One of the worst things about the media in the Trump-era is the surprising amount of journalists who think that the history of bad things began on January 20, 2017. Nowhere, is this more evident than the situation at the border and Tuesday's edition of New Day on CNN was no exception. 



Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are no strangers to hyperbole and dramatics on The View. After Behar said Trump was on his way to exterminating illegal immigrants last week, Whoopi claimed that Trump was on his way to criminalizing and exterminating gay people on Wednesday’s show.

 


Washington Post economic editorial writer Charles Lane called out proponents of socialism citing Nordic countries as a “model” for the kind of socialism they want to see replicated by America. Because, while they are “success stories,” they aren’t really the socialist utopias claimed by liberal presidential candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-VT). Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY), has also claimed her policies “resemble” these countries.



Appearing on Wednesday’s Today show to preview the upcoming Democratic debates, NBC News political analyst and former Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill was surprisingly honest when she predicted the events “probably will be the end of the road” for several candidates and urged viewers to “tune in tonight just to see who makes a fool of themselves.”



Like the rest of the media, CNN heavily hyped a tragic image of a drowned father and daughter trying to cross the Rio Grande river to enter the country illegally. On CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, host Alisyn Camerota and John Berman brought on legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, to pre-emptively condemn Trump for comments he hasn’t even made yet and bash him as responsible for the pair’s deaths.



On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says that President Trump is afraid of Robert Mueller's testimony because Mueller represents "good versus evil." Donny Deutsch says that Mueller's testimony won't change much, and warns people against the "post-Mueller depression" they experienced when the Mueller report first came out. Mika agrees with Donny on "post-Mueller depression." And for saying that Mueller's testimony will be "useless," the Morning Joe panel vilifies Rudy Giuliani as "stupid, pathetic, grotesque" and a "critter."



Over a two-week period ahead of the first set of 2020 Democratic debates (June 10 – 23), NBC Nightly News ran a daily series they dubbed “My Big Idea,” in which they provided a platform to aid the candidates in reaching the public with their policy proposals. Almost nightly, anchor Lester Holt would openly admit that the 14-part series was essentially a Democratic propaganda mill with NBC correspondent Harry Smith making the policy pitches on behalf of the candidates. Smith also failed to provide any serious pushback or critical analysis of the policies he was helping to push.

 



On June 21, New York magazine published a shocking cover story, an excerpt from the new book by author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, titled What Do We Need Men For? Carroll described suffering a sexual assault in a Bergdorf Goodman department store dressing room. The alleged assailant is named Donald Trump. When did this occur? She vaguely guesses it “has to be in the fall of 1995 or the spring of 1996” because of what they were wearing. 



On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball stated in the A-block that the illegal immigration detention centers (yes, the ones the far-left thinks are concentration camps) are solely a Trump administration phenomenon and prove that America is “no longer....a haven for people around the world.” NBC correspondent Cal Perry reported from one such center in Homestead, Florida and proclaimed that “these facilities are designed very purposefully” with sinister motives.



U.S. national soccer team player Megan Rapinoe continues to draw media attention by shunning the Star Spangled Banner at the World Cup in France. Reliable left-stream USA Today writers are defending her and criticizing The Hill and President Trump for faulting her ongoing protest.



The CBS Evening News targeted GOP state Senators in Oregon for ridicule and scorn Tuesday night, after some went into hiding and others fled the state in order to block a vote on a controversial climate change bill. In a video call with one Senator, CBS correspondent Carter Evan wondered: “What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of democracy?”



On Tuesday morning, New Day slammed President Trump for the unsubstantiated claim that he sexually assaulted E. Jean Carroll in the late 1990s. On Monday night, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper interviewed Carroll to try to get her side of the story. The hosts refrained from airing the portions that may not portray the President’s accuser in the most appealing light.



Journalist E. Jean Carroll is making sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump, dating from the mid-1990s. Initially many journalistic outlets held off reporting her claims, which caused anger in left-wing social media circles. The New York Times editor-in-chief Dean Baquet has issued a groveling apology for not giving the thin allegations more intense play. The Times had a far different reaction in 1999, after Juanita Broaddrick came forward with her story of being raped by Bill Clinton. When it was Clinton being accused, the paper lamented the rush to judgement by other outlets. When it’s Trump, the paper’s editor lamented his own paper’s failure to rush to judgement.



In an embarrassing attempt to push the impeachment narrative, a whole litany of liberal Hollywood celebrities did dramatic readings of the Mueller report. The whole report is 448 pages of drab legal jargon, which is apparently perfect for a theatrical performance. 



Monday night, Rachel Maddow was back on her crusade for abortion rights highlighting the “sexual assault” of 100 abortion patients subjected to a state mandated pelvic exam and three-day wait period before their abortions. Maddow has been highlighting this apparent humanitarian crisis on her show since the mandate went into effect 3 weeks ago. It was repealed Monday, but not without casualties:
