Less than 24 hours after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, fill-in host Jonathan Karl interviewed Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday’s edition of ABC’s This Week. During the interview, Karl repeatedly slammed President Trump’s “rhetoric,” implying that it deserved “part of the blame” for the mass shootings that took place over the weekend.
TV reporters on cable and broadcast news networks are blaming President Trump for the two mass shootings that occurred over the weekend, with some even accusing the him of “promoting” racial violence. Since Sunday, supposedly objective reporters have framed the President’s supposed culpability as established fact. If these members of the press truly believe that the President’s rhetoric is responsible for the deaths of dozens of innocents, one wonders how they would like us to assess their own rhetoric about him and his administration.
It wasn’t 24-hours since the first of two tragic mass shootings on Saturday and ABC News was entrenched and spewing the liberal hate that demanded that President Trump be considered the cause of the violence. Suggesting it was “fair” to blame Trump for the shootings during Sunday’s Good Morning America, chief White House correspondent Jon Karl argued the shootings were “going to be something that he is going to have to answer for.”
In the wake of the “disaster” that was the Democratic-led House hearings with Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday, some in the liberal media were honest about how it blew up in their faces. Yet, during the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC, the liberal media were desperately holding onto the dream that Mueller would help Democrats impeach President Trump. But there were a couple of correspondents who weren’t convinced.
Journalists at ABC couldn’t hide their excitement over the upcoming Robert Mueller congressional hearing Wednesday morning, spinning it as the ideal time to impeach the President. Despite a failed attempt by one Democrat last week to secure the votes in the House for that cause, and the fact that the Justice Department says this hearing will not go beyond the bounds of the Mueller report, the Good Morning America team kept pushing the “i-word” repeatedly.
The Tuesday evening before the highly anticipated congressional testimony of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the liberal broadcast networks tried to reassure their viewers that the Democrats were going in prepared. Hyping how Democrats were “huddling” in “one last prep session”, the networks noted the Wednesday hearing “might be their last chance to convince the American public on impeachment.”
On Friday, all three network morning shows celebrated far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar returning home to a “hero’s welcome” in Minneapolis from her most ardent liberal supporters following President Trump’s controversial attacks against her. Reporters for CBS, ABC, and NBC all marveled at the staged event while slamming Trump and his supporters as racist.
Oh, the lengths that the liberal media will go to defend their far-left flanks. On Thursday, NBC Nightly News led with the “send her back” chant from a Wednesday night Trump rally that many across the spectrum have condemned, but instead of leaving it there, the controversy was used to defend the rampant anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as merely something that upsets Republicans.
Amid all the celebratory media coverage hailing the partisan stunt by House Democrats on Tuesday to pass a resolution condemning President Trump as racist, on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning, correspondent Peter Alexander particularly touted the “heavily diverse” liberal lawmakers supporting the legislation while “white men” in the GOP did not.
While analyzing the first Democratic debate, on Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America actually admitted the far-left ideology of many of the 2020 candidates and even fretted that those radical positions were “playing right into” President Trump’s reelection strategy.
On Wednesday, the network morning shows uniformly panned President Trump’s Tuesday night launch of his reelection bid in Florida, slamming the speech as “dark,” “scary,” and just rehashing the “same old grudges” against his “perceived enemies.” Reporters dismissed the event as just a continuation of Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a darling of the liberal media because of her young age and unabashed promotion of socialism. They celebrated her ludicrous Green New Deal while ignoring her many campaign finance violations and ethics questions. Now, during Sunday’s Good Morning America and This Week, ABC chief White House correspondent Jon Karl hailed the influence the Congresswoman could have over the 2020 Democratic primary process and perhaps “play kingmaker” with her endorsement.
