Just like she did last week, ABC anchor Amy Robach tried to bring left-wing activism into her coverage of the Winter Olympic Games on Good Morning America, February 12. From Pyeongchang, South Korea, Robach sat down with Olympic athlete Adam Rippon and immediately asked what message the openly gay skater he had for Vice President Mike Pence.


Friday on The View, the most liberal host and most conservative host clashed repeatedly in a feisty exchange over the domestic violence accusations against former White House aide, Rob Porter. While host Meghan McCain focused on Porter himself, host Joy Behar couldn’t help but bitterly gripe about how terrible Republicans and this administration were, which angered McCain.


ABC is apparently so devoted to touting liberal icons, that they will promote a competitor’s documentary if it’s about their mutual hero. On Good Morning America, February 9, anchor George Stephanopoulos and Nightline co-host JuJu Chang gushed over Netflix’s new documentary on feminist attorney Gloria Allred, which was released today, saying they “can’t wait” to watch it, before sharing their own interview with the infamous attorney.


According to one of the most liberal newspapers in the country, one of the most popular liberal podcasts on the internet will be getting more attention this year, thanks to help from one of the most liberal channels on television. The New York Times wrote February 8 that HBO will be broadcasting a special series of “Pod Save America” to air later this year, surrounding the 2018 midterms.

 

The network that famously touts itself as the arbiter over “fake news” stepped in it yet again, Wednesday. CNN’s Senior Diplomatic Correspondent Michelle Kosinski retweeted a North Korean parody account, touting the fake government account “trolling” Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

 

After Chief of Staff General John Kelly told reporters Tuesday that the discrepancy between the number of registered DACA recipients and those eligible for the program was probably due to people being too lazy or too fearful to apply for the program, the media went into a tailspin of fury over the adviser’s blunt comments.


ABC, NBC and CBS all ignored a bombshell report released by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee overnight, which revealed more critical evidence concerning how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. The Committee also released more damning text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page which showed an intention by the agents to find evidence to impeach President Trump as well as the news that President Obama wanted to be involved in the Clinton email investigation.


In his latest nutty rant, MSNBC's Hardball host Chris Matthews adamantly argued that President Trump didn’t like Nancy Pelosi because she was “ethnic.” To back up his crazy point, Matthews cited another white person that Republicans supposedly attacked because they were “ethnic,” former House Speaker from Massachusetts, Tip O’Neill.


Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos tried desperately to connect President Trump with a former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as a Russian agent working with the Kremlin during an interview on the ABC morning show. However, no matter how hard the former Clinton staffer pressed Page, he didn’t gain any ground in proving his Democrat-agenda-driven talking point.

 

Democrats have been slamming House Speaker Paul Ryan after he deleted a tweet touting an AP story, in which a school secretary explained that she got a nominal raise because of the GOP tax bill. Because the amount was so small, or “crumbs” as Nancy Pelosi would put it, Democrats bashed Ryan and Republicans for daring to celebrate Americans getting more money in their paychecks.

 

Late night ABC host Jimmy Kimmel touted his own intelligence and the need for comedians to be political activists during a friendly interview with liberal podcast hosts Crooked Media before a live audience this past weekend in Hollywood.


Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos practically had a conniption on Friday’s show, complaining he was "stunned" by a single tweet from the president questioning the FBI and Justice Department’s impartiality around “release the memo.” As soon as the show had begun, Stephanopoulos jumped right in to tout the tweet as the “bitter” final straw between Trump and the two organizations.

 

Last night on FNC’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham interviewed parents of a teenage girl who was killed by the gang MS-13 in 2016, and who were honored by President Trump at the State of the Union, January 30. The radio and television host asked the couple about their reaction to Democrats not standing for their daughter during the speech, and MSNBC’s Joy Reid’s dismissive response to Trump honoring the couple and their slain daughter.

 

On Wednesday’s Daily Show, host Trevor Noah brought CNN commentator Angela Rye for a friendly interview that began with the late-night host gushing over how “amazing” the liberal pundit’s rude behavior on CNN was.

 

The 2016 election still isn’t over for the liberals in the media, who keep trying to find ways to prove that President Trump “obstructed justice” and should be impeached, just past a year into his presidency. Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor and former President Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos eagerly hoped they had finally found the evidence needed to oust Trump.


As to be expected, the liberal hosts at ABC’s The View were less than thrilled by President Trump’s State of the Union last night. Since co-host Joy Behar was out sick, host Sunny Hostin took the mantle giving the hysterical anti-Trump take, decrying the “very offensive” speech that “demonized immigrants,” on the show’s January 31 episode.


Following President Trump’s State of the Union address January 30, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel brought on his special guest, porn star Stormy Daniels, who accused the president of having an affair with her years ago. But before that, Kimmel decided to play the moral arbiter of our time yet again, with an over-the-top sob segment on DACA, intended to make Trump voters and conservatives look like narrow-minded monsters.


Immediately following President Trump’s positive State of the Union address, which ABC complained was “divisive” “gloomy” and “sad,” the same ABC team was still in meltdown mode two hours later on Nightline. But newly instated ABC News contributor Chris Christie was the only one to declare the truth of the matter, that Democrats had become so partisan that there wasn’t “anything” he could’ve said that night to appease them.

 

New York Times’ columnist Michelle Goldberg threw a hissy fit in the January 30 paper bluntly entitled, “Please Don’t Call Him Presidential,” referring to President Trump’s impending State of the Union speech, tonight. The op-ed contributor blasted the media for daring to call Trump presidential after last year’s joint speech before Congress, and “begged” her fellow journalists to tone down any overt praise they would have for the speech because Trump just simply didn’t deserve it.

 

Journalists and CEOs from the leaders in the liberal media gathered last night at New York University for a panel discussion on the evolving media landscape, entitled: Media, Fake News, and the New Generation of Informed Citizens. Maggie Haberman from the New York Times, Ben Smith from Buzzfeed, Andy Lack of NBC News, and Richard Plepler of HBO were the major panelists, along with Axios CEO Jim VandeHei, who moderated the January 29 event.
