Leaving the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing to spend two segments hyperventilating over Bob Woodward’s upcoming book on the Trump White House, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin gave CNN contributor and anti-Trumper John Dean the floor to slam Kavanaugh. In addition, Baldwin misled viewers by not only just footnoting that Dean will testify later this week at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, but did not mention how he would be doing it as a witness on behalf of Senate Democrats to thwart Kavanaugh’s chances of reaching the Supreme Court.
The New York Times and Time magazine are both looking to the past as a way to highlight an impeachment drive against Donald Trump. Time magazine connected Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy to the President. Many liberal outlets aren’t fans of the constitutional originalist perspective. But the Times on Thursday offered this headline: “Not an Impeachable Offense? The Framers Might Disagree.”
This morning, the news and cable networks were abuzz with talk of “Watergate” and impeachment, salivating over the idea that Michael Cohen’s plea deal would lead to Trump’s ousting. Over and over again, the media compared the betrayal of the President’s former personal lawyer to Nixon’s scandal, calling Trump an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a scandal that was as big as Watergate.
During Monday's edition of Anderson Cooper 360, two major players in the Watergate investigation drew parallels between the Russia investigation and the scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon, arguing that "Trump is Nixon on steroids and stilts" and warning of a "constitutional crisis."
CNN’s organizational hypocrisy was on full display Wednesday night as host Erin Burnett kicked off OutFront by declaring that “Republicans are at it again” with their crazy conspiracy theories! Turns out, the alleged conspiracy theory was just a question raised by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson in his Homeland Security Committee’s interim report on the Clinton e-mail scandal.
On Wednesday afternoon, Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes made his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, taking the media to task over their raucous, premature “dancing...in the streets” over the Donald Trump Jr.-Russian lawyer story.
A crazed leftist attempts to kill Republicans on a baseball field, a local candidate beats up a reporter, and an increase in traffic deaths. What do these all have in common? Liberal journalists managed to blame all of these incidents on President Donald Trump. The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks.
CNN senior legal analyst Jeffery Toobin once again proclaimed that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice on CNN's New Day Friday morning. He stated that he thought “it’s even clearer that this is a case of obstruction of justice,” after the Comey testimony.
What better way for CBS This Morning to spin James Comey’s appearance in front of Congress on Thursday then to bring on Watergate journalist Bob Woodward? In a total non-surprise, the veteran journalist compared Comey to his iconic source, Deep Throat.
Chris Matthews freaked out over James Comey’s testimony in front on Congress on Thursday, assailing Donald Trump as worse than Richard Nixon and sneering that the current President isn’t “used to the fact that he’s constrained by the Constitution.”
On Tuesday, disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor and fake news connoisseur Dan Rather was somehow a relevant voice on MSNBC’s Hardball, raging at former FBI Director Jim Comey for admitting in prepared remarks for Thursday’s hearing that he told President Trump that he wasn’t under FBI investigation.
Following Wednesday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in which Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers both denied that the White House tried to pressure them to drop the Russia investigation, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was in a panic. She accused the respected intelligence officials of “stonewalling” and providing “non-answers.”
