During Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host opened the show by slamming the media for their scant coverage of “the new numbers on the drug crisis in America,” which found that “more than 70,000 Americans died of drug ODs in America last year.” According to Carlson, the media sees the drug crisis as “just middle America dying, no big deal.” He then contrasted the non-coverage of the drug crisis with the media’s coverage of Joel Arrona-Lata, an illegal immigrant apprehended by ICE as he drove his wife to the hospital for a C-section.
Appearing on MSNBC’s The Beat early Tuesday night, frequent MSNBC guest and Fordham University professor Christina Greer smeared the memory of late University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts as “a girl in Iowa” that “Fox News is talking about” instead of going all-in on the plea deal for Michael Cohen and the verdict in the Paul Manafort trial.
In a Monday Telemundo News report about a Trump event honoring the members of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency, anchor José Díaz-Balart seemed more intent on promoting the Abolish-ICE movement, with a large portion of the 46-second report spent on “the group of Democrats”, as opposed to the actual event held in the White House.
On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, fill-in host Chris Jansing displayed the latest example of liberal journalists picking up on misleading polling on how much Americans support abortion, as she spoke with a group of pro-life activists who are lobbying Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
During a visit on Tuesday's Fox & Friends, Daily Wire editor-in-chief and conservative podcast host Ben Shapiro slammed the celebrities who criticized President Trump during the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) the night before. Shapiro began sarcastically: “So much courage! You know how much courage it takes to be in Los Angeles in front of a group of cheering people who hate President Trump and chat about how terrible Trump is and how terrible the wall is?”
Socialist Venezuela is in the midst of an historic economic collapse, but you’d never know it if you relied on the three network evening broadcasts for your news. On Monday, the country’s government issued a new currency to counter a record rate of 1,000,000 percent inflation, and none of the networks said a word. This followed the July 30 concession by President Nicolas Maduro that his administration’s “production models... have failed.” Again, the evening newscasts were silent.
Lisa Miller wrote an embarrassingly obsequious profile of the incredibly vulgar and aggressive anti-gun student activist David Hogg for the August 20 New York Magazine, as Hogg's 15 minutes of fame continues after the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.: "Like so many young men in so many foxholes before him, Hogg discovered in himself a powerful drive not to leave this Earth without making a mark...."
One would think that the “most significant” killing of a terrorist “since [Osama] bin Laden” would warrant some attention. But ABC and NBC on Monday and Tuesday morning ignored the drone strike attack that likely wiped out Ibrahim Al Asiri. The killing was done in 2017, but is only being revealed now. Unlike the other two networks, CBS offered full reports both Monday and Tuesday on al-Asiri’s death.
During a softball interview with Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell avoided asking a single question about the left-wing lawmaker’s radical proposal to impose stringent government regulations on any business with over one billion dollars in revenue.
Facebook has reportedly been ranking users on their “trustworthiness” by giving them a score between zero and one, according to a report in The Washington Post.
Michael Shannon: He’s a great actor, but, right now, he’s behaving like an unhinged lefty maniac. In a recent interview with Playboy, the Waco actor gave his two cents on the Trump administration in such an overzealous manner that it left many fans wondering whether he was in the terminal stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
CNN is only the “facts first” network when those “facts” don’t disrupt their liberal narrative. The network proved that yet again on last night’s CNN Tonight when host Don Lemon shot down a Trump campaign adviser after he accused the media of reporting negatively about ICE agents.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on FBN’s Varney and Co., Tuesday, to decry the attempts from social media giants to quash free speech. Asked for the solution to all this, Bozell offered four suggestions to Twitter and Facebook: “First clarity. What do they mean by hate speech? That's the center of all this.”
Rapper Cardi B may or may not be pro-life, but she just used an major music awards ceremony to send a pro-life message.
Cardi B won awards for “Best New Artist,” “Best Collaboration,” and “Song of the Summer” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Aug. 20. In her remarks, she told critics that working women can pursue their careers and still have a baby.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to hand wringing over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while serving as one of Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s lead investigators in the 1990s, wanting to ask then-President Bill Clinton accurate, detailed questions about the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The supposed “journalists” were aghast at the prospect of Clinton being held accountable.
