On Thursday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows all quickly accepted talking points from House Democrats that President Trump suffered a “meltdown” during a White House meeting with them on Wednesday afternoon. While some administration push-back was included in the coverage, reporters on all three networks laid blame for the Democrats walking out of that meeting solely on the President.
Big tech has presented many problems for the legislators in Washington to tackle. One of those is regulation. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle have discussed government regulation of Big Tech. Government regulation and amending Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act are seen as a solution to the scandals plaguing tech companies.
Once again, pompous leftist, MSNBC host, NBC News political director, and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd cloaked himself as someone who’s above the fray on Wednesday’s MTP Daily, insisting that he’s like “a lot of us who — who don’t live in partisan places.” Todd’s delusional take simultaneously occurred while decrying Republicans as the ones playing political games by criticizing President Trump on Syria but opposing his impeachment.
On Monday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour gave liberal actress Jane Fonda a forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming, picking up on the veteran political activist's recent push to hold a weekly protest outside the U.S. Capitol on the issue. The liberal activist railed against the fossil fuel industry, fearmongered about there allegedly being only a decade left in which to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and complained that American "individualism" is a problem.
With the news that the State Department had blocked Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from testifying to Congress on Tuesday, CNN Newsroom went live to Capitol Hill for reaction. After showing remarks from Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, co-host Jim Sciutto continued the media's new favorite hobby of pretentious fact-checking when he charged Jordan with not telling the truth on Adam Schiff's meeting with the whistleblower, but in the end it was Sciutto who needed the fact-checker.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows breathlessly seized on House Democrats reportedly “considering extreme measures” to conceal the identity of the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. Reporters on ABC, NBC, and CBS touted schemes by liberal lawmakers to disguise the appearance or voice of the anonymous government official in order for him or her to testify before Congress.
During her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle cherry-picked a hostile town hall question directed at Republican Iowa Senator Joni Ernst about the impeachment of President Trump. After hailing the questioner, Ruhle and her panel of anti-Trump guests proceeded to label the President a “sociopath” and demanded his GOP “enablers” turn against him.
Wednesday brought the revelation that House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff lied to Sam Stein on MSNBC's Morning Joe on September 17. Naturally enough, Thursday on another MSNBC show, MSNBC Live, host Hallie Jackson decided to play up the "Republicans Seize" angle with NBC's Ken Dilanian. At least they didn't pounce.
Leading off Thursday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, host Chuck Todd did his best Chicken Little impression, staging through a hoarse voice an uncomfortable meltdown that declared America was in the midst of a “national nightmare” with President Trump “attack[ing]” our democracy. So not only did Todd flaunt his support for impeachment while imploring Americans to come together and overthrow the Trump administration, but he later insulted millions on the right by painting them as what ills our political division (just like he did last week with one Republican Senator).
After NBC Nightly News was the only evening newscast on Wednesday to even acknowledge that the CIA whistleblower consulted with a staffer for House Democrat Adam Schiff before filing a formal complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning worked to downplay the bombshell revelation. Meanwhile, ABC’s Good Morning America maintained the network’s silence.
After the ABC and CBS evening newscasts on Monday hyped fears that President Trump was supposedly endangering the life of an anonymous government whistleblower by demanding to know the identity of the impeachment accuser, on Tuesday, Good Morning America wildly speculated that the President’s request could itself be an impeachable offense.
Move over Robert Mueller, the liberal media have found a new love. With House Democrats announcing an impeachment inquiry against President Trump over his phone call with the president of Ukraine, the media promptly dropped the Special Counsel’s inconclusive Russia investigation in favor of the latest promise of Trump’s political downfall. Reporters even went so far as to admit Mueller’s two-year effort was a “confusing” and “convoluted” flop.
