For days now, NBC News has been running a series on NBC Nightly News called “My Big Idea” in which they give 2020 Democrats a chance to push their campaign propaganda with the network’s aid and largely unchallenged. Friday’s edition featured former Housing Secretary Julian Castro, who was demanding universal pre-K. And Saturday’s was about former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper who wanted yet another federal job training program.
Here’s the scene. President Trump gives an interview to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. George famously is the ex-Bill Clinton staffer. George poses a hypothetical to Trump. If he, the President, were offered information on an opponent by a foreign operator, would he take it? To which Trump replied, as per the Washington Post.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hit the campaign trail promoting “Democratic socialism” and claiming President Donald Trump supports “corporate socialism for the rich and powerful.” CNBC anchor Joe Kernen demanded clear definitions and answers from a Sanders adviser on June 13, attempting to learn whether democratic socialism would really mean more entitlements and government control.
If as Michael Kinsley once said, "a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth," Joe Scarborough committed a gigantic gaffe on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on a bill proposed by Dem Sen. Mark Warner that would have made it illegal for campaigns not to report offers of foreign assistance to the FBI, Scarborough said, "all we're doing is trying to stop Russians." "We're" doing? Yup, Scarborough, and his fellow Democrats.
In an exclusive softball interview with Anita Hill designed to clear the decks for Joe Biden about his handling of the Clarence Thomas hearings in 1991, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was eager to turn the conversation away from liberal complaints about the Democratic frontrunner to unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
As NBC Nightly News continued its monotonous drumbeat on Thursday to elevate liberal policy positions ahead of the Democratic debate they were holding, the network gave the megaphone to South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in order to push for abolishing the Electoral College.
Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.
President Trump made more headlines Wednesday night after he told ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be fine with taking “oppo research” on his 2020 opponent from foreign countries. This comment drew criticism. But during their almost two hours and 30 minutes of prime time coverage, or hair-on-fire panic, neither CNN nor MSNBC cared to mention that that’s exactly what the Clinton campaign did in 2016 with the now-infamous dossier.
On the June 12 edition of Hannity, media reporter Joe Concha of The Hill insisted the liberal networks are pushing impeachment because it would be good for their anemic ratings, and expressed amazement NBC is using Rachel Maddow as a debate moderator when four years ago, she hugged Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton after the debate ended. "Picture Shannon Bream or Martha MacCallum doing that to a Republican candidate, the apocalypse would look like nothing compared what the reaction would be."
Steven Colbert continued his streak Wednesday night of becoming the paramount late night host for Democratic primary candidates to speak with on the campaign trail press tour. Kirsten Gillibrand as well as Kamala Harris were given the royal treatment during their appearances on The Late Show, so it only makes sense the courtesy would be extended to Beto O’Rourke during his appearance on the show Wednesday night.
HBO host and liberal comedian Bill Maher has long claimed that he is “politically incorrect” even though his “jokes” and actions have shown he’s definitely a liberal Democrat. That hypocrisy was in full view while he was a guest on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time weeknight program on Monday, when he stated that “a lot of this far-left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism” and said that Trump supporters like the President in part because “he’s not politically correct.”
On Monday afternoon, CNN anchor Brianna Keilar led a discussion about the alleged weaponization of the word “socialism” against both Democrats and self-avowed “democratic socialists.” Former Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver launched into a tirade against President Trump, comparing him to the fascist leaders of the 1930s and alluded to Sanders being America’s knight in shining armor who will vanquish the evil “authoritarian” leadership of Trump. Keilar didn’t bat an eye.
