'Murphy Brown' episode focuses on reporter assault at Trump rally

In its most direct commentary yet on the Trump administration and its ongoing war with the press, Thursday’s episode of Murphy Brown revolves around Frank Fontana taking a literal beating at a presidential rally.

After volunteering to cover the event because “I really miss being out in the field,?Frank (Joe Regalbuto) shows up at the Pennsylvania rally where “Trump?(yup, the show had someone impersonating the president) starts riffing on Murphy (Candice Bergen).

“Anybody catch old Murphy on TV this morning??the fictitious Trump said. “Yes, she was at it again sitting there with her flunky friends, telling their big lies, planting their fake stories about our great country.?br />
Then he singles out Frank. “I hear old Murphy’s partner in crime, fibbing Frank Fontana is here tonight. Where is he? There he is. See him? That’s right. Let fibbin?Frank know what you think of him. Maybe a good body slam. What do you say??br />
Shortly thereafter, Brown learns from Miles that Frank was assaulted at the rally and airlifted to the hospital. When she sees her red-faced colleague in recovery, Murphy quips, “I guess when you major in journalism these days you have to minor in kickboxing.?br />
Frank explained he left the press pen to interview some of the people. “Next thing I know I was surrounded by a sea of red hats,?he tells Murphy and her son Avery (Jake McDorman).

In the next scene, Avery tries to find answers by reporting from a caf?near the arena where the rally occurred. He finds a woman who actually took the first swing at Frank. “How can you punch someone for simply doing their job??br />
“He had it coming,?the woman responds. “He’s fake news. He’s the enemy of the people.?br />
“He’s a journalist,?responds Avery. “He was just there to cover the rally. That is what the free press does. That’s what separates a democracy from a dictatorship. Or maybe a dictatorship is what you’d prefer.?br />
Then Avery gets his block knocked off.

More leftist projection, fantasy, and self-dramatization

I never cared for the original, and clearly this re-boot is even worse.

:yawn:

I used to watch it off and on when it was first on. Candace Bergen always delivered her lines as flat as a sheet of hockey ice and with as much warmth. It had a few funny stories if you could ignore Bergen’s heavy handed politics and I did like Miles ?his character was cute and funny. This reboot is just another way to bash Trump and anyone who supports him. They don’t get that they are the only ones that care how they feel. And from the clips I have seen it isn’t funny!

I watched the original from time to time and liked Bergen's sarcasm, if not her politics. And yes, in contrast to the Murphy character, Miles was endearing.

I haven't seen the reboot but I understand that it's been cancelled due to low ratings.

Yep, heard on the radio that it was cancelled.

It seems they want to be sure we all know on which side they reside.

It will be a great day when this trainwreck, and The Conners both get cancelled.

Which should be any time now.... :coolshades:

*Edit: I see from other posts Murphy Brown 2.0 has. :bowdown:

To be honest at first I like the original series but it quickly became about her politics and I gave up on it. I started calling her Mouthy Brown, just her preaching. Seems it has gotten worse. I cannot remember anytime a reporter has been attacked at a Trump rally, I do seem to remember reporters, not national TV types, being attacked at Democrat rallies just cannot remember when or where.

Aside from republican Greg Gianforte from Montana, I think most of the violence has been coming from the other side. Antifa is pretty good at attacking anyone trying to report on their antics. Then there was the professor in Oakland who hit a Trump supporter with a bike lock, oh wait, he was Antifa too.

Surprised. I at least thought it would have lasted longer than the Conners, who are ironically still on the air.

The only thing I liked about the original Murphy Brown was Eldon, her painter. I quite watching it w.a.y before she got pregnant.
