Even as NBC’s Today show recently reported that climate change would actually cause fewer hurricanes in the Atlantic during the 2018 season, on Saturday, CBS This Morning warned viewers that warming ocean temperatures could potentially lead to hurricanes in the Pacific hitting the coast of California.
One of the most interesting races in the 2018 slate of elections is the contest between incumbent GOP Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Beto O’Rourke, a “Democratic darling.” However, when anchor Elaine Quijano of the CBSN streaming video channel reported that Cruz had raised $3.2 million during the first quarter of 2018 and O’Rourke got $6.7 million, more than twice that amount, she asked Scott Braddock of The Quorum Report if the Democratic challenger would be able to keep pace “when outside money starts rolling in.”
On Monday, EPA Director Scott Pruitt announced that he would be putting an end to the Obama-era policy known and the Clean Power Plan. The plan put stiff regulations on new and existing coal-fired power plants which resulted in many being closed down, miners to be let go, energy bills to skyrocket, and put greater strain on the power grid. All in the name of so-called green energy. CBS Evening News was put off by the EPA’s reversal and turned to China for their example for how the U.S. should operate.
CBS Evening News blunted marijuana's appeal after reporting how getting high could leave users violently ill. CBS has a history of touting marijuana as a medical “miracle” and economic “gold rush,” but on Dec. 28, the network hashed out the symptoms of a marijuana-induced illness called Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS).
How many more broadcast bust-ups will it take before America finally decides to make its presidential election debates tolerable again? I can't take it anymore. Can you? For the past three cycles -- 2008, 2012, and 2016 -- I've chronicled the depressing, systemic bias of left-leaning partisans whom the Commission on Presidential Debates routinely installs as "moderators."
The 2016 presidential and vice presidential debates have already been notable for their bias, with NBC’s Lester Holt pounding Donald Trump with a skewed set of questions during the first debate, and CBS’s Elaine Quijano doing the same with Mike Pence on Tuesday. So what should viewers expect at tomorrow night’s town hall-style debate? A look at the past six town hall debates finds — with one exception — each of the moderators has favored calling on audience members who planned to ask liberal-themed questions.
After some time off from blogging TBS’s Full Frontal and an acknowledgement from the show that yours truly lives rent free inside their heads, I checked back in on Samantha Bee’s unfunny program as she opined that the vice presidential debate featured “Hillary Clinton’s care bear” Tim Kaine facing “homophobic Race Bannon” known as Republican Mike Pence.
In the moments following Tuesday’s lone 2016 vice presidential debate, ABC and NBC did their best to offer an overarching spin that while Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) constantly and in many cases rudely interrupted Republican Governor Mike Pence (Ind.) and moderator Elaine Quijano, the debate won’t matter much to final result and Kaine actually won despite his lack of decorum.
Following Tuesday’s vice presidential debate between Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) and Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence (Ind.), Media Research Center president Brent Bozell released a statement on his belief that Pence won despite questioning from CBS News correspondent and moderator Elaine Quijano.
Winning is a matter of faith for some of Team America at the Rio Olympics. Except journalists only seemed to care about Islamic faith and almost nothing about Judeo-Christian beliefs. So much so that the broadcast networks covered the Islamic faith of one Olympian more than 100 times more than the Judeo-Christian beliefs of five gold-medal winners.
The broadcast networks routinely prioritize animal life over human life. This Memorial Day weekend was no exception.
Over the long weekend, 69 citizens were shot across Chicago. At the same time, a gorilla named Harambe was shot after a toddler fell into the animal’s enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. ABC, CBS and NBC spent 54 times more on the death of one gorilla than they did on the shootings (and, in some cases, death) of human beings in Chicago.
CBS Evening News's liberal bias was blatant on Friday, as their "young adults" panel discussing the issue of "the excessive use of force by police – especially against minorities" was made up entirely of people who have participated in the protests decrying the grand jury decisions in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. Correspondent Elaine Quijano asked, "How many of you have been involved with the protests that have taken place in the wake of Ferguson?" All six panelists raised their hand or nodded their head.
