In the midst of covering Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows excitedly shared the news that far-left New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and radical Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar would be endorsing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders for President. None of the extreme views or scandals of either left-wing lawmaker were mentioned.
Last Thursday, the press in Ilhan Omar's home base of Minneapolis reported the congresswoman filed for divorce after a previous round of stories noted a wife of one of her political strategists, Tim Mynette, accused Omar of adultery with her husband in their divorce papers. None of these new developments can be found anywhere in the news transcripts on the Nexis database, including Fox News Channel.
The day after the Trump rally in Minnesota, the tag line in The HuffPost’s “Morning Email” reads this way: “How Trump used the U.S. government to chase conspiracy theories; Plus, Trump’s vicious Thursday night rally.” When one clicks on the link to the rally story one is taken to this article headlined: “Trump Rips Rep. Ilhan Omar As ‘Fraud’ And ‘Disgrace’ During Rally In Her District. President Donald Trump ranted against the Minnesota Democrat and vowed to prevent more Somalian refugees from entering the U.S.”
During Wednesday’s Full Frontal, TBS host Samantha Bee conducted what was not surprisingly softball interview with Congresswoman and so-called “Squad” member Ilhan Omar (D-MN), which included Bee fantasizing about joining “the Squad.”
It might have been football Sunday, but CBS and Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan offered up slow-pitch softballs to anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN). Downplaying her guest’s “sometimes controversial” comments, Brennan asked simple questions that allowed Omar to freely make excuses. Of course, Brennan ignored Omar’s raging anti-Semitism.
Just as he did during last year’s name-reading at the 9/11 remembrance ceremony at Ground Zero, 9/11 victim Nicholas Haros Jr. used his time to speak to those in Washington, D.C. who fail in their duty to treat the day with reverence. On Wednesday, his denouncement was of anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her infamous “some people did something” chide against the solemn day.
Morning Joe ripped a resolution adopted by the Alabama Republican Party calling for the expulsion from Congress of Ilhan Omar, but fails to mention the latest controversies concerning her, in which she has been accused of conducting an affair with a married man, and paying him and his consulting firm hundreds of thousands of dollars in possible violation of campaign finance law.
Around Tuesday afternoon, news reports started breaking that anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was accused in divorce filings of stealing the husband of a Washington, D.C. mother, Dr. Beth Mynett. The liberal broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC, who normally flock to such stories when they involve porn stars and President Trump, were nowhere to be seen on these accusations during their evening newscasts.
How extreme are the members of the so-called Democratic “squad?” Extreme enough that even Bill Maher finds Congresswoman Rashida Talib extreme. On Wednesday, he actually posted a defense of our staunch Middle East ally after Tlaib not only slammed that nation, but also called for a boycott of Maher’s long-running program. While calling the Minnesota Democrat “childlike” in her behavior, the comedian tweeted:
In a Wednesday appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime with fill-in host David Asman, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham ripped into The New York Times by comparing the newspaper to the current Congress, complete with a lefty leader being besieged by their “radical base”.
President Trump handed the liberal media more ammunition on Wednesday when he doubled down on his inartful comments criticizing American Jews who voted for Democrats instead of siding with Israel. With the President calling them “disloyal”, accusations of anti-Semitism poured forth from the media. Meanwhile, Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) were wrapped up in their own cases of anti-Semitism and claims of disloyalty, yet the liberal media covered for them.
Imagine two sitting Republican Congresspeople planned a trip to a foreign country in conjunction with a nongovernmental organization. Imagine that particular NGO had a long history of Jew hatred: It had run a piece on its website quoting anti-Semitic myths about Jews imbibing Christian blood, republished a neo-Nazi article decrying the “Jew-controlled entertainment media” and suggested that “honor” was the proper response to a terrorist who murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children.
