Mainstream media outlets CNN and MSNBC dedicated a scant 45 seconds to covering AntiFa-caused violence following the peaceful “Million MAGA March” in Washington, D.C. According to analysis from the Media Research Center’s Newsbusters the two outlets dedicated 17 minutes and 42 seconds of coverage to the violence that ensued after the pro-Trump march. Of the negligible sum, six minutes and nine seconds of coverage on the AntiFa-caused unrest was dedicated to blaming President Trump and his supporters while just 45 seconds placed the blame on the militant, far-left group. Newsbusters’ analysis continues, breaking down the time distribution between the two
MSNBC host Joy Reid insisted that Al Gore lost to George Bush in the 2000 election by 538 votes, confusing the margin with the total number of votes in the electoral college. The mainstream media host insisted on Twitter that the political polling site FiveThirtyEight exists “because 538 was the margin in FL when the Republican SCOTUS reversed the 2000 election during a recount.” She continues, using this faulty logic to dispel the chances of the election flipping in favor of President Trump. Here's the thing: the reason there's a thing called @FiveThirtyEight is because 538 was the margin in
Analysis of CNN and MSNBC programming reveals the mainstream media networks dedicated 94 minutes to Miles Taylor – the former Trump administration official who revealed himself as the author of an anonymous, scathing anti-Trump op-ed – while spending no time covering Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner who insists Joe Biden was heavily involved in his son’s Chinese business deals. The analysis from Newsbusters shows that the two networks gave a grand total of 94 minutes and 28 seconds, with CNN apportioning 50 minutes and 11 seconds to Taylor and MSNBC granting 26 minutes and 16 seconds to him.
Hollywood celebrities tend to go off the rails when discussing politics, but there was a recent interview that was exceptionally bad: Nicole Wallace’s exchange with Jeff Daniels on MSNBC. It’s obvious what’s happening here. The actor – worth around 50 million dollars – has a new show coming out where he plays Jim Comey. And very few people seem to care. So along comes Nicole Wallace and MSNBC to help prop up Daniels failing attempt to rescue his own career and that of former FBI director Jim Comey. At the end of the interview, Wallace asks Daniels about his thoughts
President Trump has hinted at the use of the Insurrection Act for a while. Now, in the wake of the murder of one of his supporters in Portland, it’s time to use it. The Act, originally signed into law by President Thomas Jefferson in 1807, provides President Trump with the ability to tackle the clear attempts at insurrection taking place in the United States today. In fact 12 U.S. Presidents have used it, from Jefferson himself to John F. Kennedy to George H.W. Bush during the Los Angeles riots. If Trump dithers or delays further, the Biden campaign’s latest attempt
MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews announced on Monday he will be stepping down after nearly 20 years with the network. Media outlets noted Matthews’s long career included his coverage of a number of presidents, as well as “watershed events like Sept. 11 2001 and the 2003 Iraq War.” The resignation follows recent controversies. The Hardball host found himself in hot water when he likened Bernie Sanders’s Nevada win to the Nazi occupation of France during the Second World War. Days later, a GQ article accused Matthews of routinely making inappropriate comments about women, and objectifying them in the workplace. The
The mainstream media spent the past two years alleging the President of the United States is a Russian sock puppet, a Manchurian candidate, and a traitor. They have accused Donald Trump of treason, called for his impeachment, and worked tirelessly to dispel the notion that he was entitled to any semblance of due process — and all of this based on accusations so obscenely ridiculous that one would think they came straight from a movie script. Maybe that’s why so many Hollywood celebrities bought into it. Here’s what we know at the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation: 1.)
