During MSNBC’s live coverage of Attorney General William Barr’s Wednesday congressional hearing on the Mueller report, known liar Brian Williams had the audacity to interrupt that coverage simply to smear Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham a liar. Graham’s supposed untruth? Accurately stating that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found “no collusion” between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.
Despite the efforts of some people in the “mainstream media” to downplay the information in Robert Mueller’s report that exonerates President Trump of collusion with Russia, at least one person has stepped in to point out the overwhelming bias on the issue over the past two years. While a guest on the America’s Newsroom program on Monday morning, veteran Fox News analyst Brit Hume hammered media coverage of the investigation, which he called not only “bad reporting,” but also “the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime.”
How harsh on President Trump does someone have to be to satisfy CNN? On the floor of the Senate, for gosh sakes, Lindsey Graham called President Trump's decision to withdraw from Syria "a stain on the honor of the United States." It doesn't get much more critical than that. But even that stinging rebuke of the President was insufficient for Alisyn Camerota. On CNN's New Day this morning, Camerota was offended that Graham had gone on to call Trump's declaration of victory over ISIS "fake news."
When does the Associated Press consider an opinion piece on immigration to be straight news? According to an article posted on Tuesday morning, it’s apparently whenever it provides a chance to attack President Trump as “making another hardline immigration play” while “seeking to energize his supporters and help Republicans keep control of Congress.”
The cast of Morning Joe (Mika, Joe, Meacham, and Barnicle) put on their bitter-beer faces. They castigate Republicans for celebrating the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh with brewskis, and rip Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell for their roles. "A shabby Senate, with a short-sighted, selfish, cynical, Majority Leader who cared more about his political party and his own political ambitions than the country itself," said Joe.
WASHINGTON — If you have read enough pro-Kavanaugh articles, give this one a pass. You are not going to like it. Yet if you have not heard enough, you will probably like this one. I have nothing but congratulatory things to say about Judge Brett Kavanaugh. As with Justice Clarence Thomas, he is a fighter. He is a gifted defender of the truth. And he is worthy of serving on the highest court in the land. I would trust my case with him, and I would trust yours, too, whether you are with him now or against him. He believes in the rule of law.
Appearing on Fox News Monday night, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham blasted NBC News for airing an interview with Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick despite her serious credibility problems and the network being unable to corroborate any of her claims. The lawmaker told host Sean Hannity that the accusations were “a bunch of garbage.”
[LANGUAGE WARNING] The savaging of Lindsey Graham intensified on Sunday night as journalists seethed over his dramatic defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week. Writer and MSNBC personality John Heilemann, on his Showtime series The Circus labeled the Republican senator a “fucking lunatic” for defending the Supreme Court nominee.
During the show trial against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last Thursday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (NC) stood out as the Supreme Court nominee’s most ardent defender when he took on the liberal smear machine in a fiery speech that rallied many on the right. That fire was still present during an interview on ABC’s This Week where he took the liberal media head on and called them out for failing to scrutinize Kavanaugh’s accusers.
Kathleen Parker is going against the grain of her Washington Post colleagues on Sunday. While the Outlook section carries headlines like "Kavanaugh is lying, his upbringing explains why," and "Why senators 'believe' Ford, but side with Kavanaugh, Parker hailed Senator Lindsey Graham as "Sen. Jiminy Cricket," the conscience of the Senate.
On Friday's Real Time show, liberal HBO comedian Bill Maher made gay jokes about Senator Senator Lindsey Graham, including one in which he suggested that the South Carolina Republican needs his "dead boyfriend," John McCain, to make him stand up to President Donald Trump.
The New York Times gave vastly different views of Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford regarding their extraordinary testimony, consistently chiding Kavanaugh as "angry" and "aggrieved" and calling his judicial temperament into question -- as if anger wouldn't be a perfectly reasonable response to false allegations of sexual assault. The paper was clearly disappointed with Sen. Lindsey Graham for his fierce attacks on Democrats.
