During MSNBC's coverage of the Nevada caucus, Joy Reid says that by tweeting that he will not let the Democratic establishment stop him, Bernie Sanders is "kicking to the curb" 65 million Hillary Clinton voters, among others. Reid also describes as "Trumpy" Sanders's criticism of the Washington Post for waiting until one day before the Nevada caucus to release the month-old news that the Sanders campaign had been briefed on the fact that Russia is seeking to intervene to aid his campaign.
As of Thursday, there were two sets of data from respected pollsters that showed President Trump pulling ahead his Democratic rivals nationally and in at least one key swing state. But conveniently leaked information to The New York Times provided excellent cover to ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News as it allowed them to ignore the polls and set the groundwork to falsely claim any Trump victory in November was the sole result of Russian interference.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
The first three words of CNN’s analysis after Wednesday’s Nevada Democratic presidential debate, provided by chief political analyst Gloria Borger, summed up the panel’s consensus: “Bloomberg was awful.” Whether it was comparisons to the Titanic or getting punched in the face, the criticism only got worse as the liberal panel began to mock former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for being grossly unprepared to field the obvious questions about his record.
Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show predicts pure doom and despair for Democrats. A.B. Stoddard predicted that at tonight's Democrat debate in Nevada, the candidates are sure to focus their fire on Mike Bloomberg, letting Bernie Sanders off the hook. That in turn would lead to his nomination. Stoddard foresaw Sanders getting "slaughtered" in the general election, with President Trump winning a "huge mandate." Steve Schmidt then said that a Sanders candidacy, given his plan to take private health insurance policies away from 150 million Americans, would be a "death sentence" for the Democrats. And John Heilemann envisioned Bernie and Bloomberg "slugging it out" for months to come, leaving the Democrat party unable to put itself back together.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says of Joe Biden, "I'm not doing his bidding. I'm just telling you the truth." And the truth, according to Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, is that Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders would be weak candidates, whereas Biden would have the best chance of defeating President Trump.
While ABC and CBS were largely putting aside the many controversies of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to tout his rapid rise in the polls Tuesday, Leta Hong Fincher, the wife of a former award-winning Bloomberg News reporter was busy reminding the public of how Bloomberg censors his reporters who cover China and threatens those that don’t submit.
Seemingly finished with reporting Tuesday on the alleged racism and sexism controversies of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News took to touting his rise in the polls and subsequent qualification for the Democratic debate in Nevada. It had CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell marveling at how Bloomberg's “surge” in the polls puts him in “second place” nationally and “puts him over the top” to get on the stage.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Chris Matthews urges Bernie Sanders's primary opponents to "punch" at him, and tell him, "you're full of it." He warns that with Sanders as their candidate, Democrats could lose 49 states, as they did in 1972 with far-left George McGovern.
The liberal broadcast networks did all they could to smear gun rights advocates who gathered in Virginia’s capital last month. They framed the advocates as terrorists, white supremacists, and generally violent. When they were proven wrong, they still invoked images of violence and lied about violence occurring. But on Monday, the hard work of those advocates paid off when an assault weapons ban was blocked by bipartisan opposition. Of course, the gun-rights agenda was not the network agenda, so it was ignored in favor of railing against Attorney General William Barr.
In a possible attempt to give flailing Democrats some positive spin after a couple of difficult weeks, NBC political director and Meet the Press moderator, Chuck Todd appeared on Sunday Today to insist President Trump was “sabotaging” his own reelection efforts. On top of that, Todd argued that the President was quaking in his boots by the idea he could be competing against former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Where does MSNBC find these so-called "Republicans?" A guest on Al Sharpton's show tonight was Rina Shah, whom Sharpton introduced as a "Republican strategist." In the course of her appearance, Shah said that President Trump "tends to speak out of his rear end." She later said that Trump is "racist to his core."
