Journalistic integrity took another Monday afternoon on MSNBC, with another casualty in the liberal plot to paint President Trump as a closet neo-Nazi Klansman. Piling in on the liberal media frenzy following Saturday’s sad events at Charlottesville, MSNBC’s Chris Jansing anchored a segment with Trump critic Mark Potok, formerly of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
On MSNBC Live Thursday, host Ali Velshi refused to listen to his guest, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) after he started to give the liberal host an answer he didn’t like. Hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle first asked the member of the Armed Services Committee about Trump’s handling of North Korea’s threat against the U.S. territory of Guam.
SiriusXM talk show host and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah appeared on Monday afternoon's MSNBC Live with host Ali Velshi to blame a recent mosque bombing on, you guessed it, President Donald J. Trump. Obeidallah frantically cried: "He demonized our community where what we're seeing today, the climate we live in is thanks to a man named Donald J. Trump, who is President of the United States...and it's a time of fear that's palpable..."
When you hear the words "mass incarceration," you know you're about to see a group of liberals complaining that there are too many criminals in prison, and that more should be released back into society. Such was the case on Thursday's MSNBC Live as host Ali Velshi presided over and voiced agreement with an all-liberal panel with Roland Martin of News One Now and Glenn Martin of Just Leadership USA.
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber -- infamous for advising President Barack Obama to deceive the public to get ObamaCare passed -- claimed that now, unlike in the past when politicians were just "bending the truth," now they are "explicitly lying" as Republicans prepare to move ahead on repealing ObamaCare.
Jason Johnson, politics editor for TheRoot.com, a sectarian site dedicated to “black news, opinion, politics and culture”, appeared on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday morning to discuss President Trump’s verbal spar with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In keeping with the hyper-racialized rhetoric that litters the site, the editor went on a slanderous tirade against Sessions.
On Monday morning, Hallie Jackson ran a segment on MSNBC Live devoted to investigating the ills of Venezuela amid growing tensions in the South American country. For the entirety of the segment, neither the host nor her guest even mentioned the socialism that has bound the once prosperous nation to starvation.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin denied that the dominant news media have a liberal bias after Republican Congressman Dave Brat started hitting him with reports that over 96 percent of journalists who made political donations chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. A bit later, Melvin denied biased reporting as he declared, "Even if that bias did exist -- which, I mean, Dave, it doesn't -- even if it did --" Brat zinged him: "If it exists? Now, you got to come clean with me on that one."
On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.
On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, News One Now managing editor Roland Martin -- a former CNN contributor who is now a recurring MSNBC guest -- charged that the Republican party is the "greatest threat to democracy" in America and even invoked Civil Rights Movement-era racism as he likened Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte to a Virginia "segregationist" from the past.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's MSNBC Live, MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh fretted over Ivanka Trump wearing a "girlie" dress while sitting in for President Donald Trump in a meeting of the G-20. The left-wing The Nation correspondent suggested that the dress made the President's daughter look like "property" -- reminiscent of "patriarchal, authoritarian societies" -- and bemoaned that Ivanka's behavior in the White House is "frightening."
Howard Dean appeared on Monday’s MSNBC Live with Katy Tur and went on an unhinged rant against the state of American politics. He began by first stating that, “the right has been out of step with America for a long time.” This naturally prompted the question by Tur as to why Republicans then control the presidency and Congress. Dean answered by labeling far-right Trump voters as people “with guns that want to shoot up the place” and the NRA as a “white supremacist organization.”
