Media Bias

A CNN analyst just put the final nail in the coffin of Beto O’Rourke’s campaign



Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s only claim to fame is losing against Ted Cruz in Texas.

And somehow he thinks he can become President.

But those hopes just went down the drain after a CNN analyst put the final nail in the coffin of his campaign.

For months, O’Rourke has been floundering in the polls.

Despite being an early favorite, much of the excitement behind his campaign is gone.

He had the chance to reignite the momentum he once had for a short while during Wednesday’s presidential debate.

But as CNN political analyst Van Jones points out, O’Rourke wasn’t able to do that, and so the debate was most likely his campaign’s “last hurrah.”

The Hill reports:

CNN political analyst Van Jones suggested that the first Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night may have been White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke’s “last hurrah.”

Jones called out the former Texas congressman for not being able to capture the same level of excitement for his presidential bid as he did in his 2018 Senate run against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

“I think he’s done because there was such hope and expectation about him,” Jones said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” during a panel discussion following the debate hosted by NBC in Miami.

“[Wednesday’s debate] was really the night to remind people why he was this incredible rising star, and on the issue he should have at least been fluent on, he got his butt kicked hard,” he added.

Throughout his 2018 campaign against Cruz, he had no bigger ally than the media.

They spent his entire campaign pushing him as a legitimate candidate with a real chance of beating Cruz instead of as the longshot candidate he truly was.

But that same media clearly isn’t on his side this time.

O’Rourke is competing with dozens of other Democrats, and is coming off as the least exciting one of them all.

If he doesn’t turn things around quick, he’s most certainly done for good.

Do you think Beto O’Rourke’s campaign is over?

    Fb decided we cannot post this story. Betty is from my home state and just like he lost to Cruz he would have lost to Trump. His career in politics is over due to his severe overreach.

    When I look at Beto, I see this tall, gangley kid on a skateboard. He obviously can’t run with the big dogs, so he needs to stay on the porch!

    Francis o’Rouke was NEVER a contender. The media bias shored him up. There’s 19 other candidates that shouldn’t be there either.

    ^Tell him o put his flower dress back on that he wore in the 90’S. All those candidates are goofy. I am a Independent voter, I was a Democrat. Not today. Still for the working people. Just not the Fascist far left seditionist goof balls that now make up the democrat political leadership. The RINOS are in the same league.

    If his campaign is not over; it ought to be. Just when it doesn’t seem that he can say anything more dumb he manages to do so.

    It’s beginning to look he is a flash in the pan. If he had beatened Cruz I would be ashamed of us in Texas that will stay red.

    Beto’s campaign is over? When did it ever actually start? All he has done is prove that he’s not willing to put America before criminal invaders.

    I have watched Beto on TV several times and figured out his problem. He’s always jumping around a lot. I’m not a doctor but I finally figured it out. He has a serious case of Jock Itch! Does this disqualify him from running for President?

    Beat Off O’Dork believed the media hype they created when he ran against Cruz. I think he is nothing without the media’s constant fawning over him, and he knows this. He doesn’t have the confidence to take this to the next level, and he’s not smart enough to figure out how to separate himself from the rest of the commie Democraps.

    “Beto” is the name Robert Francis O’Rourke gave to the only part of his body that can be helped by the little blue pill.

    Mr. O’Rourke is a veritable clown. Just because he left his red nose and wig at home does not make him any more a contender than his fake Spanish does.

    I thought it was more serious than jock itch. The jumping and juvenile acting is far more dangerous, not only to our country but to himself. There is a name for it, I just can’t boot it up at the moment. Good riddance, I just wouldn’t be able to stand having to see or listen to him.

    Yes, he wants to be sure all illegals have medical insurance, but not the hardworking citizens who work every day and have supported this great country for many, many years! He moves his arms around so much that I want to tie him in a straightjacket and see if he can still talk!

    He had a campaign? I never thought he had a chance to begin. Hannity was right to nickname him “Bozo”. The man is nothing but an accident-prone clown. He keeps shooting himself in the foot and then sticking that foot in his mouth.

    Beside the adoring media coverage when he ran for the senate, Robert Francis only did as well as he did because he had plenty of time on his hands to visit every county in Texas and lots of out-of-state financial help that enabled him to do so. We heard several stories of hispanic citizens being for him because they thought, from his stupid nickname, that he was hispanic. The Democrats were desperate to take a Texas office, but it didn’t work. The truth that he was of Irish background is out now. He wouldn’t stand a change of beating President Trump.

    Beto is toast. So are the others under 2%. Mayor B is looking bad too. If he can’t fix his city, how can he be expected to run the country?
    All the clowns who want to give illegals free healthcare are in for a rude awakening.

    He is campaigning in Mexico…Maybe he should permanently move there and become a real Mexican instead of a fake one. Nothing against Mexico, I have plenty of Hispanic friends

Jim Acosta just made one mistake that has Trump seeing red



Fake news CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is no stranger to being in the spotlight.

He has made a career out of attacking Trump on national television.

But now Jim Acosta made one mistake that has Trump seeing red.

President Trump has been proactive during the outbreak of the coronavirus, giving the American people daily briefings so they can stay up-to-date with accurate information on what the government is doing to fight the virus.

This is increasingly important for Trump to do while the Fake News Media is spending all of their time fear mongering and using the pandemic to play political games and attacking Trump.

During Trump’s recent briefing, he asked Dr. Deborah Birx to establish a timeline of events for the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Birx has been able to provide real information about what is happening with the coronavirus and she began her time by reassuring Americans that what the Trump administration is doing to fight the virus is working.

She continued, “I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban. It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission . . .”

But Dr. Birx was interrupted by CNN’s Jim Acosta who shouted, “Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April.”

President Trump was furious Acosta had flat-out interrupted Dr. Birx mid-sentence and stepped in to say, “It is going away. I said it was going away and it is going away.”

Following Acosta’s obscene behavior, Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley blasted Acosta in a tweet that identified a “press pandemic” in America.

Many Americans think Acosta crossed a line interrupting Dr. Birx.

Turley’s criticism is fair when looking at what fake news CNN and the rest of the media elites have been doing since the outbreak of coronavirus in the U.S.

They have done nothing but fear-monger to Americans, and now that they have the country hyperventilating around the clock, they are playing politics to attack President Trump.

Do you agree with Jonathan Turley? Does America have a “press pandemic” from fake news CNN and media elites spreading fear and playing politics instead of delivering facts and information?

Fake News

Ted Cruz shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check



The Fake News Media once again failed American during the coronavirus outbreak.

So called journalists popped champagne corks over the ability to blame President Trump for the Chinese virus.

And Ted Cruz just shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check.

The media is celebrating every bit of bad economic news that rolls in as the government lockdown to combat the coronavirus sends millions to the unemployment line.

Washington Post “fact checker” Glen Kessler relished the idea of the economy – which Donald Trump regularly touted – turning sour and being a weak point in the re-election campaign.

Kessler wrote, “Line from Trump’s State of the Union address that did not age well: ‘Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country.’”

Ted Cruz slammed Kessler in a tweet by pointing out that the fake news hated the fact that President Trump oversaw an historic economic boom and now did back flips over a once in a century pandemic that deprived the President of this talking point.

This pandemic is showing just how much many journalists root against the country and hope the bottom falls out just because they hate President Trump.

So-called “journalists” are pulling off their masks and revealing that they are Democrats first and Americans second.

Pants on Fire News will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie



Members of Congress used to be known for only lying to their constituents back home.

And the media was once known as “the arbiter of truth” and an institution of trust and respect.

But that has all changed and now CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone from being considered by some as a respected, impartial journalist to just another left-wing hack who can lie and promote the Left’s with the best of them.

Tapper recently admitted that he allowed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to blatantly lie about President Trump during a recent interview.

AOC said during the interview, “The beds and the capacity that we need in this country. And we’re hearing it every step of the way from this administration. First, we were hearing that it’s a hoax, then we were hearing that everything was fine.”

This all stemmed from earlier false press reports claiming the President called coronavirus a hoax. The claims were quickly disproven and even corrected by most news outlets.

But clearly not by CNN.

Tapper later even admitted he knew it was a lie from AOC, but chose not to say anything.

“I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax.” Tapper said.

Tapper went further in trying to deflect from the Congresswoman’s lie by simply accusing the president of being a liar.

“I guess that’s the problem with a politician who lies so often. While I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so it’s tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when it’s not taking a stand defining the truth,” Jake added.

So, in other words, because Tapper doesn’t like the president and personally believes Donald Trump lies often, he decided not to correct a blatant lie on his show.

This disregard for the truth is so widespread by the media now, Tapper’s decision didn’t receive much coverage.

There was a time not so long ago when ploys like this would have cost a reporter his job.

But we have moved far past that time in history.

The Trump era may go down in history as the time that journalism died its last death.
