As part of his post-New Hampshire analysis on Thursday’s Nightly Show, Comedy Central personality Larry Wilmore used a clip of Senator Marco Rubio telling supporters he failed them in Saturday’s ABC debate to also argue it could be used as an admission that he had erectile dysfunction.
In an extensive interview for Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley took a stroll with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders around his childhood neighborhood in Brooklyn but not before a surprisingly tough sit-down that hit Sanders from the right on tax increases, the minimum wage, and how his ideas would be guaranteed to be “dead on arrival” in Congress.
With New Hampshire in the dust and the 2016 presidential campaign moving southward to the Palmetto State, MSNBC's Chris Matthews tonight sought to paint conservative Republican Senator Ted Cruz as a latter-day Richard Nixon ginning up a bag full of "dirty tricks" for the February 20 South Carolina contest.
Appearing on the February 10 edition of Fox Business Network's Risk & Reward, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell blasted lefty tabloid papers like the New York Daily News for insulting Republican primary voters and engaging in a "campaign of character assassination."
Does this man even listen to himself speak? Disgraced former Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Wednesday insisted that, given Marco Rubio’s habit of repeating talking points, all of the Senator’s comments will now be “under the microscope” and must be investigated. This coming from the journalist who lost his job after being exposed for serial falsehoods.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, former NBC anchor David Gregory underlined the perils for the future of Hillary Clinton's campaign: "The danger for the Clintons, just like in 2008, is essentially saying...'This is a pipe dream. He can't get any of this stuff done.' A lot of people who support Sanders don't want to hear that. They want to hear what he's actually capable of doing; and they want to give voice to that aspiration." Gregory added, "The grassroots of the Democratic Party is more liberal. This nostalgia for the '90s is over. It's a different party."
On Wednesday, two network morning show hosts had the audacity to accuse a Republican presidential candidate of a lack of “depth.” In an interview with Florida Senator Marco Rubio, NBC Today co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie grilled the GOP contender on his recent debate performance and hyped it as “exposing a major flaw.”
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich confused George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday with a story that included the line “I’m a Democrat.” In an amusing moment, the Good Morning America co-host, himself a former Democratic operative, appeared puzzled, “You’re a Democrat?”
In perhaps his most vile attack on Texas Senator Ted Cruz to date, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Wednesday’s Morning Joe and declared the Republican presidential candidate to not be human: “...there’s a troll-like quality to Cruz. He operates below the level of human life.”
Yesterday, Politico reported that in a Wall Street speech, Hillary sounded more like "a Goldman Sachs managing director." Today, Bloomberg's Josh Green quoted a financial CEO who attended another Clinton speech as saying Hillary "lavished praise on Wall Street, said you guys are the pillar of our economy." Ruh-roh: how will the increasingly left-wing Dem electorate react to that? GOP strategist Steve Schmidt subsequently said that release of the speech transcripts could be "fatal" for Clinton's campaign.
Happy day after New Hampshire, Hillary! The MSM is not eager to sink Clinton. But the drip, drip, drip of these stories about what Hillary told people who paid her millions for her remarks threatens to swell into an irresistible torrent that will force Clinton to disclose. And when she does . . .
Time columnist Joe Klein followed up his fawning profile of Hillary Clinton in the magazine’s latest issue with an appearance on Charlie Rose’s PBS show Tuesday night where he condemned Donald Trump supporters as “a real threat to this country,” decried the lack of center in American politics and professed his admiration for Jeb Bush.
While touting the usage of cell phones in 21st century journalism on the Tuesday edition Fusion’s America, host and liberal Univision anchor Jorge Ramos played clips of his cell phone video reports from New Hampshire that included numerous encounters trolling Trump supporters who were merely standing outside polling places to support the billionaire.
