Appearing on MSNBC in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday, with fellow anti-gun activist Stephanie Ruhle, New York Times finance editor Andrew Ross Sorkin touted his latest column demanding that banks and credit card companies ban their customers from making gun purchases with credit cards.
Since the Parkland, Florida school shooting late last week, the liberal media has been leaping at every opportunity to put one of the young anti-gun student activists on the screen so they can parrot back liberal talking points on guns. A great demonstration of this occurred on Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball where host Chris Matthews took anti-gun activist Chris Grady through his NRA/GOP bashing paces.
RESTON, VA — Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued a statement Monday responding to the media’s coverage of a 2016 post-election anti-Trump rally which was recently revealed to have been organized by Russians. On Friday, an indictment filing signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed Russians allegedly staged both pro-Trump and anti-Trump rallies with intent to sow discord in the United States.
While attempting to boost the candidacy of a Democrat running to unseat Republican California Congressman Devin Nunes, MSNBC inadvertently revealed that a lot voters in that district don’t really care about the Russia investigation. Even the Democrat himself complained that “the media only talk about the Russia thing.”
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, Washington Post columnist and phony conservative Jennifer Rubin accused FNC host Laura Ingraham and Fox News generally -- which she called a "racist outfit" -- of using "racist innuendo" as she called for advertisers to pull from the right-leaning news network. Her comments came as the group discussed Ingraham's recent criticism of NBA player LeBron James for attacking President Donald Trump.
For anyone wondering how former MSNBC host Ed Schultz has been occupying his time since the far-left host was booted from MSNBC a couple of years ago, the answer to that question would seem to be that he's going even further off the rails if his current show from this past week is an indication. Schultz -- who currently hosts the Russia Today network's The News with Ed Schultz -- actually gave an unchallenged forum to an anti-Israel activist -- Miko Peled -- who not only called the Israeli government a "racist" regime that is engaging "genocide" against Arabs, but the guest even called for the U.S. to take military action against the Jewish state by sending the Sixth Fleet to the Gaza Strip and forcing Israel to end its blockade.
On Thursday, several MSNBC anchors at various times of day were fixated on how NRA spending had benefited a number of prominent Republican political figures who had tweeted out sentiments regarding "thoughts and prayers" after the Florida shootings. After MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle first raised the issue Thursday morning and spent almost three minutes listing and showing images of nine Republicans who had benefited from NRA spending, fellow hosts Katy Tur, Ali Velshi and Brian Williams followed her lead later in the day anchoring their regular shows.
Former Republican and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace further proved she isn’t any different than the hard-core leftists on her network on Thursday’s Deadline: White House. Wallace joined in with her liberal panel in ripping into Paul Ryan, Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican leadership in their response to Wednesday’s high school shooting in Parkland, FL, even making the ludicrous claim that the only reason why this tragedy was getting any attention was because the victims were “white kids.”
On Thursday's Velshi and Ruhle on MSNBC, as the entire show was devoted to the school shootings in Florida, host Stephanie Ruhle repeatedly mocked opponents of gun control as she listed nine prominent Republicans on screen who have tweeted condolences for the victims with the MSNBC host noting how much money the NRA has spent supporting each of them. She went on to declare that a hunter who needs an AR-15 to hit a target must be a "lousy loser" and then seemed to make a veiled hint that those who resist new gun laws are "jerks."
One can almost count on MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews to make an eyebrow-raising statement on a given night. Thursday night saw Matthews up his game with a stream of fake news, fearmongering, and liberal talk points on gun control a day after the Parkland, Florida high school massacre.
Flashing his inner Jim Acosta (again), CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer harassed and lobbied Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott for gun control restrictions in light of the Parkland shooting to stick it to the National Rifle Association (NRA) and “prevent this from happening again” without any policy prescription besides a gun ban.
