On Monday afternoon, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and MSNBC's Katy Tur continued their networks' recent history of highlighting misleading claims by Democrats that Georgia Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" against minorities. At 1:40 p.m. Eastern on his Wolf show, Blitzer proclaimed: "Georgia is fast becoming ground zero for the debate over voter suppression." After noting that GOP Secretary of State Brian Kemp is running for governor against Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, the CNN host continued:
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, longtime journalist and liberal MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter proclaimed that "you can kiss democracy goodbye" if Republicans retain control of the House of Representatives as he also complained that the press are not being tough enough on President Donald Trump as he has given the media more access before the midterm elections.
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.
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.
On Friday night and on Saturday, several MSNBC shows threw around charges of racism by Georgia Republicans as the liberal news network continued hyping the story of 53,000 new voter registrations being held in a "pending" status until those voters verify their information.
Between Thursday night and Friday evening, a number of shows on both CNN and MSNBC have pushed claims by Democrats that Georgia Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" targeted at black voters because of reports that more than 50,000 new voter registrations of mostly black voters are being held in limbo because of errors in the paperwork. But only CNN's Jake Tapper has bothered to note that Secretary of State and gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp gave an explanation for why a disproportionately large number of black voters were affected.
As Hurricane Michael smashed into the Florida panhandle, both MSNBC and CNN on Thursday were worried about the really important issue: How to educate the “bizarre” and ignorant Americans who don’t fully adopt the left’s prescriptions for solving global warming. MSNBC journalist Craig Melvin talked to fellow liberal Nicholas Kristof and lectured, “Most sane-thinking people would acknowledge that the intensity of the storms... due in no small part to climate change.”
During Sunday’s edition of MSNBC Live With Yasmin Vossoughian, the panel had few kind words about Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Guest Danielle Moodie-Mills remarked on guest host Richard Lui’s comment that President Trump had a very good week, saying “it’s just funny to me that a good week for Donald Trump is a horrible week for our democracy and the American public.” Mills added that “if this President is proud of a stolen seat and proud of now two sexual predators being on the Supreme Court, that is not a legacy that I would want” before expressing her desire for a “blue tsunami.”
On Monday morning, several shows on CNN and MSNBC picked up on a United Nations report alleging that the world only has about 10 years to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to stave off "dire" and "catastrophic" consequences of global warming.
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
On Sunday afternoon, as Doris Kearns Goodwin appeared on both CNN and MSNBC to promote her new book, the longtime NBC presidential historian fretted that after Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, the U.S. Supreme Court will go to the right on abortion, voting rights, and other issues, and on CNN called the possibilities "worrisome."
The battle for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Justice on the Supreme Court has resulted in a great tragedy. Michael Avenatti's appearances on television are likely due to be sharply cut back. Why? Because liberals in the mainstream media are now placing the blame for the failure of the Democrats to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation squarely at the feet of Avenatti.
