Tom Steyer, the billionaire liberal donor spending millions to try to impeach President Donald Trump, blasted his Democratic critics in a Politico podcast on May 29.

Steyer said many things in the Off Message political podcast hosted by Isaac Dovere — including comparing Democratic pushback against his impeachment efforts to opposition to the civil rights movement, said Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and others are “normalizing” Trump’s presidency and attempted to downplay his own huge political spending.



You know you're listening to National Public Radio when the abnormal is casually passed off as normal. Such was the case in the most recent NPR Politics podcast that was posted by National Public Radio on April 5, with a weekly roundup of news that runs every Thursday. NPR's Scott Horsley said border crossings are "kind of bouncing back off of an artificially low floor and what we're really seeing is illegal border crossings returning to sort of the kind of normal level."



More than 30 years after a relentless campaign of character assassination kept Robert Bork from a seat on the Supreme Court, one of the architects of that attack is belatedly crediting its target for his brilliance.

Appearing on the popular liberal podcast Pod Save America on March 28, former Vice President Joe Biden revisited his role in derailing Bork's nomination to the court in 1987 while Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.



According to one of the most liberal newspapers in the country, one of the most popular liberal podcasts on the internet will be getting more attention this year, thanks to help from one of the most liberal channels on television. The New York Times wrote February 8 that HBO will be broadcasting a special series of “Pod Save America” to air later this year, surrounding the 2018 midterms.

 


Late night ABC host Jimmy Kimmel touted his own intelligence and the need for comedians to be political activists during a friendly interview with liberal podcast hosts Crooked Media before a live audience this past weekend in Hollywood.



After losing the presidential election ten months ago, Hillary Clinton is still on the blame game tour, this time to promote her election memoir What Happened, which was released today, September 12. She continued the whining and pointing of fingers during her appearance on the liberal podcast, “Pod Save America,” which is hosted by former speechwriters for President Obama. 



What a difference a year can make if those 12 months are spent no longer working for MSNBC. In the case of Ed Schultz, it means he'll now occasionally demonstrate a capacity for common sense.

In addition to his nightly News with Ed Schultz on the Kremlin-backed RT (Russia Today) network, the ex-MSNBCer also puts out a daily podcast and YouTube video titled Ed Schultz News and Commentary. As was the case with most of the media, Schultz this week responded to Donald Trump's comments about Hillary Clinton's opposition to the Second Amendment. Where Schultz parted company with most other media was in his even-handed assessment.



Only a week after returning to the airwaves after deciding that even for a liberal she was too young to retire in her mid-50s, Randi Rhodes has staked a firm claim on the churlish end of left-wing commentary.

The ex-Air America Radio host, now venting via podcasts and a Kickstarter-funded website, let loose last week with what those deemed more balanced would consider a peculiar irritation.



Talk about timing -- a liberal radio host arguably best known for once labeling Hillary Clinton "a big f***ing whore" relaunches her show on the same day Clinton dodges prosecution after putting national security at risk through the use of private, vulnerable email servers while secretary of state.

If you remember Randi Rhodes, most likely it's for vilifying Clinton (and Geraldine Ferraro, the Dems' VP candidate in 1984), during the '08 campaign. The resulting uproar got Rhodes in hot water with the now-defunct Air America Radio, the same network that spawned Rachel Maddow and Al Franken, followed by Rhodes getting fired or moving on of her own accord, depending on who can be believed.



Best criticism this month of aspiring Scold-in-Chief Elizabeth Warren comes by way of former conservative turned liberal bullhorn Ed Schultz.

Ed Schultz is probably best known to NewsBusters readers from his five-year run at MSNBC until given the boot last summer. He also hosted one of the top-ranked liberal radio shows -- agreed, it's a short list -- for a decade before putting it behind him two years ago, though he's continued to post News and Commentary videos on YouTube when not spouting the Kremlin line at the Putin-backed propaganda organ RT, also known as Russia Today.



Politico’s Glenn Thrush – the liberal reporter who confessed to President Obama that he had “candidate envy” in 2008, since he was stuck on the Hillary Clinton bus – carried Hillary’s water in a new interview with Jill Abramson, the recently deposed Executive Editor of the New York Times. Abramson agreed Clinton suffers from media bias and “does get more scrutiny” than other candidates, especially male candidates. On the scandal over Mrs. Clinton’s private e-mail server, Abramson wondered: “Why is that a big deal?”



Looks like it might be time for Harvard to mandate remedial geography instruction for its students.

Following a grueling week of campaign coverage in Iowa, along with taking part in a friend's wedding, National Public Radio reporter Sam Sanders was told by his editors to take a day off -- and then get back to work by covering a Donald Trump rally in New Hampshire.
