On Friday, CBS Mornings hosted Biden campaign surrogate Democratic Congressman Ro Khanna of California. However, Khanna at least acknowledging President Biden’s gaffes and pleas for Democrats to stick with Joe fell on deaf ears at the table.

CBS co-host Tony Dokoupil began however by mentioning the press conference that Biden held on Thursday:

“Congressman Jim Hines came out…

During a segment that was mostly about the various security failures that facilitated the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump, former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey made a point insufficiently expressed on the media: that if there is any rhetorical cooling to happen, it must also happen among “media personalities.”

Watch as Ramsey closes out his…

The Washington Post shamelessly jumped right into the “no evidence” game on Sunday when Republicans complained that all of the Left’s routinely extreme demonization of Donald Trump could inspire violence. Michael Scherer’s headline jumped right in:

Trump allies immediately blame Biden, Democrats for their rhetoric

Supporters argued that Democratic portrayals of Trump as a…

CBS’s coverage of the aftermath of the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump has been awful throughout, but Chief White Correspondent Nancy Cordes may have just plumbed a new low.

Today, there was a brief pause in the media’s ongoing lecture about “tone” and “rhetoric”. Watch as CBS’s Nancy Cordes channeled the Biden campaign’s relief at the shift in campaign focus-…

The attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday evening reminded some news watchers of what President Joe Biden said to Democratic donors six days ago, as reported by the New York Times: “During a video call with top donors on Monday, Mr. Biden told them: “It’s time to put Trump in the bull’s-eye.”

One may scoff at the idea…

On CNN this morning, host Kasie Hunt described the attempted assassination of Donald Trump in blunt, truthful terms as:

"A massive failure by the Secret Service."

Moments later, when panelist Elliott Williams, in the context of a discussion of unverified information on social media, made mention of people floating the notion of an "inside job," Hunt shut him down, saying:

"…

In the immediate aftermath of an attempted assassination of the former President of the United States and certain 2024 Republican nominee, some in the press are abandoning calls to “lower the temperature” of the post-shooting rhetoric, and have begun to blame Trump for getting himself shot.

Watch ABC’s Martha Raddatz as she does precisely that on ABC This Week:

ABC THIS…

The Trump campaign has announced that the 2024 Republican National Convention will begin as scheduled tomorrow, after the former President was injured in an attempted assassination. Saturday's shooting will doubtless cast a shadow on the convention, but decades of past coverage suggests that the media coverage will nonetheless showcase journalists’ time-tested criticism of the GOP as an…

Breaking-news live coverage can get things wrong in the heat of the moment, but there's no excuse for partisanship to break out. After the assassination of former president Donald Trump on Saturday, I was looking out for talk of the January 6 riot. It happened at about 9:16 on CBS, as anchor Margaret Brennan was talking to Samantha Vinograd, a former Obama official at the Department of…

Curtis Houck | July 14th, 2024 1:56 AM

On Saturday following the attempted assassination of former President Trump in Butler, Pennsylvania, CBS was out of control in demanding Republicans be the ones to lower the proverbial temperature and alter their rhetoric to soothe our collective body politic. Of course, as our Alex Christy wrote about earlier, they even expressed concern about the well-being of…themselves.

The worst…

Giving credit where credit is due, NBC (and simulcast on MSNBC) wasn’t anywhere near the dumpster fire on Saturday night that CBS was in covering the assassination attempt against former President Trump that left at least one Trump rally attendee dead and others injured. That said, there were still a few humdingers, such as pathetic use of the GOP drinking game/bingo word “seizing” and more…

Unfortunately, the liberal media seemed unable to reflect on how things got to the point where former President Trump was nearly assassinated. In the hours following the attempt on Trump’s life on Saturday, CNN Republican commentator Scott Jennings condemned the anti-Trump, doomsaying election rhetoric parroted by the likes of his network, the rest of the liberal media, and Democrats for…

Tonight we heard, from NBC’s Lester Holt, the kind of papering over of a shocking act normally reserved for the initial outset of an Islamist terror attack: a declaration of ignorance over the motive that could’ve possibly possessed the individual to do such a thing, to wit: attempt to murder former President Donald Trump at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania.

Watch as Holt lets that fly…

CBS’s host of Face the Nation, Margaret Brennan, joined the network’s breaking coverage of Saturday’s assassination attempt of former President Trump at his Pennsylvania rally, where she was dismayed that a statement from campaign advisor Chris LaCivita might “escalate” Trump’s “us versus the system” rhetoric and that a statement from Trump himself didn’t lower “the temperature” even though…

Nicholas Fondacaro | July 13th, 2024 8:54 PM

Not long after former President Trump was almost assassinated on stage at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart brought never-Trumper Max Boot on as a guest for The Saturday Show and duo proceeded to talk about how political violence was a problem on both sides of the aisle and wanted people to calm down before speaking about it.

“How concerned are you, or should…

Joseph Vazquez | July 13th, 2024 7:30 PM

Despite everyone with functioning brains witnessing that an apparent assassination attempt just occurred on former President Donald Trump’s life on video, CNN instead ran a headline making it seem like he tripped. Yes, you read that right.

“Secret Service Rushes Trump Off Stage After He Falls at Rally,” read CNN’s grotesque headline after video surfaced of gunshots going off and…

They want Joe to go. The left-leaning “mainstream” media could not be making their views on Joe Biden clearer. Headline after headline portrays this, that or another Democrat leaking a headline somewhere that, sad as it is, Joe must go.

As if running their own Times editorial headlining this were not enough?

To Serve His Country, President Biden Should Leave the Race

PolitiFact, one of the fact-checking outlets with the ability to censor your Facebook posts, and PBS, the news channel subsidized by your tax dollars, announced in a joint statement on Friday on their respective websites that they are teaming up for the remainder of the 2024 election cycle, formalizing their June 27 Debate segment..

The statement involved plenty of mutual back-patting…

They’ve ravaged cities, destroyed businesses, torn down statues and made a mockery of the rule of law.

Democrats, both in Hollywood and within the Beltway, have either cheered them on or said little. Progressive law enforcement hasn’t so much as thrown a pamphlet at them, let alone the book.

A few stars even cut checks to keep some out of jail.

 

Steve Carell,…

Former South Carolina State Representative and current CNN talking head Bakari Sellers joined HBO’s Bill Maher on Friday’s edition of Real Time, but unfortunately for him, his anti-American race baiting ran into The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, who succinctly dismantled his arguments. Sellers had no response except to say, “I don't know what he just said.”

Shapiro and Sellers were going…
