On Thursday’s Morning Joe, the show’s liberal pundits continued their smear campaign targeting congressional lawmakers and journalists who have been trying to reveal the full extent of political bias within the FBI that may have adversely affected its investigations of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Working with the knowledge that there is now an official congressional investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s conduct last year, co-host Joe Scarborough and his guest panelists went into overdrive to paint any questioning of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigative team’s professionalism as an illegitimate, desperate, and futile attempt to save Trump’s presidency. Former veteran NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw had some especially harsh words for Fox News’s recent coverage of FBI corruption, claiming that the network “is on a jihad right now” against Mueller and his agents.
Veteran liberal journalists Tom Brokaw and Andrea Mitchell on Thursday lamented the “rush to judgment” that forced Al Franken from the Senate. Despite the fact that eight women have now accused the Democrat of inappropriate or unwanted touching, Tom Brokaw mourned, “... There was on the part of the Democratic Party a determination and kind of a rush, if you will, to have the Senator resign so they didn't have the burden of trying to defend him .”
The portion of former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile’s book exposing ethically questionable behavior by the Clinton campaign surprisingly got a lot of play on the network Sunday morning shows. But during NBC’s Meet the Press, former anchor Tom Brokaw was not pleased with Brazile for shedding light on how the Clinton campaign bought the DNC and added it to their campaign arsenal.
In an interview with Arizona Senator John McCain for Thursday’s NBC Today, Senior Correspondent Tom Brokaw invited the Republican lawmaker to attack President Trump and painted the liberal media as the victim: “In the course of your political career, especially as a presidential candidate – as I learned first hand – you had some mixed relations with the press. The President has no use for the press, he has turned the country against us, in many ways.”
In a report for Friday’s NBC Today, special correspondent Tom Brokaw bemoaned the “turmoil” and “chaos” in Washington following Republican Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker blasting President Trump. The former Nightly News anchor seized the chance to compare the current contentiousness to the Monica Lewinsky, Iran-Contra, and Watergate scandals that threatened past presidencies.
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting massacre, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks wasted little time in exploiting the tragedy to advance their anti-gun rights agenda. In just six days (October 2 through October 8) of coverage, the networks filled their evening and morning show programs with statements favoring gun control over gun rights by a ratio of roughly 5 to 1.
The media’s inevitable exploitation of the Las Vegas shooting to rip up the Second Amendment was sickeningly swift. Not even 24 hours passed before journalists had began badgering politicians for more gun control and even worse, disgustingly blaming gun owners for the bloody attack. One CBS employee actually said she wasn’t “even sympathetic” because “country music fans often are Republican voters.” On NBC, former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw used the Today show to energize the anti-gun voters: “I think that we have to step up, all of us, and speak up” against the NRA. The following is just a sample of the most exploitative efforts, so far, by the liberal press and Hollywood to use the Las Vegas tragedy to advance their attack on Second Amendment rights:
After repeatedly demanding a “national dialogue” about gun control throughout NBC’s special coverage of the Las Vegas shooting on Monday, on Tuesday, the former Nightly News anchor abandoned any pretense of being a journalist as he slammed gun owners and urged liberal viewers to politically “organize” against the National Rifle Association.
Appearing on Monday’s Today, former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw predictably used the tragic shooting in Las Vegas as an excuse to push the gun control agenda even as the police were still in the early stages of the investigation. “Well, I think this is time for a national dialogue that we can have in a calm and reasoned way in which the country can figure out how come we have so many mass shootings in this country,” the special correspondent proclaimed.
Journalists are falling over themselves to praise NFL players taking a knee in protest during the National Anthem, but this isn’t the first time members of the liberal media have shown disrespect towards a symbol of national unity. Even as this country was recovering from the wounds of 9/11 some leftists in the press were agonizing over the proliferation of flag-waving. The following are some of the most obnoxious examples, via the MRC’s archive, of liberal journalists either bashing or being embarrassed by proud support of patriotic symbols like the American Flag, National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, former NBC anchorman Tom Brokaw commented on President Trump’s DACA decision by stating that the GOP has been giving people with Hispanic surnames the back of their hand and “declaring war on Hispanics in this country.”
Many elected Republican officials including the President have repeatedly condemned the white supremacists and Neo-Nazis that turned up in Charlottesville, VA. But that hasn’t stopped the liberal media from tagging the whole party and conservative movement as unrepentant racists. The following is a collection of the most egregious attacks on Republicans (so far) in the week following the Charlottesville tragedy.
