The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
One of the guests on MSNBC's 11th Hour last night, Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale, was introduced by host Brian Williams as "Twitter's most prolific presidential fact-checker." Unfortunately, Dale couldn't bring himself to fact-check an obviously dubious claim from Williams. Then again, we've all come to expect such assertions from Williams, most especially about his leap-tall-building adventures in journalism.
This time the subject was negotations between the Trump administration and congressional leaders over funding for a border wall along the Mexican border to avert another government shutdown with a Feb. 15 deadline looming.
In contrast to the broadcast networks, CNN, and MSNBC ignoring radical pro-abortion comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on not only Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.
On Tuesday’s 11th Hour, host Brian Williams tag-teamed with guests James Carville and Michael Steele to trash President Trump’s primetime address, but even this — um — special trio couldn’t escape two segments talking about the night’s events without absolutely lampooning the much-maligned and parodied Democratic response by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
After being arrested on felony domestic violence charges last week, there was a new chapter in the saga of Michael Avenatti’s alleged abuse late Monday night when news broke that New York actress Mareli Miniutti had filed a domestic violence restraining order against him. Both CNN and MSNBC couldn’t be bothered to mention the development on air that night.
Over the past few weeks, the broadcast networks -- and especially CNN and MSNBC -- have promoted claims by Democrats that thousands of minority voters in Georgia have been discriminated against because at least 53,000 new voter registrations were put on hold as "pending" until mistakes could be corrected. But those same networks have ignored recent revelations about why those applications were put on hold in the first place that discredit claims of racial discrimination.
Serial fibber Brian Williams told yet another whopper on Friday night from his home in MSNBC exile known as The 11th Hour with Brian Williams. So what else is new? What makes his latest historical untruth ironically special is it came as Williams along with historian Michael Beschloss were fact checking President Donald Trump for a supposed error he made during his speech at a rally in Lebanon, Ohio on Friday.
The economy is booming but did you know that these are the final days of Donald Trump's presidency? That is the absurd premise put forward on MSNBC's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on Wednesday by that master of hyperbole, Jon Meacham, the man at the helm of Newsweek as it sank like the Titanic.
In response to serial fabulist Brian Williams conjuring up images of Richard Nixon "three scotches deep in the White House in the evening doing strange things walking down the hallway," Meacham eagerly joined in with that "Final Days" imagery.
In a segment that sounded like it was written for The Onion, MSNBC host Brian Williams tried to bring something different to the media’s reporting on President Trump calling former aide Omarosa a “dog.” So he brought on Washington Post’s Philip Rucker on his show August 14, to speculate whether or not the President hated actual dogs. The two liberal journalists took Trump to task, using Google image search, to see if they could find any photographic evidence of the President with the animals. And just because it’s MSNBC, the pair ended the ridiculous segment by claiming Trump was behaving like a Nazi by using that term.
On Monday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, host Brian Williams devoted a couple of minutes to hyping the cases of two Republican publican figures who have recently been publicly excoriated by liberal family members. After noting reports of families being "torn apart" by political disputes in recent years, Williams brought up Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte coming under criticism by his son on Twitter.
Doesn’t it almost always seem like things have to be dramatic and self-centered for Brian Williams? The disgraced former NBC Nightly News anchor and serial liar has a new promo out for his weekday MSNBC show The 11th Hour that’s quite the doozy with quiet orchestral music and promises to provide the best recap of the day’s news.
In the wake of Facebook apparently discovering and shutting down Russian troll and disinformation pages, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle has turned to an authoritarian solution. On the 11th Hour with Brian Williams Wednesday night, Ruhle said, “I'm not going to feel bad for Mark Zuckerberg. This is the world he created, and maybe it's a Frankenstein. Maybe he created a monster,” of the social media site. She continued: “And while it's our gargantuan problem, Facebook has a gargantuan amount of money to address this.”
When it comes to polling, sometimes the questions reveal more than the answers. On Monday, an NBC/WSJ poll found that 71% of voters support Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. on a federal level. That should be a surprising number. But it’s not – simply because of the poll’s wording.
