CBS and PBS host Charlie Rose has been accused by eight women of sexual harassment, including groping and walking around naked in front of female colleagues. This is the same CBS This Morning journalist who offered to spank his co-host, Norah O’Donnell. On April 21, 2016, after showing video of lemurs playing, Rose blurted, “It’s either that or [the lemur’s] spanking himself.”
After the shocking and serious allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore broke on Thursday, the networks on Friday jumped to tar all conservatives, reminding audiences that Moore is a “far-right,” “hard-line,” “devout Christian conservative” “Republican.” This is not how controversial Democrats get treated when they run into trouble.
Threats against Trump administration officials have become deadly serious. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt requested 24/7 security protection back in April and had to beef up his security detail again in October, because of the high number of threats against him and his family.
A furious round of liberal-on-liberal violence broke out on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning. The show’s hosts confronted former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile for daring to expose Hillary Clinton’s efforts to hobble any contenders in the 2016 primaries. The normally friendly (to liberals) Gayle King dismissed Brazile as “bitter” and “angry.” Co-host Norah O’Donnell questioned Brazile’s truthfulness.
Barack Obama’s official photographer has released a book of pictures and the co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Monday, unsurprisingly, went nuts for it. Norah O’Donnell deemed it “beautiful.” Charlie Rose hailed the “fantastic” cover photo of the ex-President. This comes only a few weeks of a photo book on Michelle Obama. ABC deemed that “picture perfect.”
CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose on Wednesday hyped the open enrollment period for ObamaCare, spinning good news for the law and skimping on the massive problems ahead. Rose cheered, “Eighty percent of people can find a 2018 plan for under $75 a month. In 2017 only 71 percent could.”
With the breaking news that ex-Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been charged with tax fraud, who would be the ideal person to talk about it? According to CBS This Morning on Monday, it’s the liberal, partisan Democrat Amy Klobuchar. Co-host Norah O’Donnell eagerly wondered, “So, the question has always been about collusion and the Trump campaign which remains the open question, right?”
The New York Times carried a column last weekend by Maureen Dowd where Jimmy Carter shocked the liberals by saying the media "feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation." Times columnist Thomas Friedman took it to a new level on Wednesday's Charlie Rose on PBS. Trump isn't mentally ill...he's a brain-eating disease.
After all three network morning shows provided Tennessee Senator Bob Corker with a platform to bash President Trump on Tuesday, on Wednesday, the broadcasts eagerly brought on Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to do the same. During the series of softball interviews, each host asked a version of the same question, should the President be “removed from office”? Meanwhile, only CBS bothered to ask about the lawmaker’s unpopularity in his own state.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows encouraged Tennessee Senator and outspoken Trump critic Bob Corker to step up his attacks on the President. Hosts asked the Republican lawmaker if he thought the commander-in-chief was a “threat to national security,” wondered “what’s being done about it” in Congress, and invited him to double-down on his harshest rhetoric against the President.
On Tuesday's Charlie Rose show on PBS, former magazine editor Tina Brown -- who ran The New Yorker, Newsweek, and for a short time a Harvey Weinstein-backed magazine called Talk -- spoke about working with Harvey. Rose barely questioned Brown, and just let her talk. Access Hollywood picked up a piece of this conversation -- about how the movie mogul could buy writers' silence with money, and if he couldn't, he could above their pay grade to editors and kill negative stories that way.
After Thursday’s network evening newscasts feared that President Trump’s executive action curtailing ObamaCare regulations was a threat to Barack Obama’s legacy, on Friday morning, the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning shows launched into full panic mode over “the biggest move to undermine ObamaCare yet” and touted how “Democrats call the move pointless sabotage.”
