New York Times reporter Annie Karni followed President Trump on a tour of a Ford plant in Michigan and adopted a judgmental tone in her Friday story when Trump refused to wear a protective face mask in front of reporters. The paper also went after Mike Pence for his mask faux pas at the Mayo Clinic. But just how consistent has the New York Times and other print outlets been in moralizing over the social responsibility of wearing masks in public? A March 17 headline: “Here to Help; Cope With the Coronavirus: Masks, No. Groceries, Yes.”
President Barack Obama owned pop culture, sometimes literally. Remember how many stars pledged their allegiance to Obama during his first term? In return, President Obama acted like all of pop culture had his back, and he had a point. He slow jammed the news, shared his March Madness polls on every available TV outlet and even hawked his deeply flawed health care overhaul on Between Two Ferns. When he left office Obama signed up with Netflix to continue his pop culture mastery.
It was exactly eight years ago, Memorial Day weekend 2012, that MSNBC's Chris Hayes admitted he was “uncomfortable” calling fallen military members “heroes.” Appearing on his weekend show Up With Chris Hayes, the host attempted to explain why the word hero bothers him so.
You can't make this stuff up, folks. It's already been established that journalists in the media don't want to talk about the sex assault claims against Joe Biden. But one liberal columnist went farther, stating she would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden even if "he boiled babies and ate them.” According to an article posted by Charlie Nash of the Mediaite.com website on Thursday, Katha Pollitt of The Nation weekly magazine stated:
In case you didn’t get it yet, The Washington Post really hates Donald Trump. The paper on Tuesday published a Dana Milbank column that sarcastically proclaimed: “If Trump likes hydroxychloroquine, he’ll love camel urine.” The contents of the article made it perfectly clear that Milbank should seek some type of experimental drug that might cure Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The New York Post's Phil Mushnick is never afraid to tell it like it really is. Which makes him an outlier in sports media. This week, he tattoos NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as a pandering "Great White Father" who treats everyone like dopes, insults minorities and presides over the league's untreated illness: the criminality of its players. You won't see this kind of language on ESPN or in the Washington Post any time soon.
The cast of MSNBC Deadline: White House made clear on Friday that they were not fans of President Trump's announcement that he would like the states to declares houses of worship essential. Over the course of just a couple of minutes, Trump's announcement was ridiculed as likely illegal, being full of ulterior motives, and dangerous for public health.
ABC, CBS, and NBC all covered Joe Biden’s gaffe on Friday night, suggesting on the radio show of rapper “Charlamagne Tha God” that if you aren’t supporting him for president, “You ain’t black.” Between the three evening newscasts, there was 187 seconds of coverage, or about a minute each. ABC and CBS turned to political reporters, but NBC anchor Lester Holt dismissed the whole thing in 21 seconds.
Throughout the current pandemic the media has tried to blame President Trump's alleged slowness and incompetence for the deaths suffered as a result from the virus. On Thursday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC contributor Dr. Vin Gupta took it one step further when he alleged Trump is endangering people thousands of miles away in Brazil.
Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson began his eponymous show Wednesday with a lengthy monologue eviscerating the left and their allies in the media for their eager peddling of indefinite lockdowns and limits on American life with no expiration dates. Specifically, he called out the liberal media for their dangerous promotion of eternal lockdowns contributing to a massive, national mental health crisis.
Friday brought us another White House press briefing featuring Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany batting behind President Trump and Dr. Deborah Birx and, predictably, McEnany continued to impress (except the ardent anti-Trump liberal media). On new CDC guidelines allowing houses of worship to safely reopen and then the Michael Flynn case, McEnany rattled their cages. In the case of the former, she raised eyebrows when she informed the journalists assembled that they’re hoping “desperately” that “these churches and houses of worship stay closed.”
CNN journalists showed what they really thought about religious freedom in this country following Friday’s White House press briefing. After President Trump announced that churches and houses of worship were “essential” and should be allowed to reopen, a CNN panel of Democrats, led by host Brianna Keilar, reacted in outrage, calling it “dangerous” to reopen churches.
GOP senators are furious after a disgusting revelation that Planned Parenthood has been getting millions in coronavirus relief funds, a new report said.
RESTON, Va --- On Friday, MRC Founder and President Brent Bozell sent the following open letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding consistency in policing of satirical content. In part, Bozell wrote: "For the record, I'd like you to explain the difference between satire and satire. Unless satire by the left is admissible but by the right deplorable. But that would make Twitter a biased publisher, not an objective platform."
What liberals can’t achieve with the ballot box, they can count on Big Tech mega donors to bring to life. “Jack Dorsey, the billionaire CEO of Twitter and mobile-payment company Square, is giving $5 million to Humanity Forward” in order to “build the case for a universal basic income,” Rolling Stone reported. Democrat presidential primary dropout Andrew Yang made his mark in the primary debates by making "Freedom Dividend," or Universal Basic Income (UBI), his flagship issue.
