    On Monday night, MSNBC prime-time shows spent the vast majority of their time discussing President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. Of the 27 guests which appeared over the four-hour block from 8:00 p.m. to midnight ET, not a single conservative was given time to speak about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Among the guests were progressive activists brought on to discuss the significance of the nomination. Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, Cecile Richards, former CEO of Planned Parenthood, and Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, all got screen time. Each expressed deep...
  • MSNBC Freaks Out Over ‘Right-Wing,’ ‘Conservative’ Kavanaugh

    Seconds after it was revealed that Donald Trump had selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court choice, MSNBC on Monday night immediately freaked out and deemed him an extreme“right-wing” “conservative.” Liberal MSNBC host Chris Hayes anchored the conversation just prior to Trump’s live announcement. He fretted: “This is a guy who cut his teeth on the Starr report. He has moved in conservative, right-wing legal circles for the entirety of his career.” A few seconds later, Hayes again warned that Kavanaugh “spent his life in conservative, right-wing legal circles.” MSNBC brought on Jess McIntosh of the liberal ShareBlue organization....
  • The Once-respected NBC News is suffering from a losing streak

    The Hill ^ | 07/10/2018 | BY JEFF MCCALL,
    NBC News was for years the network juggernaut that raked in the ratings and the cash. It was also widely respected for its journalism standards. Now, the once-respected news organization is wobbling after months of self-inflicted blunders. The missteps include personnel disasters and questionable news judgments. These preventable gaffes suggest a news hierarchy at NBC that has lost its compass, operating as a misguided corporate bureaucracy and not as a journalistic service to the nation. NBC pioneered broadcast news in the late 1920s with radio news updates from the legendary Floyd Gibbons. The network was the first to venture into...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    A series of recent events has inspired some soul searching on the part of democrats who still have a brain. Among them, the call to abolish ICE Sen. Elizabeth Warren: The Massachusetts senator and liberal fixture said Saturday at a rally in Boston: "We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom by starting with replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality." Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.: Like Warren, she is a potential 2020 contender. Gillibrand decried ICE as a "deportation force" -- a reference to child separation at the border that Trump officials have criticizedas being inaccurately pinned on ICE. She told...

    MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski comment on President Trump mocking John McCain and George H.W. Bush to the delight of crowds at his rallies: JOE: Mika, we can talk about Donald Trump. We have. But, again, at what point is there decency in the crowd where people stop cheering when he mocks a man who has brain cancer and who is -- again, fighting for his life? A losing struggle for his life. Or George H.W. Bush. A man who fought in World War II. Was shot down by the Japanese, served America overseas as ambassador...
  • Joy Reid Blog Post Attacked Wolf Blitzer for Being Too Soft on Jews

    The National Review ^ | June 1, 2018 | Mairead McArdle
    In a post on her now-defunct blog, MSNBC anchor Joy Ann Reid attacked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for treating Jewish guests with too much understanding. Blitzer is a “former flak for the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC),” reads the post from July 16, 2006. “He doesn’t even try to hide his affinity for his Israeli guests, or his partisanship for their cause, while turning instantly to prosecutorial mode when questioning any guest who has the dumb luck to be an Arab or Muslim in King Blitzer’s court,” Reid continues. “It’s actually quite stunning how brazen Blitzer’s bias has become.” In...

    Ever since Maxine Waters encouraged her supporters to publicly harass Trump supporters, liberals have denounced civility and things just keep getting worse. Now, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC Contributor Jennifer Rubin announced that if Trump gets his way with the supreme court, it is time for civil war. “The people who brought Donald Trump and delivered him to the White House want this [the overturn of Roe], and I think they will not be disappointed. So then the question is, if they’re not able to withstand this onslaught, not able to hold back a justice that would reverse Roe, what...

    During a Wednesday MSNBC panel about who Trump will choose to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, Roberts warned that any conservative judge will severely limit access to abortion and even jail women who have miscarriages or still births. Roberts complained that “black women, primarily” were prosecuted for using drugs during their pregnancies and added, “prosecutors [are] already putting women in jail for still births, for miscarriages, and for botched abortions.” “It’s a very thin line between putting a woman in prison for a still birth or a miscarriage that she’s blamed for, for something she did during her pregnancy, and criminalizing...
  • Morning Joe: By Turning on Trump, Michael Cohen Would Become "Hero," Trump's "John Dean"

    In its everlasting quest to bring down President Trump, the MSM’s latest best hope is Michael Cohen. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Cohen said that he puts “my wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will. I put family and country first.” Trump foes are taking that to imply that, rather than being willing to take the proverbial bullet for Trump, Cohen is considering turning against the President. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking with Emily Jane Fox, biographer of the Trump children, suggested that Cohen could become Trump’s “John Dean,” the Nixon...

    Can you imagine the left’s reaction if a Republican attacked a Dem judicial nominee for being too Muslim? The cries of religious bigotry, and the citation of the Constitution’s prohibition of religious tests for office, would reverberate through the liberal/MSM world. But on MNSBC this evening, Zerlina Maxwell, SiriusXM’s head of Progressive Programming, didn’t hesitate to attack possible SCOTUS pick Amy Coney Barrett for being “very Catholic” and having gone “to Notre Dame.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Sunday she was surprised to see Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) criticize her for advocating to publicly confront Trump Cabinet officials, but noted that political leaders "will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership.” “You know, I was surprised at Chuck Schumer, you know reached into the other house to do that,” Waters said when asked by MSNBC host Joy Reid if she was surprised to see leaders in her own party criticizing her. “I’ve not quite seen that done before. But one of the things I recognize, being an...

By my count, Scarborough used “unhinged” 21 times during the opening segment to denounce House Republicans and President Trump.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    "This president is the subject of a criminal investigation," Booker said. "Here you have a president that's making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people." While Special Counsel Robert Mueller told Trump's lawyers in March he is under investigation, Trump is not considered a "criminal target," . . . Booker testified as a character witness on behalf of his colleague Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), when he was on trial for public corruption for accepting bribes from his long-time friend Dr. Salomon Melgen, in exchange for political favors.

    Liberals love gay rights. Unless they can use gays to smear Trump. The New York Times posted this cartoon today of Trump-Putin love affair. Because gay relationships are a joke.This is who Facebook uses for “real news”. Glenn Greenwald weighed in: The NYT publishes an animated film mocking Trump and Putin for being homosexual lovers, using one disgusting gay stereotype after the next to do it. I’m sure they’ll claim some LGBT person was involved. Homophobia for progressive messaging is still bigotry.

    Matthews seemed to suggest that Democrats should block the appointment of a conservative judge until after the midterms, citing Republicans blocking Merrick Garland when Obama was president. “The base will attack the leadership for this, if they allow it to happen, and they should,” Matthews said of Democrats. “This is a time for vengeance for what happened two years ago, and if they don’t reap the vengeance now with four and a half months to go before the election, they will not look very strong to their base, and I think they’ll be under attack.”

    MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt––who recently left the Republican party––decried the Supreme Court decision upholding President Trump‘s travel ban. Nicolle Wallace talked with her panel about the SCOTUS decision, looking back at how we got from the originally-proposed Muslim ban to here. She said, “I remember people in the intelligence community saying to me, ‘Who do you think we rely on the most in the countries that could represent the greatest geopolitical threats from us?'” Former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi said that today “we became a little bit less of that shining city on a hill” into a country...

    The recent public shaming of Trump administration officials in restaurants has triggered an internal debate among Democrats over how far they should go in confronting the president and his policies. The boisterous protests against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Trump advisor Stephen Miller as they dined in different Mexican restaurants, and the ejection of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders by the owner of a Virginia eatery, caused some Democrats to embrace the strategy as an effective way to rally supporters and hold officials responsible. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles), a frequent critic of the administration, gave a...
