During the Friday White House daily press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta berated EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on behalf of planet Earth: “Why, then, is the arctic shelf melting? Why are the sea levels rising? Why are the hottest temperatures in the last decade essentially the hottest temperatures that we've seen on record?"
One series of MSNBC hot takes came on Deadline: White House about the U.S. leaving the Paris climate deal from former Time editor and Kerry State Department official Richard Stengel, who admitted that the move “does depress me a little bit” and will mean that the U.S. is now longer the most powerful nation on earth but simply “Little America.”
Moments before President Trump announced on Thursday that he’d withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate deal, CNN host and serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria lost his mind, fretting that “this is the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world” and a sign of “breathtaking” “irresponsibility” by the President.
As previously demonstrated in this space, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC are relentless in attacking conservatives, Christians, and President Trump. Here’s the thing: It’s not just in their morning and evening newscasts, but also their primetime scripted programs.
Univision finally caved under pressure, joining Goya Foods, JetBlue, AT&T, Corona beer, the New York Yankees, and Coca-Cola in withdrawing their corporate sponsorship from the embattled National Puerto Rican Day Parade. But Univision being Univision, they can't even bring themselves to tell their viewers the truth about its parade pullout.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was in tip-top shape when it comes to spouting off wacky quotes, suggesting print journalists are “heroes,” John Brennan is a “patriot,” and admitting he had no clue who Ariana Grande was before Monday night.
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?”
By and large, the news media remained calm, collected, and hesitant to speculate on Tuesday night following the terrorist attack in Manchester, England at the Ariana Grande concert. That being said, the evening was not without notable comments, including some from MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes.
Univision ha sido consistente en la cobertura favorable que le ha brindado al convicto terrorista de la FALN Oscar López Rivera. Ahora que López Rivera ha salido en libertad conforme a los términos de la conmutación de su sentencia otorgada por el expresidente Barack Obama, la cadena se apresta a transmitir una entrevista exclusiva en la edición dominical de Al Punto, que podría describirse -en el término más generoso- como apología terrorista.
Univision has been consistently supportive in its coverage of convicted FALN terrorist Oscar López Rivera. Now that López Rivera has been released per the terms of the commutation of his sentence by former President Barack Obama, the network is set to air an exclusive interview on Sunday's edition of Al Punto that is best described, in the most generous possible terms, as terrorist apologia.
While speaking to reporters Friday morning at the U.S. Capitol, liberal Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings (Md.) gave his fellow lefties a pep talk and marching orders, telling them that “this is your moment” and “we cannot afford to lose” this fight for America (against President Trump and his supporters).
