Just a day after the White House announced the departure of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, The Washington Post posted a heartwarming tribute to Sanders on its Instagram page. Just kidding. The Post instead followed the lead of cable television; providing nasty commentary describing her as “the queen of gaslighting” and mocking her “curled-lip disdain.”
On CNN's New Day, New York Times reporter and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said "Joe Biden's core strength is his decency," and claimed the Trump campaign is "having a very hard time figuring out how to attack that." We'll leave on the table whether the Avenatti-Stormy Network has the credentials to talk about anyone's "decency." But Haberman's phrasing is strange. Trump doesn't have trouble "figuring out" how to attack anyone. Maybe liberal reporters think the punches won't land, but he's going to punch.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough jokes about Paul Manafort being incarcerated at the infamous hellhole of Rikers Island in NYC. And thus it was that on today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough joked about Paul Manfort being confined at Rikers Island, which has been described as a "hellhole," as here, here, and "the most notorious jail in America."
As the saying goes, “all politics is local.” That sentiment seemed to seep into CBS News’s Thursday reports on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio throwing his hat into the 2020 race. In both flagship morning and evening newscasts, anchors and reporters alike mocked the Democratic candidate. During CBS This Morning, co-host John Dickerson quipped: “Bill de Blasio is the answer to what question that isn’t being [asked]?”
After The New York Times published their story last week about President Trump losing $1 billion in the 80s and 90s, did you feel like you already knew about that? So did everyone else, because Trump’s financial problems during that time were well documented. So, during his late Saturday night show, Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld ripped into the Times for trying to drop “a bombshell revealed to millions of people on national TV over a decade and a half ago.”
A New York Times story about gentrification in the historically black South Park neighborhood of Raleigh, North Carolina includes these lines: "A few new homes rise high above the modest, single-story properties around them. Those houses, some longtime residents lament, feel so large that they evoke plantation homes, complete with second-story porches an overseer might use to keep an eye on the black residents nearby."
On Thursday, The New York Times international edition ran a political cartoon that was supposed to show Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leading a blind President Trump around. But the cartoon was filled with anti-Semitic symbolism. Worse yet, when they finally responded to the outcry on Saturday, the Editor’s Note the paper put out noted the offensive nature of the image but didn’t apologize.
On Tuesday, NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’Agostino compiled a roundup of several incidents in which liberal media shriekers declared Attorney General William Barr was orchestrating a “cover-up” of President Trump’s crimes with redactions to the Mueller Report. But it appears as though all their hyperventilating, pearl-clutching, hyperbole, and other defining verbs were for not.
On Joy Reid's show, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson says "everybody's been kissing [Pete Buttigieg's] butt, too. It's amazing to me. It's because—let's be candid. Most of the reporters are white. And they're looking for a white guy who makes them feel good about themselves."
In the latest series of attempts to raise the profile of South Bend Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Never-Trumpers and liberals have attempted to highlight his Christian faith. New York Times columnist David Brooks tried to showcase the openly gay mayor’s “conservative family values” while USA Today’s Kirsten Powers hailed his “countercultural approach to Christianity.”
It’s a story few people had actually heard about, but that didn’t stop Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News from throwing out the word “firestorm” to describe, ostensibly, their reaction to a dubious Washington Post article depicting Republicans and Trump administration officials as monsters, who didn’t care about the safety of children harmed by strollers.
Not long after spiking an op-ed because of its decision to use “not reliable” conservative sources, USA Today published a cover story Tuesday that came across as more of an op-ed than an actual news story. The story, titled “Climate change: war, famine, drought, make more women not want children,” asks the question “is the future simply too horrific to bring children into?”
