The New York Times is still trying to make concern over “climate change” happen within the GOP, this time hyping the threat climate denial poses to the party’s prospects. Lisa Friedman, New York Times “climate change” reporter and former editor of ClimateWire, made the front page Saturday with “Climate, Taboo In G.O.P., Eats At Party Youth.” Friedman wrote: "While Donald Trump has led the Republican Party far down the road of denying the scientific consensus of human-caused climate change..."
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has lots of big ideas to redesign the United States. She dreams of Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, forgiving student loans, waging war on corporate America and more. On the debate stage in Detroit, Warren pushed back when others raised doubts about her ambitious agenda: "I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for."
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
The morning after the second Democratic debate the cast of CNN New Day was joined by three former Democratic spokespeople and consultants to discuss the previous night’s proceedings and they were not happy with their candidates. Like their MSNBC counterparts, they blasted the candidates for going after former President Obama than current President Trump.
It’s been clear for a long time that CNN is part of the anti-Trump resistance. From morning to night, the various journalists, hosts and panelists on the network make that obvious. Still, it’s nice when someone comes out and admits it. And that was precisely the gift that Karen Finney bestowed this morning on CNN.
On the front of The New York Times National section, Matt Stevens reported breathlessly on the reemergence of Wendy Davis (aka “Abortion Barbie”): “From Filibuster Over Abortion To Run for Seat in U.S. House.” As a Texas state senator, Davis notoriously attempted a filibuster of a state abortion bill in 2013, which made her, in Stevens’ words, an “overnight political star.” Then she badly lost her race for Texas governor. But never mind that: "Ms. Davis has often leaned on her back story to inspire voters and demonstrate her tenacity."
The third season of Veronica Mars aired on the CW in 2007 and now, 12 years later, Hulu has brought it back. I am what one might call a dedicated "Marshmallow" - a superfan of the titular teen detective who was equal parts sarcastic and hard-boiled. Imagine both my excitement when I found out the show was coming back and my abject disappointment when I found out that this fourth season was chock full of liberal nonsense.
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid puts it to black Republican strategist Lenny McAllister that since President Trump's policies, supposedly, hurt poor people, he has nothing to offer poor whites other than racism. When McAllister tries to raise school choice as an issue Republicans can support, and which helps African-Americans in particular, Reid shuts him down, changes the subject, and moves to another guest.
Thursday's Washington Post announced the Democrats attempt to rewrite recent history by deleting all tweets by their party members reflecting their feuds.
It's not just Donald Trump that the liberal media despises. Now, his supporters are due for attacks. Take Joe Scarborough on Thursday's Morning Joe. He slimed Trump’s rally in North Carolina this way: “That’s the President, actually, from his Nuremberg rally from last night.” Get it? They’re like Nazis.
The "mainstream" media site Axios is publicizing a new poll that an unnamed Democratic group did of 1,000 swing voters, specifically white voters with less than two years of college. The pollsters asked specifically about radical new members of Congress, and what they found was shocking.
The journalists at CBS on Friday once again plotted strategy with a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. Talking to Senator Amy Klobuchar, co-host Anthony Mason worried that ObamaCare might be overturned. (Back in federal court again, it faced a skeptical reaction this week from judges.)
