On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera was joined by CNN's Brian Stelter to bemoan the fact that President Donald Trump reacted to criticism from conservatives by holding firm on border wall funding and rejecting a plan to delay a shutdown of the government. Stelter complained the conservative media's "entertainment wing, that's the Sean Hannitys of the world....have an enormous amount of influence."
Seeing as how he had been the bane of the liberal media’s existence for the last 24 hours plus as he’s supposedly the real president, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh was in an ebullient mood for his Friday show. He said that he was supposedly “the new villain in Washington D.C.” ahead of a possible government shutdown that was portrayed as if the world was “end[ing] even before climate change kills us all.”
Ignoring the fact that conservative talk radio listeners and Fox News viewers make up most of the Republican base, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and guests of both parties lashed out at both and particularly “unelected” conservative icon Rush Limbaugh for being “the man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz” running the country instead of — spoiler alert — them.
Newsweek breaking news reporter Benjamin Fearnow covered Wednesday's comments by Rush Limbaugh (see photo) on the criminal justice reform bill that easily passed Congress. Limbaugh claimed the bill steals one of the major issues, prison reform for nonviolent criminals, that Colin Kaepernick and other athletes have been have been demanding through their anthem protests.
Hell may have no fury like a woman scorned, but scorning the Washington Establishment produces even greater anger. The Establishment's full fury has been unleashed against Donald Trump and is not about to subside until its goal is reached: the removal of the president from office, either through impeachment or defeat in the 2020 election. If there were more than the kitchen sink to throw at Trump, the Establishment would be throwing it. The latest is the hyping of private money paid to two women by Trump's disgraced lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Nationally syndicated talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance on Tuesday’s edition of Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream. Bream asked Limbaugh to weigh in on the media’s coverage of President George H.W. Bush in the wake of his death last week. Not surprisingly, Limbaugh did not hold back when it came to calling out the media’s politically expedient, “phony” embrace of the late former President..
According to the rage-fueled tirade of MSNBC faux Republican strategist Steve Schmidt during Monday’s edition of All In, presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, the President, “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they have made that have triggered and radicalized these crazy people.”
CNN media analyst Brian Stelter returned from vacation practically glowing over a new anti-conservative jeremiad by NBC's Chuck Todd in The Atlantic, a magazine that endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016. "Chuck Todd is urging all of us to recognize what anti-media manipulators are doing – and respond accordingly."
In the competition of ideas, you can't win the game if you're not on the playing field. That's why Silicon Valley bigwigs' stubborn refusal to put business above their own personal partisan biases doesn't just rankle. It reeks. Equal access to social media is not just about sharing food pics, pet videos, makeup tutorials and travelogues. It's about ensuring the ability to disseminate and distribute political speech on the world's biggest platforms.
There is a determined disinformation campaign by the establishment press contending — in the face of admitted evidence to the contrary — that Barack Obama's FBI didn't spy on Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, appeared Thursday on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show to debunk that nonsense.
Note well these three items from the week’s news. 1. The Guardian and the Los Angeles Times investigate the private real estate holdings of Fox and talk radio host Sean Hannity. 2. New York magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi was writing a piece on ex-Trump White House aide Hope Hicks
Yet again today, Rush Limbaugh demonstrated why he has remained the dominant figure on the radio airwaves for more than three decades -- few other observers dissect liberals and their endless pathologies with such precision and consistency. Why is it, Limbaugh was asked during a recent outing with friends, that liberals appear intent on savaging Senator Marco Rubio, who emerged after the Parkland school massacre as the most high-profile Republican willing to compromise with Democrats on firearms.
