After an 11th- hour vote change from Senator Rand Paul (KY) Monday, CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination for Secretary of State was allowed to go to the full Senate for a confirmation vote. Defying expectations and an obstructionist Democratic Party, the progress of Pompeo’s nomination drew the ire of NBC Nightly News and Chief Foreign Affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell, whose report on the vote was filled with Democratic gripes and talking points.
For months, the liberal media soothsayers have claimed to be reading the bones and insist they see a “blue wave” coming to wipe out the Republican Party. Their hysteria went to a new level during Sunday’s Good Morning America when the folks at ABC tried to argue that since former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney didn’t win the Utah GOP nomination for Senate via the caucus and had to face a primary, it meant there was trouble brewing for the party.
The news of Barbara Bush’s passing wasn’t even an hour old Tuesday night when MSNBC host Chris Hayes had his All In panel use the news to malign the current state of the Republican Party. The liberal brought on anti-Trump Republican David Jolly and former Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer (CA) to discuss how the GOP had fallen so far since it’s heyday with the Bush dynasty.
In a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, MRC founder and president Brent Bozell ripped into the liberal tech giants for censoring conservative thought on their social media platforms. “This is emerging, the greatest censorship of free speech worldwide in the history of man,” he exclaimed, referring to the findings of the blockbuster study conducted by the MRC’s Ashley Rae Goldenberg and Dan Gainor.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell has a reputation as a liberal bomb thrower (and hater of hammering). And during Wednesday’s edition of The Last Word, he had his claws out for House Speaker Paul Ryan who earlier that day announced he was retiring. According to the MSNBC host, Ryan was a worse speaker than pedophile Dennis Hastert and the pre-Civil War speakers who owned slaves; all because “they were all more effective in their job as speaker than Paul Ryan,” who wouldn’t oppose Trump.
Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI) left much of Washington, D.C. stunned Wednesday when he announced his retirement from Congress after over 19 years in office. But while ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News reported on his retirement and touched on GOP struggles in the midterms, NBC Nightly News almost celebrated it. Correspondent Kasie Hunt called it a victory for Democrats by declaring “Ryan couldn't escape the building blue wave.”
HLN conservative S.E. Cupp has been on a roll this week with her show (S.E. Cupp Unfiltered) drawing attention to the media’s massive liberal bias. First, a CNN host admitted he let an anti-gun teen get away with falsehoods, then she and her panel tore into the media for unfairly smearing Trump’s recent hires as unqualified talking heads. On Thursday, she ratcheted up the criticism by calling them out for being hostile to conservative views and hiring ones whose principles were squishy.
On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that it would be reapplying a question about citizenship to the 2020 census form, a question that was removed by the Obama administration for 2010’s. While the CBS Evening News didn’t find it newsworthy, both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News dedicated time to stoking fear about the question being asked. They worried it could drive illegal immigrant communities into the shadows and cost Democrats valuable seats in the House.
Towards the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd set aside some time for the largely liberal panel to fawn over the so-called March for Our Lives gun control rally which was held in Washington, D.C. the day before. Not only did he allow the panel to heap praise on the gun control pushing kids, but he compared the march to the civil rights movement and the tea party rallies. He also bizarrely pitted their effectiveness against that of porn star Stormy Daniels.
Saturday was marked the so-called March for Our Lives rally where gun control advocates descended on Washington, DC to call for restrictions on Americans’ gun rights. Liberal journalists rejoiced as the event allowed them to put aside the illusion they were objective reporters and become active participants. MSNBC start the day off with Ali Velshi and Alex Witt attacking the NRA by claiming they didn’t want safer schools, shamming politicians who received donations, and dismissing those who prayed for victims.
Across the globe in India this past weekend, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton targeted rural Trump voters with yet another stream of hatred. She smeared them as depressed, backward, and white in an ignorant tirade before a foreign crowd. But on the Tuesday edition of HLN’s Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp unloaded on Clinton and called her out for being a “myopic self-centered self-righteous unaccountable and unrelatable political creature.”
On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, much to the chagrin of the liberal media. The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren’t out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But during their evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS downplayed the findings while NBC ignored them.
