On Tuesday we had an over the top gushy CNN report by Dana Bash on how absolutely wonderful House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is. This bit of excessive saccharine was followed up on Thursday with CNN's New Day host Alisyn Camerota advocating so forcefully for Pelosi as Speaker of the House, it almost sounded like she was auditioning to be her floor manager for that campaign.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough scolds Democrats seeking to prevent Nancy Pelosi from becoming Speaker. Joe repeatedly praises Pelosi as highly "competent," and analogizes her to Alex Cora, manager of the World Series-winning Red Sox, suggesting that denying Pelosi the Speakership would be as illogical as replacing Cora.
Given how tough CNN has been on Donald Trump wielding power during the first two years of his presidency, one should assume that the network will hammer the new Democratic majority in the House, right? No, of course not. In a preview of things to come, the network on Tuesday gushed over incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “the original Badass Woman of Washington.”
In describing the GOP tax cuts, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that they and bonuses American workers were getting were "crumbs." They were "tax cuts for the rich." Some argued that the tax cuts would reduce revenues. Pelosi predicted, "This thing will explode the deficit." How about some tax facts?
Despite the eventual projections that Democrats would retake the House of Representatives on Tuesday night, NBC News was still uneasy, admitting that “Donald Trump and his followers are still intact” and “there is not a blue tsunami” that could be because of the unpopularity of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
As the first polls began the close, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were touting how confident the Democrats appeared despite lingering worries from 2016. As they were nearing the end of their political coverage for World News Tonight, ABC anchor David Muir noted: “the Democrats are projecting confidence as well, as you might expect.”
With her position in the Democratic Party up for grabs as the elections loom, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was the recipient of a loving profile by New York Times reporter Kate Zernike, “Demonized or Celebrated, Pelosi Stands Firm and Refuses to Agonize.” The text box: “A lawmaker eagerly awaits more female legislators to mentor.” Zernike's text is fawning and defensive of her supposed news subject: "The [anti-Pelosi] caricatures come easily."
With the midterm elections less than a week away, the leftist media are ensuring that the screens of America are saturated in the same message: VOTE (for Democrats). And so NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers welcomed crazed conspiracy peddler Michael Moore on his Nov. 1 episode, reported Newsweek.
It's clear someone at Time magazine wasn't a Nancy Pelosi fan when she was Speaker of the House. During her tenure as Speaker from 2007 to 2011, Pelosi didn’t make the cover, but Sarah Palin did....three times. In the fall of 2018, Pelosi has finally arrived inside the red frame....as the news magazine fades in relevance. Molly Ball's cover story was full of gauzy prose about What She Means.
On Wednesday, an open letter was issued to Nancy Pelosi by the historic Californian newspaper, the Sacramento Bee. The editorial board called on her to step aside in the race for Speaker of the House, citing the good of the Democratic Party.

It’s not unusual to hear a prominent politician accusing NBC News of bias. However, when that politician is Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and she’s accusing NBC of bias while appearing on MSNBC, it stands out. She made the claim on Sunday’s AM Joy, laughably arguing that the friendly broadcast network was out to get her.
On Friday, NBC’s Today show could not find any time to cover an exclusive report from its own network showing major trouble for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. An NBC News survey found that over 50 Democratic congressional candidates have pledged to oppose Pelosi as Speaker of the House if they win a majority in November’s midterm elections.
