CNN host Jake Tapper concluded Sunday’s State of the Union with a self-righteous rant he thought was going to make President Trump look like he was doing nothing to combat the coronavirus. Instead, Tapper came off as foolish since many of the supposedly tough questions that had no good answers actually did have answers, ones that CNN would like to be kept hidden from their liberal viewer base.
MRC's Brent Baker tweeted out the lowlights of Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, socially-distanced but still socialist-inclined. Maher interviewed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and insisted Trump's coronavirus response is more of an impeachable offense than previous "trumped-up" causes like Russian collusion and using Ukraine to damage Joe Biden. Maher also cracked that Trump "isn't FDR or JFK, he's LOL."
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid wonders whether Fox News could be liable to viewers suing the network for having misled them regarding the dangers of the coronavirus. So much for all the alarm in the liberal media about legal punishments for news organizations in the Trump era.
Not long after they had insisted President Trump treated the coronavirus press briefings as though they were “a reality TV show,” ABC and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos invited former Vice President Joe Biden onto This Week to buoy his oxygen-less campaign. One of the softballs the Clinton lackey tossed to Biden encouraged him to blame Trump for the deaths caused by the coronavirus. While the crisis was only part of their discussion, Stephanopoulos steered clear of the recent sexual assault allegations against his guest. Something he was used to doing from his time in the Clinton White House.
ABC’s chief White House correspondent and White House Correspondents Association president, Jon Karl was the latest liberal journalist to decide they wanted to make a fat stack of cash by publishing a new anti-Trump book (Front Row at the Trump Show). As such, his Sunday appearance on Good Morning America was just another chance to hawk his product. He insisted President Trump was making a mockery of the coronavirus crisis and was using the daily press briefings as “a reality TV show.”
Shannon Sharpe, co-host of Fox Sports 1's The Undisputed program, ripped Jared Kushner and his father-in-law President Donald Trump over federal handling of the coronavirus. Deadspin writer Chris Baud defended Sharpe in a post titled "Shannon Sharpe Says What We Were All Thinking: Jared Kushner Is an Incompetent Ass Bag", and it all goes downhill from there.
Within a half-hour of President Trump concluding Saturday's coronavirus briefing, CNN brought on Brian Stelter so they could wail in agony about Trump starting the meeting by berating the press. As usual, CNN painted the liberal media as "really crucial" in this crisis, and the president as a "very dangerous" oaf.
MSNBC allowed Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace to host their coverage of Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, predictably, she twice interrupted to rip President Trump with like-minded guests Kimberly Atkins and Steve Schmidt. In Schmidt’s case, he blabbered that Trump was “completely over his head,” “incoherent,” “mentally….unraveling,” and “rambling.”
As we near day 20 or so of coronavirus quarantine, the wailing and gnashing of liberal teeth on social media is reaching a fever pitch. Hollywood celebrities have reached new lows in their anger for the president and conservatives, with venom-filled entertainers like comedian Sarah Silverman fully admitting that they “hate” President Donald Trump and what she considers pro-Trump media.
The nation’s main domestic Spanish-language networks have largely refused to pre-empt their evening newscasts in order to carry the daily White House press briefings on the Trump Administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. At best, viewers receive piecemeal information that is filtered through the network’s own biases. At worst, viewers are exposed to outright fake news.
At the start of what would become a true tour de force, President Trump began Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing with a lengthy opening warning of mass death and a tough week ahead for the country as we fight this pandemic. As part of that, he spent roughly a minute excoriating some in the liberal media for “spreading false rumors and creating fear and even panic with the public” that’s “so bad for country” and “the world.”
One of the most disturbing tactics of “fact checkers” is claiming they can fact-check the future. Predictions are not facts. To declare a prediction is "Wrong" is political, not factual. AP's "Fact Check" team decried Trump "making a baseless claim of surging suicides if the U.S. economy remains mostly shut." They said "There's no evidence." That's because it's in the future! But experts disagree on what will happen.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid and fellow MSNBC host Ali Velshi pushed for a British-style national health care system during the coronavirus pandemic even though there are reports that the country's National Health Service (NHS) has fared poorly during the current crisis. In fact, if one crunches the numbers, the overall per capita death rate from COVID-19 has been substantially higher so far in the United Kingdom than in the U.S.
So let’s take a look at just what the Leftist State Media has been dishing during the coronavirus crisis. From Vox on January 31st: “Is this [coronavirus] going to be a deadly pandemic? No.” From The Washington Post on February 3rd: “Why we should be wary of an aggressive government response to coronavirus. Harsh measures tend to scapegoat already marginalized populations.”
On her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid, speaking with failed presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, noted that the rates of coronavirus infections and deaths are disproportionately high among African-Americans. Replying, Gillibrand blamed it on "institutional racism," in both health care and our economy.
