On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today show highlighted Andrew Pollack, the father of 18-year-old Stoneman Douglas High School shooting victim Meadow Pollack, talking to President Trump during an emotional White House listening session on Wednesday on preventing such mass killings. However, both network broadcasts chose to edit out Pollack telling the President “It’s not about gun laws right now.”
As they’ve done all week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent several reports touting the “impressive” and “passionate” teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida, who met with President Trump yesterday at the White House and who screeched “murderer” at Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the NRA’s Dana Loesch at CNN’s ruckus, scripted “townhall” last night.
ABC is apparently so devoted to touting liberal icons, that they will promote a competitor’s documentary if it’s about their mutual hero. On Good Morning America, February 9, anchor George Stephanopoulos and Nightline co-host JuJu Chang gushed over Netflix’s new documentary on feminist attorney Gloria Allred, which was released today, saying they “can’t wait” to watch it, before sharing their own interview with the infamous attorney.
Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos tried desperately to connect President Trump with a former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as a Russian agent working with the Kremlin during an interview on the ABC morning show. However, no matter how hard the former Clinton staffer pressed Page, he didn’t gain any ground in proving his Democrat-agenda-driven talking point.
The knives came out on ABC during their Sunday morning programming as they made President Trump and the GOP the target of their hyperbolic smear campaign following the release of the House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged misconduct by the FBI and Justice Department. And at one point during This Week, host George Stephanopoulos and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz suggested that the “discord” and “mistrust” sowed by Republicans was ultimately helping Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos practically had a conniption on Friday’s show, complaining he was "stunned" by a single tweet from the president questioning the FBI and Justice Department’s impartiality around “release the memo.” As soon as the show had begun, Stephanopoulos jumped right in to tout the tweet as the “bitter” final straw between Trump and the two organizations.
The 2016 election still isn’t over for the liberals in the media, who keep trying to find ways to prove that President Trump “obstructed justice” and should be impeached, just past a year into his presidency. Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor and former President Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos eagerly hoped they had finally found the evidence needed to oust Trump.
To match their vicious pre-State of the Union address coverage, ABC lost its mind following President Trump’s first such address, slinging mud at the President for delivering a “divisive,” “gloomy,” and “sad speech” that did nothing to “unify” the country and instead “stok[ed]...racial tensions.”
Well, that didn’t take long. Minutes before President Trump’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday, the major broadcast networks pulled out the long knives to attack the “embattled” and “deeply unpopular” President leading a GOP that’s “paying the political price in recent special elections” for a presidency whom people believe is working “against them.”
Time is everything, especially when it comes to understanding the media’s priorities. At the end of January, there were two marches the same weekend both claiming to stand for women. But the network coverage was anything but similar.
ABC led its Good Morning America coverage on day three of the government shutdown by sympathizing with Democrats over their plan to hold the government hostage until Republicans pass a spending bill with protections for DACA. Touting Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) blaming President Trump for not “negotiating” on the legislation, anchor George Stephanopoulos snapped at Sarah Sanders for suggesting that Schumer was playing political games over the spending bill.
ABC kicked off Sunday’s Good Morning America with five minutes dedicated to the government shutdown. And despite the fact that Democrats were bragging that they had the votes to do it, the liberal network trashed Republicans and touted how President Trump would take all the blame.
