While the broadcast networks spent Wednesday focusing on a Senate hearing they were hoping would implicate President Trump in obstruction of justice, they ignored a House Oversight Committee report that showed President Obama’s administration did just that. “An absolutely blistering report tonight out saying the Obama administration in general and former Attorney General Eric Holder in particular repeatedly lied to the family of a slain Border Patrol officer about the weapons used in his death, and stonewalled efforts to get at the truth,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier on Special Report.
All of the negative news about President Donald Trump provided a convenient smokescreen to obscure a story highly damaging to former President Barack Obama on Wednesday. As first reported by Circa News, “The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall.” As would be expected, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely omitted from their evening broadcasts.
If there was one thing the liberal media does with the greatest of ease, it would be pretending the corruption of Democrats doesn’t exist. That talent was on full display Thursday as the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the conviction of former Florida Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown. “Corrine Brown has been found guilty on 18 fraud and tax evasion charges,” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier during Special Report.
As the Media Research Center has documented since FBI Director James Comey’s firing on Tuesday, the liberal media have been in a rage and desperately trying to tie the firing to Russia. The media’s hyperventilation didn’t escape the eye of The Federalist’s Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway, who denounced them as “delusional” during Thursday’s Special Report on Fox News. “You know, even though I am a long-time media observer, I am kind of gobsmacked at the media coverage of this firing,” she told the rest of the panel.
It was recently discovered by The Daily Caller that the Department of Veterans Affairs had fired the director of the VA hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana. According to them, the former director is Toby Mathew and he was terminated “’based on charges related to general misconduct, and failure to follow policy and provide effective oversight of the Center’s credentialing and privileging program.’” So far none of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have cared to report the development.
On Monday, the radical Iranian Revolutionary Guard harassed a U.S. Navy vessel for the seventh time this year. “Back overseas, an Iranian navy vessel engaged in a potentially disastrous game of chicken with a U.S. destroyer earlier this week,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier on Wednesday’s Special Report. “It is the latest provocation that many U.S. officials worry could turn into something deadly.” Despite the uptick in Iranian aggression towards the U.S., the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored it.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump paid his respects for Holocaust Remembrance Day with a visit to the National Holocaust Museum just a few blocks away from the White House. There he denounced anti-Semitic attacks saying: “It has been on display in the most sinister manner when terrorists attack Jewish communities or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction. This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism.” Yet all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) omitted his remarks from their evening reports.
Following their humiliating defeat in the 2016 election, the Democratic Party found themselves in a terrible place where they were down over 1000 seats through all levels of government since 2008. And according to one high-ranking Party official, one person held the blame. “The number two official for the Democrats says former President Obama is to blame for the Party's recent electoral failures,” Fox News’ Bret Baier reported on Special Report on Thursday, while the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the figure pointing.
Friday, magazine and website The Hollywood Reporter spoke to news anchors from all of the major networks in a discussion about what the role of the journalist was in today’s day and age. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was the most forceful of the group in arguing that it wasn’t the media’s role to share all sides of a story. In fact, he argued, it was the journalist’s job to report “the truth” and to silence viewpoints that didn’t “accept reality.”
Last Thursday, a young girl attending Rockville High School in Maryland was brutally gang raped in her school’s bathroom by two fellow students, at least one of which was in the country illegally. Fox News was the first network to tell the story on national television on Monday. Tuesday, a local Fox affiliate reporter asked White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer about the crime. Despite the room being packed with reporters from every national news network, ABC, NBC and CBS refused to report the story on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
After spending literally days mocking President Donald Trump for inventing a “Sweden Incident” involving Middle East immigrants, the liberal Big Three networks were hanging their heads in shame Tuesday morning in the wake a violent immigrant riot that broke out in Stockholm the night before. “Police in Sweden are investigating a riot that broke out overnight in a predominantly immigrant suburb of Stockholm,” announced Fox News anchor Bret Baier during Special Report, yet it went unreported by the nets all day.
Near the end of Thursday’s Special Report on the Fox News Channel, conservative syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer fired back at USA Today writer Susan Page touting Democratic boycotts of the Trump inauguration as “pretty powerful” by exposing this massive media double standard if the party roles were reversed.
