In the aftermath of the mass shooting at the naval base in Pensacola, Florida, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle invited on gun control activist Fred Guttenberg as a guest to complain about Republicans refusing to pass Democratic-supported gun control, It was the second time in less than two weeks that she has had the liberal activist on her show to discuss the issue.
On Tuesday's The Last Word, far-left MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell seized on President Donald Trump apparently misunderstanding a question from a reporter about whether the U.S. government supports Iranian protesters so that the MSNBC host could portray the President as "ignorant" and as mentally disturbed. Before bringing on a Harvard psychiatrist to agree with him that President Trump is mentally ill, O'Donnell gave a longwinded explanation of how un-intelligent or "deranged" he thinks the President is.
Queen Nancy the First? On her Saturday morning MSNBC show, Joy Reid set out on a loud-and-proud feminist jag as she sought to pump up Nancy Pelosi. But the effort backfired. She claimed that impeachment was designed to prevent President Trump from becoming a "king." But she wound up painting an unflattering portrait of Pelosi as a disdainful member of royalty who misuses her power to abuse her lessers.
Just two months after showering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with praise for rebuking the “child President” Trump, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell devoted another opening monologue to praising the Speaker; this time for her exchange with James Rosen. The Last Word host devoted the first ten minutes of his show Thursday to reporting on how Pelosi “crushed” Rosen after he dared to suggest that she might “hate the President.”
MSNBC seems to operate under the belief that one should “never let a tragedy go unexploited.” After Friday morning’s shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, the hosts and guests on the cable network turned the discussion to gun laws and how the U.S. contrasts to regulations in Britain. Host Stephanie Ruhle highlighted the terror attack in London last week as a comparison.
On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell assured viewers that she could personally “attest” to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “deep faith.” The host made the declaration while applauding the liberal leader’s denial that the impeachment push against President Trump was motivated by Democrats hating him.
Playing off Nancy Pelosi's heated response to James Rosen's question as to whether she hates President Trump, Morning Joe goes off on a long riff, repeatedly praising Pelosi's great "faith." Mika says Pelosi's filling a "moral void." There is much talk of Pelosi's great compassion for children, with Scarborough citing Gospel on "let the children come." There is no discussion of Pelosi's advocacy for abortion on demand.
Instead of memory-holing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lashing out at Sinclair’s James Rosen on Thursday morning, the liberal media decided to play it up as a testament to Pelosi’s “stunning” leadership and MSNBC’s Hardball did just that, boasting that she was “fierce” in what “may have been her finest hour.”
On Thursday, NBC and MSNBC eagerly touted a new ad from the Biden campaign that featured several liberal journalists attacking President Trump with hostile coverage of his overseas trip to the NATO summit. Despite playing the ad multiple times, none of the reporters acknowledged – or objected – to the fact that members of the press were being used to push a partisan political message.
At this point, it’s no longer surprising that the liberal media aren’t willing to give President Donald Trump an inch of positive coverage, especially when approval trends shift in his favor. A new Dec. 2 report from CNBC revealed that “Sixty percent of small business owners approve of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president.”
As the panel on Tuesday’s MTP Daily reacted to the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report, host Chuck Todd repeatedly griped that the Democrats have not pushed hard enough as they seek to move public opinion regarding the impeachment inquiry. Throughout the entire segment, Todd acted as if he still served in his old role as a staffer on Democrat Tom Harkin’s 1992 presidential campaign and not in his new role as an objective journalist.
During a break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, PBS NewsHour correspondent, MSNBC political analyst, and upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential debate co-moderator Yamiche Alcindor bolstered her role a spin agent for the far-left when she explained away far-left Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan’s supposed quip involving President Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron (which she apologized for a few hours later).
