A refreshing dose of honesty coming from the mouth of a mainstream news anchor is an anomalous occurance to put it lightly. ABC’s Amy Robach provided just that when she was caught on camera discussing the network’s role in suppressing a story about Jeffrey Epstein Story. Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich appeared on Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the case in more detail and the shameful cover-up.
In a Monday appearance on the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, former Army captain and the author of Stand Down, James Hasson ripped the liberal media for their bizarre anti-Trump spin after ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was eliminated in a raid on his compound in northern Syria. He chalked it up to them being unable to get past their mentality that “what is good for Donald Trump is bad, and what is bad for Donald Trump is good.”
Given the blatant liberal bias in “journalism” today, there is little room to wonder why public confidence in the media has declined sharply in recent years. Former newspaper publisher, Walter Hussman, made an appearance on Thursday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight in an attempt to uncover what went awry in modern press.
Before focusing on liberal media bias and their disdain for those in flyover country and not within their bubbles, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson and former FNC host Megyn Kelly dove Wednesday night into the ongoing train wreck that is Kelly’s other former employer (NBC News) with their alleged coverups of sexual misconduct.
In an interview spanning the last 30 minutes of Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Megyn Kelly returned to television for the first time since NBC News cut ties with her and, appearing on her old home Fox News, Kelly lambasted the liberal media in the second half of the interview for their rampant, anti-Trump bias with a “hyperfocus on impeachment.” Carlson pivoted to “the state of journalism today” from NBC’s horrid state of affairs over their attempted squashing of Ronan Farrow’s 2017 bombshell on Harvey Weinstein and the Matt Lauer sexual misconduct scandal.
On Wednesday night, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson exposed media hypocrisy when it comes to whistleblowers that advance their causes while ignoring or undermining those that do not accomplish it. After noting that “CNN, Democrats, and the rest of Washington” agree that “the Ukraine whistleblower is a hero...doing a vital service this country,” Carlson pointed out that “we have whistleblowers here (in Washington) and they’re almost always ignored and mistreated by the people in power. All the cool kids look down on real whistleblowers.
After noting that the media have been pushing for President Trump’s impeachment “for about three years now for just about any reason at all,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson brought in radio host Chris Plante to weigh in on the media hysteria surrounding the latest push for impeachment. In addition to describing the media’s role as “faithfully and dutifully carrying out the mission of the Democratic Party,” Plante slammed the media for failing to express any interest whatsoever in potential wrongdoing on behalf of former Vice President Joe Biden.
The New York Times unleashed a farrago of fear-mongering opinions over the weekend, targeting the Republican Party as dirty, dangerously dogmatic, and downright evil. Columnist Farhad Manjoo produced another example of his recent free-floating fear of the Republican Party in his thought experiment: “Tucker Carlson 2024.” The text box: “I imagined a president worse than Trump. Welcome to my nightmare.” The graphic showed host the popular Fox News host Carlson as a wounded cyborg with his metal frame showing from under his skin camouflage. Contributor Annalee Newitz profiled notorious moralist Anthony Comstock to compare him to modern-day social conservatives.
During a monologue on the blackface controversy surrounding Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out CNN host Don Lemon’s double standards when it comes to accepting apologies. While Lemon seemed unwilling to accept former NBC anchor Megyn Kelly’s apology for merely suggesting that there was nothing wrong with wearing blackface in Halloween costumes, Lemon all too happily accepted Trudeau’s apology for actually wearing blackface.
In the aftermath of The New York Times’ salacious hit piece accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, it came to light that the newspaper intentionally omitted key exculpatory facts. Looking at how The Times handled the publishing of this story, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume shredded the liberal rag for running with something unfit to print, even invoking the gravestone of a former Times editor.
Over the past several days, in contrast with the other networks, Fox News Channel has been giving attention to one of the Parkland parents who is pro-gun and blames President Barack Obama and other Democrats for school policies making it easier for Nikolas Cruz to murder his daughter, Meadow, and 16 other students at Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Andrew Pollack has appeared on a number of Fox News shows to promote his new book, Why Meadow Died, which gives the results of his own investigative efforts into the school's history of covering up Cruz's severe behavioral problems that should have already landed him with a criminal record, making it harder for him to purchase his murder weapon.
On the Fox News Channel Thursday night, primetime host Tucker Carlson and The Hill’s Joe Concha were turned loose to ridicule MSNBC and Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell, invoking a few of his worst moments alongside his fake news story that claimed President Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans were co-signed alongside Russian oligarchs. They noted that the faux macho man was a case study in how, when it comes to Comcast’s news properties, accountability is non-existent where falsehoods and ugly rhetoric are welcomed.
