Henry Rogers of The Daily Caller recently tried to ask New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat, about the Green New Deal. Menendez responded by saying he wouldn’t answer questions from The Daily Caller and told Rogers “you’re trash” before threatening to “race to the Capitol Police” if Rogers refused to stop “harassing him.” On The Ingraham Angle Thursday, guest host Tammy Bruce highlighted the media silence on this matter and contrasted it with their outrage when President Trump declares the media “the enemy of the people.”
The rollout of Senator Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) presidential campaign was immediately mired by serious reports sourced from former staffers that claimed the Senator was an abusive boss. When ABC’s Good Morning America questioned her on Monday, they avoided all the terrible details choosing instead to lob softball questions about her being a “tough boss”. But during Tuesday’s Special Report, Fox News anchor Bret Baier pressed her on whether she had ever “throw[n] a binder at anybody”.
On Wednesday's Early Start show, CNN hosts Dave Briggs and Christine Romans appeared amused at a Wall Street Journal editorial attacking conservatives like FNC's Sean Hannity for having success in lobbying President Donald Trump. In the first of four similar briefs that ran during the two-hour morning show, co-host Romans recalled Hannity's recent criticism of the bipartisan deal on border security: "Fox News host and frequent presidential advisor Sean Hannity again blasting the border compromise deal."
Led by co-host Greg Gutfeld, three co-hosts on FNC’s The Five lit into Bloomingdale’s during Tuesday’s show for their nonsensical kowtowing to angry journalists by pulling a novelty t-shirt (found by a WPIX-TV reporter Allison Kaden) on a mannequin that read “Fake News.”
On Monday morning, the broadcast network morning newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to cover the latest flashes of anti-Semitism emanating from Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN) in which Omar suggested Sunday night on Twitter that politicians are being controlled by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to do Israel’s bidding. To make matters worse, Omar retweeted a tweet in which the person (who’s Jewish) referred to his fellow Jews as “hook-nosed.”
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, frequent guest Tiffany Cross of The Beat D.C. decried President Donald Trump and Fox News host Laura Ingraham as "two white supremacists," called Ingraham and her viewers "half-wits," and excoriated Trump's "ignorant" supporters, calling them a "national emergency."
If you think you noticed a difference in the liberal media’s ferocity, or lack thereof, in pursuing the two sexual assault allegations against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justice Fairfax (D) and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, you’re not wrong. As The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway called out during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz on Sunday, The Washington Post sat on the allegations against Fairfax for months while they pounced on those against Kavanaugh.
During Friday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host discussed some of the provisions of the Green New Deal, including the eye-popping idea that the Federal government will pay anyone who is “unwilling to work.” Carlson then began a discussion with Cornell University Law Professor Robert Hockett, who advised Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal. Hockett disputed the aforementioned provision of the Green New Deal but Carlson effectively proved him wrong by reading directly from a fact sheet and FAQ list posted on her website at the time of the Green New Deal’s launch.
Our friend Joe Concha with The Hill was in rare form on Friday’s Fox & Friends, ripping everyone from Chuck Todd for not fact-checking Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Green New Deal to late night comics for their refusal to lampoon her to the double standard regarding the scandals rocking the three state-wide Democrats in Virginia.
CNN Health published an article on Wednesday titled “Before judging ‘late-term abortion,’ understand what it means, doctors say.” This article hardly qualifies as balanced, if for no other reason than the doctors author Jessica Ravitz chose to interview. One doctor interviewed by Ravitz demonized opponents of late-term abortion as “anti-abortion extremists.” Fox News’s Laura Ingraham discussed the article on her show, The Ingraham Angle, Wednesday night; and invited a pro-life doctor on her show “since CNN wasn’t interested in an opposing view.”
As NewsBusters has previously reported, The Washington Post has double standards when it comes to their coverage of politicians; gladly digging up nasty opposition research on Republicans while not doing such a thorough job when it comes to the Democrats. During Monday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham brought up another example of the Post’s double standards; this time focusing on the disparity in coverage between sexual assault allegations against Republican Supreme Court nominee (and now Justice) Brett Kavanaugh and Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax.
Dozens of prominent journalists are on their way to being sued for defamation according to Fox News. On FNC’s America’s Newsroom Tuesday, Doug McKelway reported that these journalists from just about every liberal outlet imaginable, are receiving preservation letters from Covington student Nick Sandmann’s lawyer. The letters order them to not destroy any reports or correspondences related to their coverage of the incident, which smeared the teens as racists.
