MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted the final segment of Monday’s All In to weighing in on the retirement of longtime Republican Congressman Peter King. In addition to portraying, Hayes King’s retirement as part of a large “red exodus” among House Republicans, Hayes attempted to characterize the retiring lawmaker as an “anti-Muslim” bigot.
The left has been pressuring Big Tech companies to change their ad policies in preparation for the 2020 election. The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is considering following the footsteps of Twitter when it comes to changing its political ad policies.
Liberal activist and actress Jane Fonda received the royal welcome on Tuesday’s The View by the equally fanatical hosts. Fonda was there to discuss her climate change activism which excited Joy Behar, as she tried to win the contest over who could be more hysterical about the state of the earth.
Univision’s “Agenda Latina” is evergreen, and ever expanding beyond immigration. The network now appears to be joining efforts to impose censorship on social media. Check out the full post to see as correspondent Lourdes Del Río advocated for “some sort of control” of social media.
On today's Morning Joe, Deutsch managed to flout virtually every "ism" taboo imaginable in criticizing the Republican congressmen who yesterday stormed Adam Schiff's closed-door impeachment inquiry. Here was Deutsch: "Those white guys, those middle-aged, boring, nerdy-looking white guys walk down that [sic] steps was pathetic . . . these pathetic wienies walking down that step . . . How pathetic. And Willie and I were talking, just as men, how do you go home and look at your wives and look at your children? Just pathetic, pathetic people."
Liberal megadonors like Tom Steyer have spent millions to help Democrats retake control of the House of Representatives in 2018. Now major liberal megadonors appear to have set their eyes, and their resources, on helping Democrats retake control of the Senate.
The headline over at NBC News was succinct: "MSNBC, Washington Post to co-host November Democratic presidential debate. Eight candidates appear to have qualified so far for the matchup in Georgia next month. The NBC story reported this: "MSNBC and The Washington Post will co-host the fifth Democratic presidential primary debate in Georgia next month, MSNBC announced Tuesday."
On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scalded Beto O'Rourke's gun confiscation proposal as a "stupendously bad ide." Joe fretted that the proposal, along with O'Rourke's support for stripping tax-exempt status from religious groups that don't support same-sex marriage, would be "be repeated around the clock between now and next November by whoever is the Republican nominee." When Joe interviewed O'Rourke a bit later, he pressed him on the confiscation proposal, eventually forcing Beto to admit that people declining to comply with such a law would receive a "visit" from "law enforcement," which would "recover" the firearms.
With all the lamentations of Trump’s divisiveness, one would think that last night’s closing debate question about “civility” and candidates’ friends from across the aisle would be a nice change of pace, or at worst a hokey diversion. Well not for the Hollywood left. Any show of bipartisan civility stands in the way of the leftist agenda and should be cast aside.
Today's Morning Joe offered up another example of what we call "Sudden Respect," the phenomenon in which a person formerly despised by the liberal media suddenly earns its respect by doing something to liberal liking. Joe Scarborough has been a fierce critic of John Bolton. But suddenly this morning, Scarborough overflowed with praise for Bolton, repeatedly referring to Bolton as a "patriot." So what did Bolton do to turn Scarborough's scorn into such fawning admiration? Reports that Bolton branded the Trump administration's Ukraine policy a "drug deal."
In a textbook case of bias by omission, Univision’s coverage of last night’s LGBTQ forum skipped a key quote from candidate Beto O’Rourke.
Joe Scarborough: he's not just another liberal talking head anymore. Now he's a bona fide Democrat electoral strategist, offering advice on how Dems can rack up a big win in 2020 and defeat President Trump. On today's Morning Joe, Professor Eddie Glaude was beside himself. He told Joe "I don't know what to do," faced with people who listen to Fox News and buy into the "lies" of Republican politicians. Scarborough consoled/explained to Glaude: "What you do is you register, you get your friends to register to vote, you drive them to the polling booth, you have an election, and you win so convincingly like the Democrats did in 2018."
