June 12th, 2020 10:36 AM

May 21st, 2020 4:55 PM
The hosts of ABC’s The View gave Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer free rein on their Thursday show to spin for Democrats on coronavirus relief, Obamagate and the 2020 presidential election.

NYT Lets Schumer Dictate Stimulus Coverage; GOP 'Seized on' Pelosi
March 27th, 2020 8:48 PM
New York Times congressional reporters Carl Hulse and Emily Cochrane gave the “tick-tock” on the Senate passage of a coronavirus stimulus package -- at least as told by Democratic Sen.

NY Times Lets Schumer Off the Hook: Dems 'Not All That Unhappy'
March 7th, 2020 2:31 PM
New York Times congressional correspondent Carl Hulse predictably shrugged off Sen. Chuck Schumer’s volatile verbal threats directed at two Supreme Court justices nominated by the Trump administration: “Schumer Regrets Content, But Not Spirit, of Warning.” Hulse generally gives Democrats the benefit of the doubt when they make nasty attacks on Republicans, and similarly shrugged…
Wow: New Day Blasts Schumer, While Finding Silver Lining for Democrats
March 5th, 2020 11:35 AM
CNN rarely criticizes Democrats so it was an anomaly when Thursday morning’s New Day panel blasted Sen.

PolitiFact's Amazingly Selective Schumer Fact-Checking on Impeachment
January 29th, 2020 1:43 PM
Criticizing the so-called "independent fact-checkers" isn't just about whether their fact checking is accurate. It's about which "facts" they choose to evaluate, and which politicians they choose to evaluate and how often. For example, in 2017 and 2018, PolitiFact performed 297 "fact checks" on President Trump, and just nine on Sen. Charles Schumer. They…

NY Times 'Fact Check' Strenuously Objects to Factual Trump Statements
January 10th, 2019 7:37 AM

'Morning Joe' Laughs at Schumer Going Sgt. Schultz on Rigged Primary
November 3rd, 2017 3:34 PM
Senator Chuck Schumer performed the political version of a Sgt. Schultz routine that was seen on today's Morning Joe. It happened during an interview by MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt for this Sunday's Kasie DC show. When the clip was played, the Morning Joe crew went into a state of high mirth, led by Willie Geist, over Schumer's much less than believable profession of ignorance…
The Option Play
September 15th, 2017 5:51 PM
What just happened? President Trump cut a deal with Democrats to pay for hurricane damage relief and raise the debt ceiling without getting anything in return, except the temporary avoidance of a government shutdown. How to describe this? Was it a sellout, or a pragmatic act? It's football season again, so let's call this deal the "option play." It isn't used much by today…
WH Reporters Advocate for Single-Payer Health Care, Push Hill Tweets
September 13th, 2017 6:11 PM
Wednesday’s White House press briefing didn’t feature CNN’s Jim Acosta, so his colleagues picked up the slack with lobbying efforts for single-payer health care, ensuring wealthy Americans don’t get tax cuts, and anti-Trump comments by ESPN’s Jemele Hill. Los Angeles Times reporter Noah Bierman got the ball rolling on single-payer health care, asking Press…
Thrush Hypes What a ‘Prize’ Trump Investigation Would Be for Clintons
February 14th, 2017 10:28 PM
On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush happily speculated that the idea of the Trump administration being hit by a special prosecutor (regarding the Mike Flynn fallout) would be “one of the richest ironies and perhaps the biggest consolation prize for the Clintons” following the 1990s and 2016.
New Republic Writer: Franken’s ‘Devastating Wit’ Could Hurt Trump
February 4th, 2017 12:21 PM
Chuck Schumer is the leader of Senate Democrats and, arguably, the current face of his party. For a narrower role -- congressional Dems’ chief Trump-mocker -- Graham Vyse nominates another senator, Al Franken. Vyse remarked in a Thursday piece that Franken “has largely shunned the spotlight” on Capitol Hill, but now he needs to “harness his talent as a public entertainer…
