The journalists on Monday's Morning Joe offered very little push back to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as he appeared to push his city's own version of the Green New Deal (GND). Co-host Joe Scarborough began asking "What are you doing" and how would New York's effort "provides a road map for Democrats and independents and some progressive or forward thinking Republicans nationwide?"
With the focus of the discussion on the Mueller report shifting from collusion to obstruction of justice, some in the media are just as convinced that President Trump obstructed justice in addition to having colluded with the Russians. Their proof that Trump is guilty of obstruction is in his behavior, because innocent people do not act the way Trump has acted. One of these media personalities is MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who made the charge during Monday's Morning Joe.
MSNBC and CNN are pushing impeachment harder than the Dem presidential candidates themselves. On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski suggests Democrats have a "patriotic duty" to impeach and MSNBC contributor Adrienne Elrod twice says that Dems have "no choice" but to impeach. On CNN's New Day, Alisyn Camerota reacts almost angrily to Jeffrey Toobin's flat assertion that Dems won't impeach. Camerota says "I'm not so sure. The feeling is today . . . is that if you don't do something [impeach], if you're Congress and you don't do something, then you're saying that the President is above the law."
MSNBC host and notorious hate-monger, Joy Reid was excited Sunday morning, during AM Joy, as reporter Mike Viqueira came on with “breaking news”. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was spotted leaving church. “This is, you know, what some people would characterize as an ambush interview of a man coming out of Easter services at a church,” he admitted. “Some passersby weren't happy that we were doing that.”
You can’t make this stuff up. So here we are, days before Easter, and Notre Dame, one of the most iconic cathedrals on the planet, almost burns to the ground. As this is written there is still an investigation into the exact cause. But suffice to say the horrific sight of the toppling spire as the cathedral was engulfed in flames stirred sentient people everywhere.
Appearing on today's AM Joy, former New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston claimed that President Trump's grandfather, Friedrich Trump, built the first Trump fortune by "running whorehouses." That is a claim that is unverified, at best. The Washington Post wrote that the definitive biographer of the Trump family Gwenda Blair, "was careful not to say that Trump ran brothels. I think we don’t quite know that.” And in 2015, even the liberals at Snopes.com addressed the question: "Did Donald Trump’s Grandfather Make His Fortune in Prostitution?" Snopes ruled: Mostly False.
The month of April saw some dark days for America. On April 19, 1995, it was the Oklahoma City Bombing. On April 15, 2013, it was the Boston marathon bombing. What do those two have in common? Liberal media outlets smeared conservatives as responsible for both. On the April 19, 2010 edition of Countdown, then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann went on an unhinged rant, assigning Rush Limbaugh culpability for the actions of domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh:
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews took on an apocalyptic tone in the first half of Thursday’s show hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report and at least one panelist embraced it. In the second half, Matthews and his guests lobbied for Democrats to impeach President Trump with Matthews comparing America to being in a commercial break of a Law & Order episode awaiting a possible trial.
Columbia Journalism School wants “a new playbook” for journalism in a “1.5 degree world” because “we believe the news business must also transform.” So they’ve handpicked a selection of global warming alarmists and far-left media to instruct the media how to change.
Don’t expect that change to be toward balance or giving climate skeptics any air time. But be sure to look for major media to join in. MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Vox are all part of the “journalism” event.
As the collusion narrative finally has finally lost oxygen, President Trump's opponents in the media are moving on to whether or not he obstructed justice. Of the ten alleged instances of obstruction, some serve as potentially more damaging for Trump than others. While others have pondered whether verbs such as "attempted" constitute obstruction that could justify impeachment or whether Trump aides thwarted his worst impulses, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough was certain on Friday that Trump had obstructed justice.
Although the Mueller report did not recommend any charges against the President, liberal journalists on cable and broadcast networks spent Thursday suggesting to audiences that impeachment was imminent, if not inevitable. Throughout Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, liberal talking heads on cable and broadcast news networks mentioned impeachment an astonishing 309 times during their coverage the of the newly-released Mueller report.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests that Democrats should not "play it safe" and simply try to remove President Trump from office in 2020 by beating him at the polls. Instead, Scarborough argues that the Mueller report suggests that Trump "deserves" to be impeached, and that Congress has a "constitutional responsibility" to begin impeachment proceedings.
