Conservatives & Republicans
MSNBC’s married morning hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were on ABC’s The View today to plug Mika’s new book and talk politics. The most mind-numbing part came when anti-Trump Scarborough, a former congressman who left the Republican party, gave advice to Republicans, as if he were still one of them.
In a softball interview with Jill Biden Tuesday morning, wife of former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, NBC’s Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie worried if President Trump was a “threat to the very essence of this country.” The anchor also fretted that Biden’s husband would be the victim of “nasty” attacks and invited her to label Trump a “bully.”
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough laughably claimed that “history has chosen” the Democratic Party to “defend the rule of law.” The same Democratic Party that excused Bill Clinton’s perjury in the 1990s and dismissed Hillary Clinton’s email scandal in 2016.
Following the GLAAD Media L.A. awards show in March, the gay entertainment lobby hosted another evening in New York City to ensure that several other of the culture’s most putrid influencers wouldn’t go without their LGBTQ advocacy trophies.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was on The View Monday where he was mostly grilled from the left on Trump’s relationship with Russia, immigration policies, and his rhetoric. Only one conservative question was allowed for the very end, but regardless, the former Navy SEAL held his own against the very hostile hosts.
Appearing on MSNBC Monday morning, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel repeatedly accused the Trump administration of trying to “provoke” Iran into some sort of conflict by sending an aircraft carrier group to the region. He and anchors for the liberal cable channel portrayed the U.S. as a bully getting in Iran’s face.
In a Sunday appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources, conservative thought leader and editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro and host Brian Stelter had a thoughtful discussion about where the media was failing when it came to discussing religion, conservatives, and President Trump.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during discussions of President Donald Trump and the Russia investigation, not only did MSNBC justice analyst Matthew Miller dismiss Republicans as being in a "right-wing coccoon" that is rewarded by Fox News for "bad behavior," but terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance likened Trump to the "evil" Darth Vader licking the boots of Vladimir Putin as the Emperor.
On Friday morning, as the networks informed viewers that Facebook has banned several controversial political groups and individuals from having an account, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MSNBC all failed to inform viewers that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been tied to the left, even while the same shows made a point of using terms like "far-right" to describe others affected by the ban.
The beauty of establishing three million plus politically correct rules to defend your weird fringe diversity interests is that you’ll never have a shortage of things to be angry about. Hollywood Reporter published an insipid collection of anecdotes from anonymous minority individuals complaining about fellow Hollywood staffers’ idiosyncrasies, and spun it as “10 pieces of advice to avoid missteps and marginalization on set and in meetings.”
Just minutes after the April jobs report was released Friday morning, showing the unemployment rate dropping to its lowest point since 1969, MSNBC fretted that the booming economy would be a serious political “challenge” for Democrats in 2020. Anchor Chris Jansing went to work trying to take credit away from the Trump administration and downplaying the numbers.
On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, during a discussion of Fox News reaction to Attorney General Bill Barr's testimony on the Mueller report, John Heilemann derided FNC host Sean Hannity as a "steaming, hot pile of Hannity" who is as "happy as a pig in ****" as the MSNBC national affairs analyst seemed annoyed at having to react to the conservative Fox News host's commentary.
