Amidst the amusing shout-outs to Hardball host Chris Matthews on the 20th anniversary of the show being on MSNBC, Thursday’s show provided a potpourri of nonsense in the form of two takes. One take pertained to fears that the public impeachment hearings won’t go as well as the left hopes and then the other comparedformer Attorney General Jeff Sessions to the ugly, racist George Wallace.
Journalists on Thursday’s network morning shows could barely contain their excitement over House Democrats announcing public impeachment hearings starting next week. Hosts and correspondents salivated over the political “drama” that would ensue when liberal lawmakers presented testimony against President Trump “in the most compelling way.”
Rather than subject herself to an actual news interview, on Thursday, shortly after the vote in Congress to formally endorse an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went directly to liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert to celebrate the radically partisan move. She was predictably treated to a hero’s welcome and even thanked Colbert for his supposed “patriotism.”
In what looked more like a dystopian episode of Sesame Street than serious news coverage, during the 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC hyped Democrats following the “ABCs of impeachment” to go after President Trump. Liberal talking points were followed to letter, literally, as the segment detailed all of Trump’s alleged impeachable offenses.
Twitter is reportedly engaging in a cover-up of a former Democratic congresswoman’s scandal that caused her to resign. The Daily Mail took a story that Red State’s Jennifer Van Laar first broke about Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) and ran it with a link in the story that led to graphic images of the politician with one of her staffers.
Do you enjoy internet memes featuring everything from superheroes to Spongebob? The House of Representatives voted to approve a new measure that could eradicate internet jokes which use copyrighted characters forever by threatening users with up to $30,000 fines.
On Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and her liberal journalist guests lamented the resignation of Democratic Party “rising star” and California Congresswoman Katie Hill amid a bizarre sex scandal. The discussion portrayed the liberal lawmaker as the victim of a “double standard” and even a “crime.”
The last couple of days have displayed the latest example of the liberal media having a freakout over President Donald Trump doing something that has also been done by Democrats in the past as the networks responded negatively to the President likening Democratic efforts to impeach him to a "lynching." After news came out that more than a half dozen prominent Democrats made similar comments as they defended President Bill Clinton from impeachment in 1998, the networks tried to downplay Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's own history while ignoring the other Democrats.
To show their frustration with the shady way House Democrats were conducting their partisan impeachment crusade, Senator Lindsey Graham (SC) led 41 other Republican Senators in writing a resolution demanding transparency and fairness. But ABC and NBC ignored and minimized their efforts while claiming congressional Republicans were actually angry with President Trump.
The liberal media love to document the fall of political rising stars; particularly those that involve sex scandals and Republicans. One of those prerequisites was not met Thursday evening, when CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News chose not to inform their viewers that Democratic “rising star”, Congresswoman Katie Hill (CA) was facing a Congressional Ethics Committee probe for having an affair with a female staffer. The only broadcast network to mention the scandal that evening was ABC.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Bianna Golodryga went negative on Republican members of Congress who decided to protest the House Democrats' secluded investigation of President Donald Trump over the Ukraine issue. Legal analyst Toobin declared that they looked like "such jerks," and global affairs analyst Golodryga dismissed House Republicans as a "bunch of white men."
During a contentious interview on MSNBC Thursday morning, Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz defended the move by House Republicans to demand transparency in the impeachment inquiry and hammered the liberal media for using “selective leaks” from Democrats to declare President Trump guilty without ever having seen public testimony from witnesses.
