According to the “mainstream media,” whatever President Trump does is wrong. If he wants to visit the two cities where mass shootings took place last weekend, he should not do that while the people there are in mourning. If he still goes and dares to refer to himself and his staff while praising the actions of the medical personnel treating the victims, that’s wrong as well. Not surprisingly, that was the case when Don Lemon, host of the weekday program CNN Tonight, criticized Trump on Wednesday evening by stating: “It’s not about you. It’s not about YOU. For once!”
The New York Times Thursday devoted two-thirds of its lead National section to reporter Trip Gabriel’s profile of...left-wing Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who is not even in the Democratic presidential race? Why: Well, according to the headline, “He’s Not in the Race for President, but He Sure Sounds Interested.” Now there’s some solid news judgment. "Many people besides senators continue to say they wish he were a candidate as well."
On two consecutive editions of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews offered concerns Tuesday and Wednesday night about the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido as the interim president and level sanctions against the murderous Nicolas Maduro regime, applying further pressure to the failed socialist utopia.
Mike Barnicle was conducting a humdrum conversation about the shutdown with Dem Sen. Sherrod Brown on today's Morning Joe when—out of the blue—Barnicle asked this bizarre question: "Let me ask you: do you think that Donald J. Trump presents a clear and present danger to our democracy?"
Democrats have long maintained that vote fraud is "as rare as an asteroid strike" so when Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown charged that the gubernatorial election in Georgia was stolen from Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams, Chuck Todd felt compelled to all too briefly challenge Brown on his charge on Sunday's Meet The Press.
Watch just how quickly Chuck Todd folded under just a bit of pressure from Brown:
New York Times reporter Sydney Ember traveled to Columbus, Ohio to celebrate the re-election victory of liberal Democrat (and presidential candidate?) Sen. Sherrod Brown on Page One of Friday’s edition: “Senator With Ohio Sensibility May Be Democrats’ 2020 Star.” The online headline: “Sherrod Brown: Rumpled, Unvarnished and Just Maybe a Candidate for President.” Ember has a history of folksy, sometimes embarrassing, profiles of Democrats.
Well. This has been an interesting media week, yes? The liberal “mainstream” media just exploded on Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his nomination to be a Supreme Court Justice. But there’s something very curious here. Take the case of liberal Democratic Senator from Ohio Sherrod Brown.
While covering Republican efforts to reform the tax system and the health care industry, on Monday’s CBS This Morning, correspondent Major Garrett turned to Democrats to tear down both GOP agenda items, claiming the Trump administration tax plan was “angling to benefit the wealthy” and that the President “caved to conservatives” by maintaining his opposition to ObamaCare subsidies.
In Thursday’s installment of head-scratching lines uttered by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, the Hardball host proclaimed that it’s “[c]hilling how good” Joe Biden has been as Vice President and informed guest and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka that his very appearances on television causes him to be “in a good mood when you come on this show.”
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews is no stranger to awkward and bizarre outbursts of affection for liberals (plus the occasional fellow cable host) and so Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown (Ohio) could be added to the list as he professed his admiration during Tuesday’s live coverage of the Kentucky and Oregon primaries with a full-blown testimony and even a plea for Brown to sing.
If you love the smell of liberal infighting in the morning, today's Morning Joe was must-see TV. The MSM is reluctant to report it, but you might say that a trade war has broken out among liberal Dems, and it's getting personal. A few days ago, criticizing Elizabeth Warren for opposing his TPP trade bill, President Obama said that “the truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else.” Yesterday, Sen. Sherrod Brown, also a TPP opponent, said that Obama had thereby been "direspectful" to Warren, suggesting he had been sexist.
Appearing on today's Morning Joe, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said that once Brown had a chance to look at his comments, he expected that Brown would "find a way to apologize."
It must be nice to be a leftist Washington politician representing congressional districts in or the entire state of Ohio.
You can serially fib about something for years on end, and ordinarily the folks back home won't know any better. Even when you're caught red-handed by the national press occasionally breaking down and doing its job, your area's or the Buckeye State's press will ignore it. A case in point is the Washington Post's finding on April 23 at its Fact Checker blog that Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown has for a dozen years completely fabricated statements about trade which he has attributed to President George H.W. Bush.
