Joe Scarborough's white-hot hatred of Donald Trump apparently extends to members of the President's administration. On Morning Joe, Scarborough launched a nasty, personal attack on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Scarborough's stream of insults about Pompeo included the following: "absolute fool; disgraceful; beneath contempt; should be ashamed of himself; bumbling, stupid act; unworthy to hold any public office for the rest of his life."
WASHINGTON -- Over the weekend in the Wall Street Journal, Brian Lamb, the founder of C-Span, tendered a Solomonic statement in his valedictory interview after some 40 years before the television cameras. Said Lamb, “Lying is the word that I would use to describe this town.” And he went on, “I don't know if it will ever stop. It's gotten worse rather then getting better, and both sides do it.
NewsBusters has documented how MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews has become a 9/11 truther of sorts when it comes to hold out hope for evidence proving Trump-Russia collusion. The nonsense continued into Thursday’s show in which Matthews wondered if Trump “did...or didn’t he play ball with Vladimir Putin.” Assisted by the chyron “Mueller Report; If Not Collusion, Quid Pro Quo,” Matthews gushed over the supposed brilliance of Hollywood-area Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) also insisting that there’s still “evidence of collusion” despite the Mueller report’s conclusion.
High atop the list of old habits in media that will never die: kneejerk apologia for the failed utopia known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Russian President and former KGB spook Vladimir Putin isn't alone in pining for its glories. During a weekly roundup of the NPR Politics podcast on Feb. 14, Domenico Montanaro, the state-funded radio network's "lead political editor," chided Republicans for having the audacity to use Democrats' swooning for socialism against them.
According to fired FBI Deputy Director Andy McCabe, intelligence officials were briefing President Trump on the state of North Korea's ballistic missile program when Trump said he did not believe North Korea possessed the capability to launch missile attacks on the United States because Russian President Vladimir Putin told him that Pyongyang did not possess such missiles.
During Tuesday’s Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo closed by peddling conspiracy theories related to President Trump and Russia, acting as if it were an indisputable fact that President Trump colluded with Russia. Cuomo began by asking: “If you did nothing wrong, then why aren't you telling me the truth?” Cuomo described that question as “what we tell our kids…so they know to just come clean. You know the drill. Well, the President apparently does not.”
The Wednesday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe kicked off with a conspiritorial and unsophisticated look at President Trump's policies towards Russia. After the intel chiefs condradicted Trump on multiple fronts on Tuesday in front of a Senate committee, Morning Joe was not content to criticize Trump, but said on multiple occassions that such a disconnect between the President and the IC was evidence that Vladimir Putin has something on Trump.
The Razzie Awards, given out annually for the “worst in cinema” of the year, may not be the first place you think of when you think of political bias. But the 2019 edition of the Golden Raspberry (“Razzies”) Awards took an obnoxious anti-Trump angle that extended to the First Lady. One nominee for Worst Actor: Donald Trump, for his appearances in two documentaries, right-winger Dinesh D’Souza’s Death of a Nation, and left-winger Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9. Two of the nominees for Worst Supporting Actress were former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and First Lady Melania Trump (both for clips in Fahrenheit 11/9).
In similar fashion to their fellow lefties at CNN, MSNBC Live was beside itself on Thursday afternoon after President Trump’s letter canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas visits to Afghanistan, Brussels, and Egypt. Host Katy Tur and assembled panelists blasted the “childish” “man baby” of a President for actions further illustrating the need for his removal via impeachment or the 25th Amendment.
On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
On a day when pipe bombs were sent by an unknown party to Democratic politicians and mainstream media outlets, with the press presuming Trump and his supporters guilty of the crimes by association, thriller author Zoe Sharp proudly tweeted a Trump assassination fantasy short story that’s been published in a special section of the New York Times.
On Monday, Tulane history Professor Walter Isaacson took to the airwaves of MSNBC's Morning Joe to condemn President Trump. The swipe began by Isaacson making the bold declaration that Donald Trump was "a weaponized virus" and that he's been "weaponized over the years by Vladimir Putin to go in and do Putin's bidding."
