CNN media reporter Brian Stelter was up in arms during Sunday’s Reliable Sources as he ranted about how the release of Nunes memo was a win for Fox News, more specifically Sean Hannity, and all the people in conservative media trying to create what he called an “alternative reality.”
On Thursday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann took Sean Hannity’s statement that “the people of Alabama” “need to know the truth” concerning the Roy Moore accusations as evidence that Fox News supports people who “prey in a sexual manner on teenage girls.”
"Let There Be Light" is a fabulous movie that has taken the box office by storm and by surprise, opening in a modest 373 theaters and exploding to more than 650 in just its second week.
New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters on Saturday joined the odd new trend in the mainstream press of attacking Fox News for actually covering political stories besides Donald Trump -- especially those involving Hillary Clinton’s and Russia. Fox and other right-leaning outlets were also mocked for not obsessing as much as the rest of the press on President Trump’s Russia controversies in “As Russia Inquiry Widens, an Alternative Narrative Emerges on the Right.”Another Times article accuses the network of “pushing its own version of reality,” as if that’s not what the Times does every day. It’s apparently easier to write criticism of other media outlets than to actually covering scandals involving Hillary Clinton and Russia.
I am not nearly so coldhearted and unsympathetic toward the mainstream media as some of my conservative friends, such as Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Chris Plante and Ann Coulter. In fact, my heart goes out to them. As evidence of the same, if I had President Donald Trump's ear, I'd urge him to declare this coming Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, a day of remembrance and order that flags be flown at half-staff on all federal buildings.
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota repeatedly fretted over President Donald Trump attacking Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the 1990 immigration law that helped Uzbekistan-born terrorist Sayfullo Saipov to get into the United States.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far-left host Bill Maher lashed out at Fox News and wrongly claimed that it had ignored Republican Senator Jeff Flake's speech attacking President Donald Trump. Although panel member Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast did jump in to inform Maher that Flake's speech was covered live, both she and liberal CNN commentator Van Jones claimed that "they didn't talk about it" afterwards. In fact, a Nexis search finds that evening FNC hosts Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, and Brian Kilmead all led with Flake's speech, while Sean Hannity also did a report on the story.
The undercover FBI informant who has detailed evidence in the Clinton/Uranium/Russia scandal and who was gagged by the Obama administration, is now allowed to testify before Congress. This crucial development in the case comes on the heels of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley calling for a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal. But you wouldn’t know any of these facts if you got your news from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks.
New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday. In fact, the network evening shows have only spent only 3 minutes and 1 second on the Clinton Foundation scandal in more than two years.
Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance this past week, returning to Fox for a sit-down with Sean Hannity to kick-off the latter’s return to his starring 9pm hour. Rush did not disappoint. While he said all kinds of things that doubtless resonated with the Fox audience, in terms of the media, he zeroed in on exactly the complaint of so many.
Most people in today’s “mainstream media” almost never admit they have a liberal bias when covering the news, but Jake Tapper -- host of The Lead, a weekday program on the Cable News Network -- did just that during an interview with Andy Greene of the Rolling Stone magazine that was posted on Tuesday, August 15.
It’s certainly no surprise that MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough and Sean Hannity, host of his eponymous weeknight show on the Fox News Channel, have been feuding over President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in general.
