Government & Press
On the Friday broadcast network evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News played the role of faithful PR representatives for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), giving legitimacy and life to a DNC lawsuit seeking to somehow avenge their 2016 election losses and lay blame on, among others, the Russian government.
Princeton University professor and MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude appeared to complain during Thursday’s Hardball that, along with new demands from Republican congressmen for documents from the Clinton e-mail investigation, the FBI Inspector General’s criminal referral concerning former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was part of an “assault” on Robert Mueller’s investigation.
For the second time in as many days, frequent CNN and MSNBC guest/former Republican Congressman David Jolly proved his usefulness to the liberal media by not criticizing the relationship between President Trump and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on conflicts of interest or policy, but by cheaply condemning Hannity for not having graduated college.
Con la campaña por la presidencia de México ya en marcha, Jorge Ramos entrevistó a la candidata independiente Margarita Zavala en el semanario político Al Punto que transmite la cadena Univisión. Varias porciones de la entrevista sugieren que Ramos sigue por el rumbo que trazó con su careo con Donald Trump en aquella conferencia de prensa ínfame de 2015.
The Huffington Post dug into internal Interior Department emails to report that Heather Swift, the press secretary for the Interior Department, “labeled a CNN reporter with a vulgar insult after being pressed to answer questions about Secretary Ryan Zinke’s travel.” Swift was emailing to one of her colleagues.
“Rene is a f--king idiot,” Heather Swift wrote to one of her colleagues, referring to CNN correspondent René Marsh. “She sounds like one,” responded deputy director of communications Russell Newell.
Despite largely salivating over the leaked copies of James Comey’s book to news outlets, there was plenty of consternation during the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, thanks to host Chris Matthews and other guests taking issue with Comey’s “cheap stuff” going after the President’s hand size, height, and skin color.
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon has been prone to meltdowns over the latest Trump controversy, so Monday’s news concerning the Mueller probe, Michael Cohen, and Syria were bound to set the liberal journalist off and he certainly did over the “historic” and “unbelievable” day that has America “on the brink.” Following two hours of gabfests on CNN’s AC360, Lemon seemed exasperated when he appeared on camera at the top of the 10:00 p.m. Eastern hour.
Tin foil hats were bountiful on Saturday morning’s AM Joy as MSNBC host Joy Reid laid out a conspiracy theory for the ages, hyperventilating over a scenario in which President Trump refuses a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is either arrested by U.S. Marshall or barricades himself in the White House.
The Washington Post gossips are unhappy that Trump’s second straight rejection of the White House Correspondents dinner is taking all the “buzz” out of the event.
As the presidential campaign in Mexico heats up, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos sat down with Margarita Zavala, former First Lady of Mexico and current independent candidate, for an interview on his network Sunday show, Al Punto. Several exchanges from the interview suggest that Ramos is going futher down the path blazed by his obnoxious 2015 press-conference heckling of Donald Trump than anyone might have imagined.
Las cadenas televisivas de habla hispana con mayor audiencia en Estados Unidos, Univisión y Telemundo, siguen pagando el precio por insistir en promover políticas de inmigración irrestricta, y el consecuente declive en su teleaudiencia ha llevado a despidos y más.
On Wednesday night’s MTP Daily, part-time host Katy Tur and her panel were largely beside themselves over President Trump’s latest “distraction” from the scandals like porn star Stormy Daniels and Russia by announcing on Twitter that White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson would replace David Shulkin as Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
