Irony abounded on Tuesday as all three network morning shows used Democratic Party talking points to accuse Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes of bias. While advancing a liberal partisan agenda, NBC, ABC, and CBS correspondents laughably told viewers that it was Congressman Nunes who had “lost even the appearance of impartiality.”
On Monday, the network morning shows mysteriously discovered a newfound respect for President Trump’s social media postings after he took to Twitter over the weekend to lay blame for the failure of health care legislation on the House Freedom Caucus and conservative activists. The hosts and correspondents on the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts were gleeful as they touted the “blame game” and “recriminations” occurring within the Republican Party.
While the liberal media has portrayed the tabling of the ObamaCare replacement bill as a “hugely embarrassing” political failure for President Donald Trump, there is one thing they aren’t doing – calling it a missed opportunity to rescue Americans who have been hurt or burdened by ObamaCare. However, there was a time back in 2010, when liberal reporters were saying something entirely different. After Republican Scott Brown took over “Ted Kennedy’s seat” and was poised to cast the deciding vote that would kill ObamaCare the liberal media feared for the fate of President Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation.
Apparently not content with just having all of its hosts and correspondents relentlessly attack the Trump administration and the Republican Party, NBC News decided to hire Barack Obama’s former White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a “political analyst” to join in the network’s savaging of the GOP.
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.
During an interview with Senator John McCain on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer could not contain his enthusiasm for the idea that the politically-charged congressional investigation into supposed ties between the Trump campaign and Russia could somehow bring down Donald Trump’s months-long presidency: “Do you think that when all of those shoes drop, that they may mortally wound this young administration?”
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.
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.
On Friday, in part two of his interview with United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, NBC Today co-host Matt Lauer worried about how President Trump was viewed by the international organization: “As you walk through the halls of the United Nations, does this president have credibility?”
In an interview with Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow for Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Stephanie Gosk worried that the conservative media figure did not think it was “dangerous” for the President to criticize the press: “President Trump calling the, quote, ‘fake news media,’ ‘the enemy of the American people.’ That kind of extreme language, is that not damaging to our democracy?”
On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer introduced a report on the “major battle” brewing over President Trump’s budget proposal by proclaiming: “The blueprint just out this morning already facing some criticism. So what's in it and which popular programs could see their funding slashed?”
During an interview with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau aired on Wednesday’s NBC Today, special correspondent Tom Brokaw complained about President Trump’s latest executive order temporarily suspending immigration from a handful of Middle Eastern nations: “He's made another effort to shut down or at least diminish the opportunity for immigrants to come here. Another judge has stepped in.”
