Conservatives & Republicans
While the liberal media all went wild over Time magazine’s latest photoshopped cover depicting an aloof President Trump towering over a crying immigrant child, on Friday, only CBS This Morning took the time to correct the record and explain how “misleading” that doctored image was. Unlike NBC or ABC, the broadcast network actually sought out the Border Patrol agent who first encountered the child and her mother, explaining that the two were not separated.
Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. Friday morning, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called on liberals to denounce the effort by the “radical left” to “censor” and “destroy” any media figure who supports, or even just shows kindness toward, President Trump.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin Thursday afternoon, journalist and presidential historian Jon Meacham lamented that Donald Trump’s presidency was “nasty, brutish, and longer than we would like.” He went on to wail that press was giving the president too much attention and becoming a victim of “the longest abusive relationship in American history.”
President Trump signing an executive order on Wednesday to stop the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border was greeted Thursday morning by broadcast networks and cable news channels hailing the latest cover of Time magazine, which savaged Trump by using an altered image to portray him as indifferent to a crying young child.
Appearing on Wednesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC anchor Savannah Guhtrie assured her colleague that she was “trying to stay as fair-minded and neutral” as possible in her coverage of the Trump administration’s immigration policy. That pronouncement came in the wake of Guthrie’s Today show repeatedly touting video earlier that morning of left-wing activists screaming profanity at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows promoted video of left-wing protesters shouting profanity at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen while she was trying to have dinner at Washington D.C. restaurant Tuesday night. The footage was provided to the liberal media by the radical political group itself, the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America.
Chief Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes presented what was pitched as a CBS News investigation into state-level attorneys general who were getting a little too cozy with corporate lobbyists. But in reality, it targeted primarily Republican AGs while giving Democratic ones what amounted to a free pass. A double standard if ever there was one.
After cable news channels CNN and MSNBC made 22 references to Nazi concentration camps and other human rights atrocities during coverage of illegal immigrant detention centers along the U.S. southern border over the past few days, on Tuesday, NBC decided to join in touting the extreme rhetoric. Specifically, the Nazi death camp comparison was repeated four times in three hours, across two of its morning shows.
The liberal media’s shrill condemnation of President Trump’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy reached a fever pitch on Monday as the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated massive amounts of time to hyperbolic assertions about the issue. The coverage from NBC Nightly News was arguably out of control seeing as anchor Lester Host asked a Border Patrol agent if he understood he was "the bad guy."
During interviews on both NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today and CBS This Morning on Monday, Barack Obama’s former communications director Dan Pfeiffer was treated to numerous softball questions that allowed him to promote his new book, political podcast, and blast the Trump administration.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC was again spreading misinformation on the Ohio voter purge law which requires registered voters to either vote at least once every six years, or at least respond to an address verification inquiry through the mail, in order to remain registered to vote. But -- as MSNBC has previously done -- a panel discussion heavily suggested that voters would lose their right to vote after just a couple of years of nonvoting, threatening the voting rights of those who only vote every four years in presidential elections.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused former FBI director James Comey of resenting Attorney General Loretta Lynch for being a "black woman boss," and then went on to accuse Trump administration members of being "terrorists" who "terrorize people into leaving the country" to promote "white nationalism."
