This season of CBS’s The Good Fight is delivering on its promise to make the show all about Trump. The opening credits feature scenes of President Trump delivering speeches and the episode titles reflect how many days he has been in office. Sunday’s episode, “Day 415”, began with a fake TV news report on President Trump. While liberals constantly accuse Trump and conservatives of spreading “fake news,” the writers of The Good Fight have no problem using actual fake news to mock the president. The made-up WXBK News Channel sports the headline, “Trump ‘Chats’ with Mermaid, Cleo,” claiming Trump tweeted about speaking with a mermaid, which White House aids are now refuting.
The March 11 episode of Showtime’s Stephen Colbert "comedy" Our Cartoon President, titled “Media Strategy,” was all about President Trump’s war with the mainstream media, with a side story about First Lady Melania Trump’s goal of having an expressionless face to avoid rolling her eyes in public when Trump lies and over-exaggerates. No, really. That was the show.
The Associated Press's Paul Wiseman has apparently tired of good economic news. Saturday, the AP reporter painted a frightening picture of what a trade war based on President Donald Trump's planned tariffs on a tiny sliver of U.S. imports might do to the world's economy, mischaracterizing a prominent economist's position to build his case.
Of all the absurd takes on the U.S.–North Korean situation in the wake of President Trump's tentative, conditional agreement to meet with Kim Jong Un, Barbara Demick's Friday "analysis" piece at the Los Angeles Times has to be near the top of any "worst" list. The headline: "Whatever comes next, North Korea's Kim Jong Un can claim a win against Trump." Oh really?
During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.
On New Day Sunday, CNN viewers finally saw the recent controversy over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's ties to Democrats at least mentioned by someone other than Jake Tapper during a discussion of former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon's speech to a right-wing political group in France. But -- in spite of the incendiary and blatantly racist nature of some of Farrakhan's comments, some of which have been very recent -- co-host Victor Blackwell suggested that it was more important to give attention to Bannon's speech than that of Farrakhan.
When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea, as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war.
Many liberals woke up on the morning of November 9 in a state of extreme shock when they found out that the impossible happened...Donald J. Trump had been elected the 45th president of the United States. As we have seen in the many entertaining post-election videos, many reacted with shock, fury, or extreme sadness. However, one of the Trump haters acted in a very unique fashion; he blockaded not only all news about Donald Trump but, in fact, all news of the outside world from his mind.
The special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district between Rick Saccone (R) and Connor Lamb (D) was two days away and the liberal media was set for it to be a victory in their favor. A top story on each of ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning news programs was dedicated to playing up the possibility that the Democrats could beat out Republicans in their own district, which would help take back control of the House of Representatives in what they were calling a “blue wave.”
At the New York Times it is mandatory that President Donald Trump receive little or no credit for his accomplishments. This seems to be especially true about the Thursday announcement that Trump will be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by May. The Times columnist, Max Fisher, went out of his way to emphasize not only in his Thursday column (which must have been hastily written since the announcement came at 7 PM that day) but also in a series of tweets that Trump just wasn't following proper diplomatic protocol.
When the startling news broke late Thursday that President Trump had accepted an invitation to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, the media intelligentsia begrudgingly shifted their focus away from the Stormy Daniels controversy. But with the leak of an e-mail sent by Trump’s lawyer from his Trump Organization account, they leapt on the excuse to return to their preferred topic.
MRC President Brent Bozell on Thursday attended a White House meeting with Donald Trump to discuss violence in video games. Talking to Fox Business’s Charles Payne, Bozell said of the meeting: “I promise you, if you saw some of the violence we saw today on some of these games, you wouldn't allow it on your network. But why then are millions of children watching it?”
