The June jobs report was more good news for American job seekers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced July 6, that 213,000 new jobs were added in June.
That was more than economists expected. The prior two months were also revised up, adding another 37,000 jobs.
It took a few days for the horrific news to make its way to major outlets but on Thursday, CBS was the only broadcast network to inform its viewers of a nationwide manhunt for a group of men accused of kidnapping and raping two teenage girls. Authorities captured two of the men involved and believed they were in the U.S. illegally.
Just a few hours before President Trump was scheduled to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for a historic summit for peace and denuclearization on Monday, CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga chided the President’s ability to negotiate in the United States’ best interest.
For two days now, the liberal media’s anti-Israel smears have grown wilder and arguably begun to border on something more. The Tuesday evening broadcasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were no exception as they mourned with the Palestinians on the day they call the “catastrophe,” or the anniversary of Israel’s creation.
At the end of March, after a private autopsy on police shooting victim Stephon Clark was conducted at his family's request which alleged that the police mostly shot him in the back and lied about him charging at them, the dominant media pounced on the story, with all three broadcast networks opening their March 30 newscasts with full reports on the development. But, since the Sacramento county autopsy was released this week which suggests Clark was, in fact, charging at the police with half the bullets hitting him in the side, and contradicting the family autopsy, the same networks have shown little interest in updating viewers with a development that defends the cops.
Perhaps feeling the heat over her kind words for accused sexual abuser Charlie Rose, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King backtracked on Friday and said of the investigation: “Let the chips fall where they may.” On Thursday, King declared she was “sick” of covering the sex allegations against her “friend” and former colleague.
CNN Newsroom host John Berman opened the show Wednesday with a "Kaboom!", intended to serve as a "not so dramatic re-enactment of the political explosion that went off last night." The political explosion Berman referred to was Democrat Conor Lamb's strong performance and potential victory in the special election for Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District, a district President Trump carried by 20 points in the 2016 presidential election.
CNN’s The Situation Room continued on Wednesday the liberal media narrative to condemn any questioning of the FBI and Mueller investigation, deeming it the sort of thing meant to confuse and permanently “discredit” institutions that occur in authoritarian regimes like Russia and Turkey.
Since Thursday, CBS News has run two different reports -- both by correspondent Jan Crawford -- which fearmonger about the possibility that private charities and millions of people who benefit from them will suffer because the new tax cuts passed by Republicans would result in fewer people taking tax deductions for charitable contributions as in the past. Not much thought was given to the possibility that if people's taxes are being cut, they might donate even more money to charities, as Crawford was preoccupied with people who will stop itemizing who might therefore lose interest in making donations.
Following Minnesota Senator Al Franken announcing his resignation on Thursday amid a series of sexual harassment allegations, CBS News special coverage of the lawmaker’s departure lamented what a “big blow” it was for the Democratic Party to lose someone with such a “nationwide progressive profile.” Anchor Bianna Golodryga even grieved “the end to a potentially storied career.”
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows touted the “immediate backlash” against President Trump’s decision to reduce the size of two national monuments in Utah. Little, if any, attention was paid to supporters of the decision, but liberal opponents threatening legal action got all the headlines.
Saturday, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller removed a top FBI investigator from the Russia probe, after it was discovered the agent had sent anti-Trump text messages. Not only that, but this same agent also led the Clinton e-mail investigation.
