February 26th, 2020 10:37 AM
Toward the end of her Tuesday show on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell decided to echo Bernie Sanders and praise the state of communist Cuba, that "there's a lot of great things to say" about communist rule.

February 26th, 2020 1:55 AM
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders.

Ahead of Their Debate, CBS Skips Sanders Doubling Down on Castro
February 25th, 2020 8:32 PM
Tuesday was the big night over on CBS where they would hold the final Democratic debate before the primaries South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states. And with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) occupying the frontrunner’s podium for the first time, one would think the host network would apply a little more scrutiny.

After Sen. Bernie Sanders doubled down on his past praise for aspects of the Communist regime of Cuba, Patricia Mazzei reported “Florida Democrats Try to Limit Harm From Sanders’s Castro Comments” in Tuesday’s New York Times.

Food Fight! 'View' Berates Behar for Defending Bernie's Castro Comment
February 25th, 2020 1:44 PM
The View co-host Joy Behar faced pushback from her liberal peers on Tuesday’s show, after she started defending Bernie Sanders comments praising Fidel Castro.

MSNBC’s Glaude Compares Cuba’s Communist Coup to American Revolution
February 25th, 2020 1:01 PM
In his desperation to defend 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders from criticism, on Tuesday, regular left-wing MSNBC pundit and Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude actually compared Fidel Castro’s violent Communist takeover of Cuba to the American Revolution. Glaude made the outrageous argument while trying to excuse the socialist Senator’s defense of Castro during a 60…
Media Loved Castro As Much As Bernie – Maybe More
February 24th, 2020 4:31 PM
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
‘Can’t Wait’ For Bernie Haters ‘To Die Out’: Celebs Feel The Bern
February 24th, 2020 3:04 PM
“Democratic socialist” and commie sympathizer Sen. Benie Sanders’ lead over the other Democratic 2020 nominees should terrify anyone who’s read a history book. Sadly, the enthusiasm shown for the Vermont Senator, especially in Hollywood, is evidence that many don’t know socialism leads to economic stagnation at best, and the horrors of the Soviet system, Maoist China…
Nets: 74 Seconds to Bernie’s Castro Love, 34 Minutes to Trump/Putin

On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes.

Chris Matthews GOES OFF About Evils of Bernie’s Beloved Socialism
February 8th, 2020 1:29 AM
During MSNBC’s Friday night post-debate coverage, Hardball host Chris Matthews behaved like a man possessed, hellbent on informing all about the deadly dangers posed by communism and socialism, how concerns during the Cold War were real, and Bernie Sanders might not be looking to just remake America into a socialist country a la Denmark.
Smithsonian's Shame: 'Extraordinary Life' of 'Poetic' Commie Guevara
October 26th, 2019 8:54 PM
Argentine-born Communist revolutionary and guerilla leader Che Guevara murdered and imprisoned thousands, supervised firing squads during revolutionary tribunals, founded forced labor camps, and dissolved free press in Cuba. Bizarrely, none of that made it into Tony Perrottet’s shallow, symbolic travelogue of Revolutionary Cuba that appears in the Smithsonian, the official journal of the…
FLASHBACK: Walters Cheers Cuba as ‘One of the Freest Nations on Earth’
October 12th, 2019 12:15 PM
One of the more distasteful habits of liberal journalists has always been the tendency to flatter and fawn over brutal dictators. Reporters, who are supposed to speak truth to power, often fail when it comes to charismatic communists. That’s exactly what happened when ABC's Barbara Walters interviewed Fidel Castro 17 years ago, Friday, on October 11, 2002.
