In a disturbing example of just how far down the gutter they had sunk, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured back-to-back reports hyping opponents of President Trump deriding him and First Lady Melania Trump in a sexual manner. In sharp contrast, their broadcast network competitors CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight were classy enough to leave the low brow attacks out of their programs.
To kick off NBC Nightly News on Monday, the network huffed about how Trump was walking the fine line with America’s partner. After noting reports suggesting the Saudis were preparing to admit to killing Jamal Khashoggi, anchor Lester Holt chided the President. “Word of the acknowledgment comes just hours after Trump seemed to accept Saudi denials of any involvement while speculating Khashoggi may have died at the hand of rogue killers,” he reported.
What was supposed to be a rebuke of President Trump’s ridicule ended up drawing more laughs from most and scorn from others. In an overly dramatized campaign video out Monday, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) released the results of a DNA test that suggested she did have a Native American ancestor. The catch? It’s possible she was only 1/1,024th Native American. Despite that fact, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) promoted her campaign message and portrayed her as the victor.
Rapper Kanye West and Hall of Fame football star Jim Brown met with President Trump on Thursday to discuss criminal justice reform and to convince him that stop and frisk was a terrible policy. Kayne being Kayne, he stole the spotlight as he told the President, among other things, how much he appreciated him. Of course, during their evening programs, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) put a hyper-focus on Kayne and all but ignored why they were there.
Unemployment dipped to the lowest rate since December 1969 in September, but ABC, CBS and NBC evening news shows only spent exactly one minute combined sharing the strong economic news.
During and after the cloture vote Friday morning to move forward with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, NBC’s Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell held out hope that unnamed Republican Senators could change their minds to oppose Kavanaugh and that, amidst the onslaught of pressure (read: verbal harassment from the left), voting against the Judge is thinking “beyond reelection.”
With time running out for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to provide to some form of testimony with the Senate Judiciary Committee, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent their Wednesday evening broadcasts giving a boost to Democratic calls for an investigation into the Supreme Court nominee. Of course, they failed in their duty to inform their viewers that the FBI had already declined to investigate when the charges were brought to them over the weekend.
In a last-ditch effort to sink the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) sent a letter to the FBI asking them to investigate the candidate for an undisclosed reason. All Feinstein revealed to the public was that she received “new” information from a source she wouldn’t name. Apparently, NBC was the only broadcast network to not apply ‘the smell test’ since they were the only ones to run with it.
Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower or get any dirtier. In the midst of their September 11th broadcast, NBC Nightly News took below the belt shots at President Trump. They juxtaposed the number of deaths in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria with those killed 17 years ago. Then they made it seem as though he was “commemorating” the anniversary of the attack by “pumping his fist”. All while ignoring the son of a 9/11 victim begging Democrats to stop playing games with the event.
On Wednesday, The New York Times published a scathing op-ed trashing President Trump written by an anonymous senior White House official (or so the paper claims). The author pompously painted them self as part of a secret superhero team in the White House keeping the wildly unstable President from harming us all. Of course, the liberal media went absolutely bonkers for it. During the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and, NBC, they spent almost 15 minutes combined pushing the writer’s claims.
After the morning newscasts of ABC and CBS spent a total of 4 minutes and 44 seconds covering the criminal indictment of California Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter in the first 36 hours since the story broke, the number increased four-fold following another news cycle, with the total standing at 17 minutes and 13 seconds as of Friday morning.
On Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News remained aboard the proverbial liberal media party bus pushing Congress to impeach President Trump and delay or thwart Brett Kavanaugh from reaching the Supreme Court following Tuesday’s bad Trump headlines involving Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort.
