The Drudge Report on Monday linked to an interview New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet gave to the socialist British newspaper The Guardian. Baquet went Full Acosta and insisted that when President Trump calls reporters names, it endangers their lives. Aren't reporters supposed to have thick skins? They dish it out, but can't take it? So when The New York Times compares the president to Hitler, does that endanger the president's life?
It seems anyone to the right of Karl Marx is considered a “moderate” in today’s Democrat party. On ABC's The View Monday, the hosts were discussing a new Iowa poll out this weekend that showed a significant bump for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 race. Co-host Joy Behar claimed he was rising in the polls because he was a “moderate” Democrat, who was “fresh, new and gay” but also in a “traditional” same-sex marriage. What?
Marco Rubio was roundly criticized when during the 2016 primary he made suggestive remarks about Donald Trump's supposedly small hands. But Joe Scarborough decided to jump right down in that same gutter on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on the loss of Ed Rispone, the Trump-backed candidate in the Louisiana governor's race, Scarborough smirked: "Little hands, little fingers, little coattails."
Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and the Fox News Channel combined. With an estimated 254 million persons over the age of 18 in the U.S., that suggests 95 percent (about 241.3 million) were doing something else on Friday.
Twitter has banned political ads -- except for some “cause-based” ads it still thinks are important. After Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that all political ads were to be banned from the platform, both the left and the right were concerned about their ads.
All three morning shows on Monday ignored the move by Congress to investigate ABC covering up the network’s burying of the Jeffrey Epstein story back in 2016. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy co-authored a letter to ABC’s president about the sexual predator and how journalist ABC Amy Robach was not allowed report on her extensive 2016 findings. McCarthy wrote, “What appears to have been presented to Ms. Robach is first-hand evidence of human trafficking.”
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became quite agitated during an interview with Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan, aired on Sunday, when the CBS anchor dared to mention Republican criticism of the impeachment process against President Trump.
The media are so desperate to get President Trump ousted disgracefully from office, that they are already predicting his fate in the history books. On ABC’s Good Morning America Monday, Terry Moran and George Stephanopoulos promoted a new ABC poll which showed 70% of the public believed the Ukraine phone call was “wrong” but only a slight majority supported impeachment. Still, the network spun the numbers as good news for Democrats. Moran even claimed that Trump’s denials over quid pro quo would become as infamous as Bill Clinton’s denials about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
As is par for the course with the left, they get everything exactly backwards. It is incredibly ironic and ungrateful that Eva Longoria, famous television and film actress worth $50M, would complain that women are ‘alienated’ by Hollywood, but she seems to think that they are.
Google makes many claims about its search engine. The results are not curated, they are not manipulated, and there is no blacklist of sites, says the company. However, none of these statements are true, according to an extensive investigation from The Wall Street Journal.
One of the maddening acts of so-called "fact checking" is the arrogant attempt to predict future outcomes at election time. It should seem obvious this is beyond the territory of "facts." Now PolitiFact has slapped a "True" label on Elizabeth Warren's cost estimates for her socialist "Medicare for All" plan....even as it appends an "If true" disclaimer to it.
CBS’s Madam Secretary has been on a roll in its final season. After achieving the liberal dream of a Hillary Clinton-like female president, the season also lectured us on free speech and brave reporters. This week, we’re back to praising the “defenders of truth” in the media, straight from the president herself.
CW’s Batwoman is a bad show on good day. When it occasionally brings up social justice talking points, it can only get worse. Unfortunately, this week is another time where things only get worse as Batwoman fights her biggest enemy: homophobia.
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof attacked the one network not pushing all-out for a Trump impeachment in the Sunday Review: “Is Fox ‘News’ Or Trump’s Bodyguard?” For the veteran liberal commentator, things were better when the three networks spouted the same brand of anti-Nixon corporate liberalism to an audience with few other news choices. Kristof got wacky: "Some 18,000 people died in that flu epidemic, so it seems logical that some died because they believed Fox News.....In the meantime, Fox News is aggressively defending Trump, joining in smears of public servants and playing a role in history that embarrasses many of us in journalism."
Nine days after the election, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin conceded defeat on Thursday. A year after her defeat, Georgia's Stacey Abrams maintains she was robbed. Ashe Schow at the Daily Wire pointed out this week that NPR has a very different standard on this score for Republicans and Democrats.
