On his radio show, Mark Levin routinely mocks the Mediaite website and its owner, ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams. On Wednesday, Mediaite returned fire with a nasty article headlined “Mark Levin Goes on Nuts Tear Against Bernie Sanders, Calls Him an Anti-Semite With an ‘Islamo-Nazi Mentality’.”
Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show predicts pure doom and despair for Democrats. A.B. Stoddard predicted that at tonight's Democrat debate in Nevada, the candidates are sure to focus their fire on Mike Bloomberg, letting Bernie Sanders off the hook. That in turn would lead to his nomination. Stoddard foresaw Sanders getting "slaughtered" in the general election, with President Trump winning a "huge mandate." Steve Schmidt then said that a Sanders candidacy, given his plan to take private health insurance policies away from 150 million Americans, would be a "death sentence" for the Democrats. And John Heilemann envisioned Bernie and Bloomberg "slugging it out" for months to come, leaving the Democrat party unable to put itself back together.
In today’s installment of media memory loss, the press seemed to blank on former President Obama’s clemency record and the praise they heaped upon him during his presidency. Early Wednesday morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and political analyst Jason Johnson defamed President Trump as a ‘dictator’ for exercising his constitutional right of granting pardons and commutations.
Andrea Mitchell took her MSNBC show on the road to Las Vegas on Wednesday to preview the night's Democratic debate. In anticipation for the debate, Mitchell and former Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri asserted that the downfall of Elizabeth Warren and the lack of early support for Amy Klobuchar is because of their gender.
Remember the CNN motto "Facts First"? On Tuesday's The Lead with Jake Tapper, during a panel discussion of Bernie Sanders vs. Michael Bloomberg, no one corrected far-left guest Mehdi Hasan of al-Jazeera America when he bolstered Sanders by wrongly claiming Bloomberg was a Republican "for many, many years until 2018."
CNN En Español recently gave a master class in selective outrage, as displayed by their coverage of presidential pardons. One recent pardon was covered factually and neutrally. The other required an explainer and was bookended with an editorial crack at the issuing president. It’s not hard to guess which president drew bias and which did not.
Facebook’s plans for regulating Big Tech have not met the expectations of some bigwigs in EU leadership. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg toured Brussels earlier this week, meeting with press and politicians and also publishing a white paper called “Charting the Way Forward: Online Content Regulation.” EU officials, however, were dissatisfied with Zuckerberg’s regulatory plan. French commissioner Thierry Breton rejected the proposal as “not enough,” and even threatened that if Zuckerberg fails to meet the European Commission’s standards “we will have to regulate,” reported the Financial Times.
Reporting live from Victoria Falls in central Africa for Wednesday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s chief meteorologist Ginger Zee used the spectacular location to lecture American viewers about climate change. It was all part of the network’s new Extraordinary Earth series leading up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on The View Wednesday where she was at first lavished with praise from the hosts but then grilled about her support for Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg first introduced Ocasio-Cortez as one of the “most talked about and controversial congresswomen,” before Sunny Hostin asked about her endorsing Sanders.
Proving once again that news media and Hollywood are the same propaganda arm of the Democrat party, Vox announced that singer/songwriter John Legend has taken an official position within the leftwing media outlet. The Hollywood Reporter wrote on Feb. 19 that Legend “is joining the board of directors at Vox Media.”
In his introductory statement made to the Department of Justice Section 230 Workshop, Attorney General William Barr discussed the problems brought on by the rise of Big Tech. “No longer are tech companies the underdog upstarts,” said Barr to the Feb. 19 panels. “They have become titans of U.S. industry.”
Facebook is finding some forms of government regulation to be too much for the company, even as CEO Mark Zuckerberg calls for more of it. Facebook has been "legally compelled," according to Bloomberg News, by the government of Singapore to block access to a fringe news website States Times Review (STR) after it posted rumors about the government’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak. Facebook told Bloomberg News that it would comply on Feb. 19, but declared it is "deeply concerned about the precedent this sets for the stifling of freedom of expression.
While appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle Wednesday morning, major Democratic Party donor and Nevada businessman Stephen Cloobeck rejected the notion that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders could win the Democratic nomination, even labeling the far-left lawmaker an “anarchist” who “would love to burn down the United States.”
The New York Times headline echoed its hostile lead story Wednesday: “Trump Exerts His Power With a Spree of Pardons – Critics Denounce Clemency for Blagojevich, Milken and Kerik as Undeserved” by Michael Shear and Maggie Haberman. Catch the echo of “crime spree” in the headline? "But the president’s announcements on Tuesday were mostly aimed at wiping clean the slates of rich, powerful and well-connected white men." But the Times took a different tone when it was Barack Obama making controversial pardons and commutations:
Poor Paul Krugman. He’s been reduced to using zombie metaphors to illustrate his disdain for certain “centrist” Democratic presidential candidates.
