On Thursday's New Day show, CNN's John Avlon presented another of his infamous "Reality Check" segments which is more akin to liberal spin than an actual effort to clearly inform viewers about the issues. The CNN analyst argued against a border wall as he cited Politifact to dismiss claims of 2,000 homicides being committed by illegal immigrants in one year being reported by ICE for FY2018.
As Texas Republican Congressman Chip Roy appeared as a guest on CNN's Right Now show, host Brianna Keilar insisted that it is a "fact" that illegal immigrants commit crime at a lower rate than do U.S. citizens as the two debated whether there needs to be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Left-wing actor and activist Bradley Whitford, whose most famous for his role on The West Wing, appeared on ABC’s The View Friday to promote his newest project but the hosts mainly wanted him to rant about the "real" national emergency being gun violence, instead of illegal immigration.
On Friday's New Day show on CNN, host John Berman and Alabama Republican Congressman Mo Brooks got into a heated debate over whether President Donald Trump should build a border wall as Brooks called out the liberal news network's "propaganda" in trying to downplay the amount of crime committed by illegal immigrants.
The clearest sign of the liberal media’s bias comes when they purposefully choose to exclude information that doesn’t affirm their agenda. That apparently happened yet again this week, after CNN scrapped an interview with a border city's news station, after they had reported that the wall was effective at deterring illegal immigration.
It’s so rare that a member of the media actually confronts Democrats on anything, that it's worth noting when they do. That happened on Thursday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, when anchor Willie Geist asked Democrat guest how his party could call something “immoral” that they voted for back in 2006.
On Wednesday's Tucker Carlson Tonight, veteran Fox News analyst Brit Hume called out journalistic "fact checkers" who assume that liberal opinions on the illegal immigration issue are facts, and therefore that the conservative counter-opinions are claimed by those journalists to be not factual.
Between Monday evening and Wednesday morning, a significant number of journalists and regular commentators across CNN, MSNBC, and even Fox News have cited claims from a handful of flawed studies claiming that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than do American citizens. But, as previously documented by NewsBusters, the conclusions of these studies are highly questionable while a few studies have suggested a higher crime rate by illegals.
On Wednesday’s show, the hosts of The View predictably were angry at President Trump’s address Tuesday night about the border, and opened the show by ranting about it. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin also combatted Meghan McCain over the policy separating illegal alien children at the border, calling that the real humanitarian crisis.
It doesn’t get much worse than mocking the dead or wounded veterans, but NBC seems to be making a habit of it lately. After Saturday Night Live mocked a wounded Republican veteran who became a Congressman last November, Late Night host Seth Meyers’ Twitter account sent out a tweet mocking the victims of illegal alien crime, after President Trump’s primetime address on the border.
On Tuesday's New Day show, CNN host Alisyn Camerota gave Parkland gun control activists David Hogg and Jaclyn Corin a forum to promote their agenda as she also repeated discredited polling which claims 97 percent of Americans want a "universal background check" law that would be applied to all gun purchases.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, the network’s White House correspondent Jonathan Karl sat down with Vice President Mike Pence to grill him about President Trump not backing down on the border wall, laying blame for the government shutdown exclusively on him. Despite Democrats being unwilling to budge on the need for border security, the ABC reporter seethed to Pence that it was Trump’s fault that we were “in this mess.”
