Wednesday was quite the day for the feckless CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta as he had his clock cleaned by White House policy adviser Stephen Miller over immigration. CNN gave Acosta hourly opportunities to change the narrative, but they did quite the opposite by only reinforcing Acosta’s derisory behavior masquerading as moralism.
It wouldn’t be shocking for a television network known for programming gems like Jackass, Catfish, Teen Mom and The Real World, to lack perspective on serious matters — or to lack serious reporting.
At the White House on Wednesday the President rolled out a new legislative proposal to reform the current legal immigration system by having it focused on skilled labor and other merits. And as would be expected, the liberal media were foaming at the mouth over the new policy. Their disgust was obvious during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News, where they smeared the move and touted irate outbursts from CNN’s Jim Acosta.
As part of the ongoing debate about the future of ObamaCare, Mick Mulvaney -- director of the Office of Management and Budget in the federal government -- was a guest on CNN's New Day Wednesday morning, when he disagreed with co-host Chris Cuomo on various aspects of what is also called the Affordable Care Act.
Talk about a bad day to be a member of the liberal media. Licking their wounds from White House official Stephen Miller sparing with the press corps on Wednesday, MSNBC’s Deadline: White House denounced Miller as the kid who probably got bullied in school while his words were filled with “xenophobia” and nothing but “white identity politics.”
MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox Business, Wednesday, to discuss just what Donald Trump might do to go around the biased, liberal press. Bozell zinged, “There is not a thing the man can do for which he will get credit, nothing. Here is a man who could, Donald Trump could find the cure for cancer tomorrow and CBS would report about all a the doctors have been put out of work!”
After all three broadcast networks fretted Wednesday morning over the Justice Department taking steps to challenge Affirmative Action policies that may discriminate against white students, on her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show, anchor Andrea Mitchell worried the move had the “potential to reopen long decided cases of Affirmative Action, which is alarming civil rights groups and academic institutions across the country.”
White House adviser Stephen Miller absolutely eviscerated the “cosmopolitan bias” of CNN journalist Jim Acosta, slamming his immigration claims as “ignorant.” Appearing at a briefing on Donald Trump’s new merit-based immigration policy, Acosta began by lecturing, “What you're proposing, or what the President is proposing, does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration.”
Prior to his epic thrashing of CNN’s Jim Acosta on Wednesday, White House policy adviser Stephen Miller threw down with self-described liberal hack New York Times correspondent Glenn Thrush over the administration’s new immigration proposals through the proposed RAISE Act.
As Al Gore seeks once more to establish his bona fide climate change credentials, other liberals have begun seeking solutions of their own on the issue. In the Atlantic, senior editor James Hamblin proposed his own rather unique solution to the dillenia. Instead of eating beef, people ought to switch to a diet composed of the magical fruit otherwise known as beans. Citing the research of an environmental nutrition team from the University of Oregon, Hamblin goes on to explain at length how if people were to substitute beans for beef that “eco-anxiety” and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced considerably. Desperate times call for desperate measures it appears as Hamblin ominously writes, “The beans for beef scenario is, it seems, upon us.”
As socialist Venezuela implodes, the media has been strangely silent on the matter. But, the lack of coverage isn't so strange considering the media's love for Venezuela's former socialist dictator Hugo Chavez and his leftist ideology. As Ben Shapiro at The Daily Wire points out, the media swooned over Chavez.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor Rick Stengel claimed that there has been an "epidemic" of "excessive police violence" and "targeted racism" from the last few years during a discussion of President Donald Trump's recent comments joking about treating criminals roughly.
After arguing students should be denied college admission based off of their race, the women at The View went on to argue students should be denied their Second Amendment rights. The rants were in response to a 2016 law passed in Texas that allows licensed gun owning students to conceal carry on campus. The law went into effect on community college campuses this week in the state. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila delivered a reasoned and fact-based argument in favor of the law, the rest of the panel shut her down and spewed nonsense in order to further their gun control agenda.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin is a regular presence on CNN, often describing how deeply troubled the Trump White House is over Russia or other signs of Trump’s impending political doom. So it’s surprising to see this Toobin article at his other gig, The New Yorker magazine: “Trump’s Real Personnel Victory: More Conservative Judges.” Trump has a personnel victory? Will CNN notice?
The stock markets rose dramatically since President Donald Trump was elected. Just since his inauguration, the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed more than 10 percent and set 31 new closing record highs. The 30th record was set on July 31, 2017, when the Dow closed at 21,891, prompting speculations about the prospect of Dow 22,000. But none of the three broadcast news programs said anything about the new record the night of July 31. Not one word — CBS only supplied an onscreen graphic of the number with no information about it being a record.
