Imagine if the suspect arrested today in connection with making phone threats to Jewish community centers around the nation had been a big Donald Trump supporter. Do any of you have any doubt at all that the fact of his support for Trump would have been in the first paragraph of all the mainstream media reports of his arrest? In fact, it would probably have appeared in the very first sentence.
On Thursday afternoon, our friends at RedState flagged this peculiar development that ABC News refused an exchange from the David Muir-President Trump interview where Trump scolded Muir for the media’s lack of coverage of the March for Life versus the Women’s March on Washington.
Despite carrying the Denver Broncos to the playoffs in 2011, subsequently being cut from 3 NFL teams, and receiving constant media hostility, Tim Tebow’s faith was not shaken. On October 25 Tebow, who now plays outfield for the New York Mets in an instructional league, released his new book titled, Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms. According to the description on Amazon, Shaken discusses “glimpses of [Tebow’s] journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny.” Tebow probably has a lot to say about media criticism, considering the leftist sports media has either ignored or belittled his achievements.
Brazilian women’s rugby player Isadora Cerullo got engaged to a female manager at the Deodoro Stadium after the manager Majorie Enya gave an “emotional speech.” The online media, including CNN, ABC, and The Huffington Post, saw the opportunity to resurrect the “love wins” slogan.
Maybe, as the meme says, Donald Trump really is "living rent-free in the heads of the media and liberals everywhere."
On Sunday's This Week show on ABC, show host Martha Raddatz read the presumptive GOP nominee's tweet wondering how the FBI could possibly not "recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton." Raddatz, while reading the full tweet, said, "against crooked Hillary Clinton." "Crooked" is Trump's favorite adjective to describe Mrs. Clinton, strangely not used in this instance, and which the press tries to avoid like the plague. Home video posted online from the show demonstrates that Raddatz indeed said "crooked." But the word "crooked" was deleted from an ABC affiliate's video retrieved Tuesday morning from Grabien.com, and is also no longer included in the official show video at ABC's web site.
ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts punted on covering an openly-homosexual pastor dropping his lawsuit against Whole Foods on Monday, after accusing the grocery chain of including the word "fag" on a cake he ordered from a location in Austin, Texas in April 2016. Jordan Brown disclosed that "the company did nothing wrong" in a statement, and apologized to the "LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues." By contrast, CNN's New Day on Tuesday devoted a news brief to Brown "admitting the company did not actually decorate the cake that way."
The global warming alarmists in the liberal media always latch on to events and blame them on climate change. It’s their regular M.O. But recent reports claiming climate change was responsible for drowning five Pacific Islands misrepresented the science.
This irritated Dr. Simon Albert, a researcher at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland, one of the scientists whose paper was “misrepresented by alarmists,” according to Breitbart London.
ABCNews.com claimed on May 9, “Five Solomon Islands Disappear Into the Pacific Ocean as a Result of Climate Change.”
"She works hard for the money!"
Got that? And if you don't, Senator Tom Carper of Delaware repeats it over and over again in reference to Hillary Clinton who he introducing at a rally. To make it even worse Carper, lacking all sense of self awareness, even tries to get the audience whom he condescendingly treats like simpletons to chant the same line. Carper's performance was so embarrassing that even ABC News had to laugh at him.
Two writers at the Five Thirty-Eight blog, purchased by ABC's ESPN network two years ago, have done something the crime increase causation deniers will surely detest: demonstrate, based on statistical evidence, and despite their tentative language, that "real changes in the process of policing in Chicago" have led to "spike in gun violence in Chicago since the end of November."
Translating the work of writers Rob Arthur and Jeff Asher into plain English: There has been a clear "Ferguson effect" crime wave in the Second City since the release of the Laquan McDonald video in late November; now the criminals are literally getting away with murder with horrifying frequency (HT Powerline; links are in original; bolds are mine throughout this post):
Yesterday morning, before the Republican Party's Nevada caucuses began, Nate Silver at the inexplicably hallowed FiveThirtyEight blog made a really naive and tone-deaf assumption. He reckoned that the caucuses would be a low turnout event, noting that in 2012, "only 1.9 percent of the voting-eligible population — about 33,000 people — participated in the Republican caucuses in Nevada," and spent hundreds of words speculating how that would affect each candidate's prospects.
Oops. This year's turnout in the Silver State more than doubled 2012:
It would appear that the incurably leftist UK Guardian can be tougher on a Democratic Party presidential candidate than the U.S. establishment press.
The Guardian, the perch from which Edward Snowden exposed the activities of America's National Security Agency in June 2013, had reporter Adam Gabbatt at Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's Iowa City campaign appearance. The couple of U.S. press reports which noted that Mrs. Clinton spoke for less than five minutes seemed not to think that such a short speech was unusual. Additionally, only Gabbatt did the obviously necessary follow-up to see how the audience felt about getting so little attention from Her Majesty (bolds are mine). They weren't thrilled:
ABC's morning and evening newscasts, along with those of competitors CBS and NBC, have yet to cover on the latest Washington Post/ABC poll finding that 53 percent of Americans oppose a new assault weapons ban. This is the "first time in more than 20 years of ABC News/Washington Post polls, with the public expressing vast doubt that the authorities can prevent 'lone wolf' terrorist attacks and a substantial sense that armed citizens can help."
