In 2018 there was a torrent of ugliness directed at conservatives. Vice President Mike Pence was disgustingly derided as a “dangerous” Christian with a “mental illness” on ABC’s The View. When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hounded by leftist activists at a Virginia restaurant, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin praised them as she condemned: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press.”
Cable news and the networks have been hard at work trying to demonize Mississippi’s GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith as a callous racist who wants to bring back the KKK’s reign of terror in the South from decades past. After liberal activists added to the drama by putting nooses on the state legislature lawn, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and her liberal guests tried to blame Hyde-Smith for the stunt, bashing her as “sick” “scary” and “disgraceful” while even urging Mississippi voters in the runoff election, to vote for her Democrat opponent, Mike Espy who is embattled in his own controversy.
A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.
With the midterm elections fast approaching liberal journalists have begun paving the way for a blue wave of Democratic wins. This past month saw the media hype machine pump-up Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as the “antidote” to the “Trump era.” His opponent, incumbent Ted Cruz, was derided as the “type of man who would sell his family into slavery” to get elected. Lefty writers, hosts and pundits also tried to rally Democratic voters by actually blaming Donald Trump for Hurricane Florence.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle demonstrated that Senate Republicans will be attacked by liberal journalists no matter how they handle the questioning of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the MSNBC anchor charged that it is "an insult to Dr. Ford" for Republicans Senators to "pedal in a girl" to question her.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace gushed over allegedly right-leaning New York Times columnist Bret Stephens excoriating Senator Ted Cruz in his latest column, in which he cracked that the Texas Republican would "sell his family into slavery" to win an election.
Often times when watching MSNBC’s Hardball, it’s one moment that stands out in the sea of liberal bias and tomfoolery from longtime host Chris Matthews. But in other instances, it’s a potpourri of lunacy with Matthews and guests trying to one-up each other as walking Notable Quotables. Thursday’s show was a combination of the two with Matthews doing some heavy lifting with some help from New York Times columnist and Never Trumper Brett Stephens.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Thursday afternoon, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens was predictably thrilled with his newspaper’s decision to publish an anonymous op/ed from a supposed “senior administration official” blasting President Trump. However, Stephens took it a step further as he used the article to compare Trump to a drug addicted parent.
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.
