Former Vice President Joe Biden found himself at the center of yet another controversy on Thursday, after it was discovered he had stitched together several stories to construct an emotional tale of pinning a medal on a serviceman in Afghanistan. If President Trump got as many details wrong about a story, the liberal media would declare that he was intentionally trying to “gaslight” the country. Instead, ABC and NBC helped him rationalize it, albeit in different ways.
On Tuesday, the hosts of NBC’s Today show fawned over New York Times writer Tatiana Schlossberg, granddaughter of President Kennedy, authoring “a new book that explores the role we all play in climate change.” While the headline on screen throughout the segment labeled Schlossberg an “activist,” the climate crusader was repeatedly referred to as a “journalist” throughout the softball exchange.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
President Trump handed the liberal media more ammunition on Wednesday when he doubled down on his inartful comments criticizing American Jews who voted for Democrats instead of siding with Israel. With the President calling them “disloyal”, accusations of anti-Semitism poured forth from the media. Meanwhile, Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) were wrapped up in their own cases of anti-Semitism and claims of disloyalty, yet the liberal media covered for them.
During a press gaggle early Wednesday afternoon outside the White House, President Donald Trump absolutely tore into CNN, NBC News, The New York Times, and particularly NBC's Peter Alexander as “an organ of the Democrats” who’s “the most biased reporter” that he makes NBC News less credible than CNN. Yikes. That one’s gonna leave a mark! Alexander first poked at Trump with a question about a debate whether to let the G-7 return to being the G-8 by allowing Russia back in following their annexation of Crimea and support for separatists occupying eastern Ukraine.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
Appearing on NBC’s Today show Thursday morning, CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer was the voice of calm, telling his colleagues to “dial back the hysteria” over the economy and reassuring viewers that “the markets are up huge.” He called out those in the press, including NBC, that were “sowing panic” about the possibility of a future recession.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows wailed about President Trump daring to criticize former Democratic Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. However, none of broadcasts had any problem with the wildly irresponsible rhetoric that O’Rourke and other Democrats have employed since the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend.
On Friday, all three network morning shows celebrated far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar returning home to a “hero’s welcome” in Minneapolis from her most ardent liberal supporters following President Trump’s controversial attacks against her. Reporters for CBS, ABC, and NBC all marveled at the staged event while slamming Trump and his supporters as racist.
Amid all the celebratory media coverage hailing the partisan stunt by House Democrats on Tuesday to pass a resolution condemning President Trump as racist, on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning, correspondent Peter Alexander particularly touted the “heavily diverse” liberal lawmakers supporting the legislation while “white men” in the GOP did not.
The first panel discussion on Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press focused entirely on immigration-related topics. A group of supposedly objective reporters whined about President Trump’s immigration policies while moderator Chuck Todd pushed a conspiracy theory that “the damage is done” regarding the citizenship question because even if it does not end up on the census, “many Hispanics may hear that it is on the form and they fear that it’s on the form.”
On Wednesday, the network morning shows uniformly panned President Trump’s Tuesday night launch of his reelection bid in Florida, slamming the speech as “dark,” “scary,” and just rehashing the “same old grudges” against his “perceived enemies.” Reporters dismissed the event as just a continuation of Trump’s 2016 campaign.
