Dr. Deborah Birx is a retired U.S. Army colonel who was appointed to her current job at the State Department by former President Obama, but that didn't stop Ali Velshi from attempting to do some petty fact checking of Birx's positive assessment of President Trump on Friday's The Last Word.
Two things are certifiably true about producer Jason Blum. He’s as left of center as his Hollywood peers, witness his previous comments about President Donald Trump. Blum’s films reflect that progressive spirit. Think Get Out and the Purge franchise as prime examples. But he’s not a fan of the woke mob, nor does he want to silence his ideological foes. He’s ready to talk to conservatives and listen.
As Americans go from store to store, hunting for available toilet paper during the Coronavirus crisis, it occurred to us here at NewsBusters, that this isn’t the first time TP has become a major media topic. Back in the spring of 2007, liberal singer Sheryl Crow floated the idea of a self-imposed toilet paper limitation. During a global warming college tour, Crow offered up this disturbing idea to college students:
Stephen Curry's Wednesday Instagram interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, gave viewers a break from "fake news" on COVID-19, writes Mark Medina of USA Today Sports. President Donald Trump is the alleged source of that fake news, and the Golden State Warriors all-star guard gave former President Barack Obama and other viewers "actual information."
Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler tweets much less than he retweets on Twitter. He retweets a lot of liberal-media themes. Sometimes his tweets are mangling the facts. Sister Toldjah at RedState noticed on Wednesday that Kessler “pulled a Schiff” the other day – he passed off a nasty parody of Trump as the real thing: "Hey, keep going to restaurants, go buy new houses, ignore that pile of bodies over in the corner."
New York Times congressional reporters Carl Hulse and Emily Cochrane gave the “tick-tock” on the Senate passage of a coronavirus stimulus package -- at least as told by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer: “Passing the Stimulus: Nonstarter at A.M. To 96-0 at Midnight -- How the polarized Senate found a way to negotiate a plan to help an ailing nation.” Schumer guided the story, with Hulse as usual happy to be pulled along by Democratic talking points. There was no mention of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sabotaging the crisis package by attempting to shoehorn in airline emission regulations and other Green New Deal items.
If you think the American media is too neutral toward Donald Trump? You might be playing tetherball around the pole of the leftist extreme. Take, for example, Mehdi Hasan, a columnist for The Intercept website and a "presenter" for al-Jazeera English. He was celebrated on Friday by the socialist British newspaper The Guardian for lamenting the alleged pro-Trump press. Nesrine Malik began this puff piece with the pure stuff: Trump's "lies" on coronavirus are costing lives, and the press is "partly complicit in those deaths, too."
You know you live in a healthy society when its “elite” journalists demand even more dead bodies than those being produced by a pandemic.
Former View co-host and current CNN host Lisa Ling appeared on her old show Friday to bash President Trump for calling COVID-19 the “Chinese virus.” The hosts let her spread lies about the President, while blaming him for her Asian friends and family being harassed. Ling even claimed that we can trust the numbers being put out by China’s communist government and that Trump should be asking them for help in combating the coronavirus.
If you want to feel hopeless about the coronavirus pandemic and be convinced President Trump has allowed the virus to wreak havoc, CNN is the place for you. But Thursday night on the Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson provided a reality check in showing how New York City’s far-left local officials initially dismissed the virus. And thanks to CNN, they’ve been able to absolve themselves of responsibility for the chaos inside their hospitals.
On Friday, MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin expressed relief that Democratic Massachusetts Congressman and failed 2020 presidential candidate Seth Moulton had withdrawn his support for a supposedly “xenophobic” House resolution condemning China’s authoritarian regime for its mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
On Tuesday, the PBS show Frontline debuted an hour-long documentary titled NRA Under Fire. It bashed the NRA for the whole hour, and wrapped up with bold little debate speeches by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. With the music noodling underneath, it felt like a campaign commercial.
Is it "hate speech" when liberals call for people to commit suicide? Occupy Democrats, a very popular liberal Facebook page with more than 8.6 million followers, posted a screencap of a tweet on March 26 that wished for the suicide of two Republican senators.
From Jimmy Kimmel yelling from his home at the “racist” Trump to “shut up” to Cher condemning the President as a “LIAR & MURDERER” the following are the most obnoxious examples of celebrities spewing their hatred against Trump during the coronavirus crisis:
Legendary Alien and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott seems a bit frustrated with President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic. The 82-year-old movie maker questioned the president’s mental health and intelligence on how he’s handled things for the past two months, calling him a “nutcase.”
