  • Andrea Mitchell Tees Up Dem to Totally Twist Trump Jr.’s ‘Skittles’

    09/20/2016 1:56:26 PM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 49 replies
    Andrea Mitchell has her unmentionables in major undulations over the fact that Donald Trump, Jr. posted a tweet analogizing terrorists hiding among bona fide refugees to a few poisonous Skittles in an otherwise okay bowl. And so on her MSNBC show today, Mitchell teed up Dem Rep. Adam Schiff to take a big swing at the Trump campaign. Schiff was only too happy to oblige, piously denouncing Trump, Jr., whom he described as a “rotten apple” falling not far from the tree. Schiff accused Trump, Jr. of saying “essentially, children who are fleeing the war and violence are like poison...

    'I love you Andrea, you’re indefatigable -- You’re my kind of Hillary Clinton heaped loving praise upon one of her chief apologists Andrea Mitchell during an awkward press conference Thursday morning. “I love you Andrea, you’re indefatigable. You’re my kind of woman.” Indeed, the NBC reporter has been untiring in her support of — and making excuses for — Clinton. On Tuesday, Mitchell gushed over "Hillary 2.0," lauding her "new habit of talking to reporters." The previous day, Mitchell was able to squeeze in one of her hard-hitting question to this new an improved Hillary. On Labor Day Monday following...
  • EXCLUSIVE: NBC Adds ‘Editor’s Note’ to Stealth-Edited Andrea Mitchell Report

    08/03/2016 7:34:44 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 32 replies
    NBC News has added an “editor’s note” to its report in which Andrea Mitchell called Juanita Broaddrick rape claims “discredited,” after revelations that the network deleted that word from its video. The Washington Free Beacon reported Tuesday that NBC News had stealth-edited Mitchell’s segment in May to remove the line where Mitchell said Broaddrick’s claim that Bill Clinton raped her had been “discredited.” On Tuesday, the NBC News website made no mention that the video had been altered. “Donald Trump is getting some heat from Hillary Clinton’s campaign after using the term ‘rape’ while talking about a long-denied allegation of...

    In a breaking story posted late Tuesday afternoon by our friends at the Washington Free Beacon, staff writer and former CNS News staff writer Elizabeth Harrington revealed that NBC News has stealth edited a May 19 video of Clinton campaign correspondent Andrea Mitchell on Today denouncing Juanita Broaddrick’s sexual allegations against Bill Clinton as “a discredited and long-denied accusation” to merely being a “long-denied accusation.” Mitchell’s original phrasing was flagged the day that it aired live on NBC by the MRC’s Kyle Drennen and he chronicled the network’s history concerning Broaddrick and Clinton. Since Harrington published her story at 4:48...

    Following the receipt of a retraction demand, NBC News has quietly edited the Internet edition of a segment that aired on the highly-rated “Today Show” in which anchor Andrea Mitchell claimed Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusation against Bill Clinton had been “discredited.” After receiving the legal letter, penned by Broaddrick’s attorney and son, Kevin L. Hickey, NBC removed the word “discredited” from the network’s Internet version of Mitchell’s video report, Broaddrick and Hickey told this reporter. However, NBC did not make any indication of the edit in the video or on the webpage that hosts it. Nor did NBC fulfill Broaddrick’s...

    Then there’s the troubling matter of EmailGate, the long-running scandal that this column has covered in great detail. That Ms. Clinton and her senior staff misused email during her tenure as secretary of state has long been crystal-clear. Refusing to use government email for government work was a violation of policy, while Team Clinton’s routing of said emails through a private server, then putting classified information on it—including above top secret information from the Intelligence Community—looks like a violation of several federal laws. Early denials from the Clinton camp tried to make the entire matter go away, insisting there was...

Broaddrick came out publicly in 1999 with claims...

    Millions of American voters are concerned about the potential to have a serial philander as the “First Gentleman” should abortion activist Hillary Clinton become president. But the head of the nation’s biggest abortion business says it won’t be a problem. MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday asked Cecile Richards to comment on the problems Bill Clinton may pose for Hillary and comments from Donald Trump that Clinton enabled Bill Clinton to engage in more inappropriate behavior. Naturally, the abortion giant’s CEO quickly played the woman card. Later, Richards essentially said Bill Clinton’s philandering is not an issue — though voters will...

Sure, there’s some concern about her status as a throwback candidate, and there’s an occasional acknowledgment of her scandals, but the criticism is fleeting. She is the rightful heir to the presidency, and any concerns are trivialities - most of them are cooked up by Republicans, and they’re easily addressed. Under the surface, however, lurked Hillary’s “trust” numbers. Depending on which sycophant was talking, the idea that Hillary was untrustworthy was either A: Nonexistent, B: Overblown, or...

    On Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell actually fact-checked Hillary Clinton’s suspicious tale of trying to join the Marines in 1975: "Those comments are being mocked by Republicans today and they’re getting two Pinocchios from Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler....Why on earth would she go to a Marine recruiter in 1975?...It doesn't make sense." Her guest, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was so taken aback that the Florida congresswoman attacked Mitchell for asking questions: "With all due respect, Andrea, why on earth are we talking about this?" Mitchell hit back: "Because she brought it up in New Hampshire the...

    Half-baked Barbara By John McCaslin October 7, 2005 It's not easy being the master of ceremonies for a roast when half of the roasters don't show up. Ask political commentator Mark Shields, who found himself in that uncomfortable position Wednesday evening as the Spina Bifida Association attempted to put TV personality Barbara Walters in the "hot seat" at the Hyatt Regency Washington. "This is more like a bake-off," a visibly embarrassed Mrs. Walters said after the roasting, expressing disappointment that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and fellow roaster Sen. Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana were no-shows. As it...

    Who is taking more glee from the current Republican turmoil over the selection of the next Speaker: Democrats or the MSM—or do I repeat myself? Today's Morning Joe featured a clip from Andrea Mitchell's interview of Ben Carson in which she asked: "what does this just say about the Republican brand and the Republican party. Can it survive after this kind of chaos?" Wishful thinking, Andrea? View the video here.
  • Valerie Jarrett Throws Hillary Under the Bus on Email Scandal

    Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett threw Hillary Clinton under the bus Wednesday at the Washington Ideas Forum, where she told interviewer Andrea Mitchell that the White House gave Clinton guidance forbidding her from using private email. “Yes, there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said when asked if the White House sent guidance to Cabinet secretaries about not using private email. “Obviously we want to make sure that we preserve all government records, and so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email that it should...

    On Sept. 11, The New York Times demonstrated once again the media's peculiar sense of patriotism. The 9/11 attacks were not remembered at all on the front page. Instead, the top-right headline in capital letters read "DEMOCRATS HAND VICTORY TO OBAMA ON PACT WITH IRAN." The House of Representatives voted against it. The Senate voted against it. The American people are overwhelmingly against it. None of that mattered. Times reporter Jennifer Steinhauer relayed sugary words from Sen. Charles Schumer -- who, last we checked, opposed the Iran deal -- proclaiming "fair-minded Americans should acknowledge the president's strong achievements in combating...

    Hillary Clinton’s sudden reversal on whether or not she would apologize for using a private email server while Secretary of State seemed inexplicable; on Friday she refused to apologize in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, but by Tuesday was apologizing to ABC’s David Muir. But The New York Times reported Wednesday on the impetus for the change; Clinton watched a video of a focus group that reacted negatively to her email rhetoric.

    Profiles in Courage Media Edition, or just the realities of campaign coverage? NBC News broadcast a 15-minute interview by Andrea Mitchell of Hillary Clinton, who offered her usual denials on the e-mail scandal and refused to apologize for using a secret server to thwart legitimate oversight over her office. Almost as soon as the interview aired, more problems emerged for her narrative, including the fact that she was paying a State Department IT specialist off the books to maintain the server without ever disclosing that fact. Despite her denials, the CIA and the NGA both verified that two e-mails...
