On Thursday morning, Fox News again displayed the kind of good journalism that is so often lacking on the more liberal networks, as Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked former Barack Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the cage-like structures that his administration built to hold illegal immigrants, including children. Johnson defended the facilities as being necessary to detain a large number of illegals quickly while keeping children and young women safe from adult detainees who were not related to them.
CNN’s Inside Politics continued on Friday the latest liberal media crusade to do not only Russia’s bidding by sowing dissent, but argue with a rhetorical wink and nod that Donald Trump is an illegitimate President. Most amusingly, host John King and his fellow panelists claimed that “no one” has been “saying” in the wake of Thursday night’s New York Times article “that Trump was colluding with Russia again.”
Last night at a Trump rally, the president criticized the Academy Awards giving Best Picture this year to South Korean film, Parasite. While ripping the decision, he invoked classic American movies, Gone With the Wind and Sunset Boulevard. Trump just merely mentioning Gone With the Wind triggered the hosts at The View on Friday’s show, as they attacked Trump’s “xenophobia” and racism.
While hyping reports that President Trump fired his acting Director of National Intelligence over concerns that the intelligence community was too focused on allegations of Russian interference in the upcoming election, on her Friday morning show, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle claimed that Trump should want to “have a clean win” in 2020 after the “asterisk” in the 2016 election.
Contribution records appear to show that the newly hired heads of the National Public Radio Foundation (NPRF) and National Public Radio (NPR) are liberal partisans. So why does NPR continue to receive taxpayer funding? The new Chair of the NPR Foundation Board of Trustees John McGinn gave the maximum-allowed $2,800 to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) presidential campaign Mar. 2, 2019.
As Thursday's CNN Right Now came to a close, host Brianna Keilar took time reflect on the events of the past couple of weeks in the form of an anti-President Trump monologue. Unfortunately, the monologue was riddled with various false, misleading, and partisan criticisms.
Friday morning, CNN brought on a juror from the Roger Stone trial to dismiss President Trump’s claims of political bias. Even though the lead juror was a Democrat who ran for Congress and whose social media is filled with anti-Trump posts, New Day co-host John Berman pretended as if President Trump’s claims of bias came out of nowhere. He invited his guest to tear into the President for “denigrating” the patriotic duty of jury service.
It’s been more than a decade since Donald Trump hosted some version of The Apprentice on NBC, but that didn’t stop disgraced newsman Brian Williams from using footage from the program to cast a sinister light on the President after the Republican official pardoned several prisoners on Tuesday. Williams, who has been the host of The 11th Hour on the MSNBC cable channel since September of 2016, seemed to blame his network’s parent company for enabling Trump’s rise in politics that resulted in his time in the White House.
The Deep State and liberal media had quite the night on Thursday in light of a New York Times report that “Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected.” In the first 27 minutes of MSNBC’s Hardball, the narrative was that, without citing direct evidence, President Trump was a “wannabe dictator” “collaborating with the Soviets” to carry out “Russian attacks on our democracy” with an assist from “a complicit, compliant, lick-spittle Republican Congress” acting like “hosts of Russia Today.”
As of Thursday, there were two sets of data from respected pollsters that showed President Trump pulling ahead his Democratic rivals nationally and in at least one key swing state. But conveniently leaked information to The New York Times provided excellent cover to ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News as it allowed them to ignore the polls and set the groundwork to falsely claim any Trump victory in November was the sole result of Russian interference.
The New York Times news pages are attacking Donald Trump from all angles to deny him a second term: The Europeans don’t like him! On Wednesday, Steven Erlanger, the paper’s chief diplomatic correspondent, fretted about how “Europe Ponders a ‘Deeply Damaging’ Trump Re-election.” Erlanger’s piece has a strong whiff of anti-Trump, pro-European superiority for a “news” story: "Many anticipate a collapse in the already eroding trust in American leadership and credibility."
Endorsing one of the candidates during a presidential campaign is usually a rare thing for most reporters, celebrities and other famous people. However, retired ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson did just that when he made a video in which he expressed his public support for former Republican and wealthy Democrat Michael Bloomberg in the 2020 campaign for the White House.
