In what was a poorly mangled attempt to be the liberal and unfunny Seth Meyers, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper went on a rant Wednesday in which he pretended to throw fits at his staff for not showing clips and tweets of anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), but instead ones that painted the Trump administration and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as not only hypocrites but anti-Semites.
Univision’s weekly political affairs show Al Punto recently featured a familiar guest, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Pérez, as well as the rollout of some familiar tropes - just in time for the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Continuing their theme of bashing President Trump on Tuesday night, NBC News reacted to his State of the Union address with scorn by slamming it as incoherent “additive” when not talking about immigration but showing strong affection for Stacey Abrams’s Democratic response that the network deemed “strong” because it “scolded the President.”
In one of the more blatant cases of bias by omission in memory, the nation’s leading Spanish-language newscasts blacked out any mention of President Trump’s recent roundtable with a group of Hispanic pastors from all over the country.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews brought on liberal Bill Nye the Science Guy during Tuesday’s show to lambast the President for tweeting about the liberal rush to promote climate change despite what’s been thought of as a once-in-a-lifetime polar vortex bringing record cold to large swaths of the country. But the craziest part of the three teases plus seven-minute interview was a question from Matthews about whether the influx of illegal immigrations from Central America has to do with climate change making that part of the world less desirable.
El Diario, New York’s leading Spanish-language newspaper, published an opinion piece written by an America’s Voice staffer which can best be characterized as pro open-borders propaganda.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to triple down on in his ongoing war of words against proposed border security initiatives. His latest column picks up where his New York Times piece left off.
Deep breaths, Chris. On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host/pundit Chris Matthews asserted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s entire job (aka “mandate”) is to, instead of letting the chips fall where they may, “unearth any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia” because that’s “what he was set to find.”
Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos doesn’t even bother to contain his biases anymore, as shown on a recent segment of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto. Watch as Ramos asks an immigration advocate whether a wall would work, and then agrees sotto voce with the advocate’s answer:
The New York Times recently saw fit to print an op-ed by Univision’s senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, titled “Trump Is the Wall”. In doing so, the Times not only enables Ramos’ endless anti-Trump jihad, but provides an ample platform from which to further disseminate a series of assumptions and half-truths that further solidify Ramos’ status as the most biased national news anchor, regardless of network.
Reacting to President Trump’s Friday afternoon decision to cave and reopen the government without border wall money, CNN Newsroom nonetheless eviscerated the President as if he had announced the government would be staying closed. Instead, anchors and correspondents condemned Trump as “shameful” for having “single handedly shut down the government” that caused “agony” and illustrated a White House not in touch “with reality.”
So after the liberal media berated the Trump administration and blamed them for the shutdown, one of media’s chief instigators suggested that a deal to reopen the government is a distraction from the pre-dawn indictment and arrest of Roger Stone? Well, it turns out that’s the logic spinning inside the mind of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who knocked rumors of a deal during Friday’s CNN Right Now as “a bright, shiny object....after the stunning news, the indictment of Roger Stone.”
