Appearing as a guest on MSNBC's Hardball show, former MSNBC political analyst and liberal author Ron Reagan made his latest incendiary attack on Republicans as he declared that President Donald Trump's base do not mind family separations at the border as long as it is "little brown babies being thrown in cages." In addition to Reagan's obnoxious commentary, the segment also depicted a classic example of the liberal media not bothering to make a distinction between legal asylum seekers who follow the law in contrast with those who illegally cross the border first and then declare asylum when they get caught.
For Tuesday’s edition of Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo invited on pompous Toronto Star fact checker Daniel Dale to try to catch President Trump in lies about immigration and border. But while the anti-Trump journalists were trying to pounce on the President, they both shared a whopper of a lie when they falsely claimed Democrats weren’t for open borders. Cuomo went so far as to suggest he’s never heard a Democrat promote that.
The Washington Post has a bad habit of avoiding inconvenient facts on immigration. In the years after illegal alien Darwin Martinez Torres raped and murdered 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen in northern Virginia, the Post published 11 news stories in the print edition in 2017 and another four news stories in 2018 that blatantly avoided the fact that Torres was an illegal alien. They did it again on March 28, when Torres was sentenced to life in prison.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump criticizing U.S. immigration policy during a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, host Gura invited Lynn Sweet -- Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun-Times -- to complain about Jews who have responded favorably to Trump's rhetoric that was earlier in the segment likened to Nazi Germany.
One of the media’s most hated figures in the Trump administration, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen turned in her resignation letter over the weekend, after months of conflict between her and President Trump. All Monday, journalists alternated between unhinged glee over her resignation and worry that Trump would put someone “more extreme” on immigration in her place. The hosts of The View offered their own scathing criticism of Nielsen, while co-host Sunny Hostin went after Trump for not addressing the “real” threat to our national security.
Chalk this one up to a blind squirrel finding a nut once in a while. Splashed across the front page (and above the fold) of Saturday’s Washington Post was a stunning piece that admitted many Mexicans are, like Americans on the other side of the U.S-Mexico border, “migrant-weary,” frustrated by the near-constant flow of illegal immigrants, exhausting resources, and overrunning shelters.
On Monday, all three network morning shows reveled in Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announcing her resignation with relieved reporting about her “tumultuous tenure” at the department being over and touting Democrats blasting the Trump cabinet official. Correspondents fretted over who would replace Nielsen as they bid her “good riddance.”
Television journalists hurried to get in their obligatory parting jabs at DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen following Sunday's announcement that she would be leaving her post. The consensus was that Nielsen would forever be remembered as “the face” of family separation at the border, and that she deserved “no sympathy” for any difficulties she might face in the wake of her departure from Trump Administration.
CNN legal analyst says that "for the rest of her life," Kirstjen Nielsen, who is resigning as Homeland Security Secretary, will "get what she deserves" for having implemented family-separation policies and for having "put children in cages."
CNN’s Brian Stelter tried his darnedest to frighten viewers on Sunday by falsely implying that the President wanted to abolish one of the three fundamental branches of American government. The Reliable Sources host played two out-of-context clips of the President saying “we have to get rid of judges,” — but at no point did he explain that the President likely had been referring specifically to immigration judges, and not to the judicial branch appointees that generally spring to mind when one hears the term “judge.”
Leveraging its unique capacity to speak candidly, in their own language with both asylum-seeking Central Americans and their coyotes, Univision is providing revealing coverage of the current, out-of-control crisis at America’s southern border.
Despite their own reporting from earlier in the week explaining how Border Patrol was swamped and at a breaking point that they had to detain dozens of illegal immigrants in an area under an overpass, Wednesday’s CBS Evening News decried the administration’s “remain in Mexico” program for those seeking asylum.
