In the September 22nd episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Game Changers,” leftist "comedienne" Chelsea Handler spent the “Apology Time” segment of her show apologizing to America on behalf of the Emmys for "normalizing" former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer who she calls, "a willing mouthpiece for a lying bucket of d*cks." Classy.
On Thursday's Morning Joe, former senior campaign strategist of the unsuccessful 2008 Presidential campaign of John McCain and current MSNBC Political Analyst Steve Schmidt decided to tap deep into his political bloodlust. He labeled those who support deporting “dreamers” as “extreme,” purveyors of “cruelty,” and “loons screaming out there on the fringes” who are “gonna have no impact.”
On Tuesday and Thursday nights, liberal MSNBC hosts Ari Melber and Lawrence O’Donnell lobbed softballs at Senator and possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (Calif.) on issues ranging from DACA to the Russia investigation to single-payer health care.
Are the long, liberal knives of journalists out for Nancy Pelosi? The Democratic Minority Leader on Monday appeared on CBS This Morning and endured repeated questions about whether she is up to the job of facing down Donald Trump and the Republicans. After playing a montage of anti-Pelosi Democrats, Charlie Rose reminded, “You've been losing special elections, four of them."
With so much attention focused on the meaning of the results of Sixth District Congressional special election in Georgia, the establishment press has not looked into what happened to pre-election polls which showed Democrat Jon Ossoff ahead of Republican Karen Handel by as many as seven points less than two weeks before Tuesday's election. Though it may partially have been yet another in a long series of Democrat-driven polling failures intended to drive down Republican turnout, the plausible idea that the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise the previous week and the ongoing campaign of violent rhetoric from the left had an impact is not getting the attention one would expect.
HOORAY! We lost again!!! A reliable source of humor after Democrats lose elections is Vox writer Matthew Yglesias. A month ago Matthews was celebrating the loss of the democrat in the Montana special congressional election by declaring his loss to really mean a win for democrats. Yglesias continued mining this political comedy vein by declaring that the loss of Jon Ossoff in the George 6th Congressional District special election, after the party blew over $30 million on his campaign, really means that the "Republicans are in trouble."
Rob Eno at Conservative Review caught Eleanor Clift in a major Twitter boo-boo, claiming that Congresswoman-Elect Karen Handel was an executive at Planned Parenthood. "Will Karen Handel vote to defund Planned Parenthood, where she was top exec and supported PP goals before getting booted out." Wrong, wrong, wrong. Handel was an executive at the breast-cancer charity Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure, and was booted out because of Planned Parenthood (and liberal media) pressure in 2012.
You read it here first. Two months ago -- and again last night -- NewsBusters pointed out that there was a major hole in the dominant media theory that GA-06 was a "solidly Republican" district that Republicans should be embarrassed about having to defend in yesterday's special election. In spite of Donald Trump just barely winning the district last November, many journalists and commentators touted former Republican Rep. Tom Price's landslide reelection from the same Election Day as evidence the district was still solidly Republican and that its coolness toward Trump was just an anomalous diversion from normalcy.
Georgians in the sixth Congressional district just elected their first female to the House of Representatives in the most expensive House race in history. While all three broadcast networks reported the race was historic in terms of spending, only NBC clearly acknowledged that most of the donations came from outside the state of Georgia.
The night of June 20 was a rough one at Buzzfeed, the nasty hard-left clickbait site. How do we know? Partly because of their depressed coverage of the Georgia special election results, and partly because a new book tells us what it was like around the Buzzfeed offices election night 2016.
It only took four sentences for Bill Barrow and Kathleen Foody at the Associated Press to serve up a howler in their attempt to minimize the national significance of Republican Karen Handel's victory over Democrat Jon Ossoff in Tuesday evening's Sixth District congressional election in Georgia. Their report's fourth sentence claimed that the winner's victory speech "thank you to Trump was Handel's most public show of support of the man who wasn't embraced by many voters in the well-educated suburban Atlanta district in November." That's utter nonsense, as the AP pair essentially admitted two times much later in their dispatch.
Washington Post journalist Ed O’Keefe on Wednesday attempted to spin away yet another loss for Democrats in a congressional election. Appearing on CBS This Morning, he even insisted that the GOP going four-for-four in congressional races is a potentially bad “sign” for 2018. Talk about fake news.
