On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Gloria Borger filed a pre-recorded report in which she misleadingly portrayed liberal California Democratic Congressman and impeachment manager Adam Schiff as a "moderate" as she recounted his political career. Borger did not clarify that his voting record has never been moderate, and, after his already Democratic district became even more strongly liberal in 2013, Schiff further distanced himself from moderates by resigning from the Blue Dog Coalition.
In spite of the fact that the gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia on Monday saw absolutely zero violent incidents, both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News saw fit to taint their reports on the event with images from the Charlottesville, Virginia violence where white nationalists and left-wing protesters clashed.
Since there was no violence what so ever at the gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia on Monday, CBS Evening News apparently decided to make-up some fake news and claim there was. As fill-in anchor Maurice DuBois began discussing the event, he falsely claimed there was “more than a week” of “violence” leading up to the rally. But back in reality, there wasn’t.
It’s one of the most blatantly biased things a media outlet can do: openly endorse a candidate running for office. But during CNN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered Saturday evening, Cupp and chief media correspondent Brian Stelter lauded The New York Times for making a televised spectacle out of their Democratic endorsement announcement happening soon. They would admit the Times had an editorial board that leaned far-left and would endorse “anyone but Donald Trump.”
After Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s master plan to delay the Senate impeachment trial ended in failure after a month, House Democrats finally got up and walked the articles of impeachment against President Trump over to the Senate for trial. It was that transfer of documents that had the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all giddy with anticipation during their Wednesday evening newscasts.
Moments before midnight, following their Democratic presidential debate, CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and political director David Chalian boasted that former Vice President Joe Biden had what Democrats called the “chicken soup appeal.” According to them, this special appeal manifested in Biden’s ability to consistently remain the frontrunner and possibly be the cure for the illness, which was supposedly President Trump.
Despite the fact, there was no evidence that Russian meddling in the 2016 election had any influence on the result, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC warned they were at it again with a hack of the Ukrainian energy company that hired Hunter Biden. In the course of their fear-mongering reports, the networks suggested Russia was working on behalf of Trump, was the reason he got elected, and in one case insinuated Trump may have been working with the Russians. All of which were unfounded conspiracy theories.
With the murderous Iranian regime back in the headlines and the liberal media doing everything they could to make them look like victims of the United States (even after they shot down a passenger plane carrying 176 souls onboard), it’s worth taking a look at recent history and how the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have set up a smokescreen to hide Iran’s diabolical behavior. Here is a look back at NewsBusters reporting of the networks omitting new damaging to Iran.
David Marchese, staff writer and “Talk” columnist for the New York Times Magazine, got some things off his chest during a challenging interview with black Republican congressman Rep. Will Hurd of Texas. He clearly used the interview as his own personal anti-GOP gripe session: "Don’t you think that, for example, the Republican Party’s being the party generally in favor of stricter voter-ID laws -- laws that have a disproportionately negative effect on communities of color -- is as much a hindrance to the party’s ability to attract voters from those same communities as messaging?"
During a sit-down interview with NBC political director Chuck Todd on Sunday’s Meet the Press, President Trump’s national security adviser, Ambassador Robert O’Brien embarrassed his host by repeatedly schooling him on how much of threat Iranian General Soleimani was. On top of that, he called out the liberal media for taking a pro-Iran stance with their refusal to cover the regime’s massacre of civilian protesters.
Overnight, students of Iran’s polytechnic university in Tehran put their lives on the line by taking to the streets to call for an end to the radical regime ruling the country. It was a massive blow to the liberal media’s false narrative that the U.S. killing of General Qasem Soleimani somehow “united” Iranians. To further prove their initials stood for Ayatollah Broadcasting Company, the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America downplayed the protests as just the wild emotional throws of a people, even spending more time on frivolous nonsense such as British royal family and the Oscars.
Political reporter Jeremy Peters committed “strange new respect” for the religious left on the front of Saturday’s New York Times in “Why Buttigieg Is Putting Faith In the Spotlight.” Peters introduced Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg in the midst of doing his “standard riff on the role of faith in politics” in which he “castigated Republicans for using religion as a wedge to divide Americans." Peters admitted some voters find the “Rhodes scholar, military veteran and polyglot” a bit “precocious and lacking in empathy,” then spoke to a “civil rights activist” to lament the Democratic Party ceding faith issues. And who was this “civil rights activist”? Al Sharpton.
