CBS This Morning ran a strange segment Monday morning about office party etiquette this holiday season with New York Times contributing writer Jennifer Weiner -- who awkwardly dragged Justice Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford into it. As the left tends to do, Weiner made the concept of a Christmas party political, worrying that it just another way women would be sexually harassed for what they wear.
Oklahoma University's superstar quarterback Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, but by Sunday he was being shamed by the media for something that has absolutely nothing to do with his incredible 2018 football season. Instead, Murray became just the latest high-profile athlete to be busted by social media "cops" in the sports media exposing anyone who has written "anti-gay slurs" in their youth.
The very same day stock market gyrations captured the media’s focus, government agencies announced a decline in the U.S. poverty rate and an increase in household net worth.
But the networks skipped any and all good economic news on Dec. 6, and only made room that night for negative economic stories about Wall Street and the market’s “wild ride.” The networks also showed a preference for bad news as markets were climbing, often skipping record highs in 2017 and early 2018.
Morning Joe began the week reveling in President Trump's problems, with Donny Deutsch saying that the President's predicament is just "the tip of the iceberg" and insisting more than once that Trump will pay "for the rest of his life."
CBS’s Madam Secretary is closing in on its 100th episode, so it’s bound to get crazier and crazier from here on out. Case in point, the latest episode reignites “the war on fake news” with more Russia conspiracies. Are there any other kinds anymore?
The CW once again kickstarts its big DC Comics crossover event with The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. December 9 started the three-night “Elseworlds” event with “Elseworlds Part 1” on The Flash. While The Flash is not nearly as unbearably one-sided as a certain other comic-book series whose time slot it took this Sunday, that didn’t stop the show from dropping a discredited wage gap reference, of all things.
The topic of white nationalists was handled in a heavy-handed way during the December 9 episode of Fox’s Rel. Rel (Lil Rel Howery), an African-American man, is a charge nurse in a Chicago hospital. In “Hate & Hip Hop,” his patient turns out to be a racist who fainted during a white nationalist protest rally. The white patient isn’t impressed when Rel calls him a blood brother, as they both have O negative blood.
We have already seen how the networks have avoided the connection of Les Gilet Jaunes or Yellow Vest protests in Paris to the Global Warming ideology promoted by French President Emmanuel Macron which led him to impose a fuel tax that he was forced to back away from due to the burden it placed on ordinary citizens. However, another bit of misreporting from much of the mainstream media involves properly identifying who it is during these Yellow Vest protests that are doing the looting and desecration of monuments with graffiti.
CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program.
Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada underlined how well he matches his paper's red-hot hatred of the current president in his list of the "most memorable books I read in 2018." Cable-news personalities made the list, both good (CNN's Amanda Carpenter) and bad (Fox host Jeanine Pirro).
The liberal media grew increasingly excited at the prospects of impeaching President Trump over the weekend. So much so, that some were outright encouraging Democrats to pursue it. During an appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude Jr. warned Democrats that if they didn’t impeach Trump, then they’ll be punished by their radical liberal base.
Michael Isikoff, Chief Investigative Correpondent of Yahoo News, is unable to find any real proof of Trump-Russia collusion based on the latest court filings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller when he appeared on CNN's December 8 Smerconish show. But first, Isikoff agreed with Smerconish on the appearance of Democratic hypocrisy on impeaching over sex. Rep. Jerrold Nadler "eloquently" argued Clinton shouldn't be impeached for lying to conceal an affair with an intern. So how is Nadler going to impeach using sketchy witnesses like Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti?
According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration.
On CNN's New Day on Sunday, Michael Moore, a former Obama-appointed U.S. and Democrat state senator in Georgia, boasted: "you're hearing sort of the death rattle of this presidency, of this administration. I don't know that we need to call the undertaker yet, but it's certainly time to pick out the cemetery."
The Right Scoop professed surprise that CNN morning anchor Christine Romans reported on the latest unemployment figures without the usual agony over the Trump administration.The jobs number was "weaker than expected," they said. But Romans suggested the expectations were too high at this "very low" unemployment rate:
