After Joy Behar argued that black people couldn’t be racist on Monday’s show, The View host doubled down on her comments, Tuesday. The hosts were still obsessing over President Trump’s tweets about Baltimore when Behar decided to defend her own controversial comments from the previous show by scolding her critics that it was a fact every black American suffered under “systemic racism.”
During Monday’s CBS Evening News, floundering new anchor Norah O’Donnell touted a report by correspondent Jeff Pegues as a “fact-check” of the President’s claim that Baltimore was a city “no human being would want to live”. A “fact-check” that failed miserably.
Monday The View began their hot topics segment defending Democrats and attacking Trump for his tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings and his district in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend. Co-host Sunny Hostin tried to make the case that Baltimore was a thriving city but Republican controlled-states were in worse shape, while Joy Behar pushed back against Trump calling Cummings ‘racist,’ suggesting it was impossible for a black person to be racist.
Thursday afternoon, in a tweet which has since been deleted, Thomson Reuters Global Editor for "Breakingviews" editor Rob Cox sent out a tweet which directly blamed President Donald Trump for the mass shooting which occurred at the Capital Gazette newspaper's newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland. It read, in part: "Blood is on your hands, Mr. President." In a Thursday evening release about Cox's tweet, Reuters Editor-in-chief Steve Adler stated that "We do not condone his behavior and will take appropriate action."
On Thursday afternoon, the country was jolted by the despicable, horrifying, and unimaginable shooting at the Annapolis, Maryland daily newspaper The Capital Gazette with reports of fatalities and injuries. Any reasonable person would condemn the situation and CNNers Juliette Kayyem and Brian Stelter promised not to speculate on the cause of the incident less than an hour of the initial reports, but they did just that.
The attorney generals of D.C. and Maryland arrived on the set of Morning Joe Tuesday to present their case for suing the Trump administration. It did not take long for their bias and animosity towards the President to become apparent, however. When asked about the basis for their legal action, D.C. Attorney General, Karl Racine, stated the following, “In a normal presidency, you would have the following checks and balances...the President checking himself...the staff checking the President...the Republican-controlled congress checking the President. We know that's not happening and so, it's the press, the Democratic Attorney Generals and others who are invoking the constitution and taking these things to court.”
Reports that charges were dropped against the alleged Rockville rapists led Univision to revert to its usual biases, with coverage that smeared conservatives and took immigration advocacy reporting to an absurd extreme.
National establishment media coverage of the alleged Montgomery County, Maryland rape of a 14 year-old freshman at Rockville High School at the hands of two late-teen classmates in the U.S. illegally — a story which first drew national attention only because it became a White House press briefing topic — has been grudging from the start. Now it has virtually ceased, even though the incident is at least the second recent violent one at the school, even though the father of one of the two teens is also an illegal immigrant who is now under arrest, and even though school system spending on English for Speakers of Other Languages largely resulting from the County's "sanctuary" status is spiraling out of control. Despite all of this, virtually no one in the press cares.
The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying alleged rape of a teenage girl in a Washington D.C. suburb high school bathroom by two men, including one here in the U.S. illegally. Instead, the pathetic liberal media that’s shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving over 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang raped a female student.
Earlier this week, Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and chief operating officer John Angelos said that he wouldn't want President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at his team's Camden Yards home opener until Trump "retract(s) all these outrageous things that have been said and simply apologize(s)." Most coverage of this story has failed to report that Angelos's father Peter is a longtime, heavy-contributing Democratic Party operative, while no one has questioned John's disingenuous claim of non-partisanship.
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg stood up for the government bureaucrats and left-wing paranoids in D.C. and gave them laudatory coverage: "...as Mr. Trump’s inaugural draws near, in a nation so deeply divided that it seems the political middle has entirely disappeared, perhaps no place in America feels as unsteady and on edge as the capital, which Mr. Trump calls 'the swamp.'...With his 6 a.m. Twitter blasts and chaos-sowing style -- and a roster of conservative Cabinet picks eager to do an about-face on President Obama’s policies -- Mr. Trump has upended the city’s rhythms and jangled its nerves."
Occasionally liberal agendas conflict with one another. The Washington Post exposed the challenge of promoting infrastructure spending and appeasing environmentalists in a recent story about Washington, D.C. gridlock. The liberal media generally support both climate alarmism and opposition to fossil fuels, as well as calls for greater infrastructure spending on “roads and bridges.”
