While MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell was away from her Andrea Mitchell Reports show on Thursday, there was still plenty of liberal bias as substitute host Chris Jansing moderated a segment with New York Times political reporter Nick Confessore and liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus to discuss the Republican tax cut plan.
While discussing the Russia investigation on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Tuesday, even liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus had to acknowledge that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team had a definite “Democratic tilt.” The admission came in the wake of an FBI agent being removed from the probe due to anti-Trump bias.
Clearly inspired by veteran NBC journalist Tom Brokaw’s sermon warning of the dangers of “rushing to judgement” on the over half-dozen different charges of sexual harassment against Democratic Senator Al Franken, both Andrea Mitchell and Washington Post Deputy Editorial Page Editor Ruth Marcus rode to the rescue to back him up.
While the panelists on Thursday’s Hardball were pondering the icy relationship between President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, frequent guest and Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus suggested that it’s because Trump is.....sexist!
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, Washington Post editorial page deputy editor Ruth Marcus repeated the misleading claim that, because former Republican Rep. Tom Price has a history of winning landslide victories, the 6th Congressional District of Georgia should still be a solidly Republican seat. The liberal Post columnist admitted President Donald Trump barely won the district as she began her prediction: "I think if Republicans can't keep this seat, they're really in trouble in the Trump years, and here's why: Yes, Trump won it by a point, but Tom Price won it by multiple, you know, double digits repeatedly."
Well now. The press has been raking President-Elect Donald Trump over the coals for proposing "consequences" for burning the American flag.
It's especially rich to see leftists like Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post invoke the name of the otherwise completely despised late Antonin Scalia, who was considered the tie-breaking Supreme Court Justice in the 1989 case when the Court ruled that flag-burning is "symbolic speech" protected by the First Amendment. Many in the press apparently believe that no one except Donald Trump has been dumb enough to support punishments for flag-burning since then, and ... oh, wait. Someone has — and she's a Democrat, and she just ran for President and lost.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made his feelings clear on Tuesday night about the latest revelations in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal as he expressed his hopes that they just turn out to be pleas by Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner or even Hillary Clinton to “remember to pick up bread on the way home.”
Viewers of Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC could witness the recurring elephant in the room with regard to the Clintons that journalists repeatedly try to tamp down, in the form of Hillary Clinton's reported history of threatening and trying to discredit women who have made sexual assault accusations against her husband.
Liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus tried to minimize the issue to Hillary Clinton being the victim of her husband simply committing adultery, while host Chuck Todd, when forced to confront the issue by guest Rudy Giuliani, actually rushed to Hillary's defense and claimed that "those allegations have not been true."
On MSNBC’s The Place for Politics Thursday afternoon, anchor Andrea Mitchell repeatedly invited her Democrat guests to bash the Republican National Convention for it’s supposed ugly “tone” and “vitriol” towards Hillary Clinton. In two separate interviews on the show, Mitchell tried to paint this RNC convention as somehow worse in attacking the opposing candidate than other conventions.
Nearly two days after Donald Trump revoked press credentials of The Washington Post for his campaign events, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports was still wallowing over it on Wednesday afternoon as the eponymous host and her panel slammed the idea that a candidate would attack the liberal media as both “petulant and childish” plus bashed the Reagan administration’s press record.
The panel on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball had plenty to say about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal in light of the State Department Inspector General (IG) report with Sanders supporter/former Democratic State Senator Nina Turner (Ohio) rebuking Clinton for essentially “jump[ing] off the bridge” with her predecessors into private e-mail even though she shouldn’t have.
The Washington Post op-ed page today has dueling columns on the two presumptive nominees being relentless liars. Kathleen Parker focused on Hillary Clinton, while Ruth Marcus targeted Trump. Parker is winning Wednesday on their website's "Most Read" meter.
Parker notes readers have sent her a 13-minute YouTube video titled "Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes." Let's hope they don't get put in handcuffs like the YouTube filmmaker blamed for the Benghazi terrorist attack.
