On Tuesday night's Rachel Maddow Show, the MSNBC host's usual elongated lecture contained a few seconds of easily identifiable falsehood. In attempting to underline just how badly Trump negotiated with the North Koreans, she claimed the communists "gave up nothing. They promised nothing." This at the very least left out three American hostages released.
If you weren’t sure whether a certain phrase in the headline was a word, it’s a no but MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried on Tuesday night to make it one. Describing President Trump’s attempts at currying favor with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Matthews told one of his panels that Trump didn’t come off like someone skilled in “political communiques,” but instead “like a kiss butt” and “it’s outrageous the way he talks.”
On the front page of Sunday’s New York Times, environmental reporter Coral Davenport devoted over 2,000 words to the Trump administration's alleged "retreat from scince." The headline made the proposition clear: “In the Trump Administration, Science Is Unwelcome. So Is Advice.” To Davenport, "science" includes support for the liberal climate change consensus, and the Iran deal.
On Fox & Friends Thursday morning, the show's co-hosts discussed the Obama administration's deceptive attempt to allow Iran to gain access to the U.S. financial system. Its objective was enable Iran to retrieve $5.7 billion in previously frozen funds from Oman, while telling Congress and the American people that nothing of the kind would ever be permitted.
Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews spending two separate segments sucking up to former Obama foreign policy and intelligence officials John Brennan and Ben Rhodes, complimenting the former for “know[ing] so much” and the latter for his “beautiful” new book defending his role in the far-left Obama legacy.
Despite the report showing how the Obama administration lied in Congressional oversight hearings about the access it would allow Iran, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) along with Spanish-language outlets Univision and Telemundo completely ignored the bombshell during their evening newscasts. It’s the latest in a disturbing series of pro-Iran moves by these networks.
The liberal media would do anything to protect former President Obama’s legacy, even siding with the radical Islamic regime in Iran apparently. That seemed to be the case Tuesday evening as all three of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored Iran announcing they planned to ramp up their uranium enrichment program during their evening broadcasts. There was also a report by the New York Times that said the Iranians had recently completed construction of a “centrifuge assembly center.”
There isn't enough room in a single post for all of the contempt and ridicule NBC's latest hiring move deserves. The PR department at its MSNBC cable outlet waited until early Saturday morning to tweet its announcement that Ben Rhodes, the Obama administration's Deputy National Strategic Advisor for Strategic Communications, would be joining both NBC and MSNBC as a "Political Contributor." Who knew that systematically misleading and ridiculing the press while in office in the name of selling the fatally flawed Iran nuclear "deal" would be a resumé enhancer?
May 2018 has been extraordinary for its high volume of establishment press corrections and erroneous tweet deletions. One particular correction at the New York Times stands out from the rest of that crowded field. In that correction, published on May 16 (for the May 17 print edition), the Times admitted that reporter Gardiner Harris committed four significant errors in an attack piece posing as a hard-news story about Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank.
In addition to siding with violent Palestinian border assaulters during Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, the network had anchor Jeff Glor sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu where he tried to grill the leader on his county’s military response. But despite Glor’s best efforts, Netanyahu schooled him on what it was like to be a country surrounded by enemies that want to see you destroyed.
Media outlets been hyping the recent increase in retail gas prices to nearly $3 per gallon, and primarily pinning the blame on President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear "deal." In 2012, when the price approached $4, CNN told readers that they "aren't as bad as you think," and that they weren't "a big drag on the economy" — and besides, according to the New York Times, "Gas prices are out of any president’s control."
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, as host Ayman Mohyeldin interviewed David Keyes -- spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- at one point, the MSNBC host ridiculously claimed that Iran "has not fired a single bullet" at Israel and that it "hasn't violated your sovereignty" as he asked why Israel has taken military action against the Iranian military in Syria.
