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.
The anchors on PBS and NPR share the robotic talking point that there's "no evidence" that Joe or Hunter Biden "did anything wrong" in Ukraine. On Wednesday night, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo patiently answered fairly pointed questions from PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff, but he couldn't abide the Biden talking point, telling Woodruff she sounded like the Democratic National Committee.
It’s been awhile since our last slideshow, NewsBusters readers. Thankfully, Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC came up clutch with reams of liberal nonsense from not just host Chris Matthews, but a cast of characters serving as yes men and women for this pro-impeachment pep rally. From leveling conspiracy theories to engaging in conspiracy theories, it was another case study in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
If you have been watching MSNBC over the past three years, you would find host after host and guest after guest arguing that President Trump has nothing to complain about with all the investigations into alleged his wrongdoings, after all nobody is above the law. Nobody, that is except for Hillary Clinton or any of her former aides. Any investigation into her is a waste of taxpayer dollars and a distraction from what really matters: Trump's misdeeds.
Overnight, one of Saudi Arabia’s oil refineries (one of the largest was in the world) was the target of drone attacks that caused the county to shut down roughly five percent of the world’s oil output. According to the U.S., the evidence pointed to Iran. But, during NBC’s Sunday Today, the network showed whose side they stood on and defended the Iranians.
When a conservative guest appears on CNN, he or she can expect to be hammered by a host attempting to drive a wedge between Republicans. That’s what happened early Thursday afternoon, when Rand Paul was on the CNN Right Now program and anchor Brianna Keilar attempted to use an “odd feud” between the Kentucky Congressman and Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney to accuse them of engaging in a “butt-kissing contest” that’s “unbecoming of two members of Congress.”
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday repeated a nasty quote about Mike Pompeo, deriding the Secretary of State as a “heat-seeking missile for Trump’s” ass. King interviewed Pompeo for Tuesday’s show and parroted the vulgar comment from a New Yorker piece. She regurgitated, “One former American ambassador who shall not be named, this is delicate, describes you like ‘a heat-seeking missile for Trump's bottom.’ Except he used the other word.”
The New York Times wrung its hands over Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s review of the U.S. government’s international human rights policy, using his Christian faith against him while using the most liberal definition of human rights to try and paint the Trump administration as reactionary and anti-gay: “New Human Rights Panel Spurs Misgivings.” Tuesday’s report by Edward Wong and Eileen Sullivan warned they did not approve of Pompeo getting his faith intertwined with the administration's policy positions: "Mr. Pompeo is an evangelical Christian who is open about how his religious beliefs help shape actions and policies."
When Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough runs out of things to use in slamming President Trump, the MSNBC anchor is more than happy to instead roast someone who is a member of the GOP official’s administration. That was the case on Monday, when Scarborough used an interview of Mike Pompeo by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to hammer the secretary of state as “a joke” and “a disgrace” who “made a fool of himself” while lying for the President.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, after John Avlon recited a piece attacking the Donald Trump administration's reaction to alarmist global warming predictions, co-host John Berman likened Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the villain Lex Luthor, who infamously planned to mass murder Americans on the West Coast so he could benefit financially, in the 1978 film Superman.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the release of self-admitted “American Taliban” member John Walker Lindh “unexplainable and unconscionable.” Lindh, who was paroled last Thursday from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, served 17 years of a 20-year sentence for illegally aiding Taliban forces. Lindh had joined the terrorist organization before September 11, 2001. He was in Afghanistan at the time and was also there when a group of Taliban prisoners murdered CIA officer Johnny Micheal Spann.
It seems that in the eyes of NBC News, the evil Iranian regime can do no wrong even as all the evidence points to their involvement in the sabotage (via explosives) of four oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. Despite U.S. warnings over a week ago about such attacks from Iran or its proxies, Monday's NBC Nightly News projected skepticism with anchor Lester Holt calling the explosions “a mysterious so-called sabotage attack”.
