On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough makes an angry, ranting defense of the liberal media's coverage of the Mueller probe and alleged Russian collusion. He calls critics of the MSM "corrupt" and says they should be "ashamed."
To paraphrase tweets from great Stephen Miller (no, not Stephen Miller from the White House), leave it to Al Sharpton to be the voice of sanity amidst MSNBC’s network-wide meltdown. Reacting on Sunday’s PoliticsNation to AG Bill Barr’s letter concerning the Mueller probe’s findings, he admitted that “the Democrats also now have to move on and really deal with hard issues.” No, that is not a misprint. That is word-for-word what Sharpton told MSNBC viewers on Sunday. Or at least all five of them.
Ann Coulter’s column published Wednesday was entitled “Media Magic: How a Democrat Pedophile Became a ‘Trump Scandal’” and focused on the lack of media coverage surrounding the case of “pedophile and Democratic donor Jeffrey Epstein” that suddenly came to an end the second the media realized they could connect him to President Trump.
Court documents show that Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein's notorious "Lolita Express" party plane. There's no indication that Donald Trump ever did. But in a segment on Epstein on her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid managed to refer to President Trump six times, accompanied by extended photo displays of Trump in Epstein's company. Number of times Reid mentioned Lolita Express frequent flyer Clinton? A New York bagel, of course.
The producer of Tom Arnold's upcoming series, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes on Viceland has admitted there is just one little problem with that effort. They have not actually found any tape that could bring Trump down.
During their Tuesday evening newscasts, all of the “big three” networks ignored explosive new details about former President Bill Clinton’s relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein. “It’s no secret that former President Bill Clinton had a relationship with Jeffrey Epstein,” reported Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Special Report, “A prominent businessman who went to jail as part of a plea deal he reached while being investigated amid allegations that he was a pedophile, who had sex with scores of underage girls and used his staff to procure the victims.”
In the many decades I have had the pleasure of covering the Clintons, I have developed several themes about them that have, over the years, been validated by fact. One theme is that there is a Clinton curse.
Broadcast-network comedy-talk programs such as The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon took two weeks off over Christmas and New Year’s. Real Time With Bill Maher got a winter break college students would envy (two months -- remember, it’s not TV, it’s HBO) but the show returns Friday night, and to promote it, Maher gave an interview to The Daily Beast. He and the Beast’s Marlow Stern talked mostly about the presidential races, though Maher fulminated a bit about how one of his major hobbyhorses, the Tea Party, allegedly came to be.
Joe Scarborough blew the whistle on the MSM this morning regarding its unwillingess to say publicly what people in major newsrooms have incessantly discussed--Bill Clinton's mistresses and the lurid tales involving Jeffrey Epstein, he of Orgy Island infamy, and Clinton.
But if the MSM won't "go there," on today's Morning Joe Scarborough said that Donald Trump indubitably will: "That's what makes Donald Trump more dangerous than any person out there. He will bring up stuff that nobody else will bring up and anybody thinking in the Clinton campaign that they're going to get a break because it's Donald Trump doing this instead of Jeb Bush, you are in la la land."
You know how Hillary Clinton can make a big splash when she announces that she is running for president? Not with some old fashioned message. No, the key to making herself the inevitable nominee according to New Republic senior editor Elspeth Reeve is to use the right apps for the announcement.
New York Times reporter Amy Chozick was “warned” on Twitter by a group called “HRC Super Volunteers” against using so-called “sexist” words about Hillary Clinton. The words they deemed “coded sexism” include:“polarizing,” “calculating,” “disingenuous,” “insincere,” “ambitious,” “inevitable,” “entitled,” “over confident,” “secretive,” “will do anything to win,” “represents the past,” and “out of touch.”
For added effect, the group threatened, “You are on notice that we will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism.”
Ever since former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani stated on Thursday that “I do not believe that the president loves America,” the people in the “mainstream media” have produced more than 8,000 articles on the comment -- which was made at a private Manhattan dinner for 60 or so political donors -- in just a few days.
That led Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee, to release a statement on Tuesday in which he noted: “Coverage has been fueled by reporters grasping for new angles or asking any Republican in range of a microphone to respond to his comments and other unrelated questions.”
