MRC's Brent Baker tweeted out the lowlights of Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, socially-distanced but still socialist-inclined. Maher interviewed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and insisted Trump's coronavirus response is more of an impeachable offense than previous "trumped-up" causes like Russian collusion and using Ukraine to damage Joe Biden. Maher also cracked that Trump "isn't FDR or JFK, he's LOL."
While the first three months of 2020 were overloaded with news -- ranging from the impeachment of President Trump to the arrival of the coronavirus outbreak -- the liberal MSNBC “news” channel failed to attract new viewers and matched the same ratings from a year ago. The stagnation in numbers comes in stark contrast to the Fox News Channel, which gained 38 percent during the same period, and even the ratings-challenged CNN, which actually grew its numbers by a surprising 18 percent.
Just a few weeks after declaring she was “happy” that the COVID-19 pandemic had America “embracing” socialism, The View host Sunny Hostin turned around and grilled Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders for touting socialism as an answer to this pandemic. As the 2020 presidential candidate called in to Wednesday’s show, he was given a mixed bag of questions. The only consistent questions in the interview were when the hosts invited him to bash President Trump.
During a softball interview with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders on Monday, aired early Tuesday morning, NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers urged the far-left presidential candidate to use the coronavirus pandemic to push Medicare for All. In subsequent questions, Meyers teed up the Vermont lawmaker to repeatedly bash his Republican Senate colleagues.
If liberal fact-checker Lead Stories finds a fact that's inconvenient, it just ignores it. Lead Stories, one of Facebook’s official third-party fact-checkers, failed to fact-check the contentious Democratic debate between former Vice President Joe Biden (D) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on March 15. Lead Stories ignored the debate and its many controversial statements entirely. The Washington Post published an entire article of fact-checks on issues ranging from super PACs to abortion support.
Wednesday night saw crickets on screeches about how democracy died a little and that press freedoms in America were under attack when, hours earlier, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) didn’t just swat down questions about his campaign from CNN’s Manu Raju and another reporter, but he berated them with a use of the f-bomb.
Tuesday during CNN’s Super Tuesday election night coverage, liberal political commentator Alexandra Rojas admitted something conservatives all know, but journalists refuse to admit: They’re all in for Democrats this election.
Senator Bernie Sanders' call for socialism has resonated among many Americans, particularly young Americans. They've fallen prey to the idea of a paradise here on Earth where things are free and there's little want. But socialists never reveal what turns out to be their true agenda. Let's look at the kind of statements they used to gain power. You'll note that all of their slogans before gaining power bore little relation to the facts after they had power.
If polling is correct, then socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is on his way to a resounding defeat in Florida’s Democratic presidential primary. But that won’t stop the nation’s leading Spanish-language network from boosting Sanders to the bitter end.
A friend tweeted from Ireland (in time for St. Patrick's Day), blaming President Trump for the major decline in the value of stocks. This same friend credited Barack Obama's economic policies when the Dow Jones Industrial Averages approached 30,000. This -- and more -- is part of our political, economic and medical divide with mixed messages coming from supposed professionals, amateurs and people who don't know what they are talking about.
Like clockwork, MSNBC made clear Sunday night for viewers that, based on the debate performance (and their strong liberal biases), Americans should feel much better about the coronavirus coming under control if former Vice President Joe Biden takes the Oval Office. In the first hour, guests hailed Biden for having “nailed it” with his “pitch perfect” arguments (which consisted of him talking about lots of Situation Room meetings).
Bernie Sanders has been on the national stage for almost 30 years and his relationship with the media has fluctuated. Sometimes, journalists view him as a threat, a candidate that would surely lose to Donald Trump and must be stopped. Other times, his socialist views are exciting and captivating for these reporters. But if you go back to November 11, 1990, you can see that World News Tonight found the then-Congressman-elect to be fascinating and worthy of attention. Reporter Bob Jamieson told viewers that the socialist was “no fringe politician.”
