MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday insisted multiple times that President Trump was unable to deny that he was a Russian agent – even minutes after playing a clip of the President doing just that.
Last week, federal Judge Royce Lamberth ordered the State Department and the Justice Department to hand over information related to the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. The decision was a victory for Judicial Watch, who has requested the information via a Freedom of Information Act request.
New York Times media reporter Jim Rutenberg tried to tar mainstream conservative figures as hateful inciters of violence in “There’s Money In Conspiracy, And Outlets Are After It." The online headline: “You Don’t Need to Go to the Dark Web to Find Hateful Conspiracy Theories.” The online version featured a prominent picture of Judge Jeanine Pirro underneath the "hateful" headline. Rutenberg also tried to make a link between Fox news and the Pittsburgh massacre.
As NewsBusters reported yesterday, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro got into a little bit of a dust-up with Whoopi Goldberg on Thursday’s edition of The View. Goldberg abruptly ended the segment not longer after Pirro accused her of suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. During an appearance on Hannity Thursday night, Pirro explained that the situation did not get much better after she tried to leave the studio.
The fallout happened after Pirro answered host Sara Haines question as to why she called her book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals, The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”. Saying she wasn’t “an ideologue,” she slammed the Mueller investigation as a “fake investigation based on a fake document” (the unsubstantiated Trump-Russia dossier.) That upset host Sunny Hostin who shot back, “It was not only based on that and you know that.” CNN commentator Ana Navarro, filling in for Joy Behar, used Pirro’s initial comment to try to pin her into a corner on President Trump:
Thursday morning, Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy issued a report which confirmed what NewsBusters reported in April, namely that President Donald Trump "has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive than negative, setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president." On Sunday, CNN's John Berman tried to cast Fox News as a conservatively biased outlier — as opposed to the relatively fair and balanced entity it has actually been during the Trump administration's early months — by selecting the results of one tiny element of the Shorenstein report and presenting it as if it was the study's comprehensive conclusion.
CNN's Brian Stelter angrily contends that the rape of a 14 year-old girl at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland on March 16 at the hands of two late-teen illegal immigrant freshman classmates should never have been a national story — and the fact that it is to an extent, despite obvious attempts to blackball it by the Big Three broadcast networks, is all Fox News's fault. The real question, which the public education establishment and their accomplices in the press don't want anyone to ask, is this: What has happened in the nation's schools during the past 35 years as a result of the Supreme Court's 1982 Plyler vs. Doe decision, which opened the floodgates allowing children in this country illegally unlimited access to U.S. public education?
On Monday’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah compared Fox News to North Korea’s state-controlled media. Noah began the segment playing a clip from FNC’s Justice With Judge Jeanine March 25 show, where host Jeanine Pirro is shown criticizing Paul Ryan for giving Trump a failed health care bill. Noah then mocks Pirro blaming Ryan for the healthcare bill not passing, instead of Trump for not being able to sell it. But he really goes over the top at one part, comparing Pirro’s fervent delivery to socialist propaganda:
On Judge Jeanine Pirro's Saturday Fox News program, Judge Andrew Napolitano succinctly summarized the implications of the latest revelations concerning Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was the Obama administration's Secretary of State.
One can't help but notice that almost no one else is making Napolitano's obviously valid points. If a Republican or conservative had done similar things on Mrs. Clinton's scale, establishment press reporters and pundits would be making them on a daily basis:
During Tuesday’s edition of Fox News Channel's The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly and liberal radio host Richard Fowler spared over a list from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that included drawings of women who have denounced radical Islam that include conservative authors Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. At numerous instances, Kelly and Fowler found themselves repeatedly talking over each other, with Kelly denouncing the SPLC as a “careless organization that cares not at all about the safety of the people it condemns” and uses “far left websites that hate these women” to bolster their claims.
Fox News's Jeanine Pirro started her show Friday evening with an absolutely epic smackdown of President Obama (video follows with full transcript):
Saturday evening, a friend suggested that I watch the midnight rerun of Judge Jeanine Pirro's Fox News program for her interview segment with a Democrat and a Republican about this weekend's closing of 22 embassies overseas in response to terrorist threats.
Ryan Clayton was the Democrat whose arguments blaming George W. Bush's administration for the current level of threats in the Middle East were so weak that he was reduced to childishly reminding viewers that 9/11 happened on George W. Bush's watch (as if we didn't know, and as if eight years of previous Clinton administration weakness were irrelevant). Clayton has an interesting history, which I will note at the end of this post. The Judge Jeanine segment follows the jump.
