Blatant media bias: MSNBC’s Joy Reid is a whore for Hillary

The liberal MSM are now blatantly, in-your-face partisan. They no longer even bother to disguise their biases.

media bias Trump vs. Clinton

The latest example: Last Sunday, July 31, 2016, MSNBC host Joy Reid shouts down invited guest Amy Kremer, former chair of the Tea Party Express.

Kremer says 33,000 of Hillary’s emails, when she was secretary of state, are missing.

Beginning at the 0:18 mark, Reid talks over Kremer, saying “It’s not like that at all,” while Kremer tries to continue, saying what really scares her is that those emails “are out there somewhere…and we could have a president [Hillary] that could be blackmailed.”

Reid said, “Hold on, you can’t just invent things…. FBI has already come out with a report on Hillary Clinton’s emails. What you just said is an invented thing! There’s no 33,000 emails that are going to harm our national security…. You can’t make things up.”

As Kremer tries to speak, Reid keeps interrupting and talking over her, saying “No, ma’am. You cannot invent things!”

Joy Reid, you are an idiot.

Before Hillary Clinton turned in the emails from the private email server she had unlawfully used when she was secretary of state, she had thousands of them deleted. Those are the 30,322 emails that were hacked, which Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks has been releasing.

Here’s WikiLeaksHillary Clinton Email Archive.

No wonder a recent poll found that only 6% of Americans say they trust the media. They must be the only people who still watch MSNBC/CNN.

Trump’s hacked voicemails reveal hypocrisy of media

On December 12, 2015, a day after “declaring war” on Donald Trump after he announced plans to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., members of Anonymous, the loose group of hackers and activists, hacked into Trump’s voicemail and took his website offline for around an hour.

Trump is now attacked and reviled by the media for his stance on issues such as illegal immigrants and Muslim refugees, but his voicemails show that the same media were singing his praises in 2012.

Ministry of Truth

Matt Broomfield reports for the (UK) Independent, March 5, 2016, that Trump’s hacked voicemail messages from 2012 “show leading figures in the US media showering him with praise, compliments, and thanks for his financial support.” Those leading figures include MSNBC news anchors Joe Scarborough, Mike Brzezinski, and Tamron Hall.

Scarborough and Brzezinski had cross-examined Trump on several occasions during the Republican primary campaign. Both can be heard in the voicemails profusely thanking Trump for his donation to a charity event:

  • Scarborough says: “We are so, so grateful for everything, Donald, and we just want to call you and tell you how much it means to us.”
  • Brzezinski also thanks Trump for his donation, saying, “You must be, like, on your jet or something. We’d love to talk to you.”

A woman identifying herself as “T Hall”, believed to be MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, can be heard on the recording saying she was going to use Trump’s discount in a luxury clothing store. She says: “I celebrated by going to Gucci, and I’m going to use your discount, because there’s a green dress that’s like $3,000, and I need a discount bigger than . . . my discount.”

Reacting to the hacked voicemails, Scarborough sarcastically confirmed the authenticity of the messages in which he can be heard speaking. He writes: “Oh my God. I just read the transcripts! Trump must have contributed to a children’s charity. Scandalous!!!! Should Mika and I now apologize for raising money for children’s charities from rich people?”

Barack Obama’s aide David Axelrod can also be heard thanking Trump for donating to his epilepsy charity. Other celebrities who can be heard speaking in a friendly, personal manner to Trump include American football star Tom Brady and boxing promoter Don King.

Chris Matthews’ guests have donated to his wife’s campaign – and he didn’t bother to mention that to his viewers

Shocker, not.christ and kathleen matthews

MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews isn’t much for keeping his promises of transparency when it involves political contributions to his wife’s congressional campaign, reports the NY Post.

Last June, the commentator insisted on his show that he would be “transparent and fair in our coverage” after his wife, Kathleen, announced that she was running as a Democrat for the open seat in Maryland’s 8th District.

Since then, Kathleen Matthews, a former news anchor and Marriott exec, has received a total of $79,050 in campaign contributions from prominent former and current politicians featured on her husband’s long-running cable-news show.

“As a journalist, I also know how important it is to respect certain boundaries on my support for her both in my public role and here on MSNBC,” her husband said on his program. “And while most of you know that our show doesn’t typically cover congressional races, I will continue to fully disclose my relationship with her as part of MSNBC’s commitment to being transparent and fair in our coverage,” added Matthews.

But Matthews, who has made glowing references to Kathleen on his show without mentioning her campaign, hasn’t uttered a word about the contributions his 62-year-old wife has received from his TV guests.

The revelation is another black eye for NBC, which bounced Brian Williams as anchor of the network news last year and dispatched him to MSNBC after he fabricated details of stories he covered.

The Intercept, which broke the story of the “Hardball” campaign connection Friday, compiled a laundry list of questionable donations. It showed some political heavyweights making contributions just ­before or after their appearances on the show.

The political action committee for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) gave $10,000 to Kathleen’s campaign on June 20, 2015 — two days before Gillibrand appeared on “Hardball.” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) contributed $1,000 on Jan. 11, 2016, one day before she was interviewed on the program.  Chris Matthews’ guests, their spouses or their PACs donated $79,050 as of Dec. 31 — about 5 percent of the $1.5 million Kathleen had raised as of then. At least 11 of the donations came from guests after they ­appeared on Matthews’ show.

Paul Pelosi, husband of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), put $1,000 into Kathleen’s coffers. Jackie Clegg-Dodd, wife of Chris Dodd, a former Connecticut senator and president of the Motion Picture Association of America, gave $500. Dick Blum, husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), maxed out with a $2,700 donation.

MSNBC issued a statement saying it “does not book guests on the basis of political contributions. That would violate not only our ethical obligation as journalists, but also violate the standards of NBC News.” Chris Matthews did not return calls for comment.

“Working women know it is possible to have their own career and not depend on their spouse for success,” said Kathleen Matthews’ campaign manager, Ethan Susseles.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry walks off her show because she feels ‘worthless’ after being sidelined

Somebody call her a wahmbulance.

crybaby

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry has walked off her show, citing frustrations with the network’s treatment and a loss of control over the program’s content. Harris-Perry, whose show airs on both Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to noon, is refusing to host this weekend after being sidelined for two weeks, the Daily Mail reports.

In a letter to her colleagues published on Medium, she wrote that she was deemed ‘worthless’ by the network, and fought back by saying: ‘I will not be used as a tool for their purposes. I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head.

In a later interview with the New York Times, Ms. Harris-Perry clarified her comments and took the focus off her race. She said: ‘I don’t think anyone is doing something mean to me because I’m a black person.’ Harris-Perry wrote that her show was ‘effectively and utterly silenced’ during the presidential election, and that she refused to return this weekend as MSNBC had requested.

She said: ‘Now, MSNBC would like me to appear for four inconsequential hours to read news that they deem relevant without returning to our team any of the editorial control and authority that makes MHP Show distinctive.’

"Meaningful" work, apparently...

“Meaningful” work, apparently…

The political commentator, author, and professor at Wake Forest University also shared that she had been staying in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, but failed to receive any communication from executives about contributing to MSNBC’s coverage along the campaign trail. She wrote: ‘While MSNBC may believe that I am worthless, I know better. I will not sell short myself or this show.  I am not hungry for empty airtime. I care only about substantive, meaningful and autonomous work. When we can do that, I will return- not a moment earlier.’

An NBC News spokesman issued a statement that read: ‘In this exciting and unpredictable presidential primary season, many of our daytime programs have been temporarily upended by breaking political coverage, including M.H.P. This reaction is really surprising, confusing and disappointing.’

The Melissa Harris-Perry Show, which aired in 2012, is known for its inclusion of underrepresented commentators in addressing issues like social justice and diversity. Harris-Perry said if MSNBC wanted to cancel the show, she would prefer that they do it outright rather than fading it out.  It is unclear whether the show is being canceled, but it has been noted that Harris-Perry has removed the show from her Twitter bio.

It was also reported in April that the 42-year-old and her husband, James Perry, owed about $70,000 after the IRS filed a tax lien. Harris Perry told the Winston-Salem Journal that she and her husband had paid more than $21,000 of the debt back, and that ‘personal crises’ had slowed them down. She wrote: ‘We were aware that we would continue to need to work to pay off the 2013 debt.’

San Bernardino mass shooting: MSNBC reporter calls shooters “actors”

In this MSNBC video of yesterday’s San Bernardino mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center, a man’s voice (the reporter? news anchor?) can be heard referring to the reported three suspects as “actors” — not suspects:

“Oh, that’s extremely deadly situation, going to the conference area, just shooting innocent people. You know, it’s a miracle sometimes we just don’t have more deaths in these things. This is an unbelievably horrible case. But it looks like the three ACTORS have been caught, so the day of bad news, there’s a little tidbit of good news. The three ACTORS have been caught.”

Here’s another video with the same male voice calling the suspects “actors”:

By the way, police now say there were two, not three, shooters. Both are now dead, killed in a police shootout. See “San Bernardino mass shooting: 2 suspects with Arabic names dead“.

Mass shootings have skyrocketed 700% under Obama, we should all ask why.

Four MSNBC Hosts Owe Tax Debts

 

msnbc

THR: Touré Neblett, co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, is the latest network host to be under scrutiny for owing thousands in taxes. 

According to public records reviewed by National Review, Neblett’s debt currently stands at over $59,000. A state tax warrant of $46,862.68 was issued to the host and his wife in September 2013, followed by an additional warrant for $12,849.87 six months later. Neblett formerly served as a contributor for The Dylan Ratigan Show before it was canceled by the network in 2012.

He joins three other MSNBC hosts who have also reportedly been issued tax warrants or liens, including Joy Ann-Reid, Melissa Harris-Perry and Al Sharpton.

National Review reports that the state of New York filed a tax warrant against Reid, who has been a contributor for the network since 2011, and her husband for the amount of $4,948.15 last month. Reid hosted The Reid Report for a full year — from February 2014 until its early cancelation in February 2015.

Just last week, the Winston-Salem Journal also reported that Harris-Perry, who has hosted the political commentary program Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC since 2012, and husband James Perry owed $70,000 in delinquent taxes ($21,721 of which was paid off on Tax Day, Harris-Perry told the newspaper).

Sharpton’s financial run-ins with the IRS surfaced back in November 2014, as reported by The New York Times. The Times estimated that Sharpton, host of political talk show PoliticsNation since 2011, and his combined businesses owed around $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens.

An MSNBC spokesperson declined to comment on the reports.
