At another Democratic Party gathering over the weekend, former Vice President Joe Biden had another slip of the tongue and possibly revealing his 2020 candidacy, saying he had “the most progressive record for anybody running [for president]." Of course, the liberals at ABC and NBC got excited and hyped it up during their Sunday morning news broadcasts.
Failed Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke announced his presidential candidacy today, despite his last political campaign ending in a loss to Ted Cruz in 2018. But who needs a stretch of political victories to build momentum for a presidential run when you have gale force winds – in the form of liberal media hype – behind your back?
On Wednesday, NBC’s Today show rushed to defend socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her proposed Green New Deal legislation from common sense criticism offered by First Daughter Ivanka Trump. The broadcast touted leftists on social media attacking Trump for daring to dissent to Ocasio-Cortez’s radical policy ideas by simply saying that Americans “want to work” for financial success rather than “be given something” by the government.
Over the weekend, NBC ran a couple of noteworthy reports on the issue of border security. One focused almost entirely on locals near the border who are complaining about a possible wall, while the other report, as it devoted attention to both sides of the issue, also showed a border security activist being asked by reporter Morgan Radford to respond to critics who accuse him of being a "racist" who wants to "hunt" Mexicans.
On Wednesday, NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke being treated to a fawning sit-down with media mogul and Democratic Party booster Oprah Winfrey Tuesday night. Excited by Winfrey “bringing together the worlds of Hollywood and politics” during her SuperSoul Conversations forum in New York, the network broadcast touted O’Rourke as the “new Obama” and hyped his potential 2020 presidential run.
“Welcome to the Stephen Colbert primary,” that was headline of an online article written by CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter on Monday, as he touted CBS’s Late Show “proving to be a key stop for Democrats who are positioning themselves for 2020 presidential bids.” On Wednesday morning, MSNBC echoed the sentiment, proclaiming the liberal late night comedian to be an “unofficial power broker” in the Democratic primary.
