On Saturday afternoon, MSNBC anchor David Gura played a couple of edited clips of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaking to a church in 2014 and invited guest and Democratic activist Khizr Khan to complain about how the then-congressman spoke about Muslims -- even though, seconds later in a part of the speech MSNBC omitted, Pompeo was clearly referring to what he described as "absolutely a small minority within the Muslim faith" being at war with Christianity.
The liberal media was abuzz Sunday morning after massive protests erupted at major airports across the country in opposition to President Trump’s Muslim ban. To help drive the point home on Good Morning America, ABC’s David Wright asked Khzir Khan to share his wrath regarding Trump. “We sought out Khizr Khan, the gold star father who spoke at the Democratic National Convention,” Wright said while neglecting Khan’s recent history as a liberal advocate.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell was in rare form on Tuesday night while speaking to Dana Loesch of The Blaze TV in calling out Donald Trump as “stupid” for giving the liberal media an endless number of excuses to not cover the firings and Wikileaks dumps about the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s latest problems with the truth.
During Thursday's edition of MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle clashed with two Donald Trump supporters, going so far as to tell Michael Caputo “I'm not going to allow that!” when the former Trump staffer claimed that the Democratic presidential campaign is sending out talking points “so the media is covering what Hillary Clinton wants.”
Ruhle fired back that “these are Donald Trump's words, day in and day out at event after event that we're talking about. They have nothing to do with Hillary Clinton.”
Appearing on Tuesday's New Day, liberal Daily Beast contributor and recurring CNN guest Dean Obeidallah went ballistic after a fellow guest and Donald Trump supporter recalled that Khizr Khan has a history of ties to the Clintons as the immigration expert was an employee of the law firm Hogan Lovells LLP, which not only has represented the Clinton Foundation but also worked on immigration cases involving the controversial EB-5 visa program.
After former South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer recalled Khan's connections to the Clintons, the two got into a heated debate as Obeidallah incredulously accused the Trump supporter of "smearing" Khan by merely introducing his links to the Clintons into the political conversation.
Las principales cadenas de televisión en español de Estados Unidos -- Univisión y Telemundo --, prácticamente pasaron por alto los discursos en la Convención Nacional Republicana por parte de los padres de víctimas de crímenes violentos cometidos por personas que viven ilegalmente en el país, dedicando menos de un minuto al tema.
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN's Alisyn Camerota hosted a segment featuring a member of the liberal veterans group VoteVets.org -- known for supporting the election of Democrats in past elections and even labeling itself as "progressive" -- who published an open later attacking GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump over his reaction to Khizr Khan's speech at the Democratic National Convention.
Without divulging that her guest, Karen Meredith, worked for a group heavily slanted toward the liberal persuasion, Camerota gave her a sympathetic forum to complain about Trump and the reaction to him by other Republicans.
Top U.S. Spanish-language television networks Univision and Telemundo virtually buried the Republican convention speeches by the parents of victims of violent crimes committed by people who are living in the country illegally, devoting less than a minute to the subject.
It seems like the only way a military family can get media attention these days is by bashing Donald Trump. On the evening shows of August 1 and the morning shows of August 2, the broadcast morning and evening news shows spent an additional 29 minutes and 53 seconds on the speech by family of slain U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan at the Democratic National Convention, while the same shows only spent 47 seconds on Benghazi mother Pat Smith’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, host Carol Costello repeatedly attempted to get Charles Woods, father of U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Tyrone Woods, who died in Benghazi, to ask Trump to “apologize” for his comments to the Khans. Instead of taking the bait, Woods turned the tables and called on someone else to apologize instead: "When Hillary Clinton on several occasions has called the Benghazi victims' families liars, should she apologize for that?"
On Monday's CNN Newsroom, Patricia Smith hammered the media over their clear double standard between the often-negative way they treated her anti-Hillary Clinton speech at the Republican National Convention versus their hyping of Khizr Khan's anti-Donald Trump speech at the Democratic National Convention: "I was treated like dirt. I don't think the Khan family was treated that way. But I was treated like dirt. I was called a liar." Anchor Brooke Baldwin pressed Smith to condemn Trump's counter-attack on Khan and his wife.
Two weeks ago at the Republican National Convention (RNC) a grieving mother blasted Hillary Clinton for the debacle of the 2012 Benghazi attack. Last Thursday, at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), grieving parents gave a speech criticizing Donald Trump for his statements against Muslims. While all the grieving parents deserve sympathy, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening and morning shows seemed to only care about the parents that showed up at the Democratic Convention.
