al Baghdadi Dead
Like many of her CNN colleagues, CNN International and PBS host Christane Amanpour didn’t exactly have jubilant reactions Friday morning to the news of Qasem Soleimani's death via a U.S. airstrike. Instead, Amanpour did everything she could to rhetorically dismiss, question, and undercut the operation, taking shots at the U.S., hailing the French of possessing foreign policy chops, and tossing aside the killing of Osama bin Laden as inconsequential because bin Laden “was a forgotten, you know, nothingburger.”
The View’s Joy Behar has surpassed her co-hosts this year in making headlines for her outrageous comments on the ABC talk show. Whether it was wondering if Trump could trade places with a deceased terrorist or proposing Republican men get forcibly sterilized, Behar had no reservations sharing her hatred for conservatives. Here’s our list of her nastiest suggestions on The View from 2019.
Joining the ubiquitous collage of year-in-reviews from news organizations (including this one), weekday morning MSNBC Live host and NBC chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson offered one Thursday morning about the Trump presidency. Not surprisingly for a liberal network, it took one jab after another at the President. In contrast, Thursday's CBS This Morning had a more straightforward portion about Trump in their year-in-review look at 2019's top stories.
On Monday morning, CNN and MSNBC missed an easy lay-up that would have reinforced their love for America and our military. Instead, they refused to carry live the public portion of a White House event honoring Conan, the Belgian Malinois dog who became famous for their heroism during the October 26 raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In CNN’s case, the Jeffrey Zucker-led network’s hatred for Trump led them to not even acknowledge that the event took place during Inside Politics and since then (as of this blog’s publication).
Appearing Wednesday on the Fox Business Network, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Trish Regan on her eponymous prime time show that the liberal media have shown “such hypocrisy” on the Trump whistleblower. And in reacting to our latest study, Bozell ruled that they have put our “democracy...in peril” with their rampant, anti-Trump bias.
During the six weeks since the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry was announced, the liberal media have tried to help the cause by giving the effort wall-to-wall coverage, blasting the President with 96% negative coverage (even including criticism of his performance after the successful mission against ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi), even as they ignore how Trump’s policies have benefited the record-setting economy.
Following a week of the liberal media trying desperately to discredit America and President Trump’s win with the elimination of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the panel on Fox News’s MediaBuzz took them to task for being “stupid,” trying to make it a “glass-half-empty” situation, and hyperventilating about a meme.
A week after ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was eliminated in a raid by U.S. Special Forces at the order of President Trump, the liberal media were still desperately trying to discredit the President’s claim that the terrorist fled down a dead-end tunnel in fear while “crying” and “whimpering.” They were so reluctant to give Trump a W that CNN was defending al-Baghdadi’s reputation from Trump’s description.
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.
In a segment that was mocked by my equal over at Mediaite, the Fox News Channel’s The Five led off Thursday’s installment by brutally mocking the liberal media as “continu[ing] to win the brain dead Olympics” and prove that they’re “not that smart” as evidenced by their ludicrous fact-checking of a Daily Wire meme the President tweeted of himself with the now-famous military service dog Conan.
The media, who is so eager to bash President Trump at every turn they can’t even give him credit when he kills a murderous terrorist, also can’t seem to take a joke. Wednesday morning, Trump retweeted an obviously photoshopped image, of himself placing the medal of honor around the canine who chased down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the raid in which he was killed. The medal had a dog paw on it and was made by conservative outlet The Daily Wire.
Not surprisingly, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough found plenty to complain about in President Trump’s speech announcing the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, Scarborough complained about how "the President of the United States went on talking about how Baghdadi died like a ‘dog, a coward...whimpering and sniveling.’” According to Scarborough, President Trump’s word choice made him sound more like two late Middle Eastern dictators than the President of the United States.
