As part of the media-wide outrage at the racist yearbook photo and subsequent fallout involving Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), Saturday afternoon’s MSNBC Live seemed unsure whether to laugh or be outraged at Northam’s press conference in which he denied being in the racist photo, admitted to wearing blackface that same year, and almost did the moonwalk.
The tangled web of CBS journalists and Democrats continued on Monday as CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King, a “supporter” and “friend” of Cory Booker, interviewed the 2020 presidential candidate. CBS, this time, alerted viewers to the conflict of interest, something the network hasn’t done in the past. Booker is just the latest Democrat King has supported despite her supposedly neutral role as a co-host.
As far-left film maker Michael Moore made guest appearances this past week, on two occasions he spread provably false information as he wrongly claimed that a Fox News poll found that 70 percent of Americans support raising the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent as advocated by New York Democratic Congresswoman and self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, appearing on Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, he declared that he wished she could be the next Democratic presidential nominee.
At the start of last week, the liberal media had a nervous breakdown after former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced he was thinking about running for president as an independent. The liberal media was worried that he was doing to damage the changes for Democrats so they did what they could to beat up on him. They ripped into him so much, that during Sunday’s Meet the Press, on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was seemingly impressed he withstood it all.
There’s an old saying that goes: “If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.” That was apparently what Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington was thinking as a guest on Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC. Inslee has been in the news since last Friday for declaring an emergency over an outbreak of measles in the Evergreen State, and he attempted to use the same tactic against Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO who has stated that he might join the 2020 presidential contest as an independent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., defended her call for an “ultra-millionaires” annual wealth tax as “how the system is supposed to operate,” and “part of the social contract” of America in a CNBC interview.
Wait, since when did wealth redistribution and punishing the wealthiest by instituting a new tax to take $2.75 trillion away from them for what they’ve accumulated become part of the “social contract” of the U.S.?
Newly announced 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) made the media rounds Friday after several other Democrats threw their hats in the ring this week. Booker made his first stop at ABC’s The View, where he was pressed from the left by co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro. Co-host Meghan McCain however questioned Booker’s reputation for inauthenticity and grandstanding, to which the Democrat contested, saying he was “proud” of his shamefully partisan performance at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
After legislative moves in New York and Virginia to allow abortion far into the third trimester, accompanied by gruesome commentary in which proponents of the Virginia bill let slip that letting an infant die would be allowed both during and after delivery, the New York Times finally caught up with the caustic debate on Friday’s front page, under awful headlines, pro-abortion blandishments, and labeling bias. The Times reacted to those horrific comments with standard “Republicans Pounce” spin in reporter Vivian Wang’s “Republicans Seize on Late-Term Abortion as a Potent 2020 Issue.”
Along with California Democrat Kamala Harris, it’s becoming evident that, at this early moment in the 2020 presidential campaign, fellow Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has become a liberal media darling and that was on display on New Day moments after his Friday morning announcement. In a 12-minute stretch, CNNers marveled at the “energy” and “freshness” emanating from such a “force of nature” that “people want to touch.”
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday, aired early Friday morning, left-wing film maker Michael Moore promised viewers that if he ever ran for president his first agenda item would be “outlawing billionaires.” Asked about socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushing for a 70% marginal tax rate for the wealthy, Moore endorsed the radical proposal.
On the Thursday night/early Friday edition of the Late Night with Seth Meyers, NBC comedian Meyers spent more than five minutes essentially giving a commentary in which he mocked and lectured former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for criticizing Democrats and possibly threatening his former party's chances of defeating President Donald Trump.
Though Cory Booker has a long history of distortions and making things up, two of the three networks on Friday avoided this inconvenient fact while hyping the Democrat’s just-announced presidential bid. Only ABC’s Good Morning America mentioned Booker’s tendency towards “embellishing” the truth.
