In their self-righteous letter calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to resign Monday, over 2,000 former Justice Department officials claimed he interfered with “the fair administration of justice,” by recommending a reduced prison sentence for Roger Stone. But there was no such letter when the DOJ inspector general found that the FBI had lied to the FISA Court in order to obtain warrants to spy on a Trump campaign aid. Of course, the same networks that blacked out how the top FISA judge accused the FBI of a criminal act were the same ones gushing about the new letter.
Taking a breather from blaming the country’s division solely on right-leaning Americans and railing against moderate female Republican senators who had issues with the Democratic impeachment managers, NBC political director Chuck Todd took time during Sunday’s Meet the Press to share his dread for what President Trump would say if the Senate acquitted him.
On Saturday, NBC’s Today show actually devoted an entire report to how voters in key swing states were suffering from “impeachment fatigue.” The segment highlighted “concerned” Democrats fearing the attempted removal of President Trump from office was “overshadowing” the 2020 campaign, while Republicans were found to be more energized heading into the election.
In his address to the nation on Wednesday regarding Iran’s missile attack on U.S. bases in Iraq, President Trump made reference to the fact that the Obama administration handed over roughly $1.7 billion to Iran as a ransom for American hostages and said it helped Iran fund the attack. Well, that triggered the liberal media who sprinted to the former President’s defense. CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang actually suggested it was “unfounded” for Trump to make the connection. And NBC ran to Obama-era liar Susan Rice for backup.
On Monday, the broadcast network morning newscasts collectively punted on former Vice President Joe Biden’s latest kooky statements from over the weekend, ranging but not limited to calling for fossil fuel executives to be jailed, giving life to a conspiracy theory that 5G networks could be making people sick, and calling a heckler an “idiot.” Instead, NBC’s Today decided to swoon about the possibility that, if elected, Biden would appoint former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court on the condition he accepted.
On Monday, the network morning shows seized on laughable Democratic spin accusing Senate Republicans of “failing to be impartial jurors” in the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump. This from the same media that hasn’t expressed any concern over Democratic senators running for president while presiding over the impeachment of the Republican incumbent they’re vying to replace.
The Democratic Party and media crusade to impeach President Trump didn’t appear to be going well Sunday, as New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew was set to vote against the Articles of Impeachment and become a Republican in the process. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today spent some of their mornings trying to convince the public it was no big deal. Yet, part of the intent of the hearings was to peel Republicans away from Trump, which would’ve been celebrated.
On Wednesday, NBC became obsessed with the idea that “the cloud of impeachment is shadowing the President at the NATO summit,” so much so that the network repeatedly hyped seemingly innocuous comments from world leaders about President Trump running late to a meeting, citing it as evidence of “trash talk” and attempts to “mock” the U.S. leader.
The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated almost three and a half minutes (3:28) of their Thanksgiving eve newscasts to hyperventilating about whether or not high winds would keep the balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade grounded. Meanwhile, the economic growth numbers from the summer were out and showed more positive news. NBC Nightly News was the only newscast to mention the growth, but they quickly dismissed it in favor of fretting over the trade war with China.
On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued the liberal media’s attempt to force-feed the American people every twist and turn of the left’s attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. Following up on their Monday night celebrations that a federal judge ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress, the ABC and NBC newscasts boasted about this new “blow” and “scathing judgement.”
Despite the fact, polls showed that as impeachment dragged on more and more people were souring on it, ABC, CBS, and NBC were excited for the possibility of even more House hearings. Their Monday excitement was spurred on by the ruling of a federal court judge, who said former White House Counsel Don McGahn had to testify before Congress. The ruling went against what the White House was hoping for and the broadcast networks were absolutely giddy thinking about this could affect impeachment.
MSNBC has tabbed a Bernie booster (Rachel Maddow) and Joe Biden fan (Andrea Mitchell) to be the lead moderators for Wednesday’s Democratic debate, so it’s a good bet the questions will be skewed from the left. It won't be the first time: In June, MSNBC hosted a two-night debate event where 69 percent of the questions to the very liberal field of candidates were from the left.
