The Department of Veterans Affairs has been a dysfunctional mess for decades and thus taking place over multiple presidencies. The latest example of the VA’s dysfunction has been an apparent “computer glitch” that resulted in veterans not receiving their G.I. Bill benefits. But facts be damned (like most nights) to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night’s Prime Time as he blamed all the VA’s problems directly on President Trump.
At 5:45 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, TMZ first broke the news that Democratic lawyer and 2020 presidential hopeful Michael Avenatti was arrested by Los Angeles police on domestic violence charges. Despite the fact that Avenatti granted them over 200 combined appearances on their networks, both CNN and MSNBC downplayed the charges. MSNBC brushed over it while CNN spent part of the time correcting TMZ and touting people who claimed Avenatti wouldn’t hurt anyone.
The same night the liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were acting as though Trump’s combative press conference on Wednesday was some kind of affront to the First Amendment, the Washington D.C. area home of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was under assault by a radical leftist mob shouting threats. During both their morning and evening broadcasts Thursday, ABC and NBC ignored the actual attack on someone’s free speech.
Despite the fact that Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp held a lead outside the threshold needed for a runoff, Democrats and the liberal media were not conceding the state’s gubernatorial election. During CNN’s Election Night in America in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst April Ryan was in hysterics as she pushed conspiracies of voter suppression, even going so far as to say voting right didn’t exist anymore.
Election Night 2018 was a mixed bag that left both parties walking away feeling happy. Republicans blunted the so-called “blue wave” and captured key governorships while Democrats flipped control of the House. During CNN’s Election Night in America, Tuesday, liberal activist and commentator Van Jones was a whirlwind of emotions as each development unfurled.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
President Trump sent the liberal media into a tailspin last week when he put out a midterm campaign ad that highlighted the murders committed by illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes and denounced the Democrats for their views on illegal immigration. CNN in particular, rushed to call the ad racist and during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter boasted about how his network refused to sell commercial time to air the ad.
It’s always funny when a member of the liberal media pretends that they’re not in lock step with the Democratic Party. During the later portion of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, incendiary CNN host Don Lemon proclaimed that he didn’t belong to any political party and was an “Independent” just like Democratic Party campaign star Oprah Winfrey.
CNN host Jake Tapper has a pretty bad habit of sitting back and letting leftist guests get away with saying some really radical stuff. Earlier this year, Tapper let Parkland student Cameron Kasky attack Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) by equating him to the kid that shot up his school. Now, during Monday’s edition of The Lead, Tapper took the same approach as GQ magazine correspondent Julia Ioffe claimed: “this President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
According to the rage-fueled tirade of MSNBC faux Republican strategist Steve Schmidt during Monday’s edition of All In, presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, the President, “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they have made that have triggered and radicalized these crazy people.”
Episode Three of the fourth season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, titled “I’m on My Own Path,” included a sweet storyline about the wedding between Heather and Hector. Unfortunately, this is a show on the CW network and a Bible-bashing comment had to make its way into the dialogue.
It’s no secret CNN has a great disdain for Fox News and right-wing media in general, so it was no surprise that during Sunday’s so-called Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter and his panel (made up of largely liberal and anti-Trump commentators) blamed both for the political violence and death from the past few days. Only one, the Daily Beast’s Matt Lewis, dared to admit that blame for the super-heated rhetoric, hate, and violence belonged on all sides and called out the cable news hate machine.
