MSNBC's Morning Joe had a rare moment of journalistic integrity on Thursday morning when they took Democrats to task for refusing to tell Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax to resign after he was accused of sexual assault.
On Sunday’s Kasie DC, the MSNBC panelists did their best to have it both ways when it came to the liberal media-fueled controversy involving the Covington High School students. Over the course of their discussion, they insisted that the story symbolized the need to be careful when jumping to conclusions while plowing ahead by placing the students alongside neo-Nazis, the KKK, and segregationist cops.
Between Saturday morning and Sunday night, CNN and MSNBC spent 53 minutes and 20 seconds on the fallout from Friday's confrontation between Covington High School students in Washington for the March for Life, a Native American veteran named Nathan Phillips, and the Black Israelites. 29 of those minutes came before anyone realized that perhaps things weren’t as they wanted it to appear. Of course, the liberal media have refused to take responsibility and issue retractions.
Seeing as how he had been the bane of the liberal media’s existence for the last 24 hours plus as he’s supposedly the real president, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was in an ebullient mood for his Friday show. He said that he was supposedly “the new villain in Washington D.C.” ahead of a possible government shutdown that was portrayed as if the world was “end[ing] even before climate change kills us all.”
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts and former Trump enthusiasts dedicated just over five minutes more during their first show after a Washington Post scoop about Ivanka Trump using a private e-mail address to conduct official government business than they did on March 3, 2015 for the first show since The New York Times blew the whistle on Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail address and server.
During Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the panel expressed outrage at President Trump calling porn star Stormy Daniels "horseface" and so the outrage culminated in a rant by co-host Mika Brzezinski against Trump, questioning his fitness for office and urged cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment.
Joining in the overwrought media reaction to the White House barring a CNN reporter from a Rose Garden event on Wednesday, on Thursday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, Daily Beast Politics Editor Sam Stein urged the press corps to join together in a “collective pact” to “punish” the Trump administration.
For those who follow this author on Twitter, you’ll find that I’m not a fan of Turning Point USA. That said, the liberal media’s fake news machine reared its head on Tuesday when numerous outlets falsely claimed Attorney General Jeff Sessions chanted the infamous “lock her up” chant about Hillary Clinton when prompted by students at their high school conference.
With a highly publicized electoral race on the line, the panelists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe dropped their facade of objectivity on Tuesday and spent the morning stumping for Pennsylvania special election Democratic candidate Conor Lamb.
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the panel breathed a collective sigh of relief over the news that during yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rebuffed the notion that he would launch a special prosecutor’s investigation against the Clintons for their alleged corrupt conduct related to the Russian acquisition of Uranium One. The liberal pundits proceeded to dismiss the story as a “dumb conspiracy theory” that has “been debunked” “many times.”
Well, it's a good thing we have experienced journalists in charge of presenting the news at sites like the Daily Beast making sure they protect the privacy of politicians under attack, particularly Republican and conservative politicians. ... Oh, wait a minute. Sam Stein, who became that site's political editor after many years at the Huffington Post, published Rand Paul's home address on Monday.
Monday’s broadcast of Morning Joe was entirely taken up by coverage of the previous night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed more than fifty and wounded hundreds more. However, even with a dearth of information about the killer and his weapons, only knowing for sure that they were capable of fully automatic fire, MSNBC still found time to speculate that a lack of gun control was at least partly responsible for the carnage.
