Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reported former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw gave an interview to NBC's NFL sideline reporter Michele Tafoya for the magazine Artful Living and complained "I think the most extraordinarily powerful tool and the most destructive development in modern life is the current media." What? He suddenly hates the media? Listen closer. He doesn't like social media, and how there's no fact-checking.
Addressing the British Parliament in 1982, President Ronald Reagan outlined a plan for placing the Soviet Union and Marxism-Leninism on the “ash heap of history.” It is an objective President Trump might pursue against the mullahs in Iran, who are subsidizing terrorism in the Middle East and threatening to export it elsewhere. The latest military and verbal volleys between the United States and Iran started when a branch of the Hezbollah terrorist group (called “militants” by some reporters), attacked the American Embassy in Baghdad.
As the decade comes to a close, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the last 10 years. Today’s installment showcases some of the decade’s most rancid quotes attacking Republicans or conservatives.
“Blowout” was how one UK newspaper described the decisive victory of Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party in last week's election. How decisive was it? Not only did conservatives win an 80-seat majority in Parliament, a constituency in Blythe Valley in Northeast England elected a conservative member for the first time since its creation 40 years ago. Pundits leading up to the election were wrong, as usual. They predicted a very tight race.
Wednesday brought the distrubing and sad news that wildfires were threatening the Ronald Reagan presidential library in Southern California. Well, it was sad news to normal people. But that didn’t stop a few prominent liberals from either gloating or blaming conservative inaction on global warming. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist and occasional CNN guest Will Bunch used the dangerous fire as an opportunity to hype his anti-Reagan book and to tout this as a what-goes-around-comes around type situation
More than 30 years after President Ronald Reagan left office, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude on Sunday was still blaming him for modern economic problems during a discussion of the Democratic presidential race. On Up with David Gura, as Glaude gushed over Elizabeth Warren's performance in the last debate, he even claimed that Democrats have been "complicit" along with Republicans in implementing Reaganesque economic policy.
Mixed-ish premiered on ABC Tuesday and it is about the childhood of Rainbow "Bow" Johnson, the mother in the hit television show Black-ish played by Tracee Ellis Ross. In what has become typical from ABC, the show features themes such as communistic sympathy, anti-conservative and anti-capitalism bias.
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin insisted on MSNBC that we must "burn down the Republican Party" since they are "not fit for polite society." Where have I heard this kind of pompous moralizing from media and Republican elites bemoaning a prominent Republican before? Oh, right. Now I remember. Here’s a sample of what the elites of the Republican Party and the media had to say about….Ronald Reagan.
It was another par for the course night of nonsense on Hardball Tuesday, featuring MSNBC host Chris Matthews waxing-poetic about past presidents providing leadership in challenging times compared to Donald Trump. His panelists then suggested his rhetoric led to the death of Latinos in El Paso that he truly doesn’t care about.
The folks over at MSNBC have created a "heads I win, tails you lose" approach to President Trump and Republican policy towards Russia. The same network that has come up with "Moscow Mitch" for Republicans being allegedly too soft on Russia now claims Trump is giving Vladimir Putin "a gift" by withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, because Russia refuses to come back into compliance.
Always out to make the Republicans look bad, on Thursday night’s All In, MSNBC host Chris Hayes decided to smear the entirety of the Republican Party since the Reagan era as racists. Hayes began by introducing a recently uncovered 1971 phone call recorded between then-President Richard Nixon and then-California Governor Ronald Reagan, in which Reagan, in a moment of human imperfection made some less-than-decent statements about African people.
