A boisterous crowd of nearly 900 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum on Thursday night for the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards. After the audience selected the most outrageous quote in three categories, the crowd singled out Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media for the ultimate “DisHonor” of being the MRC's “Quote of the Year.”
Monday morning’s New Day ended the 8am hour with a fiery back-and-forth exchange between host Chris Cuomo, CNN analyst Ana Navarro and Republican Senator from Arizona, Steve Montenegro, over President Trump’s pardoning of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio this past weekend. The CNN host actually began by suggesting Trump “used” Hurricane Harvey as a “convenient” “cover” for his pardoning of the controversial sheriff. After Montenegro claimed the controversy was created by the media and the left, Navarro angrily ranted she was not part of the left, citing her record of siding with liberal Republicans as some kind of evidence that she was a conservative.
Immediately following President Donald Trump’s fiery campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, CNN completely dropped their thin façade of an objective news organization. In the wake of the address, there were many cries on CNN Tonight accusing the President of being truly out of his mind and unfit to hold the office of the president. Host Don Lemon declared that Trump was “clearly trying to ignite a civil war in this country.” But he wasn’t the only one who was off the wall.
Continuing to show her childish behavior and pivot toward becoming a full-blown Democrat, CNN political commentator Ana Navarro declared on Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom that President Trump’s response to Charlottesville’s neo-Nazi violence proved he’s a spineless “coward” and “nincompoop” who’s “unfit to be human.”
Conservative CNN analyst Ben Ferguson was one of the first pundits to face liberal-media anger over President Trump's Twitter reaction to a vicious vehicular homicide against Klan counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday afternoon. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides — on many sides,” Trump said.
This past weekend a fan of President Trump took an old video of Trump participating in fake television wrestling, put CNN’s logo in place of the person Trump was pretending to punch and made a gif out of it. Trump then retweeted the gif, to the media’s dismay. Predictably, journalists took to Twitter to spin this silly photoshopped tweet as a violent threat against all journalists. CNN journalists took it the worst of course, but went overboard with the hyperbolic predictions of whatever significance a silly gif could have.
When it comes to "news" which might discredit Donald Trump or a member of his family, the modus operandi for too many in the press is, "Tweet and report first, ask questions later (if at all)." On Sunday, several media members couldn't resist falsely tweeting that Ivanka Trump will somehow control $100 million pledged by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to a World Bank fund for women entrepreneurs, thus dishonestly opening the door to utterly false parallels to the Clinton family-controlled Clinton Foundation.
American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent and newly minted CNN analyst April Ryan played the race card yet again in an interview on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon Tuesday night. Not only that, but she laughably denied that she was a Democrat or partisan in any way.
Thursday’s New Day on CNN started off the morning with a shouting match between CNN conservative pundit Kayleigh McEnany and three CNN liberals over Trump’s reversal of last year’s Obama mandate on transgender school bathrooms. McEnany defended the decision, while “Republican” commentator Ana Navarro, former New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn, and even host Alisyn Camerota attacked McEnany as “cruelly” “discriminating” against “fragile” children.
Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a heated debate over President Donald Trump not choosing Hispanic cabinet secretaries, moderate Republican CNN analyst Ana Navarro had a meltdown as she excoriated Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos as sounding "like she's fallen on her head as a baby" during her confirmation hearings, and attacked her support for allowing local areas to set their own policies on guns in schools. She also mocked Dr. Ben Carson as not being qualified to be secretary of Housing and Urban Development, wondering, "What is his housing experience other than that he lived in a house once?"
After Donald Trump chose former presidential candidate Ben Carson to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), journalists ridiculed the choice, mocked Carson’s beliefs and labeled him a “scammer.” Squawk Box co-anchor Joe Kernen anticipated the liberal media reaction on Dec. 5, saying, "Let's see, he's not a billionaire, so how's the mainstream media going to trash him? He's a -- he's just a loyalist. He's a doctor. Doesn't know anything about housing."
Moments after video surfaced on Wednesday night of President Obama doing the tango while visiting Argentina, the panel on CNN’s AC360 did little to contain their disdain for the President continuing to engage in lighter fare they dubbed “frivolous” and “shameful” in the immediate 24-36 hours after the deadly Islamic terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium.
