On Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell was the latest example of the liberal news network peddling propaganda for Democrats as the MSNBC host hyped complaints about alleged voter suppression aimed at minorities while excluding critical pieces of the other side of the story.
Following what’s become a persistent narrative from the liberal media, Chuck Todd declared on Friday’s MTP Daily that the midterm message put forth by President Trump (and, by extension, the GOP) has been “a heavy dose of a bit of fear-mongering, conspiracy theories and even some mob-style antics.” Ah yes, so Todd is going to insinuate that Trump’s GOP are the real mob and not the left.
Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski went on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, Thursday, to praise liberal candidates, bash Donald Trump and make wild predictions. Scarborough insisted that Trump won’t even run in 2020: “I don't think Donald Trump is going to run for reelection. He didn't want to be elected for president. He didn't think he was going to be elected.”
In an otherwise critical piece about Hillary Clinton’s continued high public profile being a problem for Democrats ahead of the midterms and 2020, Politico’s Annie Karni touted the former Democratic nominee having learned at least one lesson from 2016: she should have been nicer to reporters. Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Friday afternoon, Karni emphasized how Clinton “understands that now she screwed up her relationship with the press.”
Friday afternoon on MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle talked with political correspondent Steve Kornacki about the media and Trump’s effect on the upcoming Midterm elections. In a rare moment of self-reflection, the MSNBC team noted that maybe the things they were outraged by weren’t the same things voters cared about.
President Trump’s archenemy and 9/11 truther Rosie O’Donnell used her platform as a guest on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House to trash the President, whom she described as “evil” and “dark.” . O’Donnell suggested orchestrating a military coup against the President in addition to claiming that his “wet dream” involves scaring journalists into “not printing bad news about him, which is also equivalent to the truth about him.”
With the elections only 18 days away, Morning Joe bemoans the Democrats' lack of a message. They warn that Dems could fail to retake the House or the Senate, and that Beto O'Rourke could lose by 10 points.
Twice this week, CNN host Don Lemon has given attention to claims that Georgia Republicans have engaged in "voter suppression" against black voters without mentioning key parts of the Republican side of the argument. And MSNBC finally mentioned that Georgia Republican gubernatorial nominee and current Secretary of State Brian Kemp has charged that "sloppy" work by a liberal group is to blame many of the 53,000 registrations mostly of minorities being put on hold, although New York Times reporter Alstead Herndon dismissed the claims as he appeared as a guest.
Thursday’s lead Hardball segment offered blistering hot takes concerning the likely death of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi with former Obama administration official Ben Rhodes suggesting that President Trump’s disdain for the press allowed for Khashoggi’s death and host Chris Matthews equating Jared Kushner to the Saudi Crown Prince.
How again are the liberal media not a part of the opposition party? On Wednesday’s Cuomo Prime Time on CNN and Hardball on MSNBC, it just so happened that they ran nearly identical segments smearing Republicans for “employ[ing] scare tactics” and “fear-mongering” people into supporting the GOP at the polls. Thankfully, Brooke Baldwin wasn’t on-air during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour of CNN, as host and faux journalist Chris Cuomo mentioned the word “mob.”
Desperate to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous political stunt of taking a DNA test to try to prove Native American heritage, late Thursday morning, MSNBC Political Analyst and SiriusXM Director of Progressive Programming Zerlina Maxwell actually insinuated that the Cherokee Nation was racist, following their statement condemning Warren.
During Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the panel expressed outrage at President Trump calling porn star Stormy Daniels "horseface" and so the outrage culminated in a rant by co-host Mika Brzezinski against Trump, questioning his fitness for office and urged cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment.
