BIAS MEDIA, WHAT BIAS MEDIA?
As reported at MRC, the liberal bias media has been as unfair to newly elected President Donald Trump as any president in recent times. They refer it to as the honeymoon from hell. It is a far contrast from the MSM’s slobbering love affair hat they had with their hero, Barack Obama. How did that work out for America? Softball questions and defending a liberal, lying president has turned into the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. Don’t think that this is not lost on We the People.
As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party.
For example, President Trump’s push to invigorate the economy and bring back American jobs received a mere 18 minutes of coverage (less than one percent of all airtime devoted to the administration), while his moves to renegotiate various international trade deals resulted in less than 10 minutes of TV news airtime.
Eight years ago, in contrast, the broadcast networks rewarded new President Barack Obama with mainly positive spin, and spent hundreds of stories discussing the economic agenda of the incoming liberal administration.
For this study, MRC analysts reviewed all of ABC, CBS and NBC’s evening news coverage of Trump and his new administration from January 20 through April 9, including weekends. Coverage during those first 80 days was intense, as the networks churned out 869 stories about the new administration (737 full reports and 132 brief, anchor-read items), plus an additional 140 full reports focused on other topics but which also discussed the new administration.
THEY DON’T CALL IT THE DEMOCRAT-MEDIA COMPLEX FOR NOTHING …
As reported at The Washington Free Beacon, former Obama press secretary, Josh Earnest, was named an NBC News and MSNBC political analyst. What a surprise. The main stream media and their liberal agenda has been in bed with the Democrat party for years. However, maybe never so much and maybe has never carried the water so much and defended a president’s agenda, than Barack Obama. This should be an easy transition for Josh Earnest, as his role as Obama’s press secretary has pretty much groomed him to be a liberal media shill. As Twitchy opines, this is yet another move on the part of the MSM to try and make themselves look legit, by hiring a guy who’s sole job was to cover Obama’s backside. Way to go media!!!
This is the liberal bias that we can expect as NBC’s newest political analyst
Former President Barack Obama’s final press secretary, Josh Earnest, was named an NBC News and MSNBC political analyst on Monday morning.
Earnest, a Kansas City native, served as White House press secretary from 2014 to 2017.
Axios obtained an internal memo from NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin announcing the hire.
He joins a string of recent former White press secretaries who have joined network and cable news outlets after leaving government, the Hill noted.
Two of Obama’s former press secretaries, Jay Carney and Robert Gibbs, were hired by CNN and MSNBC, respectively, after leaving the White House.
Lying, Crooked Hillary Clinton Blasts Fake News Calling it an “Epidemic” that Congress Should Take Action Against
FUNNY HOW HILLARY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT FAKE NEWS WHEN THE MSM SAID THAT DONALD TRUMP COULD NOT WIN …
Hillary Clinton bemoaned the “epidemic” of fake news and called on Congress to take action against it. Of course Hillary, Democrats and her minions blame fake news for her colossal, electoral college landslide loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton and her people blame every other than themselves and a candidate that stood for nothing and could not connect to John Q. Public. Hillary lost two elections that she was supposed to win because she was a terrible candidate.
So let’s understand this, she wants the government to determine what is and what is not fake news? ARE YOU KIDDING? Be very careful what you ask for, especially when it goes against the U.S. Constitution and the 1st Amendment of Freedom of Speech. I rarely, if every agree with the opinions, beliefs and ideology of The Young Turks, but I do on this one. Is there fake news, of course there is. Did it decide the election? Not a chance. Oh, because the MSM never spread fake news and propaganda to boost Hillary Clinton. Now you get a good look what a Hillary Clinton presidency would have looked like. She wants government to go after the 1st Amendment. Not only NO, HELL NO!!!
Hillary Clinton on Thursday decried the spread of fake news online, calling it an “epidemic” that Congress should take action against.
“The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.
Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump.
The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.
Dick Cheney Says to CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We “Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”
WILL TRUMP MAKE THE MSM IRRELEVANT OR HAVE THEY ALREADY DONE THAT TO THEMSELVES?
Over the weekend, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta discussed the new era of foreign policy under President-elect Donald Trump with CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Reagan Library. The media seems to be worried about Donald Trump’s tweets. That is when Cheney provided the following comment as to why maybe the MSM is in such a huff over Trump’s tweets, do they feel that they will be made irrelevant and not needed anymore? Funny line. I bet the media never thought they would miss Dick Cheney.
Honestly, since it is pretty much obvious, especially after the last election cycle that journalism is dead, maybe it is the media that made their own-self irrelevant.
“I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.”
FMR. VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: One of the most important things [President-elect Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don’t make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that’s not a place for President Trump to start.
BARBARA STARR, CNN: But Secretary Cheney, Mr. Vice President, you are someone who has a long history of being very precise in your words, in your thinking and your analysis. I’m not aware of anytime you ever said anything very casually. [Laughter]
CHENEY: Oh, now, Barbara.
STARR: At least that I can’t recall. I heard that Air Force general that you fired. Um, that’s another story we’ll get to later.
So, c’mon, let’s hear it. What are you — what is your, you know, you hear this casual language. And when I say that don’t go out tweeting that I am anti-this or anti-that. The language of tweets is not necessarily as nuanced and contextual as U.S. foreign policy is. I think that is something that we can all agree on. So when you see this, seriously, what concerns does it cause you? If you were sitting with him and could give him some advice about all of this — about language, about meaning of words — what would you say? What would your advice be?
CHENEY: Well, I, first of all, am not sitting with him.
STARR: Would you if asked?
CHENEY: Would if I asked?
STARR: Would you?
CHENEY: Certainly, if the President of the United States asks for advice. I would have been happy to advise Barack Obama but he never asked me. [Laughter]
STARR: So, again, language and words. [Laughter]
STARR: You see, the man never says anything casual.
CHENEY: I think he needs to be careful but he’ll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he’s a great choice as Vice President. He’s going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration.
I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.
CNN Producer Caught On Hot Mic Joking About A Trump Plane Crash & Reporter Laughs (Update: CNN Apologizes to Trump)
I THINK IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT CNN IS A BIAS AND DISGUSTING MEDIA OUTLET …
CNN has been caught once again being bias against president-elect Donald Trump and this time it was hardly funny and a laughing matter. While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana, prior to President-elect Donald Trump arriving to give a speech to the Carrier workers regarding the deal he made that saved roughly a thousand jobs to remain in the United States rather than being sent to Mexico, the CNN news crew decided to joke around about a pretty gross and reprehensible topic. A CNN producer was caught on a hot mic saying,“If I do this, it means he’s landed, .. and That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding.” UNREAL.
Can you imagine the outrage from the MSM had some one from FOX News had said something like this regarding Obama? Hmm? Donald Trump is 100% correct to call out the bias and factually incorrect liberal media. This is yet another example of the media bias and double standard. As if a media individual had done this with a Democrat president, they would have been fired.
While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana yesterday, waiting for President-elect Donald Trump to arrive to give a speech regarding the deal that kept roughly a thousand jobs in the U.S., the crew decided to joke around about a pretty grisly topic.
In video obtained by FTVLive, correspondent Suzanne Malveaux was prepping for her live broadcast from Indianapolis. She can be seen discussing what she needs to say on air, what items to touch on, doing sound checks, asking for water, etc.
However, at one point, as they were getting close to going live, a producer can be heard off screen talking about signals she would give if Trump’s plan had landed. It then went south rather quickly.
“That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding,” the voice can be heard saying, while Malveaux’s eyes bugged out. She then tried to smile it off.
The video showed Malveaux — who joined the network in 2002 — reacting with a stunned face but laughing at the remark.
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” a CNN rep said in a statement, Business Insider reported.
“We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
Trump routinely lambastes the media in general but has also singled out some outlets for verbal abuse, including CNN.
