On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi joined in the liberal news network's recent spate of Bible-thumping to justify left-wing policy as he actually took out a large Christian Bible and read from it on camera. He also voiced agreement with his guest, Father James Martin, as the Jesuit priest declared that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "weaponizing the Gospels and the Bible" against illegal immigrants.
During MSNBC’s breaking news coverage of Friday’s Texas school shooting, former ATF agent and NBC News law enforcement analyst Jim Cavanaugh took time to attack President Trump for commenting on the tragedy at a White House event, dismissing those remarks of sympathy for the victims as “empty words” since the President had not pushed for gun control.
MSNBC freaked out on Friday morning, offering multiple segment on the Trump administration’s new restrictions on funding for clinics that provide abortions or refer women to those who do. An MSNBC graphic provided the typically slanted tone: “Targeting Women’s Rights.” Well, apparently there’s no debate then.
MSNBC personalities seem to think that protests can feature participants throwing bombs and rocks and still be "peaceful" at the same time. On Monday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle opened their show noting that several acts of violence had been perpetrated. But, just two minutes later, they complained about Jared Kushner accusing protesters of "provoking violence" as the MSNBC hosts seemed to think the riots had been "peaceful."
On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi was joined by NBC News international correspondent Cal Perry to discuss the current protests on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip. The two glossed over the terrorist group Hamas's provocative actions using the protests for cover, and highlighted left-wing Israelis accusing the Jewish state of running a "brutal occupation" without noting their history of bias against Israel.
Despite recent months of intense anti-gun activism, on Tuesday, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were aghast that the National Rifle Association actually broke a fundraising record in the month of March. The pair implored their left-wing viewers to “pay attention” and that they “shouldn’t kid” themselves about the effectiveness of their protests.
Throughout MSNBC’s Friday coverage of student walk-outs across the country to demand gun control, the liberal cable channel’s anchors and correspondent could barely contain their excitement about the prospect of those anti-gun protesters mobilizing to vote pro-gun rights Republicans out of office in the November midterms.
On Friday afternoon, MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi provided a forum to former PLO advisor Diana Buttu to push anti-Israel propaganda as she accused the Jewish state of engaging in "ethnic cleansing" against Palestinian Arabs whom she portrayed as simply engaging in peaceful protest since last week. It was not mentioned that the terrorist group Hamas has been using the protesters at the Gaza Strip border as cover to try to attack Israel.
Saturday was marked the so-called March for Our Lives rally where gun control advocates descended on Washington, DC to call for restrictions on Americans’ gun rights. Liberal journalists rejoiced as the event allowed them to put aside the illusion they were objective reporters and become active participants. MSNBC start the day off with Ali Velshi and Alex Witt attacking the NRA by claiming they didn’t want safer schools, shamming politicians who received donations, and dismissing those who prayed for victims.
On Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi both on separate occasions highlighted a Nazi and perennial congressional candidate in Illinois who won the Republican nomination by default because no other candidates filed to run in the heavily Democratic district. Ruhle did not mention that Republicans have condemned his most recent congressional run -- only noting that they have done so in the past -- as she hinted that the GOP had "decided" this time not to run a candidate against him and that they were essentially "Yup, that's our guy."
When the startling news broke late Thursday that President Trump had accepted an invitation to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, the media intelligentsia begrudgingly shifted their focus away from the Stormy Daniels controversy. But with the leak of an e-mail sent by Trump’s lawyer from his Trump Organization account, they leapt on the excuse to return to their preferred topic.
For the week of March 5, MSNBC’s coverage put the liberal media’s biased gatekeeping practices on full display. After feverishly reporting on favorable Democratic early voting numbers during the first half of the week, many of the same shows fell silent on Thursday concerning a new Axios poll which suggested Republicans might be better situated for the upcoming midterms than many had previously expected.
