PELOSI: “Well, I’m not the wall’s biggest advocate in Congress, but I do know that representatives in the House and Senators in that body from the border wall areas have some serious objection to a wall because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all of the other aspects of a border.” But again, let’s sit down and talk things through and see what makes sense. Not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it. That’s never going to happen. Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do, or mowing the grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass, that’s something, levies, technology, personnel.”
A spokeswoman for Scott’s office confirmed to The Hill that protesters delivered a petition and demanded an audience with Scott, who was not in the office at the time. The protesters represented students calling for stricter gun control following the high school shooting in South Florida last week.
Scott’s office confirmed to The Hill that the governor on Wednesday attended a funeral for one of the 17 people killed in last Wednesday’s shooting, and plans to meet with groups of student protesters at 5 p.m. upon returning to his office.
A private citizen received online abuse after CNN tracked her down and publicly shamed her for unknowingly sharing a “Russian-coordinated event” on her Facebook page.
While filming the woman, who runs a pro-Trump page on Facebook, CNN publicly shamed her for “unwittingly” promoting a “Russian-coordinated event.”
“When you’re talking like this, I don’t want anything to do with you,” complained the woman after being repeatedly harassed by CNN’s Special Investigations Unit Reporter Drew Griffin.
Following the incident, conservative commentators criticized CNN for tracking down and attempting to publicly shame private citizens.
“Stop harassing people at their homes, you psychos!” replied conservative YouTube star Mark Dice.
Justin Trudeau has been ridiculed on social media by Indians for his 'tacky' and over the top outfit choices while on his first visit to their nation as Prime Minister.
While many praised his clothing during the first two days of his trip, patience was wearing thin by the time he attended a Bollywood gala on Tuesday night, before the tide turned against him on Wednesday.
Ministers, authors, journalists and ordinary Indians lined up to mock him on Wednesday, saying his wardrobe was 'fake and annoying'.
Perhaps taking note of the criticism, the Canadian leader donned a suit on Thursday as he visited Jama Masjid, one of India's largest mosques.
Leading the criticism was Omar Abdullah, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, who tweeted on Wednesday saying Trudeau's preening was 'all just a bit much.'
'We Indians do not dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.'
Bhaavna Arora, a bestselling Indian author, also chimed in, accusing Trudeau of wearing 'fancy dress' and saying she found it 'fake and annoying'.
Shekhar Gupta, founder of Indian newspaper ThePrint also mocked the Canadian Prime Minister, accusing him of 'running a week-long “election campaign” in India in fancy dress.'
The crowd at a Wednesday CNN town hall on the Parkland shooting booed when NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch brought up a rape survivor who supports the Second Amendment.
Kimberly Corban was raped when she was under 21 years old and is an outspoken supporter of the Second Amendment, saying she wishes she could have tried to fight off her attacker with a firearm.
Loesch referenced Corban’s case as a reason why the NRA is reluctant to support a measure that raises the minimum age at which people can buy guns to 21.
“But I also think of young women, and you’ve had a previous town hall where you spoke with a young woman named Kim Corban, who was a college student who was brutally raped in her dorm and she was under the age of 21,” Loesch said, referencing a CNN town hall where Corban asked a question of then-President Obama.
“And one of the things that she speaks out about loudly now is how she wished she would have had the ability to have some sort — a shotgun, whatever it was, to be able to defend herself,” Loesch explained, before being cut off by the crowd’s boos.
The crowd continued to loudly jeer as Loesch tried to explain her position on the age requirement, arguing that if one is old enough to drive a car or serve in the military they should also be able to buy a weapon.
NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said Thursday morning at CPAC that she wouldn't have been able to exit last night's town hall on the Parkland, Fla. school shooting if she didn't have a security detail. Loesch faced off with students who survived the shooting at a CNN-hosted forum.
"I want to make this super obvious point," Loesch said. "The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people."
"I had to have a security detail to get out," she said of the Sunland, Fla. event. "I wouldn't be able to exit that if I didn't have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive."
Loesch said the people who call Trump a tyrant are the same people who want the president to confiscate weapons.
"The government can't keep you safe and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that's already failed us numerous times to keep us safe. And then they also call Trump a tyrant but they say they want the president to also confiscate our firearms? Try to figure that one out," Loesch said.
In order to fit in with the sterile, pre-packaged scripted fake media driven world we live in today, CNN staged every aspect of last night’s Democratic debate, planting prepared questions in the audience, and even having them practice clapping the candidates before the “show” began.
Politicians, and particularly Presidents, are supposed to be able to react on the fly to the most unexpected of events and situations, but it seems that we’re now firmly in the age of the teleprompter President.
Rarely anything you see anymore is spontaneous or improvised. Everything HAS to go off exactly as planned and without a hitch. Everything is one giant PR program designed to hook mainstream America in and deliver exactly what the powers that be think it wants.
Which is exactly what happened during another snorefest of a Democratic debate presented by CNN.
Before the candidates even took to the stage, CNN had the audience practice applauding, as Anderson Cooper alluded to during the monotonous hours long “build up,” now a mind numbing aspect of every major vacuous TV presentation of the modern day.
Listen to the word to word exact answers given by CNN justice correspondence at different time on CNN, so even the answers given to the questions are read from a Precompiled script.
“Interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile sent information to a top Clinton campaign official about an upcoming a question she got "in advance" one day before a very similar question was asked at a CNN Town Hall, according to hacked emails published by WikiLeaks.
On March 12, Brazile — who at the time was DNC vice chair and a CNN and ABC contributor — wrote Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri an email reading "From time to time I get the questions in advance."
"Here's one that worries me about HRC," Brazile wrote.
"DEATH PENALTY 19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?"
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall but decided not to after the network gave him a "scripted question," quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. (CNN response below.)
"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV.
CNN aired a town hall on the Florida school shooting with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) that included NRA's Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel that was moderated by Jake Tapper. Students and parents asked questions about gun control and school safety.
"I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions," Haab said.
"Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates in the midst of terror says he did not get to share his experience," WPLG's Janine Stanwood explained.
"Colton wrote questions about school safety, suggested using veterans as armed school security guards but claims CNN wanted him to ask a scripted question instead so he decided not to go," Stanwood reported.
"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab said. "I don't think that it's going get anything accomplished. It's not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have."
Survivors of the Parkland shooting and their parents begged President Donald Trump to act on gun violence Wednesday at a tearful listening session at the White House.
Parkland parent Andrew Pollack said that he was 'pissed' as he described his daughter Meadow's horrific death to the president and other families present - she was shot nine times.
'I'm very angry that this happened, because it keeps happening,' the bereaved father said, declaring that 9/11 'happened once, and they fixed everything. How many schools, how many children have to get shot?'
Pollack told Trump, 'It stops here with this administration and me. I'm not going to sleep until it's fixed. And Mr. President, we're going to fix it. Because I'm going to fix it. I'm not going to rest.'
'Fix it! It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it! And I'm pissed! Because my daughter I'm not going to see again. She's not here. She's not here. She's at, in North Lauderdale, in King David Cemetery. That's where I go to see my kid now.'
After listening to parents like Pollack for some time, Trump said he'd be looking at making concealed carry permits available to teachers, which he admitted after asking for a show of support is certainly 'controversial.'
Investigations into how an Iranian terrorist group, Hezbollah, acquired US Abrams tanks is now gaining some traction in congress. Many are concerned Obama also handed over US Military equipment sitting in Iraq after he abruptly pulled US troops out, and gave them to the Iranian regime as per request by his Top advisor, Valerie Jarrett, who is an iranian herself.
The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of downtown San Francisco in search of trash, needles, and feces. The investigation revealed trash littered across every block. The survey also found 41 blocks dotted with needles and 96 blocks sullied with piles of feces.
A California state lawmaker at the forefront of the #MeToo movement faces a growing number of sexual misconduct allegations herself. Four former employees filed a formal complaint against Democratic Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia. Another says he was fired after protesting when she suggested playing "spin the bottle."
Garcia has authored numerous bills about sexual assault and consent. She was even recently featured in Time magazine's "Persons of the Year" issue recognizing the #MeToo movement's "silence breakers." But now she is on voluntary leave, as investigators look into claims she groped two men.
Daniel Fierro was working in the California State Capitol when he said Garcia cornered him at a staff softball game.
"I remember feeling a little confused about what happened," Fierro said.
"She touched you sexually?" Villarreal asked.
"Yea, she -- her hand dropped down. She touched – she grabbed my butt. And I spun to turn around … and as I turned, she tried to reach for my crotch and she did," Fierro said.
When Villarreal asked Garcia whether Fierro's claims happened, Garcia said, "No."
"What do you remember happening that day?" Villarreal asked.
"I was at the game at the end of the game… And I left with some staff and with some members, and so I have faith that the investigation will make sure and have the facts around it and clear my name," Garcia said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stopped in Phoenix Tuesday to discuss how the “disastrous” tax cuts approved by Congress last year are impacting working families and talk trash about President Trump’s proposed budget.
But Pelosi’s hypocritical comments were apparently too much for one heckler, who called the wealthy career politician out for her duplicity at the Arizona Center for Economic Progress.
“These issues about the tax cuts and then the cuts to initiatives that help people, that’s part of the budget. The national budget should be a statement of our national values, what is important to us as a nation,” Pelosi preached. “Which makes us strong and builds for the future should be reflected in our budget.
“But what we have seen here is the complete opposite,” she claimed. “So this isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. This is about the United States of America and our children’s future. …
“It can’t possibly be a statement of values for us to talk about, as Martin Luther King said, … ‘God never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth while others live in abject deadly poverty,’” Pelosi said to applause. “So these are kitchen table issues for most of America’s families. Most people are not in deadly poverty, but some are. But most people have to struggle to …”
At least one woman wasn’t buying it and shouted from the crowd to cut Pelosi off.
“How much are you worth, Nancy?” the woman yelled.
“No, we’re not talking about that,” Pelosi shot back, raising her voice to speak over the woman. “In any event … I can out … I’m a mother of five, I can speak louder than anybody.”
Pelosi’s screed in Arizona is part of a 100-city tour organized by Democrats to frame the recent Republican tax cuts as an assault against low-income Americans in favor of the ultra-rich.
Pelosi, of course, is among the richest of the rich in Congress.
OpenSecrets.org listed Pelosi as the 6th richest member of the House in 2015, with an estimated net worth of $100,643,521. The staggering wealth makes Pelosi the seventh richest person – and richest women – in Congress.
Former New York police officer turned The Rebel journalist, John Cardillo, exposes how he witnessed and was told by firsthand accounts by students as well as their parents that the left-wing teachers of Parkland high school are currently encouraging students to attend anti-gun rallies started by anti-American left-wing billionaire George Soros and his paid stooges, the Democrats.
Listen to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino explain of the left-wing media is using well-known left-wing students in order to promote their anti- gun agenda, then attacking anyone either ignores the kids, or response to them by explaining exactly where they are long.
Yet another example of the socialist agenda being perpetrated in order to get guns out of the hands of every day Americans by using tragedies in order to promote their agenda.
David Hogg, one of the acting students recruited by the same minds behind the anti-Trump Women's March, is having trouble reciting his lines, so he gets a little bit of help from the media.
This student in particular was posting left-wing propaganda by the Center for American progress way back in 2015, a left-wing group headed by John Podesta, the known pedophile who led Hillary Clinton's 2016 election campaign.
This kid was a radical leftist long before the shooting took place, now he's using this as an opportunity to push the same propaganda those he follows pushes on a daily basis.
Via Gateway Pundit:
This afternoon, the Gateway Pundit received a tip from a father of one of the Parkland school shooter survivors. Concerned and enraged, he confirmed what Gateway Pundit previously reported: these children are being used as political tools by the far left to further anti-Conservative rhetoric and an anti-gun agenda. The students at the forefront of this agenda were all peers of his child, they were all members of the same drama club at their high school. This fact was verified and confirmed by Buzzfeed who sent a reporter to visit the student activists at their “command center” at one of their homes. Buzzfeed reported on, but left unexplored, the fact that these students are theater-trained:
“The group, who mostly know each other from the school’s theater program, began their efforts in a scattered way in the chaotic aftermath of Wednesday’s horror.”
From our source: One of the students leading the current charge called the child of our contact up and asked if they were willing to workshop Anti-Trump/Anti-Gun lines, publish on their Twitter account, and possibly go on television with a similar statement.
This particular student, a Trump supporter, shouted “F*** you!” into the receiver before hanging up.
They didn’t want to be used as yet another pawn from the left. It was conveyed that these students are acting as the “bridge” between far-left activist groups and are specifically recruiting other students from the school’s drama department.
A theatrical background easily explains these students’ comfort on camera, composure, and ability to deliver the lines they are given while framing them with emotional call-to-action rhetorical devices. We were informed that students who were pro-First Amendment and supported the president were systematically blocked from any interviews or media appearances.
Several Newsweek staffers threatened to resign earlier this week, accusing the company of attempting to muzzle the publishing of a story further detailing internal turmoil at the magazine and ties to a controversial Christian college.
On Tuesday evening, Newsweek published a story about previously unreported ties between Newsweek Media Group (which also owns International Business Times) and Olivet University’s efforts to develop a campus in upstate New York. Olivet, which is affiliated with a mysterious religious sect called “The Community,” has numerous connections to former leaders of NMG.
But not before several reporters and editors made it clear to management that they would quit if Newsweek did not publish the story.
The team of journalists including Newsweek deputy editor Ross Schneiderman, news director Cristina Silva, politics editor Michael J. Mishak, and IBT reporters Josh Keefe and Josh Saul mulled resigning in protest on Tuesday if the article was not published.
“Newsweek Media Group has made it clear it will not allow us to publish a credible, independent story about the company’s financial ties to Olivet University—even though our reporting shows the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is scrutinizing those ties as part of a long-term fraud probe,” the protesting journalists said in a letter drafted—but never sent—to management, reviewed by The Daily Beast. “For this reason, we are immediately resigning from the company.”
According to one source directly involved in the process, the editors informed acting Newsweek editor Nancy Cooper of the group‘s intention to quit.
The group had been preparing a story for weeks, and met significant headwinds from the company's management.
“Newsweek Media Group has made it clear it will not allow us to publish a credible, independent story about the company’s financial ties to Olivet University.”
The Dallas Mavericks released a statement about an hour before a scathing story was published by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday night that detailed a work culture that one former team employee called ''a real-life Animal House.''
The Mavericks said in the statement “there is no room for such conduct in the Mavericks’ workplace.”
The story describes the shocking conduct of former team president and CEO Terdema Ussery. Two women told the outlet that Ussery, who left the NBA team in 2015, made requests for sex and touched women’s legs during meetings among other forms of harassment.
Ussery, whose tenure with the team began before Mark Cuban took ownership in 2000, was subject of an internal investigation after several female employees lodged complaints in the summer of 1998, according to Sports Illustrated. Ussery's contract was renewed.
“The Dallas Mavericks have received information about behavior in our workplace that appears to have violated the organization’s standards of conduct,” the team said in the statement. “It has been alleged that a former officer of the organization engaged in various acts of inappropriate conduct toward women over a period of years. This individual left the employment of the Mavericks nearly three years ago and the Mavericks have only learned of the scope of these complaints in the past days. ... The Mavericks organization takes these allegations extremely seriously.”
Cuban called the conduct detailed in the story “abhorrent.”
“It’s not a situation we condone,” Cuban told Sports Illustrated. “I can’t tell you how many times, particularly since all this (#MeToo) stuff has been coming out recently I asked our HR director, ‘Do we have a problem? Do we have any issues I have to be aware of?’ And the answer was ‘no.’ ”
Jill Stein Downplays Russian Meddling: Media and DNC Interfered in 2016 Election Too
Days after the Russian indictments were handed down, Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC today to downplay Russian interference by pointing to American interference in the election.
She told Alex Witt the idea there was this big Russian attempt to back her campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton is absurd, saying, “This doesn’t pass the laugh test.”
She continued on to say there was “other kinds of interference,” like all the airtime the media gave Trump in 2016:
“Yes, there was Russian interference, but remember, there was very compelling interference going on by way of media, by way of the DNC––did the DNC not rig the primary?”
Yet another Libtard came up running his mouth attempting to start a fight with a Trump supporter only to end up on his ass after smacking the Trump supporters MAGA hat right off of his head, with a bit of a face slap in the process.
Michael Rapaport: “This is for Laura Ingraham, the cock-eyed FOX News with the Bobby Brown jaw who said that KD and LeBron James should just shut up and dribble. No cluckhead, you shut up and dribble these nuts, bitch… Your butt is so flat that when you stand up you can see your entire a$$hole.”
Fierce clashes erupted between student protesters and police forces in Bogota on Tuesday, after some 500 students from the Pedagogical University of Bogota held a large rally, reportedly attacking the headquarters of the Centro Democratico (Democratic Centre) party.
Welcome to socialist Venezuela, were even women are beaten and robbed by fellow women simply because they are one of the lucky ones who still have diapers.
This is what socialists such as US Sen. Bernie Sanders do not want you to see, watch as this starving young Venezuelan man cries in the streets after not being able to make it across the border to Columbia in order to find food and safety.
This is the product of what happens when socialism takes over a country, equal misery.
A message that reads “kill the NRA” has appeared on a billboard in Louisville in response to last week’s school shooting.
The billboard, which appears on Interstate 65 in Louisville, was an act of vandalism, according to Outfront Media, the business that owns the sign.
The words “Resist 45” also appear on the sign, a reference to the “resistance” movement against the presidency of Donald Trump.
A spokeswoman for Outfront Media confirmed that the sign, which has been in place since Friday, was not part of an ad buy and that it is in the process of being taken down, although there was no sign of that happening on Monday evening.
“Some commuters thought the vandalized message encouraged violence,” reports Wave 3 News.
The NRA posted an image of the banner on its official verified Facebook page.
This is by no means the only violent threat directed towards conservatives in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting.
As we reported on Friday, a far-left Facebook group openly encouraged its members to shoot Republicans as revenge for the Parkland massacre.
“Dear Crazed Shooters, The GOP has frequent baseball practice. You really wanna be remembered, that’s how you do it. Signed, Americans tired of our politicians bathing in the blood of the innocent for a few million dollars from the terrorist organization NRA,” stated one of the posts.
“You remember the shooting at the Republican baseball game?” asked another post. “One of those should happen EVERY WEEK until those NRA-funded sons of bitches do something about this.”
"Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski called for the United States to implement a gun "buyback" program modeled on Australia’s broad confiscation program enacted in 1996.
Scarborough started Tuesday by saying that a gun seller should face conspiracy charges if the buyer commits a crime with the sold gun. He said such laws would have an undefined "deterrent effect."
"Why wouldn't everybody be for doing whatever we can do to make sure that if you sell a gun, if you give a gun, if you transfer a gun to somebody who uses its in the commission of a crime, you're going to be a part of a conspiracy of that crime?" he asked. "Just whatever we can do to make sure that legal gun owners are legal gun owners and those who aren't legal gun owners are going—if they use guns for the wrong reason, there's going to be a deterrent effect."
Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post chimed in that lawmakers should make "gun makers and sellers liable like everybody else."
Brzezinski added that the government must "get the guns" to reduce gun crimes substantially. Scarborough said such confiscation is "not going to happen," but Brzezinski insisted that buyback programs and others methods are able to "get [guns] off the streets."
Scarborough then seemed to agree, citing Australia’s 1996 National Firearm Agreement, which led to the confiscation of approximately 650,000 guns declared "illegal," including semiautomatic rifles and handguns.
"You can do buyback programs, and since Australia did it in 1996, they haven't had another mass shooting," Scarborough said.
"You have to do multi-pronged," Brzezinski said without elaboration.
"It’s gotta be voluntary buyback programs," Scarborough said, not mentioning that the Australian buyback program he just praised was mandatory.
Former President Barack Obama also mentioned Australia’s program after a shooting in Roseburg, Ore. In October, Obama’s former senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer called for mandatory buybacks on the Australian model, saying the Second Amendment is an "anachronism."
MSNBC profiled Democratic candidate Andrew Janz, who is running against Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and has raised a considerable amount off of the Russian investigation, a message that Janz admitted to MSNBC doesn’t resonate with constituents of California’s 22nd Congressional District.
MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff went to California’s 22nd Congressional District to interview Janz, who claims to have raised over $500,000 after Nunes released the controversial Russia memo earlier in February.
“Janz has been raising money to get his message out by talking about Russia,” Soboroff reported.
Soboroff asked a couple of residents if they had been following Russian investigation, which did not seem to be a top priority for anyone Soboroff interviewed.
“It’s almost as if we’re really running, you know, two campaigns. We got to focus on the issues. At the end of the day, that’s what the people care about the most,” Janz told Soboroff. “The national attention is good because we’re going to need to raise the resources to tell my story.”
“One of the things I’ve been criticized for is only talking about Russia, which couldn’t be further from the truth,” Janz continued.
Soboroff asked Janz why is everyone talking about Andrew Janz and Russia.
“No offense, but you folks in the media only talk about the Russian thing, so when I’m there talking about water and infrastructure, that’s not covered or that’s not played on cable news,” Janz explained.
On Monday, CNN went to the building in Russia where the alleged Russian troll factory operated during the 2016 presidential election so they could dig through their trash and try to enter the facility.
CNN sent chief international correspondent Matthew Chance to the Internet Research Agency, the name of the firm Special Counsel Robert Mueller claims is responsible for meddling in the 2016 presidential election, to see if he could uncover any clues from the building.
During a segment with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Chance said, "We came here expecting this office to be empty, but, in fact, all day here, we’ve been here throughout the course of the day, people have been going in and out."
"We went to the trash can to see what we could find because we saw people dumping rubbish there," Chance continued. "New computers, new computers are being delivered here and they're throwing away the rubbish."
Chance tried to speak with a man who appeared to work in the building, asking him if he was a troll before getting smoke blown in his face as they then tried to follow him into the building.
Upon entering the building, CNN was quickly thrown out by men who appeared to be working security and were clearly not happy to see them there.
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day.
A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
While the two liberal anti-Trump networks offered heavy coverage of the anti-Trump rally throughout the day, a check of coverage between noon and 5:00 p.m. Eastern found that the Fox News Channel offered only a short re-cap (66 seconds) at the start of their 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour.
Of course, none of the networks were aware of who was allegedly behind the march, but CNN and MSNBC reveled in the inflammatory messages of the march. At one point, MSNBC anchor Alex Witt credulously responded to the ridiculously alarmist rhetoric: “That woman, when she’s saying she’s concerned that black people will be shot in the street....Is that a legitimate concern for her? Because, that’s scary.”
Correspondent Morgan Radford cheerfully played along: “Alex, it’s not only a legitimate concern for her, it’s a legitimate concern for a lot of people I’ve spoken to....They’re wondering if this [Trump’s election] is almost a license to carry in terms of hate.”
