On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, discussing the dust-up between Nancy Pelosi and "The Squad" [composed of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashid Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley] Julianne Malveaux urged her fellow Democrats to unite around their larger objective: "at the end of the day, the goal has to be to get rid of the orange orangutan."
Fox Sports claimed the World Cup soccer champion American team lifted the nation and a gender. The progressive sports blog SB Nation calls U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe "love" and "a godlike figure." One courageous sports writer isn't drinking that Kool-Aid though. Phil Mushnick, columnist for the New York Post, disputes those claims, says the American team invited scorn and calls Rapinoe a "a foul-mouthed stage hog."
Rush Limbaugh appeared on Friday's Fox & Friends and addressed the feuding between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the radical House freshmen like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Limbaugh said the fracas was funny, but insisted the Democrats will eventually unify for 2020. They're coming apart now just because they're so frustrated at failing to remove President Trump from office.
Left-wing newspapers certainly aren’t the defenders of free expression they used to be. Canada-based journalist Tracey Linderman filed a fear-mongering report for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper Tuesday, entitled, “Activists condemn Canadian cinema chain for screening anti-abortion film: Cineplex Entertainment criticized for screening Unplanned, which is said to promote falsehoods about reproductive health.”
MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted a two minute-long monologue to trashing President Trump’s social media summit on Thursday’s edition of All In. According to Hayes, “instead of social media companies like Twitter and Facebook, they invited a pack of Trump-supporting, race-baiting conspiracy theorists.” Hayes also described the event as an “ice cream social for trolls.”
While discussing the possibility of Robert Mueller’s upcoming testimony before Congress being delayed for a week, on Friday’s MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin, NBC News national security reporter Ken Dilanian laughably claimed that it has “not been easy” for Democrats to draw attention to the former Special Counsel’s report on the Russia investigation.
Newly released financial documents showed Former Vice President Joe Biden earned $15.6 million since he left office in 2016. Being rich in an era of left-wing anger toward the wealthy, might hurt his ‘Middle-Class Joe’ persona. Leave it to a CNN columnist to rush to Biden’s rescue.
Meet the Press host Chuck Todd joined Andrea Mitchell on the latter’s Friday show to talk about Alex Acosta's resignation as Secretary of Labor, but their subject matter eventually changed to Trump's poll numbers with Hispanics with Todd eventually asking, "How many different ways does the Republican Party want to alienate Hispanics?"
Wall Street experienced another record-setting day July 11, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 27,000 for the first time ever. But you would know little about that new record if you were watching the three broadcast evening news shows that night. And nothing at all if you watched NBC Nightly News.
Friday on The View, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was on the show to discuss her 2020 presidential run. Meghan McCain was the only host to ask Harris about her stance on decriminalizing illegal immigration, while the other hosts focused heavily on race-related questions.
Liberal media outlets hysterically condemned free speech defenders as “extremists” and “conspiracy theory peddlers” commenting on the White House Social Media Summit. At least six major news outlets ran with the same narrative — from CNN to NBC to The Washington Post. CNN Business headlined its article: “Trump invites right-wing extremists to White House 'social media summit,” smearing the event as an opportunity for “legitimizing fringe political allies.”
The journalists at CBS on Friday once again plotted strategy with a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. Talking to Senator Amy Klobuchar, co-host Anthony Mason worried that ObamaCare might be overturned. (Back in federal court again, it faced a skeptical reaction this week from judges.)
Apparently, audiences can’t get enough of the teen rape, masturbation, drug abuse, and dozens of penises that are showcased on HBO’s Euphoria. The popularity of the show has convinced the network to renew the grotesque drama for a second season. If audiences are lucky, maybe the on-screen penis count will hit over a hundred before the new season premiere.
Actor John Lithgow has been a busy bee lately, not only focusing on his decorated Hollywood career but also writing a book of political poetry about Donald Trump’s “corrupt” administration. In a video posted by The New Yorker’s Twitter account, Lithgow read an excerpt from his poetry on Trump’s relationship now-resigned Department of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, a man Lithgow believes covered for sex trafficker, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
The big tech censorship of conservative content and influencers across all social media platforms has raised questions about the impact the internet has on restricting free speech. To discuss the silencing of ideas that dissent from social media companies’ liberal worldviews, President Trump held a social media summit with prominent names in the conservative movement at the White House on Thursday afternoon. And surprise, surprise, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel let it be known he was unimpressed.
