While the coverage of Hurricane Florence has increased as the storm’s landfall on the Carolina coast became imminent, that did not necessarily mean that the media rolled back their negative coverage of the Trump administration. On CNN’s New Day, John Avlon cited two Harvard scientists who argued that President Trump’s environmental policies will cause 80,000 unnecessary deaths every decade.
During a live report from Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday morning about the impact of Hurricane Florence, MSNBC’s Kate Snow noted that some people refused to evacuate to local storm shelters, including illegal immigrants afraid of deportation. Moments later, anchor Ali Velshi sympathized with the non-fact-based concern, alluding to immigration policies under the Trump administration.
Friday at ABC’s The View, the hosts spent an entire segment slamming Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson for his interview with porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti Thursday night. The hosts took objection with Carlson calling the outspoken Avenatti a “creepy porn lawyer” in the lower-third at the bottom of the screen and calling him that moniker to sign off the interview.
As is his signature “interview” style, rather than allowing his guests on Univision's Al Punto program to answer his questions, host Jorge Ramos tries to coerce them, as in the case of his most recent interview with Congresswoman Jenniffer González (R), Puerto Rico’s sole non-voting representative in Congress.
Even though Twitter apparently promotes “healthy conversation,” conservatives who work there are afraid to express their opinions. In an interview on NYU liberal journalism Professor Jay Rosen’s podcast, posted on Recode, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey explained how he felt about where Twitter stood politically as a platform.
President Trump has frequently been bashed by climate-change fanatics, and leading the crusade this week is storied actor Harrison Ford.
Media personalities and journalists decry over-the-top comments from Donald Trump, but they tolerate them from liberals like director Michael Moore. Moore appeared on The View, Friday and dramatically warned that the United States might not make it to 2020. He declared Trump the “last president” of the United States. ABC donated 16 minutes and 5 seconds to the filmmaker.
Friday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough took their liberal panel on the road to do their live show from Oxford, Mississippi, interviewing both Republican and Democrat candidates running for Senate races in the state. Frequent MSNBC panelist Eddie Glaude exemplified the liberal media’s bias against conservatives by asking the same question to both Democrats and Republicans, but changing his question to include a nasty smear attack on the panel’s one Republican guest.
New York Times reporter Gardiner Harris latest hit on a conservative foreign policy figure appears to have backfired in spectacular fashion. Harris's report isupposedly caught United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley for wild spending on her official residence, “Envoy’s View of City is Priceless. The Curtains? $52,000.” The text box: “A purchase was made at a time when the State Dept. was slashing its budget.” Or maybe not. The decision to purchase the curtains for the official residence, as well as the move to a new residence, was made in 2016, during the Obama administration.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed Democrats for attempting a last-minute smear of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, pointing to the nasty attack as the reason “why a lot of people just don’t get involved in public service.” He warned liberal lawmakers pushing the vague allegations that they were “only hurting their cause.”
Joe Scarborough has been so opposed to President Donald Trump (as opposed to when he fawned all over Trump) that he even smeared him a few days ago with the absurd claim that Trump is a graver threat to the American dream than the 9/11 terrorists. Therefore it was quite surprising that on Friday's Morning Joe show, while in Mississippi observing the attitudes of voters in that state to Trump, that Scarborough said something about Trump that was so upbeat positive that the soundbite could actually be used in one of his 2020 campaign commercials.
FoxNews.com asked MRC president and founder Brent Bozell for an opinion piece on the unfolding news about Google's left-wing culture, and how it leaks into their products, especially after Trump won the 2016 election. On Friday, it's on the Fox News home page.
Trump administration plans to finally put an end to the ‘catch and release’ of family units (adults and minors) who cross the U.S. border together without authorization is being portrayed in the worst posible light by liberal media outlets, like Los Angeles-based Estrella TV.
The New York Times again provided favorable, euphemistic coverage to the nation’s largest abortion provider (er, "health care" provider), while finding ideology only among its enemies. Reporter Kate Zernike introduced Planned Parenthood’s new leader Dr. Leana Wen, while avoiding the word "abortion" as long as she could: "Planned Parenthood, under fire from conservatives in Washington and state capitols..."
MSNBC host Joy Reid and CNN commentators Angela Rye and Symone Sanders are adding their TV star power to the Congressional Black Caucus and their annual legislative conference in the nation's capital. “Every single day in 2018, we’re experiencing the trauma of powerful people in institutions working diligently to demolish civil rights protections, diminish the advancements we’ve made as a people, and destroy our collective ability to achieve purpose,” CNN political commentator Angela Rye announced in a promotional video.
