Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Politics offered a tough critique of Washington Post reporters Isaac Stanley-Becker and Tony Romm for their article headlined “Conservatives spread false claims on Twitter about electoral fraud as Iowans prepare to caucus.” This came before the caucus debacle.
Telemundo News’ coverage of the Iowa Caucus remind us all of how critically important illegal immigration is for the network. Correspondent Vanessa Hauc chose to insert drama -as if any more were needed given the voting chaos- to emphasize the subject of immigration, one that has been completely absent from the Democrat primary campaign (didn´t they love undocumented immigrants?).
There was a lot of blame being thrown around Tuesday for Monday’s chaotic Democrat caucuses in Iowa, however, one common theme emerged on ABC: could it be because there’s too many white people? On Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos blasted the state as “unrepresentative, 92% white” to his Democrat progressive guests, and that theme continued on ABC later on The View. Hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar complained that Iowa’s whiteness was a problem for Democrats while Whoopi Goldberg brought up Stacey Abrams as an example of someone who was the victim of a racist election.
Disinformation is the new buzzword for the left to push for more censorship on Twitter. While results from the Iowa Caucus are still being counted, journalists from the left want tweets from the right taken down. “Trump campaign folks are tweeting veiled suggestions Iowa is ‘rigged,’” tweeted Washington Post senior tech policy reporter Tony Romm.
On Tuesday, anchors, correspondents, and pundits on CBS This Morning all agreed that the real winner of the Democratic Iowa caucus was actually President Trump, given all the chaos that plagued the contest. The network broadcast labeled Monday’s inauspicious start to the 2020 Democratic primary season an “embarrassment” that only “helps the President.”
With a stench of arrogance that can only emanate from the news media, Des Moines Register executive editor Carol Hunter published a Thursday night column expressing no apologies for their campaign to ruin viral sensation Carson King “because readers depend on us to tell a complete story” and, as per her past statement, was done for “the public good.”
Illustrating the putrid state of the liberal media and their gleeful embrace of the “cancel culture,” the Gannett-owned Des Moines Register and reporter Aaron Calvin decided late Tuesday to impugn the character of Iowa State-fan-turned-cancer fundraiser Carson King using tweets from when the 24-four-year-old Iowan was 16.Their reason? It was just “a routine background check” and done for “the public good.”
While filling in for Stephanie Ruhle during MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Chris Jansing promoted a book club created by Iowa Democrats in which members pledged to read campaign memoirs written by 16 of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates before the Iowa caucuses in February. Jansing touted how the “relaxed, cerebral idea” was “catching on big.”
With 21 Democrats already running for the party’s nomination in the 2020 presidential campaign, many candidates are looking for a way to stand out from the crowd. Unfortunately for former Vice President Joe Biden, he and his campaign have apparently found a way to do just that. According to a freelance reporter, the candidate and his staff have “gotten physical” in their attempts to block members of the press from asking Biden any questions in an apparent attempt to avoid any inquiries that might damage his candidacy. As if that wasn’t bizarre enough, the people working with him area also taking photographs of anyone who objects to that policy.
In their concern that all Hispanics who are in the country unlawfully as well as the U.S. Hispanic community as a whole will be tainted by the revelation that Mollie Tibbetts' murderer was a Mexican national who was unlawfully present in the United States, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists has issued a rather disturbing call for censorship, calling on media outlets to withhold referencing "race and citizenship status" when reporting on suspects involved in crimes.
Saturday’s New York Times provided a soft profile of Cristhian Rivera, the accused killer of Mollie Tibbetts: “From Quiet Village in Mexico to a Lonely Furrow in an Iowa Cornfield.” They wrote: "Cristhian Bahena Rivera, the Mexican farmworker accused of killing a 20-year-old college student and concealing her body beneath corn leaves, seemed to have built a quiet, productive life in the seven or so years since he slipped across the southwest border and found work in the fields of Iowa."
Oh, the irony. While the media are arguing that one illegal immigrant shouldn’t represent all, they are, at the same time, arguing that one man represents “toxic masculinity.”
