In a viral moment from an auto plant in Detroit Tuesday, a raging Joe Biden lashed out and threatened to assault (slap) an autoworker who confronted him about his support for curtailing Second Amendment rights. The threat was omitted by all the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and Univision, with CNNEE and Telemundo ignoring the incident altogether. But what NBC Nightly News did was particularly deceptive in that they completely cut around Biden’s threat of physical violence.
One of the common mottoes liberals love to use is: “Do As I Say, Not As I Do.” That was the case on Wednesday, February 12, when host Cenk Uygur -- creator of The Young Turks news and commentary television program -- insisted that his employees not create a union. The reason Uygur gave for his hypocritical stance was that it would force the small network into bankruptcy even though it would contradict the company’s “worker-first” ethos and its attempt to enhance profits to keep the outlet functional.
On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-N.Y.), sat for a discussion with author Ta-Nehisi Coates. She dropped a number of shocking statements -- statements that elicited nothing but murmurs of agreement from Coates. AOC claimed: “No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars.” How, pray tell, are American billionaires responsible for such massive theft? According to AOC, the very mechanisms of capitalism mandate such theft.
It seemed only natural that January 19's 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on TNT and TBS would get political. Why is that? Well, known Trump-basher Robert De Niro was being honored with a life achievement award.
The NBC sitcom Superstore consistently promotes propaganda that is both pro-union and pro-illegal immigration. The “Superstore” of the title is meant to be a stand-in for Wal-Mart, a regular punching bag of the left that has actually raised the standard of living for Americans living in poorer areas.
As part of their new “What Matters” series, the segment they admitted was only meant to gauge the interests of Democratic voters, Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News sat down with Senator and 2020 hopeful Amy Klobuchar (MN) and asked her how she would help to strengthen unions in America.
Last season, the NBC comedy Superstore ended with a dramatic ICE arrest. During last season’s finale, the audience was supposed to feel sympathy for Mateo (Nico Santos), the illegal immigrant who stole a woman’s identification to get his job. The season premiere, “Cloud 9.0,” on September 26 began with a vigil by the Cloud 9 store’s employees to protest their illegal co-worker's detainment.
Credit where it’s due: During Wednesday’s evening newscasts, CBS Evening News was the only network news program to report on the FBI’s expansive raids of current and former leaders of the United Auto Workers union. The corruption probe had been going on for four years and netted numerous convictions. Despite all of that, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News completely ignored the story.
For everybody enjoying Vox Media and Bernie Sanders Campaign union workers revolting over their liberal overlords’ hypocrisy, here’s a new one for you: The pro-abortion site Rewire.News is getting hit from the left for laying off union members.
Education and charges of de facto segregation have been causing quite the conversation in the Democratic Party since Kamala Harris and Joe Biden's on-stage fight over busing at the recent Democratic debate. They have argued that it is just horrible that minority students are trapped in failing schools. On Friday's edition of MSNBC Live host Yasmin Vossoughian welcomed Heidi Przybyla and NPR White House Reporter Ayesha Rascoe to hype Democratic candidates speaking the National Education Association, the country's largest union and one of the organizations that is preventing those minority students from going to potentially better schools.
As NewsBusters reported Monday night, NBC News has launched a new report series dedicated to promoting the “big ideas” put forward solely by Democratic 2020 candidates ahead of the debates in a few weeks. Tuesday’s edition followed California Senator Kamala Harris as she campaigned in South Carolina to jack up the death tax to pay for an increase in teacher salaries.
Even liberal newsrooms have to grapple with economic realities, as Vox Media may be learning.
