The mandatory machine recount in Florida wrapped up Thursday to the joy of Congressman Ron DeSantis as he unofficially became governor-elect. DeSantis won by 0.4 percent over Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. In spite of these facts, broadcast networks ABC and NBC, along with Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision, all refused to report DeSantis’s victory during their evening news programs.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
In a true act of anti-Semitism, the Hamas terrorist organization launched hundreds of Qassam rockets and other projectiles into southern Israel on Monday. While the Iron Dome defense system intercepted most of the weapons, a few managed to get through, striking homes and businesses. This attack, which many say was the largest since the 2014 war, didn’t get airtime on CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News. Instead, they hyperventilated about dumb high school kids apparently giving the “Nazi salute”.
As the first polls began the close, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were touting how confident the Democrats appeared despite lingering worries from 2016. As they were nearing the end of their political coverage for World News Tonight, ABC anchor David Muir noted: “the Democrats are projecting confidence as well, as you might expect.”
With roughly 24 hours until polls closed for the midterm elections, the liberal broadcast networks were out in force Monday evening as they pleaded with viewers to vote for Democratic candidates. From touting Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill as a moderate to blasting Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp for accusing Democrats of hacking to fantasizing about all the investigations of President Trump the Democrats would start, the liberal networks were all hands on deck.
President Trump and his family visited the Tree of Life synagogue on Tuesday to pay their respects to the victims of Saturday’s attack. While there, protesters took to the streets to denounce his visit much to the delight of the liberal media. So much so, that ABC spent more time during World News Tonight focused on the protesters than the actual funerals going on that day.
On Wednesday evening, as the broadcast network evening newscasts reported on a shooting attack on a Kroger in the Louisville, Kentucky, area, ABC stood out in not mentioning an armed citizen who shot at the gunman and might have prevented more shootings.
President Trump and the White House refused to bow to the liberal media’s assertions that he was the one responsible for bombs sent to CNN and other Democrats this week. In response, the liberal media spend most of Thursday throwing a temper tantrum. During ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News, the broadcast networks were clearly irritated as they took shot after shot at the President.
With investigators still trying to track down who sent bombs to CNN, the Clintons, and other prominent Democrats and still no motive in sight, liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC put the blame squarely on President Trump’s shoulders during their Wednesday broadcasts. This, as they ignored attacks against members of the Republican Party around the country for weeks.
This week, Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos confirmed that state Attorney General Ken Paxton was looking into a case where the state Democratic Party allegedly sent out mailers to noncitizens requesting they register to vote with documents that had the citizenship box checked off. Instead of covering this case (which had been known about since late last week) both ABC News and CBS News pushed Democratic claims of voter suppression in Georgia by the GOP.
Federal investigators are looking into who left a pipe bomb in the mailbox of shady liberal billionaire George Soros’ New York mansion Tuesday. In the wake of the bomb attack, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision) rushed to cover the attack and parrot Soros’ condemnation of the “politics of hate”. But their concern for Soros came after all of them had ignored violent assaults and threat against conservative candidates and lawmakers.
With the midterm elections just two weeks away, the liberal media have ramped up their efforts to drag their dreamboat, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke over the finish line in the Texas Senate race. With President Trump’s visit to campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R) on Monday, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on the opportunity boast about Beto’s qualities while downplaying his poor poll numbers.
