The fallout happened after Pirro answered host Sara Haines question as to why she called her book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals, The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”. Saying she wasn’t “an idealogue,” she slammed the Mueller investigation as a “fake investigation based on a fake document” (the unsubstantiated Trump-Russia dossier.) That upset host Sunny Hostin who shot back, “It was not only based on that and you know that.” CNN commentator Ana Navarro, filling in for Joy Behar, used Pirro’s initial comment to try to pin her into a corner on President Trump:
Samantha Bee is demanding women take action against a man who could make abortion illegal. Or so she says. On her show Full Frontal July 18, host Samantha Bee ordered women to get “hysterical” over President Trump’s pick for next Supreme Court Justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. She needn’t worry – they already have. But Bee’s fuss over abortion sounds like crying “wolf” after she called pro-lifers “d**kheads” of “toxic bullsh*t” in 2016 – not to mention other abortion outbursts.
CBS This Morning co-host (and Democratic donor) Gayle King on Thursday angrily reacted to Donald Trump's mocking of potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden. Yet, the very same King in 2012 did not object to Biden smearing Republicans as wanting to put black voters “back in chains.” In fact, she attempted to fix the then-Vice President’s gaffe.
At a time when feminist media place utmost importance on careers, Paula Faris is making a revolutionary move: She’s changing roles at ABC to focus on a faith project – and to spend more time with her family. On Wednesday, Faris announced her departure from The View and the weekend edition of Good Morning America for a new position at ABC.
Is anything Michelle Obama does about the midterm elections "nonpartisan"? Politico is trying to pretend it can happen. Edward Isaac-Dovere began: "Michelle Obama is jumping into the 2018 campaigns with a voter registration initiative that will be strictly nonpartisan — exciting and frustrating top Democrats who’d like the popular former first lady to actively campaign for candidates." With a team of Obama staffers and A-list celebrities...."nonpartisan." Oh please.
In a departure from President Trump’s previous attitude towards Silicon Valley, Trump on Thursday tweeted a defense of Google against a fine levied by the European Union.
On MSNBC’s All In Tuesday night, and then again on CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut repeated his claims that the current moment is comparable to 9/11. Each time, the hosts failed to ask him to clarify or add nuance to his extreme statement.
New York Times reporter Trip Gabriel was clearly smitten with Richard Ojeda, a Democratic congressional candidate in West Virginia, who rose out of the Times-supported teachers strikes in that state. The gushing headline matched the story’s enthusiasm: “How to Flip Coal Country? Ask the Democrat in Combat Boots.” Gabriel was busy arranging flattering vignettes for the Democratic candidate: "Even more than for his politics, Mr. Ojeda is known for his big personality, with a gung-ho idea of leadership and a rousing speaking style. He is George Patton with an Appalachian twang and minus the profanity."
If it seems like the New York Times is constantly hammering U.S. President Donald Trump, that’s because it is. However, the “Paper of Record” was also so eager to attack a politician with a similar nickname as “Germany’s Trump” that they failed to verify several false quotes the item attributed to him. The original story debuted as a “Saturday feature article” that focused on Markus Söder, the premier of Bavaria and a man who got his nickname because of “his tough views on immigration, his ‘shrewd’ communication skills and his distaste for political correctness.”
Somini Sengupta made Wednesday’s New York Times front page with “In India, Summer Heat Becomes a ‘Silent Killer’ -- 111-Degree Days Hit Poor the Hardest.” First, insert the Mort Sahl joke about a post-Armaggedon Times headline: "World Ends, Women & Minorities Hardest Hit." Then notice that one obvious solution goes almost completely unmentioned: Air conditioning. Why not? That’s where the paper’s knee-jerk concern for the poor crosses its knee-jerk “save the planet” instincts. Air conditioning may be good for people, but “it’s hurting the planet.”
The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want homeowners armed is even scarier.
Between President Trump’s trip to the NATO summit last week and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, the liberal media had been trying to portray Trump as a bull in a china shop damaging relationships with allies and upending global norms. During Wednesday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime, CNN host Chris Cuomo tried to continue that narrative only to have it turned around on him by Brigadier General Anthony Tata (U.S. Army Retired).
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews threw a fit Wednesday night in defense of the liberal media, gushing over a reporter delaying his questions in the White House Press Briefing to give NBC’s Hallie Jackson more time and accusing the White House of running “Kremlin-style” communications office. Matthews misidentified also but clearly took a shot at Fox News's John Roberts for insufficient standing up for CNN’s Jim Acosta during a July 13 press conference in England.
Hulu’s lascivious drama Harlots debuted its second season last week, and the show picked right back up where it left off last season with grotesque, violent and pornographic depictions of life for prostitutes in 1700s London. Wednesday’s “Episode 3,” the show decides to get more digs in at Christianity and one character’s fall from grace in a particularly offensive scene.
House Republicans gave Democrats a chance to walk-the-walk on Wednesday when they put on the floor a nonbinding resolution in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the agency many liberals had been declaring should be abolished. The opposition to ICE failed spectacularly as only 34 were willing to vote “no.” It was an embarrassing turn of events that went completely unreported on the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
