Stephen Colbert's Showtime program, Our Cartoon President, began with a 60 Minutes interview of President Trump conducted by Anderson Cooper in the episode titled “Wealth Gap.” Airing on March 18, 2018, this falls in place with the much-hyped real interview with the stripper/porn star to be aired by the CBS show in one week.
Remember all those hilarious 2016 election night videos? Well, the good news is that a couple of the best scenes of liberal desolation that night have remained unseen...until now. They come to us by way of "The Final Year" documentary which was intended to celebrate the Obama adminstration foreign policy team in its last year of office. The featured players are former Secretary of State John Kerry, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former United Nations ambassador Samantha Power, and former creative writing graduate and deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.
Establishment press reporters continue to insist that they play it straight in their reporting. MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell is so objective that she has suggested an underhanded way the FBI's just-fired Andrew McCabe might save his pension.
The plea from New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman appeared in the Sunday Review: “Missing in the Fight Against Anti-Semitism.” The online headline: “Anti-Semitism Is Rising. Why Aren’t American Jews Speaking Up?” But Weisman focused solely and dubiously on controversial rightists and missed several recent examples of Democrats lining up with Louis Farrakhan. Weisman himself has a tangled history with accusations of anti-semitism that make his plea unconvincing.
On Friday's Outnumbered, former Obama State Department spokesman Marie Harfwas "sort of ... offended" when asked why there is "such an open animosity to Christianity from those on the left." Harf rejected the idea "that there is something inherent among the left that means we don’t like Christianity." Gosh, what would make anyone believe that?
In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABC’s This Week didn’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either.
Peter Beinart, contributing editor at The Atlantic, devoted 1,700 words in the April issue to ludicrously crowning House minority leader and arch-liberal Nancy Pelosi an amazingly effective congressional leader -- and dishonestly calling Republicans sexist for daring to oppose her: “The Nancy Pelosi Problem -- The first female speaker of the House has become the most effective congressional leader of modern times -- and, not coincidentally, the most vilified." He followed up: "...despite attributes that should make her endearing to cultural conservatives -- she is a Catholic Italian American grandmother of nine who entered politics only after staying home to raise her kids -- many Americans greeted her rise with, in the words of the Yale researchers, “contempt, anger, and/or disgust.” It was the same for Hillary Clinton...."
On Sunday morning's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton lamely compared himself to James Bond as he likened conservative donors Charles and David Koch to Bond-type "villains" because of their support for conservative causes.
In a bit of must-see TV, conservative icon and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this Sunday to debate host Brian Stelter on the topic of the media’s liberal bias. As would be expected, Shapiro wiped the floor with Stelter as he called out CNN for blatantly pushing a gun control agenda and not being objective.
The liberal Daily Beast website broke out in protest over a lack of decency on HBO...as if their decency was their reputation. The headline was "Bill Maher Cruelly Mocks Donald Trump Jr. Over His Divorce: The Real Time host was the only late-night comedian to tackle the unfortunate news." They even added the word "SAD" over the top for extra scolding.
In another self-inflicted blow to its credibility, Univision once again turned to the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to hype the alleged growth of ‘hate groups’ in the United States during the first year of the Trump administration.
In the wake of the former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing from the FBI for misleading Inspector General investigators, the liberal media were rife with misinformation of their own. During the Sunday morning news programs, NBC’s Chuck Todd mislead their viewers on why McCabe was fired and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos lied about the messages sent by pro-Hillary Clinton FBI agents investigating her and President Trump.
George Neumayr at The American Spectator made hay with the new House Intelligence Committee report that accuses former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of leaking to CNN in January as CNN's Jake Tapper broke the story that senior intelligence officials briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump on the Christopher Steele "dossier." That would make sense...considering CNN is now paying Clapper to be a yapper to Tapper on TV.
In the wake of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Friday firing of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, two Associated Press dispatches and an NBC news story wouldn't directly admit that his dismissal was largely based on a finding that he lied to internal investigators. Meanwhile, a pre-firing Wall Street Journal editorial had no problem using the word.
Scientific American continues on its activist leftward path, diluting its science trademark by transmitting biased anti-gun propaganda under the guise of unbiased sociology. The latest entry was posted Wednesday: “Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns? -- Research suggests it's largely because they're anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market and beset by racial fears.”
