With the partial government shutdown in its 12th day Wednesday, President Trump invited Democratic leaders to the White House to negotiate on the budget. As would be expected the liberal media sided with the Democrats. During coverage of the shutdown on ABC’s World News Tonight, the network suggested Trump was the one “digging in” while they portrayed Democrats as the heroes offering a “pathway” to end the shutdown.
During her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted a July poll from the left-wing Center for American Progress that unsurprisingly found that a majority of respondents thought Republicans were “more corrupt” than Democrats. Tur quoted the biased survey results from a Politico article entitled: “Corruption message gaining traction against GOP.”
In an official statement on Friday, the Department of Justice announced the indictment of former Maryland executive Mark Lambert on “11 counts related to foreign bribery, fraud and money laundering scheme.” The indictment effectively tied Lambert to the Uranium One scandal because his alleged illicit activity involved JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), an arm of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation which now owns both TENEX and Uranium One. Despite the importance of the new indictment, the major three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had been dead silent.
In a Thursday vote that was more for show than for substance, the United Nations General Assembly in a vote of 128-9 (with 34 abstentions) condemned the United States for rightfully declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And during NBC Nightly News, the network flaunted the decision by the elitist body, touted their rebuke of the U.S., and described the U.S. as somehow acting like a “bully.” All while ignoring the U.N.’s history of targeted anti-Semitism.
After preaching at the world that thoughts and prayers were useless in tragedy, Hollywood has proven that yet again they are nothing but hypocrites.
Esquire magazine revisited Election Night 2016 by talking to journalists, pundits, campaign staffers and entertainers, getting their recollections of how they remembered the night or in the case of most of the journalists dealt with the pain. It’s an entertaining and illuminating read about how most of the leftist media misread the election and how devastated they were by the results.
If empowering women means demeaning other women who disagree with you, then feminists – who claim to stand for all women – should want no part of it. But that irony was lost on women’s magazines as they applauded Michelle Obama for bashing women who “voted against Hillary Clinton.”
On Morning Joe Tuesday, the panel discussed President Donald Trump's upcoming address Tuesday evening to a joint-session of Congress. His speech is expected to cover his latest budget proposal, which includes a $54 billion increase in defense spending from which the panel deduced that the Commander-in-Chief "does not sound like a peace-time president."
Back in 2008 the “Big Three” demanded to know all they could about Republican nominee John McCain’s health, but now it’s Hillary Clinton’s health that’s in the spotlight and the networks want little to do with it. The networks are treating talk of Clinton’s health as like more than a nuisance, with CBS declaring it, “A Trump lie about her health,” and ABC saying it’s something she can “laugh off” on a late night comedy show. This was not the standard when McCain ran in 2008, far from it in fact.
On Tuesday, The Atlantic featured an article that lamented decades of Republican race-baiting in presidential campaigns. The piece by [authors] allow that race-baiting “does not mean that those who employ them are racists,” but it does “show a willingness to exploit societal ills for political gain.” The authors don’t think Republicans are racists, just that Republicans have a tendency to exploit racist attitudes across America.
Whatever Nicolle Wallace had for breakfast this morning, Jeb should down a double order . . . On today's Morning Joe, former Bush communications chief Wallace slammed a Politico story in which former McCain staffers rejected parallels between Jeb's campaign and that of McCain, who came back from the political wilderness to win the nomination in 2008.
Calling the story a "cheap shot," "low blow" and "irrelevant clackery of the clacking class," Wallace repeatedly pointed out that the sources for the story were McCain staffers now working for other candidates in the current GOP race. Such folks would obviously have a vested interest in scotching the notion of a Jeb comeback.
If calling constituents concerned about illegal immigration "crazies" is a term of endearment, what would be an insult?
On today's Morning Joe, John McCain refused to apologize to the thousands of Arizonans attending a Trump rally that McCain called "crazies." According to McCain, "crazies" is a "term of endearment" and a "term of affection."
