On Thursday and Friday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today show celebrated left-wing student activists around the world preparing to walk out of their classrooms to “demand action on climate change.” The CBS report took a particularly dark turn as correspondent Tony Dokoupil warned of “a future that might not even exist” for the young protesters.
Appearing on the third hour of NBC’s Today show on Tuesday, former Tonight Show host Jay Leno lamented how “everyone has to know your politics” now if you’re a late-night comedian. He mentioned that he prided himself on not letting viewers know his political views and feared that many comedians have become too “one-sided” when it comes to politics.
On ABC’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos framed today’s congressional testimony from ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen not as a case of an admitted liar potentially seeking to avoid the consequences of his crimes, but as an “epic,” “historic,” “Watergate”-style showdown, with Cohen playing the role of Nixon White House whistleblower John Dean.
During the third hour of NBC’s Today show on Monday, the hosts were thrilled to welcome “feminist icon” Gloria Steinem to the broadcast as they touted a new edition of her book, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, being released. Amid all the adulation, Steinem felt comfortable claiming how “relevant” a decades-old essay of hers remained, in which she compared the pro-life movement to Nazism.
Swept up in the hysteria of the latest government report on climate change, during the third hour of NBC’s Today show on Thursday, meteorologist Dylan Dreyer suggested that if humanity simply “disappeared” the planet “would go back and just be fine.” Fellow forecaster Al Roker defensively lectured that the new climate findings were “not from some conspiracy group.”
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.”
NBC’s Today on Thursday decried “sin” in America. Of course, it’s the sin of not doing enough to fight climate change. The morning show profiled an evangelical church in Washington D.C. that is lobbying Christians to take a stand on global warming. After Dr. Katharine Hayhoe talked about the responsibility to save the Earth, Al Roker marveled, “Amen to that. We are stewards of this Earth. And to not take care of it and to not take action is a sin.”
During an appearance on Tuesday’s Today show in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour, former Vice President Al Gore praised NBC weatherman Al Roker for giving “long-time attention to the climate crisis” and “connecting the dots” on the issue. Gore appeared on the morning show while simultaneously taking part in a 24-hour livestream event to raise awareness about the favorite liberal agenda item.
The in-studio audience during the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of NBC’s Today show on Tuesday did not find it funny when comedian Lewis Black compared Donald Trump’s presidency to having a “stroke.” After he made the joke, the hosts were clearly taken aback and only crickets could be heard from the audience.
Amid all the media hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious 60 Minutes interview, one common theme that emerged on Monday morning was all three broadcast networks fretting over his skepticism of man-made climate change. Anchors and correspondents were aghast that Trump could have any doubt in the wake of a recent “dire” United Nations report on the global climate.
After the liberal media spent years telling viewers that climate change would increase the frequency and severity of hurricanes, on Friday, NBC’s Today show weatherman Al Roker revealed that the changing climate would actually decrease the number of storms during the upcoming hurricane season.
After preaching about climate change on Friday’s Today show, Al Roker filled in for vacationing Megyn Kelly in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour and led a panel discussion celebrating liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announcing that she wouldn’t retire from the bench for at least another five years.
