The sparks flew on Fox News Channel Monday night as host Tucker Carlson went toe-to-toe with California Congressman Eric Swalwell (D) on everything from the Russia investigation to gun control. And when it came to the later, Carlson grilled the Congressman on his gun confiscation plan and called him out on the hypocrisy of allowing himself and the rest Congress to be protected with certain guns while the average American citizen would be forced to give theirs up.
The school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas wasn’t carried out with the media’s favorite weapon to mischaracterize and demonize (the AR-15), but this was only a minor speed bump for those looking to take away Americans' rights. During Monday’s Hardball on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews brought on anti-gun activist Nicole Hockley to join him in whining about those who respected the Second Amendment. During the segment, Matthews absurdly claimed that since NRA had hired Oliver North to be their president, the organization was somehow “immune to justice.”
As has been stated previously, the liberal media made total fools out of themselves last Wednesday night when they rushed to claim President Trump had slammed all immigrants as “animals.” And when the video of the full context came out, nearly all of them issued corrections and retractions. Yet despite the media’s own retractions, panelists on CBS’s Face the Nation and CNN’s Reliable Sources thought it was fair to do that to the President given his past comments about immigrants.
The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening.
One of CNN’s most blatant hypocrisies is their double standard when it comes slamming Fox News hosts for their relationships with President Trump. This criticism could be valid if those same CNN employees didn’t spend their free time palling around with those out to carve out their pound of flesh. The latest example of this was exposed via a late night tweet from a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) showing CNN host Don Lemon, among other journalists, having a grand old time with “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
The anti-Trump Resistance appeared to have been dealt a crippling blow Wednesday evening when news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn’t indict President Trump. The revelation came from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani who said Mueller admitted to him, investigators would be following decades-old DOJ guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted. This Washington-shaking news went largely unreported by the network evening broadcasts. In contrast, they spent over nine minutes on pointless pop culture news.
The media’s anti-Israel nonsense was firing on all cylinders Monday as the United States officially opened its embassy in their capital city of Jerusalem. And in an over-the-top, disgusting, and downright hysterical display on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude suggested that Israel was killing scores of babies in border clashes with Hamas backed agitators where over 50 people were allegedly killed. He was basically given the green light for his outburst by host Katy Tur, who herself suggested that the U.S.'s choice in the matter was between peace or siding with Israel.
CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News.
Of course, following the resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) for allegations of beating his various girlfriends over the years, a key concern for the liberal media has been ensuring his litany of litigation against President Trump would continue onward. It was a major point of discussion during CNN Newsroom Tuesday afternoon as host Brianna Keilar questioned CNN political commentator and New York City journalist Errol Louis about the future of the numerous lawsuits.
It’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.”
An angry Chris Matthews ended Wednesday’s Hardball by going on a “Trump Watch” diatribe about how he really wanted a verdict in the Trump-Russia probe. Of course, the only outcome he seemed to consider for a verdict was President Trump’s guilt. And bizarrely enough, Matthews admitted his “passion” for a verdict was driven by his recent viewing of a fictitious television series involving Russian spies working in America.
Early last month, CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter was apoplectic that Sinclair Broadcasting Group dared to have anchors on its network of local television outlets read a scripted corporate statement railing against fake news and promising to remain factual in their reporting. Flash forward to Tuesday, May 1, and the latest instance of a media corporation pressuring its journalists involved the women of NBC feeling pressured to sign a letter defending Tom Brokaw, and the network’s reputation, from more sexual misconduct allegations. And on this, Stelter was dead silent.
