During her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson, seized on a coordinated left-wing campaign to tar one of President Trump’s judicial nominees as a racist who spent his career defending “voter suppression” of minorities. To bolster that argument, she turned to former NAACP president Cornell Brooks and PBS NewsHour White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.
Shortly after President Trump’s well-documented spat with Jim Acosta at a White House press conference yesterday, several other reporters clearly sought the spotlight as they directed gotcha questions at the President, accusing him of “pitting Americans against one another” and “emboldening white nationalists.”
After Wednesday’s free-wheeling and tense White House press conference, CNN went on the offensive against President Trump, illustrating a level of self-centeredness that’s unrivaled in the media and showing petty levels of emotion on-set reacting to the President’s condemnations and tense exchanges with chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, political analyst April Ryan, and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor.
Chris Matthews was baffled Monday night that President Trump had not yet decided to abandon Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh based on the recent sexual assault allegation against him. During a segment on Hardball, the MSNBC host insisted that Kavanaugh must be guilty and that the nomination was “cooked,” concluding that the President’s refusal to rescind that nomination suggested he was “incapable of facing reality.”
During Thursday morning's MSNBC Live, host Hallie Jackson and her panel engaged in a discussion about a New York Times report describing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s plans to allow schools to use Federal funds to buy guns for their teachers and it included quite a head-scratcher as the headline indicates.
Day after day in the Trump era, one has to wonder if the left and their media allies will run out of panic buttons to push. Such was the case Tuesday night on MSNBC’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews and his A-Block panelists accused the President of being a “delusional” “strong man” than ever and akin to John Wilkes Booth agreeing to criminal questioning without having to talk about Ford’s Theater.
On Friday's MTP Daily, during a discussion of the issue of the Trump administration separating immigrant children from parents who are being prosecuted for crossing the border illegally, panel members admitted that President Barack Obama's administration also separated some illegal immigrant families as they were processed. PBS's Yamiche Alcindor even suggested that the focus on President Donald Trump is justified because his presidential campaign "was founded -- in some ways, people think -- in a racist way."
On Monday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews repeadly misrepresented reality while hosting his nightly episode of Hardball, putting his fellow panelists in the awkward position of having to correct him. Within the span of the first fifteen-minute segment, Matthews misinterpreted state audio recording laws, attorney-client privilege, and recent reporting by another journalistic outlet.
Despite largely salivating over the leaked copies of James Comey’s book to news outlets, there was plenty of consternation during the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, thanks to host Chris Matthews and other guests taking issue with Comey’s “cheap stuff” going after the President’s hand size, height, and skin color.
Viewers may have temporarily forgotten they were watching MSNBC Thursday afternoon when 1:00 p.m. ET hour anchor Craig Melvin and his political panel hammered former Vice President Joe Biden for threatening President Trump with physical violence and even dismissed the “frustrated” and “bitter” Democrat for considering a 2020 presidential run.
Since the release of the bombshell House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged misconduct by the FBI and the DOJ to obtain warrants through a FISA court, the liberal media have been focused on combating President Trump and the GOP for releasing the memo instead of the contents within it. A clear demonstration of this occurred during NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday where moderator Chuck Todd was receptive to attacks against the memo but aggressively pushed back against supporters.
The New York Times is still trying to spin the congressional sex scandals in the Democrats’ direction, as demonstrated in three stories Friday virtually bragging that their stand on Franken will put them on the “unassailable” “high ground” for Campaign 2018. The paper frantically spun for the party of Bill Clinton on a day when a presidential hopeful for 2020 was resigning in disgrace: "Democrats appear determined to grab the moral high ground in an environment in which they hope sexual harassment becomes a wedge issue in the 2018 midterm elections – even if it costs them popular colleagues and political icons."
