Morning Edition on Monday split its Andrew McCabe interview into two segments. On the home page they were promoting Russiagate: "Andrew McCabe, Ex-FBI Deputy, Describes 'Remarkable' Number Of Trump-Russia Contacts." On air, that segment never mentioned his lying under oath to the FBI. There was a second segment simply titled "Andrew McCabe Discusses His Firing." McCabe's answers were often refusals to answer, which Inskeep spun as "exceptionally careful." Kudos to NPR for trying to explore it, briefly.
In an appearance on the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Prime Time, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell blasted “the triumvirate of radical left-wing Hollywood, radical left-wing news reporters, radical left-wing politicians” for jumping to conclusions with the Jussie Smollett case.
Since Empire actor Jussie Smollett first came forward with his hoax of being a victim of an alleged hate crime on January 29, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have spent a whopping 157 minutes on the story during their flagship morning/evening news programs. They spent all that time on what was an increasingly apparent hoax, but the infamous torture of an autistic white man at the hands of black teens and broadcast live over Facebook, drew a little over 24 minutes. Both cases happened in Chicago.
