Ivanka Trump was embracing her role as adviser to the president on Tuesday when she was representing the United States at a women’s summit in Berlin, Germany. While on stage, she stated that her father has “been a tremendous champion of supporting families.” And with that, the European audience “hissed” and “jeered.” The liberal Big Three networks were more than happy to pounce on the incident and replay it that evening.
As Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro struggled against violent protests against him, the U.S. based company General Motors had its means of production seized by the socialist regime Thursday. “General Motors tonight saying it's been forced to suspend its operation in Venezuela after the government there confiscated its factory,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir during World News Tonight, “GM forced to lay off 2700 workers, but vowing to fight this tonight.” Sadly, CBS was the only network not to report the theft.
After spending the morning playing up the non-win of Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff, ABC and CBS continued to play their game of spin-the-story Wednesday evening. “The President put all of his support behind Republicans in yesterday's congressional special election in Georgia, but it turned out that Democrat Jon Ossoff was the top vote-getter,” Anchor Scott Pelley announced on CBS Evening News, “Still, he fell just 2 points short of the 50% needed to avoid a run-off.”
As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party.
With the polls getting ready to close in Georgia’s 6th congressional district, ABC and NBC flaunted their admiration for the young Democrat Jon Ossoff Tuesday evening. “Tonight, the eyes of the political world are on a congressional district in Georgia where an upstart Democrat is trying to win a special election in what has been a Republican-held district for years,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “Democrats hoping to ride anti-Trump sentiment to victory.”
On Wednesday afternoon, news broke out of Washington D.C. that, “Conditions are so dangerous at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington, D.C., that the agency's chief watchdog issued a rare preliminary report Wednesday to alert patients and other members of the public.” That, according to USA Today. Despite the horrific conditions found in government ran facilities, CBS and NBC decided to skip the news during their evening broadcasts. ABC, on the other hand, did report the shocking findings.
On Monday, Judge Neil Gorsuch became the 113th associate justice to sit on the Supreme Court after he was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. The event was a culmination of many hours of testimony, a damaging filibuster by Senate Democrats, which forced Senate Republicans to use the so-called “nuclear option” to proceed with Gorsuch’s confirmation. But despite all of those historic obstacles, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) treated it as though it was nothing special, and ignored Democratic icon Tom Daschle who scolded Democrats for filibustering.
President Donald Trump got elected with promises to rev up the economy and create millions of jobs, so he has made sitting down with CEOs, executives and small business leaders a priority. Only it’s been a media priority to ignore it.
On April 4, Trump was at it again — holding more meetings — this time, a speech to trade leaders and a town hall with 50 CEOs, according to Fox Business. None of the network news programs mentioned it that night. Adding those executives to another 49 separate CEOs he already met with, Trump has sat down with at least 99 business leaders since taking office.
Whether it’s in their phrasing or omissions, the networks aren’t backing down in their defense of America’s largest abortion provider. On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed a bill empowering states to halt hundreds of millions in Title X federal funding from Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform abortions. In their reporting, the anchors saw the development from the abortion giant’s perspective: a “major setback.”
Just before the Big Three networks went live on Thursday night, President Donald Trump unleashed on the conservatives of the House Freedom Caucus in his latest Twitter tirade. And as the networks came on the air, they were eating it all up. “President Trump with a tweet storm, naming names, after his failure on health care, ObamaCare still the law of the land,” hyped ABC Anchor David Muir on World News Tonight, “And President Trump is making it clear who he blames. Some conservative Republicans who did not vote for the president's plan.”
The United States took a step to fight the country’s opioid epidemic on Wednesday, as President Donald Trump launched a new commission to look into to problem. The commission will be headed up by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but you wouldn’t know much about any of that if you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight. Instead of reporting that positive development for the country, the network had Correspondent Jon Karl praise failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for making jokes during a speech in California.
Whenever liberals get upset about something, its almost a guarantee that the broadcast networks will do a story channeling their fears. That was the case Wednesday morning, as ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today seized on left-wing environmental activists being in hysterics over President Trump’s executive order rolling back excessive environmental regulations imposed by the Obama administration.
