Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
Ever wonder what tech giants do to keep their proprietary information in house and away from other tech companies just as savvy as they are? Microsoft is one company that has kept an eye out for this. “Microsoft has a list of online services that it forbids its workforce to use,” according to Mashable, reporting on a story originally from GeekWire. This list includes programs such as slack, Google Docs, Amazon Web Services, and any other outside web sources.
On Monday, Morning Joe finally discovered something that the rest of America has known for over a year: there is a humanitarian crisis at America’s southern border. In doing so, however, they ignored the real issues plaguing America’s Customs and Border Patrol and went straight to throwing particularly disgusting political dirt at the Trump Administration.
A crowdfunding platform has joined the mass liberal panic over state abortion bans. GoFundMe, the for-profit site where users create donation funds, made its own campaign to raise money for abortion clinics. On June 21, the fund was launched with the promise that all the donations would be handed over to Planned Parenthood, National Network of Abortion Funds, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Bloomberg says “it’s unrealistic to expect the board’s decisions will happen with the speed necessary to police the internet.” In order for the board to be effective, it will have to serve like an appeals court, evaluating decisions that have already been made.
Longtime ABC journalist Sam Donaldson unburdened himself on Thursday's CNN Tonight, pleading with moderate Republican John Kasich to run against Donald Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries. He also blamed the president for the escalating problems with Iran. According to Donaldson, it’s all because Trump scrapped Barack Obama’s Iran deal.
An Antifa-related activist group called “All Out DC” has been putting up posters with the personal information of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as well as other free speech figures, in an effort to “Block the Alt-Right.” The group’s poster announced an upcoming rally on July 6 along with Carlson’s face and personal information. The caption labeled him as a “racist with a huge following and platform” who “uses it to promote racist dogwhistles.”
Project Veritas has released an insider leak story exposing Google for biased, manipulative practices. James O’Keefe’s whistleblower outlet posted a video of Google Responsible Innovation Head, Jen Gennai, in a June 24 report. The Google manager said that “breaking up Google” would not “prevent the next Trump situation.”
On Monday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie talked to the cast of Showtime’s The Loudest Voice about their “damning portrayal” of late Fox News chief Roger Ailes in the new series. Guthrie’s disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer and NBC’s questionable handling of his years of alleged sexual harassment wasn’t mentioned during the lengthy segment.
On the PBS NewsHour on Friday night, liberal analyst Mark Shields and "conservative" analyst David Brooks aggressively agreed with each other, as usual -- this time, in defending Democrat front-runner Joe Biden after he brought up working with segregationist Democrats in the 1970s to get work done. Brooks, a New York Times columnist, compared segregationists to "homophobes," which is highly offensive if it's used to describe social conservatives and orthodox religious people. Shields shamed Biden's Democrat opponents as purists who would make a minority party.
President Trump is “terrorizing” illegal immigrants, according to the liberal media, by threatening mass deportations across the country. It was the buzz word used by MSNBC and CBS last week and on Monday, Princeton University professor and contributor Eddie Glaude repeated that rhetoric on MSNBC Live. He stopped just shy of calling the President a terrorist, accusing him of committing a “terroristic gesture” by threatening to enforce the law.
In Sunday’s New York Times, the paper’s Vatican-beat reporter Jason Horowitz brought his usual caffeinated anti-conservative labeling habit to a story sketching out a clash over migrants in Italy pitting “far-right...ultra-conservative” Catholics like Cardinal Raymond Burke against the liberal views of Pope Francis: “As the Pope Champions Migrants, Some Cardinals Court the Far Right.”: "When the far-right Italian politician Matteo Salvini rose to testify that he hoped to be a better Christian despite being a divorced and first-class 'sinner,' one of the ultraconservative cardinals most critical of the pope smiled and clapped on the dais behind him."
When the left conducts polls, it’s not surprising to see how they can manipulate questions to obtain their desired results. Atlantic staff writer Robinson Meyer on June 21 gushed how the Democratic Party has “become more interested” in pushing forward the Green New Deal (GND) advocated by Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). He brought up how a carbon tax was apparently no longer “climate policy’s hottest plan.”
On Wednesday and Thursday NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo will host the first Democratic primary debates. If they are to match what their CNBC colleagues did with the Republican candidates in 2015, they should ask questions designed to humiliate, badger and paint the Democratic field as not ready for prime time, cartoonish, out-of-touch extremists.
The 2019 BET Awards were held on Sunday night, hosted by actress Regina Hall. Although Hall made a big deal hailing from D.C., the awards were mostly non-politically, with a few exceptions. One marginal example came when "The Central Park Five," redubbed "The Exonerated Five" after renewed attention brought by the Netflix Series When They See Us, got a standing ovation as they introduced a performance by H.E.R. of her politically-tinged song "Lord Is Coming."
