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.
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."
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.
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.
New on February 18: Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough asserted President Trump is just “trying to keep brown people out” and charged “‘Let’s Make America White Again’” is “all his presidency is about.” Guest analyst Eddie Glaude Jr., a professor at Princeton University, decried how the “machinery of government is moving on the basis of a known lie” and maintained “the constitutional crisis we’ve been talking about on the horizon with the Trump administration is here” and “we have to confront it.”
CBS journalist Lara Logan on Friday unleashed a blistering, uncensored attack on the extreme liberal bias polluting America's news outlets. Logan derided the “horses**t” “propagandist” press that has no interest in fairness. Appearing on the podcast of Mike Ritland, the foreign affairs correspondent and occasional 60 Minutes reporter berated slanted coverage in a way rarely seen by those in the mainstream press: “We’ve become political activists in a sense. And some could argue, propagandists, right?”
Jussie Smollett’s all but confirmed hate crime hoax provided a huge misstep for lefty journalists, celebrities and politicians, who were immediately ready to take his inconsistent story at face value and hit common Americans over the head with it. As soon as the Empire actor began peddling his bizarre story, the whole showbiz world came to his support, hysterically calling it evidence of a white supremacy and anti-LGBTQ epidemic.
The New York Times has finally answered the age-old philosophical question: “If a gay man chooses to be celibate, can he still be a noble victim worthy of media attention?” The answer is yes. All he has to do is complain to the Times. On Feb. 17, The Times published an article by Elizabeth Dias called “‘It Is Not a Closet. It Is a Cage.’ Gay Catholic Priests Speak Out.” The article is as awful as it sounds.
