On Monday, NBC’s Today show was excited by the prospect of Democrat “rising star” Beto O’Rourke holding a “counter-rally” to President Trump’s upcoming visit to the border in El Paso, Texas. As she promoted the former congressman and failed Senate candidate’s protest event, reporter Kristen Welker declared that it was “going to be quite a split screen.”
On Monday’s Today show, NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker eagerly touted the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 50 percent of Americans blamed President Trump for the partial government shutdown. However, missing from her report was any mention of the survey showing a rise in negative opinion of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
President Trump has never hidden his disdain for many of the persons in the liberal press, whom he has often called “the enemy of the people.” An example of that dislike took place early Wednesday afternoon, when the GOP official was signing an anti-human trafficking bill into law. During the event, Trump offered to take questions from the reporters present, including Jonathan Karl, ABC’s chief White House correspondent, who demonstrated one of the reasons the president does not hold the mainstream media in high regard.
Radical progressive Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made headlines late last week when video surfaced showing her enthusiastically proclaiming “we’re going to impeach the motherf***er!” And after pushing out a tweet seemingly to question the validity of what was caught on camera, NBC News anchors and reporters laughed about it during Sunday Today.
After Friday’s Good Morning America ignored the vulgar promise by Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) to “impeach the motherf***er” in reference to the President, World News Tonight arrived on scene and did a boilerplate segment while the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News again covered Tlaib as their morning counterparts did, but CBS decided to level the tired liberal media line about how “Republicans pounced” and NBC dubbed it as having triggered “a barrage of Republican backlash.”
With the deadline for a budget to fully fund the federal government fast approaching (Friday), a major sticking point in the negotiations has been President Trump’s insistence of $5 billion for a border wall. But that may have changed Tuesday after the White House signaled it was open to compromise. Despite that glimmer, ABC and NBC both used their evening broadcasts to stoke fears of a looming government shutdown and downplayed the chance for a deal.
The left is up in arms because the Republican-controlled Wisconsin legislature is actually passing bills during their lame-duck session and some of them pertain to the offices of governor and attorney general. According to Democrats and their lapdog liberal media, the elected GOP representatives were not listening to the will of the people and were staging a “legislative coup”. Or, at least that’s what ABC and NBC wanted their viewers to believe during their Tuesday evening broadcasts.
It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend, then he had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, his claim to fame porn star Stormy Daniels, had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing law suits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.
The day before the Mississippi Senate runoff the liberal media trying desperately to drag Democrat Mike Espy over the finish line by dragging GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith through the mud. They’re putting all their money into smearing Hyde-Smith as a racist and the product of a racist state. During their Monday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC did everything they could to attack her, with one going so far as to attack her teenage daughter with lies about attending a segregated school.
Dating back to Abigail Adams in the late 1700s (and early 1800s), America’s First Ladies have a long history of getting involved in their husbands’ administrations and touching on everything from policy to politics. But according to today’s liberal media, everything the Trump administration did was somehow unprecedented. Take Tuesday, for instance: First Lady Melania Trump got involved in the West Wing when she publicly called for the firing of Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show was giddy with excitement over Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema winning the extremely close Senate race in Arizona against Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally. The word “wow” was tossed out three times during a two-minute report on the straggling midterm election result, along with hopes that the usually red state was turning “purple.”
Only hours after the midterm elections, on Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show was already looking to the 2020 presidential campaign, eager to discuss which Democrats were “getting serious about taking on President Trump.” In addition to some of the usual names, the report also touted Democrats who went down to defeat on Tuesday as “future stars” of the party.
