Obsessed mainstream media continue to repeat their biased mistakes

Truth or CNN?

The Media Research Center (MRC) mission “to create a media culture in America where truth and liberty flourish” was kicked into high gear Thursday with their reports on the liberal mainstream media this week.

Many climate change alarmists were in full panic mode on Wednesday after scientists announced that a truly massive sheet of ice weighing 1 trillion tons and the size of Delaware had finally broken off of the continent. The fear continued during the evening broadcasts of the Big Three Networks as ABC and NBC were more than happy to contribute to the hysteria. “At the bottom of the world tonight a massive fracture on the continent of Antarctica has caused one of the biggest icebergs on record to break away into the ocean. It’s so big it could fill Lake Erie twice over,” hyped Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News.

“Commenters below the line on news stories frequently wonder how it can be true that Antarctica is melting and contributing to sea-level rise, when satellite observations show Antarctic ice expanding,” reported The Conversation.com. “…but it’s not the size of the iceberg that should be getting attention. Icebergs calve all the time, including the occasional very large one, with nothing to worry about. Icebergs have only a tiny direct effect on sea level.”

In their Daily Cyber Alert, MRC reported the following media articles.

1. Consumed: CNN’s New Day Spends 93% of Airtime on Russia

As CNN continues their crusade to bring down the Trump presidency, New Day spent 93 percent of their three-hour program Wednesday covering Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump campaign’s supposed collusion with Russia. The other seven percent was spent on baseball (~1.5%) and negative coverage of the GOP’s healthcare bill (~5.5%).​​​​

“No one is arguing that this revelation should not be covered, but when you spend 93 percent of your time talking about it, it shows an obsession, not an objective news judgment,” Media Research Center stated. “The same liberal media spent virtually no time seriously covering the supposed collusion between Bill Clinton and the Red Chinese in Clinton’s ’96 re-election bid. They ignored the potentially corrupt behavior by the Clinton Foundation for years. Yet, when there is even a sniff of scandal surrounding a Republican, they pounce with hysterical outrage.”

2. Mitchell, Williams Have No Idea DNC Solicited Info From Ukraine to Help Clinton


On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.

3. CNN’s Historian Smears ‘Mafioso’ Trump Family, White House Staff ‘Embarrassed’


Following the reports on Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails earlier in the week, the media have put greater focus on President Trump’s close-knit family. So late Wednesday night, during CNN Tonight, the network’s Presidential Historian Douglas Brinkley went on an angry rant where he railed against the Trumps as a family. And in addition, made baseless accusations about what White House staffers thought about them and their desire to work there.

“With that kind of disgusting mudslinging coming from a so-called presidential historian, it’s no wonder CNN’s credibility is in the gutter,” MRC commented. “It’s one thing to want historical context for current events, that’s important, but to have the historian smearing the family of a sitting president, that’s something far different and damaging to journalism.”

4. Seriously? MSNBC Consults Disgraced Dan Rather on ‘Ethics’


In MSNBC’s search for a spokesman of sacrosanct ethics and patriotism, they turned to an unlikely source: Dan Rather. The fake news forefather joined Chris Hayes on his Tuesday All In program, opining that lying by Trump Jr. and other Trump officials raised “a real ethical question” about their character. Moreover, he argued, it lead to very real questions about their “patriotism.”

5. CNN’s Sidner Highlights CA Hate Crime Increase, Ignores General Crime Spike

On Monday’s CNN Tonight, correspondent Sara Sidner recalled reports of an 11 percent increase in hate crimes in California, but did not put into context that the state has recently suffered a general increase in violent crime — that is about in line with the hate crime increase — that has been linked to the release of many formerly incarcerated criminals.
