After the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News refused on Wednesday to mention that the U.S. Attorney’s Southern District of New York office was closing its investigation regarding the now-infamous hush money payments, Thursday’s CBS Evening News noticed this legal victory for President Trump, but offered a tinge of disappointment there were no new charges. And similar to how the liberal media tried to make hay with the Mueller Report despite the lack of collusion, CBS tried to do that on a smaller scale with the documents released on the probe.
It was another bad day on Wednesday for The Resistance as it was revealed that the Southern District of New York had ended their probe concerning the Trump Organization and alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. And on cue, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to acknowledge this while ABC's World News Tonight only gave it a 16-second news brief.
Wednesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom reported in two segments between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern that former Stormy Daniels attorney and liberal media boy toy Michael Avenatti was indicted in separate cases pertaining to his alleged extortion of Nike and alleged financial defrauding of Daniels. Of course, CNN only footnoted the fact they had made their bed with Avenatti, hosting him an incredible 121 times between March 2017 and April 11, 2019 (which was the publication date of a study by the MRC’s Bill D’Agostino).
Doing the comedy that NBC’s Saturday Night Live largely retired from doing at least a decade ago, Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld offered a tour de force to open his Saturday eponymous show in the form of a monologue against the liberal media “jackasses” “crushed” by the Mueller report’s conclusion that there was no Trump-Russia collusion.
After ex-Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested by the FBI for extortion and fraud, the hosts of the View reacted to it on Tuesday’s show. Co-host Joy Behar, who had previously lauded the celebrity lawyer for “saving the country,” admitted she was heartbroken over Avenatti’s fall from grace.
Season three of CBS All-Access's The Good Fight is off and running with the issue of sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement. In the episode that aired March 14 titled “The One About the Recent Troubles," President Trump’s alleged scandals involving women other than his wife are brought into the mix.
The Washington Post gossips -- "The Reliable Source" -- pretended they weren't doing a rerun in Thursday's paper, promoting a Stormy Daniels chat in Georgetown plugging her book Full Disclosure -- which came out five months ago. The whole item was a tired repeat of a puff job they did about a book event in DC in December.
It’s certainly no surprise that CNN's Jim Acosta would go to virtually any length to criticize President Trump and anyone in his administration. The most recent example of this behavior comes in an excerpt from a new book written by former Trump administration official Cliff Sims, who wrote that Acosta and his channel “peddled slime” with “unsubstantiated misinformation from a disgruntled ex-Trump campaign aide.”
On Wednesday’s Hardball, two separate MSNBC panelists suggested that not only did then-candidate Donald Trump’s hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal “[rob] the American people of their right to vote,” but that he was not a “democratically elected” President because of them and possible collusion with the Russians.
In another legal victory for President Trump Tuesday, a California judge ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay almost $300,000 to President Trump to cover his legal fees because of her “meritless defamation lawsuit”. And just as they did when her case was originally thrown out, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) downplayed Trump’s victory during their newscasts. NBC ignored it all together.
On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
The New York Times managed an impressive feat, covering -- online only -- the latest controversy involving anti-Trump porn lawyer Michael Avenatti – without making a single mention of Brett Kavanaugh, whose Supreme Court nomination Avenatti tried to bring down by pushing forward the absolutely bizarre accusations of Julie Swetnick. Perhaps that's because the paper's reporters have basically promised a hit-piece book on the new Justice and want to preserve the integrity of its anti-Kavanaugh crusade?
