If you are a Democrat candidate for an important office, you really have to mess up bad for CNN's Inside Politics to declare your candidacy a "disaster." Such was the case on Thursday when host John King brought up how declared Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate from Kentucky running against Mitch McConnell flip-flopped on whether she would have supported the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
The leftist media seeks to vilify those who support conservative ideals and glorify all who oppose them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), has felt the wrath of the press for decades so it’s not surprising that the liberal media are pulling out all the stops for his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath.
Amidst the liberal media’s Beto-like treatment for Kentucky senatorial candidate Amy McGrath (D) and NBC’s hit piece against McGrath opponent and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper didn’t follow in lockstep on Tuesday, pressing McGrath on her long odds and her gross analogy comparing the 2016 election to September 11, 2001.
As Logan Dobson pointed out on Twitter, it’s been all hands on deck in the last 24 hours for NBC has partnered with its journalists and platforms (including MSNBC) to give former Marine and failed Kentucky congressional candidate Amy McGrath (D) the full Beto O’Rourke treatment in conjunction with her campaign Tuesday morning against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
If this doesn't constitute an in-kind campaign contribution, what in the heck would? Today's Morning Joe devoted an 11-minute segment to promoting the candidacy of Amy McGrath, a Democrat who has announced her candidacy to run for the US Senate seat from Kentucky against Mitch McConnell. Even before McGrath appeared, Morning Joe ran the entirety of her minute-long announcement ad. And in ending the interminable segment, the panel repeatedly pushed people to McGrath's website, suggesting that they donate.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
ABC journalists on election night gushed over Beto O’Rourke as the second coming of Bobby Kennedy, and as a Democrat who had “electrified” Texas. Meanwhile, as Republicans pulled ahead in Florida, Tennessee and Indiana Senate races, former Democratic operative turned journalist George Stephanopoulos admitted this has been a “disappointing night” for Democrats “so far.”
With just two days to go until the polls closed on the midterm elections, Republicans were working hard to get out their base and liberal media were working hard to get out the Democratic Party’s base. During the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America, they touted President Trump’s job approval rating slipping to 40 percent. Despite that good news to them, co-anchor Dan Harris was seemingly dismayed as he turned to Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos, asking: “why is this not a blowout?”
All three network morning shows on Wednesday celebrated “history being made” and “progress” after female Democratic candidates won primaries in several states on Tuesday. The broadcasts were particularly enthralled by African American state legislator Stacey Abrams winning Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and openly gay former sheriff Lupe Valdez winning the same contest in the state of Texas.
The November 10 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea is an unusual one. Titled “Making a Big Bang,” for once anti-Republican political discourses are not the goal of every single segment. The show is almost bearable. Then the last two segments happen.
