Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ Facebook watch platform continues to take a hard stance in support for liberal policy items. A recent instance of “Real America” continues to push an extreme position on abortion. This brief segment captured the essence of Ramos’ coverage of abortion; pro-lifers are cast as extremists, and those who favor abortion are cast as brave defenders of our fundamental freedoms.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday repeated a nasty quote about Mike Pompeo, deriding the Secretary of State as a “heat-seeking missile for Trump’s” ass. King interviewed Pompeo for Tuesday’s show and parroted the vulgar comment from a New Yorker piece. She regurgitated, “One former American ambassador who shall not be named, this is delicate, describes you like ‘a heat-seeking missile for Trump's bottom.’ Except he used the other word.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough covers for the false and defamatory tweets made by Democrat presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, who accused a policeman in Ferguson, MO of having "murdered" Michael Brown. Scarborough cryptically says: "there, there, uh, were a few, uh, members, uh, a few members of the US Senate that, uh, tweeted some things, uh, about Ferguson that were not borne out by video evidence or by Eric Holder."
As the abortion fight intensifies, with Planned Parenthood withdrawing from Title X government funding, and multiple abortion restrictions going into several states’ law in January, pro-choice advocates’ hysteria is at a fever pitch. You know the kind of hysteria that isn’t satisfied with viewing abortion as a necessary evil, but insists on calling the murderous procedure a facilitator of “great joys” in a career-driven woman’s life. That’s what Alyssa Milano is insisting, and it raises the question: what exactly is Milano’s career? But we digress.
Facebook released its official report about accusations of bias from conservatives — only it bears no resemblance to the similar audit it did for the left. The company didn’t actually admit conservative concerns about censorship were valid in the new report.
The journalists at CNN and NBC this weekend scoffed at the idea that one would blame the perpetrator of a mass shooting instead of the gun itself. First, NBC dismissed this simply as a talking point of “gun control opponents.” Then, CNN mocked the idea of personal responsibility, comparing guns to the opioid crisis.
Snopes official Twitter tweeted an article titled “Study: Too Many People Think Satirical News Is Real” and wrote that “stories published by The Babylon Bee were among the most shared factually inaccurate content in almost every survey of this research.” In this August 16 post, they were well aware that Babylon Bee is a satire website but have switched tactics to instead claim satirical news can be dangerous, saying “In a news cycle full of clownish characters and outrageous rhetoric, it’s no wonder satire isn’t fully registering with a lot of readers.”
In just three nights of coverage, ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts spent more than 11 minutes talking about the threat of recession and economic worries mostly tied to one economic signal. The main reason for concern was that the yield on a particular short-term versus long-term Treasury bond inverted (generally long-term bonds have higher yields) and spooked investors on Aug. 14. This sent the Dow down by more than 800 points.
As Apple plans to launch its new streaming service this fall, the tech company released a new trailer for one of the flagship series that will be featured on Apple TV+. The Morning Show depicts a fictional network broadcast being thrown into turmoil following the firing of a longtime anchor over allegations of sexual misconduct. Many have noticed the obvious parallels to the 2017 Matt Lauer scandal at NBC’s Today show.
CNN host Don Lemon joined his liberal panelists in ganging up on his one conservative guest on Monday night’s CNN Tonight over the idea that the economy was doing well. Rob Astorino of President Trump’s re-election campaign argued that the media was pushing a false narrative put out by Democrats that a recession was near, but the economy was actually stable. But the liberals at CNN insisted he was wrong, with one analyst even calling that idea a conservative “conspiracy.”
On Tuesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and other conservative leaders released a letter calling on Google to explain reports and allegations that the search engine is attempting to block conservative sites and exclude voices that don’t fit the liberal narrative. (A similar letter has also been sent to members of Congress, asking them to investigate.) The letter to Google can be found, in its entirety, below:
During the controversy surrounding Israel's decision to bar Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar into their country, most of the media focus was on President Trump and his tweets on the subject. The media condemned him for violating the tradition that stated that politics stops at the water's edge. The notion that politics stop's at the water's edge has never been as sacred as the media hyped it up to be and Monday's edition of CNN Newsroom proved just that when they sent Clarissa Ward to Iran for no other purpose than to find some "every day Iranians" who would tell them what they wanted to hear.
Forget 1776 and all that: The New York Times wants to "reframe" your benighted understanding of the nation's founding, which they date to 1619, when the original sin of slavery first began to spread, as the first Africans were brought to North America as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times is primed to put slavery in the center of the American story, and redefine capitalism as slavery while they’re at it. The first salvo came in the special edition of the Sunday Magazine, stuffed with left-wing opinions, from the economy to junk food to medical care to the political system and traffic jams in Atlanta, with verything tied back to slavery.
On Monday morning, CNN's New Day show continued its crusade for more gun control as it not only excluded conservatives from taking part in its panel discussions on the matter, but it actually utilized the all-liberal foursome of Andrew Gillum, Bakari Sellers, April Ryan, and Angela Rye to discuss the issue not only during its first hour, but again during the third hour of the three-hour show.
Just when it seemed that the #MeToo movement had faded into the background, one of the many men taken down by the scandal has attempted to return to the spotlight, a move that has enraged several victims of sexual harassment charges. Mark Halperin, a former contributor to MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, has drawn fire for writing a new political book -- entitled How to Beat Trump: America’s Top Political Strategists on What It Will Take -- that is causing many women to ignore apologies for his previous behavior and call his book “a slap in the face to all women that he has victimized.”
