New York Times writer Matt Stevens seized upon a dubious angle regarding the last-minute assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, “Drinking Days Fondly Recalled, Raising Eyebrows.” Stevens’ story was manufactured wholly from bad-faith insinuation and innuendo, based on a light-hearted cracks by Kavanaugh in speeches about high school and law school drinking shenanigans that have been made in similar fashion a billion times before without comment. Even other mainstream outlets haven’t emphasized that angle, but the Times ran with it in Thursday’s edition, clarifying the paper’s hostility toward the Kavanaugh nomination and shameless willingness to use any means necessary to combat it:
On Wednesday evening, CNN’s Chris Cuomo dedicated part of his show to discuss Mollie Tibbetts. Tibbetts was a young college student at the University of Iowa who was allegedly murdered by an illegal immigrant. Her death has been politicized by both sides in the fight over immigration policy.
Liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren offered a painfully awkward response when pressed by CNN’s John Berman on the murder of an Iowa college student by an illegal immigrant. Will the other networks, including CNN, follow-up on this gaffe? Talking to Berman on Wednesday about the killing of Mollie Tibbetts, Warren insisted that we need to focus on the “real problems,” such as illegals being separated from their parents.
During a softball interview with Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell avoided asking a single question about the left-wing lawmaker’s radical proposal to impose stringent government regulations on any business with over one billion dollars in revenue.
During a softball interview with left-wing Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday’s Late Night, aired early Wednesday morning, NBC’s Seth Meyers wondered if the Massachusetts lawmaker was “relieved” that the Democratic Party was “finally” becoming as radical as her.
As the midterm elections on November 6 draw ever nearer, liberal Democrats are attempting to boost their morale after being pounded unexpectedly by Republican candidate Donald Trump two years ago. During Monday evening’s program of The Ingraham Angle, the Fox News Channel host and conservative guest Ben Shapiro pointed to two “imaginary stories,” one in which Trump wins re-election since the Democrats had no one who could beat him -- or he learned that “the normal rules of politics do apply to Donald Trump after all” when he loses to “Hillary Clinton clone” Elizabeth Warren.
The labeling bias came straight from the very top of the New York Times lead National section story Monday. Richard Fausset reported from Georgia under the headlines, “A Race Pivots on Guns, Saws and Trucks – In Georgia’s heated G.O.P. runoff, two candidates for governor court voters on the far right.” Fausset played up the controversies and heated rivalry in Georgia, while a story on the emerging Democratic 2020 presidential choices was sedate and politely headlined: “Warren Is Warming Up for 2020. So Are Many Other Democrats.”
On Monday night, MSNBC prime-time shows spent the vast majority of their time discussing President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. Of the 27 guests which appeared over the four-hour block from 8:00 p.m. to midnight ET, not a single conservative was given time to speak about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.
The Boston Globe, which can make the New York Times look reasonable and moderate, pushed back ferociously against President Trump’s mockery of local hero Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a potential Democratic rival to Trump in 2020, accusing the president in an online headline of woman-hating and racism. The front page of Saturday’s paper featured reporter Annie Linskey’s attack: “With attack on Warren, Trump pushes more buttons: Talk of DNA test, swipe at #MeToo push more buttons.” The online headline was much sharper: “Critics say Trump’s insults of Warren were a double scoop of misogyny, racism.”
David A. Graham of Atlantic magazine, using the July 5 Trump rally in Montana as a basis for his evidence, is claiming that such rallies have become stale. Actually they have become stale but only if you believe Graham's very selectively edited version of that rally. Of course between his fantasy and the highly entertaining reality there is a yuuuge gap.
Appearing on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today Friday morning, correspondent Stephanie Gosk ran to the defense of Massachusetts Democratic Senator and possible 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, chastising President Trump for once again mocking the liberal lawmaker for lying about having Native American heritage.
Late Monday, after the White House’s official Twitter account called out Democrats for their positions on ICE and MS-13, some members of the media went berserk at the audacity of the White House Twitter going after senators for their policy positions. NBC's Andrea Mitchell even went so far as to claim that Trump was violating the law by doing so. However, archived White House tweets from the Obama era, revealed the media's two-faced stance on these actions.
