MSNBC on Friday pushed conspiracy theories and “dark” scenarios about the future. Rehabilitated liar Brian Williams invited network host and frequent guest Donny Deutsch to speculate on America’s foreboding future, should Trump continue in office. Deutsch warned, “People have to understand this is not a man who is playing with any boundaries on what a normal civilization and normal democracy has. I use the word sociopath and I know you’re not supposed to use psychological terms.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows ran with the narrative that President Trump and other Republicans were fearing a “voter backlash” ahead of the 2020 election in the wake of “extreme” pro-life legislation being enacted by states across the country. At no point in any of the coverage did the NBC, ABC, or CBS journalists suggest that Democrats might look too extreme in their support for abortion.
Monday at The View, the hosts heaped praise on 2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg for being one of the few Democrats who agreed to do a town hall on Fox News, this past Sunday. Co-host Joy Behar loved that Buttigieg attacked the right-leaning network at one point, and the other hosts commended the Democrat for trying to reach the other side.
Joe Scarborough claims that presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is "mainstreaming" the Democrat party, ignoring his hard-left policy positions that include support for the Green New Deal, and proposals to abolish the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court.
Looking for leverage to get the Democrats to fund a flame-shooting border wall, President Trump promises to refuse to resupply the International Space Station until Democrats agree to the funding in the May 19 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President. Pitting suffering astronauts against the president, media reports cause Trump to begin to lose support. He even loses support from loyal Trump supporters like Sean Hannity, along with Ann Coulter who appears on Hannity’s show.
Here's one obvious way Chuck Todd isn't trying to be Tim Russert. Instead of asking Bernie Sanders a hardball about why he explicitly praised America's communist enemies during the Cold War, he framed the question as a Democrat primary voter would frame it. How are you going to get around the oafish conservatives and their nasty tweets?
On CBS's Face the Nation, Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, a hardcore abortion backer, calls abortion a "life and death" decision that women should have right to make. CBS host Margaret Brennan didn't blink.
During Sunday’s morning newscasts, NBC’s Sunday Today was talking about how Democrats had to define Republicans as extreme on abortion while ABC’s Good Morning America asserted that the GOP was extreme. Meanwhile, the broadcast networks have almost completely ignored the Democratic Party’s support for abortions up until the day of birth and a failed attempt to legalize infanticide in Virginia.
Friday on The View, co-host Joy Behar practically begged her guest, 2020 presidential candidate Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), to impeach President Trump. Behar fretted over the Treasury Department not handing over Trump’s tax returns, and the subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. as examples of the administration skirting law and order. Along the way she made some false claims, as is typical of hosts on The View.
During an interview on Friday’s New Day with Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota falsely claimed that Democrats support extreme, late-term abortions so close to a woman’s due date, including comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) that have been seen by many as promoting infanticide.
2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar appeared on The View Friday and was largely handled with kid gloves. Only co-host Meghan McCain grilled the Democrat on her party’s radical support for abortion. But she was immediately saved from answering any hard questions on the matter from McCain’s liberal co-hosts.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch says that Elizabeth Warren doesn't have the "stuff" to beat President Trump. He suggests that Warren is too strident to be "digestible." Poor Donny was very clearly afraid of running afoul of Mika Brzezinski in particular and feminists and identity-politics fans in general. He knew the feminists think women are somehow punished by the liberal media, and lamented that this is where we still are in 2019.
