Matthews Applauds ‘Anger from Progressives’ at Town Halls, Slammed Tea Party as Racist

Throughout Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed no concerns or reservations about the “grassroots resistance” and “anger from progressives” on display at congressional and Senate Republican town halls. All the while, he sang a different tune seven and eight years ago when the Tea Party was born, denouncing them as racists and sexists who shouldn’t be given the light of day.

2. Network Tale of Two Town Halls: Liberals ‘Sounding Off,’ Tea Partiers ‘Out of Hand’

 

On Wednesday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning both hailed liberal protesters “sounding off” at congressional town hall meetings “to put the breaks on President Trump’s agenda” and giving Republican lawmakers an “earful.” In 2009, the same networks warned similar public meetings were “getting out of hand” when “unruly” Tea Party demonstrators spoke out against the Obama administration.

3. Nets Tout Liberal Town Hall Protests, Deny Outside Organization

 

The liberal Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued to revel in the throngs of agitated leftists descending on the town hall meetings of GOP lawmakers Wednesday. “We begin tonight with Americans across this country determined to have their voices heard, and their target, members of Congress home for break,” hyped anchor David Muir, kicking off World News Tonight, “What they are getting instead is an earful.” They all pushed back on claims that the rabble-rousers were not organized protesters, but that’s not what one network was glorifying just last week.

4. Sure: CNN’s Baldwin Says It’s ‘Dangerous’ to Wonder If Town Hall Protesters Are Organized

 

The double standard continues, folks. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin seemed dismayed and testy when it came to questioning whether or not the attendees at solid congressional Republican town halls are liberal protesters, bemoaning the idea as “dangerous” rhetoric to be articulating.  Of course, NewsBusters readers will find this story to be quite humorous after recalling how this same network dismissed conservatives at town halls in 2009 and 2010 as astroturf or paid brown shirts.

5. NYT’s Kristof Talks How to ‘Get Rid of’ Trump, ‘Very Nervous’ on Deportation

 

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof declared that he feels “very nervous” about the Trump administration’s recent efforts to increase deportation of illegal immigrants, and ended up discussing his latest column, titled, “How Can We Get Rid of Trump?” which describes how the 25th Amendment could be used to remove President Donald Trump from office as an alternative to impeachment.

6. CBS Uses Teenage Refugees to Trash Trump for Temporary Travel Restrictions

 

To close out CBS Evening News Wednesday night, the network acted as though the White House’s rewrite of the President’s travel restrictions were to cut America off from the world. “What this refugee wants the president to know before he closes the door to America,” announced sit-in anchor Anthony Mason during the opening tease. CBS’s Mark Strassmann sat down with four teenage Somali refugees and used them as props as he pushed them to talk about how America was changing for the worse.

7. CBS: Trump Immigration Order Creates ‘Climate of Fear’ for Illegal ‘Citizens’

 

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.” Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community if it hasn’t already.”

8. WashPost Adds Line ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ to Top of Home Page; Mockery Ensues
