The nation’s leading Spanish-language network newscasts offered differing versions of the latest jobs report: one positive, the other negative. One network covers the jobs report fairly and objectively. The other, blinded by its anti-Trump animus, tells only half the story and finds a way to spin the report negatively.
Joe Scarborough: he's not just another liberal talking head anymore. Now he's a bona fide Democrat electoral strategist, offering advice on how Dems can rack up a big win in 2020 and defeat President Trump. On today's Morning Joe, Professor Eddie Glaude was beside himself. He told Joe "I don't know what to do," faced with people who listen to Fox News and buy into the "lies" of Republican politicians. Scarborough consoled/explained to Glaude: "What you do is you register, you get your friends to register to vote, you drive them to the polling booth, you have an election, and you win so convincingly like the Democrats did in 2018."
Billionaire businessman Tom Steyer claims he wants to be president. This means if he gets his wish, he will face strong congressional opposition for many of his policy proposals and conniving foreign adversaries. Accordingly his Monday appearance on MSNBC Live gave host Stephanie Ruhle the opportunity to ask Steyer how he would handle some of these challenges. Instead, Ruhle encouraged Steyer to take a victory lap on impeachment and to espouse their mutual dislike of Mitch McConnell and President Trump's tax policy.
Just like in 2016, the networks have done their best to ignore Democrat presidential candidate scandals and lies while harping on everything surrounding Donald Trump. After capitalizing on her grossly exaggerated Native American ancestry, frontrunner Elizabeth Warren has been caught in another lie, by her own words from twelve years ago. However, you wouldn’t know this if you only watched ABC, NBC or CBS.
Why would Republican appear on the "mainstream" Sunday shows? You could wonder after Sen. Ron Johnson was disgusted by moderator Chuck Todd's "very biased opening" segment on Meet the Press, and Todd openly fought with him and wouldn't let him finish a point as Johnson tried to tell Todd what he should ask John Brennan later in the show. Brennan received gooey sympathy.
This might sound like a sick joke—if not a Kafkaesque nightmare—but E.J. Dionne is actually complaining the MSM's impeachment coverage has been . . . too fair to President Trump. Appearing on Joy Reid's MSNBC show today [guest-hosted by Jonathan Capehart], Dionne began by approvingly citing WashPost media critic Margaret Sullivan's column, in which she claims that the MSM have not done "nearly enough" in pushing back against Trump surrogates. She demands: "the mainstream media must end its addiction to both-sides journalism." Dionne echoed that, saying: "there are moments in politics when one party has an interest in the truth, and the other party has an interest in falsehood. President Trump lies! It's not partisan for the media to be partisan toward the truth."
After speaking with two of President Trump’s Republican 2020 challengers (former Congressman Joe Walsh and former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford) on CNN’s State of the Union, host Jake Tapper went to one of Trump’s Democratic 2020 challengers, Senator Amy Klobuchar. His goal was to see if the Senator would commit to convicting Trump if the House voted to impeach the President.
“I would be acting as a juror,” Republican Senator Susan Collins (ME) explained to the press as to why she would not be prejudging President Trump ahead of a possible Senate impeachment trial. But that wasn’t a good enough reason, according to the way the folks on ABC’s Good Morning America were huffing on Sunday.
New York Times columnist David Brooks stacks the deck with the greatest of ease by putting words into the mouth of an imaginary Trump supporter during an imaginary interview with "Flyover Man." Why not a real interview instead of this fake news?
During her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson informed viewers that the Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was “furious” that the “media is even covering” any allegations of corruption against his son Hunter. Later in the day, fellow anchor Andrea Mitchell touted a reporter sympathizing with Biden about the “brutal” campaign.
The screencap in the chyron—Could Impeachment Inquiry Land Trump Associates in Jail?—made Joy Reid's strategy this morning very clear. To get Trump associates to flip against the President, try to panic them with the possibility of prison.
In this week’s edition of Real America with Jorge Ramos on Facebook Watch, Univision’s senior anchor elevates illegal immigration with the the nation’s historic civil rights struggles- thus attempting to establish a legal right to illegal immigration.
