Appearing as a guest on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, MSNBC contributor and frequent Morning Joe guest Donny Deutsch accused President Donald Trump of racism as he cited the President's history of promoting the birther conspiracy theory against former President Barack Obama. Deutsch notably has his own checkered past on race since he once uttered a racial epithet on national television as he trashed Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
Over the weekend, NBC ran a couple of noteworthy reports on the issue of border security. One focused almost entirely on locals near the border who are complaining about a possible wall, while the other report, as it devoted attention to both sides of the issue, also showed a border security activist being asked by reporter Morgan Radford to respond to critics who accuse him of being a "racist" who wants to "hunt" Mexicans.
ABC and NBC on Tuesday ignored the fact that a lawsuit brought by 16 Attorneys General is entirely a partisan effort with every one being filed by Democrats. Although all three networks hyped the “outrage” and the “coalition of states,” only CBS This Morning explained the Democratic effort to stop funding of the wall.
To prove that there's a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning's New Day, CNN's John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. In bonus coverage, Jeffrey Toobin predicts Trump will win a legal challenge to his emergency declaration.
Proven Innocent, the latest Fox drama, aired its Pilot episode on February 15. The basic premise of the show seems edgy and clever, but it quickly devolves into the usual tired and worn SJW tropes.
The liberal media were irate at President Trump for declaring a national emergency in order to address the crisis on the U.S./Mexico border, but they were looking forward to other liberal organizations challenging the move in court. During NBC’s Sunday Today, political director Chuck Todd was confident the national emergency would be struck down but feared what would happen if the courts somehow upheld it.
The push to strip our border enforcement agencies of any funding received a big boost from NBC's sister network, Telemundo. A recent report on the network's evening newscast served as a virtual infomercial for the "Defund ICE" movement, without offering any opinion or perspective to the contrary.
On Friday's CNN Tonight, conservative CNN contributor Steve Cortes was outnumbered 2-1 as host Don Lemon and frequent guest and Donald Trump critic Rick Wilson lambasted him for supporting President Trump's plan to declare a national emergency to build a border wall.
NBC’s The Blacklist has already shown us its view of how little facts matter in the world today. I guess it’s no surprise then that they fill in the gaps with their own narrative. The latest example is appealing to illegal immigrant supporters by literally pandering to them in action.
Minutes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S. southern border on Friday, MSNBC congressional correspondent Garrett Haake touted Democrats scrambling to release “statements and tweets about how ridiculous they found that entire press conference.” Later in afternoon, the reporter even eagerly predicted that liberal lawmakers would be able exploit the deaths of military service members to denounce the executive action.
Hollywood will jump at any opportunity to throw a middle finger at conservative policies, especially at immigration reform. Doubling down on it’s message of “Fuck The Wall,” the music industry threw three Grammy awards at a music album featuring the vocal stylings of 53 undocumented immigrants. Of course Billboard Music reported on it with pride.
All three morning shows on Friday reacted with extreme alarm to the news that Donald Trump would declare a state of emergency on the southern border in order to fund a wall. CBS This Morning journalists sounded down right apocalyptic, warning that the republic was in danger. Co-host Bianna Golodryga opened the show this way: “We begin with President Trump who is poised to take action today that could test our 230-year-old system of checks and balances in government.”
