On the Morning Joe of September 17th, Adam Schiff told Sam Stein that his committee: "have not spoken directly with the whistleblower." If fact, the whistleblower had contacted the committee and they spoke. On today's Morning Joe, Stein said of Schiff's misrepresentation, "I will say, this puts him in some trouble. He clearly wasn't being forthright in that interview with us a couple weeks ago. And he should have been." Stein went on to downplay the importance of Schiff's untruth, saying the substance of the whistleblower's complaint is more important than the process by which it came to light.
On Tuesday’s Daily Show, host Trevor Noah brought in correspondent Michael Kosta to weigh in on President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President and subsequent impeachment inquiry. Kosta sarcastically attempted to defend President Trump’s behavior by saying he does not know right from wrong due to his “moral blindness.”
In a Wednesday bombshell by The New York Times, which confirmed what many suspected, Democratic Congressman and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (CA) was apparently tipped off to the whistleblower complaint before it was filed. Meanwhile, during their evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News latched onto soundbites of Schiff accusing President Trump of wrongdoing and ignored the accusations against Schiff.
http://info.mrc.org/stop-the-media-impeachment-crusadeDire talk of fascism, threats to democracy, constitutional crises, etc. are Morning Joe's everyday fare in the Age of Trump. But to the fevered proceedings, Willie Geist normally brings a welcome dose of equanimity. It was thus a shock to hear Willie of all people floating a dark scenario on today's show. He claimed that there's no one around the table or watching at home who thinks that President Trump will "go quietly" if he's impeached or defeated at the polls.
After lying about the “favor” President Trump asked of the president of Ukraine last week, ABC’s World News Tonight was back with fresh lies to serve to their viewers during their Tuesday newscast. This time they set out to deceive folks about what kind of knowledge the so-called whistleblower actually had. Despite the whistleblower initially admitting they didn’t have first-hand knowledge about the phone call, ABC decried those who stated that fact.
While the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were trying to sweep the corruption accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter under the rug, Fox News correspondent Mark Meredith pulled out a microscope and shared what he found on Tuesday’s edition of Special Report.
The panel on The D.L. Hughley Show Monday weighed in on the impeachment push and the whistle-blower scandal that triggered it, making sure to trash President Trump and his supporters throughout their discussion. Throughout the rancor-filled opening segment, host D.L. Hughley referred to President Trump as “the most unexceptional man in history” and trashed Congressman Devin Nunes as an “ignorant a**-kisser.”
On Sunday, President Trump tweeted a quote from Pastor Robert Jeffress, who on Fox News had said that the removal of Trump from office would "cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation." Jeffress seemed to be envisioning a political "fracture," not an actual civil war. Joe Scarborough added fuel to the fire on Tuesday, interpreting Jeffress' statement and Trump's tweet of it in the most inflammatory possible manner. On Morning Joe, Scarborough alleged that [presumably by citing Jeffress' statement], President Trump was making "calls for civil war."
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, guest Rick Wilson, a supposed "GOP strategist" says "Trump isn’t magic, he isn’t invulnerable. If you cut him, he’ll still bleed." MSNBC contributor Tim O'Brien fantasizes about President Trump being dumped on a highway and being hit by a car going 80 MPH.
In another blatant attempt by the liberal media to drum up resentment against President Trump with more false reporting, the Monday editions of ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News featured reports claiming the President was putting the life of the so-called “whistleblower” behind the Ukraine phone complaint, at risk.
Near the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, panelist Hugh Hewitt responded to a question by host Chuck Todd regarding whether or not the Ukraine scandal would hurt Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden. In his response, Hewitt stressed the importance of relying on “one standard” when it comes to surveilling Americans; arguing that if enough probable cause existed to use a FISA warrant against Carter Page, there was definitely enough evidence to justify a warrant to surveil Hunter Biden.
Can Mika Brzezinski possibly be this oblivious? On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski claimed that, in contrast with Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren is well-positioned to benefit from the possible impeachment of President Trump because "Elizabeth Warren’s life reflects her message and that definitely works at a time like this because people are looking for truth."
