It’s almost predictable at this point: Democrats embarrass themselves, and the media frames it not as a Democratic error, but as a case of cynical Republicans “pouncing” for political advantage. The latest example was a New York Times story on the thoroughly botched embarrassment that was the launch of the radical Green New Deal: “Lawmaker’s Staff Flubs Green New Deal Plan, and G.O.P. Pounces,” the headline to New York Times environmental reporter Coral Davenport’s story. She let Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez team’s incompetence and fibbing off the hook and botched the controversy’s timeline to cover for leftist darling.
Proud Christian Hollywood superstar Chris Pratt is finally hitting back at LGBTQ actress Ellen Page for attacking his faith.
A hard hitting Trump rally is often the best setting to witness the Twitter implosions of showbiz personalities in real time. Monday night’s social media turnout during Trump’s El Paso speech definitely showcased some volcanic Hollywood hate.
On Monday’s New Day, CNN co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota discussed the 2020 campaign with political reporter MJ Lee and analyst Harry Enten. The conversation specifically focused on the latest Democrats to enter the race, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Amy Klobuchar. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for the conversation to devolve into accusations of racism against President Trump.
Twitter wants to regulate the kind of speech that’s allowed on its platform. But there will be some backlash from those who are banned.
For reasons I don’t quite understand, Netflix has brought back its reboot of liberal Norman Lear's One Day at a Time for a third season. It began airing February 8 and the central theme of the teenage daughter’s lesbian sexuality is in your face from the very first episode. And, of course, there are a few random swipes at President Trump, too, throughout the thirteen episodes.
The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
MSNBC's Morning Joe took a break from comparing Trump to assorted dictators past and present to heap copious praise on Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tuesday morning.
The Washington Post "Fact Checker" has thrown a penalty flag at freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.), but not about her scandalous chatter about Israel. It's about wages paid at McDonald's. She mangled her numbers badly -- by as much as 300 percent -- but chief "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler only rated this as "2 Pinocchios," or "half true." Half?
The headlines from CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post on Tuesday had trouble explaining the honest truth: Congresswoman Ilhan Omar made anti-Semitic comments over the weekend and was slammed by fellow Democrats. A CNN on-screen graphic spun, “Rep. Omar Apologizes 'Unequivocally' for Tweets Called Anti-Semitic.”
During what was supposed to be a story about the anti-Semitism scandal swirling around Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, on Tuesday, NBC’s Today show managed to work in not one, but two attacks on Republicans. Eager to deflect criticism from Democrats, the segment featured jabs at Texas Senator Ted Cruz and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
It look less than twenty minutes for the Tuesday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe to reach the conclusion that President Trump was just like Hitler. The show then called Republicans hypocrites for blasting Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic tweets.
The stingy $1.375 billion allocated towards a border barrier in Monday night’s budget deal may mean it is inevitable that President Trump will soon declare a national emergency in order to ensure construction of a wall. If this happens, expect CNN and MSNBC hosts to howl about the nameless “experts” who’ve supposedly deemed the project “an ineffective waste of money” designed to solve a “manufactured crisis” — because that’s exactly what they did during the 35-day government shutdown.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough praises as "strong" the conclusion of President Trump's speech in El Paso, and warns: "any Democrat that thinks they're going to cakewalk to beating Donald Trump in 2020, like they thought in 2016, and like everybody in the press thought in 2016, you need to watch the last four or five minutes of his speech and understand: Democrats have an uphill battle here. It's not going to be easy."
Trouble in liberal paradise? Apparently BuzzFeed News is concerned that America’s number one abortion business isn’t focusing enough on abortion and politics in the wake of former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ departure last year. Somehow, BuzzFeed News seems to be trying to spin it that new Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen is not radically pro-abortion enough.
