When it became clear that Democratic and liberal media darlings Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum were likely to lose their respective races in Georgia and Florida, senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and Nightline co-host Byron Pitts sought to blame racism for people not electing them.
Within moments of the broadcast networks coming on the air Tuesday night with their midterm coverage, ABC, CBS, and NBC had the long knives out for Republicans, condemning their “nativist,” “white-hot rhetoric” creating “one of the most divisive midterms in our lifetime” that was marred by “hate, violence and tragedy.”
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
The move to nominate Jeff Flake for sainthood has commenced in the liberal media. His move last Friday to delay a final vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination brought fawning coverage from ABC’s Nightline on Monday night. Co-host Byron Pitts swooned that, to some, he’s a “hero” who “soothed the nation.”
For some reason, CNN decided that it would air the latest installment of its comprehensive and informative miniseries on recent decades in America history with the 2000s despite the fact that many of the same actors, elected officials, journalists, and TV shows remained relevant into this decade.
Immediately following President Trump’s positive State of the Union address, which ABC complained was “divisive” “gloomy” and “sad,” the same ABC team was still in meltdown mode two hours later on Nightline. But newly instated ABC News contributor Chris Christie was the only one to declare the truth of the matter, that Democrats had become so partisan that there wasn’t “anything” he could’ve said that night to appease them.
Well, that didn’t take long. Minutes before President Trump’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday, the major broadcast networks pulled out the long knives to attack the “embattled” and “deeply unpopular” President leading a GOP that’s “paying the political price in recent special elections” for a presidency whom people believe is working “against them.”
My friends, it’s happened. Following President Obama’s farewell address on Tuesday night, ABC poured out warm fuzzes for the President as the assembled liberal journalists bowed down to his “sermon on democracy” doubling as a “song of hope” of “what can look like that we are now a diverse nation.”
Immediately following last night’s Vice-Presidential Debate, analysts at ABC were eager to downplay Kaine’s constant interruptions and highlight Pence’s “false” claims instead. The next morning’s coverage of the debate on ABC was more of the same, with Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl declaring Pence as “less than factual.” ABC did not bother to call out Kaine even once for any of his false statements. CBS, however, did fact-check both candidates equally.
ABC became the first Big Three network to cover the felony conviction of the Democratic attorney general of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, on the early Wednesday edition of Nightline. Byron Pitts spotlighted the downfall of the "rising star in Pennsylvania's Democratic Party," who went from being endorsed by Bill Clinton to being a "convicted criminal." ABC's morning and evening newscasts still haven't covered the Kane story, nor have their competitors at CBS and NBC.
By virtue of its late-night time slot, ABC’s Nightline received the first crack among the major broadcast networks at reacting to Thursday’s Republican presidential debate and, as per the liberal media’s pattern, made all candidates not named Donald Trump an afterthought as three minutes and 34 seconds out of the six-minute-and-58-second segment were devoted to Trump and his boycott of the debate.
Liberal journalists applaud President Obama's unilateral action against the Second Amendment, with ABC's Byron Pitts dubbing Obama "America's parent-in-chief," while MSNBC/Bloomberg analyst Mark Halperin declaring he's "proud" of how Obama is approaching "a national crisis that needs to be addressed." At the same time, a Newsweek reporter makes a sickening Nazi analogy to Ted Cruz's Iowa supporters, and Joy Behar admits she'd rather vote for a rapist than a conservative.
