Media Bias Debate
It’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.”
Colin Kaepernick's former teammate Eric Reid this week filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL, and an anonymous source told Yahoo! Sports that President Trump is the actual target of this new litigation.
CNN has exhibited a fetish for the Stormy Daniels story, particularly for her Trump-smacking lawyer, Michael Avenatti. In less than two months (from March 7 to April 30), Avenatti has been a guest on CNN a total of 59 times – an average of more than once per day.
Outkick The Coverage sports blogger and former Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis writes that President Donald Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize for a denuclearized peace between North and South Korea. But without the support of the "dishonest" media, that won't happen, Travis wrote.
In the wake of the vile “comedy” performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we’ve seen a future president of the association denounce the act and the current president refusing to say the act “crossed a line.” And while the current White House Correspondents’ Association president was refusing to say what so many journalists were, former WHCA President Ed Henry was on Fox News Channel’s Media Buzz on Sunday condemning the act and calling on the association to issue a formal apology.
The liberal media was in damage control mode on Sunday after the disgusting comedic performance by Michelle Wolf at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner fell so flat with the public that it left many journalists backpedaling themselves. It was the first topic of discussion on CNN’s Reliable Sources as host Brian Stelter questioned White House Correspondents’ Association President Margaret Talev about Wolf’s act. And when asked, Talev refused to say whether not she thought the “jokes” crossed a line.
President Donald Trump honored a large contingent of Winter Olympic and Paralympic athletes at the White House today, but left-stream media focused on the small number of athletes who were not in attendance. The Huffington Post, People and TIME magazines dwelt on athletes who oppose the Administration's politics and five others who met with congressmen on behalf of the climate alarmist group Protect Our Winters, which believes "the world is getting hotter and it's our fault."
Axios political reporter Jonathan Swan has a reputation of being an even-keeled reporter and appearing on multiple cable networks. However, Wednesday hits on the Fox News Channel’s Special Report and MSNBC’s Hardball saw Swan unload on only fellow journalists and elected officials for publicly spreading unsubstantiated allegations against VA Secretary nominee Ronny Jackson.
Behold the latest reminder that, for CNN, everything is about them. Wednesday’s White House press briefing saw another throw down between Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders telling off CNN’s supercilious White House correspondent Jim Acosta over claims the Trump administration has been suppressing reporters.
On Wednesday morning, CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta cried foul in a tweet concerning a Variety interview released Tuesday in which he insulted the intelligence of the American people by claiming that “[t]hey don’t have all their faculties in some cases” when it comes to the rise of fake news and rhetoric from the President or his advisers about the liberal media.
You'll be hard-pressed to find sports media who aren't pulling for Colin Kaepernick to win his collusion case against the NFL. Yahoo! Sports' writer Charles Robinson is trying to make the case that President Donald Trump influenced the NFL to collude against Kaepernick. He wrote Tuesday that Kaepernick’s lawyers are pursuing a strategy to prove the president influenced the entire NFL to snub the free agent quarterback throughout the 2017 football season.
These people just make me detest Washington. On Tuesday, Variety published an absurdly gooey profile of the liberal media ahead of Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCA) and focused on three journalists, two of whom (CNN’s Jim Acosta and American Urban Radio Networks correspondent/CNN political analyst April Ryan) are perhaps the most arrogant journalists period.
