If liberal fact-checker Lead Stories finds a fact that's inconvenient, it just ignores it. Lead Stories, one of Facebook’s official third-party fact-checkers, failed to fact-check the contentious Democratic debate between former Vice President Joe Biden (D) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on March 15. Lead Stories ignored the debate and its many controversial statements entirely. The Washington Post published an entire article of fact-checks on issues ranging from super PACs to abortion support.
Like clockwork, MSNBC made clear Sunday night for viewers that, based on the debate performance (and their strong liberal biases), Americans should feel much better about the coronavirus coming under control if former Vice President Joe Biden takes the Oval Office. In the first hour, guests hailed Biden for having “nailed it” with his “pitch perfect” arguments (which consisted of him talking about lots of Situation Room meetings).
Even with his multiple stumbling points throughout the night, CNN’s post-debate analysis chalked up a win for former Vice President Joe Biden citing how he supposedly came off at the leader America needed to see her through the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. According to the liberals of CNN, not only was Biden the one people could “trust,” but he was also the bringer of “hope” and plans.
The latest edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured a segment wherein the network’s chief apologist for “democratic socialism” asked his first question regarding Sen. Bernie Sanders’ controversial support for the Castro dictatorship’s “Literacy Brigades”.
Just two weeks ago, Joe Scarborough was penning what amounted to a political eulogy for Biden. Today, the show was portraying Biden as a virtual goliath. Leading the pack was Mike Barnicle, who claimed that in the free media that followed his South Carolina win, Biden: "looked like an ordinary empathetic, humble, compassionate human being. A striking contrast to the president of the United States." In fact, the vainglorious Biden has a history of bragging, and even lying, about his accomplishments.
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday, the Morning Joe crew was insisting that Mike Bloomberg immediately drop out of the race to clear the field for Biden and prevent a Sanders nomination. Today, after airing Bloomberg's wide-ranging interview with Kasie Hunt, Morning Joe was overflowing with praise for him!
Broad consensus on Morning Joe that to stop Bernie Sanders, Bloomberg should walk the plank and let Joe Biden compete with Sanders one-on-one. The "be gone, Bloomie" scenario was predicated on the assumption that Biden will handily win the South Carolina primary this Saturday.
At the opening of Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Anthony Mason touted a new poll conducted by the network immediately following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate. The survey of “Democratic debate watchers” found that 47% felt “nervous” about the field of 2020 candidates after watching the free-for-all.
During a live edition of the Late Show following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate, host Stephen Colbert applauded the candidates for ignoring moderator and CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell throughout much of the raucous event. He also ironically warned that “you can’t listen to a TV person.”
Joe Scarborough caught a lot of flak from the left earlier this week for suggesting that Elizabeth Warren drop out of the race. Just wait till the lefties get hold of what Scarborough & Co. said this morning about Warren's sustained attacks on Mike Bloomberg during last night's debate. The panel variously described Liz's arrows [you should excuse the expression] against poor Bloomie as "extreme, uncomfortable, bizarre, absurd."
In something reminiscent of someone listing off glorifying titles for characters from Game of Thrones, CNN’s post-debate panel of liberals on Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday marveled at how Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) conducted himself, even while digging himself into a hole by tripling down on his support for communist dictator Fidel Castro.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
