On his Fox News show of April 7th, Tucker Carlson noted that experts, including Dr. Zeke Emanuel [of the far-left Center for American Progress], are saying society cannot return to normal for at least 18 months. Carlson pointed out how wrong those same experts have been when it came to projecting hospitalization rates, needed numbers of ventilators, etc. On Morning Joe of April 8th, Emanuel called Carlson a "right-wing clone" of President Trump, and whined that Tucker was "attacking" him.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, former ABC News weekend anchor Carole Simpson admitted that she is a "fan" of New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo and declared that "[I] wish very much" that he were President. The show also demonstrated that President Donald Trump's administration will be criticized no matter how they handle the pandemic because, within the same show, members were criticized for being both too positive and too negative in public discussions of the crisis.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests, and John Heilemann emphatically agrees, that by criticizing vote-by-mail, President Trump is establishing a basis to refuse to accept the results of the election should he lose in November. Heilemann says: "If he loses the election, he will stand up and say, this election was rife with fraud. We had way too much vote by mail. I do not accept the results of the election."
On his Fox News show, Tucker Carlson calls Mika Brzezinski's accusation that President Trump has a financial stake in hydroxychloroquine "the most reckless claim" he'd ever heard during a pandemic. Tucker went on to label Mika's claim "paranoid, and crazy, and stupid," adding, "to say something like that on your stupid television show is totally wrong."
MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell and the Washington Post's Philip Rucker decided on Monday to place the blame for the current pandemic on President Trump and red states by conveniently ignoring all contrary evidence that would suggest that partisan affiliation has nothing to do with the current health crisis.
Despite arguing just days earlier that the media should continue to cover the daily White House press briefings from the Coronavirus Task Force, on Monday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski dramatically flipped her position, wailing that the events were “a complete waste of time” that “literally have no value.”
In perhaps the most explosive accusation yet against President Trump made by a liberal media member regarding the coronavirus, Mika Brzezinski has accused the president of having a "financial tie" to someone that leads to him to promote the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat the virus.
On Friday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, Walter Isaacson, the former editor of Time magazine, interviewed Jon Meacham, the former editor of Newsweek magazine. At this time, Meacham poses as a pseudo-impartial historian, just as PBS poses as an unbiased channel of intelligent information. Isaacson preposterously suggested "I've never known your political orientation" before asking Meacham why he endorses Joe Biden.
On Sunday's Velshi show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi joined left-wing activist Reverend William Barber in complaining that taxes on the wealthy aren't higher, and dismissed the benefits to society contributed by the wealthy. He also invoked Marie Antoinette against the Trump administration over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid wonders whether Fox News could be liable to viewers suing the network for having misled them regarding the dangers of the coronavirus. So much for all the alarm in the liberal media about legal punishments for news organizations in the Trump era.
MSNBC allowed Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace to host their coverage of Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, predictably, she twice interrupted to rip President Trump with like-minded guests Kimberly Atkins and Steve Schmidt. In Schmidt’s case, he blabbered that Trump was “completely over his head,” “incoherent,” “mentally….unraveling,” and “rambling.”
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid and fellow MSNBC host Ali Velshi pushed for a British-style national health care system during the coronavirus pandemic even though there are reports that the country's National Health Service (NHS) has fared poorly during the current crisis. In fact, if one crunches the numbers, the overall per capita death rate from COVID-19 has been substantially higher so far in the United Kingdom than in the U.S.
