Journalists on all three networks on Monday continued to howl with outrage over Britain’s decision to exit the European Union. Reporters on ABC, CBS and NBC attacked the “worst decision” that could lead to “economic disaster.” On the Today show, analyst Jim Cramer assailed, “In terms of the financial chaos and collapse, it’s just one of the worst moves I’ve seen.”
Sometime people can’t hold in a good laugh, but the hosts of CBS This Morning had a real difficult time holding in their giggling as they interviewed the star of the new show Braindead, Tony Shalhoub, who plays a Republican senator who has alien insects eating away at his brain, causing the lifelong politician to become a hardcore conservative. During the segment, the hosts of the show couldn't help themselves as they alluded the fact they felt that real life Republicans suffer from the same affliction as the ones on the show.
On Monday, all three network morning shows gushed over the left-wing activism on display during Sunday night’s BET Awards. In particular, the hosts and correspondents on NBC, ABC, and CBS were enthralled by Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams launching into a racially-charged screed against “this invention called whiteness [that] uses and abuses” African Americans.
This just in: Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren performed live in a rock concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday. According to their devoted groupies at MSNBC, the concert served as an “audition” for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is being vetted for vice president. The two women entered the stage “hand in hand, locked in arms” as they readied the crowd for their performance.
Moments after the Supreme Court handed down a ruling on Monday morning that struck down a pro-life Texas law, MSNBC Live host Thomas Roberts brought on none other than former Democratic Texas State Senator and liberal hero Wendy Davis to discuss how she “was fighting back tears” seconds before her live shot and inquired about “where those pink sneakers are” from her 2013 filibuster for abortion.
ABC was the last of the “big three” networks to break in Monday morning with the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down a pro-life Texas law, but they didn’t hold back their approval as the assembled cast of smiling correspondents hailed the “fairly sweeping decision” and expressed glee at the “party right here” by abortion activists “lining up since 4:00 am. to witness this moment.”
The Pope is at it again, this time issuing an apology to the LGBT community over the Catholic Church’s messaging over the nature of homosexuality and other LGBT related issues. During the segment discussing the Pope’s statement on CBS This Morning, co-hosts Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell, and Charlie Rose fawned and praised the Pope’s bending to the liberal tradition of raising up Christian figures who embrace the LGBT community, while attacking Christians who refuse to allow secular worldviews to bend their faith.
NBC journalists on Monday morning excitedly broke in with a special report to announce a “big win” for abortion as the “very controversial” Texas law had been struck down. Regarding the efforts by the state to require abortion clinics to meet certain standards, Pete Williams breathlessly alerted, “The state passed the law known as HB2 with a very controversial vote and the state said it was necessary to protect women's health.”
On Sunday, CBS's Face the Nation took a moment to note the latest embarrassing revelations in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as ABC's This Week and NBC's Meet the Press both ignored the finding. Even CBS buried the development at the end of its roundtable segment, as host John Dickerson hurriedly raised the issue: "Susan, we have just about 20 seconds left. There was news on the email front with Hillary Clinton. Didn't turn over an email that showed there were problems with her server. That's not good."
An example of how unhinged press bias builds on itself was on display Sunday morning on CNN's Inside Politics.
Associated Press reporter Lisa Lerer told other panel members who were criticizing Hillary Clinton for her lack of an in-person public statement on the the results of Thursday's Brexit referendum that they should doubt the legitimacy of the result. She did so by referring to "all the great anecdotal stories on the BBC and other outlets" which found a few voters, clearly surprised by the result given pre-election polling which predicted that Remain would win, who said, in Lerer's words, "Well it was a protest vote. I didn’t think we’d leave."
After spending the start of his own CNN show condemning the supporters of Brexit for being ignorant racists, Fareed Zakaria appeared on Reliable Sources to condemn pro-Brexit papers. The disgraced reporter admitted that the media does “tend to be, probably, left of center,” but argued the real bias is that, “the media does have a bias in favor of facts.” Zakaria accused papers in favor of Brexit of using only an emotional argument.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Inside Politics, CNN's Jeff Zeleny asserted that, although the House Democratic sit-in to protest in favor of more gun control was a "stunt," that it was a "stunt that the vast majority of the country supports." The CNN correspondent was presumably reacting to a flawed CNN poll which host John King had just cited claiming that 90 percent of respondents support "background checks" for gun purchases while 85 percent favor banning those on terrorism watch lists from buying guns.
