On CNN's New Day Sunday, co-hosts Christi Paul and Victor Blackwell devoted a segment to interviewing the producers of the liberal propaganda film, Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook, which accuses Republicans of engaging in "voter suppression" against minorities to hurt Democrats. The two hosts also adopted the loaded term "voter suppression" and repeatedly employed it during the segment as if it were neutral, proper terminology.
CNN’s Brian Stelter tried his darnedest to frighten viewers on Sunday by falsely implying that the President wanted to abolish one of the three fundamental branches of American government. The Reliable Sources host played two out-of-context clips of the President saying “we have to get rid of judges,” — but at no point did he explain that the President likely had been referring specifically to immigration judges, and not to the judicial branch appointees that generally spring to mind when one hears the term “judge.”
Appearing on CBS This Morning on Monday to tout his new book on Sandra Day O’Connor, author Evan Thomas hailed the former Supreme Court justice as a “conservative Republican” because she voted in favor of abortion and affirmative action. Talking to co-host Norah O’Donnell, the former Newsweek editor hyped, “She preserved affirmative action and abortion for 25 years. That is no small thing. You know? Conservatives thought when she got on the Court, those things are gone. Those are the bete noire of the right wing.”
On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle dismisses the murder fantasy Beto O'Rourke wrote as a teenager in which he described enjoying killing two children with his car. "He was 16!! I mean, come on!!", said Barnicle. But during Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation hearings, Barnicle passionately argued that Kavanaugh's accusers had to be believed.
Nina Totenberg, National Public Radio's legal affairs correspondent, talked to Grant Reeher on public radio station WRVO, warning about the Supreme Court’s threat to abortion rights, criticizing the hearing performance of Brett Kavanaugh, and denying her outlet’s liberal bias. The NPR member station, which serves New York state from the campus of SUNY-Oswego, posted on Friday some transcribed highlights from Reeher’s half-hour interview with Totenberg, whose liberal bona fides are well-established on NewsBusters.
A Senate Armed Services Committee hearing took an unexpected turn Wednesday when Arizona Senator Martha McSally announced that she was raped by a senior officer during her time in the Air Force. Not surprisingly, two liberal CNN guests on Wednesday’s The Lead used McSally’s testimony as an excuse to attack President Trump and even McSally herself.
There’s nothing funnier than comparing a Supreme Court Justice to an alleged serial rapist, right? Well that’s what Late Show host Stephen Colbert thought, comparing the explosive interview rapper R. Kelly gave to CBS’s Gayle King Wednesday morning to conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing last Fall.
The liberal media warn us of creeping authoritarianism, and democracy dying in darkness. But what about when radical leftists sue the government demanding an end to fossil fuels? Demanding that Congress and the White House be overruled by judges when then block the radical left? On Sunday night's 60 Minutes on CBS, Obama-loving Steve Kroft put together 13 minutes of one-sided propaganda in favor of "saving the planet."
The New York Times’ got rather overdefensive in Thursday’s “In Attack, Trump Aims ‘Enemy of the People’ Directly at The Times.” The paper stretched its complaint against Trump’s concerning slogan to cast blame on him for every worrisome development experienced by a Times (or Washington Post) journalist anywhere: "They have added up to a rough few days for freedom of the press, a once-sacrosanct American notion that has been under sustained assault since Mr. Trump made fiery denunciations of journalists -- and the rallying cry “Fake news!”-- into hallmarks of his campaign and presidency."
During the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of Monday’s Today show, the hosts of the NBC broadcast were beside themselves with glee as they celebrated the Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary RBG being nominated for two Academy Awards ahead of Sunday’s Oscars. The left-wing Supreme Court justice was hailed as a “pop culture phenomenon” while the propaganda film about her career was cheered as a “gift to the culture.”
On Friday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe was relieved by the Supreme Court’s decision to temporarily block a Louisiana law that would require abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. Host Joe Scarborough hailed Chief Justice John Roberts for siding with liberals to impose a stay on the policy until a final ruling was handed down, declaring the move maintained the “integrity” of the high court.
On Friday, all three network morning shows eagerly touted the Supreme Court temporarily blocking a Louisiana law set to go into effect that would require abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. The same hosts and correspondents that breathlessly hyped the “big story” completely ignored an extreme late-term abortion law being passed in New York State just two weeks ago.
