Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report has cleared President Trump of colluding with the Russians to win the 2016 election, there has been plenty of blame to go around for the many news outlets that relentlessly implied President Trump was in deep trouble, and might be impeached when Mueller was finished. One of the most bizarre responses came from CNN President Jeff Zucker, who told the New York Times in an email on Sunday that “we are not investigators,” an interesting comment since the cable channel has its own Special Investigations Unit.
The New York Times devoted 2,200 words on the front of its Sunday Review opinion section to “Can Peer Pressure Defeat Trump?” The text box: “Democrats need millennials to turn out. These apps can help.” But the piece, which cheerleads for liberal millennials to pressure their friends into voting against Trump in 2020, didn’t come from an outside liberal writer, but Amy Chozick -- who covered the Hillary Clinton campaign for the paper in 2016. Now billed as a “writer at large," she no longer has to try to be objective -- not that she tried overly hard on the Clinton campaign.
This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, we're reviewing the most idiotic quotes of the year. Journalists making the cut this year include Chris Matthews wanting “thought and prayers” to be “outlawed,” The New York Times telling readers that communist theorist Karl Marx was “right,” and CNN’s Jim Sciutto scaring his audience about climate change, as he feared we were being “slowly burned to death.”
The New York Times sank into an ugly ethnic and religious controversy in its Sunday Styles front-page story on American Jewish reaction to the politically poweful couple of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, a take that many found offensive: “But Are They Good for the Jews?” That question is a traditional one in the Jewish community, if not a cliché, but underlined the offensiveness of the article, which pondered if this Jewish couple should be anathema to the larger Jewish community.
New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has quite the track record of biased stories in addition to her book on covering Hillary Clinton filled with gooey tributes and some a-grade affection. So it was no surprise that Chozick came through Wednesday with a profile of CBS This Morning co-host, Oprah Winfrey gal pal, and Obama donor and family friend Gayle King that was so syrupy it saw no problem with King’s conflicts of interest and fantasied about a Winfrey presidential run.
CNN displayed its hypocrisy Tuesday afternoon on CNN Newsroom as host Brooke Baldwin and liberal journalist Amy Chozick hailed the virtues of porn star Stormy Daniels in light of her profile by Chozick in Vogue. The pair spent over five minutes dubbing Daniels as merely a “fun,” “working mom” who posed for Vogue “like you have never seen her” as she grapples with “the psychological and personal toll” of being President Trump’s “perfect adversary” but a “beacon of The Resistance.”
Vogue magazine is run by Anna Wintour, who’s been a major “bundler” of campaign cash for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. So one of the least surprising stories you could imagine is Vogue trying to glamorize porn star Stormy Daniels, the #Resistance mascot and plasticized container of impeachment fantasies. She could be a “catalyst of historic proportions." The long, gushy profile was written by Amy Chozick, the Hillary-adoring campaign correspondent for The New York Times.
John Podesta's emails were leaked by Wikileaks which means they were really leaked by the Russian government. That's a fact? At least it is a "fact" being pushed by Rolling Stone and much of the rest of the mainstream media despite that fact that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has denied that Russia was the source.
Rolling Stone’s Tessa Stuart interviewed New York Times campaign reporter Amy Chozick about her new book on covering the Hillary Clinton campaign, and revealed Chozick to be amazingly forgiving of Clinton and quite uncaring about female victims of male predation – at least those whose stories could conceivably hurt Hillary’s chances. And she again apologized about her paper actually covering campaign news -- the leaked emails from the Clinton team.
This past month has seen liberal journalists freak out over Fox New’s growing influence and whine about Donald Trump’s shots at leftist members of the press. They also worried they weren’t fair enough to Hillary Clinton during the campaign, even though one reporter admitted to having “spent a year” on writing a “great story” for the Democratic nominee. The following are the worst attacks against Trump and conservatives over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities:
During Monday evening’s edition of MSNBC’s 11th Hour with Brian Williams, the disgraced former NBC anchorman asked New York Times political reporter and author Amy Chozick if “all the signs” of Hillary’s impending defeat in November of 2016 were obvious to reporters.
The Chasing Hillary book by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick was released today and some really interesting tidbits from the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign trail have already been revealed. One such tidbit that appeared in the UK Weekly is that Hillary went on an F-word tirade during a mock debate against a mock Donald Trump:
