    ....... terrifying for white people -- and that's what this is about -- that people of color are threatening them so deeply that they are willing to dismiss democratic tenets? And I'm just repeating what I said earlier because I have no other explanation, Joe. There's nothing else there. We could put the 10 smartest scholars in the room. That's it -- I'm saying the quiet part out loud. It's no other explanation, and that's what we have to deal with in this country right now. .We're a divided country, and it's about race. I don't care what anybody else...

    You might have thought it was surprising, shocking, perhaps even inappropriate, that retired military brass, particularly those like James Mattis who served as aides to President Trump, have spoken out in criticism of him. You might also have thought that Trump-hater par excellence Nicolle Wallace would have been thrilled by their statements. But Wallace is apparently a tough person to please. On her MSNBC show this afternoon, Wallace expressed her "burning rage" that the military leaders didn't speak out sooner!Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • PBS reporter faces backlash for telling Trump there's 'no evidence' that anarchists appeared at protests

    Fox News ^ | June 01 2020 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor faced heavy backlash for insisting that there was "no evidence" that any activity that sparked from the George Floyd protests were the result of "anarchists." Protests have sparked across the country after last week's police-involved killing of 46-year-old Floyd in Minneapolis. However, riots also broke out that led to the destruction of property, looting, and assaults. On Sunday, President Trump urged Democratic mayors and governors to take stronger action against who he described were "anarchists" that have caused havoc in recent days.
  • Asian-American Reporter Implies Trump Is Racist And The Anti-American Media Run With It

    The Federalist ^ | May 12, 2020 | Kylee Zempel
    The racism narrative overshadowed the much more important point reporter Weijia Jiang highlighted, which is the media's consistent defense of China and downplaying of American exceptionalism. The media establishment has become an absolute clown show, with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang cast as the ringleader during Monday’s press briefing circus. Instead of asking President Donald Trump any relevant question as a means to better inform Americans amid the pandemic, Jiang opted for grandstanding with a question about as frivolous as the infamous “Is Chinese food racist?”“You’ve said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any...

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | April 27, 2020 | By Andy Lack, chairman of NBC News and MSNBC
    ... President Donald Trump came into office railing against many of the foundations of our democratic institutions, including a free press. Forty months into his administration, coverage of the coronavirus outbreak is the latest sign that - contrary to conventional wisdom - he hasn't laid a glove on serious journalism. His attacks, most recently against excellent reporters like Jonathan Karl (ABC), Yamiche Alcindor (PBS), Peter Alexander (NBC) and Paula Reid (CBS), put the bully in bully pulpit, but they haven't shaken the soul of the First Amendment. Trump's daily briefings, which sometimes include pertinent and significant information, have also frequently...

    New White House strategic communications director Alyssa Farah already has her work cut out for her. One of her first orders of business was to correct fake news reports that Surgeon General Jerome Adams was "sidelined" from public appearances after some comments he made last week about how the coronavirus affects minority communities. "Avoid alcohol, tobacco and drugs,” Adams told minorities during a coronavirus task force briefing. "We need you to do this, if not for yourself, then for your abuela. Do it for your granddaddy. Do it for your Big Mama. Do it for your Pop-Pop." PBS reporter Yamiche...

    On Monday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta stepped back in the ring for Monday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, as usual, he made a fool out of himself. Fortunately for our collective sanity, the ordeal lasted less than two minutes and ended with President Trump torching Fake News Jim for his “nasty, snarky question” about the President’s past statements at what was then a disturbing but evolving pandemic. Having recognized he was there, Trump called on him around 6:01 p.m. Eastern: “Go ahead, let’s give it a shot.” Acosta responded with this doozy, which felt...

    After being absent for much of the last two weeks, Jim Acosta reappeared at today’s Coronavirus Task Force press conference. As he always does, Acosta failed to ask anything relevant, instead attempting to engage the President of the United States in a debate. He failed miserably.

    CNN journalist Yamiche Alcindor asked President Donald Trump a question about a Sean Hannity interview where he allegedly said that certain states' leaders are asking for ventilators and other things that they do not need. Trump, visibly irritated (and rightfully so) responded with a degree of disdain. He did not like the way the question was phrased or the general tone behind it, saying that it was threatening and not nice. This type of behavior from CNN is, of course, not new at all. It is pretty much par for the course. As more and more people cut their cords...

    Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice suggested Monday that President Trump’s recent confrontation with a black female reporter displayed his dislike for strong women in general and black women in particular. During Sunday’s White House coronavirus task force briefing, the president told PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor to “be nice” and to not be “threatening” in response to a question about Trump’s claim that state governors were requesting supplies to fight the coronavirus pandemic that they didn’t actually need. “You go, girl,” Rice tweeted at Alcindor. “Pathetic when insecure men can’t stomach strong black women.” “I’m not the first human being,...

    The Hill ^ | John Bowden
    President Trump clashed with a reporter on Sunday during a press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak in the Rose Garden. "PBS NewsHour" reporter Yamiche Alcindor questioned Trump during the briefing over recent comments he made during an interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity about whether some requests from governors related to the outbreak were overblown or unnecessary. Trump responded by first denying that he had made the comments, which were reported by multiple news outlets at the time, before accusing Alcindor of acting "threatening" during the briefing. "Why don't you act in a little more positive? ... It's always get...

    The Democratic National Committee and the news organization Politico are locked in an argument over the ideological credentials of a proposed moderator for next month's Democratic debate, sources familiar with the matter told NBC News. Politico and PBS are scheduled to co-host the sixth Democratic primary debate on Dec. 19 in Los Angeles. At the behest of its publisher, Robert Allbritton, Politico is pushing for Tim Alberta, the chief political correspondent for Politico Magazine, to join journalists from PBS Newshour at the moderators' desk. The top PBS journalists under consideration are Judy Woodruff, Yamiche Alcindor and Amna Nawaz. Politico’s decision...

    Establishment media journalists and pundits uncritically accepted and promoted Jussie Smollett’s elaborate “hate crime” story, just one week after the mainstream media fostered the false narrative surrounding the Covington Catholic students, resulting in a laundry list of impending defamation lawsuits. Here’s 12 establishment media commentators and journalists who fueled the Jussie Smollett flames with impassioned and uncritical reactions to the Empire actor’s imaginative account of his supposed run-in with Trump supporters in “MAGA country” Chicago. 1.

    In another iteration of the liberal media’s suggestion that support for the border wall was driven primarily by racism, longtime NBC newsman Tom Brokaw appeared on Sunday’s Meet the Press and claimed Republicans have told him they’re not enthusiastic about the idea of having “brown grandbabies”. During the End Game portion of the program, Brokaw wanted to talk about the stuff “we don't want to talk about”. According to him, it was the Republican Party’s discontent for Hispanics. “The fact is, on the Republican side, a lot of people see the rise of an extraordinarily important new constituency in American...

    Say, maybe President Trump’s powers are even greater than anyone imagined . . . On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews asked Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times reporter, who Trump actually listens to. She responded: “Who he actually pays attention to are all the people he calls up on the phone: Roger Ailes. All these other people that are just kind of out in the world: Steve Bannon.” Ailes died over six months ago, in May 2017. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    From what we've seen over the years, it's not clear what skills (outside of government) Rep. John Conyers has to offer that would warrant a $174,000 yearly salary and perks and that just may be why his lawyer is not-so-subtlety warning the House of Representatives to back off or else. The fact this statement from attorney Arnold E. Reed was released via Tweet from Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times "reporter covering Congress, race & social justice issues", we have a good idea where this could be headed.

    While there have been only a smattering of climate change references since Hurricane Harvey took over news cycles, CNN and MSNBC featured more shameful exploitations of the hurricane on Monday to promote climate change as thousands were in need of help from rising flood waters. Perhaps most notably, one New York Times writer on MSNBC knocked the President, questioning his motives for recovery efforts, and used climate change to make a class argument that the poor and especially poor Trump voters are disproportionately going to be targeted by it.

    President Donald Trump was compared to another murderous world dictator on Thursday night as MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews suggested Trump is just like former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un since Trump and Kim “love the parades” where they can serve as the star alongside military demonstrations. The comparison arose while Matthews and his Hardball Roundtable discussed Trump’s latest blockbuster New York Times interview where the President raved about the crowds he claimed were there to see him at the Eiffel Tower and the immaculate Bastille Day parade he witnessed.

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...
