At the end of the 3 pm hour on MSNBC, Ali Velshi brought on Michael Kirk, the executive producer of the long-running (left-spinning) PBS documentary series Frontline. Velshi highlighted a video clip focusing on Sarah Palin as an avatar of division in the Obama years...and never mentioned that in 2013, MSNBC afternoon host Martin Bashir resigned in disgrace after insisting she should literally be force-fed human feces. So who again was divisive in the Obama years?
Even though it’s been more than a decade since Katie Couric hosted a news program on ABC, CBS or NBC, “America’s Sweetheart” is still popular with many journalists who continue to shower her with praise and awards. That behavior continued on Saturday evening, when Couric received a 2019 Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Journalism during a ceremony where the liberal anchor stated: “I’ve been doing it for so long that I think people know I’m fair-minded and trustworthy."
If there’s one thing you can say with certainty about Sacha Baron Cohen, it’s that the liberal comedian and actor is consistent in his hatred for all things Republican. Even when he was nominated on Tuesday for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Variety Series, the driving force behind the defunct Who Is America? Showtime series just couldn’t resist taking shots at former Vice President Dick Cheney and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Tina Fey doesn't think Saturday Night Live can influence people because they're just so darn "fair" and they have their finger on the pulse of how the nation is "already feeling."
Ever since HLN debuted as CNN2 on January 1, 1982, the cable television channel has been on a roller coaster ride that led to the announcement on Tuesday that the network is immediately cutting back on its live programming in favor of virtually all taped shows. The transition was already apparent on the same day, when Morning Express with Robin Meade was followed by a rerun of How It Really Happened with Hill Harper instead of a live edition of Across America with Carol Costello.
Former NBC and CBS star Katie Couric sat for an interview with Brian Stelter on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, and celebrated the tenth anniversary of her Sarah Palin interview. This reminded conservatives that there are Republicans, and then there are the “even Republicans,” as in the phrase “even Republicans think Katie Couric was exceedingly fair to Palin.”
Amid glowing tributes to the life and career of Arizona Senator John McCain on Monday, MSNBC took time to use the Republican lawmaker’s passing to trash his 2008 vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin, labeling McCain’s selection of the then-Alaska governor as his “biggest political mistake.”
Remember folks, Vox gonna Vox. Moments after Arizona Republican Senator John McCain’s death on Saturday night, Vox.com sent out a since-deleted tweet that “[y]ou can draw a straight line from John McCain to Donald Trump — through Sarah Palin” that accompanied a piece by politics editor Laura McGann which, in the original version, couldn’t correctly identify the origin of Palin’s “lipstick” comment.
The New York Times lead editorial Monday was dedicated to Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, who passed away on Saturday: “A Scarred but Happy Warrior.” But the liberal editorial page just couldn’t stay classy for the entire 12 paragraph tribute, lapsing into accusations that McCain’s obituary Robert McFadden mostly managed to avoid: "He had principles, and he had flaws, from time to time betraying those principles -- most grievously in the 2008 presidential campaign....he then allowed his own campaign, and himself, to descend to the same debased level, portraying Mr. Obama as a shadowy, untrustworthy and even unpatriotic figure."
In the past couple of days since the passing of former Republican Senator John McCain, several personalities on both CNN and MSNBC have lamented his selection of Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee in 2008 as a "mistake," with some suggestions that he helped set up the Republican party to go down the wrong track by doing so.
ABC analyst Larry Hackett appeared on Good Morning America, Thursday, to hedge about whether or not it was right for liberal comedian Sacha Baron Cohen to dupe Sarah Palin by portraying a disabled vet in order to con her into an interview. Talking to 10Ten Media managing partner Larry Hackett, co-host Robin Roberts wondered: “Is that not crossing the line?”
CBS This Morning co-hosts often promote the newest programs on Showtime, a division of CBS. Yet, the journalists on Wednesday ignored a disgusting new Showtime series featuring a comedian who dressed up as a disabled veteran in order to dupe Sarah Palin into an interview.
