Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, NBC correspondent Katy Tur denounced Donald Trump’s campaign team for demanding fair treatment from the press ahead of the upcoming debate: “So what they’re trying to do is find a way to best game this system. And what you’re seeing on TV, all over the airwaves, is his campaign manager and his surrogates trying to blame the media before the media has even covered the debate.”
In the September 26 edition: top newspapers want reporters to go easy on Hillary Clinton in order to save the country from the “dangerous” Donald Trump, as a New York Times columnist confesses her liberal friends want the media to give Hillary “a total free pass.” Also: CBS tweaks a video to hide Bill Clinton saying his wife has “frequently” had episodes similiar to her 9/11 collapse; CNN creates a false quote of Trump proposing “racial profiling” and then attacks him for it; and Andrea Mitchell frets that the terrorist attack in New York City will knock Hillary “off message.”
On display Sunday morning was the latest example of how the dominant media are grossly misinforming viewers about police shootings and the issue of race as veteran singer and liberal activist Harry Belafonte claimed that "all" of those being "murdered" are "black or African-American." He appeared as a guest on PoliticsNation on MSNBC to plug his upcoming event promoting political activism.
MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News, Saturday, to discuss the newly leaked e-mails of NBC and MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell decrying Donald Trump’s nomination as “awful.” Talking to Cost of Freedom host Neil Cavuto, Bozell sarcastically replied, “Be still my heart at the revelation.”
On Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during a discussion of recent high-profile cases of black suspects being shot and killed by police, panel member April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks made a blatantly wrong claim that the "vast majority" of criminal suspects who were killed by police officers in 2015 were black. In fact, the source that she actually cited -- the Washington Post -- found that twice as many whites as blacks were killed by the police in 2015. Neither host Chuck Todd nor the other two panel members -- Matt Bai of Yahoo News and Perry Bacon of NBC News -- took the time to correct her.
MSNBC journalist Joy Reid beat out stiff competition to win the “Hail Hillary Award" at the Media Research Center’s 2016 DisHonors Awards, Thursday night. Special celebrity guests and a raucous crowd chose the host for dubiously insisting that only, maybe, the Founding Fathers could equal the amazing Hillary Clinton.
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.”
Filling in for host Andrea Mitchell during MSNBC’s 12 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, Peter Alexander worried that Donald Trump only had a “low bar” to surpass in the upcoming debates: “Do they [the Clinton campaign] have real concerns...that the bar has been set so low for Donald Trump, in effect, that clearing that bar of acceptability is not much of a challenge? How do they combat that in some way?”
As Charlotte, North Carolina was being torn apart on Wednesday night, cable networks CNN, the Fox News Channel (FNC), and MSNBC offered wall-to-wall coverage of the carnage and tense scenes that, during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour, resulted in the one civilian being shot by another civilian and injuries to roughly a dozen police officers but MSNBC saw no reason in that hour to inform their viewers of the rampant looting at hotels and storefronts by the Black Lives Matter protesters.
New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman has been the liberal media’s leading investigator/prosecutor of former Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the network’s settlement with Gretchen Carlson on sexual harassment claims. Now Evan Gahr in the New York Observer reports that Sherman didn’t exactly come clean with readers about lengthy negotiations to get hired by MSNBC:
The roundtable on MSNBC’s Hardball early Wednesday evening dismissed and ridiculed the findings of the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finding that only Russian President Vladimir Putin is more disliked among Americans among U.S. politicians, selected global leaders, and major U.S. institutions.
With the first 2016 presidential debate approaching on Monday, a portion of Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC was dedicated to looking back at some iconic moments from past debates and host Chris Matthews used the time to express his sheer anger that still permeates four years later at Mitt Romney for his “terrible performance” in the first 2012 debate where he “walked in like he’s a better man” than President Obama.
