A $1.25 trillion giveaway program to college grads and future college students deserves scrutiny, not praise as a “bold,” “sweeping” or “ambitious” plan that could “distinguish” Sen. Elizabeth Warren from her Democratic competitors.
Some news stories, including CBS and NBC online, bordered on being a sales pitch for the plan to forgive student loans and make public colleges tuition-free. CBS boosted Warren’s claims that forgiving student loan debts for millions of Americans “could supercharge the economy,” (even though liberal economists have contradicted that claim in the past). It even asked “What’s not to like?” and only cited one Twitter’s complaint it would be unfair to people who didn’t go to college.
Economist Ben Stein provided a harsh reality check of socialism, as youth, politicians and the media turn ever leftward. His criticism of socialism and the Green New Deal sharply contrasted with recent liberal media reactions.
As Ben Stein appeared as a guest on Sunday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera was visibly surprised that the right-leaning actor and economist slammed Hasan Minhaj's anti-Donald Trump jokes as "sickening" as the two discussed the liberal comedian's appearance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Stein also called out the media as a "joke" and a "sharp instrument of the left" that are constantly "attacking" President Trump.
CNN political analyst David Gergen's recent hyperbolic claim that Donald Trump may have had the worst first 100 days of any President in history was so over the top that even his CNN colleagues are still laughing at him the day after. On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, after right-leaning actor and former Gergen subordinate Ben Stein jabbed his former boss by recalling how bad Abraham Lincoln's first 100 days were, CNN political analyst Ron Brownstein joined in by noting that William Henry Harrison died in his first month, inspiring laughter from Stein and CNN host Ana Cabrera. Gergen notably made an appearance on CNN Newsroom a couple of hours later and doubled down, claiming Trump's first 100 days may have been worse than Lincoln's.
Economist and former speechwriter for Richard Nixon, Ben Stein, appeared on CNN Newsroom last Saturday, where he slammed the media for making Trump a “punching bag” and “looking for a scandal” from the president on a daily basis. Stein told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “I don't blame him for being furious at [the media].” Stein noted, “I think he's got a lot of company."
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, supposedly right-leaning actor, economist and former Nixon speech writer Ben Stein praised socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's plan for national health care, and even admitted to a "fondness" for former law school classmate Hillary Clinton as he mused about whom he might support for President. It was only after being prodded that he finally admitted he prefers Republican Marco Rubio of all the candidates, although he aimed blunt criticism at both Rubio and Ted Cruz even while admitting to liking them both.
Actor Ben Stein absolutely nailed the hypocrisy of Bill and Hillary Clinton standing up for women’s rights while at the same time their foundation had accepted donations from oppressive countries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
On Sunday, actor and political commentator Ben Stein appeared on Fox News and made some highly controversial remarks about President Obama, accusing him of being “the most racist president there has ever been in America.” Following Stein’s offensive comments, on Tuesday, all four co-hosts on The View rightly criticized the actor, and unsurprisingly Rosie O'Donnell took her condemnation to a whole new level. Rosie proclaimed that “it was on Fox News which I think just likes to incite a lot of hate and is not always factually correct."
Former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein took a shot at new CNN film "Our Nixon" on Wednesday, calling it "extremely one-sided." The film will air on CNN Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET. This comes as CNN plans to roll out a film about Hillary Clinton, the maker of which is "excited" to tell of her "fascinating life and work."
Stein acknowledged that the Nixon film "is a great documentary. But it's extremely one-sided." He added that "the first hour is absolutely fabulous. Mesmerizing, as you said, unbelievably interesting. The second hour is very one-sided. Because it talks about how he got brought down by Watergate. But it doesn't talk about how he sat up a generation of peace."
Now THAT’S what I’m talking about.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Saturday cut the mic of the incredibly "offensive" and "obnoxious" liberal shill Julian Epstein for refusing to have a serious discussion about the current White House scandals and instead insisting on echoing Democrat talking points (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
CNN claims to be the moderate voice of cable news, but it certainly doesn't play the part when it shills for President Obama's tax plan. Obama has called for the Buffett Rule, or higher taxes on millionaires, and CNN helped him make his case in a one-sided segment Wednesday afternoon.
Anchor Brooke Baldwin begged for her viewers' attention before she aired Obama's liberal spin on taxes from his State of the Union address. She then highlighted millionaire Mitt Romney's low tax rate, "adding fuel to the fire that the incredibly affluent, the rich folks, pay taxes at a lower rate than the average person," she hyped.
Supposedly right-leaning actor, economist and former Nixon speech writer Ben Stein of late has become famous for advocating for higher taxes on the wealthy, but on Wednesday's The O'Reilly Factor on FNC, Stein was finally seen arguing from a conservative point of view again as he debated David Callahan of the left-wing group DEMOS, and argued that taxation rates on the wealthy are not to blame for the economic problems of the middle class.
