Ever since HLN debuted as CNN2 on January 1, 1982, the cable television channel has been on a roller coaster ride that led to the announcement on Tuesday that the network is immediately cutting back on its live programming in favor of virtually all taped shows. The transition was already apparent on the same day, when Morning Express with Robin Meade was followed by a rerun of How It Really Happened with Hill Harper instead of a live edition of Across America with Carol Costello.



Appearing on Tuesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC News reporter Morgan Radford attempted to defend Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s dubious claim of Native American heritage by arguing that the liberal lawmaker “understood” it to be true. Meanwhile, anchor Megyn Kelly blasted Warren for using the claims of minority status to advance her academic career.



While talking to Republican voters in Staten Island, NBC News reporter Jacob Soboroff got a reality check in how much support exists for President Trump in the New York City borough. One woman even suggested that if the journalist didn’t like her conservative views that he could, “go to Venezuela.”



Things grew tense Monday night on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront (with fill-in host Jake Tapper) as one of the rare CNN conservatives in political commentator Scott Jennings threw down with The Nation’s Joan Walsh over Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s attention-grabbing attempt to reinforce her minuscule Native American heritage. 



On Monday's CNN Newsroom, co-host Jim Sciutto and correspondent Kaylee Hartung seemed befuddled over why Georgia GOP gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp accused his Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, of wanting non-citizens to vote illegally, all while ignoring recent video of her seeming to encourage just that.



Talk about a red herring and case of whataboutism. On Monday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews tag-teamed with Democratic strategist Steve McMahon and The Washington Post’s Ashley Parker to downplay the fiasco concerning Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s razor-thin Native American heritage by invoking President Trump’s tax returns.



From their usual lack of coverage on the annual March for Life to treating pro-lifers as wholesale crazies, it’s clear that the media doesn’t want to face the intimate realities of legal baby killing. The recent film about the trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, not only tells his story, but shows how reluctant the media is to touch abortion, even if events surrounding it involve first degree murder.

 


Reacting to Hillary Clinton’s Sunday interview with CBS News in which she defended her husband Bill Clinton’s mistreatment of women, on Monday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly and her panel of guests slammed the former First Lady for her hypocrisy and “many lies” in the #MeToo era. Kelly also blasted liberal feminist groups that rushed to former President Clinton’s defense in the 1990s.



In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.



In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.



Reporter Matt Flegenheimer prodded the Democratic party to abandno a moral high ground he is deluded into thinking the party currently holds, in “Democrats Debate if High Road in Politics Is Leading Anywhere – Party of ‘We Go High’ Is Just Getting Angry,” on the front of Saturday’s New York Times. As if the Democrats haven’t been in full angry mode for years, culminating in aggressive protests and actual violence committed against congressional Republicans, and then the anti-Kavanaugh mobs.



Between Thursday night and Friday evening, a number of shows on both CNN and MSNBC have pushed claims by Democrats that Georgia Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" targeted at black voters because of reports that more than 50,000 new voter registrations of mostly black voters are being held in limbo because of errors in the paperwork. But only CNN's Jake Tapper has bothered to note that Secretary of State and gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp gave an explanation for why a disproportionately large number of black voters were affected.
