Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, Washington Post columnist and phony conservative Jennifer Rubin accused FNC host Laura Ingraham and Fox News generally -- which she called a "racist outfit" -- of using "racist innuendo" as she called for advertisers to pull from the right-leaning news network. Her comments came as the group discussed Ingraham's recent criticism of NBA player LeBron James for attacking President Donald Trump.
During Tuesday afternoon’s edition of CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin interviewed Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen, who recently published a column titled “What the Hell Happened to John Kelly?” In the column, Cullen explained that he initially supported the appointment of General John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff, making him the odd man out among his fellow columnists, but lost a lot of respect for him as a result of his tenure as Chief of Staff.
Univisión nos sigue mostrando que hará lo que sea para mantener la frontera porosa, algo tan medular a su modelo empresarial y de supervivencia a largo plazo, que ya ni se molesta en colocarle comillas a sus reclamos de que las propuestas actuales de política migratoria son racistas. Ahora simplemente repite tales aseveraciones como si fueran cuestión de hecho.
CBS This Morning journalists on Tuesday pestered Tom Cotton, wondering why the Republican Senator wasn’t offering up an immigration bill more to their liking. Co-host John Dickerson talked to the conservative and noted that his proposed bill “calls for $25 billion for a wall and border security, limits to family-based immigration, and an end to the diversity visa lottery program.”
During an interview with Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) Tuesday morning, New Day co-host Chris Cuomo editorialized that Democrats should push for a “clean DACA” bill without “adding billions for a wall that isn’t necessary.”
New York Times Opinion editor and frequent guest on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Bari Weiss drew the ire of both the left and right Monday after she tried to score a political point using false information. Weiss tweeted out praise for U.S. skater, Mirai Nagasu, who became the first female U.S. Olympian to land a triple axel. Weiss congratulated Nagasu by touting, “immigrants get the job done.”
Last week, CBS This Morning journalists warned not to politicize the story of a drunk illegal alien who killed Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson. That instruction apparently no longer applies as the network on Monday focused on an illegal hiding in a Phoenix church, trying to stay with his pregnant wife and five-year-old son who has cancer. Talk about story selection.
During MSNBC’s 11:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, co-hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were eager to provide a friendly platform for left-wing immigration activist George Escobar to slam the Trump administration’s “wildest anti-immigrant, racist, warped dreams” when it came to the debate over renewing DACA.
Univision continues to show us that it will go to such lengths to preserve the porous border so central to its business model and continued survival, that it no longer even bothers to put quote marks around claims that current immigration policy proposals are racist. Now they just repeat such defamatory statements as fact.
After news broke that Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson was killed by a twice deported illegal immigrant who was driving drunk, it was not shocking that the far-left news network MSNBC would be reluctant to give much attention to the story since it might bolster President Donald Trump's push for greater border security and deportation of illegals. As it turns out, an examination of all MSNBC shows from the past few days finds a grand total of only 35 seconds devoted to the story across two briefs that ran on Wednesday morning.
New York Times immigration correspondent Vivian Yee responded defensively to Trump tweeting about the death of NFL player Edwin Jackson by an alleged drunk-driving illegal immigrant, in “Politics At Play In a Death On I-70.” The online headline to the Wednesday story: “How an N.F.L. Player’s Death Turned Into a Political Exhibit.” Of course, the Times regularly uses tragedy to push dubiously connected political issues, like “climate change” in the aftermath of a deadly hurricane.
Reacting late Tuesday to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s comments about illegal immigrants and the DACA program, MSNBC’s The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell lashed out at Kelly as “the worst White House chief of staff in history” and someone who’s undoubtedly “full of hatred” like President Trump.
