Roughly halfway through the second hour of CNN’s Tuesday night Democratic presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper dove into the obligatory questions about enacting strict and intrusive gun control measures. This time, nearly all the questions pertained to probing the candidates on their support for mandatory gun confiscation. And if not, why not?
Did CNN offer an assist to far-left Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer on Tuesday? During the presidential debate, a CNN graphic described Steyer with the somewhat toxic description of “former hedge fund manager.” It’s not a popular term. For example, the website Efinancialcareers offered this headline: “Why only the worst people tend to work for new hedge funds.” So, it’s interesting that for the rest of the debate the graphic for Steyer was changed to “businessman.” Here’s the before and after graphics:
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took a giant whack at the liberal media during Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic debate, taking issue with debate partners CNN and The New York Times as being overly hostile due to her foreign policy views. And to make things even more interesting, she specifically slammed CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers (without naming him).
CNN devoted the first 20 minutes of the 2020 Democratic primary debate to impeachment and actually asked the candidates some tough questions on whether the process makes any sense. Yet, moderator Anderson Cooper made sure to exonerate the Bidens, telling Joe Biden that your son has been “falsely accused” and there’s “no evidence” of any wrongdoing. Cooper began by repeating Democratic talking points.
When John Bolton first became President Trump’s national security advisor back in March of last year, the liberal broadcast networks were sounding their alarms to warn viewers of his “hardline” and “controversial” positions. But on Tuesday, they clung to reports that Bolton described Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani as a “hand grenade” running something like a “drug deal” in Ukraine.
On Monday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour gave liberal actress Jane Fonda a forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming, picking up on the veteran political activist's recent push to hold a weekly protest outside the U.S. Capitol on the issue. The liberal activist railed against the fossil fuel industry, fearmongered about there allegedly being only a decade left in which to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and complained that American "individualism" is a problem.
Univision’s national Monday evening newscast included to what amounted to free promotion for liberal activists pushing for illegal immigration, complete with a closing endorsement from correspondent Lourdes del Río, who all but made a call to action with their contact information.
Since America's colonial days the press has been a target of those who believe journalists have a point of view that shapes their reporting. There have been numerous articles and studies revealing a journalistic predisposition to opinions and subjects that reinforce liberal points of view. Now comes an excellent critique from World Magazine editor Marvin Olasky. His latest book, “Reforming Journalism,” is a philosophical and even theological deconstruction of historic and contemporary media.
There is no greater enigma in late-night television than Bill Maher. Depending on the day, one could get the somewhat rational Maher pleading with the left wing to cut back on their extremist antics or the radical Maher who prays for a recession. On Friday’s Real Time, audience members were witness to the former as Maher lamented with radio host Howard Stern on the crumbling state of the Democratic Party.
A proposed commission to bully online platforms into cracking down harder on speech has civil rights advocates outraged, The Hill reported. At least three bills were discussed, including ones targeting cybersecurity, drones and online platforms. The last bill was the “National Commission on Online Platforms and Homeland Security Act,” which Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) explained by saying:
Sean Hannity had great fun with the first batch of Project Veritas tapes exposing CNN on Monday night. He mocked "Humpty Dumpty" Brian Stelter and said he should be working on a book on his own network, instead of Fox. The first package of clips had some unsurprising takes that haven't been secret -- like CNN boss Jeff Zucker railing against "Fox News conspiracy nonsense" ruining America.
On Monday’s edition of the noontime Inside Politics program on CNN, AP Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace used an odd word to describe Hunter Biden's exploitation of his father's last name to make money in foreign countries like Ukraine and China. She called it “confusing.”
On Tuesday, CBS This Morning noted liberal outrage over reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been conducting meetings with conservative leaders. Surprisingly, co-host and Democratic donor Gayle King was quick to defend the practice, asking, “What’s wrong with that?”
On The View Tuesday, in the absence of co-host Joy Behar, it was Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin’s turns to make ridiculous statements. While discussing Hunter Biden’s disastrous interview on ABC this morning, Hostin tried to make the case that Biden was actually qualified for the lucrative Ukraine gas company position, and it wasn’t a result of his father’s influence.On the other hand, Whoopi argued that Democrats needed to focus on the economy, instead in tonight’s debate, and convince Americans how they’re going to help lower their taxes. Sounds like Whoopi needs to switch parties.
The intolerant left has a long list of things they consider unforgivable sins. One of them includes simply talking and dining with those on the right. Politico published a story Oct. 14, which said that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “has been hosting informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commentators and at least one Republican lawmaker.”
