Liberal reporters and hosts have been paving the way for Joe Biden, as they have excused his non-stop gaffes as “endearing” and even “Reagan-esque.” At the same time, they were shocked by the “horror show coming out of Trump’s mouth” as MSNBCers like Chris Matthews and Donny Deutsch compared the President to tyrants like Idi Amin and blamed him for the El Paso shooting. The following is a round-up of the most obnoxious outbursts from liberal journalists and celebrities over the past month.
Journalists keep demonstrating that they believe they are above criticism. Any effort to criticize their reporting or do any investigative digging into their lives is somehow equated to dictatorial regimes. This seems odd. If you are not allowed the freedom to criticize the press, who is encouraging an authoritarian regime? On Tuesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd uncorked an angry "I Am Obsessed" commentary about an Axios report that Trump backers are organizing a campaign to criticize national journalists.
Longtime activist Ralph Nader doesn’t make news much these days, but the former presidential candidate still calls out problems that get his attention. His latest opinion piece on Thursday criticized Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, whom he described as “everything wrong with the U.S. media” because the NBC anchor has “allowed his hands to be shackled” with the “golden handcuffs” of corporate bias.
It wasn’t just ABC stepping in to defend former Vice President Joe Biden from the false war story he was peddling at campaign events. During Sunday’s Meet the Press panel on NBC, the mostly liberal panel swooped in on Biden’s behalf to argue that President Trump’s lies were insidious, while the former VP’s were about American heroism. The panel demanded context be considered, while suggesting Biden’s falsehoods made him look like former President Ronald Reagan.
In the wake of the mass shooting in Texas over the weekend, the liberal media did their predictable song and dance calling for staunch gun control measures. This time around, ABC’s Sunday Good Morning America whined about Texas loosening their gun laws to make it easier for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. Meanwhile, on NBC’s Sunday Today, political director Chuck Todd seemed almost thankful that the shooting put gun control “front and center” again.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
In the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, a number of news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS have allowed guests to misleadingly cite gun-friendly Texas's open carry and concealed carry laws to give the impression that El Paso Wal-Mart customers must have been well-armed when they were attacked, thus undermining arguments in favor of allowing customers to bring guns with them.
The first question on everyone’s lips was: Why? Why did that El Paso monster murder 20 and injure another 26? What could explain this evil? It didn’t take long to discover that the shooter had a four-page “manifesto” proclaiming “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” And just like that it was Trump’s fault. The Democrats and their leftist friends in the press are blaming Trump personally. They have declared as fact that his rhetoric about immigrants had directly to violence… and death.
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday following a completely off-the-rails panel discussion in which liberal pundits blamed President Trump for the mass shooting in El Paso, White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney blasted moderator Chuck Todd for allowing such vile politization of the tragedy on the broadcast.
The liberal media hate machine was running at full steam on Sunday in the wake of two mass shootings the left wanted to blame President Trump for. According to frequent NBC and MSNBC guest, radical Princeton professor Eddie Glaude, not only should we condemn the President but we also needed to condemn anyone who used the term “illegal immigrant”.
Over the weekend, President Trump blasted Congressman Elijah Cummings (D) for having done “nothing” for his congressional district, which included a large portion of Baltimore, Maryland. Trump described it as “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” that was “dangerous” and “filthy”. Of course, the liberal media led the Democratic Party choir in calling Trump’s attack “racist” while completely ignoring what the facts were on the ground.
On MTP Daily Wednesday evening, Trump-deranged host Chuck Todd commiserated with fellow liberal MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell over Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress. Mitchell sadly conceded that this whole Russia investigation was probably finally over, but she couldn’t help but take swings at “shameful” Republicans while expressing her disappointment.
