On the Monday edition of his eponymously named PBS show, host Tavis Smiley provided a forum with little pushback for author and American University Professor Ibram Kendi to claim that the social problems that disproportionately exist within America's black population are the result of continuing racial discrimination, and that those who do not agree with his conclusions therefore must believe blacks are "inferior."
After relentless attacks from Donald Trump and the Republican president’s allies, a series of journalistic catastrophes and in the shadow of a possible merger, CNN's chief executive officer, Jeff Zucker, is feeling the heat, according to Vanity Fair columnist Sarah Ellison.
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on Fox Business, Wednesday to slam the media’s obsession with a “secret” meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Regarding an after-dinner discussion the G-20 discussion, Noyes marveled, “There is no evidence of anything going on except an after dinner conversation, but the media are so paranoid about Donald Trump, they want to... suggest there's another crime happening before their eyes.”
The broadcast networks' obsession with all things Russia continues: Over the last ten days (July 9 to July 18, including weekends), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts have devoted nearly two hours (114 minutes) to the ongoing probe of potential 2016 collusion -- far more airtime than they devoted to any other political topic.
As the White House becomes further entrenched in the throes of media claims of Russian collusion, it seemed only natural that the news media would have a fit of spasmodic rage when President Trump had an undisclosed meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit of world leaders.
On Wednesday, CNN did something they would have never done to President Obama. New Day and Newsroom highlighted tweets and news reports mocking President Trump. The tweets/reports were having fun with the fact that a tropical storm was named Don. Even the Washington Post joined in. So much for respectful journalism.
“Too cozy,” “controversy,” “striking,” “crisis,” “startling,” those were just some of the hyperbolic terms thrown around on Wednesday’s network morning shows as hosts and correspondents panicked over news that President Trump had a casual after-dinner conversation with Vladimir Putin surrounded by dozens of other world leaders at the G20 Summit earlier this month.
Reporters and journalists tend to avoid the stories that are personal to them on principle. But when it comes to LGBTQ rights, not so much. CNN practically needs a dedicated trophy case for all the GLAAD awards it’s talent has brought home.
As if further proof were needed, Out Magazine recently released its Power 50 list for 2017, a list of the most powerful people in the media who identify as LGBTQ. Mixed in with drag queen RuPaul Charles, Grindr CEO Joel Simkhai and Caitlyn Jenner were top anchors and reporters for CNN, MSNBC, and ABC: Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, and Robin Roberts. In total, seven news anchors were named as part of the Power 50.
Late in Tuesday’s AC360, former Republican National Committee (RNC) official and CNN political commentator Mike Shields unloaded on his fellow panelists and the news media at large for failing to connect with Americans outside the Washington D.C. area.
CNN has gone all out in defense of ObamaCare and has attacked any Republican measure to amend it. On Wednesday's New Day, virtually the entirety of the show was spent trashing Republicans. They also continuously whined about the "undisclosed" Trump-Putin meeting that took place at a dinner in front of leaders and the media. How secretive.
She’s 84 years old and she’s a left-wing rock star. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (lately “Notorious RBG” to fans of liberal judicial activism) can be relied on to come down on the progressive side of nearly every issue that reaches the Supreme Court, including so-called “abortion rights.”
Far-left View co-host Joy Behar slobbered all over Bernie Sanders, Wednesday, lauding the socialist as a “hot” “hero.” This is the same Behar who previously said that she was “aroused” by the politician.
How "far right" can Texas go? The scare-mongering theme about “vanishing Republican moderates” is a popular myth at the Times and other liberal media outlets, especially in red states like Texas. The New York Times really went overboard with it Wednesday in “Bathroom Bill Tests the Clout of a Rare Moderate in Texas” by Manny Fernandez and David Montgomery. Fernandez, Houston bureau chief for the Times, is clearly not comfortable in what he has called “ultraconservative Texas.”
Media outlets ranging from CBS to CNN and MSNBC had egg on their faces Tuesday night after their bombshell revelations about a supposedly new, “previously undisclosed” meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin fell flat upon reading a July 8 BuzzFeed news item.
While President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 Summit sparked media speculation, HBO host Bill Maher tweeted another, very explicit question for liberals to ponder.
