During MSNBC’s Friday night post-debate coverage, Hardball host Chris Matthews behaved like a man possessed, hellbent on informing all about the deadly dangers posed by communism and socialism, how concerns during the Cold War were real, and Bernie Sanders might not be looking to just remake America into a socialist country a la Denmark.
Continuing her penchant for drawing media accolades, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) was the candidate of discussion on MSNBC after Friday night’s latest 2020 Democratic debate. Mostly led by Hardball host Chris Matthews, Klobuchar was praised as “wonderful,” showing “audacity, spontaneity,” and behaving presidential who’s been “amazing” for having lasted longer than higher “voltage” senators like Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and Kamala Harris (D-CA).
Conservative Twitter is hammering Elizabeth Warren for implying in an MSNBC interview on Thursday night that she blames the racism throughout American history (in part) for minority staffers quitting her campaign in Nevada. MSNBC host Chris Hayes set up the issue in the gentlest, most helpful way possible (well, the most helpful besides burying the story). When she uncorked her blame-history spin, Hayes just moved on to asking about Michael Bloomberg.
In a Sunday report about how MSNBC failed in their duty to report facts to their viewers in the midst of Iran’s missile attack on U.S. bases in Iraq last week, Fox News Channel media reporter and host of MediaBuzz, Howard Kurtz unloaded on the liberal cable news outlet for pushing Iran’s state-media propaganda and scaring the families of service members.
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Al Sharpton repeated a study highlighted last March by the Washington Post that made the claim that during the 2016 presidential race, there was an increase in hate crimes in counties that held Donald Trump rallies, even though the findings were discredited as misleading last September by another study published by Reason magazine. MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian also cited the flawed study again on last Thursday's First Look show.
As yesterday’s impeachment hearings concluded late Tuesday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes was ready to fret over the state of democracy, with his left-wing guests, New York Times’ frenzied opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg and two Democratic operatives who worked for the Clinton and Obama administrations.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted the final segment of Monday’s All In to weighing in on the retirement of longtime Republican Congressman Peter King. In addition to portraying, Hayes King’s retirement as part of a large “red exodus” among House Republicans, Hayes attempted to characterize the retiring lawmaker as an “anti-Muslim” bigot.
Weighing in on the resignation of Democratic California Congresswoman Katie Hill Monday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes complained that her departure from Congress is proof that “the bad guys won here.” Hayes also accused The Daily Mail and Red State, two publications that published intimate photos of Hill, of committing a crime.
In the past couple of weeks, New York Times reporters Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis have made TV appearances to promote their book Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration. In appearances on CNN and MSNBC, anchors have underlined revelations that President Trump suggested the extreme step of government agents shooting immigrants in the legs -- often leaving out the notion that it would be in response to immigrants throwing large rocks...and of course, often leaving out the word "illegal" to characterize the immigrants.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes subjected himself to withering conservative ridicule on Friday night when he lamely attempted to defend Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to the Electoral College, accusing Team Trump of sending out an "insane" e-mail "basically accusing AOC, because she was advocating for majority rule, of attempting a coup to disenfranchise Republican conservatives." In front of a live audience, Hayes actually said "the weirdest thing about the Electoral College is the fact that if it wasn't specifically in the Constitution for the presidency, it would be unconstitutional."
August 28, 2014 might as well be known in liberal America as Tan Suit Day, that day where former President Obama wore a tan suit. On the five year anniversary of Tan Suit Day, liberal journalists and commentators on CNN and MSNBC took to the airwaves to reminisce about that day, which they claimed -- in contradiction of the facts -- that this was somehow "the biggest scandal of the entire Obama presidency."
Thursday night’s All In made sure to highlight the blatant bias against anyone who supports Trump and his campaign. Host Chris Hayes and guests tore apart Stephen Ross, the owner of Equinox, for Friday’s Trump fundraiser which has received a torrent criticism from the media and SoulCyclists everywhere.
