THREAD: Here's screenshots for all nine tweets in this deranged thread in case they delete it. They claim they're being misrepresented, but they made clear that this is who the left is, has been, and will continue to be as we head into ACB's confirmation fight.
Still not making it any better, Dana!
Have a nice night! Conservatives will rally around ACB through stories like this and there's no doubt others will as well when they see vile takes like this as they become more voluminous in the days and weeks to come.
Sticking with MSNBC, Kristine Marsh flagged this. You would think the left would mock this mercilessly if it happened on FNC after a conservative's death #RIPRBG -> NY Mag writer starts crying at 'horrifying' reality Supreme Court could overturn Roe newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/krist…
Stelter spoke with two town hall questioners and under the guise of "normal people," what he's doing (as are his CNN pals) is ostracize those not on their side and voting for Biden in the worst possible way. If you're not speaking "the truth," you're the problem. It's poisonous.
For people like Brian, there's no opposing view (well, there is, but you're evil and/or stupid). In their world, why would any decent, good, kind person want to vote for Trump, let alone Republicans? It's an ugly approach to news CNN has decided to embark on. But that's Zucker!
In contrast, here's how Oliver Darcy (Brian had the day off) recapped CNN's #BidenTownHall. Not only are they dangerous, it's hard to overstate how hateful these two are toward Fox and how nothing would make them happier than sending Fox employees to the unemployment lines
Going to bed absolutely heartbroken and truly saddened by the rioting in my beloved hometown of Lancaster. The national media's friends in Antifa and BLM are causing chaos in the county where generations on both sides of my family tree have grown up and still live.
We love the Lord, respect law enforcement, and believe in values of camaraderie, faith, hard-work, honesty, and respect. I knew plenty that were different from me and I loved them all the same. This is not who we are as Lancastrians.
Facts matter here. The body camera says it all. And yet, the mob has come to the Red Rose City. And I couldn't me any more despondent over that.
Every network's live coverage of 9/11 as it happened is chilling, but one that's so difficult to watch (and also worth watching) is Fox News's coverage. Rick Leventhal, Jon Scott, and Eric Shawn were on-air when the second tower fell. #NeverForget
"Oh, there it goes! There it goes! There it goes! There it goes! Oh, alright. We do need to put it down now. I think we need to put it down now. Here we go," shouted Leventhal, telling his team to put the camera down as the 2nd tower fell so they could run to safety. #NeverForget
You hear them put it down in the street and then the rush as the tower collapsed. Scott and Shawan laid back and didn't say a word, so all you hear is the crushing sound amidst the sirens.
Scott eventually comes in, but only to say: "America, offer a prayer."
Okay, time for a serious tweet. Today (September 10) was #WorldSuicidePreventionDay and so I want to re-up two threads (one is inside the other) sharing a few highlights of my mental health journey. This has been a really difficult time for so many.
Since both threads (from May '20 and June '18), I've had setbacks and struggles. I say that because mental health isn't something that simply ends and disappears. It's something you constantly work at and anything (or anyone) can send you back #WorldSuicidePreventionDay
My DMs are open and I'm always willing to talk, in part because often times I didn't feel like (and knew) I had people in my corner or at least ones that was educated about, could grapple with, and/or understand mental health. #WorldSuicidePreventionDay
I know this is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay and I say this with total sincerity because I take it issue seriously -- CNN and MSNBC is bad for your mental health. Joy Reid, Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta, Brianna Keilar, Chris Hayes, etc. WANT you to be in a mentally-crippled state.
If you're scared for your life, hiding under your bed, afraid to go outside, and thus struggling with your mental faculties, then CNN and MSNBC will see their job as successful.
They talk about Trump as the ultimate fear-mongerer, but every story casting doubt on the vaccine, suggesting Trump doesn't care about you, six feet might not be enough for social distancing, the mere act of going outside could kill you, it's all meant to cripple you in fear.
Great thread from Nick about the premiere of #NewsNationNow. I haven't been watching this premiere as closely as he has, but what I have seen squares w/this CNN (specifically @brianstelter and @oliverdarcy) melt down like kids in a store over Fox covering more then 1-3 stories...
...a day and, if they're consistent, will HATE #NewsNationNow. They all but demand news outlets function like CNN in both obsessing over only a few news stories a day (Trump-centric, of course), offer snarky chyrons, & only offer one side of a story that they argue is the truth.
It's honestly refreshing to see a news show that covers a very large variety of stories because, after all, there is a life outside of Trump, D.C., and New York City. A story like #OperationNotForgotten is maybe the best example of that. #NewsNationNow
WHAT just happened on MSNBC? Just as the Wisconsin Lt. Governor finished an answer during an interview with Joy Reid on #TheReidOut, the screen immediately went to black and into a commercial break
And we have an answer. Joy Reid returns from break on #TheReidOut to say that there were some technical "gremlins" and apologizes for cutting off the interview with Wisconsin's Lt. Gov.
But wait, there's more! While going to break to mock the notion (a correct one, as well) that Biden is being controlled by his far-left staff and activists, Joy brought out some haunted house-like sound effects.
This is the front page of Saturday's Washington Post with March on Washington at the center. There's not a word on the front here (pre-jump) lecturing about how thousands were on the Mall and were not socially distanced.
It's like the media don't truly care about COVID measures.
Well, look at that!! Paragraph 12 mentions and condemns the lack of social distancing....at the White House Thursday night, NOT the March on Washington
Ah, paragraph 31 wants us to know that it was ALL above board and, I guess because the virus likes the BLM movement, this kind of event is allowed. Even though fever isn't the guaranteed indicator we thought and just masks doesn't mitigate risk, temperature checks made it safe!
Nothing from the cables yet on Chadwick Boseman's passing. Don Lemon is melting down over Trump and Katy Tur (in for Lawrence O'Donnell) has been bemoaning the Trump rally and RNC crowds as unsafe but not anywhere near the same concern for the March on Washington.
Still nothing across the board. CNN is talking about Kenosha, FNC talked about COVID, and MSNBC interviewing Adam Schiff to talk about Russia. As far as I could tell, it looks like CNN and MSNBC are live.
Fox News gets to Chadwick Boseman's passing first with a live news update at 10:34 p.m. Easterm from Ashley Strohmier since Laura Ingraham was presumably taped earlier tonight.
Short thread during my night of RNC blogs: This is wrong on infinite levels. The sexism women face in the workplace (and in public) by too many people (mostly men, but I'll add teenagers & some women). @SarahGABC27 is devastated & I don't even know her, but this is heartbreaking.
No one deserves to be treated this way and ridiculed in public. And let's be real, folks -- we've all had bad things happen to us in public or (while it's not this at all) times where we figuratively punch ourselves. If nothing's happened to you in public, you're certainly lying.
More specifically, @SarahGABC27 has always come off as both a solid journalist and even better person. And for those of us that either still live in or grew up in central PA, we're very lucky to have four great local TV stations with even better people.
Thread: So get a load of this -- I decided to take the six Obama cabinet members @jimgeraghty tweeted out photos of having spoken at the 2012 DNC and feed their names in a Nexis search for the network morning and evening and Sunday shows (ABC, CBS, and NBC).
Some had fairly uncommon last names (e.g. Vilsack), but others had common names (e.g. Arne Duncan), so I did their first and last names and spanned the week of the DNC. I used a full eight days so as to catch anything from Sunday, September 9 that might have had a recap.
My results? Two results (and one duplicate). Both were for then-HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. One was a Romney adviser mentioning her on @ThisWeekABC in a debate on welfare reform and the other from @NBCNightlyNews playing a clip of her speech talking about Medicare.
Mini-thread: My Mom and Dad @Ahouck610 woke up to this far-left message stabbed on an American flag attached to a soldier figurine at their front door in PA. In a neighborhood of Biden, BLM, and "Hate Has No Home Here" signs, my parents dare to have multiple 🇺🇸 flying out front
In other words, their crime? Supporting our LEOs, troops, and the candidates of their choice. They did not have a Ring video doorbell (but they ordered one today). Police were notified and a neighbor happened to see the suspect so police got a description.
