After the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News refused on Wednesday to mention that the U.S. Attorney’s Southern District of New York office was closing its investigation regarding the now-infamous hush money payments, Thursday’s CBS Evening News noticed this legal victory for President Trump, but offered a tinge of disappointment there were no new charges. And similar to how the liberal media tried to make hay with the Mueller Report despite the lack of collusion, CBS tried to do that on a smaller scale with the documents released on the probe.
Oh, the lengths that the liberal media will go to defend their far-left flanks. On Thursday, NBC Nightly News led with the “send her back” chant from a Wednesday night Trump rally that many across the spectrum have condemned, but instead of leaving it there, the controversy was used to defend the rampant anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as merely something that upsets Republicans.
Wednesday night’s Trump rally in Greenville, North Carolina justifiably came under fire from the media when the crowd starting chanting “send her back” in response to President Trump’s criticisms of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a chant Trump later disavowed. The hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe, however, proved their own dispositions were just as bad, if not worse. On Thursday, the show's cast completely melted down over the chant by the crowd. After referring to it as a “Nuremberg Rally,” Joe Scarborough claimed that President Trump wants America to be “ethnically cleansed."
In furious reaction to the president's tweets on Sunday calling for "progressive" Democratic congresswomen who came from other countries to "go back" and change their countries first, many "mainstream" media outlets accused Trump of outright racism. Keith Woods, vice president for newsroom training and diversity with National Public Radio, has a different perspective, asserting that “it is the job of the public, not journalists, to make this type of characterization.”
Elizabeth Warren is trying to portray herself as the serious candidate with a left-wing plan to address the nation's issues. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were joined by CNN correspondent MJ Lee to discuss Warren's Wall Street proposals in a segment that ended with Sciutto stating that the plan was not far-left "whackadoodle."
On Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day continued the nearly week long “President Trump is a racist” media storm. One of the liberal journalist guests on the program went further, smearing all Trump supporters as racists. The hosts turned to Tiffany Cross, the managing editor of The Beat DC, and it was clear that she went on the show with a mission: paint all Trump supporters as bigoted white supremacists.
Wednesday night, MSNBC’s All In continued to milk the ‘”is Trump a racist” debate, this time focusing on the President's remarks at his most recent rally. Host Chris Hayes began by explaining one of the liberal media's most difficult quandaries: “What do you do with a Trump rally?” Well, the answer seemed obvious enough as Hayes and guests proceeded to name-call and tear Trump and his supporters apart.
You know, there are plenty of Econ 101 students who could tell you that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is a bad thing for the U.S. economy. Plenty of waiters and busboys, too. So the counter argument must get away from the facts of the issue and offer something a little more emotionally-charged, like “the racist history of tipping,” in order to push for higher wages in the service industry.
A little more than a week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that “Make America Great Again” means “Make America White Again,” CNN host Chris Cuomo argued that “Make America Great Again” actually means “Make America Hate Again.” Cuomo devoted his closing argument Wednesday night to highlighting how “Trump’s racist message becomes 2020 rally cry,” as the chyron at the bottom of the screen read. Cuomo began by reading Donald Trump’s incendiary tweets about the Democratic “Squad” aloud as they appeared on screen. The most controversial parts were highlighted.
If there is one thing that is sure to end the presidency of Donald Trump, it is a video of him at a party in 1992 surrounded by NFL cheerleaders and having a conversation with Jeffrey Epstein long before anyone knew he was guilty of sex trafficking. On Wednesday, NBC News went through its archives to find a segment from Faith Daniels’ NBC talk show that captured Trump at one of his Mar-a-Lago parties (something common in the ‘80s and ‘90s).
Ross Perot thought he was Batman. Donald Trump and Tom Steyer do too, according to Sam Thielman, writing on NBC’s “Think” website. I don’t know. Perot (RIP) was a kind of a weird little guy, and Trump’s issues will keep psychologists (real ones, not Brian Stelter) working for years. Steyer certainly seems to have a green messiah thing going, but I don’t see much Caped Crusader in him.
On July 17th, Fox News interviewed a polyamorous “throuple” consisting of a married couple and their girlfriend. Cathy and Thomas Keen have been together for the past decade and share a 7-year-old son. They also share a 27-year-old girlfriend named Nicole Everett. Nicole and Cathy worked together for a dating app for “open-minded couples” and singles called “Feeld.” The two were friends before Cathy introduced Nicole to her husband.
Are you a political campaigner having a tough time selling your expensive, socialistic plan? Just go on CNN, where (if you’re lucky) an anchor will tell you how you’re doing it wrong. That’s what happened when Democratic-socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ senior campaign advisor Jeff Weaver went on Erin Burnett Outfront on July 17.
The front of Thursday’s New York Times followed up on the unceremonious ouster of Planned Parenthood president Leana Wen, after just eight months on the job leading the country’ largest abortionist, in a fight over the group’s direction during a time of pro-abortion laws under pressure: “Health Provider or an Advocate? Planned Parenthood’s Quandary.” But an “advocate” for what? The headline lacked the word “abortion,” which is certainly the organization’s raison d’etre. The media have spent years laughably insisting Planned Parenthood is more than an abortion megaplex, and now the organization with one move has contradicted all that cozy public relations by firing their president for insufficient focus on abortion.
During her noon ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to the defense of the far-left “squad” members of Congress – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – by falsely claiming that “none of these members of Congress are socialists.” In reality, two of them are members of Democratic Socialists of America while all of them have advocated policies that fit the very definition of socialism.
