CBS This Morning on Tuesday mostly ignored the findings of its own poll on the coronavirus and the government’s handling of it. The network allowed a scant 10 seconds to the news that a majority, 53 percent, approve of the President’s response. Relegated to online is the news that more Americans trust Donald Trump to given information than the media itself.
One of the leading tech writers not only chided Facebook for not censoring more but went right after the platform’s co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Co-founder of the liberal technology news website Recode and opinion columnist for The New York Times Kara Swisher blasted “white men” who run Silicon Valley, like Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. She later referred to him as “malevolent” and suggested that he should do more to censor on his social media platform.
On Tuesday, both NBC’s Today show and MSNBC actually attempted to blame President Trump for a couple in Arizona ingesting fish medication as a way to protect themselves against the coronavirus. Tragically, the husband died and his wife is in critical condition. While still in the hospital, she was contacted by an NBC reporter, whose top priority was finding a way to hold Trump responsible.
Even liberal media outlets are condemning an anti-Trump ad for containing misinformation about President Donald Trump, but Twitter will not call it that..The bias against Trump has become so egregious that even The Hill and The Washington Post are calling it out. “According to emails reviewed by The Hill, the Trump campaign flagged new content on Twitter that it said had been deceptively edited,” The Hill’s Jonathan Easly wrote on March 16. One video in question was shared by Mike Bloomberg’s former senior adviser Tim O’Brien and featured audio clips of Trump’s words spliced together and taken out of context, set to a rising graph showing “Confirmed Coronavirus Cases in US.” The most damning part from the video was Trump saying, “Coronavirus” edited together with “this is their new hoax,” as if Trump were denying the existence of the disease. Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted a video with similar language.
Steven Erlanger is the chief diplomatic correspondent in Europe for The New York Times. He sits in Brussels and channels the view of Eurocrats. So naturally, Donald Trump is stepping away from global leadership because ....he refuses to agree with everything the socialists in Brussels prefer. Erlanger used the coronavirus pandemic to launch another attack on President Trump’s "selfish" leadership in Sunday’s paper: “In This Crisis, U.S. Sheds Its Role as Global Leader.”
Ever since people on the political left discovered the phenomenon they quickly dubbed “global warming” -- which has since been upgraded to the term “climate change” -- they have been looking for others they can blame for the current status of the planet. Now that the COVID-19 virus has spread across the globe, everyone from politicians to celebrities have slammed conservatives as being responsible for the situation, including actor Isria Elba, who claimed that the disease is actually the “world reacting to the human race.”
Those in the media suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome really can’t decide what they want from this administration: One day, it’s more transparency; the next, it’s censorship. The View co-host Sunny Hostin taking a note from The Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan, argued on Monday’s show that the networks should refuse to air President Trump’s daily press conference updates on the coronavirus because they’re full of “misinformation.”
TV journalists have yet to go a day without crying “racist” in the nearly two weeks since President Trump accurately stated that the current coronavirus outbreak originated in China. But although the President’s continued assertions that the virus is “Chinese” or “foreign” have so thoroughly upset the media, most of them are unable to explain what exactly has them so upset about it.
Like most of the country, you probably forgot that CW’s Roswell, New Mexico was renewed for a second season. After the first season’s obnoxious political leanings, unfortunately, season two seems to be ramping up the politics if this episode is any indication. From an alien abortion to praising nationalized healthcare to slamming the border wall, it’s an out-of-this-world cocktail of leftist issues.
In these stressful times, we can take comfort in the fact that some things never change. One of those things sadly includes the fact that liberals will always spend their time force-feeding us leftist propaganda. HBO’s limited series The Plot Against America does just that by recreating their infamous 2016 defeat through a despicable anti-Semite “taking back” America in 1940.
It’s as if the left knew what they were doing Sunday and Monday -- switching tunes to now opposing the Senate’s massive, $2 trillion stimulus package to help American workers and the economy. Why? Because as Monday’s broadcast network newscasts showed, the liberal media will provide any and all cover, refusing to assign blame to liberals and progressives pulling the carpet out at the last minute. ABC, CBS, and NBC framed the stimulus package’s failure as merely a “bitter fight” and “political battle” having caused “angry debate” and “frustration.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter just stepped in it, putting out a very vengeful and salacious tweet about how the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) at his own home “was right.” Not that her famous last name was respected in conservative circles, but Christine sure invited universal condemnation of the Pelosi family name with her disgusting partisan smear of the GOP lawmaker.
Get ready to hear a lot of this from the hard left in the media: According to MSNBC host Chris Hayes, conservatives, Republicans and Donald Trump are ready to kill a “million” senior citizens as a way of saving the economy from the coronavirus. Hayes opened his All In show by comparing it to similar “right wing ideas,” such as being okay with air pollution, even if it kills people with lung disease.
On her MSNBC show, Nicolle Wallace says it's "more difficult" to hope that Sen. Rand Paul, who has tested positive for coronavirus, is okay, given that he didn't promptly self-quarantine. No worries, Nicolle! Nothing "harsh" at all about finding it difficult to hope that someone with a potentially fatal disease is okay! Particularly when, as you twice mentioned, he's a "Republican."
New on March 23: MSNBC host Rachel Maddow condemned misleading information conveyed by President Trump at his daily briefings on the coronavirus, announcing that thus, “if it were up to me...I would stop putting those briefings on live TV.” She argued that “if he keeps lying like he has been every day on stuff this important, we should -- all of us – should stop broadcasting it. Honestly, it’s going to cost lives.”
