Defending Joe Biden over his remarks about having worked with segregationist senators, Joe Scarborough says that Franklin Roosevelt did the same, and as a result, "FDR passed Social Security, passed the New Deal and he saved this country and saved poor people like my parents in the Deep South." In fact, the New Deal did nothing to "save the country." The Depression lingered after its adoption and it was only sometime after the beginning of WWII that the emerged from the Depression.
Tuesday’s installment of NBC Nightly News’s pre-debate, Democratic propaganda campaign featured Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and her “Big Idea” to “cancel about 95 percent of student loan debt and to make college, technical school, two-year, four-year all fee-free and tuition-free.” As with the previous 10 of these so-called “Big Ideas” from the 2020 Democratic field, correspondent Harry Smith offered no analytical or expert takes on the Senator’s plan, only some weak questions about the policy in which he let her explain the concerns away.
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony, calling him a “kook” elevated to “metaphysical status” within the Republican Party. He ridiculed Laffer’s theory as “provably untrue” and based on a “fake curve.”
Well, that’s awkward. NBC’s Today celebrated 25 years at Studio 1A in Rockefeller Center on Thursday. The show’s hosts marked the occasion with a snazzy montage full of memories... except for one. Missing completely from the retrospecitve was disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer.
With federal investigations looming and President Donald Trump making statements in favor of regulation, Big Tech companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are being forced to weigh their options.
In the wake of terror attacks, Big Tech companies are being taken to task over content policing. The June 26 hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee will feature testimonies from Facebook, Twitter, and Google’s parent company, Alphabet. According to Bloomberg Law’s coverage, Facebook’s head of global policy management Monicka Bickert, Twitter’s senior strategist for public policy Nick Pickles, and Google’s global director of information policy Derek Slater are going to testify.
With Planned Parenthood back in court trying to prevent the state of Missouri from revoking its abortion license, the crew of CBS This Morning went to bat for the abortion provider on Thursday, highlighting their defiance of a state regulation requiring a second pelvic exam 72 hours before an abortion and uncritically repeating President Leana Wen's talking points.
On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America surprisingly devoted a nearly four-minute report to actual investigative journalism, examining corruption allegations against Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. At the top of the morning show, fill-in co-host David Muir promoted the upcoming story: “...the ABC news investigation into Biden’s son....Did Hunter Biden and his firm make millions overseas in countries where his father, the former vice president, acted as the top U.S. diplomat?”
Those hoping to tune into a late night show as a reprieve from politics would have been unable to find refuge in Wednesday night’s edition of Full Frontal. Host Samantha Bee devoted her opening monologue to attacking Republicans and urging certain Democratic presidential candidates, including Montana Governor Steve Bullock, to drop their White House bids and run for the Senate instead.
On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back on the pro-choice rallying campaign interviewing Dr. David Eisenberg, the medical director of the last Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Missouri. Dr. Eisenberg began by stating: “I really appreciate the opportunity and for you to tell our story so well in national media and explain what’s been happening here for woman in Missouri.” Maddow has been keeping a close eye on Missouri over the last few weeks, frequently warning viewers ad nausea that it may be the first state to “go dark” on abortion.
Social media sites are already pretty effective at silencing conservatives. You’d think they wouldn’t require more coordination with the Democrats to continue. But technology’s biggest corporations are joining together to make sure that media is “responsible”. It seems they want more control over what is posted on the internet and what will be available to the public.
The diversity enforcers at Netflix has decided that viewers haven’t been hammered with enough LGBTQIA+ representation. Apparently, last year’s 53 shows with LGBT characters weren’t enough. To remedy this gross inequity, Netflix signed a major deal with transgender activist Janet Mock yesterday.
Bette Midler apparently has a new career as a limerick writer. She’s using it as a weapon on the people she hates the most: the Trump administration. The actress who considers herself a feminist does not consider her own words to be demeaning to women.
Democratic presidential contenders lashed out at frontrunner Joe Biden on Wednesday after he bragged about the ability to work with segregationists in the Senate, saying he could get things done with anyone. While all three networks covered this Democrat-on-Democrat fight Wednesday night and Thursday morning, CBS allowed the least amount of coverage: A scant 2 minutes and 34 minutes out of a total two and half hours of available air time.
For years on end, conservatives across the country have been forced to endure relentless, hateful smears directed at themselves, the President and basically anyone who is not a Democrat. Congressional Republicans are often a target for the far-left late night hosts. On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late- night liberal sherpa, Jimmy Kimmel, had the gall to criticize those Republicans in Congress for asking their Democrat peers to use respectful language when speaking of the President.
