MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle devoted the end of their 1pm EST hour Friday to hyping a climate change alarmist book, The Uninhabitable Earth, by New York magazine’s David Wallace Wells. As the hosts complained about Americans who weren’t on board with the climate change agenda, Wells assured them that “deniers” were as easy to dismiss as kooky people who believed aliens had invaded Earth.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle hosted an hourlong documentary mourning the "foiled" the Equal Rights Amendment on Sunday night, and also wrote an op-ed for the Cosmopolitan website to promote her show titled "How Women Were Tricked Into Being Afraid of the Equal Rights Amendment." Apparently, women are the weaker sex, so easily tricked by the right-wingers.
In the aftermath of the House of Representatives passing two Democratic-supported gun control bills that expand background check requirements to private purchases and transfers, and lengthens the allowed background check period, CNN and MSNBC have been celebrating by having liberal guests come on their shows and going along with their gun control myths without any conservative guests to counter them.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show Friday morning, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle grew impatient waiting for failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke to decide whether or not he was jumping into the 2020 presidential race. She fondly recalled him promising Oprah Winfrey on February 5 that he would make up his mind by the end of the month and assured her guests that “People would get on the Beto bus.”
On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle griped about the difficulty of passing new gun laws as she and Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack pined for more gun control. Ironically, on the same day's New Day show, CNN's John Avlon admitted that there are problems with the gun laws that already exist being properly enforced.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle Friday morning, analyst Jason Johnson, Politics Editor for The Root, blasted the Trump administration for refusing to allow ISIS terrorist Hoda Muthana from returning to the U.S. after she left to join the violent death cult. The left-wing contributor even argued it was “anti-American” to deny her re-entry to the nation she declared war against.
One word that is not often used to describe the mainstream media these days is “objective.” This concept indicates that a reporter or journalist should not have any hidden connections with people or products being discussed. That philosophy took a major hit on Thursday, when NBC News correspondent Stephanie Ruhle was accused of promoting Under Armour shoes without letting viewers know she has “close ties” with the sports apparel company’s CEO, Kevin Plank.
After news broke Thursday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee decided that the first primary debate of the 2020 presidential race would be held in June and hosted by NBC News, giddy MSNBC hosts went on air to express their excitement for the event. Given the softball treatment the network has routinely given Democratic candidates, DNC Chair Tom Perez even appeared on the liberal cable channel to express his enthusiasm.
The stingy $1.375 billion allocated towards a border barrier in Monday night’s budget deal may mean it is inevitable that President Trump will soon declare a national emergency in order to ensure construction of a wall. If this happens, expect CNN and MSNBC hosts to howl about the nameless “experts” who’ve supposedly deemed the project “an ineffective waste of money” designed to solve a “manufactured crisis” — because that’s exactly what they did during the 35-day government shutdown.
During a discussion on the various scandals engulfing Virginia Democrat leaders this week on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, legal analyst Maya Wiley dismissed the scandals as “political” while ludicrously arguing that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh didn’t receive as much scrutiny as these Democrat men were facing.
Empire star Jesse Smollett was brutally attacked early Tuesday morning in Chicago in what police have suggested could be deemed a hate crime due to Smollett being gay with the assailants allegedly hurling homophobic and racist slurs. However, two claims that has not yet been substantiated were that the alleged perpetrators either wore Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats or shouted “this is MAGA country” to Smollett as he was beaten, doused in bleach, and had a noose tied around his neck. Despite that, the 1:00 p.m. Eastern edition of MSNBC Live mentioned it anyway.
Before special counsel Robert Mueller rained all over the media’s parade, liberal journalists spent much of Friday gleefully touting a now-discredited Buzzfeed story alleging how: “President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.” Here’s a video re-cap of how the media let their wishful thinking get the better of them on Friday.
