On Wednesday night, NewsBusters examined the live coverage the top three cable news networks (CNN, FNC, and MSNBC) devoted to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and, most notably, far-left, pro-impeachment CNN only covered live 33.4 percent of the hearing. But when it came time for Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, CNN carried 99.9 percent of the primetime House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing.
Senate Republicans grilled Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Wednesday, on how his probe could determine there was no political bias at the FBI against then-candidate Trump, when he couldn’t uncover a reasonable explanation for their “gross abuse” of the system, as Attorney General William Barr put it. Well, ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir continued to carry water for the FBI and claimed there was “no spying” despite the fact, the IG report exposed that there was.
On the front page of Saturday’s New York Times, reporter Catie Edmondson concerned herself with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is evidently being dragooned into defending President Trump against impeachment the way he stuck up for Judge Brett Kavanaugh: “Prodded by the Right, Graham Joins the Impeachment Battle.” Judging by her choice of adjectives in these passages, Edmondson has not gotten over Kavanaugh’s success in earning a seat on the Supreme Court.
Careful Colbert, your impeachment excitement is showing again. Many are aware of Senator Kamala Harris’ controversial legal track record from her tenure as California’s Attorney General. However, Colbert acted as though he had yet to receive this memo as he requested Harris’ prosecutorial input into the impeachment inquiry on Thursday’s The Late Show.
To show their frustration with the shady way House Democrats were conducting their partisan impeachment crusade, Senator Lindsey Graham (SC) led 41 other Republican Senators in writing a resolution demanding transparency and fairness. But ABC and NBC ignored and minimized their efforts while claiming congressional Republicans were actually angry with President Trump.
It’s another week of new sitcom episodes on CBS, so you know what that means! Time for another peek into the strange, liberal mind of the “King of Sitcoms” Chuck Lorre via his egoistic vanity cards. This time, he’s taking shots at Trump’s main allies, claiming that they’ve “surrendered their dignity and integrity,” and “their souls” in exchange for power and prestige.
One of the fiercest critics of the House Democrats' impeachment efforts to this point has been South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and as such he made himself a target for a self-righteous panel on Wednesday's Andrea Mitchell Reports. The panel anti-Graham segment that eventually morphed into an anti-Senate Republican segment was an exercise in hypocrisy, contradiction, and historical revisionism.
Margaret Brennan on Sunday's Face The Nation seemed to place her faith in the veracity of second hand information produced by the whistleblower concerning the phone call between the Ukrainian president and President Donald Trump. Secondhand information which could be properly labeled as "hearsay" which is what guest Senator Lindsey Graham called it.
In Joy Reid’s never-ending quest to prevent President Trump from being re-elected in 2020, the MSNBC host has continued to slam the people who voted for the Republican occupant of the White House in 2016. On Sunday's AM Joy, she received support from MSNBC regular Tiffany Cross, managing editor of The Beat DC website, who claimed that “maybe Donald Trump is the secret Muslim president that they feared Barack Obama was.”
CNN host Chris Cuomo used President Trump’s tweet criticizing the left-wing Democratic congresswomen known as “The Squad” as an excuse to trash the President and his supporters during his almost always pompous “Closing Argument” Monday night. Throughout most of the segment, the chyron at the bottom of the screen read “Trump Uses Racism as Political Tool to Rally Hateful Voters.”
Left-wing group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action went on a Twitter rampage over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s, (R-SC), criticism of a group of freshman legislators as anti-Semitic. Bend the Arc is the result of a merger of The Progressive Jewish Alliance and Jewish Funds for Justice which joined forces in 2011. It was founded and funded by George Soros’ son Alexander Soros.
Not just a CNN co-host anymore! Alisyn Camerota is now also serving as a volunteer Democrat strategist. On this morning's New Day, Camerota suggested that in order to avoid being branded by Republicans, Dems should "come up with some sort of new name" for "socialist."
