CNN host Brianna Keilar brought on Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter to thrash Fox News Channel for a no-"pushback" town hall meeting with President Trump early on Tuesday afternoon. Stelter flunked it as a "failure of journalism." It's an odd complaint, since CNN has defined itself in this election cycle with a series of cozy town halls with Democrat voters questioning about 22 Democratic presidential wannabes.
It’s like some of this is fun and games for the press. On Tuesday night, the “big three” broadcast networks used their flagship evening newscasts to erect walls between President Donald Trump and his Coronovirus Task Force, falsely treating the President’s “hope” to reopen the economy by Easter (April 12) as a red line. In other words, it was an attempt to sow dissent and further scare Americans.
In a bizarre interview with Nicolle Wallace during her MSNBC show, Joe Biden is alternately goofy and choked up. He twice gets emotional while describing people who have lost loved ones to the coronavirus. But he also twice flings insults at President Trump, only to call his words "stupid," saying "sorry," and "I shouldn't have said it that way," while making a series of goofy facial expressions.
For Hollywood, Trump’s talk of opening American businesses back up soon so that quarantine doesn’t completely derail the lives of millions amounts to him condemning Americans to death. Celebrities like Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) should be able to understand that a nine-month quarantine would harm the U.S. more than coronavirus ever could, but acknowledging that would make it harder to insinuate that the president’s a danger to “your loved ones.”
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-WI) signed a letter demanding that Twitter ban Chinese propaganda accounts. The two Republicans sent a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding Twitter ban Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials and all foreign leaders who use Twitter while not allowing their citizens to do so. One egregious example was when Twitter allowed Spokesperson & Deputy Director General, Information Department, Foreign Ministry of China Lijian Zhao to point a finger at the U.S. and suggest, “It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan.”
It’s good to be a Democrat running for president on ABC's The View. The combative, liberal women are prone to interrupt and attack if a Republican presidential candidate comes on. But Joe Biden appeared on Tuesday for a friendly, gushing interview that lasted 24 minutes and 41 seconds. He faced almost no tough questions and talked for minutes on end without an interruption.
Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen energetically inserted his tongue into his cheek for a column titled "In order to save Dr. Fauci, we must destroy him." Get it? He's too credible to last under President Trump, so if the media trashes him as a bum, he won't get fired!
During a live interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell lobbed one softball after another, refusing to press the Democratic leader on playing politics with coronavirus relief legislation. Instead, Mitchell repeatedly encouraged Pelosi to dictate terms of the aid package and attack President Trump.
It looks as though the left will exploit any crisis in order to take a shot at President Donald Trump, and they’re being fueled by liberal billionaire cash. Liberal billionaire George Soros’ Democracy PAC and liberal billionaire Donald Sussman are bankrolling a lefty group launching attack ads against President Donald Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic with at least $13,000,000 so far this cycle.
While Joy Behar has been absent from the show, her View co-host Sunny Hostin has gladly embraced her new role as the one having meltdowns over President Trump. After she spread lies about Trump on Friday’s show, she started Tuesday’s show floating a conspiracy theory that President Trump had greedy ulterior motives for wanting to reopen the economy soon.
Univision co-anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Antonieta Collins tried to convince the network’s viewers of their objectivity and failed big time. This clip from Univision Presents: Diary of the Coronavirus, a daily special update on the COVID-19 pandemic, included a self-congratulatory pat on the back by Ramos and Collins. But a funny thing happened on the way to flaunting their self-admiration for being providers of real news vs. fake news.
While the entertainment world gnashed its collective teeth and tried hard to somehow make the pandemic Trump’s fault, one actress Kirstie Alley braved the ire of her celebrity colleagues by thanking the president for “taking charge and leading” Americans.
During the 9am hour of MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle brought on a favorite cable news guest as of late, Ron Klain, the former ebola czar for President Obama, former aide to President Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden, as well as now an adviser to Biden’s presidential campaign, to trash this administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Ruhle repeatedly compared the Obama administration’s response to the 2014 ebola outbreak, and invited Klain to boast about how he would’ve handled the coronavirus crisis better than President Trump.
CBS This Morning on Tuesday mostly ignored the findings of its own poll on the coronavirus and the government’s handling of it. The network allowed a scant 10 seconds to the news that a majority, 53 percent, approve of the President’s response. Relegated to online is the news that more Americans trust Donald Trump to given information than the media itself.
One of the leading tech writers not only chided Facebook for not censoring more but went right after the platform’s co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Co-founder of the liberal technology news website Recode and opinion columnist for The New York Times Kara Swisher blasted “white men” who run Silicon Valley, like Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. She later referred to him as “malevolent” and suggested that he should do more to censor on his social media platform.
