The American press fell head over heels for the lefty Canadian PM when he first hit the scene in 2016. He got the pop star treatment with network anchors catching “Justin Fever” as they swooned over the “super hunky” “dreamy” and “adorable” politician they dubbed “Canada’s Obama.” The following is just a few of examples of the liberal media’s infatuation with Trudeau, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
Liberal reporters and hosts have been paving the way for Joe Biden, as they have excused his non-stop gaffes as “endearing” and even “Reagan-esque.” At the same time, they were shocked by the “horror show coming out of Trump’s mouth” as MSNBCers like Chris Matthews and Donny Deutsch compared the President to tyrants like Idi Amin and blamed him for the El Paso shooting. The following is a round-up of the most obnoxious outbursts from liberal journalists and celebrities over the past month.
The moderators for ABC’s Thursday night Democratic debate include a former Bill Clinton campaign staffer and an anchor who was actually kicked out of a Donald Trump campaign event. So it’s safe to say ABC’s Democratic debate hosts won’t be asking any tough questions of the candidates – at least none from the right. The following are just a few examples of Thursday night’s debate moderators’ history of liberalism as culled from the MRC’s archives.
MSNBC’s anchors from Joe Scarborough to Donny Deutsch are constantly comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.
It got really ugly this past week as anchors, reporters, hosts and celebrities blamed Donald Trump’s “racist” rhetoric for the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. The following are just a few of the ugliest attacks on President Trump, Republicans, conservatives and gun owners from journalists and celebrities in the wake of the mass shootings.
CNN has dozens of anchors and political journalists, yet the network chose the Democrat-adoring, Trump-despising, black hole conspiracy theorist Don Lemon to join the more reasonable Jake Tapper and Dana Bash as moderators of this week’s two-night Democratic presidential debates. The following is a very brief look (via the MRC’s archives) at Lemon’s most incendiary and obnoxious outbursts during his tenure at CNN.
Somebody should pitch Hollywood producers on a new type of celebrity game show called “Who Can Sink Lower?” Because every month there is an intense competition amongst entertainers to see who can descend further into the depths when it comes to heinous descriptions of Donald Trump and his supporters.
Norah O’Donnell has risen through the ranks of TV jobs from MSNBC correspondent to CBS This Morning co-host. From her days defending the “centrist” Barack Obama to trashing Donald Trump as “dangerous to democracy,” the following is just a sample of the incoming CBS Evening News anchor’s career of adoring Democrats and liberals and attacking Republicans and conservatives.
From hoping the first Democratic candidate debates would produce a savior from the “cruel” “dictator” Donald Trump to condemning his “Guantanamo Bay” for children and then raining on the President’s Fourth of July parade, the following are the most obnoxious moments of media bias over the last month.
It could get nasty tonight and tomorrow when NBC’s moderators bring up the topic of Donald Trump during the Democratic candidates debate. If recent history is a guide expect the moderators to ask questions that push the candidates to criticize Trump and his administration’s policies while treating some candidates – like Bernie Sanders – as heroes. The following are just a few examples of NBC’s debate moderators most liberal moments since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, as culled from the MRC’s archives:
CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 353-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. And, folks, it’s everything you thought it would be and then some. CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 354-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People. And, folks, it’s everything you thought it would be and then some.
Donald Trump may be the most hated president in Hollywood since...well...ever. In the last month celebrities from Bill Maher to Cher have wished the worst, most vile things on the current president. The following is just a sampling of the worst outbursts (this past month) from Hollywood:
