RESTON, VA — Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued a statement Monday responding to the media’s coverage of a 2016 post-election anti-Trump rally which was recently revealed to have been organized by Russians. On Friday, an indictment filing signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed Russians allegedly staged both pro-Trump and anti-Trump rallies with intent to sow discord in the United States.
While attempting to boost the candidacy of a Democrat running to unseat Republican California Congressman Devin Nunes, MSNBC inadvertently revealed that a lot voters in that district don’t really care about the Russia investigation. Even the Democrat himself complained that “the media only talk about the Russia thing.”
New on February 19: The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe show suggested that the “hope” for the future of the country is with black voter turnout for Democrats.
Appearing on CNN Newsroom Monday morning, Brian Stelter seemed excited about the prospect of an Oprah Winfrey presidency. Stelter praised Winfrey's moderation of a focus group on 60 Minutes, saying she was "trying to find a sense of unity in the country." Stelter contrasted Winfrey with President Trump, saying "It’s interesting she’s doing that given that a lot of people think Trump is doing the opposite, being very divisive."
In case it wasn’t clear, the New York Times really doesn’t like Donald Trump. The paper used President’s Day to reveal a new historian survey finding — surprise! — Donald Trump is ranked as the worst president ever. Worse than James Buchanan, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce and other perennial bottom dwellers. Again, this after just a year as president. And, of course, Barack Obama is listed as the ninth best commander-in-chief.
During CNN Newsroom on Monday morning, panelist Errol Louis dismissed claims from Trump supporters arguing that there is no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to secure an upset election victory, even insisting that there was “abundant evidence” of such collusion. While he cited the guilty pleas and indictments of former Trump campaign official Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Louis failed to admit that those indictments had nothing to do with alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Telemundo anchor María Celeste Arrarás is at it again, unleashing an unhinged editorial rant targeted at U.S. Senator Marco Rubio that is laden with fallacies, inconsistencies and outright smears in furtherance of the gun control agenda so prevalent in our domestic Spanish-language news media.
NBC star Lebron James can go on a profanity-laced tirade against the President of the United States and be applauded for it, but if Fox News host Laura Ingraham suggests that the athlete focus on basketball instead of hurling nasty political rhetoric, it’s tantamount to a hate crime. That was the message that ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning sent on Monday.
The media rarely complain about deficit spending when liberals are at the helm, doling out taxpayer dollars like candy from a parade float. But once Republicans are in control, journalists can’t wait to complain.
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
Just imagine a world where seemingly everything bad is President Trump’s fault. For Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer, that seems to be the world he inhabits. In his column for Friday’s print edition, Brewer blamed “our most profane, word-abusing leader” and President for three screw-ups by NBC guest host Katie Couric, former Asia expert Joshua Cooper Ramo, and Alpine skiing commentator Bodie Miller.
Left wing radio host Thom Hartmann, as those familiar with his rants are aware, has long railed against Republicans as hellbent on dismantling not just the welfare state provisions of Lyndon Johnson's so-called Great Society, most specifically Medicare, but also the core provisions of Roosevelt's New Deal, with Social Security topping the list.
Did you know that the Russian trolling during the 2016 election was so horrible and transformative that it compares to...the attack upon Pearl Harbor? While you chuckle over that observation, keep in mind that the absurd comparison was made by Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post. Of course, the reason why she went so far over the edge was in order to attack President Donald Trump for his reaction to the report by Robert Mueller on Friday that there was no collusion by the Russians with any Americans and the statement by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that the Russians had no impact upon our eletion.
CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday devoted 11 minutes to potential presidential candidate Oprah Winfrey’s conversation with voters in the swing state Michigan. Winfrey’s questions included pressing these selected Americans on Donald Trump’s mental fitness as well as accusations of sexual abuse against the President.
Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson is going on another Nineties Revisionism Tour of the Hill-Thomas debates in New York magazine, calling for Clarence Thomas to be impeached over unproven sexual harassment allegations. Here's how you may quickly evaluate whether Abramson is in any way qualified to judge the character of public officials, as opposed to just carrying water for the Left: A Nexis search of The New York Times over the last 20 years for "Jill Abramson" and "Juanita Broaddrick" turned up ZERO entries.
