Following NBC’s hostile coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union address and fawning over a “strong” Democratic response from Stacey Abrams Tuesday night, the network decided to get reaction from the far left as it invited on socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a softball chat about her radical views.
Morning Joe, during today's SOTU discussion, manages to blame President Trump for the late-term abortion/infanticide bills that Dem legislatures have recently adopted. For good measure, the show even blames the prez for the Dems' socialist surge. AOC? Trump's fault!
With a stacked panel of liberals, CNN was firing on all cylinders as the network for The Resistance on Tuesday night ahead of the President’s State of the Union address. In conjunction with that, AC360 featured a soft interview by chief political correspondent Dana Bash of liberal firebrand and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her guest/far-left activist who was caught on CNN cameras in the fall berating then-Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
As far-left film maker Michael Moore made guest appearances this past week, on two occasions he spread provably false information as he wrongly claimed that a Fox News poll found that 70 percent of Americans support raising the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent as advocated by New York Democratic Congresswoman and self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, appearing on Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, he declared that he wished she could be the next Democratic presidential nominee.
In an apparent follow-up to last Sunday’s praise for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter revisited the freshman Congresswoman during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” to gush about how she has “true online power” and there was “no doubt about it”.
While all but ignoring the liberal media’s massive screw-up with the smearing of the Covington Kids, CNN media reporter and “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter took time out of the show to tout how Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez utilized social media to spread her falsehoods and socialist propaganda. And, of course, the all-female liberal panel was happy to oblige by singing her praises and suggesting that fact-checks against her were somehow sexist.
The major media have gone gaga over the number of women newly elected to Congress and those announcing their run for the White House in 2020, with more female candidates likely to follow suit. But media's bias -- one of many -- is revealed in their focus on mostly liberal women with barely a mention, if they are mentioned at all, of women who are conservative. Reporters, commentators and hosts on major networks, and including some cable outlets, speak of “women's issues,” as if all women think, or should think, alike.
Media sensation Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. says billionaires are not a “moral outcome” in society.
Far-left author and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates interviewed Ocasio-Cortez on Jan. 21, and asked, “Do we live in a moral world that allows for billionaires? Is that a moral outcome in and of itself?”
When the annual World Economic Forum opened in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday, one of the speakers was U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who declared that “a system that allows billionaires to exist“ is “wrong.” That claim drew a fiery response from Maria Bartiromo, who dismissed the socialist’s proposal to increase the tax rate on wealthy people to 70 percent, a concept the Fox Business Network anchor called “quite naive.”
Considering that journalists are already talking about a “Colbert primary” for 2020 Democrats, it’s pretty clear that the Late Show host has decided he’s now only talking to half the country. On Monday night, Stephen Colbert gushed over “media virtuoso” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, hyping that she doesn’t give a “f**k” about offending people. Noting that some Democrats have been less than thrilled with the antics of the millennial Congresswoman, Colbert cheered, “I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you’re from Queens, so, you’ll understand this question. On a scale from zero to some, how many [bleeped] do you give?”
Saying that he blames the Democrats as much as the Republicans for the current DC disarray, Tom Brokaw, appearing on today's Morning Joe, said, "you've got the young people running through the halls, who are the new members of Congress, who are conducting pep rallies every day." Brokaw described the Dems as being "driven hard by the left."
MSNBC on Monday defended one (young and new) liberal against the attacks of a veteran (and older) liberal. Over the weekend, West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin took a not-so-subtle shot at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying, “young people” need to stop acting like young people. Okay? It's time to do that.” He added, “There's a great opportunity here, now more than ever, for Democrats to be the non-stupid party.” MSNBC Live host Hallie Jackson played the clip and huffed, “So, youngs can’t young?”
