It took until September of 2018 -- 31 years into her House career -- for Time magazine to devote a cover story to Nancy Pelosi, and it was a doozy. Now Molly Ball is coddling Pelosi again in a second cover story. She "outmaneuevered Trump on policy," racked up "landmark court victories" against Trump's executive branch, and impeached Trump. Time even offered a gushy publicity video, complete with musical soundtrack.
Time Magazine is trying to put out the fires of hysteria generated by the death of U.S.-designated Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani. Apparently the death of the brutal military leader weighs heavy, especially on the consciences of America’s children, so Time produced a guide for parents who need to talk to their kids about it.
The media have a less than stellar track record when it comes to their assessments of heinous, murderous leaders. Such was the case in 2017, when Time magazine referred to the now-deceased Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani as “James Bond, Erwin Rommel and Lady Gaga rolled into one.”
Liberals in the media will often say that bias is in the eye of the beholder. But simply looking at each week’s Time magazine shows a stark difference between how the sunny, happy Democrats are portrayed and apocalyptic, often terrifying Donald Trump. It’s no surprise that the legacy media outlet chose teenage environmental extremist Greta Thunberg as the 2019 Person of the Year. But this issue of Time is no aberration. Media Research Center analysts looked at every Time cover since Trump took office in January of 2017. The magazine has portrayed the President as a dictatorial monarch, someone screaming with his hair on fire and a man literally in over his head as he anticipated drowning in the Oval Office.
The View hosts were grateful to get another opportunity to lavish praise on teenage climate crusader Greta Thunberg after Time Magazine named her their “Person of the Year,” Wednesday. On Thursday’s show, climate-obsessed host Joy Behar bashed President Trump as “jealous” of the “very smart” liberal teen, while her co-host Meghan McCain whined that she wanted the whistleblower to be "Person of the Year."
All three networks spent time Wednesday hyping radical Swedish teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg being honored by Time Magazine today with their “Person of the Year” award. Journalists from ABC, NBC, and CBS all praised the “deserving” “good choice” and touted the teen “taking on” world leaders while “inspiring” other teens to become climate evangelists.
Appearing exclusively on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning, Time magazine editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal announced the liberal publication’s Person of the Year would be radical teenage climate crusader Greta Thunberg. The network hosts were predictably thrilled by the pick as they proclaimed that Thunberg “embodies student activism.”
After showing little journalistic interest in trying to find out the identity of the anonymous government whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry against President Trump, on Monday, NBC’s Today show touted that the unknown bureaucrat was on the short list to be Time magazine’s Person of the Year. Half of the top ten list was comprised of prominent liberal figures.
Time magazine's latest cover story, for the Dec. 2-9 issue, by editor-at-large Anand Giridharadas, is a 3,000-word-plus excoriation of plutocrats and "manic hypercaptialism," and a celebration of Bernie Sanders and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's radical ideas to end it: “How America’s Elites Lost Their Grip.” Giridharadas wrote: "The choice facing Americans is whether we want to be a society organized around money’s thirsts, a playground for the whims of billionaires, or whether we wish to be a democracy."
Another multimillionaire lefty celebrity is pining for the death of capitalism and for some good old wealth redistribution. Avengers superstar Mark Ruffalo demanded an “economic revolution” on Twitter this past Sunday, claiming that “capitalism is killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
Given how journalists openly despise Donald Trump, it may be hard to remember just how much they loved Democratic presidents. But don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten. The November 16, 1992 and the November 17, 2008 issues of Time magazine, respectively, fantasized about having sex with Bill Clinton and comparing Barack Obama to Jesus.
According to a page on Andrew Yang’s website, his liberal policies include providing Medicare for all, fighting climate change, providing a pathway to citizenship for “undocumented immigrants” and supporting LGBTQ+ rights. Despite that, Time magazine on Tuesday failed to label him a “liberal.”
