Sports Illustrated announced that United States women’s national soccer team star, Megan Rapinoe, was chosen as its 2019 "Sportsperson of the Year" on Monday. However, what has taken much of the media by storm is the way she accepted the award. In true Rapinoe fashion, she used the opportunity to push her activism, while throwing Sports Illustrated itself under the proverbial bus.
The Department of Justice Inspector General’s report clearly spelled out gross abuses by the FBI when applying to spy on members of the Trump campaign. Despite those facts, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News were clutching their pearls Tuesday while reporting on how President Trump and Attorney General William Barr were slamming the law enforcement organization for lying and misleading the FISA courts.
With an array of guests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought the histrionics on Tuesday after House Democrats finally unveiled Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump, boasting that they were “push[ing] President Donald Trump closer to the brink of infamy” led by the “boss” (aka House Speaker Nancy Pelosi).
Tuesday's Fox & Friends highlighted the problem of American troops not being allowed to carry their own weapons for self-defense on some military bases as the Fox News show hosted the family of Pensacola Naval Air Station shooting victim Joshua Watson.
Well, the day the liberal media had been hoping for finally arrived on Tuesday as House Democrats released their Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. They were welcomed with anticipation by the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). And despite the fact, the Articles didn’t include many of the charges Democrats said there would be, the media did their job and treated them like serious documents.
Move along, nothing to see here but right-wing conspiracy-mongering. That was the New York Times’ message covering the Inspector General report on how the F.B.I. came to investigate ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. Though the report was highly critical of the F.B.I., reporter Mark Mazzetti’s lead “news analysis” on Tuesday appeared under the banner headline “Report Debunks Anti-Trump Plot In Russia Inquiry.” The paper did at long last debunk the Russian dossier, albeit on page 18.
For the liberal national media, an unofficial part of any job title must include attacking Fox News in an either occasional or permanent capacity for all that ills America. The task fell to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Chris Matthews on Tuesday afternoon as the pair blamed FNC for the lack of overwhelming public support for impeaching and removing President Trump from office.
Late night shows these days are usually conservative-hating cringe fests, but Monday night’s Late Late Show year-in-review segment featuring Grammy award-winning songwriter Alicia Keys takes the cake for being one of the lamest anti-Trump gaffes in recent memory.
A Pinterest tech insider received an award for his part in blowing the whistle on Pinterest’s bias and censorship of conservative content. Whistleblower Eric Cochran received an Impact Award during the 3rd Annual Impact Awards hosted by Liberty Consulting President Ginni Thomas and by United Purpose last Wednesday.

Wonderful. The folks behind the leading English dictionary are now complicit in the left’s vendetta against biology, naming “they” as 2019’s “Word of the Year” and explaining that this achievement is very much based on the word’s newfound gender-neutral usage.
During an exclusive interview with NBC justice correspondent Pete Williams aired on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr reacted to the Justice Department’s inspector general report detailing the FBI’s mishandling of the Russia investigation and also blamed the media for constantly hyping the faulty inquiry.
Morning Joe absolutely unloads on Elizabeth Warren this morning. The proximate cause was the release of her memo on behalf of a corporate client seeking to avoid responsibility for cleaning up a toxic-waste site. But the broader issue addressed was her lack of authenticity/honesty across the board. John Heilemann says her campaign realizes there's a "whiff of fraudulence" about her, and Steve Schmidt twice warns Democrats against nominating her.
The hosts of The View talked briefly Tuesday about Clint Eastwood’s latest biographical film on fake news victim Richard Jewell, who was falsely branded by the media as a terrorist in 1996. Instead of discussing the media’s culpability in ruining this man’s life, however, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Eastwood instead for his film’s depiction of a now-deceased Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter.
You know it’s bad when network journalists are poking holes in the Democratic conclusions. On Tuesday, the reporters on CBS continued to be unimpressed with what congressional Democrats came up with as they prepare to impeach the President. Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett saw the announcement of the charges as a letdown with Democrats “walking back away from some of the things they were alleging quite loudly two weeks ago.”
In a column for The Hill published Monday afternoon, George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley took direct aim at the liberal media for mischaracterizing the findings of the Justice Department Inspector General report about the origins of the Russia investigation and spinning the findings to attack President Trump.
