Since the beginning of the Trump administration, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had become infamous for his out of control shouting, grandstanding, and childish antics during press briefings and other televised White House events. So, during a special appearance on the network’s Reliable Sources, Acosta defending his actions and at one point proclaimed that if he was sent to Hell, “I'll still be shouting at the Devil, is the way I look at it.”
In the wake of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement on Wednesday, and realization that President Trump would get a second conservative nomination, the liberals were torn between organizing a feeble resistance and eating their own. This was obvious in the massive flare up on CNN Tonight where host Don Lemon and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders blow up at each other over who was to blame for allowing Republicans to get control of the White House.
With the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the Supreme Court, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been undergoing a Chernobyl level meltdown on live television for hours on end. But things took a dark turn towards the end of the three o’clock hour when he ominously predicted “Spanish Civil War stuff” was going to happen in the fight between Republicans and Democrats over the high court vacancy.
It has only been a year since a deranged Democrat tried to pull off a mass assassination attempt against Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice. With the left’s targeting of Trump administration officials and others for harassment, which was being egged on by California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D), many reasonable people were rightfully fearful that we might be headed for a tragedy. This didn’t escape the observation of the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Tuesday as he asked media heads to take measures to stop the division and hatred.
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon began Monday’s edition of the show by bemoaning the death of civility in America at the hands of President Trump. “When our own disagreements turn into personal attacks, are we playing to the hands of those who want to divide us? It is on purpose. Remember, people are doing this on purpose,” he indignantly declared.
Iranian civilians rose up in protest against their government on Monday, as the country’s economic situation continued to deteriorate in the wake of the United States pulling out of the nuclear agreement with a promise to reinstitute sanctions. The protests were the second major uprising this year and despite that fact, the Iran-friendly broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) failed to mention it during their evening newscasts. It may also have something to do with the protestors allegedly chanting “death to Palestine.” Just a hunch.
After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story.
On Sunday, Washington Post “conservative” George Will won the admiration of his liberal peers when he penned a column calling for the Republican Party to lose control Congress. His anti-Republican screed was featured on CNN’s Inside Politics and ABC’s This Week. But on NBC’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd put it up for a panel discussion during the show’s “End Game” segment.
First Lady Melania Trump caused a stir with the liberal media on Thursday when she wore a questionable jacket with “I really don’t care. Do you?” written on the back. She headed off to visit the children at the border who were separated from their parents. Of course, the gossip-prone media spend a considerable about of time trying to divine the secret meaning of the wardrobe choice and there were those who suggested she was saying that to the kids. CNN’s The Lead had both.
It didn’t take long for condolences to come pouring in from people across the political spectrum and throughout the media. Even with such short notice, both CBS and NBC ran news briefs on their evening programs reporting his passing. But ABC was the lone broadcast network to skip Krauthammer’s passing. And The Washington Post, where he wrote for decades, published an obituary that partially blamed him for the Iraq War.
In the three weeks since vulgar comedian, Samantha Bee disgustingly described Ivanka Trump as a “feckless c**t” who needed to seduce her father for immigration reform, TBS’s Full Frontal has seen a dramatic drop off in corporate advertisers willing to throw their financial support behind the TV-MA rated program. Although, there was a slight bump during June 20’s episode where they picked up three additional non-Turner-owned promos over the previous week.
As the Media Research Center has documented over the past several days, the liberal media’s coverage of President Trump’s immigration policies have been incendiary, hyperbolic, and out of control. Since the liberal media was on an anti-Trump rampage, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson set out to put them in their place Monday night. To do that, he brought on Daily Caller editor Derek Hunter who detailed how the “diabolic” media sought to “prevent rational thought” on the immigration issue.
