On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC host Ali Velshi was joined by NBC News international correspondent Cal Perry to discuss the current protests on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip. The two glossed over the terrorist group Hamas's provocative actions using the protests for cover, and highlighted left-wing Israelis accusing the Jewish state of running a "brutal occupation" without noting their history of bias against Israel.
On Sunday's MSNBC Live with Alex Witt, after panelist Jennifer Grossman invoked Martin Luther King's historic "content of their character" statement, TV One's Roland Martin, in a demanding tone, requested a "favor": "Please don’t quote Dr. King." Apparently in Martin's world, only a black person like him can quote King, while a white person like Grossman can't. To her credit, Grossman pushed back hard: "I will quote Dr. Martin Luther king every single day and you won’t stop me."
On Thursday's MSNBC Live, near the end of her show, host Katy Tur delivered a commentary touting the liberal spin on the issue of police shootings and race as she complained about White House unwillingness to intervene in the Stephon Clark shooting case. But, even though her colleague Chris Jansing actually acknowledged the day before that twice as many whites as blacks have so far been killed by police this year, Tur only cited black shooting victims as if it were almost exclusively blacks who are killed.
In a pre-recorded interview, MSNBC host Joy Reid gave gun control activist Cameron Kasky an unchallenged forum to suggest that the NRA "loves" school shootings like Sandy Hook and Columbine, and also left the impression that background checks might have stopped Columbine even though three people broke the law to supply Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold with the guns they used in the 1999 attack.
In the midst of Saturday’s so-called March for Our Lives gun control rally, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared with disgraced anchor Brian Williams to lecture gun-owning Americans about why they should expect to have “basic” restrictions applied to their right to keep and bear arms.
Between long cuts to the so-called March for Our Lives rally to broadcast musical performances by leftist celebrities and obnoxious kids pushing gun control while accusing Republicans of being complicit with school shootings, MSNBC would chime in with their own cavalcade of left-wing political advocates cheering them on. During one such cut away, disgraced anchor Brian Williams and Al Sharpton boasted about how the kids were taking charge of their gun control efforts.
Saturday was marked the so-called March for Our Lives rally where gun control advocates descended on Washington, DC to call for restrictions on Americans’ gun rights. Liberal journalists rejoiced as the event allowed them to put aside the illusion they were objective reporters and become active participants. MSNBC start the day off with Ali Velshi and Alex Witt attacking the NRA by claiming they didn’t want safer schools, shamming politicians who received donations, and dismissing those who prayed for victims.
On Sunday morning's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton lamely compared himself to James Bond as he likened conservative donors Charles and David Koch to Bond-type "villains" because of their support for conservative causes.
On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle continued their anti-gun activism as they not only promoted a website that helps investors avoid owning stocks that benefit the gun industry, but they also brought on a researcher to complain because guns have not been categorized by the CDC as a "public health problem."
On Thursday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle continued their anti-gun crusade with Velshi at one point taking almost three minutes to rattle off a list of studies alleging that gun ownership makes people more likely to die earlier. In one case, he made a claim that is easily debunked as he implied that the U.S. has the world's highest suicide rate, blaming it on guns, when, in fact, a number of other countries with more restrictive gun laws have higher suicide rates than the U.S.
On Thursday's Velshi and Ruhle on MSNBC, as the entire show was devoted to the school shootings in Florida, host Stephanie Ruhle repeatedly mocked opponents of gun control as she listed nine prominent Republicans on screen who have tweeted condolences for the victims with the MSNBC host noting how much money the NRA has spent supporting each of them. She went on to declare that a hunter who needs an AR-15 to hit a target must be a "lousy loser" and then seemed to make a veiled hint that those who resist new gun laws are "jerks."
During the A-block of Friday’s MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, White House Correspondent Kasie Hunt inadvertently put lie to the media narrative that the government shutdown in late January was not the fault of congressional Democrats.
