The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle released Friday morning the site’s latest indispensable SUPERcut. This time, the topic centered around the not surprising but nonetheless horribly biased double standard between when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wagged a finger toward President Donald Trump versus when then-Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) did so to Barack Obama in January 2012.
According to a Tuesday segment on MSNBC Live, American voters do not trust female political candidates and are biased against them. You would think such an accusation would require evidence, but you would be wrong. The segment also provided host Craig Melvin, former Hillary Clinton aide Zerlina Maxwell and All in Together CEO Lauren Learner an opportunity to sing the praises of Elizabeth Warren.
On her Monday show, MSNBC Live host Katy Tur theorized that the future of Facebook as a company is very much up in the air. The latest controversy surrounding the social media company? CEO Mark Zuckerberg dared to talk to conservatives and yield to Elizabeth Warren's demands.
Given that half of the country thinks President Trump committed an act so egregious it warrants his impeachment, while the other half thinks he is the victim of the largest witch-hunt in modern history, it would be nice if there was an election that could sort this out. Fortunately, there is an election in 13 months that will allow the voters to decide what they think of President Trump, Joe Biden, and Ukraine, but MSNBC Live guest host Yasmin Vossoughian wondered on Friday what it would mean for democracy if voters made the wrong decision.
On his Thursday show, MSNBC Live host Craig Melvin invited in Jacob Frey, the mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota, to discuss President Trump's campaign rally in that city as well as the price tag that comes with it. After the segment was over, the viewer was left to conclude that Trump is a hypocrite and a cheat who doesn't pay his security bills, but Melvin left out some crucial facts that render this controversy rather non-controversial.
Over the past couple of weeks, the dominant media have displayed a classic example of their double standard in deciding which police shootings are worthy of coverage and which are less so. The networks that repeatedly hype stories that give the wrong impression that nearly all police shooting victims are black -- even though about 75 percent are either white or Hispanic -- recently gave substantial attention to the trial of a white female police officer who killed an innocent unarmed black man, Botham Jean.
Billionaire businessman Tom Steyer claims he wants to be president. This means if he gets his wish, he will face strong congressional opposition for many of his policy proposals and conniving foreign adversaries. Accordingly his Monday appearance on MSNBC Live gave host Stephanie Ruhle the opportunity to ask Steyer how he would handle some of these challenges. Instead, Ruhle encouraged Steyer to take a victory lap on impeachment and to espouse their mutual dislike of Mitch McConnell and President Trump's tax policy.
Wednesday brought the revelation that House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff lied to Sam Stein on MSNBC's Morning Joe on September 17. Naturally enough, Thursday on another MSNBC show, MSNBC Live, host Hallie Jackson decided to play up the "Republicans Seize" angle with NBC's Ken Dilanian. At least they didn't pounce.
It is clear that MSNBC and Democrats, then again who can really tell the difference, want to impeach President Trump. They may not know exactly what they want to impeach him for, but a Wednesday MSNBC Live panel was sure that impeaching Trump is how to save democracy.
On Tuesday afternoon's MSNBC Live, host Katy Tur surprisingly pressed Bernie Sanders's campaign manager from the right several times as she discussed economic policy with Faiz Shakir. As she brought up arguments that the candidate's plans to tax businesses and redistribute income would drive businesses to move to other countries, the MSNBC host either seemed like she's either finally decided to insert both sides of the issues into her show, or perhaps she's just secretly cheering for Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden because they are perceived as more electable that Sanders.
In the first hour since they finally acknowledged a bombshell New York Times story about liberal media confidant/Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) knowing in advance about the whistleblower being used to impugn the presidency, CNN’s The Lead and MSNBC Live circled the wagons on Wednesday afternoon to defend Schiff
Late last week, after word came that the former ambassador to Iraq, Joe Wilson, had passed away, MSNBC repeated some of the misinformation that journalists and other liberals pushed during the George W. Bush era as anchors Joy Reid and Katy Tur lauded Wilson for disputing President Bush's claims that Saddam Hussein had tried to acquire uranium in Africa before the invasion of Iraq.
