Our domestic Spanish-language news networks march forward with their anti-Second Amendment biases on the back of the horrendous school shooting at Parkland, Florida. However, Telemundo managed to find a whole seven seconds for a pro-Second Amendment voice...in the spirit of balance.


Jack Heretik at the Washington Free Beacon reports that CNN is so desperate to push for gun control in every forum that on Thursday, Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr pestered Defense Department spokemsan Dana White about how it must be fairly close to impossible for the military brass to "stay out of the gun debate" in America. White said no, it wasn't impossible, that those issues "are for political leaders."


Since yesterday, MSNBC has put on display the latest example of how national news outlets are blatantly promoting the liberal agenda on gun control, as an ad has been running featuring MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace and contributor Steve Schmidt talking up the liberal student activists who have been calling for "common sense gun reforms" since the Parkland school shootings.

 


Once upon a time I was nineteen. (No comments, please.) I have related part of this story in a speech a few months back at my alma mater, Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the wake of what has become a controversial CNN Townhall meeting on the Florida shooting, there is a media aspect of my tale that I neglected to relate --- and the reaction to the Florida CNN Townhall reminds.


Friday's New York Times promoted what they called "A buddy movie about Communism," reviewed by film critic A.O. Scott. It was somehow an occasion for whimsey. Marx and Engels became "the Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the European left, rock stars for an age of revolution." They "look and act like pioneers of brocialism." Scott even said the jury was still out on the history of Marxism, "bloody and contentious and not yet finished."


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."


On Thursday's All In show, MSNBC host Chris Hayes tried to correct Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's assertion that most Americans would oppose a general ban on semi-automatic rifles, but the self-described liberal caricature instead demonstrated that he is uninformed about guns as he assumed that the term "assault rifle," that is used by gun control advocates, refers to all semi-automatic rifles as if the two terms were interchangeable.

 

 


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.
