During a live edition of the Late Show following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate, host Stephen Colbert applauded the candidates for ignoring moderator and CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell throughout much of the raucous event. He also ironically warned that “you can’t listen to a TV person.”
The liberal billionaire owner of Bloomberg News has spent less than one percent of his total net worth and has still topped a half-billion dollars in spending in an attempt to buy his way into the White House. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has now spent an enormous $509,512,884 on “all media types,” according to Advertising Analytics Feb. 24.
CBS on Tuesday night brought on a post-debate analyst who cheered the Democratic Party “we all love so much.” Though Elaine Quijano identified Antjuan Seawright as “a CBS news political contributor and Democratic strategist,” it should be clear that he REALLY likes the Democratic Party. Talking to Elizabeth Warren, he fretted, “Senator, there is a graveyard concern about possible down-ballot carnage if we nominate the wrong person in this party... we all love so much. And the number one rule I learned in politics: You cannot govern if you do not win.”
Toward the end of her Tuesday show on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell decided to echo Bernie Sanders and praise the state of communist Cuba, that "there's a lot of great things to say" about communist rule. After that, she questioned Michael Bloomberg's "really snarky tweets jumping on Sanders" for his fondness for Fidel Castro. She was more offended by that than Bernie's actual embrace of the dictator.
The New York Times blames President Trump for everything, including the nasty and personally insulting tone of the Democratic primary race. Trump was blamed no less than four times in Trip Gabriel's story ostensibly about divided Democrats: “A Sign of the Times? The Democratic Primary Has Become a Free-for-All.” The text box expressed who was really at fault: “A level of personal animus that was rare before the Trump era.”
Joe Scarborough caught a lot of flak from the left earlier this week for suggesting that Elizabeth Warren drop out of the race. Just wait till the lefties get hold of what Scarborough & Co. said this morning about Warren's sustained attacks on Mike Bloomberg during last night's debate. The panel variously described Liz's arrows [you should excuse the expression] against poor Bloomie as "extreme, uncomfortable, bizarre, absurd."
In another High Noon showdown, two more ESPN lefties bit the "bullet." Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre and their left-wing shtick will get till the end of March and then their High Noon program will be designated for the television version of Boot Hill. Low and declining rating are listed as the cause of High Noon's impending death, according to ESPN.
For the second time, tech companies Apple and TikTok have declined to testify -- this time at a March 4 Senate hearing. “This is a troubling pattern,” wrote Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) on Twitter. “What are they hiding? Don’t they think these questions matter--and deserve answers?” The Washington Post wrote that Apple did not respond to any comment. TikTok, a Chinese video-sharing platform, responded that it would send someone to appear, just not next week. The hearing, announced by Hawley’s office, will be called, “Dangerous Partners: Big Tech & Beijing.”
In something reminiscent of someone listing off glorifying titles for characters from Game of Thrones, CNN’s post-debate panel of liberals on Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday marveled at how Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) conducted himself, even while digging himself into a hole by tripling down on his support for communist dictator Fidel Castro.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
It’s sweeps week for the networks and the February 25 episode of NBC’s New Amsterdam certainly included an unusual storyline. What began as a therapy session for a young couple turned into a case of incest.
Arguably, the biggest takeaway from the Democratic debate on Tuesday was that CBS News didn’t know how to moderate. CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and This Morning co-host Gayle King had almost no control as the debate would often descend into a cacophony of shrieking candidates. Their incompetence was so blatant that the panel on CNN’s AC360 couldn’t help but periodically mock the spectacle. Including one who playfully suggested they “all talk over each other.”
MSNBC was a better mood following Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, expressing hope going forward because former Vice President Joe Biden “looked presidential,” “had his best night,” “had his act together,” and came across as “substantive.” Further, the panel seemed giddy at the fact that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finally faced more than an occasional jab and some boo’s, making for what they deemed not exactly his strongest performance.
This may be the last season of The Conners, but the show appears determined to go out with a liberal bang and insert as much of their liberal agenda as they can fit in before the show officially ends. On Tuesday’s episode, “Bad Dads and Grads,” the writers managed to put in a plug for Planned Parenthood and promote Hollywood’s latest cause de jour- throuples.
CBS’s Democratic debate on Tuesday was a confusing, tumultuous mess with the candidates repeatedly screaming over each other and co-moderators Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell seemingly unable to keep the event from devolving into chaos. Yet, the moderators deserve some credit for occasionally and surprisingly asking a few tough questions. Here’s the questions you might not have expected (and the one you definitely did).
