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.
Twice this week, PBS's Tavis Smiley show has hosted guests from the far-left The Nation magazine, giving them an unchallenged forum to promote their views of the Trump administration and Republicans. On Tuesday, John Nichols -- promoting his book Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse -- fearmongered about "militant anti-immigration" Attorney General Jeff Sessions having a "nefarious" record on civil rights. He went on to warn of the "awful things" that could be done by the Trump White House that "could reverse decades -- our entire lifetimes, it could reverse the progress that we've made."
Just because liberals devote a massive amount of attention to the current POTUS doesn’t mean that they neglect his VPOTUS. In a Tuesday Nation piece, Walsh disclosed, “You probably have these debates with your friends, too: Do we want Donald Trump to resign, or be impeached, which would leave us with Vice President Mike Pence in charge?...Would the low-charisma Pence, who looks like a B-movie producer’s idea of a president, be easier to defeat [in 2020], especially given the GOP fratricide that would commence with Trump’s departure, however it came about?”
On Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber -- a relatively new MSNBC show that recently replaced Greta Van Susteren's For the Record program -- host Melber not surprisingly assembled a panel of lefties to discuss the week's news for the show's regular "Fall Back" segment. Former Ebony editor-in-chief Amy DuBois Barnett took aim at Caitlyn Jenner because the transgender Republican was recently seen wearing a pro-Donald Trump hat even after Trump's announced ban on transgenders in the military. Inserting race into the conversation, DuBois griped Jenner is "flaunting her residual white male privilege."
On Sunday's MSNBC special, Trump at 6 Months, a panel stacked with liberals was assembled to discuss the conflict between President Donald Trump and the media. Given the makeup of the panel, it was no surprise that the group concluded that distrust of the media was the fault of right-wingers attacking them for decades, and that the media should continue what they already are doing, rather than make reforms to regain credibility.
