Fox & Friends
Brent Scher at the Washington Free Beacon reported on Thursday that the Democratic candidate in the sixth Congressionial district of Illinois, Sean Casten, declared in a Q&A about gun violence at schools that President Trump had a lot in common with Osama bin Laden, who ordered the 9/11 attacks....and that Trump's young-male voters are like al-Qaeda recruits.
On Thursday's Fox and Friends, the show devoted more than six minutes to the case of a couple who refused advice to have an abortion after two different doctors claimed their baby had a terminal brain development condition. It turned out that, after the mother, Ariann Corpstein, gave birth, they discovered that it was, in fact, a misdiagnosis, and the baby's condition is treatable.
Both the media and liberal billionaire Tom Steyer are preoccupied with the potential for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, according to Fox News hosts and MRC’s Dan Gainor. “Remember going back even before he took office, you had people calling for his impeachment,” Gainor told Fox & Friends on Aug. 27. “The left has been out to get him the whole time.”
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time, Chris Cuomo closed his show with a commentary in which he slammed President Donald Trump, conservatives, and apparently Fox News for showing so much interest in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal immigrant. The liberal CNN host suggested that they would not have been interested in the case if Tibbetts were not white: "I wonder if these sympathizers would be as full-throated about these tragedies if the killers were white citizens, if the victims were not young, white women." But, in fact, over the past year, President Trump and Fox News have highlighted several examples of minorities who were murdered by illegal immigrants.
Brian Stelter just can’t help himself, desperately going after his competitors over on Fox News Channel for getting more interviews with the President than his network ever will. The bitter CNN host and senior media correspondent attacked Fox and Friends host Ainsley Earhardt on Twitter, for her interview with President Trump that aired this morning and blew up the media today for the President’s comments on the Manafort trial and whether or not he could be impeached. But Stelter was more outraged by the Fox News host’s interview style, heckling her in a tweet and a blog post about her “softball” questions to Trump. Unfortunately for Stelter, he doesn’t have the greatest record on giving hard hitting interviews with Democrats
During a visit on Tuesday's Fox & Friends, Daily Wire editor-in-chief and conservative podcast host Ben Shapiro slammed the celebrities who criticized President Trump during the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) the night before. Shapiro began sarcastically: “So much courage! You know how much courage it takes to be in Los Angeles in front of a group of cheering people who hate President Trump and chat about how terrible Trump is and how terrible the wall is?”
As previously documented by NewsBusters, ABC, CNN and CBS spent time over the weekend fretting over an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was arrested at a California gas station while driving his pregnant wife to the hospital. After it was revealed that he was suspected of committing a murder in Mexico, ABC and CBS both highlighted skepticism about whether the arrested man, Joel Arrona-Lara, really did have a warrant out for his arrest, noting that a Mexican agency reported that they had no record of a warrant for him.
In the last couple of days, FNC's Fox and Friends has given attention to the far-left violent group Antifa -- which is sometimes defended by the liberal media -- who have a history of making attacks on not only mainstream conservatives but also on the dominant left-leaning media.
Hey, did you hear the one about President Donald Trump dying in a river? Yeah, not exactly funny material is it? Well at a political rally, on Sunday, liberal Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings made a sick joke at President Trump’s expense: “I will tell you one joke. Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe? A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim. And a catastrophe is anybody saves his ass.” Yet, so far, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN or MSNBC have touched this story.
Between Thursday and Friday, CNN's New Day show has twice covered the story of a white police officer in Nashville who shot and killed a black suspect who, although armed, appears to have been running from him in surveillance video. But the same show lately has paid little attention to recent cases in which police officers have been attacked or killed, appearing to be more interested in stories that make the police look bad, especially those that involve racial issues.
On Tuesday night, FNC gave an update on the case of an Iraqi refugee with a criminal history who managed to escape deportation and recently went on to shoot a police officer in Colorado Springs. FNC have covered the story a number of times since Friday, but the other networks have completely ignored the tragic event. Ironically, on the same day that the attempted cop killing story broke, several networks did make time to undermine the Trump administration's push to deport illegal immigrants, this time by focusing on the wife of a pro-Trump veteran who was given a deportation order and left for Mexico.
The news media loves to talk about guns, just not when they're used to save lives. Take for instance the fear mongering over 3D printed guns that took over network and cable news coverage last week, or the coverage of the tragic fatal shooting that took place over a parking spot dispute in Florida a few weeks back. But this past weekend, a major mass shooting that could have ended in numerous casualties and injuries was prevented by a good guy with a gun, and the liberal networks had nothing to say about it.
