All eyes were on Florida’s contentious ballot recount in gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races as Democratically aligned elections supervisors in Broward and Palm Beach Counties were accused of elections shenanigans by GOP Senate candidate, Governor Rick Scott. Despite Florida court rulings against the supervisors for their illegal handling of ballots, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) downplayed the idea that anything was amiss.
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is known for saying ridiculous things seriously and pretending they’re reasonable while leaving everyone else scratching their heads. He even once suggested it would be “okay” if CNN’s ratings would plummet 40 percent after President Trump left office. Well, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Stelter beclowned himself when he suggested the liberal media somehow “underplayed” the size of the so-called “blue wave” that supposedly swept the nation on Election Day.
As the contentious Florida gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races moved on to a mandatory machine recount, they do so under a cloud corruption as Democratic election officials were accused of voter fraud and other forms of misconduct. Despite the fact that Florida courts had already ruled twice against Democrats, ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning new programs ignored the orders for transparency. The networks preferred to keep the truth hidden.
On her MSNBC show today, discussing Republican criticism of Broward Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes, Joy Reid says: "here is the way they are treating Brenda Snipes, who is the long-time Election Supervisor there, who by the way is an older black woman in the Deep South."
The same night the liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were acting as though Trump’s combative press conference on Wednesday was some kind of affront to the First Amendment, the Washington D.C. area home of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was under assault by a radical leftist mob shouting threats. During both their morning and evening broadcasts Thursday, ABC and NBC ignored the actual attack on someone’s free speech.
The group known as “Smash Racism DC” on social media posted a video of their antics on Twitter, which had since been deleted by the site. But the video could still be found on Facebook. In the video, radical leftist agitators can be heard threatening Carlson and his family by chanting: “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
In the midst of their midterm results coverage on Wednesday, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News touted the diversity of the Democratic Party’s field of winners. But in the process, they celebrated the election of Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. The problem? She’s been accused of anti-Semitism because of her anti-Israel stance.
Despite the fact that Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp held a lead outside the threshold needed for a runoff, Democrats and the liberal media were not conceding the state’s gubernatorial election. During CNN’s Election Night in America in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst April Ryan was in hysterics as she pushed conspiracies of voter suppression, even going so far as to say voting right didn’t exist anymore.
Election Night 2018 was a mixed bag that left both parties walking away feeling happy. Republicans blunted the so-called “blue wave” and captured key governorships while Democrats flipped control of the House. During CNN’s Election Night in America, Tuesday, liberal activist and commentator Van Jones was a whirlwind of emotions as each development unfurled.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
As the first polls began the close, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were touting how confident the Democrats appeared despite lingering worries from 2016. As they were nearing the end of their political coverage for World News Tonight, ABC anchor David Muir noted: “the Democrats are projecting confidence as well, as you might expect.”
A group of partisan, progressive athletes that includes current social justice warriors, kneeling NFL players, a past Olympic protester and others, has signed a last-minute get-out-the-vote letter.
