It has been a constant theme in the media for many years that Republicans need to do a better job of recruiting female candidates and on Wednesday's MSNBC Live, Chris Jansing highlighted the efforts of some Republican women to address that concers. While the segment started off dealing with practical concerns such as the lack of political connections and fundraising abilities, it ended with the suggestion that if Republicans really want to do a better job of recruiting women to run for office, thus enhancing their appeal to female voters, they need to drop their "litmus tests" on things like abortion.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, the evening newscasts gleefully reported on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of the word “bribery” to describe President Trump’s actions during his phone call with the President of Ukraine. Throughout the day on Thursday, cable news personalities also parroted Pelosi's talking point suggesting that the President’s actions “make what Nixon did look almost small.” Or, perhaps, Pelosi repeated that talking point after hearing it on cable news.
As the congressional impeachment testimony hearing took a short recess mid-Wednesday, the liberal networks jumped in with their own reflections, but seemingly one takeaway: William Taylor was impressive, definitely not partisan, and wow, he sounds just like us!
Filling in for Stephanie Ruhle during MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Chris Jansing worked to downplay President Trump’s “biggest foreign policy win so far” with the killing of ISIS terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a successful U.S. military raid by claiming that the operation revealed “the flaws in Trump’s foreign policy” and only happened “despite” him.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, ABC World News Tonight was the only network newscast to report on the latest developments in the scandal surrounding Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill’s relationship with one of her staffers; which has led to a probe from the Congressional Ethics Committee. Like CBS and NBC, MSNBC completely ignored the news about Hill. While the other left-wing cable network, CNN, aired a report on the Hill scandal, anchor Brooke Baldwin and reporter Kyung Lah had a very hard time hiding their admiration for the freshman Congresswoman.
Showing once again that the journalists and media analysts on MSNBC can live in a different world, the network on Tuesday hosted a conversation about the “moderate,” “middle-of-the-road” candidates in the 2020 Democratic field. After Chris Jansing fretted about whether the overall Democratic field could defeat Donald Trump, guest Michael Starr Hopkins offered this opinion: “Pete Buttigieg is someone who is a moderate but has little experience when it comes to actually governing.”
On Monday afternoon, MSNBC excitedly delivered supposed breaking news on the impeachment inquiry against President Trump that amounted to nothing more than the latest poll-tested talking points being put out by House Democrats. The breathless reporting repeatedly hyped liberal lawmakers deciding to focus their impeachment crusade on “abuse of power” allegations against Trump.
Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is a 49 year adult man and is a public figure in his own right, but if you were to listen to MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing on Friday you think the younger Biden decided to live a private life away from the spotlight and was not currently in the midst of his own scandal.
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."
Should Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy include his inaction on the 2014 Russian invasion and annexation of Crimea? It's a simple question that would appear to have a simple answer, but judging by the media's reaction over the past couple of days, anyone who says that it should is either a liar, a Putin fan, or both. MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing was the latest media personality to accuse President Trump of attempting to "rewrite history" on Tuesday.
David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon underlined on Friday just how dramatically the liberal media is shifting the goal posts on what statements are "incendiary." To say there are two genders is now apparently outrageous, beyond the pale, at least according to MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing.
The passing of free market and libertarian activist David Koch on Friday was met by much of the media with a dignified reaction that highlighted Koch's politics, but without portraying him as the cause of all that is wrong with the contemporary political climate. MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing took a different route, instead choosing to label the "Billionaire conservative donor" Koch "as one half of the Koch Brothers came to symbolize the influence of dark money in America" and hype NBC's recently concluded docu-series American Swamp where the Koch Brothers are portrayed as the nefarious billionaires out to control American politics.
