Media Bias

An MSNBC reporter found himself in hot water for his accidental defense of the Second Amendment

Published

on

MSNBC is unapologetic for their left-wing views.

Their anchors and reporters regularly parrot far-left talking points and attack conservatives.

But one MSNBC reporter accidentally defended the Second Amendment and could end up in big trouble for it.

In the left-wing media, there is no sin worse than defending the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

And on MSNBC, with rabid leftist hosts like Rachel Maddow, it is something you will never see.

But in a rare moment of candor, MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders appeared to unwittingly make the case for the Second Amendment while reporting on the violent crisis in Venezuela.

While citizens of Venezuela are standing up to dictator Nicolas Maduro, the military backing Maduro is fighting back, often with extreme violence against the citizenry.

And Sanders reports on this, stating, “In Venezuela, gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody.” Adding, “if the military have the guns, they have the power.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.

Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.

“Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military,” Sanders said. “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

Maduro’s socialist regime has presided over economic devastation in Venezuela, where citizens are beset by rising prices and food and medical shortages. The country banned private gun ownership in 2012 under Maduro’s authoritarian predecessor, Hugo Chavez.

This is the exact argument the most fervent defenders of the Second Amendment make.

Because ultimately, the right to keep and bear arms has less to do with personal defense, or hunting, than it does with providing a check on a hostile government.

And as we’re seeing in Venezuela, when citizens are unable to own guns they stand little chance in fighting back against a violent dictator like Maduro oppressing the people under absolute despotism.

Sanders clearly didn’t realize exactly what the argument he was making entails, as it was just a very short portion of his report.

Do you think the right to keep and bear arms deters would-be tyrants?

    Can’t argue with the Reporter on this one. Also THE USA needs some M-60s on the Southern Border right now. That would sure slow the stream of Invaders down. Every 6th round needs to be a tracer.

      So, a liberal finally admits gun ownership is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to freedom. I suspect he will be fired for telling the truth.

    All I can say is, if we the people did not have that right, we would be stuck with former president Obama instead of our great president Donald Trump.

    I’m not willing to relinquish my right of unrestricted access to firearms for some demented social experiment.
    What if THEY are wrong?
    Leave our Constitution alone and go play with some other country’s destiny.

    The private ownership of firearms absolutely matters and it matters greatly! The left Wing Marxist Control Freak Democrap Party would like to institute a centrally controlled Communist police state government in America. However, with 350 million guns in the hands of American citizens, they know better than to even attempt such a coup!

    I agree with everyone here, private ownership o firearms absolutely matters and is core right guaranteed by the 2nd amendment and will not be relinquished.

MSNBC made one claim that will leave any Trump supporter on the floor laughing

Published

With hosts like Rachel Maddow, MSNBC is the home of the anti-Trump resistance.

They spend every moment of their shows attacking the President.

And they just made one claim that will leave any Trump supporter on the floor laughing.

Following news that Americans are firmly against the Democrat’s impeachment scheme, MSNBC anchors furiously took to the air to show their disapproval.

Anchor Chris Matthews in particular let loose, giving a theory of why voters are so strongly against impeachment — that Fox News is to blame.

NewsBusters reports:

“For the liberal media, an unofficial part of any job title must include attacking Fox News in an either occasional or permanent capacity for all that ills America. The task fell to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Chris Matthews on Tuesday afternoon as the pair blamed FNC for the lack of overwhelming public support for impeaching and removing President Trump from office.

Matthews correctly noted that “[t]his bitterness and this division” in America “is not new” because it “took decades to develop” with it emanating in the Vietnam War. Matthews added that Trump (as opposed to the left and their media allies) has “exploited” the increased polarization.

Instead of looking inward, Ruhle replied that “what is new is the way news is consumed” before fretting that “[t]he poll numbers aren’t changing and we can say, ‘hasn’t anybody watched these impeachment hearings over the last two weeks?’”

Right on cue, Matthews interjected: “Well, there was no Fox back then. There was no Fox.””

This claim is laughable to any Trump supporter who is paying attention.

Fox News has rapidly shifted to the Left, with anchors like Chris Wallace and Judge Andrew Napolitano parroting Democrat talking points on every show.

Besides hosts like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, the network is fully on board with impeaching President Trump.

President Trump has even been blasting the network, which he once considered his favorite television network.

Do you think Fox News has lost their way?

CNN just admitted the Deep State controls them with one insane move

Published

Since the election of President Trump, the Deep State has done everything to take him down.

They control many government agencies that Trump is supposed to be the boss of.

And CNN just admitted they’re controlled by the Deep State with one insane move.

Since President Trump came into office, there has been no day more terrifying to the Deep State than when Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report into FISA abuse.

He makes clear the FBI under Barack Obama acted improperly when obtaining surveillance warrants.

But networks like CNN are making selective claims about the report in order to paint the FBI in a positive light.

And to further control the narrative, they chose not to air the Senate testimony of Horowitz, instead announcing they will selectively choose what to air later.

Breitbart News reports:

“CNN opted against airing Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses during its investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign.

The move was highlighted by Ari Fleischer, White House press secretary for President George W. Bush, in a tweet: “CNN is not taking the Senate Horowitz hearing live. Unbelievable. A perfect example of how bias works. It’s not just what they cover. It’s what they don’t cover.”

Rather than broadcast the hearing, The Federalist’s Sean Davis noted that CNN featured commentary from anchor Jim Sciutto, one of the network’s more prominent promoters of the now-debunked theory that the 2016 Trump and Russia criminally conspired in the last presidential election.

Horowitz will testify in the Senate on Wednesday to detail his report this week that found no evidence of bias in FBI efforts to investigate the Trump campaign as part of the Russia inquiry.

The report Monday answered accusations from President Donald Trump that the bureau acted improperly in its surveillance of former campaign adviser Carter Page, as it related to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.”

This is CNN outright admitting they are biased against Trump.

While they are willing to air every moment of the impeachment hearings against Trump which are occurring in Democrat-controlled House Committees, they won’t do the same for hearings that could be damaging to Deep State Democrats.

Do you think CNN is fake news?

Joy Behar made a fool of herself after whining about a major Trump win on The View

Published

Joy Behar is the most rabidly anti-Trump co-host on The View.

She can’t go a day without attacking the President.

And she just made a fool of herself after whining about a major Trump win.

While Democrats and the mainstream media are working overtime to convince voters that Trump needs to be impeached, every day Americans aren’t buying it.

A new Quinnipiac poll shows that a majority of Americans oppose impeachment, with 51 percent in opposition, and only 45 percent supporting it.

In response to this news, Behar took to The View to blast Trump, stating that his “tactics” are causing the opposition.

NewsBusters reports:

“A new Quinnipiac poll out Tuesday revealed the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump appears to be working against them with voters, with a slight majority now opposing impeachment. The hosts of The View were upset at this news and lashed out at their Republican guest co-host, former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie on Wednesday’s show, blaming Republican “tactics” for persuading voters against impeachment.

Sounding like she worked for MSNBC, Behar grumbled that the poll was a sign Trump’s “tactics” were swaying public opinion:

“A Quinnipiac poll just found 51% of voters oppose impeaching him. It looks like his tactics are working because last week it was the opposite,” she stated.

However guest co-host Chris Christie pushed back on that, pointing out Trump hasn’t changed who he is, yet Democrats keep reaching for new reasons to impeach Trump:

“I would say the other side. I think that the Democrats’ tactics are failing and that’s really the problem. He hasn’t changed. You hear that. He’s the same he has always been,” he pointed out.”

Trump is simply playing the political game, just as Democrats are.

And while the Democrats have the mainstream media on their side, Trump has the strongest economy in decades.

It shouldn’t be surprising that Trump is winning in the eyes of everyday Americans.

Do you think Democrats are sore losers?

    The Times failed to mention the alleged victim didn't recall the supposed "incident." In response, President Trump called for “the resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh smear story.”
