Following former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg throwing his hat into the 2020 Democratic presidential race, Bloomberg News was rightly dragged when they announced they would be hands-off with their founder and his Democratic rivals, while continuing to grill President Trump. The move was almost universally panned, with the media beat Sunday shows on both CNN and Fox News criticizing the Bloomberg News. Although, some tougher than others.
Following a week of the liberal media trying desperately to discredit America and President Trump’s win with the elimination of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the panel on Fox News’s MediaBuzz took them to task for being “stupid,” trying to make it a “glass-half-empty” situation, and hyperventilating about a meme.
During Sunday’s MediaBuzz, host Howard Kurtz and the panel discussed the biased performance of Univision activist anchor Jorge Ramos and his role co-moderating the most recent Democratic debate. After playing some clips showcasing Ramos’s left-wing bias, Kurtz asked: “How is Jorge Ramos able to sit on that ABC panel and crusade and is that kind of an embarrassment to the network?”
Appearing on Sunday afternoon’s MSNBC Live, the Conservative Policy Institute’s Rachel Bovard injected sanity into the liberal media’s delusional, week-long obsession over Sharpiegate while thousands across the Carolinas and Bahamas have lost life, limb, and property. Not surprisingly, the MSNBC liberals were caught off guard.
As recession headlines and stories proliferate, Fox News MediaBuzz anchor Howard Kurtz had an important question for anchor Maria Bartiromo: could negative media talk damage the U.S. economy? “Do the media have the power, even if they were so inclined for dastardly political reasons, to crash the economy?” Kurtz asked Bartiromo on Aug. 25.
After two mass shootings took place within hours of each other last week, the Sunday panelists on the Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz discussed the concept that people in the media accused President Trump of being responsible for the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Our friend Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist went so far as to state that people in the media blamed Trump and his supporters for the deaths, which is “completely beyond journalists’ responsibility and a real turning point for the worst in American discourse.”
On Sunday’s MediaBuzz, Fox News Channel host Howard Kurtz interviewed Sinclair’s Full Measure host Sharyl Attkisson on a variety of topics, including the media’s overreaction to “joking exchanges” between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20, but the pair primarily focused on the collapse of “neutrality and fairness and ethical standards” in the age of Trump.
On Sunday’s edition of MediaBuzz, Fox News host Howard Kurtz covered MSNBC host Chuck Todd’s “pretty obvious swipe at this network that is based on his conception of how Fox covers Trump.” Todd had claimed that the network had “enabled” President Trump’s tweet agreeing with the analysis of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un that his possible 2020 Democratic challenger Joe Biden is a “low IQ individual.” However, if Todd had actually watched the network, he would have found many of the on-air personalities and guests did the exact opposite.
Alan Dershowitz told Howard Kurtz on Sunday's MediaBuzz that, despite his long and distinguished legal career, CNN chose Michael Avenatti over him to be their go-to guy for legal analysis about the Trump-Russia collusion probe.
Howie Kurtz, host of Fox News’s Media Buzz, sat down for an interview with Special Report anchor Bret Baier, which aired on Sunday. The two discussed the Democratic National Committee’s decision not to allow Fox News to moderate a Democratic primary debate and the New Yorker article that they used as a justification for making that decision. Baier concluded that “there is a bit of Fox derangement syndrome with a section of the left.”
If you think you noticed a difference in the liberal media’s ferocity, or lack thereof, in pursuing the two sexual assault allegations against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justice Fairfax (D) and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, you’re not wrong. As The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway called out during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz on Sunday, The Washington Post sat on the allegations against Fairfax for months while they pounced on those against Kavanaugh.
Ever since President George H. W. Bush passed away on Friday, the leftist stalwarts in the liberal media have used that news as a springboard for yet another round of attacks against the current GOP occupant of the White House. That tactic didn’t go unnoticed by FNC's MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz, who on stated on Tuesday morning's America's Newsroom that the past few days provided “a nice pause in the partisan wars” with one important piece of criticism for the press: “Everything doesn’t have to be about Trump.”
