  • MSNBC Pushes Narrative That Police May Have Planted Gun On Keith Lamont Scott

    Canada Free Press ^ | 09/25/16 | Jeffrey A. Friedbergy
    “That ain’t no cop’s gun, Frank!” —DIRTY HARRY 2: MAGNUM FORCE, 1973. Does anybody really think the police are so stupid they would toss “a throw down, cold piece,” a planted gun, into a crime scene, knowing they are under video surveillance from multiple sources? And that the police never heard about pocket-lint being caught in a throw-down, “cold piece,” thereby ultimately incriminating the thrower?

    On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, conservative Latino Alfonso Aguilar cited Hillary Clinton’s praise of the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. Hillary has said that she “admire[s] Margaret Sanger enormously.” Reid responded by saying Sanger was not a legitimate issue because she is a “dead person.” Even worse, when Aguilar tried to make that point that a majority of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood are on minority women, Reid shut Aguilar down, calling his statement “incredibly offensive. I think that smear of Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we’re not going to continue with that line of...

    Among the more intriguing results from Tuesday’s primary contests, the crowded race to fill the heavily-Democratic Eighth Congressional District in Maryland featured none other than the wife of Hardball host Chris Matthews whose candidacy included accusations that the couple leveraged their coziness with the D.C. and Hollywood elite for campaign donations. Unfortunately, MSNBC made no mention of this race during their live results coverage when polls closed at 8:00 p.m. Eastern until 1:00 a.m. Eastern and along with the MSNBC personality being absent from the coverage due the the campaign but, most importantly, that Kathleen Matthews finished in third.

The disgraced ex-Nightly News anchor on Monday closed out a segment on Castro by declaring liberal Washington Post writer Eugene Robinson a “Pulitzer Prize-winning communist.”  Williams tried to dig himself out of the hole, retreating, “Communist. Wow! Columnist....I think I have that on the mind. You are not, in fact, a communist. You are a friend of ours and a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with the Washington Post.” Brian Williams: Eugene Robinson Is a ‘Pulitzer Prize-Winning Communist’ The slip came after Robinson was discussing Cuba’s “dangerous path for survival” as it attempts reforms....

    Just before the new year, her executive producer told her he’d gotten word that the show was going to run the full length of its contract, through October. Then, starting the second week of January, the show’s typical branding disappeared from the broadcasts, and no one at Melissa Harris-Perry knew why. There was no soundtrack, no Melissa Harris-Perry banners at the top or bottom of the screen, no color scheme on the graphics. At first, they thought it had something to do with the presidential primaries. Then, the show’s title went missing from the network’s internal database—there was just a...

The National Association of Black Journalists expressed concerns about MSNBC's record in the wake of the noisy exit of weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry. The network said Thursday that it is proud of its diversity effort and noted that people of all ethnicities have seen their roles reduced or eliminated as part of a transition to more breaking news coverage.

    After tape rolled of Black Lives Matter demonstrators repeatedly chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," you might have thought a BLM leader would either apologize, or at least seek to miminize the incident as the excesses of an irresponsible and unrepresenative few. But no. On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, after just such video was played, BLM leader Monica Dennis issued not one word of apology. To the contrary, Dennis said "there is no need to apologize" for what the BLM movement is "putting forth," and touted the group's intention "to resist" the police. The segment began with...

    In the wake of the decision by MSNBC to drop three of its most incendiary liberal programs, former hosts Ed Schultz of The Ed Show and Alex Wagner of Now with Alex Wagner exited with about as much class as you'd expect. Schultz apparently threw a tantrum and refused to appear on his last show.  In his place, Michael Eric Dyson gave what Mediaite calls an "understated" farewell. First and perhaps most importantly, Ed Schultz wasn’t even present to give his final MSNBC farewell — due to “pre-existing scheduling conflicts,” MSNBC told us. Instead Michael Eric Dyson guest-hosted the full hour and saved...

On Thursday, the media news site Mediaite reported that MSNBC, under new leadership by NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, is canceling at least three of its shows. Among them, the talk show "The Cycle," where Toure Neblett, once a flame-throwing commentator, particularly on racial issues, resides as a co-host.

They were killed, and Geller has been pushing back against any suggestion that the provocative nature of her group brought about those attacks. Chris Matthews tackled that argument on his MSNBC show tonight, bringing up what Geller’s group did and asking, “Does that in some way cause these events––well, not the word ‘causing’––how about provoking, how about taunting, how about daring?...

    On Monday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough suggested that having a literal interpretation of the Bible could lead Christians to violence in a similar manner as radical Islam. Oddly enough, Scarborough hoped to avoid being "torn to shreds online" by equating the two, but made the comparison anyway. The morning's panel centered on the violence of ISIS and its undeniable ties to the tenets of Islam, but Scarborough felt compelled to find a link between Islam and Christianity. He said: “A very crude way to put it is, this would be the ultra fundamentalist Christians who believe every single...

But as Newsbusters and our parent MRC has carefully documented, Williams has been anything but a "straight" reporter of the news.

    On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Sarah Palin responded to the outrageous statements that MSNBC's Martin Bashir had made earlier this month during his program, during which he said that someone should "p*ss" and "s***" on Palin's face. Palin said:   Everybody in life takes shots. You have a decision to make when you take a shot. Are you going to become bitter or better? In a case like this, you  know, I don't have to accept his words - his vile, evil comments - so they don't have to affect me. I move on and I charge forth. ...

    It's no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her. And now she's doing something about it. The former Alaska governor and Fox News contributor was scheduled to sit down with Matt Lauer for a Christmas season interview. That's now toast.

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough is waking up to the fact that despite all the hype that accompanied President Barack Obama when he made his 2008 presidential run, he wasn’t ready for primetime. “Barack Obama has proven over the past five years that he wasn’t ready to be president of the United States,” Scarborough said on his show Tuesday, according to Newsmax. “And he proves it still today.” Scarborough said Obama “came out of nowhere” as a freshman senator, and “a couple years later, people elected him president of the United States.” Obama served less than a decade in...

    President Barack Obama will join members of the Congressional Black Caucus and other political heavyweights at the group’s annual Phoenix Awards Dinner during its legislative conference in Washington, DC on Saturday. Obama, the dinner’s keynote speaker, made waves during the same event in 2011 at the height of the CBC’s demands that Obama do more about the economic woes of African-Americans, when he told the group to “stop complaining” and get to work with him. But those were the bad old days of Obama’s first term, when black members of Congress echoed the frustration and disappointment of their constituents, in...

    Joe Scarborough and the Morning Joe panel expressed ubiquitous shock and outrage at George Zimmerman’s tour of a factory that made the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin, arguing that the action should cause those lionizing Zimmerman as a “hero” to think twice from now on. “There’s a certain faction of the American political system that has embraced George Zimmerman as a hero,” Scarborough said Monday morning. “I said from day one, during the trial, that it was going to be hard to convict this man. That doesn’t mean that many on the far right need to embrace this...

    You can’t swing a dead cat these days without hitting some prominent African-American claiming race relations have worsened since Barack Obama became president. Count MSNBC political and legal analyst Michelle Bernard among them, for on PBS’ McLaughlin Group Friday, she said, “The country has become more race conscious in terms of color and in terms of ethnicity since he was elected.” … Her sentiments seem to be shared by many African-Americans. The question is why? Is it because he, his entire administration, and his entire Party have injected race into virtually every discussion the nation has had in the past...

    Political talkers Sean Hannity and Joe Scarborough are trading blows over Trayvon Martin’s personal history. Last Friday on his radio show, Hannity asked if President Barack Obama compared himself to Trayvon Martin in his impromptu remarks on the George Zimmerman murder trial verdict because “he smoked pot” and “did a little blow.” On Monday morning, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took to his “Morning Joe” show to condemn Hannity for those remarks. “Really?” Scarborough said. “Is that the new standard? Would we like to go across college campuses in America and tell all white boys that if they have marijuana in their...
