Unlike CNN, MSNBC’s Hardball didn’t surrender its entire hour Wednesday to the House Judiciary Committee debate on the Articles of Impeachment, but considering all the nonsense uttered by host Chris Matthews and an assortment of guests, perhaps it would have been better to follow CNN’s lead.
As the panel on Tuesday’s MTP Daily reacted to the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report, host Chuck Todd repeatedly griped that the Democrats have not pushed hard enough as they seek to move public opinion regarding the impeachment inquiry. Throughout the entire segment, Todd acted as if he still served in his old role as a staffer on Democrat Tom Harkin’s 1992 presidential campaign and not in his new role as an objective journalist.
The successful U.S. military campaign to bring swift justice to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is clearly a big, big victory for America. Rather than surrender, the world’s most wanted terrorist tugged on a suicide vest and blew himself to pieces. He made sure the blast killed his three children, too. The media coverage could be easily predicted. Straight news has disappeared. Absolutely everything needs to be put through a political filter.
Wednesday evening was not a good time for MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman, who posted a tweet containing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attending a party hosted by longtime New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. However, the newsman soon had to remove his tweet since it embarrassingly showed both liberal leaders being forced to stand outside the building because the event drew a very large crowd, a development described as “genuinely hilarious” by the managing editor of a news website.
An anti-Semitic cartoon in the International edition of the New York Times depicted Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a guide dog with a big nose and Star of David around his neck, leading a corpulent, equally large-nosed President Trump wearing a yarmulke. the cartoon does not mark the paper’s first foray into anti-Israel tropes. After its first response flopped, the Times issued a somewhat stronger statement, saying it was “deeply sorry” for publishing the cartoon. But the stakes were raised on Monday when the Times own columnist Bret Stephens criticized the paper: “A Despicable Cartoon in The Times.”
Seeing as how he had been the bane of the liberal media’s existence for the last 24 hours plus as he’s supposedly the real president, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was in an ebullient mood for his Friday show. He said that he was supposedly “the new villain in Washington D.C.” ahead of a possible government shutdown that was portrayed as if the world was “end[ing] even before climate change kills us all.”
With Tuesday’s State of the Union well-received by the public (and not the liberal media), it was time to move on and back to spreading fake news, attacking Christians, and hurling around tired insults. Luckily for the Resistance, Wednesday’s Hardball accomplished just that thanks to four cringe-worthy moments featuring host Chris Matthews and a team of liberal guests and journalists.
As the missing FBI text message controversy continued to grow and the Inspector General’s investigation marched on, the liberal media had adopted the strategy to completely smear any criticism directed at the bureau. And during MSNBC’s MTP Daily on Wednesday, former RNC Chairman Michael Steele obnoxiously chimed in and declared that Republicans were “going to rue the day” they decided to question the FBI.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber, Huffington Post global editorial director Howard Fineman -- also an MSNBC contributor -- went negative on Republicans planning to cut taxes as he described them as "getting drunk on egg nog," and claimed that cutting taxes "periodically gets them into trouble." He went on to suggest that the internet deregulation plan would amount to "an all-out war on" the middle class voters who elected Donald Trump.
On Saturday, MSNBC analyst and global editorial director of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group Howard Fineman suggested that people of Eric Boling's political orientation will invariably commit sexual harassment.
Conor Beck of the Washington Free Beacon highlighted the pro-Comey bravado of MSNBC political analyst Howard Fineman on Friday night’s edition of Hardball. Fineman was beside himself that anyone would complain that the former FBI director was cowardly, or un-manly. He told the accusers they should “grow a pair themselves.”
Somehow, Chris Matthews and Fineman were trying to convince themselves that it's not "leaking" to take your private memos and share them with The New York Times through a law-professor intermediary.
On Sunday night, the thrill inside of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was alive and well for Barack Obama as he anchored a two-hour special swooning over the “American eloquence” of the President as he received the Profile in Courage Award from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.
