Condemning Roseanne Barr’s ugly, racist tweet from Tuesday morning about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett should be relatively simple. However, the panel on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House took things further. In the show’s B-Block, the panel linked the fired ABC star’s comments to Sarah Palin on the 2008 campaign trail, “borderline evil” people in the White House “hurting this country,” how “white people have lost their damn minds,” and Trump supporters are “moral monsters that are running around this country.”
Touting a preview of HBO’s new documentary on the life of Arizona Senator John McCain, who is battling terminal brain cancer, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show used the segment as an excuse to slam Republicans over their “rush last summer to replace ObamaCare” and alluded to the former GOP presidential nominee’s “mistake” of selecting Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008.
The front of Sunday’s New York Times featured political reporter Jonathan Martin’s tribute to the ailing Sen. John McCain: “At Home, McCain Shares Memories and Regrets.” It has some charming moments, but comes off hypocritical, given the paper’s back and forth feelings for McCain, praising him when he was a threat to more conservative Republicans during the 2008 party primaries, condemning him when he threatened the saintly Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election campaign. It also used the veteran moderate Republican as a convenient, pointed rebuttal to President Trump.
One could say that it was late on a Friday afternoon, but then again, this is MSNBC’s Deadline: White House and liberal Republicans offering fear-mongering prognostications are nothing new. On the March 16 edition, host Nicolle Wallace led a band of MSNBC Republicans as each offered assessments ranging from bragging about smearing Sarah Palin to arguing the President’s tariffs will cause a depression to ironically complaining about having to discuss porn.
Of all the television shows for the husband of Sarah Palin to make an appearance on, Todd Palin strangely chose TBS’s extremely liberal comedy The Detour. Produced by leftist commentator Samantha Bee and husband Jason Jones, the show was originally based on the real-life family road trips of Bee, Jones and their children, but has now devolved into vile material that Palin should have thought twice about associating himself with.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace again demonstrated that she is still obsessed with Sarah Palin's part in the 2008 presidential campaign as she found a way to work an anti-Palin jab into a discussion of Republican Jeff Flake publicly condemning President Donald Trump.
No wonder Nicolle Wallace is Rachel Maddow’s favorite Republican. The Deadline: White House host on Tuesday actually compared her experience working for Sarah Palin to the growing scandal engulfing Harvey Weinstein, a man now accused of exposing himself and of rape.
Perhaps no one illustrates how "Screw up, move up" works in the establishment press as it often works in government bureaucracies more than The Daily Beast's Sam Stein. With all of his alleged knowledge, an Ivy League undergraduate and masters education, and over a decade of experience, how is it even remotely possible that he believed (until he was humiliated into withdrawing his related tweet) that some of those who have benefited from the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) could legally vote?
Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times was thrown out on Tuesday, not because the Times didn’t recklessly accuse Palin of inciting the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords. It’s because by the standards of standing libel law, one has to find “malice,” which is much harder to prove than the false statement of the Times.
On Thursday, a federal court judge in New York made what Eriq Gardner at the Hollywood Reporter called an "unusual move" in Sarah Palin's libel lawsuit against the New York Times. It is indeed extraordinarily unusual, and would appear not to bode well for the Times — which likely explains why the paper's colleagues in the establishment press are, for the most part, either not reporting it at all or inadequately reporting it.
Former Bush administration official, former failed McCain campaign aide, and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace was featured in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine in which she promoted her liberal tilt compared to other Republicans and complained that “there’s no other news” besides President Trump.
On Friday, a lawyer for the New York Times, arguing before a Manhattan federal judge, claimed that the paper made "an honest mistake in posting the editorial" claiming that Sarah Palin directly incited the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in 2011.
