Fox News media reporter Brian Flood has chronicled the looks and protests in the wake of the liberal tilt of the latest News and Documentary Emmy Awards nominations. The most ridiculous nomination was to put left-wing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow in the “Outstanding Newscast” category alongside ABC. World news tonight and Nightline, NBC Nightly News, and Vice News tonight.
“The problem a lot of people have with the news they get, in terms of trust, is that a highly partisan opinion piece is sort of included in the news,” media reporter Joe Concha said. to Flood. “This is an opinion leader who pushed Russian collusion with Trump, Trump’s allies, for nearly three years, was denied by the Mueller report and never offered an apology or contrition. Now we are rewarding that behavior and it’s a hell of a lot of trouble. “
Dan Gainor of MRC joked, “Including ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ as a newscast is like counting Beyond Meat as something you actually want in your burger.”
PBS led the way with 52 nominations, while CNN racked up 41 and far-left Vice News 16 nominations. Fox News had zero. The Conservatives do not need to ask for rewards.
Concha wasn’t the only critic of the play:
Journalist Drew Holden, who has made a name for himself in the media industry with viral Twitter feeds showing bias, said “the details of the appointments are almost laughable” and found problems with many more appointments. by Maddow.
“These awards are a good reminder how corporate media coverage is not designed to educate ordinary Americans but to gain praise from other progressive and elitist institutions“Holden told Fox News.
“CNN won an award for coverage of the coronavirus outbreak, despite an error on masks, the laboratory leak hypothesis, transmission of the virus and more? Night line win a prize for Governor Whitmer’s kidnapping plot, which we have since discovered involved more FBI agents and informants than actual perpetrators? You have story after story listed for awards that not only get the material facts wrong, but other outlets have done a much better job of getting the truth, ”Holden said.
Flood noted that NBC’s Savannah Guthrie shouting questions during a “town hall” with President Trump was nominated for “an outstanding live interview.” CNN pressing Team Trump also had two nominations: Dana Bash v Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Wolft Blitzer v Attorney General Bill Barr. You are not nominated for tough Democrats questions.
For “Outstanding Edited Interview”, there was the 60 minutes interview where Lesley Stahl mocked President Trump that there had been no Hunter Biden scandal. Maddow was also nominated in this category for a softball interview with Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian associate of Rudy Giuliani. She didn’t ask Parnas about hers federal criminal case pending for making false statements and falsifying records.
Doesn’t falsifying files slow down a liberal journalist? Not if the forger is on the “right side of the story.” Gainor also quipped to Fox, “If the News Emmys want credibility, they should be given special awards for the many bogus stories the media has forced on us – from Russian collusion to Jussie Smollett.”
