The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening.
Jimmy Traina attended this week's "ESPN Upfronts" event in Manhattan. The liberally slanted Sports Illustrated author of the "Extra Mustard" column described it as an opportunity for ESPN "to get companies to spend money on their shows." In his recap of the Upfront, he ridiculed the notion that ESPN has a liberal bias.
On Tuesday, the Associated Press produced a dispatch exemplifying why the public so deeply distrusts and despises the establishment press. Tasked with covering President Donald Trump's lunch with Republican senators, reporters Lisa Mascaro and Anne Flaherty decided that relaying what happened and what was discussed was relatively unimportant. Instead, in a transparent attempt to fuel controversies not germane to the event and to perpetuate the meme of a Trump presidency mired in controversy, they made their story primarily about what didn't happen and what wasn't discussed.
One of CNN’s most blatant hypocrisies is their double standard when it comes slamming Fox News hosts for their relationships with President Trump. This criticism could be valid if those same CNN employees didn’t spend their free time palling around with those out to carve out their pound of flesh. The latest example of this was exposed via a late night tweet from a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) showing CNN host Don Lemon, among other journalists, having a grand old time with “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta has suggested President Trump is a “racist,” while whining that Trump’s complaints about press bias were doing “real damage to the First Amendment,” speculating that some day we might see “a dead journalist on the side of the highway, because of the rhetoric coming out of the White House.” Then on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Acosta said this about his Trump coverage: “Listen, when I covered Barack Obama, I was just as tough on him. People might not believe that.” Let’s investigate.
After the media got caught distorting President Trump’s comments labeling murderous MS-13 gang members “animals” as an attack on all immigrants, on Thursday afternoon, MSNBC only briefly corrected the record before immediately blaming the President for press “confusion” on the topic given his history of saying “incendiary and racist things” in the past.
Feminist Gloria Steinem is thrilled about a new play about herself – and, presumably, her progressive stances on issues like abortion. On Wednesday, Deadline broke the news that a play about feminist Gloria Steinem will officially open October 18.
Planned Parenthood might not want you pregnant and barefoot, but it does want you in the kitchen. On Wednesday, food and culture magazine Bon Appétit interviewed former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. Associate editor Hilary Cadigan interviewed Richards as she talked about everything from pie-baking contests to women’s “futures” and “destinies.”
Women’s basketball is teaming up with Planned Parenthood in the name of “women” – even though millions of women are missing today because of the abortion giant. On Wednesday, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) announced a “new women and girls empowerment program” for the 2018 season called, “Take a Seat, Take a Stand.”
Following the rest of the press, New York Times reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis falsely portrayed the president as attacking all “undocumented immigrants” (in the paper’s politically correct terminology) as “animals” when he was clearly only talking about criminal gangs, including the murderous MS-13. The story came out of a White House meeting between President Trump and California mayors and sheriffs who oppose the state’s policy of “sanctuary cities” to protect illegal immigrants: “Trump Rants on Unauthorized Migrants: ‘These Aren’t People, These Are Animals.”
Fox News anchor Bret Baier appeared on ABC's The View on Thursday to promote his new book Three Days in Moscow about Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. But the ABC crew peppered him with questions about their favorite topic -- the White House aide who insulted John McCain -- and whether Fox News is the "administration's mouthpiece," since it's reported Sean Hannity talks to the president nightly after his show. Baier replied "There may be opinion shows that have a direct relationship with the president, and Sean is not calling me and giving me a download of the call."
A new feminist book introduces babies to politics. Yes, babies. And while it claims show children their value (a good thing!), the pages aren’t exactly welcoming to pro-lifers or conservatives. On Tuesday, Buzzfeed contributor Loryn Brantz published her new children’s book titled Feminist Baby Finds Her Voice! Feminist media, from Teen Vogue’s Lauren Duca to feminist author Roxane Gay, praised the book that teaches youngsters how to protest.
There are 60 dead Palestinians at the Israel/Gaza border at the moment, and Israel has been the one doing the shooting. Sounds bad, right? Well if you’ve got your head up your you know what and follow the narrative of the Washington Post you might be led to believe that America’s ally is encouraging mass murder while we look on smiling.
As though it wasn’t bad enough that some journalists are distorting Donald Trump’s attacks on the murderous MS-13 gang, journalist John Harwood on Thursday tweeted a sympathetic spin on the vicious killers. Instead of altering the President’s comments to be an attack on immigrants, the CNBC reporter offered a defense of the vile criminals who dismember their victims.
CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steven Portnoy snuck in a question at Thursday’s White House Press Briefing to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders concerning the President’s comments about illegal immigrant gang members (specifically MS-13) being “animals.” Sanders didn’t waste the opportunity to savagely torch the liberal media for rallying to the murderous gang’s defense against the President, even suggesting that the President didn’t go far enough.
