On Monday's The Situation Room, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went over the top into hyperbole by claiming that President Donald Trump's dismissal of both Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and his brother from their jobs at the White House amounted to "North Korean-style punishment of the whole family." They were executed?
On the morning after President Donald Trump delivered his 2020 State of the Union address, there was further evidence of how heavily skewed toward the left that CNN has become as New Day did not feature a single pro-Trump guest to react to the speech. But the four-hour special edition of the flagship morning show did make time for three Democratic members of Congress and one liberal Republican CNN contributor to react negatively to the President's words.
During a surprisingly contentious interview with former Vice President Joe Biden conducted over weekend and aired on Monday, NBC’s Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie repeatedly pressed the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate on his son Hunter’s suspicious business dealings in Ukraine, even labeling them “sleazy.” Biden quickly snapped and lashed out amid the scrutiny.
Liberal NPR is getting some great PR during impeachment regarding its recent spat with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The outlet recently boasted an increase in donations as a result of the whole kerfuffle.
On New Day, CNN "senior political analyst" John Avlon offers the preposterous proposition that John Bolton's prospective testimony at the impeachment trial would be "the equivalent of Nixon's smoking gun tape."
Monday on The View, the hosts defended NPR as an unbiased news outlet after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yelled at one of their reporters and called her dishonest after a contentious interview. Co-host Meghan McCain wondered if the spat was over the reporter’s liberal bias, the other hosts jumped in to defend NPR and its reporter as unbiased while claiming Pompeo was the one, “not telling the truth.”
On a special Saturday edition of CNN Tonight, CNN host Don Lemon cracked up laughing as his guests derided the intelligence of both President Donald Trump and his "boomer rube" supporters. Don Lemon, laughing at the dummies.
Without providing any evidence, ABC News made headlines on Friday when they claimed they had heard an audio recording of President Trump ordering the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine to be fired, something that would supposedly aid Democrats with impeachment. Both CBS News and NBC News pounced on the reporting during their evening newscasts despite the fact ABC had not released the audio or commented on its authenticity.
Joe Scarborough has once again assumed his role as a strategic advisor to the Democrats. On Morning Joe, Scarborough warns Democrats that it would be a "sucker's deal" for them to trade testimony by Hunter Biden for that of John Bolton at the impeachment trial.
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Gloria Borger filed a pre-recorded report in which she misleadingly portrayed liberal California Democratic Congressman and impeachment manager Adam Schiff as a "moderate" as she recounted his political career. Borger did not clarify that his voting record has never been moderate, and, after his already Democratic district became even more strongly liberal in 2013, Schiff further distanced himself from moderates by resigning from the Blue Dog Coalition.
Question: in addition to her duties as an NBC correspondent, is Heidi Przybyla also serving as a PR flack for the Biden campaign? You have to wonder after watching Przybyla's performance today on Morning Joe. Przybyla didn't merely highlight the memo that the Biden campaign has put out as a pre-emptive response to charges of Ukraine corruption—she passionately embraced the memo's findings.
CNN commentator Joe Lockhart spouted the conspiracy theory that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo possibly could have allowed "a Benghazi" against Marie Yovanovitch, who at the time was the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.
