Just a few hours before President Trump was scheduled to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for a historic summit for peace and denuclearization on Monday, CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga chided the President’s ability to negotiate in the United States’ best interest.
Ali Bashar, a 20 year-old Iraqi who sought and was rejected for asylum in Germany, has been arrested after fleeing to Kurdistan, and has now reportedly admitted to raping and killing 14 year-old Susanna Feldman in Wiesbaden in May. A New York Times report posted before that reported admission, as well as Associated Press items appearing both before and after it, betray a clear reluctance to acknowledge key facts in the case, and an overriding concern that opponents of Germany's permissive migration policy might gain political traction from this horrific crime.
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.
After rustling the feathers of foreign elitists at the G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, President Trump hopped on Air Force One and shot over to Singapore for Monday’s historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the liberal media was foaming at the mouth over Trump’s ability to push back against allies and the thought of something getting done with North Korea. The host of CNN’s Inside Politics, John King eagerly joined that bandwagon on Sunday and even said Trump was making Putin happy.
A highly-informed friend called me early Saturday afternoon and told me how impressed he was with Donald Trump's knowledge, temperament, and poise at the Saturday morning's press conference held just before the President was to leave for Singapore. Over at MSNBC, the guests on Saturday's AM Joy show certainly didn't view Trump's performance similarly. They relentlessly attacked Trump's mental health, physical health, and intelligence with a level of viciousness justifying questions about their mental health, physical health, and intelligence.
Christian baker Jack Phillips scored a major victory for religious freedom advocates on Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission discriminated against his religious beliefs. But there were some like CBS’s Stephan Colbert, who declared on The Late Show that night, that it was “a bad day for gay rights in America and also for cake rights.”
The Chicken Littles of cable news are in a full-scale panic over the latest fantasy disaster that hasn’t happened yet. Over the weekend, TV talking heads burst into flame in anticipation of the supposed “constitutional crisis” that might ensue if President Trump were to pardon himself – which he has not done, and which his lawyer has flatly stated he “has no intention” of doing.
Both the Associated Press and Reuters have described today's 7-2 Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission as "narrowly" decided and "limited." The justification for this characterization is thin, and AP has erroneously contended that "the big issue in the case, whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people," remains undecided.
New York Times Sheryl Gay Stolberg reported from a California town that the GOP has (once again) doomed itself in upcoming congressional elections because of (once again) immigration: “Republicans, Seats at Risk, Fight for ‘Dreamers.’” Stolberg’s zeroed in on Republican Rep. Jeff Denham of California for her front-page Saturday story: "A vote this summer to help undocumented immigrants could demoralize President Trump’s most ardent supporters and depress Republican turnout in November. A vote to toughen immigration rules and harm the young Dreamers would further energize Democratic voters."
On Wednesday, Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and David Crary of the Associated Press hyped that the "the Trump administration is remaking government policy on reproductive health — moving to limit access to birth control and abortion." The pair spotlighted how "social and religious conservatives praise the administration,'" but failed to give an ideological label for the "women's-rights activists...[who] view the multi-pronged changes as a dangerous ideological shift." The journalists also slanted towards the pro-abortion side by quoting six critics of the Trump policy shift, versus just three supporters.
First, the liberal media were touting the so-called “blue wave” that was supposedly going to drain the swamp of Republicans in November. But on Thursday afternoon on MSNBC and later on NBC Nightly News, they were freaked out by a so-called “surge” of Nazi Republicans that were on the ballot in the 2018 midterms. Despite the fact they were fringe people with little to no chance of winning their general elections, reporter Morgan Radford relied on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s estimation that there were an imposing eight candidates across the country.
On Tuesday, ABC canceled their hit show Roseanne because of racially charged tweets and it just so happened to be the same day MSNBC was airing their Everyday Racism in America town hall event. Along with talking about the news of the day, the program was dripping with hypocrisy from both the guests and hosts. And according to one guest, in particular, the way you get all white people to stop being racist is to make bigoted comments about them.
