Breaking in with live coverage Friday, before and after the Senate vote to proceed onto the confirmation vote Saturday of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ABC News’s Cokie Roberts, Jon Karl, Mary Bruce, David Muir and Terry Moran slammed the proceedings and the nominee as “very partisan” and an example of how sexual assault victims would be treated. Roberts saved her harshest rebuke for Kavanaugh, claiming that he was a symbol now of every woman who has been sexually assaulted.
During ABC’s coverage of the Kavanaugh hearings, correspondent Terry Moran described Kavanaugh as “a man struggling to keep himself from disintegrating, from falling apart on national TV.” He added that Kavanaugh “roared with anger, unjudicious raw anger, and wept, as Cokie pointed out.”
After Christine Blasey Ford has finished testifying Thursday afternoon, ABC News broke in with their special panel to boast that Ford’s testimony would “rewrite history” and “sweep away” Judge Kavanaugh, regardless of his own innocence or testimony.
In the immediate aftermath of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday morning, ABC broke in at the first recess to offer a full fledged backing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser as not only absolutely credible, but one of the most relatable and personable women in the #MeToo era. The analysts also determined the hearing was already a disaster for Republicans, President Trump and Kavanaugh’s chances of being confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Cracks have formed this week in the effort to derail the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As accuser Christine Blasey Ford has wavered over whether she would actually show up in Washington to discuss sex abuse claims, outlets like MSNBC have declared the judge will have a “big old blemish” either way. But veteran ABC journalist Cokie Roberts went in the opposite direction. In a Semptember 20 column for ABCNews.com, Roberts bluntly insisted:
While there were some overtly political statements targeting President Trump at the memorial service for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral on Saturday, much more of the service was focused on McCain’s life. And since the liberal media is the liberal media, they wanted to opine ad nauseam about how President Trump wasn’t invited. But during Sunday’s This Week, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scolded his colleagues for putting the focus on Trump instead of McCain.
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.
In the February 1 episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. Miranda Bailey goes into a competing hospital, convinced she is having a heart attack. This episode is heavy with flashbacks as past memories are triggered by this experience.
Even before President Trump gave his first State of the Union, the Left was complaining that he was going to look “presidential.” They still can’t accept that he is president, and gets to give presidential speeches. But Trump took that opportunity and fully exploited it. The Democrats sitting in the chamber weren’t conceding a thing. Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer scowled throughout.
To match their vicious pre-State of the Union address coverage, ABC lost its mind following President Trump’s first such address, slinging mud at the President for delivering a “divisive,” “gloomy,” and “sad speech” that did nothing to “unify” the country and instead “stok[ed]...racial tensions.”
After beginning the morning by dismissing President Trump’s first official State of the Union address as an event that would be quickly forgotten, the stacked liberal panel on ABC’s This Week was overjoyed that the Democrats had selected Congressman Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) to give the party’s response. They were excited about his good looks and his “moral voice,” because if the Kennedys are known for anything it’s a “moral voice.”
The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks engaged in a feeding frenzy over Michael Wolff’s gossip-filled book, as they ate up the salacious details in Fire and Fury. From January 3 through January 9, the networks stuffed their evening and morning programs with over two hours of coverage of the Wolff book and the subsequent fallout for former Donald Trump aide Stephen Bannon.
