On CNN Right Now Wednesday, host Brianna Keilar gushed over a cartoon dramatization of the Mueller report. An excited Keilar talked about how “there’s now an entertaining way that you can catch up” on the details of the Mueller report.” This “entertaining way” came in the form of a graphic novel designed to follow Insider’s instructions to “tell a story recounting Mueller’s report that’s so gripping it will hold your attention (and maybe your congressional representative’s).”
The liberal media usually take aim at the libertarian Koch brothers, but now that they’ve launched a venture with George Soros, there’s been an about-face.
Kamala Harris herself couldn't have been tougher on Joe Biden than David Gregory was on CNN's "New Day" this morning. Gregory raked the Dem frontrunner over the coals on numerous issues, saying he looked older, out of touch, had no excuse to be unprepared for Kamala Harris's attack on busing, and was very mistake-prone.
When it comes to the liberal media and President Trump, it's damned if you do, damned if you don't. MSNBC gave a classic example of the phenomenon this morning. In the days leading up to the Salute to America parade, the liberal media had savaged it, and in particular the prospect of tanks rolling down the streets of DC. But when the event actually unfolded, and instead of tanks rolling down the streets, armored vehicles were parked rather inconspicuously on display, that was no good, either. To the contrary, during this morning's 6 am EDT hour, the MSNBC crew kvetched that the parade didn't live up to the ostentatious standards of North Korea or France!
It appears that liberal billionaire largess just isn’t going to be enough to prop up The Center for American Progress’s propaganda arm, ThinkProgress. The Daily Beast broke the news story, reporting “Staff were informed on Monday afternoon that the site would be sold off and a CAP official told The Daily Beast that the organization would begin looking for prospective buyers for the website, which has come under severe financial strains during the Trump era.”
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says that President Trump is afraid of Robert Mueller's testimony because Mueller represents "good versus evil." Donny Deutsch says that Mueller's testimony won't change much, and warns people against the "post-Mueller depression" they experienced when the Mueller report first came out. Mika agrees with Donny on "post-Mueller depression." And for saying that Mueller's testimony will be "useless," the Morning Joe panel vilifies Rudy Giuliani as "stupid, pathetic, grotesque" and a "critter."
During Last Week Tonight Sunday, host John Oliver devoted nearly his entire show to advocating for the impeachment of President Trump while attempting to portray himself as neutral on the matter. Oliver appeared to have a newfound sense of motivation to push for impeachment following President Trump’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
CNN host and media janitor Brian Stelter set up a pretty easy mess for his cast of liberal media types to clean up during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”: whether or not the liberal media wanted to see President Trump impeached.
President Trump made more headlines Wednesday night after he told ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be fine with taking “oppo research” on his 2020 opponent from foreign countries. This comment drew criticism. But during their almost two hours and 30 minutes of prime time coverage, or hair-on-fire panic, neither CNN nor MSNBC cared to mention that that’s exactly what the Clinton campaign did in 2016 with the now-infamous dossier.
CNN’s Don Lemon was hardly an outlier among his colleagues in the media when he rejoiced in former White House Counsel John Dean’s comparisons of the Watergate scandal to the Mueller report during an appearance on Capitol Hill. However, Lemon differentiated himself from the others in the media by complaining that media coverage of a helicopter crash in New York City eclipsed coverage of Dean’s testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee Monday.
With absolutely ZERO insight or knowledge of the underlining evidence or investigation, the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee invited disgraced former White House Counsel John Dean to testify on the findings of the Special Counsel Report on Monday. Of course, Dean’s only experience in any related matter had to do with his own obstruction crimes during the Watergate scandal. Both CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News championed Dean’s comparisons between President Trump and former President Richard Nixon, a common show he puts on.
While MSNBC's morning shows were touting the House Judiciary Committee's hearing on the Mueller report that include former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean and MSNBC anti-Trump analysts as expert witnesses, Andrea Mitchell took a different perspective on her Monday afternoon show.
