Over the weekend, allegations of domestic violence by Democratic Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison surfaced claiming he “emotionally and physically” abused his then-longtime girlfriend Karen Monahan. The allegations were serious enough for news outlets like Fox News and CNN to cover but ABC and NBC failed to do so. And while they covered the story Monday morning, CBS dropped it come that evening.
During Thursday afternoon’s MSNBC Live, host Katy Tur interviewed two of the network’s favorite Republicans, Never Trumpers Elise Jordan and Steve Schmidt. Tur pointed out that Jordan and Schmidt are the hosts of a new podcast called “Words Matter.” Schmidt went on a tirade against the current Republican Party, which he called “the party of Trump,” going so far as to say that “it needs to burn to the ground.”
During her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted a July poll from the left-wing Center for American Progress that unsurprisingly found that a majority of respondents thought Republicans were “more corrupt” than Democrats. Tur quoted the biased survey results from a Politico article entitled: “Corruption message gaining traction against GOP.”
Thursday’s New York Times showed itself all too eager to use new charges against Republican Rep. Chris Collins of New York to help Democrats. The front-page story was accompanied by an over-the-fold photograph of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman announcing the charges against Collins, which the photo caption took care to identify as a Republican. The paper piled on with a story inside by Goldmacher, showing the paper already taking a sharp pro-Democratic partisan angle on the November elections. Contrast that instant identification by the New York Times to how the paper covered a Democratic congresswoman convicted and sentenced to five years in prison.
They either know they’re pushing a false claim or they need to get their heads checked. On Monday evening, the liberal broadcast networks of ABC and NBC continued their fake news campaign by pushing a false claim that President Trump only recently admitted the infamous Trump Tower meeting was for opposition research, when, in fact, he admitted it over a year ago.
New York Times reporters Michael Shear and Adam Liptak’s review of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his involvement in Ken Starr’s independent counsel investigation of President Bill Clinton, made the front page of Sunday’s edition. It conveniently served as a defense of the Clintons against the “puritanical” “hatred” of Republicans: “Court Pick, Soldier in the Battle to Impeach Clinton, Has Regrets.” The reporters's opening and closing quotes are from former Clinton adviser current Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, surely a nonpartisan source of objective wisdom on the matter at hand.
In the first ten minutes of Thursday’s Morning Joe, co-hosts and lovers Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President’s early-morning tweetstorm criticizing the Russia probe, referred to Fox News hosts as “pro-Russian dupes,” and accused anyone who wants to end the Mueller investigation of “doing the bidding of an ex-KGB spy.” In addition, panelist Mike Barnicle described President Trump’s base as “deranged.”
On Thursday, at the direction of President Trump, America’s national security and intelligence chiefs lined up and spoke from the White House briefing room to reassure the country that they were doing everything in their power to combat Russian meddling in our elections. It was something the liberal media had been crying about for a long time, but the liberal media can never be pleased as CNN and MSNBC hosts decried the timing, moving the goal post.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota understated former Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken's history of sexual harassment as she asked Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar if she thinks he should run for Congress again.
It was only a matter of time before the liberal media’s derangement got so out of control that they would start accusing the entire conservative movement of working for Russian interests, and it finally happened. During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd used the recent indictment of Russian national, Marina Butina to suggest that not only was the National Rifle Association infiltrated by Russians but “all levels of the conservative movement” were as well.
During Sunday’s edition CNN’s Inside Politics, host John King was frustrated with President Trump’s supporters, both in the media and elsewhere, for what he suggested was their double standard on lying politicians. But in doing so, he exposed CNN’s own shifting standards for what they would and wouldn’t hold Democratic leaders accountable for.
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd decided to thrill viewers on Thursday’s MTP Daily with a highly analytical deep dive into President Trump’s tweets, focusing specifically on whether they might somehow constitute obstruction of justice. Sometimes, a single leak or piece of information can drive an entire news cycle. Such was the case on Thursday when The New York Times reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was examining the President’s tweets in his “wide-ranging obstruction inquiry.”
