As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
The Boston Globe is lobbying for a mass denunciation of Donald Trump as a response to his complaints about the media. According to The Hill, over 100 newspapers all over the country will “publish editorials fighting back against President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media.” In a pitch to fellow newspapers, the Globe demanded, “We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration's assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date.”
In recent days, liberal New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has targeted Fox News and its parent company News Corp with accusations of damaging the country. In an appearance during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN, he defended his claims and fantasized about how well off the country would be if News Corp-owned news outlets didn’t exist.
During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace suggested that a Republican with a “spine” needs to “call on all Republicans to boycott Laura Ingraham’s program until she apologizes for articulating and embracing a racist ideology like disparaging legal immigration.” Wallace and her panel repeatedly brought up the fact that David Duke had tweeted out support for Ingraham’s Wednesday monologue on The Ingraham Angle, which pointed out that America has changed dramatically because of legal and illegal immigration.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue highlighting the hypocrisy of the media for slamming President Trump when he goes after media outlets but looking the other way when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Fox News during a recent interview with The Guardian.
In yet another case of double standards, the media has all but ignored a scandal surrounding longtime Democrat Senator from California, Dianne Feinstein. New reports are revealing that Feinstein had unknowingly let a Chinese spy infiltrate her office, working for her as her personal driver for twenty years. But there hasn’t been one mention on television of the story from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC, despite the media’s supposed “concern” over foreign nationals hacking our democracy.
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.
In a whiny tweet Tuesday afternoon, CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny complained about President Trump not taking questions from the White House Press Corps as he left for a campaign rally in Florida, even making this completely false claim: “It marks at least a week that he’s gone without answering questions about his Tweets or anything else in the news.”
On Tuesday morning, FNC continued to update viewers on the case of an illegal immigrant from Haiti, Wisner Desmaret, with a past criminal record who murdered a Florida police officer after managing to avoid deportation for years. The other networks continued to ignore the story even as ABC and CBS ran full reports on Tuesday morning on the case of Thurman Blevins, who was killed recently by Minneapolis police.
After Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller passed away over the weekend because of injuries sustained when he was shot on duty a week earlier, FNC's Fox and Friends ran updates on the sad news on both Sunday and Monday morning as the other networks ignored the story. FNC also informed viewers that the killer, Wisner Desmaret, is an illegal immigrant with a previous criminal record who was never deported.
Over the past week, there have been three police officers attacked and killed in the line of duty in separate incidents -- all of which were covered by Fox and Friends. But CNN's flagship morning show, New Day, only spent 11 seconds total on just one of the killings. By contrast, on Saturday morning, the weekend edition of the show managed to devote more time to an embarrassing incident in which a distracted police officer in Missouri recklessly drove into a bicyclist while using his phone.
