White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday got into a contentious battle with Wolf Blitzer when the anchor awkwardly insisted that “there are issues” with her marriage to Trump critic George Conway. Blitzer stumbled, “I just have a final question, a sensitive question, and it’s a political question, it’s a substantive question.” He added, “I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know that there are issues there.” An incredulous Conway responded, “Did you just say there are issues there?... Why would you say that?”
Media Research Center founder and President Brent Bozell on Thursday hammered the media’s “fake news, left-wing” agenda when it comes to covering impeachment. Appearing on Varney and Co., Bozell discussed a new MRC study finding that 96 percent of impeachment stories have been negative.
During the 12:00 p.m. ET hour break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, the journalists anchoring NBC’s special coverage complained that House Democrats hadn’t made a strong enough case for President Trump’s removal from office and even suggested the media were being too soft on Trump. Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd particularly wailed about the President’s supporters “not accepting the premise” of impeachment.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace has been trying her hardest to prove her allegiance to Democrats by trashing the party she used to work for, at every opportunity she gets. Case in point, after cursing at FNC host Laura Ingraham on her program last week, she went on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, Wednesday, to double down on her offensive comments while giggling and yukking it up with the anti-Trump host about how much they both hate Republicans.
Both CNN and MSNBC rushed to put disgraced CBS News anchorman Dan Rather on the air Wednesday night, which underlines they think all that matters about journalism is your "heart was in the right place." Rather's liberal heart was on display as he sought to underline that "history" was going to be tough on Trump and his Republican defenders. Rather actually told Don Lemon -- no laugh track provided -- that there are people out there who take the attitude "don't bother me with facts, I have my mind made up."
ESPN has always been friendly turf for Colin Kaepernick and that was especially true on Wednesday, the day after news came out about the radical former pro quarterback/anthem kneeler getting an NFL tryout this Saturday. The First Take and Around The Horn programs passed around plenty of Kaepernick Kool-Aid.
The crazy train was more like a Japanese bullet train on Wednesday’s Hardball following the first round of House impeachment hearings. Why? Well, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his panel of Resistance cheerleaders gushed that the hearing gave them “patriotic goosebumps” led by the “calm” “great,” and “outstanding” Democratic counsel Daniel Goldman (who was a former MSNBC contributor).
Left-wing “establishment” newspapers like the New York Times have been promoting polyamory within their fading pages. “The class of people — educated progressives — who run the Times won the gay marriage fight. They won the transgender fight. This is what they’re going for next. You watch,” warned Rod Dreher in The American Conservative. You only need to watch the latest episodes of network television to see how this cultural push is insinuating itself into our society.
On Wednesday, South Park illustrated the absurdity of allowing men who identify as women into female athletic competitions, in a way only South Park can, in the episode titled "Strong Woman."
Appearing Wednesday on the Fox Business Network, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Trish Regan on her eponymous prime time show that the liberal media have shown “such hypocrisy” on the Trump whistleblower. And in reacting to our latest study, Bozell ruled that they have put our “democracy...in peril” with their rampant, anti-Trump bias.
Someone told me about a phone call they overheard between someone else and President Trump on the other end: that was the crux of the “new evidence” out of Wednesday’s televised impeachment hearing that had the liberal media foretelling doom for the President. Despite the fact it met the literal definition of hearsay, ABC News, CBS News, and NBC News pounced on the testimony of diplomat Bill Taylor.
It would appear the media war on Christmas is far from over. As Stephen Colbert exemplified on Tuesday’s The Late Show, no event in American life, not even a holiday, is immune from political infusion. Colbert had no qualms in letting the audience know of his excitement for Wednesday’s Impeachment hearings, considering his fan base shares in the anticipation alongside of him.
Former Bush official-turned-liberal-turned-ABC News chief political analyst-turned-special correspondent Matthew Dowd found himself in hot water on Wednesday after the first set of impeachment hearings, tweeting a sexist attack against Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY). Why? Well, it turned out he didn’t like her questioning.
After ABC on Wednesday boasted Democrats were “serious” and U.S. Ambassador Bill Taylor was like Walter Cronkite, the post-hearing coverage led a few panelists to painstakingly concede that the hearing would not change anyone’s minds about impeachment. On the other hand, there was a hilarious back-and-forth with former Clinton official/chief anchor George Stephanopoulos and senior national correspondent Terry Moran to bemoan how more haven’t crossed over to call for Trump’s removal because they’re too blinded by Trump’s “version of American populism.”
After a day of live impeachment coverage, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell on Wednesday breathlessly hyped the information as, respectively, “devastating,” “devastating” and potentially a coming “bombshell.” Seconds after the hearing ended, O’Donnell described, “There we have it. Day one of the first public hearing in terms of impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump are now in the history books. Some devastating testimony today from two of America's most respected diplomats who have served north Republican and democratic presidents.”
