Late Sunday afternoon on MSNBC, Yale School of Medicine forensic psychologist Bandy Lee seemed to hint at the need for the overthrow of Presidents Trump, proclaiming that he’s so mentally unstable that “[w]e must act soon” or risk him turning violent with catastrophic consequences for all of us.
According to a snide John Harwood, Republicans lack the “maturity” to govern, handle taxes and raise the debt ceiling. The CNBC editor appeared on MSNBC, Friday, to complain about Trump and the GOP: “This is the kind of thing that ought to be easy but what we've seen in the last few years is that the Republican Party has not shown the maturity to govern effectively in a consistent way.”
First, it was almost seven solid months of 24/7 Russia Russia Russia blasting from the mainstream media. Recently that vanished to be replaced by a new MSM theme, Racist Racist Racist. And after President Donald Trump's rally on Tuesday in Phoenix, it has morphed into Crazy Crazy Crazy. Only the most fringe elements out there are continuing to place their faith in Trump leaving office because of supposed collusion with the Russians. That is so first half of 2017.
When it comes to "news" which might discredit Donald Trump or a member of his family, the modus operandi for too many in the press is, "Tweet and report first, ask questions later (if at all)." On Sunday, several media members couldn't resist falsely tweeting that Ivanka Trump will somehow control $100 million pledged by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to a World Bank fund for women entrepreneurs, thus dishonestly opening the door to utterly false parallels to the Clinton family-controlled Clinton Foundation.
To start off his first week in office, Donald Trump spent the morning signing executive orders, one of which was reversing a pro-abortion policy from the Obama Administration. The “Mexico City” policy, more commonly called the “Global Gag” policy by the left, bans federal funds from being given to organizations who pay for or promote abortions overseas. It was originally enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1984 and was rescinded in 2009 by President Obama. Now eight years later, President Trump has reinstated the policy, and some liberal journalists’ displeasure with the news came across in their reporting and their tweets.
MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor ripped the liberal media for its anti-Trump, pro-Clinton bias. “There is no neutrality at The New York Times,” Gainor told After the Bell host Dan Asman before pointing out the double standard in how differently the Times covered Democratic and Republican presidents.
Providing more reasons why it was an abomination he was allowed to moderate a GOP presidential debate, CNBC’s John Harwood took to Twitter on Tuesday where he offered Republican opposition to ObamaCare and racism as reasons why President Obama’s Democratic Party lost so many seats nationwide during his administration. Part of one tweet: "Obama's race amid white fear of cultural change."
A confidant of Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta explained in an e-mail how to get the New York Times to change how the daily newspaper covered the secretary of state, according to e-mails made public by WikiLeaks from the chairman's hacked Gmail account.
Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden told Podesta how former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg met with Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the Times, to get the paper to stop treating him like a billionaire dilettante instead of a third-term mayor.
Modern journalists have little in common with those I was privileged to know when I was a copyboy at NBC News in Washington in the '60s. Today's "journalists" will disagree, but as numerous surveys have shown, the public trust in what is collectively called the media has sunk to an all-time low. Only the media think they don't have to change and can continue to sell a product more and more people refuse to buy.
To the surprise of probably few readers, the media have been doing their best in this election to cover for Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals and Wednesday night provided the latest case as the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to acknowledge new revelations from hours earlier via the latest WikiLeaks dump that included more coziness between Clinton and the media.
