On Morning Joe, commenting on remarks by Rudy Giuliani that could be seen as critical of President Trump, Mika Brzezinski twice asks at "what time" Giuliani crafted his remarks. She twice suggests that the explanation for Rudy's candor could lie in the fact that they came "late in the day." Back in 2016, at a time when Trump was considering Giuliani as a possible selection for Secretary of State, Mika hinted that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump.
Since the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, most of the networks have revisited one of the longstanding liberal peeves against the former Republican President -- that he brought to the attention of voters the fact that 1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis supported a prison furlough program that allowed a convicted murderer, Willie Horton, to violently attack a couple while he was free. And, in doing so, the networks have also repeated the recurring myth that Bush's campaign was responsible for "the Willie Horton ad" that used a mug shot of Horton, thus revealing his race, when, in reality, the version of the ad run by the Bush campaign did not use the image and made no hint that Horton was black.
Progressives are often quick to cry "voter suppression!" ̶ even if race-baiters like Jemele Hill have to personally manufacture such claims. Hill told the world via Twitter that she was going to vote in a state that is no longer her place of residence. When she met resistance at her old polling place in Florida, she and a poll worker claimed the "red brigade" and President Donald Trump were trying to deny her the right to cast a ballot.
On Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic says "I note for the record that they're [Fox News] talking about leprosy. Which I think is interesting, because leprosy, of course, is the most famous disease in the Bible. And I think they are trying to actually trigger people who are Bible-readers, who are religious people."
To The Atlantic's Saahil Desai, college sports have too much of the wrong complexion. As a matter of fact, he writes, college sports at elite schools are really an "affirmative action" program for rich white kids.
Billionaires, especially liberal ones, aren’t just funding candidates and impeachment campaigns in 2018. Many are also funding ballot initiatives around the country, mostly in states they don’t live in.
The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) found that 34 billionaires including liberals George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent a combined $78 million on statewide ballot measures this year. The story was co-published by the left-wing magazine The Atlantic.
The November issue of The Atlantic devoted 8,000 flowery words to excoriate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. McKay Coppins followed the ground-breaking former Republican Speaker of the House and presidential candidate around for “The Man Who Broke Politics -- Newt Gingrich turned partisan battles into bloodsport, wrecked Congress, and paved the way for Trump's rise. Now he's reveling in his achievements.”
In a Kavanaugh debate already full of anguish and anger on the part of a liberal press which has already convicted Judge Brett Kavanaugh in their own minds, Adam Serwer of The Atlantic made a quantum leap into irresponsibility with “The Cruelty Is the Point -- President Trump and his supporters find community by rejoicing in the suffering of those they hate and fear,” posted Wednesday. One suspects a lack of rational discussion forthcoming when the column opens with a description of archive photographs of lynchings.
So which is it? Is The New York Times a newspaper — a journalistic outfit? Or is The New York Times a Deep State co-conspirator against a sitting President of the United States? As the world knows, this past week, The Times opinion section published a piece titled: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration; I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclination.”
Heading into Jim Acosta’s triumphant appearance on CBS’s The Late Show Wednesday night, CNN’s chief White House correspondent received some surprise criticism from lefty outlet The Atlantic as staff writer Todd S. Purdum called him out Tuesday for living up to the verb closely associated to his name (accost) and making himself the story when it should be reporting the news.
What's the matter with you Republicans? Why aren't you acting the least bit worried about the upcoming report on the Russian investigation to be released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller? That is the attitude of Atlantic magazine writer Elaina Plott who can't figure out why Republicans are not in a state of panic over the future Mueller report. Plott's headscratching over the lack of Republican concern appeared on August 2 in "Why Republicans Aren’t Planning for the Coming Mueller Report."
Women’s rights advocates have discovered their newest foe: sportswear companies. The Atlantic relayed this troubling news in a July 25 article. Women, it seems, face problems finding fitting referee uniforms. Atlantic contributor Britni de la Cretaz pulled no punches, alluding to it as a case of “gender discrimination.”
