Well, the big lead story in Friday’s New York Times shouting “House Is Warned Or Russian Effort To Bolster Trump,” has been challenged by a national security official cited by CNN’s Jake Tapper. But don’t think the Times is done trying to resuscitate the Russia controversy as a cudgel against Trump. The paper reported petulantly on Richard Grenell, ambassador to Germany and now the new acting director of national intelligence, in the slanted “Grenell Brings In Expert On Trump Conspiracies To Help Run Intelligence.” "Conspiracies" defined here as "justified concern over treatment of Trump campaign official Carter Page."
There were many news outlets and people hyping the validity of the FISA warrant on Carter Page based on the now-officially-discredited Christopher Steele dossier. However, few defended that FISA warrant with more fervor than CNN's Chris Cillizza as he lectured President Donald Trump how wrong, wrong, WRONG he was for daring to cast aspersions on that FISA warrant.
A few weeks back on Life, Liberty & Levin, Rep. Devin Nunes boasted about his memo on FISA abuse: “And what we really find out now? Everything that we said at that time was 100 percent accurate. Everything that the Democrats and the media said at the time: 100 percent inaccurate.” The IG report backs up the Nunes version of events, and confirms the Adam Schiff/media rebuttal is mostly false.
That’s right, folks. On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC contributor and former Obama administration lackey Ben Rhodes bemoaned President Trump’s foreign policy as “fundamentally corrupting,” “not how our government is supposed to work,” and “a criminal enterprise...that...was not in the U.S. national interest” that’s unrivaled in our history.
There are times when it seems that obviously liberal outlets in the “mainstream media” get away with producing “fake news” without facing any consequences for their poor reporting. That situation will change after Thanksgiving, when California Republican Devin Nunes -- one of the press’s favorite targets during the “impeachment inquiry” held recently in the U.S. House of Representatives -- fights back in federal court against “demonstrably false” articles that have appeared on CNN and the Daily Beast website.
Not surprisingly, left-wing comedian Samantha Bee elected to open Wednesday’s Full Frontal by talking about her favorite topic: the impeachment inquiry. Bee apologized that her voice “sounds a little hoarse” because “it’s just because I’ve come down with a case of impeachment fever, baby!” Like many others in the liberal media, Bee presented E.U. AmbassadorGordon Sondland’s testimony as earth-shattering.
CBS Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett on Tuesday offered what amounted to an extended commentary about the Republican response during the impeachment hearing, attacking them as “repetitive” and for a “hatchet attack” on the media. In his opening statement, Republican Congressman Devin Nunes derided, “If you watched the impeachment hearings last week you may have noticed a disconnect between what you actually saw and the mainstream media accounts describing it.” He added that, with regard to past coverage, “the media lost the confidence of millions of Americans.”
If Democrats and their allies in the media are trying to convince the country that the current impeachment proceedings are not a farce, MSNBC's Friday impeachment pre-game show did not help in advancing that goal. According to the assembled cast of journalists and commentators, Republicans were "jerks" who were destroying the legacies of their family members who worked for past Democrat administrations.
The panel on The D.L. Hughley Show Monday weighed in on the impeachment push and the whistle-blower scandal that triggered it, making sure to trash President Trump and his supporters throughout their discussion. Throughout the rancor-filled opening segment, host D.L. Hughley referred to President Trump as “the most unexceptional man in history” and trashed Congressman Devin Nunes as an “ignorant a**-kisser.”
Like most other late-night hosts on TV, the star of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC has been relentless in his hostile “jokes” about President Trump. However, the weeknight comedian may have finally begun running out of comments against the GOP official since on Tuesday night, he went even further than usual by attacking two of his sons. Regarding the crisis at the border, Kimmel sneered, “If Trump really wants to put kids in cages, he should start with Eric and Donald Jr.”
New York Times reporter Nicholas Fandos has for two years spun in favor of the Democrats’ Russian collusion theory, supporting Robert Mueller and Democrats on the committee, especially ranking member (now chairman) Rep. Adam Schiff. He did so again after Republicans demanded Schiff resign from the House Intelligence Committee in Friday’s “Demands for Ouster at Explosive House Hearing.” Fandos’ revealed his apparent disdain for the Republican move: "It went downhill from there."
“We’ve looked at the top social media companies. Twitter always ends up being the worst of the bunch,” MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor said on Trish Regan Primetime on Fox Business on March 19.
