Following President Trump’s meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin last Monday, ABC was the first broadcast network to boost hysterical cries of “treason” from loony leftists. During Sunday’s This Week, the network appeared to be getting their employees fitted for their tinfoil hats as they kicked up the lunacy with incessant suggestions that the President was under the direct control of Russia.
As ABC’s Good Morning America continued spinning outrage over President Trump’s summit yesterday with Vladimir Putin, anchor George Stephanopoulos turned to anti-Trump Republican Jeff Flake for solutions on how to stop Trump.
All three networks broke in with live coverage of the presidential press conference in Helsinki, Finland this morning, as President Trump met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. After setting the stage with pessimistic predictions and whining during their morning shows today, ABC broke in shortly before to compare Trump to Obama and Hillary Clinton, arguing that they were much tougher on Russia than Trump has been. Jonathan Karl even quoted a factually untrue smear tweet from an Obama official and used it to play up the former president’s record with Putin.
Monday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America bashed President Trump for daring to keep his meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday, for interfering in the 2016 presidential election. Touting the Democrats’ argument, ABC anchors and reporters slammed Trump for continuing to go ahead with the “dangerous” pre-planned summit that started today in Helsinki, Finland, and complained that the meeting was a failure already.
On Wednesday, network morning show coverage of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh dropped off significantly, with combined air time of less than two minutes. However, the ABC, NBC, and CBS broadcasts still managed to use that brief amount of reporting to tout Democrats “launching all-out war” against the federal judge.
Moments after Monday night’s White House event concluded in which President Trump announced D.C. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, ABC News ripped into Kavanaugh and sought to cast doubt on his confirmation as “not a slam dunk” that’ll trigger “a battle royale in the Senate.”
On Thursday, all three network morning shows hyperventilated over the “earthquake” and “crisis” brought about by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement on Wednesday. In unison, hosts and correspondents predicted an “epic battle” over confirming whoever President Trump nominated to replace Kennedy. Reporters promised viewers months of “ugly” and “bitter” rancor in Washington over the appointment.
Providing yet another reason to defund public broadcasting, PBS has tapped liberal Republican and CNN political commentator Margaret Hoover to relaunch conservative icon William F. Buckley’s legendary public affairs program Firing Line. As Hoover appeared Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote the new show, co-host George Stephanopoulos teed up a clip of her grilling House Speaker Paul Ryan and accusing the GOP of racism.
After airing a full report on Friday’s Good Morning America about the controversy swirling around left-wing Full Frontal host Samantha Bee over her vile attack on First Daughter Ivanka Trump, ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos and 10Ten Media’s Larry Hackett reacted to the story by blaming President Trump for creating an environment of incivility and wondering if Bee was already “out of the woods.”
Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. MSNBC host Chris Matthews was frustrated that “reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box” compared to gun-rights voters and was frustrated that the NRA seemed to be “immune to justice.” Celebrities also engaged in the demonization of gun-rights supporters. The following is a collection (so far) of the ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters in the wake of the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting.
For the liberal media, the only real problem for America when came to gun violence was that pesky Second Amendment and your access to firearms. And while they talked a good game about an “all of the above” solution, their only goal was to restrict your rights. A grade-A example of this kind of attitude was on display Sunday during ABC’s This Week, where host George Stephanopoulos grilled Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick about gun control for his state while ignoring Patrick’s point regarding the devaluation of life by our culture.
George Stephanopoulos is still working hard to defend powerful men accused of sexually harassing women. The former Bill Clinton operative turned journalist on Thursday interrogated Linda Vester, the woman who accused Brokaw of unwanted sexual advances and groping. Stephanopoulos, who stood by Clinton as numerous women accused him, lectured Vester: “Tom Brokaw is pretty angry.”
