On Sunday afternoon, MSNBC displayed the latest in a very small number of times when the dominant liberal media have admitted that the treatment of illegal immigrants in detention under the Trump administration has been very similar to what it was under the Obama administration in spite of the media treating the detention centers as if they were something President Donald Trump invented.
CNN host Jake Tapper was obsessed with Russian agents crawling all over the Trump campaign, including Trump himself. He kept asking Carter Page: Are you now or have you ever been an agent for the Russians? No? Okay, let me ask it another way: Were you ever a Russian agent? No? In that case, let me ask the same question again with slightly different wording...
In the days since President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, the liberal media have been bringing back their Russian collusion narrative in a very big way. They’re now openly pushing claims Trump committing treason, a crime punishable by death, and have been growing bold in suggesting the President was a Russian agent. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter even boasted about their new courage during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources."
On Saturday afternoon, MSNBC Live helped hype the "new trend" of parents who decide to disguise the gender of their children until they are old enough to decide which gender they prefer to be identified as. At 5:21 p.m. Eastern, substitute host Aaron Gilchrist set up a piece on the subject that was put together by NBC Digital about children who are referred to as "theybies" because their parents are careful to only identify them with gender neutral pronouns.
Following President Trump’s meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin last Monday, ABC was the first broadcast network to boost hysterical cries of “treason” from loony leftists. During Sunday’s This Week, the network appeared to be getting their employees fitted for their tinfoil hats as they kicked up the lunacy with incessant suggestions that the President was under the direct control of Russia.
An intolerant media voice is urging the rainbow-themed, LGBT-dominant U.S. National Women's 'Lesbian' Soccer Team to give the boot to a new Christian player. Christina Cauterucci's Slate.com headline spares no mercy for the "poisonous" Christian "bigot" Jaelene Hinkle, encouraging the team to: "Kick Her Off."
The Associated Press on Saturday reported a story headlined "Democratic socialism surging in the age of Trump." Reporter Steve Peoples began with Zak Ringelstein, a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in Maine against Sen. Angus King, a CNN favorite and an independent who caucuses with the Democrats.
Israel, always to blame at the New York Times. A front-page photo of fleeing Palestinian protestors at the Gaza border was deceptively captioned: “Israel Strikes in Gaza – Protesters at the Gaza border flee from an Israeli air assault on Friday. One Israeli soldier and four Palestinians were killed.” The picture introduced Isabel Kershner’s story , “Israel Launches Broad Air Assault in Gaza Following Border Violence.” From neither headline would you learn that it was the Palestinians that attacked first by assassinating an Israeli soldier, with Israel retaliating. Kershner’s story also implied faulty timelines making Israel appear the aggressor.
Okay. Let’s get this out of the way at the outset. The Trump press conference in Helsinki was a misstep. Which was corrected when seriously responsible people like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stepped up to the plate and respectfully said so. But. The but comes from the massive - and IOK do mean massive - media meltdown that instantly followed. Typical of the breed was my old colleague David Gergen over at CNN, who said in a discussion with Anderson Cooper (who himself called the presser an “embarrassment”):
Rob Reiner has a new movie named Shock & Awe that celebrates heroic liberal Knight-Ridder reporters who fought the Bush team’s case for war in Iraq. Liberal critics celebrated it as timely, but not as a great movie. It had a terrible opening weekend, grossing only $45,000 at the box office (or $459 a screen). Two movies that debuted on just four screens had much stronger openings.
The exchange between anchor Félix de Bedout and U.S. Senator Robert Menéndez on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, aired on a recent episode of Unvision's public affairs show Al Punto, is emblematic of what must change at Univision’s news division if there is to be an honest effort to engage U.S. Hispanics from all walks of life.
The list of those skeptical of Hollywood’s woke bona fides keeps growing. When the New York Times reported on serial sexual assault allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein in October it rocked Hollywood. A bevy of big names soon followed, from director Brett Ratner to Oscar winner Kevin Spacey.
Some quotes need no introduction because they are just so shocking. On July 20, 1998, Time contributor Nina Burleigh said this of Bill Clinton: “I would be happy to give him a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude."
CBS’s pay-cable Showtime channel is the latest backer of con artist/”comedian” Sacha Baron Cohen’s performance art, as in the movies Borat and Bruno. It’s a new TV show called Who Is America? and is designed, as usual, to mock Americans – mostly conservatives -- as gullible and stupid.
Those "independent fact checkers" at Snopes threw a red flag at conservative websites like the Daily Wire for a "mixture" of truth and falsehood on the question "Is San Francisco Registering ‘Illegal Aliens’ to Vote?" You have to get a kick out of the objection to the I-word and the A-word. They prefer "non-citizens." We wouldn't call their site "non-partisan." This is their breakdown, and as you can see, they object to what it sounds like, not how accurate it is:
