Appearing on MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin late Tuesday morning, left-wing Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart accused anyone voting for Republicans in the midterm elections of being “okay” with “racism.” Asked later if some Democrats running in red states were “perhaps a little left of the center,” he dismissed such concerns and insisted they were just living their “truth.”
With roughly 24 hours until polls closed for the midterm elections, the liberal broadcast networks were out in force Monday evening as they pleaded with viewers to vote for Democratic candidates. From touting Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill as a moderate to blasting Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp for accusing Democrats of hacking to fantasizing about all the investigations of President Trump the Democrats would start, the liberal networks were all hands on deck.
In the closing days before the midterm elections the liberal media went mad in their attacks on the GOP and especially President Donald Trump as they blamed his “racist” and violent rhetoric for the crazed actions of both the mail bomber and synagogue shooter. On CNN, a correspondent for GQ raged: “This President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” The following are the worst attacks on Trump and the GOP from their midterm election coverage.
Just one day before the midterm elections, ABC’s morning show went all out in touting Democrat candidates for office, from the gubernatorial race in Georgia to the Senate race in Texas. Anchor George Stephanopoulos even touted charges of racism and voter suppression by Republicans in the Georgia race, while inviting the Democrat candidate, Stacey Abrams, on the show to bash her opponent in an aggressively partisan interview.
On his State of the Union show on CNN, Jake Tapper presses Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia state legislature that would have forced owners to surrender their so-called "assault weapons."
During Saturday morning's AM Joy show, as MSNBC's Katy Tur on location at a Brian Kemp campaign event in Georgia spoke with a Republican guest, Tur still seemed unaware that claims of "voter suppression" against state Republicans have been debunked as she asked why so many voters on the pending registration list are minorities.
During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel devoted almost an entire segment to praising the “powerful” and “persuasive” Oprah Winfrey. Wallace went on to talk about “the Oprah effect happening right in front of us as the TV superstar knocked on doors stumping for Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for Governor there.” Wallace urged her audience to “listen to what Oprah told the crowd at a campaign event this afternoon and judge for yourself the potential impact this rare, coveted endorsement will have.”
Jeffrey Cimino at the Washington Free Beacon caught two MSNBC primetime stars going so gaga over Oprah Winfrey it's amazing the camera lenses in their studios didn't fog over. After Oprah campaigned in Georgia on Thursday for black female ultraliberal Democrat Stacey Abrams, the superlatives bubbled over in the transition from Rachel Maddow to Lawrence O'Donnell. Maddow actually said the words "Oprah is our hope-rah."
As the midterm elections approach, TV news hosts have abdicated their role as reporters to become partisan cheerleaders, inundating the airwaves with portrayals of Democratic candidates as lovable celebrities. The same media who relentlessly hammered Republicans with 88-percent negative midterm coverage have stubbornly refused to cover Democratic scandals, while praising their favorite candidates as “rock stars.”
Between Wednesday and Thursday, several MSNBC anchors have continued to push discredited claims of "voter suppression" by Georgia Republicans, with host Ali Velshi giving credence to the claims on both days. On Wednesday afternoon shortly before 4:00 p.m. Eastern, during a segment with Adrianne Shropshire of BlackPAC as his guest, Velshi posed:
It’s always funny when a member of the liberal media pretends that they’re not in lock step with the Democratic Party. During the later portion of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, incendiary CNN host Don Lemon proclaimed that he didn’t belong to any political party and was an “Independent” just like Democratic Party campaign star Oprah Winfrey.
Legendary TV personality Oprah Winfrey stumped for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia on Thursday and the liberal media couldn’t get enough of it. During their evening news programs, the major broadcast networks celebrated her efforts as they gushed about her going door-to-door and surprising voters.
