FX’s '80s drug crime series Snowfall recently concluded a mostly uneventful second season. Still, between the cursing and the violence as warranted on the channel now, the series managed to squeeze in one last political jab for the year. Surprise, the drug war is…racist!
While some of his liberal media colleagues were giving a megaphone to Democratic Senators demanding an FBI investigation into the attempted sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was busy making false claims that the bureau had said nothing about not investigating the charges. But, in fact, they had declined to investigate.
With time running out for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to provide to some form of testimony with the Senate Judiciary Committee, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent their Wednesday evening broadcasts giving a boost to Democratic calls for an investigation into the Supreme Court nominee. Of course, they failed in their duty to inform their viewers that the FBI had already declined to investigate when the charges were brought to them over the weekend.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
In a last-ditch effort to sink the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) sent a letter to the FBI asking them to investigate the candidate for an undisclosed reason. All Feinstein revealed to the public was that she received “new” information from a source she wouldn’t name. Apparently, NBC was the only broadcast network to not apply ‘the smell test’ since they were the only ones to run with it.
In the midst of a “powerhouse roundtable” discussion during ABC’s This Week about the Bob Woodward book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Sunday, Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for the paper, lashed out at Trump administration officials and declared they should be ashamed that they work for President Trump.
On Tuesday, excerpts from Watergate journalist Bob Woodward’s new book Fear: Trump in the White House began circulating among the liberal media, who wasted little time in using them to trash the President. During the evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC racked up over 13 minutes of coverage pushing the book’s claims. They basically gave it free advertisements.
When the person who co-wrote a Trump-Russia book suggests that the outrage over John Brennan losing his security clearance is a tad much, perhaps the rest of the liberal media should take a chill pill. Appearing on the Friday edition of MSNBC’s All In, Yahoo! News investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff spared with fill-in co-host Ali Velshi and Natasha Bertrand from The Atlantic when he dared to suggested that “some of this is a little overwrought, the idea that it’s stifling free speech is kind of absurd.”
During Wednesday’s edition of The Lead, the panel found itself in a little bit of shock after learning that President Trump had revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who has previously called President Trump treasonous in his new capacity as an NBC News analyst.
In a Wednesday move that was both praised and criticized, President Trump revoked the Top Secret security clearance for Obama-era CIA director and major Trump-critic John Brennan. The former spook is now an NBC News analyst, so the network didn’t take too kindly to their guy losing the mighty privilege he was granted.
As of July 25, network newscasts have completely ignored the violence caused by the Occupy ICE PDX antifa group in Portland, Oregon, despite their usual penchant for covering pro-immigration protests. MSNBC has been equally silent on the leftwing group’s attempted occupation of an ICE facility since the protest began on June 19.
A group of House Republicans dropped a bombshell on Washington, D.C. Wednesday night when they introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They allege Rosenstein had been stonewalling the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees in not turning over documents they requested for months. But those facts be damned on MSNBC’s All In where Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared they were the ones “obstructing justice”.
