Three weeks until the midterm elections and it’s Beto or bust in the Texas Senate race for the liberal media. During Wednesday’s edition of ABC’sWorld News Tonight, sensationalist anchor David Muir and Congressional correspondent Mary Bruce gushed about Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke and how he called Republican Senator Ted Cruz by President Trump’s 2016 nickname for him: ‘lyin’ Ted’. The nickname was thrown around five times in just the one report.
Talk about a piece that twisted itself into quite the pretzel. In a piece Monday night for Slate’s Future Tense partnership with New America and Arizona State, James Erwin passed blame onto the President for the ancestry fiasco concerning Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA), suggesting it could lead to a new McCarthyism with politicians being “bullied” into taking such tests.
MTP Daily host Chuck Todd, perhaps sarcastically, referred to liberal Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as the “Bobby Kennedy of millennials.” The comment came in the midst of a discussion about how the media-friendly Democrat has fallen behind and is now going negative on his Texas opponent, Ted Cruz. Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.”

During Monday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon discussed a portrait of President Trump alongside previous Republican Presidents with New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz. According to Lemon, the image has received “a whole lot of attention” after Lesley Stahl conducted an interview with President Trump for CBS’s 60 Minutes in the private residence at the White House, where the painting was hung on the wall. Somehow, the topics of race and Joseph Stalin managed to come up in the discussion of the portrait.
The November issue of The Atlantic devoted 8,000 flowery words to excoriate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. McKay Coppins followed the ground-breaking former Republican Speaker of the House and presidential candidate around for “The Man Who Broke Politics -- Newt Gingrich turned partisan battles into bloodsport, wrecked Congress, and paved the way for Trump's rise. Now he's reveling in his achievements.”
Virtue signal maiden Amy Schumer spent her Monday talking about how hard it is being a woman. She sat down for the latest episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert to give her perspective on the daily struggles of life as a celebrity -- with all the hand wringing and pearl clutching we’ve come to expect from celeb interviews. In Schumer’s case, the whining is due to her bad luck being born female.
In an absurd segment Wednesday afternoon on CNN, political commentator Chris Cillizza and CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin slammed President Trump for not immediately condemning the Saudi Arabia government as akin to “believing” Justice Brett Kavanaugh and climate change skeptics.
Celebrities and other leftists are excited to unleash the awesome electoral power of #Resist during the midterm elections in November. The catch is, they must actually mobilize people to vote - and if they can’t do it by getting arrested, lying, calling their adversaries “racist,” or actually inspiring civic duty in people (too much trouble nowadays), they must resort to other methods. Kelly Wynne of Newsweek reported on Oct. 16 that clickbait might be the latest shenanigan.
On Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, only CBS News covered North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp becoming embroiled in a major scandal due to her re-election campaign publicly outing sexual assault survivors without their consent in a series of newspaper ads across the state.

If reality TV star Donald Trump can become president, why not solid gold Hollywood royalty? That’s what left-wing director and big, gassy hypocrite Michael Moore thinks. Lee Moran of Huffington Post reported on Oct. 16 that the filmmaker, during an interview on Good Morning Britain, confessed to hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that he may consider asking Tom Hanks to run for president -- ask him for the third time, that is.
Democrats in the 2018 midterms are enduring controversy and scandal. But you wouldn’t know it from the liberal media’s lack of interest. MRC Research Director Rich Noyes appeared on Fox and Friends, Wednesday, to hammer the networks for ignoring scandals involving liberals. For instance, according to a police report, Beto O’Rourke in his 20s attempted to flee a DUI accident: “CBS interviewed Beto O'Rourke on October 5th. Didn't bring it up. NBC flew their anchor down to Houston on October 8th. He did a big profile piece. Didn't mention it.”
