Todd Is Confused By Federalism, Lets Polis Compare DeSantis to Putin

May 6th, 2022 3:15 PM

MTP Daily might be on its last legs on MSNBC, but before the show goes exclusively to NBC News Now, host Chuck Todd will still be spreading liberal narratives on cable. On Friday, that included an interview with Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, where Todd was confused by basic civics of how federalism works and refusing to fact check Polis when he alleged that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is…

Lessons from Venezuela

October 28th, 2021 9:57 PM

Democrats say President Joe Biden won "a strong mandate." His government can do all sorts of good things! I don't believe he has a mandate, but thanks to the selfishness of former President Donald Trump, Democrats control Congress, and that may give them power to shove their worst ideas down our throats. Those include: No. 1: Hate speech laws, No. 2: Expanding the Supreme Court, No. 3: Gun…

MSNBC Contributor: I Have to Wipe 'Stink' of Tucker Carlson Out of Air

May 8th, 2021 11:10 AM

Back in 2006, when Venezuela's communist dictator Hugo Chavez took the UN podium, he claimed, in an allusion to the Devil, to still smell the "sulphur" from the previous day, when then-President George W. Bush had spoken. In a reprise of Chavez's clownish act, MSNBC contributor Fernand Amandi, after viewing a Tucker Carlson clip that Tiffany Cross ran on her MSNBC show this morning,…

NY Times Shows Hypocrisy on Race, Hugo Chavez, and Maxine Waters

January 9th, 2021 4:45 PM

The inexcusable rioting and looting in the halls and floors of the U.S. Congress this week has cast a shameful pall over the country. But the New York Times often went beyond justifiably calling out the rioters and those who egged them on. The paper overreached, making accusations of racial favoritism among police and alleging a double standard on riots, while ignoring liberal…

SICK MSNBC Argues With Venezuelan-Americans That Trump = Chavez

October 29th, 2020 2:36 PM

According to MSNBC's Ellison Barber, the Trump campaign's appeal to Venezuelan-American voters in Florida warning of socialism is working, which naturally led her to interview two Trump supporters for Wednesday's MSNBC Live and argue that Trump is the one who is more like former socialist dictator Hugo Chavez.

Leave it to The New York Times (The Times) to publish a 1,000-plus-word story on the failed state of Venezuela’s collapsing oil sector without saying anything about socialism.

'Socialism' Ignored in NY Times Brazil-Venezuela Border Tensions Item

April 29th, 2018 2:11 PM
As Venezuela's socialism-driven disaster deepens, the press's unwillingness to recognize its cause has gone from being "merely" negligent and outrageous to absolutely disgusting. This obvious failure, which is almost certainly conscious and deliberate, is present even when a journalist's work portraying the human element of the crisis is otherwise compelling. Such is the…

‘Socialism’ Absent from 9,000-Word NYT Story on Venezulean Woes

March 4th, 2018 5:12 PM
The New York Times’ abject refusal to pin the socialism label on the failed and starving state of Venezuela is well-documented (as is the paper’s whitewashing of that and other tyrannical left-wing regimes). In the newest Times Sunday Magazine, writer Wil S. Hylton devoted nearly 9,000 words to fiery, often-imprisoned opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, “Can Venezuela Be Saved?…

Press More Reluctant Than Ever To Tag Collapsing Venezuela 'Socialist'

February 9th, 2018 9:18 PM
As Venezuela plunges deeper into humanitarian crisis, the broadcast and cable networks barely recognize its existence, while the print press, which during relatively tolerable times routinely celebrated the country's socialist government, is more reluctant than ever to use the S-word. Of six articles I found Friday afternoon about the horrid, deteriorating situation in that country, only…

NY Times Venezuela Starvation Story Barely Notes Its Socialist Govt.

December 19th, 2017 11:57 PM
Any list of the year's most ignored news stories has to include Venezuela's frightening deterioration. This once reasonably prosperous South American nation is now in the grips of a brutal socialist de facto dictatorship which is moving inexorably to consolidate its control, accompanied by an utterly wrecked economy. Families cannot feed their children, and many are dying. The New…

As Venezuela Implodes, NBC Avoids Naming the Cause: Socialism

May 7th, 2017 5:29 PM
On Thursday, an Investor's Business Daily editorial cited a long list of news outlets which have recently covered the calamitous events in Venezuela, but which, in IBD's words, "continue to obfuscate, if not totally ignore" the fact that the country's implosion can be laid at the feet of one simple cause: "Socialism." One particularly appalling example exemplifying…

Maddow: Venezuelans Are Rioting Over Donations to Trump's Inauguration

April 22nd, 2017 3:44 PM
As Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted on Friday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow's obsession with the money raised for President Donald Trump's inauguration went into overdrive the previous evening. During the same show, Maddow combined that obsession with another one shared by most of the news media — the absolute necessity to avoid blaming Venezuela's dire economic…

NY Times Blames ‘Populism,’ Not Socialism, for Venezuela Crisis

Business
April 4th, 2017 12:07 PM
Even in the face of obvious failure, the liberal media deflect blame for Venezuela’s economic collapse away from socialism. On April 1, New York Times columnists Max Fisher and Amanda Taub blamed “populism” for Venezuela's issues, using the economic crisis there to explain the dangers of populism while essentially ignoring socialism’s…
