At the top of the 11:00 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi gave his left-wing guests free rein accuse Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis of being “blatantly racist” due to a poor choice of words he used in a Fox News interview. One of the pundits, left-wing SiriusXM host Mark Thompson, a regular on the cable channel, even demanded that the GOP congressman immediately withdraw from the race.
Univision’s news division took the controversy that has engulfed the Florida gubernatorial race and predictably...for lack of a better term...they monkeyed it up.
It looks like the media has found their new messiah in Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida. Gillum, the Bernie Sanders-backed Mayor of Tallahasse. Gillum pulled an upset by beating out establishment favorite Gwen Graham in Tuesday’s Democratic primary. Should he manage to win the general election, Gillum would become the first African-American Governor in the Sunshine State’s history.
All three networks on Wednesday touted the surprise win of Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. The liberal Democrat, endorsed by Bernie Sanders, advocates for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. But ABC, CBS and NBC skipped this radical position. The Orlando Sentinel on July 5, 2018 explained what the networks missed:
On Wednesday, left-wing Florida gubernatorial nominee and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum was treated to a softball interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that completely skipped any mention of his radical calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement or impeach President Trump. The Democrat also avoided having to answer a single question about the corruption scandal plaguing his city government.
Now that Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tried to backtrack Friday on remarks from Wednesday that America “was never that great,” the CBS Evening News broke the silence by the network’s news operation with a 26-second news brief. The move followed CBS’s The Late Show from Thursday when even liberal host Stephen Colbert and former Obama staffers-turned-Pod Save America hosts blasted Cuomo’s gaffe.
While the journalists at CBS News have still refused to cover New York Governor Andrew Cuomo telling a crowd of supporters on Wednesday that America “was never that great,” Late Show host Stephen Colbert pressed a trio of former Obama White House staffers about gaffe on Thursday night’s program, aired early Friday morning.
So you say you’re weary of all that press coverage for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democrat who defeated heavily favored incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in the party’s primary last month and is still trying to explain what a “Democratic socialist” does? If so, Time magazine has got the candidate just for you! And if she’s victorious on Election Day, she will become a hard-left governor for the state of Georgia.
The View continued its pathetic pandering to Democrat politicians and officials today, after having Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the show in the past few weeks for softball interviews. Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett appeared on Wednesday’s show for another friendly conversation, where host Joy Behar lamented that Trump was going to destroy the world and it was imperative that Obama condemn him publicly.
Hollywood has a unique way of overreacting and completely missing the point.
On Thursday’s The View, the hosts talked with Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging Andrew Cuomo for his seat in New York’s gubernatorial race. The radical activist only got softball questions from the friendly hosts, despite saying some pretty controversial things at the table.
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.
