On Friday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur was again putting on display her environmental liberalism and adherence to global warming alarmism as she spoke with liberal environmental activist Amy Westervelt, who hosts a podcast that rails against the fossil fuel industry. A bit later, as she handed off hosting duties to her colleague, Ali Velshi, she went into a rant about the issue, confessing that she regularly listens to Westervelt's left-wing podcast, titled Drilled, and argued that it "will make your blood boil along with the boiling temperatures we're experiencing."
Between Tuesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving week, a number of MSNBC hosts seized on the latest United Nations report making questionable predictions about a "dire" future, and pushing for regulations to cut carbon dioxide emissions. The hype included Chris Matthews accusing President Donald Trump of exploiting the push for regulations to advocate "idiot nationalism," and Katy Tur fretted that scientists have not been "alarmist" enough to persuade U.S. leaders to react.
In a laudable attempt to gauge the public’s attitudes on how to address gun violence in America, MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi traveled to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin and had a conversation with a panel of gun owners there, a video of which was shared during Thursday’s edition of his show. Twice during the aired portions of the discussion, the panel laughed at Velshi’s suggestions: companies pushing gun control and the idea of “gun buybacks.”
This afternoon on MSNBC, hosts and climate change propagandists Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle sat back and stayed silent as their Democrat guest made an absurdly comical declaration about climate change. While discussing the flooding in New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told the hosts the natural disaster was not only due to climate change, but they never had these natural disasters before.
In what looked more like a dystopian episode of Sesame Street than serious news coverage, during the 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC hyped Democrats following the “ABCs of impeachment” to go after President Trump. Liberal talking points were followed to letter, literally, as the segment detailed all of Trump’s alleged impeachable offenses.
As wildfires ravage California again, after last year’s deadliest wildfire season on record, the media wants you to remember: This is climate change’s fault. MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi explained this to his liberal audience on Tuesday’s MSNBC Live With Velshi and Ruhle, by touting data from a climate alarmist organization, and not offering any other viewpoints into his explainer segment.
Over the past couple of weeks, the dominant media have displayed a classic example of their double standard in deciding which police shootings are worthy of coverage and which are less so. The networks that repeatedly hype stories that give the wrong impression that nearly all police shooting victims are black -- even though about 75 percent are either white or Hispanic -- recently gave substantial attention to the trial of a white female police officer who killed an innocent unarmed black man, Botham Jean.
In the first hour since they finally acknowledged a bombshell New York Times story about liberal media confidant/Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) knowing in advance about the whistleblower being used to impugn the presidency, CNN’s The Lead and MSNBC Live circled the wagons on Wednesday afternoon to defend Schiff
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi on Friday and Monday lectured viewers that climate change isn’t a “partisan” issue. Instead, anyone who “breathes” should endorse the efforts to save the planet. This, of course, ignores the multi-trillion price tag for many of the Democratic plans to solve global warming. Talking to former Democratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee on Monday, Velshi insisted, “You have long believed that this shouldn't be, [that] governors can be very influential in changing, with respect to climate change. And that this shouldn’t really be partisan.”
MSNBC on Monday demonstrated how extreme the left can be on climate change, making comparisons to fighting World War II and the possible need of going vegan at some point in order to save the planet. Host Ali Velshi talked to Jonathan Safran Foer, the author of We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast.
On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi excitedly touted the new $16 trillion climate change plan put out by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and excused the massive price tag by lecturing viewers that “there’s a price to not doing anything or to doing too little.” He then brought on left-wing activists to further justify the extreme policy proposal.
Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
