The liberal media’s latest go-to tactic is to claim that President Trump said something without proof or evidence when a statement is generally known to accurate. In the most recent case, Sunday’s edition of ABC’s Good Morning America denied evidence that the Democratic Party encourages illegal immigration resulting in children being put in dangerous situations, even deadly ones.
On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, host Mitchell asserted that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was "blaming the victim" when she correctly warned that it is very dangerous to cross the desert illegally in reaction to recent news of a child dying possibly of dehydration after her father crossed the desert illegally from Mexico. Correspondent Jacob Soboroff suggested that the Trump administration is "forcing" illegals to cross under dangerous circumstances through the desert because of long wait times at legal ports of entry.
Monday at the Hot Topics table, Senator Bernie Sanders joined the hosts of The View for an interview that was supposed to be about his book, but turned out instead to be about criticizing President Trump.
Morning Joe introduces Lauren Leader as the founder of a "non-partisan" organization. She proceeds to call on the military to disobey Commander-in-Chief Trump's orders on protecting the border from illegal entry.
The camp set up for the Central American caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening.
The first wave of 800 migrants from the much larger caravan arrived that the U.S./Mexico border crossing in Tijuana, Mexico Wednesday. According to reports, some of the migrants have been climbing the fortified border wall there to taunt Border Patrol agents, with some evening jumping into America illegally. Despite these facts, ABC and NBC ignored the caravan’s arrival with the latter suggesting the migrants were still a week away.
The same night the liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were acting as though Trump’s combative press conference on Wednesday was some kind of affront to the First Amendment, the Washington D.C. area home of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was under assault by a radical leftist mob shouting threats. During both their morning and evening broadcasts Thursday, ABC and NBC ignored the actual attack on someone’s free speech.
Wednesday night on the Fox News Channel, primetime host Sean Hannity accused Democrats of hypocrisy for calling for civility in the wake of the pipe bomb scare late Tuesday and Wednesday. Hannity first pointed out that just one day before the wave of mail bombs targeting well-known Democrats began surfacing, former Vice President Joe Biden compared President Trump to segregationist George Wallace.
Today's National lead: Long-shot socialist in Maine! Liam Stack’s lead National story in Tuesday’s New York Times served as a flattering profile of the Democratic Socialists of America: “In Maine, Freewheeling Capitalism Hits a Bump -- Democrat in Senate Race Is a Long Shot, but His Socialist Solutions Seem to Be Resonating.” When was this “freewheeling” nonregulated capitalism Stack speaks of? And how does an admitted long-shot candidate nab the lead story slot in the Times? Political affinity, most likely.
Being screamed at in restaurants: it’s not just for GOP pals and Trump administration types anymore.
On Friday's night's All Things Considered, the Week in Politics segment began by pushing the theme that the Republican rhetoric about "mobs" is all wrong, and will harm them in the midterms. NPR anchor Ailsa Chang brought no context about protesters mobbing the front door of the Supreme Court, or screaming Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant. She said the "mob" has a lot of women in it, so the M-word is damaging. At least David Brooks said "I don't think so."
