On Thursday, while reporting on the latest developments in the Russia investigation, neither ABC’s Good Morning America nor CBS This Morning made any mention of a new poll showing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s favorability with the American people dropping to lowest level since the probe began over a year ago. NBC’s Today show did manage to note the survey, but only for a mere 17 seconds.
Freeform’s dramedy The Bold Type is (unfortunately) back for another season, and it’s disappointingly more of the same extremely liberal, sex-obsessed, storylines.
In a story about an oppressive near-future theocratic American society where women are treated like cattle to birth babies, everything is political. This week Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale even managed to weave a contemporary #MeToo narrative into the dystopian story based on the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood.
A day after MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews called out President Trump for “coming out like a kiss butt” in dealing with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, the liberal pundit reveled on Wednesday in comparing Republicans to North Korean soldiers and comments by Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker that GOPers are part of a “cult” for enthusiastically backing President.
On Wednesday, CBS News was the only broadcast network of the big three (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to inform their viewers of an ambush on the U.S.-Mexico border that left a Border Patrol agent in critical condition. By their evening broadcast, CBS reported that the agent was upgraded to stable condition but their broadcast competitors ignored the shooting altogether. They instead chose to hype the social media phenomenon of a raccoon that scaled a building in Minnesota.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight during a segment in which liberals outnumbered conservatives 3-1, CNN political commentator Angela Rye trashed pro-Trump evangelicals who support cracking down on illegal immigration, calling them "heartless human beings" who are "sick." And for his part, host Don Lemon accidentally declared that illegals are facing increased "federal persecution" before catching himself and correcting it to "prosecution" -- although it was quite possibly a Freudian slip of his personal opinions on the subject.
Tuesday, while appearing on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, left-wing political commentator and weekend host Van Jones lept to the defense of Bill Clinton, as the former President embarrassed himself yet again. In an interview with PBS while on his current book tour, Clinton said this:
CBS This Morning on Wednesday did what most media outlets won’t do: The show took a serious look at efforts to arm teachers and other staff as a way to stop school shootings. Reporter Adrianna Diaz explained how Florida’s School safety guardian program will work: “Armed with real guns and real bullets, these everyday people like a minister, former teacher, and retired police officer are training to take down a potential school shooter.”
Feminism was necessary when women didn’t have the same rights as men. But now that they do, feminists have to find something to complain about. Rather than admit they are already equal, they found a new way to find men sexist. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nigerian author of A Feminist Manifesto and 15 Suggestions, appeared on The Daily Show on Thursday to talk about how men can be a champion for feminism.
From almost the very beginning, President Trump played down expectations for the North Korea summit, even suggesting it may not even happen. But now that the President was walking away with a signed commitment, which he acknowledged might fall through, liberal news outlets were questioning why they even had the summit at all. On Tuesday’s edition on CNN Tonight, author Max Boot argued Trump shouldn’t really get any credit because he was putting out the fire he started.
If you weren’t sure whether a certain phrase in the headline was a word, it’s a no but MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried on Tuesday night to make it one. Describing President Trump’s attempts at currying favor with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Matthews told one of his panels that Trump didn’t come off like someone skilled in “political communiques,” but instead “like a kiss butt” and “it’s outrageous the way he talks.”
While broadcast networks ABC and CBS were skeptical about how the U.S.-North Korea agreement would turn out (a legitimate concern considering North Korea’s history of reneging on such deals), NBC Nightly News took a noticeably harsher tone and railed against President Trump. This decrying of Trump’s agreement comes after NBC has gone to bat time and time again for the radical Islamic regime of Iran and against our President.
