Media BiASSed: Drooling Idiots…


Meet CBS’s Scott Pelley, the Most Anti-Trump Anchor on TV News

 

CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley is plainly the most anti-Trump of the Big Three anchormen, having gone out of his way since the Inauguration to slam Trump’s “falsehoods,” even asking if the President “is having difficulty with rationality.” For taking on the President in such a direct way, Pelley has become something of a rock star among his fellow journalists.

CBS Trashes White House’s Tax Plan, Critique Divorced from Reality

 

The White House on Wednesday released the outline for the President’s proposed tax plan that would drastically cut taxes and simplify the filing process, among other things. CBS’s resident Trump critic and anchor, Scott Pelley kicked off the show smearing it. “Today the Trump administration rushed out a plan for historic tax cuts high on hyperbole, but with only a dollop of detail,” he declared at the top of CBS Evening News. His critique was loaded with snide attacks at the President and at one point divorced itself from reality, something Pelley once chastised Trump for.

Nets Decry ‘Lost Revenue’ in Tax Plan; Fear Financial ‘Windfall’ for Trump

 

On Wednesday, the network morning shows responded to President Trump’s tax reform plan with the standard liberal rhetoric employed whenever Republicans call for tax cuts: How are you going to pay for this massive loss of government revenue?! The ABC and NBC broadcasts also feared the plan would help Trump financially (as it would for all Americans).

Media Cheer: Trump ‘Reeling’ After ‘Big Setback’ to ‘Hardline’ Immigration Policy

 

The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Wednesday were grateful that a liberal federal judge sent the White House “reeling” after he handed President Trump “another big setback” to his “hardline immigration policy.” Rather than actually highlight the criminals who have evaded capture due to lax enforcement of immigration laws in left-wing sanctuary cities, the networks instead celebrated the ruling as a loss for the administration.

CNN’s Stelter Denies He’s ‘Freaked Out’ or ‘Crusading’ Against Trump, Rules His Rallies Were ‘Poison’

 

Appearing on BuzzFeed News editor-in-chief Ben Smith’s podcast released Wednesday, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter covered a number of topics, including the touting of his gooey Washington Post profile, knocking Trump rallies as “poison,” denying that he’s been “freaked out” over this Trump era, and the admirable joy he has for becoming a father.

Politico Gushes: ‘Moral Authority’ Rather Here to ‘Battle’ ‘Hitler’-esque Trump

 

After running a great piece yesterday about how polarized journalism has become, Politico took a left turn Wednesday writing a lengthy puff piece on disgraced CBS News anchor Dan Rather’s return to the spotlight or as Politico put it, his “second coming.” While Politico’s senior writer Michael Kruse didn’t shy away from Rather’s own history with “fake news,” the scandal that tore away Rather’s credibility was only the backdrop to the gushing narrative of the “resurrected” journalist whose voice of “moral authority” and “love of country” “obligated” him to call out the current “authoritarian regime.”
