During a softball interview with former Democratic Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell managed to avoid a single mention of the scandals plaguing top liberal politicians in the commonwealth. That despite the fact that McAuliffe touted his efforts to help Virginia Democrats win state legislative elections numerous times throughout the exchange.
On Tuesday night, MSNBC host Chris Matthews spent the duration of Hardball going after his fellow lefties from their own even more fanatical flank, pushing impeachment because America has “a President who broke his oath” who’s illegitimate on similar footing with disputed home run king Barry Bonds due to his reported use of steroids.
On Wednesday, it was announce that liberal actress Kathy Griffin is hosting the Shorty Awards, the online social media awards show with a heavily liberal slant. Even by Hollywood standards, these awards appear remarkably politicized. Unglued actress Kathy Griffin, made infamous recently for holding a fake severed head of President Trump in a photoshoot, is both the host and a finalist of this year’s best celebrity category. Other nominees include former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Russell Brand.
Former CNN host D.L. Hughley, on Tuesday, issued marching orders to congressional Democrats as he demanded that they do their “job” and impeach Donald Trump. On his self-titled TV One show the stand-up comic went on to say the word “justice” should be taken “out of the dictionary” if Democrats don’t move to remove Trump.
The Trump Collusion Pushers at CNN are remarkably unwilling to acknowledge that the Other Campaign was digging for oppo-research dirt on Trump using Russian contacts. One might argue they are either (a) dumb or (b) playing dumb about the Clinton Games in Russia. In the second hour of his radio show on Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh replayed CNN Inside Politics anchor John King completely ignoring the Clinton Games. Limbaugh attacked King as "disingenuous" and said "You're better than this."
CNN host Brooke Baldwin closed the 3:00 PM ET hour of CNN Newsroom by mentioning that “the UN Security Council passed a resolution to protect wartime rape victims” before complaining that “it was missing some key language that mentioned sexual and reproductive health.” Baldwin brought in CNN Senior Diplomatic Correspondent Michelle Kosinski to discuss the matter further. Kosinski attributed the absence of the language to the Trump administration and proceeded to portray the administration as heartless for taking the language out of the resolution.
Amy Poehler, famous SNL alum and star of NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation got candid about feminism and the state of America under President Trump, revealing that such intense topics may be starting to push her over the edge. In a Hollywood Reporter interview, the comedian spoke to journalists about how she has become a rabid feminist in the wake of the #MeToo movement, and how the election of Donald Trump was “so upsetting” and a “huge loss for all of us.”
After a meeting with President Trump on April 23, Twitter rolled out some stronger policy changes. Twitter is ready to prevent misinformation on its platform, says Twitter Safety’s new blog post. Twitter is ready to prevent misinformation on its platform, says Twitter Safety’s new blog post. The article stated that “Any attempts to undermine the process of registering to vote or engaging in the electoral process is contrary to our company’s core values.” The company created a new reporting feature that would allow users to report content more efficiently. It plans on testing it on the Indian election and the EU elections this year.
The cast of MSNBC's Morning Joe spent much of Wednesday's show arguing that it would be foolish for Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist, along with most of the panelists, concurred that Democrats would be wise to focus on winning in 2020.
Don’t write an introduction to a report before you get the actual document or you might be disappointed. (If you’re part of the liberal media that is.) On Wednesday, the Washington Post released a print edition of the Mueller Report, complete with “introduction and analysis by reporters.” The cover blurbs the “long-awaited text.” The lack of collusion and no charges of obstruction may be a disappointment, but Post writers Rasalind S. Helderman and Matt Zapotosky kept their apocalyptic tone.
Wednesday on The View, co-host Joy Behar had an interesting theory on why Democrats could lose the upcoming 2020 presidential election. To guest Kirsten Gillibrand she worried that her party would lose to Trump in 2020, because Democrats didn’t “play dirty” like Republicans did. Says who?
In a mixed-up, apples-to-oranges ‘news’ report, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos attempted to gainsay President Trump’s longstanding concern about the high cost of illegal immigration by citing earnings and tax revenues from all immigrants, both those who are lawfully present in the United States and those who are not.
Politico's "Morning Media" newsletter on Wednesday touted a "big comeback" for MSNBC host Brian Williams. Based on what? Reporters Daniel Lippman and Paul Volpe begin simply by noting he anchored live Mueller Report coverage with Nicolle Wallace and beat CNN (as if that's much of an achievement), but not Fox. The disgraced NBC anchor wins his 11 pm time slot, but that might be in part because Fox News viewers have retired for the evening.
During an interview with Melinda Gates, wife of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle pushed the idea of a “wealth tax” and wondered if it was time to “revisit capitalism.” Amid advocating the left-wing policies, Ruhle largely dismissed the role of private philanthropy in addressing societal problems.
One way to fight Big Tech tyranny might be a new Texas bill that aims to stop companies from discriminating against conservative viewpoints. The bill by Republican state Sen. Bryan Hughes would prevent Big Tech companies from censoring conservative viewpoints online. “Senate Bill 2373 tries to prevent those companies that control these new public spaces, this new public square, from picking winners and losers based on content,” Hughes said at a committee meeting.
