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.”
On Tuesday, the hosts and correspondents of NBC’s Today could not contain their excitement as they gloated over the failure of the Republican Senate health care bill. “For seven years Republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn ObamaCare, but this morning their latest plan has come to a screeching halt,” proclaimed fill-in co-host Willie Geist.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the revised version of the GOP health care bill on Thursday, which added provisions meant to entice both the conservative and left-leaning members of the Republican Party. And despite the fact that the Congressional Budget Office had yet to release their report on the revisions, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) wasted no time in tearing it down with the usual fake news of massive cuts to Medicaid.
On Tuesday on MSNBC, as he was being interviewed by members of the press, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's audio suddenly and completely went away. After discussing a reported meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian "lawyer" named Natalia Veselnitskaya, Graham said: "I’m sure they (Trump officials) met with a lot of people during the campaign. I’m sure the Clinton campaign met with —" ... well, we don't know what he said after that. That's because the network's Kasie Hunt, clearly without warning the cameraperson involved, decided that she didn't want to hear about Mrs. Clinton, and that she instead needed to run over and speak with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
