Friday on The View, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was on the show to discuss her 2020 presidential run. Meghan McCain was the only host to ask Harris about her stance on decriminalizing illegal immigration, while the other hosts focused heavily on race-related questions.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle denied that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris might be too far left for some voters and instead tarred critics of the California senator as racists who just thought Harris was “too black.”
Kamala Harris herself couldn't have been tougher on Joe Biden than David Gregory was on CNN's "New Day" this morning. Gregory raked the Dem frontrunner over the coals on numerous issues, saying he looked older, out of touch, had no excuse to be unprepared for Kamala Harris's attack on busing, and was very mistake-prone.
Education and charges of de facto segregation have been causing quite the conversation in the Democratic Party since Kamala Harris and Joe Biden's on-stage fight over busing at the recent Democratic debate. They have argued that it is just horrible that minority students are trapped in failing schools. On Friday's edition of MSNBC Live host Yasmin Vossoughian welcomed Heidi Przybyla and NPR White House Reporter Ayesha Rascoe to hype Democratic candidates speaking the National Education Association, the country's largest union and one of the organizations that is preventing those minority students from going to potentially better schools.
From hoping the first Democratic candidate debates would produce a savior from the “cruel” “dictator” Donald Trump to condemning his “Guantanamo Bay” for children and then raining on the President’s Fourth of July parade, the following are the most obnoxious moments of media bias over the last month.
The likelihood I would ever be invited to serve on a network panel questioning the Democratic presidential candidates is equivalent to an invitation to take the next trip to the moon. Still, as I tortured myself watching the two “debates,” which were not really debates, but mostly a show of memorized sound bites, I thought of unasked questions that ought to have been put to them all
On Monday morning's MSNBC Live, Commentary associate editor Noah Rothman criticized Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris for wanting to bring back busing and said she was playing a dangerous political game in doing so. Rothman's arguments led to a heated argument with Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. that featured constant interruptions.
Fox Business anchor Dagen McDowell happily announced that the U.S. entered a record-setting 10 years of economic expansion July 1. “You have more than 70 percent of people think the economy is good if not great,” she declared. She also mentioned how 70 percent of Americans “like their private health insurance from their employer,” and wondered what “advice” Democrats would use to campaign against the strong economy. “How do you push back on that, given the fact that the economy, as of today, this is the longest economic expansion in history?” she asked.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, regular guest Elie Mystal says the 5-12% of African-Americans who don't support Democrats have "had their vote colonized by the Republicans, or by Russia." He adds, "you can't free everybody."
Joe Biden was never asked about his gaffes, groping or past plagiarism. Elizabeth Warren never had to explain faking Native American ancestry. Cory Booker was never interrogated about his imaginary friend “T-Bone.” The following is a partial list of angles of attack the moderators could have pursued IF they wanted to (like they did with Republicans in 2015) bring up embarrassing, yet legitimate questions about the candidates’ backgrounds.
During an exclusive network interview with California Senator Kamala Harris on Friday, CBS This Morning co-host and Democratic donor Gayle King couldn’t help sounding like an adoring fan as she gushed over the liberal lawmaker’s debate performance. The anchor wondered how Harris would “capitalize on that momentum.”
The gushing love-fest for Senator Kamala Harris was on full display across all of network television after the wrap- up of the second round Democratic primary debate Thursday night. In particular, CNN commentator Van Jones could not contain his enthusiasm for the Senator on the DNC Post Debate Analysis program.
