During a live edition of the Late Show following Tuesday night’s chaotic Democratic Debate, host Stephen Colbert applauded the candidates for ignoring moderator and CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell throughout much of the raucous event. He also ironically warned that “you can’t listen to a TV person.”
Isn't it the job of the press to vet the presidential candidates? On Sunday's This Week on ABC, former Bush political director Sara Fagen said Bernie Sanders "really hasn't been vetted yet." But wait -- he ran for president in 2016, and wasn't vetted? Chris Christie just put it out there: The press doesn't want to do the vetting on Bernie. So much for our brave guardians of democracy.
With NBC need of a panic room on Tuesday night after President Trump’s State of the Union and CBS needing a thank you card from Trump, ABC came down closer to the peacock network. For ABC, they repeatedly harped on the “political” President honoring the “controversial and divisive” and “racist” Rush Limbaugh to what they deemed a slap in the face to the Tuskegee Airmen Trump hailed earlier in his speech.
A new Quinnipiac poll out Tuesday reveals the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump appears to be working against them with voters, with a slight majority now opposing impeachment. The hosts of The View were upset at this news and lashed out at their Republican guest co-host, former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie on Wednesday's show, blaming Republican “tactics” for persuading voters against impeachment.
Axios.com is the liberal "news" website that reported Team Trump would be investigating the media for embarrassing information, sending reporters into conniption fits. Alexi McCammond of Axios certainly sounded like a liberal on the Sunday panel at ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos on the fight over private health insurance. She nudged Chris Christie that voters should be told President Trump "wants to repeal your health care without a replacement."
After a week of President Trump and the media battling over an outdated and edited projection map of Hurricane Dorian, which had been dubbed “Sharpiegate”, National Review editor Rich Lowry humorously ripped that media on Sunday for their obsession with the story by suggesting they’re like conspiracy theorists “analyzing this with the detail of the Zapruder tape”.
From hoping the first Democratic candidate debates would produce a savior from the “cruel” “dictator” Donald Trump to condemning his “Guantanamo Bay” for children and then raining on the President’s Fourth of July parade, the following are the most obnoxious moments of media bias over the last month.
Former Republican Governor of New Jersey and ABC News contributor Chris Christie appeared on The View Friday to analyze last night’s Democratic debate. However, the liberal hosts were more interested in attacking him for working for the Trump administration. The segment ended in a total meltdown from each of the hosts, ranting and raving over how awful the president is.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday laughably argued that the former federal prosecutors who signed a letter accusing President Trump of obstructing justice were “apolitical” actors. Her argument was swiftly dismissed out of hand by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R), resulting in an explosive back-and-forth.
Axios national political reporter Jonathan Swan has the reputation of being the objective person in the room when he’s on panels often dominated by open partisans and media folks pushing left-wing narratives. In an appearance during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Swan popped a few liberal bubbles when it came to suggestions that President Trump’s tweets about former VP Joe Biden meant he was afraid. He also mocked the bluster of Congressional Democrats and their arbitrary deadlines.
Since the national consensus on the report by Special Consul Robert Mueller was that it cleared President Trump of charges he colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, the liberals at MSNBC have decided to focus on another charge: whether Trump tried to block the investigation of himself. One example of this tactic comes from Ari Melber, a former lawyer and host of The Beat program on weekday evenings, who on Monday claimed that there is “substantial evidence against Trump regarding the crime of obstruction of justice” and compared the situation to the scary movie When a Stranger Calls.
Members of the liberal media had epic meltdowns following Attorney General William Barr’s Wednesday admission he was looking into how the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016. Despite the fact former FBI Director James Comey admitted the campaign was surveilled, ABC host George Stephanopoulos insisted that it somehow wasn’t really “spying”, during Sunday’s This Week. But the Clinton lackey was swiftly schooled by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
