As the headline indicated, it’s about time a former Obama official was called on the carpet. Thankfully, CNN political commentator and former George W. Bush special assistant Scott Jennings did that on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, blasting former Obama National Security Council member-turned CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd over her bitterness surrounding President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
Just CNN and the major broadcast networks earlier Tuesday after President Trump’s Iran Deal speech, MSNBC’s Hardball was beside itself over the President’s decision to withdrawal the U.S. from the deal, dubbing it a victory for “chick hawks” like John Bolton drawing America into war with Iran while also “surrender[ing] the moral high ground to Iran.”
From the moment President Trump ended his remarks announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran Deal, it was DEFCON-1 at CNN with panelist after panelist losing their minds over the President’s decision. One after another, they almost universally claimed that leaving the deal has left America less safe, jeopardized progress with North Korea, handed Iran a “propaganda victory,” and destroyed “international unity.”
Once again, Univision's Jorge Ramos goes to a favorite trope of his- suggesting that Hispanics who don't follow ideological suit are race-traitors.
Kelly Jane Torrance of The Weekly Standard wrote a startling article on "Our self-obsessed parochial press corps" in the magazine's May 7 edition. The setting was an April 20 State Department briefing on its report on human-rights abuses in other countries...but the reporters wanted to focus on the horrors of America.
Well, that’s one way to show your partisan colors. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan showed why she’s a chief White House press briefing carnival barker as she used Tuesday’s installment to wonder whether the various Trump scandals lay claim to credence to the notion that he’s an illegitimate President.
Tucker Carlson and Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos resumed their ongoing argument over immigration. This time, with the Central American migrant caravan as a backdrop.
As part of the liberal media’s ongoing damage control following Saturday’s disastrous White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), Monday’s New Day saw some CNN personalities concede that some of comedienne Michelle Wolf’s jokes crossed a line, but expressed resignation and tacitly defended it as if it’s a new normal because President Trump “goes over the line all the time” and “comedy's supposed to be uncomfortable.”
In what should sadly be to the shock of no one, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC all refused on Friday morning to cover the hard-hitting but fair Fox News Channel interview of new author and former FBI Director James Comey by Special Report host Bret Baier.
Former FBI Director and new author James Comey has spent the past 12 days on his book tour promoting A Higher Loyalty, the supposed greatness of Comey himself and the lack thereof on the part of President Trump. However, no prior interview compared to his Thursday hit on the Fox News Channel’s Special Report as host Bret Baier offered a masterfully tough tour de force akin to interviews of yesteryear by the late Tim Russert.
Axios political reporter Jonathan Swan has a reputation of being an even-keeled reporter and appearing on multiple cable networks. However, Wednesday hits on the Fox News Channel’s Special Report and MSNBC’s Hardball saw Swan unload on only fellow journalists and elected officials for publicly spreading unsubstantiated allegations against VA Secretary nominee Ronny Jackson.
La entrevista más reciente del presentador de Noticias Univisión Jorge Ramos con Carmen Yulín Cruz (la alcaldesa ausente de San Juan, Puerto Rico) deja claro que si eres separatista radical y además aborreces públicamente a Donald Trump, tú también puedes recibir trato VIP en el semanario político Al Punto.
