Accusing the president of “trying to get” someone killed is pretty over the top. But Vox’s David Roberts isn’t exactly known for keeping his mouth shut.
Morning Joe airs a clip of Nancy Pelosi, in an interview in London on April 15th, recycling the myth of hunger in America. Pelosi falsely claims that "one in five children in America goes to sleep hungry at night." The true statistic is that about 1-in-100 children in America experiences hunger once a year. On any given night, about one in 1,000 children go to sleep hungry.
After being the face of a celebratory Newsweek cover this week, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota appeared on the Late Show Wednesday night to get the star treatment yet again. The controversial freshman Democrat was in trouble again this week for making audacious comments about 9/11, but she was safe from any criticism from host Stephen Colbert. He didn’t even ask her about this, instead, egging her on to attack Fox News for daring to air these comments that the rest of the media largely ignored.
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
Famous gay DIY style gurus, the Queer Eye boys hit the D.C. circuit on Thursday April 4, hoping to meet some of our nation’s great legislative leaders. They settled for Alexandria “Three Chambers” Ocasio-Cortez, and Nancy “Clapback” Pelosi.
CNN really wants you to take them seriously as a news organization, but it’s infinitely more difficult when they keep on inviting proven fake news anchors such as Dan Rather to opine on the day’s news like they did on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight. Host Don Lemon again thought it was worth inviting on “Mr. Rather” to bash the President as a liar and demand more transparency from the Justice Department concerning the Mueller report. And no, you can’t make this stuff up.
As news of the Mueller report’s arrival broke late Friday afternoon, newscasts scrambled to adequately cover a story that is sure to shake up the nation’s political landscape. Our major domestic Spanish-language newscasts were no different, but there was a clear tonal difference in how news of the Mueller report was covered.
Dinosaur media outlet Time magazine awarded Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a gushing cover story for the April 1 issue, rhapsodizing over the “phenom” who is “the best storyteller in the [Democratic] Party.” Ocasio-Cortez’s hard-left brand of socialism is portrayed positively and Time national correspondent Charlotte Alter found no time to mention the cow farting and airplane elimination removal part of the Green New Deal.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a recent rehash of recurring tropes, but also features a strange apologia for radical liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as well as the distinct odor of censorship.
On Tuesday's Morning Edition newscast, NPR host Steve Inskeep interviewed freshman Rep. Lauren Underwood, who narrowly defeated conservative Rep. Randy Hultgren in November. Inskeep touted how she's rare as a young black woman who represents a mostly-white district in suburbs and exurbs around Chicago. But boy, did she NOT want to talk about her fellow freshman Ilhan Omar.
MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews made clear on Wednesday’s Hardball that, despite Beto O’Rourke’s November 2018 electoral loss in Texas, he’s still enamored with former El Paso-era Congressmanand excited about his presidential campaign. At one point in the show, Matthews cheered the gooey, gushy Vanity Fair profile of O’Rourke as “the best kiss I’ve seen for a candidate in a long time” and a candidate looking so “optimistic” and “sunny.”
The media has been salivating over the notion that former Democrat politicians Beto O’Rourke and Stacey Abrams will likely run in 2020 for president, despite losing their respective midterm races this past Fall. On CNN Newsroom Tuesday morning, anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto showed no skepticism, as their guest cheered on Abrams for announcing at South by Southwest Monday that she was thinking of running for president in 2020.
