What is this? Democracy dies in....silence? Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Wolf dedicated a segment with host Wolf Blitzer and Supreme Court analyst Joan Biskupic wondering why the current eight Supreme Court justices have remained silent and not opined on the three-decades-old sexual misconduct allegation against nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Perhaps more insane than anything Biskupic or Blitzer said was this CNN chyron that’s fit for a straightjacket: “Supreme Turmoil; How Justices Feel About Partisan Confirmation Battles.”
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried his best on Wednesday to help keep Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court nominee in the face of a three-decades-old sexual misconduct allegation, peddling a conspiracy theory about accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and promoted a dubious claim from a Ford classmate.
In a sight that seemed unpredictable a few years ago, NBC host Megyn Kelly appeared on the Wednesday’s Hardball to inform MSNBC host Chris Matthews that, concerning the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford “is running out of options” and “needs to show up” for Monday’s scheduled hearing.
La edición más reciente del semanario político Al Punto de la cadena Univisión presentó una entrevista con el gobernador de Puerto Rico en el aniversario del paso catastrófico del huracán María sobre el territorio isleño. El presentador Jorge Ramos aprovechó la oportunidad para politizar aún más las postrimerías del huracán y propulsar una narrativa partidista.
The most recent edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto featured an interview with the governor of Puerto Rico on the eve of the first anniversary of Hurricane María’s catastrophic landfall upon the island territory. Host Jorge Ramos took the opportunity to further politicize the aftermath of the hurricane and push a hyperpartisan narrative.
Wednesday afternoon’s MSNBC Live illustrated where the left stood on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco as host Katy Tur aired a video mash-up comparing Kavanaugh to other men such as the late Roger Ailes, Corey Lewandowski, Roy Moore, and Rob Porter because they too were firmly defended by President Trump as they faced their own allegations of sexual impropriety. In reality, Tur’s comparison is ghoulish at worst and, at best, misguided.
In just over 11 minutes on Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, one panel encapsulated why the liberal media are not fans of due process regarding the sexual misconduct claim against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and questioning the accuser’s story equates to painful sexism.
El congresista saliente Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) compareció en la edición más reciente del semanario político Al Punto, de la cadena Univisión, para hablar de temas de inmigración y de la respuesta del gobierno del presidente Donald Trump ante el embate del huracán María sobre Puerto Rico. Pero en el transcurso de anotarse un punto contra el gobierno de Trump, resulta que Gutiérrez difamó a las Fuerzas Armadas de los Estados Unidos.
Retiring Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) went on the most recent edition of Univision's weekly political talker Al Punto, in order to discuss immigration and the Trump administration's response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria wrought upon Puerto Rico. But in the process of scoring a point against the administration, he smeared the United States Armed Forces.
Published on Wednesday, the latest edition of National Review Online’s The Jamie Weinstein Show podcast featured a lively, hour-plus conversation with CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter. The full podcast is highly recommended as Stelter delved into his upbringing and his (sadly, wrong) views about media bias in addition so solid, universal career advice.
Likely still bitter after having wasted millions trying to make Jeb Bush president, Republican strategist and frequent MSNBC guest Mike Murphy quipped on Thursday’s Deadline: White House that he wouldn’t have used to a time machine to go back in time to stop Hitler but instead change Donald Trump.
MSNBC’s Hardball was in rare form on Tuesday, featuring host Chris Matthews and his various guests perpetually stepping in it. It started with Matthews comparing anti-Trump books to the synoptic Gospels and it snowballed from there, ranging from Matthews touting John Kerry’s new book as being so monumental, panelists the President lacking empathy for hurricane 9/11 victims, and ending with Matthews dubbing the First Family “un-American.”
