Mere moments after President Trump called for national unity at a Wisconsin rally in the wake of attempted bombings of prominent Democrats and CNN, CNN host Anderson Cooper kicked off AC360 by decrying the President’s speech. Not long after that, Cooper and senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny teamed up to tear into the President for the things he “did not say.” And according to Cooper, the mind reader, Trump didn’t see the targets of the attacks as human beings.
With investigators still trying to track down who sent bombs to CNN, the Clintons, and other prominent Democrats and still no motive in sight, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC put the blame squarely on President Trump’s shoulders during their Wednesday broadcasts. This, as they ignored attacks against members of the Republican Party around the country for weeks.
This week, Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos confirmed that state Attorney General Ken Paxton was looking into a case where the state Democratic Party allegedly sent out mailers to noncitizens requesting they register to vote with documents that had the citizenship box checked off. Instead of covering this case (which had been known about since late last week) both ABC News and CBS News pushed Democratic claims of voter suppression in Georgia by the GOP.
Federal investigators are looking into who left a pipe bomb in the mailbox of shady liberal billionaire George Soros’ New York mansion Tuesday. In the wake of the bomb attack, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision) rushed to cover the attack and parrot Soros’ condemnation of the “politics of hate”. But their concern for Soros came after all of them had ignored violent assaults and threat against conservative candidates and lawmakers.
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
With the midterm elections just two weeks away, the liberal media have ramped up their efforts to drag their dreamboat, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke over the finish line in the Texas Senate race. With President Trump’s visit to campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R) on Monday, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on the opportunity boast about Beto’s qualities while downplaying his poor poll numbers.
With the generic ballot getting tighter and Republican candidates increasingly pulling ahead in some races, the liberal media’s prediction (really more of a promise) of a “blue wave” seemed to be in jeopardy. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was holding out hope for the wave as he kicked off the panel discussion with reams of favorable numbers from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll recently released.
On Friday, far-left comedian Amy Schumer announced that the reason no one would be seeing her in Super Bowl ads next year was that she was boycotting on behalf of mediocre quarterback Colin Kaepernick. During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s liberal anchors celebrated Schumer’s decision and were interested in seeing if her “peer pressure” would cause a larger “celebrity boycott” of commercials and the halftime show.
At a recent campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, President Trump told the crowd that Democrats were “openly inviting millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overwhelm our nation. The Democrats want caravans. They like the caravans.” On Sunday, the liberal journalists of ABC’s Good Morning America were irritated that Trump would call them out and claimed there was no proof of that and said the allegation was “unfounded”.
Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke was the only candidate present at the CNN Texas Senate Town Hall Thursday night since GOP Senator Ted Cruz reportedly declined the invitation. During their first debate at Southern Methodist University, O’Rourke drew criticism and four Pinocchios from the Washington Post for lying about not trying to flee the scene of a car accident he caused when he drove while intoxicated. Despite the lie, it was never brought up by moderator Dana Bash or asked in the preselected questions from the audience.
For all the liberal media’s efforts to claim the Republican Party was trying to scare its base to the polls, they were really working hard to paint the GOP as racist bogeymen. During Thursday’s CBS Evening News, the broadcast network parroted Democratic talking points, asserting the GOP was purging the voter rolls in Georgia of minorities.
With the midterms just three weeks away, the radical left have been lashing out more and more against GOP candidates and lawmakers as Election Day drew closer. In recent days, the left has taken to even physically assaulting people on the right. This rash of attacks and threats had gone largely unreported on the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). But during Wednesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fox News anchor Trace Gallagher reported what the networks refused to.
Three weeks until the midterm elections and it’s Beto or bust in the Texas Senate race for the liberal media. During Wednesday’s edition of ABC’sWorld News Tonight, sensationalist anchor David Muir and Congressional correspondent Mary Bruce gushed about Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke and how he called Republican Senator Ted Cruz by President Trump’s 2016 nickname for him: ‘lyin’ Ted’. The nickname was thrown around five times in just the one report.
President Trump drew widespread condemnation from the liberal media on Tuesday after he put out a tweet describing porn star Stormy Daniels as having a “horseface” following news that a judge threw out a defamation suit she filed against him. And during CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the bitter banter between Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon (not exactly the epitome of civility) devolved into shots at Trump for not being a looker.
In a disturbing example of just how far down the gutter they had sunk, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured back-to-back reports hyping opponents of President Trump deriding him and First Lady Melania Trump in a sexual manner. In sharp contrast, their broadcast network competitors CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight were classy enough to leave the low brow attacks out of their programs.
To kick off NBC Nightly News on Monday, the network huffed about how Trump was walking the fine line with America’s partner. After noting reports suggesting the Saudis were preparing to admit to killing Jamal Khashoggi, anchor Lester Holt chided the President. “Word of the acknowledgment comes just hours after Trump seemed to accept Saudi denials of any involvement while speculating Khashoggi may have died at the hand of rogue killers,” he reported.
What was supposed to be a rebuke of President Trump’s ridicule ended up drawing more laughs from most and scorn from others. In an overly dramatized campaign video out Monday, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) released the results of a DNA test that suggested she did have a Native American ancestor. The catch? It’s possible she was only 1/1,024th Native American. Despite that fact, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) promoted her campaign message and portrayed her as the victor.
The liberal media have been itching to pin a death of a journalist on President Trump given his tough words and criticism for the American political press. And with the apparent murder, and reported dismemberment, of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of Saudi Arabia, there were a few members of the liberal media looking to exploit it. One such person was CNN media reporter Brian Stelter.
In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.
In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.
