The nation’s main domestic Spanish-language networks have largely refused to pre-empt their evening newscasts in order to carry the daily White House press briefings on the Trump Administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. At best, viewers receive piecemeal information that is filtered through the network’s own biases. At worst, viewers are exposed to outright fake news.
Following suit from MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and unlike his CNN colleague Dana Bash from Tuesday, CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer didn’t offer anything Wednesday in interviewing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that’ll end up in a career highlight reel showing journalistic prowess. Instead, the 13-minute-plus interview was one softball after another, refusing to grill Pelosi on anything, or push back against Pelosi’s assertion that Senate Republicans don’t care about struggling Americans.
About a month ago, liberals blasted the Trump administration for "delaying" the release of a $20 bill with Harriet Tubman on it. But Alex Griswold at the Free Beacon noted that despite all the complaints from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, The Washington Post found that Obama officials said President Obama's promise of a Tubman bill by 2020 was never realistic. It wasn't just liberal legislators that left the wrong impression. It was liberal pundits on television.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy, liberal MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson spewed vitriol at several Donald Trump administration members as he called for the President's impeachment, declared that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had essentially been pushed to say "I hate black people," and that HUD Secetary Ben Carson was exposed to be a "sexist fool." He also claimed that he would burn his copies of Dr. Carson's bestselling book, Gifted Hands.
During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
The co-hosts of The View went overboard as usual in decrying a Trump administration decision to postpone the release of the new twenty-dollar bills depicting abolitionist hero, Harriet Tubman. After Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin explained the bills wouldn’t come out till 2028 to deal with counterfeiting issues, the hosts slammed it as an obvious racist “dog whistle” to Trump supporters.
The Washington Post is on a power trip again, high on the possibilities of ruining some more Republicans, like Woodward and Bernstein repealing the Nixon landslide in those golden days of Watergate. They are goading the Democrats from the hard left for contempt citations, impeachments, and even jail time.
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts argued about the combative exchange between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Rep. Maxine Waters that happened during a committee hearing Tuesday. When the Democrat committee chair wanted to keep questioning Mnuchin, despite a previously agreed upon ending time, the two had a fiery exchange that prompted View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar to gush about how amazing “Auntie Maxine” was for shutting down the Secretary.
Taking a swipe at the Democrats as the return of Our Cartoon President aired on Showtime, Stephen Colbert’s animated show has House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer come up with a new slogan for Democrats in the 2018 elections. The slogan “We're Sorry” was hatched to win back voters on the July 15 episode titled “Russia Investigation.”
The Canadian government, lining the pockets of its dairy producers, imposes high tariffs on American dairy imports. That forces Canadians to pay higher prices for dairy products. For example, Canadians pay $5.24 for a 10.5-ounce block of cheddar. In Washington, D.C., that same amount of cheddar sells for $3.64. Canadians pay $3.99 for a 1-pound container of yogurt. In Washington, D.C., you can get nearly twice as much yogurt for a little over $4. It's clear that the Canadian government's tariffs screw its citizens by forcing them to pay higher prices for dairy products.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday to combat the liberal media’s flagrant lies and falsehoods about the administration’s tax reform framework. Before having to deal with Chuck Todd’s historical revisionism on the relationship between tax cuts and economic growth, he had to deal with ABC’s Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos who insisted over and over that the tax cuts were only meant for the wealthiest Americans.
