Despite his claims that the liberal media doesn’t exist, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd proved himself again to be a leftist shill during NBC’s Sunday Today as they continued to push a dubious smear of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
On Wednesday, The New York Times published a scathing op-ed trashing President Trump written by an anonymous senior White House official (or so the paper claims). The author pompously painted them self as part of a secret superhero team in the White House keeping the wildly unstable President from harming us all. Of course, the liberal media went absolutely bonkers for it. During the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and, NBC, they spent almost 15 minutes combined pushing the writer’s claims.
Swept up in the excitement of Democrats and left-wing protesters constantly disrupting the first day of Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows read from the same script as reporters declared: “Chaos on Capitol Hill.” The hostility was touted as a “coordinated strategy” engineered by “passionate” liberal lawmakers opposed to Kavanaugh.
On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America ran wild with Democratic claims of racism against Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis , hyping a “fierce backlash” and “firestorm” over the GOP congressman using a common expression during an interview on Wednesday while discussing the left-wing policies of his African-American opponent.
In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
During Thursday morning's MSNBC Live, host Hallie Jackson and her panel engaged in a discussion about a New York Times report describing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s plans to allow schools to use Federal funds to buy guns for their teachers and it included quite a head-scratcher as the headline indicates.
On Thursday morning, as Hallie Jackson was one of the very few MSNBC hosts who has actually made time for the Mollie Tibbetts murder case, she nevertheless allowed the segment to be dominated by dubious claims that illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate than do U.S. citizens.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to hand wringing over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while serving as one of Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s lead investigators in the 1990s, wanting to ask then-President Bill Clinton accurate, detailed questions about the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The supposed “journalists” were aghast at the prospect of Clinton being held accountable.
This morning, the big three networks downplayed President Trump’s influence on some big state primary elections happening tonight and instead hoped for a massive “blue wave” to sweep across the nation. ABC’s coverage was the most biased, with correspondent Jonathan Karl gushing that the competition in one state was a “major sign of trouble for Republicans” and a “sure sign” that Democrats had the upper hand.
On Thursday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson cited a former Trump administration official criticizing cable news coverage that “wants to spend hours and hours dissecting the latest Trump tweet and yet they barely notice when we achieve long-sought conservative policy goals.” While Jackson claimed that such policy achievements did get air time, Washington Post Senior Political Reporter Aaron Blake argued that “the American people aren’t interested in” the president’s substantive accomplishments.
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson crashed and burned Wednesday while attempting to plug an NBC News report during the final moments of her morning show. In a spectacular display of poor judgment, the MSNBC Live host attempted to rhyme and used a made-up work that sounds like an anti-Semitic slur to refer to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen calling him “Kikle.” Mr. Cohen is Jewish.
Liberal ABC and NBC were in a full-blown meltdown Monday night after the White House announced the President was looking to revoke the security clearances of six former intelligence officials, whom they contend abused the privilege of retaining it after their tenure. They even tried to pretend most of the officials named weren't Obama appointees.
