Donald Trump’s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has been met with skepticism from liberal journalists with the likes of CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga railing: “The self-proclaimed dealmaker in chief has so far proven to be more of a deal breaker, tearing up international deals.” But this is a far cry from the liberal media’s reaction to Barack Obama’s December 2014 deal with Cuban dictator Raul Castro. The following are the most exuberant reactions from the liberal media to Obama’s initial announcement of a thaw with Cuba back in December 2014, as culled from the MRC’s archives
MSNBC’s live coverage of the Singapore summit between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un amounted to little more than an airing of grievances about the President. Right out of the gate, commentators commenced hurling scornful remarks about Trump’s supposed incompetence and apathy, until All In host Chris Hayes eventually asserted Donald Trump was not “burdened by caring” about the outcome of the summit.
Reports of the seizure of New York Times reporter Ali Watkins’ personal belongings and the arrest of a senate staffer who allegedly leaked information to her have been met with consternation from the media. On Thursday night's The 11th Hour, however, host Brian Williams and guest Peter Baker of The New York Times discussed the precedent for such action: the Obama administration.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour show on MSNBC, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's dispute with the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles, Brian Williams dropped a Hitler comparison as he likened the NFL caving to Trump on the National Anthem protests to Joseph P. Kennedy trying to appease Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. And race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson declared that Trump is angry at the Eagles because he is against blacks and whites working together.
One of the Democrats’ greatest assets this November may be turning into a liability. Yesterday, during a segment on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, host Williams and Associated Press White House News Editor Nancy Benac discussed the ramifications of Bill Clinton’s recent NBC interview on the Democrats’ chances at the polls.
Journalists are freaking out over an alleged admission by Donald Trump that he attacks the press simply to “discredit” reporters and so that “no one will believe you.” CBS This Morning, CNN, ABC’s The View and MSNBC have all fretted over the quote.
During Monday evening’s edition of MSNBC’s 11th Hour with Brian Williams, the disgraced former NBC anchorman asked New York Times political reporter and author Amy Chozick if “all the signs” of Hillary’s impending defeat in November of 2016 were obvious to reporters.
On Monday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, host Brian Williams ended the show with a commentary in which he gushed over the anti-gun students who spoke at the March for Our Lives rally, and then lamented that conservative CNN political commentator Rick Santorum might have ruined the day for its supporters by recommending that students take CPR classes, try to combat bullying in their schools, and be more proactive in their own schools instead of demonstrating for more gun control.
In the midst of Saturday’s so-called March for Our Lives gun control rally, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared with disgraced anchor Brian Williams to lecture gun-owning Americans about why they should expect to have “basic” restrictions applied to their right to keep and bear arms.
Between long cuts to the so-called March for Our Lives rally to broadcast musical performances by leftist celebrities and obnoxious kids pushing gun control while accusing Republicans of being complicit with school shootings, MSNBC would chime in with their own cavalcade of left-wing political advocates cheering them on. During one such cut away, disgraced anchor Brian Williams and Al Sharpton boasted about how the kids were taking charge of their gun control efforts.
Showing viewers on Tuesday’s 11th Hour his liberal bias and how it’s absurd that he remains on television, host and disgraced former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams blasted Republicans for not only lacking “courage” to discuss impeaching President Trump, but possessing “the opposite of whatever a profile in courage is.”
Sometimes reporters just come out and say it. And on March 7, 1994, Time journalist Margaret Carlson admitted that favorable coverage for Hillary Clinton is simply “rooting for your team.” Other examples from This Week in Media Bias History include: Newsweek lamenting the “victims of capitalism,” Brian Williams insisting his work has been “cleansed” of opinion.
