The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday highlighted the “pioneers” at the Time 100 “most influential people” party. Yet, the “icons” featured just happened to be the founders of the liberal Women’s March on Washington, as well as a Fox News accuser.
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).
Planned Parenthood is big news today, as the GOP proposes defunding America’s largest abortion provider. Even so, it remains unlikely that the liberal media will report a new video shining a negative light on the abortion giant. On Wednesday, the Center for Medial Progress (CMP) released its latest undercover video: “Planned Parenthood ‘Lamborghini’ Exec Haggles Again Over Baby Parts Prices.”
The brand-new NBC show Great News premiered on April 25 with two episodes, “Pilot” and “The Bear Attack.” The show is about young television news producer Katie Wendelson (Briga Heelan) who is trying to gain respect in the newsroom at “The Breakdown” while her helicopter mother Carol (Andrea Martin) takes an internship position at the station.
We got to bid farewell to season two of TBS’s The Detour in the April 25 double episode, the latter being a supersized, limited commercial season finale. But if you thought this was the last of the ongoing attacks on Christianity and family values, you’d be wrong.
Ivanka Trump was embracing her role as adviser to the president on Tuesday when she was representing the United States at a women’s summit in Berlin, Germany. While on stage, she stated that her father has “been a tremendous champion of supporting families.” And with that, the European audience “hissed” and “jeered.” The liberal Big Three networks were more than happy to pounce on the incident and replay it that evening.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump paid his respects for Holocaust Remembrance Day with a visit to the National Holocaust Museum just a few blocks away from the White House. There he denounced anti-Semitic attacks saying: “It has been on display in the most sinister manner when terrorists attack Jewish communities or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction. This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism.” Yet all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) omitted his remarks from their evening reports.
Showing that he’s somewhat incapable of shame, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews re-upped and defended on Tuesday night his comparisons of the Trump family to the ultimately-slaughtered Romanovs and Saddam Hussein’s murderous sons Uday and Qusay.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a pre-recorded segment in which CNN's Alisyn Camerota was seen speaking with six Donald Trump voters about how they view the President's performance, the New Day host cracked a joke about whether one panel member was calling President Trump a "maniac" and "insane," or North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.
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.
While ABC, CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found time to celebrate the return of “easy-going,” rested Barack Obama to the public scene, none of them covered the release of a blockbuster expose that reveals the buried secrets of the ex-President’s Iran deal giveaway.
Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.
