At Monday’s coronavirus press conference, President Trump sparred with a female reporter from the Hong Kong-based news outlet, Phoenix TV. Following her question that portrayed China as heroes coming to the aid of the United States, the President pressed her on who she worked for and whether they were in league with the communist regime. This drew outcry from American reporters such as PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor and CNN national security correspondent Vivian Salama.
White House correspondent Annie Karni isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic stop her from accusing the president of sexism and racism for daring to criticize women during the crisis (news flash: Trump criticizes everyone), under a headline harkening back to the Trump-Clinton content: “‘Nasty Woman’ Theme Returns Fully to the Fore.” The lead sentence to Karni's story on Tuesday focused on the truly important issue in these days of crisis: "As he confronts a pandemic, President Trump’s attention has also been directed at a more familiar foe: those he feels are challenging him, and particularly women."
The enormous coronavirus “stimulus package” was festooned with goodies for key Democratic constituency groups, including $75 million in “emergency” funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which offers grants to PBS and NPR stations. That’s on top of the half-billion the Congress already authorized for the year. They call it “public” broadcasting, but it’s niche broadcasting by liberals, for liberals.
On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rushed to defend PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor’s hostile questioning of President Trump during Sunday evening’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing. Mitchell condemned the President’s “unsettling” push-back against the liberal reporter and hailed Alcindor as “dignified and persistent.”
Basking in another contentious White House press briefing, PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor on Sunday night told MSNBC’s Ali Velshi that covering Donald Trump is a “team sport” for the press and that journalists must “have each other’s back” in opposition to the President. Much of the interview was spent lamenting that Alcindor only initially got one question out before a CNN journalist used his question to allow her to ask another. Speaking of Jeremy Diamond, she described the team dynamic as journalists vs. Trump:
The White House Coronavirus Task Force was back Sunday with a briefing and President Trump tussled with multiple reporters, most notably another throwdown with PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor. Alcindor asked about his comments to Sean Hannity about New York’s ventilator requests, but the President wasn’t having it. Instead, he told her to “be nice,” “don’t be threatening,” and reminded her that, despite how some in the liberal media behave, “we’re all on the same team” in hoping to defeat the virus.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, ex-Republican Kurt Bardella claims that because Pres. Trump uses the term "Chinese virus," Asians "can't go on the subway without being attacked. They can't go to school without being attacked."
For yet another day, the American people tuning in Friday into the White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing saw another embarrassing display of self-centeredness by groaning journalists about how President Donald Trump doesn’t like them. Along with the now-infamous exchange with NBC’s Peter Alexander, Friday’s egotists included CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, the Associated Press’s Jill Colvin, and taxpayer-funded reporter Yamiche Alcindor from PBS.
During Wednesday’s coronavirus press conference at the White House, ABC’s Cecilia Vega and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor worked together to claim that President Trump’s use of the term “Chinese virus” was “racist” and “puts Asian Americans at risk.” Alcindor even touted rumors of an unknown administration official using an offensive term to describe the disease.
During a break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, PBS NewsHour correspondent, MSNBC political analyst, and upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential debate co-moderator Yamiche Alcindor bolstered her role a spin agent for the far-left when she explained away far-left Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan’s supposed quip involving President Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron (which she apologized for a few hours later).
So much for objectivity: For the past several weeks, anxious journalists have coached Democratic politicians from the sidelines with unsolicited advice on how best to convince the majority of Americans to support impeaching President Trump.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC repeatedly touted that the first hour of Wednesday’s public impeachment hearing “will be entirely Adam Schiff” and designed to sell the case against President Trump early “before Republicans can speak.”
