On Monday morning, CNN and MSNBC missed an easy lay-up that would have reinforced their love for America and our military. Instead, they refused to carry live the public portion of a White House event honoring Conan, the Belgian Malinois dog who became famous for their heroism during the October 26 raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In CNN’s case, the Jeffrey Zucker-led network’s hatred for Trump led them to not even acknowledge that the event took place during Inside Politics and since then (as of this blog’s publication).
On Tuesday, talk-radio star Rush Limbaugh dove into the media freakout over President Trump's fast-food banquet for the national college football champions, the Clemson Tigers. He singled out CNN's Erin Burnett for crying sexism. "The president said something so offensive that upon hearing it a cable news infobabe nearly lost her cookies. Do you remember the sound bite? It was only a few seconds. Do you know what he might have said that just sent somebody into orbit?...Right! That the first lady would be making salads!"
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.”
During Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter and most of his panel seemed quite confident that the walls are closing in on President Trump. Stelter opened the show by asking “does the public understand just how much trouble the President is in? If not, that’s a failing of the press.” After playing some clips of TV personalities declaring that the President is in serious trouble, Stelter brought in his panel, The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Will Bunch, CNN Political Commentator Joan Walsh, and Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast. The segment featured a well-worn Trump-Watergate comparison, in addition to some insightful analysis on the media’s obsession with the Russia probe and their refusal to cover anything that might actually paint the Trump administration in a positive light.
Monday night’s OutFront saw fill-in host Jake Tapper anchor another off-the-rails segment hours after a disastrous installment of The Lead that saw GQ’s Julia Ioffe falsely claim that the President has radicalized more people than ISIS (which was followed over 40 minutes later by a measly apology). This time, it featured guests chastising public pleas for prayer, questioning Jewish Trump supporters, and, yes, blaming the President for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
Things grew tense Monday night on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront (with fill-in host Jake Tapper) as one of the rare CNN conservatives in political commentator Scott Jennings threw down with The Nation’s Joan Walsh over Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s attention-grabbing attempt to reinforce her minuscule Native American heritage.
Mere moments after President Trump concluded the ceremonial swearing-in of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday night, a mostly liberal panel on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront tore into him for daring to apologize to the Justice on behalf of the nation. One particular loony commentator even dismissed Kavanaugh’s career-long effort to promote female law clerks as cynincal pandering, given recent events.
Comedienne Michelle Wolf is a hero, according to media and Hollywood figures who are racing to defend her recent outrageous statements, regardless of how the rest of America reacts.
Sparks flew during Monday’s CNN Tonight as conservative radio host Ben Ferguson went up against liberal anti-gun activists, host Don Lemon and commentator Joan Walsh. The topic was teachers carrying guns in school, with Ferguson explaining to them how he had talked with teachers wanted to volunteer to do it, but Walsh and Lemon lashed out by first calling into question their credibility as teachers to then attacking their intelligence and claiming they were all being “nonsensical.”
Late Thursday’s CNN Tonight provided an excellent example of why it’s impossible to say that CNN is unbiased, respects conservatives, cares about the whole Constitution, or knows what it's talking about on guns as host Don Lemon and The Nation’s Joan Walsh childishly attacked National Review’s Rich Lowry on gun control.
While the media covered up the breaking news put out by The Hill that the FBI discovered Russia’s alleged monetary involvement with the Clinton Foundation in an uranium deal with the Obama administration, libs and journalists on Twitter are trying to find a way to spin the story in their direction.
On Friday's The Last Word, a panel of MSNBC regulars fretted over President Donald Trump's speech to the Values Voters Summit, and made their latest accusations of racist "code," with contributor Jonathan Capehart ridiculously suggesting that the words "take their country back" used by Tea Partiers in 2010 was motivated by racism. Substitute host Ali Velshi also fretted over a flyer from the event warning about the dangers of homosexuality, and, while previewing the segment, even briefly mentioned the MRC's "I Don't Believe the Liberal Media" bumper stickers that were also displayed on Saturday's AM Joy.
