A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as “favorable.” Let's examine this tragic vision in light of the Fraser Institute's recently released annual study “Economic Freedom of the World,” prepared by Professors James Gwartney, Florida State University; Robert A. Lawson and Ryan Murphy of Southern Methodist University; and Joshua Hall, West Virginia University, in cooperation with the Economic Freedom Network.
On Friday's Fox and Friends, and again on Fox and Friends Saturday, Fox News Channel gave coverage to a story ignored by the other networks as the show recalled for viewers that two illegal immigrants have been charged with murdering a El Dorado County, California, police officer, Brian Ishmael, who was shot to death on October 23 while responding to reports of a robbery.
Over the past couple of months, as there have been signs that President Donald Trump is finally making progress in turning the tide on illegal border crossings, Fox News Channel has given substantial coverage to several critical successes while the other networks have barely touched these developments.
In the past couple of weeks, New York Times reporters Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis have made TV appearances to promote their book Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration. In appearances on CNN and MSNBC, anchors have underlined revelations that President Trump suggested the extreme step of government agents shooting immigrants in the legs -- often leaving out the notion that it would be in response to immigrants throwing large rocks...and of course, often leaving out the word "illegal" to characterize the immigrants.
Again showing the New York Times is at its most liberal on the issue of immigration, Times reporters Azam Ahmed and Paulina Villegas reported from Mexico City after a Supreme Court ruling allowed the Trump administration to limit asylum applications: “For Most Asylum Seekers, New Rule Ends ‘All Hope.’” He wrote: "The new rule, which has been allowed to take effect pending legal challenges, is consistent with the Trump administration’s posture of hostility and rejection for those seeking protection in the United States."
On Thursday's New Day show, during a panel discussion of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that is a victory for the Trump administration, CNN regulars fretted about the Supreme Court's willingness to hear the case more quickly than usual. CNN legal analyst Laura Coates even twice called the speed of the ruling "ridiculous."
Now that convicted cartel boss Joaquín ´El Chapo ́ Guzmán is serving a life sentence at the ADX Florence supermax prison in Colorado, Telemundo fueled the lore about him as a bigger-than-life hero with a two-minute report on a new narcorrido, a narrative ballad in which the lyrics praise drug trafficking and illegal activities, that portrays him as a loving father and not a serial killer (over 3,000 assassinations in Mexico and beyond have been attributed to him).
On CNN, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services office, clashes with Alisyn Camerota over new rules adopted by the Trump administration to deal with border crossers. She repeatedly cuts him off, and he tells her: "I know you don't want real answers, I know you don't want truth . . . You're pushing a narrative."
A Washington Post story on Thursday completely contradicts widespread mainstream media cynicism about the deal reached with Mexico to limit migration from its southern border under threat of tariffs.
On Monday’s airing of CNN Right Now, host Brianna Keilar and CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd ventured deep into President Trump’s victory in the trade skirmish between United States and Mexico. Vinograd believed that Trump was being rewarded for “bad behavior” and being a “bully” by securing Mexico’s commitment to combat illegal immigration.
After putting pressure on Mexico with threats of escalating tariffs, President Trump’s hardball negotiation tactics finally got them to cave and take action to stem the flow of migrants looking to break into the U.S. It was a victory for the President the liberal media was forced to concede, much to their chagrin. But during Sunday Today, NBC News tried to downplay the win my suggesting Trump only achieved results that were already coming.
