Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple has been a fierce critic of Fox News in the Trump era. So it’s notable that he’s done six pieces on the collapse of the Steele dossier, and no article drew more notice than this one: “Rachel Maddow rooted for the Steele dossier to be true. Then it fell apart.”
All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the decade. Today, we’re reviewing the most over-the-top adulation of Barack Obama from the last decade. From Newsweek proclaiming his election “the Second Coming” to Chris Matthew’s non-stop thrills, check out the full post for the most ridiculous media Obamagasms from the past 10 years.
Liberal pundit Rachel Maddow could barely contain her excitement at the onset of her eponymous MSNBC show on Wednesday night, boasting “this is not a dream” after House Democrats finally voted to impeach President Trump. And then at the end of her show, she went going gaga for Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), swooning that’s been on “quite an odyssey” over the course of the impeachment inquiry.
Just two months after showering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with praise for rebuking the “child President” Trump, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell devoted another opening monologue to praising the Speaker; this time for her exchange with James Rosen. The Last Word host devoted the first ten minutes of his show Thursday to reporting on how Pelosi “crushed” Rosen after he dared to suggest that she might “hate the President.”
There’s nothing like a little hardcore abortion talk at a DNC debate to get Hollywood types riled up. After Senator Elizabeth Warren claimed that abortion was a “human right” at the fifth DNC debate, comedian Sarah Silverman applauded her.
MSNBC debate moderator Rachel Maddow on Wednesday unloaded both on the state that hosted the 2020 contenders (Georgia) and also a conservative Democratic Governor for daring to be pro-life. She repeatedly badgered Elizabeth Warren over whether there was “room” in the party for someone like John Bel Edwards. But first she led an attack on debate host Georgia, worrying:
MSNBC has tabbed a Bernie booster (Rachel Maddow) and Joe Biden fan (Andrea Mitchell) to be the lead moderators for Wednesday’s Democratic debate, so it’s a good bet the questions will be skewed from the left. It won't be the first time: In June, MSNBC hosted a two-night debate event where 69 percent of the questions to the very liberal field of candidates were from the left.
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.
