The liberal billionaire Godfather of the left is definitely not sitting on the sidelines this electoral cycle. The left’s “flagship 2020 super PAC,” Priorities USA, is going to be providing cover via ads for the presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden. Politico reported March 9 that the PAC is “arguing that as the party’s likely nominee for president, Biden needs to be defended from attacks being waged by President Donald Trump and his allies.”
Univision’s coverage of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s dangerous tirade against TWO sitting Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States showcases simultaneous biases by omission and by commission- and abortion is the point of intersection.
Put a check mark on the PBS NewsHour for politicizing the coronavirus. On Friday’s Week in Politics segment, anchor Judy Woodruff pointed to (liberal) "sniping" about the president putting Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the government’s task force. New York Times columnist David Brooks said it's doesn't exactly inspire confidence. At segment's end, Brooks insisted that politically, there was no "upside" for President Trump, and "a lot of upside for Democrats."
Broad consensus on Morning Joe that to stop Bernie Sanders, Bloomberg should walk the plank and let Joe Biden compete with Sanders one-on-one. The "be gone, Bloomie" scenario was predicated on the assumption that Biden will handily win the South Carolina primary this Saturday.
Where does MSNBC find these so-called "Republicans?" A guest on Al Sharpton's show tonight was Rina Shah, whom Sharpton introduced as a "Republican strategist." In the course of her appearance, Shah said that President Trump "tends to speak out of his rear end." She later said that Trump is "racist to his core."
In the last week, journalists have erupted, feuded and generally freaked out over the acquittal of Donald Trump and the implosion of the Democratic Party. So it might be a good time to The September 5, 2017 episode of American Horror Story: Cult. The FX series made by the deeply liberal Ryan Murphy retold election night 2016 as an apocalyptic meltdown for the show’s characters.
Reporting for Friday’s Today show, NBC’s senior Washington correspondent Andrea Mitchell seemed enamored by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg “getting under the President’s skin.” In a segment designed to boost the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign, she touted Bloomberg “saying he won’t be bullied” by President Trump.
Though the apparent attempt to rundown multiple Trump supporters registering voters in Florida happened Saturday afternoon, and drew outrage from both of the state’s senators and President Trump himself, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC completely ignored the vicious attack.

National Public Radio (NPR) continues to reinforce the years-old case for why its taxpayer-funding should be pulled by hiring a partisan to head up the entire organization.
As the Democratic caucus in Iowa descended into chaos and mockery, Chris Matthews turned up just before midnight on Monday to trash the “three car funeral” and suggest it might be a preview of a coming Democratic disaster for the party. He also warned of a “historic loss for the country” if Democrats couldn’t get their act together. Matthews fumed, “The guy in the White House is chuckling all night here, showing the Democrats can't even get a three car funeral organized or whatever you want to call it. I would say to the people of Iowa, ‘Will the last person leaving Des Moines, please turn out the lights?’” This has not been a success.”
On his Sunday show State of the Union, CNN anchor Jake Tapper tapdanced on the Biden line again, that harrumph, of course, there's "NO evidence anybody did anything illegal regarding the Bidens and Ukraine." The obvious retort is "including President Trump. But they impeached him anyway."
Before Friday’s session of the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s hatred was in full display for those who wouldn’t be voting and thinking the way they’ve demanded, lobbing one firebomb after another while simultaneously decrying the lack of bipartisanship and civility.
