La division de noticias de Univision se apresta a recordarnos, como vimos recientemente, que tiene una agenda política que va más allá de la inmigración.
Univision's news division is quick to remind us, as we recently saw, that it has a political agenda that extends far beyond immigration.
One of the most frightening unknowns for the liberal media is how President Donald Trump plans to rein in the rampaging Environmental Protection Agency. The Trump administration recently banned the agency from using its social media accounts until further notice. This apparently spooked CBS Tuesday, because on Evening News they glorified the efforts of environmentalists who are trying desperately to save EPA’s research data out of an irrational fear Trump will lock it up.
President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency faced legislators on Capitol Hill as his confirmation hearings began Jan. 18. At the same time, celebrities spewed vitriol about him online. Comedian and television show host Jimmy Kimmel slammed Trump’s cabinet pick, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, in a tweet saying, “Put simply, Scott Pruitt is a piece of shit. If you care about the outdoors, stop him.”
Wednesday's CBS This Morning deemed a Facebook post from Senator Bernie Sanders worthy of a 55-second short report. Norah O'Donnell noted how the left-wing politician "criticized some of the Cabinet picks" from President-Elect Donald Trump. She quoted from Sanders, who asserted that "the American people are going to have to organize and fight back against this reactionary movement toward oligarchy." Alex Wagner also cited how the Vermont senator "singled out" two of the nominations in particular, and zeroed in on how the EPA pick is "a skeptic of climate change."
Based on the logic of MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews on Tuesday night, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Oklahoma conservative Scott Pruitt will have himself to blame for “creating these nests of trouble” within the EPA and among its allies in the media even though Matthews conceded they are dead set on “mak[ing] life very unpleasant” for him.
Long-term followers of American politics will recall that about a decade ago, the left began pushing the phrases "global warming denier" and "climate change denier" into the public conversation as a way of discrediting those who are skeptical of the preferred liberal take on global warming theory. The expression was reminiscent of the term "Holocaust denier" and was meant to suggest that those who have doubts about global warming are as marginal in their thinking as Holocaust denier conspiracy theorists.
Pot: Kettle. In Friday’s Washington Post, media columnist Margaret Sullivan told those with “news fatigue” that “this is no time to tune out,” yet Sullivan soon displayed how clueless journalists are about their own leftward bias which leads so many to distrust the media and want to tune out. Presuming President-elect Trump’s personnel choices are “upsetting,” she cited how Trump “has nominated for national security adviser a general who pushes conspiracy theories, and a climate change denier to head the EPA.”
You can’t make this stuff up. On Friday morning’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo badgered Rep. Marsha Blackburn over defending Trump’s conservative pick for the head of the EPA asking her, “Can you be for clean air and water if you do not believe that man has a hand in global warming?”
With each conservative cabinet pick, the media freaks out and does their best to characterize each person as a radical extremist. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was next in line for the media to attack, as the liberal women at The View were quick to bash Trump's “horrible pick” for the Environmental Protection Agency as someone who was going to leave the United States in an apocalyptic wasteland filled with polluted air and dirty water.
New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo on Thursday continued the media freak out over Donald Trump picking a climate change doubter to run the Environmental Protection Agency. He even outrageously compared those with similar beliefs to past opposition of interracial marriage.
