Media BiASSed:


1. NBC Decries Rise of Conservative Media for Creating Polarized Country, No Mention of MSNBC

 

What NBC’s Willie Geist spun as a rundown of the political echo chambers in America on Sunday Today, quickly devolved into a condemnation of the rise of conservative media. “Fake news is a favorite term, as you know, of President Trump. What you consider real and fake in many cases has become a question of where you’re sitting and who you’re listening to,” declared Geist at the start of the segment. He ignored the fact that the term was first used to describe stories about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

2. CNN: ‘Dangerous’ ‘Fascist’ Trump Threatening Our Lives With His WWE Tweet

 

If there were two things President Trump knew how to do well, it’s tweet and get under the skin of the folks at CNN. Well, he did both on Sunday, when he tweeted a rather juvenile clip of a fight he had with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon a long time ago, with the CNN logo placed over McMahon’s face. As would be expected, CNN’s ridiculous figure Brian Stelter lost his mind on Reliable Sources later that morning as he and his stacked liberal panel decried the tweet as fascist, a grave danger, and a threat to the people that work at CNN.

3. Network Morning Shows Devote 52X More Coverage to Trump Tweet Than Kate’s Law

 

After Thursday’s network evening newscasts devoted 28 times more coverage to Donald Trump’s offensive tweets than to important immigration reform legislation, on Friday, the morning shows on ABC, NBC, and CBS offered even more lopsided reporting. Combined, ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s Today, and CBS This Morning devoted a staggering 52 times the amount of coverage to the President’s social media attack than to Kate’s Law passing the House.

4. NYT Quietly Corrects Major Falsehood They Helped Spread on Russia Investigation

 

Thursday night The New York Times quietly issued a correction online that admitted one of the media’s major talking points about the Russia investigation wasn’t actually true. The correction was discreetly placed on their website under a 5 day-old article on Trump and Russia by Maggie Haberman called “Trump’s Deflections and Denials on Russia Frustrate Even His Allies.”

5. Maher & Dan Savage: Dems Should ‘Fight Dirty’ & ‘Cheat Like Republicans’

 

On Friday’s Real Time on HBO, far-left columnist and gay activist Dan Savage — known for making attacks on conservatives that are beyond inflammatory —  joined left-wing comedian Bill Maher in demonizing Republicans as the two agreed that Democrats should start “fighting dirty” and begin “cheating like Republicans.”
