As the broadcast networks this week gave attention to the story of an American tourist from Florida, Carla Stefaniak, who went missing during a trip to Costa Rica and then was found murdered there, all three failed to inform viewers that the murder suspect, a Nicaraguan national, is in an illegal immigrant. By contrast, Fox and Friends did take the time to note that he was in the country illegally.
A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country. Only 42 percent prefer the latter. Twenty-five percent of millennials who know who Vladimir Lenin was view him favorably. Lenin was the first premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Half of millennials have never heard of Communist Mao Zedong, who ruled China from 1949 to 1959 and was responsible for the deaths of 45 million Chinese people.
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon complained about conservatives repeatedly calling out the media who have attacked President Donald Trump for doing things that President Barack Obama also did to combat illegal immigration.
On Tuesday's New Day show, as CNN's Alisyn Camerota debated the ACU's Matt Schlapp on border security, the liberal host made her latest claim that immigrants who cross the border without permission are not really breaking they law as long as they seek asylum afterwards. Schlapp tried to school the liberal host on the importance of putting immigrants through a background check system rather than let them sneak into the country unchecked.
Great news that will save us billions of dollars! We can do away with our entire criminal justice system! All we need to do is bring Jorge Ramos, the Amazing Criminal Detector Man, into our courtrooms to point out the innocent and the guilty! CNN's New Day opens each hour with a montage of short clips. Today's 6 AM clip included the faceless voice of Ramos:
On Thursday's New Day, during her latest voter panel discussion, CNN host Alisyn Camerota misleadingly hinted that immigrants like members of the current caravan are not actually breaking the law by crossing the border without permission as long as they request asylum after they are apprehended.
On Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic says "I note for the record that they're [Fox News] talking about leprosy. Which I think is interesting, because leprosy, of course, is the most famous disease in the Bible. And I think they are trying to actually trigger people who are Bible-readers, who are religious people."
Is it more than coincidence that thousands of migrants from Central America are seeking to enter the United States illegally just two weeks before the midterm election? Who are these people? Who's paying for their transportation, food and expenses? Why doesn't the media find out? Is this migrant caravan a ploy by Democrats to win sympathy from Hispanic voters so they'll reverse their growing approval of Trump administration policies and vote against their interests?
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough dismisses concerns about the 14,000-person caravan headed toward the US. He claims that the last caravan, in April, "ended up 11 people and a hound dog." Meanwhile, Mika Brzezinski describes the caravan as being prompted by "a "human tragedy of biblical proportions."
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
On Monday, all three broadcast network morning shows offered a heroic portrayal of the caravan of thousands of illegal immigrants heading to the U.S. border from Central America. Anchors and correspondents were particularly thrilled by the group “defying” President Trump’s demand that they turn back, being “undeterred” from “their mission to get to America.”
On Monday night, CNN host Chris Cuomo spent the last four minutes of his show and even extending into the first few minutes of Don Lemon's show ranting against President Donald Trump's new policy dealing with illegal immigrant families detained on the border as he accused the administration of "lying" about family separation.
