MSNBC Guest Schools Katy Tur On Their Violent Liberal Language – Katy Flips Out


Reported By Wes Walker | 

Since Erick Erickson had been critical of Trump in times past, Katy obviously expected her leading question would provoke another denunciation of the President. He did NOT give the answer she was fishing for.

When his answer was more sophisticated and nuanced than that — and cited examples of the role that DEMOCRATS have been contributors to the ‘rhetoric problem’, even BEFORE Trump was on the scene, she got defensive and whipped out her scolding finger.

How DARE he give a non-partisan answer! Truth bombs like that are dangerously destabilizing to the Media(D)’s carefully constructed ‘Trump-Is-Satan’ Narrative!

Erick dared to criticize their Obamessiah! And the Weather Underground, too! That topic is verboten!

Who said a guest on MSNBC was allowed to invoke history before the day Evil Orange Man came down that fateful escalator? What does he think this is… a frank and open conversation?

With such displays of journalistic objectivity, we couldn’t possibly imagine why the public has been losing confidence in traditional media.

If they’re hoping this will translate into a huge win on the left, they may have a nasty surprise in store for them. That blue wave they used to talk about isn’t so blue anymore.

Slow Death: CNN Dropped Below “Pawn Stars” Channel in Ratings


Reported By Ben Marquis | August 20, 2018 at 4:44pm

By now it has become predictable old news to hear that Fox News Channel defeated their cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC in the weekly ratings, as they have finished number one out of the big three in total average viewers per day for 31 consecutive weeks, according to Adweek.

Nor is it a surprise to hear that Fox beat their rivals in prime time viewership either, as they have done so for 11 consecutive weeks now.

What is somewhat surprising, and incredibly laughable, is that CNN — the formerly vaunted crown jewel of the establishment media — has sunk so low in the ratings that they are losing out to other basic cable networks in terms of prime time viewers, networks with decidedly less important topics to air than the serious news of the day.

The Daily Caller noted that while Fox ranked number one in total prime time viewers for the week of August 6-12 — 2.18 million viewers on the average evening — and were followed closely by MSNBC — 1.75 million viewers — both were trailed significantly by CNN, which averaged only 992,000 viewers during the prime time hours.

That placed CNN at seventh on the list, behind such basic cable networks as Home and Garden Television (1.33 million), USA Network (1.25 million), the History Channel (1.06 million) and TBS Network (1.02 million).

Essentially, CNN’s prime time stars like Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo are drawing fewer viewers than History Channel shows such as “Pawn Stars,” “American Pickers,” “Counting Cars,” “Mountain Men,” and perhaps funniest of all, “Ancient Aliens.”

Indeed, it would appear that more Americans would prefer to watch people haggle over the price of obscure antiques and old cars — or dive into the conspiracy theory of intelligent aliens visiting ancient civilizations on earth to help build the pyramids and teach them other civilization-building knowledge — than watch Cooper or Cuomo prattle on about Russians or bash the Trump administration on a daily basis.

Some of our readers who frequent social media have likely seen the memes of “Ancient Aliens” crazy-haired star Giorgio Tsoukalos stating “I’m not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.”

That meme has recently been transformed in light of the ratings news to now feature Cooper or Cuomo stating, “I’m not saying it was the Russians, but it was probably the Russians.”

It is worth noting that while CNN lost out to the History Channel during prime time hours, the media outlet did manage to beat the History Channel in terms of total day viewers — 674,000 to 548,000. That means that at least some day time viewers seem to prefer watching CNN compare the current administration to Nazis than watching documentaries on actual Nazis during WWII.

So there is that, I guess, that CNN has going for them. Now if only CNN can find a way to woo viewers away from Nickelodeon, HGTV and Investigation Discovery … but they’d still be trailing Fox and MSNBC during the day.

It is also worth pointing out that while Adweek had noted that number one Fox News had seen a slight decline in its total numbers over last year — down 4 percent in total day viewers and down 18 percent among the key 25-54 demographic — CNN saw an even greater decline in their viewer numbers over last year.

Indeed, CNN’s daytime total was off by 13 percent and they fell by 23 percent in terms of the key 25-54 demographic of viewers that advertisers are so fond of.

We are witnessing the slow death of the overtly biased liberal media — which isn’t confined simply to TV, as formerly widely-read legacy newspapers have also seen immense drops in their numbers. This decline has been brought about their own actions, and no amount of kicking and screaming about Russia, Trump is Hitler or racism everywhere is going to save them.

Reporting the news in a straight-forward and objective manner is the only remedy that will save them now, but that might as well be buried beneath an alien spacecraft hidden inside a pyramid or tucked away on the back shelf of a pawn shop, given the media’s continued lurch leftward in spite of their plummeting ratings.

Border Ranchers Shock MSNBC With Facts On Illegal Immigration

A husband and wife who ranch on the Rio Grande river told MSNBC on Tuesday that they believe President Trump is doing the right thing by enforcing border laws.

MSNBC tried to ask the couple a multitude of leading questions about the separation of families when they cross the border illegally, but the ranchers continuously smashed their narrative.

“When you see parents and children separated why do you support the policy that, to many people, appears to be heartless?” MSNBC’s Kerry Sanders asked.

Sanders asked Stephanie Cage, “You’re a mother, you’re a grandmother of seven, um, how do you react when you see that the families are being split apart?”

“Of course it is very upsetting, but I’m as equally upset with the parents for exposing their children to the dangers of smuggling their children across the border,” Cage replied.

The Cage family also debunked the notion that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are fleeing violence, retorting, “That’s very much exaggerated … very few cases are caused by that, I think most of them are coming over here to try to make a better life in this country and all this country has to offer.”

Fox News’ Worst-Rated Show Just Delivered Brutal Punishment to CNN


Reported By Ben Marquis | May 6, 2018 at 2:12pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/fox-news-worst-punishment-cnn/

Of the three major cable news networks, Fox News Channel obviously leans to the right but provides fairly balanced coverage of the news of the day. MSNBC, meanwhile, openly presents itself as left-leaning and provides equally left-leaning news coverage to their liberal viewers. CNN, however, has attempted to portray itself as unbiased and centrist as a media organization, but its news coverage quite obviously skews toward the left. It appears a significant number of viewers have taken notice and are no longer watching based on recent ratings numbers, according to Breitbart.

In fact, the highest-rated primetime program on CNN fell short of the lowest-rated primetime program on FNC, and even lost to a handful of Fox’s afternoon and morning programs.

Those dismal numbers for CNN were revealed in Adweek‘s report of the ratings by Nielsen Media Research for the month of April, numbers that have Fox and MSNBC cheering while CNN looks on from afar.

The best-rated weeknight show for CNN — “Anderson Cooper 360” — placed a distant 24th on the list of most-watched cable news programs. Meanwhile, the lowest-rated Fox News program in the evenings was “Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream,” which came in at 13th on the list.

Much to the dismay of liberals, Fox’s Sean Hannity came in at No. 1 in both total viewers and among the coveted advertising demographic of adults aged 25-54. Hannity was followed by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in both categories, and the top five in total viewers was rounded out by Fox’s Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. Carlson and Ingraham swapped spots in the top five among the key demo.

Spots six through 10 for total viewers were filled respectively by Fox’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “The Five,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” and “Hardball with Chris Matthews.”

Hilariously, morning programs for Fox like “America’s Newsroom” (12th), “Fox and Friends” (14th), “Outnumbered” (16th) and “Happening Now” (18th) all beat CNN’s top-rated show.

Even mid-afternoon Fox programming like “Your World with Neil Cavuto” (17th), “Shepard Smith Reporting” (20th), “Outnumbered Overtime” (22nd) and “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” (23rd) ranked higher in total viewers than Cooper’s program on CNN.

Following Cooper for the most-watched CNN programs at all times of the day within the top 40 were “Erin Burnett Out Front” (27th) and “CNN Tonight” (28th), along with “The Lead with Jake Tapper” (32nd), “Situation Room” (33rd), “CNN Newsroom” (37), “Wolf” (38th), “Inside Politics” (39th) and “At This Hour” (40).

The only Fox News Channel program that CNN beat in terms of total viewers was “Fox and Friends First,” which ranked 42nd on the list — and airs at 4 a.m. Eastern!

The only saving grace among this horrible news for CNN is that they did slightly better among the key 25-54 demo than among total viewers, as Cooper’s show ranked 12th, though he still lost out to Bream’s program — which airs late at 11 p.m. Eastern — which came in at 11th on the list among the demo coveted by advertisers.

In Nielsen’s tally of viewership of all cable networks, not just cable news channels, Fox still emerged as the most-watched cable channel both in primetime and the daytime.

Turner Network Television, which has been airing NBA playoff games since mid April, came in second for total primetime viewers, followed closely by MSNBC in third place. CNN ranked eighth in total primetime viewers for the month, losing out to cable networks such as TBS, HGTV, ESPN and the USA Network.

So perhaps this should be a lesson to any network that purports to be unbiased in its coverage, but is blatantly left-leaning and caters exclusively to liberal Trump-haters with its news coverage. It quickly becomes irrelevant and loses out “bigly” to its competition.

MSNBC Asks Franklin Graham About Trump’s “Sin Problem,” So He Brings Up Obama


Reported by Steven Beyer | January 24, 2018 at 4:05pm

If there’s one network that shouldn’t be questioning someone’s morality, it’s most definitely MSNBC. The hypocrisy

See the source image

Evangelist Franklin Graham

and bias that spews from that network is second to none. So, when they began to question the morality of President Donald Trump, evangelist Franklin Graham had a few words for them.

Over the weekend, son of famous evangelist Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, appeared on MSNBC. Over the course of a fairly lengthy interview, host Alex Witt asked Graham a series of questions regarding President Trump and his policies.

But then, in what would appear to be a “gotcha” question, Witt asked Graham if Trump had a “sin problem.” She recounted the “Access Hollywood” tape and even the porn star with whom Trump allegedly had an affair (an accusation that has yet to be proven).

“I can promise you, he is not President Perfect…and I don’t think I’ve seen a President Perfect yet,” Graham began.

He continued, “He’s not a perfect person, and neither am I.”

His comments in response to the “sin problem” question start at approximately 5:11:

Graham said he’s not holding the president up as the pastor of this country, and that he appreciates the fact that the president has a concern for Christians in this country and around the world. He also said he continues to pray for the president on a continual basis.

Witt then tried to trap Graham by asking, “If he were a Democrat, you would be as forgiving?”

“Sure. Under President Obama, I prayed for him,” Graham recounted. But then, he dropped a nuke. He said that he prayed for Obama even after he, Graham, was targeted by the Obama administration.

Graham’s Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse and Billy Graham were both targeted with IRS audits because they wouldn’t support Obama due to his stance on abortion and same-sex marriage. How does Graham know he was targeted? Both organization got the same IRS audit letter on the very same day. Graham says that it cost him a lot of money to deal with the audit. However, he said that despite being audited, it didn’t stop him from “praying for the man.” This isn’t the first time Graham has said that he prayed for Obama.

In fact, in a Thanksgiving message, Graham told his supporters, “Having just come through a divisive national election, I am urging pastors across this country to lead their congregations in praying daily for our president, Barack Obama … for wisdom, Divine guidance, and that God would accomplish His will and purposes.”

“While politics is noticeably partisan, prayer must never be partisan. Americans need to come together, and people of faith should lead the way, by praying diligently for our leaders, whether or not they agree with them or their policies,” he continued.

Graham also went on Fox News on Sunday and said that Trump has done more to defend Christianity than any other president in modern history.

“I find him to be a person concerned about the religious freedoms of Americans, but not just us here in this country, but he’s concerned about the religious freedom of people in other countries,” he said.

So, is President Trump the perfect president? No. But like Graham said, there has never been a perfect president, and there never will be.

Although if you ask liberals, I’m sure they would give you a couple of contenders for a “President Perfect.” But then again, liberals are living in a world quite disconnected from reality.

MSNBC Guest: Hurricane Harvey A ‘Man-Made Disaster’ [VIDEO]


Reported by Photo of Amber Athey Amber Athey | Media Reporter | 5:05 PM 08/31/2017

An MSNBC guest asserted Thursday that natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Katrina are actually “man-made disasters.”

Rick Stengel, former under secretary of state for public diplomacy, blamed politicians and city planners for the extent of the damage caused by Harvey and Katrina.

“Part of the problem with Harvey, like Katrina, is these are man-made disasters in part because the thousands of buildings that have been built in Houston on flood plains–on 100 year flood plains–over the past ten years, these are public officials and unregulated expansion that has made this area vulnerable,” Stengel claimed.

Stengel then seemed to criticize the plan of officials to rebuild the city of Houston “bigger and better” after the flooding subsides.

 

“To me, it’s not about building bigger and better, it’s about building to a 500 and 1000 year plan like Amsterdam and other cities are built,” he said.
