For the month of February, 2020, MRC Latino analyzed coverage of the 2020 Democratic primaries. The results showed that Bernie Sanders dominated coverage on both Univision and Telemundo, garnering nearly twice as much coverage as the rest of the Democratic field combined.
The broadcast and cable networks were fairly lackluster on Tuesday night and early Wednesday during their Super Tuesday coverage, in large part due to former Vice President Joe Biden’s upsets over socialist Bernie Sanders. But at 3:31 a.m. Eastern, CNN spent almost eight minutes bashing Democratic primary voters as sexist heathens for not supporting Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
Adding another arrow to her quiver of crazy, radical feminist commentator and occasional New York Times columnist Jill Filipovic took to social media to disparage most of the remaining Democratic presidential field. No, not because they embody some of the worst values in human history, but because each of their skin tones is white and they each have male genitalia.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
Was Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s inability to identify Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador a limited Latino-interest issue or a moment that warranted broader coverage as a campaign-defining “deer-in-the-headlights” gaffe? The liberal media, hamstrung by soft bigotry and blinded by double standards.
In the aftermath of the fiery Democratic debate in Las Vegas, the New York Times queened Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s return to form, but provided a chillier reception to Sen. Amy Klobuchar. Friday’s piece, “Facing a Potential Last Stand, Warren Unleashes Rhetorical Howitzers,” played Warren’s attacks on debate newbie Michael Bloomberg dramatically, with her as vanquishing hero. But the paper insulted "largely white" editorial boards for daring to endorse the supposedly "centrist" Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
The Page Six gossip column at the New York Post has a new story of Chuck Todd's financial ties to prominent Democrats. Chuck Todd's wife has a direct-mail business that billed millions of dollars to Bernie Sanders for President when he ran against Hillary. Now, it turns out, Todd was renting out a house he owned to one Senator Amy Klobuchar. Just like the family business tie to Sanders, Todd hasn't disclosed his landlord tie when he's interviewed Klobuchar on his programs.
MSNBC wasn’t sure whether to react with approval or horror Wednesday night after the 2020 Democratic presidential debate. In the first 15 minutes, MSNBC analysts, hosts, and pundits offered debate descriptions ranging from “a presidential version of Survivor” to “the most expensive night in Vegas” to an event at “the Roman Coliseum” to “boxing in the 1950s.”
Andrea Mitchell took her MSNBC show on the road to Las Vegas on Wednesday to preview the night's Democratic debate. In anticipation for the debate, Mitchell and former Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri asserted that the downfall of Elizabeth Warren and the lack of early support for Amy Klobuchar is because of their gender.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan routinely decries complaints of anti-Trump media bias by calling liberal journalists the "reality-based press." Now she's suddenly feeling the pain of media bias....against a socialist from Vermont. In an article posted on Wednesday, Margaret Sullivan declared: "The media keep falling in love — with anybody but Bernie Sanders."
In its quest to find moderates or even “centrists” among the Democratic field of presidential candidates to pit against the avowed leftists, the New York Times must ignore several of the candidates’ actual voting records and public policy stands. The Times has found no less than four of the Democratic candidates to be not just “moderate” but “centrist.” The paper has termed former Sen. Joe Biden (lifetime American Conservative Union rating: 12.67 out of a possible 100), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (lifetime ACU rating: 4.67), former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg as moderates or centrists.
You know politics have gotten weird when a liberal New York Times columnist begs Democrat voters to abandon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in favor of nominating Michael Bloomberg to lead the Democratic ticket. Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman wrote a wacky February 11, op-ed headlined “Paging Michael Bloomberg.”
