Rachel Maddow touted another Trump scandal on September 6, that the Air Force was putting "taxpayer money directly into the president's pocket" by using Glasgow Prestwick Airport near his Turnberry resort in Scotland, according to Politico. But Byron York reported "The only problem with the Politico story was that it was not the whole story. In fact, it omitted so much important information that it hardly qualified as a story at all."
If the left is so loving, tolerant and inclusive, why is it so driven by unquenchable bitterness? What fuels it to divide Americans? No, I'm not talking about the Democratic presidential candidates, though any one of them demonstrates the same theme. The American left is just gorged with angst and apparently on a mission to share its misery. The insanity emanating from leftists today is overwhelming.
Just hours after MSNBC’s John Heilemann compared the idea of holding migrant children and their families in detention centers as they await adjudication of their asylum claims to “concentration camps,” primetime host Rachel Maddow had equally hyperbolic analysis. According to Maddow, the migrant detention centers are “kind of like Guantanamo.”
Ed Whelan at National Review objected on Friday to a Rachel Maddow segment on MSNBC Thursday night strongly implying that Trump judicial nominee Steven Menashi is a white nationalist based on a paper he wrote on "Ethnonationalism and Liberal Democracy." Menashi was writing about Israel -- and yet the word "Israel" never passed Maddow's lips
Alert! The good news continues to roll in for the Fox News Channel, which was the most-watched basic cable television network across total day and primetime viewing during the week of August 5-11, a feat FNC has accomplished for 31 consecutive weeks. In addition, the Hannity program at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7, delivered a 3.3 million total and 546,000 in the coveted demographic of viewers from 25 to 54 years of age. The milestone was an apparent result of the FNC host exclusively interviewing 2020 Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City.
Sixteen months ago, The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC surpassed the ratings of rival Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel, and people wondered if the liberal network might actually replace the top-rated TV news source. That situation has changed dramatically, and on Tuesday, the Nielsen company released ratings for July, in which Hannity was declared the top-rated program in cable news for the fourth month in a row while Maddow slid to fifth place in the 9 p.m. time slot.
After more than two fruitless years accusing President Trump of collusion with Russia, some liberals apparently still consider that tactic a winning strategy -- when used to attack anyone even remotely connected to the Republican occupant of the White House. One example of that is the claim from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Kevin Poulsen of the liberal Daily Beast website since both have suggested links between the One America News Network -- which Trump has called his new favorite news outlet -- and Russian propaganda.
As our friends at the Washington Examiner and Washington Free Beacon have reported, former MSNBC host Krystal Ball eviscerated her former employer MSNBC during The Hill TV’s Rising by comparing them to Infowars for their breathlessly deranged coverage of the “feverish Russian conspiracy theories,” suggesting the Mueller hearing would resonate in middle America, and not showing accountability.
Wednesday night after the much anticipated Mueller hearings, MSNBC hosts scrambled to make something new of the testimony. In spite of their bests efforts, nothing they didn’t already know had presented itself. Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow decided that in order to really understand the situation, Mueller’s staff also need to testify. Yes, that’s right: More hearings.
On Monday night, MSNBC star Rachel Maddow gushed over Rep. Ilhan Omar, letting her give two-minute speeches in between softball questions. When it was over, Maddow proclaimed "thank you for your time this evening. I'm sure these last few days have been incredibly stressful. You taking time to talk us about it is an honor." When the liberals grouse that Trump will only go on Fox News to get softball interviews, imagine Omar sitting down on Hannity. This is the polar opposite. Genuflect, genuflect, genuflect.
In a predictably fawning interview with Women’s World Cup soccer champion and left-wing activist Megan Rapinoe Tuesday night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow hailed the athlete for being “more and more articulate in terms of using the platform that you’ve got to say what you think ought to be happening in the world.” The liberal anchor even joked about Rapinoe possibly running for president.
After two nights, NBC/MSNBC has proved that they deserve the nickname “MSDNC.” The twenty Democrats who made the presidential debate stage were treated to questions that were wildly skewed (69%) to the left, with only a scant 13% challenging the candidates to defend their outside-the-mainstream views, a five-to-one disparity.
