Media BiASSed: Losers Talking…


On PBS, Brooks Pines for Trump ‘Apocalypse’ to Inspire Bipartisanship

On Friday’s regular "Shields and Brooks" segment on PBS Newshour, New York Times columnist David Brooks — the supposedly more right-leaning half of the pairing — oddly seemed to wish for some sort of "apocalypse" to beset the Donald Trump administration as he theorized and predicted that some scandal or "grievous blow" to the White House might inspire more bipartisanship in the aftermath. After host Judy Woodruff was surprised by his prediction of an "apocalypse," he only walked back his bizarre choice of words slightly: "Well, I — that word came out — I should have stuck with ‘acidity.’ That would have been a better word."

Intercept Co-Founder Goes Off the Rails, Compares Dick Cheney to ‘Butcher’ Assad

A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…”

‘Meet the Press’ Debates If Hillary Lost Because of the Country’s ‘Misogyny’

In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many of us.”

Obama Would’ve Been ‘Impeached!’ The View Goes Nuts Over Trump’s Syria Strike

Friday morning on The View, the show started off with a fiery exchange over the U.S. missile strike in Syria last night. The panel was strictly divided, with conservative hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila fiercely disagreeing with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin that the missile strike was unconstitutional.

FLASHBACK: ABC Gushed Over ‘Charming,’ ‘Thoughtful’ Assad

Reacting to the air strikes ordered by President Trump, Good Morning America journalist Martha Raddatz on Friday assailed the “horrific chemical attack” by Syria’s dictator. Given that the war criminal Bashar al-Assad brutally massacred over 70 of his own people, the journalists at ABC might be embarrassed at how, through the years, they fawned over the “charming,” “intelligent,” “thoughtful” Assad.

Year After Trump Smear, Boston Globe Predictions Flop

On April 9, 2016, the Boston Globe journalists imagined the horrific, dark future world of April 9, 2017. The Globe put together a fake news front cover with Donald Trump as president. One year later, the headlines haven’t aged well. This headline slimed Trump: “U.S. soldiers refuse orders to kill ISIS families.”
