You’ve probably heard already. April 10, was “Equal Pay Day,” a symbolic day media, politicians and celebrities use each year to complain about gender-based pay discrimination — by abusing a statistic that does not illustrate that.
Even though it’s almost three weeks since the shooting on Valentine's Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, liberals and conservatives continue to clash over issues regarding gun control. One of the latest skirmishes involves conservative Jewish columnist Bethany Mandel and Shannon Watts, a founder of Moms Demand Action, a liberal group associated with the Michael Bloomberg-bankrolled gun-control advocacy group Everytown.
Gun control activist and media mogul Michael Bloomberg isn’t just pushing gun control through his activist group — he also has a giant media company to promote those views. Bloomberg media is filled with anti-gun content.
During CBS’s live coverage of the deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Homeland Security correspondent Jeff Pegues showed his liberal bias by peddling dubious statistics from the far-left gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety without vetting their credibility or citing their leftist tilt.
Liberal media bias has existed for years, but in 2017, it appeared to reach unprecedented levels given the media’s hostility to President Donald Trump. The media distorted many stories in 2017, in many different ways. They ranged from lies such as Al Gore’s claim that “Superstorm Sandy” proved a global warming prediction from An Inconvenient Truth was true, to using Big Bird to mislead about public broadcasting budget cuts.
Billionaire media mogul Michael Bloomberg is opening his wallet again to help stop coal — and opening it wide. $114 million wide. Against energy jobs.
During Monday’s newscast, CBS Evening News was irritated by President Trump’s position on climate change and how he was putting America at odds with the rest of the world. “At a U.N. climate conference in Germany today, the Trump administration talked up fossil fuels, including coal,” chided Anchor Anthony Mason. “That puts the U.S. at odds with 194 other nations, but some American entrepreneurs and politicians want to make sure the administration does not have the final word.”
On Wednesday, "the Cook County (Illinois) Board of Commissioners repealed the penny-an-ounce levy on sweetened beverages it passed last November." The inflammatory "Big Soda" label appears frequently in press coverage of this reversal of what the government-always-knows-best crowd had thought was a major nanny-state victory, and reflects the fact that many in the media are quite unhappy with this turn of events.
ABC’s newest entertainer turned activist isn’t backing down, after intense criticism for his recent turns at blaming the right for people dying in a shooting massacre and overturning ObamaCare. Jimmy Kimmel is now actively seeking out media coverage of his left-wing activism, outside of what he does on his late night comedy show.
Stocks continued a record-setting rise, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing at its 41st record high since President Donald Trump’s election. As the records piled up, the liberal broadcasts networks often ignored or downplayed stock market gains. That was true again on Sept. 19, when ABC World News with David Muir and NBC Nightly News omitted the new high from their programs. CBS Evening News brought up the rising stock market, but didn’t specific cite the day’s record.
On Tuesday, Morning Joe did a special 10th Anniversary show with a live studio audience that spent a significant amount of time recounting the show’s more memorable, historic, or simply entertaining moments (at least in the eyes of its hosts and guests). However, in their romp through history, Joe Scarborough and guests like former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg could not help but to completely annihilate any coherent or reasonable understanding of Al Sharpton’s long history of racial incitement and promoting insanely hateful, paranoid conspiracy theories about Jews, whites, and cops for the past four decades.
Anderson Cooper wore his bias on his sleeve in a recent interview with former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Cooper brought Bloomberg on his show June 20, to discuss his new coal documentary and failed to challenge him about the millions the billionaire politician spent to shut down coal plants.
