Talk about an awful, no good, very bad day for CNN’s Reliable Sources host and walking Twitter ratio Brian Stelter. On Tuesday, Stelter peddled the arguments in favor of Jussie Smollett during two CNN shows, suggested Smollett will now go down as “the victim” in all this. And to make matters worse, Stelter took to Twitter and got ratioed into orbit by suggesting those still critical of Smollett should watch themselves because none of us were actually there that night in Chicago when whatever happened took place.
Wow, 370 pages of closed-door testimony from an FBI lawyer who alleges the Obama Justice Department told the FBI not to charge Secretary Hillary Clinton for “gross negligence?” The Democrat-controlled House shutting down the committee charged with investigating possible bias at the DOJ and FBI? Those things sound irresistibly tantalizing for reporters but for the Big Three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), it drew only yawns.
Just days after announcing that he was forming an exploratory committee to run against President Trump in the Republican primary, longshot Presidential candidate Bill Weld appears to have at least one passionate supporter in the media: ABC’s Matthew Dowd. Even after his fellow panelists on This Week made compelling arguments explaining why Weld’s candidacy will ultimately not go anywhere, Dowd still described Weld's primary challenge to the President as a “really smart political move” and maintained that Weld “would get 18, 19, 20, 22 percent of the vote” and force President Trump into debates.
CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.
A new nationwide survey conducted last week found that most Americans are now closer to President Trump’s policies than those of the Democratic Party on such issues as illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. “Americans want to show compassion for those that are here, but want much tougher enforcement of immigration laws,” according to a Harvard-Harris poll conducted June 24-25 with 1,448 registered voters. They also “want to solve the problem of illegal immigration, not keep kicking the can down the road,” former Clinton pollster and strategist Mark Penn stated.
Ever since Donald Trump was elected President during November of 2016, people in the entertainment industries across America have bashed the Republican official in no uncertain terms. However, on Wednesday, March 7, Armando Iannucci -- a Scottish-born satirist and director of the new film The Death of Stalin -- went farther than most entertainers in the U.S. have been willing to go regarding the GOP occupant of the White House, declaring him and his policies “quite menacing” and “chilling.”
MSNBC flashed some bitterness on Wednesday afternoon following President Trump’s first joint press conference of 2018, complaining that Trump only called on “conservative outlets” Washington Examiner and the Fox News Channel with only the latter one offering “a challenging question.”
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard had a Friday morning piece that called out The New York Times for “diss-mot[ing]” conservative talk radio host Mark Levin’s new book Rediscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Progressivism from the number one spot on their secret bestseller list.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is looking to target right-wing media outlets under the guise that they could’ve helped Russia interfere into our presidential election, reported The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard Tuesday.
The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
As part of its ongoing look at various U.S. Senate races, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News examined the Pennsylvania match-up between Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Democratic challenger Katie McGinty and framed the race as Donald Trump possibly dragging down Toomey while ignoring McGinty’s flaws and past.
For two months prior to the first presidential debate, the networks’ evening news shows ignored news of "very weak" GDP growth in their broadcasts. The Washington Examiner reported on Sept. 29, that the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a “relatively weak” 1.4 percent in the second quarter of 2016. CNBC noted on the same day that “The current expansion's pace is the weakest of any since 1949.”
