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.
he NBC moderators on Thursday spent the second night of Democratic debates ignoring some of the gaffes, shocking comments and startling positions of the 2020 contenders. Most significantly, moderators Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow, Savannah Guthrie and Jose Diaz-Balart failed to ask Joe Biden about his revelation that the Vice President OPPOSED Barack Obama’s decision to execute the raid that killed terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.
The NBC/MSNBC/Telemundo panel that questioned the first 10 Democratic 2020 candidates spent most of Wednesday night’s debate cuing up liberal talking points and rarely confronted the contenders with the idea that their hard-edged leftism might drive away middle-of-the-road voters. An MRC analysis finds 39 of the questions at the debate echoed liberal talking points or were framed around a liberal world view, vs. only five that challenged liberal/Democratic assumptions.
The NBC and MSNBC hosts for the very first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday catered to the party’s far-left base, offering questions about just how to take guns away from Americans, the need for aggressive action on climate change and repeated questions about how the nominee would fight the looming threat of Mitch McConnell.
It could get nasty tonight and tomorrow when NBC’s moderators bring up the topic of Donald Trump during the Democratic candidates debate. If recent history is a guide expect the moderators to ask questions that push the candidates to criticize Trump and his administration’s policies while treating some candidates – like Bernie Sanders – as heroes. The following are just a few examples of NBC’s debate moderators most liberal moments since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, as culled from the MRC’s archives:
Monday night, Rachel Maddow was back on her crusade for abortion rights highlighting the “sexual assault” of 100 abortion patients subjected to a state mandated pelvic exam and three-day wait period before their abortions. Maddow has been highlighting this apparent humanitarian crisis on her show since the mandate went into effect 3 weeks ago. It was repealed Monday, but not without casualties:
On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back on the pro-choice rallying campaign interviewing Dr. David Eisenberg, the medical director of the last Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Missouri. Dr. Eisenberg began by stating: “I really appreciate the opportunity and for you to tell our story so well in national media and explain what’s been happening here for woman in Missouri.” Maddow has been keeping a close eye on Missouri over the last few weeks, frequently warning viewers ad nausea that it may be the first state to “go dark” on abortion.
President Trump made more headlines Wednesday night after he told ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be fine with taking “oppo research” on his 2020 opponent from foreign countries. This comment drew criticism. But during their almost two hours and 30 minutes of prime time coverage, or hair-on-fire panic, neither CNN nor MSNBC cared to mention that that’s exactly what the Clinton campaign did in 2016 with the now-infamous dossier.
Once the DNC announced it would not permit Fox News to moderate any debates for the 2020 Democratic primary, it was obvious liberal media bias would be on full display during the campaign. As of recently, it was decided not only will MSNBC be hosting the first debate, but Rachel Maddow will be one of the moderators. On Tuesday, Maddow appeared on Late Night with Seth Myers, aired early Wednesday morning, to weigh in with her thoughts on the upcoming debate.
When one can characterize the protective “heartbeat” laws being passed to reinstate the sanctity of life throughout the country as “restrictive” and “terrifying," it is clear society has a grave morality issue. The widespread panic among liberals and their talking heads in the media over the movement to validate the rights of unborn children in the womb is palpable. Rachel Maddow and host Seth Meyers proved Tuesday night on The Late Show to be participants in the hysteria.
