After melting down Monday, View co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin were still refusing to admit that Mueller found no collusion, on Tuesday’s show. A shell shocked Behar expressed confusion that the findings didn’t turn out how she had hoped, while Hostin moved the goalposts, arguing that Trump was an illegitimate president even if he wasn’t guilty of collusion.
Journalists lecture that Trump never admits he’s wrong, but when you’re invested in the Trump-the-traitor conspiracy theory, you cannot admit they overreached. Take Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan, who refused to budge on the media’s partisan aggression. The online headline was "Serious journalists should be proud of — not bullied over — their Russia reporting."
In the wake of the terrible terror attack in New Zealand that left several dead, tech companies are looking at censoring more content as a response. Microsoft President Brad Smith wrote a blog post on March 24 that called for a stronger approach to how tech companies deal with content they disagreed with on their platforms.
Appearing on Fox News Monday evening, prominent attorney and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz touted the fact that he had “been right from day one” in his skepticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump. He also revealed that his routine criticism of the Russia probe caused him to “banned” from CNN.
After ex-Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested by the FBI for extortion and fraud, the hosts of the View reacted to it on Tuesday’s show. Co-host Joy Behar, who had previously lauded the celebrity lawyer for “saving the country,” admitted she was heartbroken over Avenatti’s fall from grace.
New York Times columnist David Brooks and Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi are not supporters of Donald Trump, but they both have been fierce critics of the media's coverage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing the President of Russian collusion. That criticism earned both earned the ire of MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday.
With the Mueller report out and the top-line conclusions (no “collusion,” no obstruction of justice) thoroughly chewed over, the New York Times is clearly disappointed. A “live update” featured these petulant subheads, blaming the Republicans for taking political advantage of Trump’s vindication: “Trump immediately attacks ‘the other side.’ "“Minutes after the details are released, Republicans say it’s time to move on." And the paper’s former Washington bureau chief David Leonhardt bashed Attorney General Barr to pressure him to release the full report or else be condemned as Trump’s lackey.
MRC founder and president Brent Bozell appeared on Monday's Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream to discuss the end of Robert Mueller's investigation into the notion that President Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 campaign. "If the media truly were patriotic, they would be celebrating the vindication of their president, pure and simple."
Trump spikes the football, er, puck, while lefty journos still have collusion on the brain.
Americans who expected any sort of real humility from the late night hosts in the wake of the Mueller report clearing Donald Trump were in for disappointment on Monday. Instead, the liberal comedians lashed out in disappointment and anger. Late Show host Stephen Colbert spat, “This weekend, we got some troubling news. Our president is not a Russian asset. Now, it just feels strange to say. Now, I say ‘troubling news’ because if Trump isn't working with the Russians, then what the hell is wrong with him?”
Many in the media remain in denial about the Mueller report findings, as they’ve collectively screamed “Nothing is over, until we decide it is!” From clinging to ongoing Democratic investigations to spouting conspiracy theories about a cover-up, liberal journalists and hosts have spent the last few days refusing to accept there was nothing to their precious “Russian Collusion” dreams. The following are the 10 worst examples of liberals in denial as they curse the Mueller Report conclusions:
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough makes an angry, ranting defense of the liberal media's coverage of the Mueller probe and alleged Russian collusion. He calls critics of the MSM "corrupt" and says they should be "ashamed."
In the wake of the announcement on Sunday that Robert Mueller “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia,” many in the news media are visibly upset with the Special Counsel for not being more aggressively anti-Trump. On Monday’s New Day, for example, CNN legal analyst Laura Coates exclaimed that it was “really atrocious” that Mueller refused to make a legal conclusion about whether the President had committed obstruction of justice, while over on NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted: “Is that a cop out? Isn’t this his job?”
Not only has the Mueller Investigation consumed the news media the last two years, its reach has also extended into entertainment television. Up until Friday, Hollywood celebrities were professing their love for Robert Mueller, so sure were they that the special prosecutor would find the evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians that would finally get him impeached.
Despite the efforts of some people in the “mainstream media” to downplay the information in Robert Mueller’s report that exonerates President Trump of collusion with Russia, at least one person has stepped in to point out the overwhelming bias on the issue over the past two years. While a guest on the America’s Newsroom program on Monday morning, veteran Fox News analyst Brit Hume hammered media coverage of the investigation, which he called not only “bad reporting,” but also “the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime.”
