In a series of contentious interviews on Thursday’s network morning shows, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was forced to debate with anchors about whether President Trump’s tax plan was just “tax cuts for the rich” and even asked to swear an oath that the reform proposal would be revenue neutral.

In hostile interviews with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Thursday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America parroted the same liberal smear about Donald Trump’s tax returns to bash the President’s tax reform plan. Hosts on the respective morning shows did the Democrats’ bidding as they again demanded Trump release his returns.

The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Wednesday were grateful that a liberal federal judge sent the White House “reeling” after he handed President Trump “another big setback” to his “hardline immigration policy.” Rather than actually highlight the criminals who have evaded capture due to lax enforcement of immigration laws in left-wing sanctuary cities, the networks instead celebrated the ruling as a loss for the administration.

On Wednesday, the network morning shows responded to President Trump’s tax reform plan with the standard liberal rhetoric employed whenever Republicans call for tax cuts: How are you going to pay for this massive loss of government revenue?! The ABC and NBC broadcasts also feared the plan would help Trump financially (as it would for all Americans).

On Tuesday, the broadcast networks were delighted that President Trump decided to temporarily hold off on border wall funding in order to help reach a budget deal in Congress. Rather than credit Trump for making a reasonable compromise to avoid a government shutdown, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows eagerly spun the news as a defeat for the White House.

With Republicans set to make another run at repealing and replacing ObamaCare this week, look for the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) to blame conservatives, specifically, the House Freedom Caucus for any sort of obstruction to getting a deal done. In 30 days of health care debate coverage (March 7 through April 5), the broadcast networks consistently framed it as a fight between unreasonable conservatives versus more moderate Republicans and Senate Democrats by overwhelmingly applying ideological labels to one side of the argument.

The networks and cable channels on Sunday and Monday went into full panic over anti-immigration candidate Marine Le Pen advancing to the final round of France’s presidential elections. Some of the labels spewed by journalists include: “Far-right,” “xenophobic,” “racist.” But the one description that came, over and over, on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and MSNBC, is “far-right,” “far-right,” “far-right,” “far-right” and, also, “far-right.”

Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos couldn’t hide his surprise at his own network’s poll results, during Monday’s show. The ABC News/Washington Post poll over the weekend revealed positive numbers for the president, going against the media’s negative narrative that supporters had abandoned Trump. Not only that, but the poll revealed Trump would win the election again, if it were taken today. A flabbergasted Stephanopoulos admitted he was surprised by the results.

Monday morning ABC, NBC and CBS spent multiple reports blaming Trump for a possible government shutdown this Friday, while, at the same time, downplaying the likelihood of Republicans supporting the border funding and allowing this to happen. All three networks centered their reports around Democrat opposition to the border wall as a “moral” issue that the party couldn’t get behind. Yet when Republicans didn’t want to back Obamacare, the networks eviscerated the GOP at the time, for being obstinate and “hurting” the American people by threatening a government shutdown.

Despite a combined six hours of available air time, ABC and NBC on Friday skipped Donald Trump’s dramatic intervention to free an American aid worker who has been detained in an Egyptian prison for three years. Only CBS This Morning bothered to cover the effort to get Aya Hijazi back to her home in Virginia.

Despite falling short of the 50% of votes needed to win, ABC's Good Morning America crowned Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff as the victor of Tuesday night’s special election in Georgia. Correspondent Cecilia Vega and anchor George Stephanopoulos gushed over the “rookie” who came “just short” of “winning the whole thing.” GMA used the race’s closeness as a reason to bash Trump while political analyst John Avlon spun that Democrats had “an emotional victory.”

The journalists on Monday’s Good Morning America excitedly predicted that a special election in April of 2017, 18 months before the midterm elections, could mean a “real chance Democrats take back Congress in 2018.”  Discussing Democrat John Osoff’s chances in Tuesday’s Georgia House race, Matt Dowd enthused: “Can he win it without a runoff? If a Democrat wins that district in Georgia, there's real chance Democrats could take back Congress in 2018.”
