On Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur hoped the United States would be reshaped into a socialist country following the coronavirus pandemic as she recited a wish list of left-wing agenda items for Democrats to pursue amid the crisis.
It’s been nearly a week since a former Joe Biden staffer leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them. In that same time period, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.
Silver linings accompany most catastrophic events, and one major one with the coronavirus is the remarkable way Americans (and people throughout the world) have come together to fight this outbreak. Though the stock market has reflected a nation in panic, in other respects Americans, for the most part, have reacted responsibly, unselfishly and cooperatively, and I pray we are making substantial progress toward flattening the growth curve of this virus.
As our friend Emily Jashinsky with The Federalist and others have chronicled and tweeted, MSNBC Live with Katy Tur briefly flew off the rails Thursday when former Obama officials Craig Fugate and Andy Slavitt found themselves at odds over how local, state, and federal governments should respond to the coronavirus when Fugate stormed off because he didn’t “have time to listen to bullshit people.”
MSNBC Live viewers got an unfortunate display of civic illiteracy on Tuesday as host Katy Tur invited former Obama Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on to take a gratuitous shot at current Secretary Betsy DeVos and the federal government's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur denounced President Trump for shaking hands and touching the microphone during a coronavirus press conference on Friday. The scolding came despite the fact that National Institutes of Health director Dr. Anthony Fauci rejected the notion that those minor interactions endangered anyone’s health.
Exactly four years before Joe Biden cursed at a voter and appeared to threaten him with physical violence, Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, grabbed a reporter by the arm. Both events triggered national media coverage, but even though Biden is the actual candidate and Lewandowski just a staffer, it was the Lewandowski moment four years ago that triggered the most coverage, and the most negative commentary.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Tuesday afternoon, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore lamented that his fellow Bernie Sanders supporters in Michigan were “people who are filled with an incredible, profound sense of despair.” The millionaire, who owns multiple homes, pleaded with voters to back the socialist senator – who is also a millionaire who owns multiple homes.
In an exchange between radical left-wing Hollywood director Rob Reiner and MSNBC anchor Katy Tur on Wednesday afternoon, Reiner came across as the more reasonable one. While he voiced his support for Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic race, Tur worried that the liberal former Vice President would not be “extreme” enough to the liking of far-left voters.
On her Friday afternoon show, MSNBC host Katy Tur was again beating the climate alarmism drum as she devoted a segment to fretting over the fact that Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate advocating all 10 action items called for by the left-wing environmental group, Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund.
In the skewed world of Charlotte Alter, the center is liberal 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg and Barack Obama made voting an “act of love.” MSNBC on Tuesday brought on the Time magazine author to explain the state of millennials politics and how her generation will “transform America.” The book, The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, pulls its title from a Barack Obama speech.
In response to reports that a part of Antarctica recently reached a record high temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit, some media outlets descended into climate alarmism as they sloppily reported the findings. But, as pointed out at ClimateDepot, climate skeptic Jim Steele this week wrote up a piece debunking claims that the occurrence is a sign of global warming, and even cited studies suggesting Antarctica has actually been cooling for decades.
