In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.
In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.
During Wednesday’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham pointed out how the media strenuously objects to the use of the word “mob” to describe left-wing protesters but did not seem to mind using the word “mob” at all when describing tea party protesters back in 2009.
Following the Senate’s confirmation vote to elevate Brett Kavanaugh to an associate justice of the Supreme Court, a radical pack of leftist protesters descended on the highest court in the land. Together, some scaled the statues while others clawed and banged on the historic building's massive bronze doors. By all reasonable accounts, it was a raging mob but the liberal media despised that term. During Wednesday’s edition of his show, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson chastised the media for their nonsense.
During Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the left grew more brazen and would openly proclaim their radical beliefs and tout such tactics. With calls for the abandonment of civility and the apparent encouragement of violence, one would think it deserved some form of critical airtime from the media. But since the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were in the tank for the Democrats, they didn’t think it was newsworthy Wednesday evening.
In the midst of the Kavanaugh show trial with the Senate Judiciary Committee back on September 27, longtime Democratic staffer Jackson Cosko released personal information (including the home addresses) for Republican members of the committee.This act of “doxxing” went all but ignored by the liberal media for almost two weeks. On Tuesday, a judge denied him bail and the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their total blackout.
After defending the liberal media’s anti-Brett Kavanaugh crusade Saturday night, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter got rebuked by former CNN bureau chief Frank Sesno on Sunday. According to Sesno, the media’s coverage of President Trump was “unrelentingly negative”. He then ripped into the utter lack of standards the media employed before running with uncorroborated allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.
Many in the liberal media scoff when President Trump or others on the right point out that leftists pay protesters to show up and organize. During ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the network’s chief White House correspondent Jon Karl sought to discredit the assertion since the President noted it at a rally the previous night. But he didn’t appear to get the answer he was looking when Vice News D.C. Bureau Chief Shawna Thomas appeared to admit that there were people paid to organize.
It was like election night 2016 all over again for the liberal media hit squads that tried desperately to sink Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The liberal media were so incensed that they were describing it as one of the darker times in American history and started to call the court’s legitimacy into question. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist was so confused by their radical tactics failing that his first question was simple: “what just happened over the last month?”
With Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh newly sworn into the Supreme Court, CNN host S.E. Cupp wanted to discuss how “the media has played a starring role” in tearing down the Judge during her Unfiltered program. CNN media reporter Brain Stelter joined her Saturday evening where they defended the media’s antics and downplayed their anti-Kavanaugh fervor as simple “sloppiness.”
In a grade-A case of hypocrisy and double standards Thursday, it became clear it’s only the liberal media and Democrats who were allowed to rail against FBI investigations as illegitimate. After spending well over a year decrying President Trump’s attacks on the Special Counsel investigation, it was their turn to claim an FBI investigation was rigged. During World News Tonight, ABC became a mouthpiece for the left.
On Wednesday, Capital Police arrested longtime Democratic staffer and intern Jackson Cosko for releasing the personal information of GOP Senators onto the internet during the Kavanaugh hearing last week. Despite the seriousness of the disturbing act known as “doxxing”, all three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored his arrest Thursday morning. CNN touched on the case Thursday afternoon but refused to report he’s a Democrat and he was targeting Republicans on the Judiciary Committee.
