CBS Urges Oprah to Run Against President Donald Trump

JUST HOW DESPERATE IS THE LEFT?

From Newsbusters comes this pathetic beg from the liberal MSM for Oprah Winfrey to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Really, is that all the LEFT has? Wasn’t it just a little less than two short years ago that the LEFT and the MSM mocked Donald Trump for his run for president because he had no experience and was just a TV guy? They called him a clown and a joke. The LEFT said that no one with any expereince in politics should run for president. But of course it is different for Oprah. However, if she does decide to run she might have some explaining to do as to why she was so chummy with Harvey Weinstein.

Hmm, #MeToo, eh?

CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday urged her best friend Oprah Winfrey to run against Donald Trump in 2020. King even absurdly insisted she could stay on at CBS and cover the race “impartially.” The co-host, it turns out, has been lobbying her friend to run for months. On the show, King pleaded, “But I also think you have a unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”

King even cited the late poet Maya Angelou, pleading to Winfrey: “What do you think Maya would say? It’s one of these times I wish Maya was here. What do you think that she would say?”

After all this, King disputed the idea that a potential Winfrey run might compromise her as co-host of CBS This Morning:

GAYLE KING: Somebody told me you’d have to leave your job at CBS. I said, “Why do I have to leave my job at CBS?”

OPRAH WINFREY: I think you might.

KING: No, I don’t. I could be very impartial. I could be very impartial.

Podesta Squirms After CBS ‘Face the Nation’ Host Asks ‘How Did the Russians Know to Focus on Wisconsin But Hillary Didn’t?’ (VIDEO)

WATCH PODESTA SQUIRM WHEN ACTUALLY CONFRONTED WITH FACTS FROM THE MSM …

Yesterday on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’former Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta became visibly rattled after guest host Nancy Cordes questioned and pressed him with regards to the indictments against Russian nationals and the effect of their attempts to interfere in American elections. As Podesta tried to blame the Russians for Hillary losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump,  ‘Cordes asked, “But it does beg the question, how is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?” Hmm, good question.

Podesta stammered to answer the question as it is not often that the MSM ever asks a posing and tought follow up question. What it proves is the real reason why Hillary lost, she was a terrible candidate who ran a terrible campaign.

And Yet Another … Eight Women Accused Charlie Rose of Sexually Harassment (Update: Rose Suspended from CBS & PBS)

UBER LIB CHARLIE ROSE ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT …

Sorry Charlie, you have been accused of serial sexual harassment. From the WAPO comes the following, eight woman have accused longtime liberal TV host Charlie Rose of sexual harassment.  The women claim that Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas. SICK!!! Of the eight women, five of the women spoke on the condition of anonymity, three were on the record and two of the women the Post interviewed, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan and Megan Creydt, confirmed their accounts to NBC News.  This was a serial harassment that took place from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. Who doesn’t think that every news outlet Charlie Rose worked at did not know of his behavior and turned a blind eye? CBS addressed the suspension of Charlie Rose over sexual harassment allegations and claims, ‘We Are All Rocked By This.’ Sorry is I have to cry BS here. They are rocked because it because public, there is no way this was not public knowledge.

Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.

The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the “Charlie Rose” show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts “CBS This Morning” and is a contributing correspondent for “60 Minutes.”

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.

Five of the women spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of Rose’s stature in the industry, his power over their careers or what they described as his volatile temper.

UPDATE I: Charlie Rose has been suspended by PBS and CBS News.

So now Rose is embarrassed by his behavior and apologizes? Really? Isn’t he just feeling this way because he was caught?

Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations, with PBS halting distribution of his nightly interview show and CBS News suspending him Monday following a Washington Post report with the accusations of eight women.

The women, who all worked for Rose or tried to work for him, accused the veteran newsman of groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude.

Rose, 75, said in a statement that he was “deeply embarrassed” and apologized for his behavior.

“PBS was shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations,” the public broadcasting service said in a statement. “We are immediately suspending distribution of ‘Charlie Rose.’”

UPDATE II: Sorry Charlie, Apology not accepted, That’s your apology?.

Are you kidding, only now Rose realizes that walking around nude, groping women and inappropriate comments are not acceptable behavior? Sorry Charlie, you don’t get a free pass like you should not have known better.  Powerline calls Rose’s behavior like about an eight on the 1 to 10 Weinstein Scale. So far, let’s wait until more women and stories are revealed. This sounds like only the tip of the iceberg.

“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.

“I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

Rose said that he has behaved insensitively at times “and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too.”

If any more come out, which they will … Charlie Rose’s career looks to be finished.

Just One Hour Before the Las Vegas Massacre Big & Rich and Crowd Sings “God Bless America” (VIDEO) … CBS Legal Exec Fired After Sasying No Sympathy For Vegas ‘Because Country Music Fans Often Are Republican

IT WAS THE THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES …

The below video makes my heart cry in so many ways. Just one hour prior to the Las Vegas shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival thousands of fans sang in unison with the country band Big & Rich belting out the lyrics to ‘God Bless America’ as they held their cell phones in the air lighting up the crowd with pride and patriotism. What an awesome sight. Then, 59 of those lights were killed by an insane mad man. Over 585 of those lights were wounded as the rest ran for their lives. One of those individuals killed was 29 year old Sonny Melton from Big Sandy, Tennessee who was their with his wife Heather, on their one year wedding anniversary. Heather Melton said her husband saved her life while gunfire was hitting the crowd. God bless. During the cowardly actions of the gunman who fired on a defenseless crowd who’s only crime was attending a country music festival, there were so many acts of selflessness and bravery as strangers helped each other by protecting them from gun fire, helping them get to the hospital, providing care and in some cases laying an article of clothing over the deceased. America, these are the things that make us great. No one ever plans on anything like this happening, but when it does, when we see heinous acts of mans inhumanity against man, we also see what makes us good and the best of us.

Then there is the not s best of us … Sadly, during this heinous act of violence that saw 59 innocent people die and over 500 wounded, we also get the actions of misguided individuals who can help but spew hatred. CBS News fired Hayley Geftman-Gold, who was a vice president and senior legal counsel at CBS in New York, after she made the following comments. where she criticized some victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting as “Republican gun toters” who did not deserve sympathy. Are you kidding me? Hmm, how many others at CBS and the other liberal MSM feel the same way, they just were not completely ignorant to say it? Also, there were many politicians on the LEFT who could not even wait until the deceased were removed from the fields before they made this massacre political and called for gun control that would prevent nothing.

A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night.

“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

Harvard University Study Reveals Huge Extent of Anti-Trump Media Bias

TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW … NEWSFLASH, THE MSM IS BIAS AND HAS AN AGENDA AGAINST TRUMP.

According to a Harvard University study, the MSM bias against President Donald Trump is huge and unprecedented. If it seems like the MSM has it out for President Trump and reports pretty much every thing he does as negative, that is because they do. Just look at the charts below and see how the MSM reports on topics in a positive or negative slant and then take a look at how Trump compares to other presidents, especially Obama.

Keep this in mind when you watch the news. They are no longer reporting it, they are slanting it to fit their liberal, left-wing agenda. The MSM was AWOL for Obama’s eight years and the endless scandals like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS-gate, let alone the lies of Obamacare. But for Trump, they do not even give him a chance. The MSM is working in lockstep with the Democrat party as their propaganda arm. Remember this, especially at election time.

Harvard_media_Trump

A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.

Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

It found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:

In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.

They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.

Every outlet was negative more often than positive.

Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.
