In a humorous and pithy takedown of President Obama for his performance on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday, Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt appeared on Monday’s edition of The Kelly File to express his astonishment with how Obama’s reached “the point of utter incredulity, even with people who were once very admiring” like 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft.
Following the media frenzy in July over the death of Zimbabwe’s Cecil the Lion, the coverage was decidedly different on Monday evening when ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News failed to inform their viewers of the fact that officials in the authoritarian country would not be pressing charges against American dentist Dr. Walter Palmer for shooting Cecil.
On Monday, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News prominently touted the claims by a fired staffer on the House Select Committee on Benghazi that the panel’s sole aim is to takedown former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a move that gives her “a potential lifeline” and “another blow” to the committee.
New on October 12: On Monday’s New Day, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota scolded Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson for how he has “offended” people, asking: “Is it possible that Dr. Carson, while meaning well, is missing some sort of sensitivity chip?”
On Sunday, ABC's Good Morning America and CBS's Sunday Morning followed the lead of the New York Times in omitting the extremist history of Louis Farrakhan in their coverage of the "Justice or Else" rally marking the 20h anniversary of the Million Man March. The Big Three programs also failed to mention that former pastor to then-Senator Barack Obama, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, spoke at the event and claimed that "Jesus was a Palestinian" during his speech.
ABC, NBC and CNN on Sunday and Monday couldn’t get enough of Saturday Night Live mocking “America’s love affair with guns.” NBC’s Today replayed the entire sketch on Sunday and then hyped it again on Monday. On Monday’s Good Morning America, co-host Robin Roberts enthused that comedian/gun control activist Amy Schumer was “all over social media this weekend!”
In a softball interview on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer teed up liberal actor Robert Redford to push propaganda about his latest role as disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather: “60 Minutes did a piece on George W. Bush and his National Guard service. It was called into question when documents it was based on were thought to perhaps be forgeries. Did you have a viewpoint, once you started reading up on it, going into making the project?”
On Monday, NBC’s Today seized on fired Benghazi Committee staffer Bradley Publiska slamming the investigation as a “partisan” attack on Hillary Clinton as correspondent Andrea Mitchell proclaimed: “...those sensational new charges come against the Republican-led Benghazi committee...from a Republican staff member...”
Says Joe Scarborough, if Jeb Bush had Donald Trump's poll numbers, the media would proclaim the race "T-K-Over." Yet rather than touting Trump's commanding lead, the liberal media speculates instead on the Donald's "exit strategy." That had Scarborough blasting CNN and other MSM outlets as "Trump deniers" on today's Morning Joe.
Why is the MSM unwilling to give Donald his due? Scarborough suggested the media should "just admit: we hate him so much, that even when he is trouncing everybody, we loathe this vulgarian from Queens who we've never accepted into our club and screw him, we're never going to give him any sort of respect." Concluded Joe: "I call them Trump deniers."
Conservative comedian and talk show host Joe Piscopo brought the laughter to Thursday night’s 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards. While the rest of the dinner hammered the liberal media, “The Funnies” were a compilation of the year’s most humorous clips, as complied by the MRC.
Yeah, that's been our big beef with the New York Times: it's too tough on top Democrats . . .
So we'll all sleep better now that Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has assured us that the paper is not "too aggressive" or "unfair" in its coverage of Hillary Clinton. On CNN's Reliable Sources today, Bacquet, as proof of the paper's even-handedness, noted to host Brian Stelter a Times story on Benghazi that "did not point a finger at her" and another story probing problems within the Benghazi committee.
Comedian Amy Schumer got a surprise during Saturday Night Live when the Manhattan audience didn’t display much enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton. In her monologue, she set up a series of jokes by relaying how “I just met Hillary – yeah, I was pretty psyched about that.” After a smattering of applause, she noted her disappointment with the audience: “A little discouraging, the amount of applause.”
