After last-minute accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Anita Hill is back in the spotlight, and Boston Globe reporter Stephanie Ebbert got prime front-page space Wednesday for an incredibly fawning interview of Hill, who accused her boss Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment near the end of his Supreme Court confirmation hearings in 1991. Ebbert’s story is headlined like a lament, and both the headline and the story itself assume the guilt of both Thomas and Kavanaugh, who each happen to be conservative Republican nominees: “Happening again? Hill’s not surprised.”
The partisan hypocrisy of The View's co-hosts apparently knows no bounds. On Wednesday, Joy Behar deemed Brett Kavanaugh “probably guilty” of the sexual assault accusation made by Christine Blasey Ford. If that wasn’t enough, she sneered that the judge must be a “coward” if he doesn’t take a lie detector test.
Hillary Clinton, on last night’s Rachel Maddow show, insisted that the FBI investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s rape accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh – which is pretty audacious considering that’s something Juanita Broaddrick never got. Broaddrick noticed and called out the former First Lady on Twitter. Of course Maddow never brought up the obvious hypocrisy, as she never even mentioned Juanita Broaddrick’s name to Clinton.
During an exclusive softball interview with Anita Hill on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos teed her up to accuse Senate Republicans of trying to intimidate or “destroy” Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser by inviting Christine Blasey Ford to testify at a Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday.
If you had to think of an adjective that the nation’s mainstream media would most readily apply to supporters of President Trump, what would it be? “Bigoted,” “unintelligent,” and the now-infamous “deplorable” immediately come to mind. Hardly a news cycle seems to churn by where Trump, his policies, and his proponents aren’t categorically smeared.
On Wednesday's New Day show, during a discussion of the sexual assault accusations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, left-leaning CNN contributor Kirsten Powers uncharacteristically started to go off on liberal Republican contributor Margaret Hoover after the former George W. Bush administration member pointed out that there is no sign of Kavanaugh "consistently" having a past of abusing women.
Morning Joe, normally the go-to place for Trump antagonism, was surprisingly supportive today of the Republican decision to move to a Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh next Wednesday, rejecting Dem demands for an investigation of Christine Ford's allegations. Mika Brzezinski accused the Democrats of "moving the goal posts." Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle scoffed at the idea of an FBI investigation: "investigate what?" Anti-Trump Republican Susan Del Percio said if Ford is not willing to testify on Monday, "what right does she have to delay this or ask for the FBI investigation?"
Between Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell devoted two segments on her afternoon show to giving an unchallenged forum to environmental activists promoting the preferred liberal view that global warming is caused by humans and is making hurricane seasons worse, as Democratic Governor Jerry Brown appeared on Monday's show and former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday.
A year after two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton published What Happened, her whiny take on why she lost to President Trump in 2016 (Spoiler Alert: Everyone else but her), she was back with a reprinting featuring a brand new Afterword where she shared her fears of the Trump presidency after the first year. Being a liberal sycophant, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow dedicated nearly her entire Tuesday broadcast to hawking the new book and discussing the news with Clinton.
Appearing on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to discuss his latest Trump study co-authored with research analyst Bill D’Agostino, the MRC’s Rich Noyes told co-host Steve Doocy that liberal broadcast network journalists have ditched their ability to use “neutral language that reporters used to use with presidents and getting into subjective commentary” that’s “creating this prejudicial impression of the President.”
ABC News political analyst and former George W. Bush campaign official Matthew Dowd decided not to wait until Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Instead, Dowd not only hammered the current nominee, but he also reached all the way back to 1991 and stated that Clarence Thomas has at least one thing in common with Kavanaugh: They’re both “sexual predators.”
The erupting charges of “attempted rape” against Brett Kavanaugh when he was 17 show just how shameless the Democrats and the “Facts First” media have become. They are promoting charges where the accuser can’t remember when or where it happened. That is enough to stop a Supreme Court nomination?
With a week to go until the scheduled Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to interview Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal media were frantically trying to paint the proceedings as misogynistic Republican men beating up on an innocent victim. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a whole segment during their Tuesday broadcasts stoking those fears.
After months of silence, Telemundo’s principal national evening newscast finally took note of widespread economic gains among U.S. Latinos — including unemployment below 5 percent for the fifth consecutive month - during coverage of President Trump’s big kick-off celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month at the White House.
Stephen A. Smith, the well-known ESPN talk show veteran said Monday on his radio show that his listeners and his producers were lucky that he wasn't going political because ESPN is not a political network. Then he stealthily approached the subject of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being accused of sexual harassment. It appears that Smith (see file photo) is seriously questioning the Supreme Court nominee's accuser, but Awful Announcing writer Phillip Bupp assumes Smith is speaking against Kavanaugh and this story demands Smith not stick to sports.
