The New York Times hired Sarah Jeong to write about technology as a member of the paper’s editorial board. Hours later came revelations from Jeong’s obsessively anti-white and anti-police ravings on Twitter, and a subsequent defense of Jeong’s hiring from the paper. Yet none of that recent controversy penetrated into “Inside the Struggle at Twitter Over What Warrants a Ban,” regarding the deplatforming of conspiracy-mongering Alex Jones. In fact, the story shows the paper doubling down on its double standards: Do as we say, not as we do.
The journalists at MSNBC are awaiting a future killing in order to blame Donald Trump for it. Appearing on MSNBC Live, Monday, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson preemptively accused the President: “And that's the other thing, we're going to have a Charlie Hebdo situation here, without question. Without question. It is going to happen. Because of the behavior of this president.”
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Friday afternoon to promote his latest article – a fictitious look into a future in which President Trump has won reelection – New York Times columnist Bret Stephens warned Democrats not to “lose their marbles” in 2020 and stated the obvious fact that he joined liberal paper in 2017 specifically to oppose the president.
In an item posted Thursday (presumably in advance of its usual Saturday print spot), New York Times columnist Bret Stephens demanded that National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo resign for the good of “the Constitution,” “the country,” and “their conscience” in light of the President’s less-than-stellar performance in Helsinki.
MSNBC, also known as the George Soros News Network, has continued to go off the deep end when discussing the Trump Administration's policy of enforcing existing immigration laws. During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, panelist Mark Thompson compared President Trump to the Roman emperor Nero, accusing him of "burning America up." NPR Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa dropped the usual Holocaust analogies.
The outrage and anger coming from MSNBC continued on Tuesday as analyst and columnist Bret Stephens appeared to say that the Know-Nothing Party of the 1850s is finally in power at the White House. The New York Times columnist suggested comparing the Trump administration to the Nazis was too far. However, he countered with this: “But what we now have is, for the first time an administration in power that represents the same politics that we rejected in the 1850s with the Know Nothing movement.”
President Obama constantly told falsehoods to the American people about how his policies worked, how they would be implemented, and what the benefits were. His most famous one, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” got him the Lie of the Year. But when President Trump does his own spinning, it all of a sudden becomes a moral conundrum for the liberal media. The stacked anti-Trump panel on NBC’s Meet the Press proved this point on Sunday when they debated when to call him a liar.
When people think of the liberal venom coming from MSNBC, many would single out Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell. But the 9am hour has quietly become another home on the network for angry rants. On Wednesday, guests compared Donald Trump to a dictator and somehow linked Trump’s White House speech on Tuesday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher was, in his words, doing his "greatest hits" in making incendiary comments about President Donald Trump and his family. The liberal comedian suggested that President Trump likes to "talk dirty" about his daughter Ivanka, derided Donald Trump Jr. as "Douchebag Von F**kface," claimed Trump supporters "hate" blacks, and belittled white Trump voters as "f**king crackers."
An NBC reporter horrified MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace on Friday by failing to sufficiently condemn President Trump's handling of the North Korea summit. The Deadline: White House host's mouth hung agape and she stared on in disbelief while foreign correspondent Keir Simmons meekly suggested that perhaps the President had not completely doomed both the U.S. and North Korea to destruction by nuclear hellfire.
In a stunning attempt to shift blame for Sunday’s deadly shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee away from the mentally unstable criminal who perpetrated the crime, on Monday, an MSNBC panel claimed that gun he used, an AR-15 rifle, was the “real criminal” and that America’s pro-gun culture was also responsible for the killings.
Despite largely salivating over the leaked copies of James Comey’s book to news outlets, there was plenty of consternation during the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, thanks to host Chris Matthews and other guests taking issue with Comey’s “cheap stuff” going after the President’s hand size, height, and skin color.
