Just as they were in their Wednesday morning special reports following the release of the transcript from the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, ABC and NBC were indignant and raging against the “unrepentant,” “untruthful” Trump following a press conference which they deemed to have been an incoherent mess.
On Wednesday, NBC’s Today show devoted over six minutes of air time to cheering longtime liberal reporter Andrea Mitchell receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the News and Documentary Emmys on Tuesday night. In a gushing montage of Mitchell’s 50-year career of biased reporting, NBC colleagues hailed her as “indefatigable” and a model of “fairness.”
It must be embarrassing for former Obama Administration officials and their friends in the media to talk about Russia and Ukraine, because they want to condemn President Trump for being soft on Russia, while ignoring their own actual record on the issue. With the Trump-Biden-Ukraine story dominating the news on Tuesday, Andrea Mitchell brought on former Obama CIA Director John Brennan to discuss the matter. Not content to condemn Trump for misbehavior, Mitchell and Brennan spread some fake news and revisionist history about the previous administration.
The journalists at NBC on Tuesday pounced on Donald Trump’s speech to the United Nations, immediately branding it a backwards, “19th century,” “wrong in tone” address that caters only to the interests of America. Additionally, six of the ten minutes devoted to the live, post-speech reaction were actually focused on Ukraine and impeachment.
With the liberal media's psuedo-religious devotion for gun control, it's no surprise that they greeted the PSA from the group Sandy Hook Promise with open arms. So on Friday, our friends Charles Fain Lehman and David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon published a study that found he video aired nine times in two days on NBC News and cable partner MSNBC.
In the wake of multiple news reports that a secret CIA asset close to Vladimir Putin was spirited away in 2017 over fears Russian intelligence had uncovered him, NBC News decided to act on claims Russian officials made about the man’s identity and tracked down the asset themselves. The visit from NBC national security correspondent Ken Dilanian apparently prompted the U.S. government to move the asset and his family. It was something the network seemed proud of during Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News.
Throughout her interview with former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell repeatedly urged him to criticize Trump. After Mattis refused to do so, Mitchell lectured: “Do you fear that you might be normalizing the decisions of this president because you are so critical of his predecessors?”
For her Tuesday show, Andrea Mitchell welcomed an unbalanced panel of Daily Beast editor Sam Stein and two Democratic partisans to discuss gun control. The gun control portion of the panel began with Mitchell playing some clips of Democratic presidential hopefuls discussing gun control, the last of which was Kamala Harris, "We've been having great ideas for decades. The problem is congress has not had the courage to act. If they don't within the first 100 days of my administration I'm going to take executive action."
Network journalists on Monday night and Tuesday morning hailed the “icon” “rock star” Ruth Bader Ginsburg, insisting that “everybody loves” one of their “favorite women.” Going beyond cheering the recovery the Supreme Court justice from cancer — something every decent person should do — the hosts seemed to assume that most Americans appreciate her hard-left ideology.
On Monday afternoon, Andrea Mitchell used her MSNBC show to give gun control activist Fred Guttenberg an unchallenged forum to bash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and advocate for universal background checks. Mitchell went along with him by citing misleading polls alleging near unanimous support for such reforms by the public.
On Monday, all three network morning shows were giddy over two weak challengers against President Trump in the 2020 Republican primary and even hoping for more quixotic candidates to enter the race. NBC and ABC touted ex-Congressman Joe Walsh issuing a “stinging rebuke” to Trump while CBS again urged contributor and former Senator Jeff Flake to jump in the contest.
Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
