Just hours after MSNBC’s John Heilemann compared the idea of holding migrant children and their families in detention centers as they await adjudication of their asylum claims to “concentration camps,” primetime host Rachel Maddow had equally hyperbolic analysis. According to Maddow, the migrant detention centers are “kind of like Guantanamo.”
Since the Immigration and Customs Enforcement workplace raid last week, the liberal media have grown increasingly radical in how they cover immigration. In a nearly five-minute-long report on CBS Evening News on Wednesday, special contributor Maria Elena Salinas (you might remember her from her time on Univision) delivered an emotionally drive, one-sided report condemning the raids and presses a U.S. attorney on jailing those who employed illegal immigrants.
Continuing the liberal media’s narrative that those working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement were monsters, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured correspondent Gabe Gutierrez trying to shame acting ICE director Matthew Albence with the video of a little girl crying because agents arrested her father.
Liberal billionaire George Soros had far more reach during the Obama administration than previously known, according to The Hill. Hill investigative columnist John Solomon wrote on Aug. 7, “newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor's extraordinary access to the Obama administration.” Solomon called out the left’s hypocrisy, noting that the same liberals who “admire” Soros and receive his funding “advocate to eliminate the corrupting influence of big political money.”
President Trump has nominated Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence and CNN's Jim Sciutto is not supportive.

On the Monday edition of CNN Newsroom, Sciutto confronted Utah Republican Chris Stewart about these concerns.

On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, illegal alien Jose Antonio Vargas called on US citizens to take "risks" to "protect" illegals if they see them being arrested. Sounds like Vargas was calling on people to commit the crime of interfering with a lawful arrest.
The recent deaths of migrant children in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies were tragic and regrettable. But a Democratic lawmaker, with an apparent boost from the CBS Evening News, claimed without evidence that the deaths were part of an intentional plot by the Trump administration which was being carried out by the Border Patrol and other agencies.
CBS’s SEAL Team must not be listening to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The series has now aired not one but two episodes criticizing the Department of Veterans Affairs. Even this show about the best special operators in the world realizes that the government isn’t the best solution for everything.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin practically put their hands over their ears after Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain referenced scandals that happened under Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, during a conversation on Bill Barr’s testimony yesterday. Whoopi was so desperate to avoid comparisons to the previous administration that she even fabricated something that never happened just to defend the Obama administration.
First, the liberal media refused the admit there was a crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. Then, they said there was and it was all President Trump’s fault. Now, according to Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, they’re back to claiming the Department of Homeland Security was not overwhelmed by a massive influx of illegal immigrants.
NewsBusters has kept track of the liberal media’s lack of or minimal coverage of many of the scandals plaguing Democratic politicians, but ABC and NBC shockingly reported on the mayor of Baltimore getting raided by the FBI and the IRS on Thursday. Meanwhile, CBS Evening News omitted the story entirely from its broadcast.
