President Donald Trump’s strategic silence on Puerto Rico’s earthquakes, while greenlighting billions of dollars in aid and a new major disaster declaration for the stricken U.S. territory, is forcing the liberal media into a most uncomfortable place...acknowledging that he was right all along.
On the front page of Saturday’s New York Times, reporter Lisa Lerer wondered why so many women were reluctant to vote for a woman (i.e. Elizabeth Warren) to run for president in “Taking Feminism to Heart, if Not to the Caucuses – Beating Trump Matters More Than Electing a Woman, to Some.” As is often the case, unfettered abortion rights was a priority: "Ms. Schlenker has seen how the current political moment has convinced her daughter that her rights could be taken away, and that sexism remains a force in both of their lives."
It’s one of the most blatantly biased things a media outlet can do: openly endorse a candidate running for office. But during CNN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered Saturday evening, Cupp and chief media correspondent Brian Stelter lauded The New York Times for making a televised spectacle out of their Democratic endorsement announcement happening soon. They would admit the Times had an editorial board that leaned far-left and would endorse “anyone but Donald Trump.”
One of the most dramatic contrasts in media bias is shown in coverage of protests. The Washington Post published a gushy article on the "Women's March" in D.C., but on the front page, the Post smeared the coming gun-rights protest in Richmond as an occasion to "fan the flames of a civil war."
As part of CNN’s day-long-pants-wetting resulting from Arizona Senator Martha McSally (R) calling out CNN correspondent Manu Raju as a “liberal hack,” CNN hosts Chris “Fredo” Cuomo (Cuomo Prime Time) and Don Lemon (CNN Tonight) railed against the Senator during the handoff between their shows on Thursday. Cuomo lashed out by describing McSally, the first female U.S. combat pilot, as a “punk” and later argued that her criticism of his colleague “should hurt her.”
Joy Reid's "body-language expert" Janine Driver says she believes Bernie Sanders was "lying" when he denied telling Elizabeth Warren that a woman couldn't beat President Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an appearance on the new season of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night, and was greeted by a raucous 35-second standing ovation for impeaching Donald Trump. Maher touted the Speaker as a socialist Margaret Thatcher -- "our Iron Lady" of the Left -- and worried Pelosi wasn't appreciated enough by the extreme-left sector of the Democrats.
While Elizabeth Warren routinely collects applause when citing her gender — and at this minute is using it to accuse Bernie Sanders of sexism — The New York Times stepped to the plate to assail The View’s Meghan McCain. Ms. McCain, of course, is these days famous for her co-hosting stint on the ABC show created by Barbara Walters.
Jacob Bogage of The Washington Post rapped President Donald Trump for dragging the NCAA football National Champion Louisiana State University Tigers into the impeachment debate Friday during their visit to the White House. He also accused the president of lying about trade agreements and harped about the Commander-in-Chief feeding fast food to Clemson's 2019 football champs during their White House visit last year.
The liberal Guardian covered VaughnGate, arguably the most important news story of the last 48 hours. Actor Vince Vaughn was caught, on camera, meeting President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. That wasn’t all. Vaughn appeared friendly with the Trumps, going so far as to exchange pleasantries during the meeting.
This week, CNN absolutely freaked out over Republican Senator Martha McSally calling one of their journalists a “liberal hack.” Hosts on the network raged over it as “indecent,” “disgraceful” and “hatred.” However one year ago this week, when it was revealed that Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar had tweeting that Israel was “evil,” the cable network only mildly chided her.
Amanda Marcotte in Friday's Salon compared the Republican senators at the impeachment trial of being a throwback to the Jim Crow era due to jury nullification. Her latest wacky shtick is that those Republicans will probably act as a throwback to Jim Crow due to jury nullification.
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, pseudoconservative pundit David Brooks noted that public opinion is moving the wrong way for people who want to remove President Trump from office, but he's "99.9 percent guilty" and Adam Schiff will "walk all over" Trump's new defense lawyers, like Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz, because "he has the evidence on his side."
In what is not really a surprise, Politico is looking at the trade deal with China through the lens of impeachment. According to Anita Kumar on Wednesday, the trade deal, which she labeled as "modest," is merely a distraction from impeachment. In fact, that is exactly what the title of her article says, "Trump hypes modest China deal, distracting from impeachment."
Anyone who was glad to see that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finally stepped out of the limelight is in for a surprise because streaming service, Hulu, is set to air a documentary all about her. Clinton used a promotion for the four-hour Hillary film as an opportunity to discuss the upcoming presidential election, which she described as “no ordinary time” before amusingly asserting that voters should support “the person most likely to win -- and not just the popular vote, the electoral college.”
