In the wake of the release of the Mueller Report, New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks seems to have done some soul-searching and has concluded that President Donald Trump is owed an apology. Of course, among those who owe such an apology to Trump is Brooks himself as we shall see in his Tuesday column, "We’ve All Just Made Fools of Ourselves — Again."
Days after the Mueller report dropped with a thud, disappointing the vengeful left, the New York Times is hurriedly changing the subject and burying the lead, moving on from “collusion” to unsubstantiated hints that Trump could still be guilty of something. Tuesday’s front-page story found reporters desperately spinning the subject to “obstruction of justice” while smearing Attorney General Bob Barr’s motives: “Barr’s Move Ignites a Debate: Is He Impartial?”
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos kicked off the most recent edition of his Sunday political affairs show Al Punto by turning his attention to what really matters, and asking the most pressing question of the day: what do the Democrats want now?
Appearing on Fox News Monday evening, prominent attorney and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz touted the fact that he had “been right from day one” in his skepticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump. He also revealed that his routine criticism of the Russia probe caused him to “banned” from CNN.
With the Mueller report out and the top-line conclusions (no “collusion,” no obstruction of justice) thoroughly chewed over, the New York Times is clearly disappointed. A “live update” featured these petulant subheads, blaming the Republicans for taking political advantage of Trump’s vindication: “Trump immediately attacks ‘the other side.’ "“Minutes after the details are released, Republicans say it’s time to move on." And the paper’s former Washington bureau chief David Leonhardt bashed Attorney General Barr to pressure him to release the full report or else be condemned as Trump’s lackey.
MRC founder and president Brent Bozell appeared on Monday's Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream to discuss the end of Robert Mueller's investigation into the notion that President Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 campaign. "If the media truly were patriotic, they would be celebrating the vindication of their president, pure and simple."
Americans who expected any sort of real humility from the late night hosts in the wake of the Mueller report clearing Donald Trump were in for disappointment on Monday. Instead, the liberal comedians lashed out in disappointment and anger. Late Show host Stephen Colbert spat, “This weekend, we got some troubling news. Our president is not a Russian asset. Now, it just feels strange to say. Now, I say ‘troubling news’ because if Trump isn't working with the Russians, then what the hell is wrong with him?”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough makes an angry, ranting defense of the liberal media's coverage of the Mueller probe and alleged Russian collusion. He calls critics of the MSM "corrupt" and says they should be "ashamed."
Not only has the Mueller Investigation consumed the news media the last two years, its reach has also extended into entertainment television. Up until Friday, Hollywood celebrities were professing their love for Robert Mueller, so sure were they that the special prosecutor would find the evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians that would finally get him impeached.
Despite the efforts of some people in the “mainstream media” to downplay the information in Robert Mueller’s report that exonerates President Trump of collusion with Russia, at least one person has stepped in to point out the overwhelming bias on the issue over the past two years. While a guest on the America’s Newsroom program on Monday morning, veteran Fox News analyst Brit Hume hammered media coverage of the investigation, which he called not only “bad reporting,” but also “the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime.”
Sparks flew on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time Monday evening as President Trump’s outside lawyer Rudy Giuliani went toe-to-toe with host Chris Cuomo regarding the President’s vindication and the media’s new obstruction obsession post-Mueller report. In the middle of it, the former New York Mayor demanded Cuomo and CNN apologize for dragging the President down. Cuomo seemed disgusted by the prospect.
Spin, Spin, Spin! The famous Benny Goodman tune was "Sing, Sing, Sing" but one could be forgiven if the Spin tune title comes to mind along with the tune while reading Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne's furious and often laughable spin on what is obviously for him a very disappointing Mueller Report. His highly entertaining spin control took place on Sunday in "Six takeaways from Barr’s letter about Mueller’s probe."
