Latest from Kristine Marsh

The terrorist sympathizers at the New York Times got in hot water Monday, after readers rightly noted an op-ed published in Monday’s paper was written by a convicted murderer and terrorist, yet the article did not make that plain. Its author, Marwan Barghouti, former leader of the Tanzim wing of the Palestinian Fatah terrorist movement, used the space given to him by the Times to demonize Israel and draw sympathy for his anti-Israel agenda.


The liberal ladies at the View couldn’t contain their anger after Vice President Mike Pence made an unannounced visit to the South Korean border late Sunday night, to issue a stern warning to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, after weeks of the country conducting missile tests. Hosts Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg complained the loudest, with Hostin and Whoopi actually arguing that North Korea would respond to “diplomacy.”


Friday, magazine and website The Hollywood Reporter spoke to news anchors from all of the major networks in a discussion about what the role of the journalist was in today’s day and age. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was the most forceful of the group in arguing that it wasn’t the media’s role to share all sides of a story. In fact, he argued, it was the journalist’s job to report “the truth” and to silence viewpoints that didn’t “accept reality.”


After a week of mild coverage towards Trump’s military actions overseas, apparently the news media couldn’t take it anymore and started grasping at straws again for issues they could bash Trump over. Apparently CNN found their lucky rabbit foot Friday in the White House’s upcoming Easter Egg Roll, which allegedly won’t be as spectacular a event as it has been in years past under Obama. On Good Friday nonetheless, CNN decided to absurdly lecture Trump on how he failed in pulling off the White House’s “biggest social event of the year.”


CNN tweeted out an article Thursday morning fretting that kids will suffer undue harm if Trump’s EPA budget cut is passed. The long-winded article written by a children's advocacy group and hosted on CNN’s website, is full of hyperbole and dire warnings backed up by left-wing environmental “experts” that argue the EPA is a life-giving organization crucial to our childrens’ very existence. This flies in the face of actual government watchdog organization findings that reveal the EPA actually is one of the most wasteful government agencies.


American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent and newly minted CNN analyst April Ryan played the race card yet again in an interview on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon Tuesday night. Not only that, but she laughably denied that she was a Democrat or partisan in any way.

 

It’s not often you hear a left-leaning, former news network host sticking up for persecuted Christians, but that’s exactly what happened Monday night on Fox News Channel. Host Tucker Carlson brought on former CNN analyst and current editor of The Daily Mail Piers Morgan to get his take on why the media wasn’t giving the Palm Sunday attacks in Egypt on churches the attention they deserved.

 

The truth-tellers in the media have bypassed another opportunity to call out the Obama Administration for telling bold-faced lies. The New York Times broke a story Sunday revealing that the former administration “knew” Syria’s president Bashir-al-Assad had more chemical weapons hidden, despite telling the American people that they had destroyed all of Assad’s chemical weapons. Yet the networks have ignored these reports, not giving any airtime since the first story broke.


What a surprise, yet another news program using kids to advance their anti-Trump agenda. MSNBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin recently visited a Washington D.C. elementary school to get fifth graders’ opinions on President Trump, for his political roadshow on Showtime called The Circus. As you would expect, nearly every answer sounded like it came from a liberal activist, (albeit more polite.)


Friday morning on The View, the show started off with a fiery exchange over the U.S. missile strike in Syria last night. The panel was strictly divided, with conservative hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila fiercely disagreeing with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin that the missile strike was unconstitutional.


Friday morning following the U.S.’s overnight missile strike on Syria, the big three news networks seemed at a loss of exactly how they could criticize Trump for his actions. While NBC’s Matt Lauer and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos questioned the legality of bypassing Congress to authorize this strike, the networks largely stayed away from their usual overt attacks of Trump in their morning coverage. But NBC analyst Nicolle Wallace found a way to relate the Syria situation to Trump’s “Muslim ban,” wondering if Trump would change his mind on that as well.


Thursday morning on Good Morning America, the ABC News team were eager to bash Trump for his comment to the New York Times, stating he “thought” Susan Rice committed a crime in requesting the classified identities of Trump associates, while she was Obama’s National Security Advisor. Cecilia Vega centered her report on Trump’s claim instead of Rice’s actions, before George Stephanopoulos brought on analysts to continue criticizing Trump and defending Rice.

 

All three networks gave full reports to the Susan Rice scandal Wednesday morning, but spent the majority of the time deflecting blame from Rice to attack President Trump. Just like yesterday, ABC and NBC offered the most biased coverage, going out of their way to attack Trump for his wiretapping claims instead of focusing on Rice’s history of lying about the unmasking allegations.


Tuesday on The View, host Whoopi Goldberg was adamant that schools needed to provide free birth control to teenagers without parental consent, because they “don’t teach sex education at school.” Whoopi first made this strange allegation on a February 2 show, when she said that a school shouldn’t have to notify parents before putting condoms in the boys' and girls' bathrooms.

 

After ABC and NBC’s evening news broadcasts Monday night completely ignored a morning report revealing former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice requested classified intelligence of Trump associates,“dozens of times,” the networks finally did their job Tuesday morning, giving it the bare minimum of coverage. However, all three networks were quick to take sides and defend the Obama Administration’s actions.


The news media needs to follow the more “rational” and “reasonable” journalism of late night comedians, says Vox writer Carlos Maza, in a video posted Monday afternoon to the left-leaning website.  

 

During a segment talking about Russia, North Korea, and Trump’s relationship with these countries on The View Monday, host Joy Behar threw a temper tantrum, calling on the president to be impeached. After reading out-of-context quotes from Trump about using nukes, Behar couldn’t contain her rage any longer and demanded that Trump be “taken out of office,” to roaring applause from the liberal audience.


To Hollywood and the media, it’s more acceptable for a politician to cheat on their spouses and “sext” random women with their young children present, than it is to actually have a healthy, respectful marriage. Take the left’s treatment of Vice President Mike Pence, whose comments made in 2002 about boundaries in his marriage have come back this week to haunt him.


National politics is not a place known for high fashion. Yet that’s exactly where fashion magazines and feminist media have found their new style icon, and in an even more unlikely choice: Hillary Clinton.


The liberal ladies at The View invited former Obama senior campaign advisor David Axelrod on the show Thursday, apparently just to bash Trump for how horrible his first 100 days in office have been going. Axelrod, who now works as a political analyst for CNN, was warmly welcomed by the panel who gushed just a month ago that his former boss was their “favorite president.”
