In a fawning softball interview with Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren during Thursday’s 9 a.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle was thrilled that the left-wing lawmaker had issued President Trump a failing grade in a partisan “report card” marking his six months in the White House.
Amid the endless media obsession with Trump scandal allegations, important policy issues are getting short shrift. Considering that the left is happy with the status quo -- the autopilot advancement of statism -- this can only please Democrats. Based on the overwhelming trend of national and state elections since 2010, the nation now firmly rejects liberal policies. Whether or not Democrats get the message, they don't intend to move right to accommodate the electorate.
On Thursday evening, CNN.com ran a story by reporter Thomas Frank which, according to a now-posted Editor's Note, connected "Anthony Scaramucci with (congressional) investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund." The Editor's Note tells the network's readers: "That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted." Further, "Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci." Then, in a Monday evening bombshell, Fox News's Howard Kurtz reported that "Three journalists (have) quit CNN in fallout from (the) retracted Russia story" — although it's possible they may have resigned instead of getting fired. What in the world happened?
So much for those calls for civility in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise. On Thursday, Democratic Senator and progressive hero Elizabeth Warren disgustingly accused the Republicans of funding their health care bill with “blood money” and “paying for tax cuts with American lives.” Surely the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks would condemn such language in this new era of civility right? Well not exactly.
Two days after a Bernie Sanders-supporting, Republican-hating gunman attempted to slaughter GOP members of Congress, CBS This Morning’s Gayle King on Friday asked Elizabeth Warren if “both sides” were responsible for the heated climate. The co-hosts also failed to press the liberal Democrat on some of her angry rants.
On the same day that the media were back shining Hillary Clinton’s apples, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent Tuesday night carrying water for far-left darling and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), telling her that she possesses a “mastery” in her “thrilling” “speaking skills.”
On the same day conservative author Ann Coulter announced she would not speak to a campus group at the University of California in Berkeley, the New York Times blamed the victim and claimed that conservatives facing violent riots and protests on campuses across the country have no one to blame but themselves.
In a book review for Sunday’s print edition The Washington Post, The Atlantic’s Emma Green tore into Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) new book This Is Our Fight for neglecting to grapple with the Democratic Party’s many issues following its 2016 election debacle and failing to understand why blue collar Americans backed President Trump.
ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. usually manages to toe the line between liberal ideology and hardcore reality. Their latest story arc takes the characters to a Matrix-like alternate world where the writers can make up any reality they want. In this case, it’s a world where we still have to deal with the “nevertheless, she persisted” line like it means something.
An interesting development took place earlier this month in Boston as Democratic mayoral candidate Tito Jackson had to apologize for grabbing the arm of a female local NPR reporter similar to how Corey Lewandowski physically grabbed reporter Michelle Fields in March 2016.
As network news hosts chat up the idea of running Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president in 2020, the ultraliberal Harvard hero is out with a feisty new campaign book titled This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class. So The New York Times found a reviewer...or just a gob-smacked fan? They let their own socialist professor/columnist Paul Krugman write a fan letter thinly disguised as a book review.
It began by hailing activist professors (now there’s an unexpected twist...)
On Tuesday, the hosts of NBC’s Today were thrilled to have an exclusive live interview with Donald Trump’s “top agitator” and left-wing bomb thrower Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. In addition to inviting her to blast the President over his tax returns and praising her “fight” for “the middle class, the person who doesn’t seem to catch a break,” Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie made it clear they were ready for the Democrat to run for president.
