During an interview with likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden, conducted on Monday and aired Tuesday morning on NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show, co-host Craig Melvin teed up the 2020 presidential candidate to criticize the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Missing from the softball exchange was any mention of Biden attacking the President’s China travel ban in January that has been credited with slowing the spread.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests, and John Heilemann emphatically agrees, that by criticizing vote-by-mail, President Trump is establishing a basis to refuse to accept the results of the election should he lose in November. Heilemann says: "If he loses the election, he will stand up and say, this election was rife with fraud. We had way too much vote by mail. I do not accept the results of the election."
Two New York Times stories on Monday took two entirely different angles on how the ideologies of the American left and right are faring in the era of the coronavirus. It’s clear which one the Times thinks has failed, from the front-page headline over Jim Rutenberg’s story: “Virus Battle Shreds the Right’s Political Playbook.” The text box: “Disdain for ‘Socialism’ Collides With Crisis,” including scare quotes, as if socialism isn’t now being pushed by the Democratic Party. Rutenberg’s piece was suffused with an undertone of gloating.
Liberal billionaire George Soros’s millions are still being used to exploit the coronavirus in an attempt to damage President Donald Trump’s chances for re-election. A new report by Advertising Analytics found that the Soros-funded lefty group Priorities USA Action’s ad “Hoax” again dominated the TV airwaves with a whopping 1,485 airings between March 28- April 3. This again makes the group the “top advertiser for the week” for the second week in a row. When reached for comment, Advertising Analytics said that “Hoax” has aired an outrageous 2,759 times total since March 24.
The network and cable networks have been silent on the sex abuse claims against Joe Biden by former staffer Tara Reade. As reported by the Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN avoided the allegations. Now, actress and #MeToo activist Rose McGowan is calling out a celebrity endorser of the former Vice President. In a tweet Monday afternoon, she spoke directly to liberal TV star Alyssa Milano.
On Friday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, Walter Isaacson, the former editor of Time magazine, interviewed Jon Meacham, the former editor of Newsweek magazine. At this time, Meacham poses as a pseudo-impartial historian, just as PBS poses as an unbiased channel of intelligent information. Isaacson preposterously suggested "I've never known your political orientation" before asking Meacham why he endorses Joe Biden.
MRC's Brent Baker tweeted out the lowlights of Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, socially-distanced but still socialist-inclined. Maher interviewed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and insisted Trump's coronavirus response is more of an impeachable offense than previous "trumped-up" causes like Russian collusion and using Ukraine to damage Joe Biden. Maher also cracked that Trump "isn't FDR or JFK, he's LOL."
Not long after they had insisted President Trump treated the coronavirus press briefings as though they were “a reality TV show,” ABC and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos invited former Vice President Joe Biden onto This Week to buoy his oxygen-less campaign. One of the softballs the Clinton lackey tossed to Biden encouraged him to blame Trump for the deaths caused by the coronavirus. While the crisis was only part of their discussion, Stephanopoulos steered clear of the recent sexual assault allegations against his guest. Something he was used to doing from his time in the Clinton White House.
On Wednesday's Tonight Show, NBC's Jimmy Fallon interviewed Biden and didn't ask a single tough question -- which no one who watches Fallon would expect. He tends to love-bomb whoever is booked. Fallon gushed to Biden that he was "so eloquent and beautifully spoken" at a TIME 100 gala they attended, and when Biden recited poetry on stage, "it was mind-blowing."
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign released a video in March deceptively depicting President Donald Trump calling the coronavirus a “hoax.” Twitter refused to label or take the video down, in accordance with its manipulated media policies.
On March 25, Tara Reade, a former employee of Senator Joe Biden, made a disturbing accusation about her old boss. She claimed in a podcast with Katie Halper of Rolling Stone that Biden sexually assaulted her in a secluded area of the Capitol in 1993, pushing her against a wall, kissing her and penetrating her with his fingers. Where's the story from the Brett Kavanaugh-crushing media?
While the first three months of 2020 were overloaded with news -- ranging from the impeachment of President Trump to the arrival of the coronavirus outbreak -- the liberal MSNBC “news” channel failed to attract new viewers and matched the same ratings from a year ago. The stagnation in numbers comes in stark contrast to the Fox News Channel, which gained 38 percent during the same period, and even the ratings-challenged CNN, which actually grew its numbers by a surprising 18 percent.
