The July 25 episode of The Bold Type “If You Can’t Do It with Feeling,” ran with the idea of the Trump era creating a culture of fear and hate, and used that false fear to excuse violence by the left.
During the Monday edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota got into a surly argument with Scott Taylor, a Republican Congressman from Virginia and former SEAL (Sea, Air And Land officer) regarding whether the press should give extensive coverage of the tweets posted online by Donald Trump.
If there's ever a "most pathetic correction ever" contest, the one posted by the Associated Press late Friday afternoon, conveniently ahead of what for many Americans will be a very long holiday weekend, has to be a serious contender. The wire service won't even acknowledge that it's a correction at its APnews.com site, instead calling it a "clarification." No one should be fooled. The AP's folly appears to have been triggered by an appropriately labeled correction posted at the New York Times Thursday evening which, as Kristine Marsh at NewsBusters noted Friday morning, "admitted (that) one of the media’s major talking points about the (government's) Russia investigation wasn’t actually true."
On Thursday evening, CNN.com ran a story by reporter Thomas Frank which, according to a now-posted Editor's Note, connected "Anthony Scaramucci with (congressional) investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund." The Editor's Note tells the network's readers: "That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted." Further, "Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci." Then, in a Monday evening bombshell, Fox News's Howard Kurtz reported that "Three journalists (have) quit CNN in fallout from (the) retracted Russia story" — although it's possible they may have resigned instead of getting fired. What in the world happened?
President Donald Trump has been in office for almost five months. CNN's Kevin Liptak, whose network bio still brags about how he, as "White House producer," "has traveled the world covering President Obama," noted in a Saturday report updated Sunday morning that Trump and Obama "haven't spoken or seen each other" since Inauguration Day. Gosh, I wonder why?
The controversy over Kathy Griffin holding up a bloodied severed head of Donald Trump — an action which has led to her removal from CNN's New Year's Eve programming — reportedly spilled into the President's family when TMZ reported that the Trumps' 11-year son "Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image." TMZ says: "We're told he panicked and screamed, 'Mommy, Mommy!'"
The first of two Family Guy episodes that aired on Sunday night, “Dearly Deported,” played both sides of the immigration debate and threw in a random swipe at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka for good measure.
Former Navy SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) officer Carl Higbie defended Donald Trump even though he was surrounded by critics of the Republican president during a discussion that quickly turned into a hostile debate on the Cable News Network during Tuesday, May 16.
Liberals and Democrats continue hammering away at President Donald Trump on a daily basis in a variety of formats, but Jimmy Kimmel, the host of ABC’s late-night talk show, found a new way to slam the Republican occupant of the White House. Using a Schoolhouse Rock-style video entitled “I’m Just a Lie,” Kimmel managed to hammer away not only at Trump, but also Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, had strong words on Friday, May 12, for the show's rival on the Cable News Network: "You've got to stop putting [White House Counselor] Kellyanne Conway on the air. It's politics porn."
A guest on the MSNBC cable channel on Thursday, May 11 -- who had once worked for the KGB intelligence agency -- compared President Donald Trump and his clashes with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the disdain former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin had for his own secret service.
Longtime Hardball host Chris Matthews used a segment of his weekday MSNBC program on Wednesday, May 10, to slam President Donald Trump’s firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, going so far as to call the incident “a little whiff of fascism.”
The liberal anchor stated that he had “never seen a faster reaction by Democratic senators that I heard in the last hour or so,” claiming that the termination has caused them to “want a special prosecutor now more than ever.”
