Shortly before ABC downplayed the anti-Semitic comments of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) on Monday, World News Tonight touted Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) for throwing her hat into the 2020 presidential campaign. But while liberals of ABC were busy touting Klobuchar (and other Democrats), they largely ignored what Politico called the “staff horror stories” plaguing her campaign rollout.
Kate Bennett, a White House reporter for CNN, was one of the first people to break the news on Tuesday that Second Lady Karen Pence would teach art part-time at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, where students may be refused admission or have their enrollment discontinued if a “parent or guardian” violates a “biblical lifestyle.” Then on Wednesday, the reporter tried to defuse criticism that she was too negative regarding the private Catholic school by tweeting: “I am not partisan.”
Joy Reid guest Jason Johnson warns: "I've heard plenty of black women say, if there's not a black woman on this ticket, I'm not voting." And Reid declares that the Democrats: "can't run two white guys," warning that "women are going to be outraged," and "voters of color are going to say: well, then why are we participating?"
Politico Magazine published an article on Tuesday on how to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 with an idea so goofy that you have to wonder if the author, #NeverTrump Juleanna Glover, is secretly working for his re-election. Basically her idea, which was instantly mocked by Politico readers, is that Joe Biden and Mitt Romney form a third party, or "trans-party" as the author put it, in 2020 to run against both Trump and the Democrat presidential nominee.
Despite almost nine minutes of interview time, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell on Thursday posed no tough questions to Joe Biden. Instead, she cheered the Democrat on as the “top choice” for Democrats in 2020 and praised him for “caring deeply about this country.” Pushing the former Vice President from the left, O’Donnell demanded, “If Democrats win the House, do you believe that they may move forward with articles of impeachment?”
On Friday, during a lengthy live interview with Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden on NBC’s Today show, co-host Craig Melvin repeatedly pushed the idea of the former Vice President running for higher office in 2020. The reporter even told Biden: “You sound like a man who wants to run.”
During a live interview with former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday’s Today show, co-host Craig Melvin invited the former Judiciary Committee Chairman to advise the Senate on how to handle a potential hearing with Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. In his response, Biden was given free rein to blast Republicans for trying to “character assassinate” Clarence Thomas accuser Anita Hill and even compared the claims against Kavanaugh to a graphic movie rape scene.
Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity.
From the moment the late Republican Senator John McCain’s Arizona memorial service ended Thursday afternoon, CNN’s assembled panelists continued the embarrassing network’s obsession with tying McCain tributes to President Donald Trump, the latter’s attacks on the former, and how McCain was the anti-Trump.
NPR and other liberal networks fail to acknowledge how their "robust critical discourse" about Trump wasn't there when Obama was president. On Saturday night's All Things Considered, the taxpayer-funded network promoted a murder mystery starring the heroes....Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They acted like everyone would love this "fun newbook." The cheerful, overly familiar online headline was "Barack and Joe Solve a Murder Mystery."
CBS This Morning co-host (and Democratic donor) Gayle King on Thursday angrily reacted to Donald Trump's mocking of potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden. Yet, the very same King in 2012 did not object to Biden smearing Republicans as wanting to put black voters “back in chains.” In fact, she attempted to fix the then-Vice President’s gaffe.
In an attempt to catch conservatives flat-footed in hypocrisy, liberal outlets ended up putting their own foot in their mouth. Addressing the Sarah Huckabee Sanders vs.the Red Hen restaurant incident, liberal media outlets such as The New York Daily News, Vox, and ThinkProgress accused conservatives of a double standard.
