In the latest enlightening edition of the NewsBusters Podcast, Executive Editor Tim Graham breaks down the gushy interview tour for Barack Obama’s latest memoir that reminds America again that the same press that tortures Trump can turn around and spread love all over Obama.
Just a few weeks ago, Lesley Stahl was openly mocking President Trump for suggesting Joe Biden had some scandal in his family. Now, Scott Pelley interviews Obama and asks him to condemn Trump for scandalously endangering democracy.
As he discusses how Obama’s memoirs can tend toward the fictional, Tim mentions “The Audacity of Myth” in his 2013 book Collusion with Brent Bozell. The part about when the former president mangles the timelines of when his father and mother left Hawaii is posted here.
Then Tim is joined by Jorge Bonilla, Director of MRC Latino, to discuss the dramatic leftist tilt of the Spanish-language “news” channels, especially Univision, Telemundo, and CNN En Espanol. They discussed Kathleen Krumhansl’s account of Univision’s Obama-book interview. They chose the Chilean author (and radical feminist) Isabel Allende — who was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Obama in 2014. Jorge also offers an explanation about the surprising (leftist-confounding) Latino vote for Republicans this year.
