Daily Commentary – Wednesday, July 27, 2016 – So What Cable Network Has Done The Best at Covering the Conventions?
- I’m partial to Fox News, but some say CNN or MSNBC are covering them better
I HOPE DONALD TRUMP DIDN’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE THE MSM WAS ON HIS SIDE AND WOULD TREAT HIM FAIRLY?
In an interview with CNN, Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, told the media its now time to ask Donald Trump the hard question and to hold his feet to the fire. Unreal, this can only be interpreted as Clinton giving the liberal MSM their marching orders to go after Trump. I wonder is the same types of questions are supposed to be asked of Clinton? Too bad CNN didn’t say ok and we will start with you … and ask her about her private email server and what she would do if indicted? What would happen if the media actually ever got tough on Hillary Clinton? Of course that would never happen.
“I think reporters now have a chance to ask some tougher questions,” said Clinton. “It’s not enough to call in and give somebody a platform. It’s now the time to make the tough decisions, and you got to the ask him, okay, so what exactly would you replace X, Y, and Z with? If you’re going to be against trade agreements how is that going to work?”
Clinton later added, “So let’s get to the specifics. … Being a loose cannon doesn’t in any way protect him, I hope, from being asked the hard questions that he should have been asked during the whole primary process.”
The following is what will determine whether the liberal MSM will carry the water for Hillary like they did Obama, or play the general election coverage some what down the middle. Do media outlets like CNN want to continue to gain viewership and challenge FOX News, or do they want to be relegated to the cellar in the ratings again?
Bernie Sanders Says to Hillary Clinton: “Excuse me, I’m talking.” at CNN Democratic Debate As He Rips Her on Wall Street Bailout
HILLARY CLINTON FEELS THE BERN AS HE RIPS HER ON THE WALLSTREET BAILOUT …
It’s about time Bernie Sanders stepped up and told Hillary Clinton to close her mouth and let him speak. During the latest Democrat debate on CNN as Sanders was shredding Clinton on her Wall Street bailout, Hillary interrupted, only to have Sanders say, “excuse me, I’m talking”. The debates are actually finally getting contentious, but unfortunately for Bernie its too little and too late. I Sanders actually went after Clinton about her untrustworthiness and the private email server scandal, he would destroy her.
But the tension between the two was palpable. Clinton dropped a fact she’d been waiting to use: Sanders’ opposition to the auto bailout — a stance President Barack Obama used to devastating effect against Republican nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.
Sanders started to respond: “If you are talking about the Wall Street bailout where some of your friends destroyed this economy —“ before Clinton interrupted. “Excuse me, I’m talking,” Sanders snapped.
“If you’re going to talk, tell the whole story, Senator Sanders,” she replied.
“Let me tell my story, you tell yours,” he shot back.
Before long, Sanders pivoted the discussion to Clinton’s proximity to Wall Street, again calling on her to release the transcripts of her paid speeches to banks. She said she would only if all her opponents — Republican and Democrat — did the same.
CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”
CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …
There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?
Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Calls Out the Liberal MSM for Giving Donald Trump Too Much Attention … Boo Hoo, Liberal MSM Not Giving Liberals Enough Air Time
SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS ISN’T A BRAIN SURGEON, BUT HE DID STAY IN A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LAST NIGHT …
Oh the irony, Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo and whined over the media coverage that was being given to Donald Trump. Sanders stated that the MSM was giving Trump too much media attention and was only doing so because Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks. Hmm, because backing a socialist agenda and making silly “socialist” comments don’t seem to catch the attention of a capitalist media, go figure?
Sanders called out Cuomo and stated that all the attention to Trump was “more of an indictment of the media, than of Trump”. Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls. However, Sanders has a point, but this is not anything different than they have ever done. But normally, the MSM is just paying attention to ridiculous liberal crap that is of no consequence as Rome burns.
Isn’t it comical though to see a liberal, and in this case a socialist, complaining about how much media coverage the liberal and bias MSM is giving to a Republican candidate? I cannot remember ever seeing such a thing. Of course, Sanders is acting as if all the media coverage for Trump is positive. But for liberals/socialists to complain the liberal MSM is not giving them enough air time is priceless.
Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks because they get media coverage — and blamed the press for falling for the real estate developer’s act.
“I’ll give you one example,” Sanders said in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” “A recent study showed on ABC evening news, Trump over a period of time got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why.”
Sanders continued, “I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart. He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks,” he told host Chris Cuomo. “I think this is more of an indictment of the media than it is Trump.”
But Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls.
“I don’t see it,” Cuomo said. “Do we cover him more? Yes. Why? He’s number one in the polls. He’s highly relevant. He drives the discussion.”
But Sanders — who is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton 34% to 50% in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday -- interrupted Cuomo to say that Trump is on top because he is able to get his message out due to all of the media coverage.
But that is what socialism is all about, everything is the same. It is giving irrelevant people and issues the same amount of attention and time as the most important and pending ones. Don’t worry Bernie, you will be given a participation trophy after Hillary Clinton wins the Democrat primaries.
