War on Terrorism
Just like clockwork, following Tuesday’s ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in New York City, the liberal media quickly painted American Muslims as the real victims. In a story published on NBCNews.com just hours after a jihadist used a rental truck to kill eight people and injure twelve others in lower Manhattan, reporter Chris Fuchs warned: “In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Muslim Americans and community leaders expressed concerns over how their religion would be perceived and whether Muslims would become targets of violence.”
In the aftermath of Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City, Wednesday’s Morning Joe devoted most of their broadcast to the story, with the hosts and guests repeatedly trashing President Trump for his tweets suggesting that tougher restrictions on immigration were needed to prevent future attacks by immigrants like the Uzbek national who killed eight people. The liberal panelists were also upset by Trump pointing out that Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer supported the visa lottery program that reportedly allowed the terrorist into the U.S. back in 2010.
Just hours after news broke that a radical inspired by ISIS drove into a bikepath, killing eight people and injuring over a dozen others, MSNBC was already out deflecting blame from the radical religious ideology behind the attack. The network’s terrorism analyst, Malcolm Nance, defended Islam, saying it wasn’t responsible for Tuesday’s terror attack. He even brought Christianity into the mix, saying that sometimes Christians were responsible for terror.
The morning after a deadly terror attack in lower Manhattan, journalists in the left-wing media couldn’t get their heads around a deadly attack that didn’t involve guns. Eight people were killed and several others injured in New York City Tuesday afternoon, after an Islamic radical motivated by ISIS mowed down pedestrians in a bike path. Liberal journalists took to Twitter, and some even used their news programs, to complain about gun control and call out President Trump for calling the act terrorism right away, which he didn’t do after Las Vegas.
Only a few hours into their coverage of the deadly terror attack in New York City on Tuesday, CNN found it more important to break away to continue to their Robert Mueller marathon. “A terror attack that killed eight people and injured a dozen others when a man in a truck mowed down bike riders and pedestrians on the west side. Much more on that coming up,” declared Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room. “But we have another breaking story we're following right now. President Trump and the Russia investigation.”
Monday was supposed to be the sentencing hearing for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, but his lawyer motioned to dismiss the case and asserted that President Trump’s critical comments during the 2016 election swayed the military court. Both CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News seemed to buy into the claims as they lamented how the admitted deserter would have to wait until Wednesday to learn his fate. They also omitted his praise for his Taliban captors.
During Wednesday’s edition of HLN's Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp was outraged over the fact that much of the media coverage this week in and around D.C. has centered around what President Trump may or may not have said to a Gold Star family instead of demanding answers for the ambush in Niger. “It's a little empty to be outraged over what the President did or didn't say to these Gold Star families. If you're not also asking: Why they are now gold star families,” she lamented to her panel.
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, Democratic congresswoman Frederica Wilson was brought on to discuss her allegations that President Trump was extremely inappropriate and disrespectful towards the recently widowed wife of an American soldier killed in action in Niger.
In a military courtroom in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on Monday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faces up to life in prison. Back in 2014, President Obama traded five dangerous terrorists to get Bergdahl back, and in a flawed political calculation, championed him as a 'hero.' Despite the massive blowback that followed the ill-advised move, the Big Three Networks omitted that from their Monday evening reports.
On Friday afternoon, CNN didn’t take too well to President Trump’s speech decertifying the Iran nuclear deal, but it was CNN International host Christiane Amanpour who was the hardest hit, bemoaning the President correctly asserting Iran as evil and arguing that all this will make Israel and the U.S. far less safe.
The CW’s new military drama Valor premiered on Monday night and I was expecting the worst. Not only is The CW the home to many outspokenly liberal programs, but the main character is supposed to be the first female helicopter pilot in an Army special operations unit. That’s just a recipe for virtue signaling disaster.
I had hopes for SEAL Team being one of the rare pro-America shows on the air. The October 4 episode "Other Lives," however, portrayed many of our Navy SEALs, one of our country's most elite fighting forces, as immoral and anti-American. Only team leader Jason (David Boreanaz) was consistently the voice of truth, justice and the American way throughout the episode.
