Thursday on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time, former Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta was invited by host Chris Cuomo to talk about the Inspector General’s Report released earlier that day. Podesta took the opportunity to argue that Hillary Clinton was the real victim.
Amy Chozick, who covered the Hillary Clinton campaign for the New York Times, sports sackcloth and ashes for the sin of actually reporting on publicly available emails from the Clinton campaign -- while ignoring all the dirty details in the emails themselves: "But it wasn’t a scoop. It was more like a bank heist....I didn’t push to hold off on publishing them until we could have a less harried discussion. I didn’t raise the possibility that we’d become puppets in Vladimir Putin’s master plan."
Tuesday’s New York Times featured a humdrum personal profile of its own reporter, Maggie Haberman, whose only point of interest was an offensive comparison the White House reporter made between Michael Bloomberg’s 2001 run for mayor of New York City and Donald Trump’s run for president in 2016. In both cases, “an unprecedented form of terror in an election” resulted in an unlikely result. One was an Islamist terrorist attack that murdered over 3000 people; the other, some embarrassing campaign emails that may have damaged Clinton’s prospects over Trump. Same thing, really, right?
MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor ripped the liberal media for its anti-Trump, pro-Clinton bias. “There is no neutrality at The New York Times,” Gainor told After the Bell host Dan Asman before pointing out the double standard in how differently the Times covered Democratic and Republican presidents.
After its favored candidate lost the presidential election in shocking fashion, the New York Times is suddenly wide awake to the threat posed by Russia. It devoted 8,000 words and Wednesday’s front page to “Hacking The Democrats – How Russia Honed its Cyberpower and Trained It on an American Election.” The accompanying photo of the filing cabinet broken into during Watergate made it clear the Times considered this a national (and Democratic) tragedy. But the paper has not always been so concerned about the Russia threat, especially when it’s a Republican presidential candidate sounding the alarm. It's tone toward WikiLeaks has also changed since it was gleefully puttting hacked foreign policy memos in print.
USA Today assigned three primary reporters, four additional contributors and two researchers to its coverage of the left's attempt to convince Republican Electoral College electors to betray their states' voters and their party.
The result, published early Wednesday morning, is "Harassment or Hail Mary? Electors feel besieged." Despite throwing all those resources into the story, there is no mention at all of the many violent threats directed at electors reported elsewhere, up to and including death threats.
The Associated Press and reporter Josh Lederman are feeling sorry for outgoing President Barack Obama. Shortly after 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, in advance of Obama's last foreign tour, the AP's headline at Lederman's dispatch read: "On last foreign tour, Obama must find a way to explain Trump."
Lederman wrote that our poor, put-upon president "must pivot and reassure the U.S. and other countries that somehow, it will all be OK." It's almost as if he needs to provide "safe spaces" on Air Force One for grieving foreign snowflakes who are apparently having as hard a time accepting reality as many U.S. college students.
On Friday’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell lashed out on the Fox Business Network (FBN) at CNN’s atrocious handling of the Donna Brazile scandal and the media’s collective refusal to report heavily on the WikiLeaks e-mails illustrating a pattern of collusion between reporters and the Clinton campaign.
In 2015 assistant attorney general Peter Kadzik gave a heads-up to the Clinton campaign that a Department of Justice (DOJ) official would be testifying to Congress about State Department e-mails — in fact the subject line of the e-mail was “heads up.” So how much time did the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks devote to this latest bombshell from WikiLeaks release? Just 40 seconds.
The left’s view of the media is riddled with hypocrisy, and Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden is a perfect example. “The press is psychotic!!!” She wrote in an email to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta in July 2015, “But I will tweet now w/o actually saying they are psychotic.”
