Even though some high-profile experts claim the U.S. is not headed for a recession right now, the liberal news media continued to promote economic pessimism during the summer of 2019.
Despite 3.7 percent (near record-low) unemployment, wage gains, confident consumers and growing economy, liberal journalists obsessed over recession every single day of June and July.
In a special NBC News investigation aired Thursday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt and chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel explained how Russia aimed to “spread racial tensions in America. It comes from new research showing Russians are behind the push to spread some of the most shocking viral videos.” But the kicker? Some of those same viral videos were proliferated by NBC News themselves.
Despite President Trump’s full-throated denunciation of racism and white supremacy on Monday, NBC Nightly News was determined to place the weekend’s mass shootings at his feet. The network went to such extreme lengths for their narrative that they flew chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel all the way out to somewhere in Germany to give neo-Nazis a platform.
At a joint press conference in London on Tuesday, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May thanked President Trump for putting pressure on the NATO members who were not paying what they agreed to and getting results. But instead of the reporting on that praise during their evening newscasts, the liberal broadcast networks chose to hype anti-Trump protesters, including an effigy of him on the toilet, and acted shocked that Trump would complement his hosts.
Just seconds before President Trump’s joint press conference with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel touted left-wing protesters on the streets of London calling Trump a “fascist” and making him a “subject of ridicule.”
The USS Abraham Lincoln was speeding to the Persian Gulf, U.S. military bases in the Middle East were on high alert, then on Wednesday nonemergency staff for the U.S. Embassy in Iraq were ordered to leave because the U.S. had intelligence of an “imminent” Iranian-backed attack. But the liberal media, which often carries water for the regime, was skeptical. ABC News suggested it was “faulty” intel akin to the Iraq War. NBC News claimed it’s a “real test” of President Trump’s credibility.
After first claiming the United States was trying to “provoke” an all-out war with Iran Monday morning on MSNBC, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel brought his tinfoil hat conspiracy to NBC Nightly News later that evening. NBC kicked off the broadcast with Engel’s suspicion about U.S. intelligence claims that Iran was planning some sort of attack against troops in the region.
Appearing on MSNBC Monday morning, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel repeatedly accused the Trump administration of trying to “provoke” Iran into some sort of conflict by sending an aircraft carrier group to the region. He and anchors for the liberal cable channel portrayed the U.S. as a bully getting in Iran’s face.
It’s the most pro-life segment you’re likely to see from NBC News. It’s also the most beautiful. On Friday morning, NBC’s Today aired a story showcasing the “special”-ness of each and every individual child’s life, by telling the story of one of its own.
For months now, the Trump administration has been trying to get Turkey hand over American Christian pastor Andrew Brunson after he was arrested on what have been described as trumped-up charges linked to the failed military coup attempt in 2016. But during Monday’s NBC Nightly News, the network just wasn’t having it and was worried President Trump was the one hurting the relationship with a NATO ally.
NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel reacted during a Tuesday afternoon Special Report to President Trump’s attempt at damage control following the Helsinki summit by dubbing the remarks a “magic trick” meant to deceive the world and gives Russia “a green light” to continue its cyber-hacking and meddle in elections across the globe.
On Friday, the network morning shows devoted much of their coverage of President Trump’s visit to Britain on protesters “denouncing and mocking” him. Hosts and correspondents seemed to delight in the president receiving a “not-so-royal welcome” and being taunted by a giant balloon flying over the British capital “depicting Mr. Trump as an angry baby.”
