CNN host Chris Cuomo was apparently under the impression that being afflicted with the Wuhan Virus gave him free rein to throw out all pretense of journalism and turn his show, Prime Time, into his personal forum to lash out at President Trump. Last week he cast doubt on whether we could all survive the crisis under Trump’s leadership. Then on Tuesday, he blasted the President’s positive messaging as “bullsh*t” (uncensored).
During an interview with likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden, conducted on Monday and aired Tuesday morning on NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show, co-host Craig Melvin teed up the 2020 presidential candidate to criticize the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Missing from the softball exchange was any mention of Biden attacking the President’s China travel ban in January that has been credited with slowing the spread.
On Friday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, Walter Isaacson, the former editor of Time magazine, interviewed Jon Meacham, the former editor of Newsweek magazine. At this time, Meacham poses as a pseudo-impartial historian, just as PBS poses as an unbiased channel of intelligent information. Isaacson preposterously suggested "I've never known your political orientation" before asking Meacham why he endorses Joe Biden.
Not long after they had insisted President Trump treated the coronavirus press briefings as though they were “a reality TV show,” ABC and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos invited former Vice President Joe Biden onto This Week to buoy his oxygen-less campaign. One of the softballs the Clinton lackey tossed to Biden encouraged him to blame Trump for the deaths caused by the coronavirus. While the crisis was only part of their discussion, Stephanopoulos steered clear of the recent sexual assault allegations against his guest. Something he was used to doing from his time in the Clinton White House.
On Wednesday's Tonight Show, NBC's Jimmy Fallon interviewed Biden and didn't ask a single tough question -- which no one who watches Fallon would expect. He tends to love-bomb whoever is booked. Fallon gushed to Biden that he was "so eloquent and beautifully spoken" at a TIME 100 gala they attended, and when Biden recited poetry on stage, "it was mind-blowing."
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign released a video in March deceptively depicting President Donald Trump calling the coronavirus a “hoax.” Twitter refused to label or take the video down, in accordance with its manipulated media policies.
On March 25, Tara Reade, a former employee of Senator Joe Biden, made a disturbing accusation about her old boss. She claimed in a podcast with Katie Halper of Rolling Stone that Biden sexually assaulted her in a secluded area of the Capitol in 1993, pushing her against a wall, kissing her and penetrating her with his fingers. Where's the story from the Brett Kavanaugh-crushing media?
In a softball interview with likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden aired late Tuesday night, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams urged the former Vice President to hold President Trump personally “culpable” and “responsible” for coronavirus deaths in the United States.
The New York Times front page on Tuesday tried to help jump-start Joe Biden’s moribund social media presence in “Trump Won the Internet. Democrats Are Scrambling to Take It Back.” Co-authors Jim Rutenberg (author of the August 2016 front-page screed arguing the media had a duty to oppose candidate Trump) and reporter Matthew Rosenberg strategized alongside the Democrats on how to regain the White House from Trump and his “loyalists.” The Times got awfully defensive on Biden’s behalf, labeling "extremist sites" that would dare to attack the leading Democratic candidate with "disinformation."
Huh. That headline sounds like something NewsBusters would write for an April Fool’s Day post. But, to borrow a favorite quote one of the two subjects of the post below, this was not a joke. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin ended 2020 Democrat Joe Biden’s latest interview by gushing that “your strength” has been campaigning and making direct contact with voters (often through touch).
Arguing that the current health care system is failing at a time of great importance, MSNBC Live guest host Yasmin Vossoughian tried to use the worsening coronavirus pandemic to push likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden further to the left on the issue and get him to support a single payer system.
It’s been nearly a week since a former Joe Biden staffer leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them. In that same time period, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.
