CNN is upset because President Donald Trump's border control policies are working so well thanks in large part to the cooperation of the Mexican government. And it is that cooperation with Mexico that also irks Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from whom it is obvious CNN got many of their talking points.
Any rational person who listened to Hillary Clinton’s recent suggestion that Congresswoman and combat veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was a Russian plant in the 2020 election understood it to be the ramblings of a person unglued. But on Friday, CBS Evening News touted Clinton’s baseless smears by calling them “extraordinary” and “stunning”. But come Sunday, CBS had avoided the topic while ABC and NBC were pumping the brakes and, surprisingly, calling Clinton out.
In an exclusive Sunday morning interview with ABC chief anchor and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos on This Week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo subjected himself to a grilling from a network intent on pinning genocide on the Trump administration. Immediately after introducing Pompeo to his viewers, Stephanopoulos jumped right to trying to link President Trump’s decision to pull out of Syria with an assumed genocide of the Syrian Kurds by invading Turkish forces.
With President Trump’s overnight announcement to cancel the government’s consideration of his Doral property in Florida for the location for the G7 summit in 2020, the liberal media were reveling in what was another loss for the President. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator/NBC political director Chuck Todd were hyped up by what the latter described as the wobbliest he’s seen Republican support for Trump.
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter completely dismissed the Project Veritas tapes exposing CNN in a podcast with Charles Sykes of the Trump-hating site The Bulwark. Stelter touted CNN spokesman Matt Dornic simply tweeting "Yawn" in reaction. "I don't think O'Keefe has published anything surprising or newsworthy," he claimed. "There's no there there to the claims O'Keefe is promoting."
Van Jones slams HIllary Clinton for suggesting that Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian Asset. "She's playing a very dangerous game. Hillary Clinton, if you're concerned about this information and to spread disinformation, that is what just happened."
A climber who just happened to walk by a Kentucky replica of the southern border wall told the Deadspin sports blog it was fairly easy to climb the "very ugly symbol." With some egging on by Deadspin interviewer Giri Nathan, Peter Favaloro said people walking through desert heat could surely scale the wall, too.
Bill Maher closed Friday’s edition of Real Time by pleading with President Trump to take $1 million in cash and resign from office. After portraying the President as a “liar” and a swindler, Maher outlined an elaborate proposal to team up with celebrities and ordinary Trump-hating Americans to help him “go away,” in other words: resign.
The headline over at NBC News was succinct: "MSNBC, Washington Post to co-host November Democratic presidential debate. Eight candidates appear to have qualified so far for the matchup in Georgia next month. The NBC story reported this: "MSNBC and The Washington Post will co-host the fifth Democratic presidential primary debate in Georgia next month, MSNBC announced Tuesday."
The New York Times is again trying to police the boundaries of allowable debate, with a supposed controversy over a scheduled meeting at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort by a group reviled by the left for its documentation of the threat of radical Islam: “Mar-a-Lago Again Under Fire for Hosting Group That Promoted Islamophobia.” Reporter Mihir Zaveri used two discredited pressure groups to make his case against the Center for Security Policy: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic pressure group which the U.S. Senate has tied to terrorism, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the fundraising mill targeting gullible liberals.
Jane Fonda keeps pulling off the impossible in Hollywood. The Oscar winner stepped away from cameras in 1990 only to stage an improbable comeback with the 2005 hit Monster in Law. She was in her mid-60s at the time in an industry where turning 40 can stop a career cold.Now, at 81, Fonda stars in her own celebrated Netflix comedy, Grace and Frankie. The series treats aging with humor and respect, giving Fonda yet another showcase for her gifts.
It was one year ago this week that Elizabeth Warren released a disastrous video attempting to bolster her claims of being a Native American. It was poorly received and even liberal ABC, CBS and NBC dismissed the efforts. To recap, Warren in the fall of 2018 produced results of a DNA test she insisted proves her Native American heritage. On October 16, 2018, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning quoted from a Cherokee Nation statement eviscerating Warren:
One of the most interesting parts of the CNN Democrat debate this week had nothing to do with the debates. It came during a commercial break. The Washington Post bought commercial time -- which isn’t shocking, since the Democrats are the paper’s natural subscriber base. It’s how they promoted themselves that was truly jaw-dropping.
At the Daily Signal, John Cooper of the Heritage Foundation warned he had an unhappy experience with the "fact checking" unit at CNN. They reached out to Heritage for analysis of President Trump's recent comments about the American military's munitions stockpile when he took office. "CNN completely omitted the wealth of data provided by a Heritage Foundation defense analyst."
The New York Times, keeping support for free expression at arms length when it appears President Trump may employ it for his reelection campaign. The paper was alarmed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, who announced that Facebook would not serve a privatized Ministry of Truth for political ads in 2020, no matter how much the Times (representing the aggrieved Democratic Party) may whine. Cecilia Kang and Mike Isaac listened to Zuckerberg’s speech Thursday at Georgetown University and filed “Defiant Zuckerberg Says Facebook Won’t Police Political Speech -- In an address at Georgetown University, the Facebook chief executive called for more free speech -- not less -- as his company has been assailed for allowing lies and falsehoods to appear.”
