Not long after they had insisted President Trump treated the coronavirus press briefings as though they were “a reality TV show,” ABC and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos invited former Vice President Joe Biden onto This Week to buoy his oxygen-less campaign. One of the softballs the Clinton lackey tossed to Biden encouraged him to blame Trump for the deaths caused by the coronavirus. While the crisis was only part of their discussion, Stephanopoulos steered clear of the recent sexual assault allegations against his guest. Something he was used to doing from his time in the Clinton White House.
Towards the end of Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl got the opportunity to plug his new tell-all book about covering President Trump to co-anchor George Stephanopoulos. Though the interview was very short, the two journalists managed to fit in as much Trump-bashing as they could. Karl bemoaned to Stephanopoulos that the president was the same man now as he was in 2016, and his “mental illness” was being spun as a good leadership quality, by his own staff.
After weeks of the broadcast network using the coronavirus pandemic as a cudgel to attack the Trump administration, on Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America could only bother to spend 10 seconds on their own poll finding that 55% of Americans approve of the President’s handling of the crisis.
While it’s the media’s job to inform the public with facts during a pandemic, liberals in the media have instead chosen to taken advantage of the situation by pushing a big government agenda down everyone’s throats during their coronavirus coverage. Sunday, MSNBC let New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio fearmonger over why we need nationalized everything to combat the virus’s spread. Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the news network let New York Governor Andrew Cuomo push forward the same argument.
During the past few days, officials with President Trump’s re-election campaign and GOP California Senator Devin Nunes have taken legal action against the Washington Post regarding opinion editorials that defamed the Republican occupant of the White House and were described by Nunes as a “WaPo hit piece.”
It was just another morning on ABC’s Good Morning America where one former aide to a Democrat president sat down for a friendly chat with another former aide to a Democrat president. Ex-Clinton staffer and GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos brought on Obama chief of staff and former mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel to tout his new book celebrating what else? Chicago’s liberal policies.
Isn't it the job of the press to vet the presidential candidates? On Sunday's This Week on ABC, former Bush political director Sara Fagen said Bernie Sanders "really hasn't been vetted yet." But wait -- he ran for president in 2016, and wasn't vetted? Chris Christie just put it out there: The press doesn't want to do the vetting on Bernie. So much for our brave guardians of democracy.
Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos worked with disgraced former Democrat congresswoman Katie Hill, to revamp her reputation. Hill resigned last November after a bizarre sex scandal with a campaign staffer came to light, but Stephanopoulos praised Hill as a “resilient woman” who should have “stayed and fought” against her critics.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America on ABC, the network celebrated former NBA player Dwyane Wade and his actress wife, Gabrielle Union’s decision to transition their pre-teen son into a girl. Co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts hailed the child’s “courage” and “wisdom” while encouraging Wade to share his woke parenting knowledge with less enlightened Americans.
Just like their cable news peers, ABC chose to complain about President Trump’s State of the Union address last night, instead of celebrate it. On Good Morning America Wednesday, anchor George Stephanopoulos and chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl recounted the national address entirely from the perspective of the Democrats, serving up judgement only for President Trump and Republicans while seeming to justify Democrats’ rude outbursts and showboating.
With NBC need of a panic room on Tuesday night after President Trump’s State of the Union and CBS needing a thank you card from Trump, ABC came down closer to the peacock network. For ABC, they repeatedly harped on the “political” President honoring the “controversial and divisive” and “racist” Rush Limbaugh to what they deemed a slap in the face to the Tuskegee Airmen Trump hailed earlier in his speech.
As ABC News was wrapping up the politics segment of Sunday’s Good Morning America, co-anchor Dan Harris and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos shared their deep-seated fears of how President Trump would govern after his likely impeachment acquittal on Wednesday. “Assuming that he is acquitted, which it looks like he certainly will be, what kind of impact do you think that will have on his governing style and his campaign style,” Harris wondered.
