Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC’s anchors and correspondents lectured President Trump on the perils of touting a surging stock market, in the wake of Monday’s losses. However, all of the journalists at the liberal cable channel seemed to forget how often Barack Obama similarly took credit for stocks being on the rise during his administration.
On Monday, hosts of MSNBC’s morning lineup scoffed at the notion that some Americans still have faith in Congressman Nunes’s FISA memo, and even in the President himself. Some attributed the phenomenon to ignorance or foolishness, while others suggested that Trump supporters had been deceived by Russian bots on Twitter.
Minutes after the White House and congressional Republicans released the much-anticipated FISA memo detailing allegations of political bias in the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd took to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports to denounce the move and media competitors who got the scoop first.
On Tuesday night, NBC threw what could be described as a hissy fit following President Trump’s first State of the Union address by attacking it as a “subdued,” “tired” President and speech that will keep “the fact checkers...busy” but didn’t address Russia or gun control.
In an exclusive interview aired on Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports with Vice President Mike Pence during his overseas trip to Israel, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was aghast at him accurately holding Democrats accountable for shutting down the government. She proceeded to lecture Pence on his decision to publicly criticize liberal lawmakers while on foreign soil.
Before Vice President Mike Pence addressed Israel's government on Monday, "13 Israeli-Arab members of Israel's Parliament held up signs saying 'Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine' and were forcibly removed by security as Pence started to speak," according to NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
In a friendly softball interview with Democratic Delaware Senator Chris Coons during her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell demanded that Democrats only vote to keep the government open if they extract an immigration deal “written in blood” from Republicans.
Immediately following President Trump’s historic live address from the Rose Garden to the March for Life this afternoon, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell tried to ignore the significant acknowledgement from a sitting president for the largest annual pro-life gathering every year, since Roe vs. Wade.
Is Trump mentally unstable? A man child? Michael Wolff and his friends in the press have a new breathless claim: Donald Trump is probably dyslexic. Talking to Wolff on Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell enthused, “What is the evidence, if any, that he could be dyslexic, and because of his personality, is not willing to admit that?”
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
At the top of her show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was giddy as she declared that Michael Wolff’s salacious and unverified tell-all book about the Trump administration must have the White House “completely rattled.” Even as she admitted that all the details may not be true: “It’s hard to know what is actually fact and what isn’t, a lot is in quotations.”
The network coverage of the Iranian protests has been utterly abysmal. From ignoring them all together to downplaying the murder of protesters, the major news outlets have had to be dragged kicking and screaming to cover the spontaneous uprising. Tuesday was no different with ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News downplaying the size and expansiveness of the demonstrations. CBS Evening News went off the deep end and started openly questioning who was actually killing the protesters.
