The latest episode in the Trump administration's long-running legal battle to impose a temporary ban on travel from several nations concluded on Monday. Its result, as described by National Review's David French, was that "in a per curiam ruling, the Supreme Court restored the vast majority of the Trump administration’s temporary travel ban — including the temporary ban on refugee entry." Much of the establishment press is nevertheless describing this major Trump administration legal victory as "partial" and "limited." Most reports are also failing to note that the ruling was unanimous.
On Thursday evening, CNN.com ran a story by reporter Thomas Frank which, according to a now-posted Editor's Note, connected "Anthony Scaramucci with (congressional) investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund." The Editor's Note tells the network's readers: "That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted." Further, "Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci." Then, in a Monday evening bombshell, Fox News's Howard Kurtz reported that "Three journalists (have) quit CNN in fallout from (the) retracted Russia story" — although it's possible they may have resigned instead of getting fired. What in the world happened?
Look at paragraph 6 of the dominant front-page story in Monday’s Washington Post. The headline was “CAUGHT AND RELEASED: As the border quiets, safe passed into the U.S. is still granted to some families.” Reporter Jessica Contrera buried the lede on Trump achieving something on the “border quiets” front. The Post pulled off a classic example of putting the money phrase just inside the paper. It's hard to imagine this wasn't manipulated:
"Along the border, the impacts of Trump’s immigration policies are visible everywhere: At the [jump to A-6] river, the number of people crossing into the United States has plummeted."
On Monday’s New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo confidently proclaimed that the Trump administration is lying about the GOP health care bill: “It comes as the Trump administration vows there won't be any cuts to Medicaid. That's simply not true. So we'll take you through the spin and the facts.
New York Times reporter Vivian Yee, who got emotional on a February front page over the plight of “undocumented” immigrants (no surprise, given the paper’s support for amnesty for illegals), penned a surprisingly sympathetic view of distraught Americans who have lost loved ones to illegal immigrants and came to support Donald Trump for that one reason, loyalty that Trump has returned in kind.
On Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, it was the place for demonizing Republicans as regular MSNBC guests Joan Walsh and Nancy Giles called Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan a "monster" and declared that the way Senate Republicans had handled health care reform has been "criminal."
Have you ever had an old grand-uncle that you haven't seen in ages and that you have almost completely forgotten about suddenly show up from out of nowhere? His return quickly reminds you why you originally found him so annoying since he is still obsessed about the same grudges upon which he still continues expounding in an aimless manner.
In this case it is former liberal talk show host Phil Donahue who appeared with Brian Stelter on his CNN Reliable Sources show on June 25. Yes, it was the same old by the numbers predictable liberal Phil and, of course, he was obsessed over President Donald Trump. Donahue went into some bizarre places in order to express his hostility towards Trump, starting with his obsession with people taking cell phone pictures at Trump rallies as we shall see in the following clip:
It was Father-and-Son Left-Wing Paranoia Day in the New York Times Sunday Review, as James Risen and Tom Risen penned “Donald Trump Does His Best Joe McCarthy.” Under the assuredly ominous date-line of Wheeling, West Virginia, the Risens ranted: "Trump supporters want to make America great again, to go back to what they believe were the halcyon days of the 1950s, which, ironically, was the decade of the fearmongering of Joe McCarthy."
Last this week, The Washington Post published an article saying that the Obama administration knew well in advance of Election Day 2016 that Russia was trying to meddle the U.S. election process but chose not to go public out of fear that many would think President Obama was swaying the election to Hillary Clinton. During NBC’s Sunday Today, Chuck Todd let his true feelings show when equated Obama not putting his figure on the electoral scale to President Bush not acting on intelligence reports about Osama bin Laden before the 9/11 attacks.
Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, MSNBC contributor and former talk radio host Charlie Sykes displayed the latest example of why he is the type of right-leaning figure that liberal outfits like MSNBC include who will join liberal analysts in bashing Republicans. Sykes took aim at Fox News supposedly not informing its Republican-leaning viewers on the nefarious activities of President Donald Trump, and likened conservatives to a "cult" that always supports "Dear Leader" and "Orange Deuce."
In Friday’s edition of liberal media double standards, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to cover new audio out of Nebraska in which a state Democratic Party official used an expletive to proclaim he’s “glad” Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (La.) “got shot” on June 14.
Pulitzer-Prize winning American novelist Michael Chabon rather desperately hates Donald Trump, In an interview on an Israeli radio show in Tel Aviv, he discussed how he woke up every day hoping Trump will suffer a “massive stroke” and be “carted out of the White House on a gurney.”
