The Beat with Ari Melber
No one doubts that the liberal media sees itself as an active arm of the Democrat party. But MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian has now provided an absolutely brazen example of the phenomenon. Vossoughian subbed for Ari Melber on his MSNBC show The Beat. Interviewing ultraliberal Rep. Jamie Raskin, Vossoughian three times asked Raskin which was the best way that "we" should go after Attorney General Bill Barr and/or the Mueller report and testimony by Mueller.
Since the national consensus on the report by Special Consul Robert Mueller was that it cleared President Trump of charges he colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, the liberals at MSNBC have decided to focus on another charge: whether Trump tried to block the investigation of himself. One example of this tactic comes from Ari Melber, a former lawyer and host of The Beat program on weekday evenings, who on Monday claimed that there is “substantial evidence against Trump regarding the crime of obstruction of justice” and compared the situation to the scary movie When a Stranger Calls.
As NewsBusters illustrated all day on Sunday, MSNBC’s nonsense was shooting out into the ether like water from a fire hose During the 6:00 p.m. Eastern hour, so-called experts offered hot takes such as “the Russians have clearly won” and “Mueller basically seem to abdicate or punt on” the obstruction portion of the investigation.
On Tuesday's The Beat show on MSNBC, host Ari Melber gave an eight-minute commentary complaining about Republican opposition to new gun control laws as the MSNBC host also repeated the discredited myth that Charleston mass murderer Dylann Roof was already a convicted felon who could have been barred from purchasing his gun if not for a "loophole" that allowed him to purchase it after the background check took too long to complete.
On Friday's The Beat show on MSNBC, host Ari Melber gave no pushback and oddly seemed to go along with one of his guests, talk radio host Charlamagne Tha God, when he repeated as fact the conspiracy theory that the FBI was behind Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1968 assassination.
If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was of course his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." The unbelievable gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off her MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and his The Beat.
Oh, the irony! Liberal activist Sally Kohn is the author of "The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity." Amazon describes her as someone "learning how to talk respectfully with people whose views she disagrees with passionately . . . It was time, she decided, to look into the epidemic of hate all around us and learn how we can stop it." But when she appeared on Ari Melber's MSNBC show this evening, Kohn proceeded to . . . hate on President Trump. True, she did it with a smile and a jovial air. But the substance was as hateful as that of your standard, enraged, social justice warrior.
Along with New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay’s non-sense early Wednesday hours after the State of the Union, actor and comedian Sinbad joined MSNBC’s late-night coverage and slammed President Trump as a “fool” who “doesn’t feel anything” and carried out an “atrocious” government shutdown. He also added that he should have been given “a pimp slap” by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Not to gratuitously insult Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she has to be one of the, um, most lightly-informed pols in a long time to wander onto the national stage. But that didn't stop Chuck Todd from lavishing praise on her. Discussing his just-concluded interview with Ocasio-Cortez with fellow MSNBC host Ari Melber, Todd found reason to variously describe her as thoughtful, refreshing, impressive and smart.
MSNBC’s midnight edition of Hardball was a trainwreck following Tuesday’s State of the Union address by President Trump, so it was only natural for the fun (or whatever you want to call it) to continue into the final hour of coverage. For that, MSNBC turned things over to The Beat host Ari Melber, who oversaw plenty of nonsense on abortion, the President, and Stacey Abrams from guests Mara Gay of The New York Times editorial board and The Root’s Jason Johnson.
On Ari Melber's MSNBC show, MSNBC contributor Eleanor Clift praises the refusal of Democrats to negotiate with Republicans on the government shutdown, saying, "the Democrats are defending a principle here, that you don't negotiate with terrorists when they're holding hostages."
MSNBC guest Mark Thompson thinks Trump supporters are "gullible" and "acting against their own interest." Right. Because if you weren't so clueless, you'd be a huge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fan, eagerly awaiting the coming socialist nirvana.
