While WikiLeaks revelations concerning corruption at the Clinton Foundation where released today, on Thursday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC’s political correspondent Kasie Hunt obnoxiously stated that “Hillary Clinton is enjoying an enormous honeymoon period. Whether it’s with the press who covers her or whether it’s with the polling. She's really riding high.”
Monday night, Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted that NBC Nightly News failed to cover steep price increases averaging 25 percent being imposed next year in Obamacare plans purchased through the program's national exchange.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Tuesday, the BBC’s Katty Kay burst out laughing at attempts to compare Donald Trump’s campaign to the successful Brexit referendum and revolution in Britain.
On this Tuesday’s Morning Joe, exactly two weeks before election night, host Joe Scarborough initiated the discussion stating that “the Trump campaign has been saying for a week now that this is going to be America's Brexit.”
In the aftermath of the final Presidential debate, this Thursday’s Morning Joe discussed how news headlines circulated surprise and outrage at Donald Trump’s response on accepting the outcome of the election more than any other aspect of the debate that covered a number of social issues as well as economic and foreign policy.
Hours after CNN’s Brian Stelter irresponsibly passed blame on the firebombing of a North Carolina Republican headquarters to Donald Trump, the Monday edition of New Day did the bare minimum to acknowledge the subject with a mere two news briefs totaling one minute and 37 seconds for a three-hour show (so 180 minutes) that almost assuredly would be higher if the incident happened at, say, a Democratic headquarters or NAACP office.
The liberal bias in press coverage of the presidential campaign has escalated dramatically in the last month before Election Day and on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, even MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had enough, calling out liberal co-host Mika Brzezinski and commentators on the morning show: “...the media can’t see past their sheer hatred of him, their uncontrollable sheer hatred of Donald Trump.”
Truly bad sign for the Clinton campaign when one of their most reliable apologists in media denounces Hillary Clinton while also -- wait for it -- effusively praising Donald Trump.
Mika Brzezinski's surprising twofer came on today's Morning Joe in response to Trump's handling of a New York Times story over the weekend alleging that he may have legally avoided paying federal incomes taxes for nearly two decades after suffering a nearly billion-dollar business loss in 1995.
On Tuesday morning, one of the more intriguing debates about media bias took place on MSNBC’s Morning Joe as the assembled co-hosts and Politico founder Jim Vandehei excoriated their colleagues in the media for flashing their liberal bias “in a way they never did before” in their collective desire to take down Donald Trump (to the benefit of Hillary Clinton).
During an appearance on Monday's edition of the Morning Joe program on the liberal MSNBC cable TV channel, Donna Brazile -- the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee -- behaved in what can best be described as an “animated” manner from swaying in her seat to making a number of expressive gestures. According to an article by Mark Finkelstein of the legalinsurrection.com website, “Brazile has been a fixture for years on talking-head shows” and someone he always thought of “as an affable but relatively reserved soul.”
After the smoke cleared in the voting for the ‘Damn Those Conservatives to Hell Award’ at Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala, frequent Notable Quotables subject and MSNBC host Chris Matthews emerged as the winner for a vicious smear after the New Hampshire primary on “troll-like” Ted Cruz for living “below the level of human life.”
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough clashed with Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook during Wednesday's edition of the Morning Joe program after the constantly smiling guest repeatedly avoided answering questions about the Democratic presidential candidate’s foreign policy.
Also, co-host Willie Geist asked Mook about Clinton’s past support of Barack Obama‘s “red line” against Bashar al-Assad‘s use of chemical weapons in Syria. “She supported the drawing of the red line. … Was it a mistake to draw the red line if the president was not willing to do something about it when it was crossed?”
The press continues to ignore reality by insisting that it's a settled matter that Hillary Clinton and conpany were never involved in fomenting and promoting the Barack Obama "birther" rumors. Even today, with damning new evidence that a campaign apparatchik started such an effort, and that a confidant whose relationship with the Clintons goes back to Bill Clinton's presidency pitched the story to a former journalist at the McClatchy news service, reporters Jill Colvin and Jonathan Lemire at the Associated Press insisted, as if it's an undisputed fact, that "there is no evidence" that "the 'birther movement' was started by Hillary Clinton."
