Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren has grand ambitions for spending other people’s money. Her latest proposal was (by her own estimation) a $1.25 trillion policy proposal for student loan forgiveness and free college.
CBS News made a $49,950,000 error when it reported that Warren’s reparations plan “would also create some incentives for black students and lower-income families such as a fund with at least $50 million for historically black colleges and universities.”
A CNN New Day panel painted Kamala Harris as the loser in last night's CNN town halls. Three CNN journalists criticized her for not offering "something bold," instead using the "let's have a conversation about that" dodge. Alisyn Camerota got in a zinger at the end, suggesting that if Harris wanted to have a conversation, a town hall just might have been the right place to do it. Ouch!
The New York Times’ hostile coverage of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll proved the paper wouldn’t dare give the Trump administration an easy boost with the non-offensive ritual, the way it did during the Obama administration. The headline in Tuesday’s edition was the giveaway: “Easter Eggs Come With a Side of Politics.” The online headline: “At a White House Tradition, Politics Color Everything but the Easter Eggs."
As the big three networks ignored 2020 Democrat candidate Senator Bernie Sanders arguing that terrorists deserved voting rights during a CNN town hall Monday night, the hosts of the View didn’t ignore it, bringing up the hot topic on Tuesday’s show. Sanders’ comments caused a fierce debate between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, leaving McCain horrified by her co-host’s defense of Sanders’ controversial comments.
Election manipulation is something the media have typically associated with Russians. But one liberal billionaire funnelled 56 times more money into manipulating content to win elections than the Russians.
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders shocked many on Monday night as he lobbied for the restoration of voting rights for the Boston Marathon bomber, as well as those guilty of sexual assault. But you wouldn’t know this if you relied on the network morning shows. ABC, CBS and NBC, despite a combined six hours of available air time on Tuesday, ignored the startling comments, remarks that even baffled liberal CNN host Chris Cuomo.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were united in promoting NBC News reporter Kristen Welker shouting an impeachment question at President Trump during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. A soundbite of the brief exchange was featured on each broadcast, amid coverage worrying about Democrats being divided over the issue.
Outraged about the hundreds of people blown to shreds as they were (in Dem PR-speak) Easter worshipping in Sri Lanka? You might be a member of the “far-right.” So say the Washington Post’s Adam Taylor and Rick Noack. The pair sought to delegitimize anger at the Islamist barbarism by reactions from “far-right” figures in Europe and the U.S.
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is rising in the polls and therefore, is starting to face criticism from fellow Democratic presidential contenders who see him as a threat. While most would say this is only natural, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski expressed deep concern on Tuesday that Buttigieg is now receiving criticism.
On ABC’s This Week Sunday, guest host Martha Raddatz interviewed Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway; specifically focusing on the conclusions of the Mueller report. Raddatz summarized the President’s reaction to the Mueller report for Conway: “the President says there’s total vindication. Complete exoneration. No collusion. No obstruction.” Not surprisingly, Raddatz wanted to skip right over the “no collusion” part and focus on obstruction.
Joe Biden is expected to jump into the presidential race on Wednesday, but he enters a Democratic nomination fight with a lot of baggage. Most recently the former Vice President has had to deal with complaints about his history of overly-grabby behavior with women, but those stories have overshadowed another famous flaw – his propensity for embarrassing gaffes.
Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter opened the show Sunday by talking about how the Mueller report revealed “a White House of lies, lies like nothing this nation has ever seen before.” Stelter proceeded to give a lecture about “morality,” as he and his guests tried to make the argument that the immoral behavior outlined in the Mueller report makes President Trump unfit to hold office.
Monday night was truly a marathon for CNN as they aired five back-to-back town halls with Democratic 2020 candidates. Yet, despite it being only one day after the massive coordinated terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by Islamic extremists that mainly targeted Christians with almost 300 dead and 500 injured, CNN offered zero questions about anti-Christian bigotry. Instead, CNN asked those candidates eight combined questions on impeaching President Trump.
Monday night, CBS’s new comedy, The Neighborhood, closed out its first season with a blunt reminder of their liberal agenda. This time was slightly different, though. In a failed effort to make this episode unique, instead of tackling racism, they tackled...white privilege. Ok, so maybe it wasn't really all that different.
During Sunday evening’s edition of Life, Liberty & Levin, Mark Levin blasted the report released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as demonstrating that “our very republic is at stake” because several vital aspects of our nation have “broken down.” The Fox News Channel host pointed to the separation of powers, the rule of law and the media -- which he also described as an “unfree press” -- as being responsible for the nation having “a mob mentality” because half of the people want to “continue the coup” against President Trump.
