Michael Eric Dyson
While CNN is gung-ho in its relentless coverage and criticism of Tuesday’s press conference, the network’s apparently not as interested in correcting its liberal guests less than accurate characterizations of violent left-wing groups.
Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson complained that Donald Trump had "tried to retroactively abort" Barack Obama "from the womb of democracy," accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of being a "Dr. Frankenstein" who had helped birth "monster" Trump, and ended up ranting over Dr. Ben Carson recently including African slaves in a discussion of immigrants whose descendants have benefited from their ancestors' tough journey to America -- even though former President Barack Obama himself has a history of calling slaves "immigrants."
Georgetown professor and contributor to the New York Times Michael Eric Dyson appeared on Wednesday’s The View to promote his new book, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America. ABC gave the former MSNBC analyst plenty of time to talk about his favorite topic: racist white Americans. Dyson called out President Trump in particular as the “manifestation” of white America’s “refusal to grow up” and question the “legitimacy” of America’s greatness.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's New Day on CNN, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC analyst Michael Eric Dyson likened police actions against black Americans to terrorism as CNN's Chris Cuomo argued that many voters were motivated to vote for Donald Trump by non-race-related issues like terrorism from ISIS. Dyson griped: "Color-neutral and ISIS? Many African-American people said, 'Look, we were introduced to terror long before 9/11. The vicious police forces of America that have victimized us and the way in which white supremacy operated.'"
Former MSNBC analyst and current New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson is drawing attention in top newspapers on Sunday for his new book Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America. Carlos Lozada, nonfiction book critic for The Washington Post, even found a way to summarize how inflammatory nonsense could be stuffed into the book.
Continuing “Sore Loser Sunday” in the New York Times, the Sunday Review fans fears of Trump in its selection of outside essays, often with a racial angle. But then the paper’s new Public Editor had to ruin the self-righteous love-in by noting that when it comes to racial diversity, the Times, with its "newsroom's blinding whiteness," fails to practice what it preaches.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN for a discussion of recent high-profile police shootings in which the suspect killed was black, Georgetown University Professor and former MSNBC political analyst MIchael Eric Dyson at one point asserted that "the police are the manifestation of terror against black life" which he claimed "has been rendered vulnerable and disposable in America."
ESPN’s The Undefeated invited Georgetown Sociology Professor and frequent MSNBC guest Michael Eric Dyson to write an article on Colin Kaepernick. Because, after all, what the heck is the difference between ESPN, Georgetown Professors, and MSNBC anyway?
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson was the latest liberal to claim that a general slogan like "Make America Great Again" really has a racist "code" of "white nationalism" as he claimed that even a generic reference to the "nation" of America implies "whiteness" "by default."
On Wednesday's Wolf show on CNN, in the aftermath of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's speech on race in Springfield, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson talked up the views of Democrats in suggesting that Clinton might be better at handling race relations as President than President Barack Obama because she "can talk directly to white people in a way that President Obama might not have been able to." Her premise seemed to be that the onus for improving race relations is primarily on whites being lectured to on the issue.
On Sunday’s ABC roundtable on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, MSNBC pundit and New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson argued with conservative panelists, CNN’s Alex Castellanos and FNC’s Greta Van Susteren over Brexit and how it paralleled with Trump’s appeals to “white racist supremacist nationalism.” By contrast, Dyson stated, Hillary Clinton appealed to America’s “best ideals” and her “greatness” was in “her continuity.”
With all this year's preliminary political events concluded and the Republican National Convention set for July 18-21 in Cleveland, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC analyst and guest host Michael Eric Dyson declared last Wednesday that Americans have a “moral obligation” to protest presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump as a “racist demagogue for president.”
The tumult began when Dyson wrote an article for the New Republic's website entitled “We Must March on Cleveland,” where “we must begin to take our stand against Trump and the malignancy he represents” since the candidate is “the worst of the American political mind and soul.”
