The final race of the 2018 midterms will be held next Tuesday in Mississippi between Republican favorite Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy. The liberal media have been desperately trying to turn the tide by smearing Hyde-Smith with charges of racism over mostly innocuous things. And they’ve been turning a blind eye Espy’s ties to an African despot on trial for war crimes in the International Criminal Court, and the $750,000 Espy cashed in from him. Wednesday evening was ABC’s turn.
The Washington Post Fact Checker is constantly slinging its Pinocchios at Donald Trump, calling him out for lying here, there, and everywhere. But when a liberal Democrat presidential aspirant like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand messes up, curiously, somehow the Pinocchios get stuck and won't come out of the box. On November 15, Fact Checker Glenn Kessler wrote a piece titled "Gillibrand's cascade of misfired employment statistics." She admitted error....so no Pinocchios for your political record.
Popular protests in Tijuana, Mexico, against the arrival of thousands of Central American asylum seekers have headlined the national evening news on Univision in recent days. For a network whose chief anchor, Jorge Ramos, has been a champion of the caravans and an outspoken opponent of President Trump, the coverage of the protests has been especially revealing.
Flying solo with fiancé Mika Brzezinski off ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, fellow co-host and faux Republican Joe Scarborough helmed the Morning Joe ship on Wednesday and opened with a seven-minute, uninterrupted rant against his former friend-turned-President Donald Trump, deeming him an illegitimate President who’s “Nixonian” and “Stalinist” in light of his Khashoggi statement and a report he ordered political enemies investigated.
Hollywood has become synonymous with cynicism, entitlement, hypocrisy and group think. Its products and its people seem to be in a race to the bottom.
During Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace used reports of Ivanka Trump using a personal e-mail account to promote a story by The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake highlighting a long list of scandals and conflicts of interest involving one or more members of the Trump family. Wallace and her panel discussed some of these scandals, including Kellyanne Conway selling Ivanka Trump’s dresses on TV and Donald Trump Jr. allegedly lying to the FBI.
Liberal cable and broadcast networks have completely ignored a Detroit Judge’s finding that federal laws against female genital mutilation are unconstitutional. As of noon on Wednesday, Fox News remains the only television news outlet to have reported on this controversial decision.
The news media have figured out a way to fight the big social media companies — they want Congress to let them “collude against Google and Facebook,” according to Buzzfeed News.
Joe Scarborough’s past came back to bite him this week, as he was called out for hypocrisy in having Al Sharpton on his show to talk about racism. As a former GOP Congressman, the MSNBC host had quite the different take on Sharpton than he did while serving in Congress.
CNN seems to be staffed almost exclusively with prolific grandstanders and pontificators of a very high caliber. One of their loudest, angriest, and overly dramatic orators is Prime Time host Chris Cuomo. During Tuesday’s edition of the show, he ended the first hour of his program by telling the story of how Thanksgiving got reinvented during times of great hardship and strife in America. According to him, “Thanksgiving is coming, and not a moment too soon” because we’re experiencing one of those times.
Tuesday night, NBC's This is Us had fans coming back for more of what they love. "Six Thanksgivings" was a heartwarming Thanksgiving episode - that is, until one head-turning scene.
On November 18, Crenshaw appeared with three other House freshmen on CBS’s Face the Nation. He suggested the public image of Congress could be improved if the tone of the debate improved. “Let’s not attack each other’s intent….attack each other as a person. Let’s attack ideas. We can debate ideas, we can disagree on ideas all day long.” What made Crenshaw’s approach stand out was challenging the idea that freedom of the press is under attack.
In a revelation worth face-palming over, First Daughter Ivanka Trump was discovered to have used a private e-mail account for official business while transitioning into her governmental role. In an instance of actual honesty for what they were doing Tuesday, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt reported that the news had “critics pouncing” and “alleging hypocrisy after her father's relentless criticism of Clinton's e-mails.” Of course, this came after the liberal media downplayed Clinton’s E-Mail scandal.
It’s a sneaky tactic that the left uses in order discredit a portion of sensible individuals who disagree with their politics: push the narrative that those folks are part of a divisive right-wing mob. Conservative Catholics in this day and age are susceptible to this, even being labeled “alt-right” because they don’t agree with homosexual lifestyles.
Before he was president, Donald Trump opened one of his Atlantic City casinos to the struggling UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) for mixed martial arts competitions. The UFC is now celebrating its 25th anniversary with a 25-part documentary on UFC's streaming service, including the segment "Combatant in Chief: The Story of Donald Trump’s History in Combat Sports." That portion of the series and the men its centers on, President Trump and UFC President Dana White, is reviled as "deranged'' in a Deadspin.com review by freelance writer Josh Tucker.
