All three networks spent time Wednesday hyping radical Swedish teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg being honored by Time Magazine today with their “Person of the Year” award. Journalists from ABC, NBC, and CBS all praised the “deserving” “good choice” and touted the teen “taking on” world leaders while “inspiring” other teens to become climate evangelists.
Appearing exclusively on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning, Time magazine editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal announced the liberal publication’s Person of the Year would be radical teenage climate crusader Greta Thunberg. The network hosts were predictably thrilled by the pick as they proclaimed that Thunberg “embodies student activism.”
After showing little journalistic interest in trying to find out the identity of the anonymous government whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry against President Trump, on Monday, NBC’s Today show touted that the unknown bureaucrat was on the short list to be Time magazine’s Person of the Year. Half of the top ten list was comprised of prominent liberal figures.
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.”
Vice President Mike Pence was in New Hampshire on Thursday to file President Trump's paperwork for that state's Republican Primary and afterwards gave a brief speech to supporters where he laid out the administration's case for re-election. One of the things Pence cited was the country's positive economic situation since 2017 and even MSNBC Live had to concede the positive economic situation in the country is currently quite good, so how did the anti-Trump network spin this one? By saying credit actually belongs with former President Obama, of course.
On Monday, NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show welcomed MSNBC political analyst and MoveOn.org chief public affairs officer Karine Jean-Pierre on the program to promote her new book, Moving Forward, which was billed as part memoir, part “handbook” for left-wing political activism. However, none of Jean-Pierre’s radical political views were questioned during the fawning segment.
According to a Tuesday segment on MSNBC Live, American voters do not trust female political candidates and are biased against them. You would think such an accusation would require evidence, but you would be wrong. The segment also provided host Craig Melvin, former Hillary Clinton aide Zerlina Maxwell and All in Together CEO Lauren Learner an opportunity to sing the praises of Elizabeth Warren.
On his Thursday show, MSNBC Live host Craig Melvin invited in Jacob Frey, the mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota, to discuss President Trump's campaign rally in that city as well as the price tag that comes with it. After the segment was over, the viewer was left to conclude that Trump is a hypocrite and a cheat who doesn't pay his security bills, but Melvin left out some crucial facts that render this controversy rather non-controversial.
Over the past couple of weeks, the dominant media have displayed a classic example of their double standard in deciding which police shootings are worthy of coverage and which are less so. The networks that repeatedly hype stories that give the wrong impression that nearly all police shooting victims are black -- even though about 75 percent are either white or Hispanic -- recently gave substantial attention to the trial of a white female police officer who killed an innocent unarmed black man, Botham Jean.
In the midst of rightfully calling out President Trump for some of his overheated rhetoric reacting to the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, on Tuesday, MSNBC immediately undermined its criticism by engaging its own extreme rhetoric and suggesting that “heavily armed” Trump supporters would march on Washington “to protect their president.”
While talking to former Hillary Clinton campaign senior adviser Adrienne Elrod about the “onslaught” of corruption allegations being leveled against Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, visibly frustrated MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin pleaded with her to give the Biden campaign a strategy to deal with “the whackos out there who believe this nonsense.”
The three major broadcast networks spent time promoting radical environmental activism on Friday’s morning broadcasts. Teens and children conducted a global “strike” this morning against climate change ahead of a United Nations summit on the subject. ABC, NBC and CBS couldn’t get enough of the youths' liberal activism, gushing about the kids as young as 9 years old walking out of school to “lead the way” in the political movement.
