Despite having just addressed reporters and the nation on the coronavirus, President Donald Trump arrived Saturday in National Harbor, Maryland for his CPAC with his fastball. In an 84-minute speech, he reminded attendees, journalists, and viewers that CPAC shifted in the last four years from a gathering of thousands representing differing (and sometimes waring) factions on the right to thousands pulling in the same direction for Team Trump.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, commenting on the Trump administration's proposed Israeli/Palestinian peace plan, MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin told Reid that the plan fails to deliver on the Palestinian desire "not to live under a brutal Israeli military occupation that has now been for more than 50 years."
This week, the world marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Allied forces during World War II. Politicians of all stripes dutifully tweeted, “#NeverAgain.” Meanwhile, many of those same politicians continued to forward the worst sort of anti-Semitism, blithely ignoring the fact that anti-Semitism isn't a relic of the past but a thriving part of the present.
CNN's large impeachment panel took a brief break on Tuesday from impeachment for breaking news when President Trump announced his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. Of course, the panel had to tie it back to impeachment with John King saying that, just as impeachment is about alleged election interference, here was Trump trying to help Benjamin Netanyahu.
On Tuesday, President Trump along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and his challenger Benny Gantz, together announced a new peace plan to settle the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It was a plan that guaranteed a two-state solution, but during their evening newscasts, CBS and NBC chastised the plan and suggested it was just a ploy to save Trump from impeachment and Netanyahu from corruption charges.
One thing historians will say about President Obama was that he had an affinity for drone warfare for the purposes of taking out terrorists. In that respect President Trump was doing the same thing when he ordered that Qasem Soleimani be taken out, but that's not how MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell saw things on her Tuesday show.
TV game show “Jeopardy!” producers have responded to online uproar from Palestinian sympathizers over a controversial in-game question regarding the state of Israel.
CNN Right Now host Brianna Keilar was supposed to be interview Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly on Monday about the situation in Iran, but at times the viewer would be forgiven if they forgot just who the journalist was and who the politician was. Keilar called Trump's Farsi tweets expressing support for the protestors in Iran hypocritical due to his relationship with the press at home and urged Connolly to concur with the Iranian Foreign Ministry that such tweets were "dishonoring the Persian language."
With the murderous Iranian regime back in the headlines and the liberal media doing everything they could to make them look like victims of the United States (even after they shot down a passenger plane carrying 176 souls onboard), it’s worth taking a look at recent history and how the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have set up a smokescreen to hide Iran’s diabolical behavior. Here is a look back at NewsBusters reporting of the networks omitting new damaging to Iran.
Just last week, ABC’s World News Tonight ran a report telling viewers all about how the United States military was wrong to the say Iran wanted to kill U.S. troops when it fired missiles that hit two bases in Iraq, and pushed the unfounded conspiracy theory that Iran had intentionally missed. Then, on Monday, the military gave the press access to areas of Al Asad Air Base destroyed by the missiles, which included the living quarters for roughly 39 service members. ABC’s World News Tonight didn’t show any of the damage while they again bemoaned the anti-regime protests in Iran.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Ali Velshi Monday afternoon, New York Times foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi slammed the United States as a country that takes action “outside the law,” while praising Iran for supposedly showing “more restraint” amid tensions in the Middle East.
As the Iranian people rose up to protest the brutal totalitarian regime ruling their country, on Monday, ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz appeared on Good Morning America and lamented that the demonstrations were evidence of “Iran’s unity shattered,” only a week after she hailed the “massive and emotional” crowds that turned out to mourn terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.
