Conservative media reporter-turned-liberal charlatan and CNN senior political reporter Oliver Darcy rallied behind the Biden campaign on Wednesday night to defend the Joe Biden campaign, gushing about their strongly-worded letter to The New York Times demanding an end to coverage critical of the former Vice President and his corrupt son Hunter. Darcy filed the Reliable Sources newsletter in place of boss Brian Stelter, leading off with an exclusive and the subhead, “Biden campaign blasts NYT in letter to Dean Baquet.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden got a lot of positive coverage from the liberal media on Wednesday after he called for President Trump’s impeachment while campaigning against him in New Hampshire. The major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) hoisted up Biden’s demands with a combined 4 minutes and 20 seconds of largely enthusiastic coverage.
Facebook is standing by its new approach to political advertising, despite sharp criticism from the left. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign asked Facebook to remove President Trump’s ad on Oct. 8, according to The New York Times.
Longtime Obama official Susan Rice was guest on Wednesday’s The View, to do what else? Bash the Trump administration. Well that’s not all. Joy Behar also invited Rice to defend her former Obama administration colleague, Vice President Joe Biden, about his Ukraine scandal too, of course.
During her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson informed viewers that the Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was “furious” that the “media is even covering” any allegations of corruption against his son Hunter. Later in the day, fellow anchor Andrea Mitchell touted a reporter sympathizing with Biden about the “brutal” campaign.
President Trump is a bull in a china shop. He says inadvisable things to inadvisable people, mainly because he is inadvisable — literally no one can advise him. The vast majority of things Trump says are ignored or brushed off by those who understand the difference between bloviation and manipulation. Still, Trump's constant stream of noise can make it difficult to tell the difference between the two.
The New York Times has used the term “unsubstantiated” with embarrassing regularity to talk about the charges of Biden family nepotism highlighted by President Trump. Virtually every Times story on the Biden allegations employs that adjective as a warning, signaling Republican partisanship. It’s quite the double standard. The sharp contrast was also demonstrated during the 2004 presidential campaign pitting incumbent George W. Bush against Democratic Sen. John Kerry, whose Vietnam war record came under assault by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. “Unsubstantiated” was also the paper’s favorite word to describe the allegations.
The View hosts were desperate to make the Joe/Hunter Biden Ukraine controversy go away on Thursday’s show. So much so, that Meghan McCain begged Biden to come out publicly and “explain it away.” On the other hand, her co-host Joy Behar, like the media, didn’t want to touch the topic, to avoid implicating Biden. She complained it was “too complicated.”
During a laughable report on Wednesday’s Today show about corruption concerns swirling around Joe Biden and his son Hunter, NBC News White House correspondent Hallie Jackson cited Biden spokespersons seven different times to supposedly fact check and unsurprisingly dismiss any accusations of wrongdoing.
While the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were trying to sweep the corruption accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter under the rug, Fox News correspondent Mark Meredith pulled out a microscope and shared what he found on Tuesday’s edition of Special Report.
Back when reruns were a staple of summer programming, television networks aired repeats of their programs, giving viewers another opportunity to see what they had already seen. Democratic politicians are now conducting their own version of reruns. The same bunch who brought us the failed Russian “collusion” story, the sliming of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and charges that President Trump is a racist (which also failed, given the spectacular increase in minority employment), are now rerunning the same show with different characters.
Near the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, panelist Hugh Hewitt responded to a question by host Chuck Todd regarding whether or not the Ukraine scandal would hurt Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden. In his response, Hewitt stressed the importance of relying on “one standard” when it comes to surveilling Americans; arguing that if enough probable cause existed to use a FISA warrant against Carter Page, there was definitely enough evidence to justify a warrant to surveil Hunter Biden.
