Even if the sexual assault allegations by former Joe Biden staff member Tara Reade turn out to be false there are still problems the former vice president faces. The first and most important of these is whether he can win his party's nomination. I'm generally suspicious when it comes to politics. Why has Reade waited until now to come forward? Biden has run for president before and several times for senator. He was vetted before Barack Obama picked him as his running mate. The timing seems too convenient.
When do the liberal media's unctuous interviews of Democrats stop being journalism and start constituting campaign contributions-in-kind? The question arises again today in the context of Morning Joe's fawning interview of Joe Biden.
In a friendly sit-down with former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Monday, Today show co-host Craig Melvin gushed that the 38-year-old former Sound Bend mayor “could run for president ten more times.” The NBC anchor went on to promote Buttigieg preparing to play late-night host, set to fill in for Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday.
It may be hard to remember, but once upon a time the media was infatuated with former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, but even Buttigieg's own party grew tired of his empty platitudes and inexperience and as a result he withdrew from the presidential race. On Monday's Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace and correspondent Vaughn Hillyard reminisced about Buttigieg's purported charisma and his one-way feud with Vice President Mike Pence.
Pay attention, Disney. MSNBC has ideas for Marvel. With the news that Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar have dropped out, correspondent Mike Memoli could barely contain his excitement on Monday. Talking to Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace, he gushed over the coming endorsement of Joe Biden. Reporter Mike Memoli enthused, “ It's almost like they’re building an Avengers sequel in Dallas tonight.”
Being one of the liberal media’s more beloved candidates in the 2020 race, it made sense that CNN Newsroom was in awe of former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s speech announcing that he would quitting the race, calling it “awesome,” “presidential timber,” “well done,” and Obama-like in “oratory” with “that even-Stephen baritone” voice.
Adding another arrow to her quiver of crazy, radical feminist commentator and occasional New York Times columnist Jill Filipovic took to social media to disparage most of the remaining Democratic presidential field. No, not because they embody some of the worst values in human history, but because each of their skin tones is white and they each have male genitalia.
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday waved goodbye to Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 campaign with one last disingenuous claim that the liberal Democrat is a “moderate.” This weekend, all three networks cheered mysterious “moderate” alternatives to Bernie Sanders. Apparently, all you have to do to be a centrist is simply not take a vacation to the Soviet Union.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
MSNBC was a better mood following Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, expressing hope going forward because former Vice President Joe Biden “looked presidential,” “had his best night,” “had his act together,” and came across as “substantive.” Further, the panel seemed giddy at the fact that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finally faced more than an occasional jab and some boo’s, making for what they deemed not exactly his strongest performance.
The liberal Spanish-media giant Univision has been sold. Media executive Wade Davis is heading up a private group to buy a majority stake in the company and will be its new CEO.
The First Amendment covers freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But what if someone’s religion does not allow homosexuality? Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” When the founder of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, posted on Facebook that he had a moral objection to Democratic candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his post was removed.
