Univision anchor Jorge Ramos's interview with Vice President Joe Biden, broadcast on Facebook Watch ahead of the Nevada caucuses, was neither lengthy nor wide-ranging. However, the interview demonstrated that border enforcement of any kind is a non-starter with Univision’s senior anchor.
Did you know that Bernie Sanders visited Russia when it was part of the Soviet Union in 1988? If you didn't know that, there is a much greater chance you know it now thanks to a couple of Russian comedians and the Associated Press which published a story about Bernie Sanders being yet another victim of a prank phone call, "Bernie Sanders pranked by Russians posing as Greta Thunberg."
This is exactly how the Leftist State Media (the LSM) plays the game of omission journalism. Here is a CNN.com story that is headlined as follows: “Stone juror says she 'stands with' the prosecutors.” The story reads, in part, this way: "A juror on the Roger Stone trial said she wants to 'stand up' for the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case in response to their sentencing recommendation being changed by Department of Justice leadership."
In the last week, journalists have erupted, feuded and generally freaked out over the acquittal of Donald Trump and the implosion of the Democratic Party. So it might be a good time to The September 5, 2017 episode of American Horror Story: Cult. The FX series made by the deeply liberal Ryan Murphy retold election night 2016 as an apocalyptic meltdown for the show’s characters.
On HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, former NBC morning host and CBS evening anchor Katie Couric expressed amazement at Michael Bloomberg's insults against Donald Trump as a "carnival barking clown" and more. Maher began: "Let me ask everybody about this race and Michael Bloomberg. First of all, he was insulting Trump the other day." Couric's eyes widen and she grinned that toothy grin and said "Oh my God, it was so amazing, wasn't it?"
Unquestionably one of the hottest controversies raging in American sports and the culture war in general is the battle over transgender males unfairly invading female sports. Predictably, left-stream media are blind to the ethical fallacy of boys mopping up in girls' competition, and the issue is heating up in the nation's courts, too. SBNation Outsports blog describes a "shameful war" taking place against transgenders whose self-esteem and well-being are being attacked for cheap political gain.
Longtime ABC White House correspondent Sam Donaldson fervently endorsed Michael Bloomberg for the White House on Friday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN. The funny part was the journalists pretending Donaldson has never really favored a politician before. Cooper solemnly began: "Sam Donaldson has spent years has a prominent White House correspondent, anchor for ABC News, never strayed from the ethic that journalists should not take sides"!
For much of Thursday, a number of CNN hosts fretted over conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh musing about the possibility that some Democrats are afraid that gay presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg would be a weak general election candidate against a more masculine President Donald Trump. Host Jake Tapper accused Limbaugh of having a long record of "bigotry" against minorities and women, and hosts Brooke Baldwin, Brianna Keilar, Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow, among others, also devoted segments to fretting over the issue.
In yet another sign that the print news industry is headed toward extinction, the McClatchy Company -- the second-largest local newspaper business in the nation -- has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. As part of its announcement on Thursday, the 163-year-old company and owner of such newspapers as the Miami Herald, the Kansas City Star, the Sacramento Bee and 24 other publications in 14 states, stated that its bankruptcy plan would erase 60 percent of its debt while moving the company toward “a digital future.”
John Harwood joined CNN Newsroom Friday morning to engage in some cynical goalpost-shifting after Attorney General Bill Barr's Thursday interview with ABC where Barr urged President Trump to quit tweeting about controversial matters before the department.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Never Trumper Rick Wilson predicts that if Sanders is the nominee, he would lose 44 states to President Trump. Wallace, putting on her former strategist's hat, expressed grave doubts about Sanders's electability, given his weak support among African-American voters and his democratic socialist label. But, determined to reaffirm her Trump-hating credentials, she prefaced her critique by declaring: "I'm on the record. I will vote for whomever -- I will, I will gladly and easily and handily vote for Bernie Sanders if he's the nominee."
The New York State Legislature banned bail for defendants charged with most misdemeanor and nonviolent offenses without giving judges any discretion, which has accompanied a spike in crime. Yet the New York Times has been shilling for the left-wing, soft-on-crime policy, despite the undeniable street violence that has already resulted. Now they’re accusing opponents of racism, the giveaway of a desperate losing argument. The latest comes courtesy of Albany bureau chief Jesse McKinley. “Bail Reform Backlash Has Democrats at War.” The text box: “Some urge judicial discretion, while others accuse critics of fear-mongering.” Guess which argument McKinley favors?
In response to reports that a part of Antarctica recently reached a record high temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit, some media outlets descended into climate alarmism as they sloppily reported the findings. But, as pointed out at ClimateDepot, climate skeptic Jim Steele this week wrote up a piece debunking claims that the occurrence is a sign of global warming, and even cited studies suggesting Antarctica has actually been cooling for decades.
The left went bonkers on Twitter when news broke that Big Tech billionaire Larry Ellison was hosting a pro-Trump fundraiser. Lefty outlet Vox Recode characterized the billionaire founder of Oracle Corporation's decision to support President Donald Trump as "unthinkable for a tech titan" and “a major coup for the Trump team." Recode continued: "Ellison is, after all, the country’s fifth-richest person, with a net worth of almost $70 billion.”
The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain erupted at each other on Friday’s show over the 2020 election and the Democrat candidate choices. As McCain trashed Michael Bloomberg as unappealing to black voters and coal miners, Behar griped that Democrats were facing too much scrutiny, when Republicans “have the most racist track record.”
