A Wednesday article from CNN touted the involvement of young American volunteers during the final days of a pro-life campaign in Ireland. Correspondent Kara Fox zeroed in on how Irish pro-abortion activists blasted one pro-life couple for their supposedly "deceptive" ways. Fox later spotlighted that "some Irish are outraged by foreign groups...arguing that American campaigners are using their vacations to stage a proxy war on women's rights in their country." She also failed to mention the involvement of Americans on the pro-abortion side.
On Sunday's CNN Newsroom, early morning anchor Natalie Allen repeatedly freaked out over President Donald Trump citing the failures of gun control in Europe in his address to the NRA as the CNN host hyped anger expressed from French and British political figures. She employed words like "preposterous" and "bizarre" to deride the President's speech.
Protests by workers and activists and, in some cases, violence by anarchists marked the far-left holiday May Day this year.
But most American news consumers would not have known that some London demonstrators carried communist flags and banners of brutal Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. They weren’t told that communists marched in Athens, Greece, or that anti-capitalist anarchists destroyed windows and threw Molotov cocktails in Paris.
With French President Emmanuel Macron in Washington, D.C. for an official state visit, the liberal media were eager to pounce on any seemingly awkward “bromance” moments he and President Trump shared. And since Macron’s arrival, the two world leaders have exchanged seemingly countless handshakes and shoulder grabs (including Trump joking about brushing dandruff off his guest’s shoulder). Of course, former Republican Nicolle Wallace used her MSNBC show Deadline: White House to take a classless shot at the President’s marriage.
NPR's All Things Considered on Thursday promoted an activist's own spin about her abortion campaign in Ireland, which likened the cause to the 19th-century effort that helped slaves escape bondage in the Southern United States. Lauren Frayer spotlighted how "there's a sort of modern-day underground railroad discreetly shuttling thousands of Irish women to abortion clinics" outside of the Emerald Isle. This is the same phrase that Mara Clarke of the Abortion Support Network used during a soundbite later in Frayer's report: "You could call it an underground railroad. I prefer to think of it as sisters doing it for themselves."
A year after ridiculing President Trump for talking about it, the New York Times acknowledges that Sweden has a crime problem, and suggests very indirectly that it may have something to do with its loose immigration policy – just as the president insisted. In “Grenades and Gang Violence Rattle Sweden,” Ellen Barry and Christina Anderson used the incident of a man killed by a hand grenade in Stockholm to talk about the disturbing crime trend in Sweden, and hinted gently about a possible cause: Immigration.
President Trump hosted Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven on Tuesday at the White House and, like with most foreign dignitary appearances, the two held a joint press conference featuring two reporters each from their countries. Right on cue, some liberals turned into snowflakes upon seeing Trump call on the Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti.
The New York Times starkly revealed its disparate, biased, and hopelessly confused treatment of fascist and socialist ideologies on Saturday, with Trump indirectly lumped in with European fascist parties. Reporter Jason Horowitz was featured on Saturday’s front page, “In Italian Campaign, Gravity of Far Right Exerts Its Strongest Pull.” Horowitz threw out plenty of “far-right” and “hard right” labels to describe some of the unsavory populist parties emerging in Europe. But on the same front page, White House correspondent Peter Baker also used “hard right” to describe the Trump administration’s policy moves. Meanwhile, another reporter celebrated a popular German socialist and knocked "trickle-down economics."
On Thursday, CNN's Richard Quest had a heated discussion with Gun Owners of America head Eric Pratt. Pratt punctured the establishment press-held myth that gun-controlling countries in Europe are meccas of safety. Quest didn't handle it well.
New York Times reporter Katrin Bennhold’s front-page story commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Still Chipping Away at a Wall Demolished a Generation Ago,” contained an incredibly ignorant paragraph about the freedoms of East German women: "Eastern women, who were part of the work force and with free child care, were more emancipated than their western sisters...." But it's far from the worst Times story celebrating the former East Germany.
It became quite apparent Tuesday night that CNN was very much against President Trump’s request to the Pentagon for a military parade through Washington, DC. First, they claimed that if you backed the idea you were in support of a dictatorship, then CNN Tonight host Don Lemon wanted to know if Trump was thinking of having nuclear weapons in the procession down Pennsylvania Avenue and in front of the Trump International Hotel, which was on the proposed route.
Sunday afternoon's MSNBC Live displayed the latest example of how the job of a Republican commentator on MSNBC is to avoid disagreeing too much with the liberal news network's more far-left analysts as weekend host Alex Witt praised frequent guest Susan Del Percio after the Republican strategist declined to voice disagreement with fellow guest Howard Dean's attack on President Donald Trump's fitness for office.
