In this week’s Wacky Moments of Leftist Extremism:
MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan was more upset at Republicans than Governor Andrew Cuomo, on Tuesday, calling Cuomo’s resignation a “sad day for the Democrat party” but a “ a sadder day for American democracy.” Uh-huh.
Aside from the sexual abuse allegations, “many” think Andrew Cuomo handled issues like Covid “masterfully.” That was the totally out-of-touch claim from CBS This Morning journalist Ed O’Keefe on Wednesday as he tried to spin the legacy of the disgraced governor. O’Keefe, of course, made no mention of the Democrat’s disastrous decision to kill thousands by placing Covid-positive patients into nursing homes.
The Taliban swept through Afghanistan on Wednesday, taking major cities. And while the networks all gave that substantial coverage on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, one person was mostly missing: Joe Biden. The evening newscasts and morning shows barely mentioned the President of the United States, just 28 seconds.
Appearing on New Day Friday morning, Don Lemon reported on his "birth" hospital overrun with COVID patients and claimed “attacks on journalism” were responsible for the spike in cases – if only people would trust CNN, things would be okay. What Lemon won’t acknowledge is that the media’s bias has been evident throughout their reporting on the pandemic, from squashing the lab leak theory, to calling blaming China for the virus, racist, and excusing anti-vaccine comments from Democrats before the election.
