Between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, as a number of MSNBC shows pounced on an internal report by the Department of Homeland Security finding that the agency was not prepared for the extra load when it began implementing the "zero tolerance" policy toward illegal border crossings, there were several MSNBC personalities who declared that the Trump administration "forced" some immigrants to cross into the U.S. illegally by making asylum seekers wait in line outside legal ports of entry.
Appearing on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today Friday morning, correspondent Jacob Soboroff made it clear where he stood on Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, declaring Ford to be “an American hero.” Thankfully, host Megyn Kelly was quick to rein in his enthusiastic support for Kavanaugh’s accuser.
Once again on Wednesday, NBC News correspondent Jacob Soboroff confirmed his previous reporting that voters across the country were just not that interested in the stories and controversies constantly hyped by the liberal media: The Russia investigation, the Brett Kavanaugh allegations, or the detention of illegal immigrants.
As the dominant liberal media are notorious for conflating legal and illegal immigrants in their coverage of illegals trying to cheat the system, on Friday's Morning Joe, liberal MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff made a rare admission that many Hispanics and legal immigrants do not side with illegal immigrants who sneak across the border with their children as he recalled a recent trip to Florida and discussions with local immigrants in Congressman Carlos Curbelo's district.
During a report on Wednesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC News correspondent Jacob Soboroff revealed that midterm voters in Florida were much more interested in local issues that impact their daily lives than the latest tweet from President Trump, the Russia investigation, or other political intrigue in Washington D.C.
Sacha Baron Cohen is a liberal comedian who has assumed several fictional identities while attempting to embarrass well-known conservatives. One of his targets -- Sarah Palin, a former GOP governor of Alaska and then the vice-presidential candidate in the 2008 election -- might avoid being shown as fooled during the satirical Netflix program Who Is America?
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff misleadingly claimed that hundreds of illegal immigrants were deported before they were "able" to collect their children without noting that, according to Trump administration officials, many of them declined the opportunity to take their children with them, possibly hoping that the children will succeed in attaining asylum and indefinite residency.
After preaching about climate change on Friday’s Today show, Al Roker filled in for vacationing Megyn Kelly in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour and led a panel discussion celebrating liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announcing that she wouldn’t retire from the bench for at least another five years.
MSNBC journalists don’t often restrain their liberal leanings. But correspondent Jacob Soboroff was even less controlled on Monday night as he accused the Trump administration of “ripping apart the fabric of society.” Talking to Late Night host Seth Meyers, he attacked the forced separation of some illegal immigrants from their parents: “They make policies that rip children away from their families and are truly ripping apart the fabric of society based on nonsense.”
During a Tuesday panel discussion on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today about left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen tricking and humiliating Republicans for his new Showtime series, NBC reporter Jacob Soboroff praised the deceptive entertainer as a “genius” who was “exposing the fault lines of our society” and “providing a service.”
During the 18 months of the Trump presidency, immigration has received more airtime on the three broadcast evening news shows than any other policy topic. The networks’ coverage has been relentlessly hostile to the administration (92% negative, just 8% positive), largely because these newscasts have framed nearly all of their coverage around the plight of those adversely affected by the administration’s enforcement agenda, and have virtually ignored law enforcement or anyone harmed by illegal immigration.
Over the past week, as the dominant media have been fixated on President Donald Trump's push to more aggressively prosecute those who cross the border illegally, there have again been questionable claims that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than the native-born population. But the studies cited either do not make a distinction between legal and illegal immigrants, or do not look at whether those who sneak across the border illegally have a higher crime rate than those who simply overstay visas. The media also continued to ignore other studies which suggest illegal immigrants do, in fact, exhibit a higher crime rate.
