In an investigative report that undoubtedly put her own life in danger, CBS foreign correspondent Holly Williams posed as an ISIS wife and uncovered a human smuggling syndicate that promised to transport her and her mock husband to Germany. It was a shocking report that dominated Thursday’s CBS Evening News.
Stephen Colbert sat down with British talk show host Graham Norton during Thursday’s edition of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the two teamed up to trash the leaders of their respective countries: President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Norton’s commentary definitely indicated that the infiltration of left-wing politics into comedy shows is not unique to the United States.
Should Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy include his inaction on the 2014 Russian invasion and annexation of Crimea? It's a simple question that would appear to have a simple answer, but judging by the media's reaction over the past couple of days, anyone who says that it should is either a liar, a Putin fan, or both. MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing was the latest media personality to accuse President Trump of attempting to "rewrite history" on Tuesday.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid bizarrely suggested that the media have been too soft on President Donald Trump and even likened coverage of him to treatment of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s as she lumped both together as "white conservatives." She also pushed a theory that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to tear down the country so that it will be in "pieces" when a "nonwhite majority" takes power in the future.
The New York Times loves a story about unfounded fears about Immigrants of Color. See Melissa Eddy's report from Germany, headlined "A Summer of Angst in One of the World’s Safest Countries." They buried the most interesting crime statistic in paragraph 23.
Things took a bizarre turn roughly ten minutes into Wednesday’s Hardball and, surprisingly, it wasn’t MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After discussing President Donald Trump’s feud with Denmark, the topic turned to Trump’s proposal to invite Russia back into the G-7 (making it the G-8) again when far-left PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor appeared to take issue with Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA being played at Trump rallies.
Reporter Jo Becker got huge front-page play on the front of Sunday’s New York Times for the investigation, “How Nationalism Found a Home in Sweden -- A Global Machine Fuels the Far Right’s Rise.” But while battling two of the paper’s favorite villains, Russia and “Islamophobia,” along with the Swedish political party Sweden Democrats, Becker left out the context of quite a lot of recent Swedish history. It turns out that the concern over assimilating Muslim immigrants in Sweden is neither a recently hatched Vladimir Putin plot or the figment of racist imagination.
The folks over at MSNBC have created a "heads I win, tails you lose" approach to President Trump and Republican policy towards Russia. The same network that has come up with "Moscow Mitch" for Republicans being allegedly too soft on Russia now claims Trump is giving Vladimir Putin "a gift" by withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, because Russia refuses to come back into compliance.
As BBC's Years and Years, which has aired in the United States on HBO, came to a close with Episode 6 airing July 29, the writers couldn't help but throw in some more comparisons between evil Prime Minister Vivienne Rook (Emma Thompson) and President Donald Trump.
Two summers ago on a visit to Budapest, I asked the spokesman for the Hungarian government about the growing problem of migrants coming into Europe. He told me Hungary doesn't have a migrant problem because they don't have welfare programs. So, he said, migrants continue their travels to other European countries that do.
LONDON — There is the musty smell of a police state here in old London, or should I say an inchoate police state? The present mayor, Sadiq Khan, is of the left, and he shares the left's lust for power. Everything he does indicates his hankering for power. To me, a foreigner in these parts, I sense this lust in his treatment of the automobile. The mayor envisages London as a city abundant with bicycle riders and pedestrians. In his London of the future, the only automobiles will be the patrol cars of the police.
In whining about President Trump’s response to the Ambassador’s comments, CBS Evening News mourned for Darroch’s resignation and defended his comments. “Sir Kim Darroch's resignation came after days of unrelenting criticism by President Trump, who said he would no longer work with the British ambassador,” bemoaned senior foreign affairs correspondent and Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan.
