In light of the bombshell Fox News Channel report on Wednesday night about the Clinton Foundation, the liberal media’s shameful cover-up and smearing of the story continued well into Thursday afternoon as MSNBC acknowledged the story but repeatedly chided Fox News perpetuating a story using “anonymous sources” that’s not “corroborated or substantiated.”
While WikiLeaks revelations concerning corruption at the Clinton Foundation where released today, on Thursday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC’s political correspondent Kasie Hunt obnoxiously stated that “Hillary Clinton is enjoying an enormous honeymoon period. Whether it’s with the press who covers her or whether it’s with the polling. She's really riding high.”
Between Monday night and late Tuesday, various media outlets made the bizarre comparison between Melania Trump’s CNN interview defending husband Donald Trump against allegations of sexual assault to the infamous sit down then-First Lady Hillary Clinton gave to NBC’s Today in 1998 where she denounced accusations against President Bill Clinton as part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
ABC's morning and evening newscasts, as of Saturday morning, have yet to report on the Friday release of purported excerpts from some of Hillary Clinton's speeches to corporate audiences. The same programs on Friday evening and Saturday morning hyped the vulgar Donald Trump audio from 2005. By contrast, Friday's CBS Evening News mentioned how the website Wikileaks "published...some embarrassing excerpts from her [Clinton's] paid Wall Street speeches." Saturday's Today on NBC and CBS This Morning Saturday also aired full reports on the potentially-problematic revelations for the Democratic nominee," as the latter program put it.
During her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell gleefully cheered Joe Biden campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Ohio: “...this is classic Joe Biden, this is Joe from Scranton, talking about all of those working class blue-collar labor towns that you know well in Pennsylvania and Ohio and this is the heart and soul of the Democratic strategy in the rust belt.”
On Tuesday, ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning newscasts, along with CNN's New Day, all failed to cover a jury convicting Pennsylvania's Democratic attorney general, Kathleen Kane, on two felony charges of perjury and seven other criminal counts. MSNBC covered the breaking news of the verdict on The Rachel Maddow Show on Monday, and on Tuesday's Morning Joe. Fox News Channel gave news briefs on Kane's conviction on Tuesday's Fox and Friends.
Despite covering both Hillary Clinton’s Tuesday rally with President Obama and her Wednesday speech in Atlantic City, NBC News correspondent/MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell and her colleagues were still harping Wednesday afternoon on their narrative that FBI Director James Comey’s announcement has “overshadowed” Clinton’s campaign and what “was supposed to be a triumphant week.”
The establishment press must not think that anyone should care about the millions of dollars Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary have "earned" making speeches, particularly to powerful banks and Wall Street firms, since he left the presidency in 2001 and after her time as Secretary of State ended in 2013.
That's the only explanation as to why Mrs. Clinton could promise, as she did on Tuesday, that the economy won't be rigged in favor of Wall Street if she is elected President, and then have a lapdog like MSNBC's Kasie Hunt completely fail to touch on the deep and shameless hypocrisy in Mrs. Clinton's statement. At least Hunt acknowledged that the economy, after 7-1/2 long years under President Barack Obama, "has been for many Americans slow to recover." No kidding, Kasie.
In the moments following Hillary Clinton’s “heartfelt” remarks on the economy, MSNBC on Tuesday showered the candidate with their ritualistic, post-appearance bravado. Correspondent Kristen Welker described the occasion as one where Clinton “turned up the heat on Trump.” As for reporter Kasie Hunt, the speech was one from a candidate who is “in a groove.”
Frequent MSNBC guest and Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein thinks that Donald Trump is very close to “talking about internment camps.” Rather than discuss the mounting concerns over the pending influx of people into our country, on Thursday, the Morning Joe squad picked apart Trump’s every word at a rally in Atlanta.
On Wednesday, the Morning Joe crew provided viewers with their daily dose of Hillary Clinton propagandizing. Over the past few weeks, Clinton crossed the finish line in her Democratic primary battle, promoted her foreign policy positions in the wake of Orlando’s terrorism, and capitalized on the recent gaffes from her Republican opponent. Thanks to MSNBC, we are reminded that through it all, Clinton has found her voice.
Clinton campaign advisor Joel Benenson's recent whining about how "negative" the "tone" was from the Bernie Sanders campaign prompted an incredulous reaction from NBC's Kasie Hunt.
