Nightly News Skips Dow at 27,000, Other Nets Spare Just Seconds
Wall Street experienced another record-setting day July 11, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 27,000 for the first time ever. But you would know little about that new record if you were watching the three broadcast evening news shows that night. And nothing at all if you watched NBC Nightly News.
Nets Celebrate Ross Perot: 'Joined Clinton on the Attack' Against Bush
The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed to be in such a rush to praise Perot for his performance ’92 that they forgot to mention his age until the very last moments of their reports (as the transcripts below show). In fact, they focused so much on celebrating the effect he had on the election that only one of them (CBS Evening News) cared to mention how he died. But that too…
ABC Skips Criminal Justice Bill Signing; Hypes Corker Attacking Rush
On Friday, some Americans might have missed news that President Donald Trump signed into the law the bipartisan, landmark First Step Act.

Here We Go Again: CBS, NBC Push Another Bogus Mass Shooting Statistic
So, just like macabre clockwork. With Thursday’s mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, there were routine calls for more gun control from the liberal media machine. During their evening broadcasts, CBS and NBC tried to scare the wits out of their viewers by dubiously claiming that there had been 307 mass shooting this year alone, or almost one a day.…
CBS, NBC Celebrate Win for Democrat Accused of Anti-Semitism
In the midst of their midterm results coverage on Wednesday, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News touted the diversity of the Democratic Party’s field of winners. But in the process, they celebrated the election of Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. The problem? She’s been accused of anti-Semitism because of her anti-Israel stance.
ABC, NBC Suggest NFL Kneeling Wasn’t Unpopular Until Trump Spoke Out
When it came to reporting the policy change that evening, ABC and NBC appeared put off by the development. They both seemed to suggest that players kneeling wasn’t unpopular with fans until President Trump spoke out and pushed the inaccurate claim the players weren’t consulted. And neither spoke with players supportive of the decision.
Jobs Growth ‘Explodes:’ ABC, NBC Give It Just 39 Seconds Combined
February job gains came in at a whopping 313,000 new jobs, so much that NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt acknowledged it “blows away economists’ expectations.” The Wall Street Journal said expectations were at only 205,000. Unemployment also remained at the 17-year-low of 4.1 percent. But only one of the big three networks gave the good news any serious attention.
CBS Champions Sen. Flake, Claims He Was Victim of GOP ‘Mutiny’
During Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, the network ran back-to-back reports lionizing Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake for announcing his retirement while he denounced his party’s president. In a block of time lasting four minutes and 28 seconds, CBS bemoaned how Flake’s Republican colleagues didn’t join him in ripping President Trump and covering-up just how vastly…
Media Bull: 31 Dow Records Since Inauguration; All 3 Nets Censor 80%
The stock markets rose dramatically since President Donald Trump was elected. Just since his inauguration, the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed more than 10 percent and set 31 new closing record highs. The 30th record was set on July 31, 2017, when the Dow closed at 21,891, prompting speculations about the prospect of Dow 22,000. But none of the three broadcast news programs said anything…
ABC, NBC Downplay Trump Connection to Jobs Report
While financial news networks, companies and economists linked optimism over President Donald Trump’s proposed economic policies to the strong jobs report, only one of three broadcast networks — CBS — made that connection.
On March 10, The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced 235,000 new jobs were added in February — the first month entirely under the new president’…
CBS Knocks ‘Chaotic’ Trump Admin; 'It Was That Kind of Day'
From the first words out of anchor Scott Pelley on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, one had to know what kind of newscast it would be. Throughout the newscast’s A-block, every segment involved almost exclusive criticism of the Trump administration on issues ranging from the border to the media to Syrian refugees to trade agreements.
CBS Hypes Environmentalists Scrambling to Save EPA Data from Trump
One of the most frightening unknowns for the liberal media is how President Donald Trump plans to rein in the rampaging Environmental Protection Agency. The Trump administration recently banned the agency from using its social media accounts until further notice. This apparently spooked CBS Tuesday, because on Evening News they glorified the efforts of environmentalists who are trying desperately…
ABC, CBS Spotlight Assaults on Trump Supporters; NBC Censors
ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts all devoted air time to racially-charged incidents in schools in the wake of the election. However, NBC Nightly News stood out from its competitors for failing to mention the violence against Donald Trump supporters in recent days. ABC's World News Tonight featured cell phone video of a California high school student being punched for supporting Trump…
Only CBS Notices Report That U.S. Manipulated ISIS Success Claims
