More than 30 years after President Ronald Reagan left office, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude on Sunday was still blaming him for modern economic problems during a discussion of the Democratic presidential race. On Up with David Gura, as Glaude gushed over Elizabeth Warren's performance in the last debate, he even claimed that Democrats have been "complicit" along with Republicans in implementing Reaganesque economic policy.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan has spent the Trump era insisting on how Donald Trump is at odds with what she calls the "reality-based press." But what about when the facts line up against candidates Margaret likes? Well, then facts are no longer fair. "Alternative facts" are produced.
New York Times political reporter Thomas Kaplan performed impressive damage control on behalf of rising Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday. But he really raised his game in his Friday “news analysis” entitled, “As Warren Rises, Republicans Probe Her Biography for Points of Attack,” which was even more shameless in its feminist favoritism toward Warren. Kaplan hurled the “sexism” card at the GOP for daring to show Warren lied about the circumstances of her leaving a teaching position in 1971.The text box: “Looking to a tactic that is often used against women.”
After thinking that having a seven-hour-long town hall about climate change was a great idea, CNN returned Thursday night with a four-and-a-half hour town hall partnering with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) about LGBTQ issues. Rampant protests calling attention to black transwomen, Chris Cuomo joking about preferred pronouns, and flat-out abuse with transgender elementary-age children were just a few of the things that transpired.
Politicians, they are just like us. There are very few people who enjoy the ever-nauseating segments where presidential candidates attempt to humanize themselves by relating to ordinary citizens on liberal television shows. Despite that, Stephen Colbert invited some of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to participate in one of these stunts on The Late Show, Wednesday night.
New York Times reporter Thomas Kaplan played damage control for Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren in “Warren Details Account Of Losing Teaching Job Because of a Pregnancy.” It turns out Warren has told two different stories over the years about leaving her teaching position. Previously she had claimed she left because of insufficient educational qualifications. But later she claimed she was fired for being pregnant. But the story’s headlines gave no hint of a possible contradiction in Warren’s account of her “firing” over the years. The Times instead feverishly tried to protect her reputation, even talking on Twitter of Warren “refuting a conservative news site's challenge of her account” when she did no such thing.
CBS This Morning on Wednesday finally committed journalism and covered the latest example of Elizabeth Warren being forced to confront contradictory facts about her background. This time, it’s claims that she was fired from a teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant. After ignoring claims highlighted by The Washington Free Beacon on Monday, This Morning’s Tony Dokoupil explained, “A series of reports have questioned the story she's been telling it on the campaign trail.”
The Washington Free Beacon exposed just how fact-averse cable "news" networks can be when it comes to liberal darlings. On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, host Hallie Jackson addressed Elizabeth Warren's now-disproven claim that she was dismissed from a teacher job in 1971 for being pregnant. Jackson aired old video of Warren telling a much different story -- that she left voluntarily to stay home with her new baby. Jackson put on the communications director for EMILY's List, a PAC for "pro-choice Democratic women candidates," explain away Warren's dishonesty on the campaign trail.
Massachusetts Senator and 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren was no stranger to spreading tall tales about her life, just look at her false claims of being Native American. On Monday, The Washington Free Beacon caught her in another apparent lie. This time it was about allegedly being fired from a teaching gig for being “visibly pregnant”. The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were so obsessed with President Trump’s impeachment that they failed to report it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
Democrats want to persecute any business, person, or group that has helped or even simply not hindered President Donald Trump. Even top social media companies. Senator and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren came after Facebook on Twitter on Oct. 7, for “help[ing] elect Donald Trump once” and for labeling her own campaign as “an ‘existential’ threat to Facebook.”
Just like in 2016, the networks have done their best to ignore Democrat presidential candidate scandals and lies while harping on everything surrounding Donald Trump. After capitalizing on her grossly exaggerated Native American ancestry, frontrunner Elizabeth Warren has been caught in another lie, by her own words from twelve years ago. However, you wouldn’t know this if you only watched ABC, NBC or CBS.
Strange political times make for unexpected allies as Democratic primary candidates defend Trump’s right to have a platform on Twitter. Democratic presidential nominee rivals Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts rejected comments by Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) calling for Trump to be suspended from Twitter.
