As NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham recalled Wednesday morning, December 19 marked 20 years since President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives. The date largely went unnoticed by the liberal media but it was noted by Fox News Channel’s Special Report. Immediately following that notation, anchor Bret Baier called out the media for wishing “to see President Trump go down the impeachment road.”
Longtime presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was a guest on the Monday edition of CBS's The Late Show, and liberal host Stephen Colbert peppered her with questions about former occupants of the White House, especially her favorites: Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson (whom she worked for in the White House). Of course, most of the discussion focused on using history to slam Donald Trump, with the host going so far as to ask his guest which of “her guys” she’d want to "take on" the current Republican president.
On Friday, the Trump administration issue a congressionally mandated report about climate change that claimed it looked 100 years into the future and was designed to scare people. The liberal media were apoplectic that the administration dismissed the findings as they tried to spread the panic. New York Times reporter Helene Cooper, during her Sunday appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, was particularly adamant that everyone in America needed to be running around in hysterics over the report.
Towards the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd led the largely liberal panel on a sorrowful whine session to bemoan how no hastily-crafted-poorly-understood-and-ultimately-useless gun control measures had been enacted nationally yet.
Catching up on some unadulterated Obama hero-worship from the New York Times: Reporter Michael Shear penned his latest fawn-a-thon for the front page of the Sunday July 3 edition, showing our belovedly quirky president still tirelessly working as the day and his presidency winds down: “Obama at Night: 7 Almonds and Some Precious Solitude."
Liberal historian and former Johnson administration staffer Doris Kearns Goodwin was on Sunday’s Meet the Press panel and to the shock of no one, sang the praises of Hillary Clinton by proclaiming how she projected an “amazing...internal confidence” in the debate and has become “a better candidate now than she was six months ago” and from 2008.
Speaking as part of a panel about presidential books during Sunday’s Face the Nation, author Doris Kearns Goodwin couldn’t help but devote a few moments of her time to heaping praise on the “ambitious” man who she first worked for in politics in then-President Lyndon B. Johnson from the 1960's.
On election night, the PBS program Charlie Rose had an all-liberal panel to whine about the Democratic Party’s electoral losses throughout the country and complained that President Obama didn’t tout his agenda throughout the campaign season. During the discussion, Bloomberg View’s Al Hunt argued that "this is the most content free election I`ve ever seen. The Republicans basically ran totally against Barack Obama… the Republicans have been nothing but negative."
On Tuesday's The Lead, liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin dismissed the notion that the media is in President Obama's "pocket."
"I don't think the country would feel that his way of dealing with the country has been eased by the press," she lamented of Obama and the media. "I think the press is much more complicated today. I think ever since Watergate there's a more antagonistic view between presidents and press."
