On Monday, CNN's John King provided a fact-check of Rep. Rashida Tlaib's fact-mangling comments about Palestinians and the "safe haven" they allegedly gave Jews after the Holocaust. Guess who didn't provide a fact check? The "independent fact checkers." Just as they all stayed conveniently quiet on Stacey Abrams bizarrely claiming she won the governor's race in Georgia, there were no Tlaib fact checks on PolitiFact, Snopes, FactCheck.com, or The Washington Post Fact Checker. No one would venture to explain how she's wrong, or try to claim she spoke truth.
Once again, Facebook’s liberal political tilt is showing. The platform has censored the latest blatant anti-semitic comments from Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Former Democrat New York state assemblyman Dov Hikind posted a video to Facebook of Tlaib’s interview with the Skullduggery podcast.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes was apparently playing the role of an apologist for anti-Semitic Democrats Tuesday as he danced around the facts and defended Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN). Hr declared “Republicans are now on day two of their latest sustained round of bad faith attacks against Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib,” while setting up his interview with Omar.
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg handled the latest disturbing anti-Israel outburst from a controversial Democratic freshmen representative...by rushing to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s defense in Tuesday’s edition under a headline that reduced the controversy to a partisan squabble: “A ‘Calming Feeling,’ a Furor and a New Front in the War Over Anti-Semitism.” Tlaib made a bizarre and historically fraudulent comment on Jews fleeing persecution and Palestinians supposedly giving them refuge after the Holocaust. The paper’s response fits the media pattern. When a Democrat says something offensive or controversial, the media reacts not to the actual Democratic statement, but how the Republicans reacted to it, “pouncing” or otherwise.
NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers has made it his mission to defend anti-Semitic Democrats lately and condescend to everyone offended by their rhetoric that they are just too ethnocentric to understand the good reasons why these Dems hate Israel and Jews. After playing Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s publicist last week during an interview with Meghan McCain, Meyers was back at it Monday night defending Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s shocking comments on the Holocaust.
It’s really become like day and night for some people on the left to spew anti-Semitic comments, isn’t it? Well, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) did just that in a Yahoo News podcast released Friday that’s been ignored by the major broadcast network newscasts. CNN’s Early Start covered them three times on Monday by rushing to her defense, but was undone hours later on Inside Politics.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests that Democrats should not "play it safe" and simply try to remove President Trump from office in 2020 by beating him at the polls. Instead, Scarborough argues that the Mueller report suggests that Trump "deserves" to be impeached, and that Congress has a "constitutional responsibility" to begin impeachment proceedings.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of conservative reaction to Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar dismissively referring to the 9/11 attacks as "some people did something," Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin slammed Fox News as an entity that is "endangering people of color" and "destroying political thought."
MSNBC host Hallie Jackson on Thursday went easy on Rashida Tlaib while asking about fellow Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's cringe-inducing comments about 9/11. The journalist allowed Tlaib to call for civility, despite her profanity-laced tirade in public. Jackson also skipped the Democrat’s meeting with an Israel-hating defender of Hezbollah.
On Friday, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News made sure to include amidst their extensive coverage on the completion of the Mueller Report that, despite the lack of any future indictments from the Special Counsel, House Democrats still have an increasing number of ongoing investigations into every aspect of President Trump’s life that could prove perilous for the White House.
Less than 24 hours after an extremely heated exchange with Republican Congressman Mark Meadows during former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony to the House Oversight Committee, Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib appeared on CNN’s New Day Thursday, where co-host Alisyn Camerota asked her if she regretted apologizing to Congressman Meadows for effectively smearing him as racist.
Appearing on MSNBC late Thursday morning, left-wing Princeton University professor and network contributor Eddie Glaude hailed Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib as “courageous” for smearing her Republican colleague Mark Meadows as a “racist” during Wednesday’s Michael Cohen hearing. The liberal pundit even accused Meadows of shedding “crocodile tears” in response to the nasty accusation.
