On Saturday's AM Joy show, MSNBC viewers were treated to the latest in a recent string of Bible-thumping on the liberal news network to promote left-wing policy as anti-evangelical Christian activist Frank Schaeffer excoriated pro-Donald Trump white Christians as "pimps of evil" who are "Jesus-hating," and need to "repent" by voting against President Trump in the future.
It would be hard to make this up. On two very different subjects, the liberal media has emerged from the last couple of weeks with not just egg on its face. In fact, it seems like they took an entire carton of Grade A Large and smashed them one by one over themselves. Can you say "cult"?
When it comes to partisan politics, Hollywood can’t help but lie through its teeth. Need proof? Here’s some examples. Jimmy Kimmel recently teased his ABC “upfront” roast, aimed at announcing new broadcast content, in an unexpected fashion. He promised he wouldn’t roast President Donald Trump like he does on a nightly basis via Jimmy Kimmel Live.
In 2011, veteran ABC journalist Barbara Walters cheered on Anthony Weiner, praising the “good Congressman” who had been accused of texting lewd images to young women. Appearing on The View, Walters hailed Weiner, saying: “[He] should hang in there.”
The Wall Street Journal's Kimberley Strassel appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show Friday to discuss Thursday's Inspector General report on "Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election." She made the big-picture point most of the rest of the press is either ignoring or denying, namely that the IG has delivered "a searing indictment of the entire FBI and its culture."
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, liberal Republican CNN contributor Margaret Hoover advocated voting for Democratic candidates against pro-Donald Trump Republicans, and proclaimed that Democrats "deserve" to "have a heyday in November."
Yet another long New York Times article on the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela spared no space for the “S-word,” -- socialism -- that is the root cause of the country’s woes. William Neuman and Clifford Krauss devoted 1,700 words on the front of Friday’s edition to one facet of the country’s woes: "Job at Oil Giant Is No Longer Path to the Venezuelan Dream.” The absence of the actual cause of Venezuela’s human tragedy – authoritarian socialism – is par for the course for the paper, as demonstrated on Newsbusters again and again.
PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff passed over the Inspector General's report with a no-bias-found verdict: "Very tough on James Comey, saying he was insubordinate, some other tough criticism of him, but, ultimately, 500 pages concluded that the way the FBI handled it didn’t demonstrate bias." Mark Shields was unintentionally funny: "If you’re a flat-Earth person or you’re a round-Earth person, there’s something. You have got some evidence, very sparse, but nevertheless there, that there was bias on the part of FBI people against Donald Trump." Very sparse?
In March, we pointed out how the struggling tween-oriented network Nickelodeon injected anti-gun politics into the low-rated Kids’ Choice Awards. Last week, they politicized their brand again in the form of a YouTube video touting it was time to “Celebrate [Gay] Pride Month.”
The content of the promo barely touched on LGBT issues. One boy announced “I’m proud of my moms” and it showed him with a brother and two women. They showed a child sitting on an adult’s shoulder holding a rainbow flag. Then it turned to talk about “being yourself.”
Feminists who embrace the "right" to abortion – the right to destroy an unborn life on a woman’s demand at any point in pregnancy – just will not accept they are powerful enough in Hollywood. Abortion scenes in TV and the movies need to be more “educational” and end the “stigma” of violence against babies, such as being torn to pieces and feeling the pain of being chemically burned to pieces. Both things have been proven true after the 20-week period, yet it remains a "stigma" against their mothers.
On Tuesday night's Rachel Maddow Show, the MSNBC host's usual elongated lecture contained a few seconds of easily identifiable falsehood. In attempting to underline just how badly Trump negotiated with the North Koreans, she claimed the communists "gave up nothing. They promised nothing." This at the very least left out three American hostages released.
David Leonhardt's Friday New York Times column about President Donald Trump's reactions to the Inspector General's report on the FBI's and Department of Justice's pre-2016 general election actions is treating it as a blanket exoneration. Therefore, everything Presidential Donald Trump has said about it is a lie.
Thursday's Inspector General's report reviewing FBI and Department of Justice actions before the 2016 election effectively concluded that former President Barack Obama lied to the American people and committed illegal acts in emailing then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private-server email addresses. The IG also found that former FBI Director James Comey scrubbed all hints of Obama's prior knowledge from his July 2016 statement explaining why Mrs. Clinton would not be indicted for her illegal acts.
Hours after the U.S. Inspector General office released a report on Thursday regarding liberal media bias in the Department of Justice and the FBI, radio host Mark Levin used an appearance on that day’s edition of Fox News Channel’s Hannity program to address the fact that “those people had as their purpose to interfere” with the 2016 presidential election. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, the conservative activist also declared that this interference was “worse than the Russians … could have ever dreamed of” and added: “In James Comey’s FBI, there was collusion" and “a culture of leaks” to liberals in the press.
While the liberal media routinely push for abortion as a part of “women’s rights,” they’re calling out companies that reportedly pressure women to choose abortion – due to a New York Times piece. On Friday, NYT published a piece on the “Epidemic of Discrimination Against Pregnant Women at Work.”
