On Wednesday, a federal judge out of the Southern District of New York ruled that President Trump’s blocking of people on Twitter somehow violated the First Amendment and declared Trump’s account was a public forum. Of course, the liberal media that has condemned the President’s use of the social media platform saw it as a victory and rejoiced. Both CBS and NBC made sure to touch on it during their evening broadcasts.
There's no crying in baseball and no more kneeling in football! Today's news that the NFL will disallow on-field player protests during the national anthem is drawing fiery responses from some in the media, none more so than USA Today's Dave Birkett. His comments that the league's decision smells of "a military state" rank No. 1 on our list of the most unhinged media reactions.
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd led his show's panel in fretting over the NFL decision to bar players from refusing to stand during the national anthem, and seemed open to discontinuing the playing of the anthem at games after New York Times Washington correspondent Charlie Savage suggested it.
While a guest during Wednesday morning's Fox & Friends, The Federalist's Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway slammed former Director of National Intelligence Director James Clapper by stating that it’s “rarely the case” when the former director of national intelligence under Democratic President Barack Obama tells the truth. Hemingway made the comment when asked about Clapper’s appearance on The View a day earlier, when he said that President Donald Trump “should be happy” that the FBI was spying on his 2016 presidential campaign.
During the same interview in which she recalled a supposed off-camera conversation with Donald Trump about his efforts to “discredit” the media, at Monday’s Deadline Club Awards Dinner, 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl also took Democrats to task for assuming “that reporters are on their side” and always expecting positive press coverage.
Wednesday saw the latest edition of CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo throwing down with Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan as the topics du jour featured calls for a second special counsel, Russian collusion, and a Thursday meeting of congressional Republicans having access to some of the most sensitive documents related to the Trump-Russia probe.
At least half of the liberal organizations pushing the “Freedom From Facebook” movement have been funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. One of the other organizations was also founded by controversial Women's March leader Linda Sarsour.
While the networks scrutinize the president’s every word (and tweet), their news programming skipped past his recent comments declaring that “every life is sacred.” On Tuesday evening, President Trump served as the keynote speaker at the annual Campaign for Life Gala hosted by pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List in Washington, D.C.
The latest example of massive media collusion and manipulation to advance the culture of death came in Exit International’s staging, earlier this month, of the death of renowned Australian scientist David Goodall in Switzerland. In news coverage offered by major U.S. Spanish-language media outlets, for example, there was no semblance of fair or balanced reporting on the controversy surrounding the push for assisted suicide, and instead all the hallmarks of a carefully orchestrated campaign to favorably shape public opinion on the matter.
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes on Wednesday appeared on the Fox Business Network to showcase the hypocrisy of journalists in reacting to a secret informant within the 2016 Trump campaign. Talking to host Neil Cavuto, Noyes explained: “These new stories about an informant talking to Trump people and reporting back to the FBI what they said, that would have been a big story if it had happened to the Obama team under say, a Republican administration, the Bush administration.”
It’s ironic to watch people who advocate for women’s rights and pro-abortion policies stand by men who have been accused of sexual harassment.
Comedian Michelle Wolf from The Daily Show responded "I don't care" when asked by Meghan McCain on The View on Wednesday if her "comedy" appearance at the White House Correspondents Association on April 28 caused the reporters' organization to stop hiring a comedian for their annual dinner.The rest of the View crew surrounded Wolf with encouragement and support, and McCain was smiling through the question.
Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “partisan” and “inept prosecutor,” and a “peeping Tom.”
All three network morning shows on Wednesday celebrated “history being made” and “progress” after female Democratic candidates won primaries in several states on Tuesday. The broadcasts were particularly enthralled by African American state legislator Stacey Abrams winning Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and openly gay former sheriff Lupe Valdez winning the same contest in the state of Texas.
Journalists are freaking out over an alleged admission by Donald Trump that he attacks the press simply to “discredit” reporters and so that “no one will believe you.” CBS This Morning, CNN, ABC’s The View and MSNBC have all fretted over the quote.
