The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday again seemed rather unconcerned by 2020 Democratic plans to end private health insurance. Reporter Ed O’Keefe offered little in the way of alarm over 150 million being thrown off their health plans, should Senator Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris get their way.
Not only did NBC debate moderators give California Sen. Kamala Harris extra time during its June debate, it turns out twelve executives from NBC Universal and parent company Comcast gave her campaign cash too. NBC was ready to crown Harris the victor after its two-night, Democratic debates June 26 and 27. In various programming the network heaped praise on the “breakout star,” calling her “brave” and “powerful.”
On Thursday, NBC announced that the next season of Will & Grace, the third of its revival and 11th overall, will be the last. The series’ final 18 episodes will be released mid-season in early 2020, offering the show the opportunity to get in some last parting shots at President Donald Trump, but not quite airing close enough to the election for its self-indulgent liberal lectures to serve as true campaign ads reminding Americans why Trump won.
In a segment dubbed “could it happen here”, Deutsch again played around with the idea that Trump was constructing Nazi Germany in our own backyards. “During last week's show two days after Trump's harrowing North Carolina rally, lowlighted by racial chants of ‘send her back’, we posed the question: Could it happen here? It’s nine days later and we're still asking the question,” he announced.
Jake Tapper had an elephant in the room in the form of Bernie Sanders on Sunday's CNN State of the Union and very noticeably avoided addressing his hypocrisy in slamming President Donald Trump for tweeting critically about the living conditions in Baltimore. In 2015, Sanders made very similar remarks as Trump about Baltimore, comparing it to a Third World country filled with hundreds of uninhabitable buildings.
In another organized effort by the liberal media to amplify their narrative about President Trump allegedly being a racist, CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” introduced a panel loaded with media folks from Baltimore in order to denounce the President, after a Twitter battle with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) about his district.
During Cuomo Prime Time Friday, a discussion on the battle for the African-American vote in the 2020 Presidential Election took place. As is the case with most conversations on race, it did not take long for the liberal on the panel and Cuomo himself to paint President Trump as a racist.
Senator Elizabeth Warren, a leading presidential candidate, warned on Monday that the next financial crises is on its way. Surprisingly that dire prediction was mocked by Politico's chief economic correspondent, Ben White, the same day on CNBC's The Exchange. Only a few days ago before, White had been giving Warren some praise by saying that Wall Street wouldn't be too worried about her as president. This contrast makes White's change in tone even more noteworthy.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos seems stunned at the percentage of Hispanic support for building the wall, based on a recent Univision-Latino Decisions poll. But such support would only come as a surprise to someone who is out of touch with the community.
On July 25, Variety released an interview with Jamie Bell about his role as a neo-Nazi in the movie Skin. The award-winning British Billy Elliot star who recently featured in the Elton John biopic Rocketman, gave his comments about the current state of racism in the world, believing that white supremacy has been emboldened by President Trump and saying, "Trump leaves me hopeless.”
The New York Times Thursday devoted two-thirds of its lead National section to reporter Trip Gabriel’s profile of...left-wing Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who is not even in the Democratic presidential race? Why: Well, according to the headline, “He’s Not in the Race for President, but He Sure Sounds Interested.” Now there’s some solid news judgment. "Many people besides senators continue to say they wish he were a candidate as well."
Pro-Democratic hackwork in Thursday’s New York Times: A deeply silly “selfie” story (not even involving actual “selfie” photos) from the campaign trail of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. A step-by-step graphic of just how Warren fans got their pictures taken with the great one herself took up two-thirds of a page of the ostensibly valuable print news section of the paper of record: “How to Get a Selfie With Elizabeth Warren.” It took three Times employees to carve out this hard-news reporting gem: Thomas Kaplain, Tamir Kalifa, and Eden Weingart. The tone was light and positive throughout.
