During a break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, PBS NewsHour correspondent, MSNBC political analyst, and upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential debate co-moderator Yamiche Alcindor bolstered her role a spin agent for the far-left when she explained away far-left Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan’s supposed quip involving President Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron (which she apologized for a few hours later).
On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS (also shown on CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour devoted a segment to interviewing the director of a film, titled Incitement, that has come under criticism for suggesting right-leaning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helped stoke up "incitement" that led to the 1995 assassination of left-leaning Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.
PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff turned to liberal pundit Mark Shields on Friday and said time may be running out for Democrats to impeach without interfering with the primaries early next year. Then Shields said something weird about Pete Buttigieg. It was a product placement for PBS. Buttigieg is a regular Mister Rogers!
In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
During Monday's Amanpour & Company on PBS (and CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour spent much of her show discussing the issue of climate change allegedly caused by global warming, and at one point negatively characterized word that there has been an increase in global warming skepticism in other countries as she asked her guest if it meant things are "getting worse" in terms of convincing people action needs to be taken.
The PBS NewsHour managed to find 23 seconds that ABC, CBS, and NBC couldn't find on Friday night...Another record high on Wall Street. They couldn't manage to add any context for Trump in their 11-minute-long Week in Review segment, as "conservative" David Brooks wisecracked the Democrats were killing it on impeachment: "If this were a football game, it would be 42 to 3."
On Tuesday's PBS NewsHour, the show gave a forum to former Barack Obama administration official Todd Stern of the Brookings Institution to complain about President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change. Stern called the decision "crazy" and suggested the country needs a "new President," all without any balance offered by fill-in host William Brangham.
The front page of Tuesday's Wall Street Journal offered a big story: "Dow Hits a Record As U.S. Outpaces World." Reporter Amrith Ramkumar noted the market hit 27,462, a gain of 0.4 percent for the day. "The rally brought its 2019 advance to 18% in what has been a banner year on Wall Street."ABC, CBS, and NBC on Monday night? Nothing. NPR had no evening segment. There was also no sign of this good news on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning "news" programs.
Democrat presidential front-runner Joe Biden granted an interview to PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff for Friday night's program. The Trump campaign sent around an e-mail decrying "Two Big Lies" in the interview, one on the allegedly "stagnant" economy and the other on his ignorance of Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine.
Liberal PBS NewsHour analyst Mark Shields sort of bumbled into the idea that the way voters prove they're not racist is by voting for Democrats. Many years ago, NBC's Bryant Gumbel announced they had a test to see "whether you're a racist or a liberal." Shields was discussing counties where voters picked Obama, but then switched to Trump. If -- and the if is what makes the bumble -- voters pick a Democrat over Trump, they "wouldn't be racists."
On Monday's Morning Joe, they devoted a segment to a new documentary on the PBS show Frontline attacking the Trump administration over the zero-tolerance policy that resulted in illegal immigrant children being separated from their families until the practice was ended in June 2018.
On Monday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour gave liberal actress Jane Fonda a forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming, picking up on the veteran political activist's recent push to hold a weekly protest outside the U.S. Capitol on the issue. The liberal activist railed against the fossil fuel industry, fearmongered about there allegedly being only a decade left in which to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and complained that American "individualism" is a problem.
