During a press conference in New Delhi amid his India trip on Tuesday, President Trump had another run-in with CNN’s favorite liberal resistance reporter Jim Acosta.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews offered a mea culpa to 2020 Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders Monday night, after comparing his win in Nevada to the Nazis taking France in World War II.

Meet tonight’s Democratic debate moderators: One (Gayle King) is a Democratic donor and the other one (Norah O'Donnell) might as well be. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King has a long history of supporting Democrats. According to Open Secrets, she’s donated to Barack Obama, the DNC, and Harold Ford Jr and is “good friends” with New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker. Even while at CBS, she donated to Obama and attended his birthday party. Most recently, she vacationed with the Obamas.
The First Amendment covers freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But what if someone’s religion does not allow homosexuality? Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” When the founder of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, posted on Facebook that he had a moral objection to Democratic candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his post was removed.
The man known as the “Gypsy King,” Tyson Fury, made sure to clear up any doubt about who the true King is after his seventh round Technical Knock Out of Deontay Wilder Saturday night.
When Republican-controlled statehouses were passing a wave pro-life laws around the country in 2019, the liberal broadcast networks looked on in horror and bashed the bills. On Monday, after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Trump administration’s Protect Life Rule, the networks were nowhere to be seen. Instead, CBS Evening News reported on a study about smart speakers, ABC’s World News Tonight covered the weather, and NBC Nightly News complained about an Amazon series.
Here’s the shocking revelation of the latest episode of The New Pope: the Pope is not a good person. Even though the previous season of The Young Pope made that pretty clear, the HBO series still had to hammer home that unpleasant fact. Now we’re contending with an “antichrist” young Pope along with an “irresponsible,” “conceited,” drug addicted new Pope. The only winners here are those who don't watch the show.
One of the big announcements to come out of President Trump’s visit to India, so-far this week, was a $3 billion deal to supply the country with new military helicopters. But the viewers of ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News on Monday were misled to believe the visit as just the President was just on a sightseeing trip by ignoring the deal and other trade negotiations. Combined, the two networks didn’t even spend 30 seconds on Trump’s official trip abroad.
New on February 24: MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell charged that President Trump “is a Russian operative.” Picking up on some news reports on a briefing about intel community speculation that Russia may want to help Trump’s re-election, which came a day before reports Russia wants to help Democratic contender Bernie Sanders, O’Donnell asserted the Trump administration “might be better labeled the Trump-Putin regime.”
What in the world is Paul Krugman talking about? And yes, this is quite the evergreen take, but the New York Times columnist has done it again, folks. This time, he tweeted on Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders (I-VT) “is NOT a left-leaning version of Trump” or “a wannabe authoritarian ruler.” RedState's Sister Toldjah had a field day on Monday, recapping how this was only the latest bizarre insistence Krugman has offered during this 2020 cycle.
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
Can Bloomberg’s money hack the election? Twitter moderators would disagree. Twitter reportedly suspended 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts this past Friday for engaging in “platform manipulation.” For all of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s money and unorthodox media strategies, he can't seem to buy an authentic grassroots following. “We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times (The Times).
Liberal billionaire Warren Buffett, who’s been fairly quiet this election cycle, took to CNBC to weigh in on the Democratic primary races. As it turns out, even The Billion-Dollar King of Abortion found self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) too left-wing.
