Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appeared on The View Thursday to get the usual disdainful treatment that every Republican guest gets on the liberal talk show. It wasn’t the questions he was asked, but more so the rude outbursts, interruptions and snarky comments that came at every turn in the brief interview that displayed the hosts’ contempt for Trump supporters.
British actor Jeremy Irons knows his position as jury president of the Berlinale film festival would be compromised if he stuck to his moderate views on abortion and gay marriage, so of course he corrected the record as soon as the event began.
New York Times reporter Maggie Astor noted Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s fierce takedown of late entry Mike Bloomberg Thursday morning after the fiery Las Vegas debate, and betrayed both pro-Warren cheerleading and grievous gaps in her knowledge of popular political analysts: “Elizabeth Warren, Criticizing Bloomberg, Sent a Message: She Won’t Be Ignored.” Astor: "Even before the debate had ended, some commentators -- including the conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin...were criticizing Ms. Warren as 'mean,' 'angry' and 'nasty.' But others saw it quite differently."
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe distorted an Axios report on President Donald Trump’s economy to credit former president Barack Obama. The show ran a segment defending Obama’s tweet congratulating himself for today’s booming economy.

On Wednesday afternoon, as CNN host Brooke Baldwin devoted part of a segment to Pete Buttigieg responding to Rush Limbaugh's comments about him being a gay presidential candidate, CNN Republican contributor and never Trumper Tara Setmayer took the lead in bashing Limbaugh and President Donald Trump as she lauded Buttigieg's reaction as "brilliant."
The morning after the Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas Wednesday night, CNN host Alisyn Camerota was very worried Democrats were being too harsh on each other. In particular, she was bothered by the candidates comparing Michael Bloomberg to President Trump.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos worked with disgraced former Democrat congresswoman Katie Hill, to revamp her reputation.

The first three words of CNN’s analysis after Wednesday’s Nevada Democratic presidential debate, provided by chief political analyst Gloria Borger, summed up the panel’s consensus: “Bloomberg was awful.” Whether it was comparisons to the Titanic or getting punched in the face, the criticism only got worse as the liberal panel began to mock former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for being grossly unprepared to field the obvious questions about his record.
Socialism came up in Wednesday’s Democratic debate, but co-moderator Chuck Todd wondered if Pete Buttigieg is out of touch by NOT being a socialist. He even grilled billionaire Michael Bloomberg on whether his wealth is “obscene” and “should you have earned that money?” Talking to the millennial Buttigieg, the NBC journalist demanded, “In 2000, you wrote an award-winning essay. You praised Senator Sanders. You specifically praised him for embracing socialism.
I love that dystopian stories are “in” for young adults right now because, hopefully, they’re taking some of these messages to heart.
