In a fawning, nearly three-minute long report on NBC’s Today show, correspondent Sheinelle Jones touted Sex and the City actress and “progressive activist” Cynthia Nixon announcing her candidacy for New York governor, providing a primary challenge to incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.
A week ago, as seen in a video which gained some national attention on Monday, New York Congressman Thomas Suozzi, answering a constituent's question about President Donald Trump, suggested that "the Second Amendment comes in" as a factor "if the president was to ignore the courts." Eight years ago, the press treated a statement by Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle referring to "Second Amendment remedies" as a call for armed insurrection. Suozzi's comment, which on substance comes closer to such a call than Angle's, has thus far been ignored by the establishment press's primary gatekeepers and most other outlets.
While Stephen Colbert and CBS picture God as favoring Oprah Winfrey over Donald Trump for president, the liberal media don't find it outrageous when liberal Democrats claim God will judge your record to see if you were a "good progressive." Imagine a Mike Pence saying God would ask if you were a "solid conservative," and you can see the double standard. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo used his view of Heaven to explain why he is a better choice for that office than fellow Democrat Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City.
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday whined about the impact that the new Republican tax law will have on blue states, singling out New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California. Yet, incredibly, reporter Alex Wagner’s entire report managed to never mention that these states have the highest taxes in the country and are wildly in debt.
One reason Democrats seem so fixated on importing illegal immigrants and allowing their children to stay and become citizens may be the exodus from high-tax and traditionally Democratic states. Anecdotal evidence is usually not helpful in determining trends, but when stories begin to accumulate and sound the same attention must be paid. Two friends of mine, who are longtime California residents, recently decided to move from that highly taxed state to states with lower taxes.
The terrorist truck attack in Manhattan by an Uzbekistan national, inspired by ISIS propaganda, was the ostensible subject of Max Fisher and Amanda Taub’s “The Interpreter” column in Thursday’s New York Times. But it was more of an exercise in trying to weaken the link between “terrorism” and radical Islam. The authors gain revealed their liberal priorities by fretting over even labeling such attacks by radical Islamists as terrorism: “This Time Was Terror. What About Las Vegas?” And a front-page story downplayed, in typical Times fashion, the Islamic connection, asserting "there is no single reason" someone would commit such an act, blaming "monsters inside" him.
Just hours after news broke that a radical inspired by ISIS drove into a bikepath, killing eight people and injuring over a dozen others, MSNBC was already out deflecting blame from the radical religious ideology behind the attack. The network’s terrorism analyst, Malcolm Nance, defended Islam, saying it wasn’t responsible for Tuesday’s terror attack. He even brought Christianity into the mix, saying that sometimes Christians were responsible for terror.
The morning after a deadly terror attack in lower Manhattan, journalists in the left-wing media couldn’t get their heads around a deadly attack that didn’t involve guns. Eight people were killed and several others injured in New York City Tuesday afternoon, after an Islamic radical motivated by ISIS mowed down pedestrians in a bike path. Liberal journalists took to Twitter, and some even used their news programs, to complain about gun control and call out President Trump for calling the act terrorism right away, which he didn’t do after Las Vegas.
On Friday, a lawyer for the New York Times, arguing before a Manhattan federal judge, claimed that the paper made "an honest mistake in posting the editorial" claiming that Sarah Palin directly incited the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in 2011.
Por fin Univision cedió a la presión, uniéndose a Goya, JetBlue, AT&T, la cerveza Corona, los Yankees de Nueva York, Coca-Cola, el New York Daily News al retirar su auspicio corporativo del Desfile Puertorriqueño de Nueva York. Pero, Univision al fin, no pueden darle la cara a sus televidentes para decirles la verdad sobre su retiro del desfile.
Se sigue desmoronando la edición de este año del Desfile Puertorriqueño de Nueva York. Los auspiciadores corporativos siguen huyéndole al desfile, tras su decisión catastrófica de honrar al terrorista convicto de las FALN, Oscar Rivera López, con el título de "Prócer Nacional de la Libertad" antes de marcharlo por la Quinta Avenida. Mientras líderes como Melissa Mark-Viverito, la Presidenta del Consejo Municipal de Nueva York, buscan aguarecerse de la respulsa a Oscar, es importante que tomemos un par de minutos para separar los hechos de la propaganda, para mejor entender lo que está ocurriendo.
