Ever since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the liberal media has been harping on the D.C. hotel that bears his name. The concern is that Trump is violating the leasing contract of the historic post office owned by the federal government, which says a public official cannot profit from the property. But according to a news brief by anchor Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News on Thursday, that’s no longer an issue for the President, a fact that was omitted by both ABC and NBC.
Thursday was the final day for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear outside arguments for or against Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. Despite his stellar qualifications, Senate Democrats vowed to throw a hissy-fit and filibuster the confirmation vote. The act is completely unprecedented and is clearly being done out of revenge. And even with that fact, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed to find little interest in the development and gave the story the bare minimum of a news brief.
When President Trump made his claim that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, the media demanded evidence. Since Trump’s initial tweet on March 4, the evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC have called on the White House to provide more evidence a grand total of 123 times.
In the wake of explosive new claims from Congressman Devin Nunes that Donald Trump and aides were surveilled during the presidential transition, the partisan networks on Thursday circled back to focus on the President’s “baseless,” “false,” “fictional” Tweets. ABC, CBS and NBC also questioned the credibility of the House chairman who brought the information to the President.
Wednesday was the third day of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s marathon confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch. The Big Three networks' (ABC, CBS, and NBC) evening news programs buried the story of Tuesday’s hearing after Senate Democrats failed to trip him up. But for Wednesday’s hearing, they ran up the white flag, with CBS and NBC running very short news briefs while ABC failed to mention Gorsuch or the hearing at all.
The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying alleged rape of a teenage girl in a Washington D.C. suburb high school bathroom by two men, including one here in the U.S. illegally. Instead, the pathetic liberal media that’s shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving over 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang raped a female student.
ABC’s terror-themed drama Quantico is back again for its second season and ready to make conservatives and Donald Trump the enemy, instead of actual terrorists, according to a new report in the Hollywood Reporter. After a few attacks on Republicans, Tea Partiers and Trump fans in the first season, show frontrunner Joshua Safran said in an interview published Wednesday that he had plans for more overtly anti-Trump episodes in the works for season two.
As a member of The Daily Signal team, I took offense to The Washington Post’s recent questioning of our “legitimacy” as a news organization. The Washington Post began its story stating that, “In an age of partisan media, the lines between ‘partisan’ and ‘media’ can sometimes blur.” I wonder if the reporter has taken a look at just how partisan some of our country’s media behemoths actually are. Here is a summary of the ownership, lobbying, and political contributions of several of America’s largest media companies.
The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have devoted exhaustive coverage over the allegation that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election, as most recently seen in their massive reporting of the James Comey hearings. But there was a time when they didn’t care when a foreign country tried to buy a U.S. election (Hint: It helped a Democrat). Back in 1996, China helped then-President Bill Clinton get re-elected by funneling money to the Clinton campaign.
NBC didn't bury the story after a commercial break like the other networks, but they did try to paint President Donald Trump’s nominee in a highly negative light, literally. “Gorsuch says he met Mr. Trump when interviewed for the job,” reported justice correspondent Pete Williams on NBC Nightly News. While he was saying that, a dreary black and white clip of Gorsuch shaking Trump’s hand played in slow motion. It looked as though it was a scene out of a TV murder documentary.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts and Nightline anchor Juju Chang touted a story of a mother and son both declaring themselves as transgender and getting gender re-assignment hormones and surgery. The two ABC anchors mutually gushed over the “incredible” “moving” and “touching” story. At the end of the report, Roberts and Chang even praised the “courage” of the mother for being “inspired” to change genders because of her child’s transformation.
Capitol Hill was a hive of activity on Monday. The House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers about the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In the Senate, the Judiciary Committee conducted the first in a series of hearings in the confirmation process of Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both were major events on the hill but the Comey hearing drew the overwhelming majority of the network news attention, leaving one anchor to say it was “overshadowing” Gorsuch.
