In their rush to defend the World Health Organization from President Trump’s criticism of the agency’s failures in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, on Wednesday, journalists on CBS and ABC ignored that the WHO initially promoted false Chinese propaganda about the disease and routinely lavished the authoritarian regime with effusive praise.
Communist China knew about the coronavirus for months and wasted critical time trying to silence those who tried to warn the world. But broadcast networks ABC and NBC seemed intent to help the Chinese propaganda machine cover up those facts on Wednesday as they insisted President Trump was being “racist” by calling it the “Chinese Virus”. ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega even insinuated Trump was trying to unfairly shift blame onto the communists.
During Wednesday’s coronavirus press conference at the White House, ABC’s Cecilia Vega and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor worked together to claim that President Trump’s use of the term “Chinese virus” was “racist” and “puts Asian Americans at risk.” Alcindor even touted rumors of an unknown administration official using an offensive term to describe the disease.
Monday’s press conference on the continued spread of the coronavirus crisis saw President Trump strike a tone of seriousness that few presidents had needed to do. While the media had been suggesting Trump was only concerned about stock market numbers, he admitted that the country might be headed into a recession. Despite the President’s new warnings to the American people about the crisis, ABC’s World News Tonight was still intent on scoring cheap political points.
Despite Americans’ real fears about the coronavirus spreading, ABC’s Good Morning America felt no responsibility to try to calm those fears with facts, Friday morning. Instead, co-anchor Cecilia Vega tried to play politics, as usual, while speaking with National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, by repeatedly attempting to bait him to bash President Trump.
On Monday, the network morning shows predictably all seized on an open letter from former Justice Department officials demanding the resignation of Attorney General William Barr. However, the broadcasts conveniently left out the fact that several of the ex-DOJ employees who signed on to the letter currently serve as professional anti-Trump pundits on CNN and MSNBC.
With NBC need of a panic room on Tuesday night after President Trump’s State of the Union and CBS needing a thank you card from Trump, ABC came down closer to the peacock network. For ABC, they repeatedly harped on the “political” President honoring the “controversial and divisive” and “racist” Rush Limbaugh to what they deemed a slap in the face to the Tuskegee Airmen Trump hailed earlier in his speech.
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.
