From its inception, the Russian collusion lie hammered by the media came across as blatantly insulting, fake news to the vast majority of the country. Rather than owning up to their mistakes or showing any glimmer of remorse once the Mueller Report confirmed there was no sufficient evidence to support the claim of collusion, the press doubled down on their narrative. On Thursday, Late Night host Seth Meyers was among those continuing to suffer from collusion delusion.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg reannounced a $500-million effort to eradicate coal and natural gas use in the U.S. on June 6. ABC, CBS and NBC news didn’t even flinch. That night the three broadcast evening shows made no time for the billionaire media mogul’s massive spending to shut down the rest of the nation’s coal plants by 2030 and start targeting natural gas plants. They also haven’t reported it since, much less scrutinized it even though he’s a high-profile liberal donor, media owner and maybe former politician.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski suffered a full-on meltdown as her Trump Derangement Syndrome was out in full force. She ranted about the President being “evil” and bringing on a “dictatorship.” The outrage came in the wake of Trump’s Oval Office interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in which the President said he would accept opposition research on his political opponents from foreign governments. For Mika Brzezinski, something that the Clinton campaign actually did in 2016 apparently makes Trump akin to an evil dictator.
The press rose as one in outrage Wednesday upon learning that Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma, which is being used as a temporary shelter for migrant children, had been used as a Japanese internment camp during World War II. One fact buried and downplayed: Fort Sill was also used to hold migrant children as recently in 2014, under the administration of one Barack Obama. But at the time, it seems that zero media outlets who covered the controversy made the connection between World War II internment and the Obama administration’s housing of migrant children.
The massive tech monolith Google doesn’t want to be investigated or regulated. Google CEO Sundar Pichai carefully worded his criticisms of the antitrust investigations and the calls for regulation of big tech, in an June 13 interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow.
At the news that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be leaving her post at the end of the month, CNN shamelessly spent their primetime hours that night giving her most bitter foe in the press free reign to bash her character. Both Erin Burnett and Don Lemon brought on April Ryan, who isn’t event CNN’s own White House correspondent, to slam Sanders one last time as “suffering from lie-abetes” and declaring her was the “worst press secretary” in the past three decades.
If Donald Trump announced today that he’s going to find a cure for cancer tomorrow, liberals would whine and complain that a lot of people with medical careers would unfairly be put out of work. But when Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made such an outlandish claim, the women on ABC’s The View program applauded the promise even though co-host Joy Behar warned that accomplishing such a task will be “much more difficult” if the liberals’ top priority of climate change has not been dealt with first.
Former Facebook CSO Alex Stamos joined MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday to discuss Facebook's response, or lack of a response, to doctored or misleading videos. Ruhle was particularly upset that misleading videos, such as the Nancy Pelosi one from a few weeks ago, was not removed and even wondered what the government could do about.
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta appeared on the Hugh Hewitt radio show on Thursday, and under questioning from the right, strangely claimed he's all about bringing Americans together and that he wrote his book Enemy of the People....for Republicans?
As NBC Nightly News continued its monotonous drumbeat on Thursday to elevate liberal policy positions ahead of the Democratic debate they were holding, the network gave the megaphone to South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in order to push for abolishing the Electoral College.
During Wednesday's Morning Joe, the panel interviewed New York Times contributing opinion writer Pete Wehner, who wrote a book entitled The Death of Politics: How to Heal Our Fractured Republic After Trump and the conversation focused on evangelicals’ support for President Trump. Not surprisingly, it did not long for those on-set to start accusing the evangelicals who support President Trump of subscribing to a “robotic mindset” and condemning their support for a President who traffics in “cruelty and dehumanization.”
For the Thursday afternoon’s airing of CNN Newsroom, substitute anchor Pamela Brown hosted a discussion on President Trump’s recent Oval Office interview, in which he stated that he may or may not call the FBI if a foreign entity offered information on a political opponent. In that time, CNN senior Justice correspondent Evan Perez suggested the now-infamous Steele dossier wasn’t foreign interference because it made its way to the FBI. At no point did Perez now it was paid for and intended to be used by the Clinton campaign.
In George Orwell’s 1984, ever-present telescreens continuously broadcast propaganda for the totalitarian government IngSoc. One would have to look no further than a video released Wednesday on the website of Harper's Bazaar to get an idea of what this kind of propaganda looks like. The video’s purpose was to advocate for Planned Parenthood and abortion “rights,” calling people to stand up against the new pro-life bills passed across the country.
MSNBC’s The Last Word, was back on Wednesday night to their usual anti-Trump rhetoric, amidst Trump’s recent ABC interview which had sent the entire liberal media in a frenzy. To begin, O’Donnell showed a clip from the interview in which President Trump stated: “I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI, in my whole life. You don’t call the FBI.”
Google and YouTube aren’t less interested in free speech than in maintaining politically correct status. Google CEO Sundar Pichai told his gay Google employees, aka “Gayglers,” that the company will consult “many groups, including people who have themselves experienced harassment” in order to descide future company policy. He proclaimed that “our Gaygler and Trans communities have always been a core part of Google culture,” according to The Verge, which received a copy of the June 12 e-mail.
