Wacky MOLE: Clueless Media Chant ‘Putin’s Price Hike’ -Wonder Why Oil Companies Don’t Drill More

Eric Scheiner | March 11, 2022

In this week’s Wacky Moments of Leftist Extremism:

After hosting her own show on Wednesday, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell ventured over to MTP Daily to continue in the media’s newest tradition of acting like historically high gas prices are solely due to Vladimir Putin’s decision to wage war on Ukraine. Not only did Mitchell defend Biden’s talking point, she hailed it as “a great way to message it.” Expect the media to repeat it ad nauseam.

During a segment on the February inflation numbers and skyrocketing gas prices, MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle asked one of her guests why American oil companies can't simply drill for more oil. Ruhle seems to be unaware that the Biden administration has stimied the production of more domestic oil drilling. 

Everything is racist on MSNBC, especially compassion. On Monday night's The ReidOut, host Joy Reid used the last segment of her prime-time show to exploit the war in Ukraine in order to play racial politics. Reid claimed that the reason the United States and the rest of the world care so much about Russia's invasion of Ukraine is that their population is "white and largely Christian."

A Quinnipiac poll has exposed that a majority (52%) of Democrats would flee America if it was invaded like Ukraine by a hypothetical enemy. The poll also showed a vast majority of Republicans and a majority of independents loved America enough to take up arms and fight for their country. But this damning poll went unmentioned by the flagship newscasts of the broadcast networks Monday evening and Tuesday. They were pretty busy fabricating narratives in order to slam Republicans.

Both ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News were clearly upset that kindergarten to third-grade students in Florida won’t be taught about transgender ideology after the passage of the Parental Rights In Education bill, which the networks repeatedly called the “don’t say gay” bill. CNN described the idea that 8-year olds would not be learning gender theory or sexual identity politics as “stunning.”
