Don’t let any national journalist tell you that they don’t want to be a part of the story. On Friday night into early Saturday morning, CNN eagerly turned around not one but two promos touting their coverage of the Minneapolis riots, including the disturbing and despicable arrest of correspondent Omar Jimenez and his crew hours earlier on New Day. So, our New York and Washington-based journalists want to claim that they’re uncomfortable with the spotlight? Either that’s a total lie or they should have a word with their bosses about whether their dangerous work should translate into cheap promos.
Just before 1:00 a.m. Eastern Saturday, Fox News Channel’s America’s News HQ co-host Leland Vittert was chased, harassed, and heckled by violent, far-left rioters outside the White House and was forced to abandon the scene, having to toss back to Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream. Supposedly, the rioters were peacefully protesting Monday’s horrid murder of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American in Minneapolis.
On the same day that CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez’s live arrest on New Day became a leading headline, The Washington Post compared Jimenez’s arrest to George Floyd’s murder, and an entrance to Atlanta’s CNN Center was attacked, Prime Time host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon wanted viewers to know that, apparently, “CNN is not being victimized” and “not the news” at all.
Harvard went looking for a liberal corporate Bigfoot to give their 2020 virtual commencement address, and they landed Marty Baron, executive editor of The Washington Post. The man whose paper oozes arrogance at the top of every newspaper with the motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” Baron came to amend the slogan. Now, in the age of coronavirus, people die in darkness, not just their political system.
As the official coronavirus death toll reached 100,000 on Wednesday, CNN hosts Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon both cherry-picked data to misleadingly suggest that the pandemic has hit the United States harder than any other country as the two used charts contrasting the U.S. only to countries that have had death rates on the low side.
Along with stoking racial tensions and egging on Americans to distrust and/or hate one another, some corners of the liberal media decided Friday afternoon to remind us of their affinity for the communist regime in China due to their hatred for President Trump. During two special reports, ABC and NBC collectively decried the Trump administration’s actions on China pertaining to the Wuhan coronavirus as “distracting” from his response to the pandemic and a way of “playing politics.”
This afternoon on CNN Newsroom, sports journalist LZ Granderson seemed to justify the rioting, looting, and arsons happening in Minneapolis and all over the country Friday as patriotic. Speaking to host Brooke Baldwin, Granderson compared the violence to the Boston Tea Party and claimed that was a “riot” as well.
Liberal CNN commentator Van Jones on Friday surprised a lot when he blamed America’s race problems not on the Republican Party or red states in general, but on “white, liberal Hillary Clinton voters.” Talking about the George Floyd death and the violence and riots in Minneapolis, Jones blamed, “It is not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It is the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now, you know, people like that, ‘I don't see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all as the same, I give to charities.’”
The Babylon Bee has come under fire for its satirical posts on Facebook before, and it appears it’s happening again.
Big Tech officials are spooked by President Donald Trump’s push to regulate social media. And they are speaking out. The confrontation escalated when President Donald Trump tweeted his concerns that mail-in ballots could be "fraudulent.” Twitter then fact-checked his tweet as if his concerns were invalid, which prompted Trump to accuse them of “interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.” Since then he drafted an Executive Order which will use the federal government to strip Section 230 protections from companies that don’t behave properly as platforms for free speech. Since then, Big Tech liberals have been enraged by this order.
When the protests against the senseless killing of George Floyd started to turn violent, CNN’s Don Lemon insisted on still labelling the rioters and looters as mere “protesters.” MSNBC’s Ali Velshi — with a burning building behind him — told viewers “This is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly.” This is in stark contrast to the coverage given to the largely peaceful rallies by anti-lockdown protesters who just wanted to go back to work.
Twitter’s overreach has caused conservative leaders to declare an all-out political and legal response. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), sent an open letter to the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury on Friday to call for a criminal investigation into Twitter for violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) and Executive Order 13876. Cruz quoted the wording of Executive Order 13876 “which prohibits ‘the making of
any contribution or provision of… goods or services’ to persons designated pursuant to that
order,” including Iranian leadership.
Due to taping Friday’s show earlier in the week, the hosts of The View today didn’t get to talk about the violence in Minneapolis and all over the country, on today’s show. Instead, they spent most of the show talking with California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, where he only faced two critical questions about how he is handling his state’s COVID-19 response. He was however, invited to bash President Trump and Republicans in Congress, multiple times during the lengthy interview.
A CNN International story posted on the outlet’s website May 24 proved that the channel won’t let a deadly pandemic get in the way of pushing a left-wing feminist agenda, even if it must distort reality to do so: “Coronavirus is killing more men. But the lockdown is disastrous for women and their rights.” Never mind reports showing men were 50% more likely to die of Covid-19, since “experts say focusing purely on health data is dangerous.” What?
President Donald Trump hit back at Big Tech bias by signing an “Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship” in the Oval Office on Thursday. And he relied on information from the Media Research Center’s TechWatch to do it. Before Trump signed the executive order that interprets Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (CDA), he showcased a blog by NewsBusters MRC TechWatch staff writer Corinne Weaver headlined “Mueller Report Twitter Moments: 76 Anti-Trump Tweets, Just 1 Pro-Trump.”
