Fox News Channel
While ABC and CBS were largely putting aside the many controversies of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to tout his rapid rise in the polls Tuesday, Leta Hong Fincher, the wife of a former award-winning Bloomberg News reporter was busy reminding the public of how Bloomberg censors his reporters who cover China and threatens those that don’t submit.
Through the Tuesday broadcast network morning and evening newscasts, not a single second has been spent on news first uncovered Monday by our friend Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist that Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) “and other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during the Munich Security Conference last week.”
Over the weekend, Fox and Friends Sunday gave attention to the story of an elderly woman who was murdered last month by an illegal immigrant from Guyana who was recently protected from deportation by New York's sanctuary policies. Daria Ortiz -- the granddaughter of murder victim Maria Fuertes -- appeared as a guest in the aftermath of meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday to help promote the President's actions to pressure sanctuary cities to stop harboring criminal aliens.
Liberals love nothing more than to trash the Fox News Channel as a propaganda network for President Trump. That narrative played out on the February 16 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President in an episode titled “Fox News” that treats the president's relationship with Fox News like a dysfunctional marriage.
Our friends at Grabien flagged down a funny exchange on Thursday’s The Five as FNC co-host Greg Gutfeld lampooned both the biased jury foreman in the Roger Stone case and CNN’s breathless coverage of it as “another episode of WTW, you know Worse Than Watergate” that’s no more than a “pit crew trying to resuscitate an unconscious poodle called impeachment.”
It has been four days since a deranged leftist tried to kill six Trump supporters at a voter registration event in Duval Country, Florida on Saturday with a van. In that time frame, the story had only generated a measly one minute and four seconds of airtime between three brief mentions on liberal news outlets, NBC and CNN. That’s despite the fact that the attacker had admitted to authorities that his actions were motivated by his hatred of President Trump.
As the November 3 presidential election draws ever nearer, a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C., shows that conservatives within the GOP and liberals in the Democratic Party get their news from very different sources. While noting that Republicans usually rely on the Fox News Channel and talk radio shows, the poll indicated that liberals use such sources as the New York Times and CNN.
Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough lashed out on today's Morning Joe at the moderate Republican senators who voted to acquit President Trump. The particular object of their ire was Sen. Susan Collins. Not content to suggest that Collins was "unpatriotic," Brzezinski taunted Collins, telling her to "have fun" with her "legacy" of Ukrainian deaths.
It’s one thing for a cable news network to come in first place among its rivals for weeks, months or even a year, but it’s quite another now that the Fox News Channel is celebrating the achievement of topping the ratings charts for 18 consecutive years. Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt touted the victories, adding the most-watched show on CNN, Anderson Cooper 360, "finished the month as number 23 behind 14 FNC programs."
Is it really a surprise that a liberal billionaire who spent $120 million on a “Need to Impeach” campaign is touting impeachment? Fox News reported Jan. 24, that “[2020 Democratic presidential candidate] Tom Steyer weighed in on the Senate impeachment trial Friday, urging Congress to allow the American people to hear from all relevant witnesses about President Trump's actions.”
Mark Levin unleashed a blistering attack on the hypocrisy of the mainstream media, Sunday, using two Media Research Center montages to expose: “The Democrats are the reporters and the reporters are the Democrats.” On his Fox News program Life, Liberty & Levin, showed the double standard of politicians (and journalists): “‘No, no, no. You can't talk about Biden. You can't investigate the Bidens before an election, then you're interfering in an election.’ But you can investigate Trump all you want.”
CNN is grasping at straws to explain away Americans waning interest in the impeachment trial. On Reliable Sources Sunday, host Brian Stelter and his CNN colleagues Oliver Darcy and John Avlon blamed it on the “Fox firewall” which apparently keeps the right ignorant of Democrat arguments. Besides dismissing conservatives as indoctrinated, the liberal panel also attacked the Trump administration was “flabby snowflakes” who were used to preferential media treatment.
