Face the Nation
Monday's CBS This Morning on Monday highlighted the “devastating toll” the coronavirus is having on nursing homes in this country, noting that 28,000 deaths are connected to nursing homes. What wasn’t mentioned at all in the four minute-plus segment? New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous decision to send COVID patients to nursing homes. Somehow, that never came up at all.
On Sunday's Face the Nation, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told CBS host Margaret Brennan the media's "so in the tank" on the Biden scandal in Ukraine. It came right on the edge of a commercial break, when Brennan felt compelled to add the usual in-the-tank disclaimer that "nothing" has been "substantiated" on Biden corruption. Graham made the obvious point: the media make zero or near-zero effort to substantate the Biden scandal, and then say tsk-tsk that it's unproven.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became quite agitated during an interview with Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan, aired on Sunday, when the CBS anchor dared to mention Republican criticism of the impeachment process against President Trump.
The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page “news” article on Sunday that somehow President Trump was losing his marbles in “rage,” going “beyond his often-untethered bounds.” Post readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state when he held a raucous rally in Minneapolis and said supposedly crazy things like the Democrats are carrying out “a brazen attempt to overthrow our government.” What is this attempt to impeach and remove Trump, if not an overthrow of the president?
Margaret Brennan on Sunday's Face The Nation seemed to place her faith in the veracity of second hand information produced by the whistleblower concerning the phone call between the Ukrainian president and President Donald Trump. Secondhand information which could be properly labeled as "hearsay" which is what guest Senator Lindsey Graham called it.
It might have been football Sunday, but CBS and Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan offered up slow-pitch softballs to anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN). Downplaying her guest’s “sometimes controversial” comments, Brennan asked simple questions that allowed Omar to freely make excuses. Of course, Brennan ignored Omar’s raging anti-Semitism.
Bernie Sanders now has 286 delegates for next year's Democrat convention. Not 285 nor 287 but precisely 286 delegates according to CBS News elections and surveys director Anthony Salvanto. Yes, Elizabeth Warren might have a plan for...whatever but Anthony Salvanto has the precise delegate count despite the fact that we are months before the first Democrat primary.
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris gleefully laughed on Friday when a voter mocked Donald Trump with what is considered a slur against handicapped people. Yet, NBC has still not covered the incident. ABC and CBS have offered scant coverage and The View hosts defended the intentions of the Democratic senator. On Friday, a man at a Harris rally asked about Trump: “What are you going to do in the next one year diminish the mentally retarded action of this guy?” The 2020 Democrat responded with a big smile and cheered, “Well said. Well said.”
On CBS's Face the Nation, Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, a hardcore abortion backer, calls abortion a "life and death" decision that women should have right to make. CBS host Margaret Brennan didn't blink.
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.”
