On Monday, PolitiFact editor Angie Drobnic Holan wrote an article expressing her frustration that Sen. Ted Cruz would dare to mock her website on Twitter as “a wholly-owned subsidary of the DNC.” She insisted PolitiFact is an "independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit newsroom that fact-checks Democrats and Republicans alike" that was "unaffected by agenda or biases." That's not what a look at the numbers on Ted Cruz vs. Elizabeth Warren show.
Morning Joe might have been more motivated by concern for Democrats than upholding journalistic standards. But the show did today rip the New York Times for its "glaring omission" in failing to include in the original version of its article about a new accusation against Brett Kavanaugh the fact that the alleged victim doesn't want to speak and friends say doesn't recall the incident. Joe Scarborough also criticized the Times' failure to mention that the person who brought forth the new allegation, Max Stier, was on the other side from Kavanaugh in the Starr investigation. Joe and Mika warned Dems that jumping on this latest story could backfire on them. They suggested that the presidential candidates calling for Kavanaugh's impeachment speak with Claire McCaskill and ask how the Kavanaugh hearings, etc. worked out for her and other Democrats in 2018.
The View co-hosts kept defending the Democrat “squad” Monday, after the media firestorm surrounding President Trump’s tweets against them refuses to die down. Co-host Sunny Hostin even attributed a fake quote to Thomas Jefferson to hail how patriotic these congresswomen were.
Whoopi Goldberg began the segment with a lengthy diatribe against Trump adviser Stephen Miller for defending Trump this weekend. Reading from a cue card, she began, “You know you’re a racist when":
Liberal CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King gushed over the “impressive,” “passionate,” “committed” “squad” of far-left Democratic Congresswomen: Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley. In an exclusive interview, she encouraged them to explain what it was like to be attacked by Donald Trump. But then something unusual happened. King repeatedly pressed Omar about her anti-Semitic attacks against Jews and Israel.
Singer/songwriter Janelle Monae is furious with pretty much everyone in Washington over “xenophobic” Trump’s recent “racist” tweets to Democratic congresswomen.
Saikat Chakrabarti is the controversial, hard-left chief of staff to the equally liberal Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He is also the guy who recently compared moderate Democrats to segregationists of the past. Yet, the Washington Post is in love with what this activist could mean. In a 2900 word Post Magazine profile, Chakrabarti is hailed as “AOC’s chief of change” and “the movement chief of staff.”
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos shields Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) from her remarks comparing immigrant detention centers to Nazi concentration camps, in what is his most recent and most blatant instance of AOC fandom. If you thought that last week’s effusive praise of AOC’s appearance on ABC’s This Week was the apex of media cheerleading then you, dear reader, thought wrong.
Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to gush over U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in direct conflict with the persona he has purportedly built over the past few years (the Trump years, if you will) of being a proponent and defender of the kind of journalism that must, in order to be pure, remain in direct opposition to power.
Good news for the underdwellers in our apocalyptic capitalist reality; the socialist revolution will be televised! The new streaming platform Means TV aims to launch soon, providing anti-capitalist propaganda to true believers in the trenches, looking to inspire hope as they toil in this free-market hellscape. Should we point out the irony that these worker party broadcasts will sit behind a subscription paywall?
NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers has made it his mission to defend anti-Semitic Democrats lately and condescend to everyone offended by their rhetoric that they are just too ethnocentric to understand the good reasons why these Dems hate Israel and Jews. After playing Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s publicist last week during an interview with Meghan McCain, Meyers was back at it Monday night defending Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s shocking comments on the Holocaust.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was on The View Monday where he was mostly grilled from the left on Trump’s relationship with Russia, immigration policies, and his rhetoric. Only one conservative question was allowed for the very end, but regardless, the former Navy SEAL held his own against the very hostile hosts.
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.
