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.
The third installment of NBC’s so-called “Big Idea” series, which they already admitted was designed to only help Democratic 2020 candidates, featured floundering New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and her bid to implement a national paid family leave program.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor/Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan openly speculated whether President Trump has told the CIA to not carry out covert operations or compile intelligence against North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and that he would willfully accept help from the Russians to get him reelected.
After Tuesday’s ABC and CBS evening newscasts seized on a new Quinnipiac University poll showing Joe Biden and other 2020 Democratic contenders defeating President Trump in hypothetical match-ups for a general election still 18 months away, on Wednesday morning, NBC was eager to catch up to the hype.
On CNN's New Day, New York Times reporter and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said "Joe Biden's core strength is his decency," and claimed the Trump campaign is "having a very hard time figuring out how to attack that." We'll leave on the table whether the Avenatti-Stormy Network has the credentials to talk about anyone's "decency." But Haberman's phrasing is strange. Trump doesn't have trouble "figuring out" how to attack anyone. Maybe liberal reporters think the punches won't land, but he's going to punch.
Once the DNC announced it would not permit Fox News to moderate any debates for the 2020 Democratic primary, it was obvious liberal media bias would be on full display during the campaign. As of recently, it was decided not only will MSNBC be hosting the first debate, but Rachel Maddow will be one of the moderators. On Tuesday, Maddow appeared on Late Night with Seth Myers, aired early Wednesday morning, to weigh in with her thoughts on the upcoming debate.
The hosts at The View blasted President Trump Wednesday, for calling Democrat candidate Joe Biden “slow” and claiming he didn’t have the fortitude to make it on the campaign trail. That led to an entire segment of the hosts ragging on Trump for spreading "health conspiracy theories," which is too rich, coming from the same people who spread their own health conspiracy theories about Trump all the time.
Joe Scarborough: not just an MSNBC host anymore. Now a Biden campaign adviser . . . On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski reads from Scarborough's Washington Post column of yesterday, in which he counseled Joe Biden to stick to his script. The column, read by Mika, included this line: "If you think I am trying to send Biden a message with this column, you are correct. Too much is riding on next year’s election for any Democratic candidate to shoot from the hip rhetorically."
As NewsBusters reported Monday night, NBC News has launched a new report series dedicated to promoting the “big ideas” put forward solely by Democratic 2020 candidates ahead of the debates in a few weeks. Tuesday’s edition followed California Senator Kamala Harris as she campaigned in South Carolina to jack up the death tax to pay for an increase in teacher salaries.
With almost a year and a half to go until the 2020 general election, Tuesday’s editions of ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News showed that the media didn’t learn anything from 2016. Nearly two weeks ahead of the first Democratic Party debate, both broadcast networks boasted about former Vice President Joe Biden’s 13-point national lead against President Trump.
On Tuesday, NBC News announced its moderators for the pair of Democratic debates scheduled for June 26 and 27 on NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo. Predictably, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie, and Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart were all named. However, in addition to the journalists, left-wing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow somehow also made the cut.
