Tensions were high on Thursday’s Deadline: White House as host Nicolle Wallace and her outraged panel fumed over Rudy Giuliani’s recent remarks about porn star Stormy Daniels. As the MSNBC host's frustration boiled over, she speculated whether the women in the Trump family were, “numb,” “dead inside,” or “paid off.”
Eager to defend the virtue of porn star Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani questioning her character and credibility, on her Thursday 9:00 a.m. ET hour show, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly actually compared First Lady Melania Trump to the adult film actress. The host claimed that the president’s wife “sold her body for sexual exploitation” when she once posed nude for GQ magazine 18 years ago.
Thursday morning on MSNBC, it was just another day at the liberal network, as host Stephanie Ruhle and her anti-Trump guests spent an entire segment repeatedly calling the President a “pig” and gossipping about his alleged preference for pornography.
Figures for the May ratings period show that CNN's primetime audience shrank by 25 percent from May 2017. So it seems that obsessing over Stormy Daniels, having over 147 interviews with her lawyer, constantly going after President Donald Trump as an idiot and a racist, highlighting Jim Acosta's loutish behavior, giving an open mic to gun-controllers, and siding with Hamas terrorists attacking Israeli soldiers — only a few items from a much longer list — is not a winning formula. Imagine that.
On Sunday’s installment of Showtime’s The Circus, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was profiled and he lashed out at President Trump as a “racist” and insinuated that Trump’s criticism of him was racially-based. Thankfully, the show also profiled our friends at the Daily Caller and, to the show’s credit, the interviews allowed for Daily Caller personality to offer some excellent points about liberal media bias.
First, frequent cable and broadcast news guest/Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti threatened on Monday to sue the Daily Caller for defamation. Now, on Wedenesday, a Hollywood Reporter column revealed how Avenatti called the writer an “asshole” for e-mailing him a list of tough questions and demanded their editor reach out to him.
In the past ten weeks, lawyer Michael Avenatti, who is representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against President Trump, has been interviewed a staggering 147 times on broadcast and cable news shows. More than half of those interviews (74) were on CNN, which almost certainly makes Avenatti the most ubiquitous guest in the network’s history. No guest — not Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders in 2016, nor Adam Schiff in 2017 — received anything close to the outpouring of free media coverage that CNN has bequeathed to Avenatti.
Recently, a couple media outlets have published stories pondering a mysterious thought: Are people getting tired of our 9-to-5 Trump bashing, and would they rather us tell jokes that aren’t just cheap shots at conservatives? Vice writer Harry Cheadle wondered the same thing when he published an article titled, “‘SNL’ Cold Opens Are Unfunny, Elitist Pieces of Liberal Propaganda.”
ABC's The View replaced Meghan McCain on Monday with CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter, who worked on Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in the last cycle. But Carpenter lined right up with Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg in defending Stormy Daniels for doing a comedy skit with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. She even proclaimed Daniels is taking on Trump better than the Democrats. "I hand it to her, and I hand it to Michael Avenatti! "
On Friday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel engaged some predictable hyperbole and exaggeration with regards to the latest developments in the Stormy Daniels saga, namely that President Trump did in fact reimburse his personal attorney Michael Cohen for $130,000 he paid the porn star in the weeks leading up to the election, despite his past denials
Way back in the Dark Ages of the Twentieth Century, if one wanted to read news about the pornography industry, he had to get a copy of Al Goldstein's Screw magazine. However, since we now live in a much more enlightened era, one merely has to check the New York Times to find the same type of information. Such a story happened on May 5 when the New York Times published ‘Who Gets to Be Sexy?’ It is a detailed look at the current state of the porn business but since it is appearing in a liberal publication, the view is from a feminist perspective.
Former prosecutor and NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, the newest member of President Trump’s legal team as he battles special counsel Robert Mueller on several fronts, caused a stir with some blunt talk involving payouts to porn actress Stormy Daniels. The New York Times, a long-time enemy of Giuliani, ran two stories in the lead slot Friday under the headline: “On Attack for Trump, Giuliani May Aggravate Legal and Political Peril.” But it was reporter Katie Rogers who brought the paper’s trademark mean-spirited touch, in “Giuliani’s Bark May Come Back to Bite Trump.” The text box: “A bombastic former mayor undermines his client, the president.”
