During Saturday's edition of AM Joy, host Joy Reid opened her show with video footage from a 1972 edition of NBC Nightly News announcing that the Democratic National Committee had filed a lawsuit against the Committee for the Re-Election of the President and five men who had broken into the Democratic National Committee's Headquarters at the Watergate Complex.
In a softball exchange with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday’s Face the Nation, CBS anchor Margaret Brennan fretted that President Trump’s nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be Secretary of State and his appointment of former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as National Security Advisor would “make military confrontation more likely” between the United States and Iran.
Despite spending most of her time bashing Donald Trump and Republicans on MSNBC, Nicolle Wallace is still invited to lecture the GOP. The McCain/Palin ‘08 strategist on Monday described herself as a “non-practicing Republican” on TBS’s Conan. She also insisted that you can’t talk to Trump-supporting family members about the President.
Despite recent months of intense anti-gun activism, on Tuesday, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were aghast that the National Rifle Association actually broke a fundraising record in the month of March. The pair implored their left-wing viewers to “pay attention” and that they “shouldn’t kid” themselves about the effectiveness of their protests.
Chris Hayes began then final segment of MSNBC’s All In on Monday night by lambasting Republicans for “running against Hillary Clinton” in the 2018 midterms. Ironically, Hayes spent entire remainder of his show discussing Hillary Clinton.
While commemorating the life and legacy of Barbara Bush on her Monday show, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell rightfully highlighted the former First Lady’s advocacy for AIDS patients. However, she and left-wing Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart then used the topic to falsely slam “the unbelievable and shameful silence of the Reagan administration.”
Appearing on both CNN’s New Day and MSNBC Live With Hallie Jackson on Monday, White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short called out the daily liberal media obsession with speculation over whether or not President Trump would attempt to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In a stunning attempt to shift blame for Sunday’s deadly shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee away from the mentally unstable criminal who perpetrated the crime, on Monday, an MSNBC panel claimed that gun he used, an AR-15 rifle, was the “real criminal” and that America’s pro-gun culture was also responsible for the killings.
In the aftermath of two police officers being ambushed and murdered while eating lunch at a restaurant in Trenton, Florida, last week, Fox News Channel has given substantially more attention to the tragic event than other national news outlets. In fact, various FNC shows have spent almost twice as much time on the story as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS combined.
Throughout MSNBC’s Friday coverage of student walk-outs across the country to demand gun control, the liberal cable channel’s anchors and correspondent could barely contain their excitement about the prospect of those anti-gun protesters mobilizing to vote pro-gun rights Republicans out of office in the November midterms.
If you want direct confirmation that MSNBC perpetrates fake news, then listen to Ed Schultz who used to host a show at that network. In an podcast interview with Jamie Weinstein of the National Revew, Schultz claimed that the president of MSNBC contacted him just minutes before he was due to broadcast the official kickoff of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and demanded he cover another topic instead. Schultz also claims that because MSNBC was so far in the bag with Hillary Clinton that he was subsequently fired from that network for supporting Sanders.
The second high-profile stop for former FBI Director James Comey on his book tour Thursday was MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. Just as the show began, the White House released all of the memos Comey kept on his interactions with the President to Congress (and then they leaked), so the interview was dominated by softball questions mostly stemming from those. But as the show was wrapping up, Maddow took the opportunity to rhetorically get in his face about how he hurt former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s reputation.
