The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi broke news Wednesday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee would be banning the Fox News Channel from hosting a 2020 presidential primary debate in light of the rabidly anti-Fox hit job by The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer. Of course, the DNC has a fan of the move in CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter because Democrats are “dehumanized” and “attacked relentlessly” on FNC’s primetime shows.
Eager to promote an anti-Fox News hit piece in The New Yorker, on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell brought on the liberal magazine’s chief Washington correspondent Jane Mayer to tout some of the article’s most salacious accusations of pro-Trump bias at the rival cable news channel. Lacking any sense of irony, the two Democratic activists masquerading as journalists were aghast at the idea that a media outlet would help a politician with slanted coverage.
CNN and MSNBC were all aglow after Jane Mayer wrote a snide article in The New Yorker magazine titled “The Making of the Fox News White House.” The thesis was that Fox News and President Trump are very tightly aligned, starting with the fact that Fox News executive Bill Shine revolved from Fox into running the White House communications operation. That’s a fair subject for analysis. What quickly turns into hilarity is the notion that it’s unprecedented.
During the first hour of MSNBC's Morning Joe on Monday, the hosts brought on Jane Mayer of The New Yorker to talk about her latest article "The Making of the Fox News White House." Mayer's article of nearly 11,500 words provided the morning show a chance to take some swings at their competitor.
Remember back when a solid sense of skepticism was considered a prerequisite for working in journalism? Looks like that ethos is long gone and discarded. Speaking with former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara about her hit piece on then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, New Yorker writer Jane Mayer came across as revealing a bit more than intended.
Jane Mayer made the network rounds, this week, promoting her New Yorker hit piece on Brett Kavanaugh, but a look at her past demonstrates why her work should be taken with biggest grains of salt as she has become a go-to author for partisan attack stories.
Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi wrote a September 25 article on liberal media bias headlined “Kavanaugh supporters see a conspiracy afoot.” The Post painted this as a little crazy, like a UFO was involved. Can anyone imagine the idea of the Democrats and liberal reporters working hand in glove to torpedo a Republican nomination? Yes, we've seen it over and over again.
With the liberal media in a frenzy thanks to The New Yorker’s contribution Sunday night in the campaign to smear and stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, it was rather amusing to see how not only did a slew of fellow liberal media outlets pursue but not publish Deborah Ramirez’s claim, but The New York Times admit to coming up empty in the facts department.
Monday evening, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a purported "champion of women" and an "outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement," became a pariah in barely three breathtaking hours. At 6:47 p.m., the New Yorker published "Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse." Just after 10 p.m., Schneiderman, a Democrat who was the nationwide point man for state-level anti-Trump "resistance," resigned. The New York Times's handling of the episode appears to betray deep disappointment.
During a panel discussion on her 12:00 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell and her guests feared that the resignation of New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over domestic abuse allegations would hurt ongoing legal challenges to President Trump’s policy agenda and be a “big loss” for the Democratic Party.
In the midst of all the sexual harassment shockers emerging from the media, Hollywood, and politics, the Left is still hailing Anita Hill as the patron saint of sexual harassment. An especially egregious case unfolded on Thursday afternoon, as the NPR show Fresh Air with Terry Gross spent a half-hour re-litigating Clarence Thomas as a harasser with his old journalistic nemesis Jane Mayer (now with The New Yorker) and feminist author Rebecca Traister.The online summary was headlined “For Years, Anita Hill Was A 'Canary In The Coal Mine' For Women Speaking Out.” Only after they’d exhausted two-thirds of the hour on Hill-Thomas, did they turn to the harassment controversies that are not 26 years old.
On her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell sounded the alarm for her left-wing audience as she warned: “Well, President Trump, of course, is making headlines every day, every hour, but Vice President Mike Pence largely flying under the radar....Joining me now is staff writer of The New Yorker, Jane Mayer, who wrote the story, ‘The Danger of President Pence’...”
