As the midterm elections approach, TV news hosts have abdicated their role as reporters to become partisan cheerleaders, inundating the airwaves with portrayals of Democratic candidates as lovable celebrities. The same media who relentlessly hammered Republicans with 88-percent negative midterm coverage have stubbornly refused to cover Democratic scandals, while praising their favorite candidates as “rock stars.”
Friday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, white house correspondent Cecilia Vega bashed President Trump for using “fear” tactics and “hard-line immigration rhetoric” as his “election strategy” for the upcoming midterms, echoing her colleagues in defending the illegal caravan as poor women and children “fleeing from violence.”
Between Wednesday and Thursday, several MSNBC anchors have continued to push discredited claims of "voter suppression" by Georgia Republicans, with host Ali Velshi giving credence to the claims on both days. On Wednesday afternoon shortly before 4:00 p.m. Eastern, during a segment with Adrianne Shropshire of BlackPAC as his guest, Velshi posed:
It’s always funny when a member of the liberal media pretends that they’re not in lock step with the Democratic Party. During the later portion of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, incendiary CNN host Don Lemon proclaimed that he didn’t belong to any political party and was an “Independent” just like Democratic Party campaign star Oprah Winfrey.
Legendary TV personality Oprah Winfrey stumped for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia on Thursday and the liberal media couldn’t get enough of it. During their evening news programs, the major broadcast networks celebrated her efforts as they gushed about her going door-to-door and surprising voters.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports Thursday afternoon, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd praised liberal media mogul Oprah Winfrey’s stump speech for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, touting the address a contrast between the former talk show host’s “better angels” and President Trump’s “darker demons.”
In an exclusive interview with President Trump broadcasted on Thursday’s Good Morning America, White House correspondent Jonathan Karl badgered the president on just about every issue, from the illegal alien caravan to the midterms. Starting with the caravan, anchor George Stephanopoulos led into the interview by mocking the president’s call to send thousands of troops to the border.
The 2018 midterms were less than a week away and the liberal media were already looking forward to the 2020 Presidential election and dreaming about the candidates they would back against President Trump. During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, they were fantasizing about Oprah Winfrey going toe-to-toe Trump and touting her efforts to get Democrats elected in 2018.
During their Halloween (Wednesday) night broadcast, CBS’s costume surely wasn’t that of an unbiased news organization. During CBS Evening News, anchor Jeff Glor noted that “at least six candidates in this midterm election are campaigning under a legal or ethics cloud, including criminal indictments, an assault conviction, investigations, and a severe admonishment by Congressional Ethics Committees.” But when they flashed images of the candidates, only one of them was a Democrat.
On her Tuesday afternoon show, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell gave former Virginia Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe an unchallenged forum to repeat discredited claims that Georgia Republicans have engaged in "voter suppression" targeting black voters.
With just one week before the Midterm elections, The View brought on media-hyped Democrat candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams of Georgia, to tout her party’s highly misleading claims that blacks are being denied votes in that state due to her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp. In fact, the only host on the show to press Abrams on her actual policy positions was right-leaning Meghan McCain.
Tuesday on MSNBC, contributor Eddie Glaude ranted that President Trump was appealing to racism and “whiteness” by talking about the migrant caravan as “invaders” this close to the midterms and feared that “white children” would learn to be racists from the President. The MSNBC panel even tied in the immigration talk to the recent violent hate crimes at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kroger grocery store.
