Despite acknowledging Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch “sailing through his confirmation hearing relatively unscathed,” on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Kristen Welker still carried water for the Democratic Party and offered excuses as to why Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was going to filibuster the eminently qualified judge.
Liberal journalists on the three networks, Wednesday, dutifully did the bidding of Democratic senators trying to take down Neil Gorsuch. ABC, CBS and NBC all promoted the partisan effort to “keep [Gorsuch] on the griddle” and force the nominee to prove he’s “not a political pawn.”
Just hours before the Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was set to begin, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning eagerly parroted Democratic talking points against President Trump’s judicial pick and promised an “intense grilling” for the federal judge as the “ugly” process got underway.
Both ABC and NBC were desperately backing calls from partisan Democrats, Monday night, to have a special prosecutor investigate the Donald Trump’s campaign for evidence of collusion with Russia. But, took a liking to call from one particular Republican. “In Washington tonight, pressure is intensifying for an independent investigation on Russia, including a call from a leading Republican,” announced anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “There's also new resistance to those calls by the White House.”
On Wednesday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning both hailed liberal protesters “sounding off” at congressional town hall meetings “to put the breaks on President Trump's agenda” and giving Republican lawmakers an “earful.” In 2009, the same networks warned similar public meetings were “getting out of hand” when “unruly” Tea Party demonstrators spoke out against the Obama administration.
Monday’s network morning shows were aghast at President Trump continuing to criticize the liberal media with a Friday tweet in which he labeled them “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.” In response, the ABC, NBC, and CBS broadcasts accused him of “declaring an all-out war on journalists” and compared Trump to Richard Nixon in the midst of Watergate.
Following President Trump’s Wednesday press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker passive aggressively savaged Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich for questions to Trump that Welker deemed not to be “tough questions” concerning Mike Flynn.
As the old saying goes, ‘never let the facts stand in the way of a good story.’ The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) did just that Monday night when they pounced on claims made on social media that President Donald Trump and his national security team discussed details of the North Korean missile test in public. They gleefully read the Facebook posts of a man who was in the dining room with Trump and who claimed they were discussing the launch, even though Jeff Pegues admitted on CBS Evening News “It's not known what they were discussing…”
Kicking off NBC Nightly News on Wednesday, the network seemed to bizarrely come out against the Donald Trump administration for “officially putting Iran on notice” following an unsanctioned ballistic missile test on Sunday that violated UN resolutions. “National Security Adviser Michael Flynn accusing the Iranians of defying the UN. Did they do it?,” questioned anchor Lester Holt in the opening tease. Kristen Welker’s entire report cast doubt on the administration’s claims while warning of a dire outcome.
In her latest tussle with White House press secretary Sean Spicer, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker returned on Wednesday by catering to Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), wondering what President Trump will do to get Schumer to support Neil Gorsuch since he’s hurt Schumer’s feelings in the past.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called out NBC News on Tuesday for inaccurately reporting President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven terrorist-sponsor countries. During the daily White House briefing, NBC's Kristen Welker asked Spicer about Trump's use of the word "ban" in a tweet on Monday. The press secretary responded, "He's using the words the media is using."
Yes, that headline does not contain a typo. All Saturday morning on MSNBC, the liberal cable network foolishly tried to convince viewers that the far-left, pro-abortion Women’s March would offer only “a message of unity” and not be “hateful or anti-Trump.” This is just not true. As my colleague and MRC Culture writer Katie Yoder has repeatedly chronicled, women’s groups with pro-life beliefs were not only purged, but also informed that the official event platform “is pro-choice.”
