CNN's John King began his Inside Politics program on Thursday by lamenting Israel's refusal to admit leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as "unprecedented" and contrary to democratic ideals.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
On Thursday, news broke that Israel would block Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country due to their calls for a boycott of the Jewish state. In response, MSNBC thought it was important to provide viewers with a supposed “fact check” claiming that the far-left lawmakers, who both have a history of anti-Semitism, didn’t “hate” Israel.
Appearing as a guest on the Monday edition of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 , New York Times columnist Tom Friedman tried to give advice to Democrats on how to best beat President Donald Trump next year, lamely suggesting that they label the President a "chump" for relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. He also fearmongered that the country could not "recover" from a second term of Trump, and worried that Democrats are being too openly to the left in some of the issues they have been pushing.
Yankees' legend Mariano Rivera (appearing second from left in photo) was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame today amid much fanfare — and sharp criticism from Daily Beast writer Robert Silverman. The sleazy hit piece focused on Rivera's Christian faith, his [gasp!] right-wing politics and his associations with so-called bigots, racists and loons.
Late Monday afternoon to the delight of their minions at outlets like CNN and MSNBC, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) hosted a press conference that simultaneously warned against taking the President’s bait in focusing on his Sunday tweets criticizing them while also doubling down on their anti-Semitic, far-left agenda. Not surprisingly, two of the three questions expressed concern on their behalf.
New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief David Halbfinger again provided a solely Palestinian view of the conflict in Israel, writing through the eyes of left-wing U.S. Jewish group J Street for Wednesday’s edition: “Absorbing a Different Slice of a Jewish Birthright – An Unflinching View Of Israeli Occupation.” Halbfinger followed a group of American college students on an “alternative” left-wing pro-Palestinian tour of the West Bank. He has a history of minimizing the existential threat Israel faces in the region, while repeating Hamas talking points as fact.
The likelihood I would ever be invited to serve on a network panel questioning the Democratic presidential candidates is equivalent to an invitation to take the next trip to the moon. Still, as I tortured myself watching the two “debates,” which were not really debates, but mostly a show of memorized sound bites, I thought of unasked questions that ought to have been put to them all
On Friday, NBC’s Today show aired an exclusive interview with Khaled Al-Batsh, one of the leaders of the Palestinian terrorist organization Islamic Jihad. During that exchange, Al-Batsh was provided with a media megaphone to smear President Trump as a “thug” and denounce the “Israeli occupation” of the Gaza Strip.
Being a lefty journalist means never having to say you’re sorry. Good thing, too. You’d be so busy wiping egg from your face you’d barely have time to scream about climate change causing pregnant hens to fly. Take media-types’ early, swooning support for Al Jazeera’s attempts to enter the U.S. market. Sure, character witnesses Nicholas Kristof, Brian Stelter and the Boston Globe said, The Beheading Channel is dishonest, anti-Israel and anti-American, but it’s a fresh, intriguing anti-Israel and American bias.
New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief David Halbfinger was shocked, shocked by pro-Israel bias from the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman in “Israel is on the Side of God,’ Declares U.S. Ambassador.” The text box to Wednesday’s story: “Many are left slack-jawed by a brazen show of bias.” Speaking of being left slack-jawed by bias...has Halbfinger read his own material lately? As Hamas rockets rain down on Israeli civilians in May, Halbfinger devoted his reporting to shielding Hamas from criticism and excusing their violence as “impatience” with Israel.
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg handled the latest disturbing anti-Israel outburst from a controversial Democratic freshmen representative...by rushing to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s defense in Tuesday’s edition under a headline that reduced the controversy to a partisan squabble: “A ‘Calming Feeling,’ a Furor and a New Front in the War Over Anti-Semitism.” Tlaib made a bizarre and historically fraudulent comment on Jews fleeing persecution and Palestinians supposedly giving them refuge after the Holocaust. The paper’s response fits the media pattern. When a Democrat says something offensive or controversial, the media reacts not to the actual Democratic statement, but how the Republicans reacted to it, “pouncing” or otherwise.
