Some stories from yesterday that you may have not seen on the MSM.
Mika Proves Our Point
Following up on our column yesterday about the MSM here’s a dandy. Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC Morning Joe actually said this Wednesday.
“Controlling exactly what people think is the job of the media”.
Notice she didn’t say presenting the facts so people can decide. She said controling “what people think”. Proves our point yesterday.
She by the way is the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski former NSC head under President Jimmy Carter and an avowed liberal.
Here’s a link to the story if you want more.
Unfair and Biased
Here’s another MSNBC story that illustrates bias. Imagine if a Republican Congress person called Obama cabinet members what Maxine Waters did on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes”. She read off a list of people connected to the Trump team, who she said, also have connections to Russia and the oil and gas industry. Then she went on to call the Trump administration a “bunch of scumbags”. You read that right. On live TV. Did it get coverage?
Did you hear about this Guantanamo Bay releasee?
Ronald Fiddler, known as Abu Zakariya al-Britani, was a released Guantanamo Bay detainee. This weekend he blew himself up near the Iraqi city of Mosul, in an attack targeting coalition forces containing embedded British and American Special Forces advisers.
He won’t be the last released terrorist you hear about. We got lucky here in that he didn’t kill any of our brave soldiers.
Trump has promised to keep the camp open and add some “guests” to it.
Democrats pick a new party leader this weekend
Democrats gather this week to pick a new leader and the two front runners are left and far left. They are Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) and former Labor secretary Tom Perez. Take your choice, here’s who’s backing them
Ellison, the first Muslim congressman, has the backing of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s coalition including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Perez, the former Obama administration Labor secretary has former Vice President Joe Biden and former Attorney General Eric Holder in his corner.
The race hasn’t gotten much MSM attention but it has been nasty. As an example, after Biden endorsed Perez, Sanders put out an unsolicited statement panning Perez and Biden as part of the “failed status quo”.
For their part Perez supporters have expressed concern about handing the party over to the Sanders wing of the party, arguing that Ellison would move the party “too far to the left”.
Imagine that, Democrats worried about moving too far left.
Border Crossings Are Down — Who Knew?
Who knew this, I didn’t see it on the MSM. Law enforcement said the number of people crossing the border illegally is on the decline. Deputies noticed a decrease in people crossing towards the end of January.
Big News Events Ahead
Buckle up for for big news events that will have the MSM excited.
Yesterday Secretary Tillerson and Homeland Security’s General Kelly began a trip to Mexico. Ready to hear all about the damaged relationship?
Trumps revised Travel Ban is expected Friday. Sure to be explosive.
Trump scheduled to speak before congress next week. Democrats already planning to put on a show. Stay tuned for this.
No quiet days ahead. An action President, an angry opposition party, a hostile media and a divided country guarantee busy news days.
