Now, of course, the press will jump on President Trump for comparing himself to Lincoln . . . Trump spoke Sunday during a Fox news event at the Lincoln Memorial. He knows reporters are extremely biased against him, and so he’s trying to diminish the press by attacking it. But I also think he is genuinely mystified about why they are after him so relentlessly.
This is a braver move than it may seem. ABC’s Jonathan Karl is an excellent reporter who, you may remember, went toe to toe with Obama White House Press Secretary Tim Carney, but without the grandstanding and with a legitimate intent to hold him accountable. He was a rare example of a White House press corps participant willing to grill the Obama team, which the
CNN’s Jim Acosta may or may not think he is an intrepid reporter questioning power. But he is actually an advocate who is helping destroy journalism by injecting himself fully into his fights with President Trump. The White House should not have ended the daily press briefing. But people like Acosta sure gave them a reason to do so, and to attack the press as
Senior ABC Correspondent David Wright was caught on Hidden Camera by Project Veritas saying that he was a socialist and that his network neither holds President Trump to account nor gives him credit for what they do. Wright, who reports for ABC’s news programs like “World News Tonight,” “Good Morning America” and “Nightline,” has been suspended and will not report on politics when he returns.
This is what is felt, and sometimes said, throughout Washington. If you doubt it, then ask, where is the outrage in Washington? Can you imagine if Bernie’s voters were mocked in this manner? According to the Washington Examiner. CNN hosts Don Lemon was joined by New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali and GOP strategist Rick Wilson during his show Saturday night to discuss the recent feud
Aww, so mean. CNN spent several minutes in an emergency “roundtable” creating a safe space for Raju, commenting on how he is the most fair reporter of the 21st century, etc. Time was when a news organization never made itself part of the news, just ignoring criticism as a feature of the job. But now, the news is all about the reporters, who showboat and
More of the balanced journalism you can expect from the liberal media. According to the Washington Examiner: A Washington Post reporter shared a comparison of the crowd gathered for the funeral of top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and for President Trump’s inauguration. Missy Ryan, who covers the Pentagon and national security, retweeted the comparison on Monday. The original tweet had the caption: “Hard to resist not retweeting
And who do you think is responsible for the darkness? Like, not Obama or Pelosi. Of course, his Meet the Press colleagues mostly agreed, including Helene Cooper, a New York Times reporter who said we prioritized guns over kids. She and Todd are supposed to be unbiased. According to Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner: This week’s Liberal Media Scream features Meet the Press host Chuck Todd
Bloomberg is refusing to investigate either its owner, Michael Bloomberg, or the other Democratic candidates. But it will continue to go after President Trump and his campaign. So Trump banned them, at least from the campaign. Even some at Bloomberg must be in shock that they are being banned from investigating the Democratic candidates. “This all could have been avoided had someone just stood up
According to Becket Adams in the Washington Examiner: Certain members of the media need to get out more often. They are doing that thing again where they are all saying the exact same thing. The latest fad promoted by members of the commentariat involves alleging that Republicans and Trump supporters are members of a “cult.” Edgy stuff — almost as edgy as it was in 2016. “Increasingly, President
I read this story in the Washington Post this morning, and I’m not sure why it was high on the website and sounded like yet another abuse of power. Trump supposedly asked Attorney General Barr to hold a news conference to say that he hadn’t broken any laws during his call with Ukraine President Zelensky. Which appears to be true. Barr didn’t hold the news
