The Beat with Ari Melber
During a rare moment of clarity on Thursday’s The Beat, MSNBC host Ari Melber seemed to realize the contradictory nature of the liberal media’s dueling hyperbolic narratives against President Trump. “Is he Darth Vader or is he like the worst Stormtrooper,” Melber wondered. The question came while his guests were arguing about whether Trump was an all-controlling and murderous dictator or hopelessly incompetent.
From time to time, the liberal media will not only have their masks slip, but completely give away the store in terms of their partisan motivations and strategy. During Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC seemed to have done just that, conceding the trial to be the left’s latest attempt to remove President Trump out of office because they don’t like him.
Amidst Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s panel kept alive the boring, nonsensical, and predictable living love letter to the House Democratic impeachment managers, calling Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) “excellent” and equating his team to a thorough landscaping team mowing a lawn or a captivating episode of Wheel of Fortune (with Schiff as Vanna White).
MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell was once again a panelist during the Senate impeachment trial’s dinner break, joining his colleagues this time on Wednesday and opined that it’s been “another extraordinary day” and that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) defending the President represents “the face of terror” fearing the wrath of Trump.
On Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber, fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin led a panel discussion in which he and other MSNBC regulars complained about President Donald Trump's success in getting Mexico to shoulder some of the cost and responsibility for keeping illegal immigrants out of the U.S.
Both CNN and MSNBC rushed to put disgraced CBS News anchorman Dan Rather on the air Wednesday night, which underlines they think all that matters about journalism is your "heart was in the right place." Rather's liberal heart was on display as he sought to underline that "history" was going to be tough on Trump and his Republican defenders. Rather actually told Don Lemon -- no laugh track provided -- that there are people out there who take the attitude "don't bother me with facts, I have my mind made up."
Over the past couple of weeks, the dominant media have displayed a classic example of their double standard in deciding which police shootings are worthy of coverage and which are less so. The networks that repeatedly hype stories that give the wrong impression that nearly all police shooting victims are black -- even though about 75 percent are either white or Hispanic -- recently gave substantial attention to the trial of a white female police officer who killed an innocent unarmed black man, Botham Jean.
After spending Tuesday afternoon whining about Planned Parenthood opting out of Title X funding over an abortion gag order, MSNBC journalists kept up the shameless partisanship into the evening on The Beat With Ari Melber. To no one’s surprise, Melber brought on a far-left feminist panel to melt down over the news, who laughably attacked the right’s “morality” for not allowing government funding of abortion.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, the eponymous host shared some “new information and context for President Trump’s race-baiting rhetoric and discriminatory policies.” This “new information” came in the form of indefensible comments from then-California Governor and Future President Ronald Reagan and the then-President Richard Nixon, which Melber gleefully used as a lynchpin to attack Republicans and conservatives as racist.
On Ari Melber's MSNBC show, Mara Gay, a member of the New York Times editorial board, argues that the US should admit Central Americans fleeing "domestic violence." David Frum rebuts, saying the asylum system is designed to address cases of individual governmental persecution, not people's personal troubles. He also refutes Gay's claim that violence is on the rise in Central America, pointing out that the homicide rate has declined by two-thirds since 2011.
In recent appearances on MSNBC, far-left commentator and former CNN contributor Sally Kohn has again been spreading misinformation on the government's handling of illegal immigrants as she has repeated incorrect claims that legal asylum seekers were separated from their children. She also accused Republicans of having "systemically intimidated, threatened, and cracked down on" both "documented and undocumented immigrants."
On Thursday's The Beat, MSNBC host Ari Melber and liberal actor George Takei fretted over the Trump administration planning to keep some illegal immigrant children in former internment camps from the World War II era even as Melber admitted that the Barack Obama administration had done the same thing. The two also at times misleadingly gave the impression that there is still a zero tolerance policy that leads to the separation of parents and children even though a court halted the practice last year.
