Al Gore was just one of the climate alarmists to link a recent iceberg calving to “the climate crisis.” The Guardian blamed climate change even before the massive iceberg A-68 broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf.
Gore tweeted “The Larsen C ice shelf has broken away from Antarctica, a jarring reminder of why we must solve the climate crisis” on July 12. Scientists studying the ice shelf said the opposite.
On Wednesday afternoon, Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes made his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, taking the media to task over their raucous, premature “dancing...in the streets” over the Donald Trump Jr.-Russian lawyer story.
As CNN continues their crusade to bring down the Trump presidency, New Day spent 93 percent of their three-hour program Wednesday covering Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump campaign's supposed collusion with Russia. The other seven percent was spent on baseball (~1.5%) and negative coverage of the GOP's healthcare bill (~5.5%).
The Washington Post is reading like an online dating profile these days. For proof, look no farther than its latest story by one abortionist who is “ready for someone to love me because I provide abortions” and even reassures readers that “dating an abortion provider can be cool.”
On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.
Why does Donald Trump bash CNN as an ideological purveyor of fake news out to get the President? Just look at the cable network’s app and see what headlines they are blasting out to viewers. Story after story shows an obsession with Trump and his children and no objectivity or perspective is apparently needed. As of 11:37pm ET on Tuesday night, four out of the top five stories on the CNN app were about Trump Jr. What was the fifth story? “Special ops forces among 16 dead in Marine Corps plane crash.”
Charlton Heston must be rolling over in his grave. The new Apes film cast is monkeying around with political statements. Set to be released on July 14, War for the Planet of the Apes is the third installment in the rebooted franchise. While some denied any intentional parallels to the Trump era, cast members and The Hollywood Reporter said the film eerily mirrors present day politics.
At Fox Business Network on Monday, Stuart Varney interviewed Zane Tankel, the Chairman and CEO of Apple-Metro Inc., the New York City metro area Applebee's franchisee. While discussing the impact of minimum-wage laws on his business, he effectively brought up another law, the one in economics known as supply and demand, informing Varney that "We have 1,000 less servers this time this year than we had this time last year."
On Tuesday, NPR's All Things Considered channeled its inner millenial by airing a full segment on smartphone apps for singles in the U.K. who are opposed to Brexit. Lauren Frayer played up how "many British singles...have started posting how they voted — 'leave' or 'remain' — on their dating profiles." She also spotlighted the "Better Together Dating" app, which apparently "bills itself as Tinder for the 48 percent. That's the proportion of British voters who chose 'remain' in last year's EU referendum."
Hillary Clinton was, in the words of Donald Trump, the original “Nasty Woman.” And she’s apparently proud of it.
The former Democratic presidential candidate used a picture to publicize her support of Samantha Bee and her “Nasty Woman” products. The photo, shared on Clinton’s twitter page, shows Clinton holding the ‘Nasty Woman’ shirt up to herself as she smiles into the camera.
One of President Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, made his rounds on the morning shows Wednesday to defend Trump from the media’s accusations that he must’ve known about his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. On ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos repeatedly tried to get Sekulow to admit Trump was complicit and would have to admit to that under oath, using media reports from anonymous sources as his basis of inquiry.
The Labor Department reported a “better than expected” jobs report on July 7, showing 222,000 jobs added in the month of June. However, ABC World News and CBS Evening News barely acknowledged the news spending just 12 seconds each just mentioning the number of new jobs and 4.4 percent unemployment rate. ABC reported June marked 81 straight months of job growth.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of how to pay for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall, co-host Alisyn Camerota seemed taken aback that Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King suggested shifting money from the food stamp program to help pay for the wall. Camerota fretted: "You want to take food from people that are s -- the people who are on the lowest rung in terms of the nation's safety net and their children -- in terms of food stamps, you're happy to take -- you're willing to take money from them to build the 1.6 or to give the 1.6 billion to the border wall?"
Left-wing media recently erupted after revelations of Congress’ allegedly “sexist” dress code that forbids women to wear sleeveless dresses. Journalists and celebrities tweeted their outrage. And, now, comedian Chelsea Handler is comparing the dress code to “Abu Dhabi.”
On Tuesday on MSNBC, as he was being interviewed by members of the press, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's audio suddenly and completely went away. After discussing a reported meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian "lawyer" named Natalia Veselnitskaya, Graham said: "I’m sure they (Trump officials) met with a lot of people during the campaign. I’m sure the Clinton campaign met with —" ... well, we don't know what he said after that. That's because the network's Kasie Hunt, clearly without warning the cameraperson involved, decided that she didn't want to hear about Mrs. Clinton, and that she instead needed to run over and speak with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
