For the second straight day, MSNBC’s Hardball dismissed any and all Republican questions on Wednesday about bias inside the FBI as modern-day McCarthyism that’s a smoke screen “destroying” and “hurting” America. Host Chris Matthews predictably set the tone, referring to Republicans such as Senator Ron Johnson (Wisc.) as “toadies” being ordered by the White House to “do anything to deflect or distract or discredit from Bob Mueller because they think trouble is coming.”
In an interview with The Washington Post Tuesday, Hillary Clinton basically admitted she holds a double standard on when to believe women’s stories of sexual assault. In the most recent episode of The Post’s podcast, “Cape Up” host Jonathan Capehart sat down with Clinton to discuss her book and all of the accusations against those in the media, entertainment and politics that have been circulating in the past several weeks
A new survey revealing white millennials aren’t as liberal as their “enlightened” minority peers has liberal columnists at The Washington Post spooked and afraid this Halloween. Jonathan Capehart admitted in today’s paper, that the survey’s results were “alarming” and “worrisome” because they revealed white millennials weren’t as virulently anti-Trump or radically liberal in their political viewpoints as their peers. The horror!
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.
On Wednesday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, a panel that included host Mitchell, Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, and New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor spent several minutes fretting over Trump administration immigration policy with Alcindor suggesting that it would "enact racist laws." And Capehart worried that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "very dangerous" and will try to "hold minorities down."
Not exactly the top authority when it comes to sober analysis, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews teamed up with panelists on Wednesday night to deem President Trump as mentally unstable while a guest hailed Hillary Clinton’s book excerpt about debating Trump as “remarkable.”
During Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during discussions of the white racist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, White House advisors were repeatedly referred to by panel members as "Nazis" or "white supremacists." And in one segment, as the group fretted over Colin Kaepernick's outcast status in the NFL, ESPN columnist William C. Rhoden oddly claimed that "a lot of players" in both the NFL and Major League Baseball "have kind of support from these people -- the Nazis or white supremacists," as host Joy Reid responded in agreement.
After all three broadcast networks fretted Wednesday morning over the Justice Department taking steps to challenge Affirmative Action policies that may discriminate against white students, on her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show, anchor Andrea Mitchell worried the move had the “potential to reopen long decided cases of Affirmative Action, which is alarming civil rights groups and academic institutions across the country.”
There is probably no one in Congress more openly opposed to President Donald Trump than Maxine Waters. We have already seen that she has called for Trump's impeachment. Therefore when even Waters there is not yet any evidence at this time of Trump-Russia collusion, that is certainly significant. That is why it is astonishing that Washington Post opinion writer Jonathan Capehart left that significant admission made during his own podcast off his column about it.
At the top of her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell enthusiastically touted liberal protesters showing up to congressional town hall meetings: “Republican Congress members getting an earful back home as they prepare to rollout their plan to repeal ObamaCare.” However, back in 2010, Mitchell was frightened by such “angry” displays by Tea Party demonstrators attending public meetings with Democratic lawmakers.
President Barack Obama finally reached the lowest level of unemployment during his presidency; that is at the end of his presidency. Liberal journalists touted his success, while some knocked President-Elect Donald Trump. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Dec. 2, that the economy added 178,000 jobs in November. The same reported showed the unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent, a low not seen since 2007.
It would appear that being a Washington Post columnist means never having to say you're sorry — even if you are a member of the paper's editorial board.
Beginning on July 7, the Post's Jonathan Capehart set out to advance the agenda of a group called Freedom for All Americans (FFAA), an outfit which believes it has proven that there is, in Capehart's words, "a 'vast right-wing conspiracy' out to deny" lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans "their humanity and dignity." In a follow-up column, Capehart commmitted a pathetic error which the paper has failed to appropriately correct.
