The economy may look good now, but hold off on the “confetti,” says left-wing Salon. While some people look for silver linings, Salon went in search of economic storm clouds on Aug. 12. It’s headline proclaimed, “The end really is near: a play-by-play of the coming economic collapse.” It also found an economist rooting for a downturn, to get rid of the Trump administration.
On Tuesday, Twitter announced vague plans to crack down on accounts that have attempted to evade Twitter suspensions by creating new accounts. In a tweet posted by Twitter Safety, the company said, “This week, we are suspending accounts for attempting to evade an account suspension. These accounts were previously suspended for abusive behavior or evading a previous suspension, and are not allowed to continue using Twitter.”
Just a day after rationalizing the leftist violence by Antifa against police, bystanders, and the press as some twisted form of greater “morality,” CNN host Chris Cuomo closed out PrimeTime by condemning and scolding the President for using coarse language against his opponents. And at the same time, suggested the President was acting worse than a child and like a drunk at the bar.
On Monday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, host Brian Williams devoted a couple of minutes to hyping the cases of two Republican publican figures who have recently been publicly excoriated by liberal family members. After noting reports of families being "torn apart" by political disputes in recent years, Williams brought up Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte coming under criticism by his son on Twitter.
As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
NBC “News” is perfectly demonstrating why the American people distrust the media’s professed belief in facts, or its supposed approach of holding a story until they have enough documented evidence. The latest shameless exhibit? Championing former Apprentice star and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman’s new “tell all” book claiming Donald Trump is a racist and a bigot. She claims that she has heard a tape recording (which she did not produce) that Trump said the “N-word” on the set of his NBC reality show.
With just a couple of hours until the polls closed in Tuesday's Minnesota primaries, liberal broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored the domestic violence accusations swirling around Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, who was running for the Democratic Party’s nomination for state attorney general. Since the allegations broke late Saturday night, only CBS had dedicated any airtime to the charges.
At 7 feet, 4 inches tall, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar can certainly tell a tall tale. Writing on the Hollywood Reporter site, he makes the incredible claim that the national anthem is the equivalent of the feel-good songs slaves were forced to sing to drown out their oppression.
During the ongoing fallout over Omarosa Manigault Newman’s attention-seeking book tour, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson slammed the President for calling the author a “dog” in a tweet and went so far as to accuse Trump of using “KKK language” in his attacks. Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Dyson accused Trump of “evoking an entire history of assault against black people with dehumanizing language” while responding to the claims made by the author of Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
CNN’s Twitter account used an old liberal standby, “seize,” to denigrate Trump’s (factual) statement about the Tuesday morning terror attack in London: "President Donald Trump seizes on what he calls a 'terrorist attack' in London, even though the incident is still in the early stages of investigation." CNN's tweet linked to Jennfier Hansler’s equally silly story. Never mind that both the Associated Press and London's mayor had tweeted out similar statements earlier.
Despite CNN en Español’s anchor Juan Carlos López affirmation that the ban of conversion therapy in England was a controversial issue, viewers of Directo USA were treated to one sole point of view on the matter, that of Dr. Elmer Huerta, a hematologist based in Washington, D.C., who hailed the country’s decision to disallow individuals from receiving the therapy.
PBS host Christiane Amanpour appeared puzzled as to why NBC spiked Ronan Farrow’s investigation into powerful Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Discussing the disgraced Democratic donor on Monday, Amanpour asked the journalist: “Why do you think the media entities [spiked the story]? Our DNA is to be investigative. What was it about the media that wanted you not to tell these stories?”
On Tuesday's New Day show, the latest round of Trump bashing included giving a forum to the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller to denounce his nephew as an "immigration hypocrite" for supporting enforcing immigration law and pushing for reforms. The uncle in question, David Glosser, who published an op-ed in Politico, suggested that the refusal to accept immigrants was tantamount to a "war crime."
MSNBC host Chris Matthews could barely contain his excitement as he interviewed Omarosa Manigault Newman, former Trump White House staffer, during Monday night’s edition of Hardball. Newman, the author of a new book called Unhinged, received the red carpet treatment as Matthews effectively gave a ten-minute long advertisement for her book; which paints a dystopian picture of the Trump administration and President Trump himself.
Taking to Twitter Tuesday morning, NBC’s Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd lost it over anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok being fired and President Trump praising the dismissal. Ranting that the president’s criticism of Strzok was “extraordinary and un-democratic,” Todd feared that other “civil servants” would be intimidated by the supposed effort to “character assassinate.”
