On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it. The woman can’t get a break as last year her holiday style choices were described as being from “hell,” and now as something out of a “horror movie.”
During Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter and his panel spent the first ten minutes of the show trying to paint Fox News as an “unreliable source;” beginning by trashing the network for failing to adequately report on the “big climate change report.” David Zurawik of The Baltimore Sun argued that the legacy media is “doing their job of journalism, rather than the right-wing media, which is doing the job of public relations or PR for The White House.” Apparently, he failed to see the irony in his statement; considering the fact that the legacy media had done the job of public relations for The White House during the Obama administration and continues to do the job of public relations for the Democratic Party.
The final race of the 2018 midterms will be held next Tuesday in Mississippi between Republican favorite Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy. The liberal media have been desperately trying to turn the tide by smearing Hyde-Smith with charges of racism over mostly innocuous things. And they’ve been turning a blind eye Espy’s ties to an African despot on trial for war crimes in the International Criminal Court, and the $750,000 Espy cashed in from him. Wednesday evening was ABC’s turn.
During Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace used reports of Ivanka Trump using a personal e-mail account to promote a story by The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake highlighting a long list of scandals and conflicts of interest involving one or more members of the Trump family. Wallace and her panel discussed some of these scandals, including Kellyanne Conway selling Ivanka Trump’s dresses on TV and Donald Trump Jr. allegedly lying to the FBI.
In a revelation worth face-palming over, First Daughter Ivanka Trump was discovered to have used a private e-mail account for official business while transitioning into her governmental role. In an instance of actual honesty for what they were doing Tuesday, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt reported that the news had “critics pouncing” and “alleging hypocrisy after her father's relentless criticism of Clinton's e-mails.” Of course, this came after the liberal media downplayed Clinton’s E-Mail scandal.
During Monday’s Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham and her panel discussed CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers’s characterization of white women who voted for President Trump as racists who benefit from the patriarchy. Ingraham opened the segment by playing a clip of Powers from three years ago, back when she was a Fox News contributor and promoting her book, The Silencing: How The Left is Killing Free Speech.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts and former Trump enthusiasts dedicated just over five minutes more during their first show after a Washington Post scoop about Ivanka Trump using a private e-mail address to conduct official government business than they did on March 3, 2015 for the first show since The New York Times blew the whistle on Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail address and server.
After then-candidate Donald Trump issued an off-the-cup hypothetical about not respecting the election results, the New York Times hysterically compared him to a dictator. So it’s striking how accepting the Times is of liberal Democrats who actually do fail to accept the disappointing results elections. On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, political reporters Glenn Thrush and Jeremy Peters fixed the blame solely on Republicans and "conservative-dominated legislatures...stoking paranoia over stolen elections."
Beauty is only skin deep. And to the Democratic Party and the liberal media, that appears to be as deep as they go for selecting their candidates. That much was demonstrated during Sunday’s This Week on ABC when fill-in host Martha Raddatz, who is supposed to be an objective journalist, flashed her partisan side by bragging to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie about how diverse the income class of newly elected Democrats was.
The House Ethics Committee reprimanded Democrat Rep. Ruben Kihuen, accused of sexual harassment, and Republican Rep. Mark Meadows for his handling of sexual harassment by an aide. The resulting coverage from the New York Times and CNN was a classic example of the double standards the media applies to Democratic and Republican scandals.
The New York Times is accepting, even supportive, of liberal Democrats who protest the disappointing results of free and fair elections. Democratic Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams' classless attempts to poison the well after her close defeat at the hands of Republican Brian Kemp were greeted with consolation on the front page of the New York Times. The paper also supported attempts by liberals to overturn Donald Trump’s victory in 2016. But after Trump hypothetically raised the possibility pre-election of not respecting the results, there were accusations of dictatorship.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has been a dysfunctional mess for decades and thus taking place over multiple presidencies. The latest example of the VA’s dysfunction has been an apparent “computer glitch” that resulted in veterans not receiving their G.I. Bill benefits. But facts be damned (like most nights) to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night’s Prime Time as he blamed all the VA’s problems directly on President Trump.
