Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary and CEO Gerald Storch brought a free market reality check to Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) arguments for a $15 minimum wage on CNBC’s Squawk Box June 6. Sanders went to Arkansas to attack Walmart over wages and demanded at its annual shareholders meeting that it raise wages even more on June 5. O’Leary and Storch both opposed a wage mandate, saying markets do a better job of setting wages than the government.
Thursday, Joe Biden renounced his support for the Hyde Amendment, which restricts use of federal funds for abortion unless it’s in cases of incest, rape, or to save the life of the mother. This flip-flop should come as no surprise based on the radical leftist position on abortion, but for CNN New Day, it was because President Trump “shattered” the rules of politics.
Friday on The View, the liberal hosts took offense at the Wall Street Journal suggesting Joe Biden’s popularity in the 2020 race meant that Americans didn’t want a “far-left” Democrat. Joy Behar praised the virtues of liberalism while simultaneously denying Democrat policies were anything but “common sense.” Whoopi Goldberg even went out of her way to defend Democrats’ support for late-term abortion.
MSNBC on Friday celebrated the “major reversal” of 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden when it comes to abortion and his support for the Hyde Amendment. MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle hyped reporter Heidi Przybyla as being mostly responsible for the flip flop. Przybyla even used debunked information to warn of the dangers of abortion restrictions passing in several states.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has come under fire from the left and the media after he vocalized his support of the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment, which restricts the use of federal funds on abortions unless it’s in cases of rape, incest, and protecting the life of the mother. Thursday, CNN Newsroom ran a segment on the apparent controversy with CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and USA Today columnist Kristen Powers.
Democratic presidential front-runner, former Vice President Joe Biden gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal a big bear hug, with the release of his 22-page climate plan June 4. The Atlantic called it a “mini green new deal” and Biden claimed it will create around 10 million jobs while reducing U.S. net-emissions to zero by 2050. Sure. Business leaders have a very different opinion about the economic impact of a Green New Deal.
For NBC’s Thursday night report on Joe Biden's support for the Hyde Amendment, they treated it as though some dark secret from Biden’s past was revealed for the first time. “Now to a new uproar over abortion erupting today as Democratic candidates for president take aim at the early front runner, former Vice President Joe Biden amid a revelation about Biden's stance,” anchor Lester Holt announced as the network rushed to get Democrats on the record against the Hyde Amendment.
As if there weren’t enough liberals running for president, CNN senior editor Amanda Katz pulled another name out of the hat. Yesterday evening, Katz tweeted “Realistically, Bette Midler could never win the primary, but if she went head to head with Trump in the general he wouldn’t stand a chance.” At least she’s being realistic.
On Monday's Hardball and during a town hall with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, host Chris Matthews failed to make an obvious point of pushback when the Democratic presidential candidate talked up his plan to require national gun registration for all new purchases as a way of allegedly curtailing gun violence.
The women of ABC’s The View on Tuesday hit far-left Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell from the even farther left, quizzing the Congressman about taking the issue of gun control “out the hands” of politicians and into those who “are not beholden to the NRA.” They also demanded to know why Swalwell hasn’t, yet, come out for impeachment.
Anti-Trump California billionaire Tom Steyer leads the Need to Impeach “movement,” and Next Gen America political group. ABC wasn’t honest enough to make that clear for readers on June 1.
Instead, the network misled them by making it sound like two grassroots organizations were promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Nevermind that the same billionaire donor is behind both groups and is spending millions to make impeachment a reality.
Democratic presidential candidates had it super easy when they showed up for interviews on cable and network shows this past month. Candidates like Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Pete Buttieg were greeted by hosts who bragged about owning their campaign t-shirts and asked them hard-hitting questions like “are you too nice?” and “what can we do better” to help your candidacy? Those same news outlets trashed Donald Trump as “sociopath” whose rhetoric has ramped up a “body count” of dead children. The following are the most obnoxious moments of media bias over the last month.
