Since Tuesday, liberal journalists on CNN and MSNBC have been teaming up with elected Democrats to shoot down the notion that their collective obsession with impeaching President Trump slowed the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The biased coverage argued the “talking point” was “dangerous” and predicted that it would not “pick up much traction.”
Yesterday was April Fools’ Day. Looks like a prominent liberal business outlet did not get that memo and fell prey to a major climate change prank. MarketWatch ran a story on April Fools’ Day originally headlined “Google will no longer pay lobbyists that deny climate change, pledges zero emissions by 2025.” The problem? The source for that story came from a parody account, according to a MarketWatch update.
Another network poll is out finding majority support for Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and this time CBS didn’t even manage 10 seconds for the news. Instead, CBS This Morning on Thursday skipped the positive numbers and barely mentioned the survey at all. In the 7am hour, co-host Tony Dokoupil announced, “A CBS News poll out this morning shows about half of Americans, 51 percent of us, believe the outbreak will get worse in the next month. Only 28 percent think it will get better.”
Don’t be fooled. Though Ellen Degeneres may be the pleasant, smiling face of popular daytime talk show Ellen, some of the people calling the shots behind the scenes aren’t quite as jovial and happy-go-lucky as their brand pays them to appear. Though he tries to toe the well-adjusted, normal guy line for the sake of his career, Ellen executive producer Andy Lassner turns into a quaking, rage-filled troll every time President Trump tweets.
While the first three months of 2020 were overloaded with news -- ranging from the impeachment of President Trump to the arrival of the coronavirus outbreak -- the liberal MSNBC “news” channel failed to attract new viewers and matched the same ratings from a year ago. The stagnation in numbers comes in stark contrast to the Fox News Channel, which gained 38 percent during the same period, and even the ratings-challenged CNN, which actually grew its numbers by a surprising 18 percent.
On Thursday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released an open letter to President Donald Trump about the $75 million grant Public Broadcasting (CPB) received in the overall coronavirus bill. Bozell explained just how wasteful that money is and what $75 million could do if put to actually FIGHTING the spread of corona. He declared, “Now more than ever, Americans must pull together in a spirit of unity. Not in the spirit of division that CPB has advocated through its decades of biased programming.”
Liberal media outlets were quick to shill for former President Barack Obama’s recent swipes at President Donald Trump. CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post all pushed liberal spin stories elevating Obama’s tweet, which took two veiled shots at the Trump administration. One alleged the administration’s denial "of warnings of a pandemic." Obama’s other shot bleated about the consequences of “climate denial” over Trump's decision to roll back his auto emission standards.
On Tuesday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, NPR hoste Michel Martin did an interview with Stuart Stevens, one of those GOP strategists who became red-hot Never Trumpers. Stevens insisted "the original sin of the modern Republican party is race," and Martin used that to rip into Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush....inaccurately.
The White House Correspondents' Association abruptly decided to boot a conservative news network reporter from future White House briefings, announcing Wednesday night that she had violated the rules of “social distancing” during this COVID-19 crisis.
Politico is channeling a big fear of liberals concerning the coronavirus outbreak. Is this a fear that the deadly virus could spread exponentially? Perhaps. However, what really disturbs them is the possibility that President Donald Trump will get credit for keeping the number of cases relatively low which would make his reelection more likely.
On Morning Joe, Axios.com CEO Jim VandeHei denounced the "news pollution" of President Trump, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh. He says we have a societal problem of "information inequality," and that the governors of Florida and Georgia delayed issuing lockdown orders because they were living inside an "information bubble."
It’s unfortunate that CNN Prime Time host Chris Cuomo had contracted the coronavirus and had to be quarantined in his basement. But it was only a matter of time before he and the network exploited it to bash President Trump. They made their move on Wednesday when they used Cuomo’s diagnosis to dredge up the long-debunked claim that the President had called the virus a “hoax.” He even went to a disgustingly dark place and suggested that we might not survive with Trump leading the country.
White House correspondent Annie Karni isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic stop her from accusing the president of sexism and racism for daring to criticize women during the crisis (news flash: Trump criticizes everyone), under a headline harkening back to the Trump-Clinton content: “‘Nasty Woman’ Theme Returns Fully to the Fore.” The lead sentence to Karni's story on Tuesday focused on the truly important issue in these days of crisis: "As he confronts a pandemic, President Trump’s attention has also been directed at a more familiar foe: those he feels are challenging him, and particularly women."
Well, we didn’t see this coming from a mile away. #sarcasm Hulu’s drama Little Fires Everywhere has already flooded each episode with leftist propaganda. So, we knew it wouldn’t be too long before an abortion scene came up at the left’s beloved abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Naturally, CNN has been unable to resist their impulse to depart from solely informing the public about the coronavirus pandemic to insteadblame everything on President Trump as the death toll passes 4,000 Americans. One form has been refusing to carry portions of the Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing. On Wednesday, the lies and whiplash boiled over as CNN repeatedly dipped in and out of the briefing, including for an extended period of time to falsely claim that the briefing had been hijacked by an announcement on drug trafficking.
