    Republican congressman Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has to be one of the best-informed, well-spoken, reasonable, fairly non-partisan Members of Congress. So when Royce appeared on today’s Morning Joe to discuss the latest atrocity in Syria, in which the Assad regime barrel-bombed an aid convoy, he was initially given respectful “Mr. Chairman” treatment, until . . . Royce had the audacity, responding to Andrea Mitchell question about Donald Trump’s “embrace of Vladimir Putin,” to refer to Hillary Clinton’s failed “Russian reset.” That set Mika Brzezinski off. After an “oh, wow” of incredulity, Mika demanded “can we...
  • Who Is NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Trying To Fool With This Remark?

    This network, I tell you. Yes, they have their moments of clarity; even a blond squirrel finds a nut. But to say that NBC News or MSNBC don’t have a political point of view is just ridiculous. We all know it. Well, anyone who isn’t a snowflake progressive knows this. Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Budget and Management, surely knows this, with him calling out some of the questions during Sunday’s Meet the Press broadcast, where he plainly hinted at NBC’s slant on the issue. It was something that guest host Andrea Mitchell was not keen about,...

    MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell had a sorry excuse for why she hasn’t covered a story about the Clinton Foundation receiving kickbacks from Russian officials. President Donald Trump accused the “Fake Media” of refusing to follow developments in the scandal. The Hill released a report on Tuesday that alleges the FBI buried evidence of Russian kickbacks to the Clinton Foundation as then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved a uranium deal with a state-owned Russian company. (RELATED: Networks Ignore Clinton Foundation Uranium Scandal) Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want...

    Yesterday, we noted the left’s freak-out over the news that the Justice Department will be investigating race-based discrimination in college and university admissions. The freak-out was on full display on Andrea Mitchell’s MSNBC show yesterday. You knew the fix was in from Mitchell’s choice as guests of two critics of the initiative: the Washington Post‘s Jonathan Capehart, and Janai Nelson of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. The most outrageous moments came when Mitchell said: “I don’t know if there are cases, even” of white students being disadvantaged by minority students taking available slots. View the video here.
  • Andrea Mitchell Rushes to Defend Obama’s Handling of North Korea

    06/16/2017 3:23:29 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | June 16, 2017 | Kyle Drennen
    After the network evening newscasts downplayed or ignored the father of freed North Korea hostage Otto Warmbier criticizing the Obama administration’s failure to bring his severely injured son home, on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Andrea Mitchell actually devoted a full report to the topic. However, her focus was on parroting excuses from former Obama officials. Mitchell began the segment at the top of the morning show’s 8 a.m. ET hour by lamenting: “The tragic return of college student Otto Warmbier, now released from North Korea, but in an unexplained comatose state, is now becoming a political issue...” The headline on...

    On her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell was worried that the clear Democratic affiliation and left-wing activism of the shooter who attacked members of Congress was going to be “swept up” in coverage of the violence and exploited by “partisans.” She acknowledged that alleged shooter James T. Hodgkinson “was a volunteer in [Bernie] Sanders’ campaign” and that “within his mental condition, there was, at least he felt, some sort of political motivation, as horrible as that is to even address.” Correspondent Garrett Haake – reporting from the scene of the attack in Alexandria, Virginia...

    Quotes from MSNBC Andrea Mitchell's Tom Brokaw Interview copied by Washington Free Bacon ^ | May 11, 2017 | Quotes from MSNBC Andrea Mitchell's Tom Brokaw Interview
    Veteran reporter Tom Brokaw said in an interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC that he has not seen anybody who thinks former FBI Director James Comey was doing a good job. Brokaw, who covered the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, suggested that much of the media response to Comey's Tuesday firing and Russia's possible connection to President Donald Trump's campaign team was "speculation." "One of the things that I learned during Watergate … is that we dealt with it every day on a factual basis. There was not a lot of speculation. Now, of course, the media landscape has changed...

    Yes, THAT Andrea Mitchell So, did Hillary just squander her final shot at offering the mainstream media a genuine apology? A quick glance at today’s news seems to suggest that may be the case. We’ve already heard from David Axelrod. Now that we have this clip from Andrea Mitchell, I’m starting to think they’ve shifted gears from “tired of Hillary’s garbage” to “completely fed up with her whole shtick.”

    Concerning President Trump calling her out as a Clinton hack following the Susan Rice interview, Glasser lobbed this softball: “Anybody who knows you had to laugh. You’re usually called the aggressive reporter asking the pesky question. What did you make of this week’s back and forth?” Mitchell responded by stating how she “was a little stunned” by the factually true label, pathetically claiming “that isn’t my reputation
  • These Are the Questions Susan Rice Needs to Answer

    04/07/2017 7:35:28 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | April 7, 2017 | David Harsanyi
    The House Intelligence Committee reportedly wants former national security adviser Susan Rice to testify in the probe of alleged Russian election interference, which now includes evidence that Obama officials may have improperly used intelligence gathered on President Trump's transition team. We've been incessantly assured there's nothing to this story. Perhaps. This week, though, Rice felt the need to seek out a friendly face in NBC's Andrea Mitchell -- although there were plenty to choose from -- to tell us that she never improperly unmasked any Trump transition officials whose conversations were caught on surveillance. Now, there are a number of...
  • Are You Kidding? MSNBC Blames Nuclear Option on Lack of Trump ‘Leadership’

    The partisan journalists at MSNBC proved they have no problem flip flopping when it comes to filibustering and the nuclear option. As the Republicans were voting to change the Senate rules, Thursday, and confirm Neil Gorsuch, MSNBC blamed Donald Trump. Andrea Mitchell lectured, “This is another history-making moment, which another White House might have been able to avoid, perhaps with better leadership.”  Here are a few examples: “I agree with you about this being an affirmative win for democracy. If that is the case, why do we still have the filibuster for legislation?” — Host Chris Hayes on MSNBC’s All...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice addressed reports she was responsible for the unmasking of names of Trump associates after the election during the transition period. Rice said unmaking names in intelligence reports she received is standard procedure insisting, “I leaked nothing to nobody,” adding there is “no equivalence” between unmasking and leaking.

    Rick Santelli, the CNBC analyst whose glorious rant led to the creation of the Tea Party movement, created another memorable TV moment today. On Meet the Press, reacting to reports that the Russians were happy on Election Night because Trump won, Santelli said to Andre Mitchell: “on Election Night, I never saw you so unhappy. You pick sides. Everybody picks sides.” An indignant Mitchell, protecting her [illusory] reputation for objectivity, shot back: “That’s not true, Rick. That’s just not true.” Sure, Andrea.

    Thursday on MSNBC, while reporting on a phone-in White House background briefing with officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department about President Barack Obama’s newly announced sanctions on Russia for hacking during the 2016 American presidential election, NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said the Obama administration is taking steps to “box in” President-elect Donald Trump so the sanctions are not easily reversible.

    In a statement following the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, President Obama spoke of "the countless ways in which (Castro) altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation." That's an understatement as the thousands who have risked their lives over the years to escape from Cuba have testified. The president added: "History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him." Why wait on history? We can judge him now. For six decades the left has lauded Castro as a secular savior, seeing only what they...

She continued to report on the historic moment but let her emotions go and appeared shocked before ending her comments. “But, good lord, that is an image a lot of people did not expect to see,” Mitchell said.
