During her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell revealed her greatest fear amid the coronavirus pandemic – Donald Trump’s approval ratings going up. She fretted over likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden “having difficulty” getting his message out during the crisis and support for the President “skyrocketing.”
Earlier this week, Democrats sabotaged Senate efforts to pass COVID-19 relief measures by demanding that their unrelated legislative pet projects be included in any bill. On Monday, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell has discovered the true villain of this story: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for daring to point it out.
During a live interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell lobbed one softball after another, refusing to press the Democratic leader on playing politics with coronavirus relief legislation. Instead, Mitchell repeatedly encouraged Pelosi to dictate terms of the aid package and attack President Trump.
After NBC actually called out Democrats for holding up the coronavirus relief bill Monday morning, its sister network instead, went to absurd lengths to defend Democrats refusing to give aid to hurting American families. On MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, the host downplayed Senate Democrats playing politics, while even defending their actions as doing what voters would want.
After Friday's White House coronavirus press conference, Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC national security analyst Jeremy Bash decried alleged instances of race-baiting and xenophobia from President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo and claimed it was they who were provoking international tensions during a time when the world should be coming together.
Hulu's new docuseries Hillary was released on March 6; a four-episode, four-hour slog that went back and forth between the 2016 campaign and Hillary Clinton's life from childhood. Although rewatching her 2016 concession speech and crying supporters was a highlight, this being a show about the Clintons, the series was filled with lowlights.
If one were to judge by the reaction of the media to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's decision to withdraw for the 2020 Democratic primary, you could be forgiven for assuming she was actually popular. MSNBC campaign reporter Ali Vitali joined Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports to continue the media mourning session where she lamented the downfall of the last serious female Democratic candidate and her plans.
On her Thursday show, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell lamented the news that Elizabeth Warren has decided to drop out of the presidential election leaving two septuagenarian white males as the only remaining credible choices in the Democratic Primary.
By the end of her NBC Nightly News report on Thursday, it was clear that chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell was let down by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) dropping out of the Democratic race for president. It was loaded with gushy declarations about how iconic the Senator was with no mention of her lies about Native American heritage.
As Democrats in South Carolina on Saturday go to the polls to pick a choice for 2020, MSNBC journalists and hosts are still dealing with outrage over the network’s very negative coverage of Bernie Sanders. Chris Matthews compared a win by the socialist to a Nazi victory in World War II. (He apologized.) The network suspended contributor Jason Johnson after he accused Sanders supporters of alienating minorities.
Toward the end of her Tuesday show on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell decided to echo Bernie Sanders and praise the state of communist Cuba, that "there's a lot of great things to say" about communist rule. After that, she questioned Michael Bloomberg's "really snarky tweets jumping on Sanders" for his fondness for Fidel Castro. She was more offended by that than Bernie's actual embrace of the dictator.
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
