Campaigns & Elections
House Democrats held a raucous hearing on Wednesday, where they hosted a radical leftist writer and other supposed luminaries to make the case for the federal government to pay African-Americans reparations as an apology for slavery. Despite the ridiculousness of having the people of today pay the price of something they had no hand in some 150 years ago, the liberal broadcast networks seemed all for it during their evening newscasts.
On Saturday, the South Carolina Democratic Party will be holding its 2019 convention, an prominent political event at which nearly every 2020 Democratic presidential candidate will speak. However, many media outlets will be shut out of providing live coverage of the significant campaign stop because state Democrats have given MSNBC a sweetheart deal to report exclusively on the convention.
On Wednesday, the network morning shows uniformly panned President Trump’s Tuesday night launch of his reelection bid in Florida, slamming the speech as “dark,” “scary,” and just rehashing the “same old grudges” against his “perceived enemies.” Reporters dismissed the event as just a continuation of Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Multimedia journalists beware, if you create a video about a candidate’s proposal without any opposing perspectives, that’s not news and your video will look like blatant advertising. That’s exactly what CNBC’s video about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her student loan plan looked like on June 14. It described Warren’s plan in detail, but only her details beginning with her words and citing others on her side.
Was Chris Matthews about to get another “thrill" up his leg? During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday, the MSNBC host got sentimental, dreamily reminiscing about Joe Biden’s time in the White House and his bromance with President Obama.
Looks like Morning Joe was really shaken by the massive, enthusiastic, crowd that turned out for President Trump's campaign kick-off rally in Orlando last night. Scrambling for something to counter the wave, the show settled on comparing the President to an old, fat Elvis going through the motions with his shtick. MSNBC's John Heilemann, sinking to a particularly ugly low, claimed Trump reminded him of Elvis "in Graceland, in front of like the six televisions, with a big, huge bottle of Quaaludes, and a bottle of vodka, and the shotgun."
The liberal media often suggest President Trump was the one with thin skin; just look at how they lionize Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s jabs at him. But during Tuesday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN proved themselves to be the ones with thinner skin when they cut away from Trump’s 2020 campaign launch rally in Orlando, Florida after the crowd started chanting “CNN sucks”.
If one only listened to the radical liberal media, then that person would think America was a despotic regime that only let rich and white people vote. All of it a deceitful narrative. But that was the “Big Idea” NBC Nightly News threw their weight behind Tuesday night when they sat down with failed Senate candidate and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke to discuss his plans for America. “And tonight in our series, My Big Idea, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke tells our Harry Smith about his vision to revolutionize voting in America,” touted anchor Lester Holt.
Apparently, the liberal media didn’t learn their lesson about too much trust in polls after President Trump’s major 2016 upset, because they’re still touting some (less than a year and a half out from the 2020 election) that show him down against Democrats.
There were some 2 million people crammed into downtown Toronto on Monday to celebrate the Raptors’ championship victory in the NBA finals, when shots rang out in an area containing roughly 60,000 people. Despite at least four people being shot and luckily no deaths, NBC Nightly News decided they didn’t have time to cover that story. But they did have time to promote Democratic New Jersey Senator and 2020 candidate Cory Booker’s “Big Idea” of baby bonds.
On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claimed Elizabeth Warren has had her [liberal] message "from the get-go, her entire life, her whole life." There's only one tiny problem: it seems that Warren was a registered Republican until . . . 1996, when Warren was 47 years old.
Keeping up its propaganda series to boost 2020 Democratic candidates, on Sunday, NBC Nightly News devoted the latest My Big Idea report to Washington State Governor Jay Inslee pushing radical climate change policies. Correspondent Harry Smith gushed over environmental crusader making it the “single focus” of his campaign.
