After a peaceful Monday rally by Second Amendment activists in Richmond, Virginia, CNN and MSNBC deserved thoughts and prayers seeing as how their fear-mongering about “violence” a la Charlottesville by “thousands” of “heavily armed” “guns rights activists, white nationalists, militia groups swarming” the Capitol fizzed into puddles of lies.
After the Democrats' press conference on Wednesday where they revealed their managers for the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined CNN Newsroom co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto to talk about the big takeaway from this super serious moment in American history: that Republicans are a bunch of white men and Democrats aren't.
One thing historians will say about President Obama was that he had an affinity for drone warfare for the purposes of taking out terrorists. In that respect President Trump was doing the same thing when he ordered that Qasem Soleimani be taken out, but that's not how MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell saw things on her Tuesday show.
Apparently, cynicism is warranted for congressional leaders. Well, some of the time anyway. Nancy Pelosi fan Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday scoffed and laughed at Kevin McCarthy as the House Minority Leader suggested that Pelosi’s delaying of impeachment articles is nothing more than a transparent attempt at helping Joe Biden.
Qasem Soleimani was responsible for thousands of deaths, including hundreds of American soldiers, but instead of commemorating the death of a war criminal, liberal reporters and hosts filled their broadcasts with somber tones as they mourned the loss of the “bold” “revered” “military genius” and Iranian “cult figure.”
Susan Rice is best known as the top Obama adviser who lied on five different network talk shows in 2012, claiming the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was caused by a YouTube video. But MSNBC put Rice on the air shortly after President Trump's speech about Iran on Wednesday as a "fact checker."
Friday’s NBC Nightly News capped an ugly 24 hours for the liberal media after U.S. airstrikes killed Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani by doubling down on its bias, flashing outrageous chyrons, and fluffing pillows for the Iranians over the course of nearly 12 minutes of coverage. With help from anchor Lester Holt’s August visit to Tehran, this kowtow came at the expense of the President and supporters of the strike as that side only fetched about two minutes of either direct soundbites or attributions.
Reacting to the U.S. killing of Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander and terrorist Qasem Soleimani, on Friday, NBC’s Today show warned of “the entire region on edge” and feared that the death of the “iconic military leader” created a “more dangerous world.”
As news broke that President Trump had ordered a targeted strike against Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Forces of Iran, while he was in Iraq, the liberal media where aghast Trump would take action against a killer of American troops and innocence. During the primetime pearl-clutching on MSNBC’s The Last Word, a panel of journalists and former Obama administration officials were busy suggesting there was no plan and “if” Soleimani deserved what he got, Trump was the “wrong” president to dish it out.
Not long after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) began tallying the House vote for the first Article of Impeachment against President Trump Wednesday night, NBC political director Chuck Todd began to complain about how the latest NBC News poll on impeachment showed an unpersuaded public. To that, he huffed about the “factual debate” and how he found it “bizarre” that the President was getting cheered at a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Listening to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reverential description of impeachment on Wednesday, evidently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “prayerful” demeanor is rubbing off on her fellow Democrats. Swept up in the excitement of the House preparing to vote to impeach President Trump, the Hardball host labeled the partisan process “sacramental.”
Throughout the entire impeachment drama our self-appointed moral betters in the media have dutifully repeated the Democrats' talking points that this about much more than a mere policy difference. But as the theory that President's Trump's actions could best and solely be explained as a desire for him to get the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden succumbed to a lack of provable facts that idea became less and less believable. On Friday's special coverage of the Judiciary Committee vote on the articles of impeachment, Nicolle Wallace and Andrea Mitchell let the cat out of the bag that this really is about a policy difference.
