On Saturday's Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera contended that the Gaza strip is "the world's largest concentration camp." Thousands of Palestinians have recently massed along the Gaza border with Israel during a month-long protest. Fifteen have died in violent clashes with Israeli forces guarding the border. When show co-host Pete Hegseth reminded Rivera that Gaza is run by Hamas, a terrorist organization which has never recognized Israel's right to exist, Rivera deflected, saying "I'm not even going to argue it."
Thursday evening, Curtis Houck at NewsBusters noted that CNN Chairman Jeff Zucker had criticized Fox News as “state-run TV” and a “pure propaganda machine” that “does an incredible disservice to this country” at a media conference earlier in the day sponsored by the Financial Times. Fox's Tucker Carlson also went after Zucker Thursday evening, reminding viewers that CNN is literally state-run TV in certain countries.
The plea from New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman appeared in the Sunday Review: “Missing in the Fight Against Anti-Semitism.” The online headline: “Anti-Semitism Is Rising. Why Aren’t American Jews Speaking Up?” But Weisman focused solely and dubiously on controversial rightists and missed several recent examples of Democrats lining up with Louis Farrakhan. Weisman himself has a tangled history with accusations of anti-semitism that make his plea unconvincing.
Other countries have the same liberal bias as America does. They also slam Mark Levin. Raoul Wootliff of The Times of Israel reported on a sneak peek of Mark Levin's Sunday night Fox News Channel interview with Israel's leader Benjamin Netanyahu by describing Levin as a "controversial talk-radio host" and a "conservative shock jock." There's nothing in this article that would explain how Levin is not a "shock jock" like Howard Stern.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, lefty MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews refused to correct Democratic Governor Jay Inslee (Wash.) on his absurd claim that the National Rifle Association (NRA) wants first graders to be armed with guns. Not only that, but the host debased the gun rights group's millions of members and civil discourse by comparing anyone who defies the NRA to assassinated leaders Anwar Sadat of Egypt or Yitzhak Rabin from Israel.
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.
