To match their vicious pre-State of the Union address coverage, ABC lost its mind following President Trump’s first such address, slinging mud at the President for delivering a “divisive,” “gloomy,” and “sad speech” that did nothing to “unify” the country and instead “stok[ed]...racial tensions.”
With President Trump’s first official State of the Union address just a few hours away, CBS Evening News dedicated an entire report (two minutes and seven seconds) on Tuesday to the liberal Democrats who were trying to counter the President’s message. “More than a dozen Democrats are boycotting the President's speech. Many others will protest in a different way,” noted anchor Jeff Glor as he was leading into the report by Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes.
El presentador de noticias de Univisión, Jorge Ramos, ha vuelto a la carga en Twitter, mostrando tanto una intransigencia peligrosa como un sesgo partidista cuando se trata de su tema medular: la reforma migratoria. Pero esta apuesta a todo o nada, ¿ayudará a traer reformas significativas, o empeorará la intractabilidad de las partes?
On CNN’s New Day this morning, the hosts instituted a double standard when it came to political statements at the State of the Union. As the guests on the show previewed President Trump’s first State of the Union address since taking office, co-host Alisyn Camerota said that his choice to bring victims of crimes committed at the hands of illegal immigrants as guests to the State of the Union tonight does not convey a unifying message.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos takes to Twitter once again, displaying both dangerous intransigence and clear partisan bias when it comes to his bread-and-butter issue: immigration reform. But will this all-or-nothing approach actually help advance meaningful reforms, or is it likelier to aggravate gridlock on the issue?
On CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning, host Chris Cuomo continued to perform the usual duties of the liberal media, acting as a PR firm for the Democrats and the group of about 800,000 illegal immigrants known as “Dreamers.”
Fox's new medical drama The Resident was taken to task on Twitter upon its premiere last week for its completely unrealistic portrayal of what goes on in American healthcare and the January 29 episode "Comrades in Arms" was no different as it portrayed medical personnel ordering unnecessary tests to drive up costs and the hospital administration refusing to treat a dying illegal immigrant.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' latest column evokes the past and pines for a desired future. But it's mostly repetitive, and a clear picture of the future that Ramos imagines for America.
On Sunday night, weekend CNN Newsroom anchor Ana Cabrera signed off with a commentary dubbed "An Open Letter to the President" as she argued in favor of President Donald Trump making a deal that would continue something similar to current immigration policy. But at one point, the CNN host inadvertently helped make a case in favor of more merit-based immigration that would likely increase immigration from European countries and East Asia as she credited "immigrants" generally with 33 of the last 85 Nobel Prizes won by the United States.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, fellow left-wing MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell joined Joy Reid so the two could fret over the Democratic reaction to the deal that reopened the federal government. After beginning their discussion by lamenting that some Democrats are criticizing their leadership over the deal -- oddly claiming that Republicans "never" criticize each other -- O'Donnell condescendingly accused Republicans of "living in a tiny intellectual space."
Since last Tuesday, CNN has on and off been preoccupied with the case of a non-citizen from Poland, Dr. Lukasz Niec, who was recently detained by ICE and is in danger of deportation because of a combination of two misdemeanors he committed in 1992, combined with more recent brushes with police, including a child abuse accusation from last year. After initially making it sound like his detention was entirely about the two misdemeanors from 25 years go when he was 17 years old, the liberal news network on Wednesday finally informed viewers of some of his other brushes with the law, downplaying them as mostly "minor traffic violations," but never did get around to mentioning the child abuse accusations from just last year.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher made a number of incendiary attacks on President Donald Trump and other right-leaning figures and entities as he called EPA head Scott Pruitt an "eco-terrorist," likened the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to the "Gestapo," and cracked that First Lady Melania Trump visited the Holocaust Museum to "cheer up" after news broke that her husband might have had an affair with a porn star.
