Twitter apparently considers direct quotes from Bernie Sanders about Castro and Cuba too “sensitive” for some users to handle. A video posted by MRCTV, an arm of the Media Research Center, was censored as “sensitive content” by Twitter on Feb. 24.
On New Day, senior Bloomberg adviser Tim O'Brien said that Bernie Sanders had advocated that "toddlers should run around naked and touch each other's genitals to insulate themselves from porn." "What, what??!!" a shocked, astonished, and utterly gobsmacked Camerota exclaimed. But yeah, Sanders did say it, which Camerota would have known had she or anyone at CNN read articles about it at Mother Jones or the Inquisitr.
When apparent hoaxer Empire actor Jussie Smollett’s charges were controversially dropped last year for allegedly faking a hate crime incident, the twitter page for the Empire writers rubbed it in everyone’s faces.
During a press conference in New Delhi amid his India trip on Tuesday, President Trump had another run-in with CNN’s favorite liberal resistance reporter Jim Acosta. After the biased reporter hurled typically slanted questions, the President told him that he “ought to be ashamed” of having “the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews offered a mea culpa to 2020 Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders Monday night, after comparing his win in Nevada to the Nazis taking France in World War II. But the Hardball host did not feel the need to apologize to President Trump, or his family, for comparing them to Mussolini, Hitler, Sadam Hussein, or a whole host of other despicable dictators.
The First Amendment covers freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But what if someone’s religion does not allow homosexuality? Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” When the founder of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, posted on Facebook that he had a moral objection to Democratic candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his post was removed.
What in the world is Paul Krugman talking about? And yes, this is quite the evergreen take, but the New York Times columnist has done it again, folks. This time, he tweeted on Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders (I-VT) “is NOT a left-leaning version of Trump” or “a wannabe authoritarian ruler.” RedState's Sister Toldjah had a field day on Monday, recapping how this was only the latest bizarre insistence Krugman has offered during this 2020 cycle.
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
Liberal billionaire Warren Buffett, who’s been fairly quiet this election cycle, took to CNBC to weigh in on the Democratic primary races. As it turns out, even The Billion-Dollar King of Abortion found self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) too left-wing.
While The View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain have bonded in recent weeks over their dislike for Democrat 2020 candidates Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, on Monday's show, Hostin revealed she really blamed the “far right” Republican party for Sanders becoming the Democrat frontrunner.
As Bernie Sanders surges in the polls, journalists and media outlets are panicking at a possible general election loss. Now, conveniently, reporters see praising Fidel Castro and cheering socialism as a problem. On Sunday, 60 Minutes correspondent Anderson Cooper called out Sanders for cheering on dictators: “Back in the 1980s, Sanders had some positive things to say about the former Soviet Union and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. However, after President Trump held a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in July of 2018, the same broadcasts devoted 34 minutes to excoriating the meeting – and that was just in the first half hour of the respective shows.
