What happened to believing women when they speak out against powerful male accusers? On Thursday, evidence broke of a 2006 incident in which Democrat Al Franken groped and forcibly kissed TV and radio personality Leeaan Tweeden. Photographic proof backs up her claim. Yet MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt described the now-Senator's predatory behavior as "not actually groping — but mock groping her while she was asleep."
The portion of former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile’s book exposing ethically questionable behavior by the Clinton campaign surprisingly got a lot of play on the network Sunday morning shows. But during NBC’s Meet the Press, former anchor Tom Brokaw was not pleased with Brazile for shedding light on how the Clinton campaign bought the DNC and added it to their campaign arsenal.
Senator Chuck Schumer performed the political version of a Sgt. Schultz routine that was seen on today's Morning Joe. It happened during an interview by MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt for this Sunday's Kasie DC show. When the clip was played, the Morning Joe crew went into a state of high mirth, led by Willie Geist, over Schumer's much less than believable profession of ignorance over the charge by former head of the DNC, Donna Brazile, that the Hillary Clinton campaign rigged the Democrat primary.
On Thursday night, the internet briefly descended into chaos as President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account had disappeared and was nowhere to be found until it was restored 11 minutes later. The account reappeared without explanation until Twitter’s official electoral and government relations account provided a bizarre explanation that it was “due to human error by a Twitter employee.”
On the debut episode of her Kasie DC show on Sunday, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt hinted at the kind of anti-conservative comments that conservatives imagine liberal journalists make about them when they think they're not being observed. While introducing a discussion about former White House advisor Steve Bannon's speech at the Values Voters Summit, Hunt let it slip that one of her guests -- Jake Sherman of Politico -- had stated something about Bannon "off the air" that she would not repeat "because it's a family program."
On Thursday’s Morning Joe, the panel demonstrated that they are so consumed by their Russia-Trump collusion conspiracy theory that they will go to absolutely absurd lengths, even going against their own reporting and information displayed right in front of their faces, in order to support their preconceptions.
Amid MSNBC celebrating Arizona Senator John McCain refusing to support the latest Republican effort to repeal ObamaCare on Friday, anchor Katy Tur led her panel of fellow liberal journalists in hailing ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel for his role in killing the GOP health care legislation.
The GOP effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare is back before the Senate, and so too are the deceitful tactics employed by liberal reporters in their obvious effort to build opposition to the measure. Thursday evening’s newscasts on ABC and NBC each included one-sided stories about the fears of mothers of babies with high medical costs — but neither network told viewers that both of the women were activists, not random participants in the health care system.
At an event held by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on Wednesday, former President Barack Obama spoke out and smeared GOP lawmakers for trying to get rid of ObamaCare. “It's certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents,” he told the crowd. And during their evening broadcasts, both CBS and NBC applauded Obama’s condemnation.
Filling in for Andrea Mitchell during MSNBC’s 12 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, anchor Kasie Hunt noted that Vice President Mike Pence had just arrived in Texas to tour storm damage and meet with victims of Hurricane Harvey, claiming he was taking “a different tack than the President took when he visited the region on Monday.”
After the all-night battle over the GOP’s attempt to repeal parts of ObamaCare, that ended in failure early Friday morning, MSNBC couldn’t stop gushing over the “maverick” Republican whose casting vote against the bill was the lynchpin that sealed the deal. Senator John McCain was one of the three Republicans who voted against their own party’s bill, and the liberal news network couldn’t stop praising him for defecting from the Republicans plan to repeal ObamaCare.
Thursday’s NBC Nightly News featured one of the classic tricks in the liberal media playbook as Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt declined to disclose the liberal activist history of a woman in her story about the Senate push to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Prior to the live shot at the end of her segment, Hunt explained that “all the uncertainty” about ObamaCare “worries Theresa Bohannan” because “[h]er son was born with a rare heart condition.”
