MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews may have a show entitled Hardball and screech “let’s play hardball” at the top of each show, but it rarely squares with reality. Wednesday was no different as Hawaii Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard appeared for a friendly chat bashing the Saudis but was not pressed on her coziness with the murderous Assad regime in Syria.
Liberal journalists have been throwing wild accusations at Facebook for enabling “fake news,” foreign interference, and “conspiracy theories.” Now even its own fact checkers are upset.
Fox News media reporter/anchor Howard Kurtz broke the scoop that the Trump White House cancelled the annual Christmas party with the press. This shouldn't be that much of a surprise, in that the Trumps haven't attended the White House Correspondents Association dinner, and after the court fights over the brief suspension of CNN yeller Jim Acosta's press pass, it was not going to be a chummy get-together.
During Tuesday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host engaged in a discussion about the feisty Oval Office meeting between President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; specifically focusing on Pelosi describing the border wall as a “manhood issue” for President Trump. Guest April Ryan basically called President Trump a sexist for his treatment of Pelosi in the Oval Office, in addition to effectively smearing him and all other supporters of a border wall as racists.
On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt were gleeful as they discussed Nancy Pelosi striking a deal with “rebel” Democrats to ensure her position as Speaker of the House. They both agreed that a contentious Oval Office meeting with President Trump had given Pelosi a boost during one of her “best weeks in politics.”
Unfortunately, actress Alyssa Milano is back in the news again … again, and this time her activism seems to have taken on a new more insidious form. Parents be warned, the #metoo champion and physical embodiment of Brett Kavanaugh hatred has just signed a deal for a new line of children’s books that promote a healthy dose of progressive activism.
The liberal ladies at The View predictably went nuts on Thursday’s show over the new Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic out in theatres entitled “On the Basis of Sex.” Co-host Sunny Hostin, an ABC legal analyst was particularly enthusiastic, running out of adjectives to describe how much she loved Ginsburg and the film to stars, Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer.
On Thursday, a day after Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski unleashed a disgusting slur against Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, mocking him as a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” the MSNBC journalist was absent from the show. Co-host and husband Joe Scarborough deemed this a “long-planned family event.”
On Thursday, only NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to First Lady Melania Trump slamming the media during a Fox News interview aired Wednesday night. CBS This Morning completely ignored her comments, while ABC’s Good Morning America only allowed a few seconds of coverage.
The media don’t like it when people point out their direct ties to the left. The Washington Post defended liberal billionaire George Soros and his funding of left-wing journalism outlet ProPublica Dec. 13. The paper lashed out at a GOP governor who pointed out ProPublica gets funding from Soros and other liberals.
Zeal for eradicating “hate speech” can go too far on Facebook. Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, a leader in the Islamic reform movement, posted a humorous Christmas video on December 11 mocking jihad. Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, a leader in the Islamic reform movement, posted a humorous Christmas video on December 11 mocking jihad. He was then promptly notified by Facebook that his video was removed and his account was suspended for 30 days, because he “repeatedly posted things that aren’t allowed on Facebook.”
CNN’s Jim Sciutto was one of the many journalists this week who attacked President Trump’s comments about border security during his meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday. Sciutto even did a whole segment “fact-checking” the president on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom. Unfortunately for him, actual experts from DHS called out his reporting on Twitter with a brutal comeback.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch describes President Trump as "pathetic" and "defanged," going from being a "malignant cancer" to a "benign cancer." And so it is for the cast of Morning Joe. No matter how they might have denounced President Trump the day before, as the sun rises they are forced to begin yet again their labor of trying to take Trump down.
It's becoming routine for the left-stream media to deviate from the sports stories unfolding in front of them to mine for politically incorrect social media history. It happened again Saturday night when Kyler Murray, the Oklahoma University quarterback, was named winner of the Heisman Trophy, college football's top honor. In practically no time at all, the media found "anti-gay slurs" he'd written on Twitter six years ago and shamed him on his biggest night. Outkick The Coverage blogger Clay Travis examined this alarming media trend and says we are "enabling rabid jackals of mob-enswirled outrage" and the public is sick of it.
On Wednesday’s Hardball, two separate MSNBC panelists suggested that not only did then-candidate Donald Trump’s hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal “[rob] the American people of their right to vote,” but that he was not a “democratically elected” President because of them and possible collusion with the Russians.
