Deep breaths, people. Leading off Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, moderator Chuck Todd let loose on some hyperbole and self-righteous speculation that America is amidst a “constitutional crisis” and “fatal” attack on “the rule of law” caused by Republicans demanding an investigation into alleged spying of the Trump campaign in the early stages of the Russia probe.
During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough had a surprising recommendation for viewers: “If you don't want to hear the truth, you can change the channel!” Scarborough made the remark after fiancé and fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski finished an interview with anti-Trump Republican Max Boot, who noted in an opinion column from the Washington Post “the five political norms that President Trump violated in just the past week.”
Despite the fact that no Democrat has won statewide in Texas since 1994, Time magazine on Tuesday devoted over 1600 words to the “handsome” Beto O’Rourke, the liberal hope for Democrats in Texas. O’Rourke is challenging the “dogmatic conservative,” incumbent Senator Ted Cruz.
Appearing on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday to promote his new book on presidential impeachment, left-wing Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe warned Democrats against being too quick to call for President Trump’s impeachment. He argued that they should wait for “overwhelming” bipartisan consensus on the issue and proclaimed: “If you’re going to shoot him, you’ve got to shoot to kill.”
Thank goodness for Colin Kaepernick. Without the one-time quarterback and full-time jerk out filing laughable collusion suits and steadfastly maintaining that he is entitled to play in the NFL, sports hacks like USA Today’s Jarrett Bell might have to write about sports.
Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. MSNBC host Chris Matthews was frustrated that “reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box” compared to gun-rights voters and was frustrated that the NRA seemed to be “immune to justice.” Celebrities also engaged in the demonization of gun-rights supporters. The following is a collection (so far) of the ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters in the wake of the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting.
On Friday, the Daily Beast's Michael Daly posted: "The All-American Ritual of a School Shooting, This Time in Santa Fe." In it, he failed to follow through on a promise to draw a comparison between the then-imminent "rituals" involved in British royal weddings" and Friday's school shooting in Texas.
On Tuesday’s edition of The View, the liberals were upset that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would tweet about a “war against women in the Trump administration.” Joy Behar tried to turn that into a Planned Parenthood argument, and Meghan McCain lost patience with that: “The idea that Planned Parenthood is the number one women’s issue in America, all women...it’s false and I’m sick of this!”
Did you notice an awful lot of gay characters in movies during 2017? If so, you’re an ignorant bigot. According to the analysts at GLAAD, all major Hollywood studios performed poorly in terms of forwarding the gay agenda on the big screen. Oh sure, there were two movies entirely dedicated to gay themes, but “Love, Simon” and “Call Me By Your Name” are not enough.
During Monday’s edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, reporter Mariana Atencio interviewed some members of the Santa Fe High School baseball team, including two who got shot during Friday’s mass shooting that killed ten people. Atencio repeatedly tried to get them to become gun control warriors like many of the teens who survived the recent mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The aggressive, biased coverage of The New York Times against Donald Trump is so obvious that even the liberal journalists at CBS noticed it. On Tuesday, CBS This Morning hosts talked to Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Washington Bureau Chief Elisabeth Bumiller about their appearance in the new Showtime series The Fourth Estate.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were gleeful over the news that Barack and Michelle Obama had signed a deal with Netflix to create original content for the online streaming service. Hosts happily touted “a lot of people very excited” about the announcement and cheered that the former president and first lady “got paid,” with the agreement rumored to be worth tens of millions of dollars. Missing from much of the adulation, except for a brief mention on NBC, was the fact that the Netflix executive in charge of content was a major Obama campaign donor.
California is king when it comes to environmental regulations, but the latest decision to mandate solar panels comes at a high price. For homeowners.
Those costs of freedom of choice and almost $10,000 higher construction expenses per home didn’t matter much to California’s proponents of solar panels or the liberal media which downplayed costs and critics when they mentioned them at all.
Yahoo! Sports and the NHL's Nashville Predators are not sticking to sports or political neutrality. The pro hockey team has publicly endorsed a Democrat candidate for mayor in Nashville, and that clapping sound you hear comes from Yahoo! Sports' Jay Busbee, who endorsed the team for doing so—while other media are criticizing the team's partisanship.
Following a 60 Minutes segment that portrayed Google as a monopolistic power, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he hopes the U.S. Department of Justice “takes a serious look” at the power wielded by tech giants.
