Appearing on the 1:00 p.m. ET hour of MSNBC on Monday, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters proclaimed that Arizona Senator Jeff Flake’s outrageous comparison of President Trump to mass-murdering Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was actually an attempt by the retiring Republican lawmaker to “save” the GOP.
On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting MSNBC Live at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections. Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake stepped in to inform them that it actually takes about six years of not voting for a purge to happen -- but even he still fretted that other states might use the Ohio law as precedent to be more restrictive.
Throughout the entire legislative process, the liberal media were deeply invested in spreading as much disinformation about the GOP tax reform bill as possible. And now that the bill that they worked so hard to sink was actually law, NBC Nightly News spent part of Tuesday’s broadcast complaining about how confused people were and how they were in a holiday season panic following tax conversations around the dinner table on Christmas.
On Thursday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin invited Connecticut Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal to complain about Congress not passing new gun laws since the Sandy Hook school shootings five years ago. The Democratic Senator was like a broken record as he complained that Congress had been "complicit" in shootings, and took aim at the NRA.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham made no pretense of being unbiased as he used a Winston Churchill quote to declare Democrat Doug Jones's victory over Roy Moore in Alabama to be "the right thing," and added that "that's probably good news for the country inarguably."
MSNBC suffered a meltdown for the ages on Wednesday afternoon following President Trump’s speech recognizing of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, unleashing guest after guest condemning the “delusional” and “Orwellian” speech that will cause people to die now that America’s credibility has been “shot.”
In yet another example of MSNBC haughtily dismissing the Uranium/Clinton/Russia scandal, on Tuesday, after the House Intelligence Committee announced a new investigation into the Obama administration deal, anchors Andrea Mitchell and Craig Melvin touted Hillary Clinton denouncing the story as “nonsense” and “baloney.”
It's certainly no surprise when guests on NBC News programs and the MSNBC cable television channel take advantage of the opportunity to slam President Donald Trump. That was the case on Thursday, October 12, when Alejandro García Padilla, the former governor of Puerto Rico, told MSNBC host Craig Melvin that the Republican occupant of the White House is “showing off that he is just racist.” In addition, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said on Friday that whoever deletes Trump's Twitter account should receive the Nobel Peace Prize because he uses it to spread hate.
Appearing on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, Vanity Fair special correspondent Gabe Sherman revealed that he was “shocked” that former President Barack Obama would “legitimize” disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein at a recent political event despite claims of sexual harassment against Weinstein being “an open secret in Hollywood and in media circles.”
On Friday, all three network morning shows invited on Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda to promote a new song he produced with other celebrities to raise funds for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. However, the conversation quickly turned political and nasty as the hosts of each broadcast highlighted Miranda’s Twitter attack on President Trump in which he claimed the commander-in-chief was “going straight to hell.”
While NBC’s Today hailed NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a hero last year over his refusal to stand during the National Anthem, on Monday, the morning show was aghast at President Trump’s criticism of such protests. The broadcast hyped a “firestorm of resistance” against Trump across the NFL on Sunday.
Between Friday and Saturday, as Ali Velshi hosted some of MSNBC's live coverage of Hurricane Irma hitting Florida, the MSNBC host repeatedly pushed for there to be more discussion of "climate change" and how the U.S. government might try to effect it in the future. Ironically, on Saturday night, as Craig Melvin hosted MSNBC for a couple of hours, he fretted that there had not been enough discussion of "climate change" even though Velshi repeatedly brought it up.
