On Friday's The Lead on CNN, fill-in host Dana Bash led a discussion of whether Ginni Thomas -- the wife of conservative U.S Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas -- is expressing too many "far-right" political views on venues like Facebook. Between Bash's introduction and the setup piece by correspondent Jessica Schneider, her views were referred to as "far-right" twice on a network that rarely describes liberals as "far-left."
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, during a discussion of the Pittsburgh synagogue attack, host Ayman Mohyeldin repeatedly tried to get Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer to criticize President Donald Trump for allegedly using "dog whistles" that might have encouraged more anti-Semitism. Dermer praised Trump, pointed out that anti-Semitism exists on both the far left and far right, and called out the media for mostly ignoring the recent anti-Semitism of Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan.
Viewers of Dick Wolf’s Law & Order spinoffs knew better than to expect anything original when it came to his new show on CBS, FBI. Sure enough, it didn’t take very long at all for the old tired liberal TV tropes to appear on the September 25 series pilot.
In the last couple of days, FNC's Fox and Friends has given attention to the far-left violent group Antifa -- which is sometimes defended by the liberal media -- who have a history of making attacks on not only mainstream conservatives but also on the dominant left-leaning media.
On Sunday, Washington, D.C. was all but shut down as roughly 25 white supremacists emerged from whatever crevasses they hide in, and marched to Lafayette Park on the anniversary of last year’s deadly rally in Charlottesville. They were dwarfed by hundreds of counter-protesters, violent agitators, and members of the press. CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon had much to say on the matter.
Over the past several days, during discussions of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville from a year ago, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson went off the rails again as he not only defended the far-left group Antifa's hostility to cops, but he even suggested that police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, responding to the 2014 riots could be likened to white nationalists attacking blacks.
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
Liberal director Spike Lee took advantage of an interview on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360 to promote his new movie, BlacKkKlansman, which the filmmaker claimed is “not just a history lesson” even though it takes place during the 1970s.As you might expect, it didn’t take long for the discussion to degenerate into attacks on GOP President Donald Trump, whose “toxic” comments and acts have led Lee to refer to him as “Agent Orange,” a man who is leading “a rise to the right” not just in America, but worldwide as well.
According to Chuck Todd, booing and nasty language towards reporters could well lead to the killing of journalists. Specifically, he compared a Trump rally this week to the horrific car killing (and injuring of multiple others) by a racist white nationalist in Charlottesville. Todd began by lecturing his MTP Daily viewers on Wednesday: “Tonight, I'm obsessed with how we're no longer obsessed over the things President Trump says.”
Over several days since Thursday, the same MSNBC that ignored reports of some Democratic members of Congress having ties to Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, have been working in overdrive to highlight a handful of white supremacist political candidates who are running for office as Republicans but most likely will never be elected.
On Wednesday's Hardball on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump complaining about there being a double standard in ABC punishing Roseanne Barr, with liberals like Keith Olbermann and Jemele Hill being tolerated after incendiary tweets, New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson slammed Trump as a "bigot-in-chief" who has made America into a "psychic commode into which he dumps all of his nasty beliefs."
Why Hollywood directors feel the need to levy their judgment on the current state of politics is anyone’s guess. Somehow the elite feel that wealth and media exposure gives them a virtuous pulpit to preach from.
