On Wednesday, the network morning shows uniformly panned President Trump’s Tuesday night launch of his reelection bid in Florida, slamming the speech as “dark,” “scary,” and just rehashing the “same old grudges” against his “perceived enemies.” Reporters dismissed the event as just a continuation of Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Multimedia journalists beware, if you create a video about a candidate’s proposal without any opposing perspectives, that’s not news and your video will look like blatant advertising. That’s exactly what CNBC’s video about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her student loan plan looked like on June 14. It described Warren’s plan in detail, but only her details beginning with her words and citing others on her side.
Was Chris Matthews about to get another “thrill" up his leg? During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday, the MSNBC host got sentimental, dreamily reminiscing about Joe Biden’s time in the White House and his bromance with President Obama.
Looks like Morning Joe was really shaken by the massive, enthusiastic, crowd that turned out for President Trump's campaign kick-off rally in Orlando last night. Scrambling for something to counter the wave, the show settled on comparing the President to an old, fat Elvis going through the motions with his shtick. MSNBC's John Heilemann, sinking to a particularly ugly low, claimed Trump reminded him of Elvis "in Graceland, in front of like the six televisions, with a big, huge bottle of Quaaludes, and a bottle of vodka, and the shotgun."
Like other primetime hosts at MSNBC, Lawrence O’Donnell spends most of the time during his Last Word weeknight program slamming President Trump as guilty of committing treason and therefore deserving immediate impeachment. Of course, it came as no surprise that he used an interview with The Hollywood Reporter website and magazine to assail the GOP occupant of the White House as “illiterate” and having no ability to handle complexity.
An old adage states: “If you’re in an argument with someone and you compare that person to Adolf Hitler, you just lost the debate.” Apparently, no one told CNN Tonight host Don Lemon about this idiom because he enthusiastically compared President Trump to the Nazi dictator on Tuesday evening in what Cuomo Prime Time anchor Chris Cuomo accurately described as a “very extreme example.”
The liberal media often suggest President Trump was the one with thin skin; just look at how they lionize Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s jabs at him. But during Tuesday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN proved themselves to be the ones with thinner skin when they cut away from Trump’s 2020 campaign launch rally in Orlando, Florida after the crowd started chanting “CNN sucks”.
If one only listened to the radical liberal media, then that person would think America was a despotic regime that only let rich and white people vote. All of it a deceitful narrative. But that was the “Big Idea” NBC Nightly News threw their weight behind Tuesday night when they sat down with failed Senate candidate and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke to discuss his plans for America. “And tonight in our series, My Big Idea, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke tells our Harry Smith about his vision to revolutionize voting in America,” touted anchor Lester Holt.
The pandering depths to which presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand will sink are so hilariously low that even a left-leaning publication such as Atlantic magazine finds it impossible to avoid her desperation. We can see that Gillibrand stands out even in a large field of Democrat candidates noted for going into extreme pander mode.
Even though the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have championed some of the most radical policy proposals ever seen in American politics, the vast majority of this year’s coverage (202 stories, or 92%) has failed to include any ideological label. Instead, reporters have eagerly touted adjectives describing the candidates’ race, gender, ethnicity and sexual identity, applauding the group as “crowded and diverse,” “historically diverse,” and the “most diverse” group ever to run.
Apparently, the liberal media didn’t learn their lesson about too much trust in polls after President Trump’s major 2016 upset, because they’re still touting some (less than a year and a half out from the 2020 election) that show him down against Democrats.
On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claimed Elizabeth Warren has had her [liberal] message "from the get-go, her entire life, her whole life." There's only one tiny problem: it seems that Warren was a registered Republican until . . . 1996, when Warren was 47 years old.
