    In the past few weeks, many have taken notice of Dr. Anthony Fauci not making as many media appearances as he did in the first few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic. On Face the Nation Sunday, Margaret Brennan said in the past few months, they have attempted to book Fauci to talk about the pandemic, but their requests have not been approved. Brennan opened the show talking about the pandemic and the thousands of new reported cases aross the country. She went on to reveal that they have been trying to get Fauci and CDC officials on the show, but...
  • CBS Deceptively Edits Barr Interview, Leaving Out Key Details On Violent Riots, Police Oversight

    Some of the most colorful descriptions of the violence facing police officers at Lafayette Square were clumsily spliced out of the middle of Barr's answers to questions. Key details on violent riots near the White House were removed from the broadcast of an interview of Attorney General William Barr on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday. Anchor Margaret Brennan repeatedly described protests as “peaceful” and the clearing of protesters to set up a stronger perimeter as unnecessarily rushed, contentions Barr strongly denied.Left out of the interview that aired on CBS on Sunday morning was Barr’s detailed accounting of much of...

    In case you missed it, Attorney General William Barr appeared on Face the Nation on Sunday. Corrupt propagandist Margaret Brennan conducted the interview, and as she always does, faithfully did her best to spread the lies mandated within the construct of the current Democrat/media narrative. General Barr was having none of it, and systematically swatted the lies away, point by point. Say what you will about Mr. Barr, but he is damn good in an adversarial interview like this one. Here is the transcript of the interview: BRENNAN: Earlier this morning I went to the Justice Department to speak with...

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr rebuked the false narrative perpetuated by legacy media Sunday that protestors cleared near the White House last week were gathering in peaceful demonstrations. On Monday, protestors were dispersed by park police by pepper balls as the city neared at 7 p.m. curfew by Barr’s orders moments before President Donald Trump walked across the street to observe the damage done to the historic St. John’s Church.“They were not peaceful protestors,” Barr said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “That’s one of the big lies that the media is⁠—seems to be perpetuating at this point.”CBS’ Margaret Brennan pushed...

    Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead House manager in President Trump's Senate trial, said Sunday that there is nothing Democrats could have done differently during the impeachment process. Ahead of the Senate’s likely vote to acquit President Trump on Wednesday, Schiff defended Democrats’ methods and said that he and his colleagues “proved” their case. “Look, there's nothing that I can see that we could have done differently because as the senators have already admitted, we proved our case. We proved our case,” Schiff said on CBS's “Face the Nation.” **SNIP** CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if it was...
  • Stop gaslighting us: Yes, Joe Biden voted for the Iraq War

    Washington Examiner ^ | | January 12, 2020 04:45 PM | Brad Polumbo
    When an honest politician makes a mistake, he owns up to it. But after Joe Biden made a massive mistake by supporting the failed 2003 Iraq War that cost thousands of American lives and only further destabilized the Middle East, the 2020 candidate and his surrogates have instead chosen to completely deny that it ever happened. This continued on Sunday during Face the Nation on CBS. Former Secretary of State John Kerry, who has endorsed Biden for 2020, was asked by host Margaret Brennan about 2020 rival Bernie Sanders’ criticism of Biden’s support for the Iraq war. The Sanders campaign...
  • Kerry deflects question about why he released money to Iran, accused Trump of 'lies'

    “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry told CNBC in 2016. When asked by Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” why he believed this was a worthwhile risk when releasing the money, Kerry attacked the president rather than answer the question. “You know that the president's tweet is a lie,” Kerry told host Margaret Brennan. “And the president tweeted this morning, because I am coming on the show and he knew you'd ask me the question or he'd push you in a...
  • Schiff’s Snooping Standard: He says he can gather and release private metadata because only ‘the far right’ objects.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 8, 2019
    Kudos to Margaret Brennan of CBS for asking Adam Schiff on Sunday about his release of phone logs of his political opponents. Mr. Schiff dismissed any criticism, and his reason is revealing about the balance of power in Washington. “The blowback has only come from the far right,” Mr. Schiff said. “But look, every investigator seeks phone records to corroborate, sometimes to contradict, a witness’s testimony.” Yes, but executive-branch investigators who want to get data from private telecom companies typically must obtain some kind of judicial order. Mr. Schiff did it himself. Prosecutors are also supposed to limit the release...

    “There is something unique you have to agree that now the impeachment inquiry is underway, sparked by a complaint from someone within the intelligence community, it feeds the president’s concern, an often used term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out,” Margaret Brennan, the moderator for the event, asked McLaughlin. “Thank God for the ‘deep state,'” replied the former spook, who served as acting director at the CIA in 2004. McLaughlin appeared at the event, hosted by the Hayden Center, alongside former CIA Director John Brennan, former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell and former FBI Deputy Director...

    Margaret Brennan on Sunday's Face The Nation seemed to place her faith in the veracity of second hand information produced by the whistleblower concerning the phone call between the Ukrainian president and President Donald Trump. Secondhand information which could be properly labeled as "hearsay" which is what guest Senator Lindsey Graham called it. The sparks flew as Graham vigorously pushed back on Brennan's assertion that a secondhand source, or hearsay, for the phone call in question, is something that an impeachment inquiry could be based upon.

    CBS Claims Radical Climate Teen ‘Stares Down’ Trump, She Was Behind Him By Nicholas Fondacaro | September 23, 2019 9:04 PM EDT Of course, the liberal media heaped praise onto the teenage prop they had driven to hysterics with their fearmongering. Radical climate activist Greta Thunberg threw a temper tantrum at the United Nations on Monday where she claimed the world ruined her childhood, and threatened her opponents, and made faces at President Trump’s back. It was that later action that the CBS Evening News falsely suggested was some sort of faceoff with Trump that had him backing down. During...

"I certainly hope that the people of Israel make a different decision. And my hope is that they recognize that his existence, his policies, his rhetoric really is contradictory to the peace that we are all hoping that that region receives and receives soon," Omar told host Margaret Brennan. The congresswoman then reiterated her support for the anti-Israel BDS movement. "Just right now if you...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is lucky he was only fired and not prosecuted for improperly leaking information to a reporter and then lying about it. Partial transcript as follows: KENNEDY: Well, let me- let me say it again. There were and perhaps still are some people at the FBI, one of whom was Mr. McCabe, who helped politicize the agency. Whe- when an FBI agent knocks at your door, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican and whether that makes a...

Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: You were very critical of the Obama administration for taking action via executive fiat as you said, you called it dangerous. This week President Trump on immigration has issued orders bypassing Congress to restrict how migrants crossing the border illegally can claim asylum. Are you OK with that now?

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said President Donald Trump was a real estate developer, and therefore “not really a business person.” BRENNAN: At the DNC in 2016, you called Donald Trump a “risky, reckless and radical choice” and the country you said couldn’t afford to make that mistake. BLOOMBERG: Did I say that? BRENNAN: It was a memorable quote. Has he done anything to make you reconsider that? Do you think he’s doing a good job? BLOOMBERG: I think he, it’s, I would give him an incomplete grade. Some of the things that...

    For almost an hour on Tuesday, the White House press corps stooped to a new low of embarrassment and clownishly liberal behavior, lobbing over a dozen questions at Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson to insinuate that President Trump must be mentally ill to the point of Alzheimer’s Disease. This was all despite Jackson’s insistence that he’s in great health. Whether it was Bloomberg, CBS News Radio, CNN, or The Washington Post, the long knives were out as the liberal media engaged in their own Pickett’s Charge to save their narrative that Trump’s mentally ill and thus must be removed...

    With the recovery process just beginning in some parts of Texas on Thursday, following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, President Donald Trump pledged $1 million of his own money to aid relief efforts. Only two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and CBS) found it fitting to report Trump’s act of charity. NBC Nightly News was the only network news show to ignore it, instead, they simply mentioned that Trump planned to visit Houston on Saturday. In addition to Trump’s pledge, Vice President Mike Pence was in Rockport, Texas to survey the damage, console the people, and personally help with...

    After President Donald Trump spent a long weekend at Mar-a-lago, Sean Spicer held his first White House press briefing of the week on Tuesday. There, he faced a slew of questioning about a string of nationwide anti-Semitic crimes, including the touting of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to suggest Trump’s led to a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. CBS White House correspondent Margaret Brennan began her questioning by explaining that she wanted “to give you a chance to respond to something cause I think the President's remarks and your clarification about where he stands on anti-Semitism is clear.”Brennan...

    Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS presented several reports on the “massive” and “historic” flooding devastating Louisiana, even comparing storm damage to that suffered during Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. However, the one thing missing from the coverage was a single mention of the President of the United States, Barack Obama. On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt proclaimed: “Now to the flooding disaster still impacting tens of thousands of people in the south. That massive tropical system that devastated Louisiana is now bringing new flash flood watches to Texas. This...
