Jeb Bush’s entry into the 2016 GOP primary race hands the liberal media an establishment candidate that they enjoy using as a tool to whack conservatives. Bush’s stances on immigration, Common Core and other issues have drawn praise from the likes of Chris Matthews who cooed: “He wants to run on his own terms. He’s not going to become a wacko bird. He’s not going to join the clown car...he believes in Common Core education. He believes in immigration.”
First, polls show Americans don't think Hillary is trustworthy. Then her campaign manager denies that such polls exist. Then her pollster denies that the campaign manager didn't tell the truth about it. Not exactly a formula to build trust.
On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough mocked Robby Mook for having, as our Jeff Meyer reported, denied the undeniable, claiming on yesterday's Face the Nation that "no poll" shows Americans don't trust Hillary. Said Scarborough sarcastically: "well, actually, yeah, they do. You have to respect him for saying they don't." When Scarborough confronted Hillary pollster Joel Benenson with the fact that Mook "didn't tell the truth," Benenson replied: "He did tell the truth. He got interrupted by John [Dickerson], who is a great guy. That's the way these shows go." Have a look at the clip: Dickerson didn't interrupt Mook, who had all the time to tell the truth and chose not to.
This week, the New York Times sinks its investigative teeth into Marco Rubio, and makes the bombshell discovery that the GOP presidential candidate had four traffic tickets in a 17-year span.
Meanwhile, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pops up on NBC's Meet the Press to absurdly declare Hillary Clinton a "centrist," and that "most Democrats are not lefties," while Newsweek smears that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh's "ideals" have become the "mainstream" of the Republican Party.
Andrea Mitchell scored an interview with Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Friday, but spent the entire interview peppering the senator with questions about Hillary Clinton. This included pushing Sanders on whether Bill Clinton's claim of innocence would be enough to drop any investigation into the family's foundation.
Friday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC took a strange turn during a discussion of Bill Clinton’s latest comments about the Clinton Foundation scandal when co-host Mika Brzezinski demanded to know from panelist and New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters “why your paper is so interested in Marco Rubio's driveway” as opposed to continuing to dig into allegations surrounding the Clinton Foundation.
On Thursday night’s edition of MSNBC’s All In, host Chris Hayes turned to none other than former Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate and abortion activist Wendy Davis to trash Jeb Bush over his views concerning the need for two-parent households and Senator Lindsey Graham’s introduction of a bill in the Senate that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks.
You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, Richard Nixon famously declared after losing the race for governor of California in 1962. Little could he have known that liberals would delight in kicking him around in perpetuity, regardless of whether he deserved it.
Latest example of the beloved left-wing pastime known as Nixon bashing based on liberal mythology that can never die -- Rachel Maddow dusting off the moldy oldy of Nixon's alleged "secret plan" to end the war in Vietnam, purportedly divulged while Nixon was running for president in 1968.
One clue that the New York Times might have gone too far by publishing aggressive hit pieces on Marco Rubio: Even Andrea Mitchell thinks the liberal paper made a mistake. After playing a clip of Jon Stewart mocking the Times, Mitchell said of the articles on the Republican's speeding habits and his lack of wealth: "How is [this] front page news?"
The June 10 edition of The Last Word featured all the predictable elements of a liberal media discussion on abortion. Host Lawrence O’Donnell invited Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, former Democratic congressman Barney Frank, and the Jeremy Peters of the New York Times to the program to bash the Republican “war on women.” The discussion concerned a proposed 20-week abortion ban that’s currently stuck in the Senate.
MSNBC's Alex Wagner devoted a full segment on her June 10 Now program to kvetching with Planned Parenthood chief Cecile Richards about how great an injustice it was that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to strike down a Texas abortion-clinic regulation bill which had resulted in the shuttering of clinics which fell below code.
Alex Wagner, along with her three liberal guests, ripped Jerry Seinfeld on her MSNBC program on Wednesday, for his blast at "creepy" political correctness. Wagner hinted that Seinfeld had "fallen behind the times." New York magazine's Annie Lowrey mocked his critique: "I kind of roll my eyes at Jerry Seinfeld. You know, he's a billionaire – like I don't feel sorry for him if people don't laugh hard enough at his jokes."
CNN president Jeff Zucker targeted his network's competitors, MSNBC and Fox News, during a Wednesday interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Zucker returned fire in response to a 2014 claim by Fox News Channel CEO Roger Ailes that CNN is "out of the news business." The network executive retorted, "It's absurd on its face. The fact is, we're doing more news than we've ever done. We're doing more news than anybody else."
