NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers devoted one of his "A Closer Look" sermons to touting "Medicare For All" and mocking President Trump and Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson for opposing socialism. Meyers warned "Scare mongering about socialism might have worked a few years ago, but it's lost its punch now that Republicans have used it over, and over, and over again."
Apparently MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson has forgotten the concept of federalism. At least that’s the way in appeared on Thursday, when she suggested that the United States Senate should somehow intervene in a dispute between Republicans and Democrats over changes to the state government in Wisconsin.
Sadly, since coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have received numerous death threats. During that time, Kavanaugh and his family have also received horrific treatment. Despite the seriousness all around, ABC’s World News Tonight sided with Ford on Thursday by choosing to only report the threats to her and threw those against Kavanaugh in the trash.
We noted PolitiFact gave ultraliberal Sen. Kamala Harris a "Mostly True" on July 25 when her facts on apartment rentals weren't factual. By contrast, on July 20, PolitiFact declared it "Mostly False" when a Republican challenger tweeted that ultraliberal Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin "opposed displaying the flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or singing the National Anthem in our classrooms." Did she vote that way? Yes. But she later made other more patriotic votes in Congress.
Did she? Yes, that's true.
Ryan Saavedra at the Daily Wire captured an instructional moment on CNN on Wednesday afternoon. Anchor Brooke Baldwin was interviewing Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis., no relation) on the separation of illegal-immigrant families at the border. The Senator from Wisconsin was on a tear, that the Trump zero-tolerance policy was "something that I think violated all American values. It was an un-American activity." Then the CNN host asked her if she felt that way four years ago under Obama. The senator just tap-danced around the question.
The latest confirmation that Erick Erickson's original warning at RedState that "you will be made to care" about the legalization of same-sex "marriage" even if you think it doesn't affect you comes from Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin.
On Saturday, the day after the Supreme Court's related ruling, Baldwin was on MSNBC’s “Up w/ Steve Kornacki” program. Baldwin was asked, "Should the bakery have to bake the cake for the gay couple getting married? Where do you come down on that?" The short version of her answer: "Damn right they should."
NPR practiced its typical Inevitable Gay Progress bias on Tuesday’s Morning Edition. By a vote of 61-30, the Senate voted to proceed on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would allow LGBT activists to file lawsuits if they felt they were fired or weren’t hired or promoted on the grounds of “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.”
Congressional correspondent David Welna piled up five soundbites in favor of the “common sense” gay agenda (including two liberal Republicans), and “balanced” that by relaying one perfunctory sentence from Speaker John Boehner. Not one social conservative could be found in all of Washington, and there was no mention of religious freedom being crushed:
Liberals love to harp on what they perceive as Republican failure. What they truly loathe is Republican success.
A fine example of this predictable dynamic can be seen in MSNBC's febrile coverage of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and his efforts to turn around the Badger State's disastrous finances. (video after page break).
