CNN’s Jones on Racism, Violence: Blame 'White, Liberal Hillary Voters'

Liberal CNN commentator Van Jones on Friday surprised a lot of people when he blamed America’s race problems not on the Republican Party or red states in general, but on “white, liberal Hillary Clinton voters.” Talking about the George Floyd death and the violence and riots in Minneapolis, Jones said of people who are angry: “They're tired of people saying over and over again that, you know, we're just basically one bill away, one election away from some progress.”He blamed, “It is not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we Read More

Nets Cheer Lefty Who Compared Reagan to Hitler: ‘Echo for

When an important conservative dies, journalists make sure to note that he angered liberals. In 2016, The Washington Post marked the death of Antonin Scalia with this angry front-page headline: “Supreme Court Conservative Dismayed Liberals.”Yet the networks on Thursday offered little to indicate that far-left gay activist Larry Kramer was controversial. Instead, ABC, CBS and NBC “celebrated” the man who compared Ronald Reagan to Hitler as a “monumental” hero who will “echo for generations.” On ABC’s Good Morning America there was no debate about Kramer’s greatness. Whit Johnson told his audience, “We are celebrating the life of Larry Read More

WATCH: These Cable Hosts Savage Each Other Over ‘Your Friend’

The usually more placid Squawk Box exploded on Wednesday as two of the co-hosts blasted each other about the shutdown, jobs and Donald Trump.

As the yelling increased, he told Sorkin: “You panicked about the market! Panicked about COVID! Panicked about the ventilators! Panicked about the PPE! Panicked about ever going back again!” Sorkin spat back: “100,000 people died, Joe! And Read More

ABC Scores Interview With Omar, Hides Her History of Anti-Semitism

Good Morning America on Tuesday scored an exclusive interview with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, allowing the Democrat to hype her new book. Not mentioned at all in the interview? Her history of anti-Semitic remarks as well as other controversies. Shockingly, however, co-host Amy Robach pressed Omar (twice) on the woman accusing Joe Biden of sexual assault.Robach quizzed the Congresswoman on where she now stands on Tara Reade: “This weekend, you were quoted in a London paper saying you believed Tara Reade, who has accused Vice President Biden, of course, of sexual assault. But you also said in a tweet yesterday Read More

FLASHBACK: Using Memorial Day to Trash Trump and Question 'Heroes'

This Memorial Day weekend, the MRC’s FLASHBACK series has already reminded you of MSNBC's Chris Hayes admitting he was “uncomfortable” referring to fallen military members as heroes. But there are other examples of the media using this holiday for their own purposes. On the 2019 Memorial Day edition of Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski tried (and failed) to get guests to use the day to trash Donald Trump.Talking to Mike Barnicle, she offered this bad taste comparison. I want to ask you what your reflections are during this time in terms of our attitudes in America, our knowledge Read More

FLASHBACK: MSNBC Host ‘Uncomfortable’ Calling Fallen Soldiers ‘Heroes’

It was exactly eight years ago, Memorial Day weekend 2012, that MSNBC's Chris Hayes admitted he was “uncomfortable” calling fallen military members “heroes.” Appearing on his weekend show Up With Chris Hayes, the host attempted to explain why the word hero bothers him so. Hayes fretted, “I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words ‘heroes.’.... I feel comfortable, uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war.”  Classy way to honor the fallen on Memorial Read More

King: Corona Kept Us From Covering This Biden Story (Not

According to Gayle King, the coronavirus pandemic has kept the media from covering a VERY serious story related to Joe Biden. The Tara Reade sexual assault allegation? No, of course not. Biden’s endorsements. That was the laughable claim made on Tuesday’s Late Show as Stephen Colbert asked King what stories were being ignored during the virusThe CBS This Morning co-host lamented, “I can't believe that we're not talking about a political campaign, campaign 2020. You know, we're sitting here in may heading into June. The conventions are supposed to be July, August.” King complained, “We are Read More

MSNBC Cheers Pelosi's Attacks on Trump as Fat: 'Straight Talker!'

Proving just how juvenile the network can be when it comes to personal insults against Republicans, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on Tuesday appeared delighted at Nancy Pelosi’s attacks on Donald Trump’s weight, cheering that “the country has a new straight talker.” Rather than even question whether it’s helpful for bipartisanship to call the President “morbidly obese,” Wallace justified it.In an interview, Wallace tossed this softball: “What you said is actually something that can be corroborated in the White House’s release of the President’s last physical, which is that his weight does qualify him as Read More
