Following Israel’s counterstrike against Iranian military forces in Syria in response to 20 missiles being launched int the Golan Heights late Wednesday into Thursday, ABC’s World News Tonight took to the airwaves Thursday to paint the United States and Israel as the cause of the confrontation. And meanwhile, on NBC Nightly News, chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel warned that the U.S.’s Israel embassy relocation to Jerusalem could push the Middle East “over the edge.”
Since Donald Trump's election, America's late-night show hosts have abandoned genuine comedy in favor of rabid, anti-Trump resistance. That's certainly their perogative. But if that's how they want it, they should be called out when they attempt to rewrite history as Stephen Colbert did Tuesday night. The Late Show host claimed that the now-nixed Iran deal was an "American promise," and a "treaty." It was obviously neither.
Here’s some unsolicited advice for right-of-center Trump critics or skeptics: Tune into MSNBC’s Deadline: White House for just a few minutes and it’ll turn you into the biggest Trump supporter on the planet. That was the case for anyone who tuned into Thursday’s show with host Nicolle Wallace leading a panel exhibiting why they want President Trump to fail and insinuated that he only cares about the midterm elections and not the safe return of three North Korean hostages.
On the Wednesday edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the panel went into full-on panic and hysteria mode as a result of President Trump deciding to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. Co-host Mika Brzezinski alleged that President Trump "doesn't have a moral compass" and said that "the President’s sanity is being questioned globally.” She also implied that President Trump pulled out of the Iran deal to “deflect” from the Stormy Daniels saga.
Joining Fox Business Network host Elizabeth MacDonald on the Wednesday edition of her new show The Evening Edit, the Media Research Center’s Research Director Rich Noyes spoke about the liberal media’s blatant “double standard” when it came to Iran deal coverage, trusting Barack Obama but not Donald Trump, and his latest study about negative network Trump coverage.
There was great news out of the Korean Peninsula Wednesday as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo retrieved the three Americans the North Korea arrested on trumped up charges going as far back as 2015. The North Korean regime released the hostages from their labor camps as a good faith measure ahead of the historic summit with the United States. Despite the wonderful news, ABC felt the need to rain on everyone’s parade and bring up the anti-American backlash from Iran over the Iran deal.
The same day the Trump administration was able to secure the release of three American hostages from North Korea in the run-up to the historic summit, CBS foreign correspondent Elizabeth Palmer was in the capital of Iran claiming the people felt like hostages of the same Trump administration. At the same time, she failed to mention Iran was actually holding several Americans captive.
As the headline indicated, it’s about time a former Obama official was called on the carpet. Thankfully, CNN political commentator and former George W. Bush special assistant Scott Jennings did that on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, blasting former Obama National Security Council member-turned CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd over her bitterness surrounding President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
On Wednesday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, liberal contributor Eddie Glaude complained that Americans are "okay with people dying" as the group discussed President Donald Trump decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran.
Just CNN and the major broadcast networks earlier Tuesday after President Trump’s Iran Deal speech, MSNBC’s Hardball was beside itself over the President’s decision to withdrawal the U.S. from the deal, dubbing it a victory for “chick hawks” like John Bolton drawing America into war with Iran while also “surrender[ing] the moral high ground to Iran.”
President Trump fulfilled his campaign promise to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal Tuesday, much to the screeching of the liberal media and world leaders. All three of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) began their evening news broadcasts in a tailspin, appalled by the President defying our allies, shattering our credibility as a country, and possibly leading us into a war. They each ran not one but two segments hyperventilating about the pull out. And a common theme was how it was damaging Obama’s legacy.
Former Democratic secretary of state John Kerry has been doing a little free-lance meddling with Iranian ministers on behalf of the now-kaput Iran deal, and an unhappy Trump accused Kerry on Twitter of “possible illegal Shadow Diplomacy” (i.e. violating the Logan Act). New York Times fact-checker Linda Qiu pounced: “Trump Lobs Legal Threat At Kerry. Scholars Shrug.”
