Within a half-hour of President Trump concluding Saturday's coronavirus briefing, CNN brought on Brian Stelter so they could wail in agony about Trump starting the meeting by berating the press. As usual, CNN painted the liberal media as "really crucial" in this crisis, and the president as a "very dangerous" oaf.
MSNBC allowed Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace to host their coverage of Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, predictably, she twice interrupted to rip President Trump with like-minded guests Kimberly Atkins and Steve Schmidt. In Schmidt’s case, he blabbered that Trump was “completely over his head,” “incoherent,” “mentally….unraveling,” and “rambling.”
The nation’s main domestic Spanish-language networks have largely refused to pre-empt their evening newscasts in order to carry the daily White House press briefings on the Trump Administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. At best, viewers receive piecemeal information that is filtered through the network’s own biases. At worst, viewers are exposed to outright fake news.
At the start of what would become a true tour de force, President Trump began Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing with a lengthy opening warning of mass death and a tough week ahead for the country as we fight this pandemic. As part of that, he spent roughly a minute excoriating some in the liberal media for “spreading false rumors and creating fear and even panic with the public” that’s “so bad for country” and “the world.”
One of the most disturbing tactics of “fact checkers” is claiming they can fact-check the future. Predictions are not facts. To declare a prediction is "Wrong" is political, not factual. AP's "Fact Check" team decried Trump "making a baseless claim of surging suicides if the U.S. economy remains mostly shut." They said "There's no evidence." That's because it's in the future! But experts disagree on what will happen.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid and fellow MSNBC host Ali Velshi pushed for a British-style national health care system during the coronavirus pandemic even though there are reports that the country's National Health Service (NHS) has fared poorly during the current crisis. In fact, if one crunches the numbers, the overall per capita death rate from COVID-19 has been substantially higher so far in the United Kingdom than in the U.S.
The unhinged Left compared President George W. Bush to Hitler after the dawn of the Iraq War. Hollywood trotted out similar talking points months before Donald J. Trump could utter the presidential oath. Far-left comic Sarah Silverman unofficially played the “Hitler Card” first. Silverman, who ignores the anti-semitism swirling around Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, dressed as Der Fuhrer during a March 2016 appearance on Conan.
When the Cable News Network debuted in 1980, it soon earned a reputation as the top source for quick and accurate information 24 hours a day, all week long. That was 40 years ago, and the liberal channel has since fallen so far in the ratings that it was unable to generate even one program in the top 20 list during the first three months of 2020, which has been labeled “a dismal first quarter.”
With the grave coronavirus pandemic worsening this week, the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefings have been far more sobering and less combative than past episodes. Sunday and Monday featured fireworks, but it wasn’t until Friday’s that tensions resurfaced as President Trump squared off in two exchanges with CNN’s Jim Acosta and CBS’s Weijia Jiang.
Insufferable New York Times opinion columnist Thomas Friedman is exploiting the pandemic to spew climate change drivel at President Donald Trump.In an op-ed headlined “With the Coronavirus, It’s Again Trump vs. Mother Nature,” Friedman used a dubious comparison between Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and climate change as evidence he was “enamored with markets but ignorant of Mother Nature.”
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign released a video in March deceptively depicting President Donald Trump calling the coronavirus a “hoax.” Twitter refused to label or take the video down, in accordance with its manipulated media policies.
Liberal critics’ favorite show is coming back with an episode that fulfills every lefty’s sweetest dream. CBS All Access’s anti-Trump The Good Fight returns for season 4 with a premiere that imagines an alt history where Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016.
