The rollout of Senator Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) presidential campaign was immediately mired by serious reports sourced from former staffers that claimed the Senator was an abusive boss. When ABC’s Good Morning America questioned her on Monday, they avoided all the terrible details choosing instead to lob softball questions about her being a “tough boss”. But during Tuesday’s Special Report, Fox News anchor Bret Baier pressed her on whether she had ever “throw[n] a binder at anybody”.
Shortly before ABC downplayed the anti-Semitic comments of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) on Monday, World News Tonight touted Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) for throwing her hat into the 2020 presidential campaign. But while liberals of ABC were busy touting Klobuchar (and other Democrats), they largely ignored what Politico called the “staff horror stories” plaguing her campaign rollout.
There was a consistency in stories from the New York Times Monday, with reporters taking left-wing jabs against two Democratic senators who have launched presidential campaigns The profile of Minnesota’s Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar launch in the snow by Mitch Smith and Lisa Lerer falsely tried to pose her as a non-threatening moderate: “Klobuchar Enters Race With Appeal to Center.” The front-page Kamala Harris profile was consistent with the Times’ previous “The Long Run” series of pieces on Republican candidates from 2012, profiling President Obama’s potential Republican opponents. In all cases, the subjects were attacked from the left by Times reporters.
After announcing her presidential run on Sunday, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar was careful to choose a friendly media forum to conduct her first interview as a 2020 candidate on Monday – ABC’s Good Morning America. Predictably, the Democrat was treated to a series of softball questions from co-host George Stephanopoulos.
There are times that women complain about sexism in politics where they just sound ridiculous. Take the Friday night "Week in Politics" roundup on National Public Radio. Host Mary Louise Kelly was outraged by a Huffington Post story on Sen. Amy Klobuchar, expected to announce a presidential run. See if you can believe this complaint. Kelly claimed "I don't remember a lot of Are Men Nice Enough stories" in the 2016 campaign!
View co-host Meghan McCain was the only one at the table on Thursday’s show to call out their Democrat guest, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on her party’s failed hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. McCain also pointed out how that Senate hearing has hurt Democrat chances in the upcoming midterms.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota understated former Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken's history of sexual harassment as she asked Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar if she thinks he should run for Congress again.
With the breaking news that ex-Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been charged with tax fraud, who would be the ideal person to talk about it? According to CBS This Morning on Monday, it’s the liberal, partisan Democrat Amy Kobuchar. Co-host Norah O’Donnell eagerly wondered, “So, the question has always been about collusion and the Trump campaign which remains the open question, right?”
During the second break in day two of Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing Tuesday afternoon, CNN detected some wind in their sails as they swooned and congratulated their Democratic allies for supposedly giving the “testy” Gorsuch “a little bit more of a run for his money.” CNN found nothing to object to in the first break around lunchtime, so it was inevitable that they would concoct some sort of liberal spin to give Senate Democrats a boost.
CNN's Jim Sciutto clearly slanted towards gun control advocates during an interview of Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar on Monday's New Day. Sciutto contended, "You'd have to think that this would be the...political sweet spot on the gun issue...whetting everyone's fear — both parties...want to keep guns out of terrorists' hands." He also underlined, "...if not now, then when? When is something going to get it through?"
Does MSNBC host Chris Matthews give ANY thought to the structure of his interviews? In a chat on Wednesday night's Hardball with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) about her memoir, Matthews shifted from talking Klobuchar growing up with an alcoholic father to asking her thoughts on what it was like to, I kid you not, what it was like to work with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.).
As the Big Three –NBC, ABC, and CBS – continue to engage in, to borrow a George Will term, journalistic malpractice over ObamaCare’s adverse effects on the economy, they probably missed the development concerning Democrats who are calling for repeal of a tax which was embedded within the behemoth health care overhaul.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is ramping up her efforts to repeal the tax on medical devices that’s included in ObamaCare. The liberal Talking Points Memo reported today that it’s building upon a vote last month,where the majority of Senate Democrats voted with their GOP colleagues to repeal the tax.

But wait, there's more discontent from Democratic ranks, with Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus warning of a coming "train wreck" when ObamaCare is scheduled for full implementation in 2014.
