April 11th, 2023 1:15 PM

We all remember the liberal media’s Orwellian portrayal of the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 as “fiery but mostly peaceful.” Well, ABC kept the gaslight flowing on Tuesday with hate crime hoaxer John Quinones spinning lies and misleading Good Morning America viewers about a July 2020 self-defense shooting of a BLM “protester” by Army Sargent Daniel Perry, and the possible pardon he…

January 9th, 2023 1:54 PM

Seemingly on the side of criminals, ABC’s Good Morning America was appalled on Monday after they learned that an armed good Samaritan in Houston, Texas shot and killed an armed robber who was holding up an entire restaurant. They portrayed the hero as ducking police and the source of the fear in the restaurant that night. All of this was part of their anti-gun narrative that bars even…

July 21st, 2020 3:20 PM

ABC’s hidden camera show What Would You Do? has tried, and failed to make its point that Americans are a bunch of intolerant bigots, for twelve years now. Yet with a new season out this Summer, the network is shamelessly promoting it on their daytime shows.

On the May 30 edition of ABC’s What Would You Do?, per usual, John Quiñones set out to expose Americans as racist and homophobic.

After setting up a scenario in a hair salon in which a white hair stylist expressed…

Liberal ABC reporter John Quiñones admitted in an interview with Katie Couric on Friday that his What Would You Do? program often has him and his crew “in tears” as they set up ludicrous hidden-camera scenarios to see how everyday Americans would react. Given the premise of the program, one has to wonder if the tears are of joy or of sheer disappointment that most folks are basically decent…

May 28th, 2014 6:00 PM
An ABC “news” program dedicated to exposing bigotry once again sought to prove how awful the American people are. And once again, it was a huge failure.

Host John Quinones and crew developed a scenario for the idea of shopping while black.…

ABC's Quinones Fishes For Racist New Yorkers, Catches Nothing

July 22nd, 2013 5:32 PM
The July 19 broadcast of ABC’s “What Would You Do?” at first seemed to be devoid of any racial themes that usually plague the overly-contrived ABC "News" show.  Yet, they needed to insert a racial element to see if bystanders would stop a would-be thief in broad daylight. A man named Uvall is an actor playing your everyday American commuting to work.  He parks his car along the front of New…

July 17th, 2013 8:49 AM
With the Supreme Court ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act last month, you know that ABC’s “What Would You Do?” just had to produce a segment on gay marriage – again.  In the July 12 broadcast, the show decided to pick the liberal state of New Jersey -- a blue state for a change -- in order to find these nasty, homophobic Americans.  The scenario was simple.  Two lesbians walk into a local…

ABC Fails To Find Anti-Immigrant Americans In Red State

June 24th, 2013 4:57 PM
As I mentioned last week, ABC’s "news" program “What Would You Do?” features scripted actors dramatizing so-called “real life” events, which call out for ordinary Americans to intervene.  The program's producers love to gin up scenarios, which apparently are designed to bring out bigotry and racism from fellow Americans who are supposed to identify with the actors portraying the absurd…

ABC Trolling For Racist, Bigoted Americans Mostly Falls Flat...Again

June 21st, 2013 11:24 AM
The June 14 episode of ABC’s What Would You Do again trolled for the archetypal intolerant conservative American that are supposedly around every bend in two outrageous segments concerning a gay Boy Scout and a racist deli shop customer.  The show, which uses actors to play out outrageous scenarios to see how unsuspecting passers-by react, hosted the gay Boy Scout scenario at a roadside…
