President Barack Obama was in Dallas Tuesday to speak at the memorial service to the five police officers who were killing in last Thursday’s ambush. All the networks in the “big three” sung the president’s praises. “The president clearly in the role of preacher-in-chief today talking about what a raw moment this is for the country,” stated ABC’s Senior Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas, during ABC’s special coverage.
As it seems to be a pattern for CNN guests and pundits this week, the Dallas shootings by a man claiming to be influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement has put the liberal media through a tailspin, in their efforts to disassociate the group with the violence. From CNN’s legal analyst Sunny Hostin’s pandering on The View, to longtime contributor Marc Lamont Hill complaining on CNN’s Newsroom and New Day, CNN clearly has an agenda to set on the recent shootings and it has nothing to do with facts.
As The View’s resident lawyer pundit, Sunny Hostin throws around her legal expertise a lot but never so often as when she’s blindly defending Hillary Clinton. The CNN analyst along with co-host Whoopi Goldberg, did her best to defend Clinton against Fox News’s Jedediah Bila on Monday’s morning discussion on The View. After being on vacation for a week, the panel spent the last fifteen minutes of the show discussion last week’s hearing where FBI director James Comey recommended Hillary Clinton not be indicted over her emails, despite her “extreme carelessness.”
After the House Benghazi Committee released their final report on Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the 2012 attacks in Libya that killed four Americans, the political heavyweights at The View had a strong defense for Hillary ready. On Wednesday’s show, liberal panelists Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Raven-Symone and Whoopi Goldberg complained about how unfairly the media has treated Clinton and how unjust it was to spend 7 million dollars of “taxpayer money” into Benghazi.
The View Friday morning discussed Britain voting to leave the European Union, thereby declaring its own independence. The news brought shocks of outrage from liberal media worldwide, that even the women at The View felt informed enough to weigh in on. There was no room for nuance at the table, as Joy Behar called the situation, “the whole world falling apart” and CNN’s Sunny Hostin lamented how it was going to be terrible for the U.S. financially. Behar and Hostin then complained further that the whole vote was based on racist and xenophobic Europeans. Because, of course, that seems to be the theme of the day.
The View’s Sunny Hostin on Tuesday waded into some dangerous territory as the show’s hosts discussed an attempted assassination of Donald Trump. After Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar condemned the attack, Hostin wondered if the “vile” Trump was partially to blame for a tone that leads to violence: “You are never supposed to violently try to take someone out because of their views. But with the Trump campaign and all that campaign rhetoric to incite violence— ”
“Clueless for $400.” This past week Jeopardy! aired its “Power Players” shows recorded in Washington, DC back on Saturday, April 9. Viewers were treated to some embarrassing moments for several prominent journalists, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Kate Bolduan, who were seemingly ill-informed about relatively recent events in the news. The video below shows five of the biggest flubs, focused just on current events/recent history questions.
On Friday's The View on ABC, during a discussion of trust issues surrounding presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, co-host Sunny Hostin cluelessly wondered "what makes Hillary so untrustworthy" as co-host Paula Faris asserted that both candidates are "untrustworthy." Hostin then demanded to know, "Why is she untrustworthy? How many lies has she told?" and, when co-host and FNC contributor Jedediah Bila began recalling Benghazi, Hostin deflected by demanding to know what else other than Benghazi.
It’s ironic when outspoken liberal women who moan about “women’s rights” come to the defense of men with multiple accusations of sexual crimes against women, even rape, simply because they’re Democrats. On Thursday’s The View, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar did just that, coming to the Clintons’ defense over Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusations and, along with Sunny Hostin, dismissing Broaddrick’s “credibility.”
Late Wednesday afternoon, GOP presidential nominee Ted Cruz announced former presidential candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his potential running mate. Even before Fiorina came on stage, liberal journalists and pro-abortion groups logged onto social media to mock the pair’s appearance, policies and lack of “experience in office.”
The hosts of ABC's The View on Thursday spent almost four minutes fretting over Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump suggesting Harriet Tubman be placed on the $2 bill as an alternative to replacing former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin in particular portrayed placement on the $2 bill as an insult, betraying an apparent lack of knowledge that the $2 bill that is still in circulation features no less than former President and Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson's likeness.
On February 9’s The View on ABC, the panel opened the show by discussing Beyonce’s Super bowl performance with its racially charged theme invoking both Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers. Co-host and CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin was the first one to step up and gush over the pop star’s “extremely brave” performance.
