During Tuesday evening's edition of his prime-time show, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity spent almost nine minutes hammering CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who was “desperately trying to get back into the White House” after his “hard pass” was taken away last week. That action led the cable network to file a lawsuit against President Donald Trump and other high-ranking Republican officials.
Writing in an expansive piece entitled “The Eruption” for the Outlook section of Sunday’s Washington Post, non-fiction book critic Carlos Lozada compared Trump voters to “military units,” “cancer cells,” and even “explosives” because they have all been “activated” with Trump voters being “activated” as bigots running roughshod over American politics.
On Friday night, CNN ran a special unsubtlely titled Democracy in Peril: The War on Voting Rights, hosted by correspondent Kyung Lah, which touted accusations by liberals that Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression" by enacting voter laws, targeting minorities to prevent Democrats from winning.
Hillary Clinton might want to watch the video of a CNN interview with a panel of Democrat voters in Florida. If she somehow still has some notion of running for president again in 2020, their reaction to the idea of her campaigning in the Sunshine State for Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum might disabuse her of that idea.
As you can see in this episode of Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday most of those on the panel were strenuously opposed to her campaigning in Florida. In fact they make it quite plain that they are NOT with her.
In the middle of discussing the pipe bombs that were sent in the mail to several prominent Democrats this week on Thursday’s the View, co-host Meghan McCain had a come to Jesus moment and apologized for what she said about Hillary Clinton months ago on the show.
Less than 24 hours after several packages containing pipe bombs were intercepted on their way to prominent Democrats and the headquarters of CNN, a similar package was found on its way to one of the homes of liberal actor Robert De Niro Thursday morning. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, anchor Willie Geist broke the news, and contributor John Heilemann made it an opportunity to blame conservative media as responsible for making anti-Trump critics a “target.”
Amid Wednesday’s live breaking news coverage of authorities intercepting mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats and CNN’s New York City headquarters, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin teed up a former Hillary Clinton aide to blame President Trump for the incidents without knowing who sent the explosives or why.
On his MSNBC show, 'The Beat,' Ari Melber plays a clip of Barack Obama at a rally in Nevada, saying: "Nevada, you could be the first state ever to elect a state legislature where the majority are women [wild applause.] Which, I'm pretty sure things will work better if you give women a chance to run things for a while."
The Brett Kavanaugh saga has really lit a feminist fire at New York magazine, whose “Women in Power” series of interviews with prominent women (liberal activists, liberal politicians, and liberal journalist Andrea Mitchell) was published in an online series and compiled in the October 15-29 print issue. Unsurprisingly Anita Hill held the lead slot of the massive feature. The headline trumpeted “Anita Hill Won, Even Though She Lost.” Linda Sarsour, the media-celebrated Muslim “feminist."
In an otherwise critical piece about Hillary Clinton’s continued high public profile being a problem for Democrats ahead of the midterms and 2020, Politico’s Annie Karni touted the former Democratic nominee having learned at least one lesson from 2016: she should have been nicer to reporters. Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Friday afternoon, Karni emphasized how Clinton “understands that now she screwed up her relationship with the press.”
Michelle Cottle, the lead New York Times editorial writer for national politics, issued a surprising signed lead editorial in Thursday’s edition, “Hillary Clinton’s Master Class in Distraction” (perhaps a quasi-lead editorial, as it carries the paper’s “Editorial Observer” tag, but it is in the regular editorial slot). Cottle actually mentioned respectfully the case of Juanita Broaddick, who credibly accused then-Arkansas attorney general Bill Clinton of raping her in a hotel room in 1978.
The female co-hosts of ABC’s The View are certainly no strangers to controversy, but on Thursday, the panelists turned their attention from mostly liberal topics to criticizing Twitter for allowing numerous harsh posts to remain on the social network website. The discussion took a deeply personal tone when conservative co-host Meghan McCain described what she went through when a doctored photo invaded her grief after her father -- Arizona Senator John McCain -- passed away in late August.
