While observing World Press Freedom Day on May 3, MSNBC aired an advertisement encouraging viewers to watch not just that liberal channel, but also follow more than 25 other left-leaning sources and newspapers while not mentioning Fox, the most-watched news network on cable TV. The spot, which was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), begins by stating: “Don’t just watch MSNBC” and concludes with the motto: “Read more. Watch more. Understand more.”
Media outlets don’t need conservatives for intellectual and political variety. They can just get... other liberals. That’s the argument put forward on New York magazine's website, Sunday. Writer Eric Levitz argued that because some conservatives tried — and failed — to stop Trump from obtaining the GOP nomimation in 2016, their ideas are irrelevant.
Did you know that Tom Arnold will become the new host of Finding Bigfoot? Oops! Sorry, my mistake. He will actually be hosting Ancient Aliens. Well, it looks like I made another error but perhaps I can be forgiven because Tom Arnold will for real act as the host of Vice TV's very similar The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold.
Following the resignation of Gary Cohn as top economic adviser, President Donald Trump selected CNBC contributor and former anchor Larry Kudlow for the spot.
Many liberal media outlets raced to attack the vocal free trade proponent who was the latest prominent person to join the Trump administration. Kudlow had previously served as an informal adviser to the campaign. They attacked him over his support for tax cuts and supply-side economics, as well as failed forecasts.
What should be the prevailing thought about a ten-year-old boy dressed in drag, strutting the runway at New York Fashion Week? Should it be seen as the epitome of fashion-forward, or child abuse?
On Sunday's Fox & Friends, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes assessed that committee's Democratic minority memo issued Saturday in response to the Republican memo published in early February as "scary." He also had harsh words for the establishment press, which has dishonestly pretended that the Dems' memo refutes the GOP's effort: "The media in this country is dead."
If the Democrats ever regain power, they will ruthlessly push to grant amnesty to all illegals in America in order to get their votes. Is that some sort of slur against the Democrats? Actually it is the dream wish of leftwing New York Magazine writer Eric Levitz who claims that that Democrats missed a golden opportunity in 2010 when they failed to grant amnesty to the illegals. He flats out states this sans any nuance but before we get to that money quote, let us review his January 24 amnesty fantasy buildup in Democrats Must Be More Ruthless — When They Actually Have Power:
The Department of Justice announced Friday that Rene Boucher, the person who attacked and seriously injured Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul 2-1/2 months ago, has been charged with a federal felony and admitted to the attack. Several press accounts are crowing that the DOJ's announcement proves that the attack was not politically motivated. It does no such thing.
Reporters continue to concoct reasons to complain as more than 2 million American individuals and their families have suddenly become better off than they were three weeks ago. Even the news that the nation's largest retailer is raising its nationwide minimum wage while paying bonuses of up to $1,000 to every employee, and that an automaker is investing $1 billion in U.S. production, haven't moved cynics who refuse to concede the unconditional positivity in all of this.
On Friday, New York magazine blog The Cut published a January 5, 2016 video of MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews jokingly asking his staff for water and the “Bill Cosby pill I brought with me” prior to an interview with Hillary Clinton. While Matthews apologized, this marked the latest evidence of inappropriate behavior by Matthews and the third story in less than a month with the first two coming thanks to The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey.
How many companies have to announce new tax law-driven bonuses and raises before the left and some in the establishment press finally stop calling them "PR stunts" or some equivalent? It's doubtful we'll ever know, because even though announcements continued well into this past week and have crossed the triple-digit mark with over 1 million employees affected, media interest in compiling or reporting on them has virtually ended.
In the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel.
