If a recent episode of Real America is any indication, then the purpose of the partnership between Facebook and Univision appears to be little more than to allow host Jorge Ramos to indulge the fringiest left-wing policies under the guise of journalism
Telemundo continues its aggressive push for gun control, this time by putting out a story that suggests the National Rifle Association is under duress because of calls for increased gun control as a result of horrific shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
Despite having long made his opposition to President Trump known, former talk show host Montel Williams was trumpeted as if were for the first time in both USA Today and on the Wednesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball. In both cases, he further bolstered the liberal media’s decades-long crusade to assert that the Republican Party has lost its way. But in addition to the usual tiresome takes MSNBC already receives, Williams went off to host Chris Matthews about how offended he was that the Trump campaign is selling Fredo Cuomo t-shirts.
With the horrific shooting in El Paso,Texas as his backdrop, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos renews an all-too-familiar call for action on gun control.
Closing out Friday’s NBC Nightly News, special correspondent Harry Smith surfaced to provide another emotion-laden, fear-fueling, and far-left commentary about the El Paso and Dayton shootings as evidence that “[t]he arms race has been lost” with common sense, decency, and safety losing out to those villainous “gun rights defends” and “the gun lobby.”
There’s no single issue that the liberal media are less informed and more vicious about than the Second Amendment. And while mass shootings or the general topic of guns will bring about takes that are all emotion and not facts. But there are also plenty like one offered on Wednesday’s Hardball by MSNBC political analyst David Frum that was so stupid it was funny.
Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell made his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network on Tuesday, sounding off on The New York Times kowtowing to their “clearly out of control” far-left base by changing a headline and CNN’s upcoming show trial on gun control. And for good measure, Bozell schooled a liberal panelist on Bulls and Bears after they insinuated the President was responsible for the El Paso terror attack.
Along with panelists on Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom ripping President Trump’s speech and displaying a visceral hatred for non-liberals, these CNN personalities bolstered their takes on this weekend’s mass shootings by showcasing a nearly 14-minute-long beatdown of political commentator David Urban, who was the lone conservative panelist.
CNN analyst Brian Karem, the "senior [read: only] White House reporter" for the porn magazine Playboy, announced on Twitter Friday that the White House suspended his "hard pass" effective Monday for 30 days. The letter from press secretary Stephanie Grisham cited his behavior at Trump's social media summit on July 11, where he verbally attacked Trump's conservative guests: "This is a group of people that are eager for demonic possession."
Considering how much bashing MSNBC has done of the CNN Democratic presidential debates and the moderators (Dana Bash, Don Lemon, and Jake Tapper), it was no surprise when the late-night portion of their coverage (12:30 a.m.-2:00 a.m. Eastern Thursday) repeatedly bashed CNN for having and insufficiently covered issues like education and impeachment and created too much conflict.
After having hosted the first set of 2020 Democratic presidential debates, MSNBC was relegated to only post-debate analysis and some panelists used this format to, without using names, bash CNN moderators Dana Bash, Don Lemon, and Jake Tapper for their debate setup being a “WWE”-style slugfest that should be “throw[n] in the river” for the betterment of candidates and voters. Lyin’ Brian Williams and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson took the first stabs (which you can read about here), but MSNBC political analyst and MoveOn.org spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre followed suit.
For Estrella TV’s evening newscast, the horrific shooting in Gilroy, CA is little more than a segue into a fact-free smear of the National Rifle Association. Check out the full post as anchor Adriana Yáñez coldly transitions from the lead story on the horrific shooting at Gilroy, California, the aforementioned NRA hit piece.
