On Tuesday night, the broadcast network evening newscasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to cover two intriguing headlines that the public deserved to hear about. One pertained to the revelation that a former top FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation for leaking to the news media while the other story was the Democratic National Committee cutting ties with the anti-Semitic friendly Women’s March.
So, when is a crisis a crisis? From what viewers see on Telemundo, NBC’s sister network for the U.S. Hispanic market, it all depends on who says so: if the cry comes from liberal media allies and activists, it’s “I told you so.” But should the word ‘crisis’ come from the mouth of President Trump, it’s “no way, José.”
The wait is almost over for Hollywood’s big Roe v. Wade film as an exclusive first look has been released online. The teaser, unveiled on Monday, features some new details about the film including the fact that Hollywood conservative superstar Jon Voight will be portraying Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger. The trailer is also set to have a grand unveiling for the crowds at this Friday’s annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.
On Friday, the New York Times published an article revealing that the FBI opened a probe in 2017 to investigate whether President Donald Trump was acting as a Russian agent. CNN hosts spent more than three hours over the weekend brandishing the report as “devastating” news for Trump, but gave only a minuscule portion of the coverage included any reference to the disclosure by the Times that “no evidence has emerged publicly” which implicated the President.
Breaking into live coverage of the Senate confirmation hearing for President Trump’s Attorney General nominee William Barr, on Tuesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams informed viewers about the Brexit deal being rejected by Parliament in the UK. He insisted that Britain’s decision to leave the European Union was the result of Russian “election meddling.”
How does the New York Times (and especially reporter Peter Baker) treat accusations that the F.B.I. overstepped their authority in a politicized effort to take down a president? That depends on who is president. On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, Peter Baker’s “news analysis,” “Trump Faces ‘Nonstop’ War For Survival,” used an overhyped Times blockbuster about an FBI counter-intelligence investigation to spread the idea of Donald Trump as a “Russian agent.” Yet Baker took the completely opposite tack on the F.B.I. when the bureau was accused of abuse of authority against Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky investigation.
View co-host Sunny Hostin once again showed just how blindly partisan she is on Tuesday’s show, arguing that anyone who agrees with Trump’s border wall is a racist bigot against “brown people.”
On Tuesday, the network morning show that employed an alleged sexual harasser for 20 years thought it was great that shave company Gillette produced a commercial condemning “toxic masculinity.” Reporting for NBC’s Today show, correspondent Morgan Radford hailed the “big message” “going viral” and celebrated how “advertisers are evolving” by taking stands on social issues.
Between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, several Fox News shows have given attention to the case of three MS-13 gang members who took advantage of immigration law to enter the U.S. as unaccompanied children, and who recently allegedly made a stabbing attack in New York. Also of note, FNC was the only major network that recently informed viewers that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo pardoned a number of convicted former criminals, including several murderers, to help them avoid deportation.by the Donald Trump administration.
Facebook has been accused of blocking an ad for a new film about the Roe v. Wade case which legalized abortion across America. Producer/director Nick Loeb complained that he tried to use the “boost” feature on Facebook to generate hype for his anti-abortion film Roe v Wade, according to LifeSiteNews. Facebook replied by stating, “Your ad isn’t approved because it doesn’t comply with our Advertising Policies.”
Yesterday Gillette decided to use its authority as “The Best a Man Can Get” to school men in the art of proper post-#MeToo behavior. In an ad brimming with PC condescension, the shaving company held men in general accountable for the existence of “toxic masculinity.” In short, many people are not happy about it. BBC reported that Gillette is currently receiving major backlash and a wide boycott of its brand.
Never Trump Republicans who lose elections keep seeming to find new jobs on cable news. In an unsurprising move, CNN announced Tuesday that they’ve hired former Ohio governor and vocal Trump critic John Kasich as a senior political commentator for the network. The network also recently hired never-Trump Republican Rep. Mia Love, who lost her re-election for Congress this past Fall, as political commentator.
When new Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib ranted that Congress needs to “impeach the motherf***er” Trump, all three networks covered it. But when the Michigan representative was seen posing and meeting with a pro-Hezbollah activist who thinks Israel has no right to exist, ABC, CBS and NBC were silent. As reported by the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein, Tlaib appeared with Abbas Hamideh who tweeted, “I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. #Palestine.”
In her Sunday post on The Atlantic magazine's website, Jemele Hill makes a charge she can't support with the headline "The War on Black Athletes." She claims President Donald Trump is warring on black athletes, but she offers no broad-based arguments in support of her accusation. Hill's post is Part 6 in The Atlantic's "Unthinkable" series, "50 Moments That Define An Improbable Presidency."
The liberal media accused President Trump of "dodging" and "evading" Jeannine Pirro's question as to whether he'd ever worked for Russia. Yesterday, Trump made a flat denial, saying, "I never worked for Russia." But that didn't stop MSNBC's John Heilemann on Morning Joe from ripping Trump, saying: "The fact that he said yesterday, I've never worked for Russia, just made you think of [unintelligble] our two previous Presidents embroiled in potential impeachments: Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon saying, Bill Clinton: I never had sexual relations with that woman. And Richard Nixon: I am not a crook. Turned out they were lying. Maybe Donald Trump is, too."
