Once upon a time — in a galaxy far, far away — The New York Times and The Washington Post were the go-to papers when it came to uncovering political scandals. Both papers made a point of running the Pentagon Papers, an internal and secret U.S. government history of various presidents and their relevant Cabinet secretaries decision-making on American involvement in the Vietnam War. The Post, of course, was also famous for its birddogging young reporters Woodward and Bernstein and their digging out the details of the Watergate scandal.
Sorry but running for the U.S. Senate is just not good enough for me. On Thursday, presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attempted to reboot his failing campaign with a major speech in which he rabidly attacked President Donald Trump but may have ended up shooting himself in the boot. That is the conclusion of liberal Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake who proclaimed himself disgusted by the massive hubris displayed by O'Rourke's speech in El Paso when he stated that running for the U.S. Senate is not important enough for him.
MSNBC host Hallie Jackson revealed the gleeful response by Trump campaign sources to the Christmas gift the Democrats gave them at the second debate in Miami in the form of all agreeing to give free healthcare to illegal immigrants.
While the liberal media on-site spent portions of Thursday chastising President Trump for his Ingraham Angle interview in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial prior to his moving speech marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews told viewers that he was uneasy with his colleagues in the press “talk[ing] nasty boy politics in front of the graves.” How refreshing!
Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake ranked the 2020 Democratic presidential nominees on Saturday. He put Kamala Harris number one, with an "impressive" launch, "on-message and sharp." The Post is looking for an ultraliberal nominee, and somehow cannot see how that leaves a lot of room for voters to sniff extremism and vote to re-elect the president.
The battle for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Justice on the Supreme Court has resulted in a great tragedy. Michael Avenatti's appearances on television are likely due to be sharply cut back. Why? Because liberals in the mainstream media are now placing the blame for the failure of the Democrats to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation squarely at the feet of Avenatti.
With the liberal media unable to vocalize on camera their spin while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake should not submit his name for the "Fact Checker" desk at the Post. Because he's not good at it. He wrote a piece titled "Sarah Huckabee Sanders indicts the media -- on bogus, Trumped-up charges." His attempts to discredit her were the "bogus" words.
On Thursday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson cited a former Trump administration official criticizing cable news coverage that “wants to spend hours and hours dissecting the latest Trump tweet and yet they barely notice when we achieve long-sought conservative policy goals.” While Jackson claimed that such policy achievements did get air time, Washington Post Senior Political Reporter Aaron Blake argued that “the American people aren’t interested in” the president’s substantive accomplishments.
"When they go low, we go high." Yeah, you can pretty much throw that sentiment out the window since the liberals over the past few days have shown, with their harassment of people who either work for Trump or support him, they intend to go low. Very low. And among those excusing their uncivil behavior is one Aaron Blake, a Washington Post reporter of "The Fix" section. Blake performs an analysis of the harassment by liberals and determines that it is an "understandable reaction."
Over the weekend, bitter also-ran Hillary Clinton traveled to India to complain about losing to Donald Trump again. The story broke on Monday, but the complaints apparently weren’t jarring enough to disturb the Democrats at the networks. On Tuesday, Washington Post political blogger Aaron Blake reported it as "incendiary” and “pretty remarkable.” Only Fox News agreed.
On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting MSNBC Live at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections. Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake stepped in to inform them that it actually takes about six years of not voting for a purge to happen -- but even he still fretted that other states might use the Ohio law as precedent to be more restrictive.
