On Thursday, news broke that Israel would block Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country due to their calls for a boycott of the Jewish state. In response, MSNBC thought it was important to provide viewers with a supposed “fact check” claiming that the far-left lawmakers, who both have a history of anti-Semitism, didn’t “hate” Israel.
Project Veritas dropped a massive 950-page leak from Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies that showed how the company allegedly manipulates search results. Among the topics Google/YouTube manipulated were pro-life advocacy, questioning various terror attacks, and several political organizations including the Heritage Foundation. The August 14 leak also explained how the “Twiddler” system lets Google/YouTube workers rank search results based upon what the companies want emphasized or de-emphasized.
Alert! The good news continues to roll in for the Fox News Channel, which was the most-watched basic cable television network across total day and primetime viewing during the week of August 5-11, a feat FNC has accomplished for 31 consecutive weeks. In addition, the Hannity program at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7, delivered a 3.3 million total and 546,000 in the coveted demographic of viewers from 25 to 54 years of age. The milestone was an apparent result of the FNC host exclusively interviewing 2020 Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City.
Despite not having a firm, official count of those injured, the number of gunmen, the types of weapons used, or how the incident started in north Philadelphia, CNN’s The Situation Room engaged Wednesday in truly despicable behavior, using this attack on police officers to promote the need for gun control. They added that such incidents feel like the “new normal” and thus operating on emotion, not facts.
On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell adopted the unhinged talking points of 2020 Democratic candidates as she claimed that comments from Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli proved that Trump administration policies were “anti-Hispanic.”
All the gun control zealots out in full force last week have apparently gone to the beach. An alarming shooting took place at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in San Antonio on Tuesday. Local media reported that “multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials.” But the Second Amendment saboteurs were AWOL. Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Federal government workers are under literal fire for enforcing our immigration laws and protecting America.
There is discrimination of all sorts, and that includes racial discrimination. Thus, it's somewhat foolhardy to debate the existence of racial discrimination yesteryear or today. From a policy point of view, a far more useful question to ask is: How much of the plight of many blacks can be explained by current racial discrimination? Let's examine some of today's most devastating problems of many black people with an eye toward addressing discrimination of the past and present.
It could be said that faux Republican, CNN global affairs analyst, and Washington Post columnist Max Boot has lost his mind, but the reality is he hasn’t been cogent for awhile. Showing a Trumpian-like inability to take criticism, CNN gave Max Boot space Tuesday night to accuse National Review and former NewsBusters intern John Hirschauer of being....white supremacists?
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show on Monday, the question was whether it would be good political strategy, given President Trump's alleged racism, to accuse the Trump base of being racists for supporting him. Frank Figliuzzi, an Obama-era FBI official and NBC National Security Analyst, said such would be a mistake, because: "if you call Trump followers racist en masse, they simply coalesce around each other and become more defensive and protective of the leader, just as they would in, say, a terrorist organization."
On Tuesday, both ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning decried the Trump administration enforcing legislation passed over two decades ago that allows the government to take into account how much legal immigrants to the United States rely on public welfare programs when considering granting them citizenship. The network broadcasts immediately channeled liberal “outrage” over the supposedly “hardline” policy.
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has twice in one week put his brand of classless leftist vulgarity on display after a national tragedy, this time by using the El Paso massacre to accuse Republicans of being terrorists and white supremacists. “Useful Idiots And Trumpist Billionaires" used a Trump fundraiser by the owner of Equinox and SoulCycle to claim Trump is trying to raise a "white nationalist regime." Last week Krugman said "the G.O.P. has become a systematic enabler of terrorism."
On Tuesday, CBS This Morning was in awe of radical climate change activist Greta Thunberg, hailing the 16-year-old from Sweden as “the voice of the planet” and touting her plan to sail across the Atlantic to attend a United Nations climate summit in New York. The report particularly applauded Thunberg for scolding the United States and President Trump for not doing enough to stop global warming.
