From time to time, the liberal media will not only have their masks slip, but completely give away the store in terms of their partisan motivations and strategy. During Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC seemed to have done just that, conceding the trial to be the left’s latest attempt to remove President Trump out of office because they don’t like him.
2019 was another year of smashing success for the NewsBusters team as we had umpteen media stories to cover throughout the year, whether it was the Jussie Smollett debacle, the Mueller Report, impeachment, 2020 debates, and more online censorship. While it may seem repetitive, NewsBusters would be nowhere near what its become since its inception in 2005 without the support of beloved readers (and adversaries) who view us as essential reading.
On this Tuesday's New Day, after co-host Alisyn Camerota melodramatically wondered why ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page didn't speak out before, given "what she has lived with" due to President Trump's comments about her, CNN commentator Asha Rangappa, a former FBI agent, responded: "It goes to how civil servants . . . really have a culture of being apolitical, of not trying to get into partisan fights or in the crosshairs. It's not in their DNA."
On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued the liberal media’s attempt to force-feed the American people every twist and turn of the left’s attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. Following up on their Monday night celebrations that a federal judge ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress, the ABC and NBC newscasts boasted about this new “blow” and “scathing judgement.”
WASHINGTON — It has taken a long time, but finally the Justice Department is training its guns on what heretofore was unthinkable, unless you're a career civil libertarian. For years, the civil libertarians have been warning us that the Intelligence Community posed a threat to democracy as we know it in the United States.
WASHINGTON — How is the Democrats' impeachment inquiry going to turn out? Well, we've already been through the impeachment inquiry, though it was called by another name. It was called the collusion inquiry, and it turned out as most conservatives said it was going to turn out. They said there was no evidence, and Robert Mueller, who conducted the official inquiry, found no evidence. By the way, I insist that Mueller is an honorable man. His service to the country was notable. In my opinion, he is a hero in this epic battle between President Donald Trump and the Democrats.
It’s been awhile since our last slideshow, NewsBusters readers. Thankfully, Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC came up clutch with reams of liberal nonsense from not just host Chris Matthews, but a cast of characters serving as yes men and women for this pro-impeachment pep rally. From leveling conspiracy theories to engaging in conspiracy theories, it was another case study in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Back when reruns were a staple of summer programming, television networks aired repeats of their programs, giving viewers another opportunity to see what they had already seen. Democratic politicians are now conducting their own version of reruns. The same bunch who brought us the failed Russian “collusion” story, the sliming of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and charges that President Trump is a racist (which also failed, given the spectacular increase in minority employment), are now rerunning the same show with different characters.
Move over Robert Mueller, the liberal media have found a new love. With House Democrats announcing an impeachment inquiry against President Trump over his phone call with the president of Ukraine, the media promptly dropped the Special Counsel’s inconclusive Russia investigation in favor of the latest promise of Trump’s political downfall. Reporters even went so far as to admit Mueller’s two-year effort was a “confusing” and “convoluted” flop.
In a tweet that’s been so heavily ratio’d that it must make the disgraced Des Moines Register jealous, The New York Times Opinion Twitter account video-tweeted Thursday night a lame anti-Trump manifesto staged as a parody of the opening crawl to the Star Wars movies.
Estrella TV is normally known for its over-the-top, virulent coverage of all things pertaining to President Donald Trump. But as Impeachment Fever swaps the nation’s domestic Spanish-language media, Estrella has decided to asset some editorial independence.
Just as they were in their Wednesday morning special reports following the release of the transcript from the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, ABC and NBC were indignant and raging against the “unrepentant,” “untruthful” Trump following a press conference which they deemed to have been an incoherent mess.
