On Friday's PBS NewsHour, science correspondent Miles O'Brien blamed manmade global warming for the severity of the recent Australian wildfires, and talked up the possibility that Prime Minister Scott Morrison as well as the Rupert Murdoch-dominated media may be changing their climate "denier" views.
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, pseudoconservative pundit David Brooks noted that public opinion is moving the wrong way for people who want to remove President Trump from office, but he's "99.9 percent guilty" and Adam Schiff will "walk all over" Trump's new defense lawyers, like Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz, because "he has the evidence on his side."
On Tuesday's Amanpour & Co., PBS's Michel Martin interviewed Lee McIntyre -- author of the book Post-Truth -- with the two discussing perceptions that lying is more accepted from political figures than in the past because of the election of Donald Trump as President. Without any pushback from Martin, McIntyre argued in favor of journalists censoring the views of those they disagree with, including global warming skeptics.
Even Facebook admits the 2016 Trump campaign benefited from the platform. But the liberal media tries to interpret the use of a tool as something sinister. State-funded PBS thinks both President Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin worked to use social media against the Democrats.
At the end of the 3 pm hour on MSNBC, Ali Velshi brought on Michael Kirk, the executive producer of the long-running (left-spinning) PBS documentary series Frontline. Velshi highlighted a video clip focusing on Sarah Palin as an avatar of division in the Obama years...and never mentioned that in 2013, MSNBC afternoon host Martin Bashir resigned in disgrace after insisting she should literally be force-fed human feces. So who again was divisive in the Obama years?
On Monday's Amanpour & Co., PBS host Christiane Amanpour devoted a segment to allowing an Australian global warming alarmist to blame the more conservative skeptics in his country for the disastrous wildfires currently hitting the country.
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Al Sharpton repeated a study highlighted last March by the Washington Post that made the claim that during the 2016 presidential race, there was an increase in hate crimes in counties that held Donald Trump rallies, even though the findings were discredited as misleading last September by another study published by Reason magazine. MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian also cited the flawed study again on last Thursday's First Look show.
CNN International and PBS host Chrisitane Amanpour opened Tuesday’s joint program (airing live in the afternoon on the former then late-night on PBS) with two interviews in which she couldn’t have been more stark, going softer on an Iranian vice president than U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. In other words, it was par for the course with Amanpour.
On Wednesday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour pushed the left's talking points that Republicans have engaged in "voter suppression" to hinder Democrats from voting as she interviewed former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker.
Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by PBS and Politico was a rather dull affair, but one question regarding climate change from Politico chief political correspondent Tim Alberta stood out as particularly nutty by any reasonable standard. In back-to-back questions, he presses candidates on their plans to pick up and relocate the entire population of certain cities.
In his opening statement during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on PBS, businessman Andrew Yang took a few swings at the media for being untrustworthy and smearing good Americans in their pitiful explanations for why Donald Trump was elected president.
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).
