Washington Post "gender and society" columnist Monica Hesse is a lot like her colleague Robin Givhan, the fashion columnist. It doesn't matter what their supposed beats are. They coo over liberal women and brutalize the conservative women. Hillary is a gift to America. Melania is like "a garage-sale lampshade."
Into a discussion about the treatment of the bodies of aborted and miscarried babies, the Washington Post brought an obnoxiously flippant parody piece purporting to support funerals for sperm. In other words, presenting us with an apple and saying, "This is a banana."
After taking a stand for free speech on several occasions, is Facebook now backsliding? Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to take a pro-free speech stand and allowed political ads without fact-checking as early as October 2019, and amidst pressure from the left, the Big Tech CEO has even doubled down on his pro-free speech remarks. But according to sources speaking to The Washington Post, “Facebook has weighed whether to label political ads to indicate they have not been fact-checked, rather than vetting what candidates say, one of a series of proposals the company has floated” leading up to the 2020 election.
At this point, it’s no longer surprising that the liberal media aren’t willing to give President Donald Trump an inch of positive coverage, especially when approval trends shift in his favor. A new Dec. 2 report from CNBC revealed that “Sixty percent of small business owners approve of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president.”
Liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus bashed the right as having trouble "accepting the facts,” on Morning Joe Tuesday. She was on MSNBC plugging her new anti-Kavanaugh book “Supreme Ambition,” which compares last year’s Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings to the present day impeachment hearings. In it, Marcus argues that Republicans were unwilling to believe “the evidence” against Kavanaugh, just as they’re unwilling to believe the evidence for impeachment.
The Washington Post has become the Mean Girls of the nation’s capital, going after First Lady Melania Trump’s Christmas fashion sense, calling it “ridiculous” and indicative of “aloofness.” Gosh, why would anybody want to be aloof from the bitchy high schoolers at The Post?
In the second term of President George W. Bush, former CIA agent Valerie Plame was the darling of the anti-war Left, including the liberal media. In 2019, Plame is still a media darling, as demonstrated by a Monday puff piece in The Washington Post. "Plame was hard to miss....She looks astoundingly good, at 56, as if the high-altitude desert air has preserved her skin since the day she arrived here 12 years ago."
News has just come out that 2019 NCAA baseball champion Vanderbilt University whiffed on an invitation to be honored at the White House during a celebration of multiple college championship teams last week. But in an unusual "pinch-hitting" appearance, the 2018 national champion Oregon State Beavers did a last-minute "hit-and-run" to the nation's capital to celebrate their title with President Donald Trump.
Meg Kelly of the Washington Post "Fact Checker" squad came running to defend Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from ten seconds of a negative ad.
The conservative American Action Network begins with a clip of AOC saying "This is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year." Then a female announcer adds: "Now, it’s crystal clear their partisan impeachment is a politically motivated charade.”
Which American president of the past fifty years has been toughest on the Chinese? The immediate answer to any rational person possessing the slightest bit of sentience would, of course, be President Donald Trump. However, according to Tuesday's Washington Post fantasy by their Beijing bureau chief, Anna Fifield, the Chinese government loves Trump because they are supposedly able to manipulate him by reading his tweets and easily bribe him. Yes, bribe him.
Reporters are supposed to cover both sides of the story, where there are two sides to it. Journalists trumpeted this principle in defending a recent story in the Harvard Crimson that sought to quote both sides about an immigration controversy. But in the real world, this principle is often ignored. If a reporter doesn’t want to cover both sides of the story, she just pretends there aren’t really two sides to it, and then quotes only the side she likes.
My goodness. The liberal media and their allies can’t seem to take a joke. On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted a photo with his face superimposed over Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa character in a shot for Rocky III. The tweet was a clear attempt by the President to double down on his claim that doctors recently told him he has a “gorgeous chest.” Another symbolic reason could be to compare himself to the epically tireless boxer amid the impeachment inquiry.
