For anyone wondering how former MSNBC host Ed Schultz has been occupying his time since the far-left host was booted from MSNBC a couple of years ago, the answer to that question would seem to be that he's going even further off the rails if his current show from this past week is an indication. Schultz -- who currently hosts the Russia Today network's The News with Ed Schultz -- actually gave an unchallenged forum to an anti-Israel activist -- Miko Peled -- who not only called the Israeli government a "racist" regime that is engaging "genocide" against Arabs, but the guest even called for the U.S. to take military action against the Jewish state by sending the Sixth Fleet to the Gaza Strip and forcing Israel to end its blockade.
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.
In an exclusive interview aired on Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports with Vice President Mike Pence during his overseas trip to Israel, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was aghast at him accurately holding Democrats accountable for shutting down the government. She proceeded to lecture Pence on his decision to publicly criticize liberal lawmakers while on foreign soil.
Before Vice President Mike Pence addressed Israel's government on Monday, "13 Israeli-Arab members of Israel's Parliament held up signs saying 'Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine' and were forcibly removed by security as Pence started to speak," according to NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
Max Fisher’s latest explainer piece in Monday’s New York Times, “How the Right Took Israel’s Side,” attacked President Trump and conservatives in general for supporting Israel for no good reason. After flubbing basic facts about the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem in favor of anti-Israel assertions in December, Fisher again revealed himself untrustworthy on an issue he pays special attention to, offering grossly misleading characterizations of Republican attitudes toward the Israel-Palestinian dilemma.
New York Times Education reporter Erica Green picked a bizarre fight against a Trump nominee for being too concerned about anti-Semitic violence on campus -- unless one remembers how hostile the paper is to pro-Israel voices and how accommodating it is to radical pro-Islamic ones: “An Advocate for Israel, Named to a Civil Rights Post, Draws Criticism” was the headline in Friday’s Times. The text box took the anti-Israel critics to heart: “Opponents see a narrow focus as a hurdle to fairness.”
It’s ironic how liberal celebrities preach tolerance and acceptance but apparently possess neither. After singer Lorde announced her decision to cancel her concert in Tel Aviv, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and World Values Network took out an ad in the Washington Post to criticize her for her decision. While the ad went after Lorde, it also targeted the media in New Zealand, which influenced Lorde to make her decision.
It seems someone at CBS thought it was a good idea to send correspondent Mark Phillips all the way to Germany and do a full report about the Berlin Wall just to suggest that all walls are bad, and therefore undermine President Donald Trump's push for a border wall, as well as Israel's security barrier which has likely saved thousands from being murdered by suicide bombers.
As I laid down beside my Mother in an Israeli hospital bed, I couldn't believe she was wounded, just as I was as a little girl when rubble had fallen on top of me after Islamic terrorists blew up my home. I was then in disbelief at what I witnessed.
Israel doctors and nurses were attending to Islamic radicals, who they knew full well would love to see every Jew on earth perish.
Over the weekend, several police officers were shot and injured in Pennsylvania in an apparent terrorist attack by a man from Egypt. CBS has so far managed to stand out by completely ignoring the story as ABC, NBC, CNN, FNC and MSNBC have all to some extent given attention to the subject.
Pop stars and celebrities are no strangers to liberal media influence.
Singer Lorde decided to cancel a concert in Tel Aviv after reading a pro-Palestine criticism published in a New Zealand magazine called The Spinoff. In the article, headlined, “Dear Lorde, Here’s Why We’re Urging You Not to Play Israel,” Nadia Abu-Shanab and Justine Sachs wrote, “A performance in Israel sends the wrong message. Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation.”
On Monday, CBS This Morning was alone among the morning newscasts in ignoring Guatemala's announcement that it will be first to follow the U.S. lead and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move its embassy there. The CBS Evening News also avoided mentioning Guatemala as ABC's World News Tonight and the NBC Nightly News were both preempted.
