On Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was put through the wringer by House Republicans in an open hearing to discuss the derogatory text messages sent by anti-Trump/pro-Hillary FBI officials. The texts included name-calling directed at Trump but also included a cryptic message about an “insurance policy” for the “risk” of a Trump presidency. The coverage of the texts varied wildly among the network evening newscasts; from no texts shown to covering up the officials’ relation to certain FBI investigations.
In May, the establishment press went into overdrive after learning that Attorney General Jeff Sessions didn't disclose two 2016 contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak on his disclosure forms applying for security clearance. On Monday, based on "a newly released document," the network reported that Sessions was accurately told that the disclosures weren't required, because those meetings were connected with his Senate duties. In other words, seven months later, the network finally said: "Oops. Never mind."
The three network newscasts seemed to be doing their best to stir the public up into a full-blown panic Wednesday evening, feverishly slamming President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. They were clutching their pearls as they freaked out about how Trump was “reversing nearly 70 years of U.S. policy.”
Over the weekend, it was discovered that Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a veteran FBI agent, named Peter Strzok, off his team for sending text messages that were disparaging of President Trump. But on Monday, new information broke that Strzok was responsible for toning down former FBI Director Comey’s language when he was announcing he would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton in the e-mail investigation. That interesting tidbit was blacked out of the reports in the evening broadcasts of CBS and NBC.
The truth about Fusion GPS's involvement with creating, promoting, and disseminating the infamous Trump-Russia dossier has slowly emerged during the past four weeks. Yet, based on site searches, the Associated Press and New York Times have not published a single substantive, genuinely related in-house story in over four weeks.
The Left is incessantly freaking about all sorts of things - about which very little freaking is actually necessary. The Media is - by-and-large - the Left’s megaphone. About whatever the Left is freaking - you’ll find the Media freaking. Only louder, with many, MANY more outlets with which to amplify the freaking. The advent of the Internet - has exponentially increased the number of outlets through which the Media can freak.
The most recent cover of Time Magazine — or I should say what's left of it, given its parent company's recent decision "reducing ... circulation and frequency" of the formerly iconic publication — calls President Donald Trump's cabinet "The Wrecking Crew" on a mission of "dismantling government as we know it." Separate reports singled out EPA Director Scott Pruitt, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and HUD Secretary Ben Carson for scrutiny.
At SFgate.com on Thursday, the San Francisco Chronicle's Mark Morford hit a new low. Early that evening Pacific Time, Morford justified the extraordinary number of death threats Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt has received and the resulting high cost of his security as deserved, given that Pruitt's conduct and policies as agency head represent "death threats to the world and all who live on her."
CBS Evening News aired complaints about a “revolving door” of government employees going to industry roles under the Obama administration on Oct. 20. But CBS quickly seized the opportunity to attack the Trump administration.
In a statement to the press on Thursday, President Trump scolded the liberal media for going out of their way to protect Hillary Clinton and not report on the new development in the Uranium/Clinton/Russia scandal recently revived by The Hill. But despite the President’s shaming and claims that the media didn’t have a choice when covering stuff Trump was talking about, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all ignored the scandal.
Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell sharply criticized the establishment press for ignoring damning new information about how Russia, according to a blockbuster report at The Hill, gained "control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply." 2-1/2 days later, the Associated Press has finally reacted — by treating the report as a mere "reprise" of old news.
In another shameless ‘Trump is a dictator’ segment on Friday’s Morning Joe, the panel were still reveling over the news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly called President Trump a moron in July. Unable to contain themselves, the gang compared Trump to famously flamboyant French King Louis XIV, Kim Jong-un, Vito Corleone, a “cult figure,” and, to top it all off, a sadistic fetishist.
