On Thursday's CNN Tonight, the show not only repeated the debunked myth that the Trump administration treats illegal immigrant children worse than the Obama administration did, but even one of CNN's right-leaning analysts added to the media myth that legal asylum seekers have their children separated from them without making the distinction that those who enter the country legally typically are not separated. The liberal news network notably ignored DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's trip to Guatemala earlier this week in which she implored asylum seekers to enter the U.S. through legal ports of entry so that they receive better treatment, rather than cross the border illegally.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid showed signs of being so far inside the liberal bubble that it's like she spent the last 20 years in an an alternative universe as she actually suggested that the dominant media were "enchanted" with George W. Bush and Sarah Palin because they spoke in a way that was not "erudite," but that Barack Obama was "disparaged" as "almost too erudite and too articulate."
On a special pre-recorded July 4 edition of MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd took the time to spin for former First Lady Michelle Obama as he recalled the day in February 2008 when the wife of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama admitted that she had not previously been "proud" of her country until she saw the positive reaction her husband was getting to his presidential run. Todd claimed that white Americans had misunderstood her comments which, he suggested, were actually just a "compliment" toward America.
On Tuesday's All In show, MSNBC viewers got to see the latest example of the liberal news network not only conflating legal asylum seekers with those who cross the border illegally and only seek asylum after they are apprehended, but also of putting all the blame on the Donald Trump administration for actions that were also taken by the Barack Obama administration.
Late Monday, after the White House’s official Twitter account called out Democrats for their positions on ICE and MS-13, some members of the media went berserk at the audacity of the White House Twitter going after senators for their policy positions. NBC's Andrea Mitchell even went so far as to claim that Trump was violating the law by doing so. However, archived White House tweets from the Obama era, revealed the media's two-faced stance on these actions.
On Saturday afternoon, Ken Thomas and Jon Gambrell at the Associated Press demonstrated the wire service's chronic resistance to recognizing genuinely good news during the Trump era. The pair pretended in their story about Donald Trump's Saturday conversation with Saudi King Salman that the President could only "claim" that Saudi Arabia has agreed to significantly boost its oil production in response to a tightening in worldwide supplies — even though as soon as Trump tweeted about it, the Saudi news agency confirmed its substance.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's MSNBC Live, NPR's Maria Hinojosa informed host Stephanie Ruhle that much of what liberals having been criticizing about President Donald Trump's detention of illegal immigrants is not much different from what was already being done during the Obama administration, in spite of the liberal media only just recently giving it attention. At one point, Hinojosa even corrected Ruhle when the MSNBC host claimed that children had not previously had to speak for themselves without an attorney in immigration court.
On Wednesday's Fox and Friends, FNC's Steve Doocy did something that one would not expect to see on the more liberal news networks as he devoted a segment to putting into perspective that much of the Trump administration's policies on dealing with illegal immigrants are very similar to what was done during the Obama administration, in spite of the dominant liberal media only just recently taking notice as if it were a totally new thing.
While some of the most notable commands from God are “you shall have no other gods before me” and “you shall not murder,” it seems that evangelical historian John Fea has discovered another divine decree: “thou shalt not vote for Donald Trump.”
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
On Friday's Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo again devoted most of his show to pushing hard from the left on the issue of the Trump administration increasing prosecutions of illegal border crossings. Cuomo and liberal CNN commentator Catherine Rampell again misleadingly claimed legal asylum seekers are also separated from their children even though they usually are not unless there are exceptional circumstances. The CNN host -- who has so far ignored congressional Democrats who have connections to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan -- gave a Democratic member of Congress a forum to accuse the White House of having ties to "white supremacists."
On Wednesday's edition of The Five on Fox news, Juan Williams passed off Peter Fonda's overtly threatening tweet wishing that 12-year-old Barron Trump should "be put in a cage with pedophiles" as "poorly worded." He also claimed that his fellow hosts were "taking delight" in the appearance of Fonda's series of threatening tweets, because talking about them "takes away from the conversation focusing on what President Trump did."
