The nation's Spanish-speaking networks are increasingly desperate to push their coronavirus panic-porn morning, day and night. As of late, they’ve become fixated with President Trump's admission of taking hydroxychloroquine as a prophylaxis. As can be expected, sarcasm and skepticism about the treatment pervaded the airwaves, with the nets' anchors insisting that the drug is ineffective against the coronavirus and that it is life-threatening- only to be contradicted by one of their own: Univision's resident cardiologist, Dr. Juan Rivera.
On Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted the “drop in pollution”as a “positive consequence of the pandemic” that has killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world and left tens of millions unemployed. Talking to Penn State University professor and climate activist Michael Mann, she hoped Americans would seize on this “unique” “opportunity” to “change our habits.”
The week, a new documentary alleges that Norma McCorvey, aka “Jane Roe” in Roe v. Wade, claimed she was paid to convert to the pro-life position in a “deathbed confession.” Those who knew her in the pro-life movement are skeptical and said she always seemed sincere in her beliefs, pointing to two decades' worth of McCorvey’s pro-life activism as proof. The documentary isn’t even out yet (AKA Jane Roe will be released by FX on Friday) but still pro-abortion activists pounced on the news to indict the entire pro-life movement and Christian right.
On Tuesday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS and CNN International, host Christiane Amanpour's hyperbole button was on as she essentially mocked President Donald Trump's "America First" policy by touting misleading claims that America is "first" in coronavirus infections and deaths, and also highlighted quotes calling the U.S. a "collapsing republic" and likening it to a "Third World dictatorship."
In a meeting with league owners Tuesday, the NFL approved rules requiring more minority candidates for coaching and general manager (GM) jobs to be interviewed. A virtual affirmative action proposal to elevate the draft positions of teams hiring minority coaches and GMs was tabled due to a lack of owner support, prompting a race-filled diatribe from Deadspin writer Carron J. Phillips.
It’s embarrassing enough for the New York Times’ Lisa Lerer, who covers "campaigns, elections and political power,” to publicly admit she has no idea what “red-pill” signifies. A reference was recently tweeted by technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, who is fighting California’s coronavirus restrictions on business, and Lerer was on it. She turned over the descriptive responsibilities to colleague Taylor Lorenz, who gave her own crazed interpretation of the wide-spread right-wing meme: "The concept of being 'red pilled' has been widely adopted by the incel community, neo-Nazis and right-wing extremists to signify that they’ve become awakened to these fringe ideologies...."
Just three weeks after MSNBC analyst Dr. Irwin Redlener compared President Trump to mass suicide-leading cult leader Jim Jones, he appeared on MSNBC Live and picked up where he left off. This time, Redlener, the Director of Columbia University’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness, described the President as a “personal public health hazard to the citizens of this country.”
As the inevitable, real-life defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment nears, Mrs. America focused on the made-up defection of a devoted conservative woman. It also used a host of negative characterizations against the same woman (Alice).
The next to last episode, “Houston,” focused on the Women’s Convention that took place in 1977, but focused almost entirely on how the convention affected fictional characters Alice and Pamela, bringing them a kind of liberal enlightenment.
CNN has been flouting journalistic ethics for weeks now as they allowed Chris “Fredo” Cuomo to interview his Democratic brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo almost weekly. Things came to a disgusting head during Wednesday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime when Chris thumbed his nose at bipartisan calls to investigate his brother’s disastrous mishandling of the outbreak in his state. Instead, he pulled out oversized, prop cotton swabs to mock how big his brother’s nose was.
Pam Key at Breitbart noted that MSNBC contributor Claire McCaskill toed the usual line of the Media-Democrat Complex on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, claiming that Barack Obama’s administration did not have even “a hint of corruption during eight years.”
NBC Nightly News may have been the lone network to dare report on how Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had forced nursing homes to take in COVID patients (and then deny them access to the state’s supply of personal protective equipment) last week, but come Wednesday, they were just as silent as ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News on reporting on calls to appoint outside counsel and investigate.
After the recent liberal media meltdown over hydroxychloroquine, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tore apart their hysteria in Wednesday’s briefing. In particular, she took aim at CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo for taking the more-dangerous quinine during his coronavirus bout. And seeing as how deranged corners of the liberal media have been seemingly rooting for the drug to fail, it was time someone --- anyone --- called out their nonsense.
MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle became the latest media personality on Tuesday to express hope that the current pandemic might present an opportunity to enact left-wing policies. Speaking with Bernie Sanders, Ruhle asked, "Then is there -- maybe I sound romantic, but is there an opportunity to create at a time like this a better, smarter, more inclusive capitalism?"
On Tuesday's All In show, MSNBC contributor and disgruntled former Republican Steve Schmidt was full of hyperbole as he decried Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro as "spectacularly nuts," and incorrectly claimed that one is more likely to die of coronavirus in the U.S. than in any other country.
If there was ever a reason to defund liberal National Public Radio (NPR) from its taxpayer cash flows, this latest news surely makes a strong case. NPR’s Media Correspondent, Host and Editor David Folkenflik published a glowing piece heralding how a “pair of philanthropists” Eric Schmidt (former Google CEO) and wife Wendy Schmidt are “seeking to promote more local coverage from public radio with a gift of $4.7 million for NPR collaborations in the Midwest and California.”
