With the Thursday release of the Special Counsel report reiterating that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and at least partially explaining why there was no charge on obstruction, the next concern for ABC and CBS was the status of Democratic efforts to impeach the President.
There was collusion, so much collusion we’re swimming it! That’s according to bombastic CNN host Chris Cuomo and washed up Watergate-era reporter Carl Bernstein. Not only was there “a ton of collusion” but if you didn’t realize that after reading the Mueller Report, you’re just not that smart and too political, they declared late Thursday afternoon.
While many in the Democratic Party were fine defending anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), on Wednesday we learned there were some that reject her and her money. According to reports and campaign finance filings, at least two congressional Democrats had either rejected contributions from Omar or refunded her the money. This bucking of the party’s normalization of anti-Semitism sadly went unreported during the evening news programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
As if it somehow sank the conservative agenda or upended a Fox News narrative, the ABC and CBS Tuesday evening news programs hailed the heavily Democratic Fox News town hall audience that cheered for Bernie Sander’s Medicare for All healthcare plan.
Morning Joe airs a clip of Nancy Pelosi, in an interview in London on April 15th, recycling the myth of hunger in America. Pelosi falsely claims that "one in five children in America goes to sleep hungry at night." The true statistic is that about 1-in-100 children in America experiences hunger once a year. On any given night, about one in 1,000 children go to sleep hungry.
In her first time back on CBS Evening News following her maternity leave Monday, White House correspondent Weijia Jiang appeared to take a swipe at Trump supporters for fueling the feud between President Trump and anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN-D). In her report, Jiang put the blame for the “conflict” on Trump while downplaying Omar’s role and anti-Semitism.
Freshman Democratic Rep. from Minnesota Ilhan Omar has gotten herself into trouble again and members of the media are rushing to her defense and condemning Republicans for their reaction to her comments.
"In the wake of Pete Buttigieg's announcement speech of yesterday, Morning Joe is filled with praise of him, calling him a "hero," with "echoes of the Kennedys." The panel also criticizes the candidacy of Hillary Clinton, and Mika Brzezinski suggests that the notion that Beto O'Rourke is the Kennedyesque candidate is "contrived" whereas Buttigieg feels "much more natural" and real.
By now, you’ve undoubtedly seen the disgusting 9/11 comments made by anti-Semite Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN-D) before the terrorism-supporting Council on American Islamic Relations. Well, during Sunday’s so-called Reliable Sources, CNN host and media dung-sweeper Brian Stelter defended her while denouncing conservative media for cooking up the controversy. He likened it to “an arsonist lighting a match”.
South Bend, Indiana mayor, Pete Buttigieg (D) was set to formally announce his candidacy for president on Sunday and ABC’s Good Morning America completely bought into the hype and tried to amplify it. According to co-host Whit Jonson, the network sent chief national correspondent Matt Gutman to South Bend to “look at Mayor Pete and the momentum he's building.”
One more indictment that came as a result of the Trump-Russia probe came tumbling down the pike on Thursday, when a former White House counsel for President Obama was charged with lying to investigators about his foreign lobbying work for Ukraine. If that sounds familiar, it’s because that’s similar to what former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort was convicted of. But despite the similarities, the airtime dedicated to the indictment by the broadcast networks was grossly lopsided.
The state of Ohio took a great stride in protecting the life of unborn children Thursday when Governor Mike DeWine signed into law a ban on abortions after a heartbeat was detected from the developing child. But the noble pursuit of protecting children apparently wasn’t something NBC News favored, seeing as they decried the law during Thursday’s Nightly News.
