Friday’s NBC Nightly News capped an ugly 24 hours for the liberal media after U.S. airstrikes killed Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani by doubling down on its bias, flashing outrageous chyrons, and fluffing pillows for the Iranians over the course of nearly 12 minutes of coverage. With help from anchor Lester Holt’s August visit to Tehran, this kowtow came at the expense of the President and supporters of the strike as that side only fetched about two minutes of either direct soundbites or attributions.
Harvey Weinstein accuser and former Charmed actress Rose McGowan, believes the killing of one of Iran’s top commanders Major General Qasem Soleimani is proof that the U.S. has been the terrorist all along. To say the least, the troubled Hollywood actress went on a social media tirade after President Trump ordered the killing of the terrorist regime’s high ranking security and intelligence commander Maj. Gen. Soleimani.
Apps collect data about their users. What happens when a foreign government owns that data? The U.S. military did not want to find out. According to an NBC News report, the Defense Information Systems Agency advised employees to avoid using the app, TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese regulated company ByteDance.
In the past week, in the aftermath of the shooting attack that killed three U.S. Navy sailors on a military base in Pensacola, Florida, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends show has given substantial attention to the problem of most troops not being allowed to carry weapons on base. In several segments this week, the show highlighted the views of several Navy troops who are speaking out on the issue.
Tuesday's Fox & Friends highlighted the problem of American troops not being allowed to carry their own weapons for self-defense on some military bases as the Fox News show hosted the family of Pensacola Naval Air Station shooting victim Joshua Watson.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show today, MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance went on a rant about Trump's pardoning of Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and other members of the military. Among other things, speaking of the Telly Savalas character in The Dirty Dozen—a murderer and rapist—Nance said: "It's almost as if Donald Trump thought, 'hey, that's my favorite character!' He has a mindset of where he thinks his personal toughness is men doing horrible things."
Putting his life at risk by traveling to a war zone, President Trump traveled secretly to Afghanistan to spend Thanksgiving with our troops on the ground, he even served them dinner. It was something special but ABC and NBC refused to check their petty politics at the door. In addition to reporting on his holiday visit, those networks decided to serve up the attacks of former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, who chose to resign recently after disagreeing with the President.
The liberal media is not known for its deep and abiding respect for the US military. Yet in the opening segment alone of today's Morning Joe, there were no fewer than nine instances of members of the panel referring to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as a "hero" or Purple Heart recipient. For good measure, Mike Barnicle melodramatically described him as "wearing the cloth of our country." What accounts for such a sudden onset of hero worship? The answer's obvious: since the Democrats and MSM see Vindman as a key impeachment witness against President Trump, it suits their political purposes to celebrate his status, lending credence to his testimony.
It was general versus general this Veteran’s Day on NBC’s Bluff City Law. After a malfunctioning GPS product kills several soldiers in misdirected airstrikes, Elijah Strait’s former mistress Gen. Virginia Howe seeks Strait and Associates help to expose the faulty product before it claims more lives.
Veterans Day might not be until Monday, but USA’s The Purge started things off with its own rotten take on the day. Like most things this series does, it’s tone-deaf, spiteful of America, and perverts any good feeling about anything patriotic. It’s almost a tradition for liberal shows at this point.
Former Speechwriter to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and retired Navy Commander Guy Snodgrass is out with a book that purports to be an insider's of what it was like at the Pentagon during Mattis' time as defense chief. As Sondgrass tells it, Trump's foreign and defense policy is a dangerous one that undermines alliances and is driven out of a petty desire to undermine former President Obama's legacy. Naturally, this had led to Songrass's book receiving positive reviews from the media. On Wednesday, Snodgrass found himself on CNN Right Now on to talk about the book, but one critic's take was noticeably absent.
Only extreme partisans intent on denying President Trump any credit for any success would be critical of the operation he ordered that resulted in the death of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. These extreme partisans include Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, while praising the “heroism” of the special unit that conducted the raid on al-Baghdadi's location in Northern Syria, could not bring herself to say anything nice about the president. Instead, she said the House should have been notified in advance.
