The Sunday network morning shows were filled with discussion of the health care bill recently released by Senate Republicans on Thursday. That discussion was loaded with fake news about the bill drastically slashing Medicaid, which was being pushed by the program moderators. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos actually yelled at Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway because she refuted it. Meanwhile, on the other networks, GOP Senators were embarrassing their hosts by educating them on what the bill actually did to Medicaid.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, where he was grilled in regards to the Russia investigation. Sessions drew criticism from many by appearing to be evasive on some questions in regards to his communications with President Trump. This did not sit well with CBS Evening News, where Anchor Scott Pelley chided that “today, the attorney general was more measured [than Trump], even though he declined to answer some of the most revealing questions.”
One of the largest revelations to come out of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s public hearing with former FBI Director James Comey on Thursday was that President Trump was not under investigation. That fact didn’t seem to sit well with CBS’s John Dickerson when he appeared during CBS News Special Report after the hearing. Almost desperately, Dickerson tried to argue Trump had to be under scrutiny, “So, a President who was once concerned about not being under investigation those actions he took may now, in fact, make him under investigation.”
Friday morning the big three news networks tore into President Trump for his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord yesterday. Though the move was praised by conservatives, the networks solely reported from the left’s perspective, touting rebukes from radically liberal politicians in the U.S. and globally. Not only that, but the networks went a step further, fretting that Trump’s decision put the U.S. behind in leadership and in respect
It only took moments for NBC and CBS to trash President Trump’s decision on Thursday to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, relying on immediate denunciations from Barack Obama and Al Gore. During special coverage following the President’s Rose Garden address announcing his decision, anchors on both networks promptly recited statements from the two Democrats.
House Republicans and President Donald Trump took a large step in their efforts to repeal and replace the failing ObamaCare system on Thursday. In a very tight vote, Republicans passed their health care legislation and handed the bill off to the Senate. “But lawmakers voted without the final bill ever being scored, as they say in Washington,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir at the start of World News Tonight, “Meaning they voted without knowing how many fewer Americans would be insured, some predict tens of millions.”
Seconds after the Republican House of Representatives finally passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), CBS News did their best on Thursday to tout Democratic concerns, pro-ObamaCare protesters, and hypocritically chide Republican supporters for not being “modest” in their massive legislative achievement.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump ending his interview with John Dickerson when the CBS host started pressing him about his claims that President Barack Obama had ordered wiretapping against him, liberal CNN political commentator Paul Begala lambasted Trump as someone who makes a worse President than a dog would make.
After Trump abruptly ended an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson yesterday, Late Show host Stephen Colbert devoted his entire monologue to the contentious exchange Monday night, specifically taking issue with Trump calling Dickerson’s show, “Deface the Nation.” Colbert attacked the president in an angry profanity-filled rant to end his monologue, crassly calling Trump’s mouth a “holster” for Vladimir Putin’s penis.
In one of the most noteworthy moments from Face the Nation host John Dickerson’s all-access weekend with President Trump, an angry and peeved President shooed away Dickerson following a tense exchange about accusations the Trump team were spied on by then-President Barack Obama and his administration during the campaign.
President Donald Trump sat down with CBS’s John Dickerson for an interview about the first 100 days of his presidency, which aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. In between talking about the serious topics, the President took shots at the media, including his host. “You know, it is very funny when the fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you,” he told Dickerson. “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation,’ but, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.
Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.
