Face the Nation
Following Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan’s interview with self-described Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, New York Times columnist and CBS News political analyst Jamelle Bouie dismissed the idea that Sanders wants to radically transform America into a socialist country before delivering a public service announcement on behalf of a “very, very robust welfare state.”
Over the course of last week, the liberal media made utter fools of themselves as they appeared to compete with each other for who could concoct the most disgusting puff piece for former Congressman Robert O’Rourke’s 2020 campaign. The award undoubtedly went to Vanity Fair, who all but proposed to him. But according to CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe, the media were not to blame for their shameful behavior it was the other Democratic candidates.
In an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, CBS Justice correspondent Paula Reid surprised viewers by taking a firm stance against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) allegations of collusion. In the latter part of the show, moderator Margaret Brennan pointed out the dubious nature of Schiff’s latest allegations. “[T]his allegation of money laundering on behalf of Russia through the Trump organization but he admitted he had no proof of that thus far.”
Since it’s clear that disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam isn’t resigning in the wake of his KKK/blackface scandal, CBS has begun the rehabilitation effort. On Sunday and Monday, the network devoted a combined 23 minutes and 9 seconds to Gayle King’s interview of the Democrat. King, Norah O’Donnell and her other CBS This Morning co-hosts stressed Americans must understand the “context,” “the broader lens” and that Northam “wants to make this right.”
A group of Democrats gathered in Puerto Rico over the weekend to meet with lobbyists and attend a showing of the Broadway production Hamilton. However, by watching TV on Sunday, most Americans probably would have no idea. Of the five Sunday talk shows, only Face The Nation bothered to cover the Democrats’ convocation in Puerto Rico; which took place in the midst of a partial government shutdown.
On November 18, Crenshaw appeared with three other House freshmen on CBS’s Face the Nation. He suggested the public image of Congress could be improved if the tone of the debate improved. “Let’s not attack each other’s intent….attack each other as a person. Let’s attack ideas. We can debate ideas, we can disagree on ideas all day long.” What made Crenshaw’s approach stand out was challenging the idea that freedom of the press is under attack.
John Dickerson, host of Face the Nation on CBS, is unusually confrontational with Republican Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a supporter of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The question arises because the normally mild-mannered Dickerson was shockingly combative with Cotton. View the video, because the transcript alone doesn't do justice to just how sarcastic and confrontational Dickerson was.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
From Roseanne Barr’s firing to the President condemning MS-13, liberal journalists found new ways to tarnish Donald Trump and his supporters as racist this past month. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used the Roseanne Barr controversy to condemn Trump voters as he deemed her racist reference to former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett “represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base.” The New York Times’ Michael Eric Dyson trashed that “bigot-in-chief” Trump had “unleashed” America’s racism. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
As has been stated previously, the liberal media made total fools out of themselves last Wednesday night when they rushed to claim President Trump had slammed all immigrants as “animals.” And when the video of the full context came out, nearly all of them issued corrections and retractions. Yet despite the media’s own retractions, panelists on CBS’s Face the Nation and CNN’s Reliable Sources thought it was fair to do that to the President given his past comments about immigrants.
In a softball exchange with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday’s Face the Nation, CBS anchor Margaret Brennan fretted that President Trump’s nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be Secretary of State and his appointment of former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as National Security Advisor would “make military confrontation more likely” between the United States and Iran.
On Sunday, Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina shut down Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan when she implied that he was partially responsible for the current disunity in Washington.
