The cast of MSNBC's Morning Joe spent much of Wednesday's show arguing that it would be foolish for Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist, along with most of the panelists, concurred that Democrats would be wise to focus on winning in 2020.
Don’t write an introduction to a report before you get the actual document or you might be disappointed. (If you’re part of the liberal media that is.) On Wednesday, the Washington Post released a print edition of the Mueller Report, complete with “introduction and analysis by reporters.” The cover blurbs the “long-awaited text.” The lack of collusion and no charges of obstruction may be a disappointment, but Post writers Rasalind S. Helderman and Matt Zapotosky kept their apocalyptic tone.
Wednesday on The View, co-host Joy Behar had an interesting theory on why Democrats could lose the upcoming 2020 presidential election. To guest Kirsten Gillibrand she worried that her party would lose to Trump in 2020, because Democrats didn’t “play dirty” like Republicans did. Says who?
In a mixed-up, apples-to-oranges ‘news’ report, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos attempted to gainsay President Trump’s longstanding concern about the high cost of illegal immigration by citing earnings and tax revenues from all immigrants, both those who are lawfully present in the United States and those who are not.
Politico's "Morning Media" newsletter on Wednesday touted a "big comeback" for MSNBC host Brian Williams. Based on what? Reporters Daniel Lippman and Paul Volpe begin simply by noting he anchored live Mueller Report coverage with Nicolle Wallace and beat CNN (as if that's much of an achievement), but not Fox. The disgraced NBC anchor wins his 11 pm time slot, but that might be in part because Fox News viewers have retired for the evening.
During an interview with Melinda Gates, wife of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle pushed the idea of a “wealth tax” and wondered if it was time to “revisit capitalism.” Amid advocating the left-wing policies, Ruhle largely dismissed the role of private philanthropy in addressing societal problems.
One way to fight Big Tech tyranny might be a new Texas bill that aims to stop companies from discriminating against conservative viewpoints. The bill by Republican state Sen. Bryan Hughes would prevent Big Tech companies from censoring conservative viewpoints online. “Senate Bill 2373 tries to prevent those companies that control these new public spaces, this new public square, from picking winners and losers based on content,” Hughes said at a committee meeting.
Did you know that viewers of Fox News had their minds shaped that the Mueller Report was good news for President Trump. That is the premise of Aaron Rupar at the liberal website Vox. According to Rupar, Fox News fans would have been unable to determine that fact if left to their own devices. No, they needed to be be convinced of that by the network's "pro-Trump spin."
The liberal narrative is that President Donald Trump cannot accomplish anything in office. So when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey met with Trump April 23, the general consensus from the media and various tech officials was that “we are even more fucked then we were the day before,” in the words of journalist James Kosur.
The liberal media gave Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar a pass yet again this week after she was criticized for making more offensive, unpatriotic comments. In a resurfaced 2017 tweet that went viral Monday, Omar attacked American troops who died in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (told in the book/movie “Black Hawk Down,”) as killers. One of the few liberal media outlets to actually talk about the backlash Omar received was Newsweek, and they only did so to defend her outrageous comments.
On the eve of Joe Biden's expected announcement of his candidacy, Morning Joe offered a very downbeat take on his prospects. Joe Scarborough said, " I have yet to talk to a Democratic activist or a Democratic fundraiser who is excited about Joe Biden getting in the race . . . almost every Democrat, to a person, that I have spoken with is concerned that this is going to end badly for Joe Biden, and that he should not get into the race."
PBS’s FRONTLINE episode “The Abortion Divide,” an update of a piece by Mark Obenhaus that examined abortion politics in Pennsylvania in 1983, aired on April 23. The film bounced back and forth between the 1980s and today, ranging from the inner city of Philadelphia to the suburbs and recording five separate abortion procedures. But one crucial topic was conspicuously missing: the crimes of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
CW’s alien series Roswell, New Mexico has finally come to an end. With its Trump jabs, obvious politicization of illegal immigrants, and general awfulness, the show is a low point even for a channel with woke witches and Supergirl. The finale decided to immortalize the mess with a ham-handed condemnation of gun laws.
During his appearance on Tuesday’s Cuomo Prime Time, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey didn’t shy away from calling Chris Cuomo out for “misleading a lot of people” when it came to the findings of the special counsel investigation. In a brilliant display of schooling the so-called “Facts First” network, Mukasey went toe-to-toe with blowhard host and outclassed him at every turn.
The Mueller Report is out, and Donald Trump’s summary got it right: “no collusion, no obstruction.” Mueller could also have labeled him the next iteration of St. Teresa but it still wouldn’t have made a lick of difference. The left wants him impeached -- period.
