CNN Frets Over One Cop’s Acquittal After Ignoring Tough Sentence on Another

MSNBC’s Clemons Uses Hitler Quote to Smear Trump, Netanyahu

<p>Appearing as a guest on Thursday's <em>MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle</em>, <em>The Atlantic</em> editor-at-large and MSNBC contributor Steve Clemons actually made a veiled Adolf Hitler reference to attack Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as President Donald Trump over the U.S. relocating its embassy to Jerusalem.</p> <p> </p>

<p>On Thursday's <em>New Day</em>, CNN global affairs analyst David Aaron Miller reacted negatively to President Donald Trump's plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and, while reacting to reports of violent protests by Palestinian Arabs, hyperbolically likened Trump's decision to hitting Arabs on the head with a hammer.</p>

WashPost’s Rubin Complains Media Were Not Tough Enough on Trump

<p>On Sunday's <em>AM Joy</em> on MSNBC, as host Joy Reid held a discussion which tried to tie accusations of sexual misbehavior against big media figures like NBC's Matt Lauer with the dominant media allegedly being biased against Hillary Clinton, <em>Washington Post</em> columnist Jennifer Rubin claimed that the media were not tough enough on Donald Trump, and suggested they could have done more to throw the election to Clinton.</p> <p> </p>

CBS Evening News Ignores Jury Acquitting Illegal Immigrant in Kate Steinle Killing

<p>On Friday, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> conspicuously did not make time to inform its viewers of the outcome of the trial of an illegal immigrant charged in the killing of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle. Although all three broadcast morning newscasts had highlighted the failure to get a murder conviction in the case, on the evening shows, CBS omitted the story while ABC's <em>World News Tonight</em> delivered a full report, and the <em>NBC Nightly News</em> gave viewers a 33-second brief.</p>

On MSNBC, Advisor for Clinton Defender MoveOn.org Calls Trump ‘Sexual Predator’

<p>On Sunday's <em>AM Joy</em>, there was another case of liberal projection as MoveOn.org senior advisor and frequent MSNBC guest Karine Jean-Pierre complained that "We have a sexual predator as the President of the United States who lies constantly." This in spite of the fact that the group she works for was founded in 1998 primarily for the purpose of defending President Bill Clinton from impeachment over his sexual misbehavior.</p>

MSNBC Guest: Republicans Are ‘Domestic Terror Group,’ Should Be ‘Locked Up’

<p>On Saturday's <em>AM Joy</em>, the MSNBC show at one point looked like a caricature of itself as frequent guest Fernand Armandi actually made the incendiary claim that the Republican party is a "domestic terror group," and then asserted that voters should not only vote them out, but "consider possibly afterwards locking them up." The Democratic pollster -- known for making wildly over the top statements on the show -- made his hyperbolic comments about locking up Republicans not in response to any sort of charges of legal wrongdoing, but instead in response to simply having a policy disagreement about how to handle the CHIP program.</p>

On MSNBC, WashPost’s Rubin: ‘Special Place in Hell’ for Kellyanne Conway

<p>On Saturday's <em>AM Joy</em>, <em>Washington Post</em> columnist and frequent MSNBC guest Jennifer Rubin was near breaking her own record for aiming vitriol at Republicans as she declared that "there is a special place in hell" for Kellyanne Conway because the White House advisor recently advocated voting for Roy Moore in spite of sexual molestation accusations against the Alabama Republican.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Fox & Friends Gives More Time to Death of Border Agent Than CNN’s New Day

<p>In the last couple of mornings, FNC's <em>Fox and Friends</em> has not surprisingly been spending substantially more time than CNN's <em>New Day</em> show discussing the death of a border patrol agent, Rogelio Martinez, and serious injury of his partner on the border in Southwest Texas.</p>

CNN Ignores Manhunt for Pa. Cop Killer, TV One Finally Notices Baltimore Killing

<p>After conspicuously giving scant notice to the murder of a Baltimore police officer last week while ABC, CBS, NBC and FNC provided more attention, CNN has only gotten worse as it has so far ignored a second high-profile cop killing -- this time near Pittsburgh -- which is getting substantial attention on news shows elsewhere. Additionally, TV One's <em>News One Now</em> program finally took notice of the Baltimore killing on Monday after ignoring it last week, although the show did not mention the cop killing in Pennsylvania.</p>

On MSNBC, WashPost’s Jen Rubin Hits Dems from Left for ‘Harping on’ Clinton Sex Scandals

<p>On Sunday's <em>AM Joy</em> on MSNBC, it was another case of liberals speaking of former Bill Clinton's sex scandals as if consensual adulterous sex with Monica Lewinsky were the worst thing he was accused of as the panel discussed recent scandals from Roy Moore and Al Franken to Donald Trump. And for her part, pretend conservative Jennifer Rubin actually hit Democrats from the left as she complained that "Democrats keep harping on Bill Clinton," presumably referring to a recent willingness of some liberals to throw Bill Clinton under the bus to give an appearance of consistency in going after current politicians like Republicans Roy Moore and Donald Trump.</p>

CNN’s ‘New Day’ Only Gives 1 Min to Murdered Cop, Spends 3 Min on Corrupt Cop

<p>Since word broke early Thursday morning that a black police officer in Baltimore was shot in the head and then died, CNN has conspicuously buried the story, in contrast with the liberal news network's history of giving attention to black suspects who are killed or roughed up by police officers. CNN's most prominent morning show, <em>New Day</em>, which runs between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. ET, has only run two briefs just barely totaling a minute so far. But on Saturday morning, <em>New Day Saturday</em> ran a full three-minute report on a corrupt police officer in Chicago who is causing the city to have to consider releasing some prisoners whom he might have framed.</p>

CNN, News One Now Ignore Black Police Officer Murdered in Baltimore

<p>After a black police officer was murdered in Baltimore yesterday while approaching a criminal suspect, the ABC, CBS, and NBC evening newscasts all informed their viewers of the tragic event, with the <em>NBC Nightly News</em> even running a full report of nearly two minutes. This morning, <em>CBS This Morning</em> and FNC's <em>Fox and Friends</em> also ran briefs on Officer Sean Suiter's death.</p>

CNN’s Cuomo Gloats Over Sessions Hesitance to Investigate Clinton

<p>On Wednesday's <em>New Day</em>, CNN's Chris Cuomo gloated over congressional Republicans apparently suffering a setback in their push for an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a way that it is unlikely that the CNN host would ever do if Democrats experienced a similar setback.</p> <p> </p>

MSNBC Guests See GOP ‘Policy Pedophilia,’ ‘Last Days of Hitler’s Bunker’

<p>On Saturday's <em>AM Joy</em> on MSNBC, during a discussion of Christian conservatives who have defended Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore from accusations of sexual behavior with a 14-year-old, recurring liberal MSNBC guests Bishop William Barber and liberal author Frank Schaeffer both engaged in hyperbolic rants against white Christian conservatives. After Barber tried to link "white evangelicalism" to "white supremacy," and accused Christian conservatives of engaging in "policy pedophilia" by not doing enough to help poor children, Schaeffer likened white Christians to Adolf Hitler in the last few days of his life in his bunker, as Schaeffer ended up deriding himself as a "token old white fart" who gets to take part in the day's discussion at a racially diverse table.</p>

<p>On Thursday afternoon, news broke that  Republican Senator Rand Paul's office had disputed claims aired in the media that the Kentucky Senator had been in an ongoing dispute with his neighbor, Rene Boucher, before being tackled in his yard about a week ago, calling the accounts "fake news," and claiming that the two had not even spoken to each other in many years. But ABC's <em>World News Tonight</em> and <em>Good Morning America</em> both ignored Senator Paul's complaints as they continued to air stories updating viewers on the situation. The <em>NBC Nightly News</em> more directly gave attention to Senator Paul's side of the story as the <em>CBS Evening News</em> and <em>CBS This Morning</em> quoted a lesser portion of the Kentucky Senator's statement.</p>

MSNBC Hosts Hit with ‘Irony’ After Gloating Over ‘Virginia’s Chief Homophobe’ Losing

<p>On Wednesday morning, MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi not only gloated over the defeat of Republican Delegate Bob Marshall by transgender Democratic candidate Danica Roem, but Ruhle even declared that, when Democratic candidate Chris Hurst unseated another Republican incumbent who had been supported by the NRA, it was a "win for America."</p> <p> </p>

CNN’s Camerota: ‘Absurd’ for Trump to Repeat ‘Tired NRA Talking Point’

NBC’s Mohyeldin Makes Bogus Claims of Racial Double Standard on ‘Terrorism’

<p>On Sunday and early Monday after word broke of the church shootings in Sutherland Springs, Texas, NBC correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin took to Twitter and sounded like a liberal activist as he tweeted out several comments suggesting that U.S. government agencies discriminate against Muslims in applying the word "terrorism" to so many acts of mass violence by Muslims, but not so much with white non-Muslim men.</p>

Dowd Dismisses DNC Clinton Deal, Todd Sees ‘Grenade’ for Dems

<p>As the morning broadcast network newscasts on Friday and Saturday gave attention to former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile's charge that the DNC was rigged to favor Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, there was a striking contrast in the way ABC's Matthew Dowd dismissed the story on Saturday whereas NBC's Chuck Todd on Friday described the revelation as a "grenade" for Democrats.

The frequent MSNBC guest brought up the KKK twice in about one minute of commentary, and ended up deriding Breitbart News as "Ku Klux Klan wannabes."</p> <p> </p>

PBS’s Smiley and Guest Muse Over ‘Self-Loathing’ Women Voting for Trump

<p>On Thursday's <em>New Day</em>, CNN hosts and commentators devoted a substantial portion of the show to fretting over President Donald Trump and Republicans having a double standard in not wanting to pass new gun laws after shootings, but being eager to pass new immigration restrictions after terrorism by Muslim radicals who trace back to other countries.</p> <p> </p>

PBS Guest Likens Conservatives to Osama bin Laden on Immigration

<p>On Friday's <em>Tavis Smiley</em> show, on display for PBS viewers was the latest in a parade of mostly left-wing guests getting to promote their liberal views as author Sasha Polakow-Suransky of the Open Society Foundations promoted his book -- <em>Go Back Where You Came From</em> -- that was critical of right-wing political movements in Europe and in the U.S. reacting against too much immigration. At one point in the interview, he went into hyperbole as he suggested that right-wing politicians are just a step away from being like Osama bin Laden as he pointed out that an outright bin Laden would not be able to get elected.</p>

MSNBC Guest: ‘Virtually All Racists Belong to the Republican Party’

<p>On Friday's <em>Real Time</em> on HBO, far-left host Bill Maher lashed out at Fox News and wrongly claimed that it had ignored Republican Senator Jeff Flake's speech attacking President Donald Trump. Although panel member Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast did jump in to inform Maher that Flake's speech was covered live, both she and liberal CNN commentator Van Jones claimed that "they didn't talk about it" afterwards.
