The liberal media spent two years smearing President Trump and trying to delegitimize his presidency with Robert Mueller's investigation, which ending up exonerating him on collusion. Naturally, something like that calls for a victory lap and several spiked footballs. But Monday’s NBC Nightly News was not having any of it as chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson chided the President’s “vindictiveness” in victory.
In an attempt by network journalists to console themselves and their liberal viewers over Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing President Trump of Russian collusion, on Monday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows eagerly listed “scores” of other investigations Democrats were pursuing against the President, promising that Trump’s “legal problems continue.”
Buckle up, folks. Because the meltdowns we’re about to see concerning the principal conclusions of the Mueller Report via a letter from Attorney General Bill Barr will rival or top those seen on election night 2016. Upon being read portions of the Barr letter, MSNBC host and one-time Trump campaign correspondent Katy Tur was forced to painstaking admit that Mueller’s findings have “vindicate[d] the President on collusion.”
On Friday, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News made sure to include amidst their extensive coverage on the completion of the Mueller Report that, despite the lack of any future indictments from the Special Counsel, House Democrats still have an increasing number of ongoing investigations into every aspect of President Trump’s life that could prove perilous for the White House.
On her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson tried to offer a “reality check” to liberal super-fans of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. After reading from an Associated Press report that described Democrats collecting “earrings, paintings, prayer candles, valentines, ornaments” with Mueller’s name or image in hopes that he would bring President Trump’s downfall, Jackson warned that “his report is not going to be what everybody thinks it’s gonna be.”
On Monday, a newly-released USA Today/Suffolk University poll found that 50 percent of Americans agreed with President Trump’s assertion that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was a “witch hunt.” However, viewers of the Big Three broadcast networks would never know that since the evening and morning newscasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS completely ignored the story. Meanwhile, MSNBC did notice the results and went into panic mode.
On Monday, while both CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America managed to at least mention Beto O’Rourke receiving greater “scrutiny” and making “gaffes” over the weekend, NBC’s Today show skipped the Democratic presidential candidate’s unflattering stumbles in favor of gushing over his “eye-popping” fundraising numbers.
Apparently the fawning media coverage of Beto O’Rourke’s first day on the 2020 campaign trail was even too much for liberal Late Night host Seth Meyers. On his Thursday night show, aired early Friday morning, the NBC comedian actually took MSNBC to task for bizarrely obsessing over O’Rourke’s rental minivan while reporting on the former Texas Congressman making a campaign stop in Iowa.
On Thursday, the liberal media finally found one of the few things they could cheer on Republicans for. Of course, it involved the 12 Senate Republicans who voted to pass a resolution rebuking President Trump’s national emergency declaration for the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Or, as ABC News and NBC News described it, the “Republican rebellion”.
Is a politician who supports government-run health care, major gun restrictions, the radical Green New Deal and abortion liberal enough for the Democratic Party? That was the question MSNBC hosts asked on Thursday as they fretted that former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke may not be far left enough for Democratic voters in the 2020 presidential primary.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made headlines Monday afternoon when she told The Washington Post that she was against impeaching President Trump unless it was absolutely necessary. For the evening broadcasts of ABC News and NBC News, it was the second topic they covered after yet another deadly crash of a Boeing 737 MAX 8. But CBS News buried it deep in the last few minutes of the broadcast and only gave it a fleeting 17 seconds.
After what must have been an insanely painful 42 days for the White House press corps, Monday afternoon featured a White House press briefing and, needless to say, carnival barker, CNN chief White House correspondent, and infamous newsman Jim Acosta made sure to make this briefing count. Acosta used his allotted two minutes as best he could, tussling with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders over the Democratic Party’s issues with Jewish people and the President’s rhetoric as a source of what ills America.
