Tuesday’s Dana Bash-Joe Biden interview was embarrassing and pathetic to begin with for CNN, but things got even dumber right after it first aired. On The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer spent over six minutes boasting of how not only was it an “excellent interview” with Biden’s “very strong words” for President Trump, but how socially distanced the interview was.
May is when most schools celebrate the end of an academic year by hosting commencement ceremonies featuring speeches made by guest speakers giving students advice on how to remain successful after graduation. However, the humorless scolds at The Washington Post and other outlets weren't happy with Ben Sasse's jokes during his speech.
Republicans scored a big win on Tuesday night, but you wouldn’t know it from most of the media. Former Navy pilot Mike Garcia flipped a blue congressional seat in California, turning the Democratic district red for the first time in over 20 years. Yet, the network newscasts skipped it on Wednesday night and again on Thursday morning.
Has the pandemic caused the liberal media to lose whatever vestigial grip on reality it ever had? The question arises in light of a surreal conversation on today's Morning Joe between Mika Brzezinski and Eugene Robinson. The pair were discussing Robinson's latest Washington Post column, the gist of which is that Democrat campaign tactics are too nice, being based on "reason and fairness."
Insufferable CNN-labeled “Republican strategist” Ana Navarro continued to prove why she’s the farthest thing from a “Republican strategist.” She funded the campaign of presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. Federal Election Commission records show that Navarro contributed $250 February 29, to Biden. Three days before the recorded donation, Navarro said on Twitter: “Oh, Jesus. He is pure decency and empathy. I love @JoeBiden.” She donated to Biden three days later.
Multiple liberal outlets fumed at how conservative donors have funded groups who have supported lockdown protests across the country. But they avoided reporting how the left is outspending the right in this election cycle to outside groups by over $100 million. Records reveal that all top liberal donors listed by Open Secrets (59) spent a whopping $191,827,021 combined so far on liberal groups.
Liberal New York Times economist Paul Krugman needed to dip into the graveyard of famous newspaper headlines to spit childish hyperbole at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Krugman went #PeakWoke at McConnell’s suggestion that states should file for bankruptcy. Ironic that the guy who wrote the Keynesian book “Arguing with Zombies: Economic, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future,” would attempt to revive a zombie headline from roughly 45 years ago to continue proving his lefty bias.
Joy Reid's show on MSNBC provides a virtual parody of liberal-elite condescension to Trump supporters. Reid found it "confusing" that Trump's populist base supports him despite supposedly not "getting anything economically out of this plutocracy." The New Yorker's Jane Mayer explained to Reid that Trump's "racist and anger-laced" rhetoric "excites the lower-educated part of his base, the white-male base, particularly. And so he's saying things that make his supporters feel good."
Liberal outlet Politico exploited the coronavirus-induced "economic meltdown" and translated it into a political tool to be used by Democrats against Republicans to win races in Texas. In an absurd story headlined, “Economic meltdown gives Democrats new hope in Texas,” Politico bleated that “The twin economic shock of the coronavirus pandemic and a collapsing oil market has upended the political landscape in Texas." The outlet continued drooling that this was "driving Republicans into an unfamiliar defensive crouch and giving restive Democrats an unexpected election-year lift.”
Liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg may have failed his ridiculously expensive White House bid, but the amount of cash he continues to spend is still being put to use for Democratic Congressional contenders. Data compiled by Advertising Analytics recently revealed that the liberal House Majority PAC had spent a whopping $52,303,503 on advertising so far helping Democrats competing for seats in the House of Representatives.
Telemundo's daily kaffeeklatsch, Un Nuevo Día, allotted close to 10 minutes to a softball interview with Bronx socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, where she faced nothing but soft questions and appeared to ditch fellow socialist Bernie Sanders less than an hour before the suspension of his presidential campaign.
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.”
