Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted Facebook for enabling disinformation while using the mainstream liberal media to misinform viewers. Clinton condemned Facebook, claiming the platform “aided and abetted” the "right-wing echo chamber,” in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria on March 8. While giving what was ostensibly a lecture on Facebook’s ability to push fake news to conservative audiences, she pushed the fact-checked false liberal narrative that Trump had called the coronavirus a “hoax.”
ABC and NBC on Friday spun the cringe-inducing, awkward new comments by Bill Clinton, in which the former President blamed his White House affair with Monica Lewinsky as “anxiety” management. The Today show and Good Morning America hailed a Hulu documentary as “remarkable” and a look at the “painful” time (for the Clintons).
The oozing admiration for Democratic politicians is never so tangible in the press as when Hillary Clinton hits the talk-show circuit. Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s Tonight Show shared in the media acclaim for Clinton’s newest Hulu Docu-series, “Hillary.”
If you thought yesterday morning’s interview with Hillary Clinton on Good Morning America was bad, the network continued its nauseatingly affectionate treatment of Clinton in an extended interview shown on ABC’s streaming channel, ABC Live, Tuesday evening. Correspondent Linsey Davis offered unfettered praise for Clinton in this version, even shamelessly affirming the failed 2016 candidate’s delusions that she actually won the election.
After MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews was forced out of a job Monday, the hosts of ABC’s The View had mixed reactions on Tuesday’s show. While some of the hosts praised Matthews, Joy Behar revealed she was fed up with the host’s sexist remarks about women. In particular, she was peeved he had complimented Republican women’s appearances while disparaging Hillary Clinton’s.
It’s not surprising but since Hulu is releasing a fawning Hillary Clinton documentary this week, the media is ready and willing to give it free press. But not only did ABC give Clinton a platform to discuss the doc on Good Morning America, they also invited the Democrat’s 2016 presidential nominee to do the DNC’s work in bashing Bernie Sanders.
Try to imagine the most guarded, self-protective personalities you know. Chances are good that among that list of people the name of Hillary Clinton pops up. And yet, Politico hilariously wants you to believe that Hillary Clinton is now looking for inspiration on how to conduct her upcoming podcast show to that most open of personalities... Howard Stern.
The liberal Spanish-media giant Univision has been sold. Media executive Wade Davis is heading up a private group to buy a majority stake in the company and will be its new CEO.
After the devastatingly poor performance Michael Bloomberg delivered at the Democrat debate in Las Vegas, he tells a group of billionaire businessmen that he is having second thoughts about buying the election. In the February 23 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President, Bloomberg decides to recruit Hillary Clinton to run in his place.
Though The New York Times is undeniably liberal in its reporting, it has been distinctly cool in coverage of the most left-wing Democratic candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). It was obvious back in 2016, when reporters tried to pester Sanders out of the race against Hillary Clinton. Is it principled ideology on the part of reporters, or partisan fear? Either way, the paper fired a shot across Bernie’s bow Sunday with a story bluntly warning Sanders he better watch out, then laid out why, even using an old insult to Ronald Reagan: “Sanders, the Teflon Candidate, Faces New Tests as a Front-Runner.”
During MSNBC's coverage of the Nevada caucus, Joy Reid says that by tweeting that he will not let the Democratic establishment stop him, Bernie Sanders is "kicking to the curb" 65 million Hillary Clinton voters, among others. Reid also describes as "Trumpy" Sanders's criticism of the Washington Post for waiting until one day before the Nevada caucus to release the month-old news that the Sanders campaign had been briefed on the fact that Russia is seeking to intervene to aid his campaign.
It’s impeachment, impeachment, impeachment everywhere on news shows and even in some television programming that is supposed to be entertaining. Season three of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President by Stephen Colbert airing January 26 used the same theme with an episode titled “Impeachment.” How’s that for original thought?
