Filling in as the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday, Mark Steyn wasted little at the top of the program to slam the liberal media for their “hysteria” surrounding President Trump’s trip to Iraq to spend Christmastime with the troops. Dubbing it “yet another liberal media meltdown”, Steyn pointed out how they took “the opportunity to turn a presidential visit to American troops into an attack on Trump.”
On Thursday, Germany’s largest newspaper, Der Spiegel suffered a massive embarrassment when it was discovered that one of their more prominent reporters, Claas Relotius, made-up many of his stories. To make the discovery even funnier, CNN had once given him their “Journalist of the Year” commendation. It was an opportunity Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson couldn’t pass up, especially considering the efforts by CNN’s media reporters to bolster the left-wing ad boycott of his show.
Liberal cable and broadcast networks have completely ignored a Detroit Judge’s finding that federal laws against female genital mutilation are unconstitutional. As of noon on Wednesday, Fox News remains the only television news outlet to have reported on this controversial decision.
As CNN’s embarrassing denial continues concerning the very dubious July 26 Trump Tower story, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson and conservative author Mark Steyn had some fun Thursday night mocking the “meta-lying” surrounding the CNN story led in part by “fraudulent character” Carl Bernstein.
On Tuesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, fill-in host Mark Steyn and The Hill’s Joe Concha enjoyed themselves at the expense of the latest liberal media diatribes, showcasing new cases of the incurably stupid Trump Derangement Syndrome involving everything from the death of Charles Manson to the attack on Republican Senator Rand Paul (Ky.).
Having a bad day? Well, you’ve come to the right place. On Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, conservative pundit Mark Steyn hysterically dismantled CNN’s Russia coverage, arguing it was worse than their Malaysian plane coverage and the only plot twist left is for “Anderson Cooper and Elmo in the CNN space ship” to save “Earth...from the rupture in the space time continuum.”
Even before President Donald Trump announced on Thursday, June 1, that the U.S. was pulling out of the Paris Accord regarding climate change, Eric Wemple -- a media blogger for the Washington Post -- slammed one of Trump's "favorite television shows,” Fox & Friends, which airs mornings on the Fox News Channel, as “a planetary threat.”
The columnist began by stating he would “gauge the sophistication of climate change discussion” on the program, referring to remarks made by Mark Steyn, whom he dismissed as just “a conservative commentator.”
In a speech at a Republican Lincoln Day dinner in West Virginia earlier this week, Murray Energy Corp. founder and CEO Robert Murray decried the Obama administration's determination to, as described at the financial news site SNL.com (to be clear, no relation to Saturday Night Live), "bypass the states and their utility commissions, the U.S. Congress and the Constitution in favor of putting the U.S. EPA in charge of the nation's electric grid."
In the establishment press, Murray's speech was only covered in a single snarky paragraph by Darren Goode at the Politico titled "Don't Hold Back Now" — obviously attempting to paint Murray as unreasonable and extreme — and a writeup at the Wheeling (WV) Intelligencer. After all, what does Murray know? He's only the head of the largest company in an industry which is still responsible for fueling 39 percent of America's electrical grid, and the majority of it in many states. Who would want to give him any visibility, as if he has anything valuable to say? Well, I do.
On the June 24 edition of Hannity, National Review’s Mark Steyn was invited to the program to discuss the notion in much of the media that the Confederate flag is a Republican problem. Steyn slammed the history of the Democratic Party as one filled with hate: “The Democratic Party was the largest and most powerful institution supporting slavery in the English speaking world.”
Though the networks have been silent on Barack Obama's latest slam against Christians, writer Mark Steyn unloaded on the President, Wednesday. Appearing on Hannity, the commentator responded to Obama's critique of "less than loving Christians" by highlighting the murder of Kenyan Christians: "This is a guy who's happy to draw general lessons when a black youth gets killed in Ferguson, Missouri. That apparently has wide application for black people all over America. But 148 black corpses has no general application!"
On Thursday, the tag team of FNC’s Sean Hannity and conservative author Mark Steyn slammed the weak response by American journalists and satirists to the recent terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in France. On the January 8 edition of FNC’s Hannity, the host asked Steyn to make his case about how the “media has cowered in the face of radical Islamists.”
There is no escaping the fact that, where Benghazi is concerned, there is blood in the water and the mainstream media has (at long last) picked up the scent. Yesterday, the sharks representing the three major TV networks circled Press Secretary Jay Carney, bombarding him with questions that were uncharacteristically tough.
ABC’s Jonathan Karl, who broke the story that the talking points underwent twelve revisions, had the aspect and attitude of a man scorned and determined to set the record straight as much to clear his own name as to ascertain the truth. When Carney attempted to weasel out of his claim earlier in the week that the White House had merely made minor “stylistic” changes to the talking points, Karl was adamant and unrelenting.
