In his 11th Hour time slot after the ABC debate on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams caused wailing and gnashing of teeth from the Greenpeace gang when he questioned whether the debate tilted too far left on guns and "green jobs," which he said was an insult to blue-collar voters, that fossil fuels will be banned, and then there are promises of green jobs on the horizon...somewhere.
On today's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch urged the Democrats participating in tonight's debate to "assault" President Trump, whom Deutsch describes as an "ogre." Deutsch claims nothing else matters because "our democracy is under siege."
The Hollywood Left isn’t a fraction as tolerant of differing opinions as it likes to pretend. They can’t stand conservatives, and they especially can’t stand public supporters of President Trump. The latest example began when The Hollywood Reporter declared that President Trump would appear at a Beverly Hills re-election fundraiser on September 17. The stars of NBC’s rebooted gay-agitprop sitcom Will & Grace announced a new blacklist. It didn't go well for them.
Vanity Fair is a reliable glossy partner with the Democratic establishment. Take the latest from Peter Hamby, who covered politics for CNN from 2005 to 2015 before scoring a gig doing news for the youngsters at Snapchat. His latest article carried a headling full of angst: “'Are We Really Going to Have a Gaffe-Fest Over Joe Biden?': How Clickbait and Outrage Porn Are Hurting Readers—and Elevating Trump."
Twitchy editor Greg Pollowitz noted on Saturday that PolitiFact is so senstive about Joe Biden that it gave a "Mostly False" rating to a Facebook post showing a photo of Biden holding hands with former Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd: "PolitiFact has done it again, this time ruling that a 100% real photo of Joe Biden with former KKK leader Robert Byrd is mostly false because the caption referred to Byrd as a Grand Wizard and not his correct title of Exalted Cyclops."
A new liberal 501(c)(4) “dark money” group linked to the liberal House Majority PAC intends to spend millions on TV and digital ads to help Democrats maintain control of the House of Representatives. Internal Revenue Service rules stipulate that 501(c)(4) organizations cannot make politicking the primary purpose, yet the new group plans to devote 94% of its 2019 budget to ads.
It's been fascinating to watch the media-bias deniers of the "mainstream" media dismiss socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders crying Centrist Bias with all the same contempt they show conservatives. On Monday, Sanders fan Keith Spencer at Salon.com obsessed over a Twitter account under the name "HoarseWhisperer," an anonymous account which for some mysterious reason was singled out by disgraced MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on his show The 11th Hour, as he nudged two reporters to denounce Sanders for having "no evidence" of bias.
Morning Joe ripped a resolution adopted by the Alabama Republican Party calling for the expulsion from Congress of Ilhan Omar, but fails to mention the latest controversies concerning her, in which she has been accused of conducting an affair with a married man, and paying him and his consulting firm hundreds of thousands of dollars in possible violation of campaign finance law.
On Monday, NBC’s Today show attempted to pass off an effort by Hillary Clinton supporters to infiltrate the Republican Party as a legitimate effort to recruit GOP women to run for office in 2020. During the report, White House correspondent Kristen Welker talked to several female “Republican” candidates but failed to mention that the founders of the grassroots group backing those candidates actively campaigned for Clinton in 2016.
The liberal media's reliable "rock star" metaphors are breaking out for the 2020 campaign. In Sunday's Washington Post, theatre critic Peter Marks witnessed Elizabeth Warren speaking in Tempe, Arizona and professed to be "moved," declaring Warren the "Springsteen of campaign 2020."
Was it a gun-control spiel from a Democrat presidential candidate? A TV ad from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence? Nope. It was Alisyn Camerota, an ostensibly objective CNN news host, telling viewers on Wednesday morning's New Day that if you want more gun control, you're just gonna have to vote Democrat in 2020.
Reading more like a political action committee's website, The Washington Post sports section devoted a story this week to a progressive sports announcer's upcoming book aiming to discourage the 2020 re-election of Senate President Mitch McConnell (Rep-Kentucky). Ben Strauss wrote the story about a book-length rebuke of McConnell by Matt Jones, a "southern progressive populist," sports radio host in Kentucky and ongoing critic of the long-time senator. The book is co-authored by Chris Tomlin, not to be mistaken for the popular Christian singer Chris Tomlin.
