Indulging in obvious identify politics in Wednesday’s New York Times, reporter Elizabeth Dias celebrated Rashida Tlaib’s Democratic primary victory in Detroit right along with her supporters in “Candidate’s Palestinian Heritage Infuses Sense of Community in Detroit.” Already, her story offers a remarkable counterpoint to anti-Muslim policy and sentiment rising around the country, and especially to President Trump, who has banned travel from several majority-Muslim countries....Ms. Tlaib, 42, represents a new addition to the mosaic of American politics."
Hari Nef’s upcoming film is about young girls surviving in a “social media Trump era.” In an August interview with Vanity Fair, model Hari Nef discussed starring in the film Assassination Nation, which hits theaters this September. The movie is a “modern reimagining of the Salem witch trials,” according to Vanity Fair associate editor Keziah Weir. But Nef offered a more descriptive take on it.
In a segment that sounded like it was written for The Onion, MSNBC host Brian Williams tried to bring something different to the media’s reporting on President Trump calling former aide Omarosa a “dog.” So he brought on Washington Post’s Philip Rucker on his show August 14, to speculate whether or not the President hated actual dogs. The two liberal journalists took Trump to task, using Google image search, to see if they could find any photographic evidence of the President with the animals. And just because it’s MSNBC, the pair ended the ridiculous segment by claiming Trump was behaving like a Nazi by using that term.
It’s sad when the liberal comedian on your network is tougher than most of the journalists. But that’s what happened on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning as socialist Bernie Sanders made two network appearances. Late Night host Stephen Colbert repeatedly pressed Sanders on the problems with promoting socialism in America. Over on CBS This Morning, the efforts were half-hearted at best.
A little over a week after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey diverged from other tech giants by stating that Alex Jones would be held to the same standard as every other account, rather than succumbing Twitter succumbing to outside pressure to ban him, Twitter has given Jones a temporary seven-day suspension.
During a softball interview with left-wing Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday’s Late Night, aired early Wednesday morning, NBC’s Seth Meyers wondered if the Massachusetts lawmaker was “relieved” that the Democratic Party was “finally” becoming as radical as her.
On Tuesday, CNN aired a segment taking a look into administration officials and even Republican members of Congress who have relatives that appear to disagree with their work. CNN’s White House Correspondent Chris Cillizza joined host Brooke Baldwin to give a rundown of the spats.
ABC, NBC and CBS ignored the Republican wins in last night’s primary election races and didn’t update viewers on the finalized results from last Tuesday’s race in Kansas either. After spending last week hyping Democrat candidates and criticizing Trump picks as extremists who had no chance of winning, the networks had to eat their words this morning as Trump picks in several states won their primaries last night.
The economy may look good now, but hold off on the “confetti,” says left-wing Salon. While some people look for silver linings, Salon went in search of economic storm clouds on Aug. 12. It’s headline proclaimed, “The end really is near: a play-by-play of the coming economic collapse.” It also found an economist rooting for a downturn, to get rid of the Trump administration.
On Tuesday night, CNN again treated it as somehow newsworthy that a public official may have family members that they are not even close to who disagree with them politically as host Anderson Cooper showed a pre-recorded interview with retired Dr. David Glosser, the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller, about an op ed in Politico he wrote in which he called Miller an "immigration hypocrite."
On Tuesday, Twitter announced vague plans to crack down on accounts that have attempted to evade Twitter suspensions by creating new accounts. In a tweet posted by Twitter Safety, the company said, “This week, we are suspending accounts for attempting to evade an account suspension. These accounts were previously suspended for abusive behavior or evading a previous suspension, and are not allowed to continue using Twitter.”
Just a day after rationalizing the leftist violence by Antifa against police, bystanders, and the press as some twisted form of greater “morality,” CNN host Chris Cuomo closed out PrimeTime by condemning and scolding the President for using coarse language against his opponents. And at the same time, suggested the President was acting worse than a child and like a drunk at the bar.
On Monday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, host Brian Williams devoted a couple of minutes to hyping the cases of two Republican publican figures who have recently been publicly excoriated by liberal family members. After noting reports of families being "torn apart" by political disputes in recent years, Williams brought up Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte coming under criticism by his son on Twitter.
As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
