After Monday’s debut of the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell established that it would be an unquestionable home for liberal bias, night two cemented that as O’Donnell and her team provided more liberal bias, whether it be the President’s “racist tweets,” letting a Democratic donor interview “The Squad,” or blaming an upcoming heat wave to climate change.
Bowing to pressure from the likes of CNN’s Brian Stelter, NBC Nightly News pivoted on Tuesday to condemn the President’s behavior toward Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) as “racist” and, along with ABC’s World News Tonight, shame Republicans for not being as anti-Trump as Democrats.
The radical fringe of the Left came to Philadelphia last weekend to the annual “Netroots Nation” conference. If ever there were an event that was ripe for parody, this was it. Yet you didn’t hear any negative coverage of this event from the broadcast networks. ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS ignored it, while others worked to make these watermelon-aborting fanatics look as normal as they could.
CNN host Chris Cuomo used President Trump’s tweet criticizing the left-wing Democratic congresswomen known as “The Squad” as an excuse to trash the President and his supporters during his almost always pompous “Closing Argument” Monday night. Throughout most of the segment, the chyron at the bottom of the screen read “Trump Uses Racism as Political Tool to Rally Hateful Voters.”
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. It seems this adage encompasses the entirety of Chris Matthews’ programming on Hardball. There is no nuance in labeling President Trump as a racist, however that does not deter Matthews from partaking in this practice as a routine. In fact, Tuesday night’s Hardball episode could be seen as a rerun to those who are not loyal viewers.
It was a great day for the pro-life cause on Tuesday as the board of the abortion group Planned Parenthood embarrassingly fired president and Dr. Leana Wen after only eight months on the job. Unfortunately, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News saw no reason to inform their viewers about Wen’s ouster as the organization charged with murdering unborn children has found itself in dire financial straits. In contrast, NBC Nightly News gave it a full, one-minute-and-41-second report from White House correspondent Kristen Welker.
On Tuesday morning, CNN continued their coordinated tirade against President Trump’s tweet thread that rocked the news cycle. It only took moments after New Day went on the air they began berating Trump. They hosted a panel of anti-Trump commentators who took aim against the President, and the hosts didn’t hold them back.
For Fast Company’s run-up to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the magazine's Charles Fishman dove into the contemporaneous coverage from July 1969, focusing on how the print media reporting on “liberal lion” Sen. Ted Kennedy driving off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island that killed his passenger was overshadowed by the moon landing the next day.
CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer might be viewed as an iconic journalist and bastion of truth, but the Trump era has shown that he’s a liberal pundit who mirrors, say, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. On Tuesday’s show, Blitzer came back from break to insist that voting in support of a House Democrats resolution “condemning the President's racist comments...shouldn’t necessarily be a partisan issue.”
On Monday night, MSNBC star Rachel Maddow gushed over Rep. Ilhan Omar, letting her give two-minute speeches in between softball questions. When it was over, Maddow proclaimed "thank you for your time this evening. I'm sure these last few days have been incredibly stressful. You taking time to talk us about it is an honor." When the liberals grouse that Trump will only go on Fox News to get softball interviews, imagine Omar sitting down on Hannity. This is the polar opposite. Genuflect, genuflect, genuflect.
The Washington Post isn’t known for being a paper friendly to religious believers. After all, this is the same paper that famously said of some Christian believers: “[They] are largely poor, uneducated, and easy to command.” But on Tuesday, the paper found at least one believer worthy of respect: An evangelical Christian who is also a climate scientist.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) hammered Google from the very beginning of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing, “Google and Censorship through Search Engines.” In his opening statement, the senator began by saying, “Any inquiry into Big Tech’s censorship practices must take a hard look at Google.”
Dissent is, once again, the highest form of patriotism or at least it is according to CNN Inside Politics host John King. During his Tuesday show in discussing the war of words between President Trump and "The Squad," King compared their grievances against Trump and the country to the Boston Revolutionaries of 1773.
White House Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow called himself a “happy camper” about the state of the U.S. economy and criticized those making it sound like the country is in recession. “I do want to say and repeat that the U.S. economy is very strong and that’s what the jobs report [shows], and wages are rising,” he told anchor Stuart Varney on Fox Business’ Varney & Company July 15. Kudlow criticized those trying to gloss over the good economic news.
The 2019 Emmy nominations have been unveiled and (not so) surprisingly there are lots of lefty Hollywood specimens up for the illustrious TV awards. While many of you might be actually excited to see these people awarded for talent, we’re here to focus on which liberal heartthrobs get their rear-ends kissed by the industry the most.
