With the generic ballot getting tighter and Republican candidates increasingly pulling ahead in some races, the liberal media’s prediction (really more of a promise) of a “blue wave” seemed to be in jeopardy. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was holding out hope for the wave as he kicked off the panel discussion with reams of favorable numbers from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll recently released.
Twice this week, CNN host Don Lemon has given attention to claims that Georgia Republicans have engaged in "voter suppression" against black voters without mentioning key parts of the Republican side of the argument. And MSNBC finally mentioned that Georgia Republican gubernatorial nominee and current Secretary of State Brian Kemp has charged that "sloppy" work by a liberal group is to blame many of the 53,000 registrations mostly of minorities being put on hold, although New York Times reporter Alstead Herndon dismissed the claims as he appeared as a guest.
While anchoring for a two-hour block on MSNBC Friday afternoon, host Katy Tur just couldn’t seem get Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’s name right, repeatedly calling him “Rick.” Her confusion over the GOP Congressman’s moniker became so bad that even the college students at the University of South Florida campus she was broadcasting from had to correct her.
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
With the midterm elections fast approaching liberal journalists have begun paving the way for a blue wave of Democratic wins. This past month saw the media hype machine pump-up Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as the “antidote” to the “Trump era.” His opponent, incumbent Ted Cruz, was derided as the “type of man who would sell his family into slavery” to get elected. Lefty writers, hosts and pundits also tried to rally Democratic voters by actually blaming Donald Trump for Hurricane Florence.
With the liberal media unable to vocalize on camera their spin while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Seeking to push back against the liberal media’s rush to convict Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh of being a serial, sexually violent criminal, Kavanaugh attorney Beth Wilkinson spent Wednesday on a media tour across broadcast and cable news, but none were as tense as her battle with MSNBC’s Katy Tur. As usual, Tur only brought the proverbial knife to a gun fight when it comes to the facts and presumption of innocence with Wilkinson emerging as the real adult.
Reacting to Tuesday’s sentencing of Bill Cosby for sexual assault, CNN and MSNBC guests were allowed without pushback by CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin and MSNBC Live’s Katy Tur to compare Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the sexually violent celebrity who’s had 60 women accuse him of sexual misconduct.
In the Democratic kangaroo court, the burden of proof is on the accused -- when he's a Republican. On Monday's MTP Daily, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said: "it is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations, rather than Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez."
Wednesday afternoon’s MSNBC Live illustrated where the left stood on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco as host Katy Tur aired a video mash-up comparing Kavanaugh to other men such as the late Roger Ailes, Corey Lewandowski, Roy Moore, and Rob Porter because they too were firmly defended by President Trump as they faced their own allegations of sexual impropriety. In reality, Tur’s comparison is ghoulish at worst and, at best, misguided.
While the coverage of Hurricane Florence has increased as the storm’s landfall on the Carolina coast became imminent, that did not necessarily mean that the media rolled back their negative coverage of the Trump administration. On CNN’s New Day, John Avlon cited two Harvard scientists who argued that President Trump’s environmental policies will cause 80,000 unnecessary deaths every decade.
On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur predictably exploited Hurricane Florence to push the left’s climate change agenda and condemn “deniers” in the Trump administration. She brought on liberal environmental activist Bill Nye and ex-Clinton administration official Paul Bledsoe to provide even more alarmist rhetoric.
