Liberal media outlets were quick to shill for former President Barack Obama’s recent swipes at President Donald Trump. CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post all pushed liberal spin stories elevating Obama’s tweet, which took two veiled shots at the Trump administration. One alleged the administration’s denial "of warnings of a pandemic." Obama’s other shot bleated about the consequences of “climate denial” over Trump's decision to roll back his auto emission standards.
On Tuesday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, NPR hoste Michel Martin did an interview with Stuart Stevens, one of those GOP strategists who became red-hot Never Trumpers. Stevens insisted "the original sin of the modern Republican party is race," and Martin used that to rip into Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush....inaccurately.
The White House Correspondents' Association abruptly decided to boot a conservative news network reporter from future White House briefings, announcing Wednesday night that she had violated the rules of “social distancing” during this COVID-19 crisis.
Politico is channeling a big fear of liberals concerning the coronavirus outbreak. Is this a fear that the deadly virus could spread exponentially? Perhaps. However, what really disturbs them is the possibility that President Donald Trump will get credit for keeping the number of cases relatively low which would make his reelection more likely.
On Morning Joe, Axios.com CEO Jim VandeHei denounced the "news pollution" of President Trump, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh. He says we have a societal problem of "information inequality," and that the governors of Florida and Georgia delayed issuing lockdown orders because they were living inside an "information bubble."
It’s unfortunate that CNN Prime Time host Chris Cuomo had contracted the coronavirus and had to be quarantined in his basement. But it was only a matter of time before he and the network exploited it to bash President Trump. They made their move on Wednesday when they used Cuomo’s diagnosis to dredge up the long-debunked claim that the President had called the virus a “hoax.” He even went to a disgustingly dark place and suggested that we might not survive with Trump leading the country.
White House correspondent Annie Karni isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic stop her from accusing the president of sexism and racism for daring to criticize women during the crisis (news flash: Trump criticizes everyone), under a headline harkening back to the Trump-Clinton content: “‘Nasty Woman’ Theme Returns Fully to the Fore.” The lead sentence to Karni's story on Tuesday focused on the truly important issue in these days of crisis: "As he confronts a pandemic, President Trump’s attention has also been directed at a more familiar foe: those he feels are challenging him, and particularly women."
Well, we didn’t see this coming from a mile away. #sarcasm Hulu’s drama Little Fires Everywhere has already flooded each episode with leftist propaganda. So, we knew it wouldn’t be too long before an abortion scene came up at the left’s beloved abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Naturally, CNN has been unable to resist their impulse to depart from solely informing the public about the coronavirus pandemic to insteadblame everything on President Trump as the death toll passes 4,000 Americans. One form has been refusing to carry portions of the Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing. On Wednesday, the lies and whiplash boiled over as CNN repeatedly dipped in and out of the briefing, including for an extended period of time to falsely claim that the briefing had been hijacked by an announcement on drug trafficking.
Despite the fact President Trump had banned flights from China from entering the U.S. back in January (a move praised by Dr. Anthony Fauci as crucial to the fight against the coronavirus), the CBS Evening News and White House correspondent Weijia Jiang spent a portion of Wednesday’s program pushing suggestions the administration had acted too slowly and it was costing American lives.
CNN hosts have done a terrible job of fact-checking guests when they imply President Trump said the coronavirus was a “hoax” – not that the Democrats created the “hoax” that Trump is an imcompetent boob who should be fully blamed for the spread in America. It happened again on Wednesday when Anderson Cooper interviewed CNN analyst Carl Bernstein, who claimed insiders told him Trump was "in a kind of meltdown," claiming enemies were "foisting this hoax on the nation."
Third-party fact-checkers have the ability to cause pages on Facebook to be suppressed. These fact-checkers, who are paid by Facebook, are putting efforts into fact-checking satire and editorial cartoons. In other words — opinion. Lone Conservative, a conservative media outlet designed for college students and recent graduates, was fact-checked by Lead Stories, an organization run by 8 CNN alumni.
The nation’s domestic Spanish-language networks have found a way to superimpose their most prominent public policy agenda item on their coronavirus coverage: by bemoaning the exclusion of illegal immigrants in the recently-passed economic aid package.
Hollywood’s hatred for President Trump and his supporters is a bottomless pit. Actor, Bernie Sanders lover and rabid Trump-hater John Cusack proposed another depraved solution to the pesky problem that is Trump: We will just impeach him again.
One of the internet’s foremost tech journalists accused Fox News of spreading a “fake news contagion,” downplaying COVID-19, and Fox News host Sean Hannity fired back. Recode co-founder and New York Times contributor Kara Swisher has a history of hating Fox News. She condemned Fox News in her op-ed “Fox’s Fake News Contagion,” on March 31 and quipped that consuming Fox News content is like “extreme senior sugar addiction mixed with a series of truly unpleasant and conspiracy-laden doughnuts.” She later added that “it sometimes feels like Fox News is eating my mother’s brain.”
