Throughout NBC Nightly News’s two-week-long propaganda project for the 2020 Democratic field ahead of the first debate, a couple of the candidates actually suggested some half decent and probably generally supported ideas: fighting drug addiction and ending the practice of regime change overseas. These ideas tend to transcend party. So much so that these were actually ideas that President Trump supported.
On Sunday, NBC’s Meet The Press will air an interview with President Donald Trump, conducted by the network’s political director, Chuck Todd. While Todd’s interviews with 2020 Democratic contenders have consisted largely of challenges from the left interspersed with the odd softball, Trump is unlikely to receive the same friendly treatment.
Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t really try to be funny these days. His main point is to let you know just how much he hates Donald Trump and looks down on the types of people who would vote for the president. That was the case on Jimmy Kimmel Live,Tuesday evening, when Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar was a guest, and most of what they joked about was how terrible Donald Trump is, and the host went so far as to wonder whether the Commander in Chief is actually unstable or “crazy.”
CNN’s hysterical ratings trouble continued on Sunday evening when a Fox News Channel town hall featuring presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg pulled twice the numbers of a similar event held on March 10 with the Democrat mayor of South Bend, Ind., on the channel that flaunts itself as the “Most Trusted Name in News.” As if that wasn’t bad enough, Fox News also had an average of 1.1 million viewers during the 7 p.m. hour while CNN Newsroom and Kasie DC on MSNBC and hosted by Kasie Hunt -- combined -- fell short of that total.
Friday on The View, co-host Joy Behar practically begged her guest, 2020 presidential candidate Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), to impeach President Trump. Behar fretted over the Treasury Department not handing over Trump’s tax returns, and the subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. as examples of the administration skirting law and order. Along the way she made some false claims, as is typical of hosts on The View.
During an interview on Friday’s New Day with Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota falsely claimed that Democrats support extreme, late-term abortions so close to a woman’s due date, including comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) that have been seen by many as promoting infanticide.
2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar appeared on The View Friday and was largely handled with kid gloves. Only co-host Meghan McCain grilled the Democrat on her party’s radical support for abortion. But she was immediately saved from answering any hard questions on the matter from McCain’s liberal co-hosts.
While the number of candidates in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary continues to grow, one of the most controversial issues liberals face is whether or not to participate in a town hall conducted by the Fox News Channel. However, California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell claimed on Wednesday that the network -- which dominates the ratings among cable news channels -- had rejected his request to take part in another town hall on FNC.
Even though the 2020 presidential election is still more than 16 months away, liberal Elizabeth Warren sought to stake out a position among far-left primary voters and journalists with her Tuesday post attacking the Fox News Channel in snubbing the network's invitation for a town hall because the cable channel is a “hate-for-profit racket” -- even though she’s “running a campaign to reach all Americans.”
The co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Friday eagerly plotted strategy with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar. They also helpfully ignored the reports that the Senator is an abusive boss who treats people terribly. Speaking of Attorney General William Barr and the Mueller report, Norah O’Donnell marveled, “You heard the Speaker of the House accuse the attorney general of a crime. What's the remedy?”
The journalists on CBS This Morning, Thursday, were excited by the Democratic grilling of Attorney General William Barr. After speculating about whether Barr would be held in contempt of Congress, analyst Rikki Klieman praised Klobuchar’s attacks on the AG as very effective: “I thought Amy Klobuchar gets an A-plus because she had a goal in her questions and she got to it.”
Monday night was truly a marathon for CNN as they aired five back-to-back town halls with Democratic 2020 candidates. Yet, despite it being only one day after the massive coordinated terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by Islamic extremists that mainly targeted Christians with almost 300 dead and 500 injured, CNN offered zero questions about anti-Christian bigotry. Instead, CNN asked those candidates eight combined questions on impeaching President Trump.
