On Friday, CNN's Evan Perez insulted Congress as people who "don’t have any idea how the law works" relating to surveillance, claiming that "grave harm ... was done by the release of the Republican (Nunes) memo even though it was a dud." How interesting, given that Perez knows, because he reported it in 2013, that Obama administration committed abuses serious enough to warrant an October 2011 FISA Court rebuke. Additionally, the now-FBI-defending Perez should know that in October 2016, the Obama administration admitted that it never changed its ways.
On Friday night, during coverage of the resignation of White House aide Rob Porter over spousal abuse charges, CNN's Anderson Cooper, MSNBC's Katy Tur and MSNBC's Jonathan Alter were not content to just complain that President Donald Trump sounded too sympathetic to Porter, but they even had to inject suggestions of racism into the discussion by bringing up debunked claims that Trump used an ad to demand the death penalty for black teens who were actually innocent.
As Venezuela plunges deeper into humanitarian crisis, the broadcast and cable networks barely recognize its existence, while the print press, which during relatively tolerable times routinely celebrated the country's socialist government, is more reluctant than ever to use the S-word. Of six articles I found Friday afternoon about the horrid, deteriorating situation in that country, only one used the word — and that was only because it was about snap elections de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has called for April.
After news broke that Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson was killed by a twice deported illegal immigrant who was driving drunk, it was not shocking that the far-left news network MSNBC would be reluctant to give much attention to the story since it might bolster President Donald Trump's push for greater border security and deportation of illegals. As it turns out, an examination of all MSNBC shows from the past few days finds a grand total of only 35 seconds devoted to the story across two briefs that ran on Wednesday morning.
Wednesday afternoon at NewsBusters, Kristine Marsh noted that the broadcast networks' morning news shows "ignored a bombshell report released overnight" by Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). That report includes additional damning text messages between FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok while they were involved in investigating Hillary Clinton's private server and the Donald Trump presidential campaign's alleged connections with Russia. The media is now in a tug of war over the scope of the Page-Strzok text saying that "potus (President Obama) wants to know everything we're doing."
It's no secret that over the last several weeks liberal outlets like CNN have been aggressively trying to undermine President Donald Trump's push for more border security and aggressive deportation of illegal immigrants -- even wrongly claiming that the illegal immigrant crime rate is lower than that of the general population when research has found that the crime rate is actually much higher.
The Philadelphia Eagles took the field before Sunday's Super Bowl kickoff to the "tune" of "Dreams and Nightmares" by rapper Meek Mill. The cowardly sports press has avoided criticizing the team and its players for their horrible de facto endorsement of Mill and their objections to his alleged persecution.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, an all-liberal panel consisting of host Stephanie Ruhle, CNBC contributor Ron Insana and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson fretted over the likely deportation of a U.S. Army veteran, Miguel Perez, who was convicted in 2008 of trying to sell cocaine to an undercover agent. Because he is not a citizen, after he finished his prison sentence in 2016, he was targeted for deportation because of the drug conviction, and, just this week seems to have exhausted all his options in trying to avoid being sent back to Mexico.
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time on CNN, host Chris Cuomo ended the show with a commentary in which he complained that "there's a lot of bad info about immigration out there," but then he injected his own misinformation by wrongly claiming that "undocumented folks commit less crime than the rest of us." And the the next morning on New Day, he finally acknowledged the child abuse accusations against a Polish-born doctor that CNN has been preoccupied with who is in danger of deportation.
Last night on FNC’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham interviewed parents of a teenage girl who was killed by the gang MS-13 in 2016, and who were honored by President Trump at the State of the Union, January 30. The radio and television host asked the couple about their reaction to Democrats not standing for their daughter during the speech, and MSNBC’s Joy Reid’s dismissive response to Trump honoring the couple and their slain daughter.
On Tuesday night, during a discussion after President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech, liberal CNN contributor Van Jones insisted that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than the general population as right-leaning CNN contributor Rick Santorum cited a recent study by John Lott finding that illegal immigrants in Arizona commit crimes at twice the rate of the general population.
Xinran Ji, 24, had big dreams. But demons demolished them. The bright hopes of young Xinran Ji, a University of Southern California engineering student from Inner Mongolia, died in 2014 at the hands of a then-19-year-old "Dreamer" and his thug pals. Mexican illegal alien Jonathan DelCarmen, who first jumped the southern border at age 12, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last summer in the savage robbery and fatal beating of Ji -- who was walking home from a study group after midnight.
