    At a moment when even some on the left are criticizing the liberal media's wildly overheated coverage of the Mueller probe and "Russia-gate," one angry voice is out there, bitterly defending the MSM's excesses. His name is Joe Scarborough, and he opened today's Morning Joe with an epic rant in defense of the liberal media, and in denunciation of its critics. The essence of Scarborough's tirade was that the MSM had no choice but to cover the story the way that it did, given the "lies," admitted and alleged, by a variety of Trump associates regarding contacts with Russians. A...

    The arrest Monday of Michael Avenatti in an extortion case reportedly linked to fellow celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos sparked trouble for two men who recently had been fixtures on cable news, especially CNN. Avenatti, the pugnacious attorney best known for representing adult-film actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Trump, was arrested on charges that included trying to shake down Nike for as much as $25 million with a co-conspirator by threatening the company with bad publicity. The attorney, who also was accused of embezzling a client’s money to pay his own expenses, was charged with extortion and bank and...

    Former CIA chief John O. Brennan now says his months of attacks on President Trump may have been based on “bad information.”... “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Mr. Brennan told host Joe Scarborough. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.”

    Disgraced television lawyer Michael Avenatti ― who was arrested Monday for a series of alleged financial crimes ― made dozens of appearances on CNN and MSNBC in a 64-day period last year, turning the anti-Trump personality into a “resistance” folk hero, according to a report. U.S. prosecutors have charged Avenatti with extortion and bank and wire fraud. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles said Avenatti was arrested Monday in New York. Spokesman Ciaran McEvoy said the lawyer best known for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump faces federal charges in New York...

    Honestly, I was beginning to feel a smidge guilty about my glee and continual jubilation over the general  meltdown of the Democrats - along with their house organ, the MSM – over Mueller’s NO COLLUSION verdict.But that was before I tuned into Morning Joe to check out their more fair and balanced view of the situation. There was  Mika doing what she does best, looking morose, Joe doing what he does best, pretending to be a conservative, along with a team of impartial journalists consisting of Tom Brokaw, Chris Matthews, Mike Barnicle, Michael Beschloss, David Ignatius and some dour woman...

    Between claims of racism by the investigators and claims of a collusion “cover-up”, the crazy train was doing full speed out of the station. MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance was irate at Congressional Democrats, during the first half of AM Joy, because they weren’t pursuing impeachment, a.k.a “defending democracy”. “These guys are failing in their fundamental constitutional duty. Is it going to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to have to come and tweet something for them to get all worked up? Defend democracy,” he shouted.

    How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways.... Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    VIDEO Last year MSNBC host Chris Matthews confidently stated that the "HMS Trump" had hit the Robert Mueller iceberg and would probably sink. That attitude contrasted sharply with the meltdown that Matthews suffered on Friday when the Mueller report was finally released with no new indictments.

    The Democrats just can’t help themselves; they are in thrall to a base that can’t let go of a discredited conspiracy theory.  Their media allies have made too much money pushing the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin to steal the election.  And candidates with nothing to offer but pandering are beating the dead horse of conspiracy. Now that President Trump has succeeded in doing what Barack Obama claimed required a “magic wand” – reviving manufacturing employment and raising wages for the lower end of the income distribution -- the entire party has nothing to offer...

    Watch in slow motion as Democrats, goaded by the media, conspire to re-elect President Trump: Voters care about the economy and making education and health care affordable. And so Democrats are talking about … abolishing the Electoral College? Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren started the latest distraction at a CNN town hall on Monday. “Get rid of the Electoral College,” she said, neglecting to mention that this has zero chance of occurring in the foreseeable future. The media took it from there. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Garrett Haake pressed former representative Beto O’Rourke: “Getting rid of the Electoral College: Is that an...
  • WATCH: Joy Reid Comes To A Real Stupid Conclusion About The Mueller Report

    Source: MSNBC Although the contents of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report have not been released, Lefties, including MSNBC's Joy Reid, are convinced the Department of Justice is "covering up" for President Donald Trump. They have come to this conclusion because Mueller is not indicting anyone else, including Trump. The reason Reid believes a cover-up is taking place? Because the Justice Department ran the investigation. “The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department which Donald Trump essentially controls and that he got rid of the problem, Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was...

    Keep hope alive! Okay, yeah, the Mueller investigation looks like a bust, and won't produce any more indictments. But hey: there are still lots of other investigations out there! The dream continues! That was the theme of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Check out the mashup we've created, and you'll soon get the idea. From congressional investigations, to the Southern District of New York, it's investigations a go-go! The number of pending investigations was variously given as 16, 17, and even [facetiously, we presume] 47, according to David Korn! Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    Perhaps no single reaction Friday night to the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation rivaled that of MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, who was apoplectic, inconsolable, and irate at the notion the Mueller team will not offer any further indictments in hopes of criminal charges concerning Russian collusion. And even his most adored guests couldn’t avoid his scorn. Somewhere along the way, it never occurred to MSNBC that maybe a call should have been placed to Barack Obama to help calm Matthews down. Maybe that would have helped. It was clear that Matthews was having a hard time when...

    During Friday’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were aghast at Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler dismissing climate change fearmongering in a recent interview with CBS News. The hosts denounced his comments and even brought on former Obama administration EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to blast him. “The Trump administration has managed to downplay the impact of climate change again. Andrew Wheeler, the new EPA administrator, insisted the effects of manmade global warming are not here yet,” Ruhle complained as she teed up a clip of Wheeler talking to CBS correspondent Major Garrett in an...

    'Morning Joe' co-host Mika Brzezinski told husband Joe Scarborough a number of Republicans have "reached out" to her to say they are going to support Democratic Mayor Pete Buttigieg for president. Jon Meacham said a general election between Trump and Buttigieg would be like Archie Bunker facing off against Aaron Sorkin. From Thursday's broadcast of 'Morning Joe,' via Newsbusters: JOE SCARBOROUGH: Mika, yesterday something happened here that was pretty, pretty interesting. We had Mayor Pete on. MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Oh, my gosh! That was quite an event.
