In the latest example of corporate media leftism, the parent company of NBC News — NBCUniversal (“NBCU”) — is set to place NBCU executive Jeff Shell as CEO of the entire company. Shell has given at least $30,600 exclusively to Democrats this election cycle. The Hollywood Reporter wrote Dec. 16, that Shell “will take over as CEO of NBCUniversal from Steve Burke.”
On the Fox News Channel Thursday night, primetime host Tucker Carlson and The Hill’s Joe Concha were turned loose to ridicule MSNBC and Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell, invoking a few of his worst moments alongside his fake news story that claimed President Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans were co-signed alongside Russian oligarchs. They noted that the faux macho man was a case study in how, when it comes to Comcast’s news properties, accountability is non-existent where falsehoods and ugly rhetoric are welcomed.
Not only did NBC debate moderators give California Sen. Kamala Harris extra time during its June debate, it turns out twelve executives from NBC Universal and parent company Comcast gave her campaign cash too. NBC was ready to crown Harris the victor after its two-night, Democratic debates June 26 and 27. In various programming the network heaped praise on the “breakout star,” calling her “brave” and “powerful.”
CNN’s Reliable Sources host and liberal media apologist Brian Stelter was at it again on Sunday night after another show largely filled with malarkey (aside from spotlighting the Miami Herald’s investigative journalism on the Jeffrey Epstein case). As true to form, he followed up a similarly mindless newsletter that, among other things, complained that it was “gross” the President would criticize MSNBC and NBC.
During a fawning report on Thursday’s Today show about former Vice President Joe Biden officially entering the 2020 presidential race, NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell briefly noted that the Democratic frontrunner’s first campaign fundraiser will be hosted “At the home of David Cohen, Senior Vice President of Comcast, parent company of NBCUniversal.”
Within the last decade, the NBCUniversal media conglomerate – at one point owned by General Electric – has gone further to the left. Unfortunately, nothing has changed since the conglomerate’s 2011 sale by GE to cable communications giant Comcast, perhaps best known for its cable TV and internet service.
The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trump’s voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump “will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children.”
During Tuesday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, one of the panelists, far-left immigration activist and open borders advocate Enrique Morones of the group “Border Angels” said that “Donald Trump, without a doubt, is pure evil. No other country in the Americas has walls.” He also said that “people are dying right now because of the wall that already exists. Eleven thousand people have died because of the 700-mile wall that already exists.”
In yet another display of liberal media fearmongering, MSNBC's Morning Joe took to the airwaves on Monday to declare that the children of illegal immigrants were being placed in "dog kennels" while at detention facilities along the U.S. southern border.
During Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd interviewed Rep. Mark Sanford (R), who recently lost renomination for his House seat in South Carolina after President Trump criticized him while endorsing his primary opponent on Twitter. Hoping for an intra-party fight to break out, Todd read aloud a quote from Senator Bob Corker, also a Trump critic, comparing the GOP to a cult. Todd then asked Sanford “would you use that word?” Later in the interview, Todd asked Sanford if he had any plans to run against President Trump in 2020.
Season two of NBC’s comedy Marlon premiered Thursday evening with two back-to-back episodes, both of which took digs at esteemed Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, portraying him as a “sellout” and the polar opposite of hero Martin Luther King. Two other famous, black conservatives were also painted as sellouts and anti-heroes: former Apprentice star and Trump administration staffer Omarosa Manigault and actress Stacey Dash.
On Thursday, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough took to the airwaves to repeat the claim from Boston Globe reporter Liz Goodwin that "children are being told and their parents are being told that they're being taken off to the showers. And that they'll return. And they never return."
