Conservatives & Republicans
Appearing on MSNBC Friday afternoon, journalist Tim Phelps, who broke the story of Anita Hill’s sexual harassment claims against Clarence Thomas in 1991, argued for Christine Blasey Ford to file criminal charges against Brett Kavanaugh with police in Montgomery County, Maryland based on her 36-year-old sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.
Google keeps waving off concerns that they’ve been showing bias against conservative viewpoints. Yet new reports indicate that a group of the company’s programmers discussed ways they could use the search engine to combat Donald Trump’s travel ban online.
Ah, yes, “David ‘Rodham’ Gergen” only brings the best political analysis to CNN as a senior political commentator!! Oh wait — what did he say on Thursday’s AC360? Oh, nevermind. Anyway, Gergen offered quite the malarkey on the Brett Kavanaugh fiacso, telling host Anderson Cooper that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is quite the underdog as it’s “Christine vs. Goliath” with few resources against Kavanaugh, the Republican Party, the White House, and possibly a female Republican lawyer doing the questioning in order to “impugn and discredit” her.
During a live interview with former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday’s Today show, co-host Craig Melvin invited the former Judiciary Committee Chairman to advise the Senate on how to handle a potential hearing with Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. In his response, Biden was given free rein to blast Republicans for trying to “character assassinate” Clarence Thomas accuser Anita Hill and even compared the claims against Kavanaugh to a graphic movie rape scene.
On Friday's New Day show on CNN, during a discussion of the upcoming congressional midterm elections and high desires by Democrats to defeat Texas Senator Ted Cruz, CNN Politics senior writer Harry Enten actually declared that, "unfortunately," Cruz is ahead of Democrat Beto O'Rourke in most of the polls.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch, discussing the Republicans' handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation, says: "you're seeing on display a metaphor of, like, what this party is, and just basically, just ignorant white men." Deutsch slurred of millions of decent, intelligent, Americans in the context of arguing that "the only move for the Republicans" is to dump Kavanaugh and "move on" because he is a "stain."
Sadly, since coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have received numerous death threats. During that time, Kavanaugh and his family have also received horrific treatment. Despite the seriousness all around, ABC’s World News Tonight sided with Ford on Thursday by choosing to only report the threats to her and threw those against Kavanaugh in the trash.
On Thursday morning, as the broadcast networks all seized on Democratic demands for an FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claims against Brett Kavanaugh, reporters on NBC, ABC, and CBS were quick to point to the Bureau’s investigation of Anita Hill’s sexual harassment claims against Clarence Thomas in 1991. However, none of the supposed journalists could seem to remember that the outcome of that inquiry was inconclusive.
While some of his liberal media colleagues were giving a megaphone to Democratic Senators demanding an FBI investigation into the attempted sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was busy making false claims that the bureau had said nothing about not investigating the charges. But, in fact, they had declined to investigate.
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.
With time running out for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to provide to some form of testimony with the Senate Judiciary Committee, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent their Wednesday evening broadcasts giving a boost to Democratic calls for an investigation into the Supreme Court nominee. Of course, they failed in their duty to inform their viewers that the FBI had already declined to investigate when the charges were brought to them over the weekend.
While watching live coverage of President Trump handing out meals to victims of Hurricane Florence in New Bern, North Carolina on Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi claimed that the event was “staged.” He was immediately corrected by the reporter on location who doubted that was the case.
