On Wedesday's New Day show, CNN hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota pined for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call a special session to pass more restrictive gun laws at the same time the two ignored the news that the gun used to kill California police officer Andre Moye was illegally owned by a convicted felon.
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.
This could be the biggest display of chutzpah since the guy convicted of offing his parents pleaded for mercy on the basis of being an orphan. MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough had the gall Monday morning to condemn President Trump over an Epstein conspiracy theory, despite having floated a bizarre one himself. Shortly after the news of Epstein's death became public on Saturday morning, Scarborough took to Twitter.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the Colorado Democrat's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013.
Earlier this year, CNN irresponsibly gave positive coverage to an illegal immigrant hiding from ICE in a liberal sanctuary church in Colorado. One week ago, that same immigrant killed a father of five in a car accident, while driving without a license. As usual when these things happen, the only thing you can hear from CNN is crickets.
Few things are more upsetting than watching the media, including the nation´s Spanish-language newscasts, turn a tragedy into a political issue. The massacre that took place at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, provided all of the liberal media with the perfect scenario to do so non-stop.
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN was still showing its transparent bias in favor of more restrictions on gun rights as gun control skeptic Congressman Brian Babin was pressed on his views while supporters of gun control were allow to give their prescriptions for more gun control with little challenge.
Here's what President Donald Trump tweeted about Baltimore's congressman and his city: “Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is far worse and more dangerous. His district is considered the worst in the USA.”
In the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, a number of news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS have allowed guests to misleadingly cite gun-friendly Texas's open carry and concealed carry laws to give the impression that El Paso Wal-Mart customers must have been well-armed when they were attacked, thus undermining arguments in favor of allowing customers to bring guns with them.
On Monday's New Day, the three-hour CNN show treated viewers to a parade of one guest after another who pushed for more gun laws in reaction to the weekend's mass shootings. Even Republican-leaning guests like CNN contributor John Kasich and former Donald Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci came down on the liberal side of the issue. No one noted the argument that the killers in both El Paso and Dayton cose targets that were gun-free zones, or pointed out that nearly all new gun laws proposed would have had nothing to do with the circumstances of either attack.
Calling someone “racist” has become the default position for liberal politicians and certain members of the media who wish to deflect attention from real problems. President Trump has (again) been called a racist for having the temerity to note that House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) seems to spend more time criticizing him and the border patrol than he does fixing problems in his own home district, which includes about half of Baltimore city.
The latest installment of NBC Nightly News’s “Justice for All” series (a series about criminal justice and reform), anchor Lester Holt complained about the case of Crystal Mason, who according to the Tarrant County, Texas district attorney, “knew she wasn't eligible to vote and voted anyway.” That’s right, NBC was upset someone was prosecuted for illegally casting a ballot.
