After President Donald Trump last week called for "due process" for former White House aide Rob Porter after accusations that he abused both his ex-wives, the dominant liberal media responded by again resurrecting discredited claims that Trump lobbied for the execution of the Central Park Five who were accused of raping a jogger in 1989. In fact, according to a transcript recently posted in Nexis, Trump argued against executing juveniles and pushed instead for longer prison sentences as he appeared on CNN's Larry King Live in May 1989 and responded to questions about his ad calling for New York to pass a new death penalty law for murder cases.
On Tuesday's Fresh Air on NPR, host Terry Gross and her guest, liberal author Joshua Green, discussed how Trump and Trump-affiliated Republicans somehow created an "epidemic" of sexual assault. Green wrote a book on Trump adviser Steve Bannon unsubtly titled Devil's Bargain. Gross briefly mentioned NPR has its own sexual harassment problem ("epidemic"?).
All three networks on Thursday reacted similarly to Donald Trump’s speech about the mass shooting in Broward County, Florida, knocking it at as free of calls for gun control and specific policy. Yet, the President, did mention mental health reform, something that NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed to miss.
Martin Rogers is probably a nice man, and he seems sincere when he writes in USA Today, “Tolerance and understanding of the LGBT community still has some way to travel, but isn’t there enough of it for there to at least be a conversation about new Olympic events allowing two men and two women to skate in tandem?”
In the wake of Wednesday's horrific Florida school shooting, MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosted a handful of pro-gun control senators whose states have experienced similar tragedies. But while Florida’s Democratic Senator Bill Nelson was invited to appear, NBC analyst John Heilemann remarked that Marco Rubio – also from Florida – was “not welcome” on the show until he was willing to advocate for firearm restrictions.
In a sit-down interview with Axios on Ash Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence told investigative journalist Mike Allen that he was upset to hear about The View’s callous remarks about his faith on their show earlier this week.
In the wake of Wednesday’s horrific shooting at a Florida high school, on Thursday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly took time out of the beginning of her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show to demand gun control, blast Second Amendment advocates, and label politicians who opposed such regulations as cowardly and “weak.”
It should not have taken a crystal ball to predict that the media would use the tragic school shooting in Florida as an opportunity to push for gun control. Not surprisingly, the anchors of CNN’s New Day spent a sizable portion of its Thursday morning broadcast acting as advocates for gun control.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following open letter today in response to ongoing hateful comments made by ABC hosts, including The View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin. Hostin referred to Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith as “dangerous.” Behar equated it to a “mental illness.”
Never letting a tragedy go to waste, many liberals in the media immediately took to Twitter to blame Republicans for the Parkland High School shooting that took place Thursday afternoon. Several journalists from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and more blasted Republicans who had received donations from the NRA as being responsible for a sick kid’s murderous rampage.
You know who Donald Trump is afraid of? Hair stylists? Nutritionists? Nope. Witches! We know that thanks to NBC’s new “unique journalistic project,” NBC Left Field. (Yes, that’s really the name.) It’s essentially Vice with peacock logo. The group of “journalists, filmmakers, designers and programmers,” makes short documentaries about super-important stuff. Like witches.
New York Times reporter Katrin Bennhold’s front-page story commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Still Chipping Away at a Wall Demolished a Generation Ago,” contained an incredibly ignorant paragraph about the freedoms of East German women: "Eastern women, who were part of the work force and with free child care, were more emancipated than their western sisters...." But it's far from the worst Times story celebrating the former East Germany.
In the aftermath of Wednesday's terrible school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the liberal media callously rushed to use the deaths to push for more gun control. And in their haste, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) relied on a statistic from the anti-gun lobbying group Everytown for Gun Safety which claimed that there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. And since it fits the narrative, why fact check?
In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, host Don Lemon began Wednesday’s CNN Tonight completely off the rails as he delivered a rambling tirade smearing gun rights advocates and telling viewers it was only a matter of time before they or one of their loved ones was killed by a gun.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent over two and a half times more on trumpeting the need for gun control and chastising gun owners, the National Rifle Association, and ordinary Americans over the issue than covering the deadly Florida school shooting, and its victims. All told, Matthews spent 38 minutes and 46 seconds on segments or parts of ones discussing the issue with guests but only 14 minutes and 48 seconds on the actual shooting.
