In today's outbreak of MSNBC Theology, legal analyst Maya Wiley lit into Sen. Lamar Alexander for allegedly sitting on Satan's fence, and therefore belongs to Satan. Given the channel's tilt, we can guess that the Pelosis and Schiffs are on the Jesus side, and Trump and his Republican enablers are with Satan.
During a rare moment of clarity on Thursday’s The Beat, MSNBC host Ari Melber seemed to realize the contradictory nature of the liberal media’s dueling hyperbolic narratives against President Trump. “Is he Darth Vader or is he like the worst Stormtrooper,” Melber wondered. The question came while his guests were arguing about whether Trump was an all-controlling and murderous dictator or hopelessly incompetent.
While discussing the possibility of former National Security Advisor John Bolton testifying in the Senate impeachment trial, during MSNBC’s special coverage Wednesday morning, anchor Chuck Todd eagerly offered the ex Trump aide the “full hour” of Sunday’s Meet the Press to air accusations against the President.
Apparently not satisfied with Chuck Todd comparing Trump defense team attorney Ken Starr to a “bank robber” on Monday, MSNBC anchor and chief legal correspondent Ari Melber turned it up to eleven on Tuesday as he compared Starr to murderous drug lord El Chapo. His panel of left-wing pundits laughed with glee at the outrageous pronouncement.
From time to time, the liberal media will not only have their masks slip, but completely give away the store in terms of their partisan motivations and strategy. During Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC seemed to have done just that, conceding the trial to be the left’s latest attempt to remove President Trump out of office because they don’t like him.
Amidst Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s panel kept alive the boring, nonsensical, and predictable living love letter to the House Democratic impeachment managers, calling Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) “excellent” and equating his team to a thorough landscaping team mowing a lawn or a captivating episode of Wheel of Fortune (with Schiff as Vanna White).
MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell was once again a panelist during the Senate impeachment trial’s dinner break, joining his colleagues this time on Wednesday and opined that it’s been “another extraordinary day” and that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) defending the President represents “the face of terror” fearing the wrath of Trump.
Even though MSNBC isn’t in severe ratings trouble like CNN, executives at that liberal channel are nevertheless considering making big changes to their weekday and weekend schedules. Among the shifts being considered are hiring former Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith and sending Chuck Todd’s “lackluster” MTP Daily program to the 9 a.m. slot on weekdays.
Both CNN and MSNBC rushed to put disgraced CBS News anchorman Dan Rather on the air Wednesday night, which underlines they think all that matters about journalism is your "heart was in the right place." Rather's liberal heart was on display as he sought to underline that "history" was going to be tough on Trump and his Republican defenders. Rather actually told Don Lemon -- no laugh track provided -- that there are people out there who take the attitude "don't bother me with facts, I have my mind made up."
There is perhaps no greater example of a political bubble than MSNBC. Its journalists are liberals, its analysts are liberals, even most of their purported conservative commentators spend most of their time sounding like liberals. So, it was a bit strange during their special coverage of the House vote to establish rules for the impeachment of the president on Thursday, that the pot accused the kettle of living "in its own bubble."
Over the past couple of weeks, the dominant media have displayed a classic example of their double standard in deciding which police shootings are worthy of coverage and which are less so. The networks that repeatedly hype stories that give the wrong impression that nearly all police shooting victims are black -- even though about 75 percent are either white or Hispanic -- recently gave substantial attention to the trial of a white female police officer who killed an innocent unarmed black man, Botham Jean.
August 28, 2014 might as well be known in liberal America as Tan Suit Day, that day where former President Obama wore a tan suit. On the five year anniversary of Tan Suit Day, liberal journalists and commentators on CNN and MSNBC took to the airwaves to reminisce about that day, which they claimed -- in contradiction of the facts -- that this was somehow "the biggest scandal of the entire Obama presidency."
