CNN host Jake Tapper concluded Sunday’s State of the Union with a self-righteous rant he thought was going to make President Trump look like he was doing nothing to combat the coronavirus. Instead, Tapper came off as foolish since many of the supposedly tough questions that had no good answers actually did have answers, ones that CNN would like to be kept hidden from their liberal viewer base.
Not long after they had insisted President Trump treated the coronavirus press briefings as though they were “a reality TV show,” ABC and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos invited former Vice President Joe Biden onto This Week to buoy his oxygen-less campaign. One of the softballs the Clinton lackey tossed to Biden encouraged him to blame Trump for the deaths caused by the coronavirus. While the crisis was only part of their discussion, Stephanopoulos steered clear of the recent sexual assault allegations against his guest. Something he was used to doing from his time in the Clinton White House.
ABC’s chief White House correspondent and White House Correspondents Association president, Jon Karl was the latest liberal journalist to decide they wanted to make a fat stack of cash by publishing a new anti-Trump book (Front Row at the Trump Show). As such, his Sunday appearance on Good Morning America was just another chance to hawk his product. He insisted President Trump was making a mockery of the coronavirus crisis and was using the daily press briefings as “a reality TV show.”
MSNBC allowed Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace to host their coverage of Saturday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, predictably, she twice interrupted to rip President Trump with like-minded guests Kimberly Atkins and Steve Schmidt. In Schmidt’s case, he blabbered that Trump was “completely over his head,” “incoherent,” “mentally….unraveling,” and “rambling.”
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, host Joy Reid and fellow MSNBC host Ali Velshi pushed for a British-style national health care system during the coronavirus pandemic even though there are reports that the country's National Health Service (NHS) has fared poorly during the current crisis. In fact, if one crunches the numbers, the overall per capita death rate from COVID-19 has been substantially higher so far in the United Kingdom than in the U.S.
MSNBC host Ali Velshi once again used the current pandemic to urge the U.S. to adopt single payer health care on Saturday. Unfortunately, for Velshi and his guests, their critiques of the current system and their praises of single payer turned out to be less than accurate. His co-worker in socialism education was Mehdi Hasan of the far-left Intercept website.
We live in chaotic times. The coronavirus is wreaking havoc on our country and our economy. The 2020 election is, justifiably, a secondary concern for many Americans. But journalists are still assisting the Democrats, ignoring sex abuse allegations against Joe Biden. And it won’t be long before they start making dire predictions about GOP doom. In that spirit, let’s take a look at this week’s FLASHBACK. Almost exactly four years ago, veteran CBS journalist Bob Schieffer predicted an epic loss for the Republicans in that year's presidential contest.
With the grave coronavirus pandemic worsening this week, the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefings have been far more sobering and less combative than past episodes. Sunday and Monday featured fireworks, but it wasn’t until Friday’s that tensions resurfaced as President Trump squared off in two exchanges with CNN’s Jim Acosta and CBS’s Weijia Jiang.
On Wednesday's Full Frontal show on TBS, liberal comedienne and provocateur Samantha Bee not only fretted over women not being able to getting abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, but she obnoxiously likened going to an abortion clinic to attending a concert, and complained that being blocked from going "forces you to have a f**king baby."
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle kept up her network’s effort to actually blame competitor Fox News for the spread of coronavirus across the country. She and her guests repeatedly suggested that Fox was providing “misinformation” that would “put people’s lives in danger.”
Author and journalist Katherine Stewart joined MSNBC Live host Ayman Mohyeldin on Friday to reprise an argument she made last week in the New York Times that the real bad guys of the coronavirus pandemic currently that is impacting the entire world are members of "the religious right."
Given how quickly and how aggressively journalists have moved to politicize the coronavirus and to blame Donald Trump, it was a bit of a shock on Friday to see Morning Joe co-host Willie Geist quiz Mayor Bll de Blasio (albeit gently) on his early incompetent handling of the virus crisis. Geist demanded, “Knowing what you know now, do you wish you'd closed the schools a little bit earlier? Do you wish you'd closed the restaurants and bars a little bit earlier, just to stop the spread and maybe save some lives?”
