You know how a girl, when she really likes a boy, will nervously brush her hair back? Check out the move of ABC reporter Paula Faris as she gushes to Beto O'Rourke: "you're a rock star!" When Beto demurs, Faris insists: "no, you really are!" Faris did stop short of asking Beto to autograph her arm, but the adoration was unmistakable.
At a recent campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, President Trump told the crowd that Democrats were “openly inviting millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overwhelm our nation. The Democrats want caravans. They like the caravans.” On Sunday, the liberal journalists of ABC’s Good Morning America were irritated that Trump would call them out and claimed there was no proof of that and said the allegation was “unfounded”.
In a big legal victory for President Trump, a federal judge late Monday tossed out a defamation lawsuit filed against him by porn star Stormy Daniels and her lawyer/possible 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti, demanding they pay Trump’s attorneys fees. When it came to Tuesday mornings’s broadcast network newscasts, the news all but fell on deaf ears with only 63 seconds of coverage and none mentioning the judge’s request that Daniels pay for Trump’s attorney fees.
Amid all the media hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious 60 Minutes interview, one common theme that emerged on Monday morning was all three broadcast networks fretting over his skepticism of man-made climate change. Anchors and correspondents were aghast that Trump could have any doubt in the wake of a recent “dire” United Nations report on the global climate.
In the wake of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a raging liberal mob stormed the Supreme Court building. Some climbed on the statues while others clawed and banded on the massive bronze doors. At first, the liberal media tried to deny the mob existed despite airing footage of it. But judging by ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the liberal media had apparently moved on to calling the right hypocrites for pointing out the mob.
In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.
ABC’s Good Morning America strongly rebuked President Trump Tuesday morning for daring to suggest that our country’s judicial system runs on the concept of “innocent until proven guilty.” Trump made these comments during the public swearing-in ceremony of Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday evening, adding that Kavanaugh was “proven innocent” under “historic scrutiny.” That last line really irked ABC reporter Cecilia Vega who declared repeatedly how false this was.
As everyone already knew, Democrats were never going to be satisfied with a one week FBI investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. As Friday draws nearer, journalists are aiding desperate Democrats, who see that Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations will not hold water, in coming up with a new strategy of how they will block Kavanaugh’s confirmation; namely, that he allegedly lied under oath. On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos promoted that last ditch effort in his interview with one of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.
During the show trial against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last Thursday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (NC) stood out as the Supreme Court nominee’s most ardent defender when he took on the liberal smear machine in a fiery speech that rallied many on the right. That fire was still present during an interview on ABC’s This Week where he took the liberal media head on and called them out for failing to scrutinize Kavanaugh’s accusers.
The FBI investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh was only a couple days old and the liberal media already had the heavy equipment out to dig up the goalpost. Despite spending roughly a week comparing Kavanaugh’s confirmation to that of Justice Clarence Thomas and touting the speedy FBI investigation then, Sunday’s Good Morning America worried it was “overly restricted”. They were also eager to know what happens if Kavanaugh was the one caught lying.
During ABC’s coverage of the Kavanaugh hearings, correspondent Terry Moran described Kavanaugh as “a man struggling to keep himself from disintegrating, from falling apart on national TV.” He added that Kavanaugh “roared with anger, unjudicious raw anger, and wept, as Cokie pointed out.”
Well, it looks like there will be quite a competition among the broadcast and cable networks for the services of Republican Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) once he retires. ABC did its part to suck up to Flake on Friday, lauding his decision to cave on the nomination of Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh by demanding an FBI probe.
