After the networks spent the morning going crazy over Clinton’s "emotional" and "historic" speech last night at the DNC, the cable news shows proved they couldn’t get enough either. Carol Costello on CNN’s Newsroom, provided one of the more over-the-top examples from the media’s fan club, calling Clinton women's "white knight."
Acting more like a doorman than a journalist during PBS coverage of the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose invited former Attorney General Eric Holder to blast Donald Trump: “You also said that Donald Trump, you questioned his gray matter. You mean he’s not smart enough to be president?”
In marked contrast to their coverage of the final night of the 2016 Republican convention, the nation's top Spanish-language television networks was characterized by overwhelmingly celebratory coverage of the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
The Democratic National Convention wrapped up Thursday evening following Hillary Clinton accepting the party’s nomination. Many were glad that evening such as the CNN panel that praised her as a “political genius.” CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was glad for as well, but he had a bone to pick with Bernie Sanders’ supporters who protested on the convention floor. “But the same thing conservatives said about Ted Cruz last week— have some dignity,” Lemon snipped at the protesters, “If you come to someone else's house have some respect.”
After having had a great time piecing together a list for readers of some crazy, surprising, and downright weird moments/statements from MSNBC’s late Monday night/early Tuesday morning coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), I thought it would be an appropriate time to do another one for the DNC’s closing night.
Hillary Clinton formally accepted the nomination to be Democratic Party’s standard bearer as their presidential candidate on Thursday evening, and CNN’s America’s Choice 2016 panel couldn’t be happier. “The words that came to my mind were kind of— sturdy, steely,” CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger gushed, “It was not an oratorical masterpiece. It did have its great moments.” Borger continued to praise Clinton:
Striking a different tone than the lukewarm reactions by ABC and NBC to Hillary Clinton’s DNC speech late Thursday night, CBS enthusiastically praised her “steadiness,” intro music choice of This Is My Fight Song and admitted they were “moved by how many times she said ‘strength’ and ‘together.’”
CBS and NBC's evening newscasts on Thursday hyped Chelsea Clinton's planned speech introducing her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Democratic National Convention. CBS's Vinitia Nair played up that Clinton "uses her mother's smarts and her father's flare." Nair trumpeted that "the girl named after a Joni Mitchell song, 'Chelsea Morning,' will finally have her night." NBC's Kristen Welker also touted the presidential daughter's "strong presence on the trail," and later claimed that Clinton is "already making her own mark on history."
Opening their Thursday night coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), ABC’s voice-over announcer couldn’t help but produce one last gushing pump-up video as he proclaimed “here we are” for “[t]his one historic moment in front of America” and the on-air personalities applauded Chelsea Clinton emphasizing Hillary as a grandmother.
El Director de Comunicaciones del Comité Nacional Demócrata, Luis Miranda, está en aprietos por las revelaciones de sus mensajes de correo electrónico criticando a algunos de los aliados pro amnistía fuertes del Partido Demócrata, a quienes califica de "irresponsables".
In an embarrassing display of flip-flopping, ABC’s World News Tonight anchor David Muir seemingly backtracked Thursday night on a claim from two days earlier that Hillary Clinton was “still so unknown to many in this country” to more appropriately ruling that “but she knows, this is a country divided” that has “very strong opinion[s] about her already.”
CNN earned their moniker as the Clinton News Network on Thursday as they awaited the highly anticipated speech to be delivered by Chelsea Clinton at the Democratic National. The America’s Choice 2016 panel gushed as they reminisced about Chelsea and were awe struck by her transformation from an “awkward little girl” to “a remarkable young woman.” “I sort of feel like all of us are kind of god parents of Chelsea,” stated Bill Press. For CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger there was timeless image of Chelsea she couldn’t get out of her head.
