Media BiASSed:


1. Not a Shock: Journalists Make Scaramucci’s First Press Conference About Them

 

Hours after it was announced that Sean Spicer had resigned as White House press secretary, Anthony Scaramucci was announced as the new Director of Communications. In an inaugural press conference, journalists made it all about themselves. ABC’s Jon Karl demanded, “Let me ask you a variation of what I asked Sean Spicer on his first day. Is it your commitment to the best of your ability give accurate information and truth from that podium?”

2. Now He’s Gone, CNN’s Jim Acosta Notes How Spicer ‘Was Raked Over the Coals Publicly’

 

Calling into CNN’s Inside Politics after news broke Friday afternoon Sean Spicer would resign from the position of White House press secretary, senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta trumpeted the reality that Spicer “was raked over the coals publicly” on Saturday Night Live and in the media (especially by people like Acosta).

3. Flashback: Bill Clinton Shoved Aside ‘Scary’ Stephanopoulos in Favor of ‘Grown-Up’

 

Sean Spicer resigned as White House Press Secretary on Friday. Journalists immediately jumped on this as an example of yet more turmoil and harped on Spicer’s “missteps.” But White House tumult is hardly new, even for Presidents who would go on to serve two terms. ABC should know, considering that the network admitted in 1993 that then-President Bill Clinton “shunted aside” top aide George Stephanopoulos in favor of “grown-up” David Gergen. Stephanopoulos would go on to eventually host Good Morning America on the network.

Appearing on MSNBC’s 11 a.m. ET hour on Friday, Republican North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer called out the “unhealthy obsession” the media have with accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, sending co-hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle into full freak-out mode. The liberal anchors dismissed the notion as “nonsense.”

5. Matthews Likens Donald Trump to O.J. Simpson, Wants DOJ to Be ‘His Personal Johnnie Cochrans’

 

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews wasn’t done on Thursday night with the ridiculous comparisons involving Donald Trump, ending the show by comparing the President to O.J. Simpson in that he wants all government attorneys “to serve as his personal Johnnie Cochrans and Special Counsels named specifically to investigate him.”
