Minutes before Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing began, ABC journalists were already spinning what Republicans would say as nonsense. ABC’s Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce and Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega dismissed Republicans as stooges for President Trump who would stop at nothing to disrupt the hearing with their “theatrics."
Putting his life at risk by traveling to a war zone, President Trump traveled secretly to Afghanistan to spend Thanksgiving with our troops on the ground, he even served them dinner. It was something special but ABC and NBC refused to check their petty politics at the door. In addition to reporting on his holiday visit, those networks decided to serve up the attacks of former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, who chose to resign recently after disagreeing with the President.
On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued the liberal media’s attempt to force-feed the American people every twist and turn of the left’s attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. Following up on their Monday night celebrations that a federal judge ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress, the ABC and NBC newscasts boasted about this new “blow” and “scathing judgement.”
Just like NBC did the night before, ABC continued conjecturing about President Trump’s health Tuesday morning, based off of an undisclosed visit to Walter Reed hospital over the weekend. Even though the White House doctor shut down rumors that Trump had a heart attack, the network dismissed that information to speculate that the White House was actually lying about Trump’s health.
Monday, the networks finally noticed the resignation of Democrat representative from California, Katie Hill, after nude photos were leaked of her online revealing she had an affair with one of her female staffers. On ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday, the network shamelessly defended the Democrat, blaming sexism and “double standards” for women caught in sex scandals.
All three network morning shows Wednesday spent reports blasting President Trump for comparing the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.” ABC, NBC and CBS seized on the racially-charged language, characterizing it as yet another example of Trump’s racial insensitivity. However, Joe Biden’s own history using the word to describe the Clinton impeachment, was given a pass by the networks, who couldn’t find the same outrage for the Democrat candidate.
On Friday, all three network morning shows seemed shocked that President Trump would spend time during a 2020 campaign rally Thursday night attacking Democrats over their impeachment push. Reporters were aghast that Trump would launch “vicious attacks on his Democratic rivals” and describe impeachment “in almost apocalyptic terms.”
Thursday all three networks reported on President Trump telling reporters Wednesday that the whistleblower is not only a registered Democrat, but actually worked for one of his 2020 rivals. Trump was referencing a report that came out Tuesday and that ABC and CBS had effectively ignored until they were forced to address it on Thursday’s morning shows. While each network touted the whistleblower’s lawyers denials, CBS was the only network to concede that their own reporting corroborated the whistleblower did indeed work for a 2020 rival. ABC, on the other hand, flatly denied this information, claiming this was just a “smear campaign” from the President.
During their Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning newscasts, the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on a newly released anonymous whistleblower memo that described the reaction of one White House official listening to President Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. The keywords that elevated their intrigue involved the official calling the call “crazy” and “frightening.”
After lying about the “favor” President Trump asked of the president of Ukraine last week, ABC’s World News Tonight was back with fresh lies to serve to their viewers during their Tuesday newscast. This time they set out to deceive folks about what kind of knowledge the so-called whistleblower actually had. Despite the whistleblower initially admitting they didn’t have first-hand knowledge about the phone call, ABC decried those who stated that fact.
In another blatant attempt by the liberal media to drum up resentment against President Trump with more false reporting, the Monday editions of ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News featured reports claiming the President was putting the life of the so-called “whistleblower” behind the Ukraine phone complaint, at risk.
Running in tandem with ABC’s televised coverage of their Democratic presidential debate on Thursday, the network also streamed coverage and analysis online. And during that stream, chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz gushed about the “really real authenticity” she felt from the candidates during their closing comments.
