The liberal media got burned by Jussie Smollett’s apparent hate crime hoax because they wanted to believe the cartoonish image they concocted for Trump supporters and conservatives. The media ate it hook line and sinker and ran with it without the facts. But on Saturday, CNN media reporter and host of the so-call “Reliable Sources” program, Brian Stelter tied to distance the media from their shame.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom to debate whether there is an equivalence between Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar blaming Jewish donors for Congress's support of Israel, and past comments made by several Republicans, liberal CNN contributor Peter Beinart smeared Israel by accusing the Jewish state of practicing "state-sponsored bigotry" against Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank and "violating human rights."
The liberal media took another massive blow on Wednesday after an independent investigation found that the high school students of Covington Catholic didn’t harass anyone last month at the Lincoln Memorial. Effectively proving that the liberal media reports about them were smears and lies, all three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and principal Spanish-language networks (Telemundo and Univision) omitted the findings from their evening reports.
Despite the fact that CNN has covered the latest anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) throughout the day on Monday, numerous analysts and hosts have tried to assist Omar by muddying the waters, suggesting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is also anti-Semitic for a tweet last year criticizing the left-wing views of Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and Tom Steyer.
On Monday morning, the broadcast network morning newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to cover the latest flashes of anti-Semitism emanating from Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN) in which Omar suggested Sunday night on Twitter that politicians are being controlled by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to do Israel’s bidding. To make matters worse, Omar retweeted a tweet in which the person (who’s Jewish) referred to his fellow Jews as “hook-nosed.”
CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.
During CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, the panel blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “restrict voting rights” because he opposed a Democrat House bill which would demand Election Day be made a paid federal holiday.
Journalists treat Democrats as normal and Republicans as wildly out of the mainstream. The New York Times denounced the wife of Clarence Thomas: A “vocal conservative, Ms. Thomas has long been close to what had been the Republican Party’s fringes,” they wrote. Now try to imagine the Times writing in high dudgeon about Obama or Hillary Clinton meeting with people on “the Democratic Party’s fringes.” For 8 years Obama entertained every leftist group imaginable. And yet the Times can’t find a “fringe” on that side of the partisan aisle. They aren't going to put Kamala Harris on the "fringes."
On Monday, the White House held its first press briefing in 41 days, a stat passed around the press about how it was the longest span between briefings since cameras were brought in during the Clinton administration. Despite this kvetching, CNN and MSNBC chose not to air a single second of the briefing live, which included an announcement of new Venezuela sanctions plus questions for White House Press Briefing Sarah Huckabee Sanders and three other administration officials.
Reacting to President Trump’s Friday afternoon decision to cave and reopen the government without border wall money, CNN Newsroom nonetheless eviscerated the President as if he had announced the government would be staying closed. Instead, anchors and correspondents condemned Trump as “shameful” for having “single handedly shut down the government” that caused “agony” and illustrated a White House not in touch “with reality.”
Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom dedicated a full segment to the shameful security threats to Covington Catholic High School, its students, and their families. However, it largely brushed off this horrible reality by focusing on a “poignant exchange” between a Native American and Trump supporter outside the Covington Diocese as well as defending the media writ large from their embarrassing behavior since Saturday afternoon.
Between Saturday morning and Sunday night, CNN and MSNBC spent 53 minutes and 20 seconds on the fallout from Friday's confrontation between Covington High School students in Washington for the March for Life, a Native American veteran named Nathan Phillips, and the Black Israelites. 29 of those minutes came before anyone realized that perhaps things weren’t as they wanted it to appear. Of course, the liberal media have refused to take responsibility and issue retractions.
