CNN media hack and host of the inaccurately named program “Reliable Sources,” Brian Stelter drew a lot of flak last week when he came out in defense of the Democratic National Committee’s ban on allowing Fox News to host debates for them. Then, during his show on Sunday, Stelter flashed his deep-seated hatred for his more highly rated competitor when he expressed confusion as to why D.C. reporters were stand up in solitary with Fox News.
There was a stunning admission from ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran during Sunday’s This Week when he conceded that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign, then there would be a “reckoning for the media” among others who pushed the notion.

During a scathing takedown of CNN for justifying the Democratic National Committee’s ban on allowing Fox News to host a Democratic debate, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reminded viewers Thursday night of why his colleagues were the bigger people. And The Hill’s media reporter, Joe Concha recalled why CNN wasn’t the most trustworthy when it came to holding debates.
Precipitated by the recent vile comments from anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the House passed a resolution to condemn hate and bigotry in all its forms Thursday. Despite the overwhelming and bipartisan support that the resolution received, ABC’s World News Tonight chose to pretend as though it never happened. They instead chose to sensationally share the disturbing and twisted confession of Chris Watts, who killed his wife and two young girls.
America had a heavy heart on Wednesday after we all learned that Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. But instead just promoting Trebek’s fighting spirit and spreading awareness of a type of cancer that’s really hard to detect, CNN’s Chris Cuomo had to throw in a dash of politics into the mix and veiled references to President Trump. While also promoting CNN’s empty slogan.
After they freaked out about President Trump’s national emergency declaration regarding the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, the Big Three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed reluctant to report on new numbers from Customs and Border Protection saying they had caught 76,000 illegal immigrants in February. While The New York Times had it as a front-page story on Wednesday, NBC News completely omitted it from their morning and evening news programs.
Apparently, when President Trump took time to hug the American flag on the CPAC stage on Saturday, he triggered people on the left and sent them into a tailspin. And in a report during Tuesday’s edition of Erin Burnett OutFront, CNN reporter Jeanne Moos dedicate time to hype negative responses on Twitter and by late night comedians, while lampooning the President for his display of affection for the flag.
In 24 hours, NONE of the flagship morning and evening news programs for the Big Three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) saw fit to inform viewers that liberal darling, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was facing serious accusations of campaign finance violations. If true, those allegations carried possible jail time.
On Monday, The New York Post’s Page Six reported that ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts complained to The Cut magazine that her homosexuality created a “no win situation” [sic] for her ridiculous softball interview with Empire actor and accused hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
The liberal media were elated Monday after the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee sent letters to over 80 people and entities related to President Trump requesting documents they hoped they could impeach him with. And during their evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC hyped those Democratic efforts to probe every aspect of Trump’s life.
In an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, CBS Justice correspondent Paula Reid surprised viewers by taking a firm stance against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) allegations of collusion. In the latter part of the show, moderator Margaret Brennan pointed out the dubious nature of Schiff’s latest allegations. “[T]his allegation of money laundering on behalf of Russia through the Trump organization but he admitted he had no proof of that thus far.”
In a This Week discussion about the prospects for different Democratic 2020 candidates on Sunday, ABC’s faux Republicans Matthew Dowd proclaimed that the Democratic Party was much closer to what the rest of the country believed than the Republican Party was. On top of that, Newsweek and Daily Beast writer Michael Tomasky suggested that a candidate with low name ID like Washington Governor Jay Inslee could “very easily” beat President Trump.
After the testimony from convicted liar Michael Cohen before the House Oversight Committee last week, the liberal media were convinced he was the key for Democrats to bring down President Trump regardless of what the Special Counsel found. One of the biggest problems for Democrats, according to ABC host and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Sunday, was that Trump enjoyed ’90 percent’ approval from the GOP, who Stephy seemed to suggest were all hardliners.
For two days, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been embroiled in scandal after former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould testified before the House of Commons Justice Committee that he pressured her to back off a bribery investigation into an engineering company. The liberal networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have kept the scandal off their morning and evening news shows. But on Thursday, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News pounced on Benjamin Netanyahu’s impending indictment.
With President Trump on his way back home after the failed denuclearization negotiations with North Korea, Thursday’s edition of ABC’s World News Tonight decided to take some swings at the President for not getting a deal. It was a head-scratching complaint since many in the liberal media spent the last few days clutching their pearls in fear of Trump giving away too much because of flattery.
For all the liberal media’s prior pontifications about Wednesday being a “split screen” between two major events for President Trump, the congressional testimony of his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the denuclearization summit with North Korea, they were sure to only give the latter just a few pixels.
Despite Michael Cohen’s shady history and federal conviction for lying to Congress, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) hung on his every word following Wednesday’s hearing before the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee. While glowing about his “dramatic public reversal” and “deeply personal takedown of a sitting president” (as NBC reporter Kate Snow did) they all chided Republican members of the committee for reminding viewers of his impending jail time.
With the U.S./North Korea summit being conducted in Vietnam this week, CBS ended Tuesday’s edition of Evening News with a celebration of their efforts to help America lose the Vietnam War. Or as anchor Jeff Glor put it: it was “the realities of war, minus the fog.”
Broadcasting live from Hanoi, Vietnam for the second U.S./North Korea summit on denuclearization, NBC kicked off Tuesday’s Nightly News with a report giving a rundown of the current state of the negotiations after last year’s historic summit. But towards the end of that report, which was delivered by anchor Lester Holt, he shared concerns from “critics” who feared Kim Jong-un would “flatter” his way to major concessions from President Trump with little in return.
