Tucker Carlson and Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos resumed their ongoing argument over immigration. This time, with the Central American migrant caravan as a backdrop.
On Sunday night, liberal comedian and CNN host W. Kamau Bell kicked off the third season of his United Shades of America show by spending an hour trying to undermine the case for improved border security, and even pushed for an open border where it is much easier for non-citizens to enter the country whenever they want as he declared that "this idea of borders and walls is ridiculous."
On Monday, all three network shows recited the same liberal script as they bemoaned a caravan of over 100 migrants from Central America being blocked from entering the United States illegally. The Border Patrol simply doing its job was portrayed as a cruel act that created a “desperate situation” and “crisis at the border.”
On Wednesday, Fox News's Tucker Carlson highlighted MS-13's call for its members to kill police officers in Nassau County on Long Island. Only a few months ago, many members of the establishment press were criticizing the Trump administration's targeting of the gang in its law-enforcement efforts. They and the national press in general have been disgracefully quiet about this latest development.
As Venezuela's socialism-driven disaster deepens, the press's unwillingness to recognize its cause has gone from being "merely" negligent and outrageous to absolutely disgusting. This obvious failure, which is almost certainly conscious and deliberate, is present even when a journalist's work portraying the human element of the crisis is otherwise compelling. Such is the case with Ernesto Londoño's Saturday report at the New York Times about how refugees fleeing that country are overwhelming the ability of towns in northern Brazil to handle them.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, substitute anchor Ryan Nobles debated the guest instead of interviewed her. During a discussion of Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo threatening to sue ICE for rounding up illegal immigrants in his state, substitute anchor Ryan Nobles essentially claimed that there is no evidence that arresting criminals reduces crime as he debated former Republican New York Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey.
On Tuesday's New Day, as CNN's Alisyn Camerota hosted a debate between far-left former MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson and former Donald Trump advisor Steve Cortes over what the word "breeding" was referring to in a recent tweet by the President, Dyson at one point asserted that "you can be a white supremacist in brown skin" as he argued against his fellow guest defending Trump. Additionally, Camerota repeated the discredited myth popular on the left that illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate than American citizens.
After a trio of CNN political analysts pestered Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about a controversial Trump tweet on immigration during Monday’s White House press briefing, the speculation about the President’s intent continued on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront later that evening. And, of course, the only implications they could think of involved the President being a staunch racist. “And pretty much all of them are pretty racist. In fact, all of them are pretty racist,” declared Burnett.
Una nueva ronda de despidos, con "recortes catastróficos" por venir, confirma que el modelo empresarial viciado de Univisión ha provocado su propia destrucción.
When one thinks of liberal reporters who relish showing off at White House press briefings, three individuals who come to mind are CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and CNN political analysts Brian Karem and April Ryan. All three showed up at Monday’s installment to question White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about possible racist overtones in a Trump tweet that used the word “breeding” in regards to California’s sanctuary cities.
A fresh spate of layoffs with more "catastrophic cuts" ahead confirms that Univision's biased business model has brought about its own, painfully self-inflicted undoing. Here's how Veronica Villafañe described Univision's implosion for Forbes magazine: “Univision's empire seems to be crumbling. The huge aspirations of an IPO, fueled by an expensive and failed joint-venture with ABC, the $135 million acquisition of the Gawker digital sites and another $27.1 million for a 40.5% controlling stake in The Onion have come crashing down.”
During an otherwise glowing profile on Tuesday’s NBC Today show of New Zealand’s newly-elected Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, correspondent Cynthia McFadden pressed the pregnant 37-year-old socialist leader on whether she was the “Donald Trump of New Zealand” on the issue of immigration. Ardern angrily denied the charge.
