This past week, CNN and MSNBC were caught in a rather embarrassing folly exposing them for the dolts they are. As a result of information contained within the Robert Mueller Indictment, the public learned that Russian actors organized protests in both New York City and Charlotte, NC. As Rich Noyes of Newsbusters points out both CNN and MSNBC slavishly and unwittingly covered the Russian Orchestrated March in New York November 2016 with zeal.


You've heard of push polling in which pollsters steer people to a desired opinion by asking loaded questions. The Ringer blog's Larry Wilmore has perfected the "push interview," and with Katie Couric as his guest this week, his attempts to push a fellow liberal to support for LeBron James and gun control and hanging a racist label on Laura Ingraham amounted to a cakewalk.


Now that Barack Obama is gone, it’s easy to forget how much liberal journalists loved the Democrat. In 2009, ABC’s Terry Moran insisted that Obama was “the first president since George Washington to be taking a step down into the Oval Office.” 


The Hollywood dream factory is the stuff of nightmares these days. That’s no reflection on the horror genre, on the rebound thanks to slick indies like It FollowsIt Comes at Night and the highly anticipated Hereditary. Nor does it connect to the dwindling number of souls who line up to buy movie tickets these days. That’s a different kind of scary for industry bean counters.


The indictment of 13 Russians and three companies for allegedly creating a “sophisticated network designed to subvert the 2016 election and to support the Trump campaign” is only half the story. While the Justice Department targeted foreign influence, others could have easily said something about the role U.S. media played in influencing the election’s outcome. While not criminal, the U.S. media should at least be shamed for its unrestrained bias for and against both left and right.


CBS has a strange way of marking Valentine’s Day. On the Sunday after the romantic dinners and the flowers on Wednesday, Sunday Morning linked the day to a deep study of marital infidelity. Reporter Tony Dokoupil found an expert and two cheating wives who explained without any guilt their cheating ways. CBS insisted we needed  to “rethink our attitude” on the sin of adultery.


A week ago, Facebook's VP of Ads responded to Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russians by posting a series of tweets at his personal account contending "very definitively that swaying the (2016) election was *NOT* the main goal." Instead, Rob Goldman wrote, the Russians' goal is to "divide America by using our institutions, like free speech and social media, against us." A short time later, outside and inside pressure forced Goldman to apologize for his "uncleared thoughts."


Just how inappropriately political does a Democrat have to be to incur the wrath of even reliably liberal Chris Cillizza of CNN? About as self-serving as Florida Senator Bill Nelson who used Wednesday's CNN Town Hall meeting about the tragic Parkland, Florida shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to attack his likely campaign opponent later this year.

 


The fallout from the Valentine’s Day shooting in which 17 people were killed at the Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, continued on February 22, when Van Jones, a political commentator for the CNN, claimed that young people now see the National Rifle Association as an enemy -- like the Ku Klux Klan.


In an unhinged rant at the top of his 3:00 p.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi blasted President Trump for taking questions from “two very friendly outlets” during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in the previous hour. The host went on to call Trump “cowardly” and claim that the President “cheated” by not calling on supposed “legitimate news sources.”


NRA representative Dana Loesch on Friday blasted CNN for allowing slanderous attacks to stand uncorrected against the organization on the network. Loesch battled New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota, assailing the unchallenged claims that the NRA is a “murderer” and that gun supporters like Marco Rubio are just like the Parkland shooter. 


Sometimes Chris Cuomo and Chris Matthews sound alike. Back in 2009, Matthews said it was his job to make the Obama presidency succeed. In 2018, Chris Cuomo is saying CNN's job is to "call out" people who challenge the high-school kids pushing for gun control and against the "blood money" of the National Rifle Association. It's CNN's job to prevent conservatives from taking "momentum out of these kids' efforts." 


Actor and activist Jesse Williams appeared briefly on The View, February 23, where he compared the media’s coverage of the Parkland shooter to the Black Lives Matter movement. The liberal Grey’s Anatomy star claimed that the media always spun shootings in favor of the white “oppressor class” while it demonized black kids shot by police.


The horrible school shooting at Parkland, Florida has presented Univision's news division (as well as the rest of the U.S. Spanish-language news media) with a golden opportunity to pursue two of its passions: promoting gun control up to, and including, repeal of the Second Amendment; and its war against U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of almost seven years. 


Ellen just called her the “mother of our country.” And, now, Jimmy Kimmel is saying Oprah is the “best president we’ll never have.” Don’t expect the talk to end either, as Oprah’s movie tour continues.
