Covert Liberal Activists
Broadcast news networks have vocally opposed the President’s border wall since he first discussed the idea during the 2016 election. While the proposed wall has returned to the spotlight thanks to the ongoing government shutdown, the media’s hostility towards it is nothing new.
Thursday was day six of the government shutdown and President Trump took a swipe at Congressional Democrats in a tweet by asking: “Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?” It was a statement many in the liberal media claimed was said with no evidence. But During CBS Evening News, when they were reading tweets from furloughed folks angry with Trump, those they cited were all Democrats.
Over the past 10 days, journalists on CNN and MSNBC have dutifully repeated the Democrats’ claim that “the walls are closing in” around President Trump. Cable hosts and their guests have used this precise verbiage a total of 50 times since December 10 – and that’s not including the instances in which Democratic politicians repeated the assertion on TV.
A Fox News host is once again the target of a left-wing advertiser boycott campaign and this time it’s prime time host Tucker Carlson. And as the liberal media often do, tey throw fuel onto the fire. During Wednesday’s edition of CBS Evening News, correspondent Jericka Duncan promoted the boycott and singled out the companies who had yet to pull their ads from Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Longtime presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was a guest on the Monday edition of CBS's The Late Show, and liberal host Stephen Colbert peppered her with questions about former occupants of the White House, especially her favorites: Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson (whom she worked for in the White House). Of course, most of the discussion focused on using history to slam Donald Trump, with the host going so far as to ask his guest which of “her guys” she’d want to "take on" the current Republican president.
Over the weekend HBO premiered their new pro-migrant propaganda film. Titled Icebox, the HBO original is about a 12 year-old Honduran who is apprehended for illegally crossing the border and forced to languish in a child detention center. And of course, the media has taken the bait and praised the film for its personal look on how immigration law is ruining young lives, calling HBO’s portrayal a “public service.”
Asked by Spanish newspaper El País on whether he prefers either the newly elected conservative President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, or President Trump, Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos did not hesitate to slam both leaders. The leading liberal activist-anchor in U.S. Spanish-language media called both Trump and Bolsonaro “fascists” who must be “strongly rejected.”
Morning Joe introduces Lauren Leader as the founder of a "non-partisan" organization. She proceeds to call on the military to disobey Commander-in-Chief Trump's orders on protecting the border from illegal entry.
On Saturday afternoon, CNN Newsroom gave attention to a Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma surgeon who has been criticizing the NRA, but the liberal news network, even while interviewing him, did not divulge that he is a board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign.
The Hollywood Reporter should really just focus on reporting the petty facts of celebrity living, because beyond that their credibility takes a wicked nosedive. Recently THR critics praised the latest season of The Man in The High Castle as “must see TV” for its “Trump-era relevancy.”
Had enough celebrity political opinion? Not if the celebrities themselves have anything to say about (and oh, they do …). With just a week to go until the Midterms, several of them are actually insisting on bothering people on their doorsteps.
The midterm elections are less than two short weeks away, so showbiz proggies have doubled down on the pro-Democratic rhetoric. In order to market to the young, hip listeners out there, Billboard featured a spread of famous musicians’ reasons for voting this November. Would it be too obvious to say that that their opinions skew radically left-wing and anti-Trump?
