I have to admit it is breathtaking. There is one media figure after another simply making up American history from scratch. In particular the history of presidents speaking to the nation on the Fourth of July, not to mention the presence of tanks and other military hardware at national celebrations in Washington.
All kinds of Democrats said it, so why not their allies in the media? I’m speaking here of the media chorus that insisted — insisted — that what President Trump, in an Oval Office address to the nation in January called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border — was in fact nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”
A Senate Armed Services Committee hearing took an unexpected turn Wednesday when Arizona Senator Martha McSally announced that she was raped by a senior officer during her time in the Air Force. Not surprisingly, two liberal CNN guests on Wednesday’s The Lead used McSally’s testimony as an excuse to attack President Trump and even McSally herself.
During Tuesday’s The Lead, the CNN panel complained that President Trump did not act like a “Consoler-in-Chief” on the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, describing his behavior as “uber inappropriate” and suggested he may be “missing a human screw.”
On the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Lead, political commentator and former Obama administration official Jen Psaki suggested that the President was “almost gleeful and excited about” Hurricane Florence, its size, and possible destruction as if it’s an accomplishment he helped engineer.
During a 10-minute break Wednesday afternoon in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, CNN’s assembled panelists and supposed journalists boasted of Rhode Island Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse decrying money in politics to Judge Kavanaugh and bemoaning the nominee refusing to commit to saving portions of ObamaCare.
Early Wednesday morning, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon descended into the gutter by suggesting that President Donald Trump had no role in writing his speech to Congress because it sounded as though it was “written by a college student for someone else trying to use big words” Trump wasn’t smart enough to understand. Of course, as some might remember, this is the same CNN program that the President called out during his marathon February 16 press conference as being devoutly anti-Trump.
As Mike Ciandella at NewsBusters noted Thursday morning, newly obtained documents indicate that the White House and Secretary of State John Kerry's underlings worked aggressively to "crush" any chance that he might be questioned about Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email account for public business or her stationing of a private server registered under a pseudonym at her Chappaqua, New York home on the March 15 edition of Face the Nation — and he wasn't. Fox News, apparently alone among the major broadcast and cable networks, aired a segment on the matter on Friday. It included a weak response from CBS News. Additionally, a review of the transcript from the related Face the Nation broadcast shows that Mrs. Clinton's email and private server were discussed — just not with Kerry.
In her first TV interview since the State Department admitted to having intentionally deleted portions of a State Department press briefing, former State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki met the wrath of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Friday afternoon as he minced no words in calling out Psaki and her predecessors for lying about the Iran nuclear agreement.
During his “Buried Lead” segment on Thursday’s The Lead, CNN host Jake Tapper presented an incredibly thorough takedown of the State Department for not only aspects of the Iran nuclear deal but also their lies concerning intentional editing of press briefing videos dating back to 2013 concerning the deal.
CBS This Morning and NBC's Today on Thursday followed in the footsteps of their networks' newscasts the previous evening in failing to cover the State Department's Wednesday admission about an intentional edit of an online video posting of a 2013 briefing. To their credit, ABC's GMA aired a news brief on the controversy on Thursday. CNN's AC360 devoted a full report to the revelation on Wednesday. Thursday's New Day also gave a brief on the story.
Manipulating video to hide the truth seems to be all the rage in politics these days and so is the liberal media’s refusal cover it. “President Obama's State Department is admitting tonight that it deliberately edited out of its video records an exchange between our Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen and the department's then spokeswoman [Jen Psaki],” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier, Wednesday evening's Special Report. And all evening news broadcasts from the big three networks completely ignored it.
