On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC Live with Katy Tur, Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire claimed that the sizeable migrant caravan that set out from Honduras in October 2018 never arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border. Lemire’s statement contradicted literally every mainstream press organization’s reporting about the caravan, which was widely documented as having reached America’s southern border shortly after the 2018 midterm elections.
On the New Year's Day edition of MSNBC Live with Katy Tur, during a discussion of the government shutdown and debate over buildling a border wall, NBC White House correspondent Geoff Bennett suggested that a wall would be a "monument" to "Donald Trump's bigotry" as he quoted a "great piece" by Washington Post columnist and liberal Republican Michael Gerson."
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Monday afternoon to discuss illegal immigration, reporter Cal Perry launched into a rant claiming that anyone criticizing migrant parents for bringing their children on the dangerous journey to the United States was spewing “xenophobic nonsense.” He even claimed that the U.S. was responsible for violence in Latin America.
Meaning no disrespect to climate alarmists of the past half-century, who have been quite formidable in their doomsday warnings, the modern era has ushered in a new wave of scaremongers who threaten to eclipse their predecessors. This shouldn't discourage the original enviro-wackos of the 1970s, who hadn't accumulated sufficient empirical data to support their burgeoning secular religion. Give those people a break; how were they to know they'd have egg on their faces for predicting apocalyptic global cooling? We're much more advanced now, so it's not fair to judge them.
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur led a discussion of President Donald Trump's handling of the illegal immigrant caravan as she and other panel members suggested the President deliberately wishes to stoke violence by stationing military troops on the border with Mexico. Tur also went into a self-admitted "rant" in which she fretted that Trump is exaggerating border security problems for political gain.
On Monday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur gave a commentary in which she fretted that her life may be "pointless" because news anchors like her do not cover "climate change" every day as she also predicted wildfires and storms will keep getting worse because of human activity. She then brought aboard global warming alarmist Michael Mann and gave him an unchallenged forum to complain about inaction as the two alleged that there is no longer any scientific debate over the matter.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
At the end of her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur laughably told her liberal viewers that the reliably left-wing cable channel was not their “safe space” and that “news should make you uncomfortable.” She made those claims just seconds after playing a clip of herself lecturing Trump supporters at a rally in defense of overwhelmingly negative media coverage of the President.
MSNBC anchor Katy Tur sat down with a liberal evangelical pastor and a conservative evangelical activist who supports President Trump on MSNBC Live Monday afternoon to talk about how Trump is doing with evangelical voters these midterms. While Tur let her liberal guest talk at length about how un-Christian Trump is, she berated her conservative guest, and even claimed that abortion was a lesser evil than the former border policy.
During Saturday morning's AM Joy show, as MSNBC's Katy Tur on location at a Brian Kemp campaign event in Georgia spoke with a Republican guest, Tur still seemed unaware that claims of "voter suppression" against state Republicans have been debunked as she asked why so many voters on the pending registration list are minorities.
For anyone who’s at least semi-regularly read NewsBusters, they will know that MSNBC’s Katy Tur has shown her liberal credentials in tussling with conservatives and even struggled with facts from time to time. Both surfaced Thursday afternoon when she told conservative talk radio host Erick Erickson that it’s “offensive” to suggest that “both sides” should cool their rhetoric following Wednesday’s mail bombs to actor Robert de Niro, CNN, and friendly liberal politicians. Rather, Tur argued that a “toxic political environment” only arose when Donald Trump began his presidential bid in 2015.
On Monday afternoon, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and MSNBC's Katy Tur continued their networks' recent history of highlighting misleading claims by Democrats that Georgia Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" against minorities. At 1:40 p.m. Eastern on his Wolf show, Blitzer proclaimed: "Georgia is fast becoming ground zero for the debate over voter suppression." After noting that GOP Secretary of State Brian Kemp is running for governor against Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, the CNN host continued:
