President Trump sent the liberal media into a tailspin last week when he put out a midterm campaign ad that highlighted the murders committed by illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes and denounced the Democrats for their views on illegal immigration. CNN in particular, rushed to call the ad racist and during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter boasted about how his network refused to sell commercial time to air the ad.
With just two days to go until the polls closed on the midterm elections, Republicans were working hard to get out their base and liberal media were working hard to get out the Democratic Party’s base. During the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America, they touted President Trump’s job approval rating slipping to 40 percent. Despite that good news to them, co-anchor Dan Harris was seemingly dismayed as he turned to Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos, asking: “why is this not a blowout?”
Legendary TV personality Oprah Winfrey stumped for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia on Thursday and the liberal media couldn’t get enough of it. During their evening news programs, the major broadcast networks celebrated her efforts as they gushed about her going door-to-door and surprising voters.
In the aftermath of Saturday’s synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, liberal cable hosts hurried to place blame for the shooter’s actions at the feet of conservative media outlets, on the grounds that they had recklessly “radicalized” the American right. Whether unwittingly or otherwise, the left-wing pundit class have crafted their own “enemy of the people” narrative — one which endeavors to hold purveyors of right-wing talking points responsible for the senseless slaughter of eleven civilians.
Counting down to the midterm elections one week away, on Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America offered a report that labeled Republicans as “combative” while hailing Democrats for “stressing unity.” No mention was made of any of the recent incendiary comments from prominent Democrats on the campaign trail.
CNN host Jake Tapper has a pretty bad habit of sitting back and letting leftist guests get away with saying some really radical stuff. Earlier this year, Tapper let Parkland student Cameron Kasky attack Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) by equating him to the kid that shot up his school. Now, during Monday’s edition of The Lead, Tapper took the same approach as GQ magazine correspondent Julia Ioffe claimed: “this President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
According to the rage-fueled tirade of MSNBC faux Republican strategist Steve Schmidt during Monday’s edition of All In, presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, the President, “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they have made that have triggered and radicalized these crazy people.”
During Sunday’s Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace contrasted front-page headlines from The Washington Post the day after Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was shot at an Alexandria, VA baseball field by a Bernie Sanders supporter with The Post's headline following the capture of mail bomb mastermind and Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc. Not surprisingly, The Post made sure to emphasize that Sayoc's political views were mentioned in the headline while the assailant's political leanings were not mentioned in the Scalise shooting headline.
The New York Times has truly taken sides in the upcoming Georgia governor’s race pitting Republican Brian Kemp versus (from the online headline deck): “Stacey Abrams, a Daughter of the South, Asks Georgia to Change -- In an election steeped in issues of race, voting rights and the South’s past, present and future, Ms. Abrams is trying to become the first black woman elected governor of any state.” The Times literally gave Abrams a Hollywood makeover in the lead: "Let’s say you were making a TV movie about Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor in the reliably Republican state of Georgia. Where would you begin?"
Today's National lead: Long-shot socialist in Maine! Liam Stack’s lead National story in Tuesday’s New York Times served as a flattering profile of the Democratic Socialists of America: “In Maine, Freewheeling Capitalism Hits a Bump -- Democrat in Senate Race Is a Long Shot, but His Socialist Solutions Seem to Be Resonating.” When was this “freewheeling” nonregulated capitalism Stack speaks of? And how does an admitted long-shot candidate nab the lead story slot in the Times? Political affinity, most likely.
A scoop in the lead slot of Monday’s New York Times was horrified that the Trump administration may resume following scientific procedure by defining sex in biological terms based on one’s genitalia at birth -- or, as the Times insisted, defining transgenders “out of existence”: “Trump May Limit How Government Defines One’s Sex – Gender Listed At Birth – Threat to the Protections of Those Who Identify as Transgender.” The online headline was even more dramatic and misleading: “‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration.”
With the midterm elections just two weeks away, the liberal media have ramped up their efforts to drag their dreamboat, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke over the finish line in the Texas Senate race. With President Trump’s visit to campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R) on Monday, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on the opportunity boast about Beto’s qualities while downplaying his poor poll numbers.
