New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum's story dealt mostly with media griping about restrictions on the impending impeachment trial coverage. But the lead paragraph rehashed last week’s spat between Sen. Martha McSally, Arizona Republican, and CNN reporter Manu Raju. The print story oddly included two photos of McSally: a CNN screengrab of her “lashing out...,” and one from  Fox News. But attacks on journalists are treated differently when it’s heroic liberal congresswoman Nancy Pelosi making them, especially against a right-leaning reporter.



CNN Newsroom's Jim Sciutto continued CNN's feud with Arizona Senator Martha McSally on Friday by inviting former GOP Senator and Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen to comment on the incident with CNN's Manu Raju.

 


The only thing the media hates more than a Democrat getting humiliated by the right is when the media gets humiliated by the right. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) sparked a media meltdown Thursday morning after calling CNN reporter Manu Raju a “liberal hack.” That afternoon, The Washington Post rushed to Raju’s rescue with an overwrought opinion piece attacking McSally, saying her “outburst” was evidence that Republicans wouldn’t conduct a fair impeachment trial.



Talk about #FirstWorldProblems for the liberal media.  Feigning outrage on Thursday’s Situation Room about how Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) referred to chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju hours earlier as “a liberal hack,” host Wolf Blitzer bemoaned it as a “disgusting” and “awful, awful thing” that, if Arizona voters are smart, could punish her in November (i.e. elect Democrat Mark Kelly instead).



CNN reporter Manu Raju is receiving flowers and sympathy notes from his distraught colleagues after a Republican Senator gave him a snarky response to a question he asked on impeachment, Thursday. On Capitol Hill, Senator Martha McSally of Arizona was approached by the CNN reporter and asked if “new evidence” would be allowed into the Senate trial on President Trump’s impeachment. McSally kept walking past Raju and responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” After he tried again, she repeated again, “You’re a liberal hack.”



In the first hour since they finally acknowledged a bombshell New York Times story about liberal media confidant/Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) knowing in advance about the whistleblower being used to impugn the presidency, CNN’s The Lead and MSNBC Live circled the wagons on Wednesday afternoon to defend Schiff



Another day, another Joe Biden gaffe, another story framed as "Republicans Pounce" or "Republicans Seize." That's how CNN Inside Politics guest host Nia-Malika Henderson framed the story of the former Vice President's Thursday gaffe where he said that, "Poor kids are just as bright as just as talented as white kids" before immediately correcting himself, "wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids."



In what was a poorly mangled attempt to be the liberal and unfunny Seth Meyers, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper went on a rant Wednesday in which he pretended to throw fits at his staff for not showing clips and tweets of anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), but instead ones that painted the Trump administration and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as not only hypocrites but anti-Semites.



The battle for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Justice on the Supreme Court has resulted in a great tragedy. Michael Avenatti's appearances on television are likely due to be sharply cut back. Why? Because liberals in the mainstream media are now placing the blame for the failure of the Democrats to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation squarely at the feet of Avenatti.



Did you know that the American Bar Association recommended that the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh be halted until after an FBI investigation can be completed? Only one problem with the story. It's not true. 

Before Senator Jeffrey Flake made his vote for Kavanaugh contingent on an FBI investigation, CNN published a story by Manu Raju on August 27 about the ABA making a similar recommendation. It turned out the recommendation only came from the ABA president, not as an approved recommendation for that organization as a whole. So where is the correction? 



Breaking in just after noon Eastern on Tuesday for Inside Politics, panelists expressed support for liberal Senators and protesters repeatedly disrupting and trying to delay the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, declaring they “had no choice” and “definitely” have a point about Kavanaugh not being transparent with Americans concerning his time in the Bush White House. 



The American people don't trust the establishment press, as seen in a Pew Research poll result released Thursday showing that only 8 percent of Americans have "a great deal of confidence" that the media will "act in the best interests of the public." Here is one more example showing why this attitude is entirely justified: The Secret Service, after a thorough investigation in response to anonymous, media-promoted smears, is reporting that it found "no information that would indicate" that a misconduct allegation against withdrawn VA nominee Ronny Jackson is true.
