CBS This Morning co-hosts on Monday fawned over the new president of Planned Parenthood, cheering “yay!” that she appeared on the show. The hosts also lamented that the organization, responsible for three million abortions, had been “politicized.” The journalists also allowed Dr. Leana Wen to repeat the mostly bogus claim that the abortion provider offers “cancer screenings.”
After Republican Congressman-Elect and military veteran Dan Crenshaw appeared on Saturday Night Live over the weekend to publicly forgive comedian Pete Davidson for a skit mocking his service, on Monday, the newly-elected Texas lawmaker was interviewed by the hosts of NBC’s Today show. In part, co-host Savannah Guthrie thanked him for his “incredible act of generosity” in agreeing to go on the comedy show.
ABC’s 20/20 special on Michelle Obama Sunday night was about what you’d expect from the same network who hailed the “transcendent, communal joy” and “dancing in the streets” after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008. While just a few weeks ago, ABC’s 20/20 on Melania Trump spent nearly every minute on controversies and strife in the White House and their marriage, this episode on the Obamas was a complete 180 in tone and content, with not even a brief mention of Obama's own controversies.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in response to last week's midterm elections: The liberal media are spinning this as a typical off-year result for the incumbent president's party, and a referendum on President Trump, but I think they’re wrong. These aren't typical times and Republicans should have kept their majority in the House, especially running against so many leftists funded by radicals clearly out of the mainstream.
At last a crack in what has been the media's almost universal support for Colin Kaepernick has surfaced. A new Medium blog contributor named Kitanya Harrison has until now been unwavering in her support of the social justice warrior, but she takes a sharp deviation from her past literary praise for Kaepernick to relay troubling information from a reader about the America-hating ex-quarterback. It's that he mistreated women in the past, he is propping up an abuser of women and that Kaepernick and his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, are guilty of ethical improprieties.
Here is a math question that even most Common Core students could easiliy answer: Which is a greater number, 40 or 63? The answer is all too obvious...unless you have a political agenda. And one such person is Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski.
Her Mika math was on full display on November 12 when she angrily asserted that it is "laughable" that the 2018 Democrat House seat gain of up to 40 seats is not as bad as the 63 seat GOP gain in 2010 during the Barack Obama administration.
New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica pompously condemned an entire genre of music for not writing about what he cares about: Gun violence. It follows the paper’s recent expressed annoyance that country isn’t on the entertainment industry’s ineffectual gun-control bandwagon: "It should be neither remarkable nor courageous for a country singer to address the plague of gun violence in this country. That mass shootings tore apart a country music festival a year ago and a country-music bar just two days ago makes the genre’s silence on the matter irresponsible and infuriating."
Snopes.com keeps attacking conservative website articles as "False" when the facts favor the conservatives. On November 9, these "fact checkers" tagged LifeNews.com as "False" for a headline that said "Arizona Senate Candidate Kyrsten Sinema Voted to Allow Abortions Up to Birth."
New York Times Nicholas Kristof has taken on an old nemesis, the National Rifle Association, in two multi-media pieces over the last two weeks – two weeks that have witnesses shooting tragedies. The Sunday Review brought the photo-heavy “Witness the N.R.A’s Evolution -- It’s magazine covers show how it shifted focus, to fanaticism.” A week earlier he said the group had been "hijacked by extremist leaders."
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is known for saying ridiculous things seriously and pretending they’re reasonable while leaving everyone else scratching their heads. He even once suggested it would be “okay” if CNN’s ratings would plummet 40 percent after President Trump left office. Well, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Stelter beclowned himself when he suggested the liberal media somehow “underplayed” the size of the so-called “blue wave” that supposedly swept the nation on Election Day.
During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host spoke with comic Sarah Silverman, who recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Commenting on her achievement, Silverman remarked “in a time...where anti-Semitic crime is up 57 percent since this douche bag has taken office, it is not lost on me that I am very lucky that I get a star and don’t have to sew it on my clothes,” a reference to the Star of David sewn on the clothes of Jews in Nazi concentration camps.
Last week, NBC’s Saturday Night Live united the left and right in outrage when they targeted former Navy SEAL and now Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw for ridicule regarding his missing right eye, which he lost in an IED blast. But during this weekend’s show, they invited Crenshaw on to bury the hatchet and to deliver a very important Veterans Day message.
As the contentious Florida gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races moved on to a mandatory machine recount, they do so under a cloud corruption as Democratic election officials were accused of voter fraud and other forms of misconduct. Despite the fact that Florida courts had already ruled twice against Democrats, ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning new programs ignored the orders for transparency. The networks preferred to keep the truth hidden.
On Sundays, the Washington Post Outlook section publishes a feature called "Five Myths" about a subject, where experts try to puncture false impressions. On November 11, the subject was "Cable News," and the author was University of Virginia professor Nicole Hemmer. Hemmer did a credible job explaining false impressions about Fox News and conservatives, but Myth No. 4 was an unintentional laugh riot: "MSNBC is the liberal response to Fox." She claimed MSNBC "still tries to model balance," as in "Republicans" like Joe Scarborough, and Nicolle Wallace.
Paul Krugman’s Friday New York Times column, “Real America Versus Senate America,” is another dose of Blue State urban smugness from Krugman. He becomes the latest liberal who, while accusing Trump of violating all political norms, turns around and advocates tossing aside traditional political structures like the Electoral College, the Supreme Court, and now the Senate when they interfere with Democrats obtaining power. Krugman also asks, :how do we explain those Senate losses?" without mentioning Brett Kavanaugh.
