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After a week of President Trump and the media battling over an outdated and edited projection map of Hurricane Dorian, which had been dubbed “Sharpiegate”, National Review editor Rich Lowry humorously ripped that media on Sunday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.
ABC commentator and faux-Republican, Matthew Dowd has made a name for himself with the bizarre and false things he has said over the years. But during his appearance on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, he may have set a new standard for himself when he emphatically argued that President Trump had not been under investigation for two years.
With nearly the entire Democratic 2020 field sprinting to be the closest to socialism without using the label, folks in the liberal media were busy trying to spin their radical policy positions as something palatable. A great example of this occurred during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, when two panelists tried to suggest that it was Republicans who were the radical ones with Democrats supposedly as the centrists.
While more tamed than NBC’s trainwreck State of the Union coverage, there was still moments of liberal bias Tuesday night on ABC’s coverage that knocked the speech being delivered by a President with “real tension” and praised the Democratic response by Stacey Abrams as having “vivid language and energetic delivery.”
The journalists at CBS This Morning couldn’t quite believe that Chris Christie would disagree with the guns-drawn, predawn raid on Roger Stone. Co-host Norah O’Donnell icily deemed it “interesting that the former New Jersey governor offered a different take. Christie appeared to discuss his new book, but more than half of the interview was spent on the Stone raid.
