The left went bonkers on Twitter when news broke that Big Tech billionaire Larry Ellison was hosting a pro-Trump fundraiser. Lefty outlet Vox Recode characterized the billionaire founder of Oracle Corporation's decision to support President Donald Trump as "unthinkable for a tech titan" and “a major coup for the Trump team." Recode continued: "Ellison is, after all, the country’s fifth-richest person, with a net worth of almost $70 billion.”
That's the way to sum up the Daily Beast description of wealthy Democrat candidate for president, Tom Steyer. The purpose of their Saturday article by David De La Fuente was to shame the Democrats into including "candidates of color' at their next presidential debate but a big take away from the story was that it basically described Steyer as a scam artist.
The Daily Beast somehow expects history to be rewritten. Why? Because an accurate portrayal of history could help Donald Trump. The history the Daily Beast is upset about is the portrayal of Richard Jewell in the film "Richard Jewell" as a victim of the FBI and much of the media for being put forward as the suspect in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta Georgia. The reason for the Daily Beast's discomfort is that they think it makes the film pro-Trump.
On Monday, The Daily Beast published an article with the title “Melania Trump’s Joyless Christmas Decorations Are Back to Haunt Your Nightmares.” The author of the piece, Daily Beast style writer Alaina Demopoulos, went so far as to call the White House Christmas display “state-sponsored jingoism.” While the opening sentence of the article gives the impression that “Melania Trump tried this Christmas,” it did not take long for Demopoulos to begin trashing the First Lady’s White House Christmas displays in both the past and present.
In a lengthy Sunday article touting a softball interview with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, The Daily Beast’s Molly Jong-Fast portrayed the infamous anti-Trump bureaucrat as one of the President’s “victims” who was put through “the MAGA meat grinder.” The author lamented that Page was subjected to an “extraordinarily politicized environment and a president who had a habit of attacking career government employees.”
Are you a lefty who’s secretly aware many of your viewpoints are whack and fear critical conversation with conservative relatives this Thanksgiving? Don’t worry! Just smoke a bunch of weed, or better yet as — Daily Beast insists — make a “cannabis-infused gravy” that will taste good (most likely not) and inoculate you from having earnest conversation with people from other perspectives.
Facebook has taken heat for supporting free speech and for including Breitbart in its “News” tab, and now its VP of global marketing solutions is making a stand. Yesterday, Gizmodo wrote its not-so-objective commentary that “Facebook recently announced that white supremacist propaganda site Breitbart would be considered a ‘high quality’ news source on its platform, leading to complaints that Facebook was legitimizing hate.”
As NewsBusters has previously reported, Seth Meyers’ new Netflix stand-up special, entitled “Lobby Baby,” has a button that allows viewers to fast-forward through the Trump jokes. According to Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast, “you shouldn’t” because “that means skipping the exact thing he does better than anyone.” The anti-Trump Fallon devoted an entire article to explaining how “Seth Meyers Does Trump Jokes Better Than Anybody.”
The media are opposed to anything that remotely resembles a neutral approach. So when Facebook decided to leave political ads from politicians untouched, the liberal news media declared war. Head of Facebook News Campbell Brown wrote in an Oct. 30 Facebook post that she was “astonished at the reaction by other journalists to Facebook's decision not to police speech from political candidates.”
The Discovery Channel's six part documentary series "Why We Hate" which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg premiers on Sunday on the Discovery Channel. So do you have any idea which person is being focused upon by the Daily Beast as an example of perpetrating hate? Of course you do. It is the Big Bad Orange Man aka President Donald Trump.
So much for transparency. Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer claims he has a commitment to transparency. But the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the government he could not disclose hundreds of millions of dollars worth of assets. After his filing with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, The Daily Beast reporter Lachlan Markay reported that Steyer “declined to go into detail about significant segments of his investment portfolio, citing confidentiality agreements.”
It’s been almost 3 years and yet liberals are still puzzling over how President Trump won the 2016 election. Comedian Anthony Jeselnik has a new answer: he lays blame at the feet of Saturday Night Live head Lorne Michaels. “I think Lorne Michaels helped get Trump elected,” Jeselnik said in an interview with Matt Wilstein on The Daily Beast’s The Last Laugh podcast, released on Tuesday.
