During MSNBC’s 11:00 a.m. ET hour impeachment trial coverage on Friday, correspondent Kasie Hunt engaged in some mind reading as she proclaimed that “we all know” Republican senators “are horrified by what the President is doing.” The comment came as she and anchor Chris Matthews hailed Democratic House manager Adam Schiff for being at his “absolute best.”
The CBSN online channel didn't provide live coverage of the president's remarks to the March for Life on Friday -- they mentioned it for a few seconds before leaping into more impeachment analysis. But in the minutes before impeachment coverage on Wednesday, they ran an exclusive interview from Davos, Switzerland with Planned Parenthood acting CEO Alexis McGill Johnson. Reporter Kate Smith wasn't asking the tough questions.
The ratings are in and just like during the House hearings, Americans have shown they are not interested in hearing the Democrat arguments to impeach President Trump. Collectively, the big three networks, who changed their regular programming to the Senate trial this week, lost about 3 million viewers, and for that grave error, they earned the wrath of The View hosts on Friday’s show.
On Friday afternoon before the Senate impeachment trial resumed, MSNBC continued to search their mental thesauruses for new ways to describe their dearly beloved lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA). What they came up with was to call his Thursday night speech “impassioned and unforgettable” and will be read “about in history books years from now.” To make matters even worse, Schiff was compared to Atticus Finich, Billy Joel, the late Prince, and Bruce Springsteen. Really.
Is Twitter’s leadership offended by babies and young families? Twitter’s warning used to keep viewers from unknowingly seeing inappropriate videos was censoriously applied to a Trump campaign pro-life promo. With Trump’s speech today, he became the first sitting president in American history to attend the March for Life, and his pro-life campaign video appeared to have been given an erroneous label/restriction by Twitter.
Just in time for the March For Life, another celeb-driven pro-abortion PSA has been making the rounds on social media, with the message that more Americans than ever are okay with killing babies. Take that, March For Life supporters.
Brian Williams announced himself to be the latest member of the Adam Schiff Fan Club on MSNBC's coverage of day three of the impeachment trial, but he did offer the House Democratic managers some advice: show more emotion. Williams was worried that Schiff, while "awfully impressive," was too boring, "people are searching for a way to say, “yeah, but,” and I have heard this morning -- Nicolle’s right-- people are saying, long on facts, short on emotion. Where is the emotion? Where is the appeal? Not just to the 100 [Senators], but to the further television audience."
Friday morning on CNN’s New Day, co-anchors John Berman and Alisyn Camerota spent at least two segments attacking Republicans as high school children that weren't taking the Senate impeachment trial "seriously." The co-hosts even hyped how the Senators could be thrown “in the slammer” over their behavior.
Shortly after 3 pm Eastern time on Thursday afternoon, the conservative blog Ace of Spades noted ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos was caught on camera making the slit-the-throat "kill" gesture to cut away from Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow taking press questions. They were nice enough to add "Hopefully MRC or someone will have it later." Challenge accepted.
In a gushing interview with the three female Democratic impeachment managers, aired on Friday’s Today show, NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt sounded like an adoring fan as she proclaimed: “Congresswomen Zoe Lofgren, Val Demings, and Sylvia Garcia are making history.” They all chatted about how “women are smarter than men” for backing the removal of President Trump from office.
The ratings are in for the first day of the Democratic House Managers impeachment arguments in front of the Senate, and the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) collectively lost about three million viewers who would have been expected to watch their normal fare of daytime soap operas.
Self-awareness isn't Chris Cuomo's strong suit. The CNN host stepped in it, yet again on Thursday while trying to shame Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin over his comments to Swedish teen activist, Greta Thunberg at Davos, this week. Even after Cuomo’s network was sued for millions of dollars for defaming the Covington Catholic teens, Cuomo had the audacity to claim that kids were off limits.
While television networks largely celebrate abortion, it’s worth noting that a celebration of life is taking place, with the annual March for Life on January 24. Whether networks will finally give these peaceful pro-lifers their due in media coverage, after for years neglecting them, remains to be seen. Meanwhile, liberal television networks, from news shows, to actress spokespersons, to television dramas, continue to promote abortion to the public.
Our media elites arrogantly lecture about our democracy being undermined by robotic propaganda, but do they ever listen to themselves talk about the Democrats? Somehow, they think their robotic propaganda is just telling the “truth.” The press came to witness the Senate impeachment trial, and Adam Schiff had them at “hello. Did you know he's the second coming of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg?
As we usher in the new year, we also get to usher in Hollywood’s many liberal shows that have come back from their winter break. Freeform’s The Bold Type is definitely at the top of the list of leftist agenda-driven shows, and Thursday’s episode “Legends of the Fall Issue” was no exception as the conservative white male characters get put in their place (once again) by the younger, woke social justice warriors.
