On Monday’s Today show, NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker eagerly touted the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 50 percent of Americans blamed President Trump for the partial government shutdown. However, missing from her report was any mention of the survey showing a rise in negative opinion of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
During the Third Hour of NBC’s Today show on Thursday, weatherman Al Roker was eager to discuss the latest poll about climate change: “I want to know how America feels about global warming.” Fellow co-host Craig Melvin thanked him for setting up the story and proceeded to tout the new survey “that 73% of Americans polled said that global warming is happening.”
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd eagerly touted the latest Gallup poll showing 51% of Democrats and 26% of Americans overall identifying themselves as “liberal.” He excitedly told viewers that “Democrats are embracing the label” and that it was “no longer a dirty word” in politics.
On Tuesday's New Day show, CNN host Alisyn Camerota gave Parkland gun control activists David Hogg and Jaclyn Corin a forum to promote their agenda as she also repeated discredited polling which claims 97 percent of Americans want a "universal background check" law that would be applied to all gun purchases.
With just two days to go until the polls closed on the midterm elections, Republicans were working hard to get out their base and liberal media were working hard to get out the Democratic Party’s base. During the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America, they touted President Trump’s job approval rating slipping to 40 percent. Despite that good news to them, co-anchor Dan Harris was seemingly dismayed as he turned to Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos, asking: “why is this not a blowout?”
With the generic ballot getting tighter and Republican candidates increasingly pulling ahead in some races, the liberal media’s prediction (really more of a promise) of a “blue wave” seemed to be in jeopardy. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd was holding out hope for the wave as he kicked off the panel discussion with reams of favorable numbers from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll recently released.
Three weeks until the midterm elections and it’s Beto or bust in the Texas Senate race for the liberal media. During Wednesday’s edition of ABC’sWorld News Tonight, sensationalist anchor David Muir and Congressional correspondent Mary Bruce gushed about Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke and how he called Republican Senator Ted Cruz by President Trump’s 2016 nickname for him: ‘lyin’ Ted’. The nickname was thrown around five times in just the one report.
In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.
On Wednesday morning, CNN's New Day show devoted its "Reality Check" segment to complaining that President Donald Trump has not been as liberal on gay rights as they expected he might be when he was running for President.
On Friday's New Day show on CNN, during a discussion of the upcoming congressional midterm elections and high desires by Democrats to defeat Texas Senator Ted Cruz, CNN Politics senior writer Harry Enten actually declared that, "unfortunately," Cruz is ahead of Democrat Beto O'Rourke in most of the polls.
Wednesday's The Beat on MSNBC displayed the latest example of the liberal media's tendency to trumpet polls that seem to confirm their liberal views while ignoring other polling which undermines those views. During a discussion about the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade if Judge Brett Kavanaugh were confirmed, host Ari Melber turned to pro-abortion activist Ricki Stern and cited a recent Axios poll as he posed:
Appearing as a guest on Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt started railing against Republican candidates running in this year's Senate and congressional elections, applying the words "kook," "nut," "crook" and "weirdo" to several different candidates.
