Former New York Times editorial board member Adam Cohen, who once served as lawyer for the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, reviewed Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus’s book on the Brett Kavanaugh nomination. (The book’s title gives the slant away: “Supreme Ambition -- Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover.”) Cohen’s review unloaded a cheap shot in the text box: “‘If you had asked me who was the biggest drinker in our class I would have said Brett,” one classmate said.” Anonymous hearsay? Now there’s some hard evidence for you. Down the memory hole: Any mention of the paper’s own botched, biased Kavanaugh investigation.
Liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus bashed the right as having trouble "accepting the facts,” on Morning Joe Tuesday. She was on MSNBC plugging her new anti-Kavanaugh book “Supreme Ambition,” which compares last year’s Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings to the present day impeachment hearings. In it, Marcus argues that Republicans were unwilling to believe “the evidence” against Kavanaugh, just as they’re unwilling to believe the evidence for impeachment.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Thursday, Washington Post deputy editorial page editor and columnist Ruth Marcus warned that President Trump’s criticism of the anonymous whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry could inspire some of Trump’s “deranged” Twitter followers to “use violence” if the unknown government official’s identity was ever revealed.
A Wednesday panel discussion on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports tried to answer the question of whether a woman can get elected president. The subject began as a result of an article written by MSNBC contributor Lisa Lerer at The New York Times and the Vogue photo shoot that included the all of the Democratic women running for President with the exception of Marianne Williamson.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, Washington Post Deputy Editorial Page Editor Ruth Marcus applauded her paper’s decision to spend money on an expensive Super Bowl ad. She even claimed that the commercial wasn’t actually meant to promote the Post, despite the logo being shown at the end of Sunday night’s pricey spot.
During a discussion about the ongoing racial scandal swirling around Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell actually fretted that calls for his resignation ran the “risk of appearing too politically correct” and may even create “blowback” against Democrats.
The liberal media obsession with Rush Limbaugh dragged on into Wednesday’s Hardball in which the panelists questioned whether Vice President Mike Pence even has a “soul” for “kissing up” to Limbaugh earlier in the day and whether Trump and Limbaugh are the monkey and organ grinder or vice versa. Host Chris Matthews brought up Limbaugh in light of the government shutdown and the President standing firm on his promise of securing the southern border, leading to a government shutdown as Democrats have refused to support this proposal.
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, we were "treated" to "bipartisan" agreement among the pundits that the Ocasio-Cortez Class of Democrats is a centrist, or non-ideological bunch. The headline was "David Brooks and Ruth Marcus on a ‘moderate’ new congressional class." Pseudo-conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks and liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus were energetically agreed in NewsHour style that these were moderate Democrats who would do well to vote for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They "need" her discipline in tacking to the....center.
With the liberal media unable to vocalize on camera their spin while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
There is nothing Judge Brett Kavanaugh can do to clear his name in the eyes of the ravenous liberal media. Even after his interview on Fox News in which he defended himself and his reputation from the dubious allegations, it drew the ire of those who wanted his nomination to fail. During Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, host Chuck Todd slapped the Supreme Court nominee with a “partisan warrior” label for the effort.
As soon as the second quarter GDP growth of 4.1 percent became public, the media did their best to downplay the good news and refrain from giving President Trump and his policies credit for the strong economy, instead accusing him of using the news to “distract” from the Russia investigation. Not surprisingly, the dismissal of the President’s role in the good economy began before the report even came out.
Well, folks, it looks like MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews is going to need another panic button after Thursday’s show. All show, Matthews touted as if it were fact that President Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in the Mueller probe and that, based on his tweets and the Comey firing, he could be removed from office.
