In a 48-page report out Monday, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released their analysis of the Democratic “Raise the Wage Act” to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour. One of the main takeaways from the report was that almost 4 million jobs (3.7 million) could be eliminated by 2025. Of course, since the liberal media have backed this Democratic Party effort, none of the network evening newscasts (ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News) reported the CBO’s findings.
Following up on Friday’s item showing the best (or worst, depending on your word choice) quotes from narcissistic Looney TuneJim Acosta’s book The Enemy of the People, NewsBusters decided it was worth sharing two specific anecdotes that could stand on their own with one pertaining to the press corps in 2016 and the other about Fox News Channel’s John Roberts.
In a highly anticipated ceremony on Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order directing the government to take action in protecting free speech on college campuses. It wasn’t something that enthused the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and, NBC) so they omitted it from their evening broadcasts. Instead, they all cheered on New Zealand for their swift movement in banning so-called “assault weapons”. So, that’s two rights the liberal media seemingly don’t like.
It was a meeting worth taking note of, not just because President Trump was meeting with the so-called “Trump of the Tropics” but because of what it could mean for both countries going forward, and for dealing with the crisis in Venezuela. But the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were apparently bored by Trump’s Tuesday meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and ignored it altogether.
An hour after he trumpeted Thursday’s abrupt end of the second U.S.-North Korea summit, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta appeared in need of a safe space following President Trump’s Hanoi press conference. Acosta wasn’t called on, so he aired his grievances on CNN while falsely suggesting the President had “steered clear largely” of the White House press corps.
As the Media Research Center has documented since his nomination earlier this summer, the liberal media’s seething rage over Kavanaugh’s seemingly inevitable confirmation has only grown more insane as they desperately try to kill the nomination. During Fox News Channel’s Special Report on Tuesday, chief national correspondent Ed Henry diagnosed the liberal media’s mouth foaming fits as “Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome”.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews threw a fit Wednesday night in defense of the liberal media, gushing over a reporter delaying his questions in the White House Press Briefing to give NBC’s Hallie Jackson more time and accusing the White House of running “Kremlin-style” communications office. Matthews misidentified also but clearly took a shot at Fox News's John Roberts for insufficient standing up for CNN’s Jim Acosta during a July 13 press conference in England.
CNN has branded itself as savagely, incessantly anti-Trump, as well as savagely, incessantly anti-Fox News. So why on Earth do they expect that when the president mocks CNN at a press conference, "unity" demands that Fox defend CNN in the moment of the insult? This is especially true of Brian Stelter, who has led the network's attack on Fox as "state-run TV."
After praising President Trump for helping to usher North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to the negotiating table over the weekend, on Monday South Korean President Moon Jae-in suggested that Trump should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. It’s an idea sure to send the anti-Trump resistance into a screaming fit. And true to form, the liberal major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) failed to mention Moon’s suggestion during their evening news broadcasts.
MSNBC flashed some bitterness on Wednesday afternoon following President Trump’s first joint press conference of 2018, complaining that Trump only called on “conservative outlets” Washington Examiner and the Fox News Channel with only the latter one offering “a challenging question.”
Thursday’s White House press briefing was conducted by White House Chief of Staff and Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly (Ret.), who thoroughly enjoyed having the liberal media shouting questions his direction and answering them all. Most importantly, Kelly responded to a question from the Fox Business Network’s Blake Burman about frustrations President Trump has by providing a brief, calm, sober takedown of the liberal media and their misreporting.
A massive revelation in the alleged surveillance of President Trump’s aides broke Monday morning when Bloomberg reported that “[f]ormer National Security Adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.” With their identities unmasked, it allowed for someone to freely and illegally leak their names to the press. It’s controversial news but ABC and NBC both chose to ignore it that night, while CBS defended Rice.
