Media tout health care defeat

This Week On #MediaBuzz

COREY LEWANDOWSKI said the media should reflect that the healthcare defeat was mainly the fault of Congress and defended President Trump on the surveillance controversy while acknowledging he should choose his words carefully. JOE TRIPPI said it was a major defeat but that Lawrence O'Donnell went "way overboard" in calling it the end of the Trump presidency. ERIN McPIKE said the healthcare debate was covered too much like a football game, obscuring the impact on people's lives. MOLLIE HEMINGWAY said the media have a "cartoonish" obsession with proving that Barack Obama didn't personally wiretap Trump. AMY HOLMES said the press rightly reflected that Neil Gorsuch is a qualified nominee, but JULIE ROGINSKY said his hearings were overshadowed by other Trump controversies. And MARISA GUTHRIE said Glenn Beck gave Tomi Lahren what she wanted in suspending her and that "the Internet has become a lynch mob."

Ask Howie

I wanted to send an email about your segment with Kellyanne. She should have her own news show so we can learn the POSITIVE news about President Trump! She was 100% on point about the news media about cherry-picking which stories they spin and "report." I know most of the news I read or hear is probably untrue or twisted into some negative story.
