MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell made an admirably even-handed observation Tuesday during the network’s live coverage of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on Supreme Court appointee Brett Kavanaugh. On Andrea Mitchell Reports, the veteran host remarked on the “very aggressive” posturing taken by Senate Democrats in the hearing, at one point admitting that the Democrats’ ultimate goal was simply to obstruct.
On Monday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur not only repeated the discredited myth that the Barack Obama administration deported more illegal immigrants than previous Presidents, she complained because Donald Trump supporters refused to believe her when she presented them with her flawed data during the 2016 presidential campaign. The segment she was hosting also included the latest example of MSNBC blaming Fox News and conservative talk radio for many voters not believing the liberal media, rather than the media's biased reporting.
On Friday afternoon, during one of the rare liberal media acknowledgements of Louis Farrakhan's prominent presence at Aretha Franklin's funeral, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell gave an odd underreaction as she cited it as evidence of an "inclusive group" being on stage.
Over the past couple of days, CNN and MSNBC have been freaking out over another Trump administration activity that was also done by the Obama administration which the liberal media only just noticed because they're so fixated on trying to find examples of President Donald Trump mistreating immigrants. Even though both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations sometimes denied passports to residents of southern Texas who were suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates that conceal they were actually born in Mexico, a number of liberal anchors have shown shock over questionable reports that such activity might have increased substantially under Trump.
During Thursday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, guest host Ayman Mohyeldin interviewed Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson. The beginning of the interview focused on Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, who has faced a media firestorm for saying that “we don’t need to monkey this up” by embracing socialism; referring to Florida’s economy and his opponent’s plans for it. DeSantis’s critics argued that the use of the word “monkey” was a racial slur directed at his African-American opponent, Andrew Gillum. One of his critics even argued that DeSantis should drop out of the race. Dyson’s reaction to DeSantis’s comments presented no exception the hysteria.
MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle displayed yet again why the media don’t understand the average American voter, in an interview with liberal billionaire Tom Steyer on their August 30 show. Talking about the continued support for President Trump and Steyer’s initiative to get him impeached, the anchors lamented how awful it was that voters weren’t ready to see Trump impeached yet, and cared more about his policy instead of his character.
Just when you think the media couldn’t sink any lower in their view of Donald Trump and his supporters they go lower. In the past month we’ve seen CNN’s Don Lemon insult Trump supporters as “people who will lie, steal, and cheat, lie to their mother” for their own political purposes. One New York Times columnist even suggested Trump would “like to” murder his political foes. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the past month from lefty journalists.
Chuck Todd just lives in his own little world, doesn’t he? The MTP Daily host on Thursday again lashed out at claims of liberal media bias, lamenting that “false accusations” against the press caused journalists to question themselves. Talking about accusations of censorship against Facebook and Twitter, Todd whined: “One of the mistakes we in the mainstream media made during when these false allegations against us for being biased for 40 years happened is we started believing, ‘oh, maybe we are biased.’ ‘Oh, wait, we can’t look biased.’ So, then, we created a lot of false equivalency issues.”
At the top of the 11:00 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi gave his left-wing guests free rein accuse Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis of being “blatantly racist” due to a poor choice of words he used in a Fox News interview. One of the pundits, left-wing SiriusXM host Mark Thompson, a regular on the cable channel, even demanded that the GOP congressman immediately withdraw from the race.
On Wednesday, left-wing Florida gubernatorial nominee and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum was treated to a softball interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that completely skipped any mention of his radical calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement or impeach President Trump. The Democrat also avoided having to answer a single question about the corruption scandal plaguing his city government.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, an MSNBC panel addressed the growing concerns about social media platforms censoring conservatives, after President Trump accused Google on Twitter and yesterday in a pool press spray, of filtering results against him and of Facebook and Twitter censoring conservatives.
Just when you thought MSNBC host Chuck Todd could get any more ridiculous, he sets a new gold standard for himself. If you were to believe Todd’s ramblings during Tuesday’s MTP Daily, you would think President Trump “just wants to rationalize violence” after he warned a group of evangelical leaders about Antifa’s terrorist-like actions. But in reality, it was Todd who was the one rationalizing violence.
