Conservatives & Republicans
The CBS Evening News targeted GOP state Senators in Oregon for ridicule and scorn Tuesday night, after some went into hiding and others fled the state in order to block a vote on a controversial climate change bill. In a video call with one Senator, CBS correspondent Carter Evan wondered: “What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of democracy?”
The liberal media loathe President Trump and his supporters to a degree that is impossible to deny. The constant chastising of the President as well as the voters across the country who elected him to office grows more draining by the day. Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Fox News Saturday night to discuss the hostile coverage of President Trump’s Florida rally launching his reelection bid earlier in the week.
Throughout NBC Nightly News’s two-week-long propaganda project for the 2020 Democratic field ahead of the first debate, a couple of the candidates actually suggested some half decent and probably generally supported ideas: fighting drug addiction and ending the practice of regime change overseas. These ideas tend to transcend party. So much so that these were actually ideas that President Trump supported.
The front page of Sunday’s New York Times featured Denver-based national correspondent Julie Turkewitz demonstrating hostility to private property and the dismayingly conservative billionaires who own it in “As Billionaires Snap Up Open Land in West, Public Is Fenced Out." She sounded skeptical about this odd "private property" concept: "These new buyers have become a symbol of a bigger problem: The gentrification of the interior West....The concept of private property is embedded in the nation’s framework, and many large landowners cite this as the foundation for their holdings."
President Trump reportedly called off last weekend’s planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids as part of a strategy to ratchet up the pressure on congressional Democrats to change the country’s asylum laws. But Monday’s evening newscasts of ABC and NBC gave the credit to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) because she claimed she told the President he was “scaring the children of America” with the raids.
On Monday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie talked to the cast of Showtime’s The Loudest Voice about their “damning portrayal” of late Fox News chief Roger Ailes in the new series. Guthrie’s disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer and NBC’s questionable handling of his years of alleged sexual harassment wasn’t mentioned during the lengthy segment.
Ex-Republican and Washington Post columnist George Will appeared on The View Friday to promote his book and do the only thing right-leaning commentators are invited on television to do: bash President Trump and his supporters. Will got right to that, comparing “Trump Republicans” to cockroaches that had infested the party, to the friendly hosts. However, the tables turned quickly in the second half of the interview, as the liberal hosts attacked him for being against reparations.
Now-ex-staffer Jackson Cosko was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday on five felony counts. And in over 24-hours since the sentencing, none of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) covered it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony, calling him a “kook” elevated to “metaphysical status” within the Republican Party. He ridiculed Laffer’s theory as “provably untrue” and based on a “fake curve.”
For years on end, conservatives across the country have been forced to endure relentless, hateful smears directed at themselves, the President and basically anyone who is not a Democrat. Congressional Republicans are often a target for the far-left late night hosts. On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late- night liberal sherpa, Jimmy Kimmel, had the gall to criticize those Republicans in Congress for asking their Democrat peers to use respectful language when speaking of the President.
During an interview with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for the Third Hour Today show on Thursday, NBC reporter Sheinelle Jones grilled the prominent African American Republican on whether race relations were “worse” under President Trump. Rice immediately rejected the notion and called on the press to knock off the “hyperbole” in its coverage.
House Democrats held a raucous hearing on Wednesday, where they hosted a radical leftist writer and other supposed luminaries to make the case for the federal government to pay African-Americans reparations as an apology for slavery. Despite the ridiculousness of having the people of today pay the price of something they had no hand in some 150 years ago, the liberal broadcast networks seemed all for it during their evening newscasts.
