Mitt Romney was the sole Republican to vote to impeach Donald Trump, and the New York Times front page on Thursday demonstrated its strange new respect for the Utah Republican the same candidate it spent 2012 vilifying for standing between Barack Obama and a second term -- in Mark Leibovich’s “An Act of Defiance Against a Party He’d Personified.” A text box on the jump page cast Romney as making a brave stand: “Recognizing that breaking ranks may bring ‘unimaginable’ consequences.” Yet Leibovich gleefully went along with Obama’s smear tactics against Romney during the 2012 campaign.
Near the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, panelist Hugh Hewitt responded to a question by host Chuck Todd regarding whether or not the Ukraine scandal would hurt Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden. In his response, Hewitt stressed the importance of relying on “one standard” when it comes to surveilling Americans; arguing that if enough probable cause existed to use a FISA warrant against Carter Page, there was definitely enough evidence to justify a warrant to surveil Hunter Biden.
At the start of last week, the liberal media had a nervous breakdown after former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced he was thinking about running for president as an independent. The liberal media was worried that he was doing to damage the changes for Democrats so they did what they could to beat up on him. They ripped into him so much, that during Sunday’s Meet the Press, on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was seemingly impressed he withstood it all.
Following controversial Republican nominee, Corey Stewart’s win for Virginia Senate race and Never Trumper Mark Sanford’s loss in South Carolina’s race, MSNBC devoted a lengthy segment to discussing everything wrong morally with the Republican party, on Stephanie Ruhle’s show, June 13. Using Stewart’s win as the starting point, Ruhle’s liberal guests teared into the GOP and Christians for losing their “conscience” and “selling their souls” for President Trump, whom one guest claimed didn’t even have any notable accomplishments in office to date.
In an astounding display of obliviousness, panelists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe claimed multiple times on Thursday that the Stormy Daniels story had not been given much media attention.
If you can’t say something nice....by tradition, newspaper obituaries hold back criticism in the name of respect for the deceased and their grieving admirers, with even political figures granted reverence. But often conservatives are the exception, with outlets like the New York Times granting themselves free reign to criticize. Sunday obit of Hall of Fame pitcher and conservative Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, written by Richard Goldstein, shows the differing standards by which liberal and conservative politicians are held, even in death. It started with the headline: “Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame Pitcher Turned Cantankerous Senator, Dies at 85.”
Sunday’s New York Times Magazine featured a 6,000-word cover profile of Hillary Clinton by Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for the magazine: “Her Way.” And the article indeed went all “her way,” skipping her scandals, bashing Donald Trump and hailing the caring, dogged thoughtfulness of the Democratic candidate. This supposed sit-down with Hillary opened with a long list of condemnations of Trump over issues that have been full aired. It was quite unlike Leibovich's profiles of Republicans, which are crammed with unflattering lines.
The co-hosts at CBS This Morning on Thursday interviewed a New York Times correspondent on the Wikileaks release, yet somehow avoided mentioning that journalist Mark Leibovich offered to let the Clinton campaign have “veto” power over what he published. In a Wikileaks document, the Times’s Leibovich said this to Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri on questions to the candidate: “i wanted the option to use all -- and you could veto what you didn't want. That's why i selected the 5 or 6 I sent to you.”
According to New York Times writer Mark Leibovich, the combination of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren and others will make the Democrats the “party of grown-ups.” The journalist appeared on CBS This Morning and sneered, “I think one of the things the Democrats have going for them, especially in comparison to Trump, is they can be seen as the party of grown-ups.”
CBS This Morning co-hosts brought on liberal New York Times writer Mark Leibovich, Friday, to declare that Republicans “lose either way” in the current Donald Trump vs. Ted Cruz fight. Leibovich also praised Hillary Clinton’s “solemn” response to the Brussels terror attack. Regarding the fight between the two GOP candidates, the journalist insisted, “People are asking, ‘Is this good for Donald Trump? Is this good for Ted Cruz?; First of all, I think Republicans lose either way.”
Following the horrific shooting at an Oregon community college last week, during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday New York Times Magazine writer Mark Leibovich conveniently blamed the NRA for preventing gun control legislation from passing Congress. The liberal journalist complained that the issue of guns is “politicized because the NRA pretty much owns more than half of Congress. That is why this issue is basically immutable. You mentioned the constitution, public opinion. The other piece is the political impossibility...”
During an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, Washington Post reporter Ed O’Keefe argued that Hillary Clinton’s decision to compare Republicans with terrorists on the issue of women’s issues was a sign of weakness coming from her presidential campaign. O’Keefe suggested that Clinton’s comments were meant to “solidify the Democratic base and sort of remind that she's willing to be that partisan warrior that they're seeking...But I saw that sort of as a sign of desperation or at least an attempt to sort of tamper down the idea that others are surging or that they're going to get in.”
