On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough is angry at the Democrat presidential contenders for having, in last night's debate, focused on the details dividing them regarding health care. He suggests that they should instead paint the bigger picture: "the Democratic Party supports universal healthcare as a right for all Americans! Donald Trump wants to destroy your right to having health care as an American! A guarantee of that health care." Later, Scarborough mistakenly suggests that Alex Trebek is the host of "Wheel of Fortune." Willie Geist politely points out that show's host is Pat Sajak.
On today's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch urged the Democrats participating in tonight's debate to "assault" President Trump, whom Deutsch describes as an "ogre." Deutsch claims nothing else matters because "our democracy is under siege."
The MRC found ABC’s World News Tonight awarded a majority of its news coverage to just one candidate: former Vice President Joe Biden. The ten candidates who will be appearing on tonight’s debate stage — Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Julian Castro and Andrew Yang — collectively received 96 percent of the airtime, while, a majority of the other candidates received less than 60 seconds of airtime on ABC’s evening newscast
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that Democrat insiders see Joe Biden's campaign as a "slow-motion train derailment" and that he will not make it to the nomination. Instead, Elizabeth Warren is best-positioned to win the nomination. The panel expresses concern that Warren would lose to Trump. Mika Brzezinski says Biden is the Democrats' "best bet" for winning the presidency, and expresses the hope that he will put in a strong performance in this week's debate.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough cites a poll showing that, in the wake of the first three Democrat debates, Republican voter ID has risen to equal that of Democrats. Scarborough blames it on the radical positions the Dems adopted in the debates, on issues from illegal immigration to healthcare to debt forgiveness. Willie Geist observes that Joe Biden has remained in the lead despite his stumbles because he has not gone into that radical territory.
From June 1 through August 31, the networks devoted 838 minutes of airtime — nearly 14 hours — to coverage of President Trump personally, and the spin of his coverage during these three months was 90% negative. Meanwhile, the 21 Democratic candidates shared 187 minutes of evening news airtime this summer, less than one-fourth of that of Trump alone, with spin that was friendlier than their coverage of the President.
Against the backdrop of last week's mass shooting in Odessa, Texas, and Hurricane Dorian, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle engaged in a panel discussion to talk about whether former Vice President Joe Biden can appeal enough to an uncompromising Generation Z on the issues of gun control and climate policy in order to defeat President Trump should be the Democratic nominee.
On Thursday, we noted CNN's New Day skipped over Joe Biden's bloody eyeball during the seven-hour CNN Town Hall on climate change, despite it being an all-day Drudge Report item. But then something happened that we didn't expect: CNN never reported it. Neither did MSNBC. Neither did ABC, CBS, NBC, or PBS. Even The New York Times and The Washington Post skipped it. Fox News covered it, but not obsessively. Deborah Norville on Inside Edition covered it as no big deal. Why couldn't the others?
The 2020 presidential election is still more than a year away, but that hasn’t kept ratings-starved CNN from announcing that, for some reason, they will hold yet another town hall marathon, set for mid-October in Los Angeles to focusing on what CNN Tonight host Don Lemon said would be "on issues that are important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community."
WASHINGTON -- Recently, in Hanover, New Hampshire, former Vice President Joe Biden — the gaffable Joe Biden — stitched together a stupendous concatenation of gaffes that ought to put him out of the race for the Democratic nomination. But apparently, it will not. This is good news for those of us who like a good laugh or a whole string of good laughs.
Despite Joe Biden's blood-filled eye being arguably the most newsworthy story coming out of CNN's marathon climate town halls, the network never mentioned it during there key 6-9 am shows this morning. That's covering for a Democrat, courtesy the MSM!
After initially grilling former Vice President Joe Biden on being a “gaffe machine,” later on Wednesday’s CBS Late Show, aired early Thursday morning, host Stephen Colbert wondered if the 2020 Democratic frontrunner would appoint his old boss, President Obama, to the Supreme Court if elected.
