Wednesday’s Morning Joe devoted a significant portion of its broadcast to covering President Trump’s upcoming speech that will officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In response to reports that the Palestinian Authority is reacting to this development by calling for potentially violent protests and a “day of anger,” MSNBC’s top liberal pundits knew precisely where the blame for any resultant violence should fall – Trump, of course.
On Sunday and early Monday after word broke of the church shootings in Sutherland Springs, Texas, NBC correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin took to Twitter and sounded like a liberal activist as he tweeted out several comments suggesting that U.S. government agencies discriminate against Muslims in applying the word "terrorism" to so many acts of mass violence by Muslims, but not so much with white non-Muslim men.
Just another day at the office for NBC News, folks. On Thursday, Tablet magazine writer Yair Rosenberg caught NBC News correspondents Ayman Mohyeldin and Cal Perry publishing a error-laden piece on NBCNews.com about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that was later rewritten without a correction.
During live MSNBC coverage of a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in the 3 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, NBC correspondents Ayman Mohyeldin and Martin Fletcher took turns blaming Israel’s “right-wing” government for Palestinian “frustration.” Mohyeldin ranted over “...the shift of Israeli politics, including now the current government, more to the right, to what has been described by Israelis as even more of an extreme right-wing government."
The arrest-and-release of 10 U.S. Navy sailors by the Islamic Republic of Iran was a diplomatic success story for the Obama administration, according to MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin and Kate Snow.
We began detailing the Media Research Center’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2015” yesterday with the awards for the gooiest Obamagasms of the year. Today, we have the perennial “Damn Those Conservatives Award,” our annual look at the nasty rhetoric that liberal journalists fling at conservatives. (Thanks to our 39 judges who patiently reviewed dozens of quotes to select the very worst of the worst.)
Call Ayman Mohyeldin "the Duke Ellington Reporter" in homage to the jazz great's "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." Or perhaps you could say that Mohyeldin had his Pauline Kael moment, after the New York Times movie critic who, as legend has it, averred she couldn't understand how Nixon won since she didn't know anyone who voted for him.
Isn't a reporter supposed to, you know, get around and speak with people with a range of views? Not Ayman. On this evening's Hardball, Mohyeldin said that "every single person I've spoke to" said [Trump's Muslim immigration plan] would be "disastrous." But just a bit earlier in the show, Michael Steele cited a poll showing that 56% of Americans believe that Islam is incompatible with American values. Mohyeldin apparently didn't have a chance to chat with any of the majority of Americans. Not surprising, coming from the man who called American Sniper Chris Kyle a "racist" who went on "killing sprees."
Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe with coverage of the unfolding terror attack in Mali, and promptly turned to Ayman Mohyeldin for a report.
The very first words out of Mohyeldin's mouth were "it's important to emphasize we still don't know the identity of these gunmen who have taken the hotel hostage." Great point, Ayman. I mean, sure, they were yelling Allah Akhbar, and released hostages who could recite passages from the Koran. But can anyone prove they're not a bunch of Yale frat boys on early Spring Break wearing hideously inappropriate Halloween costumes? Or perhaps some insufficiently sensitive Mizzou administrators invading the safe space of the hotel guests?
On Wednesday’s MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts, Ayman Mohyeldin presented a video of his interviews with two college kids from Jerusalem, one an Israeli, the other a Palestinian. After playing the video, Thomas Roberts and Mohyeldin continued to discuss the video. Mohyeldin lectured, “To try to understand this current cycle of violence, one of the reasons Palestinians will always say is the humiliation and frustration that the young people are experiencing.”
MSNBC journalist Ayman Mohyeldin’s biased coverage of Navy sniper Chris Kyle earned him the “Damn Those Conservatives to Hell” award at Thursday’s 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards. Appearing on the January 29, 2015 edition of Morning Joe, Mohyeldin condemned Kyle’s “racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims as he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment.” The comment was so egregious that he went on to win the MRC’s quote of the year.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A raucous crowd of 900 attendees at Thursday night's 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards dinner gave the dubious honor of Quote of the Year to NBC's Ayman Mohyeldin for this gem in which he trashed late U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle as having gone on "killing sprees" during his tours of duty.
Asked by MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin whether Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton should apologize for comparing her GOP presidential rivals to terrorists, Washington Post national political corresondent Karen Tumulty demurred, remarking that "the lesson of Donald Trump in this election season is: no apologies, just keep moving."
