With the liberal media unable to vocalize on camera their spin while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Even before accuser Christine Blasey Ford finished testifying on Thursday in Washington, D.C., about sexual assault charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a reporter with the Associated Press found a way to kill the time while waiting for something significant to happen. Reporter Calvin Woodward wrote an article asking AP readers: “Will the Kavanaugh-Ford Hearing Be a Where-Were-You Moment?”
Remember when liberals in the media disdained everything about the Catholic Church? Simpler times. Then Pope Francis came along and muddied things. He talks about climate change, castigates capitalism and plays verbal footsie with lefty Catholic hobby-horse issues like divorce and gay acceptance. This Francis guy, they think, might be one of us.
According to many in the media, Kavanaugh typed in a 15-year-old e-mail that American abortion law wasn’t “settled law.” They’re wrong. On Sept. 6, The New York Times published a 2003 e-mail that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sent during his time at the George W. Bush White House. Kavanaugh wrote he wasn’t certain “all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land.” But many media headlines translated that to mean Kavanaugh himself wasn’t certain Roe was the settled law of the land.
The Associated Press and the New York Times both tried to spin a Catholic archbishop's recent exposé about the Church's sex abuse scandal as an ideological attack on Pope Francis from the right. AP's Nicole Winfield touted how Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano turned to "ultra-conservative media that have been highly critical of Francis' mercy-over-morals papacy." The Times write-up highlighted how "some conservative American bishops swiftly came to Archbishop Viganò’s defense."
As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
CNN’s Twitter account used an old liberal standby, “seize,” to denigrate Trump’s (factual) statement about the Tuesday morning terror attack in London: "President Donald Trump seizes on what he calls a 'terrorist attack' in London, even though the incident is still in the early stages of investigation." CNN's tweet linked to Jennfier Hansler’s equally silly story. Never mind that both the Associated Press and London's mayor had tweeted out similar statements earlier.
Terry Mattingly at Get Religion was a little stunned at coverage of the latest additions to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at how they seemed allergic to any mention of religious content -- and there was a lot of religious content.
California is burning. Multiple wildfires are claiming lives and property and the smoke is so bad, even Yosemite had to be evacuated. News outlets should be reporting all the factors that contributed to the terrible fires and not exploit tragedy to score political points. Instead, the liberal media have been latching onto the fires as evidence of the threat of climate change and bashing the Trump administration every chance they get.
The Associated Press is REALLY worried about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The AP posted an article on Tuesday alerting that a “hard-right” Court might come back to haunt the GOP. On Monday, the news outlet suggested that “devout Catholic” judges like Kavanaugh might have trouble “upholding the law as written” in light of the Pope’s new decree on the death penalty.
With the trial of Paul Manafort -- one of the campaign heads for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign -- set to begin Tuesday, several people in the "mainstream media" are hoping to learn some tiny but significant fact that could lead to the impeachment of the Republican occupant of the White House. Unfortunately for those in the press with dreams of taking down Trump, the facts in the trial will overwhelmingly focus on Manafort’s lavish lifestyle instead of any hints of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.
As NFL teams are gathering for preseason camp, Associated Press sports writer Paul Newberry suggests the league's social justice warriors play a huge Trump card if free agents Colin Kaepernick (center in photo) and Eric Reid (right in photo) aren't signed soon. Both former San Francisco 49ers disrespected veterans and the national anthem by kneeling during the final year of their contracts, incurring the wrath of fans and the good sense of owners not to hire them. Newberry is encouraging the players to go on strike until the two pariahs are signed.
