To see just how out of touch some in the liberal media are, look no further than Billy Graham. On Wednesday, world-famous Christian evangelist Billy Graham passed away at the age of 99. While Americans, former U.S. presidents and many in the media mourned his death, several journalists took to Twitter to celebrate Graham’s death by hoping he was enjoying hell.
In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, the liberal media sprinted to push gun control while vigorously waving a ridiculous school shooting statistic put out by the anti-gun lobbyist group, Everytown for Gun Safety. According to their numbers, there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. The only problem? It was bogus. So much so, even the liberal Washington Post found the need to call out them and the rest of the media.
The 2018 Winter Olympics were in full swing and Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and head of their Propaganda and Agitation Department, had bizarrely become a liberal media darling. Despite the fact her job entailed censorship and glorifying public executions, numerous outlets had touted her for “stealing the show,” winning “diplomatic gold,” being the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea,” and hyping the extremely creepy North Korean cheerleading corp.
Reality is darker and scarier than fiction.
Novelist Stephen King took a page out of his own books on February 1 when he decided to comment on Wednesday’s train wreck in Charlottesville. The train was carrying a number of GOP lawmakers was headed to a retreat in West Virginia. It hit a garbage truck, killing one person in the truck and injuring many others.
On Monday afternoon, CNN political commentator and liberal Republican Ana Navarro ghoulishly paraphrased a quote by World War II-era pastor Martin Niemöller to equate embattled current and former Justice Department officials to those murdered by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis (aka President Trump) during the Holocaust.
On Thursday, USA Today headlined the possibility, with an accompanying video, that President Donald Trump might "be giving a speech to a empty room in Davos" on Friday. It didn't work out that way.
Before Vice President Mike Pence addressed Israel's government on Monday, "13 Israeli-Arab members of Israel's Parliament held up signs saying 'Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine' and were forcibly removed by security as Pence started to speak," according to NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
On Wednesday, MSNBC’s AM Joy host and far-left charlatan Joy Reid found herself in hot water for claiming (thanks to the liberal site RawStory.com) that National Review’s David French should be ashamed of himself for penning a story excusing the prospect of nuclear war because “it will only kill Democrats and minorities.” Reid eventually offered a response that can best be referred to as milk toast, appearing to pin the blame on RawStory.com.
To mark Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, CNN.com uncorked a stunningly crazy piece by CNN enterprise writer John Blake about modern day lessons from King such as his supposed status as “an environmental hero” and the need to embrace socialism since “[h]e was a socialist before it was cool.”
On Friday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following open letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in reaction to the latest work by Project Veritas President James O’Keefe that alleged Twitter has "shadow-banned" conservatives.
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
Late Wednesday afternoon, CNN muddied the waters by blaming a New York City gym hacker/thief on a bizarre series of events that started earlier in the day when Anderson Cooper’s Twitter account called President Trump a “[p]athetic loser.” The freak incident furthered what’s been a difficult week for the network after Friday’s flawed Trump/WikiLeaks story that yielded zero punishment because, well, CNN wants us to trust them since they mean well.
