Early Tuesday evening, the non-partisan and often inaccurate Congressional Budget Office released its latest score for the revamped American Health Care Act. The big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were quick to latch onto the claim that 23 million people would be without health insurance. None of them mentioned how that figure comes from many people choosing not to buy the health care they are forced to by the government. They also downplayed how many with health insurance would get relief from their skyrocketing premiums.

It appears that 5 p.m. has become the new witching hour, since for over a week that’s been when most of the major news stories regarding President Trump have been broken. It was no different Wednesday evening when D.C. was rocked by the announcement that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to be the special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation. The Big Three Networks  led with the development on their evening programs, during which they celebrated it and slammed the right.

In the immediate aftermath of the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) didn’t quite know how to spin it. But just 24 hours later, the narrative was clear: President Trump fired Comey because the Russia investigation was closing in on him. During their Wednesday evening broadcasts, the networks spent almost two-thirds of their Comey coverage (62 percent) pushing that theory. The networks ran 40 minutes, 25 seconds of Comey coverage, and of that, they spent 25 minutes, five seconds on the conspiracy theory.

House Republicans and President Donald Trump took a large step in their efforts to repeal and replace the failing ObamaCare system on Thursday. In a very tight vote, Republicans passed their health care legislation and handed the bill off to the Senate. “But lawmakers voted without the final bill ever being scored, as they say in Washington,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir at the start of World News Tonight, “Meaning they voted without knowing how many fewer Americans would be insured, some predict tens of millions.”

On Monday, both and ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning adopted Democratic Party talking points as reporters spun a congressional spending deal to avoid a government shutdown as a win for liberal lawmakers.

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.

After all three broadcast networks celebrated left-wing Tax Day protests over the weekend, on Monday morning, NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America continued to revel in the anti-Trump hate, touting footage of demonstrators launching nasty attacks against the President while applauding how “determined” they were to “get their message out.”

In an act similar to that of a whining child, Senate Democrats attempted to block the President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. Republicans, in turn, followed through on their promise to execute the so-called “nuclear option” to bring debate to a close and move the nomination forward. In response, ABC and NBC were up in arms that evening. “The Republican leader today emerged from the partisan battlefield with a thumbs up. The top Democrat, his head hung low in defeat,” bemoaned ABC’s Mary Bruce on World News Tonight

Whenever liberals get upset about something, its almost a guarantee that the broadcast networks will do a story channeling their fears. That was the case Wednesday morning, as ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today seized on left-wing environmental activists being in hysterics over President Trump’s executive order rolling back excessive environmental regulations imposed by the Obama administration.

The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) pulled out all the stops and sharpened their knives for their effort to tear into the White House’s budget proposal on Thursday. “President Trump has unveiled his first budget proposal covering all the things the federal government pays for and how he wants to spend the money,” announced anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “There's a lot more money for the military but there are critics who say popular programs and the poor would pay the price.”

Late Monday afternoon, the Congressional Budget Office released its report on the House Republican’s proposal to repeal and replace the crumbling ObamaCare law, and it wasn’t pretty. “It finds that under the replacement plan, there would be more 14 million more uninsured people next year than under ObamaCare, and 24 million more uninsured a decade from now,” announced ABC anchor David Muir during World News Tonight. But ABC and the rest of the Big Three networks omitted key details of the bill and it’s only fair to report them.

Members of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill rolled out their replacement for ObamaCare on Tuesday, and it immediately drew fire from both the left and the right. But you really wouldn’t know that if you watching NBC Nightly News that evening, where their main concern was that of the liberals. The network allowed two minutes five seconds to slamming the bill from the liberal perspective while giving a mere five seconds to conservatives.
