Nets Grill Ted Cruz on ‘No-Compromise’ ‘Hardline’ Conservative Views

 

In interviews with all three broadcast networks on Tuesday, newly-announced Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz was pressed on whether he would abandon his conservative principles in a White House run. Matt Lauer: “In your short time in the Senate you’ve developed a reputation as a guy who does not back down, who will not compromise….Will you bring that brand of no-compromise to the White House if you’re elected?”

NYT on Ted Cruz’s Debut: A ‘Demagogue’ and ‘Flamethrower’

 

The New York Times on Monday welcomed Ted Cruz to the 2016 presidential race by highlighting accusations that the Texas Republican is a “demagogue” and a “political flamethrower.” In a piece by Nick Corasaniti and Patrick Healy, the two writers declared, “He sometimes deploys the soaring diction of a preacher while staking out uncompromising and rigid conservative positions, often playing the role of political flamethrower.”

Chorus: Late Night Comics Mock Ted Cruz as Anti-Immigrant, Stupid

 

In a preview of the 2016 campaign, all five late night comics on Monday night mocked Ted Cruz, hitting the Republican as anti-immigrant, regressive and stupid. CBS host David Letterman didn’t bother with a joke. Instead, he lectured, “Here’s what I find interesting about Ted Cruz, he was born in Canada. His father fled to the United States from Cuba. Yet, Ted Cruz is against immigration. Isn’t that odd?”

Obama Taps Washington Post Veteran Murray to Replace Pfeiffer as Senior Adviser

 

To serve in his inner-most circle of trusted confidants, President Obama has selected someone who spent most of her adult life in a profession very friendly to him and eager to boost his liberal causes: journalism. Former Washington Post political reporter Shailagh Murray will succeed Dan Pfeiffer as Senior Adviser to the President.

Networks Fail to Cover WH Spokesman Refusing to Call the Taliban a Terrorist Organization

 

During the daily White House press briefing on Wednesday, Deputy Spokesman Eric Schultz had an exchange with ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl where he declined to label the Taliban as a terrorist organization, instead insisting it’s “an armed insurgency.” The “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC all failed to cover this story during their Wednesday evening newscasts. Reacting to the video after it was aired on the Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier, Charles Krauthammer blasted the choice of labeling considering that the Taliban “slits throats,” “attacks buses,” and “drives car bombs into markets.”

 

CBS Evening News Omits AG Nominee Loretta Lynch Saying Illegals Have a Right to Work in America

 

On Wednesday, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley was the lone network evening newscast to cover the confirmation hearings of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but though CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes featured numerous soundbites from Senate Republicans questioning Lynch, she failed to include how Lynch stated her support for allowing people to seek work in the United States, regardless of their legal status.

 

Only CBS Notices Obama Abandoning College Savings Tax Amid Bipartisan Opposition

 

After all three network evening newscasts ignored President Obama dropping his controversial plan to tax 529 college savings accounts on Tuesday, only Wednesday’s CBS This Morning noticed the development, giving it a mere seventeen seconds. Neither NBC’sToday nor ABC’s Good Morning America covered the White House reversal. This Morningco-host Norah O’Donnell informed viewers: “The Wall Street Journal says President Obama is dropping his proposal to raise taxes on 529 college savings accounts. His plan had faced opposition from Republican House John Boehner and top Democrats. They said it would hurt the middle class. Instead The White House will focus on delivering a larger package of education tax relief.”

 

Washington Post’s Milbank: Obama on Track to Be As Popular As Reagan

 

On MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Tuesday, host Al Sharpton touted liberal Washington Postcolumnist Dana Milbank making a “bold prediction” about the remainder of Barack Obama’s presidency: “…you wrote, quote, ‘If the economy continues on its current trajectory, as most expect, he’ll leave office a popular president and leave the 2016 Democratic nominee with a relatively easy past to victory.'” Milbank doubled down on the prediction made in his column printed in Sunday’s newspaper: “Well, it’s not so surprising. He crossed fifty percent today. I think he’s on his way up to fifty-five percent, that puts him in a category not with George W. Bush but with Ronald Reagan.” Sharpton happily replied: “I’ll leave it there, on the Reagan note.”

 

PBS’s Charlie Rose Chides Republican’s ‘State-Run News Service’

 

Veteran journalist Charlie Rose is an anchor on the state-sponsored PBS. On Wednesday, Rose chided Republican Governor Mike Pence for starting a “state-run news service.” Rose, who also co-hosts CBS This Morning, chuckled as he related, “Indiana Governor Mike Pence is starting a state-run news service funded by taxpayer money.” (PBS received about $445 million in taxpayer money in 2012.) Rose highlighted, “Critics say Pence is pushing his agenda by pretending the service is independent news.” Co-host Norah O’Donnell also mocked, “Hmm. What country does that remind me of?”

ABC Hails White House’s ‘Remarkable’ Admission, NBC Allows 10 Seconds

 

NBC’s Today on Tuesday offered a scant ten seconds to the White House’s backpedaling on skipping the massive anti-terror rally in France. In contrast, ABC’s Good Morning America heralded the admission as “rapid” and “remarkable.” CBS This Morning offered the most balanced coverage, featuring Ted Cruz complaining, “Where was the secretary of state? Where was the attorney general…?” White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Monday admitted, “I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to [the Paris rally].” On GMA, George Stephanopoulos trumpeted this as an “unusually rapid concession for the White House.”

 

Ed Schultz, Who Compared Limbaugh to Hitler, Slams Hitler Comparisons

 

Ed Schultz clearly doesn’t listen to Ed Schultz. The MSNBC anchor, who once compared Rush Limbaugh to Hitler, on Tuesday decried a Hitler comparison for Barack Obama. Schultz railed against a tweet by Republican Congressman Randy Weber about the White House not sending a representative to Paris for the anti-terror rally.

 

 Luke Russert Slams GOP Immigration Bill As ‘Very Far To The Right’

 

On Tuesday morning, Luke Russert, NBC News Congressional Correspondent, appeared on MSNBC’s The Rundown with Jose Diaz-Balart to discuss the current tensions between the newly-controlled Republican Congress and President Obama. Speaking to anchor Jose Diaz-Balart, Russert criticized the GOP’s immigration plan and argued that they are “going to move forward with their bill on Wednesday, Jose. It goes very far to the right.”

 

New York Times Article on ‘Anti-Immigration’ March in Germany Doesn’t Interview Single Person There

 

In the Tuesday print edition of The New York Times, an article appeared on A11 about the “anti-Islam” and “anti-immigration rally in Germany” that took place in Dresden on Mondayand, in addition to trashing their position, reporter Melissa Eddy failed to interview or quote any of the over 20,000 demonstrators. Over course of the 650 word plus article, Eddy instead included quotes from Germany’s justice minister, a spokesman for the city of Leipzig, Chancellor Angela Merkel, a European Parliament member from “the rightist Alternative for Germany party” and an excerpt of “a declaration” from the group organizing the protests.

 

Variety Editor Laughably Claims Hollywood ‘Likes to Avoid Politics’

 

On Monday’s Today, while discussing celebrities at Sunday’s Golden Globes expressing solidarity with the French following a series of terrorist attacks, Variety magazine senior editor Ramin Setoodeh made an odd assertion: “It was a very political night and Hollywood usually likes to avoid politics, but last night they went all in and they were very political.” “Hollywood usually likes to avoid politics” – since when? Quite the contrary, left-wing stars have routinely used Hollywood award shows to spout off on any number of political issues. In fact, Girls actress Lena Dunham used the red carpet at the Globes to slam “deranged Neocons” who criticize her on the internet.

Brian Williams Slow-Jams The (Biased) News on Obama’s Immigration Power Grab

 

Appearing on Tuesday’s Tonight Show, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams joined host Jimmy Fallon in “slow-jamming the news” about President Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. The comedy skit made sure to include the media’s liberal spin on the topic – that obstructionist Republicans were just preventing Obama from getting things done in Washington. Williams touted White House talking points: “The President has defended his decision, arguing that he would have preferred to have Congress pass a permanent immigration bill, which he said he would gladly sign. But instead they have yet to take action, so the President felt he had to do it himself.”

 

Networks Obsessed Over GOP Staffer, Ignore Democrat’s Sex Assault

 

The same networks that hyped a Republican staffer’s comments about Barack Obama’s daughters are now ignoring the sexual assault conviction of a Democratic congressional aide. According to the Washington Post, Donny Ray Williams “pleaded guilty to third-degree sexual abuse, two misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and one count of misdemeanor threats.” Williams was a staff director for the Senate majority and previously worked for panels run by Democrats as Mary Landrieu and Elijah Cummings. The conviction on Tuesday has received, so far, no coverage on ABC, CBS and NBC.

 

ABC Still Ignores Obama Donor/Former Soap Opera Producer Being Named Ambassador to Hungary

 

On Wednesday night, ABC became the only major broadcast network to not have covered the controversy over President Obama’s choice to name former soap opera producer and Obama reelection campaign bundler Colleen Bell the new United States Ambassador to Hungary. The network’s zero coverage of this story came more than a day after ABC’s own chief White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl, grilled White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on what exactly did Bell have in terms of qualifications for the job (to which Earnest was visibly stumped). On Wednesday night, NBC caught up with CBS by airing a full report on NBC Nightly News.

 

Top Obama Cabinet Official Grilled By Congress, Nets Ignore

 

In theory, a major cabinet official going to Capitol Hill and being grilled by members of Congress would be news. But Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security secretary faced withering questions on Tuesday and the networks ignored it. Another thing newscasts seem to like (particularly when it involves Republicans) is claims of hypocrisy.

Media BiASS: Shamnesty in News…

CBS and NBC Parrot WH Argument on Previous Presidential Immigration Policies as Grounds for Amnesty

 

On Wednesday night, CBS and NBC promoted the White House talking point that previous presidential actions on immigration gives President Barack Obama the proper legal authority to enact executive amnesty the evening before a primetime address to the nation on the topic. At no point during the coverage on either network did their reporters mention that this justification is being used despite the President’s previous assertions that he did not have the proper legal means to carry out any sort of mass-reaching executive order on illegal immigration.

 

MSNBC Brings on 9/11, JFK Conspiracy Theorist Jesse Ventura to Slam Keystone

 

According to MSNBC, as long as you tout left-wing talking points, it doesn’t matter what kind of conspiracy theories you subscribe to. Ronan Farrow on Wednesday hyped the “fascinating” views of Jesse Ventura on Wednesday, including his opposition to building the Keystone pipeline. Farrow delicately ignored Ventura’s long-standing embrace of 9/11 trutherism, his support for the idea that the CIA (or LBJ) killed John F. Kenedy and his contention that American citizens are about to be rounded up in prison camps. Instead, regarding Keystone, Farrow enthused over the former Minnesota’s “strong take” on the Keystone vote, adding, “I’m actually fascinated to hear [this].”

 

 ‘Daily Show’ Notices Gruber Scandal Before ‘NBC Nightly News’

 

While NBC Nightly News has failed to mention Jonathan Gruber’s scandalous comments about ObamaCare for eleven days, Comedy Central’s fake newsman Jon Stewart devoted eight minutes to the controversy on The Daily Show Tuesday night. After playing various clips of Gruber crediting passage of the health care law on the “stupidity of the American voter,” Stewart went a step further by playing a 2006 soundbite of then-Senator Barack Obama hailing Gruber as one of the “brightest minds” at the liberal-leaning Brookings Institution.

 

Chuck Todd Excuses Lack of Gruber Coverage: ‘What Is the News Today of That?’

 

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, appeared on Newsmax TV’s The Steve Malzberg Show on Tuesday, November 18 to discuss a variety of issues including the existence of liberal media bias. Speaking specifically on the lack of network news coverage surrounding the Jonathan Gruber controversy, Todd dismissed Malzberg’s assertion that this was an example of media bias and argued “I’m not saying it’s not a story. Look, I’m not in charge of any of those network newscasts. But what is the news today of that? It’s a political story.”

 

Shock: ABC Grills Obama on Executive Order Flip Flop

 

In a surprising twist, ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday grilled Barack Obama for flip-flopping on whether he has the legal authority to issue an executive order on immigration. Before playing a clip of Jon Karl grilling White House press secretary Josh Earnest, George Stephanopoulos pointed out: “…The President has suggested in the past that he doesn’t have the kind of power to do this on his own.”

NBC Nightly News Keeps Quiet on Gruber as ABC’s World News Tonight Finally Covers Story

 

On Tuesday night, NBC Nightly News continued its streak of ignoring comments made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber into an 11th day while ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir finally brought up Gruber’s comments on the “stupidity of the American voter” and the “advantage” of having a “lack of transparency” in getting ObamaCare passed. Anchor David Muir discussed the story for one minute and 16 seconds with ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl and described the situation as a “controversy” and labeled Gruber as “one of the architects of ObamaCare” two days after President Obama brushed off Gruber as merely “some adviser who never worked on our staff.”

 

ABC and NBC Ignore Gruber’s Numerous W.H. Visits, CBS Barely Covers

 

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of ObamaCare, made more than a dozen visits to visit the White House since “Democrats began drafting the law in 2009.” Despite the latest developments in the Gruber controversy, which contradicts President Obama’s line that Gruber was “some advisor who never worked on our staff,” CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to mention the report, giving it a mere 24 seconds during its Tuesday morning broadcast. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today ignored the Journal’s report altogether.

 

Ex-Obama Aide Destroys Media Narrative, Admits Gruber Was an ‘Important Figure’

 

A former adviser to Barack Obama on Tuesday overturned the media narrative, promoted by the President, that Jonathan Gruber was an unimportant, minor figure. The New York Times on Tuesday insisted in an editorial, “Republicans are crowing over Mr. Gruber’s remarks because he has been portrayed as a major architect of the health reform law. In truth, his role was limited.” The health care operative has repeatedly bragged about fooling “stupid” Americans. The paper’s editors lectured, Yet, Steven Rattner, a former Obama administration adviser, countered this narrative on Morning Joe. He blurted, “But I remember that when I was in the White House, he was certainly viewed as an important figure in helping to put Obamacare together.”

 

Krauthammer: Obama Counted On ‘Minions in the Press’ to Help Cover Up Gruber Scandal

 

Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report Monday, columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested that the reason President Obama waited a week to comment on the Jonathan Gruber ObamaCare scandal was because the White House knew it could count on the liberal media to ignore the story: “…they’ve had six years experience of the press essentially conspiring with them….the administration issues statements, it uses Gruber reports, it’s echoed by their minions in the press, then repeated by Democrats as if this is objective evidence…” Krauthammer explained: “I think that they calculated the President could go a week without talking about it and then pretend he never heard of it because you wouldn’t hear about it in the press. And in fact, except for Fox, you look at all the networks and you showed that last week, it’s been a blackout.”

 

Media Critic: Fox News ‘Far Better Watchdog’ on Obama Than ‘Any Other’ TV News Outlet

 

In a Tuesday article, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik examined the reason behind Fox News beating every other TV news outlet in the ratings – including NBC, ABC and CBS – during November 4 midterm election coverage: “…it’s time to think seriously about what that says about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, the state of network news today and the role TV plays or doesn’t play in providing us with reliable, trustworthy information.” Zurawik offered one possible explanation: “I think one of the reasons for this latest evolution of ratings dominance might be that Fox was a far better watchdog on the Obama White House than any other TV news organization. It took the heat and the blowback from an administration that showed an enmity for the press not seen on Pennsylvania Avenue since the dark days of Richard Nixon, but it stayed the course. And now with viewers seeing the contempt this administration had for them and the truth, they respect what Fox did the last six years.”

 

Gen. Honore Jabs the Media: ‘People Like You’ Driving Chaos in Ferguson

 

On Monday’s AC360 on CNN, retired Lt. General Russel Honore rebuked the media’s coverage of the ongoing controversy surrounding the police shooting of Michael Brown. Anderson Cooper raised how a liberal legal analyst contended that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s activation of the National Guard, in anticipation of a grand jury decision on the case, was an “escalation of this military-style approach that didn’t work in the first place.” He then asked, “Do you agree with that – that it could, in some ways, do more harm than – than good?”

ABC, NBC Continue to Omit Coverage of Report Alleging WH Role in Prostitution Scandal

 

According to a report in The Washington Post, senior White House officials knew that an individual with the White House advance team had a prostitute spend the night with him as part of the 2012 Colombian prostitution scandal despite the White House previously denying any involvement during the official investigation. After failing to cover the story on their morning newscasts, ABC and NBC continued that blackout into their Thursday evening newscasts as well. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley ignored the story as well, despite the network having aired a full report on Thursday’s CBS This Morning.

 

ABC and NBC Ignore Report Claiming White House Lied About Prostitution Scandal

 

On Thursday morning, the Washington Post reported that senior White House officials knew that an Obama volunteer hired a prostitute during the infamous Columbia prostitution scandal of 2012 but Team Obama tried to hide such information during the official investigation. Despite the Post report, CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to acknowledge the story during its Thursday morning broadcast. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today predictably ignored the report altogether.

 

Rosie O’Donnell Endorses: Jimmy Carter Is ‘My Favorite President Ever’

 

View co-host and 9/11 Truther Rosie O’Donnell on Thursday gushed over Jimmy Carter: “He’s not just a Democrat. I think he is a man of peace.” O’Donnell, who on Tuesday blamed the creation of ISIS on the United States, continued, “He is my favorite president ever and, I think, probably, the most pious human being I’ve ever met in my life.” She added, “I have tremendous respect, admiration for him and his wife.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg offered an unimpressed shrug. She responded, “He’s okay.” The topic came up on the show after Carter spoke out, criticizing Obama’s handling of the terror group ISIS.

 

Former CNN Pundit Roland Martin Rips ‘Cowardly Bullies’ at the NRA

 

In a Thursday column for The Daily Beast, former CNN contributor Roland Martin attacked the supposed “cowardly bullies” at the National Rifle Association for opposing President Obama’s surgical general nominee. Martin’s op-ed follows in the footsteps of MSNBC’s Krystal Ball and NBC’s Anne Thompson, who politicized the Ebola crisis nearly a week earlier when they bemoaned that due to “Senate dysfunction and NRA opposition, we don’t have a surgeon general right now.”

 

U.S. President In ABC Prime Time: ‘Right to Bear Arms’ in Constitution and ‘So Was Slavery’

 

ABC’s Scandal, which has a fresh episode tonight (Thursday), last week featured “President Fitzgerald Grant,” supposedly a Republican, channeling Piers Morgan as he used the State of the Union address to plead for more gun control: “How many other people’s children are we going to let die before we put a stop to this?” “Grant,” played by Tony Goldwyn, recalled how his teen son died of a “fluke” infection, but “there were thousands of people last year who lost their lives in a completely avoidable way.” He then compared gun rights with slavery: “The right to bear arms — set in stone in the Constitution by our founding fathers. So was slavery, by the way.”
