Earlier this week, Reuters/Ipsos reported that its generic "How Will You Vote?" poll ahead of November's mid-term elections had swung into Republicans' favor for the first time this year, erasing a double-digit lead Democrats had just four weeks ago. This kind of movement would certainly be news at the Associated Press, the New York Times, the Big Three networks, and other so-called mainstream media outlets if a strong GOP lead were to disappear so quickly.
All three network morning shows on Wednesday celebrated “history being made” and “progress” after female Democratic candidates won primaries in several states on Tuesday. The broadcasts were particularly enthralled by African American state legislator Stacey Abrams winning Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and openly gay former sheriff Lupe Valdez winning the same contest in the state of Texas.
While interviewing Republican Congressional Candidate Lea Marquez Peterson on Sunday’s edition of KasieDC, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt tried to bait her into calling the President a racist by bringing up his comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals”: “The President earlier this week referred to some immigrants and drug dealers as well as animals, not as people. Do you think that rhetoric is racist?”
Jon Meacham apparently isn't paying attention to the liberal message (for now) to NOT mention that if the Democrats win back the House this November, they will impeach President Trump. Perhaps historian and failed Newsweek editor Meacham is so eager for that impeachment that he just couldn't hold back on Monday's Morning Joe.
On his Sunday show on CNN, as Fareed Zakaria presided over a segment discussing the week's news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only the left and the far left were included as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman slammed President Donald Trump's Israel policy as "diplomatic pornography," and Palestinian activist Hanan Ashrawi claimed that all of Jerusalem is "occupied" and tried to downplay the culpability of Hamas in the violent Gaza protests and attacks on the Israeli border fence.
Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos and retiring Chicagoland Congressman Luis Gutiérrez once again teamed up for a master class in racial demagoguery and agenda-driven journalism. This time, in order to make hay out of President Trump’s “animals” remark regarding MS-13 gang members.
Una vez más, el presentador de noticias de Univisión Jorge Ramos comprueba que ningún argumento es impropio siempre y cuando fomente la agenda antiarmas de la cadena, ni siquiera una teoría de conspiración sin base fáctica.
Once again, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos proves that no argument is off limits so long as it advances the network’s gun control agenda, not even a conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.
On Tuesday, the Associated Press produced a dispatch exemplifying why the public so deeply distrusts and despises the establishment press. Tasked with covering President Donald Trump's lunch with Republican senators, reporters Lisa Mascaro and Anne Flaherty decided that relaying what happened and what was discussed was relatively unimportant. Instead, in a transparent attempt to fuel controversies not germane to the event and to perpetuate the meme of a Trump presidency mired in controversy, they made their story primarily about what didn't happen and what wasn't discussed.
Billionaire Tom Steyer is still digging out from under his response to a question about whether President Donald Trump is like “Hitler.” Near the end of an MSNBC interview about his impeachment efforts, someone in the liberal media finally asked liberal “activist” Steyer about the Trump/Hitler comparison a woman made to Steyer last week.
On Wednesday, the ABC and CBS morning shows were so excited at the prospect of Democrats seizing control of the House of Representatives in November that they decided to get an early start on their slanted campaign coverage by gushing over the number of female Democratic candidates who won primary races in multiple states on Tuesday, particularly in Pennsylvania.
During MSNBC’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday, correspondent Jacob Soboroff actually grilled Democratic Pennsylvania congressional candidate John Morganelli on his policy positions, but did so from the left, accusing the pro-life politician of being “too conservative.” The interview came just moments after a fawning report in which the reporter went campaigning door to door with Morganelli’s more liberal primary opponent.
