As the national Spanish-language news networks ramp up their efforts to persuade their viewers to vote for those candidates that are aligned with their own business interests -chief among them, ensuring an unfailing audience, and thus, advertising dollars via open borders - they become more brazen at blurring the line between information and propaganda.
President Donald Trump’s economy continues to fly in the face of the liberal media and their recession hype.
MSNBC weekend anchor Alicia Menendez, daughter of Democrat Senator Bob Menendez, appeared on The View Friday to plug her new book about sexism, called The Likeability Trap. She fit right in at the table, as the hosts have been cheering Elizabeth Warren for standing up to “sexist” Bernie Sanders, all week. The hosts used the book’s theme to rehash their complaints about how America doesn’t like female candidates, both in 2016 and 2020.
At the Media Research Center, we know a thing or two about singling out liberal bias in the press. Therefore, it's always refreshing when a sitting member of Congress corroborates the existence of such bias. In this spirit, Senator Martha McSally appeared on Thursday’s Ingraham Angle to discuss her recent encounter with CNN reporter Manu Raju.
Eminem surprise-released a new album, Music To Be Murdered By, early Friday morning, accompanied by a violent music video depicting the Las Vegas mass shooting and ending with a pro-gun control message. The video is for the song “Darkness” and it starts out seemingly describing Eminem’s nerves before a concert before you realize he’s rapping from the perspective of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooter. The final verse lyrics read:
The same media elites are are eternally suspicious of all Trump business activities -- a fair topic for investigation -- have generally demonstrated a dramatic incuriosity about the Barack and Michelle Obama wealth boom. Whatever coverage bubbles up comes with a You-Go-Guys tone. They don't care if they're raking in hundreds of millions of dollars, and didn't care to cover them buying a $12 million mansion on Martha's Vineyard. Vanity Fair took a look at the new "super rich."
The day after the Impeachment articles were “solemnly” marched to the Senate building, you’d be expecting joy to reverberate through social media from celeb lefties duped by Pelosi’s charade, however the feeling was more akin to fatigue and frustration than joy.
On Thursday and Friday, all three broadcast networks eagerly joined Virginia Democrats in attempting to smear gun rights advocates in the commonwealth as violent, racist terrorists who were plotting “a rerun of the deadly Charlottesville protests.” Reporters seized on Governor Ralph Northam declaring a “state of emergency” ahead of a pro-Second Amendment rally at the statehouse in Richmond.
On Thursday morning, Fox and Friends made time for the kind of story that is a reminder of how important it is to enforce immigration laws and deport aliens who commit serious crimes rather than allow liberal sanctuary cities to cover for them.
Facebook has taken some free speech stances that drew heavy criticism from fellow Big Tech companies, liberal commentators, and now the Democratic primary frontrunner. Former vice-president Joe Biden told The New York Times editorial board “that Section 230 should be revoked, immediately” for Big Tech companies. The Times called that provision “pretty foundational” to the internet. Biden spoke with The Times editorial board as it tried to determine which candidate to endorse as an organization. In the 80-minute discussion, Biden hammered Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and threatened to repeal the legislation that was intended to protect free speech on the internet.
If there’s one thing CBS This Morning journalists have been worried about during the 2020 Democratic primaries, it’s whether the various candidates are liberal enough. That trend continued on Friday as co-host Tony Dokoupil pressed Amy Klobuchar on whether she’s “progressive” enough for today’s Democratic voters. He also demanded the senator endorse a wealth tax. After noting that socialist Bernie Sanders is far to the left, Dokoupil lectured, “I was looking at a report just this morning that said that the average family, the typical family is poorer today than they were back in 2000. Life expectancy in this country is falling.” He worried:
Consumer confidence is the highest its been in nearly 20 years. And yet, a recent MRC analysis showed that liberal media networks only gave President Donald Trump’s economy less than one percent coverage on their evening newscasts over a period of 100 days.
The only thing the media hates more than a Democrat getting humiliated by the right is when the media gets humiliated by the right. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) sparked a media meltdown Thursday morning after calling CNN reporter Manu Raju a “liberal hack.” That afternoon, The Washington Post rushed to Raju’s rescue with an overwrought opinion piece attacking McSally, saying her “outburst” was evidence that Republicans wouldn’t conduct a fair impeachment trial.
Wednesday’s signed lead editorial by Mara Gay of the New York Times editorial board attacked a conservative news rival the New York Post while demading that New York Democrats to buck up on the newly instigated "bail reform," despite the street violence that has already resulted from the controversial policy: “Democrats Run From Their Own Shadows.” Gay flirted with blaming victims of violent crime for the movement, in this case Hasidic and Orthodox Jews as well as its more conservative tabloid rival the New York Post.
After the Democrats' press conference on Wednesday where they revealed their managers for the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined CNN Newsroom co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto to talk about the big takeaway from this super serious moment in American history: that Republicans are a bunch of white men and Democrats aren't.
