Donald Trump Jr.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, host Craig Melvin denied that the dominant news media have a liberal bias after Republican Congressman Dave Brat started hitting him with reports that over 96 percent of journalists who made political donations chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. A bit later, Melvin denied biased reporting as he declared, "Even if that bias did exist -- which, I mean, Dave, it doesn't -- even if it did --" Brat zinged him: "If it exists? Now, you got to come clean with me on that one."
The media’s sudden explosion over a meeting last summer at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and an alleged “Kremlin-backed lawyer” (she wasn’t Kremlin-backed) has spawned a whole new feeding frenzy. Every mini-scoop gets inflated into the latest contender in the urgent liberal question “What Will Finally Get Trump Impeached?”
The Washington Post published a surprising op-ed on Friday. The online headline was "The media's martyr complex is embarrassing." (The last two words somehow didn't fit in the newspaper headline.) It's the latest article the Post has published from Gary Abernathy, publisher and editor of the Hillsboro (Ohio) Times-Gazette.
On Thursday, CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert reminded everyone how lewd and pathetic his behavior has been, tearing into White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway as “Satan's trophy wife” during a shtick mocking her most recent Hannity appearance defending the Trump administration from Russian collusion claims.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC's Joy Reid was displaying a severe case of projection as the far-left AM Joy host claimed that the Republican party is "built on" "resentment," "victimhood," and a "persecution complex" -- all of which would be more aptly applied to her own liberal ideology.
I have returned! From Europe, that is, and I hope I met with no Russian agents while there. The soi-disant liberals are in a snit about the Russians. Apparently, Donald Trump Jr. and the mysterious senior White House adviser Jared Kushner met with an agent of the Kremlin in June of last year, and they did not report their meeting to The Powers That Be.
During a Bastille Day press conference on Thursday with President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, a male French reporter from BFM-TV tried to bait Macron into attacking Trump over his immigration policies and knock Trump down for previous statements about French terror attacks.
The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening news shows have been dominated by Donald J. Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower – a meeting in which apparently no favors, money or meaningful information was exchanged – but those same shows all but ignored Hillary Clinton’s Russia-Uranium scandal back in 2015. At the time, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was considered the favorite to win the Democratic nomination but the networks couldn’t care less. Total amount of Big Three evening news network coverage in over two years? Just 3 minutes and 1 second.
On Wednesday afternoon, Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes made his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, taking the media to task over their raucous, premature “dancing...in the streets” over the Donald Trump Jr.-Russian lawyer story.
As CNN continues their crusade to bring down the Trump presidency, New Day spent 93 percent of their three-hour program Wednesday covering Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump campaign's supposed collusion with Russia. The other seven percent was spent on baseball (~1.5%) and negative coverage of the GOP's healthcare bill (~5.5%).
Why does Donald Trump bash CNN as an ideological purveyor of fake news out to get the President? Just look at the cable network’s app and see what headlines they are blasting out to viewers. Story after story shows an obsession with Trump and his children and no objectivity or perspective is apparently needed. As of 11:37pm ET on Tuesday night, four out of the top five stories on the CNN app were about Trump Jr. What was the fifth story? “Special ops forces among 16 dead in Marine Corps plane crash.”
One of President Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, made his rounds on the morning shows Wednesday to defend Trump from the media’s accusations that he must’ve known about his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. On ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos repeatedly tried to get Sekulow to admit Trump was complicit and would have to admit to that under oath, using media reports from anonymous sources as his basis of inquiry.
