On Thursday's New Day on CNN, before a debate with Tim Schmidt of the Concealed Carry Association over whether the Second Amendment is in danger, host Chris Cuomo tried to bolster Second Amendment critic and liberal former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens by claiming that he was appointed by President Ronald Reagan when, in reality, he was appointed by President Gerald Ford -- a Republican President known for being less than conservative and actually a primary opponent to the more conservative Reagan.
On Thursday, shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he would not appoint a second special counsel, CNN's Jeffrey Toobin agreed with the decision, claiming that "as far as I could tell, most of the accusations against the FBI are lunatic conspiracy theories." That would lead one to question why Toobin didn't complain about having an inspector general and federal prosecutor John Huber look into these matters. The fact is that there is enough evidence of a conspiracy and coverup to justify some form of inquiry — and Toobin, in his heart of hearts, should know that.
On Thursday, both online and on MSNBC, NBC News unskeptically relayed bogus claims by the liberal Center for American Progress that the House Intelligence Committee's decision to end its Trump-Russia collusion investigation was negligently premature.
On Monday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, host Brian Williams ended the show with a commentary in which he gushed over the anti-gun students who spoke at the March for Our Lives rally, and then lamented that conservative CNN political commentator Rick Santorum might have ruined the day for its supporters by recommending that students take CPR classes, try to combat bullying in their schools, and be more proactive in their own schools instead of demonstrating for more gun control.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC anchors and pundits were in full panic mode over the news that the Commerce Department was planning to add a question about citizenship status to the 2020 census. Hour after hour, the move was blasted as “racist,” “illegal,” and even predicted to cause a public health crisis. From 9:00 a.m. ET to 3:00 p.m. ET, the liberal cable channel’s coverage of the topic was 90% negative.
On Monday afternoon, NBC national correspondent and sometimes MSNBC anchor Peter Alexander went beyond simply giving a forum to anti-gun activists to promote their views, but he encouraged MSNBC viewers to go to their website and sign a contract promising to vote for anti-gun candidates.
On Monday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota finally conducted an interview with liberal gun control activists in a manner that didn't simply give them a forum to push their agenda and make incendiary comments about the NRA and Republicans, but actually spent several questions challenging them for demonizing their opponents. And, over the weekend during live coverage of the March for Our Lives rally, Camerota admitted that she had "mischaracterized" Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's response to the Parkland school shootings.
The fashion magazine Vogue's newest political feminist heroine is California’s ambitious new liberal Democratic senator, and Vogue made the most of their access to push her as the next president (and first female president). Abby Aguirre tries hard to convince us of Harris’s commanding (yet also stylish) presence in black pearls and stillettos, in classic Vogue style: "Harris's political career -- seven years as district attorney in San Francisco and then another six as attorney general of California -- amounts to an extraordinary run of firsts."
Sunday’s New York Times lead story on the multiple rallies of anti-gun kids was reported by Michael Shear and a teeming throng of at least 19 other reporters around the world: “With Passion and Fury, Students March on Guns – Rebuke of N.R.A. by Huge Crowds Across U.S.” This would be the anti-gun March for Our Lives, not the pro-life March for Life, which the Times virtually ignores every year. Almost the same with the paper’s reluctant, hostile coverage of Tea Party protests. But this anti-gun rally received several thousands words in the paper’s lead slot.
On Saturday night, during special coverage of the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally on CNN, host Erin Burnett displayed a classic example of the media double standard on guns in which a guest who supports gun rights gets debated on the issue, but guests who support more control have their liberal views unchallenged or even further pressed from the left.
The infamously Democrat-friendly New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse visited retired Sen. Harry Reid for a friendly debriefing. Hulse let the deeply partisan Reid conveniently lay in against his former Republican colleagues and President Trump, with no opposition, in “Senator’s Farewell: ‘I Just Shake My Head.'”
On Saturday afternoon, during live coverage of the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally in D.C., CNN law enforcement analyst James Gagliano cited a discredited poll claiming that 97 percent of Americans want "universal background checks" while stating that he was "getting chills" from being at the National Mall where so many historic events in American history took place.
