Media BiASSed:


1. CNN Panelist Calls Out ‘Opposition Party’ Media, Stelter Plays Dumb

 

Things got a little heated during CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday when former Editor for The New York Observer Ken Kurson called out the media for acting as the opposition party to President Donald Trump. “So, the idea here is that the media have become the opposition to Trump … I mean, just listening to the intro to this show,” he told his host, CNN’s ridiculous figure Brian Stelter. As would be expected, that didn’t sit well with Stelter who pretended the media don’t have a disdain for the President.

2. ABC Twists Trump Lawyer’s Words, Claim Pardons Are ‘Not off the Table’

 

On Sunday, Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Trump, appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss the latest developments in the Russia story, particularly those involving the President’s son and son-in-law. Towards the end of the interview, Jon Karl pressed Sekulow about the concerns of presidential pardons, citing the worries of Senate Democrat Mark Warner. But no matter how many time Sekulow explained that he didn’t know the President’s position on the question, Karl kept insisting he was saying Trump was seriously thinking about it.

3. NYT Worries Jane Sanders FBI Probe Will ‘Tarnish’ Bernie’s ‘Liberal Luster’

 

What has been reported by many but ignored by the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) is that Jane Sanders, the wife of Senator Bernie Sanders, is currently under an “accelerated” investigation by the FBI for bank fraud. And on Saturday, The New York Times was openly worried about what it could do for the Senator’s chances in upcoming elections. The investigation “is threatening to take some of the luster off the senator’s populist appeal,” wrote Yamiche Alcindor, national reporter for the paper.

4. What’s the Difference? CNN to Republican: ‘I’m Not the Left. I’m a Journalist’

 

Providing some unintentional comedy, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Thursday lectured a conservative Congressman, telling him, “I’m not the left. I’m a journalist.” Collectively, many Americans must have thought: “What’s the difference?” The haughty defense came after Harlow demanded of Congressman Jim Jordan: “Are you comfortable with that huge reduction in Medicaid funding?”

5. Tasteless Colbert Denigrates Kellyanne Conway as ‘Satan’s Trophy Wife’ Defending Donald Trump Jr.

 

On Thursday, CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert reminded everyone how lewd and pathetic his behavior has been, tearing into White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway as “Satan’s trophy wife” during a shtick mocking her most recent Hannity appearance defending the Trump administration from Russian collusion claims.
