CNN anchor Chris Cuomo defended the illegal leaks aimed at the Trump administration Tuesday morning on CNN’s New Day. He dismissed any possible damage done to national security by these unlawful acts. In an interview with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), he asked: “You know Marco Rubio was just on. He said I'll tell you what concerns me, it’s not just these reports but their source, the leaks, could be compromising national security, could make foreign leaders not want to work with us. What has come out that has compromised national security or chill a foreign leader?”
The liberal media was overjoyed Thursday, by the fact that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was recusing himself from his committee’s Russian influence investigation after he discussed evidence with the press. The media weren’t so keen on similar calls for the ranking Democrat on the Committee, Adam Schiff to do the same after he opened up to the press about what evidence he had seen. During ABC’s This Week, moderator George Stephanopoulos teed-up Schiff to combat those demands.
A tan sólo tres meses del comienzo del nuevo año, podríamos haber alcanzado el colmo del 2017. La cadena Univision, tras años de guerra abierta contra los republicanos, ahora se queja sin tapujos de su falta de acceso a los republicanos en el Congreso de los Estados Unidos.
Three months into the year, we may have reached peak 2017. Univision, after years of waging open war on Republicans, is now openly complaining about lack of access to Congressional Republicans. Most of the on-the-record whining comes from Edición Nocturna (Univision's late-night newscast) co-anchor Enrique Acevedo, who has this to say to Politico's Hadas Gold:
With the Republican controlled Senate hanging in the balance this election cycle, NBC turned up the heat against GOP candidates in tight races on Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News. One of the largest influences the Senate would have for the new president is the confirmation of Supreme Court justices. “There are many races currently polling within the margin of error,” announced Anchor Lester Holt as his colleague Hallie Jackson tried to tip the scales in favor of Democrats.
Univision's news division is nothing if not laughably predictable. As sure as the day is long and the Sun rises in the east, this election cycle was not going to pass without Univision News finding a way to reignite its war with U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
In an unusual turn of events, Chris Cuomo -- a liberal co-anchor of the Cable News Network's New Day morning program -- actually grilled Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, on Thursday regarding an unflattering email she sent regarding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The missive -- which was released as part of the WikiLeaks' “document dumps” -- read: Clinton's “inability to just do a national interview and communicate genuine feelings of remorse and regret is now I fear becoming a character problem."
During a guest appearance on Tuesday's edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Cokie Roberts -- a political commentator for National Public Radio and ABC News -- hammered people who still support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as “morally tainted” and an example of “textbook racism.”
Roberts said of the approximately 40 percent of American voters who polls say still support Trump: “I mean, there’s just no question about that. You can’t say ‘He’s a racist and what he says is textbook racism, but I support him because he’s the nominee of my party.’”
Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.
"Blow-by-blow coverage that gives disproportionate attention to one or two candidates. Some getting short shrift or gratuitously negative coverage. A press obsession with tactics and strategy that outpaces policy differences and leadership characteristics.”
“Sound familiar?” asked James Warren, chief media writer for the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, when describing a Harvard University study regarding the 2016 presidential primary campaigns.
CNN's At This Hour on Tuesday spotlighted Senator Marco Rubio's attack on the Washington Post on Twitter. An on-screen graphic hyped how "Rubio Launches Bizarre Tweetstorm Against Media." The Florida Republican mocked the "genius line" in the liberal newspaper that "claims that I'm a bit at sea in terms of [my] next step politically." Rubio added, "Ummmm, not really. I have only said like 10,000 times I will be a private citizen in January."
Como de costumbre.
