The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page “news” article on Sunday that somehow President Trump was losing his marbles in “rage,” going “beyond his often-untethered bounds.” Post readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state when he held a raucous rally in Minneapolis and said supposedly crazy things like the Democrats are carrying out “a brazen attempt to overthrow our government.” What is this attempt to impeach and remove Trump, if not an overthrow of the president?
While not in any way a conservative Republican, it’s amazing to consider how insufferably liberal former Bush administration official and failed McCain campaign hand Nicolle Wallace has become and such a reliable lefty for MSNBC. Tuesday’s post-debate coverage provided numerous examples of her progressivism, including her gripe that the debate insufficiently covered impeachment and voicing support for Senator Kamala Harris’s pleas for Twitter to ban President Trump.
When John Bolton first became President Trump’s national security advisor back in March of last year, the liberal broadcast networks were sounding their alarms to warn viewers of his “hardline” and “controversial” positions. But on Tuesday, they clung to reports that Bolton described Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani as a “hand grenade” running something like a “drug deal” in Ukraine.
On Monday’s edition of the noontime Inside Politics program on CNN, AP Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace used an odd word to describe Hunter Biden's exploitation of his father's last name to make money in foreign countries like Ukraine and China. She called it “confusing.”
Today's Morning Joe offered up another example of what we call "Sudden Respect," the phenomenon in which a person formerly despised by the liberal media suddenly earns its respect by doing something to liberal liking. Joe Scarborough has been a fierce critic of John Bolton. But suddenly this morning, Scarborough overflowed with praise for Bolton, repeatedly referring to Bolton as a "patriot." So what did Bolton do to turn Scarborough's scorn into such fawning admiration? Reports that Bolton branded the Trump administration's Ukraine policy a "drug deal."
During a panel discussion about the 2020 campaign on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, hosts and political analysts agreed that Hunter Biden’s interview with ABC News wasn’t doing his father’s presidential candidacy any favors and might even give President Trump more ammunition against Joe Biden.
Since Sunday, the liberal media have been having a Chernobyl level meltdown over an internet video of seemingly unknown origin that used a violent movie scene to depict President Trump killing political opponents and media outlets. Despite the fact that there was no apparent connection to the President, and his Press Secretary says he didn’t even see it, NBC Nightly News tried desperately to tie it to him in some way.
CNN was among the most outraged critics of a distasteful meme using the extremely distasteful mass-murder scene from the 2015 Kingsman movie, with Donald Trump killing Democrats and the press (logos over the face). CNN's PR account on Twitter demanded everyone in Trump-land must "denounce it immediately in the strongest possible terms." A meme suggesting the mass murder of the media is not funny. But neither are all the angry messages of Trump-haters playing up violence against Donald Trump. CNN hasn't had a consistent record of denouncing those in the "strongest possible terms."
On Sunday evening and Monday morning, network broadcasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS celebrated Joe Biden “fighting back” against President Trump’s efforts to “weaponize” suspicious foreign business deals by the former Vice President’s son. Reporters also touted Hunter Biden’s pledge to quit the board of a Chinese-backed company as an attempt “to rob the President of a key talking point.”
On Friday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, host Chuck Todd offered a pompous commentary on how he was refusing to show what he thought was the worst of President Trump's Thursday night rally in Minneapolis. Todd made it sound like it was beyond the pale to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar, or Hunter Biden. Andrew Klavan tweeted "I for one feel so safe now that@chucktodd is protecting me from hearing the news."
The latest New York Times Sunday Review was graced by Justin Gillis, who served as chief environmental reporter for the paper until late 2017 and is now a contributing opinion writer free to spout in even more partisan and hysterical tones about the “troglodytes” and dangerous deniers who don’t see impending climate catastrophe: “Our Climate Future Has Arrived.” The online headline deck was a call to vote Democrat: “Fire, Floods and Power Outages: Our Climate Future Has Arrived -- The most urgent imperative now is to turn our fear and frustration into votes.” The tone was confidently alarmist: "Now we suffer the consequences."
