Beginning with Friday’s evening newscasts and going through Monday’s morning shows, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS provided an astonishing 93 minutes of air time to promoting former Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new tell-all book blasting the administration and accusing the President of being a “racist.” While hosts and correspondents repeatedly acknowledged the Apprentice star’s major credibility problems, that didn’t stop them from providing the avalanche of coverage.
Showing their bias for anyone and anything anti-Trump, CNN’s At This Hour showed nothing but warm sympathy on Monday morning for Peter Strzok upon news he was fired by the FBI, repeatedly expressing hope that “he was treated fairly” and fretting that he was “a favorite punching bag” for President Trump and conservative media.
Remember the charge that President Trump mocking Don Lemon and Maxine Waters as dummies was painted as racist? The other day, MRC analyst Nick Fondacaro e-mailed me a New York Times listing of all of Trump's Twitter insults, which clearly demonstrated that Trump is very generous in the "dummy" insults -- including "low IQ," "not bright," and "clueless." I counted 34 Caucasian Americans on this list.
Shortly before a white supremacist rally was to be held outside the White House, ABC’s Good Morning America touted the ramblings of disgraced former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman. In her new book, ironically called Unhinged, she described the President as a “racist, bigot, and misogynist,” so, of course, the liberal media were enthralled. So much show that they touted a TMZ video of her suggesting President Trump wanted a “race war”.
I am offended at the Newseum’s T-shirt. Take a look at the label of this t-shirt at the Newseum's gift shop being offered for sale. It is described thusly: “Ladies Alternative Facts Tee.” On the shirt itself it defines “Alternative Fact” as follows: 1. A false statement delivered with deliberate intent to mislead or to deceive. Synonym: lie, prevarication, untruth.
On Friday, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News showed zero restraint when it came to salacious, unverified claims in an upcoming book by former White House aide and reality TV firebrand Omarosa Manigault-Newman that President Trump used the n-word. Even though there’s already contradictions emerging, both eagerly led with and reported them anyway.
Liberal director Spike Lee took advantage of an interview on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360 to promote his new movie, BlacKkKlansman, which the filmmaker claimed is “not just a history lesson” even though it takes place during the 1970s.As you might expect, it didn’t take long for the discussion to degenerate into attacks on GOP President Donald Trump, whose “toxic” comments and acts have led Lee to refer to him as “Agent Orange,” a man who is leading “a rise to the right” not just in America, but worldwide as well.
Did you see a particular Wall Street Journal front-page headline on Monday? It read "Profits Soar as Economy Advances." That headline will probably be the most important headline of the week. It certainly is of colossal importance. Our economy is robust. The rest of the world is not doing so well. Take, for instance, China. Yet our economy is unusually healthy. If we have to engage in a trade war, it is an auspicious time for us to do so.
Friday afternoon grandstanding reporter Jim Acosta filled in as host of Wolf Blitzer’s eponymously named CNN show. And -mid-program, Acosta desperately tried to get one of his guests to bash President Trump as a hypocrite for his stance on chain migration, and the Justice Department for accidentally deporting two asylum seekers. Instead, his conservative guest schooled the partisan reporter about hyping a “non-story.”
It's ironic that the loudest of Trump haters routinely breach the very civil standards of decency they claim justify their antipathy. Others are just creepily obsessed. I'm not exaggerating. Trump haters from both sides of the political aisle have fretted themselves into a consuming frenzy against the president. Whatever worldview they had, it is now overlaid with a Trump-animus fixation that obscures rational thought. It has slain their civility and subordinated their passion for certain policies.
Rapper Kanye West sat down with ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on his late night show Thursday night to talk about a his career, family life and his support for President Trump. After famously meeting with President at Trump Tower last year, he has been ostracized by the media for his continued and unlikely support for Trump. West addressed the backlash he’s faced for his decision, blasting the left and the media for trying to “bully” him into liking their preferred candidate.
First Lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the oath to become U.S. citizens on Thursday but NBC Nightly News was not having it. The broadcast network speculated that they received special treatment in the process and possibly used chain migration, a program the President opposes, even though the process still exists and still legal.
