On Morning Joe, James Carville claims that the Democrat party is "the only thing standing between the United States and the abyss." He says that if the Democrats nominate Bernie Sanders, it will go the disastrous way of the Corbynite British Labour party and it will be the "end of days."
This week, the world marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Allied forces during World War II. Politicians of all stripes dutifully tweeted, “#NeverAgain.” Meanwhile, many of those same politicians continued to forward the worst sort of anti-Semitism, blithely ignoring the fact that anti-Semitism isn't a relic of the past but a thriving part of the present.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show finally began taking the subject of media bias seriously – at least when it comes to British tabloid coverage of their favorite royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Lacking the slightest amount of self-awareness, hosts complained that the royals “weren’t covered fairly in the press” and subjected to a negative media “narrative” in the U.K.
New York Times reporter Liam Stack joined the mob against Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling for transgender wrong-think on Thursday. The headline deck was indeed stacked against Rowling: "J.K. Rowling Criticized After Tweeting Support for Anti-Transgender Researcher -- Ms. Rowling expressed support for a researcher whose views on transgender people were condemned by a court on Wednesday as ‘incompatible with human dignity.’" Stack’s reporting is notoriously snarky and slanted, even in the context of the Times, and his take on Rowling’s bow to basic biology aligned with her knee-jerk critics on Twitter. He put Rowling on defensive in the lead[.]
“Blowout” was how one UK newspaper described the decisive victory of Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party in last week's election. How decisive was it? Not only did conservatives win an 80-seat majority in Parliament, a constituency in Blythe Valley in Northeast England elected a conservative member for the first time since its creation 40 years ago. Pundits leading up to the election were wrong, as usual. They predicted a very tight race.
On Morning Joe, Edward Luce of the UK's Financial Times says if Bernie Sanders were the Democrat candidate, that unlike Jeremy Corbyn, he "wouldn't have the whiff of anti-Semitism about him." Donny Deutsch says that—a recent poll notwithstanding—neither Sanders nor Elizabeth Warren would "come close to beating Donald Trump."
Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the deluded duo of former journalists behind Fusion GPS, the Democratic opposition research group responsible for the discredited “dossier” from British spy Christopher Steele, has put out a calling card for business in Great Britain: “Britain needs its own Mueller report on Russian ‘interference.’” Simpson and Fritsch, who helped snarl Donald Trump and his staff in years of bad-faith investigations, may be aiming for new political markets now that the U.S. establishment has belatedly gotten wise after a devastating Inspector General report.
On Thursday night, conservatives worldwide were able to relive feelings of jubilation and bask in liberal meltdowns from 2016, thanks to exit polls predicting a Conservative Party landslide in the United Kingdom’s latest General Election. Unfortunately, the liberal U.S. broadcast networks didn’t take it well. In particular, the worst such individual was NBC News foreign correspondent Bill Neely, refusing to mention the following in his hideous NBC Nightly News segment: Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party, their anti-Semitism, and their far-left proposals.
Britain was just hours away from finding out the results of its latest Brexit-contested prime ministers race on Thursday. Both ABC and CBS covered the fight between Conservative Boris Johnson and far-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. But CBS ignored the ugly charges of anti-Semitism that have followed Corbyn and his party. On ABC’s Good Morning America, reporter James Longman at least noted, “Opposition Jeremy Corbyn has had his own issues, dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism in his Labour Party and unwilling to make public his own position on Brexit.”
In the latest entry in the New York Times’ increasingly shameless attacks on Brexit, the Conservative Party in Britain, and those who voted to leave the European Union. Patrick Kingsley reported for the front of Sunday’s paper, “A Brexit Road Trip, With Disunity at Every Stop.” Kingsley pined for the days of coal mines, an odd position for an environmental paper to take. But the sudden concern for coal miners was just another cynical weapon to attack Brexit, Margaret Thatcher’s free-market efforts, and conservatism in general.
World leader and queen of the mean girls, Justin Trudeau has got lefty tongues wagging over video of his alleged gossip about President Donald J. Trump during this week’s NATO summit. And even though Trudeau is an effete, blackface-wearing hypocrite, celebrity twitter heralded his behind-the-back antics as some heroic Trump takedown. Of course this is the pettiest news of the year, but then again, this is both Canada and Hollywood we’re talking about.
Showing that its Boris Johnson-bashing tradition will be upheld through the British elections December 12 (in which he is currently favored to prevail), Tuesday’s New York Times found a way to use the latest London Bridge terror attack to put Conservative Party Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the defensive in “For Johnson, a Week of Courting Allies and Hosting Sometimes Rivals.” Reporters Mark Landler and Benjamin Mueller checked attacks by Boris Johnson against his left-wing opponents in the Labour Party, especially leader Jeremy Corbyn.
