Thursday’s Hardball featured a thick, heavy lather of liberal love for everyone from the Obamas to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, all thanks to an ebullient host Chris Matthews hours after the House voted to formalize the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
The New York Times broke the story late Thursday night with this headline: “Justice Dept. Is Said to Open Criminal Inquiry Into Its Own Russia Investigation.” Then came the front page sub-headline: “The move is likely to raise alarms that President Trump is using the Justice Department to go after his perceived enemies.”
New York Times media reporter John Koblin made the front page of Monday’s Business section with “As News Drives Late Night, Anchors Join A-List,” which snuck in ideological bias and promoted MSNBC host (and Russia-gate obsessive) Rachel Maddow with a photo talking to late-night host Stephen Colbert. Yet again, the Times promotes and celebrates the mere fact of liberals talking to liberals, with the anti-Trump ideological content unacknowledged, while liberal Times readers experience the joy of raeding about their left-wing heroes on both sides of the desk.
There comes a time in life when you have to take the loss and admit defeat when you fail, unless you are Hillary Clinton and the media powerhouse that supported her, that is. Yes, the never-ending pity party continued as Clinton appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show Wednesday as part of a tour to promote her and her daughter’s new book, Gutsy Women.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow came to The View midway through Thursday’s show to discuss the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and her new book. During her time there, she defended Adam Schiff’s lies, suggested Vice President Pence would be impeached too, and defended MSNBC as a nonpartisan news network.
In what is shocking news, the leftist dynamic duo of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CBS’s Stephen Colbert had a field day being in the company of one another on Tuesday’s The Late Show. So much so, that Colbert dedicated half of his hour time slot to hosting Maddow for essentially what was a Trump-bashing gossip session.
If you happen to be drinking coffee and reading the print New York Times this coming Sunday, a word of warning: Put your drink down first or you might gag on the long, very long, profile of “oracle” Rachel Maddow. The online version by Amanda Hess trumpeted, “This Is the Moment Rachel Maddow Has Been Waiting For.”
It's always amusing when reporters insist that they're not "stenographers to power," but when you look at their interviews with Democrats, they often come across as stenographers -- extremely accomodating, and not at all challenging. Take for example, Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut in his interviews on the Ukrainian kerfuffle on Wednesday. None of his three national TV interviews seriously raised the idea that he or other Democratic senators pressed Ukraine in a similar way to President Trump to cooperate with their domestic political goals.
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
