This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, it’s a look at the media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome as we present the most over-the-top attacks on President Donald Trump. When he wasn’t being compared to tyrants like Benito Mussolini, he was being branded a traitor who sold out America to Vladimir Putin. And of course he was repeatedly tarred as a hateful racist.
How again are the liberal media not a part of the opposition party? On Wednesday’s Cuomo Prime Time on CNN and Hardball on MSNBC, it just so happened that they ran nearly identical segments smearing Republicans for “employ[ing] scare tactics” and “fear-mongering” people into supporting the GOP at the polls. Thankfully, Brooke Baldwin wasn’t on-air during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour of CNN, as host and faux journalist Chris Cuomo mentioned the word “mob.”
It’s evidently going to take some time for the post-Kavanaugh confirmation healing to begin at the New York Times. With near unanimity the paper’s columnists, some of them former reporters, are reacting with anger and contempt over Trump’s victory against the Democrat’s Supreme Court smear campaign. Columnist Paul Krugman rehashed his tired old line about “The Paranoid Style in G.O.P. Politics.” The text box read “Republicans are an authoritarian regime in waiting.” Not to be outflanked, columnist Michelle Goldberg claimed “Trump Gives Dictators the Green Light.”
During Friday’s edition of HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, host Bill Maher and his panel each gave a hypothesis as to who authored the anonymous New York Times op-ed allegedly written by a senior member of the Trump administration. After thanking the op-ed author for their “service” and sharing his theory that White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly wrote it, Maher surmised that For Kelly, working for President Trump “has got to be worse than Iraq,” citing the fact that Kelly called his role as Chief of Staff the “worst job he ever had” in Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, a claim that Kelly denies.
In the midst of a “powerhouse roundtable” discussion during ABC’s This Week about the Bob Woodward book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Sunday, Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for the paper, lashed out at Trump administration officials and declared they should be ashamed that they work for President Trump.
The New York Times sure knows how to pick them, don't they? Trump-Derangement Syndrome sufferer and writer for the national newspaper Michelle Goldberg was on MSNBC’s MTP Daily August 17 to apparently promote the completely original idea that Trump is a dictator. Not only that, but he clearly wants to see people round up and murdered. Obviously!
On All In with Chris Hayes Tuesday night, Hayes and a panel of guests discussed Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and concluded that, in the end, her specific socialist policies don’t matter. After misrepresenting Republican positions, the panel arrived at the conclusion that perception of Ocasio-Cortez trumped her lack of substantive proposals.
Following President Trump’s meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin last Monday, ABC was the first broadcast network to boost hysterical cries of “treason” from loony leftists. During Sunday’s This Week, the network appeared to be getting their employees fitted for their tinfoil hats as they kicked up the lunacy with incessant suggestions that the President was under the direct control of Russia.
Politically frenzied New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg came out unapologetically for the harassment of Trump staffers (the latest examples being Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Florida’s pro-Trump Attorney General Pam Bondi) as summed up in the column’s text box: “Trump officials deserve public shaming.” She followed up by lamenting as "millions and millions of Americans watch helplessly as the president cages children, dehumanizes immigrants, spurns other democracies, guts health care protections, uses his office to enrich himself and turns public life into a deranged phantasmagoria with his incontinent flood of lies."
New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg’s virulently anti-Israel rant Tuesday, “A Grotesque Spectacle in Jerusalem,” was topped with this text box: “A celebration -- and a massacre.” She got truly vicious in Tuesday’s piece, keyed to the deadly protest in Gaza, as the terrorist group Hamas urged Palestinian civilians to rush the fence guarding Israel from attack, some armed with explosives, with predictably deadly results for the Palestinian attackers. Goldberg didn’t see it that way, blaming the celebratory moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, a “grotesque” event attended by Ivanka Trump.
Most liberal opponents of President Trump have been shamed out of throwing around the word “collusion” willy-nilly, as Robert Mueller’s investigation plods along without throwing up much in the way of evidence thus far. But not columnist Michelle Goldberg of The New York Times, still flying the flag of “collusion,” while embracing domestic surveillance organizations: “Truth vs. Power In the Russia Investigation” in Tuesday’s edition.
In another sign of extreme cowardice and censorship of conservatives, The Atlantic and editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg decided to fire conservative and former National Review writer Kevin Williamson on Thursday after just over two weeks since the announcement following vicious backlash to the hiring. The excuse was holding a pro-life position about women aborting children facing the death penalty, but the reality is that it only served as an excuse to pull the trigger.
