The Washington Post still hasn't gotten over the 2016 election. On the front of the Style section on Saturday, romance novelist Lisa Kleypas pleaded with Hillary Clinton not to bad-mouth romance novels, since she is a "romance novel heroine." On the front page of the Outlook section on Sunday, the Post published some Fake News it liked: imagining how Trump would kill millions of Americans in a nuclear/conventional war with North Korea in 2019.
There's no doubt that CBS’s Madam Secretary was inspired from the beginning by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Despite an overcrowded season of topics ranging from fake news stories to the Earth fighting back against global warming, the show finally returns to its roots for another Hillary fantasy. This time, she takes on the infamous but also fictional Russian leaks.
News stories might have cost Hillary Clinton the presidency, but they were real stories from Manhattan, not fake stories from Macedonia. That’s the major takeaway from a new content analysis of media coverage of the 2016 campaign that the Columbia Journalism Review published on Tuesday.
Liberals in the media will say anything to justify why they turned a blind eye to sexual predators in their midst. Take TBS comedian Samantha Bee, who tried to pretend on her show, Full Frontal, last night, that these men’s “misogyny” was well evidenced by their bias against Hillary Clinton.
If you’re a conservative supporter of Donald Trump, it’s likely you have your own personal villain in the mainstream media who you love to hate. For me, it’s CNN politics reporter, Chris Cillizza. That’s not to take away from the fine work many left-wing activists masquerading as reporters are doing. But Cillizza takes the cake. He is supposedly a politics reporter and editor-at-large for CNN, but in reality, he has only one job, which is continuously rewrite the same, anti-Trump commentary.
Despite two hours of available air time, ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday skipped a damning New York Times story with a bombshell claim: Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 presidential campaign, was told that Harvey Weinstein was a rapist, but still took his donations and raised money off him.
Saturday Night Live comedian Kate McKinnon admitted on NBC’s Tonight Show Tuesday that she had a public meltdown when she heard that Hillary Clinton mentioned her in her election memoir. “I sank to my knees,” McKinnon admitted to host Jimmy Fallon, “So I would always remember that moment,” she gushed.
Over the weekend, it was discovered that Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a veteran FBI agent, named Peter Strzok, off his team for sending text messages that were disparaging of President Trump. But on Monday, new information broke that Strzok was responsible for toning down former FBI Director Comey’s language when he was announcing he would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton in the e-mail investigation. That interesting tidbit was blacked out of the reports in the evening broadcasts of CBS and NBC.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as host Joy Reid held a discussion which tried to tie accusations of sexual misbehavior against big media figures like NBC's Matt Lauer with the dominant media allegedly being biased against Hillary Clinton, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin claimed that the media were not tough enough on Donald Trump, and suggested they could have done more to throw the election to Clinton.
During the past week, most people who follow center-right news outlets and blogs became familiar with the name of Charles McCullough III. McCullough, the former Intel Community General Inspector who identified 22 "beyond classified" emails present on Hillary Clinton's home-brew server years after she had left her position as Obama administration Secretary of State, has appeared on several Fox shows revealing that he was harassed and threatened for reporting that finding to his superiors, and that he was promised that he would be fired once Mrs. Clinton won the 2016 general election (oops). Very few establishment press outlets have done anything with the story in the past six days, and the rare exceptions have used McCullough's revelations as a platform to take shots at President Donald Trump.
Mark down this date: December 3, 2017. Why? Because of all the ridiculous stories ever published in Politico, the one written by Bill Scher on that date could well rate as the most absurd of all. Scher proposes that if the U.S. Senate seat from Arkansas is open in 2018 due to Tom Cotton leaving the Senate that either Hillary, Bill, or Chelsea Clinton should run for that seat. Adding to the absurdity of that proposal is the fact that Scher details why none of the Clintons would have much of a chance winning that seat so why bother writing the article in the first place?
The most ridiculous spin exercise emerging from the Matt Lauer/Charlie Rose scandal is that somehow this is why Hillary Clinton lost, the lecherous male journalists beat her. The New York Times – the same newspaper that publicly devoted itself to electing Hillary Clinton on the front page – turned to feminist writer Jill Filipovic for an editorial on how sexist media bias is to blame for Hillary’s loss. “The latest harassment and assault allegations complicate that account and suggest that perhaps many of the high-profile media men covering Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump were the ones leading with their genitals.”
