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.”
Twitter is getting ready to make major changes that are already being criticized as new ways to limit speech and benefit what the company CEO calls “healthy conversation.” Twitter unveiled new changes at the SXSW (South by SouthWest) tech conference being experimented within their Twttr app to be implemented into the main Twitter platform. The company hasmet swift criticism from conservatives like Lila Rose who blasted them for making the platform “more hostile to diversity of ideas.”
While the U.S. Senate failed to pass legislation last week which would require providing care to a baby born alive from an abortion, it hasn’t all been bad news for pro-lifers. The Trump administration issued a rule which removes Title X funding from organizations, like Planned Parenthood, which perform or refer for abortions on February 22. Naturally, the media pounced, with two particularly glaring examples coming from The New York Times and NBC News.
NBC News’s Think opinion website was plastered with hateful op-eds against the right Thursday targetting everyone from the Covington kids to Karen Pence. The Guardian’s Noah Berlatsky revealed the media's end game in his op-ed for the site, mainly that the truth of what occurred doesn't really matter--this was all about the Make America Great Again hat students were wearing.
Author Garrard Conley wants the film adaptation of his novel Boy Erased: The Memoir to inspire people to realize that controversial “Gay conversion therapy” is “torture.” The movie Boy Erased has been pushed by the media for Oscar nods, with outlets hoping it might be the next LGBTQ film in line to win major industry nominations and awards, after 2016’s Moonlight and last year’s Call Me By Your Name. The media of course has been running cover for the film and at the same time subtly bashing Christian parents for even hinting that it may be wrong for kids to embrace homosexuality.
It’s a sneaky tactic that the left uses in order discredit a portion of sensible individuals who disagree with their politics: push the narrative that those folks are part of a divisive right-wing mob. Conservative Catholics in this day and age are susceptible to this, even being labeled “alt-right” because they don’t agree with homosexual lifestyles.
On Thursday night and Friday morning, ABC and NBC newscasts refused to cover not one but two bad stories for liberal media darling and attorney Michael Avenatti as Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (IA) requested the Department of Justice investigate Avenatti and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick for their behavior during the confirmation fight.
Late Monday morning on NBCNews.com, former CNNer and current NBC senior media reporter Dylan Byers bemoaned how social media sites have become “a minefield for journalists” where they face “perils” such as “stray[ing] from reporting” and thus “opening news organizations to accusations of partisan bias.”
In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
Liberal meltdown over Trump’s new Supreme Court pick has been cataclysmic to say the least. NBCNews.com added to the hysteria on Sunday by labeling the president’s nominee shortlist as “extreme.”
Affirmative action, the fix-all-racism tool for the left, ironically has found itself caught up in a discrimination scandal.
TheFederalist.com's Mollie Hemingway appeared Saturday morning on Fox & Friends: Weekend to discuss NBC's botched "Michael Cohen was wiretapped" story, which is only the latest in a long line of establishment press stories subsequently requiring major corrections or retractions. Hemingway observed that the errors "always go in one direction."
