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:
On CNN's "State of the Union," host Jake Tapper three times presses losing Dem Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as to whether she acknowledges that her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, will be the "legitimate" governor. Abrams refuses to do so, conceding only that Kemp "received an adequate number of votes" and hence would be the "legal" governor.
The New York Times is accepting, even supportive, of liberal Democrats who protest the disappointing results of free and fair elections. Democratic Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams' classless attempts to poison the well after her close defeat at the hands of Republican Brian Kemp were greeted with consolation on the front page of the New York Times. The paper also supported attempts by liberals to overturn Donald Trump’s victory in 2016. But after Trump hypothetically raised the possibility pre-election of not respecting the results, there were accusations of dictatorship.
Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning to defend Democrat Stacey Abrams’ refusal to concede the race for governor in Georgia and hurl accusations of voter suppression against Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo touted support from disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather and MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough.
The front of Tuesday’s New York Times featured reporters Jeremy Peters and Maggie Haberman in the Florida capital Tallahassee, the heart of the latest controversial voting issues related to recounts to hit that state, for a “news analysis” that cast the Republican Party as ruthless and cynical and the Democrats as meek: “G.O.P. Fears Over Senate Edge Drive Push to Discredit Recount.” The reporters downplayed past and present examples of Democratic electoral shenanigans and managed to mention long-controversial Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes just once.
MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day heap praise on Republican Martha McSally for quickly and "gracefully" conceding to Dem Kyrsten Sinema in their Senate race in Arizona. In contrast, the two shows castigated Republican Rick Scott for fighting it out in Florida. Neither network calls on Dems Gillum, Nelson or Abrams to emulate McSally's example.
Just 12 days after CBS correspondent Oprah Winfrey “stepped away” to campaign for Democrat Stacey Abrams in Georgia, Winfrey is back on the network and you’ll never guess what she’s doing: Praising a Democrat. Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King, introduced Oprah on Monday, to reveal the next book club selection: Michelle Obama’s new autobiography.
On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid was again pushing discredited accusations that Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams was undermined by "voter suppression" by Georgia Secretary of State and GOP gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp as she also wrongly claimed that Abrams had been "well ahead" in the polls before Election Day when Kemp, in fact, had usually been slightly ahead.
Liberal journalists routinely make the mistake of pretending only black people are insulted by Trump, when the rainbow of Trump's insults is very diverse. We showed that when he called Omarosa a "dog." She was one of many. On Friday's edition of The Situation Room, CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin took off in his critique of Trump's "constant attacks on black people" after the president insulted a series of black female reporters this week. Except....CNN's Dana Bash recalled it happening to her.
CNN contributor and American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan appeared on Thursday’s The View, to join the hosts in complaining about President Trump’s treatment of the press, after Wednesday’s combative press conference. Co-host Joy Behar took the opportunity to bash Trump as a racist because he told Ryan to sit down during that presser, after she repeatedly tried to interrupt another reporter. The next day, the hosts continued the race-baiting.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and one of her guests on Friday jumped into conspiracy theory territory while discussing the post-election gubernatorial fight in Georgia. At one point, she lectured Republican Brian Kemp, who appears to have emerged victorious, “Please win fair and square, Brian Kemp.”
It happens all too often these days in Tinseltown. A studio spends a gazillion dollars on the CGI-est spandex simulations and atomic death ray explosions in the latest installment of Mission Impossible 9: Batman Punches The Death Star, only to see it’s surefire summer blockbuster bring in B Movie-level receipts.
