Media Bias Debate
It didn’t take long for condolences to come pouring in from people across the political spectrum and throughout the media. Even with such short notice, both CBS and NBC ran news briefs on their evening programs reporting his passing. But ABC was the lone broadcast network to skip Krauthammer’s passing. And The Washing Post, where he wrote for decades, published an obituary that partially blamed him for the Iraq War.
Defying credibility, The Hollywood Reporter's Marisa Guthrie today tries to make a case that ESPN is more conservative than you think. In her story, "ESPN's Internal Political Divide: Bristol Tradition vs. 'Woke' Reformers," she claims much of the leadership in Bristol, Conn., is conservative, though the "independent" network is often characterized as a pinko lefty operation.
On Wednesday’s edition of New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) about the current illegal immigration crisis. In the interview, Camerota pushed many of the misleading talking points that have dominated the airwaves on CNN. When the Congressman countered them with facts, she continued to push the talking points as well as falsely defending the Obama administration.
As the Media Research Center has documented over the past several days, the liberal media’s coverage of President Trump’s immigration policies have been incendiary, hyperbolic, and out of control. Since the liberal media was on an anti-Trump rampage, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson set out to put them in their place Monday night. To do that, he brought on Daily Caller editor Derek Hunter who detailed how the “diabolic” media sought to “prevent rational thought” on the immigration issue.
The pundit class have lost their minds over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations.
In the latest of her numerous I-hate-Trump poison pen screeds, USA Today Sports' Nancy Armour calls Trump cruel for dividing the families of illegal aliens. And she claims he's disparaging NFL social justice activists in attempting to divert attention away from his own political shortcomings. More importantly, she reveals how the NFL Players Coalition is practically turning into a "political action committee."
On Thursday, CNN analyst and Playboy reporter, Brian Karem had an absolute meltdown during the White House press briefing where he screamed at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the administration’s immigration policies. The rage-fueled outburst was lauded by some and condemned by many, but during an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter pushed back and asked Karem if he wanted to apologize. Of course, the Karem refused and dug in his heels.
Sports fans are holding all 62 cowardly teams in Major League Baseball and the National Football League hostage, leading to the "blacklisting" of disfavored athletes, writes Minneapolis Star-Tribune sports columnist Patrick Reusse. He also implies that fans who are disenchanted with controversial athletes have no right to play the "I'm offended" card.
First reported by The Daily Caller’s Joe Simonson, the Department of Justice’s Inspector General report on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe found on Thursday that not only were “numerous FBI employees...in frequent contact with reporters” when they shouldn’t have been, but they “improperly receiv[ed] benefits from reporters,” including food, golf trips, and tickets to sporting events.
A Net Neutrality-free Internet – is the Internet status quo. It’s “The Internet as we know it.”
Everything you knew about the Internet the first two-plus decades – is what you know about the Internet now.
Everything else being flung at you by the Media-Left – is just ideological monkey poo.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle derisively labeled President Trump’s upcoming peace summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as nothing more than “a brilliant PR stunt that doesn’t get us anywhere,” but fretted to her panel of liberal pundits that he could get political gain from the meeting, “does this end up being a strong talking point for President Trump?”
On Saturday ESPN Radio's "The Sporting Life," host Jeremy Schaap and ESPN Senior Writer Howard Bryant discussed "the increasingly rocky relationship between Trump and athletes." Author of "The Heritage: Black Athletes, a Divided America, and the Politics of Patriotism," Bryant said President Donald Trump is dragging athletes into a culture war and the new no-kneeling rule he forced on the owners was a "stab in the back."
