The hosts of The View revealed the absurd lengths they will go to defend their favored candidate on Friday’s show. After Joe Biden shouted down a Democrat voter on the campaign trail for daring to question why his son was qualified to be on the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, the hosts claimed Biden was just responding like any parent would when their “kid” was attacked.
A retired farmer and Iowa independent confronted former Vice President Joe Biden while on his so-called “no malarkey” campaign tour of the state Thursday, calling him out for his age and son’s dubious business dealings in Ukraine. The former Vice President was obviously triggered when he unloaded on the Iowan (despite being older than him), raising his voice and appearing to call the man “fat.” Almost unbelievably, CBS Evening News lauded Biden by suggesting he was acting like a “prizefighter.”
Every story is supposed to have two sides. But when it came to reporting the impeachment findings of the House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee vs. the Democrats’s report, the nation’s Spanish-speaking news networks tipped the balance in favor of the Democrats, by a margin of nearly 2 to 1.
On Thursday, NBC and MSNBC eagerly touted a new ad from the Biden campaign that featured several liberal journalists attacking President Trump with hostile coverage of his overseas trip to the NATO summit. Despite playing the ad multiple times, none of the reporters acknowledged – or objected – to the fact that members of the press were being used to push a partisan political message.
Many people who watch the top-rated Fox News Channel believe that its viewership is composed entirely of conservatives with no one from the left side of the political aisle there to keep its audience “fair and balanced.” That’s not the perspective of Jessica Tarlov, a “progressive” contributor who regularly participates in FNC programs ranging from the weeknight Hannity show to the noontime Outnumbered series in which “one lucky guy” discusses current issues with four female participants.
There are times when it seems that obviously liberal outlets in the “mainstream media” get away with producing “fake news” without facing any consequences for their poor reporting. That situation will change after Thanksgiving, when California Republican Devin Nunes -- one of the press’s favorite targets during the “impeachment inquiry” held recently in the U.S. House of Representatives -- fights back in federal court against “demonstrably false” articles that have appeared on CNN and the Daily Beast website.
The New York Times conceded a crucial point that flies in the face of liberals who want to tax the ultra-rich and redistribute wealth.
Liberals complain about Big Tech platforms that allow for free and unfettered speech in political advertising. It seems as though some of these companies are listening. Google announced on Nov. 20 that it was restricting microtargeting on election ads on the platform.
A Twitter account that had been previously retweeted by President Trump was censored by the platform. Breaking News Live News had tweeted a story about Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, on Nov. 20.
Late Wednesday night, MSNBC’s post-2020 Democratic debate panelists were locked and loaded, offering praise for South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s “exceptional” and “pretty flawless debate performance,” the sitting U.S. Senators for having done “very well,” and Cory Booker set to gain in the polls. At the other end, panelists trashed former Vice President Joe Biden for a “colossal gaffe” about African-American women Senators and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI) for being “just awful,” “dishonest,” and “spectacularly bad.”
The New York Times has no compunction against going after fellow journalists who fail to sufficiently parrot Democratic-friendly stories. Times reporters Jeremy Peters and Kenneth Vogel investigated the work of fellow journalist John Solomon with their piece, “The Man Trump Trusts for News on Ukraine,” posted on Tuesday. The Biden campaign has fingered journalist Solomon as an enemy for reporting on his son Hunter’s employment by Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company. The Times is doing its best to squash that scandal.
Though he wasn’t included in NBC’s “My Big Idea” series the first time around, Tuesday’s edition of the “What Matters” (only to Democratic voters) series featured former Vice President Joe Biden and his plan for the future of ObamaCare. Spoiler alert, Biden was oblivious to the Obama-like promise he made during the interview while blasting Medicare for all.
