You can't always identify a media organization's bias based solely on what they say. As this story proves, what a news organization keeps quite about can often be just as important, if not more so.
Timothy B. Lee is the Lead Writer for the "New Money" section of the reflexively leftist Vox.com. He has looked at what has happened to the city of St. Louis during the past 60 or so years, and thinks that Ronald Reagan is largely to blame. Too bad for him that most of the reasons for St. Louis's decline have absolutely nothing to do with the Gipper.
When not completely obsessed by Trump-Russia collusion allegations, CNN is focused like a laser on the truly monumental matters. An example was Friday's in depth analysis by their New Day panel on the details of a handshake between President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron following the Bastille Day parade in Paris. Such importance was given to this discussion that hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota even brought in outside experts to break down the handshake for us.
On Thursday, CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert reminded everyone how lewd and pathetic his behavior has been, tearing into White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway as “Satan's trophy wife” during a shtick mocking her most recent Hannity appearance defending the Trump administration from Russian collusion claims.
You can’t disagree with the left anymore without some sort of ulterior motive ascribed to you. After all, if you were a good person, you would think like them.
You don’t have to have been president of the United States to qualify for the “Miss Me Yet?” meme, suggested Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky on Thursday. Tomasky contended that it’s “a tragedy” that Donald Trump became POTUS instead of Hillary Clinton and opined that Clinton would have been a “good” president, though he thinks Republicans might have prevented her from being “great” by holding “impeachment hearings…over far smaller matters than the things we know the Trump family has done. That would be rough, but I know this much…She wouldn’t be an international embarrassment.”
More than a year after Huffington Post co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington stepped down from her position, the staff at the HuffPost website is preparing to go on a seven-week, 23-city bus tour to “Listen to America” as part of an attempt to enhance its “new, less-partisan image.” Lydia Polgreen, a former editor with the New York Times and the current editor-in-chief of the site, announced on Thursday, July 13, that the purpose of the tour is to learn about people in America by traveling across the country this autumn.
New York Times economics reporter Alan Rappeport furthered the myth that Trump’s health bill would be “cutting deeply into Medicaid” spending in Thursday’s Times, “Risky Mix: Cutting Taxes For Rich and Aid for Poor.” He was harsher on Twitter: “Cutting taxes for the rich and aid for the poor is proving to be a politically toxic combo.”
On Thursday's The Situation Room on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Accord, CNN's Jim Acosta and Jeffrey Toobin both pushed the notion that the liberal view of global theory is "settled science." Toobin: "Do we always talk about climate in terms of the politics of it? The climate is actually a science issue. And the science -- the climate is going to continue warming regardless of what his base wants or, you know, it's actually science and not politics." Acosta: "It's settled science."
The new Charlie Gard hearing could make the difference between life or death for the 11-month-old. His parents, in their fight for him against his hospital and U.K. courts, have won the support of world leaders as well as U.S. medical experts. But instead of covering the infant’s hearing Friday, the networks prioritized the “highly anticipated” photo of pop singer Beyonce’s twins.
Hollywood has never beat around the bush when it comes to proclaiming its politics -- and that includes the shows and stars the industry honors with nominations and awards. Yesterday, July 13, the complete list for the Emmy nominations was released. Most of nominees were shows or actors that supported Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton (or Bernie Sanders, in the case of Susan Sarandon), and supported the LGBTQ in their political correctness. In fact, some of the shows nominated have been so outspoken and even scandalous in their content that it seems as if the media will willingly praise only political, liberal programs as quality television.
Seventeen Magazine praised Selena Gomez’ new “Bad Liar” music video. Yet poorly-masked pedophiliac themes were at the heart of this music video’s plot – which might prove disturbing for Seventeen’s target audience: minors. Music artist and actress Selena Gomez, who first found fame on kids’ shows like Barney & Friends and Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place now records top 50 songs like “Hands to Myself” and “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” She also performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show in 2015.
The National Governor’s Association (NGA) conference is set to take place this weekend in Providence, Rhode Island featuring a speech from Canadien Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The leftist state is clearly excited, seeing as how The Providence Journal spent the first 80 words of its lead story for Friday’s print edition touting Trudeau’s rear end.
Providing some unintentional comedy, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Thursday lectured a conservative Congressman, telling him, “I’m not the left. I’m a journalist.” Collectively, many Americans must have thought: “What’s the difference?” The haughty defense came after Harlow demanded of Congressman Jim Jordan: “Are you comfortable with that huge reduction in Medicaid funding?”
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC's Joy Reid was displaying a severe case of projection as the far-left AM Joy host claimed that the Republican party is "built on" "resentment," "victimhood," and a "persecution complex" -- all of which would be more aptly applied to her own liberal ideology.
