Worried that Democrats have not yet made a successful case for the impeachment of President Trump, during NBC’s special coverage of the hearings on Thursday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd urged Democrats to expand the testimony and call more witnesses. He insisted that “there’s more bread crumb trails to follow” and that Democrats still need a “closer.”
If the idea behind wall-to-wall broadcast and cable news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment hearings was to shift public opinion, then it’s not looking good for the Democrats. According to Nielsen, the numbers have steadily edged lower throughout these hearings: 13.1 million for Day 1; 12.7 million for Day 2; 12.2 million for Day 3; and now 11.4 million for Day 4. That’s an erosion of about 13% during the course of the hearings.
Liberals complain about Big Tech platforms that allow for free and unfettered speech in political advertising. It seems as though some of these companies are listening. Google announced on Nov. 20 that it was restricting microtargeting on election ads on the platform.
The Grammy nominees were announced earlier this week and of course, there were the top 40 favorites, the hip-hop stars and a couple of good artists. The hype revved up and Hollywood outlets began debating who deserves what and why. But there was one surprising take by the nation’s premiere Abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. The professional baby killers took to Twitter to congratulate the nominees for their contributions to their “healthcare” provider.
The View returned Thursday after being interrupted by this week’s wall-to-wall impeachment hearings coverage, to discuss that very topic. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin claimed President Trump was running scared because Democrats had the smoking gun. However, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman weren’t convinced and pointed out how far removed Democrats were from public opinion on impeachment.
Cenk Uygur, former MSNBC host and co-founder of the leftist YouTube channel The Young Turks, has announced his candidacy for the seat that Katie Hill resigned from in disgrace, the 25th Congressional District in California. One of his campaign promises that I'm sure he will be able to fulfill is to fight Republicans like "someone who's going to rip their face off." The Hollywood Reporter article about his upcoming campaign is headlined "Cenk Uygur Unloads on Rivals in Race to Replace Katie Hill in Congress: 'I'm Going to Maul Them.'"
During a discussion on Thursday’s Today show about the impact of Wednesday’s impeachment hearings, co-host Savannah Guthrie amazingly admitted that the American people agreed with conservative National Review editor Rich Lowry and were generally opposed to the Democratic attempt to remove President Trump from office.
The true intentions behind a Telemundo story on how Latinas are “harnessing power and influence” in the nation rise to the surface like a dead fish- to wit: aligning this up and coming, powerful demographic with the left-leaning “influencer” agenda at Comcast NBC Universal.
As impeachment frenzy sweeps the nation it has become clear that both sides are cite the transcript of the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as their key piece of evidence to make their respective arguments. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle naturally did the same on Tuesday before the day's events on Capitol Hill got underway, citing the transcript as proof that Trump is a lying liar who lies all the time, but it was they who were the ones spreading misinformation.
A Twitter account that had been previously retweeted by President Trump was censored by the platform. Breaking News Live News had tweeted a story about Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, on Nov. 20.
Last week, South Park aired a classic episode that skewered the trans athlete phenomenon. But IndieWire author Jude Dry, whose pronouns are listed on Twitter as “they/them/theirs,” was not amused. Dry's IndieWire article this Wednesday hilariously claimed the episode “provoked an immediate and universal backlash,” (only if backlash means laughter).
The Democrats are facing a grim choice for 2020. Nominate someone who they fear can't complete a sentence and wanders off in his thoughts, or take one of the other contenders and face the prospect of an "electoral blowout" in the Rust Belt again. That was the take of the Morning Joe crew today.
Clearly Vogue magazine doesn’t care about its readers. If it did it wouldn’t be exposing them to a 73-question interview with barely articulate stripper-turned rapper Cardi B. The “Bodak Yellow” artist talked about motherhood, her career and making what she calls “shmoney,” but also made sure to heap praise on Bernie Sanders, hate on America and mention which U.S. president is her least favorite.
On Thursday, it was as if all three network morning shows were reading from the same liberal script as journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS all touted how “impeachment took center stage” during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate. In addition, all three networks eagerly seized on the Democratic contenders labeling President Trump a “criminal.”
Another Democratic debate and that means it’s time for another appearance by Michael Moore on MSNBC. Last time, the cable network let the far-left filmmaker rant for 12 minutes on the need for a liberal 2020 nominee. On Wednesday night, Moore talked, with just a few minor interruptions, for seven minutes and declared, “I am the center” of the Democratic Party.
