In just three nights of coverage, ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts spent more than 11 minutes talking about the threat of recession and economic worries mostly tied to one economic signal. The main reason for concern was that the yield on a particular short-term versus long-term Treasury bond inverted (generally long-term bonds have higher yields) and spooked investors on Aug. 14. This sent the Dow down by more than 800 points.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
With the so-called “inverted yield curve” for bonds creeping up on Wednesday, ABC and NBC sprinted to stoke fears that “a recession could be on the horizon”, as NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker declared. But over on CBS Evening News, chief financial analyst Jill Schlesinger was telling viewers to “run your life as if this were just any old day.”
President Trump will be visiting with victims of both the Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas mass shootings on Wednesday and paying respects to those killed. But the liberal media seem annoyed that he was doing something thoughtful.
As NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’Agostino exposed Tuesday afternoon, the liberal broadcast networks were doing their best to avoid telling their viewers that the gunman behind the Dayton mass shooting was an admitted ‘leftist’. But ABC’s World News Tonight was the first flagship network news program to break that trend Tuesday evening when they footnoted that fact.
Immediately following President Trump’s address on what his administration will do in response to the mass shootings over the weekend, ABC’s journalists were ready to pounce. Good Morning America co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Cecilia Vega slammed Trump’s words as “empty” and “lacking self-reflection” on how his “rhetoric contributed” to these shootings. Stephanopoulos also complained to correspondent Mary Bruce about how Trump and Republicans weren’t doing anything to address gun control.
The Trump administration made positive headlines on Wednesday after Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced the United States was looking at allowing FDA-approved drugs to be imported from foreign counties, such as Canada, where they were cheaper. Despite previously decrying the skyrocketing price of prescription drug costs, that evening, CBS Evening News chose to ignore that major proposal to aid struggling American families and instead hyped a new statue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
At an event in Jamestown, Virginia Tuesday, President Trump celebrated the contributions African-Americans have to American society: “African Americans have built, strengthened, inspired, uplifted, protected, defended, and sustained our nation.” But ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News instead chose to hype the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus who boycotted the event with Democratic state delegate Delores McQuinn exclaiming: “We must never allow anyone to dismantle and to erode democracy.”
Almost two weeks after they showed their viewers how to evade Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on their evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC marveled at their work Tuesday night as they celebrated the activists who obstructed ICE raids last week.
With the first week of the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell in the books, it has showcased a CNN-like penchant for liberal bias and punditry masquerading as reporting. On Friday, the Trump coverage offered an embrace of anti-Semitic, corrupt, and far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by attacking the President for “demonizing” her to please his “anti-immigrant base.” To make matters worse, an additional segment skewed the President’s “go back” tweet with the help of at least two covert liberal activists.
Oh, the lengths that the liberal media will go to defend their far-left flanks. On Thursday, NBC Nightly News led with the “send her back” chant from a Wednesday night Trump rally that many across the spectrum have condemned, but instead of leaving it there, the controversy was used to defend the rampant anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as merely something that upsets Republicans.
It was another bad day on Wednesday for The Resistance as it was revealed that the Southern District of New York had ended their probe concerning the Trump Organization and alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. And on cue, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to acknowledge this while ABC's World News Tonight only gave it a 16-second news brief.
