A day after sneering that the policy of separating illegal immigrants from their children is making the “Statue of Liberty weep,” CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King badgered a Mexican American to be easier on illegals. King talked to Frank, a man who works in construction.
On Tuesday's The View, the panel talked about Trump's border policy yet again, this time actually arguing in favor of more deportations, if you can believe it. Because, Obama! After host Sara Haines talked about how she can't believe anything Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says, giving examples of times she said inaccurate things, host Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin began by making the immigration debate about race.
After cable news channels CNN and MSNBC made 22 references to Nazi concentration camps and other human rights atrocities during coverage of illegal immigrant detention centers along the U.S. southern border over the past few days, on Tuesday, NBC decided to join in touting the extreme rhetoric. Specifically, the Nazi death camp comparison was repeated four times in three hours, across two of its morning shows.
Over the weekend, Justin Gaertner, a wounded U.S. Marine veteran, came under fire because a New Yorker journalist mistook his tattoo for a Nazi symbol. The staff writer and fact checker, Talia Lavin, took to Twitter to condemn the man who now works for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as a forensic analyst.
Outraged anchors and correspondents at ABC, CBS and NBC attacked the Trump administration for separating children from parents at the border as they overwhelmed their Monday morning and evening news programs with a massive 94 minutes of coverage on the detainment policy. Overall, in just six days of coverage (June 13 through June 18) the nets have flooded their broadcasts with almost three hours (176 minutes) of emotional segments that included pictures of crying children and accompanying anger from correspondents and pundits alike.
RESTON, VA – On Tuesday, the Media Research Center (MRC) and the recently formed coalition, Conservatives Against Online Censorship, called on tech giants Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to release blueprints by September 1 for how they will address the four following key areas of concern:
On Tuesday's Good Morning America, fill-in anchor David Muir held a sympathetic sit-down interview with Parkland activist David Hogg and his sister Lauren to promote their anti-gun activism movement called #NeverAgain. Muir pretended that Hogg had never been nasty to people who disagreed with him politically, and actually asked him what lessons he could share about how to deal with critics, with fellow young people.
The anti-conservative Southern Poverty Law Center just learned hate can be expensive. The SPLC had to “apologize” to a moderate Muslim organization and give it a nearly $3.4 million to settle a lawsuit. It added: “In a public statement, the SPLC’s president, Richard Cohen, explained that “Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam have made valuable and important contributions to public discourse, including by promoting pluralism and condemning both anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamist extremism.”
Actor Ron Perlman suffered a meltdown on Twitter, Monday, attacking the United States, smearing a Marine and launching into a profanity-laced tirade. The star of shows such as Sons of Anarchy and films like Pacific Rim freaked at the news that America would be withdrawing from the United Nations Human Rights Council:
United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement that federal law enforcement and judicial authorities are now working in unison to stop the rash of illegitimate asylum claims that have plagued the U.S. immigration system in recent years is meeting with stiff opposition from Telemundo, the Spanish-language sister network of NBC.
In an interview posted on Wednesday, Hollywood Director Rob Reiner criticized Robert De Niro's profane, F-bomb Tony Awards speech aimed at President Donald Trump because such antics end up "helping Trump." (He didn't mention that the crowd's gleeful applause and Hollywood elitists' support on social media for De Niro's rant contributed mightily to "helping Trump.") On Howard Kurtz's Sunday Media Buzz show, Reiner demonstrated his obvious belief that any other direct or indirect criticism of Trump, no matter how unhinged or utterly divorced from reality — a long as it contains no profanity — is just fine.
As the Media Research Center has documented over the past several days, the liberal media’s coverage of President Trump’s immigration policies have been incendiary, hyperbolic, and out of control. Since the liberal media was on an anti-Trump rampage, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson set out to put them in their place Monday night. To do that, he brought on Daily Caller editor Derek Hunter who detailed how the “diabolic” media sought to “prevent rational thought” on the immigration issue.
Actor Chris Pratt accepted the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards show’s Generation Award and delivered a powerful and moving speech to the young audience that was sorely needed. Taped on June 16, the show was broadcast June 18 and Pratt’s speech alone was worth slogging through the rest of the show.
The pundit class have lost their minds over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations.
Sooner or later, every terrorist group comes out with a list of demands. The violent, ultra-feminist group in AMC’s Dietland is no exception as they finally make their demands known in the June 18 episode “F…This.” What a surprise, it involves equal pay plus reparations.
