President Trump’s dangerous Twitter. That was the paper’s overriding obsession in Sunday’s edition. The enormous story launched on the top half of the front page and jumped to a special 10-page section, “The Twitter Presidency.” The timing is apt, considering the paper is pressuring Twitter to be better than Facebook and actually squelch political messaging as the 2020 campaign nears. One reason why Trump’s tweets are under attack was this line, which appeared in print over a graphic of 5889 little rectangle shapes representing Trump tweets (an undeniable wise use of time, energy, and ink): “Since he became president, the most frequent targets of his ire have been Democrats, investigations and the news media.”
If it seems like journalists have been excited about Beto O’Rourke for years, they have. The 2020 presidential candidate announced on Friday that he is dropping out after cratering, hovering at 2.1 percent nationally. This is despite fawning media coverage. A look back at his last campaign, a run for the U.S. Senate against Ted Cruz in 2018, finds puzzlement at lack of success.
Don't get Chuck Todd wrong: his heart is definitely in the right [i.e., left], liberal place about President Trump. On his MTP Daily show today, Todd made clear that he believes there is "damning" evidence against the president that supports his impeachment. But on a pragmatic political level, Todd expressed surprising skepticism about the wisdom of proceeding with impeachment, instead of letting voters decide at the ballot box in little more than a year.
On Thursday's Fox and Friends, co-host Steve Doocy took the time to show viewers an embarrassing piece of video from former Vice President Joe Biden not highlighted elsewhere in the media in which the Democratic presidential candidate admitted that he advised President Barack Obama against the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.
Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous on The View, the hosts spend a segment complaining about the President’s son’s Halloween costume as being insensitive to animals, on Friday’s show. The co-hosts also complained about a 2020 television ad put out by the President, which Joy Behar declared was full of paid actors “just like the ones who go to his rallies.”
The New York Times war against online political speech it disapproves of continues apace. Technology reporter Mike Isaac made the front of Tuesday’s Business section with “Dissent Erupts At Facebook.” The Times cleverly featured excerpts from a letter posted by “dissenting” Facebook employee, broadcasting their opposition to free political speech on the platform, in a large typeface within a graphic that took up the entire top of the front Business page in print. The message resonated even louder by being packaged within an ostensibly objective news story.
It's always interesting when people who tout the "people's right to know" decide to sit on information that they don't want the people to know. Jack Crowe and Tobias Hoonhout at National Review discovered a reporter who now works for The New York Times sat on public records which he obtained in April that cut against Elizabeth Warren's continuous claim that she was dismissed from a teaching job for being visibly pregnant:
The nation’s leading Spanish-language network is up to its old tricks- this time, with a softball interview of Dr. Jill Biden on the day of a vote to allow impeachment investigations to proceed in the U.S. House of Representatives, in which she comes out in support of Twitter's ban on political advertising.
The Washington Post celebrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s scheduled Halloween impeachment vote (ironic) as a fulfillment of an ongoing mission by liberal billionaire and 2020 Democratic Party primary candidate Tom Steyer since 2017. The Post’s adulatory Oct. 31 piece headlined “Power Up: A liberal fantasy no longer?
While 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris is not leading in any national polls or major fund-raising efforts, the California senator is ahead in a significant category for the Democratic Party: Hollywood celebrities, who have contributed $1.1 million to her campaign so far. As further proof that entertainment is wildly disconnected from people across the country, Pete Buttigieg -- the homosexual mayor of South Bend, Indiana -- is Hollywood’s second choice, with more than $922,000 coming from stars in the entertainment business during the third quarter of 2019.
While trying to receive holy communion at South Carolina’s St. Anthony Catholic Church, former Vice President and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden was denied by the church’s reverend, citing Biden’s support for abortion. The liberal media were once floored by Biden’s support for the Hyde Amendment but welcomed his buckle to political pressure and their radical demands. So, it’s no wonder ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored the religious rebuke of Biden.
At an Obama Foundation event on Tuesday, former President Barack Obama made headlines by denouncing the purity test his party had set up for their 2020 presidential candidates and called on the left to end their so-called cancel culture, which aims to ruin people’s lives with false activism. But none of the liberal broadcast networks heeded his call and omitted it from their morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday.
