Chuck Todd and his NBC News Political Unit sounds like angry coaches in NBC's "Meet the Press: First Read" digital newsletter on Tuesday. The headline reads "Why aren't Democrats making life miserable for vulnerable Republicans on impeachment?" Todd wants more punch in the Democrat offense.
Could it be that the fix is in for Hollywood’s influence during this upcoming election cycle? Actor Robert Redford sure seems desperate, putting his TDS into an op-ed at NBC “Think.” The actor railed against Trump’s administration, calling it a “monarchy in disguise” and pulling out enough platitudes on the death of democracy to make the Washington Post cringe.
If you want a concise distillation of how serious the left’s impeachment attempts are on this first official day of hearings, look at the Drag Queen journalists on the ground at Capitol Hill. Just try to tell yourself — without wincing — that this is a “sad” and oh-so-serious day for democracy, as Nancy Pelosi puts it.
In advance of the United Nations “Climate Action Summit” on September 23, leftists are actively practicing their faith. Man has despoiled the Earth, and now must…confess to the Earth? Confess your ecological sins to plants? Confess to NBC News?
NBC News promoted a new idea to mitigate “rising seas:” build more icebergs with a fleet of ice-making submarines. NBCNews.com reported the “audacious plan” on Aug. 6, writing “Designers in Indonesia have offered up what may be the most audacious plan yet: they propose building ice-making submarines that would ply polar waters and pop out icebergs to replace melting floes.”
Our friends at Twitchy are having fun with the latest episode of Dubious “Hate” News – or #HateHoax – on Twitter. Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas went viral over the weekend when she claimed a white man told her to “go home” when she had too many items in the Express Late at the Publix supermarket in Cobb County.
Amidst the liberal media’s Beto-like treatment for Kentucky senatorial candidate Amy McGrath (D) and NBC’s hit piece against McGrath opponent and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper didn’t follow in lockstep on Tuesday, pressing McGrath on her long odds and her gross analogy comparing the 2016 election to September 11, 2001.
NBC was so desperate to smear Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a racist, that they searched his family ancestry for slave owners to make some sort of “point” as to why he didn’t support reparations. If that makes no sense to you, you’re not alone. In the article, NBC journalist Corky Siemaszko explained how he searched through U.S. census records and McConnell’s family tree through Ancestry.com and found two slaveowners in McConnell's distant family. NBC tied this finding directly to the Republican's opposition of paying reparations.
On July 4, The Wall Street Journal posted an article headlined "Trump, Social Science, and Media Bias." Richard Hanania, a research fellow at Columbia University, asserted "The media’s desire to delegitimize the 2016 election has created an extremely high demand for questionable work that can confirm reporters’ prejudices under the guise of science."
Big Tech companies say Iranian hackers used social media to interfere with the American 2018 midterm election. A group of anonymous hackers infiltrated social media sites in April 2018 to influence the midterm elections. According to prominent public cybersecurity firm FireEye’s report these fake accounts had a very clear mission to spread “anti-Saudi, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian themes.” Reuters recounted how Lee Foster, a FireEye researcher, claimed that many of these accounts had impersonated American journalists. They “had successfully convinced several U.S. news outlets to publish letters to the editor, guest columns and blog posts.”
A $1.25 trillion giveaway program to college grads and future college students deserves scrutiny, not praise as a “bold,” “sweeping” or “ambitious” plan that could “distinguish” Sen. Elizabeth Warren from her Democratic competitors.
Some news stories, including CBS and NBC online, bordered on being a sales pitch for the plan to forgive student loans and make public colleges tuition-free. CBS boosted Warren’s claims that forgiving student loan debts for millions of Americans “could supercharge the economy,” (even though liberal economists have contradicted that claim in the past). It even asked “What’s not to like?” and only cited one Twitter’s complaint it would be unfair to people who didn’t go to college.
Talk about a turn of events from a few weeks ago. MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews closed out Thursday’s show on a hopeful note that the Mueller report bodes ill for President Trump and his orbit and a love note for the news media being “ready to carry” the “truth” of “public servants” wanting to take down the Trump administration “into the grace of public light.”
