On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher; MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham; and CNN host Fareed Zakaria all admitted that it is not necessarily "racist" for one to have concerns about whether immigrants are assimilating properly into American culture after Maher brought up Zakaria's recent article criticizing Democrats on the subject. After Zakaria made an argument similar to his recent commentary, Meacham -- a former Newsweek editor -- noted that assimilation by immigrants has always been a legitimate topic of concern before blaming Republicans for making it look "racist" to have such a debate.
This is a good demonstration of the worst use of anonymous sources -- not to provide sensitive and valuable information, but to insult people with no consequences. Yahoo News is circulating a report from Tom Porter of the dying husk of a magazine called Newsweek about how President Trump announced his daughter Ivanka would had the U.S. delegation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in southern India in November. The magazine writer noted a former Time reporter tweeted that an Indian diplomat, whose name he didn't reveal, remarked on Ivanka: "We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes. It's in our national interest to flatter them.”
During Monday’s MTP Daily, MSNBC’s Katy Tur proved once again she wasn’t ready for prime time when she got into a heated argument with Ohio Representative Mike Tuner about whether or not President Trump had ever denounced hate groups during the 2016 campaign. “I don't think he did. I was there every day,” she chided her guest who was accurately saying Trump did.
NBC’s Midnight, Texas focuses on the denizens of a small town named Midnight which includes vampires, witches, spirits, and other supernatural creatures. Overall, the show, while never passing into the realm of interesting, tows the line between the fantasy and political. Unfortunately, now they’ve brought in symbols from Christianity, which means it’s time to be called out.
Even though the next presidential election won’t be held for more than three years, Donald Trump’s campaign staff is already hard at work, including the production of a 30-second television advertisement entitled “Let President Trump Do His Job.” It doesn’t take long for the ad to attack the Republican official’s “enemies” in both the mainstream media and Congress.
On Monday, President Trump called out the racist hate groups involved in Saturday’s chaos in Charlottesville, Virginia. In addition to calling them “evil” and “repugnant,” Trump said: “Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.” This full throated denouncement was exactly what the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) craved from the President, but now that they had it, they shifted their attacks to: “What took him so long?”
Colin Kaepernick's protest during the 2016 NFL season is on the verge of getting dwarfed. This weekend's start of NFL preseason games and the left-stream media narrative that President Trump failed to "condemn far-right demonstrators" at Charlottesville has ignited a heightened new state of athlete protests.
Journalistic integrity took another Monday afternoon on MSNBC, with another casualty in the liberal plot to paint President Trump as a closet neo-Nazi Klansman. Piling in on the liberal media frenzy following Saturday’s sad events at Charlottesville, MSNBC’s Chris Jansing anchored a segment with Trump critic Mark Potok, formerly of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Veteran Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein on Monday offered a self-important warning, insisting that journalists face a “crisis” as they deal with the “morally” unfit President. Talking about Donald Trump’s reaction to the racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Watergate-era reporter declared that the real conversation among those in D.C. is “how do you deal with a President who morally, ethically, has no regard for the law in their view and therefore is unfit to be president in a way that none of his predecessors were?”
The never-ending saga of CNN’s Jim Acosta making a fool of himself in front of the Trump White House took another turn on Monday, as he hurled questions at President Trump following a White House event that allowed the President to respond by calling him “fake news.”
A baby is in the forecast for one ABC meteorologist. And while the network often devalues unborn life, her pregnancy announcement on air boasted a pro-life message.
Liberal media outlets have now fully entered tin foil hat mode en masse, but none so more as the failing New Republic. And leading this merry band of lunatics is it’s Editor-at-Large Bob Moser, who today penned an article titled ‘Donald Trump, Neo-Nazi Recruiter-in-Chief’.
Feminists can’t wait to find any reason, no matter how far-fetched, to justify their activism. Behold the feminists behind the Women’s March. On August 14, the facebook page for the Women’s March reshared the NRA video that sparked their 17 mile march in July. The video was captioned with the words, “If you didn’t get why we protested the NRA, watch this ad. The act of terror in #Charlottesville is the clenched fist of truth they called for.”
Moments after President Trump condemned white supremacists by name during a White House address on Monday about the violence in Charlottesville, a panel of MSNBC reporters and pundits immediately proclaimed that the President “didn’t do enough” and should not get credit for meeting the “lowest possible bar.”
MSNBC’s Katy Tur weighed into the Charlottesville controversy as she interviewed Black Lives Matter creator, Patrisse Cullors, Monday afternoon. Seeking Ms. Cullors opinion on the matter, Tur allowed for her to incessantly rant about how the Trump base was composed of white nationalists that were seeking to overrun the country. “The white supremacists who showed up to Charlottesville, that is Trump's base.” Cullors emphatically declared, “And that base is not isolated. It is directly related to Trump's policies and the policies that have continued to harm and kill black people and our allies.” Tur offered no pushback to this nor any questions citing Black Lives Matter previously violent history in context of the current situation.
