This morning, the news and cable networks were abuzz with talk of “Watergate” and impeachment, salivating over the idea that Michael Cohen’s plea deal would lead to Trump’s ousting. Over and over again, the media compared the betrayal of the President’s former personal lawyer to Nixon’s scandal, calling Trump an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a scandal that was as big as Watergate.
Closing out his CNN show on Tuesday on a bad day for President Trump, Chris Cuomo asserted in his “Closing Argument” that Tuesday was “a bad day” for America because the President’s supporters still boisterously cheered him at a rally and thus didn’t boo him in light of the Cohen and Manafort cases. Cuomo also appeared to hilariously assert that either the media or country writ large don’t “want to see the President do poorly.”
On Tuesday evening and following a whirlwind of a news day, Omarosa dropped a massive nothingburger while appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball. Host Chris Matthews peppered her with questions, in an attempt to have her get to the bottom of whether or not Trump is guilty in the eyes of the liberal media. Spoiler alert: he is.
Appearing on MSNBC’s The Beat early Tuesday night, frequent MSNBC guest and Fordham University professor Christina Greer smeared the memory of late University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts as “a girl in Iowa” that “Fox News is talking about” instead of going all-in on the plea deal for Michael Cohen and the verdict in the Paul Manafort trial.
On Monday’s edition of Hardball with Chris Matthew, former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne joined a discussion on the legal cases surrounding President Trump. Among the cases discussed were those concerning former Trump Campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Alksne had specific advice for Cohen, saying that “he can give the prosecutor something on Trump’s kids.”
During his decades-long career, Jim Carrey has gone from being a popular comedian and movie star to a rabid liberal who thinks "half the country" is "cheering the locomotive that will kill them. He has diverted his creative energy into the political arena to bash his favorite target: President Donald Trump, as well as other people in the Republican Party.
On Monday afternoon, CNN went into full-blown panic mode directing anger and bitterness at the Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti and Reuters’s Roberta Rampton following President Trump’s press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in which neither U.S. reporter asked the President the questions CNN wanted them to.
If you were watching one of the Friday morning cable or broadcast networks, chances were you didn’t hear about news late Thursday into Friday that the North Koreans handed over what purported to be remains of U.S. soldiers who went Missing In Action (MIA) during the Korean War. A NewsBusters analysis found that 16 times more coverage was dedicated to former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s unverified allegation that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
On Friday’s edition of New Day, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman spent most of the three-hour program discussing former Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen and his willingness to turn on President Trump. During the third hour of the program, the two hosts invited president of the Eurasia group, Ian Bremmer to add his take to the nauseating amount of coverage of this topic.
Friday at the Hot Topics table, The View panel talked about the only topic the media cares about this week, the ambiguous leaked tape from Trump’s ex-personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and the new claims this morning that Trump had full knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with a Russian operative in June of 2016. The table eagerly speculated that this was the smoking gun to prove Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. Reading the tweets denying these claims, the View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin scoffed, saying it was audacious that Trump could still call Hillary Clinton “crooked,” even saying it was a “lie” to do so.
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson crashed and burned Wednesday while attempting to plug an NBC News report during the final moments of her morning show. In a spectacular display of poor judgment, the MSNBC Live host attempted to rhyme and used a made-up work that sounds like an anti-Semitic slur to refer to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen calling him “Kikle.” Mr. Cohen is Jewish.
The New York Times indulged in some self-owning irony on Sunday’s front page under the byline of Jim Rutenberg and Ben Protess. The subject was American Media Inc., the tabloid company that publishes the National Enquirer: "Federal authorities examining the work President Trump’s former lawyer did to squelch embarrassing stories before the 2016 election have come to believe that an important ally in that effort, the tabloid company American Media Inc., at times acted more as a political supporter than as a news organization, according to people briefed on the investigation." The high irony of that sentence evidently escaped The Times.
