On Thursday, President Trump tweeted out a threat og levying “large sanctions” against Turkey for their arrest of American pastor Andrew Brunson on trumped up charges of espionage related to the failed 2016 military coup. Both ABC and NBC omitted the President’s efforts from their evening broadcasts and CBS seemed shocked that he would threaten a NATO ally in that sort of way.
The liberal media love to pretend that their news cycles are dictated entirely by President Trump’s Twitter feed. It’s their number one excuse when average Americans complain they’re not covering other and arguably more important topics. But oh how quickly their fascination with his account fades when he mentions something they rather keep hidden. For Thursday’s evening broadcasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC (as well as on Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo) it was Twitter allegedly “shadow banning” conservative accounts.
A group of House Republicans dropped a bombshell on Washington, D.C. Wednesday night when they introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They allege Rosenstein had been stonewalling the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees in not turning over documents they requested for months. But those facts be damned on MSNBC’s All In where Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared they were the ones “obstructing justice”.
It’s true that President Trump often says untrue things in an effort to spin a narrative to fit his agenda. But if there’s one thing the liberal media hates, it’s someone horning in on their turf. This was clearly apparent during Tuesday’s edition of AC360 when host Anderson Cooper bemoaned how the President was "gaslighting" America by telling people not to believe all the biased news stories against him. But, in order to chastise him, Cooper and his guests twisted reality.
What better way to squash a young, woke bisexual woman’s enthusiasm for being a spokesperson for a skin care company than to tell her that the company’s CEO contributed money to the Family Research Center? That is exactly what happened in the July 24 episode of Freeform’s The Bold Type titled “Plan B,” when the FRC is called one of those "racist, anti-LGBTQ groups."
In the days since President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, the liberal media have been bringing back their Russian collusion narrative in a very big way. They’re now openly pushing claims Trump committing treason, a crime punishable by death, and have been growing bold in suggesting the President was a Russian agent. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter even boasted about their new courage during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources."
It’s no secret that the hosts on CNN have a deep-seated hatred for President Trump, but rarely do they let their true feelings flow out of them like a broken faucet. That’s exactly what happened on Thursday when CNN host Chris Cuomo ended his eponymous Cumo PrimeTime show with an indignant tirade against the President because he sent out another tweet criticizing the press as “the real enemy of the people.”
On Thursday, San Francisco began a campaign to register illegal immigrants so they could vote in school board elections. Instead of reporting on that controversial liberal policy, ABC and NBC chose to focus on frivolous topics like the Brady house. ABC also fawned over Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen playing together at Madison Square Garden, while NBC touted Baltimore banning sugary drinks from kid’s menus and parents fighting at Little League games.
Between President Trump’s trip to the NATO summit last week and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, the liberal media had been trying to portray Trump as a bull in a china shop damaging relationships with allies and upending global norms. During Wednesday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime, CNN host Chris Cuomo tried to continue that narrative only to have it turned around on him by Brigadier General Anthony Tata (U.S. Army Retired).
Treason. What started out as the hyperbolic ramblings of a person on the far fringe of the left with Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan, has made its way into the liberal media as a whole. In the hours since President Trump’s press conference in Helsinki, the liberal media’s mouth-foaming rage had only grown worse. And on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, the network’s presidential historian declared there was little doubt about it: The President committed treason.
The July 17 episode of Freeform’s The Bold Type exposed the unwillingness of anti-gun leftists to accept gun owners, even if one is their best friend. Budding writer Jane Sloan was traumatized at a very young age by the Columbine school shooting and she is horrified to learn that her roommate, Sutton, owns a shotgun.
To kick off CNN’s OutFront that night, host Erin Burnett bitterly wondered, “Did the dog eat his homework, too?” “[H]ow stupid does President Trump think we Americans are,” she declared in a frustrated huff. She would get her answer a short time later from CNN senior political analyst Mark Preston.
