Despite the fact that there were four North Korean nuclear tests under President Obama and only one under President Trump (none in almost 2 years) and gave everything away to Cuba for nothing, Sunday’s editions of ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today rushed to declare Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-un at the DMZ to be nothing more than just a photo op.
On Good Morning America Tuesday, the ABC news team behaved as if they were Democrats’ collective lawyer, trying to defend and justify the reasons why Democrats won’t funder border detention facilities. After fretting over the poor conditions at these detention centers, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce and anchor George Stephanopoulos went out of their way to defend Democrats and blame President Trump for the lack of funding.
The panel on Monday’s edition of The Situation Room obsessed over a segment of President Trump’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, where President Trump “becomes really angry at his Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney.” President Trump expressed his frustration with Mulvaney, who was audibly coughing as President Trump sat down with Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office, asking him to “please leave the room” if he had to cough again. One member of the panel, Bianna Golodryga, brought up a conspiracy theory suggesting that Mulvaney coughed on purpose so the President did not have to talk about his tax returns.
During Last Week Tonight Sunday, host John Oliver devoted nearly his entire show to advocating for the impeachment of President Trump while attempting to portray himself as neutral on the matter. Oliver appeared to have a newfound sense of motivation to push for impeachment following President Trump’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
At a gathering of Democrats in California on Saturday, 2020 candidates and party leaders stoked the hate of their base. But there was something of a backdraft when Speaker Nancy Pelosi took the stage and was drowned out by the crowd as they demanded she begin impeaching President Trump, much to the seeming excitement of ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday. The network had the added bonus of Democrats pushing for gun control.
After Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave his final word on the completed Mueller report Wednesday morning, all three networks broke in with live coverage demanding that it was now Democrats' chance to impeach Trump. ABC was the most heavy-handed in their coverage, with anchor George Stephanopoulos bringing up the impeachment topic at least eight times in a thirteen minute segment.
During Sunday’s morning newscasts, NBC’s Sunday Today was talking about how Democrats had to define Republicans as extreme on abortion while ABC’s Good Morning America asserted that the GOP was extreme. Meanwhile, the broadcast networks have almost completely ignored the Democratic Party’s support for abortions up until the day of birth and a failed attempt to legalize infanticide in Virginia.
Good Morning America scored the exclusive scoop of the first interview with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio as he became the 23rd Democrat to run for president in 2020. However, former Democratic operative turned host George Stephanopoulos avoided any mention of de Blasio’s hard-left stances on abortion, gun control or his total embrace of the Green New Deal. This as even the Mayor himself referenced his very liberal opinions.
Shock-jock radio host Howard Stern sat down with ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos for a Nightline interview that aired in parts on Monday’s Good Morning America. Stephanopoulos was very interested in letting the radio host rant about not “helping” Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election by having her on his show, beforehand.
On Wednesday night Highlands Ranch High School students and parents walked out of a vigil (meant to honor victims and heroes of the shooting) after politicians and gun control activists politicized the event. Only ABC’s Good Morning America, on Thursday, covered the outrage over gun control activists hijacking the memorial.
Despite President Trump’s strong condemnation of the recent synagogue shooting at the Chabad of Poway and anti-Semitism as a whole at a rally Saturday night, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd blamed Trump for the shooting during Sunday’s This Week on ABC. Dowd went so far as to claim Trump’s rhetoric gave the shooter “permission” to act.
All three networks led Thursday morning with former Vice President Joe Biden’s long-awaited announcement that he would run for president in 2020. ABC’s Good Morning America focused heavily on Biden’s appeal to Democrats’ “patriotism” and “American values,” with correspondent Terry Moran gushing about Biden taking back this “nationalism” message for “progressives.”
