The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated almost three and a half minutes (3:28) of their Thanksgiving eve newscasts to hyperventilating about whether or not high winds would keep the balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade grounded. Meanwhile, the economic growth numbers from the summer were out and showed more positive news. NBC Nightly News was the only newscast to mention the growth, but they quickly dismissed it in favor of fretting over the trade war with China.
While the Iran-friendly broadcast networks had previously defended the authoritarian regime from Trump administration accusations they cheated President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, they were nowhere to been seen Monday night when a leaked, “confidential” International Atomic Energy Agency report exposed how the United Nations organization discovered uranium particles of “anthropogenic origin” at a previously undeclared location.
The stock market hit yet another record high on Thursday, following reports that the United States and China would ease tariffs as part of a pending trade deal. But ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News refused to share the great news for American consumers. Instead, they both chose to celebrate reports of the possibility former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was getting ready to jump into the 2020 Democratic primary.
A week ago, CBS and NBC were enthralled by footage of Washington Nationals fans booing President Trump and chanting “lock him up” at game five of the World Series. But when Nationals players visited the White House on Monday, they praised the President for making the country great with one sporting his “Make America Great Again” hat. Those same networks ignored the event while hyping the release of transcripts from the Democratic-led impeachment investigation.
Joe Scarborough turns his lonely eyes . . . to Fox News? Looks that way. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough dreamed of a scenario in which Fox News would turn against President Trump, thus bringing down his presidency. Scarborough analogized it to a "Cronkite moment." That was the moment in 1968 when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite essentially declared the Vietnam War unwinnable, thereby turning a chunk of American public opinion against it. LBJ was reported as having said at the time, “if I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.”
At an Obama Foundation event on Tuesday, former President Barack Obama made headlines by denouncing the purity test his party had set up for their 2020 presidential candidates and called on the left to end their so-called cancel culture, which aims to ruin people’s lives with false activism. But none of the liberal broadcast networks heeded his call and omitted it from their morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday.
Gayle King and the journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday grilled Fox News anchor Bret Baier about the departure of Shepard Smith from the network, baiting him to divine what exactly Smith meant when he said that the “truth will always matter.” Appearing to talk about his latest historical book, co-host Tony Dokoupil highlighted, “I think it surprised a lot of people at the network. He said in his closing remarks, ‘The truth will always matter.’ What was your reaction?”
Hot off the presses is the highly anticipated Ronan Farrow book, Catch and Kill, detailing the dubious actions on the part of NBC in an effort to cover up allegations of sexual misconduct within its own walls. Farrow granted an interview with Fox’s Special Report Wednesday to discuss the need for accountability on the part of the network and the media as a whole.
In a Wednesday bombshell by The New York Times, which confirmed what many suspected, Democratic Congressman and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (CA) was apparently tipped off to the whistleblower complaint before it was filed. Meanwhile, during their evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News latched onto soundbites of Schiff accusing President Trump of wrongdoing and ignored the accusations against Schiff.
The New York Times spun the crank on the liberal media outrage machine one more time, on Monday, when they published a story panicking over Attorney General William Barr speaking to Australia during the course of his investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. And while ABC, CBS, and NBC were up in arms that same evening, the panel on Fox News Channel’s Special Report put the brakes on their narrative with some inconvenient truth.
While the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were busy fawning over the bitter ranting of radical climate teen Greta Thunberg at the United Nations on Monday, they completely ignored her cohorts in Washington, D.C. staging an illegal protest to shut down the city’s major traffic arteries, resulting in an all-day traffic nightmare in the nation’s capital.
On Fox News Channel's Special Report, panelist Amy Walter says: "if right now a Democratic president said let’s ban all handguns, all firearms of all sorts, the Democratic mayor of Chicago would be like great, sign me up. I’m happy to do it. And you can’t sell guns anywhere to in or around any state, they would be happy to do it." Panelist Matthew Continetti observes: "and that would be the end of the Democratic party."
