Fox's new medical drama The Resident was taken to task on Twitter upon its premiere last week for its completely unrealistic portrayal of what goes on in American healthcare and the January 29 episode "Comrades in Arms" was no different as it portrayed medical personnel ordering unnecessary tests to drive up costs and the hospital administration refusing to treat a dying illegal immigrant.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' latest column evokes the past and pines for a desired future. But it's mostly repetitive, and a clear picture of the future that Ramos imagines for America.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, fellow left-wing MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell joined Joy Reid so the two could fret over the Democratic reaction to the deal that reopened the federal government. After beginning their discussion by lamenting that some Democrats are criticizing their leadership over the deal -- oddly claiming that Republicans "never" criticize each other -- O'Donnell condescendingly accused Republicans of "living in a tiny intellectual space."
“Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again."
That was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's deranged analysis of President Donald Trump's new DACA proposal. When Jake Tapper asked West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D) for his reaction to Pelosi's wild statement on today's State of the Union on CNN, he seemed taken aback by Manchin's answer. Take a look at the following video and see if you can measure Tapper's level of disappointment...or was it sadness?
Since last Tuesday, CNN has on and off been preoccupied with the case of a non-citizen from Poland, Dr. Lukasz Niec, who was recently detained by ICE and is in danger of deportation because of a combination of two misdemeanors he committed in 1992, combined with more recent brushes with police, including a child abuse accusation from last year. After initially making it sound like his detention was entirely about the two misdemeanors from 25 years go when he was 17 years old, the liberal news network on Wednesday finally informed viewers of some of his other brushes with the law, downplaying them as mostly "minor traffic violations," but never did get around to mentioning the child abuse accusations from just last year.
On no issue is the paper’s bias more obvious than on illegal immigration, and it showed in both the tone and terminology used regarding President Trump’s latest offer in the fight over Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The front of Friday’s New York Times showcased Michael Shear and Sheryl Gay Stolberg’s “Immigration Offer: Citizenship and Stern Tactics.”
MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle interviewed Stephen Cloobeck, "a big-time Democratic donor," on Thursday. At one point, she characterized Cloobeck, the former Chairman of Diamond resorts, as "in the middle," i.e., supposedly moderate. He sure didn't come across that way.
In the episode titled “Hashtag IWasMadeInAmerica” of Freeform’s The Fosters airing January 23, the determination to normalize DACA recipients and reward illegal behavior was strong. Torn from the headlines of newspapers across the country, disrupting a conservative speaker’s event on campus was even shown to be noble.
La prensa nacional estadounidense hace mucho alarde de su apoyo a la igualdad para todos, si es que podemos darle credibilidad a ese alarde. Sin embargo, el trato que le ha dado al esfuerzo oficial de Puerto Rico por lograr la estadidad deja claro que tan sólo apoya la igualdad de la boca hacía afuera.
Our national media talk a big talk when it comes to advocating equality for all, if their shameless self-promotion is to be believed. However, their treatment of Puerto Rico's official push for admission into the Union as the 51st state makes crystal clear that some causes are more "equal" than others.
As Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appeared as a guest on Tuesday's New Day, CNN host Chris Cuomo repeatedly lobbied for DACA to be extended to help illegal immigrants without tying it to improving border security, even as his GOP guest repeatedly made the argument against doing so.
NYT reporter Carl Hulse managed to find good news for Democrats in the party’s abject surrender on the government-shutdown front, in his “news analysis” for Tuesday’s front page, “Hope for Bargain in a Swift Surrender.” The jump-page headline: “With Swift Surrender, Democrats Hold Hope Of Reaching a Bargain.”
