Government & Press
If politicians are the most self-centered group of people in America, the news media is a close second. That pompousness was on display during the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room as a segment was dedicated to political analyst April Ryan shouting at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the national anthem protests by NFL players. Also in that segment, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon suggested that it was “fake patriotism” to simply believe in standing for the Star-Spangled Banner.
In an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) was unable to name the leader of the Democratic Party. Just two years removed after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton failed to inspire Barack Obama's coalition of supporters, the lawmaker seemed to admit that the party again had found itself at a standstill.
Reacting to Monday’s massive, 7-2 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of the Christian bakers with Masterpiece Cakeshop, CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went into full-blown panic mode, claiming that “[t]his is certainly an invitation to people who discriminate against gay people” and opens the door to Jim Crow-like discrimination against interracial and interfaith couples.
Si estamos en temporada electoral, sea en México o en Estados Unidos, puedes contar con que Jorge Ramos, presentador de noticias de la cadena Univisión, opine sobre lo que él piensa que deba o no ocurrir.
If it’s election season, whether in Mexico or in the U.S., you can count on Univision’s Jorge Ramos to weigh in with what he thinks should or shouldn’t happen.
El presentador de Noticias Univisión Jorge Ramos se volvió a unir al congresista saliente de Chicago Luis Gutiérrez para dar una clase magistral sobre la demagogia racial y el periodismo motivado por agendas particulares. En esta ocasión, lo hicieron para sacar millaje político a los comentarios del presidente Trump sobre los integrantes de la Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a quienes lildó de animales.
Showing how delusional CNN and MSNBC are with wall-to-wall coverage of Roseanne Barr’s deranged, racist tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett, it took until at least the ninth question in Wednesday’s White House Press Briefing for the now-fired ABC star to come up.
Condemning Roseanne Barr’s ugly, racist tweet from Tuesday morning about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett should be relatively simple. However, the panel on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House took things further. In the show’s B-Block, the panel linked the fired ABC star’s comments to Sarah Palin on the 2008 campaign trail, “borderline evil” people in the White House “hurting this country,” how “white people have lost their damn minds,” and Trump supporters are “moral monsters that are running around this country.”
El presentador de Noticiero Univisión Edición Nocturna y heredero aparente de Jorge Ramos, Enrique Acevedo, compareció recientemente ante el programa Tucker Carlson Tonight de la cadena Fox News para denunciar las expresiones del presidente Donald Trump, en la que calificó a la nefasta Mara Salvatrucha de “animales”.
For those keeping score at home, this is the third post on Thursday’s Hardball, so that should tell you plenty about the straight jacket-worthy craziness that unfolded on MSNBC from start to finish. It began at the top with ringleader/host Chris Matthews setting a grim picture of the country’s future down to NBCNews.com’s Heidi Przybyla seeming to question the intelligence of those in flyover country for not understanding the ramifications of the Russia probe.
For some time, it’s been evident that much of the liberal media have come down with cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Wednesday’s CNN Tonight showcased how host Don Lemon has been grappling with it. Suffice to say, it’s not going well as he informed viewers that “[o]ur country is in the middle of an extreme crisis, a crisis that threatens our foundation, a crises that threatens the values we all hold — hold dear, a crisis created to blind us to the truth” caused by Trump.
Wednesday saw the latest edition of CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo throwing down with Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan as the topics du jour featured calls for a second special counsel, Russian collusion, and a Thursday meeting of congressional Republicans having access to some of the most sensitive documents related to the Trump-Russia probe.
